A QUICK THANK YOU & AND SOME HELPFUL DOMESTIC ABUSE LINKS

OK, I’m a day late, but with a poorly toddler to look after, what can you do?!  Thank you to EVERYONE who commented on or shared my open letter to women in abusive relationships last week. It was a post that I’d wanted to write for a while and in all honesty, one that I was very fearful of posting. Hitting that publish button took me a few seconds and

LIFE: A letter to women in abusive relationships – from a survivor of one, me

EVERY week in the UK two women are killed by a current or former male partner. Yesterday, I also discovered that around 30 women a DAY attempt suicide as a result of domestic violence. Chills your blood doesn’t it? As a woman who survived an abusive relationship in my late teens, I consider myself one of the lucky ones. But for the ones who aren’t so lucky at the moment,

LIFE: Looking forward to BritMums Live!

WITH the last few weeks whizzing by in a New York minute, I can hardly believe that in mere days I will be attending my first blogging conference and meeting up with some lovely blogging pals at Brit Mums Live. As the UK’s largest blogging conference, it’s safe to say that I’ve wanted to attend for a couple of years now and so, when a very kind freelancing client of

LIFE: Stuff I’ve fallen in love with recently. Discoveries and the like.

I WASN’T sure whether to put this post under my secrets or life category. After a little deliberation though, I opted for life in the end. (Because it’s what life is all about isn’t it?! Discovering stuff?) But anyway…I’m going off the point here. As it’s always good to show some appreciation, here’s a quick round up of little discoveries that I’ve loved or enjoyed recently. Or in other words,

LIFE: Amazing advice (in tweets) from incredible women

SO today’s post is completely different than what it was originally going to be. Why, I hear you ask? Well, because last night I hopped onto Twitter before bedtime and found myself favouriting tweet after tweet from the Stylist Magazine team from their Life Lessons event held last night. Seriously, it got kinda ridiculous with the amount of favouriting I was doing! And then I thought, dammmm, this advice is

FRIDAY FIVE: A wish list

SOMETIMES I come across an online shop that just makes me feel like I’ve entered home. A fashion home. You know that lovely warm feeling you get when you browse a collection and find yourself grinning from ear to ear because everything in it is just so YOU! Feels good doesn’t it? Finding a stylish retailer that seems to know exactly what you want to wear is pretty rare let’s

LIFE: Pouting In Heels turns 2! (And I missed it!)

YOU know your life is incredibly busy when you miss a milestone. Which is exactly what has happened to me folks, as alas, I have missed out on my little ol’ blog turning 2! I only realised this yesterday when I thought to myself, I’ll just double check when I published my first post. *palm to head* Anyway, for some reason, I had it in my brain that it was

LIFE: An interview where I talk freelancing, motherhood and blogging

SINCE entering the world of freelancing over three and a half years ago, I have lost track of the number of emails I have received from people asking me for my advice about making the big leap. I’ve written about my freelancing journey pretty extensively in the past (you can catch all of my freelancing posts and tips on my professional site here) and am always happy to talk about
