9 tips to help you juggle freelancing with parenting

I’VE been freelancing for four heady years now and continue to love it, as much as ever. In fact, if I’ve ever met you, I have no doubt done a great deal of waffling on about how brilliant it is. (Sorry about that, but what can I say, it’s just FANTASTIC!) Freelancing enables me to work on creative projects that I enjoy, get paid well (and fairly) for my skils

Five common mistakes women make when it comes to love

THERE is nothing as consuming, powerful or magnificent as love. But boy oh boy, it ain’t half tricky at times. Relationships are wonderful that is true (or at least they should be) but as we all know, they can also be tough and quite frankly, a challenge! Like many of us, I have made some humongous mistakes in my life when it comes to matters of the heart. Some real

The night I dined with Manolo Blahnik (& German Vogue)

SOMETIMES, there are moments in life that are just so fabulous, you have to pinch yourself really hard to make sure that it’s actually really happening. That you’re not really dreaming and going to wake up and be back to reality with a hard, cold bump. This night, as you can probably imagine, was one of them. I met the legendary Manolo Blahnik many years ago, at a small ‘soiree’

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

A letter to women in abusive relationships – from a survivor, 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
