LAST night I was scrolling down my Instagram feed when I came across this phrase. I loved it immediately because of it’s simplicity and it’s brilliance. I mean, it’s just so true isn’t it? As a woman in her thirties, I like to think that when it comes to supporting, encouraging and inspiring my fellow sisters I’ve got things covered. Indeed, really I guess that this is what my blog

LIFE: My ‘cover girl’ moment!

VERY very occasionally you get a surprise email that lands in your inbox which is so amazing, so fantastic, it is almost too good to be true. And so, it was, on a fairly typical day in December that a very untypical email arrived in my inbox and made me squeal with joy.

LIFE: Losing my blogging mojo…

THOSE of you who read my wee ramblings on a regular basis may have noticed that I’ve been a bit quiet on the blogging front of late. I wasn’t going to say anything about my disappearance – in fact I was hoping you all wouldn’t notice ;-) – but after receiving a number of concerned tweets and emails, I thought I’d best pop by to let you all know, that
