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.

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?

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. The email was from a journalist from Essentials magazine inviting me to be on the cover (!)

LIFE: Happy New Year!

BEFORE I go and celebrate the New Year with (another) huge feast and a tipple or two (it just has to be done!), I just wanted to pop by to wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR! My wish for you all is that 2014 will be your happiest, most loving, most successful, most peaceful, most stimulating, most exciting, most wondrous year of your life, yet. Remember, as always,

LIFE: A letter to 2013

AT the end of last year, I wrote a little letter to 2012, to thank it for giving me one of the best years of my life. (You can read all about it why it was here.) I found that writing the letter was a lovely and cathartic way to reflect on the 12 months that had gone by and so as we say goodbye to one year and look

LIFE: Wishing you all a magical Christmas!

I KNOW, I know, I know. You’re all snowed under with last minute shopping, wrapping and delivering of gifts and feeling stressed, but I just want to grab your attention, ¬†just for a few minutes, to wish you all a truly magical Christmas! May your festive spirit be in full bloom, may your presents be bundles of all things fabulous and your family times be joyful and harmonious. Have a
