THE TALE OF MY HEALTH SCARE (AKA THE FRIGHT OF MY LIFE)

ITALY was, as I expected, just incredible! We had the most wonderful time in the stunning area of Lake Maggiore, in our Bookings For You villa and I cannot wait to share the photos and travel tales with you all, very soon. (Once I’ve edited the hundreds of photos I snapped, that is!) However, it was also one of the strangest holidays I’ve ever had, because whilst I was there, I

CIAO, I’M OFF TO ITALY!

SADLY, I’m not moving there. But it’s totally true. Tomorrow I’m jetting off to Italy with my family to stay in the stunning Italian Lakes, courtesy of Bookings For You. We’ll be staying at Lake Maggiore, far North of the country and just five miles from the Swiss border, and I’ll be reviewing this beautiful family villa which boosts lake views, private terraces and stunning contemporary decor. *does a dance

LADIES, ISN’T IT TIME WE EMBRACED OUR AGE?

IN my life I am surrounded by beautiful, damn right fabulous women. The kind of women that make me proud to know them. The kind of women who make juggling modern life demands seem easy. The kind of women whom I know, you would all love. One of my good friends is one of these super women. Beautiful, clever, talented, funny and kind. She has a creative and demanding job.

WHAT MAKES A GOOD MUM?

SOMETIMES being a mum feels like the easiest job in the world. Other days, it’s the hardest, most challenging, frustrating, damn right difficult job I’ve ever had. Or ever will. We’ve all been there haven’t we? No mum is immune from those god awful parenting days. The ones that force you to your knees in the kind of way only motherhood can. Not even the best mums. (Whoever they are) Not

EXCITING NEWS, A BOOK UPDATE & A THANK YOU

TODAY, before I begin… I just want to say a big ol’ thank you to everyone who commented on, shared or contacted me about Friday’s post. To be honest I’ve been a little overwhelmed by all the kind, lovely comments. However you should all know they came at a time when I absolutely needed them so thank you so much. You made a sad lady a lot happier. And a

THE TALE OF THE UNPLEASANT EMAIL (AND OUR IMPACT ON OTHERS)

I wasn’t going to write a post today. I was going to have a full day off and do very little. You see, I had some very sad news this morning. A friend of mine, the husband of one my closest friends, passed away yesterday after a battle with cancer, and so as I’m feeling more than a little emotional right now, I decided I’d step away from the laptop and

WHY DO WE CARE?…

WHAT people think about us? What they may say behind our back or in the company of others. Why do we care if people like us or not?  Some people will, others won’t. So what’s the big deal? Why do we care if people look at us in the street or when we’re out and about? Surely it’s better to be noticed than to be invisible? Isn’t it? Why do we
