WHY I LIVE FOR TODAY (AND OFTEN MAKE MISTAKES)

THROUGHOUT my life, I’ve been known to be pretty reckless at times. I’m a ‘jump in, head first’ kind of woman. I’m a leaper. I’m a ‘go for it’ shouter. When I was much younger I was attracted to danger. To excitement. And of course, to the bad boys. And as a result of this, many of my teenage years were challenging and by all accounts pretty damn awful. Because

MY TOP TEN ROMANTIC DESTINATIONS

I’M a sucker for love and romance. Aren’t we all? But one thing I’ve noticed since becoming a parent, is that often, romance comes way down the at bottom of the list of our priorities.

A THANK YOU TO MY MUM – BECAUSE #MUMSKNOWBEST

AS a teenager I thought I knew it all. You could even say, I was quite the handful. I had plenty of runs in with my Mum over the years as I battled for independence and a yearning to grow up fast.
