THIS week I’m delighted to be co-hosting the All About You link up, with my gorgeous buddy Zaz and fellow fabulous blogger Sarah. Before we all get started and I get reading all your incredible posts, I wanted to share with you this brilliant quote I came across yesterday about patience which really struck a chord with me.

Top Ten PR Tips

  WHEN I’m not blogging, you can find me sat at a desk typing away, getting my creative head on for clients. I work as both a journalist and PR and I absolutely love what I do. Yes, there are other strings to my professional bow but these are the two services which are my most popular. Today I want to talk about PR and help get you into a

Finally, I can now use my ‘proper’ camera (kind of)

I LOVE photography and I adore taking snazzy images so you can imagine my delight when my husband gave me a very swanky (and expensive) camera for Christmas a few years ago. I’ve used it loads since then. It’s travelled to Florence and Rome, captured Elsie as a newborn, snapped our loved up friends on their wedding days and more besides. But here’s the thing.

A letter to phone calls: Why I hate speaking on the phone

  Dear phone calls, I’ve struggled with you over the years. And I’ve done my best to fall in love with you, like you even. But it’s time to admit that well, in all honesty, I just don’t like you very much. In fact – please don’t be hurt by this – but I actually like you very little. I don’t know why. To be fair, it’s not like I

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

FRIDAY FIVE: Five good reasons you should definitely give freelancing a whirl

THIS morning I realised that I have now been freelancing for four whole years. Four whole years of blood, sweat and freelancing tears! I can hardly believe it! I jest of course about the tears. In all honesty, it’s been rather incredible. I have spoken much about my love of freelancing before (see here and here) and today I can’t help but talk about it again, with it being my

FRIDAY FIVE: What I learned from BritMums Live

I CAN’T help but find it ironic, that after attending my first blogging conference last weekend, I have been utterly rubbish at blogging this week. (This world works in funny ol’ ways doesn’t it?!) Anyhow, for those of you who may have missed all the excitement, last weekend saw me attend BritMums Live for the first time, kindly sponsored by the wonderful Yellow Mellon. (If you haven’t already, do check
