Over to You…

Over to You…

I’ve been blogging for far longer than I’d like to admit, and if you’ve been reading since then –  well! – you deserve a medal. But whilst I’ve surprisingly always got something to say, what has made the biggest impact on my blogging is your comments and stories. There have been times when I’ve sat talking with my friends, family…

Whatever Happened to the Art of Conversation?…

Whatever Happened to the Art of Conversation?…

When I was recently scrolling through my timeline in a moment of procrastination, I stumbled upon an update from my nephew, and there in the comments were streams of emoji’s. I sat there for a good few minutes attempting to decipher this new language, (and yes, I hasten to admit I did also attempt a google search trying to work…

Embrace the Journey…

Embrace the Journey…

I don’t know where on earth I conjured up the aspiration, but for a long time I held the strong belief that by the age of 30, I wanted to be married with children. I laugh at this now, because although I’m creeping ever closer to the big 3 0, I see this as a rather naïve goal that actually…

Don’t Be Divided

Don’t Be Divided

It doesn’t matter if you voted remain or leave, what has become apparent to me is that we are on the brink of change, and rather than join together to see what we can do as a nation, we have become strongly divided -  to the point where I have seen disgraceful bullying from both sides condemning those for using…

War Paint

War Paint

I can vividly remember my very first bottle of nail polish. It was a barbie pink glitter that delighted me so much in it's sparklyness that I insisted on attempting to paint my bunk bed with it. (Suffice to say it didn't go very far.) After that first whiff of polish and the pleasure of seeing my nails transform with…

My Choices….Not Yours

My Choices….Not Yours

At the beginning of this year I made a dramatic life choice. One that not only turned my own world upside down, but others too. It wasn’t an easy choice, and it was by no means lacking in thought for anyone else involved. Yet when I made the decision and told friends and family, the reaction was as mixed as…

A Lesson in Dressing from Bo Gilbert

A Lesson in Dressing from Bo Gilbert

When Harvey Nichols announced their advert in the 100th Birthday Edition of Vogue would feature a 100 year-old model, I had to find out more about the woman sat so elegantly in pink who is set to become the first centenarian model in British Vogue. As the typical age of a fashion model is between 16-25, Harvey Nichols went against…

Everyday is a School Day

Everyday is a School Day

When was the last time you invested time and money into yourself? And by investing in yourself I don't mean that slice of cake or those Jimmy Choo's that were speaking to you from the shop. I'm talking about putting in the effort to expand your mind or learn about the world around you. We all get caught up wanting…

The Grass Isn’t Always Greener

The Grass Isn’t Always Greener

Last year I made a big decision to switch gyms. Yes, I know that's nothing massively life changing, but for someone who's been 'gymming it' at the same sweat box for over 10 years it was a pretty big decision. You see my gym had become like a second home, I not only knew the instructors personally but most other…

So Much for Being Picture Perfect…

So Much for Being Picture Perfect…

In the online obsessed world we live in, we've all become our own 'life editors', carefully selecting the picture perfect moments that we want everyone to see, and editing them down to make them look like stolen pictures from a 'This is Your Life Album'. Giving off that cookie cutter perception that our live's are an idealistic fairytale, and god…
