Helping Mums Embrace Gentle Living & Easy Journaling

Self Love Tips For Mums – Part 1

Us Mums are prone to comparisons, lack of confidence and not taking care of ourselves. Not all of us, and depending on who we are, it is at different levels in difference parts of our lives – but I reckon the majority of us are not showing ourselves as much self-love as we could do […]

Accept who you are and the pace of change that suits you!

Last week I spoke to so many Mums who were being really harsh on themselves, that I wanted to chat to you about being more accepting of who you are – it’s certainly something I’ve had to do over the past year. Some big news for me – and why it’s OK if your progress […]

How to invest in yourself!

How to invest in yourself!

So back at Radio Verulam today with the Gorgeous Danny Smith and I was inspired to chat about ‘investments’ by Curly Headed Boy. It’s spring time, maybe you need a fresh look at your life and a bit of an overhaul? The question is how to invest in yourself? Money Saving. We are quite strict […]

How, why and what on earth is ‘Loving yourself’?

Is it possible to have romance and kids?

I was on the radio tonight with the ‘Gorgeous Danny Smith’ on his Drivetime show on Radio Verulam (you can listen again for a week here – monday 5.30-6pm), talking about ‘Self Love’.  It’s a bit cliched maybe, but also really important, and something I’ve been thinking about and wishing a few of my friends would practice more […]

Why Pampering Is The Best Present You Can Give

Pampering – it’s one of the best presents you can give YOURSELF or your loved ones! It might sound a bit ridiculous for the owner of a Hair & Beauty Salon and Spa to say this: But I hadn’t understand HOW important it is until recently. Now Danny Smith at Radio Verulam is a big […]

Fancy listening to our dulcet tones? […]

Anger – what the hell is it all about?

Frustration and anger

I was chatting with Curly headed boy the other day, as he’d been giving us some serious attitude for a few weeks.  He was clearly angry with me, but I couldn’t work out what on earth was the matter. So I picked one of those evenings – you know the ones when they want to […]

Ten Tips On How To Take Care Of Yourself!

I’ve been wondering what to talk about with the gorgeous Danny Smith on his drive time show to Radio Verulam for a couple of days. Should it be my improvement with Fibromyalgia, should it be that the minute the sun comes out we panic about bikini’s or should it be more relationship stuff? But then […]

My house’s journey in 2013 – from salon to normality

Loads of people do reviews of their life for the previous year, I’m going to do a review of my house’s life last year. For the first quarter of the year I saw lots of my house because I was still getting to grips with my Fibromyalgia – I basically needed a jolly good rest.  Gradually […]

Kirstie Allsopp Britmumslive

Yay, the summer holidays are over, so I was back over with the gorgeous Danny Smith on Radio Verulam today.  Listen again here. I thought I’d share what I’ve been doing all summer – embracing the Kirstie Allsopp revolution! I love the whole crafting/upcycling revolution that has been birthed by the recession.  I believe that creativity […]
