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 with. So I’ve decided to […]

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 is slow! Last weekend I […]

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 that even from pocket money, […]

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 this month.

Fancy listening to our dulcet tones?  You can listen again here. […]

Anger – what the hell is it all about?

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 chat lots, and talked him […]

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 I realised it’s all about […]

Meditation for stressed out beginners with little time who can’t Ohm!

  All cudos to those who can ’empty their minds’ or sit in a corner and ‘ohm’ for 30 minutes a day, but I just can’t do it. I’ve tried ‘guided meditations’ too, but all that jingly jangly music irritates me, and I tend to already be swimming in the sea by the time they have stepped their first step […]
