A is for…

On the 22nd May 2019 I was 14 weeks pregnant but unlike this time in my last pregnancy, I wasn’t excited. Rewind 12 weeks, and you’d have found me sobbing uncontrollably on my landing after witnessing one line turn into two. I was only about 2-3 weeks pregnant, but I saw my the life I’d […]

Freelance Heroes Day 2019: My takeaways.

Freelance Heroes Day 2019

At the end of May, I was completely honoured to be invited to speak at Freelance Heroes Day in Wolverhampton. When I started out in my freelance journey, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. To be honest, I’m not sure anyone does. You might think you know what you’re doing, but there […]

“I’ve got to save myself!”

Isn’t it funny how hypothetical situations work? It’s so easy to have an opinion when you aren’t staring the reality of it in the face. It’s easy to say “I’d never do that” or “Of course I’d do that”. But really, I don’t think anyone knows what they would do in a situation until they […]

Mental Health: Let’s keep the conversation going!

mental health

Last week, I lost a friend and colleague to suicide. It’s not my story to tell. But the wider story is one that needs to be told. Rewind a few years and mental health wasn’t something many people understood. It was either a taboo – something to be kept hush hush. Or it conjured images […]

Why I’m only setting myself one goal for 2019

It happens so frequently – I wake up in the middle of the night with another brilliant business idea. That lightbulb moment. Something I just can’t ignore. And I have to act upon it there and then. I mean, I don’t want to see my idea on TV in a year’s time and think “If […]

Six In Six – November 2018

There are only six weeks to go until Christmas, so I thought it would be the perfect time to create a new Six in Six to give myself some new goals to complete. For anyone not familiar with the Six in Six concept, it’s basically where you choose six goals to complete over a six […]

A Story about Mental Health and Entrepreneurship.

10th October 2018 was my 27th birthday. And it was also World Mental Health Day. So whilst I was sipping prosecco in my office, I was also reflecting on the last seven or so years of my life and thinking about the rest of it. Not many people know this, but I have lived with […]

Why I Quit My Job To Start My Business

About one year ago, I was having a bad day at work. You might have been too. We all have good days and bad days at work – but I’d been having bad day upon bad day since I’d returned from maternity leave and I knew it wouldn’t take many more of these bad days […]

The end of 2017

I can’t quite believe how long it has been since I’ve updated this blog. I’ve actually forgotten how to write, which is strange because I have always loved writing. I started this blog as a way to remember every week of Luna’s life when she was tiny, but as she gets bigger, developmental milestones happen […]
