Two years ago today, this glorious fur ball of love, Stringer Bell, came into the world. Prior to that, I was not a dog person (oooohhhh the irony when you see how loopy I am about this pup). We had a dog when I was a kid and it was troubled to say the least. That experience made me scared of dogs pretty much my whole life. Until I met Stringer.

Digital Detox at The Four Seasons Hampshire

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015

FSH

I’m always attached to some technological device or other. It’s something I’ve become more conscious of over recent months. The more I read about the detrimental effects of it and notice those effects in my own life and behaviour, I vow to make some changes to correct it. So, when the Four Seasons Hampshire invited me to try out their Digital Detox a couple of weeks ago, it seemed like a good place to start.

Roaming Around Rome

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

IMG_3705

If you follow me on social media, you’ll have been aware from my zillion smug updates that I spent a few days in Rome last week. Expedia recently did a guide to the city and invited me to go explore the place (as if you’d ever say ‘no’ to that invite). So, off I went, armed with my Expedia Guide to Rome and having never been there, I was pretty damn excited.

Go with the Flow

Sunday, March 22nd, 2015

The latest episode of my No Bullshit Guide to Life is now live. Click on the pic above to have a listen and of course, please do subscribe, rate and review over on iTunes.

This week I’m talking about going with the flow. Do you ever allow yourself to deviate from the blueprint you’ve made for your life or do you stick to it resolutely? I’m making the argument in favour of going with the ebb and flow of life, using those curveballs the universe throws us and picking up on those signs that may be pointing us in a new direction.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

International Women’s Day

Sunday, March 8th, 2015

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY Y’ALL!

I like to celebrate the awesomeness that is womanhood every day. One of the ways I choose to do that is through movement. I do it through loud, brazen, happy, skippy, unapologetic movement, because I can. I strip down to my sports bra and rock a spin bike like a champ because I have the freedom to OWN that moment. I Instagram my runs because I can keep going, because a mere 48 years ago, women were literally being pushed off marathon courses.

There’s No Such Thing As Ready

Thursday, March 5th, 2015

If you’re majorly into planning and plotting and getting all your ducks in a row, that title probably freaked you out a bit, huh? I mean, we’re kinda reared on the very notion of readiness. Wait a bit, don’t fire off to quickly, bide your time. Well I say bollocks to that! Who’s making these rules?! If you wanna do something, go ahead and do it. There’s plenty to be said for learning as you go and flying by the seat of your pants. So hold onto your hat, kiss your comfort zone goodbye and give ‘being ready’ the middle finger.

Give it Up For Down Time

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

The busy-ness epidemic has reached epically peak levels. We’re always doing something. If we’re not working, we’ve got family commitments, if we’re not with family, we’re with friends, if we’re not with friends, we’re tackling our always-way-too-long to-do lists and while we’re doing that we’re Instagramming and Tweeting the bejesus out of all to make sure people know our lives have substance. But aren’t you tired? Don’t you wish you had a second to just breathe and be? I know I do. So I’ve decided to schedule down time into my week and ensure I devote that time to doing as little as I want. HELL YEAH!

Feel the Force Field

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I’m entering a new chapter in my life career wise. I’m trying to step it up at every level, so I’m not just a boss, I’m a BAWSE. It involves me pushing myself, exploring new avenues, ensuring I’m always giving my very best (and a multitude of other little things that are probably too boring for me to write about here). But one of the main things is setting limits for myself, or expectations, if you will – a set of rules for the kind of behaviour I will allow in my life. I’m calling it my ‘Don’t Fuck With Me Force Field’ and lemme tell ya, the force is strong in this one.
