Ever find your evenings out have become a little boring? A dinner here, a cinema date there. I mean, how many Fast & Furious movies can you watch in this lifetime, really? After a while, it can be a total yawn fest. So, it’s time to shake things up a bit.
Be Real Talks are holding an event on June 4th entitled ‘Why Size Doesn’t Matter – Be The Best You’, an evening of talks from entertainers, stylists, comedians, artists and psychologists who will entertain you and get you thinking about this topic in new ways. It’s an inspiring, uplifting event designed to motivate you to make positive changes in your life, sans the Tom Cruise in Vanilla Sky cringey motivational speaker nonsense.
And because I’m all about positive shenanigans that empower and uplift, the folks at Be Real Talks have said my readers can have a discount on tickets. SUH-WEET!

I’m not really one for TV. Unless it’s Mad Men, Girls or The Wire, I find most things to be a bit ‘meh’. Documentaries however, I love me a good documentary. I’ve recently had, what basically amounts to a film festival in my house – with my own private screenings of some wonderful docs. Some I’ve watched for the first time, some are old favourites that I watch fairly regularly for inspiration and because I’m such a giver, I thought I’d share with you my top 10. Check ‘em out…

A few weeks ago, I hosted the MAD Blog Awards, an odd choice perhaps, due to me not really using my uterus and all, but the crowd seemed to like my jokes nonetheless. Above is my outfit – classic Wolford from head to toe (the tights are a particular fave of mine from my extensive tights collection).
So if you’re in need of a host, public speaker, someone to give a talk about blogging or growing your brand online, check out the services I offer and feel free to email me.

Being asked to speak at the Tate is kind of a big frikkin’ deal. I decided to ignore the fact that I’m actually petrified of speaking in public and jumped at the chance. My talk was part of a project called Visual Dialogues – I was to speak about an installation by the artist Mona Hatoum and how I related to it as a blogger.
The piece was a bunch of kitchen utensils on a table, behind an electric fence. All the utensils were connected with wires and had an electric current running through them accompanied by an intermittent buzzing sound. It all sounds very weird, I know, but when you’re there in person and see the kitchen, which traditionally represents home, family and safety, looking like a prison, it does have an effect on you.

This Saturday, March 19th, I will be giving a talk at the Tate Modern as part of a project called Visual Dialogues. I’ll be discussing an art installation there and how I respond to it as a blogger. The piece I’m talking about is by an artist called Mona Hatoum and is really powerful.
There will be other cool cats there, from athletes to spoken word poets, discussing other art works as part of this project too, so if you’re around, it’s definitely worth a gander.
I’ll let you in on a little secret here: I’m actually pretty petrified of speaking in front of people, but it ain’t every day that an internationally renowned museum like the Tate calls you up and asks you to be part of something like this. So, I may very well be crapping myself, but I’m facing my fear!
It’d be great to see some of my lovely blog readers down there, so if you do happen to make it, be sure to say hi. The event starts at 12pm and I’ll be speaking at 1.45pm.
