My Good List #1

My Good List #1

First up, I have a confession: this is not my idea. I'm 100% borrowing (hopefully not stealing) this idea from Tsh Oxenrider, who is perhaps the one creator who has had the biggest impact on my life over the last three years at least. She first wrote about 'The Good...

Word of the Year 2021: Agape Love… again

Word of the Year 2021: Agape Love… again

Last year, I wrote a post on how I wanted to pick 'romantic' as my Word of the Year (WotY) but then realised that it didn't match up with the person I wanted to be. So instead I chose 'agape', greek for unconditional love. 2020 was going to be the year I paid love...

Holiday Busyness needs a Year-Round Solution

6 Questions with… is an opportunity for women and girls everywhere to share something about their passions and lives. (It’s also a fantastic excuse for me to be really nosey and learn more about the incredible women I admire.)

This week I’m putting Sophie Howell in the hot seat. This woman is one of the funniest, craziest and most genuine people I know. She’s also pretty handy with a sewing machine too, which she’ll tell you more about later. To be honest, she’s much better at introducing herself so I’ll leave you in Sophie’s capable hands…
