December Detox 2022

How does 31 days away from social media sound? Photo by Anastasia Jobson I've been taking regular social media breaks since December 2016. A whole month of not losing time on Instragram, not getting lost in Facebook comments, not getting sucked in by Twitter threads. It's delightful. It wasn't an official thing at first, I didn't announce it as December Detox or give it any other name. Taking a break from social media was a gift I gave to myself and I shared a little bit about it on my return. Some people were curious about what I did…


Women Who Write Books

I've always loved reading books and dreamed of being an author. After I published my first few books, I realised how much I wanted to connect with other writers. At that time, I was the only person I knew who was doing what I was doing, and I longed to have people to talk about writing with. I decided to create an event where authors and writers could come together. My event was called So, You Want to Write A Book? and while I could have had a starring role in it, really I just hosted it and enjoyed the vibes.…


So, you want to publish a workbook?

If you had a great idea for a workbook and the information to make it happen, would you go ahead and publish one? As a Creative Mentor, I get to witness the development of the most beautiful projects and ventures. There's something magical about seeing someone's eyes sparkle when they talk about an idea, share their progress, and finally reach their goal. Even more so when I know they have planned and worked hard for it. Recently I published a workbook and advised some of my mentoring clients to think about doing the same. They offer services to the…

Running away from comfort or towards freedom?

A failed quest for freedom? When I was little, I wanted to run away from home. The first time I did this, I'd been told off by my mum. I put my dressing gown and a teddy into my lunchbox, walked up to the top of the road, and sat on a garden wall. My little sister came and told me that my mum wanted me, so I went home. I was so upset when she wouldn't let me back out. (As a mum now I can see why she didn't!) Photo by RODNAE Productions on I thought…

What I Did: Changed Career

Over a decade ago, I was a Manager in a betting shop. I was 20 and had worked my way up in an industry that wasn't particularly kind to women (or even young women). I enjoyed the customer service aspect but I longed to work in a women's organisation. I'd grown up in domestic violence and had stayed in a refuge, and I really just wanted to be like the children's worker who used to come in twice a week. I scoured the paper for job opportunities but these types of roles were hard to come by. Then one day…


No Dick, Drama or Distractions in 2020

I've thought about it and wrote about it, and I'm certain that the only way to be successful in 2020 is to avoid dick, drama and distractions. Photo by Felicia Buitenwerf on Unsplash Before I wished a Happy New Year to my loved ones, I knew the energy of this new decade would be different. The final months leading up to 2020 had rounded up some harsh lessons. It put a spotlight on the toxic cycles that I couldn't continue with. I accomplished my goals for 2019 but I still experienced unexpected shifts and changes in my life. The disappointment that followed…


FREEBIES: Screensavers

Are you a fan of positive quotes and mantras? Do you love a freebie? I've created a handful of screensavers for myself, as I am constantly picking up my phone. But sharing is caring, right? It's only right I share them with the wider sisterhood, in case you need a reminder of your greatness too. Click each image to download. Love these screensavers? Want to see another kind of freebie? Let's talk about it in the comments below! With love,


Is blogging for you?

I'm in conversations with people who are ready to start a blog, and I'm excited for them. But it got me thinking. What about the people who are still unsure about taking the next step? What about those who have all the ideas but lack the confidence to try? It's easy for me to tell you to just go for it, I'm here with a blog. It's easy for me to tell you to write what feels right, I'm an experienced writer. But I will tell you that blogging has its benefits, which include: a boost in confidence, a…
