Want smooth legs for summer? Time to start synchronising those hair-growth cycles…

We are a mere four hair growth cycles away from the first day of summer, so now’s the time to start preparing for long-lasting, silky smooth pins!

Returning to work after my last baby…

I hesitated over this post for a while; it’s a difficult subject to talk about right now (it’s all a bit raw and emotional) but also it’s such a different experience for everyone who does it, so it’s not a topic that can be generalised. When returning to work after a baby (or not, as…… Continue reading Returning to work after my last baby…

Inspiration for the new year

Today feels more like new year’s day than new year’s day did, because it’s officially the first day of normal life again, after the festive break.  So many people return to work/school etc. today and most of the Christmas lights and decorations are all gone by now. I always mourn the end of the festive…… Continue reading Inspiration for the new year

Positivity wins, every time… Hands down.

God knows I love a ‘to do’ list and, for me, there are two types: the ‘I’d like to do’ list and the ‘I suppose I have to do’ list. They both seem to be haunting my days at the moment! My head gets a little (a lot) scrambled with all the things I need…… Continue reading Positivity wins, every time… Hands down.
