    Why I’m struggling

    The subject of this blog post was supposed to be all about how to manage a successful work-life balance, but since I broke down in the middle of town on Friday night after a couple of cocktails crying about how exhausted I am, I hardly think I am well equipped to talk about that. So, we are going on a different tack and I’m going to tell you what I’m struggling with, with running my own business and how I’m planning to get my life back! Starting your own business is hard work. I don’t know why I’m surprised by that, I should know already! I’ve previously run 2 successful…

    Why I love January

    I wouldn’t go as far as saying that January is my favorite month, I mean…come on. But it’s pretty high up there as much as June, July, September is (best month, next best month until the kids break up and my anniversary month!) It’s a month of new. New body. New habits. New notebooks. New resolutions and new socks (thanks Mum). I love the freshness, the positivity that everyone has in the first 3 days of the year. Everyone is a bit skint so there are some fantastic offers on and you give your liver a chance to recoup from that massive dent you put in that bottle of gin. …

    What I consider my Classic beauty products

    Adjective: classic Judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind. I’m a fan of classics, whether it be books, cars, clothes, films.  I think there is room for classic products in everyone’s life and today I’m sharing my favourite beauty products. You know the type, the Cult ones. The products your Nan had in her bathroom cupboard and the ones that never seem to go out of fashion no matter how many new dupes or similar versions become available in this current climate of rapid retail. They’ve stood the test of time. Let’s start at the very beginning and that’s with skincare.…

    Fancy Doing Something Amazingly Different? Keep Reading…

    On Saturday I was invited* to head on down to take part in a Silent Adventure Tour in Liverpool. To be honest, I’d never heard of them before so I went on their website to see what it was all about and I was left feeling a bit bewildered and intrigued.  It certainly sounded up my street. As an ex-professional dancer, there is nothing more I love than having a boogie and the idea of a flash mob in the middle of the city centre, well, I was RSVPing as quick as I could! The meeting place was the Club House in Liverpool One. We were taking part in the…

    Nipple Tassles At The Ready: Popping My Burlesque Cherry

    On Friday night I was invited down to Phase One in Seel Street to *review the Spare Rib Superstar 2019. The closest I’ve ever come close to Burlesque is watching that questionable film featuring Christina and Cher. So, with trepidation and my general questioning nosiness, I told my husband to cancel his evening’s plans as he had to come with me and watch some gorgeous girls (and boys) take their clothes off. Tough life being married to me eh!? The night featured 12 fantastic, up and coming Burlesque artists that were competing for the title of Spare Rib Superstar. With an audience vote and a judges vote, 2 acts were…

    10 Ways To Win At Married Life(!)

    In my life, I’ve made 2 great choices. One was choosing to become a professional dancer and the other one was saying Yes when Adam proposed to me. I love married life but it is one of the hardest things I have EVER committed to in my life. I’m not even being sarcastic when I say that, it’s hard work BUT it’s the best. I actually love married life maybe cos I love a challenge 🤷 Anyways, I never thought I would get married, honestly, I never thought I would be able to find someone who would put up with me. I’m fully aware of my bad points. I’m headstrong, stubborn, a…

    My go to podcasts

    Aren’t podcasts brilliant? Sometimes I will find my finger hovering over the podcast button on Spotify a little bit too often. I love music, I constantly have my phone blaring out music like a personal ghetto-blaster but there are some times that call for a podcast. Mine is when I’m driving or when I’m cooking and cleaning. They enable me to switch off my mind and be able to fully immerse myself into something different than my Spotify daily mix. If you’re not a podcast fan or just haven’t found the right one for you read on because I’m sharing my favourites you. Jules and Sarah the podcast is actual…

    Be kind and stop the shaming.

    You’ll never hear a bunch of women stand around and say positive things about their body. It’s always derogatory comments about the size of our thighs/stomach/bums. Why do we do this? Is it a natural way of protecting yourself in case someone else rudely points out your “flaws’. Maybe. Maybe it’s because women generally compare themselves to other women, “She has amazing legs”, “Wish I had her bum”. Will we ever stop slating ourselves and focusing on bits we don’t like. Why don’t we stand around and celebrate us as heathly, strong, intelligent women. This blog post has taken me a while to write. It’s been sat in my draft…
