I haven’t written anything blog-related in a little while and so I thought it was time (seeing as I spend most of my week creating content for both my blog and social media channels). A few people have asked how I spend my time and plan it all out. So here it is! A lot is spontaneous, especially for social media — i.e. I’ll grab…

I had planned to take the two weeks of the Easter holidays off blogging and social media management when the twins were off school, posting to instagram if and when I felt like it. However, (typically) new work ALWAYS comes in when you make these kind of solid plans. And when you’re freelance (and don’t know whether anything juicy will come in again for a…

I don’t know if it’s because it has felt like the longest winter ever, or the fact that I’ve been blogging for four years now, or the arrival of the new social media app Vero, or that Lottie has been waking again early — or all four of these things — but lately I have been struggling to think of new content.

At the time I thought this choice of degree would keep my options open for many different career paths, as well as knowing that getting into…

There’s not a week that goes past that I don’t mention (or at least hint at the fact) that I work from home, so apologies for that. But in my defence, when you work freelance/have your own home office it means a lot to you! Walking in to my iMac on my desk each morning after a crazy stressful school-run with the twins really can…

Life as a blogger has evolved quite organically for me. One day, back in April 2014, I started this little blog as a result of a few things but mostly because I was at home full-time with my baby twins and it was a fun hobby to do. I’d previously had a serious Human Resources job, where I had been trying to climb the corporate…

And the most dramatic blog post title award goes to me on this occasion, I believe? Let me explain. On Friday morning I woke up a little later than normal, Hubby was away and I had forgotten to set my alarm the night before. I thus decided (last minute decision) to pop to the gym that morning, have a quick intense workout and then come…
