Career Mistakes I’ve Made

|Reading time: 3 minutes|
My career in magazines/websites was my passion and one that I sorely miss. Perhaps it was the wonderful team I left behind and the managers at GQ? I spent 8 years working in publishing with only one brief stint working in the private jet lounge industry. But throughout my career I’ve made some mistakes. Ones that I want to share so you don’t do the same.

Does ‘Perfect’ Really Exist?

|Reading time: 3 minutes|
Hands up if you’ve ever claimed to be ‘perfect’? I have, many times. More often than not it’s when I’m bickering with my husband to enforce the point he’s wrong and I’m right and at the time, I convince myself to the point of almost believing.

Last year I chose to write about some New Year Fashion Resolutions which gave me a positive look at what I’m already passionate about.

Dating Rules To Think About

Writing this post whilst almost 8 months pregnant feels a bit bizarre. Truth be told I haven’t dated anyone except my husband in four and a half years. A long time! So long in fact that I was one of the last singletons right before the launch of ‘Tinder’, ‘Happn’ and the many other weird and wonderful dating apps around right now. But take algorithm matches, pre-judged assumptions (of photographs) and pre-date online stalking out of the equation and what your left with is a pretty universal date situation. A man and woman (or two women, or two men) coming together over a glass of wine (or vegan juice) with the mutual desire to want to get to know one another. But it doesn’t come without its complications.
