The Square Mile Awards

Just over a week ago, (yes it's taken me that long to write this)- I won an award! *Jumps in the air Rocky style at the memory. It was for the Square Mile 30 Under 30 London Talent Awards to be exact and I won my category: Media, Entertainment and the Arts.

Things My Mother-In Law Taught Me

I recently wrote the post Things My Mother Taught Me which listed my top 10 lessons learnt from my Mama and now I'd like to pay homage to my super Mother in Law.

Things My Mother Taught Me

I wanted to write 10 things my Mother has taught me. She's taught me a lot more than 10 but here are my favourites:
on set

And Action…

I've been meaning to blog for ages now but well, life has gotten in the way. I'm sorry guys. I will try harder next time I promise! It's just I got back from being on set last month for the first time since maternity leave ended, and since we wrapped it's been busy, busy, busy with tv meetings and of course lots of fun times with my 14 month old, settling back into life in my hometown of Leeds after 11 years away and all that comes between. It's been an incredible ride.

If I Was…

I often wonder (mostly at night in between the 'I should be asleep and why am I not asleep' twilight hours of disrupted sleep or dreaming of nights out I never have anymore (see above)- the many variables of  'If I was...?' It's kind of a game I play. I'd...

Yep, You Deserve an Award

In light of the awards' season: the Baftas and Oscars out there for the film industry, I started to ponder-where are the awards for all the amazing mothers out there-because you totally and utterly deserve it.

People Power So Your Baby Gets the Best Care

Right folks I've wanted to write this for a while and I feel very strongly about it. My little one has unfortunately been at the receiving end of very ill advice (excuse the pun) from several medical professionals since we've moved to Leeds. This happens everywhere I know so I'm not condemning Leeds but I am hoping this post might make a difference to parents everywhere in 'going with their gut' and not being patronised by meds.

Mummy’s Got to Go to Work Now!

I'm writing this from my Aunt's house in Manchester as I embark on the next few days without my little boy as I attend film and commercial meetings before returning next week to shoot the ads. You see 'Mummy's got to go to work now'. Yes it will help us financially but more so, I want to go and work. I need to. I love my job, it's the most challenging, unbelievably fun career in the world. I'm sure of it.

I Love Leeds

I recently wrote a love letter to London and thought it was only fair to share the love and write a post about Leeds, my hometown and now, new town.

Little Man Turns 1

Well what a year it's been.... One emergency C section ( nothing 'posh' about not being able to get out of bed or sneeze or feel normal for that matter, for months on end), 2 house moves to 2 different cities, 1 incredibly active, funny, lovable baby, lots of joy (everyone), lots of tears of frustration (him and me) and most importantly lots and lots of laughs (the whole Big Fat Greek Family).

Yes They’re Greek!

I'm a British Greek Cypriot and my friends and I (especially the Greek ones, obvs) enjoy finding out who in the wonderful world of Film, TV and Music are also Greek. Yep we're a little bit sad like that.

Christmas Done

Well Christmas was a super day-my little boy's first one-he will be 1 in 2 weeks so we tried to stagger the presents somewhat. Failed.
