Interview with Gordana Biernat.
On the 9th of March, Jessica Huie MBE and I hosted our annual Passion into Pounds event (inspiring women in business) in collaboration with The British Library to mark International Women's Day. What a night it was! With a full-house and a killer panel, the energy was simply electric!
A couple of weeks ago saw me 'train it' from Leeds to London to meet up with a fabulous group of blogging friends for lunch and a certain multi-award winning chart-topping singer/MC and TV judge, Alesha Dixon (standard ;) )!
The latest interview within my Wonderful Women series is Jenni Smith, a contemporary quilt artist producing unique pictures, prints and stationery, many of them for children. She also runs a successful sewing school in Ilkley in Yorskhire and works with expert tailor Ann Ladbury, author of 40 books on dressmaking.
Kelle Bryan was part of Britain’s most successful R&B group ever, Eternal, selling over 10 million records, notching up 14 top 15 UK hits and four top ten albums, as well as achieving Brit Award nominations, MOBOs and Smash Hits Awards, embarking on 4 world tours and even performing for Pope Jean Paul II.
When I first launched this blog 5 years ago, I did so to regain my voice after a traumatic birth. I only recently found the strength to blog about it HERE.
My Time at the FunFest Blogger Summit 2015 (Including my Keynote Speech from Maternity Leave to Professional Blogger)
Wow what a whirlwind the FunFest Blogger Summit was last weekend! It was one of those feel-good inspiring events that made me feel energised and excited (even more, if that was possible) about this beautiful world of blogging!
Oh my, where to start with our time at the newly opened Rainbow Factory in Farsley, Leeds-as soppy as it sounds I find myself welling up recalling our experience there as it was like no other we've had as family, before.
It's so easy in life to be constantly chasing dreams, and believe me, I'm a big believer in dreaming big, working hard, and simply going for 'it' whatever 'it' might be, but recently I've had a little shift in thinking...
International Women’s Day is a worldwide call for female equality and empowerment, the day, celebrated today, March 8, every year, is particularly pertinent to Team SCA. The all-female professional sailing team has shown great resilience and courage in so far completing more than half of the Volvo Ocean Race – arguably the most demanding sports event on the planet – with the hardest part of the race still ahead of them. Their determination and physical endurance is simply awe-inspiring. It's encouraged me personally to stop making excuses and get back to running again, right now, TODAY!
BritMums Live (for those of who don't know) is the blogging conference of the century, bringing together fabulous bloggers from all over the UK and sometimes further afield, along with inspiring, informative speakers-par example Ruby Wax, Sarah Brown, Katy Hill and others and throwing in tonnes of educational workshops from (getting published to understanding the law), cake and of course cool sponsors to network with.
