A torte to try.
What to do if you're alone this Christmas.
Look, it's straight-up natural to want to be liked. We all do.
There's a lot of, 'Turn off the internet, it's bad for you' warnings circulating and yes, whilst you need time out from your laptop, particularly pre-bedtime for the best chance of a restful night's sleep, the world wide web for the most part, is a force for good, if you ask me.
SEO and PR can often overwhelm even the most seasoned of bloggers. Why do some blog rank higher than others in Google, and how can it be done for your own blog? Today we welcome back Nic Tuxford, senior SEO specialist at digital marketing agency Exposure Ninja, to share the secrets to great SEO for bloggers
Since leaving London, almost 6 years ago, after eleven years in the capital, I've often questioned whether we were, my husband and I, 'tired of life' as John Samuel's famous saying goes, when we departed.
Let me kick off by writing, I'm that girl who literally wants to be friends with everyone.
Welcome back people and hey! to all you new bloggers!
I'm honoured to be a finalist at the BritMums in Brilliance Awards in the Social Media category so I thought it was high-time I shared my own social media tips for bloggers and business owners. Here's my Top 10.
Interior design is one of my greatest passions in life.
Welcome back brilliant bloggers and hola(!) to those new to this linky (Where've you been people) ;)
Welcome to my weekly linky #Brilliantblogposts, one of the most kick-ass, inspiring, and Kanye-approved linkies in town.
I love my house, I really do but thanks to Pinterest I want to make some changes, some subtle, others a bit more dramatic to our house.
With the colder weather on the horizon and few solid months of being in the country, my mind has turned to home improvements.
What can I say? I'm pretty impressionable, particularly when it comes to anything health-wise. I want to feel and OK, look, my best and I've never felt this more since having kids because like all parents, we simply want to be strong and well for our kids, as much as ourselves.
You know those times when you literally have to pinch yourself at how exciting and rewarding your job is, (and I'm so grateful too), well looking back on my day at George Northwood's salon, was really one of those days.
Recently, I've noticed a fair few people remark on how confident I am, or at least appear to be (it was mentioned several times at Blog Camp where I spoke recently, with many asking me how they could become more confident when it comes to going on camera or making their blog their business and I receive a lot of emails on the subject too.
Rules, rules, rules. I get it, many, many rules when it comes to creativity, be it screenwriting to blogging and beyond, are incredibly useful for insight, guidance and inspiration but rules, my friends were made to be broken.
Bloggers/business owners/brands depend on social media to grow, expand and thrive. Social media is an easy, instant way to connect with friends and potential readers/consumers.
PinterestLondon is always a whirlwind for me, and last Wednesday was no exception. Taking my Mum along for a rare night away and quite the party (more of that soon), I had some exciting meetings by day (as always, I'll reveal more when I can)- as we made our way through chic coffee shops in Farringdon to the place I call home in the city, Charlotte Street Hotel, a bustling yet relaxing hub where meetings can turn to dinner easily, and being so close to Soho and the production company I have a TV series in development with, makes it the ideal place for my blogging and TV career to meet.
Hey guys, this week's #brilliantblogposts has come around sooner than usual as I'm in London on Wednesday and Thursday so wanted to go live before I go. I've got some exciting meetings while I'm there before treating my Mum to a pre-London Fashion Week party on Wednesday evening I've been invited to by Pinterest. I now just need to decide on what to wear!
My husband Peter is pretty much a genius behind the camera, this much you probably know (well those of you who follow my blog regularly at least). I'm not too shabby myself, but work life sure is easier with a personal paparazzo to snap away for this here blog. No selfie-sticks needed here!
Welcome back to #brilliantblogposts people (these weeks are flying aren't they?!). This week is rather exciting for me as I'm linking up a new series I launched just yesterday 'Who's the Daddy' that will be monthly feature, or possibly more frequent due to the HUGE interest, showcasing and celebrating the work of a different Daddy blogger each week. Here, contributors will share their perspective on parenting and anything else they fancy. John of Dad Blog UK writes about the pressure he feels at the school gates to look good. Read it HERE.
