I've come to believe there are two types of people in business: those who there only in it for themselves, plain and simple and those who are not.
Last Friday was mine and Jessica Huie MBE's 'Turning Passion Into Pounds' workshop with the Business & IP Centre and The British Library- and I'm proud to declare it was a resounding success. Yay!
Let me start off by writing that I don't even know if I can adequately express just how EPIC in caps last weekend in London, was for me.
I'm excited to announce that mine and Jessica Huie MBE's UK tour on how you can turn passion into pounds kicks off on April 8th 2016 in collaboration with the British Library-do not miss it!
Those who follow this blog know I'm committed to advocating a positive body image, so much so, I was bowled over when a photo I shared of myself in a bikini last year which happened to show my stretchmarks went viral, leading to me starting the #proudinmybikini campaign, encouraging others to feel good about themselves.

Last week I had the absolute honour of hosting a workshop with my close friend and business partner Jessica Huie MBE on 'Turning Passion Into Pounds'.
It's time for the latest Wonderful Women interview, which is one of my favourite features on this blog - celebrating all the incredibly inspiring and kick-ass women out there!

She also runs a successful sewing school in Ilkley in Yorskhire and works with expert tailor Ann Ladbury, author of 40 books on dressmaking.
Life is busy for all of us, right?
We're often scared to follow our professional dreams as mothers aren't we? You, I, no doubt most women reading this blog post (those not yet mothers too) because most of us have the desire to have both-a family and successful career, yet so often, as women we're made to feel by others, perpetuated by the media and society as a whole, that we can't lead, achieve and reach the top of our profession, while raising a family.
Drum roll please folks, I have some incredibly exciting news to share, and if seeing me by a petrol pump filling up isn't obvious enough, then I'll spell it out for you (literally)!
At the start of the summer, a crazy - yet incredible - thing happened to me.
