So this week is an important one as I'm linking up two posts which mean a lot to me. First up I am touched that Emily Beckoff of International Elf Service asked me if she could share a post on her brush with breast cancer to help encourage others to check their breasts. Please don't miss her piece HERE. The other post is an exciting announcement that I am a Sport Relief ambassador. I was truly honoured when they asked me and together with my family, we will be walking for 3 miles at the Sheffield Games.

Let’s Talk About Race, Racism & Feeling Like The ‘Other’

I've pondered a while whether I should write this post, air my views and explore a subject that frankly, needs more airing and exploring. A grey area I've shied away from writing. For fear of being judged, of being considered 'too white' to have experienced racism, for fear of not being taken seriously.

My Selfish Mother ‘Maman’ Tee & Raising Money For Charity

As women, born, raised and living in the Western world we are so incredibly fortunate. A fact many of us take for granted - I know I do. It's incredibly easy to get caught up in our so called 'First World Problems'. Traffic jams, broken boilers and impending deadlines all pale into insignificance compared to many womens' lives in the developing world, for whom war, poverty and disease is a daily reality. If you are keen to support women in these situations, one of the ways you can do something to make a difference is by rocking one the super cool tops from the Blogzine Selfish Mother.

Wonderful Women With Patience Brewster, Artist & Entrepreneur

If there is one thing Patience Brewster is, it is an honest mum. Motherhood always came first, now and back in the late 70’s early 80’s, what she refers to as the dark ages, at a time when it was not so easy to work at home. No daycare at first, no computers. But it provided the best of both worlds as she illustrated children’s books with babies on her desk, and as her children got older, painted for galleries and for stationery companies and then designs for a huge international gift company.
