'Tis the season to be jolly- and to hit the January sales soon enough of course, too fashionistas!
A few weeks ago saw me head down to London for a photo shoot with celebrity photographer Joseph Sinclair. I have some exciting collabs and speaking engagements scheduled over the coming months so was in need of some new shots for PR materials and both of my blogs, so this was the perfect time to shoot.

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.
Sleep-deprivation isn't just for parents of newborns, I'm still waiting for my 5 year old, Oliver to sleep through the night, every night. Really. Both he and Alexander are light sleepers like their Mama and both will usually wake up at least once a night if not more. Good times. ...And it's not just us who are suffering, the majority of parents I've asked recently, seem to be too. It appears we are all relentlessly searching for the holy grail of consistent sleep-argh remember the full 8 hours pre-kids. It's but a distant memory for myself and so many.
So yesterday saw me head to Manchester for a special meeting with renowned modelling agency Nemesis.

Those who follow this blog know that I love a good pamper session and that's exactly what I had last week thanks to Allertons in Leeds!
