It's #brilliantblogposts again this week and I'm going live early as tomorrow I'm heading off to the hairdressers first thing to go from golden back to brunette! I'll be sharing my new look with you all soon, of course! Now onto more serious things, HUGE thanks to every one of you who links up to #brilliantblogposts when you can, I am simply staggered but not suprised by the IMMENSE talent of our blogging community and always feel stimulated, entertained, informed and hugely touched by your posts, you lot ROCK!
I've always been a bit of a girl's girl-I'm still friends with many of my oldest girlfriends from school, sixth form and university then from working in the film industry; I love how empowering good female friends can be! I'd be lost without them!
Another week, another #brilliantblogposts linky is live. It's a real joy hosting this linky, I'm thoroughly enjoying all your posts each week and reveling the range of themes linked up from food to fashion, debate pieces, lifestyle and beyond.
It's that time again, the time to shine. Simply add the posts you are most proud of, be it entertaining, powerful, informative, fun posts you've written recently or a long time ago (new, old and as many posts as you like are welcome) in any genre on any subject matter and then go discover other great blogs and posts to make you think.
Hey folks, you enjoying the summer? It's been pretty glorious here in Yorkshire! Thanks to all who linked up over at fabulous host Misplaced Brit last week. This week, I'm sharing a post showcasing a film I was commissioned to feature in for bareMinerals make up. It was a real blogging career highlight for me, I love being on camera and hope to work with this brilliant beauty brand again. Hope you enjoy it!
In case you didn't know, tomorrow (whoop) I'm going to BritMums Live, the biggest blogging conference in the UK.
You know the drill folks, add your posts, old, new and as many as you like in any genre, that you simply want to shout about, raise exposure on and touch, entertain and inform as many readers as possible.
It's that time again, to join in with #brilliantblogposts with as many posts as you like, new, archived and most importantly posts you are proud of: funny, moving, artistic, in all genres about quite frankly anything you like (within reason of course).
It's that time again-Brilliant Blog Posts so come link up all the posts you love and want to shout about. All genres welcome and all bloggers too of course.
If there wasn't enough anxiety-filled pressure when you're pregnant (big bump, little bump, too much weight, not enough) once you pop that baby out or have him airlifted as I did twice, first an emergency, second an elective (the latter a whole other set of pressures, of which I ignored wholeheartedly) you are quickly, at least with first baby anointed with parenting pressures.
It was my birthday and blogiversary on Saturday, I turned 33 and my blog a whopping 3!
We increasingly live our lives online and I simply can't imagine a day without my iPhone. In fact I left it at home the other day and had a mild panic at the thought of not being connected because we seem to be online a lot of the time.
I have a problem. Lately I seem to be surgically attached to my mobile phone. I think we all are (aren't we?). It's been going on for a while now. I see it up and down the land from playgrounds to boardrooms and I don't want to be that girl.
When Alexander was 3 weeks old, I was asked if I could pop by and give a lecture on my career as a writer/director at the Northern Film School/Leeds Metropolitan University. Despite being pretty sleep deprived and foggy headed, I agreed. You see overall I felt great-I was buzzing from the birth and physically and emotionally strong enough to go in for a couple of hours.
Have you forgotten it already? Shame on you. Too busy tweeting, face-booking and living your life online were you? ET phoned home back in the 80's- was that the last time you did too?
My opinion on oversharing!
My essential list.
