Welcome back to Creative Lives, a feature which shares the experiences of inspiring men and women leading exactly that: creative lives. This series is dedicated to those working in the media and the arts, creating, communicating, touching and transforming. In this interview, I'm speaking to the uber-talented celebrity hairstylist Jason Collier, someone whom I also have the pleasure of calling a great friend too.

Appearing in A Hair Feature for the Daily Mail’s Femail

I'm often asked if my hair is fake or not, so when the Daily Mail got in touch asking if I'd like to appear in a feature on real hair vs hair extensions it seemed like a fitting opportunity! Eagle-eyed followers will spot me in print and on the homepage of Femail today!

One-Pan Curly Kale With Salmon And Chilli

Adored by the likes of Beyonce and Victoria Beckham, Kale is a foodie fave du jour. Rumour has it even McDonalds is even 'lovin' it' and plans to add kale to its menu in the not too distant future (McKale perhaps..?).

We're now back from a dream holiday in Jamaica reviewing Beaches Resorts Ocho Rios, and while there, my little heros learnt how to swim in utterly stylish gifted swimwear by celebrity favourite Sunuva.

Tuesday’s Beauty Spot-Weleda Skin Food

Victoria Beckham, Alexa Chung, Adele and Rihanna can't all be wrong. Everyone (including little old me) appears to be hooked on Weleda's Skin Food. A thick, intensively moistursing cream, it's a real rescue remedy for tired and dry skin.
One Direction-Teen Vogue

Another Direction

So the other day at Oliver's 3rd birthday party, the entertainers played One Direction (don't ask me the song please, it's an impossible request. If it's not JayZ or Nicki Minaj, I'm struggling). In fact, at the time, as the children danced away, one of the Mums remarked that her daughter adores Harry and I actually asked her who at the party was called Harry. I know.

Friday Fun…Celebrity Mothers of Sons

In keeping with my light hearted Friday fun posts, I thought I'd bring you Celebrity Mothers of Sons-just because, well I'll soon be a mama of two boys myself and I want to know which celebs have boys too, get some style tips and indulge in a futile but fun post. Enjoy!
Spice Girls

The Spice Girls Spicing Up Our Lives Again!

Was it just me who shed a little tear when the Spice Girls got on stage last night? Admittedly I fell I asleep at 9pm so watched it this morning but still-I was 16-1-6 when I first heard 'Wannabee' on the radio-I remember it distinctly-chaperone Papa G was driving me back from Sixth Form College and I couldn't believe how cool the track was, it was truly empowering-these girls were singing directly to the opposite sex of what it would take to be their lover-it was like discovering boys for the first time (but wait that happened before 16, I was dating twins in primary school).

Pregnancy Pressures…

My first pregnancy was pretty tough with daily vomiting continuing until I was 28 weeks. Not fun. At. All. It also meant living on walkers, dry biscuits and dairylea (whatever I could stomach) daily and sadly no exercise (even a ride in the car induced puking).

No Boys Allowed?

I remembered something I read on facebook a few months back, today and it really grated on me. A woman I barely knew but met through other mothers, commented after her 20 week scan that she was, "relieved she was having another girl". It startled me a little.
