Flourishing Together

It’s that very funny time between Christmas and New Year. The ‘January’ sales have started (even though January hasn’t) and, for many, this is a time to spend with loved ones, whether they are near or far. And so, as a little follow-up from the blog I wrote a couple of [...]

Working on Ilana

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!! Can you tell I really like Christmas? Well, I actually just really like December. London always looks so pretty (the Oxford Street window displays are at their finest), there’s that frosty bite in the air, there are decorations everywhere and people just become [...]

Feeling Better with ‘Bake Off’

I’ve been writing a lot of Happynesshub blogs recently. This week, Tuesday hit, and with all of Sally’s goings on, I needed to think of a subject last-minute I’d like to write about. Then, Tuesday afternoon turned to Tuesday evening and I had my regular Great British Bake Off gathering with [...]

Moments with Mum

Disclaimer: To my mum who will be reading this, I promise that this blog includes genuine sentiment and is not a brand new bribing tactic as I’m sure you’re currently suspecting. Throughout my life I’ve often heard the saying ‘hindsight’s a beautiful thing’ and there’s no denying that it certainly is. [...]

Help is at Hand

As I lay in the recovery room, oxygen, cannulas, medical staff a blur – after the initial surge of pain, lovely dose of morphine and then a rather snazzy inflatable hot blanket to stop the shivering, my initial reaction to all of this was – please can I see my mum, [...]

For the Love of Food

I love food, and I love people… there is nothing better for me than sharing a meal with some friends, family and loved ones (often helped by a log fire and an exceptionally good cheese board!). So I was interested to read this week in one of my favourite publications, Positive [...]

Friendships at 40

A few weeks ago I reached the big 4-0. I know, I know, I don’t look a day over 25 (or so I like to tell myself). So, in preparation for the big day I went through the usual dilemma of what I should do. Having a birthday in February does [...]

The Importance of Being Alone

A few weeks ago, I read an article in Lena Denham and Jenni Konner’s online magazine Lenny. The article was titled ‘Women Are Supposed to Give Until They Die’ (read here) and discussed how important alone time is for women as well as men. This got me thinking… I have gone [...]

Have Yourself a ‘?’ Little Christmas

It’s nearly Christmas! And whatever faith you may be, living in London (as I do) you can’t help but notice the Christmas cheer… yet acknowledge the madness, hustle, bustle and let’s face it rising stress levels of many you encounter. With the Big Day just around the corner, I’m constantly aware [...]

Christmas Kindness

I want to talk about kindness. Christmas is almost upon us, a time of love, giving and festive cheer. And it feels right, to talk about kindness, to spread it, share it and celebrate it. Kindness has been all around me these few past weeks. When my mum had her accident [...]
