It’s been a while, but I am super-excited to be able to bring you the second in this series of interviews. This time, the spotlight is being shone on a lady who I first encountered on The ‘Gram, cos her feed is dope (and her son is super cute *heart eyes*), then witnessed work her… Continue reading Hey! It’s My Life in a Day featuring Jendella
By now, you must be fully aware of my womance (for those of you unfamiliar with this terminology, it’s a bromance but for girls) with the Motherhood Reconstructed ladies. Well, what better way to solidify our relationship than to create a hashtag planting project together? And, cos we’re not cliquey bitches, we want you to… Continue reading Hey…How Does Your Garden Grow?
Welcome to the first in this series of interviews with some pretty inspirational women. The key thing that all of these women have in common is that, imho, they are phenomenal examples of what is possible if you believe in yourself and your ability to achieve. I know. I know. It’s all sounding a bit like… Continue reading Hey! It’s My Life in a Day… featuring N’Damus LONDON
I originally wrote this post during the Summer of 2016, but held onto it. I am publishing it today as I feel the time is now right. It’s a long one, so you may want to grab a cuppa… x In the UK, September is the month during which kids either return to school or… Continue reading A “How To” Guide: When yours is the only non-white child in the classroom…
When I was little, and I got invited to birthday parties by school friends, my mum enforced a strict £5 present buying maximum. Note the use of the word ‘maximum’. Sometimes, we didn’t even reach the full fiver. And if I wanted to top it up, which I didn’t, but if I did, that was… Continue reading How Much Is Too Much?
Kids club is now way more than just somewhere you drop your children during the school holidays. Last Sunday, Big Fish Little Fish (or BFLF to those in the know) invited the Hey fam along to their Jingle Bell Rave, downstairs at The Mangle http://wringerandmangle.com/mangle/, in East London’s, newly gentrified, London Fields. To those of you… Continue reading Big Fish Little Fish: 2-4 Hour Party People!
Gosh! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Feels good to be back… So, the other day I had a Skype coaching session with Johanna Rossi. Johanna is a Holistic Health Coach and the creative force behind @raising_women. She had run a competition in collaboration with Jenny @mamazou85, that my lovely friend Sunita (@luckythingsblog) happened to… Continue reading It’s Good to Talk…
A slightly ranty, although much more lighthearted than the previous one, post. As you may be aware, a few months ago I left my employment. Well, when I say I left, it was more like being shoved out of the door (the big ‘R’), but it all amounts to the same thing: I am now… Continue reading Some things I had forgotten about the morning commute
If not for you, yesterday would have felt a whole lot worse. I heard the news in the morning and I was almost expecting it. There were no tears. There was no 20 minutes sat in silence, trying to comprehend what the hell was going on. There was no sinking feeling in the pit of… Continue reading Thank-you Brexit!
So, I kind of wrote another featured piece for another amazing, mama-run, online publication. The amazing ladies behind Motherhood Reconstructed, Tamu and Leah, have published a little something I wrote on their ‘Back to School’ Topic of the Month. I first started following Tamu when she posted an awesome pic on their Instagram page of what… Continue reading Name-calling in the Playground
