Social Media Superpowers with Sharpfox

Social Media Superpowers with Sharpfox

I love social media, especially Instagram. I sort of know my way around and sure enough spend (waste) a lot of time on it but do I really know what I’m doing? Nope! So I jumped at the chance to have a one to one social media session with Kat of Sharpfox. She doesn’t wear a cape but she’s definitely a superhero when it comes to all things social media. First off, this was no usual training course and I’ve been on more than my fair share of the “death… View Post

Fashion: Reboot

I hope you are all ok and have navigated your way through the holidays (for those of you with school-aged kiddos) and come out the other side in one piece and still speaking to your children!

Let me know if you do! Everything you take to a festival you will need to carry. Probably for quite a long way. Maybe even in really high temperatures. Packing is key and if you allow your… View Post

September will be where it’s at

September will be where it’s at

Some of you may remember that I blogged about Cowley Manor on a day that was 29 degrees in early July and joked that the second the school holidays arrived the heavens would open and the weather would turn sh**. Ha! Sorry about that! BUT….. wouldn’t it be funny if on the 4th September when (my) kids go back to school we saw the start of an Indian summer and just as those of us who have tiny people to entertain start to feel sad that summer is over we… View Post
