When thinking about a start up or wanting to turn your hobby into an income stream, you will need advice on what do and the best way to do it. As someone who’s been through this before I can tell you every man and his dog will give you their views on what they think you should do. There is so much information out there it can be really overwhelming & frustrating and scary to think of exactly what SHOULD be done.My advice as someone who’s dabbled in small and online business is to just start.

When … Read More about Why Create A Capsule Wardrobe?
I drove past a billboard many years ago that read “Life is not a dress rehearsal”. It’s always stuck in my mind, probably as I agree wholeheartedly. I have always thought life is about living – not existing. Be sporadic, explore the tracks, take a chance. Why not indeed? I never wanted to be … Read More about Life is about living – not existing
Right, so I swung past the big 4.0 this past weekend. A bit of a fizzer perhaps, esp. for a party girl like me (no big party was had). To be honest, I didn’t really want one. I had so many other things on my mind that a party was the last thing I needed. … Read More about Right, so I swung past the big 4.0 this past weekend…
