Some Of My Favourite Books Written By Women

It’s International Women’s Day and I thought I would take the opportunity to create a list of some of my favourite books by women from the last year or two. I’ve tried to narrow it down as I could have been here all day if I included them all, so here are five of my…

Quick Book Chat – All the Crime Thrillers

Hi guys, Today I have another quick, chatty video all about books! I’d love it if you give it a watch and let me know any of your book recommendations. Are you a crime fan? Do you love a good thriller? I feel like the crime novel world is buzzing at the moment, with so…

Mini Book Haul

Today I’m talking about new books on my YouTube channel. I’m definitely reading a lot of crime novels and thrillers at the moment but there’s still nice mix I think!    

Quick Book Chats!

I love watching youtube videos about books, crafting, lifestyle ideas and fashion. A while ago I had my own YouTube video but I fell out of the habit of recording videos and focused on writing instead. However, I love the quick chatty videos that I see others doing on YouTube and so I’ve decided to…

Become My Patron!

It’s a bit of a strange feeling to be asking for money, but I’ve been following creatives on Patreon for a while and supporting when I can. I wasn’t sure that as a writer that there was anything I could offer in exchange for a monthly donation, however, today I decided to take the plunge…

Written Meditation for Insomnia

I have suffered from insomnia since I was a child. I have periods of sleeping well and then during times of stress, excitement or sometimes when there is seemingly no reason at all, I will suddenly find it impossible to sleep. I have tried pretty much everything you can think of: melatonin, sleeping tablets, herbal…

How are writing and teaching connected?

Recently I have been going through a lot of soul searching. Partly it’s been due to leaving my job at a marketing agency and partly it’s because I have started training to be a yoga teacher and thinking more about my long-term aspirations. I’ve always been a writer. I don’t think you need to be…

Books I’ve Loved in January

I am (more than) a little behind with my book reviewing this month. It has been a really crazy month for lots of reasons so I’ve decided to put all of my book reviews for January in one post. I’ve read nine books this month and I’m going to talk about my three favourites here;…

BLOG TOUR: The Day We Met

I received a copy of The Day We Met by Roxie Cooper as part of the book tour to celebrate its release.  Stephanie doesn’t believe in fate or true love. Jamie is happily married and completely incompatible with Stephanie’s less than romantic views. But one weekend in 2006, the pair are thrown together as Stephanie struggles…

How to set the scene for your yoga practice

Yoga is a fantastic self-care practice and it becoming ever more popular. Whether it’s practicing a few sun salutations each morning or a longer power yoga class, all yoga is great for the mind, body and spirit. One element of yoga that I really enjoy, is preparing for a really immersive practice. Sometimes at home…
