Want to get to know me a little more?

Today you get two posts as I’m celebrating the milestone that is 500 followers on my blog!


I feel like an actress who’s just walked onto a stage to collect an Oscar – I want to thank all of you. Thanks for being part of my tribe – I think you’re all amazing (read why here).

So, I thought I’d celebrate by sharing a little more of who I am with you.

So here it is, the A – Z of me:

Accessories– I am seduced by pretty accessories, high heels, red lipstick, painting my nails, jewellery, handbags…you get the idea!


Beautiful – I look for something beautiful every day; an object, a person or an act

Coffee – couldn’t imagine a world without it…or did I mean to say cocktails? I need both basically!



Dancing – I love a good old dance around the handbags

Exercise – I don’t always enjoy going but love how it makes me feel!

Feminine – Sometimes I’m girly, sometimes a woman, occasionally a bitch but always proud of who I am!

Gratitude – I live a grateful life and end every day thinking about things that made me smile

Happy – I love making people smile (including myself)


Inspiration – I love reading all of your blogs and being inspired to create great content. But I also get it from music, art, life’s experiences and talking to people

Juggling – my blog, family and a full time job!

Kids – mine are the best! They are my happy place.

Love – it’s what makes the world go round and can change lives

Music – I have an eclectic taste, depending on what I’m doing and the mood I’m in! Heavy metal, jazz, classical, 80’s hair metal, 90’s club classics all feature on my iPod!

Nature – I love long walks in the fresh air – fields, forests or the beach. Somehow the outdoors soothes my soul.


Old – I love ‘old stuff’ but I like to call it retro! Think photos, 50s style dresses, Victorian cake stands, vintage jewellery and handbags…


Poetry – I write poems that I rarely share.

Quotes – if you’re a regular reader, you’ll know I cannot resist a good quote. I get excited when I find one that fits perfectly.


Romance – I’m an old romantic…think candlelight, roses, soft music, holding hands…swoon!

Shimmer – My blog inspiration. It’s like shining only softer, quieter, prettier and with more class!

Tears – I am emotional. I regularly shed a tear – at films, kind words, stories, spontaneous acts of kindness.

Unique – we should champion our differences. It’s what makes you, you.


Volume – I like life to be quiet unless I’m in the gym, then the music in my ears needs to be loud (and heavy!)

Wishes – I make them all the time. Every time I see a white feather, a rainbow or blow a dandelion clock.

Xoxo – hugs and kisses are so important to me and I need them everyday.

You – I love connecting with everyone who leave messages on my blog.

Zzzzz – my bed is my favourite place to be.

Hope you enjoyed this random list of things you didn’t know about me – don’t take it too seriously!

Tell me one random thing you’d love me to know about yourself in the comments below.
