About Me


I’m a heel wearing, lipstick loving, word hungry, fun finding, cocktail craving, hopeless romantic who has experienced rock bottom and the journey of rebuilding a stronger, more authentic version of myself.

A lovely lady once said that my blog shows you how to “…obtain the glow of being yourself.”

I am passionate about helping you find yourself in order for you to be yourself – glow included!

As a therapeutic play worker in a primary school I am passionate about helping young people find their smile. At The Shimmer Within Her I want to share the magic by helping you become confident in who you are. As the name suggests, it’s all about actively reflecting within ’til you shimmer baby!


Who wants to live in a world where everyone shimmers?

I do.

And I bet you do to.

So let’s get this party started…

Need some encouragement? Read Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful.

Interested in what I get up to? Try my Not Your Average series.

Inspired to live an authentic life? Read I’m Not Apologising! or What Would it Take for Your Soul to Sing?

Want to know what makes me smile? Read my weekly post It’s The Little Things.

Thank you for stopping by. I look forward to you becoming part of my tribe!

  3. What a wonderful “about me” page! I feel as if we’re quite similar actually – “I’m a heel wearing, lipstick loving, word hungry, fun finding, cocktail craving, hopeless romantic” – that’s me in a nutshell!

    Lovely to meet you 🙂
