Traveling with twins? Want to stay in amazing hotels in Sri Lanka? Read on!
I first visited the island paradise in the early 2000’s as a teenager and stayed in some amazing hotels in Sri Lanka which I still remember to this day! Most recently I returned for 10 days with my boys and husband.
Social media is not the problem, but the way we’ve allowed it to control us is. I learned this the hard way after I gave birth to my boys and sat in New Zealand breastfeeding all hours of the day and night and seeing everyone’s highlight reels from their lives in an endless stream on social platforms.
In September 2015, I launched Nudge, my communications advisory with a solid business plan template, the optimism of a 28-year-old, a few thousand in my bank account and my future in front of me.

Pregnancy glow is a real thing, but as soon as you give birth it slowly starts to fade away. When you hit month 4, the hair loss sets in.

“I’ve embraced cloth diapers” is something I never thought I’d say. Part of it was pride, part of it was convenience. Cloth nappies weren’t cool in my mind. And they are such a mess and a pain! Right? Wrong! Sofi Chabowski of Eggs & Soldiers is an oracle when it comes to living a more natural way –
Summer gives me the space I need to get my head in order after a hectic few months! I had plans at the start of the year to read a book a month, that fell by the wayside, and now we’ve moved house, and I’ve been back on the radio for a few months (check out some BTS on Instagram) I feel like I’m on top of things!
Happy Mothers Day! The last 5 months have been a complete upheaval of life as we knew it. I’ve had deep dark moments I’d never want to revisit, inner strength revealed I never knew I had, the chance to see the world with a little bit more love and the long,
Happy International Women’s Day! I’ve had a few thoughts on where have been able to make progress empowering women. In particular in the workplace it’s focused solely on encouraging women to ‘Lean In’ to the boardroom table, without recognising what men can learn from women. I love my research, and one in gender studies known as the Athena Doctrine has highlighted a set of desirable traits for today’s business leaders that have been identified as feminine;
