The Pain of Hypermobility

2022-09-20T13:46:24+00:00September 7th, 2022|Heal Thyself|

Beyond the party tricks of being able to bend in ways that your peers cannot, hypermobility sucks for most people. By the time I was 13, I had already dislocated my left knee and experienced lock jaw. I was always in pain, only to be fobbed off and told it was growing pain because my joints hurt. What can you

The Ultimate juggling act 

2022-09-20T13:45:37+00:00June 21st, 2022|A War of Words Blog|

I have always bitten off more than I can chew; that’s a chronic habit from my childhood that I never really outgrew. It’s one of the main reasons that I’m hopelessly overworked and feeling burnt is because I’m often spread too thin by new ideas. But, this makes up such a core part of me and often works in my

March to the beat of your own drum 

2022-09-20T13:44:39+00:00February 24th, 2022|Alpha Woman|

Another year, another running thought about how much I haven’t written and how much I’m a failure at my own passion. I spend so much time fulfilling everyone else’s needs that I tend to forget my own, and then when I realise that I have pushed my own goals to the side, along comes the self-depreciative imposter syndrome, talking about

Juggling personal writing with paid writing 

2022-09-20T13:39:28+00:00November 22nd, 2021|A War of Words Blog|

Writers of all levels know this - it’s the hardest thing to do, especially when you have other commitments that need to be done. After a long day with a commute, the last thing you want to do is write that manuscript that you’ve been meaning to do for the last three years. It’s overwhelming, knackering and your brain hurts.

Ladies, it’s time to be kinder to each other 

2022-09-20T13:52:33+00:00November 17th, 2021|Alpha Woman|

Women already have the shitty end of the stick. We’re already stigmatised as the lesser gender, and have to face gender pay gaps, constant discrimination and unwanted sexual attention throughout their lives. But there is a much more sinister element at play, one that’s not talked about much, and it’s the way women talk to each other and about each

Are you tracking your progress? 

2022-09-20T13:43:02+00:00November 10th, 2021|Sprout Your Business|

Unlike every data driven article, this will not be about tracking your social media metrics or your website traffic. This is about tracking your progress and productivity in general. Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about productivity and myself, but I was only able to learn this from collecting data and looking at what has worked for me and

Why this generation is “different, lazy and overly sensitive”

2022-09-20T13:35:46+00:00November 9th, 2021|Deep Thoughts|

With every generation, there are key changes in how we live and do things and we have seen this time and time again in the past. Remember when people said Elvis and his music was provocative and satanic? Yeah, I don’t remember either because I was a 90’s baby but people actually said that. I wonder what those people would

To marry or not to marry; WHY is this a question?!

2022-09-20T13:31:01+00:00October 7th, 2021|Growing Up Girl|

We live in a society where life has an expected order: go to school, college, university, get a job, start a career, meet someone, get a car, get married, buy a house, start a family, upgrade your car, go on annual holidays, send your kids to university, and work until you’re exhausted and can’t enjoy your retirement. This sounds a

Surviving loneliness in a relationship 

2022-09-20T13:23:00+00:00October 1st, 2021|In Search of Myself|

There comes a time in any relationship where you start to feel like things just aren’t progressing as they should be. It’s natural. When you think about typical partnerships, you have two people who are growing and evolving at different speeds and in a variety of ways, who both share experiences but have individual experiences that impact them in different

My software line up for the past year 

2021-07-20T16:47:18+00:00September 28th, 2021|• Reshare, Tech|

I’m a massive software junkie. I love every part of the testing and writing process, and I do love trying new tech. I’m known to run beta software versions on my daily drivers because I like being part of the process but I also believe that having non-tech power users can help developers understand how their software is being used

I reject the hustle lifestyle

2021-07-20T16:46:13+00:00September 14th, 2021|• Featured, • Reshare, C'est Ma Vie!|

If you know me, then you know that I’m mostly laid back, very organised and anal about time. But I’m not one of those rush-rush anal about time people, I’m more the laid back perfectionist type, the one who likes to make sure that I’ve overbooked a little extra so that I can enjoy the process, not just rush through

Being an Alpha Woman in a patriarchal society 

2022-09-20T13:43:54+00:00September 13th, 2021|Alpha Woman|

Whether we like it or not, society is still patriarchal. I love my partner and have nothing but respect for him, but he’s still patriarchal; as is my own family, and many of my friends and work colleagues. I look around, and while women can vote, drive cars and start a business, men still think it’s “cute” when a woman

Social media “engagement” is a lie 

2022-09-20T13:33:10+00:00August 4th, 2021|TILT Your Marketing|

I’m a marketer, but I personally do not engage on social media in the typical way that all of my peers, professional and personal, do. It’s a personal preference and it works for me.  I’ll put my hand up and say that I don’t personally engage on social media because it’s just downright exhausting. I spend eight to ten hours

The weather is bipolar in the UK 

2022-09-20T13:24:21+00:00July 23rd, 2021|Native Immigrant|

The weather. The second most talked about topic in the UK, only just trailing behind football. The reason why it’s number 2 in the conversation charts is because of it’s pure unpredictability. Gone are the days when I can actually plan for an outdoor house party or BBQ. In the UK, we have to have two plans for everything, one
