Passion not Perfection

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

Hello fabulous creatives,

This week I’m on a mission to encourage you to dare to show up with your creative work and be your most authentic self. We live in world that is becoming more and more glossy and perfect by the day.  Although I enjoy a spot of glamour and I appreciate beauty, I believe that it has tipped us all into an obsession with being perfect. Perfection leads to self judgement and this stops us from taking creative risks, or daring to show up authentically.  I think we need to take a stand for our uniqueness, rather than compare ourselves with the air brushed industry standard.

Most importantly, I feel that David is a role model for bravery and authenticity. He dares to show up and show us his vulnerability. It moves us, while entertaining us at the same time.




I would love to hear your feedback and your point of you on this topic.  This is my passionate stand – what’s your perspective? Do let me know in the comments below.

Overwhelmed? Try this exercise..

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

It’s easy to tip into overwhelm when you are self-employed or running a business.
Not only are you a creator, but you are probably the office manager, marketing department and chief tea maker! Wearing so many hats can be demanding on the brain and can lead to feeling depleted.

The worst thing you can do at these moments is to make a decision. When we are stressed, we are more likely to buy things that we don’t need, eat foods that make our energy worse and develop a short fuse with those we love.

Well, this video offers the ideal solution for these moments. Save this page for whenever you need some respite. Whenever you need to get back into the driving seat and feel calm and focused once more.

I would love to hear your feedback. Do leave a comment below.
