Queens. Stop lying to yourselves!

We tell ourselves all sorts of lies when we see the best in people. We see the potential that they don’t and we hold onto it, hoping that they’ll see what you see and want what you want. Newsflash: Not everybody interested in you is eligible for you. Nobody is perfect but having potential is…

Those little reminders…

This was Sandwell Valley Park with my Mini Queens. I remember this day. I hadn’t really taken them anywhere like that by myself before and it was so busy. I was so anxious about taking them somewhere like that because I’d worry that Amelia would run off or that someone might try to take them….

Yes. I’m busy.

I have an over-active mind which means I like to keep busy. I like being organised and planning things in advance, which means my diary is full at times. My time is precious so I have to plan ahead productively so I’m not wasting mine or anyone else’s time. I attend uni three times a…

Respect boundaries!

It’s amazing how many people you can offend when you dish out some of the same shit they throw at you. They don’t like it but they didn’t mind sending it your way? Okay. Watch how many people get upset by your growth, your increased confidence and achievements. Listen out for the sly comments, digs…

Help A Queen Out – GET INVOLVED!

I don’t know if you know about this yet, but I’ve been working on something quite fantastic! Help A Queen Out is an online networking hour on Twitter, hosted by myself, and designed to connect women who wish to empower and support the growth of other women. We’ve so far discussed goals, ideas, podcasts, mentors…

Anni – The Bad Influence Friend

I’m that friend that will encourage you to be true to yourself and be happy like you deserve. So if your partner feels threatened by your growth, they probably won’t like me. A few years ago I had a best friend whose boyfriend didn’t like me because he thought I was a bad influence. He would…

Writing. It’s a personal thing.

A whole collection of my writing, articles, interviews and reviews has been deleted from a website without me being notified beforehand. I found out by chance and was so angry at first. I wanted to scream and shout. I wanted to cry. I was gutted that an entire online portfolio could be wiped out like…

Concrete Love – WEB SERIES

It seems a little bit surreal to be writing this right now… But. Around a year ago I wrote a troubled love story and my good friend Steffan Zachiyah has developed it into a web series! I was recently on set on the last day of filming and it was so good to be there…

Laptops & Lipstick – A great event!

This week I was invited to speak at Kickass Talks: Laptops & Lipstick for International Women’s Day. I’ll be honest, I didn’t know what to expect but I knew that anything my friend Paula Hemmings is involved with will be oozing with great energy. I was the first speaker, which is awesome because I get…

So You Want To Write A Book? – Debut Success!

Last month I held a fantastic event called So You Want To Write A Book? The concept was simply this: two featured authors share their writing journey and process to a room full of eager and aspiring writers with plenty of questions. It was a success! The first author was 16-year-old Louisa Brown who gave…

My Rebirth

I know I’m super late with this but in January I celebrated my rebirth anniversary. I’ve been officially single for three years now and I’ve celebrated it every year with friends. It’s not a celebration of being single, or a celebration of not being in that particular relationship anymore, it is an acknowledgement of my growth…

Love & Relationships

I’ll be honest with YOU here, I am not great at family relationships. I think we can all agree that families can be complex, the dynamics are something else and it can be pretty difficult to … Source: Love & Relationships
