“Sometimes that means walking away and opening your heart to something new” “I feel like a failure,” a friend said to me recently half a bottle of wine into a long-overdue catch-up. “Why?” I asked, curious to what on earth she could fail at. Said friend is the classic over-achiever. She has the house, the career, the...
‘Nothing captures the light like the dark’ The moon has been an endless topic of conversation, wonder and wisdom since the beginning of time. Is there anything as magical as the golden glow of moonlight in a dark night sky? Like creativity, it is full of contradictions. Forever fluctuating in shape and energy, from slithery...
When I resorted to Twitter last Thursday afternoon to ask “has anyone seen my mojo?” I discovered (with relief) I’m far from alone. Keeping mojo’s perky versus the montage of life’s demands seems to trip many writer’s up as we walk the creative path. We need to chat about the elusive magic that keeps our...
‘Friendship is the sweetest flower’ “Will you be my friend?” I am claiming that as life’s greatest question. Who remembers plucking up the courage to ask it at school? I do, I bagged myself Nina.

Autumn has its benefits don’t get me wrong, pumpkin spices lattes, an extra hour in bed. Still, those dark mornings and pending winter can have us all feeling the need for some sunshine. Discovering Belinda’s work in an eclectic studio of Chelsea felt synchronic. Beautiful chaos demands attention. Belinda refuses to manipulate her work for...
“Creativity is your wild side calling” What is creativity? I love this question it conjures up a different answer for everyone. Essentially it is the use of our greatest gift, the imagination. Many of us never fully unwrap it. We leave it under the tree of real life for when we have more time. Opening...
When I asked Alice for an interview, tracking her down on her addictive Instagram feed, chirpy energy poured into her warm, friendly responses.
