Work life balance
Let’s Talk Trolls
The internet has changed the world forever and has bought us so many positive and wonderful things. It has expanded our world bringing to us so much we would have missed before.
For me, it has given me an amazing audience from across the world who support and encourage me every single day. It has given me the global reach to share my passion for teaching my craft worldwide. It allows me to share images of my work with no limitations on who can see it. I love the feedback which is a two-way street on the feel-good factor. If it makes my followers smile, it in return makes me feel happy.
Unfortunately, the downside is that the internet has made it possible for negativity to also reach your inbox and that’s what I want to talk about in this blog as it affects so many people in different ways.

Blog ideas regularly come to me in the middle of the night or as I’m dropping off to sleep. In fact, this one was midnight!!! and when the idea for this blog came to me, I had to put pen to paper quick or I would have forgotten it by morning.
I want to take a look at what can hold us back in life, both personally and professionally. My inspiration for this blog was motivated by the number of messages I get daily from people who want to set up their own cake businesses or embark on a new hobby. They are hesitant for various reasons and give themselves excuses as to why now isn’t the right time for them or because they feel they may not be good enough.
Our mind is an integral powerful part of us all but it does have the ability to skew our thinking, putting perceived obstacles in our way. It’s easy to focus on the “what ifs” and what could go wrong, rather than what could go right. If you wait for the perfect time it will never happen so just go for it and embrace the challenge – you may be pleasantly surprised!Read More
2020 Resolutions or challenges
Do you stick to your New Year resolutions? I know I don’t. So often we set ourselves up to fail by giving ourselves unrealistic targets when we make resolutions. So this year I thought I would take a more holistic approach.Read More
Believe it or not I actually love being a house wife. I love being at home watering my house plants and cooking dinner for when my husband and kids come home. Despite my best endeavours at managing, this last year was manic. Building my business is very rewarding but very time consuming. In fact I find being a working parent can be hard, as I am sure some of you may be aware. So this year I decided to made some life changes rather than resolutions.
My story – A self employed mum
If you read my last blog post you’ll have been introduced to the creator of Kerry’s Bouqcakes. Since writing this, I had a lightbulb moment, that little flutter of inspiration; it got me thinking, how many women are out there trying to juggle work life alongside being a mother?
I totally get it, it is NOT easy and I wanted to share with you my experiences of juggling so you know you’re not alone.Read More
