I’m Angie, welcome to the blog. Make yourself comfy.


After being a full time Mother for four years (whilst balancing exploring my career options through courses and internships), I am still figuring out who I am and what my purpose is, what I really love to do, and I share parts of this journey on the blog. I am passionate about personal development, so I write about my own experiences and share some of the teachings of my favourite thought leaders. 

                             Follow your curiosity, trust in your unique path, be bold, be brave, and live out loud. 

 “The one thing that unites the people I know who are on satisfying and meaningful paths is that they kept trying things, kept exploring, kept pursuing new opportunities, kept searching until they discovered their ikigai. And then from there they never stop figuring it out because they understand how absolutely crucial this is in creating a life worth living.”Rob Bell, How to be Here 


PERSONAL & SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT. I love reading, watching, and listening to anything I can find on these areas.
Currently listening to: Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations podcast.
Reading: White Hot Truth by Danielle La Porte
Watching: The Lisa Nichols Show
Also: Lewis Howes, Marie Forleo, Chase Jarvis, Mel Robbins and Tim Ferris.

A meditating, clean eating, self-actualised and enlightened Yogi; that’s the end goal…

MOTHERHOOD. The wonders, fears and many joys of being a Mummy. ( Maia has just turned four, four going on fourteen..). I like to think I offer some form of comfort to all the other Mummies who swear and use sugar as a bribe.

LIFE. I interview some awesome people, asking them questions like “What would you tell your 15 year old self?” and “What do you want to achieve before you die?”, with the aim of sharing their experiences and nuggets of wisdom.

CREATIVITY. How to be more creative in your every day life. My creative endeavours; my art, textiles and photography. Occasionally I will paint or sew something pretty, and it ends up on here.

BOOKS. Mainly non-fiction.

THE POWER OF YOUR WARDROBE. I do believe your clothes have an impact on how you feel each day. As superficial as fashion may seem, I know when I look good, I feel happier. Hence clothing has a small spot on the blog. I am up to #85 outfits and counting. – Plus when I’m old and saggy I want to look back and think “Yes I look fabulous in those 365 outfits, everything is so taut and perky; so glad I have these photos to prove it..”.

If this blog makes just one person smile; then I’ll feel it a success.
