For all the mamas out there with girls in constant battle for hair brushing and washing. Well this one started to take care of her hair about 6 months ago and we’ve never looked back. I coached her on how to brush and wash properly and still help from time to time. Now she’s teaching herself hairstyles. And very stylish too. . There was a time I thought I’d be in this battle for ever (still in it with my 8 year old) but Loulou is 11 and enjoying experimenting with styles and understanding what it means to take care of her extremely thick and beautiful hair. . There is light at the end of that tunnel! . . . . #kidshairstyles #haircare #11yearoldgirl #bringingupdaughters
It’s that time of year again. Where I slap on a smile for the kids and pretend to like Christmas. This year I will be trying to make it even greener than next year. 🎅🏼No wrapping paper, I will try and make the wrapping a gift in itself (I’ve bought wooden boxes before and even used tea towels and dish cloths) 🎅🏼No excessive Amazon deliveries. They still use too much plastic. 🎅🏼 One valuable gift per person, no excessive tat 🎅🏼No Christmas cards, haven’t sent them in years, but will send e-greetings and donate to charity. Anything else I’ve missed? Share your ideas. #greenchristmas
Hot chocolate and sunset @mollyscoffeeshop #rottingdeanbeach - a very chilled #Sussex afternoon.
Doubtful? Maybe. Wine is good. My DJ-ing done. What a great week. But now I am detoxing with one of my playlists. 4 discos in 3 days!
Dear Lord that was a mighty stormy day. Hope everyone is safe and well. This was the marina this evening. Kudos to the @brighton_marina yacht club for an awesome #Halloween disco. The kids loved it. . . . #brighton #halloween #yachtclub #brightonyachtclub
Praise be! How is it possible that Brighton had two LIVING LEGENDS in our city at the same time last night? We were listening to @therealmargaretatwood at the Dome. I pinched the picture of @thisispattismith from @tulaparker.artist who was listening to that amazing lady. Both of these incredible women remind us the freedom that true equality represents for women, perhaps a freedom we don’t realise we need. And for the #wingingit mum crowd - Margaret says she’s a total ‘panster’ not planner (in other words, fly by the seat of your pants) so true creativity and insight can some from anywhere amidst that. Tell yourself that when you’re slumped and overwhelmed from parenting. Your moment will come! . . . . . #livinglegend #margaretatwood #pattismith #underhiseye #praisebe
Obligatory Halloween pic. For the first time in aaaaggges I haven’t dressed up. I’m going to @therealmargaretatwood @brighton_dome so kept it low key! Gutted to not be trick or treating with these in our hood but so excited about my evening. Happy Samhain Brighton. You always do this celebration proud. 👻🎃 #halloween #brightonhalloween #happyhalloween #samhain
The Level looked beautifully autumnal this morning. So we are back. After a break. Hello Instagram. . A few health issues (nothing serious) and a step back from social media was needed. Also the day job @claritadigital has happily gone crazy busy! And I’m on here for clients a LOT! 😀 . . . . #brighton #autumn #autumninbrighton #cityparks
Hasn’t this generation got it sorted? After Year 11 (GCSE year for old farts like me) they have to the choice to do @ncssummervolunteering2019 - This group of Year 11s chose to help @homelessperiodbrighton by collected donations of sanitary supplies and raising awareness of the problem. They will be in New Road all week so please go along with your donations and to show your support. #gowiththeflow #homelessperiod #endperiodpoverty @sanitaryproducts4all
