6/14/2018
More
"Where are all the black mothers on Instagram?" was a question asked by my guest on this episode - mum of two, Candice Brathwaite. The blogger and presenter was fed up of seeing such a narrow, white, middle-class version of motherhood all across the media and along with Nicola Washington and Sarah Gregory, launched the Make Motherhood Diverse campaign. I could have talked to Candice all day about the lack of diversity when it comes to brands and media representing motherhood - in our chat...

#32 Ciara Attwell on Fussy Eaters

6/8/2018
More
Are your children fussy eaters? My seven-year-old is fairly fussy - with a love of beige food and a limited intake of vegetables - so I really enjoyed chatting to my latest guest on the podcast, Ciara Attwell. Ciara is a mum of two and author of My Fussy Eater, a brilliant recipe book filled with ideas for meals and snacks for the whole family. Everything is easy to make and should hopefully tempt event the fussiest of kids to try new foods. Thankfully, Ciara isn't one of those judgmental...

Elle Wright is, quite simply, one of the strongest and most inspiring people I've met. In 2016, Elle and her husband Nico welcomed their son, Teddy, into the world, but three days later, after health complications, they had to say goodbye to him and Teddy died. Within two weeks, they set up a fundraising page to tell people about Teddy and to raise money in his name, for the neonatal unit that cared for Teddy during his short life. To date, they've raised over £43,000. In 2017, Elle...

I loved recording this episode of the podcast - my guest, Lisa Smosarski, is a mum of three and is the Editor of one of my favourite magazines, Stylist.

1/18/2018
More
Anyone else get totally fed up with being encouraged to eat, drink and be merry all December and then told they have to diet and go to the gym as soon as we hit January 1st? It makes me really cross - the guilt that's laid on us for daring to enjoy ourselves at Christmas and the messages everywhere that we have to lose weight and be slimmer is so damaging. I've chatted lots about my feelings on body confidence on social media and my blog, so I thought it was really important to cover the...

How do you look after yourself, as a mum? For some people, it's about getting to the gym or eating leafy greens, but for me it's about spending quality time with friends who recharge my batteries, listening to my favourite podcasts, planning in lots of evenings where I can wear my PJs and watch Netflix, and drinking lots of water. My guest, in this episode, Rosie Nixon favours gym classes and getting her nails done - and we also discuss why it's important, as a mum, to carve out that time...
