I have a passion for the integrated life. Holistic living in mind, body and soul. And also great skincare and nutrition.
However, from mid-March 2020 three of my four family members suffered with Covid-19. My son and husband had mild symptoms and my daughter stayed asymptomatic. I fell into the moderate (borderline severe) category. I restarted my blog and hope that these latest pieces provide helpful accounts and resources for those suffering and for those concerned with this horrible, mystery virus.
Please forgive any grammatical errors and technical issues as I am working on this while I am still ill. Also, I have disabled comments for now as I was getting spam. But you can contact me via social media or on my website contact page.
I have several posts to come regarding Covid-19 such as breathing techniques from a physio that have helped me, mindfulness/meditation amid illness, and our family’s journey in a more condensed way. If there is anything you’d like to hear about, please send a message.
I'm restarting my blog as I want to document my family's experience with Covid-19 aka the Corona virus. This was two days ago from FB on March 23 - the first time I had posted since catching the virus. I have not improved much (day 13 now) but I am hopeful I am...read more

My blog has been in hibernation these last few months. Yes, I have been busy with my ever-expanding portfolio career but I've also moved my website and blog into one place. It has a new look, and I'm finding it much easier to manage. I'm keeping this post short but...read more
The blog has been rather quiet these past few months, and this entry will be short and sweet. I've had numerous projects in my ever-expanding portfolio career - from adverts to commercial shoots to boatloads of voice overs. I'm grateful that it's never dull.A few new...read more
Over the past two months, I’ve turned a corner in the world of voice overs. I have a niche as an American in the north of England, a very small niche, but there are opportunities. It’s taken two years of experimenting, taking risks, creating a home studio through...read more
Around this time two years ago I began to apply for a Master's in Creative Writing. In the end, I was accepted on the course but chose to follow my portfolio career. Though I know it would have been a rewarding journey, I figured I could write creatively...read more
The last few months I've been travelling with various jobs, but most of my extra time has been spent gearing up for applying for permanent residency in the UK as a family. As of the end of June, we will have been here a decade in Sheffield. My son was three months and...read more
I'm a voice artist, and it's probably one of my favourite things I do in my portfolio career. I've done this for the last 18 months in everything from short films, audio dramas and video games to corporate scripts, adverts and animations. You don't have to memorize...read more
It has been a year and a half since signed with my first modelling agent here in the UK. I stumbled into all this after being scouted . . . in my 40s. Though I had some experience as I modelled in my teens with pageants and a department store, crowns and ball gowns...read more
