I have a message for you Clarks Shoes: In 2015, not EVERY girl wants their shoes covered in flowers and sparkles. Maybe, just maybe, you might want to think about that when designing your 2016 range. Because, at the moment, you’ve got a pretty dire choice in your kids’ product range for girls who want […]Read More Girls, sparkles and buying shoes
I’ve not written anything on my blog yet this month. And there’s a reason for that. I recently found out that my friend Rachael is fighting cancer and that she’s been writing a very powerful and enlightening blog about her fight with the Big C. It’s a moving, but inspirational, read and it’s helping her […]Read More The story of one girl’s fight against cancer
Mobile is great. I love my Android smartphone, I love my Apple iPad and I love the fact that I can be connected to the online world wherever I am at any time (well, as long as there’s a phone mast or some handy wifi in the area).

There, waiting patiently for me, was a tweet informing me that I’d made a mistake in a tweet. Apparently, I used the term […]Read More Attack of the killer pedants!

It’s sunny! Hurray, I hear you cry! But when the sun shines in the UK something very strange happens. Normally sensible, right-thinking people suddenly take leave of their senses when it comes to the matter of clothes (or, in many cases, the lack of clothes). Walk down any high street on a reasonably sunny summer […]Read More Why the British can’t dress for sunshine
Pizza. We all love pizza, don’t we. (Well, technically that’s not true, but for the purposes of this blog let’s just assume we ALL love a nice slice of hot pizza…) So, let’s imagine the scene… You and your team are working late. It’s been a long day and you’ve all been working hard to […]Read More Politics for pizza lovers
