Copywriting and Proofreading Services
If your blog or business needs an injection of inventive, energetic writing, I can also help you with copywriting and proofreading work.
Why You Should Hire Me
As well as running this blog, I founded Bright in Mind and Spirit, I am a leader of the Maternity Experience campaign, and I am a regular contributor to the Huffington Post. I have given several talks to health care professionals about my experiences with my baby son, Hugo including to the Royal Society of Medicine.
I am an Accredited Practitioner of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations, and hold a diploma (with distinction) in Feature Writing.
In March 2016 I was very proud to be named the winner of the Tommy’s Mum’s Voice Award.
I was proud to be named in the HSJ’s list of 50 Patient Leaders in July 2015.
Other accolades include being a finalist in the Best Writer and Outstanding Contribution categories at the 2015 MAD Blog Awards. as well as in the author/blogger category in the 2014 Butterfly Awards, and the shortlist in the Inspire category for the 2015 Brilliance in Blogging Awards.

Reviews and Collaborative Opportunities
Do also get in touch if I can offer a review about the things that make me, me: I love dresses, handbags, shoes, make-up and other pretty things.
To date I have been delighted to work with Radley, Elegant British Brands, Lumie, Phoenix Yard Books, Appleyard Flowers, and White Stuff (selected images below).
I have also written reviews of items and trips I have liked so much I wanted to share them with my readers, such as Lily and Me; make-up; and reasons to go to Bordeaux for example.
Please have the sensitivity to not offer reviews of baby products.
Brands interested in helping support any of the charities I am ambassador for (see sidebar) are very welcome to get in touch!
