Homeschooling: why and how we are doing it

Homeschooling: why and how we are doing it - Love the Life You Live!

Homeschooling is such a controversial subject and until very recently one that I wasn’t particularly interested in. That is until we decided to pull 11 year old Léna out of secondary school to homeschool her. I’ve mentioned it a couple of times on social media and soooooo many people have asked me about it so […]

Burnout: how I got it and how I dealt with it

Burnout: How I got it & How I dealt with it - Love the Life You Live!

Most people don’t know that I have suffered from burnout. You see I don’t tend to share when things are going badly. I hole up, I lick my wounds, I work through it all in my head, confiding in one or two people close to me, and then I may, or may not, share about it […]

Women empowering women - - Love the Life You Live!

Is it just me or has the idea of Sisterhood and women empowering women gone down the toilet? I was brought up to believe that friends look after friends, and that sisters support each other.

Stop the thigh gap shame!

Stop the thigh gap shame - - Love the Life You Live!

When I was in my twenties I had a difficult break-up with a serious boyfriend and I lost loads of weight, yet even at my absolute skinniest, with my hip bones jutting out, I didn’t have a thigh gap.

Is Your Dream Worth The Sacrifice?

A bit more than 2 years ago my little family and I moved from the UK to Mauritius. And I know lots of people thought “what lucky b*stards!”, but what most people don’t know is that this is a journey that Ben and I have been on since the end of 2003. So today I […]

Toxic Friends: Recognising them & Dealing with them

I’d never heard of the term “Toxic Friend” until a few years ago, but I understood it immediately. If you know me at all you’ll know that I’m a happy-go-lucky kind of person, I’m positive and optimistic with a glass that is always at least half full. I also have lots of self-confidence BUT even I […]

Comparison is the Thief of Joy and Why YOU Need to Stop it

Are you the Queen of Comparison? How many times have you looked at someone – a friend, neighbour, colleague, school mum, family member – and said to yourself “she’s got it all, she’s got it made, she’s got such a good life”? And then turned round and compared her life to your own life? We […]
