What is the future of social media?

Time for a Social Media Detox? A short video on my thoughts on stepping away from social media and how it will help free time up for me and my family #socialmedia #detox #freetime #mentalhealth #positivity #familytime #selfcare #coaching

I wasn’t going to say anything more about social media after my announcement on Monday to step away from it, but I have been inundated with #metoo kind of messages from others so here is a little bit more about it. I have received tons of messages including these: “Great decision. It’s where I am […]


Social Media or Suicidal Media? (The Week That Was)

It is surely no coincidence that every time I type “social media” into my phone it autocorrects to “suicidal media”? I have had a love-hate relationship with social media for the longest time and have walked away from Facebook, Instagram et al many times over the last 5 years, including for a 3 month period […]


An open letter to my 6 year old daughter

An open letter to my 6 year old daughter - www.SophieLeBrozec.com - Love the Life You Live !

In 2012 I started a parenting blog, Franglaise Mummy, (which I’ve since retired) and in 2013 I decided to write a birthday letter to my daughters for their 1st and 7th birthdays. I continued that tradition every year, and although this doesn’t really fit with this new blog I don’t want to stop it! So […]

Stop with the Shoulds!

Stop with the shoulds - www.SophieLeBrozec.com: Love the Life You Live!

When you’re a mum “should” is a word that is all too frequently used. There is always so much you “should” be doing that you either spend your time doing what you “should” do, instead of what you want to do, or you go with your heart and feel bad about your list of “shoulds” […]

The Best Mistake I Ever Made

The best mistake I ever made (and it's not about my baby!) www.SophieLeBrozec.com - Love the Life You Live!

I love the reframe of this. I don’t believe in wrong decisions or failures, so I love looking at what “went wrong” and seeing what I learnt from it. And that’s what my best mistake was. A big lesson for me. I’m going to take you back in time. To 2006. I was 30 years […]

Homeschooling: why and how we are doing it

Homeschooling: why and how we are doing it - www.SophieLeBrozec.com: 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 - www.SophieLeBrozec.com: 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 – Whatever Happened to Sisterhood?

Women empowering women - www.SophieLeBrozec.com - 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. And in my world it really felt that way – I’m surrounded by some incredible “sisters” (real and otherwise) and […]

Stop the thigh gap shame!

Stop the thigh gap shame - www.SophieLeBrozec.com - 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. Young girls growing up now are being bombarded with online challenges to have skinnier thighs, narrower […]
