How to be happy (no matter what sh!t life throws at you!)


My e-book  is part-memoir, part personal development and it will make you laugh and cry whilst teaching you valuable life lessons.

Did you know that...

>> first grown-up job saw me working for a man with links to the Russian mafia, and I saw him in handcuffs on the evening news one Friday?

>>...I moved to France for 3 months...and end up staying there for 12 years?

>>...I met my husband in a bar when I was drunk? That 3 months after meeting him we moved in together, and that 6 months and 21 days after that fateful Saturday evening we got engaged?

>>...I nearly died after childbirth?

>>...I used to want to eBay my eldest daughter?

>>...I got accused of child abuse?

>> first business failed and led to me moving back into my childhood home as a 34 year old with a husband and 3 year old daughter in tow?

People often ask me how I am able to take things in my stride, to make such great decisions, to be happy and fulfilled in my life in general.

So I wrote a book with my stories and the lessons learnt from them to share with others.


How to be happy (no matter what sh!t life throws at you!) is part-memoir, part personal development.

Tracey Maurin went into more detail about her thoughts on it and shared this:

"Some of the things that made me laugh out loud:

>>...Jane the sex beast!

>>...Russian ballet dancer handshake! 

>>...The fact that French TV is indeed so shit!

>>...Wanting to eBay Léna (I also think your honesty here was brilliant as SO many of us have been / go through this and think we’re bad parents for having these thoughts)

>>...Mooing in labour with your lardy arse and cellulite thighs! (Again, brutal honesty to make you relatable and reassuring to real women) 

>>...The pelvic floor description in France whilst discussing Christmas plans! 

I love the way that you are so honest in the book which so many people will appreciate and relate to and find comfort in, especially:

>>...The shouty mummy

>>...Your honesty in the very troubled period in your marriage and losing yourself

>>...It was heart-breaking reading about your miscarriage and it gave me a clearer understanding as to how women are massively affected by this.

>>...It made me well up reading the Life Reboot Camp feedback about saving marriages – what you do is amazing.

>>...I loved the advice about watching kids while they sleep when they are going through very challenging phases.

>>...I loved the bit about when you got to Mauritius and Priscille turned up with a welcome basket – it made me feel all warm inside and I fell in love with Priscille who I don’t even know!

>>...Even though I have read about your journey through your blog, it was lovely reading it all in detail."


“It’s taken me just an hour and 10 minutes to read your book, Sophie. You’ve taken me from tears to laughter and through all of your highs and lows. I loved every page and am sure it will inspire many more ladies to believe in themselves and follow their dreams. You are amazing and thank you for everything you do.”
