As you’ve clicked on this tab you probably want to know a little bit more about me, so rather than boring you senseless with my CV, I thought I’d give you a brief summary…here goes…

Born in the 80’s, the same year that the world was introduced to E.T and Annie (both subsequently favourite films of mine!), I grew up in Cheshire and later moved over the Pennines when I went to study Japanese & Business Studies at Leeds University. I was fortunate enough to spend a year at Tokyo University as part of my degree course and had a grand old time travelling around Japan, eating sushi. Upon graduating, I moved back to Cheshire {dragging my lovely ‘then-boyfriend, now-husband, Andy’ with me} and embarked on a marketing career for a good few years.

In January 2009, Andy and I had a ‘now or never’ moment, resulting in us leaving our jobs to travel the world for the following 8 months. We had an amazing trip taking in the wonderful sights of South America, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, S E Asia, India and Kenya and came back engaged after an utterly idyllic proposal at the sun gate overlooking Machu Picchu in Peru. The boy did good!

I married my best friend in the most perfect way upon our return to the UK and we had the most magical big day surrounded by all our family and friends. The sun even shone, which is a rarity in these parts! One year on, we created the most beautiful little boy and in June 2014, we added to our brood with the most gorgeous little girl.

I love to travel. I’m slightly obsessed with Cadbury’s Creme Eggs. I think I have a great singing voice. Others aren’t so sure. I laugh easily. I adore my fabulous family, my best friends, African sunsets, the smell of freshly cut grass, the sound of the sea, laughter, photo frames {you should see our house; I have a slight addiction!}, Fruitellas, being outdoors, sushi, Proteas, cupcakes, polaroids and of course my camera (as an ex-wedding photographer, its hard to break the habit!)

And that’s it…me and my life summed up in 4 paragraphs!

All that’s left now is for you to grab a cup of tea, put your feet up and have a good old nosy around my blog. Oh and don’t be shy…you can always leave a few comments here and there if the mood takes you.

Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you on the blog often!
