The Stigma of Leopard

23 Aug 2016 - I love a bit of leopard print. Not too much, or you risk looking ridiculous, but (and I don’t think it’s just me) I have to admit that the stigma it carries does enter my head, that it’s tacky, that you shouldn’t wear it after the age of thirty or even, as I just recently amusingly heard, that you must not wear it before 6pm.

Hello!

I want to inspire women of all ages to lead a happy, healthy and interesting life.  Every day we will share our latest inspirations and new ideas, where to holiday, realistic views on parenting, interviews with some famous faces, fashion and all the good stuff.

Authenticity is a key element in my life, always open and forever honest, and I am the driving force behind this site every step of the way. I love being a woman, I love and support the sisterhood and this site is for all of you hardworking fun loving like minded women.

TV budgets being what they are meant the crew and I couldn’t stay right in the the thick of the action but were put up in a hotel down the road.
