Making Space

For many of us, now that schools are finally back, the summer holiday memories are fading as fast as any tan you managed to get. For me this year the holiday has left a different impression as we did a house swap. Exchanging homes with people you don’t know involves a...

Making it personal

I was chuckling about a new Feng Shui bicycle (apparently its a thing!) and it made me think that, while calling this Feng Shui is a bit of a stretch, some of the key principles involved in the process of changing the energy of a space can relate directly other...

Social Media – Keeping you up to date

Improve your Chance of Happily Ever After

I’ve been having some vicarious fun recently watching various friends’ online dating escapades. (You know who you are – thanks for keeping me entertained!) And it made me realise how amazing it is that anyone ever meets their partner on line. I know looks are key in...
