I’m a mama and magazine writer on a mission to help busy mamas find their glowing, ‘real life’ fabulous – with a little lifestyle, homes and family news on the side!
Every day, Mon – Sat, I share those beauty tips and tricks that truly make a difference, the latest trends that work off the runway and in real life (and on the school run!), the skincare short cuts to help you glow (no matter how little sleep you got!) and those gorgeous body treats that will leave you feeling like you sneaked off for a spa break (even for just a few minutes in the shower, accompanied by squirty bath toys).
It’s totally ‘real’ around here and all about us mamas finding our fabulous (even if it means our roots go a little longer between touch-ups – see photo *ahem*!) and feeling our healthy best at every age and stage of the journey (I’m now in my Forties, and have given up trying to fight against the frizz that never was quite ‘beauty editor-smooth’. Hey ho).
There are plenty of health and fitness tips here, too, along with the latest product picks, beauty tips and interviews with top health and beauty experts.
I’d love you to feel uplifted, encouraged and inspired every time you visit – and to take away a great tip or two!!
I hope you’ll love it here!!
The professional stuff …
I’ve written on beauty, health and fitness for a range of British magazines and newspapers and for a range of online lifestyle destinations.
I’ve been a regular contributor to publications including the Telegraph (where I wrote regularly on beauty for several years and interviewed the likes of Penelope Cruz about their beauty habits); The Saturday Telegraph Magazine; The Daily Mail; ELLE; Marie Claire; Health & Fitness; Boots Health & Beauty; Harvey Nichols Magazine; Sainsbury’s Magazine; Heathrow Traveller and The London Magazine.
I write regularly on beauty for Baby London magazine and am thrilled to have been a featured beauty expert for publications including Tesco Magazine (for the first Tesco Your Beauty Awards) and for websites including Boden (writing on beauty for the ‘Behind The Seams’ blog), The Beauty Shortlist (featured expert for Green Beauty Week 2013) and Morrison’s Magazine (October 2013, featured as beauty expert with Nichola Joss and Daniel Galvin Jr.), amongst others.

And finally …
Nonstopmama is dedicated to all mamas, including my own (left), who, through the miracle of adoption, gave me the gift of my family, being my beloved mama and is nothing short of beautiful and amazing.
And to Anne, the wonderful, truly amazing mama who gave me life, loved me dearly and wished for all my dreams to come true – having the privilege of knowing her was one of them – and the incredible extended family whom I have the privilege and joy of learning more about all the time. They have been so very gracious (and now I understand where the crazy hair and olive skin which looks peeky without fake tan or bronzer come from – thank you, Italian side of la famiglia! Plus, the borderline obsessive-but-not-very-great-at-it homemaking and cleaning stuff. From both sides, actually. There was no hope).
I am full of admiration for all mamas who love and care for the children under their wings – in every different form that takes – and I’m in the process of writing a book about my story (so no haircare or makeup tips in there, but if it’s an area you’re interested in, I totally recommend Instant Mom by Nia Vardolos. Funny, poignant and precious).
Thanks SO much for being here, and part of the fun! XX
