Where has all the play gone?

Remember the days when finding a four leaf clover left you feeling on top of the world? When the act of blowing a dandelion sent a rush of excitement through your body? Remember when a forest could be fairyland, some sticks could build a castle, a pond could be the wild seas you sail your…

When I grow up I want to be a Disney Princess…?

Hands up if at one point in your life you wanted to grow up and be a Disney princess? It might have been the huge castles they lived in, or the beautiful dresses, or the handsome prince falling in love with them, or being saved and living happily ever after? For me it was their…

Our little friend the comfort zone

My Philosophy

As the name suggests, I believe we can unite to shine. I believe by working together we can create beautiful change. All people are equal. Do you have a heart inside your body? You’re human.
