The world is a stage

The world is a stage and we are always on it!  In show business, one of the biggest tips I would give to a  new comer is that you are always on stage even when you are off. The way that you interact with your audience, your clients, the way you speak to them on the…

World Wellbeing Week

So here’s a subject I’m growing to love: wellbeing, I’m literally falling in love with it and never knew anything about it until recently.  Wellbeing is becoming a very popular and talked about subject of late.  What is well being?  It covers a multitude  of aspects in our lives actually, but in general it  is to be…

Bring a child to work day

Ok so, it wasn’t exactly work as it was a family occasion that I was asked to just get up and sing at, rather than a corporate event, private party or such like.   The difference being: this is my work as a professional singer and, although my children, ages 2 & 3, have never…

This Father’s Day…

So I am privileged to have the best father in my life. A hard working, moralistic, loyal, steady, kind, generous, loud, family man, talented musician, thorough bred Irish man with Irish values, who adores my family & our mother still to this day. Growing up around this, alongside his ‘big bark’ but a soft heart,…

National best friends day!

So today is national best friends day! A day I would love to celebrate with my friends! The truth is, I don’t see much of them nowadays . Having children changes all of that and you have to MAKE time for it, for them, before you hit burnout.  So last week, I totally crashed out….

Just Be You

This is a subject that I think relates so powerfully to me, both personally and professionally.  I am me, I can only ever be me. Lucky for me that’s how I’m made; I cannot be somebody else because I’m just me; as you are you.  What I mean though is, I’ve tried to be somebody…

It’s Mental Health Awareness Week

A topic I find so frowned upon by many people, yet not verbalised in that way; more just a feeling and emotion or a thought. A thought that you know people are thinking that of other people described to have mental health issues.  I have spoken about this before, having a close member of the…

Where would be without our kids?

‘Where would I be without my kids?’ asks every mother, I’m sure. All I know, is that they gave me a sense of purpose; a sense of purpose personally and professionally. Professionally, they have given me a ‘why’; a why I do what I do for them, instead of just for me plodding along with…

Maternal Mental Health

This is a topic I know very little about, as a mother who hasn’t had it. Though, as a sister of a mother who has, I know a little.  All I can say is that our two lives during and after pregnancy couldn’t be more opposite.  I had a great pregnancy with both of my…

It’s Europe day

Where is the best place to be in Europe, which is the best city? Let’s face it, we live in an incredible world with amazing countries and cities and everyone’s favourite is down to personal opinion. I don’t particularly love travelling, though my Cancer star sign tells you otherwise. I am not a big fan…
