Get Ready To Frocktober


September is already here and that means that I’m planning my Frocktober! For the month of October I’ll be wearing a frock of some sort each day and sharing on my social media what I wear. Why you ask? Well it’s to raise money to support the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation as Ovarian cancer is […]

Photo Shoot for the New Me

Behind the Scenes with Neil Creek

Given that I’ve changed many things about myself, and my clients need to be able to recognize me when they’ve never met me, but we’re meeting for a personal shopping expedition in a public place, I decided it was time to invest in some new professional photos. I chose to use photographer Neil Creek again […]

Breast Reduction Update – 6 Weeks Post Surgery

6 Weeks post breast reduction

Hard to believe but I’m now 6 weeks post my reduction, and I’ve forgotten what it felt like to have larger breasts (my shoulders and back do still feel like there is less strain on them than there used to be). I’m now allowed to go back to higher impact exercise (though I haven’t run […]

So Long and Thanks for the Mammaries


I’m writing this sitting in my hospital bed, the night after my breast reduction surgery. I’m still mentally coming to terms with what I’ve done, after a lifetime of overly large breasts and in many ways my breasts have defined part of who I am (just as I was a brunette and am now a […]

I […]

My Style Philosophy – Rules are Made to Be Broken

Losing Weight and Gaining Health

Weight loss

Some of you have started to notice and comment that I’ve lost weight. It’s interesting that nobody noticed the difference in my appearance until I’d shed around 10kg (22lb). Last October I realised that my weight had been creeping up for 3 years, and given my middle age, being the weight I was when I […]
