A fabulous frock for fundraising

The challenge of a fabulous frockathon

We did it! Today is the last day of October which means I am wearing my final frock for FROCKTOBER! If I lived in a warmer climate, I’m certain this frockathon would have been easier. I’d simply be able to slip on a dress each day and voila! Dressed up! There would be no cardigans [...] Read More

The last week of Frocktober

I love dressing up but I don’t follow fashion trends. If you asked me what’s happening on the catwalks of Paris, I wouldn’t be able to tell you.

On my mind. Hope and holding on.

It’s an issue.” replied the political commentator live-blogging behind me. Here I was at a conference with over 5000 bloggers all wanting [...] Read More

New York, a SuperAwesomeMicroProject and the Fish Slap

What a week! I’m just pausing now to catch my breath and the thought just occurred to me… …if I never started using Twitter, I never would have started blogging and I would never have imagined that one day I would be working for a blogger – let alone be heading to a conference in [...] Read More
