Have you heard of a well-being lifestyle blog before? Well, this is one of them.
Living.Pretty.Happy features lifestyle related content but from a perspective that keeps your well-being at its heart.
In fact, my purpose (& therefore my blog’s mission) is to enlighten, encourage, aid & empower you to live your happiest life possible.
I mean, we only get one of them don’t we?
Here’s a little bit about me…
I’m a well-being advocate, writer & soon-to-be coach-in-training (particularly excited about that one) with nearly 39-years of life under my belt. In my spare time, I’m also a mum & wife… just kidding, what spare time?
In all seriousness, I live a good life with my wonderful family. That’s not a boast, it’s just my perception of the life I am grateful to lead. It wasn’t always this way. I’ve racked up my fair share of dramas & traumas. They really took their toll on me and at times I nearly hit the exit button. Thankfully, I managed to turn my life around.
I can pinpoint exactly when it happened, when something began to shift in me. It was Oprah (it’s always Oprah isn’t it?) Through watching one particular episode of Oprah, I learned about positive mindset. Not the type of positive mindset where you visualise winning the lottery and then it actually happens – although that would be nice. Or the type of positivity that won’t acknowledge that some days are just crap – because they can be can’t they? But more the mindset that we actually have a choice, that we can be optimistic, that we can cultivate a life we actually love. All just by taking positive action and adjusting our mindset.
I’m from a corporate background and a few years ago I realised that what I was doing was making me miserable. There was a big disconnect – it wasn’t who I was meant to be and it certainly wasn’t what I was meant to be doing. That’s when I entered my soul-searching phase (formerly referred to as my mid-thirties crisis). I didn’t realise it at the time, but that was when I started to discover my purpose.
And a blog was born…
Living.Pretty.Happy launched in 2018. My blog was (still is) a platform for me to indulge my love of writing, whilst also providing a space to explore what I felt I had to offer. Over time, it became apparent I was most connected to one area in particular, an area that best represents my mindset & how I live my life – well-being.
I truly believe that working on your well-being – making it a priority; learning about who you are and what you need; then taking positive action to meet those wants & needs is the answer to leading your most fulfilled life.
Believe me, it works. And that’s why I share it with you.
An award-nominated blog, Living.Pretty.Happy was a finalist in the Lifestyle Category of the UK Blog Awards 2019. It was shortlisted top 8 out of 400 entrants.

What can I offer you?
I am a student of well-being – constantly learning, trying, evolving. Our little corner of the internet is a safe & welcoming space. There’s no judgement here, just encouragement & the odd friendly motivational kick-up-the-butt when required.
Every post published, in every category I cover – is well-researched and has to pass the Is this helpful? test. If I don’t think it’s helpful, I won’t publish it. That’s my commitment to you.
There is one small requirement from you though… to experience the turnaround I have, I’ve had to take responsibility & ownership of my life. I encourage you to do the same. I appreciate that may sound scary (been there worn the apprehensive t-shirt) but, trust me, it’s also empowering – you are putting yourself in charge of making it happen!
So let’s make it happen together!
All you need to do right now is enter your email in the Stay Happy box – that’s all! You’ll receive every new post as soon as it’s published – helping you stay up-to-date & connected.
