Yes, I’m serious, but I’m still gonna marry the bastard. Not that I’m still annoyed about..

Fast Designs After a long, slow few months after Christmas, it’s getting to that time again where some of us might have a few ppf’s coming up, wether that’s a particular village fete you do every year or an exciting new event.

My Top 5 Products Ok, so I like to think I have a relatively minimal kit as it is but this is hard!

How to build a website and why you absolutely need one! As far as I am concerned you can’t be in any kind of business and not have a website, it is so important!

The Fear of the Bad Review Come on, this can’t just be me? Forgive me if this post is a little self-indulgent, but I’ve been reflecting on a couple of situations I have found myself in, and how my fear of that negative review has made me respond to those situations, and what I can take away from the whole process (one of which is ongoing) and hopefully I can help anyone else ..

Training Tried and Tested, a Review Practice makes perfect, it’s a well known fact. We learn through making mistakes, appraisal and creating muscle memory.
