EDWARDSsarahCHAT (Small)I love this story because it makes me smile the moment I look at those beautiful pictures. Sarah was told she’d never be able to have children, but as you can see from the three gorgeous children laughing and cuddling in the pictures, they didn’t get the prognosis quite right! Amazingly, the first child Sarah had somehow solved her fertility problems and made way for a little brother and sister.

On top of those three little miracle, it’s also the story of Ethan, the youngest child, who has Down’s syndrome. I’m proud of how many positive, life affirming stories I’ve been involved with for the Down’s syndrome community (just see my previous posts!) and this is the latest in a long line of stories that make me love my job.

You can read this story in this week’s Chat magazine.

WOdrinkers (Small)This story was published in the New Year and I’m only just getting it up on the site, despite being very proud of it. As a seasoned non-drinker myself these days, I loved celebrating these women, all of whom quit drinking only to see their lives blossom.

The average Brit spends A YEAR of their life hungover, when you add up every headache and fry-up. Pretty crazy, huh! But there is a growing trend for leaving binge drinking in the past and instead embracing more fulfilling and meaningful ambitions and pastimes. Katie stopped binge drinking, and therefore late night pizza marathons, and lost 9st. Heloise switched the late night parties for rock climbing, knitting and walks on the beach. And Karen decided to ensure she never missed another day’s work thanks to a hangover. After she quit the booze, she got a promotion and her career has been thriving ever since.

A little inspiration for all the party animals out there – drinking is fun, but not drinking is even better!

The story appeared in Woman’s Own. If you have a story about how and why you gave up drinking, please get in touch with me today. Thank you.

Essentials.Hayley.jpegWe have an amazing story in this month’s Essentials magazine. Our client Hayley tells her story of overcoming anxiety and panic attacks through blogging and sharing the truth of her troubles with her readers. Hayley has come so far that she was able to travel to London for Essential’s photoshoot, something that would have been unheard of just a few years ago. Now a super mum and a superblogger, you can read more about everything Hayley has overcome on her own blog, Sparkles and Stretchmarks.

The story is out in Essentials now.

You can read more about Hayley below.  Read more
