Kirsty is one inspirational powerhouse – just look at her transformation! Now, she’s challenging herself to conquer the pull-up and she runs a Friday night running club, building a community of like-minded running fans. If you’ve set yourself a resolution to get into shape in 2020, read Kirsty’s story!

Out now in Top Sante.

This is the inspirational story of photographer Jo-Anne, who travels the world to find women rescuing animals. What a beautiful project she has undertaken, shining a light on some of the most altruistic, hard-working women working on the front line of animal rescue. I love her!

It was an honour to write about Jo – you can see more of her work by following Unbound.

Happy New Year! Here’s a glorious story to start the year off with a smile. These beautiful children all have Down’s syndrome and their parents shared their stories in Take a Break to remind the world Down’s syndrome is not a curse or a condition that needs eradicating. It’s a super power!

Out now in the Take a Break January special.

Hello cutie! Here’s little Neave to touch your heart this Christmas! She gave her family a surprise last year but she’s doing great now and this year promises to be a bit less dramatic for the Baldwin family.

A lovely story celebrating Down’s syndrome and the joy it brings. Out now in Bella.

The gorgeous and oh so stylish Suzi, 69, shares her top tips for a stylish wardrobe on every budget, in this week’s My Weekly magazine.

I loved writing about Suzi. Her personality was as colourful as her outfits and she was such fun. She made me look at my go-to outfit of jeans and a top with raised eyebrows! Perhaps it is time to branch out…

Check out Suzi in My Weekly now, or follow her on Instagram here.

I absolutely loved working with Kristina on this feature. She had an idea to create an advent calendar with a charity twist – behind every door is a 50p contribution to a charity. The premise supports 24 incredible charities, all carefully selected by Kristina and covering good causes in various areas, from children in need to animals in need and everything in between. It is such a lovely idea and this year, she’s already reached £150k raised.

What an achievement – the calendars are stocked on Advent Of Change and also in John Lewis and Waitrose. So much better than chocolate!

You can read Kristina’s feature in Notebook here.

Love, love, LOVE this story! Absolutely love writing about women who have been on a journey to find peace with themselves. Women who have self-confidence, self-acceptance and happiness, much deserved. These are the kind of stories I want to read when I open a magazine and it is my great honour to help make them happen! Read all about Rachel, Nadine and Zoe in the new issue of Woman’s Own, out now.

If only there were just tantrums… poor Grace was dismissed by GPs as going through a ‘tantrum phase’. Sadly, what her change of behaviour actually revealed was the utterly devastating Batten’s disease. Mum Izabela shares her story in Bella magazine this week. It’s heartbreaking, but if her drug trial starts soon they hope to ward off and delay the onset of the debilitating symptoms.

For more about Batten’s visit the BDFA 

Another great resource is the website owned and run by the Rich family – The Nicole and Jessica Rich Foundation

I have written about the Rich family before and they are incredible. For support and information if you have just entered the Batten’s world, Gail is a fountain of knowledge.

Izabela’s story is out in Bella now.

What happened to Natalie is unfathomable. You may have read about her in the papers back on that fateful day and in the weeks and months that followed. We were a nation unable to believe her own partner, the father of her unborn child, could have done what he did.
But, he did. And that’s something Natalie had to come to terms with and move on from. In her incredible book, Still Standing, she goes into more detail about the relationship, the attack and what happened next. It’s written with raw honesty and I highly recommend it.

Natalie is a powerhouse – since recovering from her injuries she has become something of a Wonder Woman, taking part in all sorts of challenges and adventures to raise money for the Midland Air Ambulance.

Here she is in Closer magazine, out today.

For Annette, Sheila and Gemini, dance is life! It was wonderful to write about three women who have found happiness through their dancing shoes. With the new series of Strictly hitting screens this week, what a perfect time to celebrate these gorgeous women.
