It’s time for another edition of the Embrace Happy Happy Mail Programme to start bringing sunshine through your postbox! Can you believe it’s nearly March?! That’s what happens when February shorts us 2 or 3 days! As March begins this Sunday, it’s time to…

Just over a year ago I began challenging myself to find three good things to celebrate at the end of each day. Inspired by an email which my Dad shared with me, I thought I would give it a go. The challenge was simply, at the end of each day, look back…

The end of February is nearly upon us. This has been a hard week for me. I have a feeling that everyone thinks that because I run Embrace Happy, that my life is all sunshine and light. It most certainly is not but what I do is CHOOSE to focus on what…

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of travelling via Eurostar to Paris for the day. Yes, I know, glamorous me right? Well, the purpose of my visit was not to go macaroon shopping or be dressed by haute couture designers! No, the purpose of my visit was to…
