Living Like a Cavegirl

A Spartan

I have spent the last 12 weeks 'eating clean, lifting mean', in the style of our cavemen ancestors.

From Banking to BodyCombat

Les Mills BodyCombat

I used to work in banking, which at times was mentally tough. Now I'm exploring something physically tough. But at the end of the day, it's still all about throwing your weight around and winning the order / deal / fight (delete as applicable).

How to be a Pole Dancer

Pole Dancing School London

Times are moving swiftly. What was once deemed a socially taboo form of entertainment, indulged in only by the rich or the famous (or bankers), usually under the cover of darkness, is now mainstream family fun.

My New Tattoos

Tattoo Background Victor Vieira

I had a dream I was tattooed to the hilt. Specifically, I was sporting the sleeve tattoo equivalent on both my legs. (Could they be referred to as trouser leg tattoos?)

The Career Carousel

Carousel Silhouette Theresa Murphy

I am considering a change in career. Given I am currently in extended limbo since the abrupt end of my most recent career more than three years ago, this could seem long overdue.

Handbags at Dawn

Chanel Classic Flap Bag

In the bygone era of my banking days, I was once hailed as the Imelda Marcos of handbags.

Sleeping With the Elephant

Angel Dear Elephant

Some use alcohol as an emotional crutch; others use food; and more still use religion. As for my son, his crutch comes in the form of a decapitated elephant head attached to a scrap of, admittedly very tactile, blue fabric.

Crouching Tiger

Mother's Love Thad Zajdowicz

Oh how the media circus surrounding Amy Chua's book, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother (or more specifically, her child rearing philosophy) must be helping her Amazon stats.

Are We All Just Big Babies?

Today I hosted a play date for my 10-month-old and her pals - her diary is infinitely more diverse than mine these days. I’m not sure whether she learnt any new tricks (other than endorsing her status as queen bee of her own play mat) but what I learnt is that to covet is nature, not nurture.

Job Market Recovery or Dead Cat Bounce?

This week an email was followed by a text, which was then succeeded by a phone call, and then promptly followed by yet another text and another email. No - not a personal stalker, the preserve of the rich and famous, but the return of the head hunter.
