Please explain your lifestyle and philosophy
I try to live a cruelty free, chemical free (almost impossible but I try!) and more natural way of life as possible. I believe living a life as close to nature as physically and practically possible means that we are as healthy as we can be whilst always striving for that next level. Being a role model, having integrity and gently educating the people around us is the only way the world is going to change. My aim is to leave a better world for my children to live in. Our kids are the ones who are going to change the world
Do you work-from-home or are you a stay at home parent? Please tell us about it.
I’m a SAHM, I used to be a community midwife but the hours just didn’t fit in with my lifestyle so I have put my career on hold. Currently making and selling my own remineralising toothpaste and facial oils, it’s very early days though!
How do you make things work?
By having faith and believing that the universe only wants good things to happen to you
What inspired your lifestyle?
My BFF who has recently emigrated to Australia, she lives pretty much the way I do. She showed me the right way to live, before I met her I lived a life that was false and had no real meaning.
What are your child/ children’s education options?
My daughter works as a beauty therapist and my son has just started Montessori but I will homeschooling him.
If you work from home what is the best bit of advice you could give other parents who want to work from home?
I’m just starting on this road, so far I’ve realised that I can’t do much work with a toddler around!
What is your favourite family activity?
Swimming, it’s cheap and my son loves it
What has been your biggest family adventure so far?
Upping sticks and moving away from family to live down south where I believe there are more opportunities
What are you most grateful for (as a family or individually)?
That we all have our health and that I have woken up and taken my rose tinted glasses off!
