Woman in Progress: Agi Lebiedz, Hush Pictures

We have a bit of a thing for photographers and today we have the pleasure of interviewing Agi from Hush Pictures.  She has an eye for highlighting the beautiful in the everyday and manages to capture those moments to be treasured forever.  We are excited to talk to her about how she came to do what she loves and her advice for other women who, like her, are living a little differently to their original plans.  Thank you Agi for sharing your story.  Do take a look at her website, her photos are lovely!

Woman in Progress: Caroline Arthur, bridal design

With a Royal marriage later this year we thought we'd get in early and interview a bridal designer.  Our latest Woman in Progress is Caroline Arthur, couture designer, who launched a successful business by teaming her creative talents and eye for the beautiful with what many women anticipate as the best day of their lives.  If I had a wedding to plan Caroline would be on my list of people to meet!  Thank you for taking time to answer our questions and for the insight into your life.  Photo: Gabriella Norton

Slipping through my fingers all the time: my youngest is starting school soon

It’s just three months until my youngest starts school.  And only two weeks until her brothers are off on their school holidays.  At this point, the current set up, of Thursdays and Fridays being ‘just us’ will stop.  Forever.  One element which definitely exacerbates this whole sense of an emptier nest is the fact that I’m also not sure what I’ll do with my extra time once she is in school.  Having recently closed my business, I’m not sure really what I’m should do with myself.   What do I do?
