Well Hello Girl’s,
Here we are in April. On the cusp of Summertime. Long evenings have arrived and brighter mornings are upon us. It certainly does give me that extra spring in my step, not that I need it some of you might say lol. Genuinely though I do love the longer evenings and summer time in general. I think I am just wired like that to be honest with you. It is so hard to believe I am sitting here writing the April newsletter, the year is really flying by for sure.
We have a late Easter this year so another sneaky four day weekend that none of us will say no to. I have no major plans yet but that could all change. My main aim will be to eat chocolate and believe me I am good at that.. really good. It is lovely though to have the extended breaks to look forward to isn’t it?
March was a great month. I have to say I really enjoyed the long Bank Holiday weekend. We all deserved it to be fair though. It has been a long two years on us all so it was nice to be able to kick back and relax. I decided this year to take my weekends off and spend a little bit more time with my family and I have to be honest I am enjoying it. I love my job(both of them) but at times it can be hard to find a balance. I know as Mothers. Wives, partners, jobs and general life it can be so hard on us all to spend a little time on ourselves. We all tend to put everybody else ahead of ourselves, it’s a female thing for sure and I think we are all guilty of it? Even this month girls try and take even thirty minutes a day to concentrate on you. Sit down, have a cup of tea or go out for a walk with your music. I guarantee you, you will feel the better of it. Wellness lessons from Lisa, who would have thought lol…
‘Fashion was so strong in March. That’s another reason I love the Summer, the new fashion lands with all the bright colours. April is also bursting with colour and style.’
Well my HRT journey has certainly had a huge reaction from so many people who follow my page. I will be honest I was a little nervous to start with and almost reluctant to be completely honest. It was after meeting Oonagh O’Hagan who is the ultimate healthcare professional as many of you know. We had a great chat and she just basically told me that you don’t have to suffer in silence. There are so many options to suit all and she arranged a consultation for me with Dr. Sonia Bobart. Well even before I started any HRT I actually felt better. Dr. Sonia really listened to me, got it, and got me. She had arranged a monogram and a full MOT. I am definitely feeling better and will keep you all posted on how it is progressing as the months go by. That is the great thing about my platform. We can help each other with the trials and tribulation that are thrown at us at times girls. It’s a great safe community that we have established here for sure and I’m so grateful for it.
Finally,it was so brilliant to have my live shows back. The atmosphere in The Knightsbrook in Trim was electric on Saturday night. The style was incredible and the ladies pulled out all the stops. Huge thank you to all my brands who support the shows and I cannot wait for Limerick & Cork. Tickets go on sale this Sunday April 3rd. I have no further shows planned for this year. We are just so busy that I cannot commit. Hopefully though I will see some of you in April & May x
Well that is about all the news I have for this month. Here is hoping for a great great April and that we will have lots to chat about throughout the weeks.
Thanks as always,
What’s New for April?
Great to have Derek back with me this month. It’s a year now since Derek started with me on the site and each month he continues to bring fresh and new ideas. The table runners and napkins literally flew out the door in March. He has a brand new product for April and I am looking forward to showing you once he is ready. Thanks so much as always Derek xx
