About Me


I am a thirty-something lifestyle blogger, mother of five, wife to one, master of none, lover of infinite amounts of wine & coffee, art and DIY. My children are aged 0, 3, 5, 7 and 11. I am a Pro at pretending to be a parenting Pro winging it every single day. In my writing I try to take an honest, no-holds-barred approach to parenting blogging fuelled by infinite amounts of wine and coffee. Forget the sugar coating. I’ll let you in on the magic of the life of a full-time mother raising 4 children. If you’re looking for an opinion, I probably have one 🙂


Recently having gone through a career transition from Customer Service Manager in a multinational company to family manager, I am looking for a new sense of presence, possibility and creativity. Venting, ranting and chanting is my therapy while trying to see the fun in it all.

I am the “Queen of my Castle” riding the waves of parenting. I write about stuff that stirs my motherly soul while trying to survive life that’s never boring (or relaxing for that matter) with 4 kids running circles around me.

Embrace yourself for tales of toddlers, tantrums & triumphs as well as parenting joys and parenting fails. Amidst all of that, I hope to give a bit of DIY inspo.


To date I have written posts for


the Maternity & Infant Magazine Spring Edition 2016



This post was published as part of a collection of essays by June Desiree in her book To and From: Mother – A Tribute to Motherhood. The eBook is available on Amazon.

I write a monthly column for  Meet Other Mums, who I am very proud to blog for as part of their blog squad! Please check out their site!

I am also an independent contributor for the Huffington Post and HuffPostParentsUK.  Do stop by!

Queen of my Castle is a PR friendly blog and I am interested in collaborating with brands that fit in with my blog’s theme and happy to review products.
Have a little look around my blog and connect with me on Facebook.

And do stick around for more!
