I attended my first auction yesterday. Being an advocate for second hand and buying old rather than new, this may come as a surprise. It was to me too if I’m honest. I may have been to a few when I was younger, but since knowing what I like and how I’d like to furnish...Read More
I spoke at a conference in Prague a few weeks ago on the topic of Women and their relationship to money and began with one of my favourite mantra’s: money talks and wealth whispers. The phrase generated quite a bit of discussion and it inspired me to launch the Semple Consultants opportunity – an initiative that has...Read More
I discovered a new blog the other day. It is penned by a financial journalist who decided to go a whole year without spending a penny, barring the necessities of course – food, mortgage etc., – but it got me thinking about our culture of consumerism. I’ve spoken before about the influence of materialism...Read More
There is no question that Jane Austen is rooted firmly in our hearts as one of the greatest novelists of all time – not ‘among the greatest living authors’ though you understand – following a somewhat unfortunate slip of the tongue by MP, Andrea Leadsom, as she spoke in Parliament last week following the unveiling...Read More

In reality, I could make a round trip to and back from...Read More
Every week I meet up with a bright young girl to discuss life, her life, mainly. We talk about all sorts of things; sometimes we go and get hot chocolates, other times we sit by a computer. My objective is to be there to support her, guide her and be an ear for anything she...Read More
Before I left England I was adamant that a day trip to Chiang Mai’s Tiger Kingdom was not something that would be on my agenda whist traveling. The draw of seeing a tiger up close and personal is one I could understand fully, but what I failed to fathom was how people could support these...Read More
It was only ever a matter of time before someone combined the power of social media with a girl’s favourite hobby? The 10th March sees the launch of new website, Shopa.Com, where shopping is about to get social. Shopa is the brainchild of Peter Janes and was founded in 2012. Following a successful career launching...Read More
It has been said on more than one occasion that I shop, a lot. Rarely does a day go by without one parcel or another getting delivered, to the point where I actually managed to break my own letterbox through such brutal overuse. My fervent shopping addiction has even become an ongoing joke around the...Read More
