Major News and #5frugalthings

Today – #5frugalthings

Oh, I have been just dying to tell you what I have been working on and today – at last,  I can!



First #5frugalthings from my week …then the big announcement

  1. I have not taken my kids out this half term for couple of reasons, we are off to Devin for a wedding this weekend which is fun enough! and they have hung out with friends and done very ordinary stuff like revise and watch Netflix and play tennis. It’s been low key, lovely and cheap!
  2. I did not buy a new outfit for said wedding jut a new top I will most definitely wear again
  3. I have been thinking about lots of things and decided I need to save more and have made myself a big financial goal for next summer and set up a direct debit. I need to up my graft and reduce my spends but I know I can
  4. I have been pizza-making on a budget tortillas passata and a little cheese 10 mins in the oven and pow. Add a little mushroom and pineapple and who needs a takeaway!
  5. Last but not least the reason I have spent so little lately is that I have been writing up a storm and my book, co-written with the very lovely Peny Alexander is soon to be published. Let me introduce you to …

Be Happy Be You

Be Happy Be You is a teenage guide to happiness and contains around 40 life lessons for teens looking at body image, confidence, healthy relationships, media literacy and so much more.

It is packed with science, insights and practical activities to help teens explore and put into practise skills to raise their emotional resilience and literacy and help them raise their levels of happiness and reduce levels of stress and anxiety.

I am so excited for you to see it. It’s been a real labour of love.

Our book will be published by Harper Collins on January 9th and would make a lovely, lovely Christmas gift for a teen (will only be a week or so  late!)

You can pre-order it now here:
