Keep Warm With FAMARA

I was so pleased with my FAMARA Fingerless Gloves. They arrived in a lovely gift box and I couldn’t wait to road test them.

The softest blend of yarns (cashmere & Merino) come in beautiful colours, and can be worn as a glove or a wrist-warmer.

At FAMARA the girls keep them on all day, allowing fingers to be at the ready for work. I wore mine for shopping and had no problems of them slipping up or losing shape.

The girls at FAMARA  tell us that during the winter, it is just as important to keep your wrists warm as it is your head. Large arteries run close to the wrist and keeping them warm in winter, (or cool in the summer) helps regulate the rest of your body temperature. I was worried my fingers would get really cold but they actually didn’t .










FAMARA fingerless gloves are available in a selection of beautiful shades.










With the softest wool blend, the gloves are light weight and snug as a bug.

Will make gorgeous presents but make sure you keep a pair for yourself










The gloves came packaged in a beautiful FAMARA gift box with a Star faux suede wrist band.









This is a stunning gift for anyone to open, the softest Cashmere and Merino Wool gloves, packaged in a slimline matt grey box making for a very elegant gift.

It was important to FAMARA that their gloves were extremely soft, snug fitting and durable. When they found these, were delighted and put them to the test. They’ve definitely got durability, but best of all they keep their shape no matter how often you wear them. The merino content keeps them from pilling straight away, although you can expect some pilling after a couple of weeks.











The Wristbands are a luxurious, faux suede with a velvet-like feel, this realistic, vegetarian alternative to genuine suede. The suede is extremely soft and flexible but at the same time strong and durable and tied into a sliding knot, ready to wrap around your wrist, your ankle or to wear as a necklace.The Charms are a lead free, nickel free and cadmium free zinc alloy.

Bridget Jones

150 local ladies, and a few brave men including X Factors Marcus Collins, took to the red carpet  at the Odeon Cinema Liverpool One for the eagerly awaited  Bridget Jones’s Baby on Friday  at a charity screening lunch in aid of Radio  City’s Cash for Kids.


The event, hosted by Radio City’s Claire Simmo saw Bridgette’s loyal fans tread the red carpet premiere screening at the Odeon Cinema in Liverpool One, where guests were treated to a drink on arrival and a  bag of popcorn before taking their seats to be the first in the region to see the movie.



After the movie guests made their way to the Hilton Hotel, Liverpool One,  where guests were welcomed with an arrival drink before enjoying a three course lunch with entertainment from Victoria Sharpe, who performed a rousing rendition of ‘All by myself’ from the original soundtrack.   Guests then made their way through to the PIMA Bar, where they ‘wet the baby’s head’ with the help DJ to keep the party going in the Hilton’s PIMA Bar.



The event was, organised by Carolyn Hughes, CHPR, in association with Radio City’s Cash for Kids and supported by Barclays ,and Carolyn Hughes said “We feel that we have been with Bridgette throughout her life, so it seemed only right that we should all be here to support her at this stage of her life as well.  She might have grown up a little and become a parent, but her charm and vulnerability is still there, along with the humour.  It is a great way to watch the movie and raise much-needed funds for Radio City’s Cash for Kids”.

CONFIDENCE that will never leave YOU!

Big thank you to our guest blogger Jonita Dsouza


Jonita is an intuitive coach working for elevated female consciousness. She works with women to help them balance their masculine and feminine energies in order to live a purpose-driven life and also give back to the society.

There are plenty of articles and advice online talking about what to do to become confident. I am not here for that. I am here to tell you that this one bold act can make you feel confident in the way you live your life, make life’s decisions and even present yourself to the people around you. This is also one of the vital feminine principles that I assist women with in my business – Exploring Femininity .

Self doubt and self sabotage are the key reasons that can make you feel under confident. Think about it and be honest with yourself.. what do you feel is making you believe that you are not confident?

How can you change this belief pattern?

By taking the bold act of trusting yourself! Yes, you heard me right!! SELF-TRUST is the secret to achieving the level of confidence that will never leave you!

Compare the outcomes of those decisions and choices that you’ve made in your lives when you doubted yourself, listened to others’ opinion and ignored your gut feelings or let fear and your emotions confuse you. In the end you didn’t feel good anyways, isn’t it!

This is very important for women entrepreneurs like us! As we grow our business, there will always be several opportunities for us that will stretch us beyond our comfort zones. These are the moments when fear, self-doubt and under confidence can kick in and I want to rest assure you that it is pretty natural.

This is the reason that we should learn to intentionally practice building our SELF-TRUST muscle like any other business or life skill.

By not trusting ourselves we can foster unnecessary sufferings and wasted time.

When we begin to trust ourselves, we begin to feel more confident in making life’s decisions and even putting our self out there in the unknown. Things can still be tough, rough and challenging; however, at least we will not regret taking the risk. If you have taken the leap of faith in starting your own business then I am sure you know what I mean!

Although building this SELF-TRUST muscle is a constant practice, here are my 3 simple steps to begin with –

  1. ACCEPT that you feel under confident. Make a list of things that make you feel under confident.
  2. FORGIVE yourself! You always do the best that you can at any given moment even if it ends up in a mess. So forgive yourself for being harsh on yourself. I like to repeat the Hawaiian Ho’oponono Prayer.
  3. AFFIRM – always remind yourself of the self-trust that you are building in yourself. Keep your thoughts compassionate towards yourself. Afterall our thoughts creates our reality. I like using the below Feminine Womantra.

Let me leave you with my 2 personal secrets that allows me to feel confident in a given situation –

  1. I always tune in to my gut feelings every time I am in a confidence crossroads and not what my thoughts and beliefs are trying to persuade me with.
  2. I choose Love over Fear. Fear will always exist but when we invite Love in our hearts, the natural state of confidence automatically seeps in.

In closing I would like to say that you already have in you what you are longing for. You just have to start trusting yourself and you will reach this level of confidence that will never leave you.
