Reality hit 2 years ago when the company I was working for went into liquidation and I was made redundant. It was a trying time but it was imperative I took time to reflect and think carefully about my next career move.
Being a single mother to two children, i was always passionate about teaching them the importance of becoming successful in their own right, through sheer hard work, determination and how rewarding it could be.
I always aspired to launch my own business and build it from the ground up but the question was what would it specialise in?

Even better to see the end result, set in various interiors from traditional to contemporary complimenting their decor.
I love what I do and would not change it for the world. There is so much more to be done and I hope that you'll join me, along for the journey.
