This page tells you what I am up to right now. It’s the cool brainchild of Derek Sivers. Thank you for the suggestion Derek! Check out for other inspiring Now pages!

I’m currently building up my Healthy, Wealthy and Wise blog, and it’s incredible how much I’m enjoying it. Finally my insane amounts of reading and consumption of information have an outlet!!!

Over the summer my business partner and I took the very tough decision to shutter our womenswear brand, Madderson London, and we have now closed the company. While I found running Madderson to be a creative dream come true in many ways, the practical and commercial challenges of the industry proved too much.

I am now writing a book, which is a new adventure for me but one that feels very much like coming home. The working title is “SELF MADE: 15 tools to create the person you want to be and the life you want to live.” The starting point is similar to this blog; the book is about waking up and consciously designing your life instead of living in reactivity and on autopilot.

I’m on a journey with functional medicine, in which I am a fervent believer. I’m hopeful and excited to see the good it will do for my health after decades of my normalising the low-grade, chronic, pesky health issues from which I have suffered.

To this end, I’m 5 months into a new dietary protocol with my functional doctor which aims to rebuild my gut, lower my inflammation levels and reverse what looked to be very early-stage auto-immune problems. It’s been a journey but I really believe I’m setting myself up for life. I have far more energy and mental clarity than I used to. The final step is to wean myself off my sugar addiction and finish cleaning up my gut.

We’re living in West London and my youngest child, my daughter Tilly, is just about to turn 7. I can’t believe it!
