Round The Kitchen Table with Anna Parker-Naples
I get round the "virtual" kitchen table with Anna Parker-Naples who is a a woman on a mission.  Her book "Get Visible" has just been released and within 24 hours the audiobook version has become a bestseller! It is now in the Top 100 Amazon Best Sellers. She has a huge amount of life experience, which includes being told that she can no longer walk.  She came back from that illness and has built a successful business, that helps entrepreneurs to become visible!  We talk about the kind of mindset you need to overcome such a difficult challenge in her life, along with having 3 small children.  She is inspiring but wonderfully "normal" (or as normal as any of us!). She comes to us from her airing cupboard which definately different! If you want to connect with Anna and learn more from her click the link :

Round The Kitchen Table Make Up Masterclass
Kirsty and I venture off to a Smokey Eye Make Up Masterclass with Leanne Perilly and Justine Warwick at Downham Hall, Essex.  It was a great day with lots of tips and advice on how to get the look - daytime and evening.  We don't wear masses of make up as a rule so this is new territory for us.  But we embraced it with full gusto - the brushes, the pallettes & the primer!  There are a few game changing moments so listen in to see if you can pick up a few ways to look your best! Bear with my croaky voice - we start actually at the class and then later in the episode Kirsty and I discuss the results plus alot more.
