I was still hungry in the taxi, upset about the mozzarella, worried that what would come next wouldn’t measure up...


You Need A Vicky – Start With Your Sock Drawer

The GORGEOUS Vicky Silverthorn is my sister’s business partner (You Need A PA) and has written the most fabulous book on how to stay organised in your home. Vicky is a professional ‘de-clutterer’ who helps Clients sort their lives and homes out so that they can have a more stress free and uncluttered life. I’m not sure about you, but I can be hugely unorganised and messy, especially when I am in a bad state, and seeing all my mess makes me more stressed and anxious. Vicky will take you through the steps of how to organise your home, starting with, you guessed it, your sock drawer. Give it a read and start enjoying a more organised and relaxed life. You can buy her book on Amazon, WHSmiths, Waterstones… most book shops around the world!


This Works

When I was in a pretty bad way and sleep was just not happening and I was over stressed and anxious my mum started buying me some dreamy products to help me out. The amazing This Works have various different natural skin care products that are designed to help repair your body using vitamins, natural antioxidents and plant oils. I have most of their Deep Sleep and Stress products which include pillow sprays, pressure point oils and bath salts as well as their In Transit First Air oil which is amazing to have in the kitchen as I’m constantly burning myself or accidentally cutting myself. I can honestly say, these products are amazing and have really helped me in my recovery as sleep (or lack of) can be a huge trigger for my depression and I really do have better nights sleep when I use these products. You can buy them here and I spotted them being sold in Fortnum and Mason the other day too. Give them a try, they might work for you too.



You Need A PA

You know when you have those days when your bed is your best friend and your unopened post is sat next to you piling up and you just KNOW that they are all unpaid bills but you just can’t face opening them? Or you have a big birthday coming up and the thought of trying to organise a party just makes your anxiety go soaring? Well, why don’t you give Polly at You Need A PA a call and she can sort all of that for you plus more. She can be your PA for that day or half a day, or she can be your regular PA – whatever suits your needs. You Need A PA is a pay-as-you-go service that Polly offers and she is just the BOMB (I have to say that, she’s my sister!). As I know too well, when you have all these things building up that you need to organise it can really send your mental state in to a spin so let Polly sort it all for you, she can come to your house and sort everything so you don’t have to move anywhere. Her website can be found here with all of her contact details, testimonials etc. As she is my sister, she has a great understanding of what it can be like dealing with depression and she is very understanding, gentle and a joy to have in your house.
