Welcome, I mean it, welcome. Browse, read, comment and feel free to say hi.

Hi, I’m Claire, a Yorkshire born girl who left Bradford for the dizzy heights of Nottingham. I studied there, fell in love and got married there and made some of the best friends a girl could wish for there.

But life took me to Kuala Lumpur. Ben, my husband, was offered an opportunity too good to pass up, so we packed up and flew to the other side of the world for 18 months. 

My life has been varied to date, doing many jobs. I’ve sold a variety of goods through different businesses, served tables, managed pubs and shops, worked in call centres, been a secondary school teacher and worked as a children’s entertainer, the last two aren’t linked, although some days it felt like they were!

I now work with brands and businesses to help them grow online over at moxieva.co.uk.I have spent years working with SEO and Pinterest, growing a variety of business, helping them find website traffic and their ideal customer.  I offer mentoring, course and monthly services, so businesses can find the right approach for them.

I created my first blog nearly 10 years ago to document my work and making processes whilst at university. Fondly writing musings about life and documenting recipes, on various blogs ever since. I now focus on travel, blogging about my trips, the food I’ve eaten, the books I’ve read, and observations of the world around me. I am also more than a little obsessed with skincare, being a woman in her thirties how can you not be!
