New Chapter



You are under no obligation to be the same person you were a year, month, or even 15 minutes ago. You have the right to grow. No apologies.

I am not the same person I was this time last year. 
Literally. 
On this day last year, I felt like my world had fallen apart, the carpet well and truly pulled from underneath me. 

Anyone that knows me well will know that all that I ever wanted in life was a family. 
Growing up, it's all I dreamt of. And every decision I ever made was with my family in mind. 
So on this day last year, when I found out that my partner had been having a year-long affair, I was numb. 

How was I going to carry on?
My life is over.
How am I going to manage on my own?
I can't do this. 
What about my 2 children?
How can I afford the house & bills?
I'm alone. 

It was a pretty shitty time, I'll be honest. And I struggled for the first few months. I was also treated unfairly in my job & ended up leaving. So here I was, a hot mess, now on my own, with 2 confused children, a house & bills, no income... and a broken heart. 

I went through the motions. Anger. Upset. Revenge?

But I soon realised I had to get my shit together, fast. I had two children that needed me. 

So it started, my new chapter. 

I finally took the plunge and started my own business promoting cosmeceutical beauty products. It was something I was really passionate about as I'd tried and been using the products for a while and loved them. It gave me a focus, something for me, to concentrate on.

And I started my self-development journey.
I was introduced to the most amazing confidence coach and motivational speaker who taught me to change the meaning of what happened, to work on myself. His coaching and his programmes helped me more than the counselling sessions I'd been attending. He is now a HUGE part of my life & I work alongside him as his PA. The team of people I get to work with on a daily basis are the most amazing human beings and the best friends I've ever had. I'm truly grateful for every single one of them; for their love, their friendship, their advice, their no f*cks given attitude & kicks up the backside when I need one ;) 
And the best thing, I get to play a huge part in changing peoples lives, which is the most amazing feeling in the world!!



I'm sorry Leanne but this picture is going to make me giggle forever... haha!!


And now we're here. 
A year on. 
I'm running a successful online business and I've now bought my blog and health & beauty business together, working on my mission to help everyone feel beautiful inside and out!! 
Welcome to Ma Belle Vie ;) 

I'm paying my bills, I'm bringing my boys up the best way I know how, and most of all I'M HAPPY!! Like really happy. Happier than I've been in a long, long time.
I'm super proud of myself. My boys are proud of me.
I'm crazy busy and I love it. I smash my goals & I clap for my damn self! ;)

Someone said the other day that I've gone from Harley Quinn ('Cute but Psycho'... hmm haha) to Wonder Woman. I'm gonna take that as a compliment! ;) 

I have amazing people around me and I'm in no rush to move on. 

I'm working hard on myself, learning about myself, loving myself. This is MY time.
I turned my PAIN into POWER. 
My experiences made me feel unconfident, insecure, not good enough, unattractive... 
I'm going to spend the rest of my life helping others see that they are BEAUTIFUL, that they are ENOUGH and that they don't need to be accepted by others, they simply need to ACCEPT themselves!

Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself. <3





Self-love isn't selfish. It's a necessity. 
Are you good to yourself? Do you treat yourself; your mind, body and soul kindly?
I'll be talking more about self-love soon. 
But for now, I just wanted to introduce you to my new branded website; MY NEW CHAPTER.

I can't wait to share my journey with you!
