Hello and thank you for joining me!
It’s with huge excitement that I am relaunching my blog, having taken some time away from the keyboard and writing last year.. In truth I missed it which is why I continued to share my musings on Instagram, however thanks to some wonderful friends, I have been encouraged to get back to what I love, and that’s sharing information that I hope will inspire and help you.
If you’re new here, hello! I’m Claire, a full-time mum and live in a beautiful village in the South Hams, Devon with my husband Gareth, our two gorgeous children Emily and Harry and our happy little cat Fred. I’m 40 something (OK, I’m hurtling towards 50! Shhhh!) and I’m feeling young at heart, mostly! Life is hectic but I love it, I know how tricky it is juggling everything!
I love seeing my friends and family happy, being by the sea, interiors, candles, flowers, a good Sauvignon (& more recently Gin!) and warm, sunny days.
I also love feeling fit (I’ve completed the London Marathon 4 times for Coppafeel & Cancer Research UK and am currently on my own health and fitness journey having taken quite a big step back last year. (You can find out more about that and my professional back story here!)
I don’t love people who are unkind.
I’m pleased to meet you.
Why Woman on a Mission?
Women On A Mission was born as part of my VIP coaching business several years ago. I believe we are all on own own little Missions and we each have our missions each day, me included.
Whether it be to be the best parent, partner, friend, to be the best version of ourselves in work and at home – be it to leave the house on time or taking on a big renovation project, whatever the Mission, big or small, in order to do so well, we must look ourselves to the best of our ability. There is a reason the airlines suggest we put on our masks first before helping others in case of an emergency!
I’m now working freelance and I still enjoying writing and if you follow me on Instagram and Pinterest you’ll know I still love sharing my weekly Missions and Power Hours – they are small but very effective and I believe, make a big difference. One mission a week, leads to 52 missions year, 52 ways to bring a positive and motivating habit to our lives, to help us live the best life we can.
Whatever your Mission in life, work, home and garden, it’s good to know there’s someone out there to support you. Our house is our home, our castle, the place we feel safe and special and as we spend our downtime there, let’s focus on how to feel amazing there too. \
I live my life one Mission at a time, hence the name but my passion is to share my nuggets with as many people as I can and so will be sharing with you my musings on all things lifestyle, wellness, nutrition and fitness with a little interiors and gardening thrown in!
You’ll hear me talk about my favourite F’s words along with Fun, Food, Fitness, Faith (self belief) Friendship, Family, Finance and Focus… there are lots of F’s within my Woman on a Mission programme which I still use today (with a few f**k it moments along the way from time to time!) We all have them right?!
This is a place where I hope to help and guide you to a work and life balance where you have boundaries around the things that are important to you. I’ll be helping you instruct your magic wand so that you are in control of the things you desire, creating a guilt free lifestyle but more than anything, I hope this blog will make you feel looked after, inspired and accomplished!
I’m so very pleased to meet you, I do hope that you like my blog and that you’ll join me on this next Mission, it’s the beginning of a whole new chapter.
