Hello and welcome to my website. This is where I showcase my jewellery collections and the beauty, piercing and wellbeing treatments I provide at my beautiful garden salon, The Bothy, in Delph.
The services & products I offer are all about everything that helps women to rise and thrive.
To help you walk a little taller, with more confidence and bounce in your step. To give you time and space to unwind; to be your true self and to have a bloomin' good giggle!
The key to success is finding joy in everyday. Goals are great, but we must enjoy the journey along the way. I believe that even in the darkest of times, there is always a sparkle out there somewhere and my aim is to help you find it!
How it began...
In 2014, I took a nail technician course, purely for pleasure and totally unaware that it would lead to a different lifestyle that would enable me to realise my dream & ambitions. Since then I have retrained & added to my skillset.
I had a 16 year career in information, advice, guidance and support services, managing large teams of advisers working with young people and adults. Our role was to support our clients to achieve their goals and aspirations by providing quality career information, advice and guidance, signposting and supporting their access to support services that could help them to remove any barriers that could be preventing them from realising their true potential.
Why I generate my income from several business streams...
Having a business that generates money from multiple streams of income gives me the flexibility and work life balance I need as a single mum with several disabilities.
I was diagnosed with ME/ CFS in early adulthood and later went on to be diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Hypermobility Syndrome. I have also had struggles with anxiety over the years. All circumstances that make it difficult to work in a "normal" 9-5 job. I loved my career and I love working, but my body doesn't love the pressure it can have on me. I need flexible and fulfilling work options.
Multiple income streams not only give me flexibility, they also enable me to continue working and manage my health. My mobility issues mean that standing doing brow treatments for full day, 5 days a week just isn't an option for me, but place beauty treatments of differing types alongside income generated through social selling and affiliate partnerships and that works. It works for me. That's not to say that it doesn't present its challenges, of course it does, but it is a way of working that allows me much more control over and it keeps me challenged. It's a way of working that I am committed to helping other people to achieve. I'm part of an amazing community of women doing the same thing in a variety of ways and we share what we learn. It's super empowering.
Helping you to live your best life today!
For many of us, it can be hard to keep hold of a sense of who we are and to continue enjoying a life that we love and in which we feel valued, appreciated and seen. Life as a woman can present many challenges and hurdles and we balance a lot! Puberty, relationships, careers, family, peri-menopause, menopause, caring responsibilities and a sense of self and identity. It's a lot and it's easy to feel overwhelmed and lost.
I’m passionate about helping women to feel great, to have space to breathe, opportunity to think, laugh, be heard and be pampered. To leave their time spent with me feeling happy in themselves, indulged, with a new sense of purpose. Its a privilege to share this with you so that you can live your best life today!
Having my own business means that I can bring together all my skills and experience to offer my clients and customers a complimentary collection of lifestyle products and services. Whether that be beauty services, ear piercing, skincare products, handmade crystal healing jewellery, lifestyle coaching opportunities, or all of the above.
