The first ever Straight and Curly book is here! Carly and I hope you enjoy our non-sensationalist approach to diet and our experiments with lifestyle detoxes
Paid work always trumps ‘work that is unpaid right now but might pay off someday’. So, I often spend my precious morning hours doing stuff for clients

In every household there’s generally one person that keeps track of allllll the little things that keep the family – big or small – running smoothly.
