As the war in Syria rages on, Imogen asks how we can make a difference.
Here's to the late, great Carolyn Lazarus, founder of totally4women. Her vision continues...
A Natural Burial Most people don’t like to think about death and why would we? Life is for living and we generally put thoughts of our inevitable demise to one side. We infrequently focus on any aspect of that part of our future and although some pass on their final wishes to their family, many people […]
A few weeks ago when talking with a good friend she told me that women in their forties and fifties really want to discuss The Two Ms. She said I should write about them. I was totally in the dark. The Two Ms? What was she talking about? With laughter frothing from her mouth and knowing […]
Charlotte’s Helix seeks to support a global initiative to unlock the genetic code of anorexia nervosa. Many of us will know of someone who has suffered, or is still suffering, from the eating disorder anorexia nervosa. What you might not know is that the risk of developing an eating disorder is largely genetic and its […]
Imogen is suffering from half-term haze....
Some of us love our clean sheets, others think it's a chore only to be done every couple of months...

This came […]
Why does the word feminist still scare some of us? Are you a feminist? I asked a friend recently and we both scratched our heads in confusion. When I put the same question to one of my daughters later that day, her certainty took me aback. “Of course I am a feminist” she told me […]

Well, they do say a picture paints a thousand words whereas the limit on Twitter is just 140 characters. Instagram! It is currently my greatest bête-noir. I want to love it but I […]
On a day to day basis, I am one of life’s planners. If you want to make a social arrangement with me then don’t suggest this week or even next, the earliest gap in my diary is three weeks hence. This is not because I am enormously popular and on an endless whirl of fun […]
Can one trip to the High Steet restore your inner chic? As a woman who is based largely at home: wife, mother, writer, accountant, general dogsbody (I am a veritable CEO although that’s another story!), I frequently struggle with the mundanity of my attire. I live in a rural idyll with a road that floods […]
