Welcome to The Cherished. Here you’ll find a mixture of lifestlye, health and fitness posts, sometimes a bit of fashion and beauty thrown in too.

I’m a mama hailing from the South Wales capital, now residing in the beautiful English countryside. It would be the understatement of the century to say it has been a bit of a culture shock, but I get back to Cardiff as often as possible to soak up the buzz of the city.

My background is in history (particularly British and French social history), I worked in a museum until I founded the Cherished brand. For all things cultural and historical you can visit Cherished Heritage here, my new website is coming very soon.

I’m also an athletics coach and work with a talented bunch of youngsters at a private school in the South West. They are the future stars!

I was also an athlete but after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia I am now navigating a new fitness journey. You can follow my progress on this blog but there’s an introduction here.

I have a love of most things vintage, French and literature. I love to write and be creative and hope that you enjoy your time here.

If you have any questions, would like to collaborate, or would just like a chat please feel free to contact me here.
