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 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.
