Navigating My 53-Year Odyssey:

Life for me has been less of a path and more of a journey around the world in 53 years – or thereabouts. I've lived two lives: Before Italy and After Italy.

In the "Before Italy" era, stress, excess weight, self-loathing, and routine defined my existence. Escaping on holiday provided the only brief escape.

Now, in the "After Italy" phase, an enormous shift has occurred. The truth unfolded – imperfection doesn't overshadow self-worth for any woman. Italy, taught me that beauty radiates from within and I deserved to be happy.


So, recognising the importance of my desires, I embraced self-reliance and found genuine excitement in life.

This journey isn't just mine; it's an open invitation for you to embark on a voyage of self-discovery and empowerment.


Let's navigate it together.

I Believe...

That in a world where busyness and pressures to 'do more' and 'be more' reside, there's a better way.


For far too long, I was trapped in a mind and body that told me what I wanted wasn't important, so I ate to comfort myself. That's when Almost Perfect was born (you can follow the link if you're interested in negative body image)


Now I believe that as a group, women are moving beyond the notion of serving others before themselves.


My mission is to provide support and encouragement for the small, courageous steps that lead to monumental change. Together, we embrace the idea that self-discovery and personal fulfilment are our right.
