Hello. My name is Alice Judge-Talbot (formerly Alice Harold). I look like this:
I am a 29-year-old Digital Editor and Consultant living 30 minutes outside of London. I am the mother of a beautiful baby girl, Elfie, who was born on 7th July 2010 with a rare genetic condition. Baby Huxley joined the family on 16th May 2012 and is ace. I am a single mum to Elfie and Hux and totally OK with it.
I enjoy working, cooking, style, a healthy bit of vanity, being punctual, shopping and eating out. I spend too much time on my hair and worrying and not enough time on sleeping. I always wanted to be a writer when I was younger but never managed to become a journalist; this blog is the next best thing.
In a former life I was a bit of a party girl. I worked for a magazine, lived in Central London and would have most likely been found 3 martinis down at Shoreditch House. 2 years on and I’m usually found with chipped nails and unwashed hair on the sofa, half a bottle of Marlborough Sauvingon Blanc down. The transition from parties to poo continues to be tough but I love my new life as a part-time working mother.
I work from home and London as Digital Editor of IKEA Family Live magazine. I adore my job and it’s a huge part of who I am.
This blog is here to record the highlights of my little family’s life, so I will have lots of wonderful memories to look back on when I’m old and smelling of cat wee. I need it because of all that Sauvignon Blanc.
