I ummmed and ahhhed for too long about starting a blog. I honestly used to sit in a dream world thinking about it and how I'd love to start one, but i never did! But then on the 30th June 2010 something happened that changed my life in a different direction. The memory and feeling is still raw, but i truly, truly believe that everything happens for a reason...........
So in November 2010 CharlieHearts was born.....
My blog has barely been alive a month, but it was love at first sight and the joy i take from writing and posting is beyond my words! The support from my family, friends and my readers means the world to me.
I'm a twenty something, was blond, but now newly brunette, Gemini through and through. I've danced as long as I've been out of nappies (my parents will gladly vouch for that) and twenty amazing months ago i did the best thing I've ever achieved and became a mummy to a beautiful baby girl.
I'm British, I trained at English National Ballet School, London and I have lived and danced in London, Dublin, Zaragoza, Oslo and for the last four years Lisbon.

The aim of my blog is to share, inspire and promote. I still (after all these years) love my ballet, i adore fashion and seeing new places. I want girls and boys alike to learn that we are who we are. We are all unique, we all have our flaws (i have many!) but we are all here for a reason.
As for the fashion, like any other girl, it would be a dream to be dressed head to toe in Fendi to Prada.
My wardrobe is crammed with stuff from high street to designer items and i believe with mixing and matching and holding your head high you can look and feel wonderful.

After all, we are only here once and this definitely isn't a rehearsal.......
