Good morning how are you ?
I’m Charlotte, I’ve been a stay at home Mum caring for three children, two beagles, 1 needy cat but only one husband for longer than I care to remember. After many years of only being a Mum, and wiping away tears and bums, I felt I needed a challenge!
Over recent years I have organised many social events at our local Cricket Club, and even planned my own wedding! This had built up my sagging confidence (it's not only boobs that sag after children) so I decided to start my little business selling food diaries, meal planners, dated diaries, stationery and much more! Why? Well I've pretty much been on a diet of some kind for the last twenty-five years! And I'm a girly girl so making things, sparkly, glitzy and glamorous is right up my street!
I have lost 6 stone through the Slimming World plan since the birth of my youngest son 10 years ago! Yes it’s taken me that long! 10 Years!! I’m still not quite where I want to be but us women are never happy are we? We just got to keep on going!
In the months leading up to my wedding 2 years ago I wrote all my food that I was eating daily in one of my food diaries, what exercise I was doing and how much water intake I had in a desperate attempt to get into the dress of my dreams for my special day. Looking back now I could not believe how much it focused my mind and I stayed in control of what I was eating for once! This was my eureka moment when Princess Planning was born in March 2017, now every spare moment I have is dedicated to my small business and to all you princesses out there in helping you reach your goals.
Fast forward a couple of years I can now proudly shout from the rooftops that I am a author. Yes that’s right, I have written my own Happy Planning book with Penguin books. !!
I’m so excited to announce that my first book is out on 7th January 2021! This book has been a long time in the making, and I’m over the moon to be able to finally share the news with you all. Each section of the book is dedicated to a different area of life where I believe that planning truly helps – from the everyday to the big life occasions! It has plenty of examples of the practical ways I like to plan that you can use yourself at home. All your support means the absolute world to me and I wouldn’t be able to have surreal experiences and opportunities like this without each and everyone of you, so thank you from the bottom of my heart.
