Last Thursday saw the launch of my lovely friend Vicki from Honest Mum‘s book launch of MumBoss. Vicki and I became online friends almost immediately when I started blogging 4 years ago. Vicki has always supported, encouraged and always looked out for me and we share very similar values on friendship, family and work. She is utterly contagious and I am so pleased I connected with Vicki back then and that our friendship keeps blossoming. She is one hell of an amazing MumBoss and friend.
I was so thrilled to be a part of her celebrations and equally thrilled to be celebrating with my gorgeous friend Kelly-Ann who I met via blogging and social media about two years ago. It feels like we have known each other longer. Kelly-Ann is such an inspiring person and amazing mum. As soon as we connected I knew we were going to hit it off. Kelly-Ann blogs over at KellyAnnSchiavo.com – I would love for you to check her blog out.
Both Kelly-Ann and Vicki are two friends I know I can trust and talk to about everything and anything. Their friendship means so much to me and to be able to celebrate such a momentous occasion together for Vicki’s victory was magical.
When women really support other women something truly wonderful happens. Not only do you feel so happy for someone else you care about, you are at peace with yourself. Far too often I see others saying they are happy for other people but deep down I can see they aren’t. Holding onto bitterness and hating on others is only detrimental to yourself.

Vicki’s launch party was held at Mahiki in Kensington and the place was packed. It was great to see so many people there to support Vicki. The Royal Garden Hotel also created this amazing cake, see for yourself.
Pretty much everyone spent the evening chatting, dancing, drinking and generally having a fabulous time. It was great to catch up with Maggie from Red Ted Art and of course, the ledge that is Papa G. We have our own Papa G in our family (my stepdad). It was great to meet Vicki’s father as I know how much she loves her family. Papa G was clearly super proud of his daughter and spent the whole night with a huge smile on his face. I’m so glad we managed to get this picture even if it’s not the best quality. I can’t wait to see the professional captures of the evening. It really was a fab night.
I pre-ordered my copy of MumBoss when it was first available for pre-order and it arrived the day of the launch. I can’t wait to start reading it and I know I will take so much from Vicki’s inspirational words.
