FOOD FOR THOUGHT...

Perfect place for a nice business lunch in the south coast. My work brings me down to the thriving town, well recognised for it's University, Portsmouth University which was ranked in the top 25% of universities in the country for student satisfaction as well as being ranked as the 5th best modern University in the UK by the Times Good University Guide, having just been given the Gold Award! Well done Portsmouth!

I say this with pride as it is the town where I was born and raised and is home to many of my family and friends.

Whilst seeing one of my clients, I settled for a most healthy, tasty lunch in Southsea's HOME CAFE

IN LOVING MEMORY OF A GRACEFUL, CHARMING AND BRAVE BEST FRIEND OF MINE RACHAEL...

Rachael sadly passed away from cervical cancer on the 8th of May 2016.

When Rachael received the alarming and terrifying news that her cancer was terminal, Olly and Rach decided to bring their marriage forward, so they could cement their unity, devotion and commitment to each other.  This, in turn, gave Rachael something very positive and special to focus on.

They were both married in March 2016 on a beautiful spring day.

Laughter echoed all through the day and night, that was Rachael's way. As Rach is a best friend of mine (and myself being a make-up artist), I naturally carried out her make-up on her wedding day. The make-up ran slightly over time due to us laughing all the morning. Moments I will cherish and so typical of us.

My heart truly goes out to Rachael's supportive and loving family - I am so happy to have met them more intimately. The bond Rachael had with her parents and two sisters was completely evident. I loved seeing them all together. Special thank you to Rachael's family for being so accommodating at such a difficult time - I can totally see where Rachael got her incredible strength from. My deepest love to you all.

Rachael shared the most special time with her loving and devoted husband, Olly, from the moment they met, leading up to their wedding, right through to the end. The love they have for each other is to be admired. I am proud to say I have gained a friend in Olly and another in one of Rachael's best friends, Roberta - truly charming, caring and loving people with so much love for my friend Rachael. It's so comforting to share all of our memories of her when we all get together. Much love to you both.

Rach, was the bravest, most loving person I had the pleasure to have met.  Even at her worst she was still able to make contact and raise a smile for all to see. What was remarkable and so typical of her nature was that she tried her very best to raise funds for cancer charities and her local hospice that gave her the best care anyone could have wished for. She wanted others to experience the same, but ultimately, she wished for a cure so there would be no need for such hospices to exist.

Instead of loved ones buying flowers at Rachael's funeral, it was by her request that the money go to charity instead. It was of upmost importance for Rachael to help raise awareness and call out to people to have regular check-ups, making it a priority.

I do not wish to morn but to celebrate the person she was - a tower of strength, courage and determination, a kind and loving person with a laugh that will ring in my ears for a lifetime.

In honour of Rachael, her family, friends and anyone who has been affected by this terrible disease, I have teamed up with Cancer Research to become a fundraiser. The details of this will follow soon... Keep a look out!

A special mention to the creative and talented photographer, well known for his unobtrusive approach, who captured the very essence of the day and is responsible for taking these stunning pictures, is Oxford's very own 'Tom Weller'.
