Hello, I’m Annie, a mama, wife, yoga mama, therpist, dreamer & procaffinater.
I live with my husband Mark, our miracle baby boy Bodhi River (22 months) & cat Lizzie within the beautiful Shropshire countryside.
This Boho Life is my blog with a focus on real motherhood and parenting, simple and seasonal living and all the lovely little things in life.
“Within every woman there lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, & ageless knowing. She is the Wild Woman, who represents the instinctual nature of women. But she is an endangered species.”— Clarissa Pinkola Estés
I have always had a keen interest in health and originally trained as a nurse, however, after studying holistic therapy and yoga I started to see the incredible benefits of alternative therapies on wellbeing, both physically and mentally. Over the years I continued to develop my knowledge of nutrition, Ayruveda and other healing systems and how they can help you feel happier and healthier.
I specialise now as a therapist in woman’s health, from general wellbeing to fertility, pregnancy, postnatal care, and the menopause especially our mental health during these phases of our life.
There are good days, bad days … and dam right really ugly (losing my shit) days, but I always try to get through them with good vibes, good friends, a lot of yoga … and maybe occasionally gin!
This blog is where I share everything, my infertility & IVF, motherhood, travel, nature, food, yoga and generally just my boho life.

In 2013 I met my soul mate, we moved in together and got married within a year and I have smiled and adored him every day since. You can see the video of our wedding that our lovely & talented friend made here. (Painted Life Productions)
After many many unsuccessful months of trying “the old fashioned way” I was diagnosed with unexplained infertility. We have been through 5 rounds of Clomid and 2 rounds of IVF and every single injection, tear shed and tough day was worth it, on Friday the 24th of February, 2017 at 8 minutes past midnight our beautiful soul Bodhi River came earth side. You can read his birth story here.
In 2012 my brother; a poet, musician, eternal wanderer and free spirit was killed. With the support and kindness of a community a beautiful event was created in his memory. The Big Busk is a charity music festival that is held every year on his birthday. You can see the 2013 video here.
I LOVE our home we have made together, escapes to my spiritual home of St Ives, holding hands, being in my pjs by 7pm, cocktails, lazy breakfasts reading and the simple life … and these days more than 2 hours sleep!!!
