Camden Passage has ranked alongside Portobello, Kensington Church Street and Spitalfields  since the 1950s as one of London’s leading antique locations, and now the area has added also many new shops, restaurants, cafes and market stalls. 

Welcome to Islington: Camden Passage
If you like something original, you can certainly find it here: fashionable contemporary clothing, modern designer jewellery, Japanese art prints, together with specialist antique, silver ware, vintage clothing and retro shops which provide the backdrop for market stalls selling affordable collectables, vintage clothes and objets d’art that find their way into antique shops and homes all over the world.

Not to forget the various restaurant and cafés  where you can pause in between shopping and wandering around.

Camden Passage has four separate market areas -  Annie's Antique & Vintage MarketCamden Passage Market , Charlton Place Market  and  Pierrepont Arcade Market . The market areas and market stalls each have different areas of expertise, so take your time to look around.

I am so utterly delighted that my book is now out, available to order both on paperback and on Kindle edition just in time for Business Women's Day - YES!!!!!! :-) 

STOP IT! It's all in your head   is my labour of love and my way to encourage, inspire and empower women to achieve what they want professionally and not be confined by societal, religious, family paradigms of what " women should do/are like" and, most importantly, the restrictions in their head.
If that is being CEO of a Global Company or a stay-at-mum or Director of Paperclip ( whatever grabs your fancy) so be it.

Writing this book was also a personal challenge ( the 30 days thingy) which confirmed to me once and for all that you can really do whatever you set your mind to, if you really want to that is.

Couple of tips for writing a book from me:
  • write about what you are passionate about, you know more than you think.
  • free-write about the parts/chapters in the book you like the most and you are most interested in first - that will give you a great boost at the beginning - you can edit and add the boring bits later - by then most of the book will be almost there
  • keep your own voice - write as you speak so to speak ( people do need to understand you though..)
  • keep an open mind, ideas will flow into you mid-way through the project
  • a deadline and going public is good to beat procrastination ( but if that stresses you out too much don't do it) - the deadline certainly helped me.
You can do it too!!!

The time is getting closer and closer to the release of   STOP IT, It's all in your head   my new book ( 22 September for Business Women's Day - US) .

I have now  received the proof copy of the paperback which looks absolutely fabulous: a couple of things to correct but overall I am super happy with the result.
A lot of marketing to do now between Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+ ( which is PS: looking like more work than the actual writing of the book).
