Mimi Asks The Blogger.

    Hi all I have started a new niche on my blog, called Mimi asks the Blogger, I have interviewed the lovely Nikki Foster who has a wonderful blog  called Nurture that Sparkle.  I hope you all enjoy it.






1, What is your name.     Nikki (Nixie) Foster

2, What is the name of your blog,    Nurture That Sparkle.com

3,  Can you tell our readers about yourself and your blog? 

     I’m a baby massage, baby yoga, mumma & infant mindfulness facilitator & a mummy to a beautiful one year old. Infant mental health and the importance of the first 1001 days of live are at the core of my enterprise. I want to support and nurture as many mummies, daddies and babies as I can. Setting the cornerstone of mental health in place and building secure, supported, nurtured, loved environments & infants will lead to loving & positive communities. You will find a nurturing, positive experience in my blog full of bonding & love for babies, Mummies and daddies.


4,  Describe how did you first get into blogging?

I am right at the beginning of my blogging journey. Three threads run strongly throughout my life 
Mindfulness 
Working with infants & their families
Writing 
I have reached a point in my life where I can pull all of these together. I want to reach as many families as possible to support them in building their own love bubbles and create a Nurture That Sparkle Tribe across the globe. I can be physically present within my community, I can be present online to a global community.


5,  What would be your ideal working environment?

 I would love to have a Nurture hub within the grounds of my home. Somewhere I can work and hold my groups that I can nurture and allow to grow organically. But, most importantly I want to be present for my baby and allow my mumterprise to grow around him and his needs.


6, How do you want to improve yourself in the next year?

 I want to have in place the mindfulness practices to be in tune with my higher self, allowing me to be the best I can.
Learning and knowledge are so important to be able to offer the nurturing supportive experience I want to be able to give mummy’s and infants, not forgetting daddies. I will have completed my diploma, open access course and linked up with organisations supporting infant and parental mental health.


7, What was your greatest failure and what did you learn from that?

  Losing myself in an abusive relationship.
I learnt I should never be ashamed of myself. Being authentic to myself allows me to help others. Stay true to my higher self, put boundaries in place and this allows me to nurture and empower others.


8,  Tell me about your proudest achievement?    My sons.


10,   Where would you like to be in blogging five years from now?

To have built a thriving Nurture That Sparkle Tribe which is empowering and nurturing communities across the globe. To have built relationships with organisations that are sharing the importance of the first 1001 days ( conception to 2 years old). Be recognised as the go to voice for nurturing, support and infant mental health.

Climate Change Tips, What You Can Do To Help.

With all the talk about climate change, and all the protests in London at the moment, I wanted to do a little research about it, of course I have heard of climate change, since the late eighties, when I first heard of the term The Ozone Layer, we did learn a little about it, but to be truthful it never really went any further than that.  But lately with all the talk around I have been thinking very carefully about this planet we have borrowed to live on.
  I have done a lot of reading on the subject  in the last week and have been surprised how many things I can do to help climate change I  have decided to adopt some if not all of them for myself, some I already have done without realising that I had.  Can you imagine if all of us do our bit for the planet we might be able to save so much of it for future generations. Here are my tips, can you help?

Four Days In Florence.

Hi I have just returned from a  lovely trip  to Florence in Italy,   we booked it a couple of weeks ago, I never thought we would get flights, but we did and off we went, I surprised myself really, when I book a trip it's usually months in advance and I have to plan every detail I don't know what your like my dear readers, I think it's a confidence thing,  this is the first time I have let someone else plan a trip and I just went with the flow, not like me at all. I came to the conclusion of, why am I worrying life is to short just go with it. And I did.

Dear Meghan,

                        I hope you have not been reading all the horrible comments from the trolls, that I have been reading including the awful and ridiculous one's  that has been on your very own Instagram account in the last few days, it just makes me realise  that in reading them, you can tell how much people believe what they read in online newspapers and magazine's  and over social media how ill informed they all are and how all these made up stories are ridiculous so obviously untrue it's laughable, for example your post the other day on your Instagram account where you unfollowed  everyone, if they had bothered reading it they would ha…
