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.

My Summer Roller Coaster.

Hi to all my dear blog readers, sorry I have not been around for a few months, I had to take time off. I have had one of worst summers of my entire life, so as you can appreciate this post is the hardest I have ever had to write.
  In the Summer I lost my beloved Mother, she had been ill for a while but over the summer weeks she got worse and died at the end of the season, even though it was expected it was still a massive shock,  at times I cant believe it has happend and other times life is normal, and other times the sense of loss is unbearable. I lost my best friend the women who knew me  best of all didn't judge me and was the wisest person on the planet whose advice will never be forgotten and passed on, I was never going to write on the blog ever again, thinking I would have a blank head and never being able to get my  feelings out and turn them into words.  But my younger Brother said you need to go back on your blog it will do you good and distract you, you are creative …

My Obsession with Red Shoes.

I was clearing out some boxes that were secretly stashed at the bottom of my wardrobe,  actually  I forgot about them.  There were about six of them, I wondered what was in each one,  I took them out and placed them on my bed in great anticipation of what I might find, I opened the first one and there was a lovely pair of red stilettos  that were about 15 years old, and I hadn't worn in ages, the second one were some flats,  third some pumps, all the boxes contained shoes of some style that I hadn't seen for an eternity.                                         Why have I kept all theses old shoes, I thought, when I hadn't worn any of them for years, all lined up I looked at them. Yes  they are all Red,  and  that's why I couldn't bear to part with any of them.                                         I had discarded all different colours and style's  down the years,    couldn't spot any of them,  not even in a line up…

A TRUE STORY.

Last Summer 2018, the long hot Summer that we had here in the UK and all over the world, I had a blind in my Bathroom that was beautifully old and needed replacing desperately, but life gets in the way and I never kept getting around to do it, you know what I mean my lovely readers, you look at your old friend, and think yep you had it.  One day after one hot boiling day I went to close the window and my hand went right through it. and a big rip appeared,  I think the heat and time had made the blind fragile and vulnerable. It looked awful so I got a a big pair of scissors and cut across it embarrassed by the bathroom situation, lets say I can't cut very straight I scanned it from afar and thought, "No you have got to go".
    That's when I found a fantastic company that Makes made to measure blinds, they are called Make My Blinds.  They have a great and easy to navigate website, that make your blinds exactly to …

The Secret Blogger

Put your hands up who's a secret blogger,  me me me.  In a room full of people I would be the first to stand up, in a queue I would be well and truly at the front.  I am the Ultimate secret blogger I confess, anyone else come on own up.
    On a serious note when, I started my blogging journey I really wanted something to do on a creative level if  20 or so people read my posts I would have been really happy, I never realised  that I would get this far, I have learnt so much in such a short space of time. I started my blog on July 17th 2018, only one person knew about it, my Brother I needed him for the technical bit, I will give him a shout out because he does read the blog don't you know, it took me about three weeks to tell my Sister, and one of my Nieces and my older Brother but no one else knows,   I feel quite like it's some kind of big hush hush secret, don't get me wrong I am proud of my little corner of the internet, I am just not ready to share it with …
