Created by a hard-working Mum and Glossy Magazine Editor (in a previous life), this is a place for you all to come, not to simply hear from us, but to hear from one another. A place to share the good stuff that us girls bring.

Something us ladies do very well is communicate, we are known and admired (not enough if you ask me) for our ability to talk. We can talk through the good times, the bad times and the in-between. This site was born from the need to share advice that has lasted generations alongside the latest, hot from the press information and subjects.

Another thing the fairer sex does extremely well is support: I hope that this site will empower, inform and support as many of us who need or want it. A little bit of sparkle and fun won’t go amiss either…

There are no boundaries here ladies! Consider yourself amongst friends whilst perusing these pages – we can chat about anything just like you would with your friends – the only stipulation is that once you have read something that either helped you, made you smile or caught your interest – PLEASE PASS IT ON.

Ladies Pass it On

There comes a day, somewhere in the middle of every woman’s life, when Mother Nature herself stands behind us and wraps her arms around our shoulders, whispering

“It’s time.”

“You have taken enough now. It’s time to stop growing up, stop growing older and start growing wiser and wilder.

There are adventures still waiting on you and this time, you will enjoy them with the vision of wisdom and the companionship of hindsight, and you will really let go.

It’s time to stop the madness of comparison and the ridicule of schedule and conformity and start experiencing the joys that a life, free of containment and guilt, can bring.”

She will shake your shoulders gently and remind you that you’ve done your bit. You’ve given too much, cared too much, you’ve suffered too much.

You’ve bought the book, as it were, and worn the t-shirt.

Worse, you’ve worn the chains and carried the weight of a burden far too heavy for your shoulders.

“It’s time” she will say.

“Let it go, really let it go and feel the freedom of the fresh, clean spaces within you. Fill them with discovery, love and laughter. Fill yourself so full you will no longer fear what is ahead and instead you will greet each day with the excitement of a child.”

She will remind you that if you choose to stop caring what other people think of you and instead care what you think of you, you will experience a new era of your life you never dreamed possible.

‘It’s time’ she will say…

“to write the ending, or new beginning, of your own story.”

Ladies Pass it On

Doria Ragland sat alone at The Royal Wedding, not because she had to...but because that’s just what single parents do.

And if you walk into any school concert hall, church ceremony, parents evening or graduation across the land, you will find many just like her.

Holding it together.

Alone.

Not because she was always that strong but because she learned to be.

She had to be.

Women... they just do it.

Some days they don’t know how they will do it, but every single day it gets done.

Doria Ragland sat alone at The Royal Wedding....

Because mums just show up.

That’s what we do.
Regardless.

And she looked lovely and dignified

🌟

She was amazing

She looked beautiful

so true ❤️

Whether you are a single parent or because your partner can't accompany you, you do what you do with dignity. She certainly did!

Such a beautiful lady. Meghan definitely takes after her 😍 she looked fab and very happy to be in the company of the royals and I hope they welcomed her with open arms too xx

So very true.Way to go Doria you looked very proud, poised and beautiful. At some point and time single parents just learn that it doesn’t matter if they are alone or not. It doesn’t matter is if it a restaurant or wedding or funeral. It is just natural to us.

Class and elegance through and through 🙏🏻

Beautiful dignified Lady who looked Amazing. We all love Doria. 👏.

Amazing Doria.

She looked beautiful ❤️

Beautiful lady...

The look on her face says it all. She is just beaming with pride and it's lovely to see.

She looked amazing and very dignified. Just lovely x

Angelina Santiago

AMEN!!

Her face gives the reflection of her goodness

Yolande 💗💗

Emmaline Rose

Grace Mccloyy

Thank you so much for all the amazing comments on my letter to Prince Harry yesterday...I only just read today that this seat was left empty for Diana during the ceremony. Fresh tears. 😥

I sobbed reading it donna. Such lovely words xxx

And I don’t doubt she sat right there throughout the whole ceremony 🖤🖤🖤

Beautiful 💕 x

I actually read that where the queen sits the chair in front of her has to remain empty.

What a wonderful tribute to DIANA, ( respect )...

Pauline Wilson

Rochelle McManus is correct but it would've been a sweet sentiment had it been for Princess Diana. ❤

Kelly Lyons - I noticed the empty chair but didn’t think twice about it... nice huh.

Absolutely wonderfully written and so true. Now rest peacefully Diana and congratulations to Harry and Megan xx

I bet she was there in spirit. 💞

I read it was because it was in front of the queen and nobody sits in front of the queen

There is an empty space in front of both the Queen and Prince Phillip so maybe the space is for his mother our Queen of Hearts xx

She should of been there looking glamorous and proud of her beautiful son , and Camilla thanks for wearing that ridiculous fucking hat hides yr ugly bitch face 😤😂😤😂

Tracy 😉

No matter, if it is for the Queens arrangement. I believe Diana was sitting right there, that's why the ceremony was full of life, just like her 🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷

Helen ❤️

The seat next to the Queen has to remain empty.....

She was with him on his special day❤👼xx

Chelsea 😢

they're not the only ones who have lost a parent while they were young, and the rest of us didn't have the support network they had - we had to manage on our own, .Most of us turned out okay, and we had to support the remaining parent in their grief, Stop sanctifying the flighty bimbo who spent her time chasing men and telling the paparazzi where she'd be instead of looking after her boys

No it wasn’t. No one is to sit in front of the Queen. I prefer to tell myself it’s for Diana.

Awwww so beautiful

Stella Papacharissiou Marija Anemouri 😭😭😭

Well my mum wasn't at my daughters wedding but we played McArthurs Park Nancy Viner and she danced with my dad a very touching moment very special.

Kathryn 😢😢😢

Ladies Pass it On

Dear Harry,

I want you to know, on behalf of all Mums everywhere, that your mum is with you on your special day.

For every single second of it.

Don’t ask me how I know… don’t ask me for science or proof. I can’t give you any of that.

I just know.


You see, I have 2 little boys.

I understand perfectly well how much love Princess Diana had for you and your big brother. So much so in fact, that using that word doesn’t even seem to do it justice. It’s more than love.

It’s other-worldly. It transcends everything. It is eternal and nothing, not even death can put a stop to it.

Oh yes, she is there alright.


I also believe, quite strongly, that your Mum worried about you the most.

Don’t get me wrong, I am sure, like the rest of the mothering population, she worried endlessly day and night about you both. But I really do think it would have have been you that gave her that little bit of extra fear in her heart.

Because Harry, you have that spark. And you were born into a world that likes uniformity, acquiescence and regime. Spark doesn’t fare very well in such situations.

You, my boy, have fire in your soul and I am willing to bet my last dollar that your Mum both admired that – with an overwhelming sense of pride – and feared for you at the same time.

And yet, here you are ‘settling down’ – with just the right amount of individuality, spark and fire to put a smile on her face and endless warmth in her heart – wherever she may be.

You did good.

And a nation – no a world full of mothers –is so there, watching you and showering your union with love. I hope you can feel that. You deserve it.

No little boy should know the pain of losing his Mummy – and what a mummy she must have been.

We are with you.

We are all with you.

On behalf of every mum everywhere – we wish you all the happiness and love this life can deliver.

Diana, you did good. You can rest easy now, wherever you may be.

He is doing just fine.

Ladies, pass this on ....with love: ladiespassiton.com/2018/05/14/to-prince-harry-on-behalf-of-all-mums-everywhere/

I so agree.

Beautiful words.... and I’m sat here with tears in my eyes of how true this is. Xxx

Beautiful well said and very true. ❤❤

She was an amazing woman and mother who raised truly amazing boys who grew into truly amazing men And we are all so proud of what they have become ❤️❤️❤️

Fabulous xxx

Beautiful ❤xx

Beautiful, so true. Frances Hayward this is what I say about Ethan. The spark ⚡️ ❤️

Bernadette Stuart Landers

Brought tears to my eyes. I'm a mom of three boys.

Lovely lovely words. Harry you did good and you ,re mother would have been so proud of you and William.

She probably is but i don't think has dad is attending !

Sandra Smith

Without a word of a lie, I told my closest friends. During the wedding when the cellist was playing, I went outside listening to the music looking at the stars, and said to Princess Di, in my mind, you'd be so proud of your Harry, and then I saw a shooting Star, it was beautiful. Harry's mum was definitely watching him today, shooting star or not, but it warmed my heart to see it ❤️ 🌟

❤️❤️❤️

Beautiful 💕

Beautiful words thanks for posting 😍

I admired Princess Dianna very much. As a mother, I felt so sad for her sons when they lost their mother and have followed them in the news and articles over the years. Always, I wish the best for them. I pray Harry is ecstatic on this special day and has a long and happy life. I think both of Diannas sons have chosen/ been granted, soul mates. Praying as a mother for the two young men who had such a beautiful, loving mother. ❤️🙏🏻☮️🎈

I'm sure Diana would be there.x

Was thinking the same thing throughout the service. .. He certainly would have made her proud x Lovely words that you have taken the time to write

My youngest son got married 7 and half years ago..and my eldest a month ago. I was so happy and proud on both of theses occasions and it does make me sad for all the mums that are not able to be there. It’s days like this that make me think of how lucky I have been. Diana has missed so much.

At one stage while he was waiting for his bride, he looked up at the ceiling and I wondered if he was thinking of Di

Sobbed all day ♡ Set me off again ♡

So true. I totally agree

Wow! Donna Ashworth beautiful words xx

Wow! This is perfectly written n some of thoughts too💕 Princess Di is indeed overjoyed with Harry n so very proud

Emma has had enough!

The i Paper
"Stop it. Just stop it, ok? Stop doing the 'let's talk about the royal wedding.'"

If you want to watch Emma Thompson throw some serious shade at a reporter for repeatedly asking her about the royal wedding, look no further.

Royalist not so popular

Obviously upset didnt want to talk about her!

Silly woman

I’m with her!

Kez Upton you're not alone! 😂😂😂

Emma who 😀

You go girl! ❤

She's so pompous!

Cheer up women

Cannot stand her.

Jeremy Kopikao .....

Well she wasn't invited lol

Well that was rude of her

Yip, definitely fed up hearing about the wedding!!!!! Why does everyone think everyone else is interested in the wedding!!!!!

Love her!

Saw this yesterday and loved it!!

Arsehole

Fuck yeah, give it a rest!

Totally agree with her, why was she rude??

I agree! I'm so sick of hearing about it because they are just people like all of us. There are much more important things to focus on right now like Flint Michigan's water or the other school shooting that happened last night after the one in Texas. Where is the coverage on this?

Jealous

Looking fab, Emma! Fair comments, too.

Well, excuse me. Very rude.
