You might have noticed that the site is going through some design changes at the moment. I really hope you like what we are doing with it, there’ll be more sections added very soon. While all that gets sorted I’m continuing to keep my blogging regular, so I’d love you to have a browse around the site. If you have any ideas you think I’d like to work on please get in touch.

All About Me

Sophie Mei Lan (aka Mama Mei) is a multi-award-winning journalist, blogger, presenter, columnist, reviewer  & film-maker.

I ditched my dream job to “stay & work-at-home” with the kids. I have now turned my talents to blogging, column writing, speaking,  PR, vlogging and campaigning.

I blog mostly about parenting, health & fitness, lifestyle, food and business.  I also do lots of reviews of places to go, things to do and where to travel with the family
