Hey I’m Claire and can I let you in on a secret?
I find writing about me almost impossible.
I think it is that feeling of standing up and shouting from the rooftops hey look at me I am so amazing and look I have done all this neat stuff so I must be awesome, right?!
You know… I nourish women to sensational living, to evoke the senses to develop a love affair with their body, their lives and their food, I enable women to step out as the star of their life.
Which all means in plain old English – I make you love you, eat great food and stop hiding your talent.
So surely that should mean it would be easy for me to yell look at me!
Well, I can tell you I am a show off… I love to be on stage whether that is giving talks, workshops or dancing.
Through my business – The Raw Bombshell – I worked with hundreds of women and absolutely loved it. But, I felt I was hiding behind a mask, behind the facade of The Raw Bombshell and so I decided to come out as me, Claire Maguire. And boy, it feels good.
I love to create courses and programs around food and life which are fun, inspirational and motivational.
I am a passionate foodie – I really adore food and the effect it can have on me.
I talk alot.
I listen very well too.
I have had a diverse working life – from academic research, web content manager for BDSM sites, SEO for luxury yachts, underground punk record label owner, catering to lifestyle coaching.
I am a geek – I have a PhD in Medical Biochemistry from Imperial College, London.
I am a mother with 2 wonderful girls.
I have been told I am rebellious and inspirational. I like both of those descriptions of me.
I have overcome addictions, break-downs and break-ups, loss of identity and breast cancer.
I really love to laugh.
I adore dressing up, high heels and red lipstick.
I also rock the natural look.
I enjoy a drink or two.
I am not perfect.
I have been featured in the book Raw Food Made Simple by Karen Knowler.
I am a certified raw food coach.
I can be found eating raw chocolate and drinking green juice yet I won’t say no to a piece of quality steak and fries.
I am on a mission to get people off the all or nothing bandwagon around food and diet.
I love nature.
I also love cities.
I am many many things as I am sure you are too.
Let’s celebrate being unique.
