Interview with Lauren Armes, founder of welltodo London

I’m WELL EXCITED to share this new post with you today. Ever since starting this blog, I’ve had the notion that I’d like it to be a place that not only shares my own ramblings on living a good life, but showcases other people’s ideas on the subject too. Now that we’re into 2015 and […]

A Happy and Healthy 2015

Happy new year! I hope you had a fun Christmas and New Years’ break and are looking forward to all that 2015 has to bring. I had a very restful week with my family in Wales, although my poor Dad was ill for most of it which meant his dinner was pulverised into ‘Christmas lunch […]

The Strala Experience

What better way to get back to work after a holiday than spend the week hanging out and taking yoga classes with Strala founder Tara Stiles?! It was so much fun to have Tara over for a week while she was promoting her new book Make Your Own Rules Diet. As well as some cool […]

#GivePresence – The Bane of Busyness

Happy Thanksgiving and Black Friday! (Not sure if we should “celebrate” Black Friday judging by some of the stories in the news today, but still). With all the festive spirit on social media my eye was caught by the lululemon campaign ‘Give Presence’. I watched the video and highly recommend you give it your attention for a few […]

Om Yoga Show

It’s been longer than I care to admit since I’ve taken to the mat, so when the opportunity to attend the Om Yoga show popped up I was there faster than you can say ‘savasana’. With free open classes over three days, hundreds of exhibitors and lots of great deals to be had, the show […]

Insaniacs Review

I can’t make excuses any longer – the simple fact is, since my half marathon over 4 weeks ago I have abandoned any attempt at a fitness routine. If truth be told I’ve mainly been spending my nights curled up in bed watching multiple episodes of The Good Wife with a steaming mug of hot chocolate. It […]

The Runners

Hello all! I’ve had a mini-hiatus from blogging the past few weeks but I’m back with a whole load of autumn posts up my sleeve which I’m hoping will be with you before 2014 is out. I wanted to share (in case you haven’t seen it) the short film ‘The Runners’ which was released a […]

Half-Marathon Memo #4: Race Day!

Well, the day finally came that has been looming over me for several months now – race day! For the past couple of weeks in particular I’ve felt the same sort of mix of nerves/excitement/dread that you used to get before an exam at school. Which is silly really, because who would care whether I […]

Half-Marathon Memo #3

It’s four weeks till race day and the glorious heat wave of July has disappeared. In its place are sharp winds, rain and even occasional thunderstorms. S’laters, summer! Whilst running in cooler temperatures is actually better, I’m a massive wuss when it comes to running in the rain. I know some people really dig it, […]

A trip to the Chuckling Goat farm

This week wasn’t the normal 9-5 in that my boss and I spent two days in the depths of South West Wales with no phone signal, a dinky Citroen hire car, hanging out on a farm with 50 goats! One of the best things about my job is that I get to meet so many […]
