Interview with author and artist, Charlotte Reed

I’m very excited about this month’s interviewee on For Good Times’ Sake, as this lovely lady has brightened up my Facebook feed for a long while now! I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Charlotte over the past year and always pop by her stall to say hello when I’m around Portobello Road. Meet […]

Belle Gibson & The Backlash on Wellness

This week a sad and shocking news story was reported. Wellness blogger Belle Gibson confirmed that she lied about having terminal cancer, after having built a huge following online for treating her “disease” with a gluten and sugar-free diet. Her book ‘The Whole Pantry‘ has been taken off the shelves, her bestselling app removed from the […]

#Hbloggers Fitness Event

It’s been about four months since I joined the Health Bloggers Community team as Features Editor and already so much has happened! I’ve commissioned interviews & guest experts for their blog, upped my email marketing game writing the weekly newsletters and met such a supportive online community who love connecting with each other and sharing ideas.

Unsubscribing from ‘Fitspiration’

I’ve been thinking for a while now about what we see as ‘fitspiration’, especially when it comes to measuring our goals and successes online. My views on selfies have always been mixed. While I don’t like the way that our culture has normalised this particular breed of narcissism (plus I need serious help when it comes […]

The Top Seven Green Superfoods, from Julie Montagu

I had the pleasure of attending ‘Superfood Sunday’ recently with triyoga teacher and nutritionist, Julie Montagu to celebrate the release of her first book, Superfoods. 55 of us took over the food court at Whole Foods Market in Kensington, as Julie led us through a dynamic vinyasa flow class that did my body a whole […]

Running 10k and Sleeping All Day

It’s kind of amazing what you can do when you’re motivated enough, isn’t it?! I’ve started setting myself monthly goals – nothing massive, just some targets to aim towards that will keep me on track and encourage me to take little right actions instead of endlessly procrastinating (something I’m prone to doing A LOT). When I […]

METcore at Form Studios – Review

I have to admit that Londoners are spoilt for choice when it comes to fitness, there’s practically a new studio opening every week! I’ve been focusing purely on running and yoga since January, so when my friend suggested the ‘METcore’ class at recent offering Form Studios, I thought it’d be fun to try a new challenge. […]

10K Training (AKA Tackling my Inner Sloth)

The start of 2015 brought fresh fitness resolutions that have been harder for me to stick to than originally thought. I blame the weather (excuse of champions!), but I know deep down that to truly get me into the groove, especially with running, I have to set myself a challenge & sign up to a […]

Interview with Chelsea Parsons, founder of Well & Happy

It’s time for this month’s special guest! When I first found Chelsea’s blog (through Instagram, which is where I make most of my new blog discoveries!) I thought her message was so inspiring and positive. Not to mention that I fell in love with her enormous St Bernard, Bernie, who features in a lot of […]

5 Ingredient Recipe: Buckwheat Blueberry Pancakes

It’s Pancake Day today! To celebrate I’m sharing the recipe for this stack of delicious buckwheat blueberry pancakes that I made over the weekend as a lazy Sunday treat. I felt like I owed my boyfriend a decent breakfast as he made a sterling effort on the Valentines Day front! Buckwheat flour is practically identical […]
