Running with an Olympian

Hello hello! What would you say if I told you that I spent yesterday morning running across the embankment dodging commuters with an Olympic athlete?! Confused? Well, don’t worry, I haven’t ditched my day job in hopes of Rio glory. I’m still very much a novice when it comes to all things fitness, which is […]

In Defence of ‘Clean Eating’

I want to preclude this post by saying that I am a lifelong fan of gluten in all its forms. I adore cheese, I can polish off a Five Guys burger like there’s no tomorrow, and chocolate is my BFF. I am a fan of all food generally (except mushrooms, but let’s not get into […]

My Favourite Spring Wellbeing Products

When I first started this blog (nearly two years ago now – say whatttt) I was all about the experiences over the things. For example, I never really found beauty products, fashion or material stuff that interesting. Partly because I wasn’t that bothered about following trends, but mostly because I was poor LOL true story. I […]

Easter Special – Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

It’s Easter! The season of great food. Chocolate eggs, chocolate bunnies, roast lamb, hot cross buns, more chocolate eggs… You can see why I love it, right?! Before heading back to the parents for the long weekend and going hard on roast dinners and windswept walks, I’ve been celebrating Easter a little bit differently this year. On Sunday […]

10 Great Podcasts that Aren’t Serial

… Because everyone knows that Serial’s Season Two  isn’t a patch on Season One. Is it just me, or are podcasts having a real resurgence right now? Sorry if that statement offends any seasoned podcasters or podcastees, but I’ve only come to love and appreciate them in the past year or so. These days it seems as […]

7 Things I Learned from Big Magic, aka the Big Game-Changer

I was at the London Book Fair earlier this year when I first came across Big Magic. The huge poster that Elizabeth Gilbert’s publisher had put up on their stand caught just about everybody’s attention with its eye-popping fluorescent colours. This book was clearly going to make a statement. I didn’t get my hands on a copy until […]

Living the Sober October DREAM!

The title of this blog post might give the big surprise away… yes, I’m doing Sober October! 31 days of binning the booze, avoiding the alcohol, refusing the rum, jacking in the Jack… bored yet? I’m doing it mainly for my own health benefits but also plan to donate some money for Macmillan Cancer Support once I’ve completed […]

9 Ways to Motivate Yourself to Exercise When You’re Really Really Lazy

Obligatory new Nikes Instagram…. Hello! Regardless of the above photo, I have had a lacklustre few weeks when it comes to exercise. There are so many little false beliefs that keep telling myself, e.g. “it’s been so stressful with the house move”, “I’ve got too many work/social commitments to deal with”, “getting up early to exercise will just […]

Wilderness Festival 2015

It feels like every blog post I write these days starts with “It’s been a while since my latest update!”, for which I can only apologise for how annoying that might sound. But whatever, it’s true! Life has been something of a whirlwind recently – SHORT RECAP OF LIFE UPDATES: I moved house, had a […]

How Natural Skincare Kind of Changed my Life

I know this is slightly off-topic to the kind of stuff I normally blog about (I never in a million years visualised myself writing a beauty-related post!), but I wanted to write about my recent foray into the world of natural skincare as it’s something I’ve recently become weirdly evangelical about. I’m not joking, it’s kind […]
