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 […]

Imposter Syndrome & Not Being “Interesting”

I’m fairly sure that everyone has these days. Days where they feel blurred in the background, like the real you just isn’t being seen. When everyone on social media seems to be having big discussions and you can’t think of one measly tweet. You’re not especially sad or miserable. In fact, you’ve got it pretty good […]

Miss Representation

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.  – Alice Walker This quote introduces the documentary Miss Representation on Netflix. The film examines the mainstream media’s depiction of women, and how this contributes to the lack of females in positions of leadership. It’s something I genuinely feel […]

A Night at #IRLPanel

This week I had the pleasure of attending the brilliant #IRLPanel, the brainchild of bloggers Emma Gannon and Laura Jane Williams. The aim of their event is to bring together women from the internet for a night of meaningful conversation, self-empowerment and connection IRL (in real life for those who don’t like acronyms). Emma and Laura guided […]

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 […]

New Book Reviews! Brooklyn, Dear Daughter, The Versions of Us + A Spool of Blue Thread

I promised you more reviews, right?! I’ve read some crackers recently and am getting on for two a week! Ten-year old me would be proud, I think. I read a few others aside from the below, but chose to handpick my faves and whaddayaknow? They all feature strong female characters dealing with the complexities of family […]

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 […]
