Down time with books

It’s been quiet around here; despite my ankle injury which is still preventing me from running, I have been insanely busy. Luckily Thursday will be the final frantic day in a frantic 6 weeks. I plan to spend Friday sleeping. At the moment, I don’t want to say too much about what I have been doing, but needless to say it’s been a manic few weeks. I’m not sleeping enough. I’m not eating properly. I am so exhausted come the evenings, my brain has turned to mush. Last week my husband asked me a question… View Post

Reflecting on 2017

I thought about doing a round-up post for 2017. I know they are a bit cliché and every blogger is doing one, but truthfully, I enjoy reading them. It’s refreshing to read what people are proud of. It’s refreshing to see the honesty. For me, 2017, like every other year, has had ups and downs. I haven’t spoken about many of the changes of the blog, although if you follow me on social media, you will have picked up on bits and pieces.

The impact of words

We’ve all heard the term “sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me.” But how true is that? Last year, I worked with an insurance brand on a fantastic campaign.

We live in a world where we’re… View Post

Future Fit Childhood Nutrition

Firstly, I feel I must apologise to the lovely folks at Action PR for the tardiness of this post. It’s been a long time coming. Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to attend a really interesting event hosted by Action PR. Delivered by the knowledgable and passionate Performance Nutritionist, Tilly Spurr on behalf of Future Fit Training, we were given a fascinating insight into the importance of Childhood Nutrition. I loved Tilly. I’m not a nutritionist. I love food and I care about what I eat. I have a 3 year old and I… View Post

Seeking sanctuary in mindfulness

Post written in collaboration with Vitabiotics I’m a person who gets stressed quite easily. Usually over things that I can’t control, or when small easy jobs which should take 5 minutes to do suddenly take most of the day. You all know the sort of thing I mean! London transport is something else which can irritate me beyond belief; luckily for me I now only have to deal with it once a week or so.   Yoga Yoga really has been a revelation for me. It wasn’t ever something that I really enjoyed, but now… View Post
