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

From London to Nottinghamshire

Post in collaboration with Slater Gordon If you follow me on social media, you may have noticed that I’ve made an awful lot of references to time spent on trains recently. The reason for this is due to my recent relocation to Retford, Nottinghamshire in the East Midlands. This decision was simply put about money and getting a decent life balance. I love London and I hope to move back, but we were becoming crippled by the cost of living and having looked at the costs associated with buying such as survey, solicitor fees, conveyancing… View Post

Running Struggle

I’ve been finding running a real struggle again recently. I had started to fall back in love with it, then I moved house. It was really chaotic and I wasn’t really running much.

I had a tactic in my head after the… View Post

Baxters Soup Swap Challenge

If you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably aware that I’ve moved house. The last few weeks have been manic and I still don’t have my kitchen appliances fitted. Moving is a busy and stressful time, so anything that can make meal times easier is a real bonus. Especially when they give you the option of having something hot inside you.     Step forward, Baxters Soup. I was asked to take part in the Souper Swap Challenge, swapping my usual lunch choice for one of the Baxters soups every day for two weeks. My… View Post

Vintage style of a fitness blogger

Post in collaboration with Rokit When I’m not in lycra or chilling out in my pyjamas, I’m often found in vintage style clothing. I love the rockabilly look, and I’m also a huge fan of classic 40s cuts. Give me a pencil skirt and high heels, or a big swing dress and I’m happy. Winged eyeliner, bettie bangs, flowers in the hair – I love it all. If we have to wear clothes, then I believe we should have fun with them and express our personality.     If you follow me on instagram, you’ll… View Post
