When we talk about mental health care we often associate it with negativity, like someone being deeply depressed, suffering with anxiety and panic attacks or having an eating disorder (to name just a few), but what about just looking at those two words and what they stand for. The health of our mind, something that even when not dealing with any of the above issues, is crucial to a happy and healthy life. We ALL, and I stress ALL, need to look after our mental health whether we think we have an issue or not. The health of our mind… View Post

Yikes, it’s been a little while since I posted my activewear favouritesĀ on the blog! I have no clue why, as searching the world wide web for my favourite leggings is up there with my favourite things to do! šŸ˜‰ Just kidding, kind of. As a lot of my post have been pretty personal and deep of late, I thought I’d do a bit of online shopping for you today instead. These are the activewear favourites that absolutely loving at the moment. And if you’re interested to see what I bought recently for my holiday, check out my latest YouTube video…… View Post

There is often the pressure to feel like everything should be perfect when you’re an ‘influencer’ (forgive me for using that word, I hate it), but right now I feel far from perfect and this is something I think you should all know. I currently feel so full from food that I feel physically sick and I just came away from crying to Rob about how rubbish I feel and how I’ve failed at sticking to my plan of eating well over the bank holiday weekend. I’ve come a VERY long way since my days of bulimia and eating disorders,… View Post

It’s taken me a little longer than planned to write this Bali travel guide blog post, but I wanted to find time to sit down and share some amazing places with you, so here goes. Sure, there are no doubt many more awesome places in Bali, but during our short trip, these are the places we stayed, ate in and flowed at, making up my very own wellness and yoga Bali travel guide. WHERE TO STAY Svarga Loka Resort – This place has a little slice of my heart and I cannot wait to go back. Read my full review… View Post

As I sit here at my dining room table having just finished a therapy session and post-session journaling, I’ve been thinking about a Rumi poem my therapist mentioned to me, Chickpea to Cook, and decided that I want to share it with you. My being ‘in therapy’ is something I will be talking more about on my YouTube channel when I’m ready, but for now just know that I’m ok, I’m on a journey, a tough journey at times, but a rewarding journey of the self that I’m am proud to be ready for. There are many translations for Rumi’s… View Post

I’m so excited about this blog post, as I’m not even that much of a fan of bananas, but this vegan banana bread recipe with chocolate chips creates somethingĀ just so darn dreamy and delicious, so I’m typing at 100mph, wanting to share this recipe with you ASAP! First though, here’s a little story about how my love affair with vegan chocolate chip banana bread begun… I actually give thanks to the lovely Shona Vertue, who when I caught up with her for brunch last year I ate my first ever slice of banana bread and it’s had a little place… View Post

I always say that things happen for a reason and I believe that they do. Some things more obviously than others. About three days before our trip to Bali, the hotel we were due to be staying in let us down at the last minute, so I reached out to a contact of mine to see if she was working with any hotels in Bali that she could recommend. Within the hour we were booked in to stay at the Svarga Loka Wellness Resort in Ubud for four nights. Located in the PenestananĀ area of Ubud, Bali, the Svarga Loka Wellness… View Post

I know, I know, I’m chatting about beauty favourites – who’d have thought it! But it’s something I get asked about a lot, so every now again I like to share my favourite products with you. I’m a bit of a creature of habit, so even though there are some newer products in here, there are also a couple of old faithfuls that I’m still loving. I’m going to cover everything from hair, skincare and make up, but do not fear, that doesn’t mean it’ll be a long blog post, as I like to keep thing simple when it comes… View Post

Running Motivation: I’m currently coming to the end of two weeks without running, which has been hugely frustrating and therefore my running motivation is lacking. I have no one else to blame other than myself… I’m a muppet, but a muppet who realised something. Those who watch my Instagram stories might have already seen the dreaded blisters, but for those who don’t, let me fill you in. I bought myself a new pair of Dr Martens a couple of weeks ago and decided a great way to break them in would be to walk for 30 minutes up and down… View Post

Best Books 2017: Seeing as today is World Book Day, it seems like a good day to tell you about some of the books I love, the reasons I read and also why it’s ok to read what YOU want to read. Let’s celebrate the best books 2017. It wouldn’t be a modern world without an annoying slither of judgement every now and again and where something like reading should be applauded no matter the book title, sometimes it isn’t. I’m not ashamed to say that apart from Anastasia Steele’s inner goddess ruining a few good moments, I hardly hated… View Post
