Whether it’s yoga, surfing, fitness, hiking or a mix of all activities, there are a few things that you can do to ensure you make the most of your trip and have the most fun. Having just run my first Cat Meffan Yoga Retreat and with more coming up this year I hope my lovely guests take all of these things on board. One of the first questions I was asked by most people enquiring about my yoga retreat was “is it ok to come on my own?”. By all means come with a friend, partner or family member, but… View Post

My latest luxury travel adventure was to the new Atmantan wellness resort in India. Having only been open for one year, the resort is in near perfect condition with amazing facilities, BUT… yes, there’s a but. Rob and I both went to India with the view that we’d spend lots of time training, doing yoga, eating amazing food and relaxing under the sunshine by the pool… unfortunately not all of those things happened. Don’t get me wrong, Atmantan Wellness Resort is in a beautiful location, has friendly and very knowledgeable staff and has lots on the schedule for those of us… View Post

This post contains a paid advertorial for the new Decléor CC Cream launch. Those that have been reading my blog and following my YouTube & social media shenanigans will know that I spend most of my life make-up free. This is mainly down to the fact that I work from home and teach yoga, two things that I would rarely put on anything other than moisturiser for. That being said I do spend a lot of my time running here there any everywhere and sometimes I wish I had time to put on a little something to even out my… View Post

There are many debates amongst yoga practitioners about whether it’s ok to do yoga during your period, some like to steer clear of any kind of practice, others opt for limited postures and some just continue as normal. Here’s what I think… The reason there is such a debate about it and no one can agree on one answer is because WE’RE ALL DIFFERENT. And our body is constantly changing from one day to the next, not to mention our emotions, especially when that time of the month creeps around. The most important thing to think about when deciding if… View Post

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 favourites 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! 😉 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

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 something 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
