I’m very fortunate to travel quite a bit through the blog and healthy travelling is very important to me. I love exploring new places and going on adventures with fellow bloggers and Rob, but the day of travel is always one I dread. I can’t stand the feeling of being stuck in the car or train on the way to the airport, then sat at the airport waiting then onto the plane to sit for a bit longer and then to MORE sitting in a car or coach to get to your destination. For the majority of people going on… View Post

Whether you’re based in London or you’re from out of town or overseas, you can still enjoy the the yoga side of London for a day, so I’ve created a little London yoga guide to help. I’ve got a couple of London days planned over the summer where I’ll just be floating from classes to events and on to some delicious eateries to get my healthy food fix. If you fancy doing something similar check out my London yoga guide including my favourite places to go for walk-in classes, events, workshops and food.

Power yoga is just another baby under the Hatha yoga mothership, building upon more basic vinyasa flow sequences and making them slightly tougher (as you’ll see in my power yoga video below). Regular readers of Imperfect Matter will know that I love many different yoga styles and a lot of the time I get onto my mat not knowing what kind of movements will come. I love just moving from my heart and doing what feels right for my body in that exact moment. Sometimes that will leave me breathing deeply into postures for minutes at a time, but I… View Post

As a blogger I feel that it’s my duty to be honest with you about how bloggers get paid, so we’re going to get a little bit real right now about making money, getting gifts and how I work with brands. I was recently asked on one of my YouTube videos whether I was paid to promote the products I was talking about, which was a totally fair question. The bit that worried me was that the person said “I’m not sure if you can honestly answer this, but….” – this shouldn’t be how you guys ever feel about reading… View Post

Despite having a tough time at school with girls being bullies for no reason, I actually feel like I did rather well on the healthy friendships front. I have two incredible groups of friends who are my rocks and I feel like they make me a better person. As well as those people I have a sprinkling of friends who I’ve met throughout work life, my family, Rob and some amazing people I’ve met through the blog who I can call my genuine friends. I feel like I’m a lucky one, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes without even knowing… View Post

Last weekend something wonderful happened (well, mostly wonderful!), I finally ran my first ever 10k race Mallorca style! The Sol Magaluf race, which I was invited to take part in by the ME Melia hotel group – the main sponsors of the race – was set to test both my mental and physical strength. I know a lot of people run a 10k with their eyes closed, but with the issues I’ve had over the years with my knees, this is such a huge achievement. Magaluf isn’t somewhere I’ve ever been to before, but I haven’t been living under a… View Post

These sweet potato baked egg cups are so delicious! I have created this recipe as part of my collaboration with British Lion Eggs and it really is so simple and can be adapted in many way to add different flavours. Despite the fact that I over did my eggs a little (ooops!), they still tasted great and I plan on making them again and again. If you missed my previous egg recipe, then find out how to make my spicy kale baked eggs here. Not only are these egg cups yummy, but they also look really cool, so if you’ve got… View Post

A slightly different post from me this week… Because I had so many of you commenting on my Instagram posts and people snap-chatting me, asking about the outfits I was wearing whilst at the Azul Yoga & Pilates retreat last week, I’ve put together my yoga wardrobe. If you haven’t read about it yet, then read my Azul Retreat review here. For those who have read it and have seen the many Instagram posts, I’ve created this guide to my yoga wardrobe in case any one fancies an online shopping trip!

As some of you will have seen from my recent Instagram posts, I’ve had the absolute pleasure of spending the past five days at the Azulfit Yoga & Pilates retreat. I often get asked for retreat recommendations, so I’m making it one of my mission this year to bring you reviews of the where I go. First up is my Azul Retreat review… Before I even arrived at Azulfit in Fuerteventura I knew it was going to be a good experience, not only because of the lovely AzulFit staff I’d been emailing, but because my wonderful friend, travel partner and stand-in… View Post

‘Tis the season to get outside with your training and to either start planning or going on a warm holiday or two. This month’s fitness fashion, ‘athleisure’ and general awesome stuff round-up is my selection of the best pieces to take you from beach yoga (yes, Flexi Lexi UK is here!), to surfing and then to brunch for avocado toast… obviously! 😉 I’m currently writing this post from a yoga retreat in Fuerteventura, so I can vouch for a lot of these items, as I’ve been using and wearing a few of them whilst here. I’m yet to get my paws… View Post
