Summer in LDN | Up at the o2 

I love summer in the city. London has so much going on, there’s always a new place to explore and a new hot spot to eat. As a tourist visiting London, you can grab a map and go see all of the famous landmarks and attractions, but many busy londoners actually never make time to see the city’s best bits. So when I was invited to Up at The O2, a 90-minute climb over the top of London’s O2 arena to celebrate it’s 5th birthday this summer, I was mega excited to see the panoramic views across the capital. When you arrive, you are given a jacket and a safety harness – the harness goes around your waist but also through your legs, so, my top tip would be to wear leggings or shorts (one lady was wearing a floral maxi dress, eek!). You will be also given walking boots, so make sure you bring a pair of socks! Your harness attaches to the walkway, so there is absolutely no way that you could fall …

L.A to London | The Journey

Sometimes I find myself in situations that I can’t put into words. It’s easy to see the most recent chapter in someones life, but there is no context if you haven’t read the whole story. In the past, I’ve had a lot of ‘No’s’ but it really doesn’t matter at all once you get a ‘Yes!’.

JUNE.17 It’s been a busy couple of weeks, here’s what’s been keeping me busy… LIVE CHAT I started the month by hosting a week of live chats on Instagram. Each morning I logged in at 6.45am to share a message of morning motivation. It was pretty cool to answer questions and also to see people logging in from all over the world. If you missed the chats you can read more about it here. Motivating and encouraging people is something that I love and I really want to do more of… watch this space. NYC I packed my bags and flew to NYC with team adidas! It was an incredible trip, we were invited to run alongside 500 runners to raise awareness for a great cause. To save our oceans from plastic pollution. Since coming back home, I’ve been making a huge effort to reduce my use of plastic and to reuse or recycle absolutely everything! Read more about the NYC trip here.  RUNNING Over the last four weeks my running has been very inconsistent. Ever …

6 Reasons to Get Up at 6

Okay, so if you’ve ever watched my Instagram stories, then you’ll already know that most days, I am up and out before 7am. I haven’t always been such an early bird, but over the last eight months, I have witnessed the change in my life due to this one daily practice. Getting up at 6am each day is a game changer! Here’s why … Productivity How many times have you said ‘I don’t have enough time to… read/ workout/ meditate/ etc? We all have busy lives, but we all have the same amount of time each day, it’s just about prioritising what you really want. Whether you are studying, starting your own business, raising kids etc, getting up early will give you some uninterrupted time each day to get #*it done. Make 6-7 your power hour! Less Stress The way you start your morning will have a domino effect on the rest of the day. Most people that are late will say that they ‘absolutely hate being late’. It makes us feel stressed out an …

New York | adidas Parley

‘Through sport, we have the power to change lives’ Andre Maestrini These are the words that I remember when I look back at my recent trip to New York. As a global ambassador for adidas, I was invited to take part in a 5K run to support the amazing work that adidas Parley are doing to help save our oceans. If you don’t know much about adidas Parley you can find out more about it, just click here. I was mega excited to visit New York as I absolutely love the city! I’ve only been once before, just over nine years ago. I really love working with adidas, especially as they are a brand that cares so much about important issues. They are passionate about saving the planet, empowering women through sport, celebrating diversity and changing lives. Team adidas are literally making waves! Over the last three years I have become part of a global running community. Thanks to social media and through taking part in the London marathon, I’ve seen how running can not …

You’re never too old, it’s never too late.

I truly believe that it is never too late to start a brand new chapter of your life. I’m turning thirty later this year and I have huge ambitions of the future. I honestly feel like I’m just getting started! Maybe it’s taken me until now to really figure out what I want to do, how I want to live my life and who I really am. That might sound a little bit lame but bare with me okay… I guess what I mean is that I have a very clear idea now of what I want both personally and professionally, and I’m ready to work mega hard for it. So work wise, I would say I’ve had two careers and endless side hustle jobs. Job number one ; Dancer. When I was nineteen, I graduated from dance college and I was a professional dancer for three years. Before getting a dance job in a musical, I worked in a restaurant, a clothes shop, and I also did a few commercial modelling gigs too. Whilst …
