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 …

Bootcamp and Breakfast

Last week I was invited to ‘Bootcamp and Brunch’ at The Wellesley Knightsbridge, a Luxury Collection Hotel, London, with personal trainer Matt Roberts. What a fab way to start the week! I arrived on Sunday evening ahead of the early morning bootcamp. The hotel is absolutely stunning, I stayed in the first floor suite which overlooks London’s Hyde Park. SO nice! Now that is what I call, a room with a view! Morning Miles … 7am. We met Matt in the hotel lounge and we had a brief chat to share our current health and fitness goals. Matt explained the structure of the workout as well as discussing the different training methods that he uses with his clients and at his fitness retreats. Firstly, we laced up and set off to the park for a 5K run. Running before breakfast was a little bit different to what I’m used to. Especially as I training for the marathon earlier this year. Matt encourages fasted cardio in the morning as a tool to aid weight loss. (Personally, my …

REAL TALK

This week I’ve been doing a fifteen minute talk on instagram live each morning at 6.45am. It’s something I’ve wanted to do it for a while because I thought it would be a cool way to share my ideas about self motivation as well as answering questions and having more of a two way chat. Why so early? Personally, I get up early to ensure that I get as much out of the day as I can. If you’re up and getting ready for work/ uni etc, then you can grab your morning coffee and listen at the same time. Maybe you’re not even up but you can watching from the comfort of your duvet. It’s crazy that some people have been watching from the other side of the world! This week we’ve had ‘Hello’s from Dubai, LA and Australia! Let’s spread this positive energy like Nutella on a pancake! 🙂 Let’s talk … Here a little bit of what we’ve talked about so far this week. DAY 1 HABITS – We create habits for …
