You know that feeling, when you’ve been on an air conditioned plane for eleven hours, and your face feel like a dried fruit! If you’ve landed somewhere hot, you’ll  need to use sun cream and then you get a breakout, just in time for your first holiday selfie! I’m thirty years old, surly I’ve had my lifetime number of spots already! After a lot of trial and error, I’ve got my routine down…

Earlier this month I visited Cape Town for the first time. To be totally honest, I didn’t know very much about South Africa and it wasn’t somewhere that I’d ever considered adding to my travel wish list. A few days before Christmas, I got the confirmation of the shoot dates and location from the adidas running team. We were going to be in Cape Town for five days to film a spring summer running campaign. Excitement overload! 🙂 I mentioned the trip to a few a people and I received two different reactions. Some of the first things I heard were, ‘Oh, be careful, it’s not a safe place to visit!’, the next thing I heard was ‘Oh my gosh, it’s incredible! You will absolutely love it! A lot of places have a reputation of being unsafe for tourists, especially for women, and it can be off putting for sure. As I was traveling with a group I felt assured that it would be fine. Cape Town is a very popular travel destination and like …

I spent last weekend at Boardmasters festival on the beautiful Cornish coastline. As a total festival newbie, I didn’t really know what to expect, I’ve never even camped overnight in a tent before, but as always I was optimistic and pretty excited about the trip. I borrowed a tent from a friend, bought myself a sleeping bag and immediately messaged the girls to see who would be up for a 600 mile round trip. I set off at 5.45 am and picked up AJ and Tara in London at 7am. I was totally loving the road trip vibes, the car chat was hilarious and we arrived at midday feeling good. (by good, I mean I was glad to be out of the car, starting to get hungry and needing the loo) All we had to do now was locate the box office, collect our tickets and wrist bands, drive to another car park, unload the car, queue to get in, oh and pitch up a tent. No problem! Okay fast forward two hours and we’re …

As a family of three, this year was our third visit to the beautiful island of Sardinia. The Italian lifestyle is so good for your soul! We spent a week enjoying the sunshine, delicious food and beautiful beaches. We explored the old town on foot as well as hiring bikes for a day. We discovered the local delis, markets and of course the most amazing gelato shops! There are so many reasons to add Sardinia to your travel hit list, here are some of our favourites . . . Tre Archi Pizzeria Italy is of course home to the most loved food in the world . . . Pizza! There are literally pizzerias on every street in Sardinia but head to Tre Archi for an authentic homemade slice of cheesy heaven. There’s football on the TV and red wine on every table. A huge pizza will cost you just €8! Note – Like many restaurants in Sardinia, Tre Archi doesn’t open until 8pm in the evening. We usually eat dinner around 6pm at home, so …
