My Winter Skincare Routine

Over the last few years I’ve tried a ton of different skin care routines, and I’ve figured out exactly what works for my skin. During the winter months I know that I need to hydrate my skin as much as possible. Running outside in the cold in the morning and spending time indoors with heating on, can really dry my skin out, so here are my golden rules when it comes to winter skin care… Oil is your friend and it will NOT cause breakouts! I used to be afraid to put oil on my skin because I thought it would make my skin oily and cause spots. Ironically it has the exact opposite effect. In fact, using oil on my skin has been SO good for it. I use natural oils, like coconut oil and macadamia nut oil every night during winter. Apparently it’s anti ageing too! (FYI I did get asked for ID over Christmas, when buying red wine in Sainsbury’s, so maybe it’s because of the coconut oil! hahah) The best way …

More Ways To Eat Well

I know that a lot of people are taking on Veganuary but by now you might be starting to lack motivation. So, I’ve teamed up with Iceland to showcase more ways to eat well… Here are my 5 Tips for staying motivated and on track with #Veganuary 1. Be prepared! When I’ve got a mega busy week, I plan ahead and makes sure that my fridge and freezer are both stocked with loads of fruit and veggies. That way it’s super quick and easy to make a smoothie in the morning before I go out. 2. Mix it up! Food should be fun, so if you’re getting bored of eating veggie chilli, try making some new recipes. Experiment with new ingredients that you don’t usually buy. I recently bought corn on the cob, which I don’t often buy, Jude absolutely loved them so now I’m adding them to our trolly every week. 3. Less waste! Eating vegan doesn’t need to be expensive. I think there is a common assumption that eating a vegan diet costs …

Highlights of 2017

2017 has been jam packed and non stop! I started the year with a pretty clear vision and lots of ambitious plans, but somewhere along the way I got a little distracted. Luckily, I figured it out pretty quickly (with a little help from my girls) and I’m heading towards the end of the year feeling more focused than ever before. Here’s a recap, some thoughts and  highlights of 2017… RUNNING At the start of the year, I literally hit the ground running. After going through IVF treatment and a heartbreaking miscarriage at the end of 2016, I really needed to focus on something else, I wasn’t exactly sure what to do, but I really wanted to commit my energy and focus into a new goal. Two weeks into the year I was offered a place in the London Marathon by the adidas UK team and I didn’t hesitate to say yes! A few days later, I started to consider the reality of not only the marathon itself, but, also the four months of preparation …
