Confidence & Self Love.

Last week I was invited by Urban Decay cosmetics to deliver a talk about confidence & self love. Here’s what I had to say… CONFIDENCE IS NOT SOMETHING THAT YOU ARE BORN WITH OR WITHOUT. I believe that confidence is not something that you are born with or with out. It is not a personality trait. Often people mistake the behaviours of outgoing people, it’s easy to assume the if someone is extroverted then they must be confident. However this is not the case. In fact, you can be either an extroverted person or an introverted person, but you can still be confident in yourself, your own abilities and your unique talents. Confidence is actually a skill, and like any skill, it simply requires practice. When we’re growing up and discovering our sense of self, many things can impact our self confidence. Our experiences, our social and cultural influences, and our parents, all play a role in building self confidence.  Many people say that they find public speaking difficult. I myself, used to find it …

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 …

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 …
