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 …

Social Media Hacks

Whether you’ve just started a personal blog or you’re using social media to promote your business or brand, we all know that in 2017, social media is important. The online world is fast and it’s 24/7 so it can be hard to keep up, but, you don’t need to spend every hour of everyday on your phone…

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 …

#TheLatest

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 …

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 …
