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 …

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 …

The latest …

There’s been so much going on over the last few weeks so here’s an update on what I’ve been up to lately … I flew to Stockholm to celebrate International Women’s Day. I went to visit my friend Hannah and to lead a fitness class in her brand new studio! Hannah is a fellow adidas ambassador and we first me last September in Copenhagen. I had previously followed Hannah on Instagram (obvs). Her account, @fashionablefit is a mixture of stylish three striped workout gear, empowering messages and Hannah looking so damn sexy & strong! I was joined by my fit pals Hayley and AJ, two ladies that totally inspire me, both for different reasons. The whole trip left me feeling like a total girl boss! I still can’t believe that my life now involves casually hopping on a plane for a thirty six hour trip to Europe. All because of this blog and social media. I’ll write a separate post about my thoughts on this maybe. I ran the North London Half Marathon! I was …

Back To Basics

As a lover of fashion and all things stylish, I often find myself standing in my bedroom, staring at my wardrobe feeling unimpressed and frustrated. First world problems, I know. Like so many women, I actually have far too many clothes, shoes, coats and bags to even fit into a wardrobe! I have different cloths for different occasions/seasons/moods etc, an eclectic mix of denim shirts, tailored trousers, pleated skirts, logo jumpers and way to many navy and striped t-shirts. Not to mention those items that I never wear but still love too much to throw out. It’s a mess! Every so often I sort through the rails and I donate any unwanted clothes to the local clothes bank or charity shop. I can be pretty ruthless once I get going but I still end up in the same situation a few months later, and yet ‘I have nothing to wear!’ Okay so it’s Saturday morning, it’s an hour before we are supposed to be leaving the house, I’m standing in our bedroom semi nude with a …

#LFW 17

So, I haven’t posted an outfit post in absolutely ages!! Lately my life has been taken over by running and run chat. [Yeah, training for a marathon will do that.] So, I was mega happy to receive an invitation to this years Charli Cohen show at London Fashion Week. It was the perfect excuse to hang out with my girl friends, go to some fun blogger events and of course pap that #ootd . . .  Photos by @redagencylondon FYI I definitely didn’t need to wear these sunnies as it’s February. Come on spring, we’re all ready for you! Initially, I thought I may have gone a little OTT with the big coat, big hair + sunglasses combo, but then I thought hey it’s LFW! Too much? Never.Outfit.

Jamie Oliver #TellTheresa

This morning I was invited to attend a talk with Jamie Oliver to discuss child hood obesity and the governments new ‘Plan for Action’. The panel was presented by channel 4’s Jackie Long. Jamie was also joined by Dr Dawn Harper, Olympic gold medalist, James Cracknell and Justine Roberts, CEO & Founder of Mumsnet. Jamie has been campaigning for the government to do more to tackle this national health problem. He wants to ensure that parents are well informed about nutrition, as well as suggesting that the government should bring in laws for food suppliers and manufactures, that will help us all to make healthier food choices. Earlier this year the government released their strategy for ‘Childhood Obesity : A plan for action‘ which was created to significantly reduce childhood obesity and to implement radical change across the country. However, the strategy has been hugely criticised and described as a ‘diluted version’ of what campaigners had hoped for. Jamie Oliver is featured in tonight Dispatches programme on channel 4, he speaks very passionately about his …
