My NEW Fave Go To Natural Skincare Brand | Balance Me Beauty

I’ve had a skincare routine for as long as I can remember from seeing my Nan and Mum apply there creams and smelling wonderful every night as a little girl. Perhaps that’s why I’m so dedicated to my skincare and find it such a comforting part of my day. My bathroom is full of products, balms, serums, exfoliators, cleansers, sprays, masks, oils and I love trying new ones (so much for clutter free bathroom drawers.) However I know my skin is quite sensitive so I tend to always go back to my faves that I use consistency but this year I have discovered a new natural brand that is taking over my bathroom…

Create Your Own Honest Garden Pilates Sanctuary

Last week I was lucky enough to teach perhaps one of my favourite classes to date as a Pilates Instructor. It was at The Honest Garden which was a little pop up on the Southbank for Honest Tea which are a super yummy organic cold tea brand. They have launched three new flavours including my favourite lemon and honey (I mix it with spirulina at home which is so much nicer than water.) It was one of the most beautiful days in London last Friday, blue skies, a speckle of clouds, very warm, a light breeze and all at 7am!! It wasn’t cold at all! We overlooked the Thames and St Paul’s and got down to practice on our mats.

A WEEKLY VLOG | London Life, What Matters To You and Vegan Cheese!

lottie murphy pilates vlog
The true secret of happiness lies in taking genuine interest in all the details of daily life. I’ve always wondered why I enjoy watching vlogs, filming my little vlogs and editing them so much and I think that quote sums it up. I admit I love watching my faves on youtube go about their daily lives, seeing what they eat and just pottering around really. Some of my faves include Louise Roe, Niomi Smart, The Anna Edit, Carly Rowena and Venetia Falconer. It’s actually quite lovely that we can find such interest in the details of our daily lives. So without further a do, I was inspired to vlog again. This week involved lots of lovely Pilates classes, teaching a press event for the Sainsburys My Hair Matters launch, lots of sunshine, a trip to the theatre, a girly sleepover and what’s in my cupboards…

Live The Retreat Way Every Day

Retreat life is all about stepping away from everyday stresses and immersing yourself in the ultimate self care routine from waking up to going to sleep. I might only grab time for a 45 minute Pilates session, a quick smoothie catch up with a friend or a 5 minute cleanse tone and moisturise in the evening during my day to day life but on retreat, well my retreats anyway, we completely soak up every opportunity to take care of ourselves and the schedule is basically like my perfect day from start to finish. From how we move, what we eat and everything in between so I thought I’d give you a little insight into a day in the life of my most recent retreat with Our Retreat and who’s to stop you incorporating some things into your every day life or at least once a week, you can make any day a retreat day…
