The women in my community inspire me daily online but even more so when I get to hang out with them in person…

A brunch with friends or sorting out my wardrobe always seems to take priority but I know when I do get in a Saturday or Sunday workout I feel amazing and so much better about the huge pub roast or cocktail night. Recently however, I’ve been so excited and even looking forward to my weekend workout because it’s been powered by two of my favourite brands ever, Neom Organics and Sweaty Betty. They have come together again and created the perfect little kit to make your workout and wellbeing routine absolutely irresistible…
