Your Feel Good Pilates Workout

Feel Good Pilates

Whenever I’m feeling a little bit down or low in energy, I know one of the best things to do is to move my body. It doesn’t have to be a full on work out but just some spinal mobility, something to feel my core and some natural flowing movement. This always makes me feel so much better so I thought I’d create a little 10 minute feel good Pilates workout that you can do to boost your energy and mood.

Neals Yard Remedies Portugal Retreat

NYR blog

I’ve always been a huge fan of Neals Yard Remedies so when they asked me to teach Pilates on their luxury retreat in beautiful Portugal it was a dream come true! A real “pinch me” moment! Lagos, is a town in the Algarve that I have actually been to numerous times when I was younger with my family and also with my friends as I got older. I never thought that I’d be coming back to work one day. When I say “work”, I mean teach Pilates overlooking the ocean to inspiring incredible women every day then enjoy delicious healthy meals and breathtaking cliff top walks. Yes, still feel like someone should pinch me! 

How To Make Forever Friendships in Your Twenties

Sometimes you are sitting with friends for life and suddenly realise you don’t connect, you don’t understand why you are meeting for a coffee talking about the same old mundane gossip and you think to yourself what am I doing here, I have nothing to talk to you about. Sometimes you meet people in life and you just click and you’re comfortable with them and you don’t have to pretend to be anyone or anything! I realised pretty early on in my twenties that you don’t need a lot of friends in your life, you just need real ones! 

Comforting Chocolate Porridge

chocolate porridge blog post 2

I feel like I haven’t done a recipe post in ages! If you follow me on Instagram you may know that I needed some comforting this week. I got back from teaching on the Neals Yard Remedies Portugal retreat on Saturday and after being through the door for 15 minutes, I caught my hand on fire from using a hot pan and oil on the hob. I got a bit worked up and panicky of course and went to a&e where they treated me and I now am fashioning a lovely bandaged right hand. Comforting chocolate porridge was needed this morning…

Is comparison stealing your happiness and confidence? In today’s world we are bombarded with perfect images of bodies, lifestyles, homes, holidays, careers, relationships and it can quite frankly make your own little life feel a little poop right. In my new video this week, I just wanted to share with you how I felt about this silly little thing we do, comparing our lives to a snapshot of someone elses and then beating ourselves up for not being perfect…

My Week With A Riverford Recipe Box

Sweetcorn chowder

Did know it’s organic September and for me it’s also a very busy September so it seemed there was no better time to try out a Riverford Organic Recipe Box. Now as much as I love creating new recipes and spending time experimenting in the kitchen, sometimes it’s just hassle free and easy to follow a recipe and to be given the exact ingredients I need for that recipe is just another weight off my busy shoulders. Thank you Riverford Recipe Box…

The Body Event and The Best Muffin Recipe EVER!

The Body post 4_Fotor

Sunday was my fourth The Body event and I can honestly say they have been the best mornings of my year. The Body event is a Sunday morning to boost your body, mind and soul and this September one felt more needed than ever, for me and for my beautiful guests. The group was smaller this time and I felt a overwhelming sense of sisterhood in the Covent Garden hidden gem SIX3NINE which has been the location for the event so far.

I love working out with friends and since I’ve started blogging, I’ve been lucky enough to have made some incredible friends for life who actually like working out with me! The gorgeous bendy Cat Meffan is one of them. We met over a year ago while on a shoot together although I think we may have been stalking each other on instagram for a few months prior to that and we now regularly catch up over juices and yoga mats!
