There’s something magical about the frost outside the windows, the bite in the wind and the wrapping up in a hundred layers! Yes it’s magical for about week and then I’m done. Don’t even get me started on snow, I’ve had my 10 minute snow storm for the year thanks very much. Please stay away! I do try to be positive but I just love the sun and feeling warm and I find it really hard to stay positive when my hands have frostbite, my umbrella has curled up like a dead spider and I’m constantly trying to find the most natural fake tan that makes me look like I’ve been on a winter break to the Maldives. If anyone wants to solve this problem and whisk me there then hi!

week 3 pilates and wellness lottie murphyWoo, we are half way through my Pilates and Wellness Challenge. How’s it going? Perhaps you’ve only managed the workout twice or you forgot the wellness task from week 1, that no phone in bed is a toughy! It’s fine, something is better than nothing but try to really get committed now. Perhaps you’ve got a few nights out booked in or work is crazy busy in the lead up to holiday season but make YOU the priority. Sleep well, eat well and move well! Week 3, let’s go…

So it’s officially the festive season! It’s crazy how quick this year has gone so I thought I’d talk a little bit about time today because I feel like we aren’t that great at using it. In Britain, we spend 25 billion hours a year on things we admit are a bit of a waste, including social media, taking selfies and watching funny animal videos. Oops!

Last week I was lucky enough to be in Ibiza with Our Retreat for a week of training, healthy food, hiking, yoga, Pilates and sunshine. I taught the guests Pilates but was also able to fully immerse myself into the retreat too and soaked up lots of new information. I was really inspired to come back home and take things from retreat life into my busy London life. We can always keep learning, growing and trying to better ourselves especially when it comes to health and wellbeing; this retreat came at a perfect time for me and I wanted to share some nuggets of retreat life with you, check out my vlog too…
