How To Make Forever Friendships in Your Twenties

IMG_7013_Fotor

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! 

The One Thing Stealing Your Happiness

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

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…

What I Eat In A Day – Healthy And Sustainable

I filmed a little What I Eat In A Day video, as I know one of the hardest things people find when it comes to healthy eating is recipe ideas and also they struggle on days when you need meals to be quick and hassle free. I filmed this last week and was feeling really tired so just wanted to make quick easy meals. Healthy eating and the real way to happiness and body confidence is to adopt a diet that you can sustain with no restrictions…

Touch Your Toes At 90!

Sitting for 12 hours a day then doing a 20 minute run just isn’t enough to achieve a healthy functional body until old age! As much as I love that Pilates will get you a lean toned physique and perky bum, it’s also the most functional form of exercise. Functional exercise means training the body for exercises performed in every day life. Now what do most of us do all day in every day life? Sit at a desk, drive, get stressed, run, stand squished on a tube? We don’t tend to love our bodies or take care of them.

Down In The Dumps

Like a bad hair day, sometimes we can wake up a little down in the dumps for no reason at all! I haven’t really felt myself the last couple of days and have been a little down in the dumps on some days for the last few weeks. Some people have even noticed and asked if I’m okay which was at first making me feel really uneasy and defensive. I’d beat myself up for letting people see that I was a bit groggy and not my usual positive bright self but sometimes I just can’t help being a little subdued.

How To Have A Healthy Heatwave

Wowee, it’s definitely Summer! How exciting and how…hot! Is anyone else really hot? Not complaining! Not complaining! I thought I’d do a little post on some tips to stay healthy during the heatwave when it comes to exercise, food and general wellbeing. Of course we all want to be drinking Pimms in a pub garden and that is certainly what I’ll be doing come the weekend

If You Try To Be Something You’re Not, You’ll End Up Being Nothing.

If you try to be something you’re not, you’ll end up being nothing.

I’ve recently had a little bit of a talking to myself. It happened after something my amazing boyfriend said to me after I posted something on instagram. It made me stop and question am I really staying true to me and showing who I really am on social media or am I being influenced by others, others with say more followers/more opportunities.
