All The Best Things In Life Getaway At No.15 Great Pulteney Bath Spa Hotel

ghotelroom bath no15greatpulterneystreet lottiemurphyblogger

Sometimes I feel like I’m 26 going on 76 and I even think some 76 years olds live it up a bit more than me. I’ve never been a party animal but I’ve always loved a night out, drinking and chatting the night away in a bar and I have definitely been the last one on the dance floor numerous times but for me, nothing beats a cosy night in too. Being in bed, reading sleep on latex reviews by 9pm with a hot chocolate and a good movie or my book and by the way nothing beats doing this at new boutique hotel and spa No.15 Great Pulteney in Bath with your bestie…

My New Year Resolutions 2018

lottie murphy new year resolution post 2018

Hey guys, happy belated new year. It always takes me a few days to adjust to the new year. New Year’s Day is a bit write off for me and I always feel slightly weird; like I should feel different just because it’s a new year. Really it’s only the day after the 31st December. Plus the over consumption of alcohol the night before doesn’t help that feeling of blurgh (more on that later.) I don’t think I’ve ever really done a new years resolutions blog post and I didn’t actually think I’d even make any this year but I’ve been thinking a lot this first week in January, uh oh! A little reflective perhaps but more about what would really make a difference to my life, to me. There’s a lot of self help material around this time of year which I’m all for dipping in and out of for inspiration but it sometimes takes us a little off track. Oh that girl on Instagram is going to meditate for every day in 2018 I better do that too or your best friend has signed up to do a new hardcore gym and convinced you to join her, but are these resolutions the best for you

Feeling Content: My Five Top Tips

lottie murphy content wellbeing

Feeling content is something I’ve always struggled with but desired to feel more than anything. More than success, love, happiness. The state of being contented with your situation in life. I’m at a stage in my life right now where I feel just that; it’s a feeling for me where things aren’t perfect and don’t even have to be, I’m still striving for personal and career goals, there’s still ups and downs every day, the world’s and life’s struggles are still present but every day life is enjoyable, simple and lovely. It’s a feeling kind of like when everything just clicks, syncs and falls into place. There’s little stress and worry but lots of enjoying the present moment and looking forward to what’s to come. A feeling of loving what you have and you have everything you need and it’s enough.

Keeping Balanced(ish) On A Girls Getaway

Palma is the perfect girly getaway and it’s where four of my best friends and I jetted off to with our 54 bikinis between us last week. We are all into wellbeing and enjoy the feeling of moving our bodies and eating whole nourishing food, we even love doing little group meditations together and have just started to run our own wellness retreats but we also love sharing a bottle of wine, eating our hearts out and laying on the beach for 12 hours reading on holiday. Holiday life is very different to my usual London life, no workout classes or healthy cafes and it’s important to embrace this change and really change up your routine when on holiday but over the years of holidaying, I’ve found there’s ways you can still feel balanced and healthy by end of a getaway just with a bit of a tan and lots of happy memories. Here are my top tips to having a balanced girly getaway; to have fun and let your hair down but not end the week away feeling bloated from booze, stiff from lounging on sun beds and unmotivated to get back to your healthy lifestyle at home…

20 Minute Fun No Equipment Holiday Workout

If you follow me on Instagram you may know that I’m currently on a holiday atm with my best girlies. Emily and I are so used to moving our bodies every day with Pilates and yoga, walking around London teaching and attending classes and we had every intention of starting the day with movement while away. Sometimes too many sangrias and the comfiest beds ever change intentions but something about Monday morning kick started us today.

5 Summer Pilates Moves

We are well and truly into Summer now as the school holidays are here. Whether you’re a working mum, studying or don’t even have a clue the kids are on that 6 week break thing again; change is sometimes just as good as a rest so why not change up your fitness routine and try some Pilates this week. I’ve teamed up with Primark to bring you a Summer Pilates routine for the ultimate full body workout…

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…

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…

Don’t Waste Another Moment

lottie murphy dont waste another moment blog post

When a chapter of your life ends, don’t be sad because it’s over, be happy because without that chapter, you wouldn’t have a story to tell.

Someone once told me that something wasn’t meant for me but that I should hold on because I was someone that had to be sure and ready and wait for the right time. This felt like the most unloving thing I could possibly do so I ignored them. I didn’t wait a moment longer.

Why waste another moment of this life…
