I honestly can’t stand the phrase “New Year, New Me!” – and yet here I am relaunching and rebranding my Blog at the start of January. A fresh start, a new beginning…. Well maybe, but this is definitely something I’ve been thinking of for a… Read More »Happy New Year, Happy New Blog?
This time last year I was just beginning my journey to a new smile with Invisalign, and whilst I had seen the 3D generated images of how my new smile would look by 2021 on the screen, I really had no idea of quite how… Read More »2021…. The Year I smile more – thanks to Invisalign! #ad
|If there’s one thing the past few months have shown us, it’s that home fitness is for life – not just for lockdown. At the start of 2020 who could have envisaged workouts on your bedroom floor, let alone being able to take classes with some of your favourite instructors without leaving your house?! With so many people becoming huge converts to working out and taking classes at home, this is the perfect time for a new, exciting indoor fitness brand to launch – and so I’d love to introduce you to Apex Rides. |
Last month saw us celebrate World Chocolate Day, and so I decided to experiment in the kitchen to create a vegan chocolate cookie recipe – and I’ll be honest, I liked it so much I just thought I’d share it with you guys! Easy to make, easy to adapt to your own taste, and from my expert tasting panel (my husband and our neighbours…!) very well received! This recipe also allowed me to use one of my fave vegan chocolate treats – Miiro peanut chocolates (and these were very kindly #gifted to me by Miiro).Read More »Recipe: Vegan Chocolate Chip and Oat Cookies
As you guys know, I am currently on my Invisalign UK journey – after years of being so unhappy with my crooked teeth I am finally working on straightening them and getting the smile I’ve always wanted. And there’s one person I couldn’t do this without,… Read More »Dentist vs Orthodontist – or how to find the right people to fix your smile! #ad
As you know if you’ve been following me for a while, my fitness journey has spanned many years, and has seen me completely transform the way I look and feel. Whilst not easy or quick, with hard work and determination I’ve been able to get myself to a place where I finally feel confident about my body and what it can do, and knowing that I’ve done this with my own dedication and discipline makes it all the more rewarding.Read More »#ad From Fitness Journey to Smile Journey with Invisalign UK
It can be said for so very many things in life that you “don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone”- and for me, sadly, this once upon a time included my hair. As a child I had long, thick, and quite frankly unruly hair, and as a teenager I did as most teens do and experimented with several different hair colours. I always looked after my hair though, which is why the shock and stress of suffering hair loss a few years back hit me so hard. So just how did I go from finding handfuls of hair on my pillow to getting my thick mane back?

Holidays, weekends away and time off seem like something you should have in abundance once you become a self-employed freelancer. However the reality is getting and taking time off happens much more rarely than it did even when I worked a corporate desk job – as a freelancer you get programmed to think that time is money, and in turn time off is money lost. In my line of work it can also be tricky to keep clients on track in your absence, as well as finding reliable cover for fitness classes.
There are a couple of things in life that are hugely important to me – keeping my body operating in tip top condition to support my extremely active lifestyle, and trying to put things that are as natural as possible into my body. So when I was offered the chance to try herbal joint supplement Flexiqule I was curious to give it a go and see if it really did help support my joint mobility and flexibility – something that is pretty much key in my line of work as a trainer and instructor.
I couldn’t be more delighted at the Summer we’ve been having here in the UK this year, because as you’ll probably know, I am an absolute sun worshipper and love to make the most of good weather because I’m one of those annoying people who tans easily, and I truly believe I look about 300% better with a suntan. However with my crazy work hours it hasn’t always been possible to get out and into the sun to maximise my tanning time over the past couple of months – so in order to help me maintain the Summer glow I’ve been working on whenever I do get the chance – I’ve been using a couple of products to help me along the way and I thought I’d share my not-so-secret tanning tips with you.
