May 26, 2017
Processed with VSCO with a5 preset
This was a very  special trip. Early one May morning four fitness bloggers including myself gathered together at Gatwick Airport for the first time, unaware that it would be the start of a beautiful friendship between us all. Not to mention the start of four days in paradise. (Scroll to the bottom of this post to find out who these girls are and where you can follow them! They are a true inspiration.) A three and a half hour flight took us in Kefalonia, the largest island of the Ionian Sea and remarkably untarnished by tourists. Its land is lush and its many beaches exotic, uncrowded and completely breathtaking.… Continue reading...

Last October I was given a chance to extend my summer by a few beautiful hot sunny days at the luxury resort Hillside Beach Club in Fethiye, Turkey. The invitation included a holistic Fitness programme led by founder of That Girl London, Christina Howells and delicious wholesome food by nutritionist Rob Hobson co-author of The Detox Kitchen Bible, (which depicts a multitude of healthy delicious dishes to target health needs, whether that’s losing weight, gaining energy or getting clearer skin) in addition to sampling Hillside Beach Club’s own extensive healthy menu. Alongside other journalists and bloggers, I would get to test drive the hotel’s new “Feel Good Week” aimed at adults who want to revitalise their body and mind with fitness, nutrition and yoga instruction, hiking, spa treatments and a healthy menu of Mediterranean-inspired food.… Continue reading...

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain. March 8th: It was just under two weeks until my 30th birthday and I had no plans. An exciting new work project had meant that I’d had to hold off arranging any celebrations but then a sudden break in my schedule occurred and I was left with a big gaping space in my diary where my 30th birthday stood blankly. 2016 had so far been magical in many ways but very tough in others. Backtrack to last year however and there was only magic.… Continue reading...

A trip to Strattons Hotel, Norfolk

February 11, 2013
My boyfriend Charlie and I  escaped to the flat as a pancake Norfolk country for a weekend of r’n’r, crisp country fresh air, green surroundings and wholesome food. Having left the organisation to the last minute, I scoured Mr and Mrs Smith which came up trumps and I booked a room at Strattons, recommended as ‘Not just a pretty face’ but also highly commended for its ‘restaurant and  eco-policies’. We travelled 1hr 35 minutes by train from Kings Cross to Norfolk, and then 20 minutes by taxi to Strattons Hotel in Swaffam. The short narrow sand-coloured gravel drive is situated discreetly off the main high street, and you instantly see the welcoming grade II listed red brick Queen Anne Palladian villa.… Continue reading...
