Don’t Stop Moving. Period.

I was fourteen when I started my period. I was late to the party, being the last among my girlfriends to get this ultimate gift of womanhood. I remember being impatient, really wanting it to finally arrive so I could be part of those bonding sessions with the other girls about cramps and hot water...

Nick Knight : #mysecretcity

So remember last week, I told you I was part of a project with American Express to find some hidden gems in London ’cause most of us walk around our cities on ‘urban autopilot’? And then American Express took all these places recommended by some pretty hip bloggers (myself included) and made an awesome map...

Are You on Urban Autopilot?

One great thing about having a dog and recently moving to be closer to work, is that I walk more. I walk a lot. I’m now on my feet an average of 6-8 miles a day (according to my fancy fitness tracker, the Misfit Shine). I am seeing more of the beauty that is London...

Best Outdoor Fitness Spots in London

It’s no secret that I enjoy a good workout (HASHTAG UNDERSTATMENT) and am always looking not only for fun and interesting ways to work out, but also great places to do so.

Bangs Meets Gok Wan

A few week’s ago, as part of Activia’s ‘Feel Good From Within’ campaign, I had the pleasure of meeting their spokesperson, the most lovely Gok Wan. We had tea and cake and spent the afternoon chatting about what makes us feel good (I’m going on record now and saying pretty much all afternoons should go...

Getting Your Groove on With Activia

I’m kinda loving these Activia ‘Feel Good From Within’ video. There are lots of reasons why. Firstly, dancing. I love a good boogie and as a fan of musicals, it’s pretty much my dream that people will spontaneously dance in the streets, so these videos seem like a pretty good start.

Slow Down, Shop Right

Post-Christmas everyone goes a little nuts for the sales. I’m not sure who these people are who start lining up at 2am for the Next sale, but I don’t think I could ever be one of them. I am by no means knocking the urge to get a bargain, but I do think that people...

Layering & Loungewear

I cannot wear my everyday clothes at home. Can’t do it. It’s a ritual of mine, when I get home, jewelry comes off, if my hair’s been down all day, I put it up (& vice versa) and I strip off my outfit in favour of loungewear. I love me some loungewear! The home is...

Overcoming Camera Shyness

Probably since the camera was first invented, there was some woman saying ‘Wait! Let me just retouch my lippy!’ before allowing the shot to be taken. And so, through the ages, women have shied away from the lens and a new study by Photobox confirms that the laydeez are just not fans of the snapshot....
