How to turn new year’s resolutions into life goals

I hate that old cliché, ‘new year new you’ but as much as I hate its cheesiness, the 1st of January is inevitably the day when you feel you want to change your ways. Whether it’s to quit smoking, work harder, join a gym, eat healthier or even just to see family more often, new year’s resolutions rarely stick….

Dear fit fam, here’s why you should indulge at Christmas time…

During the Christmas season everyone eats a bit more than they usually would, that’s normal. I thought that because I was so happy with my workout and healthy eating routine that I wouldn’t succumb to gorging on comfort food. Well I was wrong! I haven’t gone overboard by any means but after several hot chocolates at…

How to love life when it doesn’t go to plan

We’ve all got an idea of what our perfect life would be like. Whether it’s prancing through LA in a pair of Louboutins,  sending work into the office from the comfort of your Hawaiian beach hut or even just having a bum that could rival the Kardashians’. There are millions of things we could think…

Praying for Paris won’t stop ISIS

Of course, like everyone, the news of the Paris attacks a few days ago threw me into a state of despair as I asked myself “what is going on in the world, why is there so much hate?” But what I was more confused about than the tragedy itself, was how so many people around…

Should we really be worried about the rise in female violence?

The short answer is no. As much as BBC Three think that we should be and aired their documentary two nights ago to highlight the so-called issue, I don’t see what all the fuss is about. There is no significant rise in female violence, well that’s what I took from the documentary even though it clearly…

Is the LDNM Bikini Guide right for you? I’m not so sure about me

So I’ve come to the end of week four which calls for more progress pictures. How exciting! Well, it would be if I didn’t have this nagging feeling that this plan just isn’t the right one for me. In my previous posts I revealed my little indulgences (like the three meals I ate out in restaurants all…

Review: Gino kicks off his Italian Escape tour in Roman city of Bath

Last night Gino D’Acampo launched his new Italian Escape tour to a packed venue in Bath. Scores of women (mainly over 50 years of age) crammed The Forum in anticipation for the much loved Italian stallion. No one knew what to expect. We knew that of course there would be some cooking involved in the show but…

World’s worst place to be a woman? Yes, without a doubt!

[Update: I’ve now launched my petition to force the government of Honduras to prosecute the men who are killing women every day. Please sign it by clicking here.] Last night BBC Three really outdid themselves. At first glance the title ‘World’s worst place to be a woman?’ doesn’t suggest just how dangerous and downright hellish…

What a turnaround: Week three of the LDNM Bikini Guide (take two)

They say it takes three weeks for something to become a routine and after this week I can definitely vouch for that theory. This week was my second attempt at the third week of the LDNM Bikini Guide V3 and it was a completely polar opposite experience to what I went through the first time….
