Where Does All Your Love Go?

Where Does All Your Love Go?

Last year I experienced my life changing in a way I never imagined. I separated from the man I married and had spent six years of my life with.

Whilst dealing with the sadness and sense of loss as a result of our separation, I wondered daily how I would cope without the support and love I had grown to rely on. How would I be strong enough without the person who gave me the strength to face the storms?

A Family 'Escape the City' Adventure

A Family 'Escape the City' Adventure

It’s 5:30am on a freezing cold Saturday morning in early January, and I’m driving a people carrier full of my favourite people out of London and in search of adventure. “Is it too early for this?” I ask, as I put one of my favourite songs on the car stereo. It’s a dance floor filler kind of song, but they love it. In the car with me I have four of my female cousins; Martha aged 9, Ella age 14, Georgia age 17, and Alex age 25. All of them said YES to waking up in - what felt like - the middle of the night and coming on an adventure with me. I love it when people say yes.

“Are you ready to feel like James Bond?” I asked Alexis as we climbed on our snow mobile. It was 7pm as we headed off into the wilderness for our adventure in Swedish Lapland with Discover The World.

After two hours of driving, we stopped off at a hut in the woods to eat dinner. “When do you ever get to do something like this?” I asked him later that evening as we were staring up at the sky hoping for a glimpse of the Northern Lights. “I know, I feel so incredibly lucky to be here, this really has been the trip of a lifetime.”

A Whirlwind Winter Sports Weekend in Austria

A Whirlwind Winter Sports Weekend in Austria

As the plane touched down in Salzburg, Charlie Watson – aka The Runner Beans – and I were squealing with delight. The snow was dumping big time in Austria. Our home for the next three days was a ski chalet in the heart of Saalbach, Hinterglemm. A magical, beautiful and buzzing town in the Austrian Alps. The purpose of our trip was to be part of #StoryBase2017. Set up by the Saalbach tourist board, the concept was to showcase everything this valley has to offer the winter sports enthusiast.

It’s January but I don’t have my s**t together. Help!

It’s January but I don’t have my s**t together. Help!

I find this time of year hard. The internet is awash with people imparting their inspirational wisdom and top tips for helping you get more in your life of whatever it is you may feel you are missing. More healthy living habits, mindfulness, learning, career progression, fitness…. The list goes on.

But what if despite all the advice out there you don’t have a perfect list of goals to smash out 2017, or are struggling with motivation and all the pressure is making you feel a bit anxious? Don’t worry, you are not alone! I feel exactly the same, yet I am not anxious about it and I want to explain why.

Sunrise Cycle

Sunrise Cycle

It’s 6am and my alarm clock is piercing the silence in my room. I pull back my curtains and have a look at the sky. It’s a clear night and that makes my heart jump a little. It’s exactly what I was hoping for. I pull on the kit* I laid out last night, plait my hair and go downstairs to find my bike. My tyres are pumped, water bottle filled, everything is ready for my sunrise cycle. I planned everything to make leaving the house this morning as easy as possible. In this blog I share my top three tips to help you plan your sunrise cycle.

“No-one actually likes the taste of green tea” my brother said after I’d placed my order in a local cafe. “Umm… yes they do, I do!” Until three years ago, I felt the same way as him. The only hot drink I ever drank was hot chocolate. I have never drunk tea or coffee and hated the taste of both, along with green tea.

How to Survive World's Toughest Mudder

How to Survive World's Toughest Mudder

24 hours is a long time to do anything, let alone Tough Mudder. I know I'm in for a brutal but (hopefully) epic 24 hours and there's only one thing on my mind, how am I going to survive it?

I’m crouching in the dust with 1500 people in the middle of the Nevada desert. It’s 11:50 and we’re ten minutes away from the start of World’s Toughest Mudder. The aim of the game is to complete as many laps of the five-mile course within the next 24 hours as we can muster.
