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.

“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.

Get Stoked: Winter Is Coming!

Get Stoked: Winter Is Coming!

With December on the horizon and the feel of this crisp Autumn air, my thoughts drift to the mountains and my brain whirrs with the lure of winter adventures. 

I’ve lived in London all my life, but a few years ago I decided to quit my job and move to Chamonix, in the heart of the French Alps. A place that had truly captured my heart and adventurous soul over previous years.

Whilst living in Cham, with the mountains on my doorstep, I had the opportunity to learn new sports and today I want to share with you my favourite winter adventures. 

While You Were Sleeping

While You Were Sleeping

Three years ago I quit the rat race in search of creating a new story. I dared myself to believe there was a way to live a more adventurous life, to fill my days with the things that feed my soul and people that lift me higher. I dreamed of travelling, of being an explorer in every sense of the word, and spending more time in nature.

Mum and daughter time is incredibly special and although we live together, we often pass each other like ships in the night. We talk about practical things a lot; she helps me with business dilemnas and decisions and helps me when I need someone to practise my talks with. But we don’t make enough time just to relax with each other and have fun.

Why I ran the London Marathon in Body Paint

Why I ran the London Marathon in Body Paint

On Sunday 24th April I ran the Virgin London Marathon dressed head-to-toe in body paint displaying inspirational messaging and patterns. Starting at 4am, the talented Jules from Bentley Body Art started first with the paint, then with the messages, patterns and finally, glitter and a few gems. As the paint went on, I grabbed my phone and wrote the words which flowed from me.
