  • Basically eating a version of this salad with lentils, berries, feta, balsamic and olive oil all the time at the moment! Truth be told I'm not as bothered about fancy recipes or food in general as much as I used to be. As a former food obsessive I see that as a good thing - I'm more than happy to eat the same thing often as long as it tastes lush of course!

  • In love with @doisyanddam chocolate at the moment and seeing as I'm on day one of my cycle, self care = chocolate! 
Clearly I'm not the only one that loves this too! .

  • When was the last time you treated yourself to new underwear? Sexy and comfortable bras are ultimate self care and self love for me, treated myself to this @freyalingerie baby yesterday. Just because they don't get seen a lot doesn't mean they should be anything less gorgeous than the clothes you wear on the outside ⭐️

  • B E  Y O U R  O W N  E X P E R T ⭐️
So on the blog today I had a bit of a rant and talked about how I've been feeling recently - fucking pissed off and a bit down in the dumps basically - but what that has helped me do, sitting with those shitty messy feelings, is figure out how I need to challenge myself next. One of the things that came up for me was being my own expert. 
Let's face it, the internet is full of people who are experts in something or other - but you know what? No one will ever be more of an expert in you than YOU. Question everything. Question everyone. Learn from people but let that knowledge sit in your body and see what feelings come up. Speaking from experience I think it's a never ending journey this learning to trust yourself, listening to your inner guidance system and acting on it, tuning in to discipline sometimes and then tuning into kindness most of the time (of course). Remember to do you, wholeheartedly, and you won't go far wrong ✨

  • I T ’S  O K  T O  B E  W I L D 🌱
This is a corner of my garden which is utterly and totally wild. We tried to tame it, but it just kept fighting back and now I can really see the beauty of the weeds spilling over everywhere, the overgrown cherry tree and the clover covered long grass. A good reminder that it’s ok to be wild and wonderful ⚡️

  • The last month or so has been a bit of a rough ride for me. 
How is it that only when you’re coming out the other side can you see how hard its been? I’ve been unmotivated, tired, uninspired and had lost all excitement for life, which is the polar opposite of what I’m usually like. I’ve felt like I’ve been living at the bottom of the sea for a while and only now am I starting to resurface. The biggest thing I’ve learned from this though, is that it’s ok not to be ok sometimes. Exploring the shadowy bits of myself that this has brought up has been healing and it’s plain to see what my next steps are. Let me tell you, when those first tingles of excitement come back, that’s the best feeling ever ✨

  • Up on the blog today I'm sharing my day with @icelandfoods last week for their Christmas in July event which was a bit odd in 30c heat - but I got to sample some amazingly tasty dishes and was throughly impressed! Check out the link in my profile for more #IceXmas17 #PowerOfFrozen #ad
  • Feeling all kinds of gratitude for my work these days. Pinched this pic taken by @harri_rose_ for the @thebalanceclub Insta of me interviewing @happilicious.co.uk for the club members. 
We had such a truthful conversation about body positivity and some of the totally screwed up stuff we'd experienced in the past relating to diets and our bodies. Love properly connected and real convos like this and proud I can offer that to @thebalanceclub members ✨

  • Spent some time yesterday making up some new playlists (not procrastinating at all of course 🙈) - music can completely flip my mood so I see it as a form of self care!
Also joining the gym this week so need some tunes for that - anyone else's music taste completely different when it comes to music to work out to? 🎧✨
