Why Am I Doing This Expedition?

This past year, my life as I know it, has completely changed. A bold a and dramatic statement I know but, choosing to apply and being accepted as a candidate on The Apprentice meant that I was effectively taken out of society. I was secluded away from everybody I loved and everything I knew and was institutionalised within the filming of a TV Programme that wasn’t due to be aired…

Are You Sick… Or Have You Just Forgot How to be Human?

WHY in 2018 are we trying to give people ‘magic pills’ then sending them back into the same environment that made them sick in the first place – just to get a quick fix? Chances are, if something doesn’t ‘feel’ right in your gut, then it isn’t right. If you’re upset and feeling down and you don’t know why, strip it back. Are you treating your body well? Are  you…

I Dream of a New Roof.

Close your eyes. Day dream, and where does your mind wander to? I always said to my Mum, if I could do anything in the world, I would talk to as many people in the world and hear as many life stories as possible. I love hearing about people and how different a life can be, yet how similar we all are and how all of us deep down, have…

Happiness hunting in Bali.

The past month, I have been travelling around Bali, immersing myself into different cultures to discover, what is it that makes other countries who seem to have ‘less’ than us, ‘happier’, and what is that secret ingredient? Have we put that much pressure on ourselves in Western society to perform and become ‘successful’, that we’ve forgotten the true meaning of success – to be happy, healthy, with values and surrounded…

Social Media -The Dangerous Currency Killing (or Helping) Women’s Empowerment?

No wonder teenage girls are confused – I’m confused! Last week, I put a picture up on my Instagram of me in a bikini. This week, I have put one up of a generic smiley travel photo. The difference? Likes. Likes. The new currency of our generation. A dangerous one at that. The gains? Money, ‘popularity’, instant reassurance. The cons? Self-criticism, lack of confidence, comparison, a false reality, mental illness.…

16 Ways to Manage Anxiety and Be The Most Successful You

Over the past few months I have been inundated with messages, asking how I manage my anxiety and continue to be productive. Surprisingly, these people have ranged from CEO’s to school children, both male and female, which screams to me that it is a national issue which needs addressing. Here, I’ve written down some of the main methods I use to keep me on track. I hope they can help…

Nothing Grows in a Comfort Zone!

What are your New Year’s Resolutions this year? To give up cigarettes? Chocolate? Alcohol? Now count how many times you have set that as your New Year’s resolution before and how many times you have failed to stick to it. Sound familiar? Deprivation can be a failing formula. Unless you get to the root of what is making you feel unfulfilled and dissatisfied, you will continue to carry out acts…

The Apprenticeship of a Lifetime

As many of you who follow me will know, my business plan is about learning through experiences. Many of us take for granted how much life experiences such as travelling or new adventures can actually help you grow as a person and unlock your potential. This year has been the biggest year of my life in terms of experiences so, as I sit on my bed reflecting on my time…

Dog Eat Dog…. Is it the be all in Business?

We’re now in the final week of The Apprentice, which means the pressure is on to win Lord Sugar’s £250 000 investment… If the interview round is anything to go by. So, I find myself asking this: In Business, what lengths do you have to go to achieve your goals? And, more importantly, what other qualities are vital for success? Integrity In Business, success often comes hand in hand with…

What is next for Jade English?

Well, I can tell you for certain – this is not the last you will see of me. I started my journey of ‘The Apprentice’ almost a year ago now, and, wow, what a roller coaster ride it has been. During the past year, I have done more than I could ever have imagined possible. I ended a long-term relationship, moved to London for two months to compete in The…

  • TAGINE OR NOT TAGINE... Aware I’ve totally recycled this, but I don’t care it’s been my best dad joke all day. Anyhoo. Here’s what I rustled up this Sunday, if you want to make my delish Cous Cous the ingredients are: 
Ainsley Harriet Veg Cous Cous 
Coriander
Harissa 
Peas 
Tomatoes
Rocket 
Pomegranate 
Olive oil
Chillies
Salt 
Pepper

I usually shred chicken or prawns in this and it’s amazing, even if I do say so myself. For the tagine recipe, I’ll post a pic of the recipe book if you’re interested! 
I also just realised whilst writing this that I forgot to put the dark stems of spring onions in 😳

  • So excited to find out the gender of this lucky munchkin!! @hannahlouisevans 👶🏼💙💖💙💖
  • Got invited to an event which was way cooler than I actually am. Here’s a picture of me trying to show off the trainers. It didn’t work after 28393 attempts so I whitened the second one to look remotely better. Still didn’t work. The cocktail matches the jacket and shoes though so that makes me cool, right? Thanks @puma @jdofficial for a great night ✌🏻👟
  • I also really like food, and here, is a picture of my food.
  • For so long I didn’t post what I wanted on social media because I was posting what I ‘thought’ everyone wanted to see, followed by a sea of anxiety. Nooooo thank you! Here’s a picture of a chalk painting that my new mate, named Friend, made this week at Trafalgar Square. We drink coffee together in the morning and he tells me poems. I love him. Oh I also missed #worldmentalhealthday and got annoyed at myself today because of it 🙃 what a world we live in. #hashtagabouthowhashtagsruinourlives
