Don’t Just Go Through It, Grow Through It.

A lot of you may look at me at face value and think that I’ve got it all sussed out. Well I’m here to tell you, I don’t. And I think more and more men and women deemed ‘successful’, should be less afraid to come out and show their vulnerabilities, because at the end of the day, who cares? We’re all human. What many of you won’t know is that…

MINDFULNESS: WHY IT’S THE KEY TO A STRONGER, BETTER YOU.

Life can be tough, no matter who you are. We’re all busy rushing, eyes fixed on the task in hand and don’t always give ourselves the space to pause and think about how we are. Sound familiar? As a nation, us Brits constantly try to maintain that ‘stiff upper lip’ and plough on because it’s the ‘done’ thing. And it’s the same in business; if we’re having a particularly challenging…

The Power of Self-Belief.

Have you ever thought that you aren’t good enough to do something? Be it an individual task, job promotion or even starting your own business? Have you ever stopped yourself from taking a risk, or trying something different simply due to the fear of failure? Time and time again the phrase ‘I can’t do that’ has entered my mind, be it years ago when applying for my first job as…

Women are speaking up Worldwide… and it’s about time.

48% of employed women have been sexually harassed at work according to the New Street Journal. The BBC Radio 5 Live Presenter, George Riley, has been suspended from the show following complaints from female members of staff. The Conservative Party staff members have compiled a list of 36 current Tory MPs who have either had affairs with Junior Colleagues or behaved inappropriately towards women, with some even using prostitutes. Yesterday’s…

Ever struggled with your self-esteem? Help me raise funds for Girls Out Loud! 

With the influence of social media and increasing societal pressures, girls as young as 5 are now worrying about their image – with a massive 80% of ten year olds dieting in a bid to change their body shape.   That’s why I’m supporting Manchester based Social Enterprise, Girls Out Loud, which works hard to raise the aspirations of young girls between the ages of 13 -18 UK wide and…

Why I’m Going to Stop Saying Sorry.

Since watching the trailer for the third episode, I have done nothing but worry about how I’m going to be portrayed. Will I come across as too bossy, too opinionated or just an outright bitch? So as I sat down to start writing a ‘nice’ article about how ‘nice’ I am to show my softer side, I stopped and realised, why should I be ashamed for having an opinion? Two…

Why I chose the name Graphene

It’s D day. You’ve been preparing as much as you can for the unknown world of telly and before you know it, there you are, sat around the meeting table at the house,gazing awkwardly at each other, surrounded by cameras for the first time in your life, trying to come up with that all important team name that will forever remain throughout the series. “A,B, C, D…” I repeatedly went…

Should We Invest in Life Experiences Over Education?

In a time where England boasts some of the most expensive university tuition fees in the world, I pose a question to you. Should young adults start investing their money into life experiences more so than education? And flip that on its head, could they in fact learn just as much from doing so? Of course, education is important, and we are extremely lucky to live in a country where…

Is The Digital Age Making us Instant Gratification Addicts?

Is the digital age making us instant gratification addicts? When was the last time you had to wait for something? And I don’t mean wait for the next iPhone to come out, wait an extra thirty seconds for a web page to open or wait for that dream body to arrive after eating healthily for a solid 24 hours! I mean truly wait. Wait how your grandparents had to wait…

  • Thank you @nxtep_personal_training for helping me find balance over the last few weeks! 
I think this is probably the first time in my life I’ve pretty much eaten what I want and trained without feeling guilty and still managed to see results. I feel SO much happier and healthier within myself for finally getting the kick up my arse to train again. Thank you thank you thank you - you are THE best!! Can’t recommend @t_fozzy @jkmhackwell @Davi d_bell_1989 and the uber friendly and professional team enough x

  • “Your body will be around a lot longer than that expensive handbag. Invest in yourself”. Thank you my legendary PT and friend @jkmhackwell for another fab session this morning! I’ve found getting fit on my own so hard over the last year, trying to balance work and health so I decided to get some help and haven’t looked back! I’m still eating pretty much what I want and although I know that won’t create the ‘quickest’ results, I love how @nxtep_personal_training understand that the lettuce life is not sustainable or fun and I looove how much stronger and healthier I feel! 💪🏻🙌🏻🙋🏼‍♀️Thank you team!!
