WELLNESS CITY BREAK TO BATH!

Last weekend, I voyaged westward to Bath for a distinctly British wellness escape. For years, I’d sampled the Instagram candy that was geotagged from this beautiful Georgian city, once revered by the Romans as the only hot springs in the UK – but this was my first IRL trip. VisitBath asked me to pop down for a […]

5 POST-RUN STRETCHES!

Stretching your lower body after a run isn’t just ‘nice-to-do’, it’s essential. You claim an array of benefits including the reduction of tightness in your largest muscle groups, alleviation of potential pains (including DOMS and the dreaded knee pain), the correction of muscular imbalances and even the improvement of actual running technique! Of course stretching […]

A WELLNESS RETREAT AT CORINTHIA LONDON…

London is arguably one of the world’s greatest cities, but living and working here, Londoners can become blind to its rare brilliance. Precious gems like Trafalgar Square, Parliament, The London Eye, The Mall (etc), are casually tarred with the ‘tourist’ brush, and avoided for fear of disrupting ‘the daily mission’. It’s a superfast-paced city in which to work and live… but […]

THE BEST SOUP YOU’LL EVER MAKE ?

It’s February already, which in England means that statistically, it’s raining 60% of the month and the average temperature is a mere 5 degrees. So it’s cold,  it’s wet, and the lack of sunshine adds insult to injury! Amidst this gloom, what could be better than a piping hot, hearty home-made soup to defrost your […]

HARRODS x FITNESS ON TOAST!

I’ve written previously about how the high street is quickly transforming itself into an involving, curated experience with department stores leading the way; what was once a drab array of shopfronts shifting stacks of ‘inventory’ has been magically re-imagined into museums of retail, dusted with both technology and human intrigue, in equal measure. There are digital installations, interactive experiences, […]

CRUISE CONTROL – ACTIVE!

Last year, almost 23 million people on this planet boarded a cruise liner for their holiday, and every year, another 1.6 million more people will catch on. It’s twice as popular in the US as it is in Europe, so much so that a whopping 5% of their population casts off every single year! Aside […]

SLEEP YOURSELF STRONGER!

This Monday is known as Blue Monday, a statistically miserable day by virtue of things like rain, dark, cold, work, abandoned resolutions, fatigue etc. I recently attended a fascinating TEDx talk by Professor Adrian Williams, a 30-year-practised leading authority on Sleep, based at London’s Guy’s & St Thomas’ hospital; I was reminded of sleep’s unsung value to our lives.

WATCH THIS!

18 months has raced by since the very first Apple Watch appeared on hipster wrists the world over, and now Series 2 has hit the company’s long, wooden sales tables. I really loved that first version, and posted a super in-depth review of it HERE on a trip to the Maldives – which as an aside, remains the most breathtaking place I’ve […]

FESTIVE SCANDI SKYR DESSERT

Winter descended long ago, and memories of cooling summer desserts shimmer in the distant heat haze. Poetic interlude aside, my way of dealing with that is to meet it head-on and embrace the frost! So ahead of  Christmas, here’s my seasonally-on-point, festive Scandinavian-inspired Skyr dessert recipe! It uses generous dollops of a thick, luxuriant Icelandic all-natural […]

BEHIND THE SCENES – HOW TO WRITE YOUR BOOK !!!

Cards on the table; I wasn’t born an author, and despite these bloggish scribblings, the thought of writing a book hadn’t even occurred on a post-hypnotic, unconscious, or inebriated level! The journey to writing my book Fit In 3: The Scandi Plan [it’s out on dec 29th, it would mean the world if you pre-order a copy!] was a […]

DOUBLE BERRY + CHOCOLATE CREPES!

Last weekend I experienced tidal waves of cravings for some delicious crepes! A totally inexplicable impulse, but I had to do something about it! My solution [this recipe] takes practically no time at all (10 minutes), uses just 5 ingredients (all of which I already had in my cupboard) and requires no culinary finesse whatsoever! It’s a super […]
