Ok, I know what you’re thinking. Summer is over. Well and truly. The main tells being the fact that it’s always cloudy, seriously cold (is it me or have we suddenly had to get our winter coats out) and it rains. ALL. THE. TIME. But a couple weeks ago it was different. Everyone was talking about a late Indian summer (let’s not go into how wrong they were!), and this is when I got to go to the coolest type of party – a pool party! Yes you read that right. I was one of the lucky people to get picked to attend the Fitness First Summer Pool Party! And it was just as cool as it sounds. After a quick tour of the gym…

Gluten Free is a way of life for many and a lifestyle choice for some. Me, I’m extremely interested in nutrition and so when I was invited along to the Genius event at L’Atelier de Chef to learn about Genius’ new generation of bread,  additional products to the range, and to do some cooking, I had to go. Well food is one way to my heart!  Lucinda, founder of Genius, greeted us all, and gave a short presentation on how genius came about (such a lovely story about wanting to make the best bread for her son who’s coeliac!), how much the market for gluten free has grown in the last couple years and all about the new generation of loaves, and their other new…

On Wednesday from 7am until 7pm MacMillan Cancer Support held a pop-up art installation in Paddington, as part of their ‘Not Alone’ campaign to raise awareness of the loneliness cancer patients feel, and I went along to see what it was all about. Naturally intrigued by art and creativity, but also by what they would do to raise awareness for such a moving and touching subject – most people will know of someone who is/has suffered from cancer. The ‘Isolation box’, a box with a two-sided mirror so you could see in but not out was positioned in the middle of the busy Paddington concourse. Individuals could go inside the box and listen to a short audio from a cancer patient about loneliness through a headset, whilst…

How important is a good night sleep, eh? Have you ever been away for a holiday, short break or business and stayed in a hotel where you’ve lay awake due to noises, thinking someone’s going to walk in, an uncomfortable bed, it being way too hot in the room…the list goes on right…I’m sure I’m not the only one. Although I’m probably one of only a few who thinks too much of work before bed, therefore not sleeping due to anxiety and probably dreaming of work things – I’m so silly! Last week and the week prior I stayed away on business for a total of four days, as many of you might know, due to being on event. One of the four nights I stayed in…

I’ve been out on event most of this week and have absolutely loved it! From Monday evening until Thursday evening I was travelling, working and networking all day. I was helping out with a roadshow which we were doing around the country, and visited the last 3 cities with my client. I hardly had 30mins to myself each day, but didn’t mind one bit – this week really has been fantastic. I met some amazing people who I’ll never forget and enjoyed getting to work with a client I didn’t normally have much contact with. It also allowed me to show everyone how motivated I am which you can’t always achieve from being in office. I loved it so much that yesterday, back in the…
