Porridge has become my go to breakfast of choice. Sometimes even my go to lunch or dinner of choice. It is foolproof and as I just start exploring food and cooking and all the many ways it can – and does – go wrong, I am thankful for the things that I can’t mess up. What I have learnt is that no two people make porridge the same and that I love this recipe.

For a lot of people, they start working out to lose weight. January the first comes up and people want to be fitter, tone up, and (for me at least) lose belly fat. I have said many times that I started running because I was jealous of my sister. That’s not the complete truth. I wanted to lose belly fat – I actually wanted to lose it quite badly. However constantly weighing myself and pinching the fat around my waist because very demoralising and mentally crippling very quickly.

Eventually my reasoning for working out moved and changed from weight loss to something else. Put very simply it made me happy. The post sweat endorphin high is amazing for both body and mind.

Sweatlife is back for its second year! Last weekend Lululemon took over the Tobacco Dock in East London to host a day of sweat, fun, food, and more sweat. I couldn’t make it in 2016 but this year I didn’t want to miss it. Everyone’s ticket prices included two sweat sessions, unlimited yoga and learn sessions. Once I bought my ticket I had to make the very hard choice of choosing if I try a new studio or if I go for studios I love and trust. If only all my problems were this fun!

Last weekend I joined the amazing ladies at We Love to Brunch and Creating for Good as they organised another event for causes that matter. This time the venue was Balls Brothers in Mayfair and 100% of the proceeds went to Just Bread an organisation which brings together the refugee women of London to share their skills, creativity, and cultural heritage whilst acquiring the skills of a professional baker. Such a good cause, meeting some amazing women, and trying brunch in a new place? Win, win, win.

My first ever sports bra was a Shock Absorber one. I loved it and it suited my needs perfectly. However after working out more and developing muscles on my upper back, shoulders, and arms I found it really difficult to take the bra off. Enter stage left the new Ultimate Run Bra. I was so excited to try it on and do a few workouts with it. My review is below!
