I had long accepted my role as “the single girl” over the last few years (and when I say few… I mean a lot!) In fact, I quite liked it to be honest. I was really good at distracting myself with my career and putting other things first so it was rare that I felt lonely, even with all of the travelling I do! In a very unexpected turn of events, someone came into my life and completely shook it up, but in a good way. For the first time, in a long time, I was pursued by someone. Ladies, you know how it is, sometimes it feels like we are doing all the chasing when in actuality we just want someone to chase us. Well that happened for me! Now, months and months down the line, I’m engaged! The forever single girl is single no more. I’m absolutely loving every minute of this process as well. So get ready for lots of wedding posts! I’m having a crazy short engagement and between releasing an album, doing festivals in the UK and a tour this Autumn, I’m also planning a December 2017 wedding!?! I’m not sure I thought things through […]

I have never understood why so many active wear clothing companies ignore the plus size community, so I’m thrilled to see Nike pioneering the movement. You can check out the full collection here, but first here are a few of my favorite pieces… Nike are not just great for active wear, they have some great leisurewear too – as modelled here by my fellow blogger friend, Danielle Vanier. I absolutely love that Nike has not only used gorgeous plus size models but influential bloggers as well! Sometimes its best to keep your style simple. I love how you can go straight from the gym to the high street in this head to toe Nike look. Dani is bringing it again! I don’t know about you, but I would definitely like to rock this look during my Zumba class! The new collection is more than black leggings and tops. There are great sports bras to support the girls and lots of colors to choose from when it comes to putting together your workout look. So hit the gym in style, ladies! Rock those curves while keeping it healthy!
My latest obsession are Brussel Sprouts! Where have these been all my life?? I probably make this low carb side dish from Peace, Love and Low Carb on a weekly basis! Check out this recipe for these to die for SKILLET ROASTED BACON BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH GARLIC PARMESAN CREAM SAUCE.
It’s that time of year again. Time to make those resolutions! Personally, I’ve never been a fan of all of that. I’m more of an “improve yourself all year long” kind of girl… With the body positive/acceptance movement in full force I think we forget just how important taking care of our bodies actually is. Does that mean you need to be skinny? Of course not, but it does mean that you should take pride in your body and health no matter what size you are. Below are some great workout tips from one of my favorite personal trainers and my actual personal trainer, Eric Bartee, as well as a low carb recipe that is sure to be a hit at the dinner table! I have recently gone low carb and I thought this was going to be difficult, but I’ve come to find that I should have done it years ago! My latest obsession is Danielle Walker. For Christmas I bought myself her book, Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain: Meals Made Simple. I wouldn’t say it’s as easy as “normal” cooking but it sure tastes just as good! This Paleo Chicken Tikka Masala is a staple in my recipe […]
Gone are the days of dressing up in your finest to go to the airport. Looking around you’ll see people in their trainers, sweats and practically wearing pajamas. I have never been that person. I blame my mother. She always dressed us up when we went places so, naturally, I’m still doing that. On the long hauls I do so often now I’m starting to think that the people wearing sweats have the right idea. Who cares if they just look like they just rolled out of bed! They are comfy!
One Look, Two Ways I love wearing clothes that are versatile. There is nothing better than getting the most out of your hard earned money when it comes the the clothes you buy. Fashion is about pushing boundaries and who says you can’t throw on a pair of trainers with a dress and rock it. Take a look at how I styled a traditional little black slip dress (another huge trend this A/W16) by giving it a trendy daytime look and then a classy evening look.
