Spin classes- the general consensus is that you either love them or you hate them. A little like marmite, right? I’ll keep this short but sweet. I used to really dislike spin. Like, really dislike spin. That was until I was offered a place at Core Collective to train up as one of their Cycle instructors. I didn’t of course mention that I wasn’t a spin fan, but instead decided to take on the challenge and train up to be part of the team. It seemed like a great place to work, I wanted to start teaching some kind of fitness class and it would fit perfectly alongside my modelling and blogging. So, I hit the bike behind the scenes and after many one-to-one sessions and a nerve-wracking audition, I was finally ready for my debut.
So, Summer has officially come to an end (even if the weather isn’t saying so just yet- I’m actually typing this while sat outside trying to soak up the last of the sun) and the thought of Autumn has me scrambling to hold onto my tan for as long as naturally possible. FYI, I am not a sun bed user and aren’t so much a fan of fake tan, so they are out of the equation! I could book flights to a hotter destination, which may still happen, but as a quick fix to maintain healthy glowing skin I’m choosing to ramp up the moisturising!
Last night I headed down to Kachette, Shoreditch for the launch of the Puma x Ader Error collaboration. Effortlessly cool Ader Error is a contemporary brand founded only in late 2014. The fact that in less than 4 years since their launch they are already collaborating with brands such as Puma speaks volumes and looking at the collection you can see how they created a name for themselves so quickly.
I’ve been a fan of Jeffrey Campbell for a few years now, however when thinking of the brand it would always be their chunky heeled boots that would come to mind (or the luscious pair of hardware black and gold heels with lion emblems that I received as a Christmas gift back in 2013). It wasn’t until I was having a little browse of ASOS last month and stumbled across the most amazing pair of trainers in New In that I realised Jeffery Campbell sell sneakers and they are to die for…
August 5th 2018 and I have officially been 26 for one whole day. Well actually, nearly two now. I’ve reached the ‘wrong side of 25’ and I’m not too sure how I feel about it…
It’s 1am exactly and my alarm is set for 6am. That’s 5 hours until I’m expected to wake and tackle the day ahead. I have Beyoncé barre with DKNY Sport first thing, before heading to the agency to collect a package and have a catch up with my bookers. I’ll then come back to the apartment for a conference call, will work out- I’m thinking a run seeing as it’s forecast to be nice tomorrow- and then will sit down to tackle emails, work my way through an important contract, put in time on a secret project and scout new music for my spin classes. I’m planning to have a productive day, yet there’s one problem- I can’t fall to sleep.
Last week I flew to Italy for the first time ever. I’d heard nothing but great things about the country, yet still didn’t really know what to expect. Every single person that I’d spoken to gushed about how great the food is out there and recommended places to visit, yet where I was to visit wouldn’t really be under my control. I was travelling with two close friends of mine- sisters- and their family, so the itinerary would be down to them, which I kind of liked. I’m pretty chilled when it comes to making plans, so if it were down to me we’d have probably spent two days just deciding where to visit (and I was there for a three day trip, so that definitely would have been no good).
