First time when I came to London one thing I noticed. Everyone was running 🏃♀️ people was running on the road, on the pavement, in the park, nearly everywhere. I was wondering why they do that?? Are they late , are they stressed, is it fashionable...It must be a good way the comit to places???
Few years after I start running myself, without even knowing. It’s just happen. I was running in sport clothes, elegant, any kind of outfit just because I thought I’m late. I need to be on time. I was train my body also.
Most of the people run to reduce the stress or the get fit. Just because by moving your body you really push it to the point that make you feel good after. Now is a springtime and you can see even more people out just running 🏃♀️. Happy spring time!
Blossom watch! There’s many benefits of having a dog one of them being I get to go for a walk every day and it’s been so beautiful recently to see the blossoms coming out and changing each time I’m in the park 🌸🌸🌸💕🌸
Throw back to presenting at last years British Arrows Awards Show. The first time I'd ever presented in front of a crowd of over a thousand and it was a complete adrenaline rush! Now its nearly
time to do it again, on the same stage with an even better speech.
Watch this space.

Will you ever consider doing this ladies or gents ask your wife to??. I saw this story and I was BLOWN away ⛅️... This is AMAZING, and it’s something I will do without any regrets. God bless her heart 💓
Hands up if you’ve got a long run planned this weekend? 🙋🏼🙋🏼
Hands up again if you’re beginning to get a bit jittery about it? 🙋🏼🙋🏼 So you know this is totally normal. These long runs are likely to present challenge, and they could in these late stages mean you taking on your longest run ever 🏃🏼♀️ 🏃♂️ , which yes, can make the tummy go!
Now, we’re no experts but we have done a few long runs in our time so we thought we’d share some of the secrets that have helped us keep breakfast down and the legs clocking up the @strava miles!
1) Stick to what you know. The likelihood is you’ve done a few double digit mile runs now, and therefore we hope have enjoyed one or two of them so far. Keep the brain sane and repeat what you know. If pasta the night before sat well stick with it, if a few minutes of meditation before you set off helped, set a few aside. This we hope will aid the recipe for repeat success!
2) Grab a group or buddy to get you through. As you know we’re a little bias on this one, but there’s no doubt and @daddydarkrdc will agree with us on this one, many many miles alone suck. You get into your own head and under your own legs and you spend the hours convincing yourself you can’t when we know you can! Join a group (we run ‘Saturday long runs’ - link’s on our stories) or convince a partner or supportive friend to join you for sections that might be the toughest. We suggest somewhere in the middle or towards the end. Another option is to split your run up by linking up with a group or @parkrunuk part way through!
3) Suss out loo stops. Us girls especially cannot simply pee wherever we find a quiet spot, so when mapping your route note some key wee spots should you need them. It’s one less stress to worry about and can also help break up your run!
4) Finally, have a secret weapon or two up your sleeve. Take extra of your favourite run snack, or line up your favourite sing song ready to whip out when the going gets tough. It’s simply something to look forward to, and to settle the strop whenever it crops up. These mid run tantrums happen to us all you know!
Hopefully these 4 tips help you to run smooth, and happy!

Juice 1/2 Lime⠀
Blend all ingredients together and put in to the bowl. Top with frozen berries, kiwi fruit, coconut shavings, almonds and seeds. ⠀
What should I prepare with this two lovely fish?? I’m thinking 🤔 African native JOLLOF 🤷♀️... the brown one is called Abo (sole fish) and the black one is called cat fish
I don’t start without the intention of finishing, thank to those who have contributed via the gofundme link ☝️on bio.
I spoke to Vera, who is Respect’s mom. She has promised to send me her daughter’s school details including the principal’s number tomorrow. I don’t advice making payment into mummy’s personal account unless you have meet up and seen her, just starting from experience.
This year I’m putting myself aside.... You will be kept updated on every stage. If you know a child/Adult without education pls let me know, as no CHILD SHOULD BE DEPRIVED OF ONE.
Thanks and God bless
Want to do a big shout out to @turnerandgeorge (or Select meats, thier wholesale department who have been one of my suppliers for years) it's #nationalbutchersweek and despite there being alot of talk about cutting down on meat in the press recently, its also about buying ethically sourced and reared meat. Its about quality not quanity and making little steps (lile buying from a butcher, not a supermarket)are all in the right direction
This is their rare breed, free range pork belly cooked for 6 hours, pressed overnight & then glazed and made into a Pork, watermelon, cashew & mint salad. So good......🐷🐷🐷🐷
🌿 What is coaching? 🌿
As I have a few spaces opening up for some new coaching clients I thought it would be helpful to share a little bit about the 1-1 work I do. 🌸 Coaching is not the same as therapy. 🌸 Coaching is future focussed, it is a way of building confidence, challenging limiting beliefs, creating clarity and purpose. 🌸 Coaching creates a safe space in which to explore different perspectives, build a more positive mindset and unblock your full potential. 🌸 Coaching can benefit anyone who wishes to cultivate self-awareness and live a more abundant life.

A look around this open plan family room at a project in Battersea that we designed last year. We managed to fit a lot into this relatively compact space from the bespoke joinery with storage and to house the TV, a comfortable lounge seating area, to the dining table with banquet seating, a desk area and bar seating at the kitchen. Almost all the furniture (aside from some side tables) was custom made to make the most of every inch of space. #sophiepatersoninteriors#interiordesign#livingroom#livingroomdecor

🔹 Una vez uno de mis grandes Maestros me pregunto durante una clase: "Hace mucho que no dejas de tocar ¿verdad?". En ese momento estaba estudiando y tocando mucho, casi sobreexigidamente y con algunos dolores, por lo que orgulloso respondí "cierto Maestro", pensando que luego vendría un halago de su parte. En su lugar, me hizo una pregunta que al principio no entendí. "¿Y por qué no?".
Mi respuesta fue obvia: Porque queria ser cada vez mejor. A lo que él respondió. "A veces es necesario tomar un descanso hasta de nuestra pasión mas grande, para darle tiempo al cuerpo y a la mente de asimilar la información y así retomar con mas fuerza". 🔹
Desde entonces respeto y acepto aquellos momentos en los que por alguna razón debemos tomar distancia de nuestras pasiones, sabiendo que es sólo para tomar impulso y volver con mas fuerza.
Es tiempo de entrar en la cueva.
Throwing it back to this denim and Ankara outfit I wore on last night’s beast of a show!!! Boy... was it tough??
But a big shout out to @jenerates who won #garmentoftheweek and @avian_exile who went home. Lots of love to my #gbsb5 family!!
Onto a new week.... let’s go!!
I did a thing! I created a project where I can geek out to my little heart’s content on my favourite thing: Film and TV.
And how lucky was I with my first guest, internationally renowned stuntman and stunt-coordinator, @gary_connery ... who has doubled for @leonardodicaprio , #garyoldman and the QUEEN(!) in the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony. .
He is as charming as he is nuts and he has the best stories of anyone I’ve ever met. I cannot wait to record more. (It’ll be a bit before they’re ready, it’s all brand new).
Big thanks to @batterseapodcasts - what a gorgeous environment to bring this lovely dream of mine to life, and thank you @jackpatchettofficial for sniggering and zooming in on me when I f-up. Hahaha!
Since sharing this post on the blog a few weeks ago I’ve had lots of messages asking about the blind and lampshade. The blind is made from my favourite @designersguild fabric, it’s called Madame Butterfly and now comes in other colour ways and print sizes too (it’s in Lily’s bedroom in another colour) - in fact I think I’ve used it in almost all of our renovations I love it so much!
The lampshade is from @grahamandgreen and also comes as a table lamp and a floor lamp. Happy Friday! ✨

تقدیم به نگاه پر مهرتون❤🙏 .
شب بخیر ای ردپای گمشده در خواب ها
سایه ی رویای عشق افتاده بر محراب ها
شب بخیر ای آخرین خُنیاگر تصنیف شب
خنده هایت برده طاقت از دل بی تاب ها
شب بخیر ای تابش لبخند جان افزای عشق
غمزه ی نازت گره خورده به اسطرلاب ها
شب خوش ای شیرین ترین پرواز صفر عاشقی
در سماع واژه ها با زخمه ی مضراب ها
ای صدای رهگذر در انتظار پنجره
ای طلوع شعر من در خنده ی مهتاب ها
دلخوشی هایم شده ، دیدار قاب عکس تو
شب بخیر ای شهرزاد قصه گوی خواب ها
عطر تو پیچیده در تنهایی "یاس خیال"
شب بخیر آبی ترین نیلوفر تالاب ها #محمد_جوکار#کوگ_غریو#بابادی#بختیاری

Last workout before Xmas but I didn’t do it to ‘earn’ my mince pies
Today’s workout would only be worth 1 or 2 anyway and I’m not putting myself through 30 mins of sweating and pain for a couple of mince pies, fuck that!
Having the mentality that food is bad and you have to put yourself through pain to justify it is one that will only lead you to a dark place.
If you know that it’s only when pushed towards our limits that we change and that the discomfort we get from training is just our body’s way of telling us we are pushing them and growing, you’ll enjoy the discomfort.
It won’t be punishment, it will be reward.
It won’t be “having” to train, it will be “getting” to train.
Most of the time you’ll want to fuel that performance but sometimes you’ll want to eat 4 mince pies, 6 pigs in blankets and 10 Lindt chocolate balls and won’t feel bad because you know food isn’t the enemy.
Vivienne Westwood en sådan inspiration för mig genom åren. Intellektuell, aktivistisk, gränslös, visionär och på samma gång befriande gammeldags. Bjussar på en gammal goding från sommaren 2010 då jag praktiserade på hennes Gold Label i London. Jag fick chansen att prova en massa kläder ur arkivet. Bland annat denna klänning, som råkade bli fångad på film. #viviennewestwood#funtimes
Recently reminded of this afternoon with @designanddigest and @atelier.ellis.
I find myself revisiting these photos of Cassandra’s home for inspiration. Such a beautiful mix of classic British, with simple and modern touches too - so warm and lived in. Exactly where you’d want to sit for a cup of tea with friends.
