Failure

‘What is your biggest fear?’ For me it used to be a fear of failure, of messing up, of not being good enough at something or getting it wrong. Oh, and birds!! Now whilst birds still terrify me, failure does not. It is a common fear though, that of failure. That little voice inside your head that tells you, you can’t.

Clean Eating’s Dirty Secrets: My Thoughts

Last summer I watched a documentary on clean eating – these were my thoughts on it! A couple weeks back I watched the lovely Grace Victory’s BBC 3 documentary, Clean Eating’s Dirty Secrets.

Basically, it exposed certain blogger/vloggers for irresponsible posting and generally tried to open people’s eyes to the fact that what you read on…

Poor cinderella represents the hundreds (thousands probably) of girls that believe there is a quick fix to getting the body they want. IT MAKES ME SO MAD. Honestly, people ask me all the time what is my secret? Train, six days a week for…

I saw this on Instagram (@kimfitbath) and instantly LOVED it! It is so so easy to focus on areas of improvement whether that be personality, looks, career etc etc but how often do you stop, take stock and actually identify things you LIKE about yourself!!?
