Best of May



Here we are again, at the end of another month. Sitting down to think about what I enjoyed and what I want to talk about has become a great ritual at the end of each month, and one that is making me appreciate the good things a lot more. Sometimes I have a million things to recommend and shout about, but this installment of the Best of the month is less about things and more about experiences. I hope you enjoy it!

THE FUN VIDEO

Early in May a London receptionist was sent home from work because she wasn't wearing heels. The story became huge, putting in the spotlight the existence of useless dress codes that have nothing to do with a woman's ability to perform her job. More than 100,000 of us signed online petitions to stop this nonsense and in the end the company apologised, although I am struggling to find a link to their apology!
Stylist magazine published a really funny video showing men wearing high heels to work that made me laugh and that I have watched more times than I care to admit!

Yoga for beginners: 30 day challenge with Fightmaster Yoga

Last month Anne from Linda Libra Loca and I decided to take on this challenge together. We would complete Fightmaster Yoga's Yoga for Beginners 30 Day Challenge. We've been keeping a journal every day of it and Anne has published our thoughts, achievements and struggles in her blog each week. We finally reached the end and we wanted to share our thoughts on the whole experience.

Thoughts on healthy eating


This week I was going to write a recipe for a quick mid week pasta dish, but last Friday I came across an article about the wellness and clean eating trends by Ruby Tandoh that made me stop and think. Ruby was one of the contestants in The Great British Bake Off in recent years and since then has been writing about food for The Guardian.

Her piece is here and I would recommend you read it because if you are a foodie or care about your health you will find it interesting and thought provoking.

Making good things happen


There are always times in life when it feels like everything is working against you and everything is going wrong, or you feel stuck in a situation you don’t want to be in. It can be work related, or a relationship or a friendship. Sometimes things that are completely outside of our control happen. We lose people we love, we go through break ups, illness, we have a hard time with a friend... I know I have gone through all of the above and it sucks at the time.

Best of April



I often start these sort of posts by saying what a great month it has been, but April has been rubbish. It has been stressful and sad and whenever I get stressed I stop doing all the things that make me feel good. Thankfully I realise I am doing that at some point and have started trying to get back to a better place, so next month you can expect lots of yoga, inspiring podcast episodes and sunny trips with friends. With that said, there have still been pockets of goodness in April, so let's get into it!
