Top 10 | Sharing Plate Restaurants in London

'Small Plates', 'Sharing Plates', 'Can't decide what I want so going to order everything plates' -- whatever you want to call them, they're causing a stir on the London food scene. Whilst the concept isn't new, and the Spaniards can take full credit for introducing us to the 'tapas-style' concept it's definitely something that in the last couple of years has taken the city by storm. An abundance of places have been and gone - and a few firm favourites have remained. Whether you're looking for a night out with a group of friends, or an indulgent date night for two, sharing plates are my go-to! My indecisive nature will take full credit for this, and I'll make no excuses for it, at the end of the day who doesn't want to try a bit of everything? "Say no to food envy' and hello to an immersive concept of social interaction over the enjoyment of great food.

Travel To | Edinburgh

I'd be back in a heartbeat if I could. Maybe I am biased, but I couldn't think of better place to go to university. It's got it all yet it's contained enough to be able to make it feel like home over the 4 years I spent studying there. Edinburgh.. you stole my heart! This post in itself doesn't quite do it justice, and trying to limit my favourite spots to one post was a real struggle -- so don't be surprised if I add more over time! I have no doubt I'll be back to visit again soon, but in the mean time, here's an insight to some of my favourite places to eat, drink & sleep in a city that really does have it all.

Insight Into | Taking on The Race to the Stones

A couple of hours have gone by now since clicking the 'Register Now' button for 2017 Race to the Stones, reality has hit -- and I'm not entirely sure what I've done. In hindsight it perhaps would've been better to have spent a couple of hours before entering reading others race reviews rather than leaving that until post-registration! The fear has hit and the 100km challenge is upon me.

Travel To | Paris

Back in November 2015, I signed up to my first marathon. Albeit a very rash decision, perhaps drawn in ever so slightly at the prospect of trip to 'The City of Love' as an added extra. Soon after, the training began, but more importantly the Paris planning started. As a brunch and hotel enthusiast, and the worst-decision maker known to man, Paris planning became a huge challenge. The abundance of boutique hotels, Parisienne cafes, and chic hotspots, made for a lot to fit in over 3 days (as well as throwing in a 42km run into the mix). However, the challenge was accepted, and needless to say it did not disappoint.

Insight Into | My Decision To Become a Qualified Personal Trainer

Having set out to challenge myself, yet again, I've signed up to take my Level 2 and 3 combined certification to become a fully qualified personal trainer with Train Fitness. No - I am not giving up my job, putting my life on hold or throwing away my university degree. I am ultimately undertaking the course for 3 reasons.

Top 5 | Free Fitness Classes in London

Blue Monday has been and gone, but let's be honest, the bank account is still taking a hit -- December's pay-check is out of the window on Christmas presents, Dry January turned into "I can't survive January without a drink', and you're counting down the days until January's payslip arrives into the account.
