I USED TO HATE PEOPLE WHO WORKED OUT. BUT SH*T, NOW AM I ONE

I used to hate people that worked out, now I am one. I was literally the nemesis of exercise. It became a part of my personality so deeply ingrained that even the thought of going to the gym had me scoffing and cussing out people who 'trained' - uurgh, what a word, training for what love? The gym selfie Olympics?!

8 THINGS THAT ARE WORTH BUYING IN THE JANUARY SALES

Hi guys! Hope you're all enjoying the New Year and you're full of fresh ideas and excitement for the future. One thing I do love about this time of year (alongside the sweet smell of optimism) is that it's a great time to save money on some purchases that you would normally make at full price. BUT. Saying that, it can be a time to be drawn in by promises of savings and compulsive purchases that are more pointless than Mariah Carey having a working microphone (did you see that performance, ouch!). So as my latest #swifthomehack for Switftcover I've put together a little guide to have you enjoying your savings rather than regretting your splurges.

THINGS TO SEE IN COPENHAGEN: GLYPTOTEKET MUSEUM

Hey peeps! Sorry for a few days of no blogs, we just got back from a week away in Copenhagen. You may remember that I visited CPH on a press trip with Amara earlier in the year, and because I loved it so much wed decided to take a trip as a family. I thought you might be interested in things to see in Copenhagen, and one of our most enjoyed days out of our holiday was this trip to Glyptoteket, an art museum built around the collection of Carl Jacobsen.

THE LOWDOWN ON MY INSTALLATION AT HABITAT'S FLAGSHIP STORE

Last week I launched my installation at Habitat's Tottenham Court Road. Considering it was just over 2 years ago that I got 'let go' from my full time office job, I can't quite believe it. When I was questioning whether I was any good at interiors or if I should just go and get another job I would have never thought that in such a short space of time something like this could happen. I thought I'd talk you through how the collaboration came about and show you a little bit of behind the scenes of the installation!

HOW MOVING TO A CO-WORKING SPACE INCREASED MY PRODUCTIVITY

Word up! Things have gone from 0-60 around here lately. What with No Bull Blog School, the blog, styling work and various other things a gwan I needed to find somewhere outside of my flat to really crack on and get productive. I've always loved the idea of shared workspaces but couldn't really understand why people who work for themselves would pay to go and work somewhere else when you could just roll out of bed and pick up your laptop.

So I decided to try it. AND THEN IT HAPPENED.
