SoulCycle London Review

I love a good spin class. It’s the only form of exercise that has me excited before I even get to the studio. The one thing that gets me out of bed before 6am (apart from a flight). And for sure the most consistent single workout I’ve done over the past few years. When you combine this with my love of US reality TV you can imagine my giddy joy when SoulCycle announced their first London studio.

Buy Black London

If you’re not aware - one of my main aims of this little ole blog is to support Black British owned businesses. So when I saw Buy Black London pop up on on my Instagram I knew I was going. This pop-up gives black owned business the chance to show off their brands and encourages the community to get out, show up and support with their coins.

4 Finance Newsletters For Newbies

Other than getting rid of some debt, the other financial goal for this year is to learn more about the stock market and the economy and in general so that when I’ve got the coins I can make some educated investments. Here are the recent resources I’ve been using to bring me up to speed.

I’m not a beauty blogger (anymore). I’m definitely not a product junkie. If I’m considering a purchase I research the product for about 3 months like I’m studying for a PHD.

Spa With Ma

We are not spa people. I didn’t grow up having lunch dates with mum, or getting our nails done at the salon. You’d sooner find us in the kitchen with a cup of tea; waxing lyrical, singing lyrics to our favorite tunes and retuning the chords of our lives with realism and wisdom.

10 Thoughts: Zami: A New Spelling Of My Name

I’m not sure what made me pick up this book. The name Audre Lorde was familiar to me, yet her work was not, but when I saw this book and it’s intriguing cover I picked it up immediately. It was the last one. That was a sign. I held it close and sprinted to the checkout in a race against my conscious as I wasn’t supposed to be buying anything that day and had only just started reading another book. Here’s what I thought

January Review: 2019 Goals

This has got to have been my best January ever. I stayed in for New Years eve, so started the year neither drunk nor broke. I spent New Years Day doing a bit of shopping, finishing off my Year Compass planner, and meeting friends for a New Years cheers.

Nike Training Club App Review

Me and the Nike Training Club first got acquainted in January 2018. I’ve clearly got form for the whole ‘new year, new you’ thang.  It was recommended to me by a colleague who was a total gym bunny so I downloaded it and got stuck in. Here’s what I think of the app.
