The year nipples got big!

The year nipples got big!

I may be coming in a little late to the whole nipple debate, but this season they are so big (figuratively speaking) that its become very hard to ignore them. The Free the Nipple campaign was all to do with a woman's right to bare her boobs, but as someone keen to keep theirs firmly a mystery, I decided at the time not to delve deeper into the debate. Then I encountered the wonderfully stylish Trinny Woodall. Utterly fabulous, yet not a big fan of wearing bras. I started to wonder I am out of touch here?

Why blog?

Why blog?

It’s been a while since I talked about my new found career as a writer and blogger, and while there can’t be many left that haven’t heard me harp on about how much I love it, I thought maybe we were due a recap! Quite a few people have approached me about how to get into blogging and even more have asked me the secret of how to leave a career in finance for something more rewarding. I’ve been surprised and saddened to realise just how many people there are out there working nine to five in a job they hate.

Is there life after boxing?

Is there life after boxing?

So I’m completely done in. Emotionally raw, exhausted and burnt out. After a continuous stream of over twelve months training for a boxing bout that never materialised I feel lost and ready to give up on the sport altogether. With so much of my life involving sports and a need to always be driven by the next goal, its hard to contemplate life without that competitive edge. But I cant even remember the last time I just sat down and did nothing, just took in life around me. With a family, a new career and blogging in what spare time I have, is it time to give up on being the best at everything? Can my next challenge really be to live without a challenge?

The secret of our shores

The secret of our shores

Jersey Recovery College turns one year old this month, having helped 330 students during the course of 2017, all facing difficulties with their own mental wellbeing.

One of their most popular courses, the Sea Swimming programme, has enabled many to reconnect with society, offering them a safe environment to explore the benefits of swimming in Jersey's shores.

A gym with soul

A gym with soul

If you’re anything like me, whispers of a new gym opening in town will have been getting you a little titillated of late. It’s a small Island, so the idea of a modern gym pushing our fitness into the future is much like the second coming of Christ! With so much transition towards healthy living and investment being made in mental wellbeing as well as physical exercise, it was about time we had somewhere that catered for every element of our holistic demands. Club Soulgenic does this and so much more, it’s THE home to health, meeting the needs of dynamic and very busy millennials.
