Finding My Way Back Home

I don’t know where to begin with this post as I wasn’t sure that I should even write it, but I feel like in order to move on, I’m one of those people that has to get it off my chest and clear my head, which leads me to writing this at gone 2am in the morning. I don’t usually share these types of posts with you as I always try to keep things inspirational and motivational, trying to help others and keep positive, but there’s never any room for lies in my life and the truth is – I…

Keeping Fit During Winter

As the winter is almost here, it can be really hard to find the enthusiasm to want to go out and workout.

I went in depth about the illness I have been through since I was a baby and how we have been working together to undo all of the damage that’s been done. As I’m documenting the journey, the next thing I’ve been learning with Katie is how to do Gua Sha. What’s that? Let me tell you! Gua sha, translated from Chinese into English means to scrape…

Engagement Q&A With Lorna & Adam

As you know, Adam and I got engaged almost 6 weeks ago and the support from all of you has been incredible! There were 80 comments on the blog post alone and about 70 more via social media, so a huge thank you to all of you for the congratulations and well wishes. It truly means so much to us. As I tend to keep my private life off of the blog and hardly any of you know anything about Adam (other than the fact he takes my photos), I thought it would be nice to do an engagement Q&A…
