Intro to Yoga: Downward-facing dog


No Comments

The final part of my three part series: INTRO TO YOGA. (check out part one and two here if you haven’t already!)

There are a few things I wish that I had been taught when I first started practicing yoga. Hence I made this series as I want to do everything I can to make it a little bit easier for you guys as beginners.

For me personally I had been practicing for a good few years before a teacher finally told me the true alignment I should be in for Downward-facing dog. Then when this happened my yoga practice completely transformed!

So it may seem silly to do a whole post on just one posture. However I really believe the down dog is the basis for everything! It can teach you so much about alignment and I wish I had known how to do the posture correctly when I first started practicing.

Travel: BUDAPEST


No Comments

My big sister just turned 26. For her birthday I bought her flights to go to Budapest. The summer had just come to an end in London and it seemed like the perfect time to go explore and find a bit of sun before winter truly came.

I love Budapest. The backdrop of the Buda hills, the dramatic river Danube running through the city and the beautiful architecture make it incredibly pretty. The chain bridges give the city a romantic vibe and the Jewish district brings rich history into the streets. It was my second time to the city and all the love I had felt the first time I visited came flooding back. Not to mention Budapest is also super fun, filled with ruin bars, more than 100 thermal baths and lots of sights to see, plus it is really cheap! What is not to love…

Here are some photographs of our weekend in Budapest. At the end you will find a list of the places I would recommend (bars, baths, sights etc.) if you are thinking about taking a trip to this amazing city.

How to workout like a model – YOGA


No Comments

Practising yoga can have huge benefits for both the body and the mind.

Yoga strengthens and tones the body whilst leaving the mind feeling calmer and more present.

The ancient form of yoga can be practiced anywhere, there is no need for a gym, trainers or even a mat. Hence it is the perfect form of fitness for models who are traveling a lot.

A couple of weeks ago I worked with the amazing Elite model management team on a “How to work out like a model” video for Elite Model Look.
