Bling bling 💍

I am a stickler for putting a ridiculous amount of pressure on myself to be a super-human overachiever (funnily enough I always fall veeeery short 🙈).

I was having this very conversation the other day. I was doing my usual go-to tendency of being a little unkind to myself and focusing on things that I have yet to accomplish when someone very wisely hit me with a comment that literally overwhelmed me with gratitude 🙏

They asked if I could “just go drive to a local industrial unit and clean a load of dirty old ammo boxes?”

At first I thought “wtf?” but it hit me that’s exactly what I did for years, sometimes I would have to literally drive to Europe, fill up a crappy old van with hundreds of surplus 50 cal ammo boxes, and clean them (they were dirty AF) in an old freezing cold unit that would flood with cow faeces when it rained. It was opposite a cattle shed 🐄 🤪 I wore wellies, don’t be alarmed 😅

Basically, I grafted! A looooot!

I didn’t have a particularly affluent upbringing, we survived on a single income from a supermarket. I don’t think that’s anything to be proud of really, I’m often more impressed by people who were born with a silver spoon 🥄 because harnessing that level of hunger required to be entrepreneurial is mind-blowing 👏🏻

Anyway, my waffley point is that comparison is absolutely the thief of joy… except when it comes to yourself. Do that shit a lot!

Be grateful for how far you’ve come, it’s 100% the secret to happiness 💯

And so concludes an eventful weekend with @muscleandhealthmag at the @arnoldsportsuk 💪🏻

It was delightful to meet everyone. Such a charming bunch 😍😍

Apologies if I subjected you to my waffly drizzle on the mic 🎤 I am too uncool for this task.

Many fails with this photo, the random geek point, the function-over-fashion ode to a vintage Lilly Allen ensemble.

But still… London vibes alllll day long. I just love it. The city that never sleeps, that overcharges you for just about everything, that fancy Uber upgrade option… I’ll take it all 🤌🏻😍

Casually bastardising innocent flower arrangements in attempt to look boho always seems likes a good idea at the time (when the Prosecco is flowing 😂)

@what_samantha_eats

I quite often get messages about my omelettes being overdone 😂 but that’s how I like them 💁🏼‍♀️

What do you reckon?

‘Shrooms are always a great go-to for low calorie volume and always hits the mark on taste 👅

Beans, beans, the musical fruit 🤪

You always hear about keeping a tin of tuna in the cupboard for a convenient emergency protein hit but have you considered a tin of bean salad? It’s randomly tasty and even more simple to prepare 💁🏼‍♀️
