The Best Fitness Classes in London (and Leeds)

Gym kit online here / Ad affiliate
It’s no secret that I love working out, and as much as I love going to the gym and motivating myself, I really don’t think you can beat a fitness class. There’s something about fitness classes that motivates me so much and honestly makes me feel like I’ve never pushed so hard. I turn up, don’t even think about what I’m doing, let someone else guide me and within 45mins to 1 hour, I’m done and I can get on with my day as someone is doing the thinking and the planning for me. I just have to get myself there and then move. You know what they say, you never regret a workout. Today I wanted to write about my favourite gym classes in London (and some in Yorkshire for good measure, because I split my time between the two), there are SO many fitness classes in London I am yet to try but these are my top fitness classes in London so far.

I'm sure you're all very aware that I love healthy baking (okay and indulgent baking too but I prefer to share my healthy recipes with you hehe) maybe you've tried my healthy, easy banana bread recipe or my healthier chocolate chip cookie recipe and I know lots of you have tried my 3 ingredient vegan pancake recipeWhatever you've tried (or haven't tried) today I wanted to write up the recipe for my healthy oaty flapjack style recipe. I've never had so many messages on Instagram (@emshelx) asking me to write up a recipe... it seems this soft, oaty bar of deliciousness has got us all excited! The thing is, with my baking, I never weigh things, I just throw them in hehe! I hope you enjoy these healthier flapjacks as much as I do!

I’m sure you guys will know by now that I am absolutely, utterly obsessed with visiting New York. One thing I ensure I do when I travel is hunt down the best food and restaurants, whether they’re popular must eat at chains, hidden gems, local independents or top recommendations. I do a lot of research when visiting new places. I’ve now been to NYC maybe 10 times so I really do feel as if I know it well but every time there are new restaurants on my visit list. Someone told me even if you ate out in New York 3x per day for 10 years you still wouldn’t be able to try all the restaurants, that is crazy. I wrote my huge New York city travel guide a while back (then did my guide to the best pizza in New York) and have been updating them after each trip since but today I wanted to do a separate post about my favourite and top brunch and breakfast spots in New York because let’s be honest, it’s worth getting up for breakfast in New York and I take my food very seriously so you can trust this guide.

Gifted press products and Ad affiliate links featured - Today I wanted to talk about a few of my current favourite face base products. I'm massively into glowing, dewy skin and I wanted to feature the products I've been using for a flawless make up base. These products are all exceptional, great daily products and many have skincare benefits too. I'm forever mixing up the products I use so some of these are lifelong favourites and some of these are new hero products. I'm including some of the top face SPFs, anti-pollution products, concealers, foundations and more to give you a glowy, flawless base.
