Louisa Drake is a force to be reckoned with. A fitness expert, business founder and a serious source of lifestyle inspo, Louisa recently launched LDM, a fitness and lifestyle brand built on the principles of her own inclusive training method and her no-nonsense approach to health and wellness.   

We caught up with her to find out more about LDM, her motivations and of course, her style both in and out of the studio…   

So how does your method work? How can LDM sessions influence your lifestyle?  

At LDM we focus on body confidence and effective training techniques that educate clients on what their individual bodies need. My Method offers a host of fitness disciplines – cardio, conditioning, resistance and stretch – to keep the mind and body guessing and strengthen the muscles you use daily.   

Our whole approach is to encourage confidence, so the Fitzrovia and Muswell Hill studios are a welcoming space where our instructors will calmly guide you through a class, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and well worked, but never worked up and stressed.  

Who can take part in LDM classes?  

LDM classes are accessible to anyone, regardless of their experience, fitness level, shape or size. We have two boutique studios in London, where you can access small group classes and private training daily. We also have LDM online video subscriptions and range of fitness equipment and apparel for taking part at home.  

What inspired you to launch LDM – tell us about your journey...   

After a professional dance career I started to transition into teaching dance and fitness. I was known for my unique style and had several disciplines under my belt but I realised there was something lacking from the workouts I was doing as a client at other gyms and studios.  

I saw a gap for doing things my way and created LDM. After combining the best bits of popular disciples such as yoga, HIIT, Pilates to name just a few I created my signature total body workout that ticks all the boxes in one session – the Shape Changer, the perfect balance of cardio and conditioning material.   

Next month we celebrate our first birthday at our Fitzrovia studio which offers a range of LDM classes that are constantly being fine tuned to suit our clients’ needs.  

What does the word ‘wellness’ mean to you?  

Wellness really sums up being at your optimal best physically and mentally. For me it’s about finding the right balance – time to focus on my changing needs, to honour my own rhythms and have the energy to achieve everything I need.  

What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning?

My clients. Most mornings I’m either up early teaching group classes or I’m with a private client. The occasion I have a morning free, I’ll top up on sleep or schedule some time for myself on the mat.  

How important do you think physical health is to how happy and confident we feel?

Massively important. It should be the main reason you choose to work out and aesthetics are the bonus. The natural high we get from exercise is what keeps you committed.  

What about fashion and style – can what we wear make us happy?  

Absolutely, wearing something that helps you feel happy will be the reason your posture improves which will then be part of the reason your confidence improves and you carry yourself differently. You can express yourself through fashion and your own unique take on it. 

What are your feel-good outfits for work, the weekend and going out?  

I spend a lot of time in activewear and when I'm working out and training clients it’s all about supportive, feel-good fabrics. I select a sweat-wicking product that’s going to work hard for me when I’m back to back and versatile items that mean after a quick change I’m ready to go from studio to meeting.   

When I’m off-duty it’s a mix of denim, fun prints, slogan tees and a vintage feel is always present in my style. For going out I add some standout accessories, switch a trainer for shoe and opt for a dress or cool jumpsuit.  

What about your favourite brands?

Activewear brands such as Sweaty Betty, Lululemon, Lucas Hugh, Nike and Adidas keep me supported and stylish. For tees and sweaters I like British brand Double Trouble Gang – we collaborated on some limited edition LDM sweaters & hoodies. I also love brands such as Etre Cecile and Sezane for an injection of fun prints and slogan pieces.   

Free People, Reformation, ADAY, Faithfull the brand, Ganni and the Vampire’s Wife are labels I gravitate towards. I have some great jackets from Zoe Karssen, Whistles and Acne and my accessories are a mix of high street, vintage and investment pieces from Hill and Friends, Sezane, Laura Lee and Missoma.  

I’m often in trainers by Adidas, Nike and APL and I’m currently loving the Stella McCartney x Adidas Parley shoes made from recycled ocean plastics – they work for all cardio based workouts. Veja make eco-friendly Parisian cool trainers that I like for off-duty and I also like Russell & Bromley, Birkenstock, Soludos, Hobbs and Miu Miu.  

What’s next for you and for LDM? 

Plans are underway to open a bigger standalone LDM studio in London where clients can still benefit from small boutique group fitness and private training with more space and amenities. We have some exciting opportunities in the pipeline and I’m working hard to build up our online LDM video offerings, so we are accessible not just in London but anywhere and at anytime. Watch this space…

Sure summer is great but if you’re already looking forward to those cosy fall vibes, we’ve got good news for you. Peachy, orange tones are already huge this year and they’re the perfect way to help your home transition from sunny weather into the cooler months…  


Filling your home with terracotta, burnt orange and pale sorbet tones is an ideal way to channel some of that fall cosiness while still retaining the warmth and light that summer has to offer. Plus, orange is a mood-boosting color so you can wave those back-to-school blues goodbye.

Rather than opting for a fresh coat of paint for every season – let’s be honest, who has time for that – the best way to infuse your space with a little orange energy is to invest in a few items to brighten the space.   

Think kitchen accessories for a ‘70s inspired look, and soft tonal linens for laid-back boho vibes. Accessories like candles and artworks are a great way to make a space seem fuller and cosier, while statement pieces like oversized cushions and couches inject a much bolder pop of color – great if you have the space.   

Want to try the look for yourself? Transition from summer to fall with our favourite orange pieces in the edit below…

Doesn't Rihanna look like a mermaid in this new cover of Vogue?  While channeling her Pisces energy, I love that she has such a sultry but natural makeup look.  The makeup was done by Lisa Eldridge one of my favorite makeup artists and I really like how she kept all the drama on Rihanna's iconic eyes, leaving her skin bronzed and bare at the same time. beautiful work. photo credit: @vogue on twitter #makeup #beauty #rihanna #lisaeldridge

With summer vacations approaching we’re hitting the gym more often than usual. If that's the case for you too, you're also probably suffering from some post-workout aches. No pain, no gain, right? Wrong what you do after a workout can be just as important as what you do during so we’ve rounded up our favourite relaxing rituals to  help restore your muscles after exercise... 


Eat a tasty protein treat 

After a workout replenish your energy with a protein bar or a smoothie with some added protein powder. Add a handful of your favorite fruits like blueberries and bananas to make it more appetizing, an avocado for healthy fat and some granola or oats for fiber. Nuts and seeds are also great for protein and if you’re craving something bigger, go for poached eggs, grilled chicken or sushi.

Soak it off 

When you hit the showers or run a bath, opt for an invigorating shower gel or cream made with ginger, lemon or grapefruit. Try essential oils like lavender that will relieve aching muscles and if you're not in a hurry, treat yourself to a long relaxing bath with magnesium salts at home. Throw on a face mask or hair treatment for the full pampering experience and detox your post-gym skin. 

Sauna and jacuzzi time 

If you're a member of a gym, you'll most likely have access to a sauna or jacuzzi. The warm temperature will increase pulse rate and circulation without straining your muscles and will help with relaxation. Take a cold shower after your session using a revitalizing shower gel to tighten pores, refresh skin and leave you feeling ready to take on the world.

Forget muted tones and sleek silhouettes, this spring designers are opting for maximalism, and the bolder and brighter the better. One of our favourite takes on the trend comes from Colombian designer Johanna Ortiz and luxury online retailer mytheresa.com. The pair have collaborated to create a statement nine-piece capsule collection sold exclusively at mytheresa.com


Known for contrasting vibrant, festive design with flattering and creative shapes, Johanna looked to the stylish city of Cartagena for the collection’s inspiration. ‘For me, Cartagena is visual poetry,’ says Johanna. ‘The essence of the place is a conductor of creative energy and inspiration. It is the hometown of magical realism.’ 

Oversized polka dots on silk, voluminous ruffles and striking tropical prints are the focus of this collection with thigh-high splits and deep V-neck styles adding extra flair. The collection includes maxi dresses, statement tops, swimsuits and kimonos - perfect for brightening up your wardrobe for SS18. 

Whether you’re jetting off to warmer climes, getting festival-ready for Coachella this month or simply looking to maximise your new-season wardrobe, this exclusive collection inspired by sunny Spanish resorts is the one you’ve been waiting for.

Email, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat or Instragram, we are constantly looking for a sense of gratification on social media. But why not try switching off now and again and trying some new hobbies.#000000"> Switch off and relax. Switching off from social media is a great way to relax stop our brains going into overdrive.

So you have just signed up for many workout classes that are located at a convenient distance from your flat or office. Thankfully, workouts have evolved into a fun experience far from the tedious repetition of the coventional gym. From a zumba class, to ballet and barrecore, HIIT training or Hot Yoga, there's definitely a class for you. 


If you're making the effort to join your nearest gym or dance class you may as well look stylish while breaking a sweat. After figuring out your special athletic gear, including your sports bra leggings and trainers it's time for gym bag research. In this case, you will want to invest in a bag that is both chic and practical. Focus on styles with different compartments for shoes, makeup kit, fresh change of clothes and valuables. Multiple straps are also great if you want to carry your bag on your shoulder or by hand. And a little tip before you sign up for every single workout class close to your apartment or office why not prioritise the workouts that actually make you happy and that you're more likely to follow all year long? 

Moving from office to the gym and bag means that you have to do it in style. And though a tiny bag might be appealing (thank you Kendall Jenner!) might not be practical for you. If you have a locker at the gym feel free to sport a fanny pack or tiny bag. It will actually save you the trouble of carrying your bag from the office or at least you can sport it to after gym drinks with ease. On the other hand, you can also go for a more classic choice of an oversized duffle bag where you can store your energy drink, protein bar, towels and a clean set of clothes. There, you're all workout ready!

Whether for business or pleasure, we're flying more than ever and our questions for the women who board and disembark each flight looking nothing less than exceptional only keep growing.


There are models, editors and industry mavens who are more than happy to share their in-flight beauty tricks but to keep things simple, we've summed up some of the most efficient: 

Cleanse your skin before starting any beauty routine. 
To avoid dehydration, sensitivity and tired skin, don't forget to cleanse. Your skin will thank you at the end of the trip.  

Don't load up on make-up to wear throughout the entirety of your flight 
Once cleansed, moisturise to stay fresh-faced with supple, hydrated skin. Treat your lips to some first-class service Moisturise often your dried-out air-con lips with a rich lip balm. 

Save bag space for things that'll stave off boredom  
If you're on a long haul flight, choose what you pack with care (we recommend iPad, headphones, books etc), avoid bringing your entire make-up collection to touch up with before reaching your destination. Load up retractable brushes with bronzer and brush prior to leaving home!  

Give your hair the care it deserves 
Compact Tangle Teezers and dry shampoo are your new best friend! Get some help for a stress-free flight Essential oils can help you restore your energy and sleep better, for a natural glow at disembarking. 

And last, but not least... Drink all the water you can! 
Aim for at least 1/2 liter per hour on board. 

With all products available in 100ml or less, shop below for everything from cleansing wipes to heavy duty moisturisers and dry shampoo to quick-fix make-up items!

Usually, the yummy tasting root is available in powder after being harvested. It has natural healing properties and has been consumed for years in the Andes as a safe superfood. The maca root powder is high in protein carbs and rich in a number of nutrient including vitamin C, copper and iron. It can also help the body adapt to external stressors like a busy schedule or illness. 

RICH IN ANTIOXIDANTS 

It has many health benefits mainly because it's rich in antioxidants meaning it can neutralise harmful free radicals fighting off disease and preventing damage to cells including ageing.
