With the weather turning cooler and the days getting shorter it’s more important than ever to make sure you’re on top of your game. Summoning the motivation to work out, hydrate, take care of your skin and get enough sleep on top of your other responsibilities can be a pain, but in fall it’s so worth it.   


Skincare is essential during the colder months and nobody wants dry skin and chapped lips. Get into the habit of exfoliating your face and body one to two times a week and never skip the moisturizer. You might want to invest in a few gadgets to make this easier – we love the clever little Foreo exfoliator for getting the job done.   

If you’ve got a little more time on your hands, a soak in the tub with a facemask to draw out impurities and clarify the skin is always a good idea. Try adding restorative salts and oils to your bathwater for an extra mineral boost to soothe tired muscles.  

Now, we know it’s colder and darker out there but exercise is key for a healthy body and mind. If you’re heading outside to work out, opt for a breathable base layer and shoes with decent traction. Don’t forget your headphones and Fitbit to track your progress.   

Post work out it’s all about comfort and relaxation. Fix yourself a healthy snack; take your vitamins, hydrate and chill. We recommend comfy loungewear and a luxe sleep mask to take your down-time to the next level.

Autumn is finally upon us, and that means endless cosy nights in with your favourite Netflix series and plenty of time to pamper yourself. After a long summer of balmy nights and a few too many Aperol Spritzes, it’s probably about time you gave your skincare routine a refresh.


The sudden change in temperature can really take a toll on your complexion, so switch to a creamy cleanser that purifies your skin without stripping its natural oils and, as a result, drying it out – we recommend looking for a solution that doesn’t foam up.   

Hold back from using harsh daily toners and incorporate a soothing serum into your beauty line-up. Look for a milky plumping formula with aloe vera and vitamin C to replenish and revive your skin.  

Once the clocks go back, it’s all about getting an early night, so there’s no better time to step up your evening routine. Switch your lightweight moisturiser for a rich, hydrating night cream and let it works its magic while you sleep.

Self care is cropping up in conversation a lot recently, and while there may be much more to it than pampering yourself, sometimes it’s important to take some much-needed time out to do whatever makes you feel good. 


With the start of #selfimprovementmonth upon us, there’s no better time to treat yourself – whether that’s taking a long bath with luxurious products, burning your favorite scented candle or buying something you really want but (probably) don’t need.  

If you consider sleep a luxury and really value your eight hours a night, a pair of new pajamas and an eye mask will do wonders. Look for natural cotton and linen fabrics or lightweight silk blends and you’ll sleep better in no time.   

Buying new workout clothes and hitting the gym may be your favorite feel-good activity, but if relaxing at home is more your thing, make sure you surround yourself with things you love – that could be new bed sheets, fluffy cushions or anti-stress scented candles.

From beauty products and stationery to homeware and accessories, browse our pick of the best self care essentials...

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…

September is #selfimprovement month and no wonder the hashtag's already trending. At this time of year we're usually throwing ourselves into that 'new start, new season, new me' mindset. Because let's face it, we probably didn't keep all the resolutions we made in January so we at least deserve another shot...

Now if you know anything about self improvement you'll know it's not about being negative or being hard on yourself for failing to change, it's about baby steps, tiny wins and good vibes.


Self improvement starts with self care so we've put together a few handy tips to help you kickstart your self improvement journey. September's a good a time as any to start something, right? 

Take time for yourself 

It's easy to feel like things will never change if you feel as though you're always running around after other people. Take a night off, spend a weekend with your loved ones or just indulge in some alone time to focus on your thoughts and quiet your mind. 

Get more sleep 

Sleep is essential for our health. A proper night's sleep helps our brains and bodies to properly recharge so we can do our best mental and physical work during the day. Try and set yourself the task of having earlier nights this month and if you find it hard to drop off, try a little aromatherapy with candles, pillow sprays, diffusers and essential oils.

Write down your goals 

Writing down what you want to change and how you want to do it can really help to visualise and focus on your short-term and long-term self improvement goals.

Practice happiness

Take a little time to do things that make you feel good, like going for a long walk, taking a relaxing bath with a facemask on or listening to an inspiring podcast. Doing little things like this for yourself will help with cultivating a positive mindset and if you feel positive, the sky's the limit.

I found what is missing from our beauty routine! It’s sleeping masks. Sleeping masks are best to keep away any light that will disturb your eyes and interfere with your sleep. You wouldn’t believe the benefits of wearing an eyemask during your sleep! Besides helping you get a better quality sleep, sleeping masks also protect your eyes and prevent wrinkles. Who knew? #eyemasks #sleepingmasks #beauty #beautyroutine

Struggling to sleep in the summer heat? You’re not the only one. Seems like everyone’s circadian patterns are being disrupted by these warm summer nights but don’t fret, help is on the way…   


A decent night’s sleep is essential for our physical and mental health so eight hours of undisturbed shut-eye is a must. If the summer weather is keeping you up, try these tips to rest a little better and wake up feeling fresh.

Breathe

Deep breathing is the easiest way to relax so invest in essential oils, diffusers or pillow sprays and practice deep breathing for ten minutes while you settle down to sleep. You’ll find this helps you drift off quickly and that your heartbeat stays regular, helping you to sleep deeply and calmly.   

Lighten up

Opt for light layers made from natural fabrics like cotton, silk and linen. A pair of silk and lace pyjama shorts with a strappy camisole will feel cool and gentle against your skin, whereas an oversized cotton shirt will help your skin breathe in the heat.

Go natural

Choosing natural bed linen will also help to regulate your temperature while you sleep so consider investing in pure cotton and linen sheets and pillowcases.   

Cover up

No, we don’t mean cover your skin – just your eyes. Using a soft silk or cotton eye mask will encourage a deeper sleep. A gentle weight across the brow bones can help with relaxation and as sleep experts will tell you, the darker your surroundings are, the better you’ll sleep.

Feeling tired, sluggish and not particularly summer ready? It could be your diet. We looked to our panel of health and beauty experts for a few simple hacks to help you feel healthier, happier and ready to get your glow on this summer…   


Hydrate daily

Staying hydrated during the warmer months is so essential but often, we forget that we should be drinking a little more. To make sure you’re getting your daily H2O, invest in a cool bottle or fill a jug with water and keep it on your desk.   

TIP: Add lemon slices for a refreshing alkaline, electrolyte boost and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper for better digestion and to stem your cravings for sugar.   

Boost yourself

Drink green tea to refresh your body – matcha is great but if that’s a little intense, try a caffeine-free detox tea to reset your body and help flush out nasties. 

Watch your portion sizes

Use small bowls and measure out your snacks too. Weighing bits and pieces out into little containers to eat on the go always makes life easier too, especially if you find yourself feeling hangry in the afternoons.

Cook with recipes

Follow health-giving recipes exactly, don’t add more or less of anything and invest in a few cookbooks with easy, filling and nourishing recipes you can come back to time and time again.   

Keep a journal

This isn’t an excuse to obsess over food so don’t be hard on yourself, just try being mindful and record what you’re eating, how you’re feeling and whether you’ve had much sleep, exercised that day and so on. This will help you to find a balance and set realistic goals for yourself. 

Use coconut oil 

Not only great for your skin, this is a healthy fat that’s great for cooking with. Swap your vegetable oil for a dollop of coconut when you cook.    

Get your greens 

If this is a challenge for you try adding a sprinkle of spirulina to your foods, make green smoothies and juices to enjoy in the mornings or at lunchtime. You can also take supplements to keep your body balanced and stave off cravings.

Sometimes it's easy to get caught up in stress. We all know what it's like when pressure mounts at work and at home. Despite your hardest efforts to relax it's challenging to unwind without a little help. But you deserve to relax and luckily there are many successful stress busters that can help relieve your anxiety in less than 15 minutes. 


We picked out a few of our favourites to help you out. Here are best ways to fight stress and relax wherever you are... 

Meditate 

Just a few minutes of practice per day can help ease stress. According to research, a daily meditation session can transform the brain's neural pathways making you more resilient to stress and better at regulating your thoughts. 

Get fit 

Exercise is your go-to tip to combat those strung-out feelings because believe it or not, putting physical stress on your body through exercise can help relieve mental stress. 

People who exercise regularly are less like to experience anxiety because exercise lowers the body's stress hormones and helps release endorphins aka the all-natural happiness drug. 

Take supplements 

There are several supplements that are used to reduce stress and anxiety. Look for supplements that feature ingredients such as Omega-3 fatty acids, green tea, Lemon balm or valerian root known for its ability to relax the body and aid a gentler sleep. 

Editor’s tip: Don't forget to consult your doctor before taking supplements as some can interact with medications or have side effects. 

Light a candle 

Invest in a few soothing essential oils or burn a scented candle to reduce your feelings of anxiety. Some scents, such as lavender, rose, bergamot, chamomile and orange blossom, are incredibly calming. 

Spa at home 

Indulge in a luxurious spa experience at home. Simply prepare a bath with salts, scrubs, scents and music and get your pamper on. 

Avoid procrastination 

The best way to take control of your stress is to work on eliminating your  triggers. A big one is procrastination.Instead of stressing about all the things you should have been doing, take charge, be proactive and wave goodbye to procrastination. Get yourself a notepad and get into the habit of making a to-do list every day and prioritizing your tasks.

As we're going through the motions in 2018 many are already thinking of a summer holiday resort by the sea in an exotic location or at least enjoying a quick and rejuvenating city break. So you have organised your carry on, and your suitcase you've packed your beauty kit, your casual wear, and your evening wear. But what about your airport outfit? For the longest time celebrity culture has been associated with those glamorous looks snapped in between airport lounges and gates creating a new type of occasion: travel-wear.#000000"> 


If you're all about unassuming comfort go for Khloe Kardashian's or Nina Kravitz's nonchalant approach. An oversized hoodie, with a pair of black leggings, trainers and sunnies. Don't let the slouchy ease of the outfit fool you. This version is ultra chic especially paired with minimal and fresh-looking makeup. 

For a more elegant and classic version follow Victoria Beckham's example and go for a pair of jeans a white crisp open-collar shirt and throw on a long waist-fitting trench coat, and oversized sunnies. Because you just woke up from your long-haul flight beauty sleep. 

If you want to make a statement then go for unapologetic bold. Opt for a memorable colour like mustard or violet and pair it with white sneakers a slogan tee and sunglasses. Voila! Airport outfit sorted. 

So where are you headed this Spring? Go to our gallery for now for some extra airport style inspiration and then scroll down below to shop your favourite looks!

It's always a good time to start taking care of our skin. A comprehensive beauty routine can allow us to retain a youthful glowing skin for much longer. So what does that routine comprise of, you ask? Don't worry we have you covered! Read on for all the essentials you'll need.


Minimise those Pores 

The older we get the more expanded our pores likely to stay. Try a cleanser with salicylic acid that breaks down the oil in the pores. 

Try the Strip
 

In order to deflate and clean pores, you'll need some strips 

SPF 

Ageing skin's best friend is a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least an SPF 30. Slather a great portion of SPF on your face and body. 

Beauty Sleep

According to research if you sleep at least 15 minutes earlier you're bound to shed a few lines off your eyes. The dark circles will diminish significantly if you add a few more minutes to your sleep. Extra tip: log off and avoid exercise before going to bed. 

Slather on the Antioxidants 

Try products containing caffeine, green tea, pomegranate, or Coenzyme Q10 for the best results! 

Retinol Wonder 

Retinol really does wonders for the fine lines but don't overdo it as it can increase sun sensitivity making you itch possibly. Instead, dab small portions or dilute them with plain moisturiser.
