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…

The Danish word hygge (pronounced ‘hue-guh’, FYI) is used to describe a feeling of coziness – so, what better time than the start of fall to bring the concept into your home?


The most important thing is making your apartment feel comfortable, so start by adding plenty of blankets and cushions to your living space. Look for super soft cashmere and wool pieces to snuggle up with when it’s cold outside.   

No cozy night in is complete without a scented candle – it will create the perfect atmosphere and fill the room with your favorite fall scents. Try warm, woody and leathery fragrances like Byredo’s ‘Tree House’ and Diptyque’s ‘Ambre’.   

Having friends over for dinner? Make the dining area feel more snug with fuzzy blankets and sheepskin rugs draped over the chairs, and serve hot drinks in mismatched handcrafted cups.   

Don’t neglect your balcony once the temperature drops – create an intimate outdoor space with hanging firefly lights, oversized scatter cushions and bean bags, and wrap up warm with chunky cable-knit throws and faux-fur slippers.   

Want to try the Scandi look this season? Transition into fall with our hygge home picks in the edit below…

It’s easy to see why the teddy coat has become the cover-up of choice for influencers and editors alike – not only is it incredibly warm, it also looks effortlessly cool with anything.   So, when the temperature drops below freezing and you don’t want to sacrifice your style, you know exactly what piece to invest in. Here’s how to wear autumn’s cosiest coat like a street style star.   


Maxi  

Spotted on the runway at Giambattista Valli and Max Mara, long teddy coats are the ultimate way to beat the cold – and look super chic while doing it. These styles look best worn with skinny jeans and flat loafers, à la Giorgia Tordini.   

Supersized   

Hailey Baldwin and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have both been snapped in oversized teddy coats, and we can’t think of a better way to stay warm when the winter weather hits. Layer yours over leather leggings or give it a sporty spin with this season’s chunky sneakers.   

Cropped

Shorter styles are just as cosy – influencers Camille Charrière and Jessie Bush are both fans. Choose a camel hue and try pairing yours with high-rise black trousers (extra points for patent styles) and ankle boots.   

Browse our edit of the best teddy coats for autumn below…

If, like us, you’ve been stalking Selena Gomez’s outfits on Instagram for quite some time now, you’re in luck. For the second time, the star has collaborated with luxury heritage brand Coach to bring you the best of her personal style mixed with the label’s New York cool.   
 
While the previous collection she designed with the brand consisted of handbags and leather goods, this time Gomez has introduced ready-to-wear – so now it couldn’t be easier to emulate the singer’s off-duty looks.   

Ranging from intarsia knit sweaters and hooded jackets to lace-trimmed slip dresses and faux fur-collared leather jackets, the collection is feminine and fun in equal parts. Plus, it’s instantly recognizable thanks to the playful bunny motif featured throughout.   

Selena’s favorite piece? She’s called out the Trail top-handle bag as her go-to accessory for dinner dates, but the Belt bag is a close second thanks to its convenient on-the-go shape.

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...

It’s official: the colour of autumn 2018 is undisputedly orange. Whether you rock a neon shade or a rich vintage-inspired hue, orange is the cheerful champion of our cool-weather line-ups…   


Successfully wearing the colour is, however, easier said than done. It’s a bold shade and one that’s best sported with an all-or-nothing approach. We looked to our editors for a few tips on how to nail the autumnal trend sweeping Instagram.  

Oversized  

A statement colour calls for a statement silhouette so go big or go home with this one, literally. Think oversized duster coats and puffer styles, flared or wide-leg trousers and boxy shirts and tees. A maxi dress or skirt is always a winner too.  

Utilitarian  

The sporty, utility-inspired trend is big for AW18 so think less ‘70s corduroy and more futuristic crepe and lamé. Try sporting simple culottes with a cropped metallic jacket or opt for a simple military-inspired look with a button-down shirt and straight-leg trousers in bright orange tones. 

Androgynous  

Gender fluidity is back and here to stay this season. Rock your orange pieces in simple silhouettes and cool, understated layers. Give sports-luxe a go with an orange varsity jacket, trending camouflage prints and matching chunky-soled sneakers.   

Colour blocked

Brave enough to try head-to-toe orange? Be sure to stay consistent with your choice of shade. Whether you opt for a pop-bright tone or a pale peachy orange, match your ensemble exactly to nail this season’s hottest colour trend.

Maximalism is set to be big this autumn and whether you’re revamping your wardrobe, your accessories line-up or your home, the eclectic trend is here to stay.  


Now when it comes to interior design nailing the maximalist trend can be tricky and there are a few rules to follow if you want to get it right. Basically, it all comes down to clashing prints…  

Power of three

When you’re clashing prints to create an eclectic, maximalist feel in your space, be sure to pick out no more than three strong prints. Whether you use these sparingly or cover an entire wall, be sure to limit your choice to two or three designs to keep things looking chic and considered rather than messy and out of control.   

Colour code

Picking out prints from the same colour family – like neutrals, pinks or monochrome – can really help to bring a space to life and character while still sticking to your chosen theme. Try an autumnal palette for the new season or channel 2018’s punk-inspired vibes with clashing animal prints.   

Accent and accessorise   

Rather than adorning every surface in your home with print, carefully select smaller statement print pieces to make the most of them. Opting for accent pieces and cool accessories will mean you can not only mix and match but this also gives you the option to tone your maximalist interior up or down depending on your mood.

A recent Instagram post of Kim Kardashian already has over three million likes (and counting) – while that may be to do with the fact she looks great, we think the neon-pink dress she’s wearing definitely helps.   

Blame Balenciaga – the label kicked off the trend on the Paris runway – but everyone is rocking this look right now. Kim K has since been spotted in a series of more neon looks, along with her sister Kylie Jenner, Bella Hadid and Blake Lively. Convinced yet?   

This micro trend is part of the ‘80s theme seen across plenty of Fall ‘18 collections, and it’s the perfect way to refresh your fall wardrobe – an antidote to a usually understated season of gray, black and navy.   

So, want to know how to wear neon satin now? It’s easier than you think. For Monday to Friday, take your styling cues from the Balenciaga runway and try a fluorescent top under a tailored jacket for a subtle flash of color.   

When it comes to the weekend, try neon-striped track pants or high-vis sneakers for an instant off-duty refresh. At night, anything goes: a neon satin clutch, a pair of pumps or a figure-hugging dress is all you need to make an impact.   

Shop our favourite silky neon pieces below and nail the look for yourself…

If you were wondering why you’ve spotted fewer marble surfaces on your feed it’s because there’s a fresh interiors trend taking over Instagram and Pinterest right now… 


Terrazzo, which takes its name from the Latin word ‘Terra’, meaning ground, is nothing new – it was created in the 16th century Italy as a way to reuse stone offcuts, and it’s characterized by its multicolored fragments. But thanks to its hard-wearing and sustainable qualities (and unlimited colour and material options), it’s making a major comeback. 

Terrazzo is no longer just for floors either – the playful patterned surface is now trending across everything from homeware to accessories. Want to work it into your apartment this fall? There are plenty of ways to do it... 

For tiny Mediterranean touches that will make a difference, try adding Terrazzo pots to your bedroom or bathroom, or place a modern speckled candle by the likes of Tom Dixon on your bedside table. We also love speckled storage – perfect for tackling clutter. 

If you want to work the trend into your living room, try a chic terrazzo-print bench or a comfy patterned bean bag. Or, if you’re ready for a full makeover, decorate the room with terrazzo wallpaper and opt for traditional stone countertops. 

Shop the edit below for our favourite takes on the trend…

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.
