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…

It’s amazing how a little sunshine can help you to see things in a new light – like that corner of the bedroom that’s been a little neglected lately, or the downstairs bathroom that could use a spruce up.

This week luxury retailer and our go-to for high-end style Mytheresa.com has joined forces with Christian Louboutin to pre-launch the designer’s most exciting collection to date... 


The Loubikraft collection repurposes the kraft paper of Louboutin’s iconic shopping bags and shoe boxes to create a selection of cool, contemporary designs that honour the history, craftsmanship and character of the brand. 

Instantly recognisable in red and stamped with the Christian Louboutin logo, the capsule collection consists of a pair of classic stiletto pumps, ankle boots and a chain-strap clutch – all created using Mr. Louboutin’s signature Trash technique. 

To celebrate the Loubikraft launch, Rihanna’s choreographer Dashaun Wesley worked with three dancers to create a unique concept video, showcasing the New York skyline and the playful new collection. 

Mytheresa.com is pre-launching the collection three days ahead of the global launch to give you exclusive access and to celebrate Christian Louboutin launching on mytheresa.com this month.

Breaking a sweat shouldn’t mean compromising on style but all too often our choices for comfortable clothing to work out in are limited – a baggy T-shirt and a pair of old leggings might do the trick but they’re hardly inspiring. 

Luckily, brands everywhere have upped their activewear game, offering us a host of affordable and high-end options for every body type to help us look as good as that HIIT session or morning run makes us feel. 

With the likes of Sweaty Betty catering for all manner of activities and launching covetable designer collabs, and leading sneaker brands finally making fashion-forward trainers we can fall in love with, it’s easy to look our best while working on our bods. 

So, whether you favour gentle yoga stretches or full-on bootcamp vibes, we’ve rounded up some of the most gorgeous pieces to help you get your glow on.

If you thought that athleisure was only limited to clothes, you are wrong. Sports trends take over all aspects of your look this season, and the swimwear is not indifferent. If you're going to put on your swimsuit this spring, it's better if it's sporty.Credits: pinterest

Just around Springtime, we all think of a little weekend retreat. It's the perfect way to have some fun and relax without breaking the bank. So now you've booked the flights, and can't wait to enjoy your newly reserved Airbnb or hotel room. But, before all of that, you need to go through the tedious task of packing. Unfortunately, packing for a quick getaway might be more daunting than a longer trip as you have to fit all of your essentials in a small travel bag. In other words, packing smart and making the most out of limited space is of the essence. 


Here are the five essentials you'll need for a quick getaway: 

CLOTHES 

Take advantage of an app like AccuWeather and check the following 7 days. Then, you can plan ahead for the exact outfits you'll need instead of guessing if you'll need a coat for example or a light denim jacket. Open your closet and choose your favourite day and slip dress, shorts, t-shirts, and sleepwear. 

SHOES 

It's true that many times we tend to pack items that we don't even take out of the suitcase and that usually involves high stilettos that are too uncomfortable for holiday life. Instead, go for a pair of sliders if you're going to a warmer climate or trainers. Try smart pointy flats, ancient Greek sandals or a pair of your comfiest mid-heel ankle boots.

SWIMWEAR 

If you are going to a summer holiday resort, you should pack at least two pairs of bathing suits. Try a bikini and a one piece for variety. Pack a sarong wrap or a comfy skirt that you can sport to the nearby cafe after your morning dip.

ACCESSORIES 

Regardless of the climate go for a pair of classic black sunnies with a good UV filter, and add a super stylish and practical sunhat. We absolutely love the woven straw sunhat that you can buy upon your arrival. There's no need to pack a hat in a confined space that will only get squashed in the end. 

BAGS 

As for bags, go for a simple beach bag (the straw version is more classic while you can also go for a plastic edition which is on trend and more waterproof). Pack a small clutch for your evening outings and a cross body bag for sight-seeing and roaming the undiscovered city. Ready to start packing? Shop all of the essentials from our expert edit below!

Over the past two rounds of fashion month, one recurring beauty trend we've spotted on the runways are graphic manicures; whether they've been bold and colourful or slick and monochromatic, there's a myriad of ways in which graphic and minimalist nails can be done.

From a dot to a line, a simple detail, this manicure was on every show: Opening Ceremony, Kate Spade, 3.1 Phillip Lim... you name it. Every colour is yours to play with, but our favour goes to black and metallic designs. And no need for a professional, you can try it yourself with a hair pin or pencil point dipped into nail polish before applying it to your nails. This minimal manicure won't let people indifferent. 

If you're more into plain colours, this season trend is all about lilac, following the colour of the year Ultra Violet. From head to toes, you can embrace this soft, pastel colour, for a smooth entry into Spring. 

And last but not least, metallic and glitter nail polishes are always there to bring some sparkle in your outfit. Shiny and glamorous make-up and outfits should not be limited to Christmas and Red Carpet, everyday should be a party, and that small fantasy will be the trick. And if you don't feel confident enough to rock a full sparkly manicure, an accent nail is an original way to embrace the trend. 

Head to the gallery above for nail art design inspo and a tutorial by Jaunty Juli then shop the kit below.

We haven't forgotten about nail care either so check out what nail strengtheners and cuticle oils from OPI, Butter London, Nails Inc. and Deborah Lippmann we've lined up too... Shop our edit below!

Happy Mother's Day! To celebrate the day, we recently caught up with new mummy and fashion blogger Vaida. She is the author of the blog Fashion Addicted and the Instagram account @fashionbyvaida, where she documents her adventures in fashion, beauty travelling and of course parenting. Read her interview below and find out the best Mother's Day gifts she suggests on her exclusive list below. 


What compelled you to start your own fashion & lifestyle blog? 

I started my fashion career as a model but it just wasn’t for me.  Despite that I still was into fashion very much. After constantly being approached by girls and asked where I bought one or another item I decided to create fashion blog and share all my outfit details there. 

What do you enjoy most about the creative process? 

Even it’s hard work I enjoy every bit of it. From creating an outfit to posting it on the blog/Instagram and all the bits in between: looking for beautiful spots to shoot, posing or creating a flatlay, taking pictures, editing them. And the most enjoyable thing is to get positive reactions from my readers. 

What are the challenges and also the benefits of being a freelance content creator and influencer especially being a new mum? 

I love being independent, I can work cosily on my sofa watching my baby playing around. I think that’s the best thing. However being a mum and freelancing has cons too. I am limited to attend various events and sometimes plans can be changed because of my babies needs. 

What are your non-negotiables regarding your wellness routine? 

Having a bath with lot’s of bubbles, candles and relaxing music on Sundays is my best wellness time. 

How would you describe your personal style? Can you give us an example by styling your go-to outfit featuring your favourite brands? 

In one word I would say it’s elegant. I usually choose classic pieces. Mango white suit with Gucci handbag and Zara heels. 

What are your new mum lifesaver products that you can't live without? 

Mama Mio products are wonderful for both mums to be and new mums. 

You're always travelling. Which one of your recent destinations was the most memorable to you and why? 

Probably the best memories are from Mauritius (we got married there) and Thailand. Everything is so different there, nature is mesmerising, people are relaxed and the food is super delicious. 

What are you working on at the moment? Do you have any specific goals for this year? 

I have Build a Bear project coming up. I am going with my boy to Build a Bear workshop to create Easter bunny. I am sure we will have a lot of fun. I have also few beauty and fashion projects coming up soon so keep your eyes peeled and follow my blog Fashion Addicted and Instagram account @fashionbyvaida
