Is My Life Bidi Badu?

Apparently the Bidi Badu life is magical, slightly crazy, and always positive and authentic. Is my life Bidi Badu? My partner would definitely say I am slightly crazy (but who doesn’t talk to themselves in funny voices, sing songs from musicals in the shower and twerk whilst making dinner?!) and I try and be as […]

What to Wear To Play Tennis in the Spring

Although it is still a bit touch and go, the weather has certainly improved in Italy and I have already trained outside at least 3 times (take a look at my YouTube video to catch some clips of me training for the first time outside on clay this year). As we move from winter to […]

A Look Inside My Tennis Bag

If there is one thing that I am especially terrible at, it is cleaning out myΒ handbags. Much like the drawers in my house, they are full of things I really should have already thrown away. If you delve inside any of the bags stored in my wardrobe you are likely to find most, if not […]

Why I Prefer Running in the Winter

Have you ever gone for a runΒ in winter? If not, why not – is it the cold that puts you off, or perhaps the dark mornings/evenings? Before I went for my first run in the winter, I was a bit apprehensive. I knew I hadn’t enjoyed doing sportsΒ at school during the winter and I couldn’t […]

Christmas Gift Ideas for Tennis Lovers
