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 […]

Lucky in (40ish) Love

My first tennis skirt was from a brand called Lucky in Love that I discovered on Instagram. From the moment I put on that tennis skirt my passion for tennis fashion was born. I’ve spoken about this brand in other posts, and I even wrote an article for Tennis Identity on them, as I honestly […]

If you are travelling to the Australian Open this year, then please just know that I am very jealous of you and hope you suffer terribly the heat and jet-lag. Just kidding! I actually hope you will tell me all about how awesome it is in the comments to this blog post or on my […]

As we move into the last week of 2016 I have been reflecting on the highs (that would be the aces) and lows (you guessed it, the double faults) of this past year. Looking back I can happily say that the highs far outweighed the lows, and I have finally found the perfect work-life balance […]

A Look Inside My Tennis Bag

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

I am a bit rubbish at buying Christmas presents. I have given up trying to think of imaginative presents for my mum, 3 brothers and their other halves, 6 nephews/nieces, my partner and his 2 kids…and so most of them get a bottle of Italian wine (not the kids), some handmade pasta or an Amazon […]
