• I am a UK Coach in Running Fitness and a qualified Fitness Instructor.
  • I aim to use my knowledge and expertise in an accurate and professionally responsible manner.
  • Transparency is important in social media as is ethics in any writing or reporting. As a consequence, I aim to blog with integrity and will not provide false or misleading information.
  • All of the opinions on this website are honest and my own. You have the right to know if I have accepted money or samples in the process of formulating those views.
  • It is my policy to only accept compensation from companies I believe in and would already buy myself from/recommend.
  • A product mention or feature does not imply endorsement or recommendation of the product in question.
  • Sponsorship or other forms of compensation are clearly marked and will never influence the content of this site.

My Philosophy 

  • My aim is to motivate and inspire others to lead healthier lives. I do this by writing about nutrition, providing healthy lifestyle tips and reviewing products.
  • In my opinion, all foods can be eaten as part of a healthy balanced diet. However, I am a vegetarian which is reflected in the recipes I share.
  • I promote healthy lifestyles as a way of life, rather than fad/short-term diets.
  • This blog is a reflection of who I am and I will only blog about products and services I truly love.
  • I am a professional blogger, however, I also have a ‘day job’. I read and appreciate all comments and feedback and do my best to respond to them all.

Product/Service Reviews & Features

  • I only ever review or feature products/services which I personally would buy.
  • I am lucky enough to be occasionally sent samples of products to try. However, I only blog about the ones that I like and would buy with my own money. If I do receive a sample this will be acknowledged.
  • If I do not like a product, rather than write a negative review, I will not feature it on my blog. I cannot and will not be swayed by incentives of any form.

Sponsored Blog Posts

  • If a blog post is marked as “sponsored/inspired by..”, “in collaboration with..” or “featured”, a company has compensated me or the time taken to write it. Regardless, all comments are my own, are 100% honest and are not influenced by the incentive.
  • Any rewards received do not play a part in the products and services featured/used or statements written on this blog.
  • I decline sponsored blog posts from companies that I do not believe will enhance the wellbeing of my readers. 

Discount Codes

  • I occasionally post carefully selected discount codes which reduce the price of certain products that I link to 
  • Any rewards received do not play a part in the products and services featured/used or statements written on this blog.

Competitions & Giveaways

  • I periodically hold competitions/giveaways on my blog as a way of interacting with my readers and providing an opportunity for others to try new products.
  • I do not promote the products that I giveaway more than others that I do not.
  • Most of the giveaway prizes featured have been provided to me free of charge, however, sometimes I use my own money to purchase them.
  • I am very selective about the products that I giveaway. 
  • Most of my competitions and giveaways are carried out using Rafflecopter where winners are picked at random, using the widget itself. Winners are announced within the widget, as well as on social media.
  • Unless stated otherwise, giveaways are open to UK residents only due to postage.
