Hemsley + Hemsley: Good + Simple Book Launch

Hi everyone!

I’ve been a bit absent from the blog recently due to exams, but I’ve got some really exciting stuff coming up with my blog soon that I can’t wait to share with you all!

As for the main focus of this post, those of you who have been following me on here for a while will know that in the summer I was lucky enough to get work experience with the gorgeous Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley, who are my biggest inspiration. They were incredibly generous and included me in some really exciting events both during my summer holidays and also in later events, such as Fare Healthy. As well as helping with the preparation for supper clubs, I was able to help out on the book shoot for their second book Good + Simple, which has just been released.


On Monday evening, I went to the Mondrian London to celebrate the book launch, which was full of all the famous foodies, delicious bite-sized tasters from their new book and Raw Press green juices among the cocktails. I had an amazing time and felt incredibly proud of what these two have achieved, as well as extremely honoured that I was made to be a part of it. I didn’t think I could feel any happier, until I spotted my name in the back! This post is really just a huge thank you to Jasmine and Melissa, and the whole of the Hemsley team, for everything they’ve done for me and for some truly great moments.


All of the hard work has paid off; the recipes look amazing, the photography is stunning, and Good + Simple is absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to get cooking from it! If you haven’t got your copy yet, you can find it here.

    This is so awesome! How lovely of them to include you in the credits. They obviously valued your contribution and all this experience will stand you in such good stead for the future. I am making the assumption that you want to go on to work in fitness and nutrition and food, but i’d love to know what your actual plans are. You’re in such a great position too, being so young. I think all your social media is great, and you’re a very good role model to other young girls.

      It was incredibly kind of them and something I’ll always be grateful for! That’s so kind of you, thank you! You’re definitely right in thinking that nutrition and fitness are areas that I hope to work in, but exactly what I want to do isn’t clear yet! I’ve been researching the topic quite a bit recently, and hope I’ll find a something eventually. Thank you! Xx
