I’m Laurie. A twenty something blonde, self acceptance & wellbeing advocate, living life alcohol free.

London based marketing geek, yoga teacher in training & lifestyle writer. 

The blog: Girl & Tonic is my raw, honest journey towards loving myself more and improving my wellbeing. 

Do you want to:

Get connected with yourself and the world around you?

Work on self love & self acceptance?

Be more and work through all the shit to find your version of wellbeing?

Then Girl & Tonic is for you Black Heart on Twitter Twemoji 2.2.3


My version of wellbeing means removing alcohol, reading lots of books, meeting friends (and dates) for tea and doing a lot of yoga. For you it could mean choosing to have a night in and a bath rather than another night out drinking, taking a 30 day meditation challenge, simply pausing to think before you reach for a glass of wine or some chocolate when you’re feeling sad or starting a writing practice first thing in the morning.

Connection & community lights me up. If you’re looking for new ways to treat yourself, more ways to love yourself, the occasional event and a fresh (and clean) perspective on modern city living then you’re in the right place.
