    • Monday Motivation - Choco-Blends Chia Seed Pudding

      This week's Monday Motivation is a healthy yet delicious recipe that can be used for breakfast, afternoon snack or even to help satisfy any after dinner sweet tooth.

      With simple, yet nutritional eating becoming more and more mainstream thanks to personalities such as Deliciously Ella, Madeline Shaw and The Body Coach the chia seed has become a staple ingredient to feature in your diet over the last year or so.

      Chia Seeds are an amazing source of healthy omega-3 fats, phosphorus and calcium, and fortunately it's an easy food to add to your diet. A 30g serving of chia provides an average adult with a third of their daily fibre intake which is important for digestive health, as well as nearly 10% of an adult's daily protein recommendation.
      On top of all that thanks to their abilities to expand when in liquid these little seeds swell and help to keep to keep us all fuller for longer - which also means less snacking on the wrong foods - YEY!

    • Friday Fix: When In... Miami

      This weekend anyone who is anyone will definitely be found in Miami - including many of the Melissa Odabash team!

      With the 11th annual Miami Swim Show - the only fashion week specifically dedicated to swimwear, taking place over the coming days, we are without a doubt that journalists, celebrities, models and social media personalities will be flocking to South Beach to take in the fashions, as well as the rays.

      Bikini babes Natasha Oakley and Rocky Barnes have already been spotted at many local haunts and as Miami is a city known for it's nightlife we thought we'd share our favourite place to visit for any post-show drinks!

      The Setai hotel in Miami is an exclusive beach resort which oozes luxury has homed the creme-de-la-creme of the A-List such as Beyonce and Jay-Z, Giselle, Simon Cowell and more. With an Asian inspired concept achieved through dark decor, water features, clean lines and an array of palm trees this hotel focuses on providing excellent service teamed with un-ashamed opulence - and you wonder why this is our venue of choice!

    • Shake Up Your Monday Mornings!

      We all know that Monday morning feeling when our energy levels are low, our eyes are struggling to stay open and our minds are totting up all the indulgences we ate and drank over the weekend - it's fair to say our office knew that feeling yesterday!
      For us ladies at Odabash Head Office, a go-to quick fix to help boost our immune system and help get some goodness back into our diets to wake us up for the week is always via a Monday morning shake.

      Our Nutri-Bullet is forever whizzing away as we all attempt to cram our five-a-day into a one glass of sometimes pleasant, sometimes not so pleasant goodness.
      Thanks to our health-conscious friends over at Naturya our first shakes of the week were given a new lease of life yesterday as we treated ourselves to some delicious new powders. Adding Naturya Blends powders to our shakes helped them to taste extra scrumptious, as well as being packed full of natural nutrients to help give our bodies an all important boost for the busy week ahead.

    • Friday Fix: #DistillingHappiness

      The sun is shining and it's the start of ANOTHER bank holiday weekend, as far as we are concerned there isn't much that could make us happier this Friday, and yet Roger & Gallet have gone and done just that.

      This iconic fragrance house have decided to spoil the women of London by #DistillingHappiness for three days. As of yesterday and through until tomorrow if you venture to High Street Kensington tube station you will find some very friendly women, dressed in fabulous purple t-shirts, stood next to some beautifully decorated floral bikes ready to 'distill' free bouquets of flowers to passers by.

    • Friday Fix: Tasty Treats at Prawn on the Lawn

      This Friday, we thought it was time to turn our attentions away from our external appearance and show some care and attention to our insides as healthy eating is something we take pretty seriously at Melissa Odabash - after all how else are we going to get our bikini bodies in time for summer?
      We are also firm believer's in the importance of treating ourselves to a meal out, and fortunately being based in London we are spoilt for choice with wonderful restaurants which still keep our clean eating on track.

      One of our regular haunts is the infamous Prawn on the Lawn based in the bustling area of Islington.

    • Migrating to Miami

      As winter is slowly coming to an end, we cannot help but to anticipate Spring more than usual due to New York’s indecisive weather. Like many, we are in need of some warm weather and an escape from the procrastinating sun. Since Mother Nature has New York playing quite the guessing game, we figured it is time to migrate to the south to Miami Beach for a taste of the good life!

    • LFW A/W 15 - Trend Round Up

      Well, that was short but sweet!
      London Fashion week has now been and gone and as the cobbles of Somerset House breathe a sigh of relief that they will no longer be clomped on by heels all day, and night, we have spent the day deciding what fashion delights we wanted to share with you.
      In the style stakes London definitely knows how to cram a lot of content into a very short space of time, with the constant stream of shows our Instagram's have hardly been able to cope with the about of pictures flooding onto our news feeds and our constant refreshing so that we can see the trends as and when they are shown.
      The past five days have made us very proud to be British and below we proudly present our top five trends of the last five days, and for the record, it was pretty tough having to narrow these down!


    • NYFW Autumn/Winter 2015

      It’s official, New York Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2015 has finally come to an end!
      Don’t get us wrong, we love the fact NYC’s Fashion Week ACTUALLY lasts for the duration of a week, but we all know as soon as the final runway has been walked that all fashion eyes turn their focus to our beloved London, however, New York has most definitely set the fashion standard high for A/W 15.

      After trawling through ALL the pictures, from ALL the shows (hard work we know, but someone has to do it) we have picked out the trends and after a lot of tough decision making have managed to whittle this down to our favourite five.

      Keep scrolling to discover what chic styles you need to be wearing this A/W!
