About Cantara

Welcome to 'Simply Cantara' - a UK healthy lifestyle blog. I'll be sharing my journey to a fitter, healthier me, as well as tips to increase your productivity and simplify your lifestyle

Hi, I’m Cantara, a twenty-something London girl with a penchant for matcha lattes, cats and monochrome outfits. I started this blog as ‘Gymbags and Gladrags’. It gave me a way to share my fitness journey and keep me accountable as I tried to lose weight. I chose a made up name as a way of keeping my hobby blog a secret from anyone I knew in real life. Since then, I’ve grown older, discovered I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and as a result my attitude to losing weight has shifted slightly. I also wanted to expand the range of topics I wrote about because health and fitness is not all that I’m interested in. So now we have…   Simply Cantara.

No made-up names to hide behind, just me, simply striving to live my best life and I’m taking you along for the ride with me. You can expect posts on mindset, goal setting and self-care as well as good old fitness tips and motivation, yummy recipes, straightforward skincare and tricks to simplify your life. Oh, and wedding planning fun as I prepare to marry the love of my life later this year!
