Welcome to Hip & Healthy’s 12 days of FITMAS! What is this, you might ask? For the 12 days leading up to Christmas day, we’re giving you a little insight into how some of our favourite wellness influencers are spending Christmas, their favourite parts of the festive season and little nuggets of wisdom!

On the 7th day of FITMAS, Saskia Gregson-Williams of Naturally Sassy shares her New Year’s resolutions and what she’s looking forward to most in 2018!


What’s on your christmas wish list?
This year I’m being rather practical and asking for things I really need.  So I think I may know what’s under the tree for me this year, but I’m still incredibly excited to unwrap them! I’ve asked for a new computer case, mine has been around for far too many coffee spillings. I’ve asked for a new pair of APL’s in black as my current trainers are looking a little too worn in, a small waterproof makeup bag and my favourite Bare Minerals products. Their Friendship lipgloss is top of my makeup must haves. I’d also love the new Apple Watch, but I’m not sure Santa is going to be that generous.


What do you eat on Christmas day?
Christmas day in my family isn’t always so traditional, we often pick a cuisine and create a real family feast. A few years ago we did moroccan with big tagines, cous cous bowls, different chutneys – it was delicious, and so great for me as a non meat eater. Roasts are delicious, but the trimmings take time and it’s nice to spend as much time as we can together.


Do you have any new years resolutions? If so what are they?
I have a few new years resolutions, which are all about adding to my life instead of taking away, those never work! This year I’d love to add in a more consistent yoga practice, something totally different from the classes I teach and give me a little mental breather. Overall the resolutions all come back to working on my mental health, running a business can be quite overwhelming and I’m hoping I can implement some healthy habits to help this.


What are you most looking forward to in 2018?
I’m most excited for the launch of BalletBlastbySassy.com and a very exciting career move (hint hint) coming soon. There are so many changes in 2018, it’ll be a very exciting year!
