bM chats to: JULIE MONTAGU – THE FLEXI FOODIE

FROM THE MINUTE YOU MEET JULIE MONTAGU YOU FEEL COMPLETELY ENERGISED, HER POSITIVE VIBE JUST RADIATES.

We spent the day with her, and as you can see/read, the bM team were completely inspired. {It was a total #girlcrush situation!} Scroll down to see what we mean…


Julie Montagu is a-amazing. Her life reportoire is insane. She’s The Flexi Foodie, a massively well-regarded health guru {she was named one of the world’s Top Ten Holistic icons in the world} with three books to her name. She’s mum to four kids, was one of the stars of the Ladies of London, is married to the next Earl of Sandwich and is the future Countess of Sandwich. And if that’s not enough, she is also Ambassador for BFree Gluten Free Wraps, who made it all possible for this shoot to come about! {Thank you!}
