Recently I have been loving getting back into my daily workouts and I couldn’t be anymore motivated especially since receiving the new Pink Soda Sport gym clothing! So I thought I’d share with you one of my favourite workout routines as well as my favourite gym wear to work out in.

I love the Brushed Metallic Panel Leggings as they’re high waisted and look so good on. I love having fitness leggings which aren’t just the typical black and the mesh detailing looks so pretty too! They’re so comfortable which is such a bonus. You look good as well as feel good.

I’ve also been loving the Tape Longline Zip Up Hoodie as its super long which is perfect for when its cold and you need something to throw on and it can mix and match with any of the leggings and sports bras I mean you can’t go wrong with it.

Next, onto the workout routine I’ve been loving! Do see the info-graphic below too!! It’s a easy 4 step workout which can be done in under 30 minutes every day to help with your abdominal area and legs.

Jump rope // Jumping rope is one of the fastest ways to burn calories as well as it being enjoyable. It improves density which is perfect if your wanting to tone as well become more athletic.

Plank // The plank is a popular exercise to build your core as it builds your strength to sculpt and tone your waistline and contribute to your posture.  Depending on your preference you can try and engage as many parts of your body too. Again this also strengthens muscles and bones.

Weight Lunges // Lunges are effective in engaging your glutes and quadriceps. It also strengthens your legs and arm strength with the use of the weights as by doing two things at once your killing two birds with one stone. By also strengthening your upper body and arms.

Jog & Stretch // Finally last but not least jogging is a vital exercise as it improves your body’s performance in delivering oxygen efficiently as well as allowing muscle toning for the legs and arms. Stretching is crucial when it comes to workout soo always stretch before and after as they stay strong and flexible instead of short an tight.

Yes guys I’m back again with another post, this is one I’ve been very excited about. I got contacted to review some fitness wear and I honestly couldn’t take up a better offer. I love fitness clothing, especially clothing that looks fresh and feels comfy I mean it’s a win win. I always wanted to share with you you a couple of tips when staying fit.

Whether its working out or going to the gym Get The Label  have gym wear and trainers of all brands at affordable prices. This is great to vary your wardrobe as if your like me and you feel as though you need to look good when working out or when your going for a run Get The Label is where you need to go!

Adidas Originals Superstar Trackpants – Get the label. These track pants are lightweight perfect to run and work out in and are slim fit which means they are flattering which I love. I couldn’t be happier with these they’re easy to style with a sports bra or either a t-shirt.

Nike Obsessed T-shirt – Get the label. This t-shirt is super cute and I love the print on the back as well as the style. The colour allows you to easily style it with other sports leggings.

Top fitness tips:        

Have a clear goal // Visualize what you want to achieve in the time period you have. The clearer the vision you have the better progress you’ll make and want to progress further.

Do what YOU want // If your in the gym as cheesy as this sounds use the equipment you wish to use, not jump on the bandwagon and do what others are doing because this is the easiest and best way to stay focused and achieve your goal in the long run.

Never do the same work out // Always change the work outs you do change is the best way to move forward, it’s not always about squats and press ups everyday.

Get a fitness buddy // Having someone who’s company you enjoy getting fit with you is a good source of motivation as helping each other each step of the way is vital.

Run and feel the burn // Running is one of my favourite things to do, changing up your physical activity is great for the body especially and good for the mind spiritually it takes weights of your shoulders and clears stress.

Last week I was invited down to Selfridges at the Trafford Centre for the Everybody’s Beauty Event. This was to celebrate the beauty of difference with an evening of festivities, pampering beauty experiences, complimentary drinks and special treats from brands we all love. As well as 15-minute beauty fixes across all counters.

As soon as I walked in it consisted of such a fun and filled atmosphere. I waked around in a circle stopping off at all of my favourite brands. I first stopped at Clarins where the lovely ladies showed me what was best to use on my skin type which was so helpful. I then stopped at Jo Malone where I got a complimentary hand massage. Then my favourite couple of stops were the beauty counters Urban Decay, MAC, Illamasqua and Charlotte Tilbury. I took a look at the Alice in wonderland looking through the glass pallete and honestly I couldn’t want anything more its such a pretty pallete.

The DJ was mixing some great tunes whilst the dancers just outside were performing a routine which was so beautiful (It made me wish I could dance). Drinks and mocktails were being offered and I had to grab myself one! Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves as they were getting complimentary treatments and tips on tricks on any beauty they deemed suitable for themselves.

 I got introduced to TruBe at the event. TruBe is a personal training app, however it is tailored to what your concerns are. They were in store during the event offering guests of the event, 10 minute nutrition and fitness consultation. I went over and met the 2 lovely representatives who told me more on TruBe and what it consisted of. It’s similar to Uber however you select a time and place for your workout then a type of workout such as kickboxing or yoga. Your then able to select your trainer, and get fit! I mean its as simple as that! I will be doing another post on TruBe soon giving you more information so keep an eye out!
I enjoyed all the complimentary treatments, advice on beauty for my skin and a look into what is new in at SelfridgesSelfridges always have events and other amazing in-store activities so keep an eye out for the next ones!

IMAG3386

As I promised I’d do another post for you with Vapiano Manchester, however this is slightly different to the previous one. Vapiano are introducing a diet plan, as they teamed up with Dr Sarah Shenker a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist. This diet plan will enhance runners diets for the Great Manchester Run. Sarah states  ‘It’s important to balance your carbohydrate intake with plenty of protein. The delicious pasta dishes from Vapiano can be a big part of your fitness plan whether you’re a runner, cyclist, body builder or partake in any regular sport.

The Great Manchester Run is creeping up on us as its on Sunday 22nd May 2016. This is a good time period for runners to test the diet plan as training for a longer distance race like a half or full marathon, you will need to maximize your glycogen stores by eating plenty of carbohydrate foods 2-3 days before the big day. Vapiano is perfect for this as Pasta Pomodoro is said to top up carbohydrate (glycogen) stores. The meal eaten the night before is crucial in delivering the last top up of glycogen. Also, Rucola ravioli which glycogen stores will be depleted so carbohydrate from pasta is important to help muscles recover. There is plenty of whey protein from the ricotta which delivers special amino acids that are effective in helping to repair the muscles and prevent muscle soreness.

Vapiano is a great restaurant to go to, primarily as there is a variety of dishes to add to your carbohydrate load as this is essential. A variety of pasta dishes are available made fresh for you whilst you watch the magic happen!

Check out the full diet plan here.

Pick up your t-shirt at you local Vapiano too!

Steps towards a healthy lifestyle!

IMAG3084 IMAG3085 IMAG3088 IMAG3090

Hey guys!

I hope you guys are well and as happy as I am in this horrible British weather. It’s been a long week and college seems to be getting harder and harder but I guess you’ve got to get though the rough days to see the good days right?

So today I wanted to start a new aspect to my blog as you may have guessed it – a healthy lifestyle! As a main new year’s resolution I set myself to stop eating junk as well as getting fitter. I have stuck to it so far with eating more fruit as a substitute to chocolate. Also, ensuring I exercise and walk a lot everyday and hit the gym once a week too. All these little pieces add up quite nicely to making you much healthier and increasing your activity of exercise.

So from now I will share every month or so my top tips for staying healthy and work outs to ensure you are maintaining that exercise.  As I’ve mentioned previously I’m not an expert of any sort all tips are based on experience and have worked for me so I’d think it’d benefit you therefore I’m sharing them with you guys.

1// Ensure you start your day with a small but powerful breakfast – Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gets you alive and awake for your long day ahead so its crucial you feed your system with powerful foods. A perfect idea, which is also a trend right now is a power drink made in the nutribullet. This is the perfect solution to adding a variety of healthy components into one. Firstly, start by adding some of your favourite fruits like blueberries,mango and pineapple in small proportion then add a little salad so this could be rocket or spinach whichever floats your boat. Then some key segments would be a few nuts, pumpkin seeds and gogi berries which are an amazing trigger for the brain and to top it off add some water. Just for breakfast you’ve got your five a day as well as water and brain food – its a win win really!

2// Have frequent but small meals – It’s crucial to keep your stomach happy, however not too much so the best thing to do is have small meals containing healthy foods this could be either a salad with avocado, tuna and even meat – which is my favourite! Also, add a squeeze of lemon as its good for loosing weight. This could even be your favourite meal but just substituting anything unhealthy with something healthy. During the day a perfect snack or just something to keep you going would be a belvita breakfast biscuit.

3// Workout & Walk often – Most people don’t see walking in the light that it should be seen as predominantly its one of the easiest ways of burning calories and the easiest style of exercise. Instead of getting in the car to reach a destination close to you just walk it’s perfect to get some fresh air and ask a few friends to go on walk its a good way to socialize and do good for your body. Workouts have easily become one of my favourite things to do everyday as if your like me walking can seem bland but working out you can go onto Youtube and there is a variety of workouts  you can follow and once you’ve gotten the hang of it you can make your own to do whilst listening to your favourite music.

4// Go to the gym – Most people prefer to go to the gym rather than working out but whatever suites you as a person is best. However, the gym can boost your health and muscular strength too so even if it is once a week your still getting that extra strength whilst working on the components of your body you wish to improve.

These are all a few tips I’ve learnt across the past month, I hope they can help you!

Pink Soda Sport♥

IMAG2896 IMAG2966  IMAG2987 IMAG2872IMAG2877PicMonkey Collage

Hey guys!

On Thursday a tote bag filled with Pink Soda Sport sportswear was delivered. I couldn’t maintain my excitement. I was super happy!! Pink Soda Sport is a brand stocked in JD for women who love to look great when getting active or working out. All the pieces in the collection are so so beautiful but I’m totally in love with the pieces I received. As one of my new years resolutions was to get toned and fit this sportswear is going to get me even more motivated to hit the gym because in this gear you look flawless while working out, its a win win!

Pink Soda Sport Panel Crew Sweatshirt // The comfort of this is unreal. It’s perfect for wearing over a sports bra then taking off if you feel too warm. Even on its own it’s perfect to work out in and even a cheeky lounge around the house. I know I’m going to be living in mine.

Pink Soda Sport Crackle Bra // Why haven’t I got more than one sports bra? They’re the comfiest things around! Seriously if you don’t own one go out and get one they feel amazing and are just so good for working out in!

Pink Soda Sport Logo Slim Jogging Pants // Joggers are my favourite thing in life. However, I do find it hard to find ones that are slim fit – but these do the job perfectly. They add that slight feminism to them rather than baggy and loose. So you look the part when working out which I think is such a good thought.

I love all the pieces together but I’m certainly sure you could style them with other pieces from the collection! I styled my outfit with my Adidas Originals Superstars which you know how much I love! They compliment each other o well!
