My Fitness Regime

I could have sworn I'd done a fitness regime post before because I was going to title this 'My Fitness Regime: UPDATED', however, I can't find anything anywhere so I guess this is my first one!  

Anyway, in that case, I better give you a bit of background on my fitness journey.  I'm a trained dancer and went to stage school from about the age of 3 all the way until I was 18.  I took GCSE and A-Level dance and have passed every level of ISTD ballet, tap, modern & jazz.

After leaving school I took up gym and starting going to classes to keep my fitness levels up.  I did lots of cardio and a few pilates and yoga classes to keep my muscle stretched and a good posture.  I always shied away from weights as I thought they would make me bulky and butch.

However, this year I did some research into the best forms of exercise and what to eat for my body type and have realised that actually weight exercises are really important.  By doing weights we will not only tone up but will lose weight easier/maintain a healthy weight because you have more muscle.

So now I do 6 classes a week which consist of:

I get a real mixture in there and have noticed a difference in my figure.  I have toned up but without getting bulky as I don't lift massive weights.  I also have a lot more energy and flexibility which is exactly what I want to get from my workouts.

Every 6 months or so I generally change up my workout routine but this is what's working for me at the moment along with a diet of carbs and protein.  I have also tried to cut down on sugar.

Here are my favourite websites on fitness:

  5. How was Rachael Attard compared to Kayla? I've been doing Kayla Itnes for 2 years but want to focus more on my body type as a mesomorph with very strong legs Scared of losing all the tone I got from Kayla, im wanting to lose muscle mass on my legs. Let me know your experience.

  6. Try dancing or take a yoga class. You could also do a boxing or yoga class. If you don't like a certain activity, you don't have to try it again, but will burn some calories just trying. Look here

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
