Why Do You Workout?

I've decided to write January off and start a fresh in February.  Did anyone else do that? January was just a bit of a rubbish month for me but I'm determined not to let it ruin the rest of my year.  I have so many goals for this year already and now I'm excited!

One of my goals for this year is to stay fit and healthy.  I've always been really good at going to the gym and people often ask me how I keep that habit up so I thought I'd share some of the reasons why I workout and maybe inspire you with some of your fitness goals.

Body Transformation

It's amazing what the human body can do if you help it reach it's potential.  When I workout I can see my body changing inside and out.  I see muscle growth and a more tone and lean self but also my well being improves, I can push myself for longer each time and I feel good.


I always find I sleep better after a good exercise class.


Despite being able to sleep better because it wears me out, in the long run I have more energy each time I exercise and I can push myself that little bit further.


Exercise is great for stress relief.  As a lawyer my day job can be quite trying and so a good cardio class or even yoga class can wipe all negativities of the day away.

Weight Gain

I've always been underweight since I was a child.  I have a very fast metabolism and find it hard to gain weight through food.  However, by doing certain exercises in the gym combined with lots of protein I can gain weight by gaining muscle.

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
