FIT IS NOT A DESTINATION IT'S A WAY OF LIFE

Keeping fit is something I try and include in my daily lifestyle routine, but we all know it is so easy to get off track sometimes . I am pretty sure we all would love to have that toned body we see all over instagram which motivates us for about ten minutes and we go and end up eating chocolate those ten minutes later haha trust me we have all been there! However recently I have been trying to be good not by restricting myself or completely cutting something out of my diet but just by making a few changes in my daily routine which have been helping me to tone up and although I am not there yet I can definitely see progress and want to keep it up. 

I find fitness posts really helpful as you can see what others do and learn some new tips and tricks you can incorporate in to your own personal lifestyle. Today I'll talk about my top five tips on how to tone up and have a slightly healthier lifestyle not just to loose weight but feel better too.Of course what works for me may not work for you but regardless here's the steps I have been taking to get my oh so called 'dream body'

One: I am a true believer that 'Abs are made in the kitchen' you can exercise for hours but if your diet is poor and high in fats and sugars you simply will not see any results. What works for me is still having everything I like to eat just limiting the junk to as little as possible. 

Two: Exercise is very important I like to do a mixture of cardio and strength training , personally I see results much quicker when I do more strength training  , cardio alone will not tone you up at least thats the case with me. I enjoy taking classes at the gym I go to I mostly do body pump  body attack , zumba and aerobics , but I also train at the gym on top of doing those classes I like to switch it up.

Three: Green Tea and Water are really going to help you beat that bloated belly and keep everything flowing haha! I try to drink at least 2 litres of water and 2/3 cups of green tea a day , they are also great for your skin .

Four: Take it step by step, noting happens overnight and you have to be patient theres no need to starve or over exercise ladies this will only lead to failure as you will not be able to stick this kind of a lifestyle for long.

Five: Buy yourself some cute gym wear! This really helps at actually making you want to go to the gym! I recently invested in a few gym tops and leggins and I can assure you its like having new clothes you simply want to wear it and get out in it. It works! 

Lastly I wanted to touch up on the supplements I have been taking, now I am not saying this is something you need or should invest in but I have been taking them and do believe they have been helping me to achieve my goals. The first one is protein powder , the one I am using at the moment is the Protein Works Diet Whey which tastes really good and is super affordable. In terms of multivitamins I take a multivitamin as well as Omega 3 fish oil every night. Recently I also incorporated this Fat Killer which you take in the morning and prior to your work out now I know this is not something that everyone approves of and I haven't been using it long enough to tell you if it's working or not but I will do an updated review once I have used it all up.

I hope you have found this helpful and if you have any questions or tips do leave them in the comments below. xo

Bright Reds





  







I went on a little shopping trip to Westfield yesterday and here's what I wore, since it's been getting a little chilly in London I word this gorgeous fluffy Primark Jumper , yes that is another bargain purchase which I am totally loving, paired with my bright red pants which have made an appearance on my blog before , I just simply love how comfortable yet stylish they are. Shoes no surprise there ey! I'm just making the most out of wearing these comfortable beauties before it gets too cold to wear sandals heh any excuse is good right?! Bag wise this is another Primark find and I love it! at £10 I simply couldn't say no and have already had so many compliments on it! This Make up look is definitely not something I rock on regular basis anyone who's been following my blog for a while knows I am not really a red lipstick kinda girl but I am loving this bright red lipstick from MUA, with  this particular outfit I think it really pulls it all together! What do you think?


Glam Glow Event & Review

































A few weeks back I was invited to the Glam Glow event as they were launching their products in Mark's& Spencer's , I was pretty excited to be attending , I have heard so many good things about this mask I was interested in finding out more about the brand. 



The event was a great turn out, the founders of Glam Glow told us all about the products and how the brand began it was actually quiet inspiring to listen to their story as they started off with $80 experiment which turned out to be an absolute success , Glam Glow is now an international brand, with many beauty awards and a very positive feedback from Celebrities to us bloggers. 



They originally created this product as a 'behind the scenes use in Holywood's entertainment industry' it was a product designed to be a quick fix to have camera ready and glowing complexion. 

So what makes GLAMGLOW different to all the products out there?

All GLAMGLOW products contain very high quality ingredients to help you get that glow and great results in such a short amount of time and literally be a quick fix on those days when you really need one. 

The brand did start of with a mask only however since they had such great feedback they have expanded and how launched an eye treatment, a hydrating treatment as well as a newer exfoliating face mask.

I have tried and tested them all and below written short reviews of all their products.




YOUTHMUD® TinglexfoliateTreatment (£49.50, 50g, £25.00, 15g)

 What They Claim:gives instant skin gratification; a 10 minute ‘Facial in a Jar’ this incredible exfoliating mud mask treatment will brighten, tighten and smooth skin in one hit. Containing Volcanic Minerals, French Sea Clay and TEAOXI® it will deliver everything you need for Super Radiant Skin.

My Opinion: Personally I have used this a few times and can assure you this face mask is fabulous, it feels very light on the skin unlike other mud face mask which I find can feel quiet heavy and uncomfortable this is not the case with this one. It has very fine grains which you notice once you apply this  which are there to be used as a gentle exfoliator once the mask has set , to remove it your suppose to use gentle circular motions which will gently remove all the dead skin cells. After just a few uses I noticed my skin looks a lot more radiant and vibrant, this product is a must have for anyone who would like a clearing but also brightening treatment, its almost one of those multifunctional products that actually works. Rating 5/5

SUPERMUD®Clearing Treatment (£34.99, 30g) 

What they claim: is a ‘Wonder Solution’, renewing and clearing the skin as it sweeps away impurities and toxins. Amazingly detoxifying it’s fantastic for fighting all common skin concerns, restoring and rejuvenating as the unique pore-matrix extracts congestion for seemingly poreless skin. Use as a complete facial mask or as a one-spot treatment.

My Opinion: This really helps to clear out your pimples and spots , don't be afraid if after the first few uses you do get a pimple or too , the mask is simply purifying your skin and bringing out all the 'imperfections' pretty grim I know hah but I can assure you with regular use your skin really does improve and I have noticed my pores are looking a lot better too which is something I struggle with , I find my skin hardly ever gets pimples its more blackheads and whiteheads that tend to be my concerns. Rating 5/5


BRIGHTMUD® Eye Treatment (£34.99.00, x12 Chrome Cells) the World’s first Tap-On-Wipe Off non-drying mud treatment with pioneering FrostWipeTM technology, an innovative application delivery system infuses powerful active ingredients. Whilst 14% Nitroffeine, a powerful blend of six caffeine sources gives instant awakening results. After just three minutes, wipe off (No Water Required!) dark circles, puffiness and fine lines are magically reduced, revealing Super Bright Eyes.

My Opinion: This product I liked but didn't love if I'm honest, whilst I did find my eye area felt hydrated looked brighter and tighter , it didn't completely banish my dark circles which is a lot to expect from a product you could say . It is a great quick fix although it is a little pricey so I don't think I would repurchase that for now.   Rating: 3/5

THIRSTYMUD Hydrating Treatment (£50.00, 50g) harnesses the newest, most advanced active technologies to promote extreme hydration for instant and cumulative results. Dewdration™, HydraPack™, GreenEnergy™ and TEAOXI® deliver a ‘Thirst-Quenching Hit’ to defeat de-hydrated skin restoring moisture leaving Heart Pounding Glowing Skin.

My Opinion: This product is going to be a must have this winter, although for now I find it a little too rich as I do have combo skin I did find using is it once a week only has worked perfectly and made my skin feel and look brighter and glowing. This product smells divine and feels luxurious on the skin , it  sinks in to your skin pretty fast and left overnight you will wake up with super soft and brighter skin. I would recommend this to anyone with dry skin for sure but even if your like me and don't suffer from dry patches use this as a treatment once in a while and you will notice visible results for sure. Rating 4/5
