My Current Playlist

I don't think I would workout without m headphones in and a really good playlist to get me moving, so I love seeing what other people list to at the gym because everyone has such varied tastes and different music that gets them motivated. Quite often when I am in the gym and people have their big headphone in I do wonder what they have on, is anyone else like that?

My playlist does not vary that much and have only recently changed it up so thats why I thought I would share it with you guys. I generally will go for the latest songs that really get my motivated that are out on the radio at the moment. I find it hard to get motivated from old songs I'm not sure why but they don't energise me the way new songs do. 

Do you have any playlists that you listen to in the gym, and what are your favourite songs that get you motivated? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

Feb Round Up / March Goals

I am not sure how it has gotten to March already but here we are, February has gone so quickly I barley know where it went. Which is why this month I do want to push myself a bit further to achieve a few more things.

So February for me felt like a bit of a wash out, even though it wasn't so much. Its funny how your feelings can be slightly different to reality but thats the beauty of it. So the goals I set for myself at the start of Feb were to to have a certain amount of posts up and going to the gym a certain amount of times, and somewhere through the month I seemed to drift a little and didn't re-focus myself mid-month. 

I did achieve most of my goals which were mainly the gym based goals and taking some time to read two books in the month and managed to post on Instagram for 2 weeks in a row which for me is much better consistency.
I did just find out that I passed my first two exams for my level 2 qualification which is great and giving me great confidence to move forward. 
The ones that slipped for me were my blog posts goals, so I didn't get up as many posts as I had hoped for. I did get 5 up so that is not bad going for someone working full time, commuting London-Manchester and studying for PT qualification. 

The month of March....

As I said above I am going to try and push myself a little further this month, and try and get more of the consistency that I would like especially more so for you guys so you know more or less when posts are going to be going up and can keep track of what is going on. 

I am defiantly going to be continuing with my consistency with my social media, I found that is certainly down to bit more planning ahead and getting my posts ready at the weekend for the week ahead. Who know scheduling would be such a god send.

One note to myself though is to remember to do a check point mid-month to make sure I'm on track and keeping that motivation going. Its hard when your pushing on with your own goals but no one said success is going to be easy.

I would love to hear your thoughts feedback or any question you have in comments below, or get in touch via social media - links are below.

Hope you all have a great weekend...

Career Change..?

If you have read my Goals for 2017 (Here) you will know that one of my goals for this year was to train and become a qualified Personal Trainer. So this is why I am now writing this post about a month and a half since I made that goal because it is finally coming true. 

I have been into fitness for nearly all of my life when I joined the Gymnastics Squad at the ago of 7 at school. I was one of those students who naturally excelled in sports than academic studies so through out school I never got the greatest marks but I would happily spent 18 hours a week training. 

I have been working in the IT sector for about 5 years now, and I have been very grateful for every opportunity that I have had and the experiences that I have been a part of, but fast approaching the age of 30 some times I still question myself of what I want to do for the rest of my life... Is anyone else the same? 

Having a natural love for exercise and sport I still go to the gym and always find my self encouraging my friends to be healthy, and after a heavy gym session and I am knocked I get such a happy feeling that I have really done something. So that is partly what has pushed me into doing the course and pursuing this dream further and see where things turn out. 

I would in the future love to own my own gym and clothing line to really help people change their lives and see what satisfaction you can get from being fit and healthy and to show people that its all boring and you can still have your chocolate and sweets (maybe just not as much). 

I have now started my Level 2 which builds onto Level 3 after where I will then be a qualified Personal Trainer. I am so excited to start this journey to see where it takes me and hopefully will be able to inspire and help a lot of people to make some great changes in their life. 

If you have any questions please do feel free to get in touch.

REVIEW: MAC Strobe Cream

MAC Strobe Cream

I was never too sure about Strobe creams as I had tried using them before and could never really see what they did, which could have possibly been down to me not really knowing how to apply them properly. 
I did get the strobe cream for christmas and I have tried to spend my time using this product to do a review just so I knew I had got the best out of the product. 

The MAC Strobe Cream range comes in 5 ranging colours - Silverlight, Peachlite, Pinklite, Redlite and Goldlite. When you are on the website it doesn't differentiate between the colours so I think they are something you will have to try in store to see what fits your skin tone the best and your desired look. 

I did try them out on my hand in store and I did want about 3 of them but I could defiantly make the differentiation to the ones which I didn't want and didn't match my skin tone. This I felt was good because it meant that I didn't want to buy the whole lot and they were tailored to different skin type and tones. 

MAC Strobe Cream

I don't use mine every day as I work in an office so isn't the most suitable place to be having a fabulous glow with a touch of highlight but I do wear this one my days off and I will even even wear this when I am wearing no makeup. I will apply my moisturiser as normal and then put a small amount on the tips of my fingers and spread evenly over my face. I feel like this really does give your skin a natural glow and brighten it up a bit. 

When I am wearing makeup I will put my moisturiser on and as above I will spread the product all over my face but I will concentrate more on the high points of my face first so my cheek bones, eye areas, end of my nose and my cupids bow. 
I will then apply my foundation over the top and when I am finished with my foundation I will pop a small amount of the strobe cream on my beauty blender and go over these high points again. This i find works so well and makes any highlighter you put on top pop even more. 

Have you used any of the Strobe creams I would love to hear your views below.

OUTFIT: Purple Vibes

I can't say that I have ever really worn anything purple before which is why I chose this outfit. I wanted to branch out of my comfort zone and try something new, as I normally wear dark leggings and a vibrant top this was certainly something different. 

I bought this jacket and leggings in store and they don't seem to be online. 

These leggings are very comfortable though and did keep me nice and warm when I was shooting this look. I love the print on the leggings also as I only have one other pair of pattern leggings. I did get some new trainers which was nice they were my mums but she did not find them comfortable but I quite liked them so she gave them to me.
