As cliche as this may seem,many of us use A new year  as a time to change.New year,new start and all is a great time to achieve something you've always desired.

Getting healthier is often at the top of many lists,so I wanted to help some of you including myself, get the year of to a good start.

I'm going to do a sequel of posts #YOU starting with workout essentials.

                   So let's get moving 

1.Loose fitted top

When working out its important to feel comfortable, as you don't want to be worrying about what you look like.Many stores are branching out to fitness wear this year including misguided.com.

2.Sports bra 

If your planning on doing cardio then a supportive sports bra is a must.As you'll be supported and able to move more.

3.Sweat top

When you start excercising it's always good to wear some sort of jacket and as you warm up you can take it off.Any comfy sweater is good,however I like to wear my American Eagle hoodie, as it has extra comfort.

4. Supportive trainers 

One of  the most important workout items.Make sure the trainer fits well and if your chosen sport is running check out a sport shop where they can assist you with your purchase.I have Nike free runs and they are so comfy like walking on clouds.

5.Sweat pants 

I personally prefer long or cropped sweatpants rather than shorts whilst working out, and Matalan have a stylish new range starting from £8.


I'm one of those people who get bored every 10 minutes.Having a distraction is important to me.I'll put on my spotfiy playlist and choose something upbeat,which will give me motivation to move faster. 


Keeping hydrated whilst exercising is extremely important,I try to always keep a bottle of water in my bag and there are some great reusable bottles available.

What's your fitness essential ?

- No one can give you wiser advice than yourself -

We all go through a stage in our lives,when we question all that we do.

You feel trapped and confused in your own body.

Are you actually confused?... Probably not!

Our brains muddle up the feeling of confusion with over thinking.This creates the illusion of clarity.

We are more concerned  on the future rather than the present !

                                           Start living in the moment 

I believe that everything happens for a reason,we all need to 'Do more of what makes us happy'!

Life is what you make it,whatever your feeling now it's just an illusion or the result of clarity.
Try to 'shake it off' and realise how lucky you are to be alive.

Believe that something wonderful is going to happen and every day will be amazing 

Think are you confused or just over thinking ?

Origins face mask trio

I received this origins set for my birthday in November and I'd researched the products before hand  and had heard only good about them.

The set was originally £50 but boots had a deal for £28.The kit includes 3x75ml masks which was a super must have for me.

As we go into winter most peoples skin tends to get drier due to being exposed to sunlight.Then it get thrown in at the deep end, is exposed to the nasty cold winter weather and it  can't cope.

Out of trouble - 10 minute mask to rescue problem skin

Calms skin down and reduces redness and inflammation.Its minty and slightly tingly which is relaxing.After washing off my face feels soft and my spots not as appear able.

Drink up intensive - Over night mask to quench skins thirst 

 Massage onto clean skin at bedtime.I love the smell of this mask it's so fresh and fruity and it reminds me of something but I'm not sure what!
This works wonders you'll go to bed with dehydrated dry skin and wake up with hydrated glowing skin.

Clear improvement - Active charcoal mask to clear pores

A great weekly face mask to freshen up and revatalize you skin and soak up shininess 

Have you tried any Origins products ?
