The Best Places To Shop For Gym Wear

We don't all want the same thing when it comes to gym wear. Some of us prefer things so high waisted there's only 2cm of skin on show between your leggings and your bra, whereas some prefer a traditional low rise (who are you?! How do you cope without your bum crack coming out after every burpee - please enlighten me?!). Let me outline my gym wear preferences with you, and if you have the same preferences, then you'll probably agree that these are some of the best places to shop for your gym wear.

When shopping for my leggings, I prefer a super high waisted fit with a chunky waistband that will hold my pooch in and keep the leggings up (there's nothing worse than constantly pulling up your leggings during a workout). They are pretty much my only necessities when it comes to the bottom half - oh, and of course that they are squat proof, but who doesn't have that as a requirement?! I'm pretty easy going when it comes to sports bras but they must have padding. So, if you're a high waisted gym leggings girl who's not too fussy when it comes to the top half, then this post is for you...

Huda Beauty Sapphire Obsessions Palette Review

Ironically, this palette is called Sapphire Obsessions and let me tell you, I am obsessed.

Huda Beauty has been knocking around since 2013 and this is the first product I've picked up from her line. I'm always seeing her palettes on Instagram being used by some of my favourite influencers, but with the bigger ones priced around the £50 mark, I thought that trying out a smaller and more affordable one first would be best.


The Sapphire Obsessions palette consists of just 9 shades, 5 duo-chrome shimmers and 4 creamy matte shadows. I was a little shocked when this palette arrived and I saw just how small it is, especially considering its RRP is £25. It's very small, just a little larger than the size of my palm. If you wanted a bigger palette with good quality shadows, I would recommend opting for a Morphe palette rather than one of these. Saying that, the shadows in this are definitely of a high quality, and the price of course reflects this. The palette also has a good sized mirror in the top, making it perfect for on the go and travelling.

Top 3 Brunch Spots in Barcelona


So you're looking for some delicious food spots to hit up when you go to Barcelona? Well when I say Barcelona has some incredible food, I mean it. Supposedly Barcelona is not as a "brunch" place, but I beg to differ, as we found so many places serving incredible brunch dishes. Here are my top three brunch recommendations that you must visit.

Laser hair removal: Is it worth it?

If you were to ask me the best beauty treatments I've ever had done and what I'd recommend, laser hair removal would be my number one answer.

Laser hair removal is something that I've wanted since I was, no joke, about 11 years old. I've always been super hairy, down to my brown people genes, and it's been something I've been super self conscious about after having people comment on my hairy arms and tash.

So many of you have popped me DM's on Instagram when I have posted stories about going to my laser sessions, asking me questions about my experience, so I thought I'd pop all the FAQ's in one place

#ad A Budget Stay in Kensington | Point A Hotels

A budget stay in Kensington?! I know, I hear you, I didn't think such a thing existed either, but Point A Hotels have well and truly proved me wrong.

Last weekend, they kindly gifted me a stay at their Kensington hotel and I was honestly so impressed. I am not a hotel snob, normally me and Andy stay at a Travelodge or a Premier Inn, so trying out another budget hotel chain was right up my street. 



We book hotels in London probably four times a year, not living together has many disadvantages so it is nice to actually get to spend some quality time together once in a while. London is always a good middle ground for both of us, with Andy living in Essex and me living in Surrey, but both of us commuting into London for work.
