Beauty Bootcamp

Christmas is over and January is upon us. The shortest day has been and gone and it is onwards and upwards to the summer, and this year I have got my sights firmly set on getting a beach body! With absolutely no money left to my name, my gym membership is my only source of entertainment till February, so what better time to start my crusade to banish all of those wobbly bits?! Armed with good intentions and my LF buddy, I headed to the gym for the first time in a long time. My nerves are irrational, after all I’m doing this to better myself aren’t I? But this time around I am not alone and having a gym buddy has made the whole experience a lot less painful (not literally though!) and dare I say it, actually quite enjoyable.

I never thought I would see the day where I would be lifting weights – but I did. We put ourselves through 45 minutes of various toning exercises designed to work every muscle group. I left the gym feeling revitalised, refreshed, a little achy, but my motivation of obtaining A-list standard beach beauty was still firmly imprinted in my mind.

So my advice for all those gunning for the perfect beach bod; grab yourself a gym buddy, go through the pain together, and why not give yourself a helping hand with this Maxitone protein shake. It comes with the promise to help you to ‘retain a toned and shapely’ figure – so come July you’ll be chilling out on the beach in a cut-out one piece looking nothing less than FIERCE.

Make Up Specialist

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
