Challenge 1: Get active with me & Beyoncé

Hey girlos 

So on sunday night after my cheat meal (chicken fried rice- yummy) I decided that I was going to go to the gym everyday this week at 6am. Yesterday was the first day and guess what? I failed miserably. Getting up at that time especially after only getting 3 hours sleep is just not for me. Although I felt painfully sorry for my roommate Amy who's studying nursing and has to get up at 6am every morning for placement. Her life sucks, she knows.
Anyway I was so close to giving up and not going to th gym yesterday at all but with some encouragement from my uni friend, I forced myself to go. Guys, I felt so good afterwards and was so happy that I pushed myself. I don't know what it is about working out but it puts me in a really good mood and is the biggest stress reliever (desperately needed). It's exam season in UCD right now so the pressure is on.

Moving on, I want you to complete this challenge with me and of course Beyoncé. If you haven't noticed, Bey has gotten so much slimmer in the past few months due to her being on tour again. She practices for at least 3 hours a day so if she can do that, you can live with 30 minutes of exercise.

Starting from today until next tuesday, I want you to do 30 minutes of exercise either outside, in a gym or even in your room. 30 minutes out of your day is nothing. I know you have internet access so don't even give me any excuses. Switch on your favourite playlist and dance around your room or look up fun workout videos on youtube! I have suggested a few for you guys down below. It's from Scola Dondo's YouTube channel and might I add she is amazing so make sure to check out her content. I have done all of the workouts listed below and I think you'll love it as much as I did. Although this is a lifestyle change for me, summer is quickly approaching and I want to hit some new targets before then and I thought wouldn't it be fun if you did it with me? Moral support hehe.

 have you got the drive?

Love from your girl

Happy Easter: A burst of inspiration

Hey beauties,

So the good weather is gone but my positive happy mood remains. Wow, I am so happy that you guys love these outfits that I put together on the spur of the moment. When I find something new or something I haven't worn yet, I get the urge to get all dressed up and take pictures until the sun literally goes away...literally. Now some of the small minded people in the world might think I'm conceited or superficial. I'm not going to lie, I am superficial- I like clothes and pretty things but doesn't every girl?

Sometimes you gotta let yourself believe you're Beyoncé for a day before that dreaded feeling of "small town girl living in a lonely world" comes back and forces you to question your entire existence. 

Anyway I am absolutely delighted with all of the wonderful comments I've been getting on instagram, twitter & Facebook. You guys are really the reason why I get up and make that horrible decision between studying for my exams and filming for my blog. I pick you, every time and I'm just an excited little pumpkin to see that my sacrifices are paying off. God, I hope my mother isn't reading this right now- that simply would not end well but I regret nothing.

Happy Easter to you and I sincerely love each and every one of you that take some time out of your day to check my blog, you are fab.

Must Read: What every girl needs in her wardrobe this Summer 14'

Hey girlos,
Wow 3 posts in one night? I must be really trying to make it up to you guys for not blogging in a week! *wink*
Summer is closely approaching and I’m here to help you guys pick out your summer items by providing you with a list of some pieces of clothing that are a must have in your closet for Summer 2014.
In order to reduce spending for the next summer, I think every girl should own some of the fashion staples below so we can wear it over and over again, whilst still easily mixing it with other trends. Now I’m not a t-shirt and shorts kind of girl, that stuff is far too blasé. I’m more of a caramel macchiato, champagne over cheap Aldi Wine kind of girl; meaning I don’t just dress for comfort and to avoid expenses, I dress to impress & I want to help those of you who would like to do the same but just don’t know how to go about it.
There are 3 things you’ll need for before and after reading this blogpost: pen and paper, a tab opened on your laptop to look for these fashion pieces and of course, your bank details. Don’t be afraid to splurge when you know these pieces will be vintage, in a modern kind of sense!
