Lost Without You

Living room workouts, lipstick, a 40 calorie treat and a teeth whitener are all things that I am loving lately.

Insanity

I am a regular gym goer and I have recently incorporated Insanity in to my weekly workout routine. I do insanity in my living room which means that my boyfriend often comes home to find my jumping around like a “wild animal”.

True to it’s name, insanity is insane and it is a form of high intensity interval training. When I do insanity my heart rate can reach up to 211 beats per a minute (I wear a polar watch) and this is the kind of heart rate I would expect to see during hill sprints. Not bad for a home workout!

I love insanity because it involves a lot of plyometric and body weight exercises, which are great for burning fat and increasing strength. You can do Insanity right in the comfort of your home, which is perfect for those of you without gym memberships.

After finishing insanity, you should like you have spent the day standing underneath the Niagara Falls.

MAC Lipsticks

IMG_1201.JPGAlong with the rest of the world, I have been hypnotized by Kylie Jenner’s voluptuous lips and I have a new found love for lipsticks. Like Kylie, I too have fuller lips but my darker skin means that the colours which look natural on her, are comical on me.

Mac cater for all skin colours and within minutes of visiting their Harrods counter, I discovered a wonderful shade of brown that gave me the natural look that I had longed for. The lipstick I chose is called Tabala and it is perfect for the days when I want to look so effortless flawless, that my face sings “I woke up like this”.

Low Calorie Hot Chocolate

I am not a big chocolate eater but with the weather gradually taking a turn for the worse, sometimes all I want is a hot chocolate to keep me warm at night. A medium sized Signature hot chocolate from Starbucks contains over 400 calories. Thankfully, Lydia Elise Millen introduced low calorie hot chocolate to me, and I can now satisfy my cravings without consuming the same amount of calories as a doughnut.

Skip the fancy coffee shop hot chocolates and stock up on your own low calorie supply, straight from the supermarket. Options hot chocolate give you twelve different flavours to choose from. With only 40 calories per a mug, what is there to be guilty about?

Crest White Strips

I am a regular coffee drinker and unfortunately the sacrifice I have to make in order to survive on six hours sleep, is the colour of my teeth….or so I thought.

A couple of months ago I met up with my Glamazon’s and I noticed that one of them had suspiciously white teeth. I demanded to know her secret and she told me about Crest Strips. I ordered ten pouches from their Luxe Professional range off Ebay, and wore them for thirty minutes a day. Thanks to Crest White Strips my teeth are well on their way to being as white as Simon Cowell’s.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was
    hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like
    this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading
    your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
