I always make sure to take good care of my skin. I have a combination of oily and dry skin so I am always trying to balance them out. I've always thought it is important to look after your skin and I am always trying new routines and products to see what works best for me.

Fitness Terminology you May not Know the Meaning Of

When I started exercising and learning more about different techniques, equipment, processes etc. I came across a lot of terms that I had either never heard before or had heard, but didn’t know what they meant.

I thought it might be a good idea to create a small glossary of some of the most popular terms that people may not know the definition of. 
I hope it helps those who want to expand their knowledge a little bit!

What does Shampoo Really do to our Hair?

There is no correct way to wash your hair, everyone’s hair is different. Meaning some hair may need a bit more tender love and care. I.e. more frequent washing.

However, it is known that in general the less you wash your hair the more beneficial it is. My hairdresser used to always tell me to wash my hair less, but I thought the more I washed it, the less oily it would get. Instead, it does the opposite.

The Cardio You Didn't Know You Were Doing

I have always associated cardio with running. I always forget that there is so much more to cardio than just running. There are a lot of cardio activities that are things I don’t even consider as exercise!

How to Have the Best Sleep of Your Life

Best Sleep Of Your LifeI have always been one of those people who has had trouble sleeping. I wish that as soon as I lay my head on my pillow I would magically fall asleep, but instead, I lay awake knowing I really need to get some shut eye, but for some reason just can’t get my mind to switch off. To make things worse, once I do get to sleep, I tend to wake up numerous times during the night and have to go through the whole process of falling asleep again. 

Berry Green Smoothie

Berry Smoothie
I love smoothies, especially for breakfast. I don’t like a heavy breakfast, so I find that smoothies are a great choice and they keep me full until lunchtime.

One of my favourite smoothies is a mixed berry smoothie! This one I make all the time and I am always having to buy more berries and yogurt because I run out so quickly!

What Every Girl Needs in her Gym Bag

To Pack In Your Gym Bag
When I first started the gym, I didn't have a designated gym bag. Every time I got ready to head to the gym, I would just throw whatever I thought I needed into the closest bag. One day I was running on the treadmill and my hair tie broke. Of course, I didn't pack a spare one and had to cut my workout short or suffer from sweaty hair on the back of my neck. From that day I decided I needed to pack a proper gym bag. 

Here is what I think every girl must have in her gym bag.
