Movers & Shapers : Session 6

After the last session I could tell how much my body had strengthened up, my muscles didn’t feel dull, tired or achy the next day.  I’ve also noticed that my common back complaints (I tend to get aches in my left shoulder and back) had completely gone away, I believe because of the improved strength in muscles not targeted through my other activities. Today’s session …

Movers & Shapers : Session 5

Determined not to let the last bad session perturb me I booked in to my regular 9am slot for today, only two days since the aforementioned evening slot.  I was with Maddy again this time, whose previous session was really enjoyable, this time I had a really great all round workout! By now my body is getting used to the sessions and I can complete …

Raw Beauty – Moroccan Spa, Greenwich

I am a massive fan of argan oil.  It is a wonderfully versatile oil and can be used all over on hair, body and face.  Whilst out and about for the day in Greenwich, I got talking to Sadie Houston, who has a stall in Greenwich selling argan oil amongst other things. I mentioned that I was launching Biteable Beauty very soon and before I …

Movers & Shapers : Session 4

Due to an unexpected bit of work coming up, I had to move this session from the planned morning slot to the evening. Wow this was a mistake for me. I was tired before I arrived, having run a couple of sewing workshops in a school.  My mental tiredness meant I could not put my all in to the session as I had been doing …

Movers & Shapers : Session 3

To say my legs were fatigued the day after my last session would be a massive understatement. I was walking like John Wayne for the next couple of days and every little step was accompanied by that “ooh, ow, I worked hard yesterday” satisfying pain. Yes, I openly admit I am a bit of a sadist. Feeling the benefits of these sessions already – I’m …

Movers & Shapers : Session 2

So, despite not feeling the first session at the time, the next day my body felt as though I had worked out hard, excellent, and all in half an hour. As M&S say in their advertising, “who has time to go to the gym any more?” I certainly don’t at the moment and I really miss the exertion! When I arrived for my second session, …

FakeBake Lipo Bronze

For my Anti-Cellulite article in Simply Beautiful, I called in some products to trial and review. They didn’t arrive quite in time for me to give any of them a chance, so I wrote a small entry for each product in the feature and directed readers to here. Here is my short entry for the first product I am going to trial long term – FakeBake …

Movers & Shapers : Session 1

I’m always up for trying new things, and so whilst researching cellulite combat I discovered that the power plate chain Movers & Shapers claimed to “combat cellulite” whilst also improving muscle tone, strength, accelerating weight loss and improving overall health and well being. And all in two thirty minute sessions a week. It’s a no-brainer really isn’t it? So I called them up and booked …

Booty Camp : The Supplements

I did a little reading up, I asked for some expert advice from Solgar and it appeared that I should be taking the following vitamins in my quest for perfection. Please be vigilant when experimenting with supplements as every body is different and can react in different ways to supplements. I read about a lady who started bruising when taking a combination of horse chestnut …

Booty Camp : The Challenge

I am a regular contributor to the great new(ish) magazine, Simply Beautiful. My first article was all about creating a spa experience at home for Mother’s Day with Evolve Beauty and homemade products (you can read it here).  When I was assigned my next article, I didn’t feel quite so comfortable but decided to throw myself in to the subject of….. cellulite and check myself …
