10.3.10

Competition + outfits!



Before I bombard you with images, Reebok have been in touch with a wonderful offer for you and I. They clearly caught wind of my recent calorie crimes and are coming to my rescue, giving me the chance to trial their new Easytone trainers (that claim to tone your bum and legs while you walk - perfect for exercise-phobes like myself!) They're also allowing me to offer one of you the chance to try the trainers with me! You'll receive a pair of Easytone trainers, a workout outfit and a gym bag! If it sounds good to you, just leave me a comment saying you want in!

So anyway, tonight I finally dealt with my escalating eyebrow situation. I always forget to do it until one day I realise how bad they've gotten and can't believe I didn't really notice before! I did have a clearer 'before' picture on my camera, but it was a bit too clear for my liking... I don't want to be responsible for any projectile vomiting. So thank god for the murky joys of Photobooth!



The reason I hardly ever pluck is because my pain threshold is non-existent! So I mainly used Veet wax strips this time. More satisfying & less time consuming! With plucking, I usually put all my effort into the first eyebrow and then rush through the second one because I get bored!

Earlier today, I went charity shop shopping and found a cute Daisy print vintage swimsuit for £1.50. I tried it on tonight and got so carried away with the vintage vibes, I rolled my fringe too! Excuse my boss-eyed expression. I'm not sure what went wrong there!





Here's a couple of outfits from the week so far. Picture one was when I was sports bra shopping (I swear just putting those damn things on is enough of a workout in itself!) Picture 2 was from a little trip to Bluewater. Not the best picture quality, I'm afraid!


(Jacket - Topshop, Cardi - Primark, Jeans - Topshop, Shoes - Charity Shopped // Faux fur - h&m, t-shirt dress - h&m, Brogues - charity shopped)

I hope you've had a lovely week so far!

xoxo

  5. Ohhh wowww I'd love a pair, sounds like a perfect way to tone up! I end up walking miles up and down hills in Sheffield but it doesn't seem to do justice to the wobbles! :) x

  7. That h6m fur looks pretty good.
    And I'd like to give it a try at the competition too!
    I used to be really active at training but those days are long gone now I'm afraid but maybe i could get a little bit better than I am now...

  8. I love the outfit with the vintage swimsuit, so cute if we ever get a Summer!

    Go on, enter me in the easy tone competition, maybe I'll suddenly get the urge to exercise?

  10. Haha, yeah count me in those trainers sound too good to be true! :D

    Yowzer on the vintage swim and shorts combo...you pull off things that completely terrify me, just the shorts bit terrifies me! *must tone legs*

    Funny you should mention the brows actually, I'm sort of addicted to brow plucking! I have to literally force myself to put the tweezers down. I totally overplucked when I was at school but I prefer them alot err..bushier now. Yours look so neat!

    And finally....you've made me want to roll my fringe but I fear I'll look like a poodle. I'm rubbish with hair, completely clueless (how I miss the dreadies..) My hair hasn't been cut since early 2008 apart from when I occasionaly hack at it with my eyes closed (no, really). I don't even own a hairbrush! Though the boyf apparently does, heh :o)

  11. Ooh, count me in please.

    The swimsuit looks fantastic on you! Ach, I wish I could get away with wearing things like that.

  16. Don't you just hate it when you write a comment and it gets deleted! urgh, never mind! anyway, as i was going to say: i know how you feel, i just look at my eyebrows for weeks and realise what a state they've got into, then think to myself how can i leave the house with these furry creatures on my face! love your swim suit, had one when i was a wee child, and you find such good bargains, at my local charity shop it's got so expensive, can't get a small polyester scarf for under 2 pound! can't complain, all goes to a good cause. and hell yes for the trainers! i hate exercise and being able to get fit without that much of it sounds like a perfect perfect solution! much love xxx Ella Rose

  22. Count me in! I've had my eyes on these trainers since they hit the market. I too am an excerise-phobe and feel these will reform me! Id love to try them out, so pick me! The summer is coming and I feel toning up and looking better would really help my confidence so here's hoping! xxx

  23. I would love to be in.

    I just ate an entire enchilada pack for four to myself, i told my mum she laughed then went on to work out how many calories i had consumed in one sit in. 1046.

    I'm now wallowing in self pity.

  24. Thanks for your entries and various funny/lovely comments! :)

    laurajanerock - Thank you so much :) And I'm glad I'm not alone in the bra-exhaustion situation!

    hello birdy - They probably will be too good to be true, I'll have to let you know! How can you be addicted to that pain?! You must have the strength of an ox! Hmm, not sure where that comparison came from! :)

    Ella Rose - Sod the good cause! I often haggle in charity shops! I know it's sick but I think they really do take the mickey sometimes!

    Natasha Scarlet - Haha, you sound just like me! I just ate 3/4's of a large Dominos pizza... Eff our lives!
