Hello Everyone!

I know I've been MIA for over a month now and I am very sorry about that but I going to be explaining what's been going on to make me not blog. 

The reason I haven't been posting on here since mid-January is because I broke up with my boyfriend. 

I've wanted to write about this for a while but couldn't really bring myself to it as it had been quite a sensitive subject until now. I suppose initially I didn't really want it broadcast everywhere for everyone to see. This is not going to be one of those 'I hate my ex' posts, it's one of those this is what happened and I'm okay with my life now.

We had been together for two years and for the most part it was good, but the last few months really weren't that fantastic. We were constantly arguing and it didn't seem like he really wanted 'us' anymore. There's only so much that one person can do when they realise that the person they love the most just doesn't love them back. When I finally realised this I had to confront him about it all and unfortunately, nothing he said to me made me want to stay with him.

It's been quite an emotional rollercoaster for me, as I've never really had to break up with someone. Usually it's the other way round and this was such a terrible feeling for me to have. I'd be feeling guilty one moment and happy the next, it was so surreal for me not to know what was going on in my head. After a couple of weeks I started to feel better but then whilst out with my girlfriends *bam* news hits.

I get shown my friends Facebook feed... 'Blah Blah is in a relationship with Blah Blah.'

That killed me. Someone I had loved with all my heart is now with someone else.

As much as my friends wanted to go mad at him I didn't let them. 
I suppose once you realise that the other person just didn't love you then it's time to drop everything, move on and get yourself into a much  happier place.

I am now purely focusing on my happiness. I shouldn't need to depend on another human to make me happy. I'm looking after my body a hell of a lot more and ensuring that I can be the best person I can. I have my goals and know what I want in life and you can be sure that I'm going to achieve everything that I've set myself! I'm only just realising how much someone can hold you back from your goals and aspirations, I'm never going to let that happen to me again.

It's all about me now.



Apologies for the tone of this post, but I felt I needed to give you guys some sort of explanation as to why I hadn't been writing as much.
Rest assured, I'm back!

Gym Wear Wishlist

Hello Everyone!

I'm sorry it's been a while since I've last posted. I've been rather distracted over the past month with personal issues which I won't be going into on my blog and I hope you guys understand that.

I've started really looking after my body since after Christmas, I have cut dairy completely out of my diet due to a possible lactose intolerance. It makes me sad that I can't stuff my face with pizza and Ben and Jerry's ice cream but I am feeling the benefits of this diet change. My skin is so much clearer and I hardly feel bloated anymore.
I've also started up Zumba classes again after a few years off. I really enjoy the classes as I push myself to work my butt off and I have fun doing it! I've now got my standing bike in my room which I use daily on top of my core workouts that I now do. 

Now that I'm properly looking after myself I figured that in the next few weeks I'll be treating myself to some new gym wear! The thought of new gym leggings gets me so excited, sad I know! 
So I've compiled a wishlist of gym-wear that I'm hoping to purchase by the end of February.

First up it's the Missguided Active wear range. This has recently been released and oh my God I want it all.

Next it's New Look's Gym Wear.

If you can't tell, I've kind of got a thing for brightly coloured gym wear at the moment. I usually wear all black when I work out. I guess it's because I don't like to stand out, but hopefully if I carry on with what I'm doing I'll feel confident enough to stand out in these pieces.

Vinted: Love preloved clothing

Hello Everyone!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

Today I want to talk about a website called Vinted. Many of you might not have heard about it but it's an amazing website for clothing. I am a self diagnosed shopaholic, I just love buying new clothes all the time. The only problem with this, is one little word: MONEY. Money is quite tight for me at the moment, some of you may have read that I currently work as an apprentice, which doesn't come with a great salary. So, for me, having little money and wanting so many beautiful clothes is slightly getting to me. That was until I found Vinted.

Vinted is a site similar to Depop. It's where girls can sell their unwanted/unworn clothes and others can buy them at an amazing price. Since starting my new job I haven't walked into Topshop, River Island or Zara purely because I couldn't afford them, but because of Vinted I can afford items from all of these brands and more.  I've even stumbled upon Kurt Geiger shoes on here selling for £30 and with the tiniest bit of wear on them. I've managed to get rid of unwanted clothes from my wardrobe that I haven't worn in years and at the same time I've been able to update my wardrobe. I will be doing a seperate post on the bargains that I've managed to obtain, but that will be in the New Year as I'm actually waiting for a couple of items to come in the post! Eee it's exciting.

When you first sign up to Vinted, you can chose to sign up with either an e-mail or facebook. I used facebook as you can share your 'items for sale' with a click of a button. It's free to sign up and you only have to pay a small amount after you've made a sale. 
This is what the homepage looks like, you get a 'news feed' of items that have recently been uploaded onto the site, as you can see there's an item from Topshop, Boohoo and Miss Selfridge on there.

I thought I'd share with you my 'favourites' list. This is a list of items that I've 'liked. I normally create a favourites list of around 20 items, this month I've gone a bit mad and liked 33 but nevermind! I always have every intention of buying an item once I've favourited it. I think it's nice to have a list of items there in front of me as I can create outfits and work out what I'd wear with certain items.

So, here are a few of my current favourites.

I am in love with all of these items. This gives you an idea of what great bargains you can find on this site and how this really is an affordable way of updating your wardrobe. Most items on here have either been worn once or still have the tags on. 
Here are the links to all the items I have above
Motel Rocks Sequin Dress
Forever 21 Cami Top
New Look Statement Necklace
New Look Skinny Jeans
Missguided Faux Fur Coat
ASOS Skater Dress
Missguided Halter Neck Jumpsuit
River Island White Shift Dress

I am in love with the Motel Rocks green sequin dress on the top left. It's a beautiful colour and an absolute steal at £25.00 considering it is still selling at £58.00 on the Motel Rocks website. 
I love the pink cami top too, I'd pair this one with the New Look skinny jeans and some nice nude heels for when I go out for a couple of drinks. Plus, these two items together come under £20. 

If you're on a tight budget or want to make room in your wardrobe then Vinted is definitely the website to go to. I was a bit sceptical about it at first but after making 18 sales and buying 21 items I really do trust this site. If theres ever a problem with a sale, whether you're the buyer or seller, the vinted team are always there to help you out to resolve any issue you may have.

You can also download the app for this website. Simply search for Vinted on your app store.

Happy Bargain hunting!
