21 day challenge!

Hiiiii! Hope you've all had a smashing weekend!

At 6am this morning my alarm clock went off, reminding me that last night I had decided to go running. I felt like I could get back into bed and sleep until the middle of next week yet nevertheless I went out anyway. A quick half an hour run around where I live and I came back feeling so refreshed and buzzed (although I didn't have that nice Keira Knightley style glow it was more of a puffed out bulldog look)

So whilst on my run, using it as a nice thinking time too, I have decided to go on the 21 day challenge. I have seen this being done before and I eat quite healthily anyway so I don't think it'll be too hard. 

The 21 day challenge is when you eat:

  • No fast food,
  • No crisps,
  • No chocolate,
  • No sweets
  • No biscuits or cookies
  • No cakes, doughnuts or muffins,
  • No pastries,
  • No added sugars,
  • No unhealthy fats.

Other aims of the 21 day challenge is to:

Up your sleeping quality and duration between 6-8. I always get at least 6, so hope to improve that to 7-8.

And to also work out 3-4 times a week.

Wish me luck!!

So last night me and my sister went to go see Mcfly in bournemouth which was ah-mazing! The last concert I went to was last July when I saw Blink 182 with two friends. This time, I wasn't too sure what to expect from it whether it would be how my eleven year old self would have imagined or filled with crazy fangirls. Needless to say my eleven year old self would have been delighted with myself, not only remembering all the words from their 2003 album but also..fangirling! If any of you haven't seen McFly live, I would 100% recommend it, they are great showmen and you'll have such a great night too!

The support act was also really good too. They were an up and coming band called The Vamps and I loved their song Cecilia too. They have just been signed to EMI records too so soon you'll be seeing and hearing them everywhere!

Although I am still feeling on a concert high, I always get this feeling after seeing a live act. Why don't I go and see bands, artists or comedians more often I ask myself? Feeling the thud of the bass beating through my chest, thrusting my hands in the air and singing along at the top of my voice not caring how bad I sound. It makes me want to see every artist or band I like. Then I get home and look at the prices online and remember why I stick to singing into my hairbrush with my iPod on full blast.. 

Love A. x

Nails of the day!

I tried to ombre my nails today (the important word here is tried) as you can see in the image below it didn't quite turn out how I wanted it too. I started with a white base and then use two  shades of blue BarryM nail varnish, one lighter and the other a little bit darker. I used an old make up sponge to create the ombre look and dabbed it across the lower half of my nail. To finish remove the excess nail varnish around the nail with some nail varnish remover and cover the nail with a top coat then you're good to go!

Hope you like them, A. xo

Outfit of the day..

hello all! I hope you're all enjoying the sun! I wore this on Monday I just forgot to blog about it. I got this dress last year at charity fashion show for £20 and I love it! I love the colours and the fact that its really different to what types of maxi dresses i've seen other people wear.  

Hope you like it too! A.x
