*We all want a bikini body, but still want to eat cake*

You've probably assumed from the title, that this post is going to be somewhat different to the usual mumble jumble & pretty pictures you see on this little space on the internet. And yes, you assumed right. 

Let me start by asking, 'Is anyone else panicking about the little pouch of cake they still have on their stomach, despite summer being just around the corner?' Well, I certainly am. Now, don't get me wrong here and think I'm of those people that obsesses about being 'skinny' (I refuse to use that word again). Because honestly, I really do love cake. And biscuits. And sweets. And... you get the point. However, I will admit that I like to be as healthy as possible (nothing wrong with that, right?) and rather love the gym. Unfortunately I'm not blessed with the ability to go on the 'see food, and eat it diet' and still have an amazing bod, but I am certainly in the process of persevering with my 'fitness' in the hope of feeling confident in shorts this summer.

I'm not going to give you any crap rubbish here about diets or losing weight fast, because lets be honest, all you need to do is eat healthily, to be healthy. Besides, the cabbage diet sounds far too cake-less for me anyway. Oh, and I do treat myself, often. Far too often. But shh! ;)

Anyhow, seeing as this is a fashion blog, I suppose I should talk to you a little about clothes? Now, we all know that if we have an amazing outfit planned for the next day, there's a 99% chance we're a little more excited about getting out of bed in the morning. After noticing this, I tried to encourage it into my 'fitness wardrobe', or whatever you would like to call it. I bought some funky (but supportive) new trainers, comfortable sports bras, and found the prettiest vest tops & leggings that was humanely possible. None of us look our best at the gym. Sweat, no make up & tied up hair have unfortunately never been the most attractive combination. Considering that fact, we may as well make the most of what we wear. So girlies, in the hope of inspiring you to get your little booties to the gym (unless you already look like Beyonce) I've made a pretty little collage of all the pretty little things that could potentially make you look 'pretty' at the gym! HOORAH.  xxx


  1. This is bizarre but I have a plain navy version of that bag for the gym, that vest top and I was just about to order those trainers before I saw this post! How strange! Theres so much pretty sportswear out there at the moment, it makes the gym so much more of a tempting prospect!

  2. Love the H&M sports bra - if i was more of a fitness freak I would defiantly buy it. Glad you're finding a healthy way to get your summer body!


  3. I lost a lot of weight from an illness and i'm starting to properly gain weight again and look a bit healthier but i'm also gaining a little flab in the process so I think I should get back to the gym and tone up a little! Love a bit of cool gym wear x

  4. love a good versatile post! And you're right, it is motivating having nice gym clothes! xxx

  5. I thought I was the only blogger that was in love with jacks wills really want that bag , have you seen the jack wills outlet online its member exclusive but the jack wills stuff is so cheap as it is from last season

    Great post

  6. I've reccently started to eat healthier (with the odd bit of cake too..) and do more exercise and I feel so much happier! I always try and look nice as well, it makes me keep going knowing that I don't look as awful as I think I do haha xx

  7. I am going to have to immediately to my flatmates who always laugh at the "obscene" amount of money I spend on gym clothes when I could just go in leggings and a big t-shirt, but I 100% agree that if you have an outfit you want to wear going to the gym becomes a million times more appealing. Thanks for the post!


  8. I've tried to eat healthier and exercise ready for the summer too but its sooo hard I love crisps too much haha! Good luck with it :-) xxx
