New Year, New Me…. Or not!

Merry Christmas and a happy new year to all my lovely readers 🙂 I hope your holidays were filled with fun, friends and family as mine were!

But now all the celebrating is almost completely finished everyone is thinking about the year ahead and what it is likely to hold for them. I on the other hand am not thinking quite the same. Don’t get me wrong, I totally understand why people choose January to make commitments and massive life changes, however for me it just doesn’t work. I’m a great believer in starting as you mean to go on, but promising that I won’t eat any unprocessed foods, will go to the gym every day, lose a stone in weight, travel more and take a makeup course realistically just isn’t going to happen, and besides I don’t want to be a new me! I quite like the me I am at the moment. So what do I hope 2016 will hold for me?

The list above are all things I would love to be able to achieve, but more than anything I want to see my career and my blog go from strength to strength this year, so I’m hoping for more successful collaborations, new followers and for continuing to love what I do both in and out of work.

Obviously taking a make up course, seeing more of the world and losing a bit of weight and toning up are also on my list, but I’m not going to commit to anything major now as who knows what next year will hold. Just looking back at last year I was making really good progress with my weight loss and fitness and then I fractured my foot which significantly set me back so I’m not going to make a statement which ultimately I cant achieve.

Instead of looking for all the things I want to change though, I am just going to be thankful for all I have achieved in 2015 (gaining readers on my blog, my first brand collaborations etc) as well as all I have including my amazing friends, family and good times and memories I made and wish that I can have all of this again in 2016.

Regardless of the fact I’m not setting resolutions, I hope whatever your goals are for 2016 you achieve them all and more! Don’t forget to share them in the comments below so we can work together to keep you on track to achieving them 🙂

Lots of love, Leanne xx


Festive break

Hi all, 

So sorry for the lack of content recently! I’m taking a bit of a festive break as I’ve been so busy recently that I’ve only just started (and finished) my xmas shopping today so writing has been not on my radar!

In the new year though I’ll make sure you have loads of fab content!

Hope you all have very happy holidays! Lots of love, Leanne xx

No Shit November – Wrap Up

No Shit November Wrap Up

Hey everyone,

I’m so sorry that I haven’t posted in a while! I have been so busy with gymnastics and just exhausted from general life that I haven’t had the brain capacity to write anything good!

But I am back now and thought I would wrap up No Shit November for you 🙂

So despite it not going quite to plan, I currently weight 9stone 12lbs and have a 27 inch waist. I’m pretty in proportion elsewhere with measurements currently being 36 – 27 – 35 however I would like to get all of those down if possible.

Onwards and upwards for me now though! I have just started at a new gym and completed my very first Body Combat class today and wow I can feel the ache already. As well as that I’ve also started horse riding which is amazing exercise and am planning with my brother to start a food diary too so hopefully it wont be long before I see those numbers going down 🙂


I’ll keep you all posted on the remainder of my journey and wish you all the best in your journey!

Also, I have created a blog snapchat now so you can add me there at Lifestyle4less as well as following me on Twitter and Instagram 🙂

Lots of love, Leanne xx
