Hair Transformation!

Hey everyone, I’m writing again and for more than once in a month! This really shouldn’t be something to celebrate, but you have to celebrate all the small successes right?!

I thought it was about time to share my hair journey. This year I feel like I’ve been all the colours imaginable! You can see them all on my Instagram! From black, to green to pink and eventhough some of them haven’t been exactly what I’ve anticipated, I’ve loved having them all. As well as colours, I’ve gone from the longest hair I’ve had in years to the big cut and I have to say the short hair is a firm fave of mine now 🙂

It’s fair to say the pics above the colours are all fairly light and I think this is my preference. I’ve had dark hair a few times and I’m not really sure if it suits me, plus I love the light hair and dark eyebrows combo too! However, I’m open minded and just want to try looks that are different, so now I’m trying to decide what the next step is in my hair journey.

And these are the most recent hair colours! I’m loving the current grey/white/blue vibes 🙂 I’ve wanted this colour for ages, especially after getting into iZombie and the hair colour in that series. I cannot do a blog post though without shouting out the best hairdresser I’ve ever had. I’m lucky enough to call Louisa one of my best friends too and hopefully she enjoys messing around with my hair as much as I enjoy being guinea pig 🙂 Make sure you go and follow her as well – her pics are so beautiful and I want everything she posts!

But what next? I was thinking yellow, orange kinda takes my fancy and blue does too! Or should I go darker for winter? Or get extensions?

Help me decide! Comment below what you think would look good and be fun to try – I’m open to most things (as you can tell) and would love to get your input 🙂

Lots of love, Leanne xx

Workout Wear

So as well as not finding the time to write blog posts for you all, I also haven’t been finding the time to eat right or exercise and it’s left me feeling really self conscious and uncomfortable. I’m not afraid to share that I currently weigh more than I would like and have lost all tone due to not working out, but it’s not going to put me off. Sometimes when you feel this way it’s easy to get into a bad cycle of not wanting to do anything about it, but I am going to go the other way. It’s spurred me on to nip it in the bud and change my routines to make sure I’m making time for my health and happiness. And after signing up to charity row for Cancer Research next May, I’m going to need to be the fittest I’ve ever been! No time like the present after all…

One way that I motivate myself to go to the gym is to pick a super cute workout outfit. I’m a big fan of patterned leggings as they add some fun to what could otherwise be a very functional outfit. And I think they are flattering for all body types too! I have pretty muscly legs from years and years of gymnastics and yet I love the way they show off the good bits and hide the bad all whilst showing off my personality 🙂

I would always say that if you are going tight with the bottoms though,  that a loose top works best (which is also great for covering my tummy which I’m not such a big fan of) so I usually pick either a plain black tee of if I’m wearing plainer bottoms, then a nice bright colour again to match my personality and motivate me to train harder (although some days I do love a good monochrome outfit like the one below, which looks good to be dressed up if you have to pop into town first!)

Take a look at some of the outfits I love best that I already own, as well as some inspiration  and soon to be additions to my wardrobe from Adore Me’s new workout range! Adore Me’s new workout range! I mean how cute is the promo shot!!!

And when I get home from a workout, there is nothing I love better than a snuggly autumn outfit! Autumnal clothes can be oversized and sometimes shapeless, but that is no need to feel frumpy. A cute choker necklace, statement shoes and a bold lip always help bring a femininity back to an oversize outfit and cute undies also help to help put a feminine spring back in your step!

Stay tuned to find out how I style myself when I want to be comfy and cute in Autumn very soon!

Lots of love, Leanne xxx
