Fitness: Get Fit For Free

Getting that perfect body doesn't come easy and it doesn't help that gym membership fees seem to be extortionate these days. I am joined to David Lloyd leisure club and pay £73 a month which is ridiculous seeing as I barely ever actually go! So I thought I would do some digging and see what is out there in the industry of excercise and getting fit that you can actually do for free or for pretty much nothing and this is what I found...Well stumbled accross anyway!

{ Find a park with a Fit-for-free gym }

I couldn't believe my eyes when I returned from my holiday in Mykonos to find a FREE GYM in the park by my house. I was walking Princess (my beautiful miniature maltese) when I stumbled accross a gym..in the park. The most bizarre sight, not ugly in fact much of it is designed pink, blue and black and is modern and relatively attractive to the eye. Within the gated area there is a running machine that is powered by the movement of your feet and the momentum you create as you run; a pedal bike, a rowing machine, balancing equipment, weights and much much more. It is genuinley built like a gym, just one thing is missing - ELECTRICITY.

A clever interpretation of a gym, built and maintained by The Great Outdoor Gym Company. Great Outdoor Gyms cost nothing to run and very little to maintain and guess what, to become a member it is completely free, there is no contract tieing you down and you wont have your bank ringing you every month because you have gone into your 'unplanned overdraft'.

Beauty Budget Buy: Nars Light Optimising Gift Set

Good Morning Beauties!

I know I have already raved on at you about the NARS light optimizing primer, but I am going to again because during my much needed shopping spree in Selfridges last night I came accross the best deal..EVER. I cannot leave the house without applying my light optimizing primer and translucent powder from NARS and yesterday, whilst I only went in for a foundation pump, spotted the two items and a make up bag beautifully displayed on the counter. I was informed that for £30 you could have the light optimizing primer and the translucent pressed powder equipped with a dazzling red make up bag rather than £50 which the primer and powder cost RRP. That was a done deal as they are necessities to my reigime and well..you can never have too much make-up I say.

The gift set comes inside a black silk duffel bag with a make up bag and two light optimising products - the primer and the translucent powder (£30)

The make up bag itself is of a reasonable size, in radiant red embellished with juicy red lips. The bag comes in a lovely black, silk bag within the classic NARS packaging. Although it is irrelevant as it goes straight in the bin, I was impressed with the packaging of the set and the silk bag is sure to come in handy!

If you are a NARS virgin and have never used either products, I would reccommend you to pop down to your nearest store (Space NK/Selfridges) and try them out. The translucent powder is great for setting your foundation, and whilst the block white colour can be alarming, it appears as translucent as the name says it should be. With light refelcting particles in both the powder and the primer, they complement you for a glowing and radiant complexion. A must have in my eyes.
