What’s In My Gym Bag?

Hello my lovelies!

So, this is something I haven’t talked about on my blog so far….however I do think it’s time to start talking about this as it is a pretty large aspect of my life!

On January 1st 2013, I made a new years resolution that I wanted to drastically change my body composition with heavy weightlifting and HIIT training.

I had gained about 20kg (44 lbs) whilst I was pregnant with my son and I was having a very hard time getting the baby weight off…..however I promise to talk more about this specific struggle in a future YouTube video/blog post!

Prepping for Student Life: How to Get Gorgeous Curls on a Budget!

Curly hair care should NOT be costly! Especially when heading to university….

By going natural you’ve technically left the expensive days behind…..we all know that upgrading the weave and those relaxer touch ups are not piggy bank friendly!
