New Gymshark Work Out Gear

Like most people I think I’ve got a love/hate relationship with the gym, I love that feeling after a good work out and it definitely helps me mentally, just being able to clear your head and focus on what set you’re doing is refreshing, not to mention I feel amazing when I can see results. The hate part comes from feeling guilty when I haven’t been for a week or if I’ve been overdoing it with the treats … which I definitely do! As much as I do enjoy the gym I sometimes think to myself “Damn, I’m gonna have to do this pretty much all my life to make sure I’m kinda happy with my body” and then my mind swirls into things like how am I going to get my body back after having kids some day but that’s just an example of how dramatic I can be at times.

Anyway, for a while now I’ve wanted to invest in some quality gym clothes from actual work out brands instead of wearing my same old Primark or Vietnam spesh ones … if you know me you know what I mean! So for my birthday this year my wonderful boyfriend surprised me with some different items that honestly I’m in love with, I truly feel ten times more confident in the gym when I’m wearing these new pieces, it’s so crazy how you can tell the difference in quality straight away, I don’t know if I’ll be able to go back to high street store bits, this might be an expensive do. So I thought I would show you guys my new lil pieces and I will put links in as always …

Is OnlyFans Empowering Women?

So I’m sure you’ve all heard of the site that’s on almost everyone’s lips called OnlyFans? If you haven’t let me just fill you in, so basically the site describes itself as a way for content creators to interact with their followers who are willing to pay a bit of dolla for their posts/videos etc. Now on the OnlyFans site it says that anyone can join and post things like tutorials, selfies and anything else along those lines, however what it’s become notorious for is women and men uploading “nudes” and sort of explicit content to earn some coin when they get subscribers … are you still following?

Why I’m Finally Embracing My Natural Hair

From about the age of 13/14 i’ve straightened my hair, it started off with just my fringe … cool I know and then I wanted my entire wig to be sleek and straight. My natural hair is curly and I don’t mean like waves here and there, I mean full on original, ginger Annie curls … if you know, you know!

I literally HATED my hair, the amount of times i’ve looked at another girls hair and wished I had hair like theirs is unmeasurable, believe me, hair envy is real. I remember being little and grown ups would be like “you have such beautiful hair” and “look at those curls” but all I wanted was to have straight hair. I got my mam to straighten it with the iron when I was about 16, yes the iron, i’m old now okay this was ten years ago.

I think i’m gonna break our trip down into three blog posts just because we did so much and I don’t want to keep you here for ages reading through my babble so here’s part one below.

I love doing these type of chats with you guys, mainly because I don’t have to think that hard but also because I love reading these kind of posts from other bloggers and find them rather therapeutic, is that weird?
