Gone Dark With Under Armour

Just take a moment and think about all the professional athletes there are around the world and the amount of training they do. Then think about what time they get up in the morning, the weather they face, the amount of hours they train and the lack of 'social life' they have, all for the dedication to their sport.

I was challenged by Under Armour to 'Go Dark' on social media for 3 whole days meaning no posting, no selfies, no check-ins - nothing! I was to use this extra time to train and put 'sweat before social' with no distractions and show you what it truly takes to take sports seriously and dedicate so much time to the dark moments - be they very early mornings/late nights or not posting on social media. To Rule Yourself. Read on to see what I got up to and how I found being dark on social media!

'Ath-leisure' Wish List

Hands up who remembers the time when wearing sportswear outside the gym was seen as weird? I know I do, but now it is seen as socially acceptable and totally chic to rock your yoga pants and sweatshirt to pretty much anywhere!

F.B.L Quick Tip #33

Look paler than normally in that selfie you just took?
This is probably because your foundation or moisturizer has too much SPF in it - normally a good thing. If you know you are going to be taking photos, keep an SPF-free product on hand to combat this

Music Series - Street Performers

In almost every city/town centre you are will see street performers. They are out in all weathers and some every day of the week, but have you ever taken the time to stand and listen to one? I'm guessing your answer is probably no. Don't worry, nearly everyone is going to be guilty of this if they actually think about it - me included.

Maybelline Push Up Drama Mascara

Mascara is a must in my makeup bag and in my mind you can never have too many and that is why I was so excited when Maybelline released their new Push Up Drama Mascara!
