My Quick Everyday Home Workout (Without Weights!)

Heyaa,

I thought I would like to share with you my current quick, everyday home workout that doesn’t USE any weights. I made sure that there were no weights needed for this particular workout so that everyone can do it, whether you have access to gym equipment or not. But you can easily use weights if you want to!

 

So here is the workout, and I made sure that there was a combination of exercises that strengthen a particular part of your body. (You can also alter the amount or length of each exercise to make it easier or harder). Here it goes!

  • 20 crunches

  • 20 squats

  • 20 pushups

  • 15 fire hydrants each leg

  • 20 butt raises

  • 10 burpees (chest to ground)

  • 30 seconds of fast running on the spot

60 SECOND REST

  • 15 leg lifts on the ground

  • 10 front support twists each arm

  • 15 lunges each leg

  • 20 ankle raises 

  • 50 mountain climbers

  • 20 russian twists with feet raised

  • 20 donkey kicks on hands and knees (each leg)

  • 10 burpees (chest to ground)

  • 30 seconds of fast running on the spot

 

That is my go to quick, weightless workout that I currently do as often as I can. It may seem a bit difficult to you but it is because I have been working out and doing strength since I was 5 (for gymnastics), so I am used to difficult, high intensity workouts.

I would love to hear if you tried this workout at home and if you thought it benefited you in any way.

Please stay friendly in the comments below and have an amazing day 🙂

Dior Exhibition NGV Melbourne!

Hey!

Today I have a very exciting blog about the 70 years of Dior exhibition in the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) with lots of pictures of the absolutely stunning dresses and outfits on showcase. (By the way, I did travel to Melbourne for a small holiday and even though I was planning on blogging about it, I was only there for a few days so I decided to just enjoy myself )

When I first entered the NGV and went to line up for the exhibition there was 50 people waiting in line to go in, that’s how popular the exhibition was! After waiting half an hour in what seemed like a never ending queue we finally entered a huge part of the museum which was lined with the beautiful dresses that Dior has produced ever since 1946! Every single dress was so intricately designed and some took hundreds of hours to make. I don’t think we, living in the 21st century where we can buy a dress for ten bucks at target realise how much effort it used to take to just make one dress. 

So here are some pics of the dressess!

This was the first dress ever made by Dior and is extremely famous and well known.

There were many different designers for Dior throughout the years who had very different taste in fashion and different aims for the fashion company. Some designers who worked for Dior are Yves Saint Laurent, John Galliano and Marc Bohan.

These two dresses would have to be one of my favourites! I literally stood there looking at all the intricate details of these dresses for ten minutes!

 

So that was it! I had such an amazing time at the Dior Exhibition NGV in Melbourne as it really opened my eyes to what fashion was like in the 1900’s! I would to hear if any of you have ever been to this exhibition 🙂

So I know this is kind of a boring and short post, but I just wanted to explain the reasons for why I haven’t been blogging for the past month or so.

But I am back!!!!

I hope to post at least once a week and I am very excited to continue sharing my thoughts and adventures with you 🙂

I have some very exciting posts coming up, that I cant wait for you to see!

The Perfectly Imperfect Tag!

Haii Again,

I am very happy today because I was nominated for the Perfectly Imperfect Tag by one of my absolute faveeeeee bloggers The Girl with Iron Wings! She is an AWESOME blogger who always produces awesome content!! I would definitely recommend you read her blog. (By The Way I was nominated for this tag more than a month ago so it is EXTREMELY belated, please don’t judge)

So basically this tag is all about embracing your perfections, improving your self esteem and loving yourself. I think it is such an awesome tag that has good intentions behind it! Lets get straight into it 🌸

R U L E S:

  1. Copy/paste the image of the tag in your post.
  2.  Make sure to share a little blurb about the creator of the tag.
  3. Give a shout out to the person who nominated you.
  4. Talk about what your strengths are, and what you love about yourself. These can range from anything positive about you, or your future aspirations and goals.’
  5. Who/what are you inspired by, and how do you want to make a difference.
  6. What’s your advice to those that struggle to love themselves, and to those that doubt themselves?
  7. Lastly nominate as many bloggers as you would like (ranging from 1 to whichever amount you choose) and let them know that you nominated them.

 

A   B I T   A B O U T   T H E   C R E A T O R:

So this tag was created by the blogger Aqsa, being honest I haven’t read her blog but I have heard many people say that she has an awesome blog! But I would like to thank her for creating the Perfectly Imperfect Tag. 🙂  

 

M Y   S T R E N G T H S   A N D   W H A T   I   L O V E   A B O U T   M Y S E L F:

I would have to say that some of my strengths are my strong determination, my bravery and my loyalty to my friends and family. I think I am a very determined person as I rarely give up and always try my hard to overcome any challenges I face. I remember that when I was about 6 I couldn’t tie my shoelaces so I sat right in the middle of the room and kept try and trying to tie them for half an hour! Some things I love about myself are that I try and always look on the bright side of things, I am very kind to others, I am extremely resilient and I have very clear goals for the future.

W H O   I N S P I R E S   Y O U:

My mum would definitely be my biggest inspiration as she always helps me and encourages me to be the best person I could possibly be. She has supported me in everything I do and we always have so much fun together. I can’t even think about what my life would be like if she wasn’t in it ❤️  

A D V I C E   T O   T H O S E   W H O   D O   N O T   L O V E   T H E M S E L V E S:

Learn to embrace who you are and accept that you’re not anyone else.  Cherish every moment you have where you can just embrace your own presence and understand how much you mean to everyone else around you. Think about the amazing qualities you possess and all of the good things about you. Do this and you will learn to love yourself more than ever before.

 

M Y  N O M I N E E S :

1. Simply Serenity

2. Amelia in Hull

3.Kittyp0p

4. Princess Blabber Mouth

5. Angel Spartaness

6. Tabi Bear

7. Vogelstand

 

So that was the Imperfectly Perfect Tag! I love doing these tags sooooo much especially when it is for a great reason, like spreading self love. If you liked this blog please be sure to like it and follow the blog.

My Favourite Workout Videos!

Hello there,

Today’s blog is going to be a tad  different to my usual blogs because it is going to be about my absolute favourite workout videos that motivate me and have great results. I know most people hate working out or even the idea of working out, but I love the feeling of accomplishment I get after finishing a workout and knowing that I am doing something good for my body. I would love to hear if you guys have any good workouts on youtube that you think I may like.

 

So here they are (in no particular order):

  1. 10 Minute Ab Workout by XHIT Daily – This was actually the first workout video that I tried and I really love it. It features ten different exercises for 30 seconds repeated twice that all help to get you a six pack.

Screen Shot 2017-10-01 at 2.51.55 pm

2. Cardio Workout 5 minutes by Bowflex – Cardio is one of my favourite types of workouts and I feel that this is a really great workout that you can easily do at home. It is simple and great for beginners. I actually repeat this video so I get a ten min cardio workout.

Screen Shot 2017-10-01 at 2.54.43 pm.png

3. Toned & Defined Arms Workout by Blogilates – This video is more of a recently discovered one as I was only introduced to the fitness youtube channel of Blogilates. When you first watch the workout you don’t think that the simple arm movements will hurt but they really do!

Screen Shot 2017-10-01 at 2.58.06 pm.png

4. 10 Minute Butt and Thigh Workout at Home by FitnessBlender – This particular workout video has great exercises that really hit the spot when you want to tone your butt and your thighs. This video would be particularly good for people who don’t want someone shouting at them to ‘keep going!’ or saying ‘Are you feeling the burn?!’.

Screen Shot 2017-10-01 at 3.02.46 pm.png

5. 30 Minute Dance Cardio by POPSUGAR Fitness – I don’t usually do dance workouts as I don’t feel they are as beneficial as normal cardio in my opinion. However, I really enjoy this fun dance workout as you can groove along to the music will doing something good for your body. It is much longer than my usual workout videos but when you do it time passes by quickly. It also has modifications if you want a less intense workout

Screen Shot 2017-10-01 at 3.20.31 pm.png

6. 3 Minute Ab Workout by XHIT Daily – I do actually love these three minute workouts as they mean I can do them anytime without having to be in a rush. I am always pleasantly surprised with how drastic the results are after I do this extremely quick workout.

Screen Shot 2017-10-01 at 3.35.00 pm.png

 

7. Total Body Tone Workout by Blogilates – I really do love this workout as it is slightly longer and focuses on practically all of the areas on my body I want to strengthen and tone like my arms, abs, butt,  back, and legs. I really like Blogilates as she is really encouraging and motivational in her videos.

Screen Shot 2017-10-01 at 3.46.05 pm.png

8. 10 Minute High Intensity Workout by XHIT Daily – This is another new workout that I have found and is one of the harder ones on this list as you only have very short breaks in between each exercise and is designed to get your heart pumping and make you sweat.

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 9.14.57 pm.png

 

So those were my favourite workouts (as of now) that I feel really benefit and motivate me to be my fittest and healthiest self. Tell me in the comments if you like these type of blogs (or not) or if you have any good workouts you would recommend. I really hope you liked this blog and if you did be sure to like it and follow this blog.

Dotti Accessories Haul!

Helloooooo,

Today I have a blog post a bit different from what I usually post, but I recently bought a bunch of stuff from an awesome website called Dotti. Dotti is a super cool fashion store featuring stunning dresses and just generally amazing clothing. It also has unbelievable accessories. I also love it because it is relatively cheap and doesn’t break your budget. They also have some amazing deals and sales that you will find out about right now…

 

Super Cute Animal Socks!!

These super cute animal themed socks were the first item that I spotted in the store as I have a growing obsession with any type of cute or unusual sock 😂 They are great fit and are crew style which I think is great as you can wear them with trainers without anything poking out. They also feel like they have a tiny bit of elastic which grasps onto your ankle which is super helpful as it makes sure the sock doesn’t fall off. (Don’t mind my hairy legs in the picture 😂)
IMG_1922.JPG

See how cute they are! I couldn’t resist buying them! They were also such a good deal as you got 3 for ten dollars AUS where one is 6 dollars! When you buy the three together you save 8 dollars. Bargain!!!!

IMG_1925.JPG

I was drawn to these socks instantly as elephants are one of my all time favourite animals and the two elephants kissing is too adorable for words 🐘

IMG_1923.JPG

The next pair of socks were these kawaii giraffes on a grey sock with white dots that seem to be smiling at you :3 Cutest giraffes in the world.

IMG_1924.JPG

The final pair of socks is just… just to freaking adorable for words. Even the words a fat panda eating food is just too damn cute 🐼

 

2 Stunning Phone Cases!!

IMG_0904.JPG

As well as having a great deal on the socks, you could get two extraordinary kinda jelly like  phone cases for only 10 dollars! How amazing is that! Again, like the socks I just couldn’t resist. I loved the huge selection of phone  cases and it killed me having to pick just two 😭 It was also so cool to see that there was the same amount of phone cases for iphone 5’s as there was for the newer phones like the iphone 6 or 7.

IMG_0906.JPG

The first phone case I got was this beautiful half transparent phone case with multi coloured feathers on it. I love the simplicity of this design and the awesome gradient of pastel colours on the feathers.

IMG_0908.JPG

I also bought this henna style flower phone case that I adore. I especially love all of the intricate details in the design and that there is always something new to see when you look at the case.

 

Gorgeous Beanie with Pom Pom Ears! 

This beanie is honestly just breathtaking. I normally actually hate beanies (please don’t kill me for saying that) as they always feel super uncomfortable and itchy. But I looooovvvvvvvveeeee this beanie as it is super soft and has is a great material. The tan colour is perfect and I love the added pom poms which I could stroke all day. This was such a great buy, especially for the low price of AUD $20!

Isn’t it adorable!

IMG_1934.JPG

So that was my Dotti accessories haul! I hoped you enjoyed this blog and be sure to check out my other posts and follow this blog. I would love to hear in the comments if anyone has ever shopped at Dotti and what your favourite item was in this haul.

Please stay friendly in the comments section below and have a great day 🙂

My 10 Favourite Youtubers Right Now!

Hiyaaa,

Today’s post is going to be about some of my favourite youtubers at the moment. I know some people don’t really like youtube, but honestly I kinda love it. Even though youtube is nearly a decade old, you have to admit it is still King of the online video world. I also think that it is a really great way to provide easy access to educational and helpful content (wow that’s a mouthful!).

So here is my top ten fave youtubers! (in no particular order):

 

  1. Amelia Gething  – I have just discovered Amelia’s channel recently but I love it so much because all of her videos are super funny and the editing is amazing. My favourite videos of hers are her sketches.

2. Dolan Twins – The Dolan Twins are teenage twins who try tricky challenges and attempt other dangerous tricks in front of a camera while making a slight fool of themselves. Another absolutely hilarious channel!

3. Marzia– I have to say Marzia is my absolute favourite channel as she makes entertaining and interesting vids about fashion, travel, beauty, pugs, lifestyle and occasionally a vlog at least once a week. She also has an online shop which sells the cutest stuff! I even made a post about the Summer Faves box I bought for her, to read it click the link – Marzia’s Merch Part 1: Unboxing and first thoughts!

  1. Liza Koshy – Ok, I have to say that Liza’s channel has to be the funniest channel on youtube in my opinion! Her videos are always soooooo good! She is also one of the fastest growing channel on youtube right now as she gained more than ten million subscribers in just two years! 

Simply Nailogical– As you could probably tell from the name of this channel, it is a channel based mainly around nails. Even though I know when I watch the nail tutorials that I could never do any nailart near as good as her, she is super funny and always does nail videos out of the ordinary!
  

  1. Ryan Higa– Ryan Higa is another channel that has absolutely hilarious sketches and has great content! I especially love when he make video collabs with other awesome youtubers!

  1. I Am Kareno– I Am Kareno is another recently discovered youtube channel that focuses mainly around style, beauty and makeup transformations.  I absolutely love her style and she is amazing at makeup! But the best thing about her youtube channel is her lookbooks!

  1. Grace Helbig– Grace is a fantastic youtuber who makes a huge variety of comedic posts like funny food videos, monthly favourites, crazy makeup tutorials and short sketches. She also has two books, a podcast called Not Too Deep, used to have her very own show on E and is one of the main characters on the Movie Dirty Thirty.

 

  1. Superwoman– IISuperwomanII (Lily Singh) makes awesome funny videos and sketches where she usually dresses up as her parents (it sounds weird but it really isn’t) and shares some relatable problems. She is also a super inspirational person who empowers underprivileged girls around the world through a program she runs called GirlLove.

  1. Zoella– Zoella is another youtuber who makes videos kind of like of the vids that Marzia makes. I love her awesome collab videos and her vlogs showing the beautiful town of Brighton, London (where she lives). She also has a great blog which I love to read and has written the series Girl Online which I love.

 

So these are my favourite youtubers at the moment and I would love to hear about some of your favourites too.

Please stay friendly in the comments section below and have a great day ❤️
