I first discovered fitness sensation Kayla Itsines while researching social media influencers just over a year ago.
There’s always that big debate around supplements. Do they really work? Are they a waste of money? Well yes, sometimes they are a waste of money and sometimes they don’t work but choose the right supplement and it can be a great addition to a healthy diet and active lifestyle, increasing energy, muscle tone and general wellness.
Being a mum, I often don’t have time (and if truth be told can’t be bothered) to play around with different makeup looks, so instead I rely on a selection of everyday makeup essentials to help take me from ‘just out of bed’ to ‘polished’ in under 10 minutes.
Giving birth to my son Shiloh in June 2013, at the age of 29, was by far the most rewarding (and the most excruciating) thing I have ever done. Better than getting those ‘A’ grades at A-level, better than seeing my magazine on the shelves in WHSmith and dare I say it (sorry husband) better than my wedding day.
