Walking/Jogging...

In today's post, I am going to be showing you where I like to go walking and jogging. These two types of exercises are what I mainly do on a weekly basis as I have an easy location for me to get to and also this is something that I don't mind doing as much as full workouts. I prefer to go when the weather is nicer because I find it a lot easier and more enjoyable but a lot of the time the weather is quite dull as we do live in England...





The first thing that I do is walk across some fields which are behind my house. There are about 4 in total and this is how I get to Brayton Barf which is the main route which I go on. I don't mind walking across the fields as long as it hasn't been raining and quite a lot of people use the same path route on the fields so its quite easy to get across them. I quite like walking across the fields at the beginning as it gives me time to warm up a bit and get ready for my smaller workout. 



I love walking up the hill at the barf and looking at the view. On this particular day the sky was really clear and the sun was out. I thought that it looked really pretty and its a nice stop to take a quick break and catch my breath after running up the hill...


The next part of my route is the main section of my walk/jog. The place that I go is called Brayton Barf and I have gone here ever since I was little. Its quite a nice length and it also has some uphill sections as well which I think is good to include as part of my workout. I try to go walking or jogging 2 times a week and I also have some other exercises that I do for the rest of the week so that its varied. I don't mind going walking on a nice day as I find it relaxing and easier to do when the suns out.



The two main things which I always need for when I am going out on a walk or a jog are my trainers and my phone. Having trainers is an obvious thing which everyone knows that they need! But having my phone and some headphones is an essential as I find it very helpful and makes it a lot more interesting. I also find that sometimes it can make it seem like the walk has gone a lot quicker as well. At the minute, I have been listening to Ellie Goulding a lot as she is one of my favourites and I will hopefully be getting tickets to her tour next year!!

I hope you have enjoyed reading my post about where I like to go walking or jogging. I think that adding this into your exercise plan is quite nice as its not as difficult as some workouts and its a nice one to do on a sunny day...

Current DVD Favourite's...

Watching films is definitely one of my favourite things to do! I love going to the cinema or having film nights at home. I never really get bored of watching films, even if they are the same ones that have been watched over and over again! I have also currently just got Netflix, so I love finding new films on there! I have quite a big DVD collection and I love been able to have a lot to choose from. Although, sometimes it does take me and my friend Beth a while to choose a film...:) For today's post, I have decided to show you my current DVD favourite's that I have loved watching in the past month. I have tried to pick a variety of DVD's, from romance to action. I have chosen 5 for you in total...


1. Friends with Benefits

Friends with Benefits is an American romantic comedy film, starring, Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis. I think that this film is a great comedy and has a really nice romantic twist too. I really love the actors that are invloved in this film and I think that it is a great film to make you laugh and watch with your friends. No matter how many times I watch this, I still laugh and love it every time. 


2. Insurgent

Insurgent is the second film of the Divergent series! This one is an American science fiction adventure film starring Theo James and Shailene Woodley. I'm sure everyone has heard about this film as its a really popular series! I love the Divergent series and Insurgent is definitely my current favourite film! I love all of the action and the romance within the film too. I think that the actors are amazing and all of the sets and locations in the film are really good as well! I have watched this film so many times already and I can guarantee that I will never get bored of it.




3. Legally Blonde


Legally Blonde is an American comedy film starring Reece Witherspoon. I first watched this film a few months ago and I really enjoyed it! Everyone has always spoke about it and I have recently just bought Legally Blonde 2 to watch as well! I think it is a perfect film for a girly night in and is a film that always makes me laugh. This is a DVD that I will always have in my collection from now on and is one that I have been reaching for a lot recently. 


4. The Vow

The Vow is an American romantic drama film starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams. I recently watched this film as it was on TV a few months ago. It has been one that I have wanted to watch for a while and I'm really happy that I did watch it! I really love the story line in the film and I also love the setting of the film too. I think this is also another perfect film for a girly night in too. I have always loved these two actors so its no surprise that I love the film!

5. Mr & Mrs Smith

Mr and Mrs Smith is an American romantic comedy action film starring Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. I have always loved films that have a lot of action in them but also a romantic story line as well. I also love this film because of Angelina and Brad too as I think they are amazing actors and work really well together in this film. I have loved this film for years as its the type of film which I love watching. I never get bored of watching it again and again but I will go through phases where I will watch it all the time and this past month has definitely been one of those times!




I hope you have enjoyed reading this post and I hope I have given you some inspiration of new films to watch or remember old ones that you forgot you loved! I have left some links down below of where you can buy these DVD's if you want to purchase them for yourselves!

Topshop Wishlist: Autumn

Autumn is one of my favourite times of year as I love wearing big jumpers and ankle boots. I also love that you can wear darker shades of makeup and nail varnish too! Today I have put together my wishlist from Topshop. Topshop has always been one of my favourite shops and I especially love when they bring in there autumn collection as I always love the colours of the clothes. My wishlist includes mostly day time outfits but also a few evening outfits as well...

Dresses: Daytime and Evening

Roll Neck Stripe Dress £32

Ribbed Bardot Dress £45

I love black clothes and I'm constantly wearing it all the time! So I love when autumn comes because I know its acceptable with the colder weather! I loved the style of the daytime dress as it looks really flattering but casual as well. I thought that the evening dress was a really nice fit and shape, and of course, I love the colour too!

Top and Shirt:

Side Split Top £30

Super-Soft Checked Shirt £30

I chose two different styles for my wishlist! I chose the first one as I really loved the colour of it and I thought that it fitted nicely going into Autumn. I also thought that its the kind of top that goes with anything! Jeans, leggings, skirts...The second top I chose is no surprise for me as I love Checked shirts! I think that they look really nice and are really comfy to wear too! I chose this particular one because I loved the colour!

Skirt and Trousers:

Denim Pocket Skirt £28

Cropped Paperbag Waist Trousers £40

I decided to add this skirt to my wishlist because I have wanted one for so long but I've never got round to buying one yet! I think that this style of skirt has come back into fashion again and I think it would look really nice for an Autumn outfit. You could wear it with tights and ankle boots and its perfect for the type of weather. The colour of the trousers is definitely one of my favourite at the moment! I have recently bought quite a few items of clothing in this colour so I had to add these to my wishlist! I really love the shape and style of these trousers. They could be worn casual or dressed up! 

The Jumpsuit:

Drape Front Jumpsuit £60

This jumpsuit definitely caught my eye when looking on the Topshop website. I loved the colour and really loved the style! I thought that this would be the perfect jumpsuit to wear throughout the day as it looks really comfy, or, it could be worn with heels for a night out too!

Bag and Boots:

Fold-Over Backpack £34

Be Mine Heeled Ankle Boots £39

Finally, I of course had to add a bag and a pair of boots to my wishlist because that is definitely one of my favourite things about Autumn fashion! I always seem to choose a black bag because I just think that it goes with everything. I have started to get back into backpacks again ever since I have seen Zoe Sugg (Zoella) wearing one a lot more often! I thought that this one was a perfect size for everyday use. The boots are also black, but again, for the same reason! I really like heeled boots and I think that they add something extra to your outfit. I think that these ones are a really good price for the quality and an essential for Autumn!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post, all of the items are from Topshop! I have left links to all of the items at the bottom of this post. I will be back posting on Saturday with a new lifestyle post...

2015 MTV Video Music Awards | Fashion and Beauty

On Sunday 30th August, the VMA's were held in Los Angeles. I love when events like this happen because I love to see all the celebrities and what they have chosen to wear to the event. Unfortunately, I didn't go to the event so the images on this blog post are from taken from E Online! So, if you want to see more images of the event, I'll leave a link to their website at the bottom of the post. I have decided to write this blog post about my favourite fashion and beauty looks from the VMA's. I love getting inspiration from their looks and seeing which names they are wearing as well...

Fashion


Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie Jenner

The Kardashian's always wear stylish clothes, so there's no surprise that these were two of my favourite fashion looks from the event. Kourtney wore a pink jumpsuit and I really loved the colour of this! I thought that it looked really nice against her skin tone as she has a tan and I also thought the colour worked really nicely with her long black hair. It was a really simple outfit but worked really well! Kylie wore a camel coloured long sleeved mini dress. I thought that the pattern on her dress was really stylish and I loved the gold heels she wore with the outfit as well! Kylie also wore a black wig which I thought suited her and went nicely with the whole outfit!

Vanessa Hudgens

This was my favourite look from the VMA's! Vanessa Hudgens wore a long pink dress with a pattern of flowers. I really loved the style of the dress and the length of it too. The colour of the dress is a beautiful light pink shade and this is one of my favourite things about the look. I just think that everything about the dress suits her perfectly and her long wavy black hair helps to bring the look together. This is my favourite look from the VMA's and is something that I would defiantly choose to wear if I was attending!

Bella Thorne
Picture from: E Online

Bella Thorne has always been a style icon to me so I instantly knew that I would love whatever she chose to wear for the event. Bella Thorne wore a white dress which had two thin straps and a slit down one side. I thought that this was a really simple outfit but looked really elegant and stylish. She also wore some silver heels with the dress too. I love how the outfit is all one plain colour but is one of the best outfits from the night. Having her hair up worked with the simplicity of the outfit and allowed us to see all the details. This is also an outfit that I would choose to wear!

Selena Gomez
Picture from: E Online

Selena Gomez is a massive style icon and I think that her fashion taste is very similar to mine, which is why I loved her look from the VMA's. Selena wore a long black long sleeved dress with a zip down the front and she also wore black platform heels too. Many of the fashion looks I have chose are very simple but effective as this is definitely the same! The fitted dress works well with her figure and her natural curled hair look helps bring the outfit together! I'm not 100% sure, but I think that she changed her outfit at some point during the night. In her recent Instagram photo of the VMA's, her outfit is slightly different and I also love this look too! This outfit is also black and has two slits down the front and had two thick straps rather than long sleeved.

I also had to mention my favourite makeup looks of the night as there were so many! The first look that I wanted to mention is Kim Kardashian West! A lot of people love her makeup looks and knows that she will always have a perfect makeup look for anything she goes too! This look consisted of flawless skin, nude lips and a brown smokey eye. I thought that this natural look worked really well with her hair which was away from her face and the colour of her dress too. One of my favourite parts of the look were definitely her brows and her contouring! 

Picture from: Lindsey's Instagram

Lindsey Morgan is an actress in The 100 which is one of my favourite TV shows!! I thought that her makeup look for the VMA's was gorgeous! The look consisted of flawless skin, perfect brows, red lips and perfect liner. I thought that the colours within the look worked really well her her hair and eyes. Especially the bronzer on her cheeks and the shade of her lipstick. My favourite part of her look is definitely the eyes as they look big and the eyeliner is perfectly done. Lindsey Morgan is always someone I look to for fashion and beauty inspiration so you should defiantly do it too!

Cara Delevingne

My final favourite makeup look from the VMA's was definitely Cara Delevingne! This look is the type of makeup look that I would usually wear. The look consisted of nude lips, smokey eyes and defined brows. I thought that this look suited Cara really well and worked well with her outfit too. Nude lipsticks are my favourite so I really liked the shade of her lipstick and I thought that it suited her skin tone nicely. The smokey eyes matched the colour of her dress and allowed the makeup and fashion look to connect. 

Events like the VMA's is something that I always look forward too as I love seeing all of the celebrity looks. This years VMA's consisted of a lot of looks that I loved and my favourites came from my celeb style icons which worked out really well!
