The Body Shop Virgin Mojito

Who knew that Mojitos aren’t just for drinking? I definitely didn’t. That was until I discovered a refreshing new range created by The Body Shop– a zingy cocktail treat that doesn’t come with a hangover (and that radiates your skin rather than draining it)!

Their new special edition Virgin Mojito body care range has dropped right in time for summer. Helping to leave your skin feeling fresh and smelling delicious. Described by the creators as an irresistible blend of the extracts of zesty lime and fresh, crushed mint from the Caribbean, I couldn’t agree more. So as the heat turns up, you can cool down.

As much as I’m a health freak- it’s OK, I admit it- anybody who knows me at all, knows that I love a cheeky cocktail or two. So I was beyond excited to come across this little beaut of a range. There’s the shower gel, scrub, body butter, splash (the fragrance) and sorbet. Sorbet being the light moisturiser, which I just couldn’t resist. It’s the yummiest body care collection that I’ve found in a while and smells just like the real thing. The only problem? I’ve been craving a mojito ever since… That might not be a bad thing though, right?

Refresh yourself now in store or online and if you have any birthdays around the corner then there’s gift sets that might just tickle their fancy. Enjoy! xx

ADAY & Rooftop Yoga

My favourite fitness girls are back in London and they’ve brought some exciting news to the sports-fashion scene- the launch of their brand new sportswear range, ADAY.

To celebrate the launch of ADAY, I was invited down to their East London rooftop yoga event. An evening packed with yoga, amazing views, coconuts and healthy treats, shared with a variety of ladies from the London fitness community including my beautiful fellow blogger friend, Amber.

We started the night with yoga (on the rooftop, of course) held by professional yoga-ess and Cali-turned-New Yorker, Lauren Imparato of iamyoustudio.com. I’m no pro, but I think I can speak for all of the girls when I say that it was one mean yoga class- and I mean that in a good way, of course! Lauren definitely knows her stuff. In fact, she’s previously led yoga at Escape for Good , a three day long event in honour of Muhammad Ali’s seventieth birthday and has been ranked one of the best yoga instructors in New York. We were lucky enough to bag her for her first ever (!!) yoga class in London! The class was fast-paced and challenging, yet everyone, no matter what their yoga ability, managed to have a giggle and I somehow left the session feeling revitalised and relaxed.

After working up a sweat it was time for some well-deserved treats. We sipped coconut juice from the shell- provided by coco-king, Cocofaceuk– and snacked on pine nut salad, vegetable crisps,  beetroot shots and maybe a little wine…

The event was definitely a huge success and ADAY is available online now. It’s looking great- minimal yet differentiated through the use of shape and quality. I even managed to sneak some time in one of the vests for a few cheeky snaps!

Take a look for yourself right here and watch out for the ADAY girls in LA and New York this summer. xx

P.S. Unfortunately I usually dislike coconut juice, but the cocofaceuk was delicious- so if you’re not usually a fan, I definitely recommend a try!

New Balance & Tigeress Take To The Hills

This weekend I took to the forested hills of Hampstead with New Balance and the very talented photographer Dean Martindale. It was a hot (and sweaty) one, but if you don’t train then you don’t gain!

If the beautiful landscape wasn’t enough to keep me motivated, then my New Balance 574 trainers definitely were! Hills are the perfect way to work your full body- especially your legs, bum and core- so with the weather finally picking up, it’s time to show the hills who’s boss…
