PayasUgym: The New Way To Keep Fit

We all know that with hectic schedules and last minute plans, the gym just sometimes doesn’t fit into our day. For example, you’re meeting your friend at one side of the city and your gym’s at the other or that business meeting overruns, meaning that you don’t quite have time to make that 6pm spin class. You know there’s no chance that today’s workout is happening. Well, that was until the clever people of PayasUgym created this fabulous idea for busybodies all over the UK; a pass that allows you into any gym, at any time, in any place.

Top up your pass. Search the website for gyms, pools and classes near you. Head to the venue and get working out. It’s as simple as that. From yoga to swimming, bootcamps to HIIT, dance to swim classes or even just the gym, PayasUgym offers a number of options in locations near to wherever you may find yourself!

So next time you’re meeting your friend at the other side of the city, no problem! You might just be able to fit in a quick session before cocktails, as you can head to that gym right next to the cocktail bar… Perfect for people who are always on the go or for those who simply love to switch up their workouts.

If you want to find out more or have a taster for yourself, head down to their London event Urban Movement on Saturday 5th Feb. Taking place 9am-12pm in a secret location, you get to try six workouts for just £10! See you there? xx

 

 

Summer Glow, All Year Long.

So the Christmas and New Year celebrations are well and truly over. Most of us are back at work feeling a little run down after over indulging and our moods gloomier than the cold winter weather. All of a sudden the next thing to look forward to seems to be Summer. Oh the long days, hot nights, constant buzz and killer tans. We’re either penning in that summer escape or (for the more impatient ones of us) scanning the internet for those last minute deals.

Either way, by this time of year I’m usually feeling ridiculously pale- yes, even with my part-African mix- and I too am searching for that warm weather getaway. However, this year I’m looking surprisingly tanned and it’s all down to one little pot of magic- raw coconut oil.

Myself and my boyfriend have been using coconut oil as a moisturiser since returning from holiday last August. It’s worked wonders for our skin and nearly 6 months on, has managed to maintain our tans. In the midst of winter my skin is usually tired and dry after being deprived of the sunshine that it craves for so long. Instead, it’s healthy and glowing. Almost as if I’ve just returned from a quick weekend getaway! I’ve never seen anything like it. What’s more, I have a glowing boyfriend to match.

Applied daily, raw coconut oil will deeply moisturise your skin helping you to look and be healthier all year round. It’s fully natural, so there are no nasty chemicals that you might find in man-made moisturisers and averaging at around £6-£10 for a medium sized pot, it will last you for a good few months. Just be careful when applying to your face. Oil isn’t the best here, especially if you are prone to blemishing, therefore apply to the skin in circular motions before bed and wash off with a cleanser immediately after application for the most effective results.

I use Vita Coco Raw Coconut Oil and paid £8.49 for a 500ml tub. For moisturised skin and lasting tans, I would definitely recommend giving it a try! xx

KUTULA

Camo’s on my checklist this season. As is sportswear (obviously). Oh and black, as always. Now if there’s one brand that’s ticking all three boxes, it’s newly born streetwear brand KUTULA.

Multi-talented designer Jimi Herrtage created this 34 piece collection where you can basically mix and match every single item. The brand’s monochrome colour scheme and urban camoflague print runs across all pieces making it oh-so-easy to achieve that effortlessly cool look.

It’s no wonder I wanted to shoot my faves (including the reversible bomber jacket!!) on a hot summer’s day- gloomy London had to do. Jimi’s trip to South Africa inspired KUTULA, with the name actually meaning ‘peace’ in Zulu dialect. There’s me thinking it can’t get any better, then I discover that the brand also travel the world hunting for talent across the arts to showcase across all digital content… Need I say any more?

You can see more from KUTULA on Instagram and Twitter- @kutulaarmy- or online right here. Prices start from £25 and you can shop for both men and women.
