Gym Bunny


I'm off to the gym for a yoga class and then a swim and sauna. I've only had one yoga class before and I really enjoyed it so fingers crossed!

When I was getting ready to leave, it suddenly occurred to me to ask you guys something...
Do you put makeup on to go to the gym? Are you a glam gym bunny or a practical gym bunny?

I have to say I probably fit into the former category. I like to put a bit of effort in, but I'll only spend 15 minutes getting ready rather than my full 45.


I use a light foundation and conceal anything that needs it, dust a light setting powder down my t zone and pop on some blusher and that's my face done. Then I fill in my eyebrows quickly, sweep an all over shimmery champagne colour on my lid and finish off with mascara. Something like a Revlon Lip Butter is shortcake is great for the lips!
When it comes to jewellery and hair, I normally leave whatever earrings in I was last wearing and put my hair up into a chignon. Because my natural hair is thick and short it's much easier than a ponytail for me.

I'm not fussy with my gym clothes, I prefer to go all black, a pair of knee length lycra work out shorts and a black sports cami are my usual choice.Sometimes I put a baggy tee over the top if it's a cold day as it can soon be whipped off when you're mid workout.

Let me know what you go for when you go to the gym, and let me know if you have any workout tips! I always love to try something new <3

  1. Lea I'm an all out makeup girl! My hockey team mates will back me up when I say I ensure I am head to toe tanned and polished before hitting the pitch!! As for workouts, I'm not tolerant of the gym so instead mix things up with walking in the peaks, workout DVDs (Nell McAndrew), Wii Fitness Trainer and some swimming in the summer xx

    1. Do you know, you've just made me think, I have a wii and I should definitely try to incorporate that into my workouts! Glad to hear it's not me hehe, sometimes I get odd looks in the gym but I don't think it hurts to take a few minutes out to make sure you look the least Shrekish as possible! x

  2. I have to wear my full face to step outside the house. I don't have the confidence to go out without it!!

  4. I wish I had the money to subscribe to a gym near me but it's so expensive! Just Dance 2 and 3 on the Wii is my workout (not that I can see any results, ergh) but if I were to use a gym I would definitely wear makeup. I think it's daunting enough exercising around people but even more so when you look like death!

    1. It is really expensive I agree, luckily I get a discount at my gym because I study in Leeds. Ha, yes I have no intention of almost dying from exercise and actually looking like I'm dying too! x
