Working Out On Your Period (Modibodi Review)

Working Out On Your Period (Modibodi Review)

 AD - contains a gifted item but all opinions are my own

Periods are never fun, especially when you want to work out. This sort of scenario normally plays out in my head when I want to work out on my period: 

I want to wear my cute light-coloured leggings...but what if I have an accident? Okay fine, let's go for the dark pair then. But now what to wear, pad or tampon? If I wear a pad, it might show at the back...but if I wear a tampon, what happens if I get leakage? 

On top of that, I'm trying my best to make my period as eco-friendly as possible and so with the fact that I'm still scared of menstrual cups, I've been sticking to organic and biodegradable pads and tampons. 

I have also been starting to look into reusable underwear, which seems like a great option but it's still all very new to me. So when I was approached by Modibodi, a brand who makes reusable underwear, and they asked if I would like to try out their new leakproof workout shorts, I jumped at the chance! Did the shorts live up to the leakproof label put on them? Let's find out...

Strawberry Mint Mojito Recipe

Strawberry Mint Mojito Recipe

After posting pictures of these mojitos on my Instagram stories, I got so many messages asking for the recipe. And to be honest, I can't blame those people, as these are delicious!

Fresh, minty and sweet, they make the perfect summer cocktail, especially if you're still a bit nervous about going out to a pub or bar just yet. 

The best part about this recipe is that it takes no time at all to make up, and you don't need a load of complicated, expensive ingredients to make it either. Plus the strawberries give the classic mojito a fruity update that will keep you coming back to this recipe time and time again (as spoken from someone who has done this herself).

6 Summer Makeup Bag Essentials

6 Summer Makeup Bag Essentials


AD- Contains affiliate links (ad-aff) where I receive a small percentage for any sales made through the link, and all products are PR products that have been sent to me previously with no obligation to post. 

Changing up my makeup bag when the season's change has become part of my routine, just like changing over my seasonal clothes. 

In the summer, I find myself reaching for more tinted moisturisers than foundations, light powders, and warmer colour tones in my lipsticks, blushes and eyeshadows. 

Regardless of what I have in my makeup bag, there are always some essentials that make their way in during the summer months, and I use them every day in some shape or form. They have become my summer beauty companions, and I can easily create a whole makeup look just from using these products!

The Rise of the Lockdown Outfit Photos

At the start of lockdown, the blogging and content creator world seemed to take on that GIF of a confused looking John Travolta in Pulp Fiction. Everyone was confined to their four walls and whatever outside space they had, and the opportunities that everyone had for creating content, from going out bulk shooting with their photographer to getting your family, friends or our other halves to take a cute photo of you while out and about completely dried up. 

It seemed in particular to hit those who focused on fashion the most. Those perfectly coordinated Instagram feeds editorial style blog posts and beautifully shot videos were left hanging in the balance. 

Now I'm by no means saying that this is the worst thing to happen due to COVID. The deaths, anxiety about the future, unemployment and hit to the economy have been truly awful. But during a time of such extreme sadness and worry, it was positive to notice how everyone started to adapt to our new way of life. It showed strength in carrying on, even if it was something so small as outfit photos!
