VLV Fitness Challenge - Week 2 & 3

So I realise I'm actually pretty behind here already because I started a week late ! Whoops! So Technically the tuesday just gone was the end of week two but I'm going to do my posts on a Friday and we can all just pretend I did week one right ? *winkwink*

This week has actually been much harder than I'd thought. Getting to the gym has been near impossible. Mentally anyway. It's cold and raining outside and I just want to curl up with a cup of coffee.  Luckily I bought Liam an Xbox One for Christmas and who knew there was such a giant fitness app? I will let everyone know how that goes when I try it out.

The recipe trying also slightly failed I tried to make this Broccoli, Avacado and Lime Salad. I , urm , didn't have any avocado. So I did the broccoli and did some pan fried cannolini beans in paprika and chill and served it with a sweet potato mash which was leftover from last nights tea. Holy Moly that dressing is AMAZING. I think I will be putting it on everything fro now on.

Thankfully this week coming I am totally prepared. Food shop done and fingers crossed it should be smooth sailing. Haha joke.

(I'm now coming back to read this a week later)

Said week did not go well. I was SO organised but I forgot I was going to Germany for a week to spend some time with my best friend on his tour with the "12 Tenors." Cue one week on a tour bus with a lot of booze and nothing but McDonalds and sandwiches. Urgh.

Luckily I did the planning before hand so I've just going to re-use the week and start over. D'oh.
Will let everyone knows how it goes on Friday ;)

Keep going everyone !

VLV Fitness Challenge - Starter Post

So the Rockabilly Socialite is holding a Viva Las Vegas fitness challenge so that everyone can make their little goals and achieve something before they go. Some people want to loose weight and some are trying to eat better. Since going back to cheerleading and trying to work more normal hours this year I've been eating pretty much the same things over and over and they aren't always too good for me! On top of that I really want to be in the best shape I can for the Viva pool party and my upcoming cheer comp! This means I want ABS!

So What Are my Goals?

1. Try two new healthy recipes a week - one snack and one main meal
2. To go to the gym at least once a week
3. To have a proper 4 pack for the bikini party!

How Am I going To Do It?!

Hello 2014!

Firstly Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday time and your high waisted trousers aren't too uncomfortable! While we are still in the festive spirit, I thought I'd share with you a little outfit I wore to a Christmas Dinner Party at my Mums house! This year I'm trying to take my entire life in a slightly more chic direction business included. Don't worry there will still be PLENTY of vintage involved but I think there will be a bigger mix and some slightly more eclectic choices!

Jumpsuit: French Connection A/W13 
T-Shirt: TU @ Sainsburys 
Shoes: Office
Necklace: Marks & Spencer
Bangle and Ring: Thrifted

These shoes were a £25 quid purchase in the office sale and dear golly how I adore them. They are my current favourite by miles! Also I cannot believe I didn't own a jumpsuit before now. They are so comfy, like a chic onesie. However if you call it a onesie i will kill you. On that note I shall leave you with my best favourite  most interesting (?) picture taken. This was my poor attempt at a Miley Cyrus face.
