Merry Fitmas everybody!

Merry Christmas!

Ho ho ho Merry Christmas! If you hadn’t already noticed I love Christmas jumpers and this year I could feed my addiction guilt free because for every Primark Christmas jumper sold in any store, Primark was donating £2 to charity, Make A Wish. Plus it was Christmas jumper day for charity, Save the Children. As you can see I used that as the perfect excuse to go wild! I have more Christmas jumpers than you can shake a stick.
Fitting really, as the office parties are in full swing, festive adverts are all over the box, and we just can’t stop Instagramming those Starbucks red cups so it’s safe to say that the yuletide season is here in full force. I cannot wait to kick back and relax with a plate full of turkey and sprouts and this year is set to be better than ever as I’ve just successfully completed a gruelling course at The Training Rooms, where I’ve been learning all about health, fitness and nutrition. I’ve always been a bit of geek when it comes to health and vitality and feel it’s really important, which is why I wanted to take it one step further and get some industry know how.
After weeks of swotting up I am now a fully qualified fitness professional and sports nutritionist (wahoo!) so expect a bit more fitness chat from me in the New Year and on my YouTube channel. Let me tell you, mince pies should not be on the menu this Christmas (although obviously they are) but I’ve been earning my over-indulgences in the lead up to Christmas at Fitness First. 10 push ups a day will be keeping my bingo wings at bay and it may be cold outside, but in doors at the gym there’s a rainbow.

Outside of the gym there was an AJ shaped poser, as I was flexing with SportStylist.com, for an exclusive Nike Women, street style photo shoot called “How I Style It”. I’ve shot with Sport Stylist before and love that it’s a platform for women to receive style updates on sportswear and also to shop for sports products. I was chuffed to be modelling for them in outfits that I’d styled so here’s a behind the scene, sneaky peak.

And on that Christmas and fitness note, it’s a tarrah from me.
Merry Fitmas!

Meeting Chiwetel Ejiofor and Sandy from Gogglebox

I got the full Barbie experience at the Barbie Loves Wildfox pop-up event at Selfridges in London this week. Yes, that’s right, everyone’s favourite Malibu babe and LA based label Wildfox joined forces to create some Barbie-inspired outfits, which, let’s face it, is every girl’s dream. I got to finger through the fun and retro, 80’s collection and with all that music, cocktails and clothes galore I couldn’t help but yelp “come on Barbie let’s go party!”
Life in plastic, really is fantastic as I also bumped into the BAFTA Award winning star of 12 Years a Slave Chiwetel Ejiofor, who can be my Ken any day and people don’t usually like being put in a box, but hey, if it’s a life-sized Barbie box then I’m in. Literally.

Back in the real world, Black Beauty and Hair Magazine held their annual award ceremony at the Hilton Hotel in London to celebrate the industry’s super star hair stylists of 2014. I got the chance to show off my new ombre blue tresses as I presented the award for Colourist of the Year to Natalie Joseph of hair salon Hype Coiffure and lucky old me even bumped into Gogglebox favourite Sandy, who is as much a hoot in person as she is on the telly. I’d share a takeaway with her any day.

From one TV fave to another, I’ve been as hooked as ever to this year’s I’m a Celeb – still not over Gemma Collins walking out (why?!). People often strive to turn what they love into a career and this week I did just that as I got to chat all things I’m a Celeb on a new ITV2 show coming out this week. The show will be showcasing the best of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, giving an affectionate look back at the highlights and lowlights of the series.

In other news, word on the street suggests Kate Middleton gets her royal duty ready skin by getting an OxyJet facial treatment so I popped down to Clinica Fiora in Covent Garden to give it a go. I’ve filmed the whole thing and put it on my YouTube channel so that you too can get the royal treatment.
Until next time, tarrah!
