Trying to get fit

I've never really been into sports. I went on and off to a gym last year, and since moving this year I've joined a new one and have started going to the classes (a 'core' class nearly killed me!) and have been really enjoying getting fit. I am no where near where I want to be but I'm starting :)
I recently invested in some Nike Roscherun trainers a few weeks ago and I've been really loving them. The top is pure mesh and it feels like I'm wearing nothing, while the sole is really springy! I don't go running in them as I (this will sound bad) don't really like running, but I used them at the gym.. ant they're always there if I change my mind!

I've also recently purchased the Slender Blend from Protein World which I've been using as a kind of meal replacement/ after workout snack. I've been putting it in smoothies and sometimes jsut having it plain with a little milk and water. I really like the vanilla taste. I picket it as it helps with weight loss but also because it had quite good reviews.

And lastly my Davina 2kg weights I bought over a year ago. I go on and off using them, at the moment I'm loving them and doing some of the exercises from my core class at home with them.

Have you tried anything like this lately, any tips or tricks- or recipes? I'm always on the hunt for more!

Spring shades: nails

I love the pretty shades that seem to come out and gain popularity over Spring time. Especially the nail colours, as lets face it; mint green doesn't look so good as an eyeshadow does it!? Over the years I've tried quite a few brands, but I think these below are def my favourites. And these pretty colours are my fav for this time of year!
L-R: Essie- Fiji, Essie- Mint Candy Apple, Nails Inc-Blenheim Terrace, Barry M-Gelly Blueberry and Sally Hansen- Aria Red-y?

I think they're the perfect spring shades, the pastel colours are my fav, and the blueberry is great for all year round. Aria Red-y is a recent purchase I'm loving, it's a lovely red/deep pink!

What are your favourite spring nail colours? Any recommecdations?
