FAT GIRL BEAUTY PROBLEMS

For a long time I’ve been learning startling things about the human body from the TV show, Embarrassing Bodies. Recently I discovered the spin-off, Embarrassing Fat Bodies, and immediately thought to myself,”hey now, isn’t this just going to be a whole show of fat shaming?”. I was wrong, it’s actually incredibly informative but it also made me realise something I hadn’t noticed previously. As I’ve discussed many times, my weight yoyo’s dramatically but something that clicked while I watched this show was that there are certain beauty issues that flare-up when I’m heavier. These are Fat Girl Beauty Problems.

All of these ailments can present in any person – age, weight, race, etc is irrelevant, but I’ve personally found they’re at their worst when I’m carrying extra flub. The emotional and health issues a girl can face from being overweight is enough to deal with. It goes without saying that losing weight is the best solution for these problems but I’m going to tell you how you can ease the burden in the meantime.

Barre Body Exercise Training

Barre. It’s the hottest word in fitness right now. More than a passing trend, this will be an exercise that grows to mass popularity just as we have seen with Yoga and Pilates. But what exactly is Barre? When I try to ask my Barre-loving friends what it is they generally give me the same response, “it’s like ballet exercise”. That doesn’t really tell me much so I decided to ask Australia’s reigning Barre expert and founder of Barre Body studios, Emma Seibold, to give us a bit more insight.

These are the 5 things we all need to know about Barre fitness training.  Continue Reading

Vital Protein Vanilla Pea Protein Powder

Protein powder – two words that previously terrified me. I thought protein powder was reserved for scrawny guys who wanted to turn themselves into Arnold Schwarzenegger-type beefcakes. I never had any desire to look like Arnie so I stayed clear …… until I became vegan, that is.

My path to veganism was both for ethics and health. Researching my health led me to understand that protein does far more than build muscle, and unlike the meat & dairy industry has us believing, it comes from many sources. Now that I knew the importance of protein I was set on making sure my diet included the best possible kind. Pea Protein is considered to be one of the best and in this review I share my very first experiences with it. Did it fatten me up? Read on to find out!  Continue Reading

Eat All The Food Meme

It’s new years eve and the day of indulgence in 2013. This is the day we swear we will change and that the new year will bring us the strength and determination to stick to our goals.

Tangle Teezer and Dessata hairbrushes

Detangling hairbrushes are available from just about everywhere now but when it comes to trusted brands there are a few to choose from. In this post I’ve got Tangle Teezer vs Dessata in a battle of the detangling brushes. Both are priced almost identically (here in Australian anyway) so which brush is worth your dollars?

For this battle I’ve selected the Tangle Teezer The Original to go up against the Dessata Maxi Detangling Brush. I own three Tangle Teezer brushes – The Original, Compact Styler and Aqua Splash – but for this post I’m comparing The Original as it’s the most popular model. Read on to find out which might be the best detangling brush for you.  Continue Reading
