Why am I at the gym? Where did the days go where I could just eat everything and not get fat? It’s not fair. I’m only 21 and there’s still people my age that don’t put on any weight. I’ve literally put on 2 dress sizes in the last 2 years. I totally blame it on university… Eating takeaways because of my lack of cooking skills has done this to me.

Don’t get me wrong, the gym is a brilliant way to keep fit, but I do wish that I didn’t have to come. I remember at 16 I was so enthusiastic about getting a gym membership, I thought it was such an amazing thing to do. However, now that I have to do it, it’s no fun.

I’ve been coming with my mother everyday for the last 5 days. First day was obviously the hardest – today I’m feeling quite fit! I’ve been on the crosstrainer and I’m currently blogging from the bike and I’m exactly 270 calories down. That burns off the cake I had yesterday – I think! The treadmill is my pet hate, it makes my legs hurt!

Everyone reading must think I’m such a moany cow, I promise I’m not!

But seriously, WHY AM I NOT SKINNY YET?!

Coco Chanel Quotes

Chanel is a brand that most of us are familiar with. As much as I’d love to be able to afford one of their totes, buying their makeup is good enough for me (for now). Coco Chanel was an inspiring, iconic woman and since I’m a fan of quotes, here’s a few of her famous onesImage:

Hello everyone! I’ve been thinking about blogging for a while but haven’t had the time. I’m a student at the university of Leeds and I’ve just finished my 3rd year in medical engineering – I have a degree – when did that happen? I’m going to blog about makeup, fashion, photography and then just random aspects of my life. Hope you enjoy it! Mariam xxx
