*Quote of The Moment*

“Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down. And trust your instincts … good relationships feel good. They feel right. They don’t hurt. They’re not painful. That’s not just with somebody you want to marry, but it’s with the friends that you choose. It’s with the people you surround yourselves with. Who’s in your life, and do you respect them, and do they respect you?”

Michelle Obama

Such simple words yet they have such significance to my life at the moment.

*Insanity Day 1*

I'm still going strong in this weight loss journey and have invested in 'Insanity' and actually completed the workout. Let me tell you this. THIS WORKOUT IS NO WALK IN THE PARK. 5 minutes into the DVD I was begging for mercy!.. It is guaranteed results in 60 days (check youtube!) and the fitness instructor Shaun T and his fine self definitely keeps you motivated!..  xx

 Lost 8 pounds! My hard work in the Gym is actually paying off! Im so much more motivated than I thought I'd be. Besides the determination and a Gym membership I have found soo much inspiration on  the internet on a lot of Tumblrs also on instagram. Heres a lil taste of what I mean... (Good body gyal!)
This is where my 'Fitblr' obsession all started out 'Getfitwithnic' has one of those bodys that will make you jealous and ashamed at the same time lol.. I love her blog as it has workouts you can complete at home and in the Gym. Check it out

So Inspirational!

For me the It's not just about being 'skinny', but being slim, HEALTHY and strong! Weight loss is not for the weak minded and it requires soo much hard work so if any of you are in the process of losing weight keep at it! It is definitely worth it in the long run xx

*Day Four*

Yeah I know I hardly blog *slaps self* but whatever lol

In the past I have set goals and and targets for myself every now and again. Some of which I accomplish and some of which I don't. One thing I've found is that weight has always been something which I seem to always have issues with.. Throughout my teenage years I went from being average to VERY overweight to slim and then just overweight, which I am now aged 20. 

The thing about me is that I LOVE FOOD!.. I would trade my whole wardrobe for an endless tub of Ben & Jerry's & Chicken Wings if I could. But I cant. Back to the subject! I have had enough of my weight fluctuating and have joined the Gym with my sister and I am on a low-carb, low-sugar, high protein healthy eating plan which has worked for me before. I have also been jogging & I'm doing weight training in my room. 
Today is day four and Im starting to feel much better already!
Im 5'9 and a half and weigh 182lbs. My goal for summer is to lose 30lbs before I go back to University in October. This can be done. I refuse to ever be this weight again in life. Wish me luck!!

 p.s no weight loss pics yet but this is one of my most recent full body pics taken in december, I've stayed around the same since then.. and lets just say this was a good angle! :P xx

*Listen & Watch*

I freakin love this Video. The Artist is Rachel Kerr, I've heard her name but this is the first time I've actually seen!.. I think it's great that she's from the UK with a voice like THAT!

*Random Thought*

People often say that you shouldn't make decisions off one bad experience. But then again there goes a saying along the lines of.. "Fool me once, shame on you. You fool me twice? Then I am the Fool." I feel that certain things are just not for me..

*Get To Know Elle Varner*

If somehow you havent heard of Elle Varner you should immediately punish yourself. This Beautiful young lady has such an amazing and distinct voice, I heard of her a quite some time ago on a remix of Miguel and J Coles 'All I want is you' and fell in love with her voice. Enough of me, I'll let her talent do the talking.

*Hello Folks*

Hello all, although I've continued to abandon Le blog I still check the comments and the emails from a few of you guys just thought I'd say a big thanks!.. I love how complete strangers have such good things to say whether its about me or the blog :)
Around the last time I blogged theres been quite a few things going on in life.. Some bad and some good.. Either way I've realised that life is too short to not live each day to the fullest. I never understood why people would constantly say this but I think until you're in a situation which makes you think about how easily a life can be taken you may not understand either.. Sadly, death happens everyday, expectedly and unexpectedly but we have to go on living our lives. I just hope we as people can all live the life we truly want to be living and do it with no regrets =) 

Lots of love.. Mina xxx

*Hold up Wait a Minute*

This will take a few minutes of your time. My friend Wahiba has entered a competition to win a years internship at Elle and would like some support. This is a pretty big deal! As a young person I think it's good to show support to those who work hard for what they want in life.. (us children are the future.. etc etc)
Read through her entry and register your vote! xx

*Happy Halloween?*

I dont think i've ever been trick or treating but years ago and as long far as I can remember for Halloween I'd usually sit in and watch "Are you afraid of the Dark" Marathons on Nickelodeon.. But Halloween 2011 was pretty impressive.. 

Oddly enough his year was the first year I've actually gone out and "Celebrated" Halloween.. I wasn't prepared at all for my University's Vampire themed as I had planned on sleeping that but.. But in the spirit of the night I wore Red Lipstick? lol.. Anyway, they had a stall where a lovely make-up artist was applying fake blood, and all sorts of scary tattoos.. so me being me I had to try something!.. 

Beautiful isnt it!?

I wish I would have taken pictures inside the venue.. A lot of people were soo creative with their costumes!!..  I hope you all had a good Halloween whatever you decided to do! xx

*Uni Life*

I moved into University halls last week and all I can really say Is that it was one of my most 'Different' weeks ever! University is a definitely a learning experience..
When I first got here It began to sink in that Im actually not a baby anymore in any way, shape or form lol. I then went into an internal panic mode as this was like the first time I'd ever been away from home alone!  Oh and I didn't leave my dorm room for a couple of hours!. To pass the time I indulged in a bit of Ice Cream Therapy and took random pictures .. ( So awkward I know)

After coming to terms with the situation I went into my dorm kitchen and to my surprise everyone came after like five mins and began socialising.. it all went uphill from there. Luckily.
As the week went on I was soo happy to find a group of people that I got along well with & who have a similar sense of humour etc... One thing I found fascinating was that you can never really know some one!.. e.g. Meeting some one in the classroom and then seeing how they behave later on at the club.. Its all good though.
Old & new followers I have my own Macbook now so I have no excuse not to be blogging on a regular basis :P xx

*Quote of the Moment*

“I dedicate myself to myself, to my art, my sleep, my dreams, my labors, my suffrances, my loneliness, my unique madness, my endless absorption and hunger - because I cannot dedicate myself to any fellow being.”
— Jack Kerouac

I can relate (forever alone! lol)

*A Night With Beyoncé*

About a two weeks ago I won tickets to see Beyoncé for a special TV for about 800 studio audience viewers.. apparently nearly 1 million people had applied for tickets so I was over the moon.. 
we waited in the cue for a good few hours and it was announced that Beyoncé ordered 200 Pizzas as a Thank you for her waiting fans.. I don't know how far I believe that as I didn't see that many empty boxes.. (maybe they meant 200 slices).. either way she bought us pizza! 
The Show was amaazing especially as it was the first time I'd seen her perform a lot of her new songs live.. It was a complete different setting to a concert though.. a couple of times she had to repeat songs to get perfect whole performances but of course I didn't mind its BEYONCÉ were talking about!.. 
The show is set to air late December on ITV and hopefully I will not be seen in the audience doing any sort of awkward Beyoncé inspired movements lol xx

*Where do I find These?*

*I Like*

Just a few random personality traits that I'm not too fond of or that I admire... I happen to know people that have a mixture of these but.. oh well.. 

I Dislike..

1.     People who judge/assume things about you because of the way you look/ behave
2.     Quitters
3.     Those who want all the luxury with no responsibility
4.     People who let their insecurities take control
5.     Negative people

I Like..

1.     People that follow their heart
2.     People that make plans with you and keep them!
3.     Ambition
4.     People who stay around because of ‘who you are’ and not ‘what you have’
5.     TALKERS!!.. Call me old school or whatever but I’d rather actually speak than Text, Skype, BBM or anything where I can’t tell if you’re really laughing at my jokes!
