FITNESS HAUL | Rebecca Sophie

Hi All ๐Ÿ™‚ Hereโ€™s a glimpse into the new fitness clothes Iโ€™ve been buying recently to keep up with my weekly boxfit classes and occasional yoga sessions (full video down below).

I stopped sports for a while because I was pretty overwhelmed at work and found it really difficult to pick it up again. Luckily my local community centre started boxfit classes once a week and it was a great group of women coming together to motivate each other.

I also finally joined the gym which I go to every Sunday. I mostly use the elliptical just to get some energy out but am trying to be a bit more broad with the machines I use etc.

Finally, I’ve been finding yoga particularly helpful since I started box fit. It not only helps unwind but I feel like I need to do it regularly now, even just a half hour session, to stretch out my shoulders and legs which sometimes feel super stiff after boxfit!

Let me know what you think of my new purchases and if you recommend any other activity that I haven’t mentioned – always up for ย a new challenge!

6 Autumn Beauty Essentials

Unsurprisingly, my birthday season is in my opinion one of the best times of year. What more could you ask for than pumpkin flavoured everything, orange leaves all over the ground and new hats and scarves! This does also mean that my skin gets very dry, very quickly. With dots of eczema here and there, I also have to be pretty careful with what I use, so I’ve gathered up my favourites so that hopefully you find a couple new favourites too!

  • La Roche-Posay Ultra Fine Scrub
    • One to use sparingly, this lovely little tubย of scrub is great for sensitive skin. Most scrubs are quite harsh on my skin but this one is just soft enough that I feel like my face has been thoroughly cleansed but I haven’t scratched off an entire layer of skin…

  • Neal’s Yard Almond Oil
    • Now i know I’ve mentioned this one a few times on this blog already but it’s only because this is my skin saviour year on year. It’s the only thing that can manage my eczema and goes on perfectly after something like the scrub above.

  • Lush BIG Shampoo
    • A must have if you’re a fan of scented shampoos. I switch between this and more moisturising shampoos as I find this slightly dries out my hair (not always a bad thing) but the texture is so nice, with salt flakes that foam up. I also cannot begin to explain how good this smells – and you can really smell it even after having dried your hair, and the day after. No joke. I love this.

  • Clarinsย Moisture Rich Body Lotion
    • I got this as a gift from my aunt and didn’t use it for a while as I was getting through a big tub of Neutrogena that I was determined to finish up. I now wish I had switched to this ages ago. Although on the pricier side, this moisturiser is thick but not too thick, smells good but not too strong, sinks into the skin but not too much… You get the idea.

  • OGX Argan Oil shampoo
    • Like I was saying with the Lush shampoo, this is what I use when I feel my hair needs that extra little bit of love. I notice stronger and softer hair right after washing and I feel this really gives my hair the refresh that it needs when the weather keeps changing so much.

  • Origins Drink Up mask
    • Although I’m always tempted by that gorgeous gold Origins mask that peels off, I can’t help but reach for this one every time. After being sick for a few days recently I was completely dehydrated and overnight my skin dried out. Using this once before the shower and following it with a thin coat of my trusty E45 – good as gold.

Let me know what your top autumn picks are and please do check out my first autumn vlog below ๐Ÿ™‚

Guy Fawkes in Sussex! [Vlog]

As you probably know, I’ve been trying to get more creative recently (mid-year resolution). Having already worked on my sketching and gardening, this month I decided to pick up my dad’s camera and make little videos/vlogs of recent weekend trips.

Hopefully you’ve already seen last week’s Brighton vlog (click here if you haven’t) but this weekend my family and I joined up at my grandmother’s house in Sussex to visit the Littlehampton bonefire and parade along the beach! An amazing bonfire too… Hope you enjoy!

Terre ร  Terre, Brighton | Restaurant Review

During our recent day trip to Brighton, I was very excited to head back to my favourite vegetarian restaurant, Terre ร  Terre.ย ย Although quite pricey for Brighton standards, I have great memories of coming here with friends during uni and having the sharing platter as an entire meal – both because that was all we could afford and because it was plenty of food!

It’s a bit of a shame that they’re renovating the outside as I completely walked past the restaurant twice without spotting it, but once we finally walked in, I was immediately making Christmas lists from their wall of local honeys, oils and jams.

In order to not break tradition, we started with the sharing plate of baba ganoush, rice balls, fried tofu, kale, polenta fries… The list goes on. It was absolutely amazing but a rookie’s mistake as we were both completely full after this alone.

This was swiftly followed by a main of gluten free Thai rice balls on a peanut and kohl rabi salad which I still managed to finish somehow. Boyfriend on the other hand, went for the battered halloumi which was not amazing. It was nice how they made it look like fish & chips but it was very heavy and quite plain, especially compared to the dish that I ordered.

Overall, the meal as a whole did not disappoint. I wouldn’t recommend going for the battered halloumi but everything we saw on other tables looked amazing too. Friendly staff, organic beers, delicious wine, delicious food… We’ll be back soon ๐Ÿ™‚
