My Fitness Routine - BodyBoss Fitness Guide Review

I often get questions asking how I stay slim and what exercises to do but truth be told, I am naturally skinny and I just can't put on weight. I'm guessing this is because of good genes and a high metabolic rate. I don't starve myself or anything. I eat proper meals and I don't go on special diet plans. However, that does not mean I don't get skinny fat, which is equally unhealthy. After college, I slacked off and totally did not exercise or work out so I could really feel my muscles turn to fats. Even though I looked the same, I did not feel the same and I missed having my body look more toned and in shape. I don't like working out or running outside because of the weather so I have been on the hunt for a good home workout guide. Moreover, running is not very effective for burning fats and building muscles.

So, it's a good thing that BodyBoss came into my life because it has introduced me to a whole new way of exercising that I can do anywhere I like! No tricky equipment involved, no gym memberships, no subscription fees - just me and my exercise mat.
BodyBoss is a 12 week ultimate fitness program with step-by-step pictorial instructions to fun and challenging high intensity workouts. This is a highly structured program that makes use of your body weight to help sculpt and tone your body. Each workout circuit is never more than 24 minutes long for 3 days a week so it really doesn't take up much time.

The exercise routines are HIIT (high intensity interval training) style so it is super effective - short time, big results. Plus, the structure of the routines are designed such that you unlock the #BossEffect which is the afterburn effect or excess post exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC). This means that the body continues to burn calories for hours, even when you are asleep, just by completing a BodyBoss workout.

Even if you feel like you're not fit enough yet or if you need to start slow, there is a bonus 4 week pre-training program to warm you up and prep your body for the next 12 weeks. This section is completely free and comes as a part of your training program when you make your purchase.

Here are some of the exercises that you can expect from the program:

Butterfly Kicks
 Double Leg Lifts
 Plank Leg Lifts
The workouts will require some extra equipment such as weights and a bench as you progress towards weeks 9-12. You can always substitute these items for water bottles/canned food and a chair if you do not have the required items. And that is why I love BodyBoss - you do not need to purchase expensive equipment because you can easily find replacements and you can do these workouts anywhere.

I'm currently on week 4 of my workout and I can already feel myself getting stronger. I love it when I feel the ache the next day because that means that I am pushing myself and working towards my goal every day. My friends have even told me that they can see a difference in my body - more shaped and toned.

BodyBoss ships worldwide and you can get an online version of the guide book if you decide to view it directly from your computer or mobile devices instead. If you'd like to get a copy, click here to be redirected to their site!

Real vs Fake Adidas Superstar/Stan Smith

I've wanted to do this post for a long time, ever since I started on my crazy collection of Adidas Superstars. I mean, I think I make quite a credible source because at one point, I owned 14 pairs of Superstars and Stan Smiths. I will be migrating my Superstar collection post over to this blog over the coming days so that you can read up on where I got them.

I'm not sure if these shoes are still as popular and wanted now because I am sort of out of the loop but if you are looking to get yourself a pair of Superstars or Stan Smiths, these are a few pointers to look out for in identifying if what you are buying is real or fake. Take note that these features are mostly applicable to recent releases only. Old models and Superstar 80s are slightly different. Then again, old models are not sold in stores anymore so if you find brand new pairs elsewhere, you should be cautious. 

I owned a a few pairs of fake Superstars before I purchased my first original pair from the Adidas website. …

ALL ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Swatches on Asian Skin + Review

Recently, I dug into my collection of ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks and swatched all the available shades on their website. I'm missing 5 from the website and over here, I have 31. The rest have been swatched in other collection videos/posts.

Midi (Pale Dusty Pink) Against my skin tone, this is like a pastel pink. The color remains quite close to that of the tube but the formula is slightly thick and it does settle in my lip lines and feel dry. Not exactly a color I would pull off often but I can see it working with a colorful eye look or a smokey eye.

Bianca (Soft Mauve) Love this shade and it remains quite true to the tube but it is so drying and crumbly on the lips. It accentuates my lip lines and it cracks when I smile. One of the worse formulas in this bunch, especially considering that it is a nude and most companies do not mess these sort of colors.

Clueless (Dusty Mauve) This is a really cute shade. It pulls off pinker on me than in the tube and although ColourPop d…

diy: hair bows

From the cloth I bought recently at Daiso, and with the major diy mood I was in, I decided to make a bunch of hair bows to wear when school reopens. My tutorial has been inspired and sourced through many inspirations on pinterest.  Start off with a rectangular or square piece of fabric. Squares will result in bows like the blue floral one above while rectangles will be like this bow in the tutorial. Mine measured about 24cm by 12cm. For my blue floral one, i used a 15cm by 15 cm square. Fold your fabric in half, with the insides facing out and straight stitch as highlighted. Leave a gap at the edge because you will be inverting the fabric after you're done sewing. This gap should also be of reasonable size, not to small or you will have trouble inverting the cloth. Once you are done, invert the fabric and  straighten it out. You can sew up the gap at this point if it bothers you. Using a pin or a needle, make some pleats with the fabric and pin through to get the bow shape. Once yo…
