Fred Perry Tennis Skirt.

This was the day of the Wimbledon final. So the girls in work got in the spirit and sported our tennis skirts.

I bought tis skirt some time last year, and since I am not a member of a tennis club, sometimes it can be hard to know what to wear with it, but I think I done quite well with this shirt.

Beyonce has this shirt ... I have something in common with Beyonce ...

AirSpace Fitness Classes.





On Monday night I headed to a a freestyle fitness class at Airspace in East Kilbride. 

I was invited along to try out one of their new classes, and I jumped (see what I did there) at the chance.

The fitness classes have just started at Airspace and are guaranteed to burn between 500 to 1000 calories in an hour, amazing!


If you have never been to Airspace before, the classes all run for £13 and then you pay £1.50 for these super sexy special trampoline socks. They help you grip to the tramps for better bounce.

You get to keep the socks though so you can just keep them for next time.


The class began with a warm up to stretch out all the muscles. Bouncing is more strenuous than your average work out so you need a good warm up. We stretched everything from my neck to wrists, better safe than sore.


Once the warm up is done the real fun begins. I didn't get any photos of the work out because you have to try it for yourself. 

The workout involved a series of difference jumps in 30 second to one minuet reps. 

Let me tell you 30 second job on a trampoline is much harder than you think it will be so you know it's working. 

10 minuets on the trampolines is the equivalent to 30 minuets of running. 
FACT. 


I have been out of the gym for a few weeks so doing this workout was a brutal way to get back in the game. 

But I loved it!

The class I attended was a Free Style fitness class with instructor/personal trainer Liam ... Who kicked my ass.


Classes are £13 and run 
Monday To Sunday
9am - 10am
10am - 11am
7pm - 8pm
8pm - 9pm

with a variety of fitness levels.

To book in all you have to do is book in online or call.

All info here

Airspace have also recently launched 
SPACE ACADEMY!
Trampoline Coaching to teach you how to bounce like a pro!
Again lessons are £13 and range from beginner to intermediate.

Thank you so much to the Airspace team and my instructor Liam for having me along! 
I had a blast and I want to leave my job to work at Airspace. 

It's awesome!

Kiehls Glasgow.

I have had a week of fun blog events this week!

On Friday night I was off to Kiehls with the girls for a night of beauty, booze and catch ups!

The event was held in the Kiehls Buchanan Street store in celebration of The Merchant City Festival: Fashion Cultures. 
 



The store was absolutely packed with guests enjoying performances from Pin Up dancers  and whiskey cocktails, it's not a party until there is whiskey.

There was also a photo booth competition to win loads from local brands and stores. Photo booths are always a great idea, I love them!







This is the first event I have been to with Kiehls but they had a really good idea for giving out their goodie bags! It's was basically like a raffle, you got 3 different tickets and you took each ticket to a different area and you got something different from each brand taking part. I loved this, it was like Christmas! But it was great for getting to speak to all the brands one on one, you got to speak to them in Depth about what they were up to and what's happening in the future, rather than just a general speech. I though it was a genius idea! And loads of fun too!  







I hope this won't be my last Kiehls event because it was loads of fun, one of the best events I've been to in a while. Everyone involved should be very proud! 

Well done; Kiehls, Only, Sweaty Betty, Dower and Hall and everyone involved on such a great night!

Topshop Floral Flares.

I really love these trousers, I really hope I can fit them into my autumn wardrobe. There are oranges and browns in them so I'm thinking if I stick with darker colours on top then they wont look to summery. 

If they do then worse case, they can come back out to play next summer.

This skirt will never leave my wardrobe. It is hands down my favorite skirt I have ever owned and I wear it to death.

I feel like this outfit has a Spanish vibe with this off the should ruffle top. 

It was the week before my holiday so I was in complete "I want to be in Spain right now" mode.

Back after a long break! 

I had actually written up 10 days worth of posts on the plane to my holidays but, I have somehow deleted them ... Absolute nightmare.

This must have been worn on one of our mildly sunny days in Glasgow.

This lace dress has been a dream, so wearable with loads and I think in autumn with lots of faux fur, faux leather and floppy hats, it will still do the job!

Topshop Iridescent Skirt.

Its finally pay week and the sequined skirt was the first thing on my hit list!
It is so heavy from all the sequins and it makes a jingle noise when you walk. I just love it! The iridescent sequins give off the most amazing colours. Its such a great party piece but you can dress it up or down as much as you want. I have it here with all white but it would look great with pastels or even black if you want a more rocky vibe.

Stay tuned it will be making A LOT of appearances on the blog!

Topshop Lace Collar Dress.

Boots Topshop

 I know this probably isn't a look you would usually do, lace white dress with black boots, but the dress has that 60s feel so I thought it would be OK with the boots. 

I really like black and white, I'm a bit of a mono maniac.

Topshop X Blow.

Last week Topshop Personal Shopping hit the road and headed out to the West End of Glasgow to the amazing #Blow salon in Finnieston!

Topshop took over the windows with the latest summer trend style inspo!


The Topshop Personal Shopping #Blow Takeover blogger event was held over the weekend in #Blow.

First up was a Blogger preview event.

The blogger night was held on the Thursday night, all the bloggers headed along to #Blow for a night of catch ups, amazing Gusto canapes, some booze from magners and #Blow's very first braid bar!

The stylists were braiding away our hair in all these amazing braids, there were hair rings, purple hair extensions, flower crowns! It was so much fun and braiding is going to be huge as we move into festival season.

After everyone had a catch up and had their braids done, Topshop Personal Shopper Alice McColm gave a summer trend talk. Showing us all the amazing summer pieces available at Topshop.

 


 


 
 

On the Saturday #Blow and the braid bar were open to the public. Again guests enjoyed the #Blow braid bar and drinks from Mangers and Vodquila ... if you haven't seen it before get on Instagram, I didn't think vodka could be any better until I saw this!

There were also Personal Shopping talks throughout the day to get everyone summer ready!

Thank you very much to all the lovely staff at #Blow for having us!
I had a blast and I can't wait to come in for my Pre Benicassim Braids!

This is a very sophisticated look for me. I like the waistecoat belted because it looks a bit more feminine without loosing the structured fit.

 I'm growing my fringe out so as you can see my hair is always up. I'm going to the gym most days too so its just so easy to put it up instead of constantly washing it.

My New Job.


 

Dress Loving Youth
Necklace New Look
Boots Topshop

 

So anyone who has been a reader for a while will know that it has been my goal for a few years now, to become a personal shopper!

I am very, very, VERY! happy to tell you all that I finally achieved that goal!

I've been in the job about 3 weeks now, and its just been non stop, hence why its taken me 3 weeks to finally share the good news!

Here is my little "office" based in Topshop, Glasgow Argyle Street.

Its beautiful isn't it! 
Its actually the same design as the 5th Avenue store, a little piece of NYC glamour in Glasgow.

 

So for anyone who doesn't know what Personal Shopping at Topshop is like, well its a lot of fun!

All you have to do to book an appointment is to contact the PS booking line, Online or By Phone, which you can find here. Or if you are really keen you can come right in to store and the personal shoppers will be happy to book you in there and then.

The information that the shoppers need will be things like; your style likes and dislikes, your sizes, different items you need and for what occasion and any other relevant information we might need to build a brief for you. We then use that brief to pull items in store we think you will love. Easy peasy! All the best bits about shopping without having to lug a huge pile of clothes around the store. 

Throughout the appointment the shoppers will be on hand to give honest style advice and opinions to help you leave feeling a million dollars. We will also do all the running about for you, you need another size, we got it! You'd like more colours, we'll find them! "what would go well with these?" we know just the thing!


The best thing about the service is that it is completely FREE for any Topshop customer. I think a lot of people think that you have to pay to do it, or that there is a minimum spend involved, but nope, its completely free. 

There are appointments for any occasion, some people book appointments for Birthday treats, special occasions like weddings and honeymoons, at the moment it is all about the holiday shop! We have a number of appointments specifically tailored to each type of clients requirements, but every appointment is bespoke to the customer and what they need and want.

 

These first few weeks in the job have been a blast, I've met so many new people and after years of being a sales assistant with 10,000 things to do, I feel like I am finally able to give that above and beyond service, and it makes such a huge difference to get to know your customers on a higher level, real job satisfaction.

I've been non stop for weeks, and to be honest I don't really mind if it doesn't slow down, I'm loving every minuet of it.

Over the summer Topshop Personal Shopping Glasgow is going to be making big waves. We have loads of amazing events planned and we can't wait! 

We recently had our first event with #Blow Finneston in Glasgow and I will be sharing the details in tommorows post, it was a great event and, like I say, there are more coming in the summer.

 See you there!
