Basis Peak Fitness & Sleep Tracker // REVIEW // Who wants to get active?

fitness trackers

I'm really excited to be posting this Basis Peak Fitness and Sleep Tracker* review after many friends have quizzed me on how good it is. Lots of people are looking for something to keep them up to date with how active they are on a daily basis, and the demand of these devices doing more is rising. However many don't want something that gives a convoluted way of telling you something, that can actually be explained very simply and easily presented.

I was sent the Basis Peak to review and over the past month I've put it through its paces. I don't exactly sit still (or so I thought but we'll go into that shortly) and I don't stick to one activity so how would this help me? Let's talk about what it actually does first...

Hair care for swimmers

I have been wanting to write about this for sometime. I have really struggled massively to find decent hair care for swimmers! I swim a lot... and particularly now I've just entered myself into the Dambusters Olympic distance triathlon I am going to be swimming much more! So as you can imagine when I get to the point I'm swimming everyday my poor hair is going to really hate me.. it already is starting to and the fact I bleach my hair probably doesn't help matters.

There are the very basic 2-in-1 style shampoos specifically for swimming, but I don't like them because what you gain in time you lose in body with a 2-in-1. With this all in mind I've hunted across the internet and searched the shops to find some good hair care to remove chlorine and look after your locks! Let's swim proof your hair...

A Weekend of Denim // Faux Fur, Denim & Fringing Outfit

Finding a versatile outfit that can merge you from a great daytime look, to an evening getup can be difficult area to master. If you go too far one way you'll look overdone and too far the other and you'll look under dressed.  Luckily when we reach the Autumn/Winter season you've actually got a lot you can work with to create perfect in between looks. I decided to take on the challenge by creating a look purely based around classic denim jeans...
