week and another week of challenges! That’s right if you have been
following me I have been taking part in the Chrysler YpsilonVice Vs Virtue. It is all about encouraging women to
take a step out of their comfort zone by trying something they wouldn’t
usually! Each day an exciting new Dare to be Different challenge
emerges and I have been having a go…
Since the launch on Monday 12th May the Vice Vs Virtue campaign has seen
a number of exciting challenges to try out. Since taking part I have been
taking part in a variety challenges which have been posted on the Stylist website.
day there is a Chrysler Vice or Virtue option for you to challenge yourself
with, plus they have some exciting prizes for you to win just by voting which
you would do. Last week I tried all sorts out but mainly stuck to the
Vices rather than the Virtues, but as in my last post I promised this week I
would at least try something I would never normally do…
After my adventures of horse riding last Sunday the new Vices vs Virtues began
to appear on Stylist Magazine’s website. I decided that Monday
wasn’t for me (bunker down with a pizza or take a scenic route to work) due to
my vigorous fitness training plan towards my triathlon, however Tuesday seemed
a good challenge to embrace.
to bare and go to work make-up free
to bare and go on a date make-up free
I decided to go to work make up free. I would of gone with Vice but my other
half sees me make up free quite a bit so it isn’t exactly new! One thing
I will say about going make up free to work/for the day is that my skin felt so
thankful for it. It made me realise perhaps I don’t need to wear so much
on a daily basis?
Wednesday arrived with its latest challenge…
in the shower
on the street
I really had to think about this and decided I wasn’t brave enough to sing in
public, I get really embarrassed about my singing so decided to have a good old
sing in the shower. I took the radio in with me and went for it. I
forgot how much I loved to sing in the shower!
Thursday I thought enough was enough… I needed to try a Vice and would pick
whatever it was for the day.
back to basics and learn to bake bread
experience a taste of the exotic and take a pole dancing lesson
only had I decided to try something totally new I was having to go on my own as
none of my friends could come. This was a big challenge and I was
finished a long day at work and found my local pole dancing class at Elegance.
After seeing all the other girls zip around the poles looking so effortless
made me all the more nervous… could I do that? After an hour I was
really giving it a go and my goodness I loved it!
won’t lie to the next couple of days afterwards I was aching making my swim
training really hard work! Oh and you may have seen bruising images on
instagram… well that was from the pole! Ouch!
I bruise like a peach!
After bruising like a peach and having to train lots whilst aching I was very
ready for Saturday’s Vice or Virtue challenge
There you have my summary of week two and all it’s exciting challenges.
This week is the final week of the Vice Vs Virtue Challenges and I’m
very ready to try some new Vices and Virtues out, so make sure you’re following
me on twitter and Instagram!
