Want to win some paleo goodies?

I’m giving away a loaf of paleo bread or a bag of paleo cookies to two people! Now is a great time for you to take part if you’ve always wanted to try the bread or cookies but are not sure if you’ll like it. Or if you’re a regular customer, you can get your next loaf for free! This is the first contest I’m sponsoring so I’m very excited. The winner also gets a one clothing item from local online yoga retailer www.omgoing.com, which stocks amazing brands like Teeki and Liquidoactive.

It’s very easy to take part in this contest.

1. First, you need to have Instagram. Go download the app on your phone if you haven’t! It’s fun and you can ‘follow’ people to see what they are up to!

2. Next take a photo of yourself wearing your gym wear outside of the studio. The idea is that we need not confine exercise clothes to the gym and that there are creative ways to make them look good for outside wear as well.

3. Post this photo with the hashtag #coloursplashsg and tag the four sponsors @paleorina @omgoing @yogaseeds and @trinityark. The other sponsors are also giving away goodies, including free yoga lessons.

3. This contest will run for two weeks from now until 23 July 2014. Winners will be announced on my Instagram wall.

Here are some sample photographs. Let’s create some colour splashes around Singapore!

Looking good while working out

This blog’s tagline is “Health, fitness and vanity.” There is quite a lot of talk on health and fitness but I count just two posts on vanity – one about how I have too many workout clothes and the other on the how endurance athletes have quite attractive body types to me. Does this mean I’m not as vain as I thought I was? :)

Today I’m going to talk about something quite bimbiotic – which is how to look good while working out. As you can tell, this post is targeted toward the female population because I have this impression that guys don’t really have the same hangups as we do about looking pretty while sweating!

My three tips to looking good while working out are:

  1. Put on makeup that doesn’t look like makeup
  2. Wear flattering clothes
  3. Prettify your hair

Put on makeup that doesn’t look like makeup

Ideally and practically speaking, you wouldn’t be wearing any makeup at all when you’re exercising. Your pores should be allowed to breathe and it’s nice not to get powder all over your towel when you’re wiping down. But unless you have perfect skin, you’re not going to look very pretty exercising bare faced. That doesn’t mean that you start caking on foundation and three layers of mascara like Kim Kardashian at the gym.
