My Introduction to Ab Exercises

First of all I must just say that I have no training qualifications or anything like that but I just thought that I would share a few of the exercises that I used to help tone the abdominal muscles. When it comes to those areas that we females are unhappiest with I would guess that our mid-section ranks quite highly and with bikini season sneaking up on us again a lot of us are hitting the gym in search of that toned tum.

My Reads ... Be Body Beautiful

Admittedly I'm not much of a bookworm anymore and much prefer magazines or blogs to wind down with at the end of the day or to pass a few minutes at lunch or in the gym. But when I recently saw that Lucy Mecklenburgh of TOWIE fame had released 'Be Body Beautiful' I thought it might be worth picking up.

My Perfect Palette

I recently saw this on Lily Pebbles YouTube channel and thought that it would make a great post as I love my palettes. Narrowing it down to just 8 was quite tricky but here's what I managed to narrow it down to.

My Product Tests - Origins Plantscription

Whilst I have heard of Origins before, I've never used any of their products and never really embraced the brand. As you may know I am trying to be kinder to my skin at the moment and so when I recently found myself without an evening moisturiser I reached for this little sample that I got a while ago in Glossybox...

My Product Test - Clinique Chubby Stick Lip Balm

Sorry, I know I am super late to the party when it comes to this one but I've had this in my collection for ages now and never really bothered to try it out properly. I've never used Clinique makeup before, just their skincare ranges, so I thought I'd give it a go starting with this.

My New Year Teatox with Bootea ... The Results

This is it folks. On Wednesday I finished my 14 day Bootea Teatox and it's time to see if this style of detox really works. For the first 14 days of the year I invested time and money into improving my health and making this year my fittest and strongest yet. Here's what I've been doing and how I've benefitted as a result.

My Boohoo Nightwear Edit

So last night I found myself scrolling through a section on Boohoo I have never stumbled upon before, nightwear. I love having different types of nightwear and loungewear in my collection and try to have something for all moods and occasions. Here are my top picks from the Boohoo range.

My Introduction to LBT

January often see's many people joining a gym for the first time and making a conscious effort to try something new. A new environment can be hard enough without the added fear of not knowing how things work or what to expect, so I thought it might be helpful to share my experiences.

My Date Night at Kashmiri Aroma

Last weekend, despite the teatox diet, I decided to head out into Halifax with my boyfriend for a spot of tea as it was our anniversary. Kashmiri Aroma opened in Halifax last Autumn and as I'd been to the one in Wakefield previously, I was excited to visit their latest venue.

My Sunday Skincare Rountine

There is nothing better that a good skin care routine that you can look forward to each week and I love treating my skin on a Sunday morning. I do change this up from time to time and use different products in Winter & Summer months. Here is my current Sunday Skincare routine.

My Heart Desires - January 2015

Well it's back to business as usual here on Harmony Blaze now with just 4 or 5 posts a week now that, like most, I'm back in the office full time during the week. This month's 'My Heart Desires' is a bit of a bumper edition with a few items that I'm hoping I might get for my birthday next week... Let's get started!

My Favourite ... Powder Cover-Up, Hello Flawless

For years I have searched for the perfect powder coverup to disguise blemishes and shine. This summer I decided to try Benefit's Hello Flawless out on the recommendation of a neighbour and I haven't looked back since.

My Pink! Sports Bra

When Victorias Secret opened in Leeds in 2013, I had to go and see what all the hype was about. I instantly fell in love with the flattering cuts, soft fabric and everyday pieces. But I never expected to fall in love with them for their gym wear.

My New Year Teatox with Bootea

Well this is it. The New Year is here and it's time to repair some of the damage that the festive season has done to your body. To say that I am a little out of shape after the past month of eating, drinking and generally being merry would be an understatement and I thought it would be a good test for a teatox.

My December Favourites

December is a month for a bit of glitz and glamour, if you can't sparkle at Christmas when can you? I'm sure that you will have seen some of these products featured on Harmony Blaze already, or will do over the coming days anyway but here is a quick round up of My December Favourites.

My January

January is my month! Most people will be gearing up for a quiet month after the festive period and maybe even the dryathalon, but not me. January tends to be another busy month for me as it's the month in which I get yet another year older!!!

My New Years Promises

I don't generally make New Years resloutions as such as I don't particularly believe that they work. I always have a laugh in January (and get slightly frustrated) with all the resolutioners invading the gym. However, this year I thought that I would make a few promises to myself...
