How are you doing with the New Year’s resolutions?
I have to admit that I am struggling to attend the gym as many times I’d like and eating healthy all week. I always have a couple of days where I eat junk food (crisps, drinks, nibbles…). I will improve on this. ☺
Have you heard about Birchbox?
Birchbox is a monthly subscription service that sends its subscribers a box of five carefully selected samples of makeup, or other beauty related products.
For the January box, Birchbox have partnered with health and wellbeing expert Women’s Health magazine to ‘Hit Refresh’ and to celebrate this union they hosted a great workout with Lee at The Workshop Gym, inside the fabulous Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge.
The workout with Lee was mat based, using our body weight and the resistance bands that were in our Birchbox boxes.
We did different exercises like squats, planks, Pilates movements and the band made everything more intense. We closed the session with some yoga poses and a breath technique to help us sleep well).
In my box I found the resistance band we used plus:
- a shining Stila lip glaze
- a workout challenge booklets
- a Philip Kingsley conditioner
- a Caudalie serum
- an Activebod shower gel
- an Embrace Matcha Green Tea
- and a Healgel rescue formula.
