Lazy Girls Guide to the Perfect Body | Guest Post ft. Brigitte 

Today we have a very special guest over on Danity Dweeb. Say hello to Brigitte, who is a Cosmetic Skin Care Consultant from highstylife.com. I have never had a guest post on my blog before, however Brigitte was so lovely from the get go and I couldn’t say no! Here goes…

A Lazy Girl’s Guide to the Perfect Body

Yes, yes, it’s true – we want it all. We want our little snacks while we binge-watch our favorite TV series, we want zero time at the gym and we want to wake up with the perfect body every morning. And yes, we know it’s virtually impossible to be a couch potato and still look like a supermodel (or at least a regular one), when we step outside our house in the morning. We’re also painfully aware that couch potatoes and models don’t mix and that effortless perfection is a myth. Yes, we all know that one girl who can eat whatever, whenever and when you ask her how she looks the way she does she just nonchalantly replies ‘oh, I just have the best metabolism, I never seem to put on weight’. We hate that girl too. So, what to do? There is a middle ground of course, you know, minimum input, maximum results, so perhaps you could give that a try? Come on, jump on board, we promise you’ll still have plenty of lying around time left in your day. Let’s go!

Move it, move it!

Don’t be frightened, we’re not going to lure you into going to the gym, we know you dread the word. However, there are certain tiny amounts of effort that in the long run can be truly beneficial. For one, try standing up and simply moving a bit more. Dr John Buckley from the University of Chester states that spending all the time sitting, whether in the car, couch or your office is actually completely unnatural and that three extra hours on your feet would burn up 144 more calories and get rid of 8lb of fat a year.

You have to admit – 8lb by just standing, you can pull that off. Another great trick is to move while you’re on the phone – if you know the conversation is going to be lengthy, step outside and take a walk while you’re talking. Ok, once you’ve taken those baby steps, it’s time to get an actual workout, but don’t worry, these are short exercises you can do from the comfort of your own home – every lazy girl’s dream. So, pick one of these 18 amazing YouTube channels that will teach you how to get a great workout while staying near your beloved couch.

Seek expert help

Of course, low-impact exercise can only do much, that’s why they’re called ‘low impact’ in the first place. If there is a particular area that really bugs you, like that pesky fat around your tummy that just won’t go away on its own or that booty that is everything but bootylicious, consider seeking professional help and get rid of all your self-esteem downers.

Luckily, there is an abundance of amazing non-invasive and non-surgical procedures you can undergo to say good bye and good riddance to all that pesky fat, and fat cavitation is one of them. Treatments like this use low frequency ultrasound that basically dissolves and kills fat from the outside, so there are no punctures or incisions – just immediate results. This is every lazy gal’s Holy Grail.

Minor adjustments

The general rule of thumb is 70% nutrition, 30% exercise. If you pay attention and listen to our low impact + treatment advice, all that’s left for you to do are minor tweaks in your dietary habits. Trust us, a little goes a long way. For instance, say goodbye to midnight snacks, sugary drinks and foods in general. These are just empty calories with no real nutritional value. Avoid processed foods as much as you can and try cooking with fresh ingredients for a change. No, healthy food doesn’t have to be bland and flavorless. There are amazing smoothies that you can make to kick the morning off right. Your blender does all the work and you get all your nutrients, including the much needed protein for a great day. Grill and steam your meat and veggies instead of frying them. It’s simpler and it will definitely save you from scrubbing that oily pan. Knowing you’re a real health neophyte, we have found a perfect list of yes and no foods and drinks, so print it and use it as a cheat sheet until you get the hang of it. Good luck, lazy gal!

P.S. Don’t forget the importance of proper hydration – don’t settle for anything less than 8 glasses a day.

That’s all for today guys. I hope you have enjoyed Brigitte’s post as much as I did! Do you do anything to keep fit? I’d love to hear! Tweet me or let me know in the comments below.

First things first, I’d like to wish you all a very happy new year! I hope you have enjoyed the holidays profusely my dears, because I definitely have.

I can’t really believe I’m writing this post already, the year has gone so quick. I just thought I’d share my 5 most popular posts of 2016. All together through out the year Dainty Dweeb has had 3,307 views, 1,304 visitors, 280 likes and 160 comments. Wow! A lot more than I thought, considering my blog is just a hobby it’s more than I could have imagined.

Inspirations for a Lifestyle Post

img_0503

When I wrote this post, little did I know it would become my most popular post of 2016, with 155 views and 100 likes. It just goes to show people prefer to read posts that you enjoy to write because I thoroughly enjoyed writing this. It was so much fun thinking of different things that can help inspire others to write a lifestyle post.

Taking part in tag’s is always fun, you end up finding out things about other bloggers you never knew, whether is a personal tag or not they’re always fun to read! I was tagged in this by Hollie from It’s Hollie Ann and although I’ve known Hollie for years, we actually went to school together, I actually learnt something new about her from her post!

The Big Move 

img_3707

I still remember the excitement I had when writing this post. I can’t believe Nathan and I have been in our home for nearly a year already. It only feels like we moved in a couple of months ago! Time flies and all that. I can tell you now, we’re still picking up bits that we need, like the other day I made boiled eggs for dippy soldiers for breakfast the other day and realised we had no egg cups. Yes, I did call it dippy soldiers, I’m still a kid at heart okay?

Primark Haul

Ahhh, a good old Primark haul. Who doesn’t love to see what others pick up in the shops? All though I must say, all of my picks from this haul are stored away in my drawers now, as it’s a little cold to be wearing them at the moment!

Mini Drugstore Haul – The Aftermath

All though I’ve never been much of a beauty blogger – I’m not the best with make up and I’d much rather chuck my hair up in a messy bun in the mornings. I am rather proud of how well this post did! Maybe, it will give me the confidence to toy around with beauty posts a little more this year? Who knows!

Well that’s it, my top five posts of this year. Sitting here cosy in bed, I can’t help but wonder what will be my top 5 posts of 2017?

The Versatile Blogger Award Tag

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve done a tag isn’t it? Whilst in work I got an email to advise that the lovely Hollie, from It’s Hollie Ann has nominated me for this – and I got so excited because I’ve been a little bit stuck in a rut with blogging lately, so it’s a nice little surprise and it has lightened my mood considerably.

The challenge is to share seven facts about myself, and then nominate other bloggers to do the same. It’s a fun way to learn more about each other, lets get started!

  1. My favourite animal is a tiger, and has been for as long as I can remember – if you’ve read my 20 things I want to do in my twenties post, you’ll know that I really want to stoke one.
  2. My favourite meal is good old classic bangers and mash, with lots and lots of gravy
  3. I run my own little business venture on this side of my full time job, in which I sell beauty products – I absolutely love it**
  4. I cannot bare bright colours for the life of me – give me neutral’s over neon’s every day!
  5. If asked what football team I support, I always say Manchester United.Even though I barely follow the football, this is probably because my mumma has supported them since she was little.
  6. I love to keep and create scrap books, I have around 6 or 7, but none of them are actually filled.
  7. Even though I’ve passed my driving test, I despise driving and I think that’s just out of fear and anxiety.

I found this really hard to write this post, because most of my interesting facts are in one of my very first blog posts 50 Random Facts, which seems like a decade ago.

I nominate Sarah, Hannah and Kimberley !

All you need to do to take part is make a list of seven facts about yourself and choose your own nominees who’s facts you’d like to read.

Good luck!

Barry M Nailed It! 

Whenever I’m looking to purchase a new nail varnish I always end up by the Barry M stand in my local drugstore. Since I can remember I have pretty much always used Barry M on my nails, purely because they’re so affordable and such great quality.

Basically, I just thought I’d take the time out to show you my new nail varnishes – because I’m awesome like that! When I went and made the purchase there was a deal on, something like spend over X amount and get a free bronzer. I’m such a bargain hunter so I absolutely loved it! I planned on just picking up one – maybe two but ended up walking out of the shop with 4 and a free bronzer!

img_0345-1img_0349img_0350img_0351
The first is my favourite, Molten Metal in the shade Copper Mine it’s a gorgeous shimmering copper colour which all in all was one that I took the plunge with because although I loved the colour in the bottle I didn’t know whether I’d love it as much on my nails. But let me tell you, I do! After that we have the Sunset – Daylight Curing in Fuchsia Generation, I’m not usually one for bright colours, especially pink but this one is gorgeous. Third we have Nail Paint in the shade Vintage Voilet which is a deep violet which is nice don’t get me wrong but I haven’t fallen head over heels with it like I thought I would. Last but not least is on top with Copper Mine, it’s another Sunset – Daylight Curing in Dark Side of the Shroom, although it’s pretty similar to Vintage Violet I prefer this one because it’s a gorgeous mauve colour – totally me! 

Whats your go to nail varnish at the moment?
