Wedding Series: Health, Body & Beauty

May 17, 2014

Leading up to the wedding – I have been a very lucky girl and with some more free time on my hands, I’ve had proper time to focus on my body and health! Obviously, I really enjoy fitness and healthy food anyways – so I’ve just been stepping up my regular routine – and with the beauty and well-being; well every girl deserves a bit of R&R and pamper time before the big day right?


Getting de-stressed at Elemis with Deep Tissue massages – the gorgeous salon is located in a beautiful mews in Central London (Mayfair) salon – it’s such a tranquil haven from the hustle and bustle of the city! Love my time here.

A 3-day Juice Detox with Imbibery London – a full blog review coming soon.


As always – sticking to a clean and lean diet (semi-vegan – I love my fish!). If you’re interested – make sure you follow my Instagram account (anneliwillis) – where I post a lot about my food and diet (amongst other things).



I love Pilates! I recently attended a Hot Pilates class (which was a first for me) at Yotopia together with SimplyHealth – and it was amazing! I would definitely recommend it if you love Pilates and don’t mind the heat that much; although I found the heat relatively bearable as I am used to Bikram Yoga, which is a lot hotter.


Other classes I regularly do at my local gym, are: Body Pump, Circuits, Pilates, Spinning & Reformer Pilates. I like to mix up my strength/weights with high intensity cardio, as well as relaxing and toning Pilates/Yoga classes; on a good week I go to the gym 5-6 times (which is notably an intensified amount leading up to wedding).


YUP – I’ve went to the infamous Barry’s Bootcamp (and didn’t pass out!). Kind of loved it actually.


I am such a fitness bunny – my lovely bridesmaids even incorporated it into my hen do in Lisbon a few weeks back!



Popping into Liberty’s (my favourite London department store) for Bobbi Brown‘s amazing wedding make-up trials (did you know they offer this as a complimentary service?). I had the amazing Michelle and definitely feel more prepared for the big day!


This is the selection Michelle customised for my wedding day – more pictures about the specific product selections and the final result from the big day coming soon!


Getting my monthly beauty fix with Birchox


Going back to my roots at Sassoon Salons – a full review about my time here to follow soon!

Getting my nails done – they’re nail extensions done at a local salon called Serendipity Nails; the nails look great (service, not so much I am afraid). Other than that, I’m happy with natural and nude colour!


And now – the final countdown! Hope you’re enjoying my wedding series – and as read above, more in-depth reviews to come after the wedding!
