Training for NTC with Sporteluxe!!!

This morning I woke up at an unacceptably early time to prep myself for what I knew would be an INTENSE first training session in the lead up to NTC in May. Heard of the NTC? It's the Nike Training Club being held on May 2, an entire day of health and exercise held at Carriageworks, see more info on it the Sporteluxe website here!
You have to register and it does cost money ($180) but if you're a fan of Nike, fitness and wellness then it could be an event that would get you excited and motivated to train hard as it gets closer, and also as the weather cools down here in Sydney to keep up your fitness...

Nike master trainer Greg Sellar gave us a personalised plan in the lead up to the NTC and I'm so excited to start seeing results! So I headed to the Sporteluxe office in Sydney after a quick breakfast of Chia Porridge and changed into my Nike gear!


The two Sporteluxe beauties and I before starting the session: Founder/Creative Director Bianca Cheah and Editorial Director Sarah Ranawake

The session involved some toning, strength and fat loss exercises that left us in sweaty piles on the grass afterwards! Think non-stop lunges, pushups, high kicks, mountain climbers... I feel like a million bucks now, but at the time I thought I was dying! If I don't see results it will definitely be because of my diet and NOT Gregs program haha.

We then stretched it all out and Bee and I took the opportunity to admire our new Nike Free 5.0's. I got the blue watercolour pair and she got these geometric pink and neon yellow. They went so well in the session for the type of exercise we did.

Bee then took me for a delicious and healthy breakfast at Bread & Circus in Alexandria to refuel and have a chat. 


This is the Quinoa with garlic, chilli, shallots, wilted spinach and fried egg. SO delicious and I'm sure it'd be easy to recreate at home! We also both had a green juice and I finished with an iced latte. No sugar guys ;)


Editing some shots while we waited for our food.



Sisters!

 Love our Nike shorts, Bee got these grey and orange ones and mine are green with dark grey and black piping as you can see above! They're super comfy because they're tight bike shorts with a looser short over the top. Nothing to see here when I bend over guys - perfect for the gym!




Bianca has the most amazing Luxe/Sporty style, follow her on instagram here!



Basically sums our relationship up :P


So while I train for this years NTC I will keep you all updated on my progress! Keep checking back :)

Half Up Half Down Hairstyle Appreciation Post!!!

I'm absolutely loving this half up, half down hairstyle lately! Just spritz the roots of your hair with some dry texturising spray, and gather hair from the top half of your head (using just your fingers for a messy look and using a brush for a more polished one), then secure with a hair tie. 

I then wrap some hair around the hair tie and bobby pin the ends under!

Super cute and Kylie Jenner inspired!






Celeb inspo:











Love that it looks cute with long and shorter hair cuts! Experiment by curling, waving or straightening the lengths, using braids up the side... making a bun with the top instead of the ponytail, adding cute hair accessories. Limitless possibilities!

Show me your half up and half down looks on instagram but using the hashtag #ChloeMorello.

Easy Purple Smokey Eye (in 3 Steps!)

   I came up with this sweet purple smokey eye using just THREE Max Factor products, and I think the result is is super stunning! I've fallen head over heels for this Masterpiece Mascara too, you have to see it in action and try it out for yourself, my lashes have never looked better!

Marilyn Monroe once said 'You have to feel attractive to be attractive', so i created this look that is so simple, even those with the most basic makeup skills can feel gorgeous while wearing this look.

Purples look amazing on brown eyes, but also make green and blue eyes pop, my green/grey eyes really stand out!


Loving these fresh purple eyes with my vintage waves - I feel like Kate Winslet with this hair and makeup!


Because the look was inspired by a Marilyn quote, I decided to add a beauty spot/mole, using brow pencil and a liquid liner (it strategically covered a pimple scar too... ha!)

Check out the youtube video below or head to my youtube channel to see the 3 step eye look AND the rest of the makeup:


          

Hope you guys get a chance to try out the look and don't forget that if you share it on social media, use the hashtag #ChloeMorello so I can see it!

Hey everyone,
So excited to share with you my latest video, I often use hair rollers to
bring life, bounce, shape and volume to my rather limp and fine hair.
I just got a new roller system so thought it was the perfect opportunity
to show you how I do it!

Enjoy...


Basically unlike normal hair roller systems this one by Cloud nine
comes with The O Pod, which you drop the special rollers in, the pod
heats the rollers up in FOUR seconds and then you can pop them straight in!
As you see in the video my kit came with a selection of rollers and clips,
as well as some hair spray to use before putting the rollers in!

This is The O Pod...

Although it is an investment, I do this look on my hair really often
so it's a worthwhile one. It's saved me lots of time when doing this look!
I actually have the set in cream, it's $409 (Australian Dollars) but there's
currently a coupon code for 10% off and it's: '
CC90814' - it lasts til end of September!

I also used the Cloud Nine Waving Wand to add more waves to the look:


I didn't have a waving wand so I can't compare this to anything
else I have, but I love it! Like the O, it heats up so quickly, is very
easy to use and it's very gentle on my hair. I love big waves rather
than tight ringlet style curls so this gets lots of use. It comes with a
glove too which makes things easier!

You can get cloud nine from their online store and its:
http://au.cloudninehair.com - they sell LOTS of amazing professional tools!

I hope you liked this post and let me know what you think of the video!
