If you follow me on either Instagram or SnapChat (rjhnixon - shameless plug), you'll know that I decided to go on a trip to Copenhagen. When I say that I decided, I mean that I got bored on the Saturday and so I booked flights and a hostel, to leave on Tuesday (the day after my graduation). This level on spontaneity is not something I'm used to, but it was incredibly rewarding as I met fantastic people and saw some stunning places. I also thought it would be the perfect place to get a couple of images for my collaboration with Henry London.

White trainers have become my casual shoe of choice. I can't even help it any more, they simply work with everything, are incredibly comfy (if you get the right pair) and honestly, it's getting a little warm to be wearing Red Wings all the time. Furthermore, a new addition to my wardrobe is a pair of leaf green Carhartt chinos, and, as you'll see in the images, white trainers work perfectly with them. So I couldn't have been happier when Kurt Geiger sent me the Murray trainers in white.

Honestly, I have avoided floral shirts for about four years. I had a realisation that plain clothing was the better route to take, allowing me to build a more versatile style, one that would work throughout seasons, allowing me to look into my wardrobe and always have something to wear. This is not to say that I don't love florals, and this one from the collaboration between Marks & Spencer and Kestin Hare is a new favourite.

Fat, I find, is much like Donald Trump: It springs up rather suddenly, yet it is seemingly impossible to get rid of. This is particularly true of the fat that I created through four years in a relationship and four years at university. Virgin Active and the #MyWorkoutFor campaign come into play at this stage, helping me to create the #MyWorkoutFor Single Life workout and allowing me to realise just how unfit I am these days.

As you may know by now, I have recently come out of a long-term relationship along with finishing my degree. In no way do I regret the relationship and it will always be a massive part of my life, as will uni, but it means that I am now "back on the market" yet retaining a great mix between relationship and student weight.
I'm not going to claim to be fat, however I would definitely like to trim down a bit and generally feel healthier in myself. Being 23, I know I am still able to eat, drink and enjoy myself without worrying too much about the consequences, but that won't last forever and now is the perfect time to get into good habits. Luckily for me, this has fallen at the perfect time for a campaign with Virgin Active, which is where you, my lovely readers, come into play...
On Saturday 4 th June, I will be hosting my specially designed #MyWorkoutFor Single Life class at the Virgin Active Aldersgate Club (London). I'm looking for others to come along and support me – single or not! It’s a 45-minute high-intensity workout. So if you're based in London or there at the time, why not join me for a workout with Virgin Active?
All you need to do is tweet them at @VirginActiveUK with #MyWorkoutFor Single Life. I have 3 spaces up for grabs for you and a friend, and you’ll get a pass for the entire day so you can have a well-deserved relax in the spa post-workout. I've been to the Aldersgate Club to plan out the session and it is plush (seriously).
If you're free then give it a shot, I'd love to meet some of you and grab a coffee afterwards (again, that'll be covered). It'll be a good laugh and a brilliant workout.
If you'd like to come, head to Twitter and get a tweet out!
See you in London,
