Fitness Fridays | Introducing: Mini V Nutrition by Vicky Pattison*

Dino's Beauty Diary - Fitness Fridays - Introducing: Mini V Nutrition by Vicky Pattison*

Geordie Shore is my guilty pleasure. I can remember watching it when the show first started back in 2011, and Vicky was immediately my favourite. With her outspoken attitude and determination, she quickly became one of the houses most popular members. Plus, let's admit it. She is absolutely stunning.

I can imagine living in that house becomes draining - being filmed 24/7 and having nights out 6 times a week can take a toll on even the strongest people. Vicky eventually got into shape, loosing the weight she had put on in the course of the show, dropping from a size 16 to a size 6. That itself is an amazing achievement, and Vicky now looks fantastic and in brilliant shape.

So, what exactly is 'Mini V'? 

Mini V is a nutritional range designed by Vicky Pattison, star of the hit MTV shows 'Geordie Shore' and 'Ex On The Beach'. After she shed an impressive four stone and went from a size 16 to a size 6, she felt motivated to design her own nutritional range aimed at women who want to look great, but don't necessarily have time to follow strict and complicated diets and exercise regimes. The range is aimed at women on the go, and includes items such as protein and supplements which are packaged in light, slim and discreet bottles.

'Mini V is all about convenience and lifestyle. I also wanted to create a range that would fit easily in any woman's handbag, as well as look pretty and cute.' - Vicky Pattison.

Recently my fitness has gone downhill with me being ill, so I knew the Mini V range would be ideal for me to get back in shape. In combination with Vicky's '7 Day Slim', I could ease myself back into getting fit without going over the top. 

Since starting in January this year, the Mini V range has grown quickly, with different flavoured protein shakes and supplements ranging from vitamins to collagen. The range is now pretty extensive, and in combination with an exercise regime from Vicky's DVD and a healthy, balanced diet, I'm hoping to make 'Fitness Fridays' a regular series. 

So, what are the products available from Mini V?

 Mini: Shake (Chocolate Silk, Strawberries & Cream, Vanilla)*
RRP: £2.99 each. Also available in bundles.

'It's all about convenience, so I wanted to make a protein shake that was easy to fit in a handbag, instead of carrying around those massive tubs. Just add water or milk and shake! It really is that easy!'

These shakes look super cute, and I'm interested to try the different flavours. Normally I buy my protein in bulk, meaning I usually have a huge bag or tub of it. So these bottles are really more convenient as you don't have to measure the scoops yourself, you literally just add water or milk and it's done! Chocolate is my go-to protein flavour, but I'm loving the sound of Strawberries and Cream. And of course there's Vanilla too - yummy!

Mini:Burn Supplement*
RRP: £24.99. Also available in bundles.

'A high caffeine pre-workout supplement that contains a blend of stimulants, amino acids, herbal extracts, vitamins and minerals to help you maximise your results.'

I'm really excited about trying these supplements out, as I pretty much always need something to give me an extra boost of energy to motivate me to exercise! You even take this on rest days from the gym to keep your energy levels high on a daily basis.

Mini: Collagen Supplement*
RRP: £24.99. Also available in bundles.

'Contains collagen, hyaluronic acid and vitamins C & E.'

I last heard about collagen and its importance at the event I hosted last year, and I was immediately sold. Collagen helps to maintain the elasticity of the skin, and also helps make nails and hair healthier. I feel like my hair is lacking at the moment, so hopefully this will give it a much needed boost!

Mini: Detox Supplement*
RRP: £24.99. Also available in bundles.

'Contains alfalfa, fennel, psyllium, green papaya and digestive enzymes together with a combination of herbs and spices.'

Normally when I see the word 'detox', I tend to panic and stay away. I've heard mixed reviews about detox teas and such, so I'm quite wary! However this product claims to removed unwanted toxins, and help to maintain a healthy digestive system. So far I've not had any horrific side effects, so maybe this is the product for me.

Mini: Supergreens Supplement*
RRP: £19.99. Also available in a bundle.

'Contains a combination of five superfood ingredients: Spirulina, Broccoli, Spinach, Wheatgrass and Barley Grass.'

Now this is definitely the supplement I need in my life. I'm terrible at remembering to eat my greens, so taking one of these once a day is ideal. Plus, as you only take one a day, this pack actually lasts for two months.

Vicky's '7 Day Slim'
RRP: £7.99 (Amazon)

Of course, all these supplements won't be useful if I don't do any exercise! And Vicky's '7 Day Slim' fitness dvd is the perfect choice - rather than pushing myself at the gym and making myself worse, I can start with light exercises in the comfort of my own home.

Overall, the Mini V range looks very impressive. With the sleek white packaging and different colours for each supplement, it would definitely catch my eye if it were in a store. Plus they're small and compact enough to fit in a bag and enjoy on the go! I'm pretty excited to start getting my fitness back on track, and I can't wait to share it all with you all!

Have you tried anything from the Mini V range? Or have you tried a fitness DVD? Let me know in the comments below!
