Happy weekend, everyone! This week I’ve teamed up with Sian from lovesian TV to talk all things health and beauty. We’ll be chatting about gym do’s and don’ts, our number one way to keep healthy and lots of other health tips and tricks.
Sian is my favourite beauty blogger and best friend, so it only seemed right to collaborate (and about time too)! See what you think of our tips by clicking right here and don’t forget to get in touch for anything else that you might want to hear about.
Oh and by the way, there’s another vid coming from Sian and myself to my own YouTube channel on Monday with something a little bit different so watch out for that 😉
Have a good one, guys xx
There are several types of people who go to the gym. There’s the hunky men who spend more time in the mirror than actually working up a sweat, the treadmill selfie queens (please fall off mid photo, we beg!), the ones who coolly walk in wearing all the right gear, only to head straight to the sauna and then there’s the rest that quite frankly just want to have a damn good work out! I’d like to hope that I’m included in the latter.
However, at the end of the day, no matter what kind of gym-goer you are, it’s all about image whether we like it or not. You either go to make an impression to other people or you go to make yourself look and feel great. Gym-going has become so much of a trend that so has the clothing that we wear to work out. I for one, am happy about this. I love active wear both in and out of the gym, so thank god there’s becoming a little more variation on the market! But the prices, god the prices…
Activewear is expensive, way too expensive. So I’ve picked the best of budget sports gear that will have you looking ahhhmazing no matter how hard you train!
Forever 21 Heathered Keyhole Sports Bra £8
Forever 21 Foldover Woven Trackpants £13.50
Forever 21 Seamless Capi Sports Bra £6
Forever 21 Space Dye Capris Leggings £12
Adidas Clima Essentials Reversible Bra £22
Adidas Neo Leggings £15
H&M Sports bag £24.99
H&M Sports Bra Medium Support £14.99

H&M Winter Running Tights £34.99
P.S. There’s scientific evidence surrounding gym sass. According to researchers at Northwestern University, clothing influences us mentally as well as physically. Basically, the better you think that you look the harder you’ll work out. So, there’s a nice excuse to get your shop on and with prices this cheap who can resist?! xx
I just HAD to post about Forever 21’s activewear collection! I don’t even really need to say much apart from… amazing, stylish, comfortable, bold, flattering, cute, makes-me-want-to-work-out-everyday. In fact, there just aren’t enough words to describe! But you get the gist. This sports collection is one of the best I’ve seen in a long time. From basic leggings to waterecolour crops, cut out sports bras and printed shorts, there’s something for every fashion conscious sports girl out there.
I recently purchased a beautiful woven back sports bra that makes me want to wear it everywhere- not just in the gym. I’m honestly surprised that I haven’t heard more ladies raving about this collection, which makes me think that it’s not that well known over in the UK? It was something that I just happened to stumble across in-store but then again, I am attracted to anything remotely sporty-stylish!
Get your new sports wardrobe now, in-store or online (there’s a little more choice in-store). Oh and one other word… value! From crops as little as £6 you won’t find activewear this good at this price anywhere else. If you do, please let me know!!
