Working with Johno MacCarthy was a dream. One of the most down-to-earth people that I’ve ever met and an amazing photographer at that. If you haven’t seen his work previously, then be prepared to start spotting it everywhere, as this guy has some serious talent and drive (the best combo).
We teamed up on a late summer weekend and shot away around the picturesque streets of Notting Hill. Here’s what we created…
Best known for their super cute underwear and swimwear collections, Tezenis are out to let the world know about their activewear range. I headed to the Oxford Street store along with a bunch of other fitness blogger babes to find out just what Tezenis have to offer.
Treated to our very own kit, we could experience the collection first hand. Although most of the girls opted for the black matching outfits with floral detail (that were amazingly transitional- think gym to brunch- and fitted like a dream), I chose to go with the Piping Basic Gym Legging in Grey and Pink with the matching Cup Detail Gym Top shown below.
Once we all looked the part, we were ready to work up a sweat with 4fitnesssake‘s Chiara Pellegrino, who by the way, is an absolute hun! The workout used bodyweight and resistance band exercises in a dance-like manner to get our full body aching and toning. We kicked, dipped and jumped our way to the end, finishing with a mini routine combining all of the exercises that we had carried out. Even though I’m not the most natural dancer, it was definitely fun to exercise to the beat and learning the routines seemed to take my mind off of the actual exercise. Bingo!
Of course there was a photographer at hand, Domenic Pendino to be precise, to capture the entire event. See some of Dom’s pictures below…
All in all, the event was lovely. Such a nice way to bring together girls with a real interest in fitness and health. The Tezenis activewear collection is ideal for anybody who wants to feel great when working out without having to spend a bomb on clothing. It’s feminine, flattering and there’s a variety of mix and match styles to choose from. Check it out for yourself right here or pop into store to see the collection in person!
This week I headed to the streets of Shoreditch, London, with my good friend, photographer and New Yorker, Dave Gershman.
Dave has recently been on a whirlwind tour of the world through his travel journalism (what can’t this guy do?!) and has stopped off in London as his final destination before travelling back to the Big Apple.
As a street photographer, Dave naturally wants to take pictures everywhere and anywhere- regardless of people’s willingness to have their photo taken- so it can definitely be interested when exploring the city with him. Likewise, it was also the perfect opportunity to get some snaps of my own, so that’s exactly what we did.
Taking over one cobbled Shoreditch backstreet, we turned the pavement into catwalk and began shooting away. Of course, being a street life photographer you have to be quick, so within a few clicks from Dave and an array of dramatic poses and struts from myself, we had all the content we needed. Here are the results, featuring my sandstone New Balance accessories…
Classic backpack in sandstone available for £25 from June at ASOS. 6-Panel curved brim hat in sandstone available for £15 from June at ASOS. Check Dave out on Instagram @DaveGershman.
It’s a brand new week, meaning that we have a whole seven days to make the most of it. Mine is looking to be rather hectic, so I’ll need all the energy that I can to tackle it with the usual Tigeress style.
Here’s some rather bright fitness inspo from my shoot with photographer Tom Joy. Let’s smash this week!
