Hope you are all having a good week, especially because it’s payday!!!
So… this morning I realised that I was going to be snowed in which has actually gone in my favour because now, I can actually catch up on all of the things I have been too busy to do from the comfort of my bed (thank you snow!)
I wanted to write a post about activewear and the best item’s to buy depending on what you do, whether you practice yoga, go to classes, run, dance or weight-lift. I want to talk about two of my new found favourite activewear brands, Gymshark and LuLu Lemon.
A fellow blogger friend of mine (StyleByMLM) loves the brand Gymshark and has recently got me into loving the brand as well. I don’t know what it is about activewear but I am so fussy when it comes to not being able to physically see items first before buying them but I am so glad I decided to try out the brand after hearing so many good reviews.
I purchased five item’s from the brand and they were all a perfect fit and of a great quality. What I love about Gymshark is that the products are still fashionable whilst being functional at the same time.
I can’t rate the sport bra’s enough, they are so comfortable and have good support and retail at £28. Most of the other styles retail around £28-£30. The second item is the ballet crop top that is £26, I purchased this top in blue and I love it. I also purchased the long sleeved pink top that retails at £30. Usually, I dress in black and white so it was nice to add a bit of colour into my workout clothes. The dry sculpture leggings are currently on sale at £25 and they are so comfortable and great for any workout. (they dry so quickly too after washing them) The bottom right navy leggings are the winter running leggings retailing at £40, they are great for holding in insulation whilst regulating your temperature at the same time. They also have a zip pocket at the back. Generally, Gymshark have activewear to suit most activities. I love mine for doing anything weight orientated or even going to a step or body pump class. I would definitely recommend, plus you can get discount if you are a student through the Student Beans website.
When I was in Australia in October, I discovered the brand Lu Lu Lemon as it is so big over there compared to Glasgow. Me and my friend loved the brand and purchased all sorts of workout clothes. To my amazement, there is a LuLu Lemon store based in Glasgow City Centre (I honestly don’t know how I never came across it before) I was recently at a Kiehl”s Inner Strength event in Glasgow where LuLu Lemon came along to showcase the brands high-waisted leggings that I was gifted and they are an absolute dream! LuLuLemons ranges are perfect for any kind of training or practice from running, lifting, yoga or just generally working out at the gym.
The leggings I had been given at the event were the ‘Align Pant 25’ that you can see below. They are amazing for practicing Yoga in. The leggings are designed to lower distractions and have optimum comfort, they are so lightweight and you don’t feel restricted. The high-rise covers your core and they are perfect for teaming up with a sports bra or crop top. The leggings retail at £88 but it is totally worth it because they will last you such a long time and they are so comfy. The pair I purchased in Perth are also a delight and have been worn A LOT!
