BRAND SPOTLIGHT - SWEATY BETTY


I must admit work out gear isn't anything I've ever thought twice about, cute tops and patterned leggings will get a glance over in the shop but that'll be it. But oh how times have changed! Instead of lusting after the latest £60 dress, I find myself browsing websites for running shorts, sports bras and the best headband for keeping sweat from pouring down my face (lovely image huh?!) and Sweaty Betty is one of those sites.

There's no elegant way to write this (I've tried to type this four times now) but here goes, ok, so I have a fairly decent size chest, 34 e to be exact. So I know how important it is to keep yourself supported when it comes to working out. I've noticed this more than ever now I’m racking in some serious running miles a week and to be honest, my fairly basic one isn't cutting it any more so the Victory Run Bra has caught my eye, with it's padding, mesh panels for breathing and made from quick drying fabric this is the perfect bra for sticky summer days. Back to the image of sweat down my face (sorry!) a decent headband is another item I’ve found myself needing to update. As well as running, I’ve been doing the 30 day shred. Now if you've done this, you'll know how sweaty level 2 is. I mean, it's actually insane. So rocking a decent headband is a necessity, here's the Anna headband available for £10.

Although cardio is crucial to shifting weight effectively and quickly, I want to gain strength and tone up too. Yoga is something I’ve considered for a long time now and it's something I’ve started to seriously look in to. There's plenty of videos on youtube to follow which are brilliant, in fact you can follow a 'how to' youtube video for pretty much anything now! But obviously, I need to get the right equipment first before I start getting myself in to some questionable shapes, starting with the Eco Yoga Mat which comes in 3 colours, I love the purple one!

 I love the selection of work out items available at Sweaty Betty and it really does keep me motivated with my fitness journey! I'll be doing a series about what I'm doing, food, work outs, progress etc. so come back if you're looking for some inspiration!

WHAT I WORE


Top: Topshop Trousers: Forever21 | Shoes: New Look (similar here)  
Watch: Marc Jacobs | BraceleteBay | Rings: eBay 

I picked up these trousers when i was in New York last year but I've only just managed to fit in them, hurrah! They're actually neon green too, but neon is a really difficult colour to photograph so they've come out yellow instead. You can see the true colour a little bit better on Instagram though! I really like this outfit, it'll be nice to wear it in the winter months to add a pop of colour too!

How glorious is this sunshine we've had recently? I was feeling a bit sad about not going on holiday this year, choosing to re do the front garden instead but i mist admit I've managed to enjoy quite a bit of here in England. I'm going to grab a few magazines and spend sometime catching some rays out there this afternoon! I've had a pretty boring week so far, my other half is away up in Scotland for a few days and seeing as though hiking isn't really my thing, i decided to stay here instead. Although, he's been sending me some beautiful scenery photos and with a lake just at the bottom of their cottage i must say i'm pretty jealous! By the time he's back it'll be the longest we've ever been apart since we first met. Don't tell him, but it's only two days and i'm missing him like crazy already. Only 3 days to go... 

I hope you all have a lovely weekend whatever you're up to! I'm off to my parents tomorrow night for a BBQ and some drinks, seeing as though I've been SO good recently i'm looking forward to a cheeky vodka or 7!

Nike Air Pegasus + 30 Running Shoes


Nike Air Pegasus + 30 Running Shoes - £62.99 @ thehut.com

A few years ago i bought some cheapy trainers for the odd (and i mean odd) bit of exercise i did. Not really thinking about how important having a good pair of trainers really were. I dabbled with a bit of running back at the start of the year but soon gave up. But when my fella bought some Nike Flyknit Lunar 2s,  i was pretty jealous and i wanted to get a pair for myself. Obviously there wasn't any point as i wasn't running so i gave up that idea. It was only when one morning i woke up and thought i really need to sort my life out, get healthy and in shape that i decided to finally invest in a decent pair of trainers. With the help of my runner other half, we did a lot of research for the best type of trainers for me and decided on the Nike Air Pegasus + 30 Running Shoes, i got these from The Hut. The mesh on the supper side adds support and ventilation and the cushion foam provides soft, springy and resistant cushioning. Making these bad boys ridiculously light and incredibly comfortable. These have made such a big difference to my fitness journey, i'm racking in some serious mileage in them and haven't had a single issue with them at all. They keep my feet supported and i honestly couldn't be happier, i love them a lot and highly recommend them! I've got a new series coming up about my heath and fitness journey so i'll do more about my exercise etc in the next couple of weeks so you'll probably be hearing about these a lot more on here! Ahhhh how did i ever live without them?!
