adidas love

Hi lovelies! It’s the first day of my working week and I’m feeling excited. It was so nice to have a full day off with Jamie just relaxing and strolling about without any places we had to be. I wish we could have more days like that. More about that in a separate post!

I wanted to better show you another recent addition to my wardrobe, my adidas sweatshirt. I just love it so much! You know once in a while you find a piece of clothing you become obsessed with? This top is my obsession at the moment. I felt I needed more colour in my activewear wardrobe and stumbled across this top online. Unfortunately it was sold out everywhere in my size. Then I got to that stage when you want it even more because you can’t have it! Oh the desperation.

Luckily, I’ve got my lovely friend Lauren who’s a buyer and managed to hunt it down. I was so happy and still am that she found it for me. Thank you again lovely! It’s so comfortable, colourful and looks smart. I can’t get enough and wear it all the time! I’m just waiting for this top to be launched in other colours. adidas, you hit the jackpot with this one!

Now time for a day of work. This evening I’m probably going to the gym with Faye for a bit (I’m taking it very easy) and then I’m rollerblading with my colleague Frankie this evening at Rollerstop I think it’s called, it’s a roller disco. She’s writing a blog about for voomfit and asked me to join her. It’ll be really fun to try out. I can’t even remember the last time I rollerbladed.

Have a wonderful day my dear,

M xxx

My essential for a fit life


I absolutely love my new rucksack from lululemon!!

Hi my lovelies! A later post today because I just really wanted to get these photos done and write about my new partner in crime. As you might remember I used to have a black rucksack from lululemon that I bought when I was working for the company. Getting a rucksack that could fit all my gym kit in was a game changer for me. Not only does it mean I can fit everything in one bag instead of several but my back has been saved from a very sore life.

I loved my black rucksack so much but unfortunately it kind of died a couple of months ago and lululemon so kindly took it back and said I could exchange if for a new one and for about two months I was without my massive bag. I had my life in that bag and realised how much I rely on having a good bag to for my life to go around. I don’t have a car to throw everything in so my rucksack is how I get around. As silly as it may sound haha. Gone are the days of cute handbags. They only come out on the weekend! If even then.

After looking for ages for a new bag that would fit the bill (I’ve realised how picky I am when it comes to good bag!), Faye was down in the lululemon Regent Street store in London and sent me pictures of this bag. I had seen it online but didn’t want to order another bag I’d have to return. I trust Faye’s judgment and she gave the bag her seal of approval. I ordered with help from my lululemon girls here in Glasgow and when it arrived I fell in love.

I love the grey colour and the space in it is just amazing. I can fit so much stuff in it which is just perfect!! There’s lots of handy pockets and places to stash stuff away in. It sits super comfy on my back and my life finally feels complete again. I’m pretty much like a turtle with my house on my back. Anyway, I just wanted to show it off a bit better because I think it deserves some attention for making my life round. I don’t know what I would do without it.

New beauties


Rocking my massive spot on my forehead because sometimes you just get spots and there’s nothing you can do about it

How beautiful are these leggings?! I saw them on Stella at Forth Valley Throwdown and knew I needed them in my life. I’ve always been a bit hesitant when it comes to patterns on my legs because it’s the curvier bit on me and I feel like sometimes patterns make me look . I’m not saying that it’s a bad thing, I just don’t feel comfortable with it. I’m also not saying my thighs are fat or anything, it’s just the way my body is.

I have become a bit more experimental recently when it comes to patterns on my leggings (hello amazing mermaid leggings). Maybe my perception of my body has changed or maybe I’ve just found patterns that are a bit more flattering for my body type (in my opinion). Maybe it’s all in my head! I’m not sure but either way, I tried on these white and grey beauties and knew they needed to come home with me.

They are so incredibly comfy and hug your legs just the right way. The 7/8 length is my favourite length, when they finish by the ankle. The mesh helps you when you train to keep cool and the high waist is amazing. They’re slightly a bit too warm to train in at the moment but they are amazing for yoga. I wear them to work. I wouldn’t train in them at Stella’s (we crawl around on the floor a bit too much for these haha) but I have worn them to sessions I’m just lifting weights.

Perhaps not the most practical leggings but I absolutely adore them. I know they have them in some other colours and patterns as well.

Hi!

It’s been super busy with Jamie’s mum visiting and I haven’t really had a chance to update you guys here. Sorry about that! We had such a lovely time with her. On Monday evening we went to 111 by Nico for dinner and yesterday she treated Jamie and I to brunch at Singl-end. We can’t get enough of that place. I love that there’s something for everyone there. I ventured out of comfort zone of always ordering the vegan breakfast and had their roasted veg and beetroot hummus on their Supernova Super Seeded bread with mushroom soup on the side. Yum! It was lovely and how beautiful and colourful is it? We also may have shared their vegan scones. They’re becoming a definite weak spot…

I wanted to give you a little peak of the latest edition to my workout wardrobe, Hit It 7/8 legging from lululemon. Surprise! I had another pair that went bobbly after less than a months use so I went in and got them swapped for these beauties instead. I absolutely love them, they fit like a glove and don’t move a bit when I train. The meshy bits don’t only look good but keeps me cool during sweaty sessions, love it! I’ll take some better photos of them soon.
