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.

Hotty hot workout

IMG_3361IMG_3359  IMG_3365

Hi everyone!

Hope you are well and have had an amazing weekend so far. Here in Spain the weather has been absolutely amazing. We have just been lounging about on the beach, fallen asleep there once or twice throughout the day on our sunbeds and had delicious food. It’s been so nice to lazy about but on Friday I was desperate to workout. I’m so used to getting my daily exercise boost that it feels weird not doing anything. So I went to the gym with Jamie’s mum here in Javea. I really like trying out new gyms and Sparta, as it’s called, was such a great little place where everyone knew everyone. I love places like that.

I’m glad we went quite early in the morning because places here don’t stay cool for very long when the sun comes out. Sparta’s main weights area is also outside and sheltered by a marquee, so it’s safe to say it was quite a sweaty gym session. I love gyms that don’t have the latest blingy equipment, they have the basic things and that’s all you really need, that’s what Sparta is like. Jamie’s mum and I had a great time and I left with sweat pouring down, it felt like I’d had a shower pretty much.

When I was over working in the Edinburgh store last week I also got some new gear for Spain (I couldn’t resist). Plus I don’t really have workout clothes for the heat anymore. I was so excited to wear my new stuff for the first time at Sparta. I absolutely love the top (although I would’ve been better with a top that didn’t have a built-in bra, I had to fold it up towards the end because I was too warm! I didn’t think that one through. The hotty hot shorts were amazing, light and nice and stretchy for squats. I’ve wanting to buy the dottee tribe print (the print on the shorts) for ages in some form, it ended up being shorts. I’ve got some more new gear that I’ll show at a later point. Anyway, enough of my new workout clothes.

Today is actually my birthday!! I’m now 24! I’m up nice and early because we’re starting my day off with yoga on the beach. I’m so excited to go to Fran’s class again, I can’t think of a better way to start my day. Later on Jamie has got the day planned out, so I don’t really know what we’re doing just that I have to bring beach stuff. I’m excited to see what he’s planned. As long as I’m by the sea and with him I’m happy!

Love my Lulu leggings

I finally got a chance to photograph these gorgeous things. I have been eyeing these leggings for quite a while but unfortunately my student budget doesn’t quite allow me to splurge on a 90 pound pair of leggings. I do understand the price. Lululemon manages to make clothes that when you’re wearing them, they feel like they’re worth every single pence! They fit amazingly, look amazing and feel amazing.

Luckily Lululemon has fantastic sales once in a while and in the last one there my leggings were for about half price in my size! I had to try them on and once they were on, I knew I would never want to take them off again. These are the comfiest workout leggings I’ve ever worn and they’ve actually ruined my other pairs because they are nowhere near as comfortable… They fit like a second skin and it doesn’t matter whether you’re wearing them for a relaxing yoga session or while you’re having an intense leg day at the gym, these are what you need. They don’t move anywhere.

I love the pockets on the thighs, and on the back. It means you always have a spot to put your phone during your workout. These leggings have just left me wanting more Lululemon leggings. I’m completely sold!

Birthday presents!

So one of Jamie’s birthday presents for me, as I mentioned was new workout clothes. There are a couple of brands I really love and one is Lorna Jane. Unfortunately House of Fraser has been all out of my size for a while but finally they had a top in that I really liked and in my size! So we ordered it for me 🙂 I was so excited to get my hands on it. The back is amazing but forgot to take a photo of it haha. I’ll get one soon!

Lululemon has recently opened a showroom in Glasgow and I’m loving their clothes! I visited the showroom a while ago and wanted everything. I’ve been needing a new pair of shorts for quite sometime so I decided the second item for my present would be these amazing shorts! I absolutely love the pattern and the fact that they pockets on the side (perfect for putting my phone in during my workout). They also sit nice and tight so they they don’t move about as much when you are working out, which is a huge bonus. Jamie had to force me out almost after we’d paid because I kept finding new things I wanted to try on…

As you can seem I went for a bit of a blue theme. I don’t have any workout clothes in blue and I thought it was time to add some blue to my workout wardrobe.

I have one item left to choose for my birthday and I’m feeling very indecisive 😛 We’ll see what it will be, Lorna Jane or Lululemon? I can’t make up my mind, love all their clothes.
