A Motivational Push & Sportswear Haul

UO3 UO4 UO7 UO1 UO5 UO8 UO2UO6 UO10 UO9UO11Stop the friggin press! Yesterday it was still light at 5pm…that means it’s basically Summer now right? OK maybe not quite but I feel it in my bones, it’s definitely close. The instant wave of motivation that swept over me following this realisation was a shock, I necked my pre-workout coffee and practically legged it to the gym.

It’s so hard to keep your motivation up once the post Christmas push starts to dwindle and my first thought, naturally, was


“I need new gym clothes!”


Now it might not be your first thought when buying gym clothes, but when I heard Urban Outfitters had launched their new sportswear collection online, I just knew it would be good! For me It’s always been that store you go to in search of something a bit different. But Whilst still catering for my love of Nike they have introduced some of the best from from brands such as Stella Sport to exclusive Without Walls (check the video for the most Beautiful sports bra ever from their current collection) and all the clothes and equipment you’d need to either get started or give yourself a kick up the back side (in the most motivational way possible of course).

My favourite item that I picked up was the new Invisibobble which you can see me putting to the test in the images above. Its saved me from my post gym kinky hair woes so much so that I now don’t leave the house without one on my wrist and I certainly don’t set foot in the gym without one.

With lighter evenings upon us and Spring in sight it’s time to up the game to get Summer body ready. Make sure you let me know what your favourite bits were from the haul and if you will be purchasing anything new, please share the wealth!

    It was getting light when I left my house for the gym this morning and I was CONVINCED that I must be really late! Can’t wait for it to be light enough for a run in the daylight after work. Also the invisibobble is such a great idea, will definitely be investing, I have curly hair so always have to wash it after the gym, this could solve everything!!

    I think this has to be my favourite video so far! I want EVERYTHING especially that first sports bra it’s just so classic and chic and still very pretty. I’m amazed at how good I’ve been this year health and fitness wise except this week, when I am supposed to be especially good as I’m working the beauty show at the weekend and want to feel great obviously, I’ve been eating far too much bread (wholemeal though so not all bad……). So this has definitely given me that kick up the bum for a last minute “detox (???) attempt and then when payday arrives I think I might just have to treat myself because lord knows I need some new workout gear!

    Thanks Lydia xoxo
