Things I’m loving this week…my gym kit!


It really feels like summer is here and that means holidays and sunshine. It might be making you feel like you need to up your gym game so I thought I would share with you some of my essential items.

I’m obsessed with gym gear. I remember when I first moved back from Sydney every one thought I was mad walking around in it all day.  I find when I’m in my gym clothes I’m much more motivated to be active. It’s a great mentality you get when you’re dressed and feel the part.

It’s not just about the outfit! There are also a few more essentials in my gym kit. I’ll be sharing my favourite natural beauty products – essential after a sweaty session.

Schmidt’s Deodorant – £7
