It’s time to talk about activewear

I am one of those people that love new beginnings, new years and new challenges. I’ve had one of a hell 2018 and I hope you did too, but now it’s time to put on paper everything we’re proud of and everything we’d like to change in 2019. For me personally, I feel I overachieved some of my goals this year, with the exception of one big frustration: I minimised my gym visits, ate more sugar than ever and kind of let my body down.

So for 2019, as cliche as that it may sound, I want to get back on track with my fitness routine. And there’s no better incentive than a brand new working out outfit, right? Well today I’m all about the right outfits and wanted to show you some of my favourite from a website called Simply Beach, they not only specialise in activewear, but also  bikinisswimming costumes and kaftans.

One style that I’m particularly drawn to at the moment is the long sleeve tops/bodies. I mean, how cool do these look? They both can be used as swimwear too, which is brilliant. I always say pick black to go with everything, but then I do like these details on the leggings below.

Let me know which ones are you favourite working out pieces. Have you got any fitness goals for 2019? I’m off now to do some online shopping. And because Simply Beach also offers a wide variety of  bikinisswimming costumes and kaftans, I might as well shop for my upcoming holiday right? Maybe Santa will bring me a beach getaway (you never know!)

Just breathe easy

I always said the best therapy for the soul is travelling. That, and a lovely bath. This time I had plenty of both while visiting Bali, Indonesia. I will soon tell you more about our amazing experience, but firstly I wanted to share with you the first thing I learnt from this island: to unwind. I also wanted to feature my most worn item on this holiday. Island life can’t go without beachwear, right?

I’m wearing this gorgeous Forever Unique kaftan, which goes too well with my drink hihi. I got it from UK Swimwear, an online beachwear brand based in the UK. If you’re planning a holiday abroad, they’ll have everything you need. I love their wide brand portfolio, with different sizes and fits especially for the bust area – which many of us struggle with.

We live in a society where it’s cool to be busy, everything is on your phone at all times. There’s no time to relax or just let things go. There’s always something happening, someone calling, texting, emailing, stressing. And I just feel it’s harder and harder to detach from all this madness. Mainly because of this silly mobile phone. A different continent, and a hotel with this gorgeous view were just what I needed to let go of everything and just relax. I started writing in my journal again, I discovered some new things about me and I came back full of energy, ambition and some new goals. That’s what travelling does to me, that’s why I love it so much.
