While I try to limit big shopping sprees these days (I mean how much do we really need?!) once a year I do admit it is nice getting a little something something for Christmas. Things that have a purpose and helps improve my quality of life/fitness/wellbeing. And maybe something that benefits the wardrobe too…
So Santa, forget those tacky tea towels this year round and take note of my ‘must have’ list below. Your welcome,
After we had a little break… yoga is now back in the scene and of course I am looking for the best mat and accessories one can find! Enter the lululemon mat (there really is no other choice) and Reebok Yoga Medium Grip bag. Swoon….
The Yoga Medium Grip Bag has One main compartment with zipped drop pocket, zipped inside pocket, and 1 organiser, wet/shoe compartment isolates high-odour items from the rest of your gear and an easy-carry handles and yoga mat holder system for convenience $59.95 www.rebelsport.com.au
And of course the perfect lululemon yoga outfit to go with it is needed: In The Flow Crop II $109 are light lightweight, breathable, seamless fabric making them a workout staple. They also make the ass look amazing.
105 F Singlet $59 looks (and feels) like silk, plus it takes you from workout to café without the usual shame. And the Energy Bra $59? Well if you don’t already have one in at least 3 colours you are only letting yourself down.
When stepping off the mat into something a little more high impact… protect your lady bumps with this bra. Seriously the best. Under Armour bra $69 found at Rebel Sport
Then throw on this organic chemical free top while you are doing it – sweating never has looked so good!!
