Mary Katrantzou x adidas Originals Season 2

You know how you are always nervous when your fave show is about to go into Season 2 because Season 1 was so awesome that you think, how can it be even more awesome! That’s how I felt waiting for the next round of Mary Katrantzou x adidas Originals collab. But my fear was totally unfounded. I am in love of first sight with Mary Katrantzou x adidas Originals Season 2. Inspired by 80’s sportswear and Olympic memorabilia I think it is actually much better than the first line released for the iconic German sportswear brand. I feel it is more true to the adidas originals spirit while it really captures the beauty, essence and tech innovation of Mary Katrantzou’s prints. Sweating has never been so stylish!

Spring Clean Your Activewear

Spring is here! The warmth of the sun gives me freedom to show off the hard work I did in the dark winter months and this means one thing and one thing only – what should I wear? When it comes to fitness and performance wear I totally swear by Stella McCartney for Adidas. I absolutely believe it is worth the price. It fits my body really well, it is extremely comfortable, it is beautiful to look at and a joy to wear. It is designed to keep dry and keep cool and that’s exactly what it does. I don’t want a distracting fitness wear, all I want to do is focus on my workout and not on trying to adjust a twisted top or sliding down leggings. Buying few new active wear items feels like a well deserved treat right? Right! Wouldn’t it be nice to try a new brand and freshen up my wardrobe with new names. It would! When it comes to choosing a new activewear brand I believe in a mixture of dress …

Meat Free Week: 23rd – 29th March

We live in such a consume, consume and consume some more world that we rarely stop and think what impact it has on what surrounds us and on ourselves. That’s why it is great to be reminded as often as possible to give some thought to our actions and this is exactly what Meat Free Week aims to do. Meat Free Week is a global campaign dedicated to raising awareness of how much meat we’re eating and the impact eating too much has on human health, both individually and globally. It also highlights the negative effects over consumption of meat has on the welfare of animals and the environment. Meat Free Week happens every year  in March and this year it starts March 23rd and runs till March 29th. This is not a week that tried to convert you or anyone to being vegetarian, it is most of all to raise awareness and education so that we can make more educated and therefore more responsible choices.  How can you take part in Meat Free Week? …

The InstaPump Fury – The Return of a Classic

Well not really but I have to say that Reebok Classic’s iconic InstaPump Fury has never looked just so cool. It is the collaboration child of #ReebokClassicxSandro  producing an an inaugural capsule collection for SS15, that ‘centers on Reebok Classic’s iconic InstaPump Fury, fusing the distinct but complementary design attitudes of the brands to create two limited edition styles for both men and women.’ The launch took place today at Sandro’s Marylebone store with a private party. When I saw the trainers I thought they looked just as cool as the picture. I have to say they come in small because they are slip-ons so even though the website says to buy a size smaller I had to go for a size up. I am such a big fan of trainers but to see an old classic such as the InstaPump come back is truly exciting. The iconic trainer comes in two classic colours white with blue soles and black with flashes or colour. A pair will set you back £199 and it is available …

Top 10 Workout Trends for 2015

Every year, for the past 9 years, The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) has announced its annual fitness trend forecast based on survey responses from thousands of fitness professionals. Here is how they see 2015 when it comes to the most popular workouts: Body weight training makes its debut in the spotlight at the very top, taking over from last year’s newbie HIIT.  Its popularity comes mostly from the fact that it is perhaps one of the cheapest exercise options around and it is extremely versatile and effective. No equipment is needed just tenacity and commitment. Burpees, push ups, squats, bear crawls all of these will be your best friends if you opt in for the top trend in workouts. High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) slips down to second spot after ruling 2014. As its name implies, it is based on alternating short bursts of exercise followed by a short period of rest or recovery. Even though an average HIIT session usually last less than 30min it is extremely intense. One of the most common drawbacks when …

Shake Up Your Wake Up…

“Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” When I think about breakfast I always think about time. I have to say that morning is one my favourite time of the day with the smell of coffee taking over the house, sitting on the couch, taking each coffee sip with great delight while waiting for my body to wake up. But that’s usually what I think I have time for, even though I have plenty of time to do more. But this is not what I tell myself. Sometimes I am really good and make my own porridge to take to work and have it at my desk, I even try different toppings to make it more fun but soon I get really bored of porridge. Then I switch to cereal for a while and go for rice or hazelnut milk but still after few days I get bored and drop the whole breakfast thing. Comes 10am, classic snack time I am usually trying to do ‘something super important’ to keep …
