2016 is shaping up to be an exciting year – this is my first ever blog post and I certainly hope that people enjoy reading to ensure it’s not my last!
I thought I’d begin by writing about a purchase I made last week. I make a promise to myself at the start of every year that I will make more of an effort to exercise and improve my diet. Although during the summer I do make an effort to lead a healthy lifestyle, my workout routine and eating habits slip as the winter months draw in, and then it’s back to square one again.
I came across Gymshark last week and after falling in love with their bright colours and flattering designs, I decided to order 2 pairs of running leggings. I went for the Gymshark Flex Leggings in Cerise as well as the Gymshark Form Running Leggings in Black/White (both pictured below.)
I usually go for dark colours, i.e. black and grey, when purchasing clothes but I think the pop of pink on the first pair of leggings is very fun and the stripes at the bottom add something different. Whereas the black leggings were more of a safe option.
As far as fit, I ordered both pairs in an XS as I wear a UK size 6 or 8 and they were very true to size. My only fault was that, as I am rather small, (around 5’4″) I had to roll the leggings up at the bottom slightly as they bunched up, but I can’t really complain.
I will definitely be ordering more sportswear from this UK-based company, which will hopefully give me the motivation I need to get back on track.
