Outfit Post – Looking forward to spring

*Collaborative post.

 

We are almost half way into February and the end of winter is drawing near. I am seriously looking forward to spring now. It is not my favourite season, but it is a good change from this cold winter weather. Plus, we pretty much skipped spring last year, with the extended winter weather that ended in March. And the summer weather that started in April. Having some spring weather this year will be amazing.

I got this lovely Gerda Self Ribbon Blouse by Elvi Ladies Clothing some weeks ago, and wore it to my nephew’s 10th birthday party last week in Chelmsford Essex. The design of the blouse caught my eye immediately when I saw it. Prior to getting my hands on this blouse, I had nothing like it in my wardrobe. The self ribbon detail is a beautiful design. I love it and I also love the fluted sleeve. I think this blouse is really pretty. What do you think?

Everything else I have on is an oldie. I love the black jeans. It fits like a glove and is my go to jeans for many looks. Back in the day, I struggled with finding the right pair of jeans. It was either too low and tight, or too baggy with a shabby look. So I was very happy to find this particular pair of jeans and a few others many few years ago.

12 Fitness Gifts for Exercise Lovers to Keep Them Motivated All Year

If you know a person who loves to work out and remain fit, you should also know the right gifts to buy for him or her. Finding the right fitness gifts for a friend or family member is important if you want the person to know that you care. Here are some gift ideas for your exercise-loving friend:

 

Apple Watch

Every fitness buff needs to own an Apple watch to track everything from calories burned to heart rate and steps. Moreover, if the person likes working out to music, she can play her favorite tunes from the Apple Watch.

 

Other than sports, it also allows your friend to leave her phone at home and receive calls and messages on the watch. Before buying this gift, you should check to see whether your friend already has an Apple Watch to avoid buying her the same thing.

 

Yoga Mat

A soft and gripping yoga mat is every fitness lover’s dream. Opt for a yoga mat that has a thick fabric top layer, which supports the knees and elbows properly. If possible, you should choose a yoga mat that has the ability to roll itself up into place after you finish exercising. Although not all exercise lovers practice yoga, you should consider buying your friend a yoga mat.

 

Personalized Jersey

You should order a personalized jersey for your friend depending on the sport that he loves. For instance, if he loves softball, you should make personalized softball jerseys. You just need to figure out where to order mens softball jerseys to make sure that you end up with the best one.

When ordering a personalized jersey, you need to spell out the details carefully. To do this, you have to know your friend well: what would he want written on his jersey? If he would prefer to have his name only on the jersey, you should give the company his name.

 

Personalized Water Bottle

If you want your friend to appreciate your gift more, you should go for a personalized gift. Because most fitness buffs need to remain hydrated, personalizing a water bottle is the best thing you can do. You can either buy a personalized bottle from the supermarket or buy a plain bottle and personalize it for yourself.

You can personalize the bottle with stick-on vinyl lettering that displays a motivational message. For instance, you can use the phrase “drink up” or “good job”. Whatever message you choose to display, make sure that it resonates with the person for whom you are getting the gift.

 

Polka Dot Yoga Pants

You can buy a pair of plain yoga pants and spice them up by using a bleach pen to create a pattern. You should wait for the bleach to settle in before you add some pop of color to the pants. Although this gift might seem cheap, the thought and effort will count for something. Just make sure that you choose a pair of yoga pants that will fit your friend.

 

DIY Workout Gear Cleaner

Keeping weights, sportswear, and yoga mats clean is not easy, especially if the gym lover does not have much time to spare. To help your friend to remain clean, you should make a DIY gear cleaner that will make it easier to keep her things clean. You just have to combine a few ingredients into a spritzer to make it easier to keep gym gear fresh.

 

Locking Shoelaces

The best gift that you can get for your gym-loving friend is a pair of locking shoelaces that will allow her to work out without any interruption or accidents. Gifting this will make you look like a good friend because you care about your friend’s safety. To create locking shoelaces, you only have to attach cord locks to some thick elastic laces.

You should then cap off the ends of the cord with scotch tape as well as Washi tape to add a touch of color. This gift is simple and affordable but it shows that you care.

 

Water Bottle Gripping Band

You can make a bottle grip by trimming the inside of a beer koozie then adding an easy handle grip. This gift will make it easier to grip onto a bottle after the hand gets sweaty. Instead of giving this gift by itself, you should package it with some headbands and journals. Making your friend a water bottle grip band is the best way to encourage her to remain hydrated during her workout.

Conclusion

Whether you love going to the gym or have a friend that you want to support, the above presents will encourage a motivated life of working out. As a surprise, you can pair your present with a plan to train together in future. This will allow you to combine the gift with a great experience.

Outfit Post – A Tommy Hilfiger Casual Look

Summer is on the day out. The days and nights are getting chilly with more rain. And Autumn (or Fall like my American friends call it) is definitely on the way in. I would miss the long sunny days but definitely not the extreme temperatures. Autumn is one of my favourite seasons so I am looking forward to it. I love the autumn/winter fashion, and can’t wait to start styling some pieces on her. But for now, I need to publish all my summer outfits pictures on Fashion and Style Police. This Tommy Hilfiger Casual Look was taken some weeks ago. I love the colours styled here. They look so good together.

Lately, I have been so into casual looks. It could be my own way of making the most of the summer season before it bids us farewell until 2019. Or it could just be me wanting to stay dead comfy. I like this look here. it was dead easy to style. I got the T-shirt from Macy’s while holidaying in the US earlier in the year. Everything else I have on is an oldie but goldie.

As a fashion blogger, many would think I shop on a regular basis, which is so far from the truth. With 2 growing toddlers, I hardly shop for myself these days. But when I do, I make sure I invest in quality pieces so they last a long time. That way I have more clothing and accessories for longer.

Style Tip

Go for quality over quantity and save money in the long run.
