Daily Outfit Inspo – Feeling Active

posted by Teagan West January 22, 2015 0 comments

Happy Thursday ladies! I’m feeling like I need to get back into an exercise routine, and we know there’s no better way to get motivated than to don cool-girl active threads (you can see our favourite Australian active brands here). I personally love the Lorna Jane and Adidas by Stella McCartney range of activewear with an everyday, lifestyle feel. They’re perfect for a river walk and coffee date, the gym and groceries or a school run followed by group pilates. Whatever the active occasion there’s something funky to rock.

And a pink combo never fails!

Active Threads to Inspire

posted by Teagan West January 16, 2015 1 Comment

It’s mid-January (gasp!), so it’s time to evaluate your New Year resolutions and see if you’re on track…

I bet there’s a whole army of you promising to focus on your health, fitness and general wellbeing – whether it be eating a more balanced diet, using that gym membership, meditating for internal wellbeing, exercising daily or having more ‘me’ time. We all know how hard it is come January to start bringing those goals to fruition on the 1st, and it’s even harder 2 weeks in.

So how are you going, so far? Are you giving it your all and reaping the benefits, or are you struggling to get motivated and up-and-at-‘em? Whatever the case, a little bit of motivation (in the form of retail therapy of course) cannot go astray.

I know I’m very guilty of finding motivation to exercise in the form of buying new active gear. It’s a way of starting fresh and being inspired by active threads that support you and get you in the mood for a good sweat. From my own experience, it works a treat (plus it’s a justified shopping trip!). Here’s some of the best activewear in Oz that’ll inspire you to reach your health and fitness goals in 2015. Sweat it out in style babes.

HATHA CLOTHING

Modern and stylish yoga attire inspired by the colourful leggings adorning Brazil’s active crowd. The Hatha range is designed on the Sunshine Coast and made ethically in Rio de Janeiro from high performance fabrics which offer flexibility and UV protection and are breathable, soft, lightweight and definitely no see through.

FK X FIT

Street fashion label Finders Keepers has just launched a new activewear range that combines the brands style aesthetic with high performance activewear. At the moment there’s only two prints – floral and blue tartan – however it’s enough to whet the appetite for what is sure to come next (think leopard, pinstripe and more).

Give your mum something, or two things, from Lorna Jane that will motivate her for a fresh new year. She can get organised with a planner or diary, get motivated with Lorna Jane’s fitness and business success stories, and make some nourishing recipes in a stylish new apron.

My mums picks are the insulated lunch bag and Nourish cook book – which if you grabbed for your mum, would save you $30!

Enjoy spoiling your Mama the way she deserves!

Christmas Gift Guide : For The Gals in Your Life

posted by Teagan West November 24, 2014 2 Comments

We’re four weeks out from Christmas (gasp) so we’re here to lend you a helping hand when it comes to ticking things off your ‘presents to buy’ list.

I’ve got endless inspiration for gift-giving to the ladies in your life – the sporty chic, homely gal, fashion dolly, boho babe, trendsetting sista, bling-loving diva, stylish fashionista, girly girl, brand-name dame, active woman and social butterfly. I’ve got them all covered!

Lads especially, take note.

I’m loving the entire High Summer 2014 Collection of sandals, flats and heels by Sol Sana that I couldn’t stop at including just one in my gift guide. They’re the perfect addition to every summer wardrobe when paired with a cute new hat, statement jewels and gypsy luxe threads (Spell Designs can do no wrong in this department).

Makeup, bags, perfume, skincare and accessories are all 20-something’s dream come true, and a fancy new camera to ignite creativity is the perfect gift for someone extra special.

For those who are a little harder to buy for, a beautiful candle and a selection of quality tea make a fabulous present – they’re both something we love, but wouldn’t usually splash the cash on, instead opting for a very cheap alternative.

An inspiring bio, healthy living cookbook and a dash of activewear to get her moving and motivated post festive season round off my go-to christmas gift guide.

Sister, check. Cousin, Check. Girlfriend, Check. New love interest, Check. Friend, Check. Sister-in-law, Check. Secret Santa Gift, Check. Best friend, Check. Daughter, Check. They’re all sorted come December 25.
