What’s in my gym bag?

The gym is my sanity. If I didn’t go to the gym I would probably be a total crazy person. Fitting the gym in some days can be a challenge so I have to have my gym bag stocked and ready to go at all times. I’ve compiled a list of my necessities to keep in my bag so if I want to stop at the gym on the way home from work I can.

1 // adidas Weekender Duffel Bag

I love this bag because first its super cute. Second, its very functional. I love how big it is so I can keep my spin shoes, hair stuff, supplements etc. There’s room for it all!

2 // PreWorkout from WM Nutrition

There are so many things about this PreWorkout that I love. It doesn’t make you jittery & can be taken in pixie stick form. I absolutely hate downing a bunch of water before a workout because it makes me feel sick. I’ve tried plenty of other pre workouts that also make you feel like your skin is crawling & this one does not do that at all. 2 things to note about this PreWorkout. 1 – it will melt & turn into goo if you leave it in your car. 2 – I prefer the regular PreWorkout the All-Natural is EXTREMELY SOUR.

3 // BCAA’s from Scivation

If you don’t know what BCAA’s are, they’re amino acids that help your muscles to recover quicker. It also has electrolytes to help replenish after getting your sweat on. These are by far my favorite that I’ve found so far (brand & flavor).

4 // Burt’s Bees Chapstick

This is the one thing in my bag that I cannot live without. If I don’t have moisturized lips I can’t function or focus on my workout because I become consumed with how dry my lips are. I have always been a believer in Burt’s Bees the texture is tacky which I love & it lasts thru a whole training session.

5 // Make-Up Wipes

I have this exact box which includes full sizes for at home & little travel sizes that are perfect for the gym! The last thing I enjoy doing is working out in a full face of make-up. You can also use them to freshen up post workout if you need to run to the grocery store or know you’re going to be delayed in washing the proof of your hard work off.

6 // Headphones

Pretty much a given in any gym bag is headphones. I like my beats, but they are actually an older model so this is the current version that’s out. I’ve had them for year & they have an amazing sound quality. I will say that I love to steal my moms AirPods whenever I get the change though.

7 // Wet Brush

Still obsessed with the Wet Brush. I have to talk myself out of buying a new one every time I see them in Target. They don’t hurt your head & work like a dream.

8 // Batiste Travel Size Dry Shampoo

Always have to have dry shampoo on hand to keep your hair lasting!

9 // Hair Ties

This one is pretty obvious if you have long hair.

10 // Cycling Shoes

I love these spin shoes I got from Pearl iZUMi. If you’re from Utah and you can make it into their outlet store they always have deals going on.

11 // Nike No-Show Socks

After one bad incident of forgetting socks at a post work gym session, I make sure I have an extra pair of these no-show socks.

12 // Redken Travel Size Hairspray

My favorite hairspray again is a given because nothing bothers my more than pieces of hair in my face as I struggle for oxygen.

June Monthly Update

Okay we’re a little bit late on this one, but better late than never AMIRIGHT?? I think I am. June has been crazy and I cannot believe it’s almost the 4th of July! I’ve been waiting for fireworks & BBQs for SO LONG! I’ve been using my youtube app a lot lately watching make-up tutorials, one I am loving is Desi Perkins. She is a glow & brow queen, everything she makes really is so awesome. Definitely check her out. Also her make-up room is to DIE for, if there was one thing in life I could have THIS WOULD BE IT!!

 

Songs :

Products :

  1. I’ve NEVER been a fan of blush before, until I found this color from Tarte. I always end up looking too flushed and red. This blush is different, it’s subtle and the perfect color for my pale pale complexion.
  2. My new favorite lipgloss in the color creme brûlée & its $3.69 at Target.
  3. I’m SO excited to share this Protein Water. YES!! Protein water. I absolutely hate protein shakes, but these… these are AMAZING. 60 calories. 0 sugar. 15g protein. Depending on the flavor the protein is 10-15 grams. I got the variety pack with 15g.
  4. I ordered this jumpsuit for my trip to Seattle. Since I’ve been home I’ve worn it multiple times & I try to wear it every chance I get. It’s seriously comfy and can be dressed up or down.
  5. I’ve been looking for a pair of platform sandals for a minute and found these black Steven Madden ones. Also considering these ones with a white sole.
  6. Brought home this pair of Nike’s from the 5 floors of bliss Nordstrom store in Washington.
  7. HAIR ACCESSORIES… Anyone else been loving this trend?? Found this cute Bandana pony scarf. Maybe I’ll make a full post with all the fun things I’ve found recently, we’ll see.
  8. Nothing says summer like an eyelet blouse.
  9. Summer also means a lot of weddings to attend. I love this pocketed fringe dress.
  10. This Tommy Tee is so cute, it could even work for the 4th of July that isn’t so 4th of July.
  11. Gingham and tie front, this shirt is a winner.
  12. Might need one more swimsuit to get thru the summer, this striped lace-up front one piece will do.

Websites :

Love all the cute clothes on vicicollection.com. They always have a 20% discount going on & you can find the code on their Instagram but really they already have great prices!

Going through a home decor obsessed phase so I’ve been spending a fair amount of time on crateandbarrel.com.

Reading :

I read 2 books by Shari Lapena and both were SO GOOD. I’ve been into mystery thrillers lately and I couldn’t put either one of these down. I read A Stranger in The House and The Couple Next Door.

White Sneakers & How to Keep them White

It’s no secret white shoes are a huge trend because they are so versatile. You can wear them with a dress, jeans or shorts & they still look cute, but how do you keep your white shoes looking white? Below is what I do & other ideas of what you can do to keep those shoes around for awhile.

1. Protectant Spray – if you google this one from Nordstrom there are tons of crazy videos to show you exactly how well it works.

2. Washing Machine – I had someone tell me they’d never heard of putting shoes in the washing machine. This is how I wash all my canvas type shoes or even Nike sneakers & air dry them. Not all shoes can be washed so be sure to look into your specific pair.

3. Magic Eraser – I’ve a huge fan of magic erasers and they work great on leather or the soles of your shoes.

4. Tooth Brush & Soap – This is my ride or die when cleaning shoes. There’s always 2 tooth brushes in my bathroom. 1 for brushing teeth and 1 for cleaning shoes. I love it because you can clean them as they get dirty so if you have one little spot it’s easy to hurry and get it out.

5. Bleach – I don’t use this often because bleach scares me honestly, I always end up with bleach somewhere it’s not supposed to be. If you use this method be sure to dilute it with water!

Tip : Put a towel inside the shoes to help them dry faster.

Favorite Finds

JANUARY!! This is actually my least favorite month of the year, but we’re making it work by staying comfy and reading lots of books. Here is my monthly update on things I’m loving/wanting (if you’re wondering why you haven’t seen one before it’s because this is the first post in it’s series!) ALSO the New Year!! I promise one of my resolutions is to post more regularly & to post more lifestyle stuff as well.

41WN+9rZG0L

The True Moisturizing Bomb from belief – I was nervous to try this heavier cream moisturized because I typically use a gel with my sensitive skin, but this moisturizer makes my skin SO SOFT. Like baby butt soft. I cannot get enough of it and it didn’t make me break out.

_102265611

Nike Jogger Pants – I’m a sucker for a good pair of joggers. And this color.

St. Tropez Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse – I’ve posted about the Classic Bronzing Mousse, but I finally tried the express and I’ve been missing out for sure. This tan lasted over a week for me (gradually fading during that time) and for me to have only applied it once to get those results is amazing. Please learn from my mistake and DO NOT sleep in it. Let it process for the recommended time.

LW4AP4S_012413_1

lululemon Define Jacket – My mom bought me this jacket for Christmas and it’s a struggle not to wear it everyday.

I can’t stop checking these Kancan overalls. But I hate overalls so I’m very skeptical about how they’re going to look on me.

 

2218075

It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-in Product – One of the things I pride myself in is having super soft hair, but my hair gets dry and looks really frizzy during the winter. This is one of the products I’ve been using to help tame and keep my sleek looking hair. It’s a leave in product I spray after the shower to help detangle, control frizz, and keep it looking silky and smooth.

WM Nutrition Pre Workout – This Pre Workout comes in little packets and YOU DON’T NEED WATER! They’re just like Pixy Sticks, but the flavors are even yummier! I got the variety pack and love all 3 flavors that come inside. I don’t get jittery AT ALL and have tons of energy.

Workout Tank I just got this tank and it actually makes me want to go to the gym. It’s fitted so perfectly. Truly I think it makes me look 10x better than I actually look and I have no clue how.

Been wearing the same black booties for 3 months straight. Here are very similar ones!

S’well Water Bottle to keep up with my resolution to stay hydrated.

Cutest wire basket to organize blankets.

I have wanted these shoes since the day they released them, adidas NMD R1 Primeknit.
