Style: My New Favourite Yoga Pants

Last month was Amazon Prime Day and if you were browsing my blog in the past few weeks you may have noticed I had a little widget on the side of my blog showing some workout clothes I purchased that day.

It’s now been a month and I think I can finally provide a solid review — at least for one of the products. Out of all the sets I purchased, I decided to keep only one thing: these Lululemon Dupe yoga pants.

In case you’re interested in a set of Gymshark or Lululemon dupes, please do read on because I can at least give you my thoughts on all of these items I purchased, and the reasons I decided to return most of them.

It’s Black Friday today so many of these items are back on sale or even cheaper than when I’d purchased them. So here’s my quick summary of why I kept (or didn’t keep) the following items:

1. OLCHEE Crop Top Yoga Activewear Set in “E: Pink and Grey”, size 2-4 – Returned.

I bought the crop top & shorts set and intended to mix and match this with another pink/grey Gymshark dupe set (see below), but the material was slightly different and the colours were slightly off. This wouldn’t have been a dealbreaker had it not been for poor fit as well.

This set didn’t fit me well. I have thicker upper thighs, and the elastic around the bottom of the shorts is fairly tight. The shorts aren’t long enough to reach down to my slimmer lower thighs, meaning the elastic pinched in the fat on my upper thighs and made it look incredibly unflattering. The bra fit okay-ish, but I felt like it was a little large on me around the ribcage area. I didn’t really like it enough to keep, and especially not given the ill-fitting shorts.

September Sun in Santa Barbara

There are simply too many photos to share, and I’m majorly behind on blogging.  I don’t want to forget recent events because I’ve delayed writing about them for so long, so looks like the plan is to squish the rest of my States trip into one or two more posts, and start writing about recent stuff.

Sit tight, this one’s a long one and very photo-heavy!

LA Part II – Celeb Spotting (sorta…)

My boyfriend is arriving… TOMORROW!  I’m not quite sure I’m able to contain my excitement, but I’ll try so I can sleep and not look like a zombie tomorrow :)  I don’t want to fall too far behind blogging again or I’ll have no motivation to blog once he arrives.  When I have too much stuff to do I just want to do nothing.  So let’s get this post up, eh?

Meanwhile in LA…

A Bag Of Beauty(con)!

Recently my super talented friend & Women’s Fashion Editor for a variety of publications, Emma Cooke, spent her time gallivanting around London Fashion Week.   Of course, she ended up with tickets to all of the after parties, and being an amazing friend, she invited me as her +1 to one of them as well: Beautycon.

I had a helluvanamazingtime, drank a very happy amount, scoffed some sweeties, nabbed myself a goodie bag, and took altogether way too few photos.  Not pictured are: photo booth, DJ, bar, SWEETS TABLE, the actual location with chandeliers and posh bathrooms that I really should have researched.  Apparently it was a swish place.  Sending me there was pretty much like putting a pig in a castle.  Sadly no real appreciation for it whatsoever.

But I met some famous people! :)
