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.

A Weekend In Paris

I wasn’t originally going to blog this as I still prefer to keep some memories private, ones that I feel are too precious to be spoken about openly. But having gone through my pics, there are still some that I am dying to share with you.

Again in November, J and I decided we would go for a weekend trip to one of Europe’s most romantic cities. Here are some highlights:

Dim Sum. Shrimply Delicious!

Before I launch full-steam ahead with my dim sum pics, allow me a short intermission to rave about the most delicious pair of boots I have ever seen. I am coveting these like nobody’s business and pretty much only need one more push (or the gentlest of nudges) to own a new pair of buttery suede Stuart Weitzmans.

They are all the rage right now and I’m seeing them pop up everywhere. Everywhere, no joke. Yes, they are of course…

The Sunglass Hut & The Golden Gate Bridge

Disclaimer: as far as I know The Sunglass Hut and Golden Gate Bridge have nothing to do with each other. We were just taking photos with our new sunglasses (brought from the Sunglass Hut, and there’s a story about them below) at the Golden Gate Bridge, hence the title. Apologies in advance for any confusion or disappointment, I hope it won’t stop you reading the post ;)

The next day was our last day together, so I took a half day off, and was whisked away to take selfies at the Golden Gate Bridge.
