I’m currently on the hunt for my next gym bag! I like my bag to serve a dual purpose of both cute and functional, it normally takes quite a bit of research before finding the perfect bag.
So far these are my favorites:
Ivanka Trump Handbag, Garnet Shopper: “Exquisite laser cut overlay envelopes this faux metallic leather shopper from Ivanka Trump. Elegant and softly structured, its spacious shape easily accommodates your everyday essentials.” The bag range from $135 – $195. Available here.
Mesh Madness Dome Satchel: “Covered in mesh perforations and man-made trim with gold detail. Interior floral lining with interior zip pockets and slip pockets and zipper closure” $108. Available here.
Vinyasa To Vino Bag: ”The line from necessity to vice can get a little blurry (especially after a couple glasses of Syrah). We wanted to make the transition from class to glass as easy as possible so we designed a bag with plenty of storage space. Ample room for yoga gear (and wine store booty), separate pockets for our phone and laptop as well as a stowable, removable mat strap make this bag our new go-to.” $128. Available here.
As many of you may know I have spent the last few weeks getting ready for my Pilates photo shoot on Sunday (fingers crossed the weather does not let me down). I have dabbled in part time modeling for 10 years, so it should technically be no biggie. But seeing that I’m styling the shoot myself and I am my own client, it’s taken up more time than the usual just “be well groomed and rock up” at the shoot.
During my prepping I started thinking about full time models and their whole routine, so I googled it and found an article that pretty much sounded to me like what us every day girls do in any case. The article discussed how to show your skin at it’s best: doing exercise, moisturizing, shaving, tanning/self tanning and my two favorites: don’t pop pimples and posing. All in all the routine of all girlie girls out there -yes, you know you pose I’ve seen you in the locker room ladies!
Conclusion: In essence we are all our own super models and the streets and our lives are our catwalks, strot your stuff ladies and strot it well.
