Get your fit on

Looks the park is going to be my new “gym” for a while longer and I have been adding plenty of flamboyant gym gear to my, erm always expanding flamboyant gym gear collection.

Mighty Solo is a Swedish brand from Stockholm, with garments designed by women for women to make for comfortable, supportive workout gear.

I got the Midnight Palm set (wearing S (size 6), PR sample) and it got delivered super fast. The packaging was great – compact, recyclable box, a travel bag and a lovely heritage touch: a traditional Dala horse doll.

The set is lovely – great, vidi colours, resilient fabric that shapes you and is comfortable, which for me is a must for circus workouts.

Stitching and seams are well finished and the cut is flattering, I was quite impressed.

Both pieces are polyester and spandex mix, and the four-way stretch fabric is moisture-wicking and quick drying. The steady elastic bands do not dig into your sides.

Leggings are squat (or pike/straddle inversions, in my case) proof, so it does not go see through. Win.

The sports bra has removable pads and offers a decent support, although I am quite small on the breast department so cannot comment on support that much!

You can check their range at the Mighty Solo website, were you find patterned but also plain colour sets. You can also by separates and mix and match. The Midnight Palm leggings cost $69 and the top $49.

Plus, with my exclusive discount code SMLT15 you get 15% off!

You know the drill, but I’ll say anyway: this post contains PR samples as products were sent to me free of charge, with no obligation to post. Opinions are honest and my own.

Vevie pop-up shop in London


Feeling fabulous and beach-ready with Vevie

Seaside frolics, anyone? How to refuse an invitation to such themed event? Impossible – so off I went to the Vevie pop-up shop on the King’s Road in London. I am glad I did and got to know more about Vevie, a lifestyle, exercise and fitness clothing brand that also do the cutest swimwear.

I got a very warm reception from Alexandra and Carie from Seymour PR and the lovely British designer Caroline Greenslade, who designed swimwear for big brands during her career before deciding to fly solo and launch Vevie at the end of 2012. There was bubbly, lovely canapes and a cute cutout board for pictures.

However, the stars of the evening were really the garments, especially the swimwear. The fabrics are amazing; you can really feel the quality upon touch. The designs are classics and very stylish; clean with adorable touches, slightly retro. They also have in-built support, removable cups, boning, are chlorine resistant, have anti bag & sag performance (up to 200 hours!!!) and are resistant to suntan oils and Body oils.

The fitness wear was also impressive, beautifully designed and crafted, oozing quality and style – think workout jackets, vests, leggings, yoga pants in a beautiful colour palette.

Given the quality, design and craftsmanship, it comes to no surprise they are priced accordingly. Fitness wear prices range between £35 and £125 and swimwear, £80-£160. All styles are available in UK sizes 8-18.

I also got a peek of a beautiful line of bikinis, some with stunning vintage prints, launching soon. Be very excited!

The goody bags were very generous, with goodies from King’s Road spa EF Medispa (putting together a bag with products from Skinceuticals, Biologique Recherche, Cosmedix and Results RX, £25 off a facial), Caudalie with a Divine Oil, balance Me with a skin bright hydrating face mist, a 50% off voucher for Vevie and 50% off all treatments at Lash Perfect Lash Bar! Phew!

They will be on the King’s Road Pop-up Britain shop until the 17 July. I recommend that you pay them a visit and touch the garments. You will, like me, fall in love. Pretty, pretty!
