Gifts For Your Flexible Yoga Friend

Whether you are looking to buy a gift for someone who does yoga everyday, multiple times a day, and doesn’t care about materialistic things; or for someone who tends to go to yoga class right before their shopping sprees – you can’t go wrong with a yoga mat. It doesn’t matter what brand of yoga mat you own, if you use it everyday you will need to replace it eventually. Daily use wears the little grooves designed to stick to your feet, making the surface slippery when you sweat. So take a look at these beautiful yoga mats I found at Urban Outfitters and other colorful stores and see if any of them catch your eye.

Work Out Clothes For Her

Today is officially the end of the second work week of 2015. How are you holding up so far? I hope you are feeling amazing! I have high hopes for this year and I am taking advantage of every day. Can you believe we are on the ninth day of 2015? I do! I am enjoying myself but I am also working working working. I also took a look at my workout clothes and decided they needed revamping. There’s nothing like a cute new top to motivate you to get your butt out of bed and go jogging. Here are some of the cute goodies I found.

Zella Live in 2 Capris

My absolute favorite workout pants are the Zella Live in Capris but I was getting tired of always wearing black capri pants. I’m so happy to see they released the same pants with a dotted pattern. They are adorable, comfortable and practical.

Finding the perfect pair of workout pants is not as easy as you’d think. Some leggings are not comfortable. Others are made of thin fabric causing them to stick to your legs showing every little imperfection. Sometimes pants are tight in weird places giving your body a weird overall shape, making things bulge where they are not supposed to. Others are see through and you only realize until you’re in some awkward pose in the middle of your pilates class that everyone can see your underwear. It has taken me years to find the perfect pants that shape my body the way I like it and are tight in all the right places. You might be thinking, “Hey lady just wear whatever. You’re going to go sweat.” That might work for some people but I personally do not feel like working out when the pants I’m wearing make me feel like an improperly stuffed sausage. So if any of you are picky like me. I recommend these Zella pants.

The Utility Fashion Trend

Part of my daily routine is to sift through all of the new arrivals for major fashion websites. I had been noticing a rise in “mechanic jumpsuity” looking items and I was thinking to myself… I like this trend. I always loved wearing dickies pants to my roller hockey practices. They were comfortable and practical; and there was definitely a look to it – a tight tank top with baggy dickies pants and skates. It looked cool. Anyhoo, I was glad to stumble upon ASOS’ newsletter announcing the Utility trend (that definitely sounds more chic that mechanic jumpsuity). Below is a round up of my top picks from the latest Utility trend.

Diesel Biker Jumpsuit

Stretch cotton denim with V-neckline, zip through front and side zip pockets. This jumper has a skinny fit – cut closely to the body.

Fun Party Games

Looking for a gift for someone who likes to involve everyone at a get together? Getting a party game is the solution! I have rounded up some of the most entertaining party and/or table top games below:

Cards Against Humanity

Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. Unlike most of the party games you’ve played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends. The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a black card, and everyone else answers with their funniest white card.
