Creating a habit of regular exercise doesn’t require special gadgets or even equipments. Walking instead of taking the bus and climbing the stairs could be good enough for most folks. But if you’re bored and want to be on your toe with your results or enjoy using technology to enhance ordinary tasks, there is so many electronic exercise gadgets and digital devices available for everyone!
As someone who likes to keep active every day and workout regularly, I have been searching for a fitness band for some time as I have always wanted to monitor and track all my fitness and lifestyle related metrics such as distance walked, distance ran, number of hours slept, and calorie consumption, i do it not to lose weight but just to know my body better.
So my search began and I found out that there are many fitness bands available out in the market today such as the Garmin Vivofit, Basis, Nike+ Fuelband SE, Withings Pulse, Jawbone UP24 and Misfit Shine, among others. They all have different features and each one of them is styled differently. The one that recently caught my eye though is the Fitbit Flex.
Although there are many other Fitbit style of fitness bands, the Fitbit Flex in my opinion is the best one of the lot as it offers a long list of features making it the most complete product of its kind and the best fitness tracker you can buy. It is also one of the best and most competitively priced trackers available, offering many more features than its competitors, and is priced much cheaper than similar products such as the Nike + FuelBand and Jawbone UP. Alot of my clients are seen with the Fitbit Flex.
Some of its features include the ability to track the number of steps you have taken, your sleep quality, the amount of calories you have consumed, and a silent wake alarm that gently vibrates to wake you at your desired time. The Fitbit Flex also automatically syncs all the data collected wirelessly to either your PC, Mac, iOS device, and select Andorid phones, providing the user with real-time access to all the stats on the Fitbit dashboard at any time of the day.
As I scoured the net in search of the best price for the Fitbit Flex, I noticed that today was the launch of the LAZADA 100 SALE on http://www.lazada.sg/lazada100/. It turns out that Lazada Singapore are celebrating 100 days since the launch of their website in Singapore and they are having a sale featuring their TOP 100 Best Selling Items at prices of up to 90% off!

I'm super particular when it comes to workout clothes! hey also because its my uniform. Having a top that isn't to long and a bottom that isn't ridding up my butt makes a hell load of difference. I want to be able to do my exercise in comfort and not keep adjusting my top every repetition, also i want something that i can wear out looking chic.

Sometimes I question myself, do I really need that many workout clothes? They are my “uniform” but I always find more excuses to get more, I mean they do turn into mops of perspiration at the end of the day so why wear fancy clothes? but hand up to a girl that do not want to look good? I also know that sports wear are expensive therefore I've listed ways to burn your fats, not your pocket!
I know its very superficial to want to look pretty when you are after all just going to the gym to workout, but I’ve seen many girls around the gym feeling unconfident and adjusting their tops umpteen numbers of time and taking more energy to check what they are wearing in the wash room rather than actually working out, i am not judging just that i spend so much time at work, i analyse a lot of things, even how many people have used the same mat and wonder how much perspiration it had soaked up, I'm grossed out just thinking about it, also ladies i understand that it doesn’t make it any easier when there is another gender present unless you join an all female gym or workout at home.
So why not make some effort buying sports wear that's not only comfortable but looks good too, instead of spending money on a new pair of jeans or a dress, when you buy workout clothes you not only want to look good in them but you are investing in your health, it will give you the reason to actually start working out more or even trigger you to want to workout because you have after all spent money and put in effort and buying that outfit in the first place, roll your eyes on me, i know all of us like looking good and smelling good, even some men, else why do they spend so much time pumping biceps. *wink *wink*
Have you gone shopping lately and noticed that you’re favourite store added a new addition to their range of clothes, the active wear section! How genius is that, not only they are chic, it is affordable in compared to the big brands that’s been in the market. But I always tell myself ,that we should own at least a pair of good tights, below are some brands to consider if you do not want to burn your pocket.
If you are going to start working out 2-3 times a week here's what you need just to ensure you have enough time to wash them,unless you have helpers or your mom's hobby is washing clothes then you better ensure than you have this in your closet.
1) a pair of tights low or short
2)a pair of shorts (for outdoor activities)
3)2 top ( 1 sleeve, 1 sleeveless or your preference)
4)2 pair of sports bra or i actually fancy buying tops with bra inside.
H&M SPORTS COLLECTION
I dropped by H&M and pretty decent quality! it one of the range that carries men's wear too.
COTTON ON BODY ACTIVEWEAR
I seen a lot of girls on instagram prancing in cotton on tights and damn it looks good, variety of fun colours and super loud design.
FOREVER 21 ACTIVEWEAR
I saw this online, a friend of mine told me they carry sport wear! and forever 21 activewear is pretty similar with Victoria Secret sport range, very chic and affordable.
GAP FIT SPORTS COLLECTION
Love the material of Gap Fit, the price not so much, the price is similar to a Nike of course i choose you Nike ( hehe) but hey check them out!
GOOD OLD FBT
When i played netball, this was hot! every girls who wanted to be hotter didn't want to wear school pants but fbt!! So comfy, i use to live in them under my skirts in school and i would roll them up and make it even shorter but they do make shorter version now! super cheap too !!
So there you go, check out all this new sportswear range thats slightly more affordable than bigger brands but if you do fancy Nikes or Adidas here is a couple of tips to save up a little since they do last forever!
1)Find out how to own a membership , mostly comes with discounted price also during birthday month you get to enjoy up to 20% discount.
2) Shop with another friend to enjoy discounts, i mean not everyone can afford a minimum spending of $150 dollars to receive a 20% discount, but if you do have a friend, the hole gets smaller.
3)Shop at the Factory Outlet! they are not the latest collection but way more cheaper.
4)If your friends,parents or partner ask what you want for your birthday, say sport wear! if you want something ask!! instead of getting another watch or a new gadget.
5) Shop online, yes sometimes you are able to save more when you shop online, gather your friends and order them together to cut cost.
There you go! have a good weekend everyone!

Recently Limaran and i are crazy over Lorna Jane, its an Australian Fitness brand, every one of their clothing have tiny little heart shape stay on sticker and mini details accessories on each top and bottom and they are so comfortable, don't get me wrong i still love my Nikes but these babies are so chic.
Cant wait to get my hands on these items below!
visit Lorna Jane website.
New workout clothes always makes me happy..
The stages was set clear and lights were dimmed, An upbeat chant took over the stage, i couldn't describe the type of genre very well , it similar to a loud, mystical thud combination that felt very close to the ancient tribal song and the first model sashayed through the stage with layers of exquisite material, and each and every piece of his collection stood out on its own with shoes that were to die for, yes i m a in my sneakers day in and out but i love my heels, it just make you want to stand up taller and take gentle strides as you walk, the heels were to die for if i could afford them of course.
There was a common colour throughout his entire collection, nonetheless all were daintily assemble and every design had details that i wondered what influenced him when he was designing each piece, i am sure every piece have a story to tell.
If only he was my facilitator for my extra subject that i had to take that was not related to sport back in the day, i had a thing for fashion and design back then but my facilitator ruined it for me, she didn't understand all my pieces i assemble together, imagine if i had Prabal i probably would be a designer by now or sightly more fashionable besides donning 3 inch shorts and top tights that makes my lats spread, which isn't fun trying to remove a bodycon dress or any thing fitted for that matter, When i was a little girl i wanted to be a model! or a hand model, my hands are so dry and ruined, they feel like sandpaper ill just stick what i was made to do for now and just enjoy the fashion scene.
So i was invited by Limaran as a guest since she won tickets from Singapore Airline, no idea how she did it, I'm happy i had to experience a fashion show first hand and rubbing shoulder with Singapore finest socialites, literally because it was so packed! I'm glad i had 2 beautiful people, Limaran and Jason, to spend the evening with whom i know and meet Nellie this really chic street style fashion blogger.
Back on the red carpet..
What better way to watch the first opening show designed by someone born in Singapore. Yes! he finally decided to call New York his home but still a true blue Asian from Napalese parentage, only 35 year old and making headlines designing fashion wears for big names in America. I know he works out, he came running out on stage with a simple white tee that bare his tanned skin and define arms, i can tell half of the ladies were swooning over how charismatic he was after making his last turn to thank everyone. : )
Enjoy the photos below, i stole some photos from the Audi Fashion Festival Facebook because my camera did not do any justice of Prabal work of art!
Some of the item found in the goody bag! i was digging every corner of the bag for a morsel of food or chocolate but found a cute Sally Hansen nail polish love the nude pink colour and ample of notebook to start sketching my latest fashion collection.. hehe
Also love the detail on my jumpsuit, the sequin gave me a reason to accessorise minimally and the cut was so comfortable, it makes looking classy a breeze. A jumpsuit should be a women staple, some basic ones that you can just throw yourself into during lazy days and some fancy one to attend anywhere special.
