Go Co-Ord Crazy this Summer

13 Jul

I’ve been seeing a lot of great co-ord outfits this summer. I think the reason I’ve never looked into getting some co-ordinate pieces for myself is that there are lots of crop top and shorts combos out there, and I haven’t got the figure for it! But there are still some fab co-ords out there that I totally love.

Fashion Forward Joggers

11 Jul

There are a few items of clothing I love but can’t pull off. Jumpsuits are one (I have yet to find petite ones that flatter!) and printed joggers are another. But oh how I love them! The last time I tried some on I looked sadly in the mirrors and realised that maybe I am also too short for these beautiful bottoms. But as someone who seems to be frequenting sport shops more than high street fashion retailers these days, printed joggers really appeal to the relaxed, slouchy sports luxe lover in me.

Steal her Style- Lily Allen at Glastonbury 2014

28 Jun

We love a bit of Lily Allen here at Wardrobe and this week she’s been enjoying herself at Glastonbury, both on and off the stage. That hair, the pink mesh, I love it!

She’s no stranger to the festival though, and wore a casual, fun outfit off stage to soak up the atmosphere.

Get the Perfect Glow at Glöanna’s Yoga Run in London

25 Jun

Glöanna Yoga Run series

As a keen runner, I’m always keeping my eye out for interesting races to take part in and Glöanna, the world’s first 5k Yoga Run certainly fits the bill!

After the success of last year’s event, Glöanna is back in London on Saturday 19 July in Battersea Park. You’ll start with a 5k run, which will be followed by a 45-minute vinyasa flow yoga session, divided between classes at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. It’s the perfect event for all abilities, so it doesn’t matter if you’ve only just started running or if you’re not a dedicated yogi!

Glöanna Yoga Run series

The Glöanna event is being held in partnership with their lead sponsor Sweaty Betty and your efforts on the day will be rewarded with a Sweaty Betty athlete workout vest.

The reason why Glöanna has really piqued my interest is because they are offering so much on the day. They’ve really made an effort to make the event special, fun and truly rewarding. There’s a pre-race shot of prosecco and live music on the course. And before you start stretching out your muscles, you can enjoy some coconut water and matcha tea, which is on my list of things to try (it’s a concentrated form of green tea, so think of it as all the health benefits of green tea x10). And after you’ve relaxed in child’s pose, you can enjoy a post yoga run treat of sushi, fruit, even more prosecco and dance the afternoon away to a live DJ set!

Glöanna Yoga Run series 2014, London

There are so many reasons why I think everyone should sign up for this. Battersea Park is a gorgeous, gorgeous place to run and a 5K is a nice little distance to do. I always feel like I’ve had a good workout after a 5K. Secondly, though I’d still class myself as a beginner, I really enjoy yoga, especially my classes at Sweaty Betty, and it’s a great way to supplement running. Cross training is really important for runners, and yoga is a great way to strengthen your core, avoid injury and stretch out tight muscles.

I think the organizers of Glöanna and their sponsors Sweaty Betty understand this, and they clearly understand the importance of prosecco too! You won’t be rushing home to have a shower after enjoying the exercise, as you’ll want to stick around for some tasty food and a party atmosphere. It’s basically my perfect Saturday!

There are three different types of tickets you can get for the event- ClassicGlö, LuxGlö and GoldGlö. Each tickets gives you entry to the yoga run, but you can choose a more premium ticket for added benefits. Early bird entry is available right now (until sold out) so get in quick if you want to save. Currently, the early bird ClassicGlö ticket is £41. All Glöanna ticket prices for London are up on their website right now.

And if you use the code SB15 at the checkout, you can get 15% off your ticket.

I’m so sad that I can’t make it, so you all have to go and tell me what it was like! I look forward to any future Glöanna events though and hopefully will be signing up to the next one!

Will you be going to this year’s yoga run?

Dazzle at the Festivals this Summer

22 Jun

Ever since I had some beautiful glittery make-up done by Miss Lippy, I’ve been looking at products available on the high street to replicate the look! I think it’s a fun look to sport on a fun night out or at the music festivals this year.

I found some glitter pots in the Topshop make-up collection which would be perfect to sparkle in the crowds!

You can also get the glitter pots in silver and black. I think the Periwink pot would be perfect with this sequin effect nail polish from Barry M.

If I was going to a festival this summer (which I’m not *sobs*) I would definitely have some fun and play around with some glittery designs on my face. Don’t forget your body glue!

What is your go to festival make-up?

One Love with Gypsy East

13 Jun

I first discovered Gypsy East at the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer launch. I spent a little while looking through the amazing jewellery they had on offer, wishing I had some extra cash with me! Ever since I’ve been keeping an eye on their Facebook page and their hand-crafted pieces, created from crystals and other items they’ve sourced from their travels.

It was on their Facebook page that I also learnt about the One Love Project.

As I mentioned before, the three girls who run Gypsy East have travel together, drawing inspiration from their journeys. It was after they travelled to India that they launced the One Love Project, set up to create and maintain a creative space for children in Pushkar, as well as providing them with clean water and meals. A local teacher also offers educational support and help with homework.

To help raise money for the project, the girls have created the “One Love Pendant.” All the proceeds from sale will go towards running the project.

As I’d become a fan of Gypsy East and thought it was a worthy cause, I popped over to Facebook and bought it. And I absolutely love it.

I love the length of the necklace and it goes with everything.

If you want to find out more about where the money will go or if you want to buy a pendant yourself, visit the One Love Project Facebook page. You can also find out other ways to donate money, or where the girls will be next. They’ll be setting up stalls at various festivals this summer where you’ll be able to buy Gypsy East jewels and the pendant.

Tell us what you think about the pendant in the comments.
