Lorna Jane Sportswear






all images: active in style
 
Good afternoon!
This week I have really got into my new healthy lifestyle and fitness regime, especially with my holiday coming up at Easter. I use instagram for my inspiration and the Australian girls always look amazing. I had noticed their brightly coloured sports bras and inspirational tops and it wasn't until last week that I finally discovered where they were from.
 
The brand I am focusing on is Lorna Jane, an Australian sportswear brand for women. There is also a UK website set up with GBP prices and free delivery on orders over £60! Their range is amazing and they stock everything from shorts to workout jackets to socks! I especially love their motivational vests and brightly coloured and patterned sports bras. Now I don't know about you but I have a huge burst of motivation when I buy new work out clothes and every now and then I feel it's fine to do so. I know where my next order for workout clothing will be! They even offer 15% off on your first order, so what's not to love. If you want to check out their range and place an order go to activeinstyle.
 
Do you feel motivated after buying new gym wear? Have you tried any Lorna Jane clothing?
I would love to hear your responses.
Lots of love, Laura

Garnier Ultimate Blends Review

 


 
Happy Friday everyone!
A few weeks ago I received a rather unexpected package in the post. I opened it to reveal a lovely black box with 3 beautifully presented products inside. The products are part of Garnier's ultimate blends* range of haircare. My box, which was specifically matched to my hair type, contained  the silky smoother shampoo, conditioner and 1 minute polishing scrub. I was so intrigued about the polishing scrub as I hadn't seen any other hair products on the market like this one! In case your wondering my hair type is highlighted, prone to split ends but thick. The silky smoother range claims to be tailor made for mid-long hair with split ends.
 
I decided to give the products a good 2 week trial to test them out fairly. Now I must say my initial thoughts were pretty good. The smell of the products is amazing. I'm not sure how the other products in the range smell but these are describe as 'Madagascan vanilla milk and Brazilian Papaya extracts'. Which smell so exotic yet naturally beautiful. The products themselves are lovely and make my hair feel really clean and help to get rid of any build up.
As I said before the polishing scrub was the product which really intrigued me. When I opened it and squirted it out into my palm I was surprised to see small little beads, similar to that of a facial bead scrub in the product. They claim to smooth split ends although I was worried that they would actually get stuck in my scalp and be really difficult to get out. But the product proved to be the opposite. I left it on for around 2 minutes and when I rinsed it off my hair was so smooth. I really noticed a difference when drying my hair, noticing how much more manageable it was.
 
I would definitely recommend these products and I am keen to try other products in the range. You can buy these from boots  for around £3 each and they are currently on the 3 for 2 offer!
 
Lots of love, Laura x
