RUNA Athleisure Wear

A few weeks back, I was given the opportunity to try some clothing from RUNA, an athleisure brand putting an emphasis on ” premium fabrics, cutting-edge prints and unparalleled comfort.” The range includes a selection of leggings, dresses and unisex t-shirts and sweatshirts, made from high performance fabrics.

I received a pair of Seef Pannel Leggings Dubai Gloaming (£33) and a matching Unisex Sweatshirt (£50). Both items are incredibly soft and comfortable. I generally wear a size 14… View Post

Sports Bra Review: Hunkemöller Doutzen Sport

It’s been a while since I’ve tried out a different style of sports bra, so I was pleased when Dutch brand, Hunkemöller, got in touch to invite me to try out a product from their Doutzen Sport line.

And in this colour, it even blends beautifully well with East London graffiti… From the outside, it looks like a fairly standard sports bag. But open it up and that’s where the magic begins. The bag is carefully divided into various compartments, all with a… View Post
