Fitness Fridays: Hoo-Rag

I was asked by the people at Hoo-rag if I would like to try their product. When I went over to the website to check is out I was immediately happy. I am a headband, bandana, scarf gal. Always have been. Especially lately because I cut my hair last month and when I wear it curly its too short for a ponytail in the back.

I must say, I like the Hoo rag. It’s a seamless cylinder of fabric that can be worn in a variety of ways.

They have a variety of colors and designs on their website. Prices start at $14.95.

Thrifty Thursdays: DIY Ways to Wear a Men’s Button-Up Shirt

I decided to post this after a friend of mine and I had a discussion yesterday about what to do during a “walk of shame”. A quick google search brought me to this and I love it. Even though I don’t have a bf or a potential “walk of shame” partner, I am going to go to the thrift store and try this out on a large old men’s button-up anyway. Enjoy!

Guest Post: Athletic Wear-From the Gym to the Runway

This post was written by Keelia and Tamra over at Filthy Chic. Thanks ladies! I was not compensated by the companies that are featured in this post.

Looking through most of the magazines a current trend and one that will go in to the fall is athletic wear. No longer is it just a place for the gym, but now you can see it everywhere from the office, to running errands and a night out.  The styles are the same, but the fabrics, textures and prints used are what make it appropriate for these different occasions. Here’s our take on athletic wear from the gym to our everyday lives.

I will be featuring blogs that I like or certain posts from the week that I enjoyed. First up Blogilates

I love this blog, I think the author is so cool and cute. I watch her videos on youtube as well. This is a fitness blog and has a very fresh and young approach, which is great for me because I lose interest in most blogs pretty easily. I suggest you check her out!

Thrifty Thursdays: Old T-Shirt Project

I got this idea from Blogilates. Check out her post here.

Materials

– Old t-shirt

– Pair of scissors

TIME: 15 min

DIRECTIONS:

1. Cut away the crew neck the sleeves and the bottom. For the sleeves, you will want to start at the shoulder (you decide how thick you want the strap to be) and cut straight into the chest area. Then curve. If you curve the whole way, it’s gonna look weird on you.

2. Clean up the edges. Decide how low you want the neckline to be.

3. Turn the shirt to the back and make a narrower racerback. Then cut a deep V.

4. Take the bottom edge of the shirt that you cut off and cut the seams off so that you’re just left with fabric. Stretch it out as much as possible.

5. About 2″ from the bottom of the V tie a know with one edge of the noodle.
Wind it round ‘n round, then double knot it at the other end too. Cut off loose ends.

6. To make this a hi-low top, lay your shirt sideways and flat. Then starting at about 4-5″ from the front center of the shirt start diagonally cutting down til you reach the back. You’ll want to cut straight for a bit at the front center then start creating the diagonal or else you’re gonna get a weird arrow shape with you open up.

Here is the final product:

Pretty Girl Fit: Femme Fitale Fitness Gloves

small_967835987_ZRRAN-M[1].jpgWhen I got into working out with kettlebells, I started getting blisters from holding them. I’m a sucker for all things zebra print, so a quick google search led me to the Femme Fitale Fitness website. Score! They have cute fitness gloves for women who like to work out and still be pretty. Here’s the description from the website:

Work out looking like a girl in these feminine, finger-less zebra print fitness gloves for weight lifting, spin classes, ellipticals, rowing machines, Pilates, yoga, wheelchair use, etc.

**Full genuine leather palm with sueded grip.  Double layer palm reduces bulk yet still protects hands from callouses while working out.
**Adjustable velcro strap for better fit, comfort wrapped for protection against rubbing.
**NOTE: SO comfortable…definitely not the average fitness glove!!

Sizing: Measure all the way around palm at knuckles…XS (approx 6″-6.5″), S (approx 6.5″-7.5″), M (approx 7.5″-8″)

If in between sizes…we recommend ordering the smaller size (in fitness gloves only).

Fits differently than golf gloves (Size XS in fitness = size S in golf, size S in fitness = size M in golf, size M in fitness = size L in golf)

$19.99
