SO SPRING IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER...(we hope).
And we all know that Spring = newness. The www.gymtote.co.uk team have compiled our essentials for the coming months.
SILKE HAIR ACCESSORIES
Did you know that silk is super kind to hair and can reduce split ends, as well maintaining shine and decreasing frizz? Step in Silke London hair bands and wraps. Totally worth the investment. £26 from https://www.silkelondon.com/collections/shop-the-collection
NEW BED LINEN
A touch of fresh bed linen is just what the doctor ordered. We love these pink cotton sheets from H&M. We'll be buying the pillowcases to add a pop of colour to our favourite white set. From £8 at http://www2.hm.com/en_gb/productpage.0251911015.html#Light%20pink
ADIDAS WOW LEGGINGS
When do we not need new leggings?! These are such a great colour for the spring and summer and the fit is fantastic. £64.95 from https://thesportsedit.com/products/adidas-ultimate-long-tight-core-red-pink-b47006
Indoor or outdoor use, we are obsessed with fur slides! These ASOS ones are super versatile. Team with a frayed jean, a black legging or your favourite PJs. £22 from http://www.asos.com/asos/asos-fluffie-faux-fur-sliders
REESE LEATHER GYMTOTE
Investing in one luxe item a season is always a good move. The GymTote Reese boasts more than just good looks. Made from super-soft Italian Nappa leather, she features breathable compartments with water resistant linings for shoes, kit and meal prep, an upright water bottle holder, a section for handbag essentials and multiple smaller slip and zip pockets. With her cross body strap she is also perfect for travel. £365 from www.gymtote.co.uk
Struggling to sleep? Feeling stressed? This is one of our favourite essentials oils - it reminds us of balmy, heady summer nights in the South of France. Apply to your pulse points before bed or burn in an oil burner. It's worth paying for the pure stuff, as the diluted ones just don't have the same impact. £22.50 from https://www.nealsyardremedies.com/aromatherapy/aromatherapy-oils-and-blends/essential-oils/2170.html
So there you have it! New season essentials sorted.
