Raise your hand if you just got paid and you're ready to treat yourself. Lately, I feel like I can only justify making purchases that will have a positive impact on my self-care. When I buy a new yoga mat or a new pair of leggings, even though the price tags can be hefty, I take comfort in knowing that I can wear those things over and over again and they won't begin to deteriorate. Additionally, when I have items I'm excited to use, it motivates me to fit in a few extra workouts, and who doesn't want that?
This week, I'm craving some fun products like new leggings, a conditioner that's making my dry shampoo take a seat, and a nostalgic item from one of my all-time-favorite brands. Keep scrolling to see what I'm adding to my cart this week.
I'm incredibly loyal to Sweaty Betty. The UK Brand makes leggings that lift your butt, pull in your stomach, and can withstand any workout, and this pair is no exception. I can guarantee this piece will become a staple in my workout wardrobe.
Do you work out multiple days a week? Do you avoid washing your hair like the plague? Do you love products with natural ingredients? If you answered yes to two out of three of those questions, you need to try this conditioner. I work out six times per week and wash my hair one to two times per week, which means that I'm always on the hunt for products that can gently soothe my scalp and remove dry-shampoo buildup. Enter Briogeo's Scalp Revival line. I promise that you won't regret adding this to your haircare routine.
I love a workout top with a high neck, and this option from Nike is no exception. The minimal design tailored with the flattering racerback shape is going to be perfect for intense workouts or a leisurely hike with my dogs. The high neck makes my chest feel super secure and doesn't allow for any extra bounce, which I don't have time for, so I can see myself wearing this item on repeat.
I drink a lot of water, but this wasn't always the case. I used to struggle to get more than eight ounces per day out of laziness. I tricked myself into drinking more water by always keeping cool water bottles on hand that I actually want to take with me everywhere I go. I love this bottle from Corkcicle because the size is quite large, so I don't have to refill it as often, and the copper color is beautiful.
This jacket is nostalgic in all the right ways. It reminds me of the windbreakers my parents wore in the '80s that I still try to steal from them whenever I'm home. This piece is classic Nike, and I have to have it.
I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Free People is one of my favorite places to shop for athleisure pieces, especially tops. The prices are reasonable, and the styles are awesome. Right now I'm loving this muscle tank that's business in the front and party in the back.
All of these pieces are created with performance-worthy fabric but are trendy enough to be worn outside the gym. Right now I'm all about this ruffle top because I can see myself wearing it to yoga class with leggings or pairing it with skinny jeans for drinks or dinner. Versatile pieces like this are always worth investing in.
Finally, after six years of living in L.A., I'm ready to embrace some of the more woo-woo practices. I'm starting with crystals. I'd love to add this gorgeous black obsidian crystal to my collection because the stone is said to help you release any negative energy or imbalances in your life. That's something we could all use a little more of, right?
