Stylish Workout Gear with RBX Yoga Pants

Stylish Workout Gear

Stylish Workout Gear by veggielawyer

I am going to be perfectly honest, I don't work out.  There was a time in my life that I did, but then real life smacked me in the face and I ran out of time.  However, I think I have come to a point where it is a necessity if I want to keep eating pizza and drinking beer at the current rate.  Additionally, I pulled a muscle while reaching for my Diet Coke when I was watching a Lifetime movie on the couch this weekend...true story.

However, I am starting from scratch here.  I kid you not...I do not own a pair of real sneakers.  I am assuming the glittery Kate Spade keds do not count.

  • I guess I should start with the basics and some body coverings.  These RBX Yoga Pants are super duper cute!  And they come in a ton of different colors and patterns...and are a lot less than Victoria's Secret ones that I have come to love (and use only for pajama pants).  And RBX is offering 25% off all purchases and free shipping on orders over $50 with code Active25.
  • This Tank is hilarious and I think it is fitting for my most recent fitness journey.
  • Like I said, I don't own real sneakers, these Nike Flex Runners might just be cute enough for me.
  • You've got to keep hydrated, and you might as well do it with a fancy shmancy S'well Water Bottle (options).
  • I hear healthy people do yoga so, I guess a Yeti Yoga mat (options) would be something I need.
  • I plan to try and work out in the comfort of my own home, but if I needed to venture to a gym this Vera Bradley Sport Duffle would be on my list.
  • And let's get to the thing that probably no one needs, but is just so freakin' cute!  This Tory Burch Fit Bit Cover is totally unnecessary, but I feel like I want it.  I guess I would also need a FitBit?

What are some of your workout essentials?

May Ipsy Review

May 15 Ipsy 1 May 15 Ipsy 2
Urban Decay Glide on Lip Pencil (0.8 g ~ $13): How can you not love an Urban Decay lip liner?  It goes on super smooth and prevents lipstick feathering.  I also love that it's colorless, so that I don't have have more than one!

 Bella Pierre Mineral Gel Eyeliner (full size, $15):  This liner went on smooth, was super pigmented, and stayed on.  However, I felt like you needed to be an expert to put it on.  There was absolutely not "play time" with the liner.  If you screw have use makeup remover on the whole eye and start over.

Nux Face Cleansing and Makeup Removing Gel (15 mL ~ $12): I wear black eyeliner and black mascara everyday.  Therefore, I often wake up with some of it still on my face.  With this removing gel, that didn't happen!

Bare Republic Naturals Mineral Face Sunscreen (0.5 oz ~$4):  I am in desperate need of a good facial sunscreen.  This fit the bill. Not greasy, waterproof....and kind of smelled like a summery coconut drink.

Luxie Beauty Blending Brush ($12):  I can always use another makeup brush!

Not a bad haul at $56.  And I LOVE the lip liner, sunscreen, and makeup removing gel. I won't have too many eDivv trades to make this month!

The Dress Hunt

IMG_1310 IMG_1329 IMG_1314 IMG_1315 IMG_1322 IMG_1345

I first met this dress over a year ago when I popped into a Lilly store on a whim.  However, I didn't want a whim to lead to a $200 purchase.  I was able to resist.  But, then I couldn't get the dress out of my head.  I dreamed about a tampon commercial style dream with me running through a field of buttercups in this dress, or out and about getting coffee.  So, as usual, I turned to Poshmark and Instagran to save me some money.  Instagram won the battle.
