I am soooo behind in things I wanted to post, so I figured better late than never. On the Blended Blog a couple weeks ago we started a new series: What's in my... You can check the original link here and see what all the amazing ladies posted and then the great link ups too. Because I have officially made going to the gym part of my weekly routine, I thought it would be fun to share what's in my gym bag instead of my handbag, also I'm a rule-breaking rebel-rouser at heart, just ask my mom, so it makes sense that I deviate.
I purchased my lulu bag secondhand somewhere online and it has been the best lulu purchase to date. Except for the leggings (here) I have been using lately for workouts. Gotta love side pockets for cell phones. So everything I can fit into my gym bag is: running shoes, workout clothes, towel, water bottle and shampoo and conditionner. My favourite part of going to the gym is the steam room after, so a towel and hair stuff is a must. Speaking of the gym...I have been doing really good lately, incorporating weights into my weekly workouts at least twice a week since February. One problem is that I like challenging myself, so I've been lifting heavy...and well, now I hulk out of all of my shirts. I suppose it isn't a bad problem to have, but I will have to do some major work this summer doing more reps with lower weights so I can get rid of the bulk.
Can we talk about the shampoo and conditioner in my bag for a second? I received these products free as part of a campaign through BrandBacker and I gotta say, I'm in love. They sent me the Charcoal with Citrus Oil Purifying Shampoo, Conditionner and Deep Conditionner and well, I highly doubt I'll be using anything other than these HASK products for awhile. Why am I so enraptured? First off it's the scent: fresh lemon. My husband even commented on how nice my hair smelled and he has never complimented me on that before. Secondly is how soft my hair felt after using them. Like silky and smooth soft, couldn't keep my hands off my hair soft. Lastly it is the longevity of the wash. I could easily go 3 days without even thinking about applying a dry shampoo, which is amazing in itself.
I wish I could capture the smell in a picture. That's gotta be a thing someday, because this is the first smell I would send your way. The smell is so good that I want to try the other shampoos available just to see how they compare.
I like to try a lot of different products and once in awhile I come across something that goes immediately into the rotation of keepers. The Hask Charcoal with Citrus Oil Purifying line is a fine example of just that.
Wanna play along with us? Join in the link up fun on the following dates as we share our what's in our....just wait to see what I hide in my storage room. Muhahhahaahhahaha.
