Hello, it’s the New Year! Feat. Yandy Activewear

Happy New Year everyone!

So, with every new year, comes the same age old question- what are your new years resolutions?

I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I’ve mastered the art of successfully completing my resolutions just quite yet. I honestly cannot think of a single time when I’ve completely followed through with what I resolved to do at the beginning of every year. Therefore, this year, I’ve decided to pen them down, right here, on my blog, so I can actually have something to check back on and keep myself oriented to my goals.

Hence, here are my 2018 New Year’s Resolutions:

  1. Be cleaner: Put things away after using them, organize things better (organized mess does not count), clean things off after I use them (eg. my new laptop is completely white so I wanna keep it looking clean and brand new for as long as possible!
  2. Be better at responding to people: Be it for work, school, social media, modeling- I suck at responding to my messages!!! I have tons and tons of unanswered emails, texts, DMs, comments, and I really need to get better at this before I start losing more work opportunities, friends, and loved ones.
  3. Learn how to say NO: Last year, I basically said ‘yes’ to everyone. This year, I’m gonna only say yes to people who care for me, who aligned with my values and brand. This way, I will be able to give my all to these people, and have more time to spend with the people I love.
  4. Lastly, but most importantly, I NEED TO KEEP FIT! And by this, I mean that I have to work out and eat well consistently. Gone are my dancing days where I could skip working out and eat whatever I want and still get by with a (kinda) toned body. No excuses, no more quitting halfway! With this being my main goal of 2018, you  can only imagine how thrilled I was to be able to work with one of my fave companies, Yandy ( @yandy on Instagram) to showcase their activewear line! Nothing motivates me to work out more than cute activewear and workout gear!

Before I get into the activewear outfits, here’s a quick rundown on what Yandy is! Yandy is a brand famous for their specialty women’s apparel, swimwear, lingerie, and activewear. As mentioned on their website, “The Yandy Girl lives out loud and is unapologetically connected with her mind, her body, and her own brand of sexy.”

Check out their lingerie, and activewear (click on the hyperlinked words!)

Here are a few pieces that I highly recommend you add to your workout wardrobe:

Yandy Cardio Romper

First up is this uber cute cardio romper! When I first saw this piece on their site, I knew I had to have it, because, why aren’t cardio rompers a thing yet?! Its so unique, its easy to wear, you don’t have to fuss over matching your sports bras and leggings, and its suitable for a lot of kinds of work outs! It personally reminded me of my leotards I used to wear for dance, but you could definitely wear it for other types of cardio too!

Next up, are the Power Gym Leggings, paired with the Yandy Multi-colored Sports Bra in Green! Who doesn’t love themselves a basic sports bra and black legging combo?!

Mesh leggings are a must have in the world of activewear- they’re super practical, comfortable, and trendy at the same time. The number of designs one can have of different mesh leggings is basically infinite, and this is definitely a pair, with the mesh cut out right under the waistband of the leggings, that you need to add to your legging collection.

Similarly to how there are so many different ways leggings can have mesh inserts and cutouts on them, sports bras in the recent years have been coming in all kinds of strappy designs! This Yandy Multi-colored Sports bra has an adorable back strappy detail, which is not only fancy but actually provides you with very good support while you work out! It’s material is highly breathable, so you can sweat it out while working out and still stay fresh and dry while at it!

Lastly, this is the same set as before, but this time I’m wearing the sports bra in Grey! Which brings me to an activewear tip: if you find something that fits you well, get it in the different colors available! Your early morning self will thank you for that.

Something super cool about these leggings- it has pockets!!! I’m absolutely living for sports wear that has pockets so that I can have somewhere to put my phone and music on me while I am working out. Don’t you feel the same?

Oh and also, how cute is this Yandy.com bag?!

And lastly, my favorite thing about Yandy Activewear is probably how versatile it is. Wear this set for some high intensity cardio:

So there, those are my new year’s resolutions and my recommendations for some curte sportswear from Yandy to motivate you to workout if you’re like me and need a little extra something to help you get started in your fitness journey! Hopefully the next time I’m modeling some activewear, I’ll have some actual abs 🙂 hehe. Thank you so much to Yandy for hooking me up with these cool pieces, June for being the most amazing photog (weren’t the pictures just all so good?!), and Edwin for giving me that glow and for your talented styling!

Once again, happy new years everyone! Let me know if you have any similar resolutions, or what your personal goals are for this year! As usual, shoot me any questions you have as well! Thanks for reading. x

Love,

Valerie
