We're offered a wide range of cutting-edge workouts that come with their specific set of challenges, from the trampoline to soul cycle, hot yoga and Zumba; each fitness class requires high-performance gear that ticks all the boxes. Providing the right accoutrement for each workout can have a significant impact to our experience from a sartorial and practical perspective. Scroll down below and equip yourself only with the right stuff. 


SOUL CYCLE 

When it comes to a physically demanding class like soul cycle it’s important to opt for breathable separates. For example a quality sports bra paired with matching leggings can relieve some of the burden of excessive sweating. For socks, try sweat absorbing material which will motivate you to finish the class minus any unwelcome distractions. After the workout, wear a hoodie to allow the muscles to cool down gradually. 

MARATHON GIRL 

More than any other athletic leisure activity, running requires some deal of wardrobe preparation. As with any other outdoor workout you need to equip with an all-weather zip up that you can don over your tank top. Try a technical long-sleeve top that can easily be removed during cool down. For leggings, choose a pair with compression past the ankles for a speed run or a longer marathon. 

HOT YOGA 

In a class like hot yoga you know you’re going to sweat a ton so it’s important to wear breathable clothing like soul cycle but also loose enough that will allow you to strengthen, and unwind. Start with a tank and leggings and throw on a loose t-shirt on top that you can take off when it starts to get too hot for comfort. 

DANCE CLASS

Whether it’s Zumba, Barrecore or a fun hip-hop infused class weight-shifting movements that put the core to work demand a particular set of clothing. For example a leotard with built-in support and the sense of freedom to move as you please. For bottoms a pair of leggings, ballerina tights and sweats will do the trick. Remember to dance barefoot, with rubber soled socks or trainers to avoid slippery floors.

This week, our Influencer Focus is dedicated to Sandra Diola. If there's anything new to know about beauty, the South Floridian based model features it on her Instagram account. Whether it's a lip tint, enriching hair products or highlighters, you can find them on @sandradrifter. Her understated wardrobe, an enviable mix of playful designers like Ganni from YOOX, pieces from Urban Outfitters and streamlined items by COS, is another reason why we scroll through her feed religiously. We caught up with the busy influencer and aspiring graphic designer to talk style, wellness essentials and designing her boyfriend's album cover. 


What compelled you to start your own Instagram account? 

I’m from the Philippines, so after moving to Florida, I started my Instagram account because I wanted to be more connected and present. Which is funny, actually, because we end up not being as present with social media. 

What do you enjoy most about the creative process? 

I enjoy changes in direction and having to invent something new. There’s this feeling of happiness in the middle of a shoot when I know I'm in the zone creatively. It makes me feel even more excited to see the outcome. 

What are the challenges and also the benefits of being an influencer? 

I guess the challenge would probably be staying true to myself. This means working with brands that align with my ethos, the ones I truly love and want to promote, especially the smaller ones. I guess the benefits would be allowing these smaller brands to be more visible and having the platform to talk about real things that matter to me. Issues that transcend the beautifully styled imagery. 

What are your non-negotiables regarding your wellness routine? 

MOISTURISING. That’s non-negotiable. 

How would you describe your personal style? Do you have any favourite brands? 

My style is very easy going. I enjoy wearing colourful outfits that convey elements of nostalgia, which why I love shopping vintage. Some of my favourite designers are Cos, Orseund Iris, and I recently have fallen in love with Ganni from YOOX. I also adore Albisia for jewellery. It's a small brand from my hometown that makes styles by hand. 

Which are your staples when it comes to dressing up in the morning? 

I'm used to being out all day studying or running to castings and meetings, so I always bring a sweater or cardigan for all-day, for maximum cosiness. Plus, it adds that hygge element to my outfit. 

You're always travelling. Which one of your recent destinations was the most memorable to you and why? 

I think my most memorable destination will forever be Cuba. The city's architecture, the colours and sceneries were reminiscent of another era. I'll never forget it. 
What are you working on at the moment? What are your plans this year? 

Apart from growing my work on my platform and modelling, I'm doing graphic design. I’m aiming to make album covers for my boyfriend's music project ‘Pleasure Wars’, finish my book and indulge in more self-care when I find the time.

For the past few seasons, we have noticed the charcoal appearing just about everywhere. From our healthcare routines to our dental care, facecare even as a detergent for our dishes. There have been numerous studies and articles anyway about the unequivocal benefits of using charcoal in our everyday routines. So where can you use charcoal and which are the individual benefits? Don't worry we have you covered. Just read on below for more tips: 


PERFECT SMILE 

Charcoal has amazing whitening properties for teeth. It can really accelerate the process by removing persistent stains and discolourations. But be careful you cannot use it more than a few times per week. Also, if you choose to use it don't be taken aback the first time when you apply it as it will make your entire mouth black. Just rinse thoroughly after brushing and it should leave you with a white sparkling smile. 

DISHWEAR

Just like with dental care, charcoal has amazing benefits for cleaning dishes. Just add a small spoonful of raw charcoal in your regular detergent and you'll notice instant amazing results. Works great not only for removing stains but also for making stainless steel look extra shiny! Double whammy, more for your money! 

FOOD & DRINKS 

You may have noticed this trend emerging last year of adding a bit of charcoal to our nutrition. And for good reason. Activated charcoal prevents cellular damage to kidneys and liver. It also helps the body flush out the toxins and chemicals that cause the damage. Expect charcoal lemonades, charcoal lattes even pitch black charcoal pancakes! 

FACIAL ROUTINE 

Probably the most popular lifestyle use of activated charcoal is for our facial routines. Opt for a charcoal-infused face cleanser or scrub to remove impurities from your face. Add a charcoal mask which works wonders on black spots and age discolourations. Just make sure to moisturize thoroughly after application for the best results! 

Are you ready to add a bit of charcoal in your everyday routine? Check out our expert edit below!

This week Shopcade turns to influencer and author of the blog 'Ninety Percent Stardust' Rachel Reaney, for an instant fashion and beauty boost. Her blog chronicles her daily life, trends, travels and enviable skin beauty treatments. We caught up with the busy blogger, influencer and Communications professional to talk about creativity, morning routines and exotic destinations. 


What compelled you to start your own blog and Instagram account? 

I've always chosen photography and fashion as a medium to express myself and Instagram provides the perfect visual platform to do that. Multiple accounts on the platform have not only inspired me personally but have inspired me to start creating and sharing my own content and things that I love.  

What do you enjoy most about the creative process? 

For me, I really enjoy and find it relaxing to edit photos. I use VSCO to add the final touches to my photos such as adding a vintage grain or warmer tones using a filter. I use an app called Mosaico to plan the layout of my content. 

What are the challenges and also the benefits of being a freelance content creator and influencer? 

Luckily, I already work in social media so I feel the combination of working with brands as both a consultant and an influencer is very useful, as you can really understand both sides of the equation and how they can partner together in a collaborative way. 

What are your non-negotiables regarding your wellness routine? 

I'm a skincare junkie and for me feeling good about myself extends to how my skin is behaving. I try to eat lots of vegetables and drink as much water as I can but once a week I'll set aside some time to have some me-only pamper time. I'm currently a fan of beauty brands including Le Labo, The Ouai, Glossier, Nuxe and Rodin. 

How would you describe your personal style? Do you have any favourite brands? 

For me, I aspire to look low-key yet effortlessly put together. When it comes to my wardrobe I like to mix pieces from high-end designers on Yoox Netaporter such as Acne Studios, Staud and Nanuska with high street staples from Topshop, H&M or the occasional vintage find. 

Which are your staples when it comes to dressing up in the morning? It's important to me to be comfortable in whatever I put on. 

I tend to favour a good pair of jeans paired with a nude top or ruffled sleeved blouse. I'll then dress this up with gold jewellery and a statement bag. 

You're always travelling. Which one of your recent destinations was the most memorable to you and why? 

It sounds like a cliche but Oia in Santorini is one of the most beautiful and photogenic places I've ever been to. My next bucket-list destination is a hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia. 

What are you working on at the moment? Do you have any specific goals for 2018? 

Keep on improving! I've recently upgraded my camera and am excited to take my photos to the next level. On a personal note, my goal is also to enjoy the little moments and joys that life brings - most often or not these aren't planned!

Christy Teigen's Best Kept secret is coconut oil and she's not the only coconut connoisseur. You may have tried to employ coconut oil in the kitchen or even enjoy it as part of your bath shower routine. However, the healing and nourishing benefits of coconut have made it an all-around beauty favourite. Try it to moisturise your skin and remove your make up or add a few spoonfuls of coconut butter in a smoothie or dessert. There are many ways in which you can incorporate coconut into your daily routine. Now you can discover how you can make the most out of nature's purest ingredient to improve your wellness and nutrition. 

BODY OIL 

Apply the solid creamy textured coconut oil and get the perfect light moisturiser. Just slather a small portion on your body after leaving the shower and it will be enough to give you soft skin that glows. Add a few drops of peppermint or almond oil and get the royal spa treatment. 

HAIR MASK 

While in the shower apply a coconut oil mask and leave it for 15 minutes or longer if you have dry and damaged hair. For a more natural approach try melting your coconut oil by placing the jar under hot water. The mask will instantly moisture hour tired locks and give them extra shine and endurance. 

UNDER THE EYES 

Our skin under the eyes is quite thin and delicate which is why it's the first facial part that shows signs of ageing. It's also very prone to fine lines, puffiness and dark circles. If you want to avoid spending a hefty sum of money on a very costly cream then invest in coconut oil. After all, Emily Weiss founder of Glossier admitted that more expensive doesn't necessarily mean more effective. Attention: Coconut oil is comedogenic so be aware if you're suffering from acne. 

HEALTHY FAT 

Although coconut oil is perfect for those late night stir fries when it comes to nutrition go for coconut butter. It's thicker in texture which makes it perfect to spread on toast. You can also use it when making healthy smoothies or as topping for berries. Both coconut oil and coconut butter have both nutritional and metabolism-boosting properties that are amazing for your immune system and for your skin. They are though high in nutritional value, so don't overdo it. 

Are you ready to incorporate coconut oil into your everyday routine? Shop the best coconut oil infused products from our edit below and add points to your wellness.

One of the most classic resolutions for the New Year is always fitness related. A few of us want to shed a few pounds, others want to get toned then there are those that simply want to feel more healthy and happy. (Exercise releases all of those serotonins - the happy hormones after all!) But like a lot of things in life thankfully no one size fits all. 


The Runner 

You may be a die-hard running fan. You like exercising outdoors exploring new sceneries and meeting new people whilst enjoying the exercise. 

Bouncing Bunny 

You prioritise any aerobic activity over anything else. You enjoy running too but you want the element of fun into it. You indulge in Zumba, typical aerobics classes, hula hoops, trampoline classes even a hip-hop class. 

The Static 

You enjoy working each muscle group at your own pace and you want a sense of slight rhythm to it without sweating your entire fluid intake on your mat. Exercise for you is also a time to reflect on your day meditate and relax. You will mostly benefit from yoga, pilates, barre and meditation. 

The Combat Heroine 

You want to seriously improve your overall fitness levels, get rippes and meet friends while doing it. Which is why you've signed up for boxing classes but HIIT and a innovative capoeira could also be your thing. 

Did you find your tribe? Time to shop all of your fitness essentials from our expert edit below and hit your next class!

No more laughing at or looking down on the woman in the gym doing her workout with a full face of make-up. There’s always one and she’s actually way ahead of you in the fitness beauty game. So what if you’ve got the adorable outfit or the superior equipment, it’s time to catch up and the secret to her success goes far beyond the waterproof mascara you were imagining. Forward-thinking beauty brands like Clinique and Eyeko are now delivering definitive products to accompany and enhance your workout and restore your skin/muscles afterwards. 


Sweatproof make-up that will withstand a vigorous hour long spin class is a no brainer, along with a face powder that neutralises redness and a 24 hour mascara that you can use on rest days too. If workouts are a strictly makeup free zone for you, specially developed cleansing wipes will keep your skin on-point and prevent breakouts on the go, and there’s a mattifying moisturiser to eliminate shine. Then there are creams, oils and gels to soothe aching muscles and improve problem areas by firming the skin. 

Add the beauty saviours in our edit below to your routine pronto!

It's a well known fact that even if you are one of those people that the world wellness and healthy eating make you cringe. But, after the holidays and for the first few weeks of the new year we all turn into wellness junkies. "This is the year I'll lose the love handles or this is the year I'll reduce my gluten intake and up my hours at the gym", we tell ourselves. That self-righteous health nut voice is probably our own consciousness but also it's that friend -  the year long wellness fanatic who releases more happy hormones whilst running than eating chocolate. 


So this list is dedicated to them and to our January resolution self. We've compiled the most comprehensive list that includes athletic gear, crystal healing books, recipes, and beauty products.
