With summer vacations approaching we’re hitting the gym more often than usual. If that's the case for you too, you're also probably suffering from some post-workout aches. No pain, no gain, right? Wrong what you do after a workout can be just as important as what you do during so we’ve rounded up our favourite relaxing rituals to  help restore your muscles after exercise... 


Eat a tasty protein treat 

After a workout replenish your energy with a protein bar or a smoothie with some added protein powder. Add a handful of your favorite fruits like blueberries and bananas to make it more appetizing, an avocado for healthy fat and some granola or oats for fiber. Nuts and seeds are also great for protein and if you’re craving something bigger, go for poached eggs, grilled chicken or sushi.

Soak it off 

When you hit the showers or run a bath, opt for an invigorating shower gel or cream made with ginger, lemon or grapefruit. Try essential oils like lavender that will relieve aching muscles and if you're not in a hurry, treat yourself to a long relaxing bath with magnesium salts at home. Throw on a face mask or hair treatment for the full pampering experience and detox your post-gym skin. 

Sauna and jacuzzi time 

If you're a member of a gym, you'll most likely have access to a sauna or jacuzzi. The warm temperature will increase pulse rate and circulation without straining your muscles and will help with relaxation. Take a cold shower after your session using a revitalizing shower gel to tighten pores, refresh skin and leave you feeling ready to take on the world. 

Ready to give your body some the post-gym pampering it needs? Discover and shop all the essentials from our selection below...

Breaking a sweat shouldn’t mean compromising on style but all too often our choices for comfortable clothing to work out in are limited – a baggy T-shirt and a pair of old leggings might do the trick but they’re hardly inspiring. 

Luckily, brands everywhere have upped their activewear game, offering us a host of affordable and high-end options for every body type to help us look as good as that HIIT session or morning run makes us feel. 

With the likes of Sweaty Betty catering for all manner of activities and launching covetable designer collabs, and leading sneaker brands finally making fashion-forward trainers we can fall in love with, it’s easy to look our best while working on our bods. 

So, whether you favour gentle yoga stretches or full-on bootcamp vibes, we’ve rounded up some of the most gorgeous pieces to help you get your glow on.

Spring is all about recharging in order to take on the new season with a fresh outlook. Sometimes all you need to do is relax and indulge in a little ‘me time’. 


A quick browse online throws up numerous sales at local hotels and wellness centres offering discount spa day packages. Take advantage of a day filled with massages, facials, manicures and a dip in the pool or the hot tub. Or try out a couple of Pilates or yoga classes to take your wellness day to a whole new level. 

What to wear on a spa day... 

Before you book your day away, make sure your wardrobe’s spa-ready. Fill your weekend bag with a fluffy robe, a luxe one-piece swimsuit and silky-soft slippers. Don’t forget your shades and a stylish designer tote for the journey there and back. 

If checking into a spa is off the cards, why not recreate the vibe at home? 

Invest in a few spa essentials like bath oils, candles and aromatherapy products and turn your bathroom into a DIY spa centre that works exclusively for you. 

What are you waiting for? Your spa day starts now. Shop all your pampering and style essentials from our edit below...

Happy Mother's Day! To celebrate the day, we recently caught up with new mummy and fashion blogger Vaida. She is the author of the blog Fashion Addicted and the Instagram account @fashionbyvaida, where she documents her adventures in fashion, beauty travelling and of course parenting. Read her interview below and find out the best Mother's Day gifts she suggests on her exclusive list below. 


What compelled you to start your own fashion & lifestyle blog? 

I started my fashion career as a model but it just wasn’t for me.  Despite that I still was into fashion very much. After constantly being approached by girls and asked where I bought one or another item I decided to create fashion blog and share all my outfit details there. 

What do you enjoy most about the creative process? 

Even it’s hard work I enjoy every bit of it. From creating an outfit to posting it on the blog/Instagram and all the bits in between: looking for beautiful spots to shoot, posing or creating a flatlay, taking pictures, editing them. And the most enjoyable thing is to get positive reactions from my readers. 

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

I love being independent, I can work cosily on my sofa watching my baby playing around. I think that’s the best thing. However being a mum and freelancing has cons too. I am limited to attend various events and sometimes plans can be changed because of my babies needs. 

What are your non-negotiables regarding your wellness routine? 

Having a bath with lot’s of bubbles, candles and relaxing music on Sundays is my best wellness time. 

How would you describe your personal style? Can you give us an example by styling your go-to outfit featuring your favourite brands? 

In one word I would say it’s elegant. I usually choose classic pieces. Mango white suit with Gucci handbag and Zara heels. 

What are your new mum lifesaver products that you can't live without? 

Mama Mio products are wonderful for both mums to be and new mums. 

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

Probably the best memories are from Mauritius (we got married there) and Thailand. Everything is so different there, nature is mesmerising, people are relaxed and the food is super delicious. 

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

I have Build a Bear project coming up. I am going with my boy to Build a Bear workshop to create Easter bunny. I am sure we will have a lot of fun. I have also few beauty and fashion projects coming up soon so keep your eyes peeled and follow my blog Fashion Addicted and Instagram account @fashionbyvaida

Maca's popularity has exploded the past few years. Despite being revered for its medicinal properties for years the maca root is taking over the health community as the latest superfood. Many influencers are adding it to their morning brew for an extra boost of energy and stamina. 


The maca plant is a type of vegetable so powerful that it's sometimes referred to as Peruvian ginseng. It looks very similar to radishes and turnips with green tops and roots. Usually, the yummy tasting root is available in powder after being harvested. It has natural healing properties and has been consumed for years in the Andes as a safe superfood. The maca root powder is high in protein carbs and rich in a number of nutrient including vitamin C, copper and iron. It can also help the body adapt to external stressors like a busy schedule or illness. 

RICH IN ANTIOXIDANTS 

It has many health benefits mainly because it's rich in antioxidants meaning it can neutralise harmful free radicals fighting off disease and preventing damage to cells including ageing. 

ENHANCES MENTAL ABILITIES 

A regular maca intake can improve energy, mood and memory. People that have been implementing it in their routine admit that they feel more awake, energized and driven to take on the day without the shakiness of a strong coffee. 

BALANCES ESTROGEN LEVELS 

Many women suffer from estrogen imbalance levels including bloating irregular menstrual periods and mood swings. Maca, can control the amount of estrogen in the body and also can relieve the symptoms of menopause. Start with one tablespoon of maca powder daily and increase it up to two or three tablespoons throughout the day. You'll notice an increase in energy so it's best to take it before exercising or starting a demanding day. If you're already researching for the best maca powder, don't worry we have rounded them up all for you.

There's a lot of talk about retinol in the beauty world as the magnificent ingredient that has the ability to turn back the hands of time. So it's unsurprising that so many women want to give it a go. Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A (found in carrots) and is very impactful. The best retinol serums and eye creams can boost collagen and reduce the appearance of fine lines, as a result. In addition, they can increase the cell reproduction rhythm, making our skin smoother and soft. It can also clear out clogged pored and make them appear tighter. Truly a wonder cream as you can suspect. 


However, Retinol also comes with a series of precautions. It's a harsh ingredient and thus needs some getting used to. It can also increase photosensitivity (being more sensitive when exposed to sunlight) so this formula is best used at night. If you're really into using it throughout the day then pair it with a layer of your SPF. 

Secondly, as this is one a very sought-after ingredient, brands throw it around without mentioning the actual Retinol A concentration. Check the back of the bottle and make sure you're getting your money's worth! We've already done that for you! 

Discover our selection of Retinol A products in our edit below!

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.
