LIFESTYLE | Get fit with Paperchase's new range

In line with my 'new year, new me' psycho babble - aka me just trying to be more healthy - I thought it might be nice to do a post about Paperchase's new 'Get Fit' range which I am LOVING.

Most of the range has taken on an 80s fitness theme, with bright and bold patterns, mixed with some quirky inspirational quotes such as Gym and Tonic which I love. Here's my little wishlist...

I don't know about you, but I find pretty gym clothes and accessories do actually motivate me because I want to show them off! I mean it's not necessary to go for your first run in the pretties workout gear of all - after all, most people start off with their old P.E kits and smelly trainers borrowed from a sibling (sorry sis) but still. If it gets to the point where you've stopped and want to start again, or you're serious about it and want a push, then treat yourself to something cute from this range.

I think my favourite item is the planner, which is perfect for recording your fitness, no matter how mild or hard. I don't really do reps (lolz, can you imagine) but I have been looking for something like this for a while now where I can jot down what days I work out and what I do (I tend to vary it day-to-day), how much water I've had to drink etc. Paperchase also stock super cute stickers to go along with this.

The wash bag is especially cute too and reminds me of swimming lessons at school! This is a great little bag to keep toiletries in and even things like makeup - don't get me wrong, I don't leave the gym looking amazing but if you're ever heading out somewhere afterwards or you're scared of bumping into someone you know, you can throw in a blusher, eyeliner or mascara for example in here without anything loose at the bottom of your bag, next to your sweaty trainers etc.

I am so very, very tempted to buy the gym bag as I don't actually have a proper one and I really, really love the iconic nod to the vintage 80s fitness rage. Except, y'know without the leotards...

This is just a small example of this pretty stylish (and inspiring) range I'm loving from Paperchase right now. What do you think?
