How to PackProcessed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

I have recently made a decision, two decisions actually: 1) To work out and 2) to be healthier. I have two full time jobs, I’m an artist and a tastemaker, so you can only imagine my schedule (or lack thereof). In addition to the wild schedule, I am not one of those girls who considers working out “fun”, so it took a little push to get me off on the right foot.

I noticed quickly that if I don’t keep a gym bag already packed and ready to go each day, then once I come home to pack it, I end up in my office instead.  And of course, having a great looking black suede duffel by Herschel Supply Co. doesn’t hurt.

I decided I’d share my tips for always keeping a gym bag packed:
I always keep a pair of sneaks and ankle socks on hand, as well as a pair of plastic flip flops (for exiting yoga or even an unexpected shower). Favorite pairs right now include: Nike Lunar Sweet Victory, New Balance 410 Tie Dye Sneaker, Sam Edelman Dax Sneaker, Nike Roshe Run Sneakers, Nike Free 4.0 V4 Running Sneakers.
The nice thing about investing in a sneaker you love, is that everyone is wearing them with day/dress clothes right now.  So, if you are going to splurge on a sneaker, now is the time! I have two pairs (and counting) on my Christmas list.

Flips flop wise? Havianas.

I always keep a water bottle, a few packets on vitamin C (these by Youth Infusion are the ones I am trying this week), and a bag of nuts, just in case I need a snack before an intense spin class. Pony tail holders, a towel, deodorant, music are all musts.

I have been carrying Korres Makeup Removing Wipes.  Having something to take my makeup off before class is a lifesaver.  Feels like a little luxury in a not very luxurious locker room.

And last but def not least, my favorite new gym essential I keep gear from Onzie. I love the prints, the straps, the colors…
