words Rhys Thomas
Doing things can be hard. HARD! A habit is formed in 61 days, they say, but they don't say that those sixty plus one days are often pretty difficult. Thing is, creating positive changes is usually very much worth it.
So we’re here to help you out. We got your back. Whether the new you is going to be hitting the gym, having better sex, or just looking to sleep better, we’ve curated a bunch of the products on our own (already specially curated) website that are on sale too, so you’ll be getting a sweet deal to sweeten the deal you’ve made with yourself! Okay, let’s go…
Run Fast Radically Reflective Running Shorts in Black
These cool short shorts will not only use the “AEROREADY” technology to absorb moisture to keep you literally cool, they’re also reflective and glow-in-the-dark which is really cool whether you’re running to a club or just running at night and looking for extra visibility. Also, a huge 70% off, £30 cheaper!
Puma Cotton Cap
So you need a cap for functional reasons? Okay, fine, but you might as well make it cute right? This is an old Puma cotton cap, which will be as breathable and durable as it is nice to look at. Y2K Tennis? Cute running fits? Just love a good snapback and looking to have another for “active” reasons? Look no further.
After activities, keep warm with these sweatpants
Perfect Terry Sweatpant in Indigo
You should always cool down after exercise, but weirdly, this doesn’t mean you need to let your body get cold. A good excuse to have a little treat of really cosy sweatpants to stick on over the shorts post-workout, then! The yoga-based brand has made lovely sweatpants with a super-soft feel and elasticated cuffs that ensure no wind catches your legs off guard.
A very stylish crop top with 70% off
Electric & Rose’s Grayson crop top is fire. Each piece is dyed individually, meaning they’re all slightly unique, the design is sleek and bold at once, definitely a serious gympiece. The material is cotton blended with nice breathable synthetics, and the cut is high at the neck and crossed on the back. Full of support.
Rest is important too
Men's Blueberry Linen Pyjama Trouser Set
Actively looking to chill out this year? Actively looking to not wear outdoor clothes indoors this year? Actively looking to not go home and use a shorts and T-shirt because you sleep naked but really can’t be doing that with family around? All answers point to a nice pyjama set made from super soft 100% stonewashed linen. They have pockets, lads, don’t worry.
Bra-illiant… no we won’t bother
Let's Go Staunton Bra
Boasting excellent breathability, moisture-management and a V-neck, the “let’s go staunton bra” from Varley features four way stretch and looks great. Making it ideal for the gym and brunch all at once. It’ll dry super quick too and is founded by a women-owned company, so it’s been tested properly.
But if you're dancing...
Sheba Dance Bra in Animal Print
The Upside has a bra especially for you! The animal print will have you going full Spice Girls, but it’s also a sustainable bra with adjustable straps and removable bra cups, so you can make it fit as you need. Again there’s four-way stretch and it’ll dry really quickly.
Ace bit of kit
Tennis London Shorts in White
Tennis shorts are great, snug and floaty, tights and shorts in one. This pair are all white and look lonely, with an elasticated waistband and perforated detailing. Wimbledon or catwalk, it’s up to you! They’re also made with recycled materials, and feature technology twitch makes them very aerodynamic and moisture-wicking. HIIT sessions and tennis? Here’s the shorts.
You can wear essential oils, you know?
Sweet Dreams Diffuser Blend
If a resolution is to improve sleep hygiene, or to generally feel calm and to disconnect, here’s an idea. Wear some good essential oils that are blended to help with the issue you’re trying to overcome. This one is a blend of lavender, frankincense, and geranium – ideally for calming a busy mind, promoting sleep, and relieving tension. A drop or two on your wrists and inhale, or put it in a diffuser to get the vibe for your whole room.
A cock ring
Adjustable Vibrating Cock Ring
Looking for better sex this year? A cock ring is something you wear that can help sex to feel better, in terms of helping you to last longer but also have more intense climaxes. This ring from So Divine is adjustable, so you can be sure it’ll fit you just right. It vibrates with ten different functions too, seven patterns and three speeds. You’ll find something you like in no time!
