Recovery Drinks + My Lululemon Obsession

Recovery Drinks + My Lululemon Obsession

Lululemon is one brand I was a bit late to the party with, but now absolutely love. I bought my first Lululemon piece at the start of this year, and it’s safe to say I’m now obsessed. Yes, it’s a little pricier, but the pieces are so stylish and made from the best fabrics, so it’s definitely worth it. Today’s outfit is something I’d wear both to the gym and also around the house or out to run errands. It’s comfy yet stylish!

This jacket has to be one of my favourite Lululemon pieces, and it comes in a variety of colours. It’s a very flattering jacket, that nips in at the waist and has a dipped hem. It also has a heap of cool features including zip pockets (a must have for keeping keys and cellphones safe!), and cute little cuffins to keep your fingers warm. I’m keen to add another one of these to my activewear collection at some stage! Also, can we just take a moment to appreciate how perfect this jacket pairs with these leggings? Yip, it’s a winner! ­čśë

After working out, recently I’ve been drinking these 1 Above Recovery Drinks *. There are two flavours; Blueberry & Apple and Apple & Lime, and both are delicious. They have a lot less sugar in them than your standard post-workout drink, and they taste a lot less sweet. They contain 8 different vitamins and 6 different electrolytes to help hydrate the body and help it recover after exercise or when you are feeling a little dehydrated. They also contain Pycnogenol, a type of tree bark which aids recovery and circulation. As well as being good for after working out or sports, these recovery drinks are quite good if you have had a little too much to drink the night before. After a few drinks I used to reach for a Powerade, but now I’ll reach for these as they have so much less sugar!

      They are really nice, and nowhere as sweet as other popular drinks seem to be. They definitely do a good job of quenching the thirst. They are also my go-to now when I’m travelling too! Thanks for reading! x
