Buy & Why | Yoga


Turning myself back into a yoga bunny requires a few accessories, natch! So this weekend I popped out with the express intention of finding a scented candle and some new yoga trousers… 

Last January, I bought two fantastic pairs of Wellicious yoga trousers, but unfortunately I’ve worn them out at the knees (disclosure – I wear yoga trousers around the house, a lot!) so a new pair were in order. After popping into Islington’s Space NK for a Diptyque candle in Geranium & Rosa (yes, I succumbed, so expensive but they just scream luxury and specialness) I crossed the road to Sweaty Betty and was delighted to find some XS styles, a looser pair in the sale, and cropped leggings. I like both these styles and went for them both.

As well as yoga, they’re perfect for those in-beween times around the house – when you’re showered and up, so no longer want to be in pyjamas, but aren’t yet fully dressed for a trip out. And they both look so cute with a gorgeous pair of New Balance 574’s I snapped up in the sale. That post coming soon! I did toy with the idea of a snazzy new yoga mat, my purple one is a bit worn with cat scratchings and nearly a decade’s use, but I held back. On this occasion… And the yoga socks, with toes!, were a Christmas present. They’re just what is needed for practising yoga during the winter, keeping your tootsies nice and warm, highly recommend. Any new treats to help along your new year’s resolutions?
