Spin Class: What To Expect

spinning-1171843_1920

Hey guys! When a friend first mentioned going to a spin class with me I was terrified. I imagined a class full of model-esk women all biking in sync and me struggling to keep up and looking like a fool. I finally sucked it up because curiosity got the best of me.

As it turns out it was a class of women AND men at various ages and athletic ability. The instructor is great at pushing you but letting you go at your own pace. The best part is that no one know how hard (or how little) you’re working but you!

If you’re curious about trying a spin class here are some tips for you:

  1. First and foremost check ask the instructor before class how to adjust your bike. It took me three classes (and the instructor pointing it out) to figure out how to get my bike to a position that was comfortable to me. Don’t make the same mistake I did and make it easier on yourself right away!
  2. Don’t pay attention to what anyone else is doing. Like I said, you’re the only one who knows what resistance level you’re at. Make sure you push yourself but you don’t have to compete with the person next to you.
  3. Bring a towel and a bottle of water! Bringing water is pretty much a given. I didn’t take the towel thing seriously at first because I’m not generally a sweaty person. But hoo-boy does a good spin class make you sweat!
  4. Your butt is going to hurt for a few days. My first class was rough because I have a bony butt and had trouble getting comfortable on the seat. It also hurt to sit on it for a few days! I thought about getting a padded bike seat (which is an option!) but other people in the class told me I’d get used to it. Sure enough it doesn’t hurt anymore!
  5. Clean your equipment. When you’re done the class grab a paper towel and a cleaning product and wipe down your equipment. Remember the sweat I mentioned? The next person to sit on that bike doesn’t want to sit in your sweat, just like you wouldn’t want to sit in theirs!

Have you ever tried a spin class? Did you like it?

Hey guys! This will be a short post for me I’ve been super busy preparing exciting things for the blog! I just wanted to share with you some of my favourite outfits from this years Met Gala.

Style According to…Kate Middleton

KateMiddleton

You have to agree that Kate Middleton screams beauty and class. From her bouncy envied hair, down to the shoes she wears, she knows style. What I love about Kate is that she’s a Duchess and Royalty but still remains so approachable and laid back.

Her style isn’t hard to duplicate. Sure, hers probably costs triple but she’s usually rocking something you may already have in your wardrobe. The other great thing about Kate is that she recycles looks. She believes in wearing something more than once and mixes is up. For example in the above photos, she is wearing the same pair of shoes in the first photo and the last photo. How great is that? It just proves how versatile certain pieces are.

Kate also knows how to dress for her body-type. She’s tall and slim an accentuates this with heels and clothing that is tighter around her legs and waist. She has slim hips so she uses flared dresses and skirts to give the illusion of an hourglass figure.

Which look on Kate do you like the best? Would you wear any of these outfits?

Wedding Season: White Dresses

It seems like everyone around is getting married (including me!) and I’ve been on the hunt for a dress for my bridal shower. I figured I couldn’t be the only one so I complied a small list of my faves. Depending on what kind of bridal shower you’re having will make a difference in which dress style you go with. But nothing beats a classic white dress to let everyone know you’re the bride!
