We recently got Emily’s newborn photos back from our baby photographer. The photos are absolutely gorgeous. The photographer provided us copies in digital format but it’s simply not the same treasuring them in a print format. So naturally we wanted to have a printed copy […]

WHAT’S IN MY GYM BAG | ESSENTIALS

GYM BAG ESSENTIALS WOMEN WORKOUT PRODUCTS HELLONANCE.COM LIFESTYLE BLOG

When I feel like my 10 minute fitness commitment just isn’t going to cut it for the day, I know I need a good sweat! I am slowly getting back into the grind and it is hard AF and I’m not even going to lie about it. Life after having a baby is challenging. There is always an excuse available for procrastinating: too tired, too busy, too hungry, baby is fussing, baby is sleeping. But I know I need to get back into shape in order to keep up with baby and life itself. So I took an inventory of what was in my previous gym bag and what’s in my gym bag now – essentials. only.

I use a 18L backpack (also available in 24L) from Ryu Apparel. I love the minimal and modern sleek design and their quick access compartments: drop front design opens for easy packing, organizing and accessing your gear. It is hard wearing and durable that keeps it’s unique shape whether empty or full.

My makeup bag is from Lululemon. “Sweaty or Not Kit” is perfect for carrying sweaty gear and shower essentials. I also carry wet wipes, extra elastics, hair band and travel size toiletry set (shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body lotion) and BB Cream. Don’t feel like washing your hair? A little bit of dry shampoo goes a long way! And I always keep my wireless earbud headphones with a built in heartrate monitor inside my makeup bag (otherwise I will lose them).

 

I love my Ryu Quick Pack for keeping my gym bag essentials in place. So there you have it! These are the things I keep in my workout bag. Of course, I usually have a bottle of water and a few granola bars or almonds too! So what’s in YOUR gym bag? Let me know below!

SUDIO SWEDEN WIRELESS HEADPHONES REVIEW | REGENT BLUETOOTH

SUDIO SWEDEN WIRELESS HEADPHONES REVIEW | REGENT BLUETOOTH

SUDIO SWEDEN HEADPHONES BLUETOOTH HelloNance.com Baby Beauty Travel Lifestyle Vancouver Blog

With baby due in less than a month now, I’ve been nesting at home a lot. Cleaning, decorating and organizing for our little one’s arrival. Not to mention, I don’t really feel like walking around too much (even though it is good for us), my back hurts and she’s getting quite heavy my the pelvic floor. So it is the perfect time to sit back, elevate my legs and listen to some good music. These Sudio Sweden Regent bluetooth wireless headphones are perfect! No pesky wires. I can keep my hands free from getting tangled.

I love with the packaging and the white and gold combinations is aesthetically very pretty. It also comes in jet black. Similar to the Sudio Vasa Blå earphones,  it comes in a nicely packaged box complete with USB charging cables, auxiliary audio cables and usual manual. The headphones pairs seamlessly with all your bluetooth device.

There is 24 hours of active battery time and a full 20 days standby. Quick charge time only takes only 10 mins to get the headset going or ( 2 hours for full charge).

There is a built-in microphone and an auxiliary port if you don’t want to go wireless.

I also like the 3 button remote buttons on the bottom of the ear piece. You don’t have to keep fumble around with your phone to try and change the song or adjust the volume. Rather, all of these options are available right near your ear on the 3-button remote.

 

Included

  • Sudio Regent
  • Auxiliary Audio Cable
  • Charging Cable
  • Owner’s Manual
  • Guarantee Card
  • Quick Start Guide

I like the interchangeable caps even though the stock white with gold is pretty slick already. For those who like variety, a nice feature these Sudio Regent headphones has is the interchangeable caps. It comes in blue or pink botanical print and also a black or white marble. Personally I really like the white on white marble look!
