Pink Soda Sport JD SportsSo, yesterday I headed off in the direction of Malvern for an impromptu break.  Having now returned,  I can confirm that rest and relaxation was definitely on the cards, along with an eyebrow-raising amount of sweet food.  Oops.  I'll be the first to admit my nutrition has never exactly been 100% 'clean', however as you may well know by now, I'm a bit of a fitness-fanatic!  The deeper I delve into the world of fitness, the more tips and techniques I'm discovering and the more inspiration I'm stumbling across - seriously, Instagram in particular is such a massive source of motivation with regard to fitness accounts.  Personally speaking, one of the greatest motivators for me is activewear; both how it looks and how it feels. With this in mind, say hello to LA-inspired Pink Soda Sport, a collection bursting with lifestyle and fitness essentials that let you 'run, spin and stretch in style'...

Pink Soda Sport Collection PhotographyPink Soda Sport was launched in JD Sport stores - a chain specialising in training shoes, casual sportswear and accessories - in March of this year.  Over the years, many of my running basics have been purchased from JD and so a fair level of trust has been built up thanks to the many pairs of lycra shorts sitting in the sports section of my wardrobe.  With that in mind, I was already on board with Pink Soda Sport's functional and yet attractive sportswear.  However, then throw the line 'from gym-to-street in style' my way and well, you've created a committed fan!

JD Pink Soda Sport blog review
Pink Soda Sport JD sports reviewThe best aspect of their collection has to be how the pieces have been made with layering in mind.  I mean, sure, I'm pretty open with fashion when it comes to clashing prints and colours.  However as soon as the discussion of fitnesswear pops up, I instantly become matchy-matchy - definitely not alone on that one.  This heather grey tracksuit is ideal for getting you from A to B without allowing you to freeze in the process; and personally speaking, the thick material feels like a warm hug after bouncing around in far less clothing beforehand!  I'd love to suggest the fleece-lining being unsuitable for summer, but we all know how temperamental the weather can be and especially so in England...
Pink Soda Sport Capri Leggings review

uk female activewear bloggerThough I adore this entire Pink Soda outfit, my favourite piece is probably the stylish Mesh T-shirt.  Running and/or working out in sports bras isn't always ideal (or appropriate, depending on where you are) and so the relaxed yet sporty style of this monochrome top is a key piece to have at hand.  The mesh panelling to the sleeves combined with the cropped hemline makes it totally ideal, while preserving your modesty a little bit on those days when baring all doesn't seem that appealing!

Pink Soda Sport JD Sports Review 2016
Pink Soda Sport Mesh T-shirt reviewIf running is your thing, I would recommend keeping the super-flattering black sports bra for the gym and/or light workouts.  As gorgeous as it is (check out that geometric back design!), the lack of support means it's just not suitable for bouncing up and down.  However, speaking as someone who's forever on the lookout for activewear that doubles up for most types of exercise, if you're looking for leggings that stay up and in place, massively flatter and earn compliments while doing so, I'd suggest trying these Capri Leggings.  They're made with a sweat-wicking fabric that pulls moisture away from the skin, as well as a flattering wide waistband.

Psst!  The Capri Leggings are designed with a hidden key pocket!

With these gorgeous pieces, my activewear wardrobe is well and truly ready for the season ahead and all the many fitness goals I've set.  Speaking of which, my knee is feeling one million times better now and so outside of my current fitness regime, it looks as though I'll be able to return to running soon - wrapped in Pink Soda Sport fitness essentials and listening to my Revamped Fitness Playlist, of course!

With love,
