Hobbies we’re loving at the moment

Friday, March 14th, 2014

 

If your mind always draws a blank when it comes time to fill in that ‘other interests’ section  on a job application or you have no clue what to write in your Twitter bio, it might be time to embrace a new hobby. In 2014, we’ve been enjoying a few new pastimes and they’ve been a welcome addition to our normal cycle of shopping, socialising and dining out.

Here are a few of the things we’ve been getting up to over the past few months.

 

Baking

 

GBBO may be in between series but that doesn’t mean our passion for baking has dimmed. We’ve been whipping up a host of tasty treats, from brownies to cupcakes and even macaroons. Mary Berry would be proud and let’s just say our co-workers aren’t complaining! We’re even wondering whether our ‘rainy day fund’ will stretch to a Kitchen Aid as well as those heels we’ve been eyeing up…

Bodyweight training

 

All the baking means we’ve had to take up some exercise and the fitness fad we’re in love with at the moment is bodyweight training. Perfect for gym novices, bodyweight means ditching all the fancy equipment and simply using your own body. We’re push-up, pull-up, burpee, lunge and squat experts now. Classes are also the perfect excuse to pull on our new Reebok Classics.

 

Knitting

 

It may only be March but we’re already planning next winter’s wardrobes and hopefully they will feature some pieces created with our own fair hands. Yes that’s right we’ve followed in our grandmothers’ footsteps and taken up knitting. If you fancy having a go at knitting and purling, start small with a scarf and build up to more complicated patterns like jumpers. We love the fact that you can combine knitting with chatting or relaxing in front of the TV, as long as you don’t mind dropping a few stitches…

 

The theatre

 

If you fancy yourself as a bit of a culture vulture, going to the theatre is a great way to spend the evening, especially if coupled with a post-play discussion over a few drinks. It doesn’t have to be a pricey hobby either, Travelzoo often has last minute deals on theatre tickets across the UK so check it out if you’ve got a spare evening.

Trainers you’ll want for the gym

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

 

It’s that time of the year when even the most exercise-phobic among us dust off our workout wear and head to the gym to work off those Christmas chocolates and start our New Year fitness regime. And while sweating in an over-crowded gym isn’t everyone’s idea of a perfect evening, there is one bright side to all this exercise; you can buy some new trainers. Here are a few of our favourite pairs.

 

For her

NIKE ROSHE RUN – £69.99

This trainer has a streamlined feel, while the cool grey and black speckled print detailing will certainly make you stand out from the crowd. Oh, and the running silhouette and rubber outsole with ribbed pattern for traction make them perfect for pounding the pavement or the treadmill.

CONVERSE ALL STAR LOW – £44.99

Perfect for weight training, these white mono numbers offer a secure and supportive fit. Their flat sole also means they will keep you well grounded whilst you do your reps.
