Zalora now has Daniel Wellington watches on their website! The styles are classic and will never go out of fashion. You can customise the straps and even wear their jewelry. If you are keen do check out the link I will put at the end of this post. But for now let's look at their watches! 

Classy Glasgow-Watch Rose Gold 26mm
This watch is so versatile you can pair it with jeans and a t-shirt or with a dress. The stripes detail on the watch strap and the rose gold hardware boasts both class and a laid back vibe. I would recommend this watch as a gift for someone who wants to stay casual and sophisticated at the same time.

Classy Winchester-Watch Silver 34mm
Are you a girly girl who loves looking put together and pretty in pink at the same time? This watch is for you. It features silver hardware and a pink stripe that runs along the watch strap. Perfect for outings with the girls or a casual lunch date with your significant other.

Classic Black Reading Watch 36mm
Do you know of an older gentleman or simply someone who wants to look extra good for clients? This classic number is for you. It has an elegant but yet understated design featuring rose gold hardware and a leather strap. Perfect to go with your suits or dinner dates.

Classic Black Cornwall Watch 40mm
My favourite, I love the NATO strap and the silver hardware on this number. It is both stylish and sleek great to wear it out to work or for play. You can imagine a spy wearing this watch while on secret missions around the world. Play the part of an international woman of mystery with this dark mysterious time piece.

Working Out With Dumbbells

The chinese new year is almost over and so here is a workout video!

It is my first work out video I did focusing on using dumbbells you can adjust and use heavier dumbbells for your own routine.

I have since switched to these neoprene ones I got from qoo10 website.

What is the difference between neoprene and vinyl you may ask?

Well as a dumbbells non-expert I researched a little and discovered that vinyl gets sticky as you sweat and use it it also attracts dust. Whereas the neoprene one remains dry as you exercise and does not attract dust the surface is not as sticky compared to the vinyl one. Neoprene costs more but is a better investment if you intend to use weights for a long time.

One tip for people that do not like to exercise is to get attractive workout gear. Places that I like to get workout gear include Cotton On and H&M. I usually buy the sales item since I don't want to spend a bomb on workout clothes and I don't own any gym membership. Exercise in these clothes so that you associate workouts with it. Than when you are feeling unmotivated and you wear the exercise clothes and just spend your day going about your routine you will slot in exercise time automatically. Your mind has already been tuned into working out when you wear these exercise clothes. Alternatively you can use music to condition your body to work out so every time you play this tune you will think of working out.

If you still cannot get motivated to work out slot in 1 or 2 minute workouts such as doing 20 squats, 20 reverse crunches or 20 waist twist exercise all spaced out throughout your day. These exercises require no equipment and you do not need to leave home to do it.

Actually all my exercises do not require you to leave home to do it but if you prefer working out outdoors its an option for you you can use the weights available in the gym. I also like to get a bottle of water ready to stay hydrated during my work out.

Have a great day! Stay healthy and hydrated!
