You know that exciting project or job you want to start but are putting off until the 'right time', until you feel prepared and 100% ready? Here's the truth - you may never feel ready, and there will never be a 'right time'.


Imposter Syndrome: Pushing Through Self-Doubt and Comfort Zones

Well hello there, it's been a wee while hasn't it. Although the blog hasn't been popping recently, I've still been happily active on Instagram. And one thing I did promise not so long ago on Insta Stories was a review of my new sportswear - the Gymshark Women Energy Seamless high waisted leggings and sports bra set in Purple Wash.

Gymshark is a British sportswear brand that has gained customers and popularity partly due to its heavy use of influencer marketing, particularly on Instagram. I have followed some fitness influencers for a while now who are sponsored by Gymshark, and must admit I have indeed been drawn in by the pretty poses, crop tops and especially the super high waists which I find very flattering.

The brand has gained a mass following creating hype by introducing new collections or 'dropping new releases' at specific times with limited stock, encouraging customers to buy as soon as they are released to avoid missing out on new designs. But I want to find out if the product lives up to its hype, what I view as the digital equivalent of loyally camping outside a new store 12 hours before its grand opening.

At £42 for the seamless leggings and £28 for the sports bra, this isn't the cheapest workout wear. But it isn't the most expensive either. Thus I gave into my wants and justified the purchase to myself by promising I would review it for the blog - so here we are. For a completely honest and unbiased review from a frugal student including tales of unwelcome camel toe, free returns (for UK, USA and Canada) and VPL (visible panty line), please continue reading.
