Launching of Shop Beirut Fitness

IMG_1549

One of my favorite things is discovering new active wear brands. People always ask me where I get my leggings and workout clothes from. I’m known for wearing daring colors, prints and more; regardless of their brand and color.

So many people focus on only one brand and they miss out on all the amazing sportswear clothes out there.

Last week I finally revealed what I have been working on and teasing you guys all along. On Tuesday June 20, I launched #ShopBeirutFitness , a pop up concept that includes a collection of handpicked limited quantities of a few of my favorit US sportswear brands such as 90 degrees and Danskin, aromatic candles, and more.

Gapfit launches its SS17 Collection in Lebanon

IMG_6764

On Thursday April 6th, Gap Lebanon organized an event at their Beirut Souks branch where they invited bloggers and media to discover the launch of their latest sportswear line, Gapfit.

With the rising trend of fit-fashion and ath-leisure, looking fashionably fit and comfortable is what most of us want. I’m the type of person that spends most of their time in sportswear. I used to be a “jeans” type of person up until I started working out, a couple of years ago. Leggings then suddenly became my favorite day to day pick. Whether I am going to my friend’s house, grocery shopping, or even to university; you will always see me wearing my colorful leggings.

Since summer is right around the corner; many people start to think about how they can improve their body and health just before bikini season starts. So, the event included an interactive workshop on “How to follow a healthy diet at Work and at Home” given by dietitian and food blogger, Nicole Maftoum (@Eatlikenicole). Nicole gave the attendees some practical tips and tricks that will help in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and boosting your mood. It is very important to know that exercise and nutrition work hand in hand. (Check out my previous blog post for some useful tips on how to start your fitness journey: here)

The event was also catered by Qi Juices who offered a variety of healthy treats and snacks as well as fresh cold pressed juices to boost our energy in preparation for the outdoor yoga session.

BeirutFitnessXLornaJane

Australia’s leading active wear brand and one of my favorite brands has finally landed in Beirut!

I’ve known this brand for a couple of years and I would always look for it every time I travel. What I love about Lorna Jane is that every single item has something special and unique; no matter how simple it is. They are known for having fashionably fit unique items that make you feel fabulous. Whether it is the integration of mesh, net, or cut outs the flattering and durable fit is what makes this brand stand out.

For those of you looking for a last minute Christmas gift, you can now shop my look or any other Lorna Jane outfits at Zahar Lingerie stores across Lebanon! Any woman would definitely love to receive a comfortable and fashionable outfit to add to her “athleisure” wardrobe 🙂

Check out their fun and trendy collection of black and printed leggings and add a twist to this everyday MUST-HAVE.

Happy Shopping!

Christine’s Favorite Outfits: adidas

Continuing with this series of blog posts, the next stop in the virtual tour of my closet is adidas!

IMG_5040

When I like a brand, I usually stick to it and become a loyal obsessed customer up until another brand attracts my attention. When it comes to sports clothes this is also the case, so I find myself switching from brand to brand. Mix and matching outfits between different brands is also one of my favorite things to do!

Therefore, being completely honest with you, I have not been a fan of adidas up until recently when they started going out of their traditional 3 stripes basic designs. For those of you who have been following me for some time now, know that I am a fan of colorful sports wear especially printed leggings. So lately, adidas’s collaborations with reknown designers and celebrities such as Stan Smith and Stella Mccartney have attracted my attention and have made me a regular adidas customer.

Oh and their fashion sneakers simply make a statement when worn!

Christine’s Favorite Outfits: yApparel

I’ve always had an inclination towards fashion…actually I think every woman just has it in her blood. Through the Beirut Fitness blog, people constantly ask me what my favorite active wear or sportswear brand is, and what brands I prefer over others.

Continuing my #FitnessFashionFriday posts that are posted regularly on Instagram giving fit fashion tips as well as outfit inspirations by brands of my choice; I have decided to start a series of “Christine’s Favorite Outfits”.

This series of blog posts will dive you deeper into my closet. It will introduce you to the brands I wear, what colors I prefer and how I style my outfits to always look fashionably fit.

Those who know me understand my love, appreciation, and addiction for leggings. In fact, I wear most of my workout clothes on day to day basis even when I am not working out. They are the perfect and most comfortable way to go to university, for running errands, and hanging out with friends.

I am a fan of colors…and specially printed leggings.

I will start off this series showing you some of my favorite outfits from yApparel.

yApparel is a yoga and fitness apparel store located in Dubai. I discovered them through Instagram and the best part is that they sell online and ship worldwide! They sell brands such as Brasil Fit, Tonic, Dharma bums and many more. The brands mentioned are the ones that I have tried. These outfits are made for yoga use primarily however, I feel very comfortable working out in them.

I’m not very picky when it comes to choosing what outfit to wear as in going to the active section or running section. As long as the fit is tight (showing the curves) and the legging/short is stretchy then I’m more than happy with that.
