With active wear booming, i’m going to make it easier for you to understand… Ok, so if you follow me on insta ( @chlohodgkinson ) you may have seen me sorting out active wear wardrobe and the amount of messages I got about how many trainers I have was hilarious. I also get a lot of questions about which ones are best for what, so i’ve broken it down you guys and here are my top picks:
For Gym Training sessions:
For Beyond The Gym:
What are your go to trainers? Are you as obsessed as me?

Boasting 28% more support than a conventional bra, this sports bra has answered my HIIT dreams. Designed for running, this bra offers incredible support for impact exercise even for the smallest amongst us. It’s often thought that for small breasts, sports bras aren’t all the important but it is said that high impact exercise can stretch ligaments in the boobs causing them to ‘sag’ [Livestrong.com]… meaning even those A cups should pay attention to getting the right support.
So when I got sent through this sports bra from Decathlon I was super excited to put it to the test. I took it straight to the gym & put it through its paces rating it on support & comfort out of 10:
Treadmill: Support 10 / Comfort 10
Stair Master: Support 10 / Comfort 10
Training Abs: Support 10 / Comfort 10……
……I’m not even going to carry on with the rest because I think you get where I’m going with this. The cups fit perfectly, snug while still allowing room to move and breathe.
You’ll more often than not find me wearing black in the gym but I’m loving this pattern to add something different to your outfit…so not only is supporting & comforting, it also looks good too.
I’m also such a geek when it comes to technical fabrics in sportswear and this bra has some pretty cool technical features too..
– No Seam – stoping chaffing
– Moisture transfer – breathable materials & perforations inside the cups – no damp boobs for us
– Equarea Control fabric which actively reduces odours during & after running – I’m not sure this means you should skip the deodorant, though!
The bra comes in four colours & are currently at £19.99 available from Decathlon.com … I love this bra so much I’ve even ordered the green one! You can buy yours here … follow me on Instagram @chlohodgkinson and tag me in your Decathlon sports bra’s, I’d love to see how you’re rocking them, using the hashtag #yoursport also gives you the opportunity to feature on Decathlon’s Instagram page!
Hope you enjoy as much as I do…

So week 1 is done and to be honest, taking away the commuting, I’ve had a good week and have learnt so much about digital software – social and web.
If you want, I mean you don’t have too, but you can go to Women’s Health Mag online and see my favourite sorbet recipe … my name is even on the site.. basically famous. Oh and i’m classed as ‘online assistant’… isn’t that fancy.
You’ll all be happy to know i’m no longer getting lost around London, I even ran to the station Wednesday night (1.8 miles with my laptop in my bag, coat and non running gear) just to catch the earlier train – which made me think, if I ran through the centre of Exeter or Plymouth people would think i’m weird. Run through the centre of Piccadilly Circus, which is full to the brim of workers and tourists, past old Bucky palace and through the station and no one looks once let alone twice. I made the earlier train, just, and with sweat pouring off me I had to stand up most of the way which caused difficulty mentally and physically when it came to recovering from the run. Making my situation worse the train only come in 15 blooming minutes earlier than the later one!
On the plus side of things, I get some great pictures on my walk… which brings me onto another thing.. why do Londoners not care about selfies? If I see someone taking a selfie on their own I automatically chuckle like ‘what a gimp’ but so many people do it and no one cares… so I put it to the test. I took two selfies and NO ONE cared – to be honest people have probably got better things to do than look at a sweaty 19 year old thats probably lost in London take a selfie. (selfies below)

I was lucky enough to have a half day today which meant I could pop down to Summerset House to London Fashion Week, I went last year, so it would be rude not too go. As I walked through, I got asked if this lady could take a picture of me for fashion at London Fashion Week, well would be a bit weird if she wasn’t posting about fashion there but yano. So I put my posing to the ultimate test and I am now on their Instagram and Twitter pages tehehehehee exciting tehehehehe. – I think one lady thought I was actually important or something as she took a picture of me as well… I’m on a random persons phone now… possibly forever…hmm… not sure how I feel about that.
Anyway Jean-Pierre Braganza’s catwalk was great and the collection was incredible – watch out for blog up very soon about my favourite pieces.
How has your week been?
