I'm sporty and I know it!

Skechers shoes 
Nike Dry Fit leggings
 Adidas climacool hoodie

Could not pass up the massive sale at my local outlet and came home with all these. Initially looking for a tennis skirt/pant, I ended up getting an entire outfit! Don't regret any of it though, great prices and even better quality!

I've only had Wilson garments before, but Adidas seem to be on top of their game too. I also bought the long sleeved version of this hoodie and will post it soon in another sporty outfit, if you stylish people are into that. The Nike leggings are quite flattering, but a bit tight at the leg end.

I am most happy about the skechers! They are incredibly light, comfortable and flexible. The fact that they are red doesn't hurt either. Don't tell anyone, but I'm wearing them around the house this very moment... :)

Sorry for the quality of the pictures. They are taken with phone camera, in low light, right after I got home and tried everything on. Obviously could not wait! :) I have still to go out on the tennis court or for a morning run, but I know from now on I'll be comfy and looking good while doing sports.

I have to say that Lindsey from Saucy Glossie has long inspired me to get fit and she's continuously showing how good you can look and feel in sportswear. So thank you Lindsey and keep giving a good example! Hopefully more young ladies will follow your lead.

Visiting Victoria Memorial Hall

Hi everyone! Greetings from sunny Kolkata, India.

A few days ago we went to visit Victoria Memorial Hall, a memorial building dedicated to Queen Victoria, currently museum and tourist attraction. I must say it is quite impressive and I cannot wait to go back for their light and sound show that happens every evening. The gardens are also beautiful, apparently twenty one gardeners maintain the garden and the morning walkers have four associations. Most of the members of the morning walker associations are the rich and the famous of Kolkata.

There are some rare books in the Library which date back to the 1870s. Some of the books worth mentioning are the collection of plays by William Shakespeare and The Arabian Nights. All are exotically illustrated. Costume designers consult and refer to these books while designing for Shakespearian plays in Calcutta.

My outfit for the day included comfortable shoes, crossover bag, maxi skirt and a printed t-shirt, part of a campaign from my county of origin, Oltenia (in Romania). It reads "Fusei aici, facui asta" - "I was just here, I just did this", making reference to a specific verb tense used in our region (and nowhere else). The campaign consists in proudly wearing the t-shirt all over the world on our travels and sharing the pictures with fellow travellers from Oltenia and abroad. I thought that is kind of nice and went for it. Now I'll just have to think of cool ways of styling it since it will get remixed quite a lot. :)
