WHAT’S IN MY GYM BAG

It’s that time of the year where people are health conscious and trying to get in tip-top shape. I’ve been hitting the gym since the start of the New Year and have more drive than ever to change my body for the better! I just feel so much better in general when I’m active and in shape. Plus I like the challenge that comes with working out, as well. Here are my workout bag essentials!

The Bag: I use the Avia Sport Tote With Slip Pocket For Yoga Mat or Towel cause it gets the job done and is only $10 free shipping. Hard to beat that! It’s smaller, but still holds all of the below with ease and has a spot for a yoga mat, which I like.

Water Bottle: Probably the most important things in your bag is your water bottle! I couldn’t find the exact one that I use online, but I like the ones with a straw. Makes it easy to quickly grab a drink while you’re working out.

Extra Thick Yoga Mat: I like my yoga mats extra cushy. I’ve found that TJ Max, Marshalls, Ross, etc have good prices on a variety of yoga mats.

Tarte Gym Bag Grabs Athleisure Essentials: This includes a full size lifted sweatproof mascara in black brown, travel-size brighter days highlighting moisturizer, deluxe quench lip rescue in nude, and some fresh eyes maracuja waterproof eye makeup remover wipes. I often wash my face after a workout, so this set comes in handy for that.

Tarte No Shower Happy Hour Athleisure Essentials: This includes a travel size clean queen vegan deodorant, travel size hair goals dry shampoo, travel size tarteguard 20 tinted moisturizer in medium , deluxe tarteist glossy lip paint in goals (rosy nude), and a deluxe Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in insightful (peachy pink). The deoderant and dry shampoo are a lifesaver and the makeup is great if you have to run errands or something after you hit the gym.

Headbands: These are great for whisking away sweat and keeping your hair out of your face. My mom and I just tried out these from Amazon and like them quite a bit!

Small Towel: For when you’re very sweaty and need a little extra someting-something.

Hair Ties: I mean, duh.

Small Combination Lock: You need a small lock if you’re using the lockers at your gym! Keep your stuff safe while you’re getting your sweat on.

Gym Shoes: I use my old running shows ats my gym shows. They are a pair of Saucony that I was using last summer but decided I wanted something different for a running shoe and transitioned it to my gym shoe. I will probably be replacing them soon, though.

Fitbit Blaze: Okay, this isn’t really IN my bag, but still essential for my workouts. I love the Blaze so much. It looks like an awesome digital watch but is super useful when you’re working out for steps, heart rate, calories, and timing yourself. It even has workouts ON the watch that you can follow along to. I highly recommend it!

One thing I know I’m missing is a pair of good bluetooth headphones. I would LOVE some recommendations on headphones or anything else you have in your gym bag that I don’t have listed. Comment and let me know!

CHARCOAL TOOTHPASTE?! | CARBON COCO TEETH WHITENING REVIEW | VIDEO

I’m digging the charcoal polish and toothpaste that Carbon Coco sent for me to review! I’ve seen a noticeable difference in how white my teeth are and it’s so easy to use!

What I’m using: The Ultimate Charcoal Kit

β€’ The Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish Unlike the usual activated charcoal from health stores, this is made of finely milled Organic Coconut Activated Charcoal with a hint of Bentonite Clay and Lemon Myrtle. This special formula is proven to be very gentle yet effective in detoxifying the mouth and removing stains! It has zero taste and smell.

β€’ The Activated Charcoal Toothpaste This is a toothpaste formula that doesn’t have fluoride. It also contains our magic ingredient: activated charcoal! The toothpaste is black but turns into white foam while brushing, and it has a yummy minty taste. The toothpaste is designed to protect your teeth from further staining throughout the day, so you won’t mess up your results if you love coffee and coloured drinks!

Bonus: all Carbon Coco products are vegan-friendly and cruelty-free!
