My Gym Bag/Beach Bag

posted on: Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Back in February I was sent this lovely beach bag by Hayden Reis. I was really hoping that I could fit in a vacation over spring break and that I could get to use this bag as it was intended, but it didn't work out. So then I had my fingers crossed that we would get some spring weather and I could make my way down to the community lake to study. No such luck. It's been snowing heaps here still, so I decided to give my gym bag a break and try out this bag instead. It's really sturdy and has load of pockets inside, so it's great as a gym bag. I'm also loving the orange in pink colour combo. 

I snapped a few pictures of my outifts on my way to the gym as well as what I carry in my gym bag. Because I've mostly been running indoors I've gotten away with wearing shorts. I've only run outside twice in the last little while because I wear the vibram fivefinger shoes to run, and they aren't too great at protecting your toes again slush and snow. I had my eyes on the Virbram Lontra for outdoor winter running, and heard good things about them, but I really only have summer running clothes so I decided against them this year.

 I'm really looking forward to actually using the bag as a beach bag. It's supposed to be water and sand resistant and extremely durable. I love that if my water bottle or sunscreen leaks in the bag it won't be ruined and can be easily cleaned. I also love that the bag is versatile, functional, and stylish.


  1. Ahhh the five toe shoes! Everyone I know that uses them loves them, but I just can't get past how odd they look.

    In other news, I love that tote. So bright, fun, and perfect for summer. I think it'll make a great beach tote!
