    My Favorite Gym Accessories

    As we approach the new year, I’m on the hunt for a new gym bag. My favorite purple Adidas bag I snagged on eBay few years ago is hitting the bricks. I’m looking for a bag that’s slightly larger than what I have now to better accommodate my clothes and collection of gym accessories I’ve built over the years. Gym accessories are not required for success, but I do have some favorites that I rely on for nearly every workout!

    ColourPop | First Impressions!

    Previous to this order, I owned one ColourPop product that I purchased with some coworkers, so I’m going to use this order as my real first impression of the brand.
