Good Evening guys,
What better way to spend my day off yesterday than at an event in York?
This time I was lucky to get a place at the Origins x Sweaty Betty York Event. The incredible Alex over at Origins was so kind to let me have a place at this event and is the sweetest person! I feel so grateful to have been invited to another Origins event only shortly after the previous event with Em Sheldon. I also got chance to meet girls that I met at the previous event again and it was great to have a catch up.
You can go and check out all about the fun I had at the previous event: Origins York: Launch Event
The event was all planned around Sweaty Betty and Origins opening on York fairly recently. Combining a Yoga practice in the centre of York and then Facials + Juices back at Origins.
Unfortunately due to the very unpredictable weather in York they decided to hold a meditation and floor exercise routine in the Origins store. This was probably for the best but there were discussions on rescheduling the Yoga routine at another time.
The lovely Fran Yoga was hosting the Yoga/Meditation portion of the event. She was amazing sporting a stunning Sweaty Betty two-piece. It was lovely to do yoga with a different instructor. Fran works over at The Stables Yoga Centre in York and is a yoga ambassador at Sweaty Betty York.
I never knew a lot about Sweaty Betty apart from how gorgeous their activewear is. This event really opened my eyes to them as a brand as the manager was there. She was so kind and I stood and spoke to her for ages. She told me that Sweaty Betty offer 20% discount for students which I never knew about. 20% is a really generous amount of discount for students and as some of the items may be slightly out of the price range for students without the discount.
Sweaty Betty also provide free workout classes in store and I have just booked on to a Pilates Class in the York store which I am really excited about. I know that Sweaty Betty is a little bit more on the pricier side for fitness clothing but the quality is absolutely incredible. For a long time I have wanted to own a two-piece fitness outfit and we were very lucky that in our goody bag we had £15 off anything and I was told I could add the 20% student discount off as well. This of course gave me a very good excuse to treat myself.
Sweaty Betty have also just launched their #SBPower Tokyo Bloom print range and the manager was sporting the leggings for the event and they are gorgeous. I went into Sweaty Betty after the event finished and tried on the two-piece and fell in love. They are so comfy and flattering, plus the leggings are a perfect height on my stomach.
(I will be posting pictures up on my Instagram @bookitblogger soon so keep an eye out), if you also fancy hearing a review on how good these last in a workout let me know! I will test if they give me that Power!
Origins provided a lovely service again providing the most relaxing Ginzing Facial ever. My skin was honestly glowing and I already use their products religiously and have seen such a positive change in my confidence. I walked into town with absolutely no make-up on and many people who know me will realise that is a big deal.
The ladies even complimented me on my skin which made me feel absolutely amazing. I have also booked in for their 60-minute facial tomorrow including a massage so I will let you all know how that goes. I am very excited because I know they are incredible and highly recommend them to anyone.
I’ve started really focusing on taking care of myself with fitness and my skincare and it has positively impacted my mood & self esteem.
When I arrived I was slightly early and wandered my way upstairs after speaking to the staff and picking up a green juice (which was delicious). I sat on the green sofa and browsed through ‘The Little Book of Hygge’ and soon realised I was the only one sat up there so headed back downstairs.
It is great to discover more + more about their range and meet some more of the staff. I felt so relaxed and my mood is so high whenever I am in that store, so tomorrow I know will be a very positive end to the week.
I left with another bag of goodies including my brand new Sweaty Betty outfit.
I’ve got a lovely Sweaty Betty Water bottle + hair bobbles. I also have 4 mini’s including the Drink Up Intensive Mask, Charcoal Mask, Frothy Face Wash & A Perfect World moisturiser. As I previously said in my last post these mini’s are so perfect for going away for a weekend or on holiday they are absolutely perfect.
I could not think of a better way to finish my day off before my dentist appointment than at my favourite coffee place ‘Spring Espresso‘ I had a green tea and avocado toast to continue my relaxation and healthy day.
If you are in York and fancy a day of relaxation head into Origins for your facial, wander over to Spring Espresso for a cheeky lunch, then treat yourself in Sweaty Betty.
I have been very lucky over the past couple of weeks and I really hope this continues. It has given me a great boost of confidence with this blog and I hope it shows.
