colored tights

Colorful tights are my favorite thing to wear once the temperatures drop. And of course I feel like Blair Waldorf so why wouldn’t I wear them?! I styled four outfits around my current pairs of colored tights, showing you how I wear them throughout fall and winter. It just so happens that Target has their tights on sale this week so head on over to your local Target to check out there selection!


It was a bit chilly as we took the pictures and Ebbie was just not feeling going outside, so she decided to supervise from the screen door. (:


My first outfit would be perfect if we went to a relative’s house for Thanksgiving. The colors just scream fall and the loose fit of the dress would be perfect for the food baby I have by the end of the day.


The next outfit is perfect for a…

Mighty Metty

Great post from La Vida Lycra regarding the athlete Sue Metcalfe – the strong woman of lycra.

La Vida Lycra


I caught up with Sue (Metty) Metcalf on the eve of her departure from Australia to take up residence in North America.

People move countries for different reasons – for love, for work, to widen their horizons or to seek a community of kindred spirits. Metty is moving for all of these reasons, but her primary goal is to take her quest for world power domination to the next level.

Sue Metcalf raises the bar Sue Metcalfe raises the bar

Sue is not chasing political power, although her vocation is to campaign for youth justice, and she will continue this advocacy in the USA.  No, Metty is installing herself amongst the world’s biggest community of protein-munching, physical-power perfecters. And she isn’t there to join them, but to lead them!

Until recently, Sue’s greatest sporting achievement was being chosen for representative Netball. However, since becoming Australia’s strongest woman and winning second place in the USA in…

Introducing 02Fit – Compression Wear that Wont Break the Bank

Finding good quality compression wear can be a hit and miss affair.

Some brands such as Skins and 2XU can be over $100 a piece

However 02Fit Compression wear is reasonably priced and looks great



Below is an excerpt from 02 Fitness on why they started making good quality compression wear which was under $100.00!

o2fit is Australia’s cheapest compression clothing online retailer. We are based in Perth, Western Australia and are 100% Australian owned and operated.

The three of us started o2fit with the belief that people shouldn’t have to pay over $100 to be able to use compression clothing. So we set out to find if we could get the price lower for compression clothing without reducing the quality.

We were amazed with what we found. There was no reason why compression clothing had to be above $100. There was no reason why it had to even be over $50.

You only have to watch a televised game of AFL or surf the web to work out why our competitors are so expensive. They are using your wallet to help pay for their massive advertising budgets. Plastering massive billboards on sporting ovals, hijacking websites with large banner adverts and sponsoring professional athletes adds up quickly and the only way to pay for that is to have huge profit margins.

We decided to go down a different path. We aren’t stupid – we know that a business can’t survive without revenue. But instead of only getting a small amount of people to pay a ridiculous amount for a pair of compression pants we would much rather have lots of customers paying an affordable amount. We know from experience that our product and price will speak for itself.

There are three areas which we believe set ourselves apart from the others.

  1. The first is price and quality. We are the cheapest compression clothing brand in Australia, but that doesn’t mean the quality is lower than the other products.
  2. The second thing is our approach to our customers. We are passionate about o2fit and want to see more people using compression clothing in Australia. That’s why it isn’t a chore for us to speak to our customers. If you flick us an email the reply will come from one of o2fit’s owners. We are always improving our products and adding new product lines. We do that based on your feedback. We don’t discount a comment just because it is from one individual, every bit of feedback is important to us.
  3. And finally, our approach to advertising. We know that people will recommend an affordably priced and a quality product to their friends and family. We don’t have a massive national advertising budget to get our brand known so we are relying our product and service to speak for itself. That means we can keep our product prices low and as a result more Australian will get the benefits of using compression clothing.
