Roxy the women's line by Quicksilver originally started as a swimwear brand which blossomed into a successful sportswear line known for their "Fun, Bold, Athletic, Daring and Classy" pieces. Last weekend, they hosted a Run followed by a SUP Yoga session, to celebrate their new collection.
As comfortable as I am in the gym now, there was a time I absolutely hated walking into the weights room. Joining the gym is a battle in itself, but the challenge remains in walking past the sweaty men grunting and deadlifting and the perfectly put together women who don’t seem to have sweat glands.

This article is not an "anti-fat" campaign, I know our bodies need a certain amount of fat to carry out their bodily function. I am here for self-love and for all the "thick" or "thin" beautiful people out there. I even love fats, BUT there is a big fat (no pun intended) line between a healthy amount of body fat and a heart that can barely pump blood through clumps of fat.
It’s getting cooler in Dubai, but you know not “really”, adventuring outdoors is still for those who don’t mind frizzy hair, extreme cases of “sweat-itis” and sore sun burnt skin. So we're packing our bags and heading to Oman for our adventure fix.
The badass duo behind the locally grown sportswear brand Elevaete have done it again with the release of the Love of Sport collection in collaboration with local artist Amna Al Banna.

In my opinion there’s no better way to celebrate the weather than stepping out in new workout gear, regardless of if you are going for a run on the beach, yoga in the park or cycling at the autodrome.
