BRANDS I can't live without
There are a few brands that I can't live without. I am not being paid to recommend these guys, I simply want to share how they add value to everyday of my life.
In 2018 I have the incredible honour of representing Liv, the world's first women's cycling brand completely dedicated for women, created by women. No matter the rider’s level or style, Liv provides the best products to help women discover new possibilities through cycling. I bought the Liv Envie which is super comfy and speedy that got me through thousands of miles of training and to my first Ironman race!
This Garmin got me to the start line of Ironman Switzerland. It has a battery life of 24 hours, and so many beneficial functions. You can set the watch to bike, run, swim and triathlon modes. It's bluetooth enabled all sessions are uploaded to Garmin Connect and Strava immediately. The swim can be set to indoor pool or outdoor. You can save 4 different data interfaces to whatever data you want to see from heart rate zone, pace, speed, distance, timing. The capabilities of this watch is endless.
The brain child of Tim and James, this bottle keeps water cold for 24 hours, hot for 12 hours, is environmental friendly, BPA free and comes in amazing colours, designs and sizes. Once I took this bottle to the beach with ice cold water, after a few hours of being in direct sunlight it was still refreshingly crisp cold. My personal favourite design is the Tropical Edition, it gets a lot of compliments.
Triathlon gear designed by women, for women. Power women Rhian and Laura, both Mums, triathletes with full time jobs launched this brand in 2016. They wanted to design triathlon gear for women who race and train hard, but didn't want to compromise in style. I can hands down say that I love all of their stylish designs. My favourite pieces are the two piece blue triathlon race kit.
I have been buying bikinis from Cocobay for over 10 years now. Their collection of bikinis are beautiful, and have different shapes and colours for everyone. The high quality bikinis mean they last for years. They've recently released activewear which are stunning for strength workouts in the gym.
