Fitness, Shopping

Labour Weekend Haul

am i turning into a gym bunny!?

The bf would say that I already am, for sure. Every time I can be bothered going regularly to the gym anyway 😛

 

Last weekend was a fantastic time to go shopping. Some stores even began their sales up to a week before the actual labour weekend!

 

The Warehouse was one of the ones that started early, and also ended late!

I purchased a pair of cotton PJ shorts before labour weekend, and picked up a pair of SUPER cute crocodile (kids) slippers after the weekend.

Women's flanette shorts, by H&H. RRP 15NZD, purchased for 7.50NZD

The shorts are pure white btw, I don’t know why the image can’t brighten it to the correct white without washing out half the shorts :L

Croc slippers, by WZ. RRP 19NZD, purchased for 9.50NZD

AREN’T THEY THE CUTEST!?!?

I’m still going to tell everyone who comments on them IRL that they’re dragon slippers. Nobody will know any better hehe

 

Next, I bought activewear!

This is my first piece of non-sale item. And it’s from Cotton On wtf. It was $35 and under on every item in store at the Albany Megacentre branch. I don’t think this was a good deal, but it was comfortable and $35 on sportswear isn’t that bad so…I let myself have it ><

I purchased 2 more items from Rebel Sports too – they had a 25% off on pretty much everything in store sale. And some items were discounted even further! Unfortunately I didn’t find anything THAT cheap but my mom picked up a jacket for $35 (half price)

Crop top, Youth Sports. RRP 45NZD, purchased for 34NZD

Sportswear is so damn expensive /sigh

The only other pair of long running pants I have was also $60 – purchased them from the New Balance outlet store in beachhaven. Running gear is so expensive across the board that this $60 didn’t seem outrageous. I was just glad to get some sort of discount :L

And I really needed these pants for my half marathon in a couple days. They’re perfect – light, fitted, and best of all – have a pocket at the tailbone where I can store a card AND my phone!

In that sense, these pants were a damn good buy. I wouldn’t be able to carry my phone if I wore my other pants – and they’re heavier and thicker than these!

 

Anyway, that sums up my labour weekend bargain hunt! Did you find any good deals this weekend?

 

  • If you have a Kmart near you, definitely check it out for their gym gear! I bought a pair of capri compression gym leggings for $12!

    • I do (Albany mall woot woot) and it’s my usual Thursday night go-to for a post-dinner walk xD

      Last time I tried on a pair of gym leggings from them it was too thin (could see my underwear color/shape through it!) so double check on yours!! I’ll go try some other ones though – maybe it was just that pair :/

  • You changed your layout again? o: WOOO fitness #hype! I see those shorts have a zip for the pockets awesoooome. GOOD LUCK FOR YOUR HALF MARATHON. 😀

    • Dear lord, the layout is messing with me x’D I just want something 100% minimal and clean while I sort my life out! hahaha /sob

      THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I can’t wait for it to just be over tbh. I want to get back to my resistance training and HIIT 😛
