The Australian Activewear line you NEED in your life

Morning read...SERIOUSLY LOVE THIS! ♡ . Fifteen Small Steps to Happiness: . 1. Push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise. . 2. Push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable. . 3. Erase processed food from your diet. start with no lollies, chips, biscuits, then erase pasta, rice, cereal, then bread. use the rule that if a child couldn’t identify what was in it, you don’t eat it. . 4. Get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else. . 5. Stretch. Start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything. . 6. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice. .

I started following Lisa Trujillo on instagram when my good mumma blogger friend Steph from @justanothermummyblog started modelling her activewear. I was immeditaely drawn to her page after seeing how great her activewear looked on Steph!

From Lisa's website:

Lisa Trujillo Active Wear was born from the plight of women who struggled to find tights that not only looked great but were functional as well. Founder, Lisa, a personal trainer and gym instructor found that a common complaint from her female clientele was that they struggled finding good quality tights that looked great, performed well during training and made them feel confident as well.
So she set about doing something about this and that's where Lisa Trujillo Active Wear was born. The high waist of the tights allows for the stomach to be tucked in, a major concern for women and the signature cut of the tights helps to emphasise the tone and look of the legs. 

I didn't purchase anything straight away due to low funds but after following Lisa for a couple of months and seeing what a passionate, driven, motivating woman she was, and finally saving up some money, I just HAD to support her. I kind of didn't care if I didn't LOVE the clothes, I wanted to support this woman because I believe she will achieve great things and help so many women around the world be more confident and love themselves. Just read her posts on Instagram and see for yourself. You will learn something from most of her captions.


After receiving my first package of the 'Salt and Pepper' tights and the 'heart print off cut tee' in Black, I was in LOVE. If you follow my Instagram, you would have seen Immediately confessed my love for the line after wearing the outfit to the gym that very night and being more impressed than I had ever been over a pair of gym tights.

What is FITNESS? 💪🏽 . Fitness... . Is it lean physiques with abs? Is it lifting heavy? Is it a number on the scales? Is it a certain body fat percentage? Is it being able to walk up stairs without being breathless? Is it running after your children or grandchildren? Is it getting old and being able to look after yourself? Is it being able to run to catch a bus? Is it being fit enough to travel and experience the world? Is it challenging your body to its physical limits? . . Fitness is different for everyone. What matters most is that you do the style which makes you happy, you feel good and keeps you in a positive frame of mind. 🌻 . Don't conform or feel pressure to be or look a certain way. Each girl has their own versions of what fitness is and that's ok 😽 . What is fitness to you? #LISATRUJILLO ♡

They are INCREDIBLY comfortable, squat proof (there is no way any one is going to see your underwear in these babies as you can see above) and they're high wasted, which for me, as a mum who hasn't particularly been the most strict on her diet and still has a bit of a belly, makes me feel so much more secure when I'm in the gym and gives me the confidence I need to push hard.

After falling in love I just HAD to make another order. I ordered the 'Jet Black' tights, the 'Harlequin' tights and the 'Heart Print Cut Off Tee' in grey. I was a little apprehensive as I could see that the rest of Lisa's tights were a different type of material to the 'Salt and Pepper' so wasn't sure if they would be as good. Low and behold, they are! They are Lycra rather than cotton however, still thick enough to be squat proof and still thin enough to be comfortable.


It's like she is some sort of magical tight wizard that is able to answer the prayers of all the women gym goers around the world!

To be honest with you, I just want to buy everything she makes at this point. To be able to give my money to a local business that is also run by an incredible woman is such a good feeling. And the fact that the products are actually comparable if not BETTER than some of the top active wear lines, tells me this woman is going places.

WORLD... look out for Lisa Trujillo!

Which tights do you like the look of the most??? The camo in full length are next on my list!

*** I have been in touch with Lisa who has noticed me OBSESSING over her line and she has kindly offered us a discount code for FREE SHIPPING which saves $10 at the check out! CODE IS: TH10

Note that I am sitting at a squishy 12-14 at the moment and I order M size tights and my singlets are S however if they came in M.

Keep smiling!
