THE VOGUE AMIGO BY SIMRAN GILL
This blog is the brain child of Simran Gill, an academician by profession. It is her sheer love towards fashion that inspired Simran to start the 'Vogue Amigo' blog. The intention is to bring to the audience an eclectic mix of individual fashion sensibilities with comfort being of paramount importance, and yet being able to push the boundaries.
“Fit&Fab” is the new age mantra! All of us aspire to live a healthy and fit lifestyle. With the kind of hectic schedules that we follow, its imperative to stay health conscious. When I say “health conscious”, it not only means being physically fit but having a holistic approach towards life!
Being a Punjabi, I’m naturally drawn towards my Aloo-Paranthas (Flat bread stuffed with mashed potatoes and herbs) and Rajma Chawal (Rice and kidney bean curry). I don’t really compromise with food and being blessed with a fairly good metabolism is an added bonus! But that doesn’t take away from the fact that I’ve always been into fitness, be it in the form of dancing, running or working out in the gym. However, after I resumed teaching, my schedule went haywire with having to mange both my school work as well as the blog. That left me with hardly any time to focus on fitness which eventually started affecting my health and mood.
Hence, I’ve been making some real efforts to follow a fit regime. I try going to the gym at least 4 days in a week and also dedicate some time to Yoga which helps me stay calm amidst all the mental pressure.
It was precisely during this time while I was conversing with Tarini Nirula, that she happened to inform me about her new line of “Yoga Tote Bags”. Being an ardent yoga practitioner herself, she believes this tote is an ode to all the yoginis and fashion enthusiasts! This collection has beautiful handmade illustrations depicting peace, wellness and joy! Considering how important it is to have the right workout gear and essentials, the Yoga Tote Bag is the perfect companion, designed to hold all your workout essentials. So here you have a bag which is not only stylish but also utilitarian. High-five to that!! You can carry this bag for Yoga, Pilates, gym or even when you go out for brunch, shopping, or head to the beach, hence proving its versatility!
I’ve styled this Yoga tote bag with my current favorite printed New look tights, neon tank top and Nike running shoes. Keeping in mind the essence of the story, I kept my hair in a high pony and my face with barely any makeup.
Do let me know your views on this story. Your feedback is always valued!
Stay fit, stay healthy!
