Yesterday I posted about craving colours and I don’t just mean adding a pop in between my blacks and greys but actually style it up in living colours. Why have I been living in the darker range of the colour family you ask? Well for one, I’ve always bought into the notion that black is slimming. But – if I have to be really honest with you (and with myself, sucks when I have to be honest to me), it’s the absolute easy way out to dressing up. You put on black and call it a day! Yes, you can never go wrong with it yet, you’re not pushing any boundaries with it either.
You know I’m all about testing boundaries, getting out of comfort zones and trying something new these days! I suppose reading Chas’ post (the chic and talented blogger of From Denim to Dessert) couldn’t have come in a better time as she featured a company that I am very pleased to hear about:
Zobha (meaning grace, beauty and brilliance in Sanskrit) is a yoga and fitness apparel company that offers a wide range of exceptional active wear. Form + function is the best way to describe designs that use superior performance fabric and details that marries effortless movement with classic cuts and fashionable style.

p.s. did I mention that I need a new Yoga Mat?
