So this post is a new thing for my blog that I’ve been working on for you guys (and of course for myself). I have been working on getting a good blog photography set-up so I could do better quality fit reviews for you for online orders, and also do OOTD posts. For those of you that are OG’s to this blog you know my old set up of standing in front of the only full size mirror in my home and using my cell phone. That just wasn’t cutting it anymore with my new blog layout that I invested in and so I’ve been stressing out a bit about how to get good selfies without using that crappy mirror. I’m also not a photographer so I’m trying to learn how to properly set up the camera for lighting. I promise you I won’t be doing any photo retouching other than brightening photos. I’m not there yet as far as photo quality as you can tell, but I’m working on it. I have a few more tweaks and changes for my blog up my sleeve but those will roll out within the next few weeks and months. One of the changes I have planned is a feature that makes my photos load much quicker for you. I know that’s been a huge pain for you guys – it’s just a really involved and complicated back end adjustment.
So what do you guys think? If you have any critiques for me or suggestions, I’d love to hear it.
My ootd today is for the holiday WOD which includes some lifting, so I have to bring my lifting shoes. I love my nike metcons but I’ve found they dig in just underneath the lateral malleolus on my foot with certain lifts.
I sized down in the Going Places Hooded Jacket on my friends recommendation. I loved this jacket when it first uploaded but when I purchased it in my TTS I just didn’t like how boxy it was on me. I returned it, then went to repurchase it a few weeks later because I was so torn on it and my friend told me I needed to try the size down first. Voila! Sizing down solved the boxy fit issues I was having with this jacket and I love it so much more now. I think it’s the perfect to/from jacket for the gym because it’s light weight, and you can throw it on after a workout when you start to get very cold and it really keeps you warm without overheating you.
