State of Mind active-wear

There’s nothing more annoying than your top riding up while you’re trying to exercise or your trousers edging down your bottom when you’re trying to follow steps in a class. Plus, it’s scary enough starting a new exercise regime at the gym when you’re unfamiliar with the machines and surrounded by people that seem to know what they’re doing and are super fit and super svelte.

Well, now you can stop worrying about your gym kit as State of Mind has come to the rescue with it’s range of practical and original pieces in gorgeous, timeless colours and high performance fabrics purpose cut for the size 16+ market.

The initial collection features 13 core pieces in sizes 16-26 available exclusively online from stateofmindactive.com. Founded by sisters Kerensa Sheen and Michaela Milne, these ladies really understand the clothing needs of the fuller figure with all of the collection’s tops featuring a longer back as standard; flattering side ruching to disguise wobbly bits and adjustable waistbands which can be worn high for a smooth line over the tummy or rolled down for a low-rise look.

So throw away your ex’s manky old t-shirt and those shapeless joggers and commit to getting fit and healthy with a fab new workout wardrobe.

Co-founder Kerensa Sheen said, “We created State of Mind to give women like us the clothes they need to get out and to feel confident.  When you look good, you feel better about yourself and you shouldn’t have to sacrifice style for comfort.” Quite right.

State of Mind are also launching a swimwear range featuring 11 pieces with innovative design features that solve the problems larger ladies face when buying swimwear, such as a skirtini which helps avoid leg chaffing and a swimdress that solves the problem of de-robing poolside – you don’t take it off, you just wear it in! Brilliant.  

The State of Mind range is all designed and manufactured exclusively in Britain, which is just another reason to love what they’re doing.

Visit stateofmindactive.com to see all the great workout gear. Now, there really is no excuse not to get fit this year. (The swimwear range will be available online from the 25 May.)

    Nissan tests self-cleaning paint that could make car washes obsolete

    During this vile, never-ending winter, motorists had three options to keep their cars clean: Shell out on regular car washes; slave away in the cold, wind and snow washing it yourself, or screw it and just drive a dirty car. I, like many, chose the last option. But if only I'd been able to test Nissan's self-cleaning car, all my troubles would have washed away.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers. The developed world evolved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy to the service age, then to the knowledge economy in the late 1990s and 2000s marked by breakthroughs in technological innovations and competition for innovation with new products and processes that develop from the research community. According to The Work Foundation, the knowledge economy is driven by the demand for higher value added goods and services created by more sophisticated, more discerning, and better educated consumers and ...
