Call me old fashioned but given it’s the first blog of 2015, Instant Goddess is going to have to touch on work-out gear…yes, yes, I know, but it’s probably the only time of the year that we will talk about sportswear, so bear with me and best foot forward Goddesses!
For basics in Hong Kong you can’t go wrong with Cotton On and if you subscribe to their mailing list you currently get 30% off your first online order. Shipping is free over $800. Nike and Addidas brands are available on ASOS and Next which means you can get hold of often hard-to-come-by trainers in larger sizes (up to a UK 9). Shipping on both ASOS and Next is free but Next deliver quicker in only 4 working days as opposed to 10 days with ASOS. House of Fraser have a cracking selection of sportswear and a new favourite is Lorna Jane an Aussie brand with its catchy slogans and vibrant use of colour. Shipping costs approx. $120 and takes up to 10 days with House of Fraser. Limited items by Lorna Jane are also available on Zalora. Another brand that caught the Instant Goddess roving eye is Phat Budda available on Shopbop for its quirky but practical designs.

Amazingly, Instant Goddess is still nursing a wee bit of a shopping hangover after over doing it on Black Friday and Cyber Monday but if one were to throw shopping caution to the wind for those grey days these would hit the old shopping trolley:
And if you’re all for being super-duper organised and have a summer wedding coming up or are just looking for a bit of daytime posh to spruce up your wardrobe then maybe these might tickle your fancy.
Midweek Meal Inspiration
Obviously, with all the workout gear above and with most of us feeling the strain of all that festive gluttony it just HAS to be something relatively healthy this week. So, Instant Goddess is very much liking the look and taste of this Roast Salmon with Pesto Sauce and Beetroot Slaw over on BBC GoodFood.

Until next time Goddesses and remember you are ALWAYS, ALWAYS worth it XX
