Gigi Hadid is the Newest Face of Team Penshoppe!

Penshoppe never ceases to amaze me. Every time they announce a new face in their team, I am always in awe, standing there with my mouth open, slow-clapping while slowly shaking my head because… just… WOW. And, of course, they have done it again: this time around, Penshoppe has welcomed Gigi Hadid to the team - and everyone went wild at the news (so much so, in fact, that people thought I was joking when I tweeted about it after the event).

Yes, this is foreal, guys!!!

Still don't believe me? Then watch Gigi's video for Penshoppe here:

Here's to hoping she'll come visit Manila soon!

Coz come on: who wouldn't want to meet Gigi Hadid, especially after she had that stunning #relationshipgoals photo shoot with Zayn Malik - a shoot I loved so much, it ended up on my iPhone's wallpaper for a while. <3

Clearly, there's no stopping Penshoppe on its mission to put the Philippines front and centre in the glamorous world of international fashion.

Gigi's first campaign with Penshoppe is all about the Penshoppe Power Stretch jeans, a line of specialty pants that are so soft, comfy and stretchable that you can do yoga in them (no joke!) Check out some of the photos at the fashion show that we witnessed before the big Gigi reveal:

As you can see, the jeans are fashionable enough to be worn on casual days out and even on nights out, but what I love the most about them is that you won't feel constricted in them at all. In fact, you won't even feel like you're wearing jeans to begin with.

Why did they choose Gigi for this? Well, Jeff Bascon, Brand Director of Penshoppe, explains that Gigi's personality simply suits the Power Stretch Jeans best.

"These pieces were designed for girls who just won't sacrifice comfort for style. Gigi is just that. She has a naturally relaxed fashion style that is mainly composed of skinny pants, a crop top or t-shirt, and cool sneakers."

Hmm. Sounds a lot like my own fashion style. No wonder I love these jeans so much. Haha. Seriously, though. I would highly recommend you try the jeans. They're so stretchy and comfy, I'm actually going to be trying them out in an Aerial Hoop class this week. I'll let you know how that goes. :)

The Penshoppe Power Stretch Jeans are now available in stores nationwide! For more updates, like Penshoppe on Facebook and follow them on Twitter and Instagram: @penshoppe

New ZX Flux ASYM: Exactly What I Need to Stay Motivated This Summer

Truth be told: the last thing I want to do in this summer heat is exercise and work out. As such, it makes sense that I've gained a whopping six pounds within the past month... And I hate myself for it.

This might sound stupid, but I think one of the reasons behind this lack of motivation is a lack of good shoes. Call this an excuse to buy new ones, but it's true. Whenever I buy a new pair of shoes, I'm always raring to go out and do things, so I figure a new pair of shoes to work out in is something that I definitely need to get myself up and going this summer.

Well, adidas Originals has just released two new renditions of the left-field ZX FLUX Racer ASYM with an eye-catching visual aesthetic and the gym whore in me is suddenly raring to buy them and workout STAT.

Offered in core black and blue colorways with untouchable sunshine vibes, they're absolutely perfect for the summer!!! Don't you agree?

Erghhhhh. Why you always do this to me, adidas? Not complaining, but my wallet is groaning. A little. :p
