In case you’ve been living under a rock (or you know, just not on social media), UNIT NINE is an Australian brand that has been seriously shaking up the sports accessories market since their launch in December 2016. Their gear is super high quality, fun and unique, and they’re looking to inspire people to get moving and have lots of fun while doing it. I had a chat to their founder Anna Whiteside to learn more about the brand and how it came about. Oh, and I convinced her to GIVE AWAY ONE OF THEIR SIGNATURE YOGA MATS. The competition is super easy to enter, and all the details are at the end of this post.

OK I need to preface this chicken and corn soup recipe by saying that the core of it is from an old Women’s Weekly recipe. It’s been my favourite soup since I was a kid, and it’s so easy to make! As I’ve grown into an adult (who still needs her mum to remind her of the original recipe) I’ve made some minor changes, upped the heat and bulked it out a little (because #carbs)….
Has anyone else noticed that New Balance is kicking some serious style goals recently? I started getting back into their gear – both shoes and activewear – about 18 months ago, and I actually think they might be getting better each season. In fact, my New Balance Foam Zante are by far (like, I’m talking a ratio of 20:1) the most worn shoe in my athletic shoe wardrobe… and I have a lot of shoes in that particular wardrobe….
OK, so by now you know that I’m all about making fitness more accessible, right? God I hope you do, otherwise I really need to work on my story-telling skills. Anyway. I’m a big fan of any other brand, business or human trying to do the same thing….
