Today's ALC (AikA's Love Closet) is a bit of different than usual, brining you more of the "healthy & athletic" side of fashion!
If you have followed me on my Insta (If you haven't, please follow me!), you probably know that I've been teaming up with David Barton Gym for the #LookBetterNaked challenge!
Back in June, I was super thrilled for the start of summer. I had been working very hard as a flag performer for Seafair, the biggest and most exiting summer festivals in Seattle. I always wanted to work out to get into better shape because I wasn't very satisfied with how I looked at the time, especially around my belly and arms. Nonetheless, because there were so many crazy things going on in my life, I never made going to a gym or even workout at home a priority. For the parade at Seafair I had to march nearly 2 miles continuously, so I seriously needed to build some muscles to be ready for that!
So I was very excited for this great offer/opportunity/challenge that David Barton Gym gave me! It was such a P E R F E C T time!
With my surprise (Like a BIG surprise!), they are not a gym AT ALL! Firstly, they are located in the center of high-end fashion brand shops, which makes me feel very luxurious every time I go to "workout!" Where in the world does a gym make you feel that way? Then, right after you step into the gym, the breathtaking futuristically architectural entrance welcomes you with upbeat DJ music, and their atmosphere really reminds me of a fancy club! (Yes, I used to love going out every Friday and Saturday!) Every single place you go, including the shower rooms and changing room, you might forget that you are actually at the gym for workout!!
On my first day, outward of the gym and me in it :)

If somebody asks me this question, without a doubt, I would immediately answer "My cell phone is definitely one of them." To me, a cell phone is not just a tool to communicate with people, it's a device that helps make my life easier and more enjoyable. I honestly can't live without it. I don't think it would be too much to say this, but it's a huge part of my life now. As a fashion blogger, I always want to be accessible to social media, net-surfing for fashion inspirations and trends, and even snapping lovely photos I unexpectedly encounter!!
However, I always get frustrated when I use up my battery so fast by multi-tasking on my phone. Navigating my way to destinations, replying to emails, facebooking/instagramming, editing photos, and more is quite a lot. Even though my cell phone has pretty good battery life, there is no way that my cel phone could survive whole day while doing so many things. Typically, my phone is dying halfway through the day. I know it's crazy, huh? So now I literally CAN'T leave my house without a phone charger!!! It's very handy and saves my life so many times! I love that I can use my cell phone as much as I want to, not panicking "Omg!! I only have 3% buttery! I need to charge my phone, but there is no place to do that!" I know the majority of you have been in these same shoes, haven't you?
