Imma gonna shoot you straight. I don't look forward to working out. It's hard. It takes an entire internal conversation to force myself into sneakers. Like all of us, when I'm done - I feel fantastic! Before kids I ran 45 minutes daily intermixed with biweekly pilates sessions. Diapers took over my life and I found myself craving that "me" time. That one hour of head-clearing, Jay-Z jamming, heaving sweating, heart pounding, body rockin' toning that only a run outside can offer. 

Turns out my old college tees were not cutting it anymore. It was time for me to step up my activewear game. Enter Marika.

The Marika Magic Slimming Capri is the perfect mix of cotton and spandex sucking you in in all the right places without sacrificing comfort. Find me a 30 year old that doesn't want tummy control and a fit booty in their activewear!
