New Look Fit Kit

There’s nothing like a brand new fit kit to incentivise your workouts.  Thanks to the nice people at New Look I’m now covered in bold prints, matching co-ords and slogan tees which are light and comfortable. New Look has managed to create a range that is performance focused whilst looking completely awesome and very ‘now’, and what’s more, I got to be apart of their campaign video!

The shoot was one of my favourites I’ve done in ages for many reasons. For one, I got to hang out with two of my best fit friends Adrienne and Kim. Adrienne taught me a badass dance routine in between takes. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen on my story.

Then, I got to punch a bag. I never knew I’d feel so smug afterwards!  That bag will think twice now before giving me a dirty look.

Plus, I got to take home my favourite pieces from the collection, including the Marble Print Leggings and top below.

Life’s too short for a boring fit kit and I think New Look got the memo. What do you think of the collection?

Rare London Nude Lace Up Tailored Jumpsuit

Jumpsuit for tall girls

Three cheers for the most versatile jumpsuit ever. *Hip-hip hooray*. I wear out and about with trainers, dressed up with heels and I even sported it on the TV whilst presenting Trending Live on 4Music with Maya Jama.

ADIDAS TRACKSUIT

Now here's an adidas fit kit that has put a smile on my face. 

ADIDAS AJ Odudu

The women's training hoodie comes with an adjustable drawcord on the hood that lets you cinch up your look and is so comfortable I actually wear it to lounge at home in.

I'm also keeping up with training in these women's full-length tights. They're super warm and feature an elastic waist with an eye catching graphic print with the signature 3-Stripes.

You can still catch the workouts that I created with adidas for their recent #WorkIt summer campaign on the adidas women's Facebook page. 

ADIDAS BOOST

Hope you like my new tracksuit.

Lisa Maree & H&M Swimwear

Need last minute swimwear for a spontaneous sunny getaway? I have got you covered.

Lisa Maree Swimwear SUMMER

This cream Lisa Maree swimsuit is knitted which feels pretty odd to begin with but you soon get used to it. I didn't dare get into the water with it on, afraid it would lose it's shape, so instead I wore it with a high wasted maxi skirt and by the pool.

Maybe it is good for swimming too but I certainly wasn't going to risk it on my trip to Ibiza, especially as I love the design so much.

The red halter neck is from H&M, true to size and in the colour red, making me ready and confident enough for a Special K advert :)

I've showed off both pieces on my YouTube channel in a swimwear look book,

Motel Rocks Swimwear

My two favourite swimsuits from Motel Rocks as warn by me on a recent trip to Ibiza are right here.

Swimwear AJ Odudu

 I feel pretty confident in a swimsuit because it's harder to flash your bits in case (like me) you decide that jumping into the deep end of a pool repeatedly is better than the less child-like option of stepping into the pool gracefully. 

Swimwear AJ Odudu

Both swimsuits are size small which fits a UK size 10 but probably get a medium in the backless swimsuit if you have big boobs or are taller than 5 ft 8.

DJing In Century Club London

Here's a little throwback to when I took my weekly radio chart show live to the Century Club in London for LCM's SS16. I played  the finest pop tunes for Mens Fashion Week London and was joined on the show by a host of special guests including Jai'me from BoyMeetsFashion.com at the exclusive Century Club on Shaftsbury Avenue. 

Presenting Live for Hoxton Radio AJ Odudu

The private members lounge was transformed into a boudoir of decadence where I also chatted with founders of Drakes of London, Dermologica and ManiBreak.

Guests were treated to hair, nails and beard trims, canapés and drinks, exclusive footage of L:CM runway and of course, live music and the sound of my dulcet tones.

It was almost too much fun.

Wireless Festival Outfit

Yesterday I went to Wireless festival in Finsbury Park London and enjoyed live music performances from many incredible acts, including Major Lazor, A$AP Rocky and my favourite, Drake.

Check out my Snapchat AJ.Odudu for exclusive video backstage action and read more about my time at the festival by clicking here.

I went courtesy of New Look, so naturally, I'm wearing New Look fashion.

My Fitness Wardrobe #1

Here's a fit kit that quite literally brightens up my workouts. The trainers come true to size and offer light support and great flexibility to boost range of motion and promote strength in your feet for barefoot running.

Despite my longish legs (I'm 5ft8), these leggings fit in a size small without rolling down. They have reflective elements so you are unmissable when training in low visibility, they are made with Dri-Fit fabric helping you stay dry and comfortable during your sweaty workouts and they even have a discreet zip pocket for storage of gym keys and other small items. Not to mention the colour which I love. 

The poncho is more of a style addition rather than functional active wear but it's lightweight, waterproof and the adjustable hood offers great cover, meaning that this jacket is certainly coming with me to a few of the Great British festivals I have lined up this summer.

 If you like it, try it, tell me if you buy it

When I Attended Mark Ronson's Album Launch Party

Tweet Me: @AJOdudu | Intsagram Me: @ajodudu 

I joined Dizzie Rascal, Tom Odell, Eliza Doodlittle and Annie Mac at the BBC Studios in London this week, to attend a party hosted by Mark Ronson. It was to celebrate the launch of his brand new album, Uptown Special and I certainly got my Uptown Funk on. The event was sponsored by Skincare genius’s Kiehl’s who gave me a pre-party pamper kit so that I arrived feeling fresh as! Thank goodness Kiehl’s spruced me up as things got sweaty in there when Ronson did his thing on the decks playing funk, soul, grime and hip-hop music mixed with his own smash hits. It just so happened that I’d learnt a dance routine to Uptown Funk with SOS Fitness Dance the week before so naturally it took all of strength to refrain from bursting into my routine when he played that track. Pat on the back to me for keeping my cool.

Presenting Kim Cattrall with an Award

Tweet Me: @AJOdudu | Instagram Me: @ajodudu

This week I headed to Liverpool to host the Collective Honours Awards with former Xtra Factor presenter and stand up comedian, Matt Richardson. The award ceremony was organised by arts and style magazine, The Collective and attended by the cast of Hollyoaks including mega babes Georgie Porter and Stephanie Davis as well as the gorgeous former TOWIE star Charlie King. It was lovely to be part of such a great show and eat some proper gravy but it was even better to present Sex And The City star Kim Cattrall with the International Arts Icon award. She posed for the cameras, gushed about being back in her city of birth, and joked about following a raffle. Arh Cattrall, I love you but… I love me more (and yes, you’d have to had to watch Sex and the City to get that).

My dress was designed and made to measure for me by Mark Melia, who is based up North in Liverpool. He’s so talented and lovely. Check him out his store in Liverpool but if that’s too far, then shop some amazing frocks below to get you ready for the party season.
