HI-TEC LEO Celebrating Extraordinary Women With Their New Collection

Being a woman on the go could mean a lot of things.

I know life gets busy for most women, whether you’re working a 9 – 5, running your own business or you’re a stay at home mom.

I wake up in the morning, have to go to work, have meetings in between and also run errands.

My normal day includes writing articles in the morning, checking my emails, making sure that all my client deadlines are met and running in the evenings.

This is why I usually rock active wear, it makes it easy for me to move around and sneakers are very comfortable. I can simply go from running errands at the mall to working at the nearest coffee shop.

HI-TEC is celebrating extraordinary women with their latest Hi-TEC LEO Collection. They acknowledge that most women live lives that include juggling multiple roles at once.

This Chameleon-like Lifestyle requires comfy, effortlessly cool active-wear and that’s where the LEO Collection comes in.

“There is no doubt, that brands globally are capitalizing on the women’s market with specific attention being paid to self-ability and self-empowerment”, says Jo Esterhuizen, HI-TEC Marketing Director.

HI-TEC appreciate all these uplifting campaigns, and it is wonderful to see such a global movement.

“The LEO campaigns are not about capturing the hero moments, but the everyday moments. The HI-TEC LEO lady is self-empowered, she is self-confident, but we want her to celebrate the entire package that she is”, says Esterhuizen.

The LEO lady is what HI-TEC call a “Jade of all trades”.

The collection is proudly designed in South Africa and explores how true leisure, street and fitness wear can come together in one piece of clothing.

The soft material embraces the skin below and the bright print sparks the celebration of the strong female spirit. The purple shades are topped off with detailed feminine designs and include several layering items that will have you prepared for any type of weather. HI-TEC believes that every single woman is extraordinary. Whether you’re on your way to school, work, picking up the kids or looking for some exercise, LEO has got your back.

To celebrate YOU, I’m giving away a pair of LEO tights valued at R549.00! To enter, please tell me what makes you an extraordinary woman on the comments below, you have to be following me and HI-TEC both on Twitter and Instagram 🙂

Fit Night Out With Shield

Happy Thursday!

I hope you’ve had a productive week. Mine has been full of ups and downs but thank God it’s Friday tomorrow.

If you remember correctly black girls in the previous years have been complaining a lot about “nude” colours in clothes or even shoes. Especially dark skinned girls. Why call it nude when it doesn’t match my skin colour?

Well I recently went to photo shoot to get clothes for my collaboration with my favourite Durban creatives (@Bhekiblackwonder) who’s a photographer and Nonto Shezi (@shezinonto)


I was a bit shocked when I got to the store and they had nude active wear that looked exactly like the colour of my skin. Many people would not understand how important this is for me.

I love active wear and I even wear it on days when I’m not going to gym. There were a lot of different styles which makes it hard to choose your favourite one. I like how the tights define my body and my favourite thing about the bra is I can wear it with any outfit.

My long sleeve top is for cold days. I know it’s crazy but I have been contemplating wearing this outfit at gym as it’s my favourite outfit right now and I don’t want it to get dirty. The universe luckily listened and I was invited by Shield to The Fit Night Out Joburg at MonteCasino on Saturday the 18th of August. That’s exactly where I will be allowed to wear my outfit for the whole day and not feel bad about it. The #FNO is a Women’s Health workout party where you meet all the fitness enthusiasts.

I will be live on Insta during the workouts and I will also take a lot of pictures so stay tuned to my social media pages. My workout outfit will definitely be from Cotton On Body.
