(Fitness Fashion) Fabletics Giveaway

I have an exciting giveaway for you guys today!

Fabletics is a fitness apparel company that is designed to provide stylish, affordable workout gear to keep you moving. I have been eyeing some of their pieces over the past couple of months and am thrilled to be working with them on this review!

From comfortable and flowy to tight and fitted, they have a variety of looks and materials for all sorts of body and fitness types. I just love the looks of their new bright prints and colors this season!

I have seen some of their cute and unique outfits pop up in magazines and all over social media, so I was interested to find out more about the company and how they work.

Fabletics is co-founded by Kate Hudson who I absolutely adore.

She has a casual, cool style about her that certainly shows through the look of her designs with this line.

You can choose to order pieces straight from their website at the regular retail price or become a VIP Member and receive a full outfit sent to you each month for $49.95. Similar to other styling services, you fill out a style profile to help pick what items would suit you best and always have the option to skip a month when you need to.

Compared to other designer brands that offer similar looks, the prices for the quality of their pieces are very affordable!

I was asked to pick out a handful of them I was drawn to in their latest collection, and instantly fell for this fun high intensity print that also happens to be included in Kate’s Favorite Styles.

I went with a stylish, yet comfortable outfit selection that I could wear to classes at the gym or even on an active day around town. Lately, I have been loving moisture wicking materials that allow me to break a sweat without requiring a shower directly after my workout.

I received a shipment of mix and match pieces that has certainly spiced up my every day gym fashion, and have been wearing them on rotation since I put them on for the first time. Check them out!

My favorite type of legging this year has been the capri length, so when I saw this pair with the unique mesh design, I had to have them.

It may sound silly, but having a handful of vibrant, stand out pieces to my workout wardrobe instantly gets me motivated to get out there and move something. Or… in this case, get my yoga on in the backyard.

I was able to give every piece a good wear before we left for vacation and have been somewhat living in the Lima Capris. I like to call them my “party” pants and have received a ton of compliments while wearing them!

The Norwalk Tank is ideal for studio classes with the built in bra and mesh material. I like the adjustable hem and stretchy feel and flow.

The matching sports bra is also a stand out item to me. I love the back design and feel fully comfortable wearing it on it’s own without additional support. I was worried about the size, and ended up going up one more than my normal (Small instead of XS) after browsing their sizing chart.

The tops seem to fit very true to size, while the bottoms had me questioning between two sizes. I ended up ordering the smaller (XS) after looking at their pant size suggestions, and think they would be even more comfortable if I just stuck to my normal order size (Small). Did that confuse you?

What I am trying to say is don’t pay too much attention to the sizing chart. Initially, I was worried that the pants would run large, but in the end they fit just like most other brands. Stick to what you know!

Even so, I’m still very happy with my shipment and have a feeling you will see these items show up in my photos often.

I wasn’t fully sure about the white Havana Coverup tee at first, but as soon as I put it on I loved the feel of the open back and soft burnout fabric. It will be great to have to throw on to and from hot yoga classes!

And last, but not least I’ll be saving the mesh capris for those days where I’m feeling extra sassy. Love them!

Emergen-C (Fizzy Vitamins!) Giveaway

I am participating in a sponsored post by Emergen-C®. I received compensation for this post. While all opinions stated are my own, I make no claims about Emergen-C as a product or its effectiveness.

I’m always on the lookout for ways to stay healthy, especially throughout the summer when our schedules and travels are all over the place.

Lucky for me, a package full of vitamin mix packets I have been turning to and loving for years showed up on my doorstep a few weeks ago!

Emergen-C review and giveaway

Emergen-C is a fizzy, fun drink packed with vitamins that comes in a variety of flavors including Immune+, Kidz, and Specialty Formula lines.

Mixed into water, these little packets provide immune support year-round while naturally enhancing your energy.

Just one serving packs a punch with more Vitamin C than ten oranges - based on using the USDA.gov nutrient database value for a large, raw orange - and features essential and immune-supporting nutrients including 1,000mg of Vitamin C, zinc, manganese, and B vitamins!

Emergen-C vitamin mix

There are over twenty different flavors to choose from that can easily serve as a refreshing morning, late night or even post-workout treat.

Over the years, I have tried several of them, but have my eyes on the Emergen-C Tropical, Cranberry-Pomegranate, and Lemon-Lime flavors to pick up when my current supply runs out.

Their website offers tons of ideas on how to use the packets in smoothies, popsicles, mock-tails, yogurt parfaits, and even in baked goods and dips!

While the drink mix doesn’t claim to prevent sickness or diseases, packing in an extra high dosage of vitamins can’t do anything but help your overall health and wellness routine. Since I received my boxes, I have been enjoying a packet alongside my coffee first thing in the morning to get my day started off on the right note.

You can take Emergen-C anywhere and the packets are ideal for anyone who travels often and is on-the-go. I tested that theory out at camp during our recent trip to Florida!

Every morning, I was sure to include my Emergen-C vitamins into my (alternative to camp) breakfast to help me get energized and ready to take on the day. Hello, electrolytes!

And just so you know, the makers of the vitamin supplement drink mix support more than your health and energy. Emergen-C also supports important causes and contributes to organizations that are making a difference all throughout the world.

In a matter of seconds, offer your family added vitamins into their daily routines in just a few easy steps:

• Pick your flavor packet, and shake the powder down to the bottom.

• Tear across the top and pour powder into a glass. Add water (remember, think small amounts of water here!)

• Stir it up and cheers to having a happy, healthy day!
