Favourite Things Giveaway #1

Ashley Johns of Fierce Forward and I have been planning some big things for you all for quite some time now.  If you haven’t checked Ashley out yet, she is a health and fitness blogger, works with bodybuilding.com, and has been featured in both Shape and Oxygen Magazine.  We have teamed up to host some giveaways for our readers, featuring some of our favourite brands.

We are so excited to announce that we are launching our first giveaway today!  What’s up for grabs?

1.  Ashley recently created her own line of FIERCE apparel so one of her tanks is going to be all yours!  There are two different styles to choose from.  You can check out the rest of her products at her Fierce Forward Shop.

2.  I had a giveaway on my blog a few months ago for Neocell Collagen Sport protein powder which you can read about here.  Jean over at Neocell has been kind enough to offer up another contain of protein powder for one lucky reader.  It is a completely clean whey protein that does not contain any gluten, wheat, sugar, or lactose.  I have tried both the vanilla and chocolate flavours and they are equally delicious.

3.  I don’t know about you, but a sports bra can make or break my workout.  If the ladies aren’t comfortable, my workout suffers.  The last thing you want to have to worry about in the middle of a run is chafing, lack of coverage/support, or discomfort.  I discovered Handful sports bras a while back (which I wrote about here) and it is one of the best.  It is super supportive, feminine, and comfortable.

4.  I also had two giveaways not too long ago for G-LOVES which you can check out here and here.  G-LOVES are not only the hottest weight lifting gloves, but they are so comfortable and functional.  They are lightweight, have great cushioning, and an “action traction” grip to avoid any ginormous weights from slipping out of your hand and landing on your face, feet, etc.

How’s that for a lineup?!  I’m considering entering myself! 😉

The winner will basically be ready to rock a fierce workout in some new gear and then replenish those gorgeous muscles with some yummy protein!

Here is what you need to do to enter:

“LIKE” Ashley’s Fierce Forward page on Facebook

“LIKE” Neocell Collagen Sport on Facebook

“LIKE” Handful on Facebook

“LIKE” G-LOVES on Facebook

**If you DO NOT have Facebook, just leave me a comment below telling me which product you are most excited to try!**

THAT’S IT!  Just show these amazing people and companies some love (feel free to leave them comments on their Facebook pages too!) and come back here telling me you did in the comments below. (Hint: increase your chances of winning by commenting on Ashley’s blog too!)

Ashley and I will be combining comments/entries and a winner will be chosen via random.org on Wednesday, June 20th.

Good luck to everyone!!

    Hi, Christina! I liked all of the Facebook pages! I have been following Ashley on Facebook for a while, and I am excited to have found your Facebook and blog! Both of you girls are such an inspiration!

  46. 189

    Carmen says

    Your blog is wonderful, what I like the most is the versatility if your vegetarian recipes. A great inspiration to return to my roots as vegan which I put on hold for a while as I got pregnant and delivered a healthy baby almost 7 months ago. My diet changed to animal protein by the end of my first trimester when tofu, seitan, brown rice, legumes from all of the sudden were not of my liking anymore. Strange! I am slowly transitioning, though.

  47. 193

  67. 274

    Ann Marie says

    I have been considering buying the Handful sports bra in pink for a few days now. Great cause and looks comfortable. I also would love the pink/red tank from Ashley as well. Great color and the message. I already have my own preferred brand of protein, but liked all the pages regardless. Always open to new info. Love the Fashletics top in the top pic. I have the matching drawstring bag as well as a few necklaces and a shirt.

  68. 275

    Ashley Isaacs says

    So excited for this giveaway! I’ve been eyeing G-loves for a while, now! Thank you for this chance to win some AWESOME gear!

    No Facebook here! But thanks for the opportunity to participate by commenting! I would love to try the gloves. I’m in need of trying some out with the heavy lifting we are into now! :-)

  73. 288

    Marsha says

    I am most excited about trying the Neocell protein powder. I am currently not using protein powder because 1. I wanted to see what the difference would be and 2. I was told you should change em up ever so often and I couldn’t decide what to try.
    I don’t really weight train *(body weight exercises sometimes with dumbbells) so I don’t think the G-Loves (amazing name) would benefit me and my supersized boobies can’t fit into the Handful sports bras. Right, cuz I am working with more than a handful over here. Blessed? Depends on the day. Love the Fierce idea so I would also love to run in a Fierce tank.
    I sometimes ramble. Can you give your opinions on working out with and without a protein supplement please?

    Thank you much!!

  74. 289

    danielle s says
