Favourite Things Giveaway #2

Some of you may remember the first Favourite Things Giveaway that Ashley Johns and I hosted just last month.  Well we figured it was time for another!

Handful is giving yet another one of their amazing sports bras away.  Like I said in my previous posts (here and here), it is my ultimate favourite bra.  The material is so comfortable, the straps don’t dig in, and there are removable cups that give you a little extra shape.  Their motto is flatter, not flatten.  Love it.  You need this bra.

Kara from Chickbands (who is my best friend who I’ve never met) is giving away two headbands.  I’ve talked about how much I love her bands here.  They are seriously the cutest non-slip headbands in the entire universe.  The sparkly ones are my favourite.  I have one in just about every colour to match all of my workout outfits.

HoodieBuddie is a pretty awesome company that makes hoodies that make listening to music easy!  There is a headphone jack inside the pocket that plugs into mp3 players or phones and the sound signal travels through the HoodieBuddie and into the built in headphones at the end of the drawstrings.  How cool is that?!  What’s even cooler is that they are giving one away to a lucky reader!

a few of my favourites!

Last but not least, Neocell is giving away another container of their Collagen Sport protein powder.   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.

How does that sound?!

Apparently there are some fancy rules that I’ve been breaking with all of my giveaways.  To enter the giveaway, I cannot force you to “like” the Facebook pages of the above companies but I would still love it if you did.  These companies have offered up some killer product and showing them some love would be nice! :)  If you have Facebook and would like to show support, here are their pages: Handful, Chickbands, HoodieBuddie, Neocell.  Let them know I sent you!  THANK YOU!

To enter, just leave me a comment telling me what you’re most excited to do this weekend! (You can double your chances of winning by commenting on Ashley’s blog too!)

Note:  Winner will win all four items.  Open to Canadian and US residents.

Contest ends Wednesday, July 25th!  Good luck!

      I am going hiking this weekend with my friend who has denied my invitation until now. She recently lost a lot of weight and started getting active but has been afriad everyone would pass her up and she would get embarrassed. I told we’d go at her pace and that not trying is not worth missing the beautiful Alaskan scenery here. I can’t wait to experience this “first” for her with her. I love and need all of these products!!!

    I’m excited about my whole weekend. My husband’s been out of town & gets home today so excited to be spending time with him. Also my trainer & fellow trainees are competing today at IFBB Pacific USA & I’m going to cheer them on & see what a show is all about. I just turned 40 this year & you & Tosca Reno have inspired me & put a spark back under my butt to eat clean & train with weights & workout. I’ve challenged myself to enter a fitness/bikini competition so I’m working hard & making lifestyle changes I’m truly excited about. Thank you for posting your workouts & all that you do. Love the new puppy! Have a great Dane at home & he’s my best friend :). Hope you have an amazing weekend

    I already had my weekend. I was super anxious and excited to go backpacking/mt biking with my husband and dogs! We Mt biked 7 miles into a lake with our big pack backs. Its was extremely difficult to start off with but eventually I got my balance sorted after falling off my biking going over root and rock obstacles. We were both dripping in sweat. Talk about a work out!!! HOLY MOLY! The best part was the swim in the lake at the end!

    I am most excited for family time !!!! This weekend is the local Italian feast which we as a family never miss!!! We always spend a evening with the kids going on the rides , playing the games ( the favorite is the one which u aim your squirt gun into the mouth of a clown and who’s ever bear floats to the top wins. But I have 5 kids , so between all of us playing ,we take up the whole game and one of us is guaranteed a prize …..hehe!!) Then we head over to the other side and get a taste of italian food and sit by the gazebo where the bands sings italian music. My youngest is 2 and she loves to dance and sing and I have to say , This might of been her favorite part. Can you tell we are Italian?? The last night of the feast is Sunday and we will be going back just for the traditional fireworks. The display is amazing. This is one of our yearly traditions .I also enjoyed taking the WHOLE family for our weekend walks ( well our 2 yr. old gets to tow along in the jogging strolling :-))
