My Plea to Lululemon Plus an Erin Condren Giveaway

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
Hi Lululemon are you there?  It’s me Amanda!  Sidenote….did y’all have to read that book growing up?  From Amazon If anyone tried to determine the most common rite of passage for preteen girls in North America, a girl’s first reading of Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret”.  Like honestly this was a reading assignment in elementary school?  Do they still require that nowadays?….Another side note I have been blogging since November and I just realized I could add color font?  Wow Amanda way to get with the program!

Okay moving along this is my attempt to reach Lululemon….I emailed those amazing yoga pants making peeps on their website feedback page but with no luck.  I should tell you I have actually cut back on my Lululemon purchases as of recent.  I have found better quality with Athleta and the brands sold at my Barre studio such as Karma and Splits 59.  I even have picked up some sweet Target finds as well.  However I do have one favorite Lululemon top that nobody has recreated yet.  It is called the Turbo Tank.  It is a spin off of their No Limits Tank but in my opinion way better (so descriptive I know….I’ll get into the specifics stay with me).  

Okay so the straps are wider and thicker and they don’t cut into you like the No Limits Tank does.  Plus it comes up higher and straps you in better so that when you are teaching a Spin class and leaning over up in the third position you are not giving a free show to your front row.  

It has a nice little cut out on the side that helps with breathing but doesn’t show too much skin that you couldn’t run to the grocery store in it afterwards (I totally know I have a bony back….I can finally do like 8 full body pushups before I hear creaking and cracking in my back….the joys of pushing 30).

So here is my dilemma (I know this isn’t really that major).  They haven’t had this style in the actual stores for like 2 years.  I have been buying mine from girls in Canada off of Ebay (Lululemon is based out of there).  Also because there are not that many out there the Ebay prices are all jacked up….nothing makes me more mad then paying more than it is in the actual store.

So until Lululemon brings this style back any girls in Canada happen to have any Turbo Tanks in a size 4 or 6 laying around?  :-)

Moving along! As I mentioned here before….I am doing my first giveaway yeah!!!!  Okay so from this post I mentioned my Erin Condren planner that helps me organize my crazy life.  I bought mine with a $20 off coupon code that now ceases to exist….booooo.  So I emailed their media relations team about helping with a giveaway for my readers because I think everyone should have one of these Life Planners.  I searched high and low for a planner and this one fit all the criteria!  You can even customize it with your name and pictures (naturally the pics cost extra).  My blogging notebook makes a guest appearance as well.

It has nice calendar tabs on the side, a front folder and snap shut sleeve in the back.

So without further ado my first giveaway!  A $50 giftcard to spend at Erin Condren.com  You can spend it on anything but I would recommend this Life Planner.  What would you spend it on? The giveaway will be open for 1 week good luck!!!!!  xoxoxoxoxoxo

Disclaimer….I did not get paid for this post nor received any free merchandise I just really love my planner that I bought and reached out to EC to help with a giveaway! Enjoy!

    Love these planners! I had never heard of them until really recently – but it’s cute that you can personalize photos and even the stickers too :)

    I’m a huge Lulu fan as well and own a couple of the no-limits tank however I know exactly what your talking about (giving a show to the front row). Also, I find that when I’m doing certain barre exercises like the pretzel it can definitely make a gal a little self conscious.

    PS I NEED that planner in my life, ha! If I won I would definitely have to have the planner.

    Well if that doesn’t make them bring this top back to stores, im not sure what will! I always find it hard to get support with tanks like that – you know due to chest issues haha!!

    So I’m really loving that planner and have been dying to buy one!! It would bring so much joy to my organizing heart lol!

    I am a planner freak and would totally love this!! They are so gorgeous and make organizing your life fun! I would use this for keeping track of school, my workouts, and everyday events that I need to remind myself of. I need this! :)

    I’ve been wanting to try Athleta! I love lulu as much as the next girl… But I’ve heard a lot of goo stuff from Athleta too.

  10. January 22, 2014 / 2:59 PM

    I love lulu lemon, but agree that for the quality they certainly shouldn’t be as expensive as they are. I’ll check out Athleta – I’ve heard great things at a low cost!

    I was inspired when you showed me your planner in December and I ordered one a couple weeks ago– can’t wait for it to arrive!! I am obsessed with the No limits tank and would love the style above with “more coverage”!! Fingers crossed they offer it again in stores or I may order from ebay too ;)

  12. January 22, 2014 / 3:46 PM

    ps i want that tank! i hope they start selling it in US stores!

  13. January 22, 2014 / 4:48 PM

    Looking gorgeous in your gym clothes, girl! I am an Athleta girl, myself… this brand never disappoints. I too, have scored some fab workout gear at Target. Also, I’m hearing good things about Old Navy workout wear lately but haven’t tried it yet.

    Haha we really do have a similar post today :) Love it!

    That tank is super cute! I really want to get back into working out, especially since I love tank tops like that so much and want to look good in them ha ha.
    I could use a cute new planner!

  19. January 22, 2014 / 11:53 PM

    Ha! I actually REALLY need a planner and am on the market for one right now!

    Also, I kind of have a mission against Lululemon. I don’t know about right now, but their CEO was pretty much a racist db and the company did some things that were not very cool (at least in my opinion – my rant from a year or two ago is here lol). That being said, they make some cute things I’d like to own!

    Great giveaway! I would definitely use the credit for a planner. I was obsessed with my planner and color coded everything. I transitioned to my google calendar, but I miss having a real planner.

  22. January 24, 2014 / 8:19 PM

    Comfort is the main key when it comes to yoga. You want to be more comfortable so that you can focus on your exercises not on clothes. So, always wear Lululemon yoga clothing which looks good and easily fit on every body type.
