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
