Day 9 Birthday Celebration

Happy Birthday Celebration Day 9! 

Don't forget to enter into the other Giveaways:

Today one of our favorite shirt companies is giving one of you an awesome workout shirt! And it is not only a great shirt, but each one of their shirts are also very inspiring!
Here's me, Little Sis in my Brighter Fire shirt after a very long run! 

Have you ever heard of Brighter Fire? Here's some cool stuff about their company! 

One of the best parts about this company is that 10% of ALL profits are given back to the Wounded Warrior Project.  We love companies that give back. What I love the most about them is the message they are trying to get across to all of us, which is:

"unleashing the inner 'fire' each person has inside."

I love this message so much because it is exactly what my desire is around my family and friends. The people that say that they can't run or can't do this or that... I am always saying.. YES!!! YES! you can! Everyone has that inner fire and I just wish everyone would realize that! It is so hard to realize that we do have the potential inside of us that we don't think we have...I love seeing people reach new goals and expectations for themselves! That is why when I see companies like Brighter Fire Apparel, I can't wait to work with them! 
"Brighter Fire is here to motivate, inspire, and drive people to new heights! We hope you 
will take our designs to heart and go above and beyond the norm!"

Here's a few of their awesome designs! Now ENTER to win you one !

"Impass clothing was started shortly after I graduated from college. I knew I wanted to make a career out of doing what I love which is creating apparel. Impass Clothing is meant to make the wearer feel great and look great. The clothes are playful-to embrace our inner youth, the kid inside of us that loves to adventure, that does not fear, that does not judge, and that is not insecure. The brand Impass was designed for those people that believe in being a kid forever, loving without fear and restraint, and chasing after there dreams with reckless abandonment."

I absolutely love her description of her business. Who doesn't want to be a kid forever? She has truly taken her passion of creating apparel and brought some items to the table that I had never thought of. I especially love who the sports bra is part of the shirt!Take a look at these few views of her Hustle and Flow Shirt that she will be giving one of you:

Day 5 Birthday Celebration!

Happy Birthday Celebration Day #5!
I am so excited about today's Birthday Bash Giveaway! Why you ask? Well we are TWO GIVEAWAYS today! And they are actually both things that I use in my own home.  
First off, let me introduce to you Nikki Dean, the creator of Classy Cords! 
The fun thing about Nikki is that she is from our home town, so we have known her for a while! It is such a special treat to have her doing a giveaway to all of our readers today.  
Along with that, I LOVE HER PRODUCT! Have you ever noticed how annoying or "not classy" it looks to have your lamp, TV, or scentsy cords hanging around? Well Classy Cords fixes all that! 
Take a look at these! 
Here's a few of her cord designs: 
So for the celebration today one of our readers will get to win their very own Classy Cord! 
The second GIVEAWAY we are doing for you today is another RooSport! 
Another wonderful product that we love, but on a totally different spectrum! We recently did a review on the RooSport, that you can read about here!
I have used the RooSport for working out, and also on occasions when I need my phone with me, but I also know that I need my hands free.  It is handy in so many ways.  
When working out, it has become one of my must have, essential running companions.  I not only put my phone in their for safety, but also for music, and the RooSport has two pockets, so I also put my energy sports beans in the smaller pocket on my longer runs.  
If you are looking for something to use while running, walking, hiking, or even riding your bike this is definitely a great product to use for that.  I love using mine! 
The greatest part about it is that since RooSport is celebrating our birthdays with us, one of our lucky readers will be able to win one of their very own!! 
Thanks so much for celebrating with us!

Day 3 Birthday Celebration

Day 3

We are so excited to be able to continue to bring you these awesome Giveaways. As we have said, we are OHHH, so thankful for these businesses that have so graciously chose to be part of our celebration. We hope you continue to be excited about this giveaway as we are... Be sure to SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!

Today we are so excited to tell you about Gina over at Peace Babi Boutique! She has some very beautiful and meaningful products. If you want to know more about Gina, I suggest you go HERE and read. Gina is a fellow Sweat Pink Ambassador and we are totally stoked to have her involved in this Celebration with us. We asked Gina to tell you a little bit about herself and her business so you could get to know her, and this is what she had to say:

My craving for creativity has always been a part of me. Growing up I was always known as the girl with the box of string. I would make jewelry anywhere and everywhere. The little entrepreneur in me even had a stand in front of my house where I would sell my work; I must say I did pretty well!
As the years passed my creative gene took a back seat to adulthood while I was distracted with school, college and then my career. I’ve now reached a point in my life where these things just aren’t enough and I’m craving more fulfillment. So, why not rewind back a few (or many) years and put some color back into my life. My first step was starting my Blog, Burning Babi Fat. This Blog gave me an outlet to inspire myself as well as others who may need some motivation or just some fun reading! My next step came on an extremely stressful day when I was completely overwhelmed (Yep! It was one of those days!). I ran to the Art Store (Yes, I know…Not your typical place to de-stress haha) and I picked up a bunch of supplies. Before I knew it I had a bunch of beautiful bracelets created! I was so excited and felt so good about it that I considered turning this into something more than just a hobby. Once I saw all of my friends take such an interest in them, I decided in that moment to share them with all of you!

Behind the name Peace Babi
After going back and forth with a million ideas, I finally decided to title my jewelry line,

Peace Babi
Peace: a state of mutual harmony between people or groups, especially in personal relations: Try to live in peace with your neighbors.
Calmness, hush, patience, peace, peace of mind, peacefulness, placidity, quiet, repose, rest, restraint, serenity, silence, stillness, stoicism, tranquility
Babi: Baby, kid stuff, silly, sissy, darling, heartbeat, honey, idol, love, lover, object of affection, one and only, prize, rave, sugar, sweetheart, tootsie, treasure, true love

Peace Babi, perfectly suits the type of style that I would like my jewelry to perceive! I am such a hippie at obsessed with that era that I wish I could have partaken in that generation’s festivities (not the kind you’re thinking!). Deep down we all crave tranquility and a peaceful mindset. Sometimes you just can’t take life too seriously or you’ll never survive!

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. - Albert Einstein

Sometimes we just need to be silly and tap back into our childhood! It doesn’t matter how old or young we is too short! I’m a huge fan of being random and silly, and yes I laugh at my own jokes!

I hope that the energy and heart that I put into each and every one of my pieces brings you a little sense of fun, peace and inspiration!

Check Her Out at These Places:

One of my favorite things about her is that she really promotes Breast Cancer Awareness with her bracelets. She has several that she has created just for this reason. I have actually been looking at getting one because they are so beautiful and support such a great cause. 15% of her profit goes to Breast Cancer Awareness. That is AWESOME!
Breast Cancer Awareness Bracelet

I will be getting some of these bows. Someone is going to be SO lucky to get these adorable bows that she has created for you!! Even if you don't have a baby girl, I am POSITIVE you know someone that would love them! These items are clearly hand made with love and I can't wait to see who wins them! We have asked Megan to share a little bit about herself with you guys too.. so enjoy:

Hello! My name is Megan, and I am a fifth grade teacher in northeastern Pennsylvania. I started my hair accessory shop on Etsy this summer, and plan on continuing it during my spare time. I have always enjoyed being crafty, and found something I really love doing! :)
