Beauty Swellness: Aveeno Giveaway!

IMG_20190320_160653

If you’ve been following me for awhile (or have seen my IG Stories of the beauty products I travel with), you know that I’m a longtime fan of Aveeno products (and I was a brand ambassador with Aveeno for a number of years).

So in the spirit of sharing great products with this season, I couldn’t not include one Aveeno giveaway! The prize is valued at $100 and I made sure to include a few of my personal faves and a few others I think you’ll enjoy trying out if you haven’t already.

The Aveeno prize package includes:

  • AVEENO® ABSOLUTELY AGELESS® Leave-On Mask.  This  light formula helps fight environmental factors and signs of aging. And leave-on works for me (anything to reduce steps in my beauty routine!).
  • AVEENO® DAILY MOISTURIZING Body Wash. I shower a lot (twice a day on days i have an event to attend and a workout) and this body wash has colloidal oatmeal and natural oils that leaves skin looking and feeling great.
  • AVEENO® DAILY MOISTURIZING Lotion. I use this daily in the summer on the evenings I shower in the evening. It’s not greasy plus it moisturizes for 24 hours.
  • AVEENO® Eczema Care Anti-Itch Relief Balm. A go-to in the winter or any day of the year when my skin is feeling especially dry. It provides more intense hydration than the Daily Moisturizing Lotion.
  • AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Make-up Removing Wipes (not pictured above). Out of all the Aveeno products I use, this is the one I use most often. Great for after a workout to wipe off sweat or to clean off makeup on nights I’m feeling really tired,  which is often when I’m traveling, or as a pre-cleanse before washing my face with a cleanser and rinsing, these wipes have moisture-rich soy extract and I like the product’s delicate fresh scent.
  • AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE™ Sunscreen Lotion SPF 45. Another Aveeno staple from my travel kit, as it’s under 100mL and slathers on nicely without feeling greasy.

The prize is valued at approximately $100. Here’s how to enter:

  1. Check out my Instagram post for this Aveeno giveaway and enter on Instagram (details are on the IG post).
  2. Get an additional entry by commenting on this blog post and sharing which of the products above you love (or want to try out) most.

This giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on Tuesday, March 26, 2019. It is open to Canadian residents, excluding Quebec. The winner will be chosen at random and announced on my Instagram Stories on Wednesday, March 27, 2019.  The prize is awarded as is. The winner will be asked to fill out a release form to claim their prize. I am operating this giveaway on my own and it is not associated with Instagram.

Enter away!

Healthy Swellness: Sodastream GIVEAWAY!

00100lPORTRAIT_00100_BURST20190301180019355_COVER

I go through ups and downs when it comes to hydrating well. I drink plenty of water when I run, but am not so great about hydrating any other time (even when I’m doing “well” that just means a couple of glasses of water). But what I have found to really help me is to drink carbonated water. And while I’ve had a nutritionist tell me to drink plain water is better, for me, drinking any water is better than none and so if it being bubbly is what gets me to drink water, then that’s what it is!

I have a Sodastream and love the convenience of it. It’s helped me drink soft drinks less often (I have them only as a treat when I’m out and stopped stocking pop at home years ago). If you recall, I partnered with Sodastream a couple of years ago.

Besides helping me drink more water, I love the cocktails you can make with it, too, like this Raspberry Rosé Punch!

And continuing my giveaway bonanza, I’m giving away one Sodastream Fizzi One Touch! It’s valued at $179.99 and I hope it helps one lucky winner hydrate better!

Fitness Swellness: Reebok Fast Flexweave

20180424-0S5A1655

Marathons are usually my go-to race distance, but what’s this runner doing this spring? Focusing on shorter distances, and I need all the help I can get to go fast.

Running full-out is not my preference. Even though the 42.2k of a marathon is grueling, part of the reason I enjoy them more is the fact that you have to go at a  slower pace, one you can complete that distance in. But with 5k or 10k, you have to go faster (OK, you don’t have to, but when you’re competitive with yourself like I am, you do!).

20180424-0S5A1767

Cue the Reebok Fast Flexweave. For my training this spring, I’ve been using this new running shoe. I want technology on my side if I’m aiming to be fast. Its specifically designed for agility and speed. Think quick-burst workouts and speed work…AKA my life right now (…what have I gotten myself into?! I kid, speed work is a necessary evil when you’re training for a marathon, too).

The Fast Flexweave features an upper made of Flexweave, which is an open, figure-8 weave that results in the upper being ultra lightweight. This helps my feet feel weightless and makes it all that much easier to lift my feet and keep on moving forward. Also, there are tailored zones within the Flexweave fabric for extra flexibility and breathability; I love this because running with feet that feel like they’re roasting inside your shoes that feel stiff is so uncomfortable and distracting.

20180424-0S5A1844

I prefer a fair bit of cushioning in my shoes, and while these are lighter, they do offer a comfortable amount of stability and durability through the midfoot; I think they strike just the right note in terms of delivering the stability and comfort of the type of sole I usually gravitate toward for a longer run, but in a more nimble and lightweight design for the shorter distance I’m focusing on. And that’s also likely thanks to the design incorporating pressure-mapping technology, so that the Fast Flexweave is flexible where you need it to be and stable where you need it. If only finding a partner to be just precisely flexible and stable when needed were as easy!

Stay tuned as to how my training goes, and I have it on good authority that you may be able to win yourself a pair of Reebok Fast Flexweave yourself! (Keep your eye on this post and my Instagram!)
