Lulu Goods + Giveaway

Good evening, friends! :)

I hope you all have had a very nice weekend!

A lot of exciting things happened this weekend in our neck of the woods.

One thing I thought you all might be particularly interested in was something I did sort of on a whim this afternoon...


And yes, that does need to be in all caps.

It's a shopaholic workout lover's dream.

I had seen Chelsey tweet a little about the sale on Friday, but I didn't think about going because I figured it was probably far away and something I didn't want to put my mom through (the lines were supposed to be horrendous).

Then, last night, my friend Ashley mentioned how close the sale was to our place (literally 10 minutes away!), and my ears perked up a little.

After my mom headed back home this afternoon, I was getting the itch to go check out the goodies.

I figured maybe since I would be going at the tail end of the sale (it closes at 9PM tonight), I might be able to get in and get out unharmed.

Let me just say, I am SO GLAD I decided to go.

Not only did I not have to wait in ANY lines, I got some pretty sweet deals, and even a little something to share with one of YOU! :)

Here's what I found...

Lululemon Power Y Tank 

original price - $52
warehouse sale price - $19

When I got to the sale, I could not find a single tank in my size, let alone one I liked.  I nabbed this one out of the "go back" bin by the fitting rooms and clung to it for dear life as I tried on my other items.  

Lululemon Run Shorts

warehouse price - $19

I actually can't find this exact pair of shorts online anywhere, but they look and feel very similar to the Turbo Run Shorts, which go for $54 at the store. 

And last, but certainly not least...

Lululemon Special Edition Dip Dye Scuba Hoodie 

original price - $148
warehouse price - $29 (buy one get one free)

Yes, you read that right.  

By the time I got to the warehouse sale, they were selling these scuba hoodies for 29 bucks a piece, and they were BUY ONE GET ONE FREE!! 

Unfortunately for me, I couldn't find the hoodie in a different color and in my size, but fortunately for YOU, I decided to pick up an extra black & white one for a fun little GIVEAWAY! 

Here are the deets...

This is a SIZE 6, brand new with tags, Lululemon Special Edition Scuba hoodie.  

I wear a size small or a 4 to 6 in women's clothing, and this is how the hoodie fits me: 

It's not super tight, so it's comfortable, but it's still cute fitting!

There is a removable (faux) fur piece (see below in the pink version), which I promptly removed from mine, but I'd be happy to leave on the prize winning piece.

My favorite part...

The message embroidered inside the edge of the hood :)

Just too good not to share the *love*

  1. You have got to be kidding me! You should have told me you were going I would have wired you money :). Well I of course love your blog...I love the recipes and I'm always looking for more. Maybe even some baking? You'll need to register for a kitchen aid mixer - your life will never be the same. I have an amazing cookie recipe ...or 5 ...that I want to make (but I'm pretty sure they are not healthy!)

    1. I just registered for the mixer this weekend! So many choices as far as colors and accessories go :) I definitely need to do some more baking! Maybe I can come up with a healthy-ish oatmeal cookie recipe!

  2. Love the blog! I'm a sucker for healthy (and vegan?) recipes plus who doesn't love a good wedding update?! Even those of us who are married still love to see someone else's excitement! Keep up the good work!!


  3. A: Really jealous that you even have a Lululemon warehouse!...Chicago is so much better than STL! B: For obvious reasons, I am obsessed with BEBT! I love everything you talk about, esp your recipes! I actually am making your crock pot BBQ pork today! Got it all prepped this am! I also love your wedding updates! :)

    1. You are a crock pot machine these days! :) Makin me proud! Love ya!

  4. I have been making your hash brown casserole a lot lately so I would love more recipes! and of course I love the wedding updates.

    1. YUMMM. I could go for some of that right now haha. More recipes + wedding updates coming your way! xoxo

  5. I really like reading your blog, especially the workout ideas. Some of the treadmill workouts have been great!! So I would love more workouts and recipes. I can't believe you got those great deals at LuLu! We just got one here in Indy less than a year ago, and I am obsessed. (coincidence I wear either a size 4 or 6 there ; ))

    1. Thanks Katelyn! I'm so glad you are liking the workouts! I couldn't believe the Lulu deals either! It really is the best for workout clothes - pricey but I feel like the stuff lasts forever and it is all just too cute! :)

  6. I hear all the wedding updates anyway sooo I'd have to say fashion, workouts and playlists because I'm a poor college girl and you already do my home cooking for me :) hahaha
    I guess meal re cap's could be fun. I could be a guest star!
    Love you!

  7. I have just recently discovered your blog and I am so glad that I did. I love how down-to-earth you are and how it shines through the way you write on your blog. I always love reading about different workouts that I can try for a little inspiration to switch up my routine. Also, I enjoy reading new recipes.

  8. Thank you, Stacey - that is so sweet! Glad you found the blog and are enjoying it!! :)
