One of the brands I was introduced to in my Rakuten Affiliate Network Bonus Box was Sweaty Betty. I absolutely love their Avesha Yoga Tank so I was thrilled when they asked me to join their Be BRAve In Your Bra campaign and talk about how I work out in their new sports bras. In addition to their high-quality workout clothes, I love the vision behind Sweaty Betty- their whole idea is to inspire women to be healthy and happy by exercising and leading active lives. You can definitely tell the whole Sweaty Betty team is passionate about what they do and I love how they also talk about moderation- you can live a healthy lifestyle and still eat dessert every now and then! I also like how straightforward they are about their clothes. Yes, every piece is designed to perform well no matter what your exercise of choice is but it’s also designed to be cute and make you look good! It’s refreshing to see a company be so honest about what they do and I have to admit I’m happy they design their clothes with those thoughts in mind, for me half the fun of exercising (ok maybe 80% of the fun) is wearing cute workout clothes! I received two different sports bras to try out for the campaign: the Resistance Workout Bra in Verde and the Upbeat Padded Workout Bra in Black. I tried out both during my normal workout routine.
One of the things I love about being a blogger is discovering and connecting with different brands. Even in this day and age when internet shopping is so prevalent and there are forums dedicated to the latest and greatest beauty and fashion products, it can still be hard to learn about new companies. I’m part of Rakuten Affiliate Network and they’ve recently started a program where they send out a RAN Bonus Box each quarter to introduce their bloggers to new brands and begin partnerships. It’s a really fun program and I was fortunate enough to receive their Q1 RAN Bonus Box which featured products from six different brands, most of which were new to me.
