Fabletics

Have you tried Fabletics yet? I signed up in January and I've loved it since. It's kind of like a subscription service for workout clothes but you can skip as many months as you like without penalty.

I signed up for the VIP program because I earn reward points with every order and there's no obligation to make a monthly purchase. Every month I get outfits suggested for me based on my preferences (sport, colours, lengths, etc.) and I either make a purchase or opt out for the month. Easy peasy. Also? You don't have to buy an outfit they suggest. I've purchased outfits outside my referral range (because I wanted to try a different type of bottom) and I've purchased single items without committing to a full outfit. The program is extremely flexible.

I was concerned that the quality of the product would be low but I was happily mistaken. The leggings and bras are thick enough to provide ample coverage. The colours are bright and hold up to intense washing (I am ruthless with my workout gear. If I sweat in it, I'm washing it on the heavy setting.)

I've found a few annoying sizing discrepancies but nothing so serious as to warrant a return . For example, a pair of shorts I ordered one month are slightly smaller than the exact cut I ordered a different month. They're a bit tighter but not unwearable. It's possible I'm just being too picky (never!).

You can try Fabletics here (referral link! I get credits to use for future purchases if you complete a purchase using this link!) and if you sign up for the VIP program not only do you earn reward points you can use for future purchases, you can get your first outfit for only $25. My first outfit was a bra, tank, and capri leggings. For $25! And if you don't like the service, you can cancel immediately.

My favourites are: the Moro Short (I find this runs small so order up a size), the Forward Tee II (I have this in three colours and I wear it all the damn time. For working out, to work, around the house. I super heart-eyed smiley face love this shirt), and the Juneau Bra.

Do you use Fabletics? Do you love them as much as I do?

Grey Cup Festival (Giveaway!)

The Grey Cup is coming to Vancouver and though I'm admittedly not a football enthusiast, I am a fan of family-friendly events (especially family-friendly events featuring pancakes!)

The 102nd Grey Cup Festival kicks off on November 26th and culminates with the big game on November 30th

The festival is packed with family-oriented events, tasty food, and tons of live music. The Nissan Family Zone features face painting, the Canadian Forces obstacle course, the CN Safety Zone, and more. If you want to enjoy the great outdoors, the Telus Street Festival will have daily food trucks (count me in!), interactive games, and giveaways. The Save-On-Foods Grey Cup Festival Parade will wind its way through the streets of Vancouver on Saturday, November 29th and promises to have floats, a marching band, cheerleaders, alumni, and the coveted Grey Cup. 

This is only a taste of what the Grey Cup Festival has to offer leading up to the big game, and the best part is there's something for everyone (well, and the whole being free part. That's good too.) You don't have to love football to have fun at the Grey Cup festival. Grady and I will be there bopping along to the fantastic live music and hunting down bags of warm mini doughnuts because we have our priorities straight. 

Vancouver locals, you want to win this Grey Cup Contest Prize Pack (it's $950 worth of awesome Grey Cup stuff and the chance for your child to ride in a VIP vehicle as part of the Save-On-Foods Grey Cup Festival Parade!)
