I feel like this week has been a mini Christmas with all the goodies that have shown up at my house. I’ve recently signed up with a few blogger ambassador programs and cannot believe the generosity of the companies and the awesome products they have sent. You guys will likely hear about a lot of these products in the upcoming weeks but today I just wanted to send a special shout out to Lululemon and their awesome social media team.
As some of you know, I’m a pretty avid Twitter user (say hi!) and often use the platform to get ideas and recommendations on products. I randomly tweeted out to the twitter-sphere asking for recommendations on a new yoga mat since I’ve been looking to upgrade now that my practice has become more serious. Several minutes later I receive this response from Lululemon:
Definitely intrigued, I quickly respond to be asked for my size, address and being told I was receiving a surprise! Not even 24 hours later, these beauties showed up on my doorstep:
|Love the colors!|
|Sticky & thick….love it so far!|
LOVE! This was the exact mat I had been looking at as it’s suppose to be a great option for hot yoga since it’s extra sticky and absorbs sweat (I’m laying in a puddle after being in class 30 minutes). I can’t wait to give this a try next week at class and have already had a few short practice sessions on my own at home. I’ll definitely let you know what I think after a few classes. The shirt is super comfy too. Loose, breathable and will be fabulous for yoga or long runs this hot summer.
I just thought it was a pretty amazing response from what seems to be a pretty cool company and I’m definitely feeling pretty lucky and grateful. They’ve definitely caught my attention as a consumer and I’ll remember them more in the future for athletic purchases.

The giving spirit caught after this too. I had a large bag of clothes that I had been meaning to sell (through online facebook re-sell groups), but decided I’d give them away instead since I’ve received some great goodies lately. Feels good to clean house and help some others out as well.
This is in no way sponsored…just my personal experience and wanting to share what I consider an awesome surprise.
