{Friday Favourites} Cozy winter running gear, natural make-up & more

Life In Leggings

Happy Friday and almost American Thanksgiving, friends! How was your week?

Mine was pretty great, because I found out I get to attend IDEA World Fitness BlogFest for FREE! You have NO idea how excited I am to meet some of my fellow Sweat Pink Ambassadors and IDEA Inspired Bloggers in person, hang out for the weekend in LA, network, earn some CEUs for my strength coach certification and learn all about how to create a better blog/coaching business. The conference is in July, so I’ve got lots of time to save up for my plane ticket. Fellow SPAs: Who wants to share a room???

Thank you all for sharing my first attempt at a “podcast” this week and my post yesterday about why I’m not spending money on small gifts and holiday treats this year. I’m sure I’ll be doing some holiday baking because I love to do it, but diverting some of the funds I would have spent on such things to charity causes instead.

I haven’t done a favourites post in awhile, so I’m linking up with Heather of Life in Leggings and Nicole of Fitful Focus to share are some of the things I’m loving lately from my Instagram feed!

Oiselle’s Lux Running gloves – A winter running gear must-have. They actually keep my hands toasty on runs AND they’re iPhone friendly

  Oiselle’s Gilman Vest – An added layer of warmth and visibility on my chilly 5 a.m. runs

My banana matcha coconut almond green smoothie made with Vega One

Testing myriad sports bras for an upcoming IMPACT Magazine article – Running, lifting and sweating my way with three other testers through 16+ bras so far…

My Escents aromatherapy diffuser – Lavender, cedarwood and arctic are my go-tos right now

All the sales 100% Pure keeps having so I can stock up!
