Hello Beautiful People!
I am finally feeling back into the swing of things since returning from California last week. Sometimes it takes a week, get over it.
While I would LOVE to share all the wonderful things I experienced, there’s a lot to cover over the conference itself so I’m sticking to the basics. Give it a read and PLEASE click on the sponsor links within the post so you can check out some of the super cool things I got to check out Let’s hit the highlights, shall we?
I MADE IT!
I have the picture to prove it. Ideaworld #blogfest started Thursday morning and I took my seat in the back. Thursday and Friday were probably the MOST fun days (that’s a WHOLE other blog post people), but my favorite parts were actually the brands. You see, during Tweet breaks (don’t fight it, it’s totally a thing) we were introduced to the brands who were sponsoring Ideaworld and making everything possible for our betterment and education….and they were giving us plenty of free swag. Word to the wise: you want my life, be willing to work as hard as I do.
REEBOK: King of swag
Here’s the funny thing….I’ve never really been a Reebok girl. I think I always associated them with the old-school aerobics instructors in tights and high tops….eeeewwwww. Reebok has totally redeemed themselves though! they’ve successfully been through an awesome rebranding (complete with new logo) and they were a fierce presence at the conference. I scored a bag, tank, water bottle and towel the very first day! That night, I got me some shoes
I’ve already been asked about the shoes since being home and NOBODY believes they’re Reebok, BUT they are…Reebok One Cushion to be exact. Go get you some…you will not be disappointed.
UNDER ARMOUR: Still the coolest
I am a geek to no end, and I’m OK with that. Under Armour’s own Shauna Harrison @shauna_Harrison was there to talk about the newly launched #IWILLWHATIWANT campaign, and you’ll be getting more info on that very soon. BUT first, check out our flex off:
Yeah, that happened….
OK, so UA also gave bloggers a brand spankin new UA39 (the BEST of the best in heart rate monitoring and other super techy stuff). I’ve been keeping track of all of my workouts and performance outputs during each one. As you know, I vary workouts since I have exercise ADD and it’s been awesome to track on this sweet little device.
That was a 450 calorie leg day
LORNA JANE: The SWEETEST smile at Ideaworld
If you have yet to meet Lorna Jane Clarkson and her FABULOUS clothes, you really must get out of Academy more. I was gifted with a super awesome tank top AND the ability to hear Lorna Jane speak on how her boutique clothing line came to be and what the philosophy of her company is. I was inspired to say the least and even picked myself up some more goodies at the Lorna Jane booth I fully encourage you to check out movenourishbelieve.com for blog posts, health tips, workouts and more on fun healthy living.
Are you tired of pics of my swag yet? OK, I’ll stop
I try to keep the posts short enough for my attention span, but I do need to show some love to some of the other sponsors. I don’t get a dime for you to click on these! I’m just trying to share what I experienced with you So check the links below for people who are all too willing to help you achieve the fit life.

Before I sign off, I would love to point you in the direction of some gifted bloggers who made an impact on me last week. I don’t consider myself a true blogger, more like a fitness pro who has a blog. These guys are at the top of the blogging game, so enjoy!
