Hey Babe!

Is this really the last post before 2018?!

Holy Smokes did this year fly by but I sure made some great memories. Each year I love to look back and reflect on my current year and set new goals for the upcoming one. This year I’ve decided not to be so hard on myself with the goals but I do have a few resolutions in mind. This year for me will be a lot of firsts and new things. Steven and I will be getting married in the fall and we are going to buy a house so this will be the year of saving for us. I also want to focus more on my health and what I am putting into my body. Each year I take the time to breakdown my fitness goals but for 2018 I really just want to focus on the big picture of food and workouts. What I am doing, how I am pairing each day, etc. You know totally normal stuff…


Anyways, since this year is going to be about saving money and fitness, what better way to kick off 2018 than with some stylish new gear right?! I am so honored to have been selected to receive Finish Line’s new women’s athleisure line, Activ8! This was a big moment for me as I was one of FIVE influencers selected to receive this bonus box from Rakuten. Guys, it was seriously so cool. They let me pick three different pieces from the new line and I am so excited to share them with you!

Before you go,
comment below and tell me what your New Years goals or resolutions
are or if you are just skipping them for 2018.

Sweat in Style with Finish Line Activ8:

Guys, this is still a dream to me that I was selected for this exclusive bonus box. Seriously, one of five?! Like what! The fact that I am a fitness junkie and this gear is so gorgeous… I just can’t express how happy I am to get to try out their new line so thank you Finish Line and Rakuten!

The Gear:

Finish Line Activ8 Women’s High Neck Graffiti Mesh Bra:
I figured we would start at the top and work our way down to the pants right? This bra is made with ‘motion-enhancing’ performance while still giving a ‘runway-worthy’ design. I agree with their ‘motion-enhancing’ design since it is very supportive and yes the design is very stylish. I’ve always been a huge fan of dark green and black combos [ask my mom I realllllly wanted a prom dress in dark green with black lace – didn’t happen but ya know]. Anyways, the mesh fabric makes this breathable and I love the high neck line. This is $20 USD.

Finish Line Activ8 Women’s Leather Metro Terry Scoop Neck Shirt:
Who doesn’t love a little trendy leather on their workout gear am I right? This shirt is so comfortable and warm. I have been favoring this shirt in the gym since I received it. The neck area has a breathable strip and the leather is super light. It is 57% cotton, 38% polyester and 5% spandex so it has a little give. I also like wearing this shirt on-the-go for errands because it is so stylish and comfortable. This is $35 USD.

Finish Line Activ8 Women’s Moto Blocked Legging:
Normally the pants would be my favorite piece of workout gear but honestly I’m in love with all three of these pieces. Aside from the fact I’m obsessed with the color, I love that they incorporated different textures into the pant. They are high-waisted which I am also a fan of and they give a sleek, urban look without damaging your wallet. I would say these are a medium weight material in that they aren’t super lightweight or too thick so I think that is also a positive. This is $30 USD.

Let’s Compare:

You know I like to compare so let’s have at it [#budgetfriendly]. I think this line’s style and fabric quality is right up there with the best of the best. I was interested to see how the pricing would stack up to the current popular brands.

  • Activ8  Bra = $20 USD //
    • The cheapest Lululemon [non-sale] bra I could find was $39! Their bra’s range from #39-$98. $98?! Does it work out for you too?!
    • Sweaty Betty bra’s range from $50-$75!
  • Activ8 Top = $35 USD //
    • Lululemon Long Sleeve’s range from $68 and up. I even saw one for $128 and almost fainted…
    • Sweaty Betty’s long sleeves range from $105 and up.
  • Activ8 Pant = $30 USD //
    • Lululemon pant’s range from $98 and up.
    • Sweaty Betty’s pant’s range from $85 and up.

Well the truth is in the numbers! I would go for Finish Line’s Activ8 athleisure line over these other overpriced brands. Especially since 2018 is the year of saving for me!

Well that is all for now. I hope you all enjoyed this post and that it was helpful. Before you go, comment below and tell me if you are doing NYE resolutions and goals or if you are skipping it. Also, what is your favorite piece from this post? I want to know so comment below!
