First order of business this morning is to announce my new Ambassadorship with City Fit Girls!
"City Fit Girls is a network of women who inspire, uplift, encourage and motivate others to live healthy lifestyles at home, school, workplace or social settings." Yes, yes, yes. All about that. I'm excited to work with them and connect with others to spread the word that fitness is FUN!
Alright, also on the agenda today is a review of StrideBox! I'm sure many of you have heard of StrideBox before, but for those who have not, it's a monthly subscription box targeted to runners.
Another advantage of my sister currently being pregnant is that she is passing down her monthly StrideBoxes to me lately, which were a gift from her husband, so I should be thanking my brother-in-law here too. So, not only do I get another nephew in a few months (!), but I've been getting all her great running stuff lately too! Thanks Laura :)
So far, I've received 4 boxes from her and they are full of all kinds of goodies. Each box comes with about 8 samples and/or full size products, plus coupons and a sheet that provides information on each product in the box. About 2/3 of each box was filled with food products (most of which were full size!), but they've also contained other interesting little tidbits like lip balm, blinking shoe lights, a reflective arm band and iPhone compatible gloves.
What I love about these boxes is they allow you the opportunity to try out new products before committing to purchasing a whole box/case of something, and to discover new running accessories you may not otherwise be exposed to. (I've been wanting to try Picky Bars forever and they were in one of the boxes - Score!)
I've only ever subscribed to one monthly box service before and that was years ago. I did Birchbox for awhile, which is a box of beauty samples. It was only $10/month (this is how I justified it!) but I honestly rarely used any of the products! I'm just not a beauty junkie, I rarely wear makeup, and I use very few products on a daily basis (think hair gel and Suave lotion). Plus the samples in Birchbox were tiny. Like I mentioned above, most of the products in StrideBox were full size bars/gels/food.
I want to thank my sister again for sponsoring this post!
And with that, I'm off to see the wizard.
Have a great weekend everyone :)
