SNAP-2-LIVE: Cool Belt, Even Cooler Mission

Snap-2-Live (seat)belt outfitIt’s been forever since I’ve posted an outfit that doesn’t involve yoga pants and a sports bra. And I couldn’t think of a better occasion to don real clothing on the blog than to introduce you all to SNAP-2-LIVE belts.

Car crashes are the number one cause of death among children in the world, and nearly all can be prevented by wearing seat belts, not texting while driving, and not drinking and driving. Growing up, it was all too frequent that the Vineyard community would have to say goodbye to a loved high school student due to a car accident, and I know it’s a tragedy that has probably touched many of your lives as well.

In an effort to generate road safety awareness and provide safe communities for the less fortunate, SNAP-2-LIVE has joined the United Nations’ “Decade of Action for Road Safety” initiative, and donates 70% of profits to the Road Safety Fund.

It’s an important cause, and it just happens to be an added bonus that the belt is beyond cool. It has an airplane seatbelt clasp, comes in all different colors, and adjusts to fit all sizes. I love mine!

When you buy a belt, it comes in a box with a pledge on it. You rock your new fashion statement, sign the pledge, and share your pics on social media. Not only is that 70% portion of your sale donated to the Road Safety Fund, but you’re helping to spread awareness. Checking my phone while driving is the one I really need to stop. I only do it in bad traffic or at stoplights, but it’s still a fender bender waiting to happen. No email/text/Facebook notification is that important!

Tiger on the Loose in TJMaxx

Tiger sweater casual outfitI found this sweater at TJMaxx last month. I was there strictly on a kitchenware mission, but when I spotted it across the room I was immediately like Yup. You bet your ass I’ll spend $10.99 on a sweater with a tiger’s face on it, TJMaxx.

In these pics, I dressed it down to run some errands—but, considering pajama pants and Uggs are the fashion combo of choice here, this is technically formal attire in Southie.

What’s been your best find at TJMaxx? I saw a pair of Brian Atwood heels there for $50 once (!!)… but not my size. :(

There’s a lot I’m looking forward to in 2014, but when it comes to a New Year’s fitness resolution, mine is to continue turning this passion into a career. I was excited to find out the contest shoe was the Asics GEL-Craze TR, because in keeping with this resolution, I’m pretty much wearing sneakers every day of the week—developing and shooting workouts for the blog, trekking across town to SPX and spinning classes, and just continuing to live an active life.

I styled my Asics shoes with some leggings and a hoodie, my favorite cross-body backpack, a hat and some fun headphones. A casual, comfy look that I’d wear while heading over to my favorite fitness studios, maybe running errands along the way.
