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!

Fitness Style Picks: Standout Workout Leggings & Sweats

Standout Workout Leggings and Sweats1 ($64) | 2 ($85) | 3 ($60) / 4 ($18) / 5 ($68) / 6 ($179) / 7 ($90) / 8 ($28) / 9 ($265) / 10 ($60) / 11 ($67)

I love fun, bright workout leggings. And I have a feeling some of you do, too, based on the insane amount of times my workouts get pinned to Pinterest when I’m wearing something funky on my legs.

I’m a continuous online window shopper, always bookmarking clothing items I like, and I thought I’d roundup some of the cool leggings and sweatpants I’ve found recently. I’ve included the links and prices above so you can see which one are realistically priced and which are just fun to look at (I would never spend $265 on a pair of impractical leggings, but damnit are they amazing).

I’m also loving that fitted sweatpants/track pants are now trendy. They even work with HEELS (see below for proof). Activewear is slowly becoming everyday wear, which is great for people like me who’s job’s dress code consists of sports bras and sneakers.

Which leggings are your favorites? Do you like the sweatpants trend? Have any other awesome brands or pairs to share? Let’s talk leggings—it’s Friday and that’s all my brain can handle. :)



My Fitness Style Picks: Without Walls

WIthout Walls Activewear


1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 / 16

Last time I did one of these posts with Juicy Couture Sport, most of you were like Um relax, JWoww. It was an understandable reaction haha. This time around, I picked some of my favorites from Without Walls, and can’t wait to hear what you guys think (even if you question my sanity again). It’s always fun exploring new activewear lines!

I was excited when I heard that Urban Outfitters was going to venture into the world of activewear, and when my friend passed along a link to the new line, Without Walls, I was immediately impressed. Fun patterns, bright colors, cool crops and cutouts—it has a surfer-bro-meets-hipster vibe that I’m loving! You’ve probably noticed by now that I’m a big fan of outrageous workout leggings and drapey tanks with low-cut sleeve holes, so Without Walls pretty much has my name written all over it.

Now is a professional athlete going to wear this line during training? No, probably not. I’d say it’s for more casual activities and low-impact workouts. I also found a bunch of stuff that I thought would be perfect for wearing while instructing on the megaformers.

In addition to the Without Walls collection (again, probably not the type of performance fitness gear you’d wear running a marathon or at the CrossFit games), they also carry other notable brands like Columbia and Patagonia. And while these other brands might be a little pricier, the Without Walls line is super affordable—always a bonus!

What do you guys think of the new line?

Also—I have no idea where I’d actually wear that ridiculous poncho, but how amazing is it??
