Endure Shop {Giveaway}–CLOSED

I’ve mentioned before that I recently ran my first half-marathon. It was long and it was grueling, but I’m so proud to say that I’ve run 13.1 miles!

If you’re a runner (or a human being, really), you know the thrill of accomplishing something hard that you never thought you’d be able to do and then wanting to brag about it. Well, the folks at Endure get that, and they’ve created a whole line of jewelry and apparel to show off your accomplishments!

Endure’s creator, Sunny Arada, is a former NCAA Cross Country and Track and Field Athlete. She has combined her love of jewelry and her passion for running to create a beautiful line of fun and inspiring products. I love the word “endure” and all that it means when running a race, and also just running the race of life. She sells necklaces, rings, beads, earrings and apparel for runners of every kind. Her designs all come in tarnish-resistant sterling silver, but can be ordered in 14K white or yellow gold, and  some styles even come with diamonds. All of her fashions are beautiful and make me proud to be a runner and remind me to endure through  the hard stuff!

jewelry

Besides beautiful jewelry, Endure has a great line of running apparel. I love the “Run” tee, the “I roll with Bob” onesie (hilarious, right?) and the “13.1” (in Roman numerals) long sleeve tee. And the “Endure” headband. And the Heart compression socks…Okay, I pretty much love the entire apparel collection 🙂

apparel

 But what I really love is the Live Love Run Endure Hoodie I was sent to review. Talk about an awesome hoodie! First of all, it’s a zip up hoodie, which I love because you can get it on without messing up your hair. It’s super soft on the inside and slightly stretchy, making it very fitted. If you like your hoodies loose and baggy then definitely order a size larger than you normally would, because this baby is snug–in a good way. The snugness makes it very warm; I have loved lounging around in it at night and staying nice and cozy. I haven’t taken it out on a run yet because it’s just so nice that I don’t want to get it all gross and sweaty, but I know it would keep me heated and when I got too hot I could easily un-zip it and would be just the right temperature. But enough about the fit–let’s talk about the design! Look how cute this thing is!!!

It has a fun shoelace design (hand drawn by the designer) on the front which I love–subtle but such a nice touch! Then the back is the best part: “Live Love Run Endure.” What words of wisdom! I mean, seriously, this doesn’t just appeal to runners but to people everywhere as a reminder to endure through life! And the sparkly gold on the word “Run?” Get out of here. I LOVE it! It’s just as sparkly and amazing in person as it looks in the picture.

This awesome hoodie is $54, and I think it’s worth the money. The “13.1,” “26.2” and “Run” long sleeve tees are $36 and the tanks are currently on sale for only $16! This is good quality apparel and I know you or the runner in your life would LOVE a shirt or piece of jewelry to commemorate and celebrate the huge accomplishments they’ve made in their lives. And lucky for you, Endure is offering you a chance to win $36 toward any apparel purchase from the shop!

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not incredibly crafty with much of anything (sewing, scrapbooking, cake pops, etc.), but I’d like to think that my lack of talent in this area just means that I appreciate others’ skills in these areas that much more!  A friend of mine said that she looks through Pinterest and pins pictures/websites with the intention of recreating them herself — that thought simply never crosses my mind!  Plus, when I find a shop like CoziBear Boutique on Etsy with such reasonable prices and high-quality items, I don’t feel the need to recreate anything at all!

main

CoziBear Boutique gives us the chance to “Wear something Cozi from CoziBear Boutique” and at first, I wondered if I really wanted something cozy during the summer months or if this shop was more seasonal for colder temperatures.  Not the case at all!  I was amazed to find how the shop owner was able to add cozy elements to lots of summer items to make them unique.  Here are some of my favorite pieces:

socks

Women’s Lace Peek-A-Boo Socks — I honestly didn’t even know that a product like this existed until Camille brought them to my attention a few months ago, but I love the little pop of femininity that these peek-a-boo socks can add to otherwise common flats and heels.

mint hi-low

Women’s Solid Hi-Low Skirt — I’m really loving this mint color (along with coral!) this summer, and the Hi-Low Skirt is a great way to have a piece that will transition from summer to fall in a stylish way.

girls

Girls Open Knit Leg Warmers — How adorable are these??  And, really, I think that these leg warmers are so practical on little girls so as to extend the use of cute summer skirts and dresses into fall and even winter.

top

Women’s Lace Shoulder Dolman Top — This was one of my favorite pieces that showcases the “Cozi” side of “CoziBear Boutique” in a summer outfit!  The top is flowy and lightweight, and the lace turns this “shirt” into a fun and stylish top that can be dressed up or down.

leg

Women’s Slouchy Button Down Leg Warmers — These leg warmers immediately caught my eye, and I love the potential and versatility of these cute wardrobe additions!!  Never would I have considered wearing leg warmers with heels, but the lace dresses them up and makes this look work well.  I received these leg warmers for review, and I LOVE them — while it’s still a little too warm to wear them now, I can easily see myself wearing them with heels in the next few weeks and then again during the winter months on the outside of my jeans but inside of boots with that fun burst of lace.
