[2013] 018/365: Ellie Deserves A Second Chance

After the whole PV.Body debacle, many people decided not to give Ellie a chance.

I was so close to doing the same because what they did was wrong … but I gave them a second chance. Everyone deserves a second chance. Plus, I’m not picky in what I wear to workout … as long as it covers up the majority of my body parts AND it doesn’t chafe … I’m good.

I’ve worn these to workout in three times since I’ve gotten them in case you were wondering.

This is literally what I picked from Ellie. I’m lazy and this just looks good. Given … it looks nothing like this when I wear it. More like a fat burrito with all the fixin’s wanting to get out.

Tempt Me Racerback | $39.95

I love this racerback … and I rarely say that to tops because they always get all up in my business. That’s what happens when you have a big bust. But this fits perfectly. Much more comfortable then that name brand they sent over when they were still PV.Body. I obviously had to wear a sports bra underneath, but that’s normal. Oh and its super absorbent and dries SUPER SUPER fast.

The only bad thing I have to say though is the panels in the front and the middle of the back are holes. I wished it was a double layer so that it covered that up. Love the design, hate the holes.

Love Struck Legging | $69.95

I love the thickness of them … but yet they are thin. And it keeps me super warm on these last few days of coldness. The legging part is much more comfortable to me then the other name brand ones I got from them when they were PV.Body.

The only complaint I have about them is the waistband. The one they sent when they were PV.Body was way better. I wished it was a little wider so that it uh … covers up my fat. I would say the waistband does move around a little when I do a more vigorous activity. But for lifting and whatnot … it works perfectly.

***************

I understand Ellie is a new line so they’re sticking with usual colors like black, grey, blue, and pink … but it’d be nice if they branched out a little. Can’t wait when that does happen!

And don’t be discouraged by my negative comments. I love both the pieces for different reasons. But in all good things, there are bad. Everyone likes things differently.

With that being said, if you click on anything on this post that says Ellie, you get 20% off. Sweet huh? Get a move on why don’t yah.

Turkey Burger Basket [on an egg bun with grilled onions and mushrooms, fries & and drink] | around $11

You get to snazz up your burger however you like with a few bucks.

My fries are humongous because they actually forgot to put it on my plate. Else, it would be right next to my burger and rest assured, way less. To die for. I’ve never tried thin fries that I adore, and these were just perfect. Just the right amount of crispy on the outside and seasoned to perfection.

As for the burger … juicy. Yum. The onions and mushrooms I got added in there definitely made it that much better. I can’t say much for the lettuce. It tasted old and … disgusting so I kind of left it where it laid.

I got my drink of sweet tea [not pictured]. It didn’t taste good at all. Maybe I went on a bad day but the tea was no where near … sweet. It felt very watered down.

Homemade Chili [cup] | $3.59

I don’t know why I always feel the need to order chili if I can but I did!

I should of said no to the cheese and not to be greedy with the onions. They sure aren’t greedy with the meat though. You will find chunks of ground meat in there. It was really good and I just loved dunking my fries in there.

I really did love this place and I would definitely come back. I’m thinking of bringing the family here one day.

Hey sissy, if you read this … you can come here! They have veggie burgers!

Has anyone checked out PV.Body 30 Day Challenge for today?

Day 3 and it’s a recipe for Protein Pancakes. I didn’t make them but if you did, let me know how they turned out!

It’s finally the weekend! Hope you all have a great one!

Realizations

Oh fudge.

Bad Realizations:

  • No dress for wedding that’s at the end of THIS month! Where do people buy nice dresses?! Bleugh!
  • Business trip to New Orleans is NEXT weekend! And I found out we all have to present something. Crud.
  • I touch my face and hair TOO much. That means bad skin and oily hair! Eek! Already not doing well for that resolution.
  • My wisdom teeth has got to GO. It’s pushing on the side of my other teeth since it’s growing incorrectly. Boo.

On the upside:

  • I LOVE bows and have been searching for a pretty bow ring but haven’t found one that I like.
  • I want to FOCUS more on my art and my music … my hobbies.
  • I want to start VLOGGING but I have nothing to talk about but it seems cool to do.

Who’s done Day 2 of the PV.Body 30 Day Challenge?!

I about died. That’s what happens when you’ve been out too long. Whoopsies.

pva

It’s a 30 Minute Full Body Workout. I only did 1x each circuit. Hopefully that still counts. And hey, at least I got off my butt and did something right?

It’s a plus that she’s wearing the same exact clothes I got from PV.Body. Yay!

Tomorrow’s my day off … but I just might go in for a few hours so I can you know … slack off another day. 😉

PV.Body Takes Over The Blogosphere By Storm

I’m actually using WordPress to write this post. Ah … haven’t done that since I first blogged! Sorry if the pictures are alkjer! I don’t know how to fix it through this.

Anyway, we’re here to talk about some fitness clothing. I will do my Christmas weekend in the next post or something.

I’m not going to lie … I’m cheap. I work out in my tees and basketball shorts and every time I see some cool fitness clothing when I’m shopping, I sadly put it down. I don’t have the dough for that kind of stuff.

PVbody

In “walks” in PV.Body. (Click on the link to check it out!) I’m sure everyone’s heard of them by now. They’re taking over the blogosphere! So what exactly is PV.Body?

whatpv

$50 if you don’t use my code!!

PV.Body contacted me to become an ambassador and I jumped at the chance. I’ve never been an ambassador so I feel pretty cool. I did get a free package  just so I can see what it’s all about. Also so that I’m not just writing gibberish. These are my opinions though sooo keep that in mind.

20121226_155852

PV.Body sent me my clothes in just a few weeks! Let’s keep in mind it’s Christmas month aka busy mail month. So to me, it was fast. They put it in a sparkly pink bag and wrapped each clothing in pink tissue paper. They are careful with their product!

20121226_160109

I got a NUX Infinity Adjustable T-Back in Plumeria and an American Apparel Performance Sportswear in Black.

The top alone is $45 … I’m not sure how much the bottoms cost but it is from American Apparel …

How did it feel on? Amazing. Everything felt smooth and for once I felt like a runner. You can choose what type of activity you do and where and they customize to that.

I would show you it on my body .. but my body isn’t that great so I don’t want anyone to throw up. 😉

The only thing I didn’t like about it was that I couldn’t get a size larger for my chest area so that everything fit. It fits but not loose enough where I felt comfortable to step outside in. Big chested girls and all. They only have Small, Medium, and Large. Keep that in mind my friends.

Jump on this PV.Body train. All the cool kids are doing it!

Make sure to click my link to get it for $39! Else, you’ll have to pay the $50 fee. Eeep.

Also you don’t have to stay on it. Try it the first month and if you don’t like it, you can cancel it!

Hope you’re all having a great break! 🙂
