Five Friday Favorite Packages (Sorry We Missed You!) and Fiesta 5K

Before I get to my Five Friday Favorites packages edition I want to let you know that I'm excited to be running a 5K this Saturday with KIND Snacks who, besides making delicious bars and granola, are super involved in local communities. 'Tis the season for spring racing! The Fiesta 5K is a local race that benefits the Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins, the "only international scientific operation dedicated solely to curing ALS" or Lou Gehrig's disease. 
Find out more about the Packard Center here!


I'm really excited for the chance to work with the KIND team and run a race that supports such an amazing cause! If you're around Baltimore Saturday and want to run I know they have race day registration. More information can be found here!



So I've gotten lots of packages lately so I thought I'd share my favorites! Some are from months ago, but that just means they have gotten some use! 

Five Friday Favorite Packages



1. Favorite snack package: Krave Jerky

I won some Krave Jerky from a Sox Box giveaway. I have always turned my nose up at beef jerky,honestly thinking it was pretty gross. However, I LOVE this jerky as a snack-the sweet chipotle beef jerky was my favorite flavor. It was a variety pack that included beef, turkey, and pork jerky. 

2. Favorite tech package: GelaSkins

I've mentioned before how I won the GelaSkins giveaway on Laura's blog a few months back. I really love the artsy laptop cover though! It gives my laptop some flair and character-I like that. The IPod cover is super cute too and fit perfectly.  

3. Favorite clothing package: Barbell Love T Shirt

I won this awesome Fran's Closet barbell shirt from Jennifer's blog, which is one of my favorites! I love how cute & comfy it is-it's great for wearing on the weekends!

4. Favorite supplement: Delta Labs hair, skin & nails supplement

I've mentioned how much I love Delta Labs products before, but this supplement is my favorite! I started taking biotin about a year ago in an effort to fix my peeling nails and have been taking this supplement for a few months. This product has biotin along with 28 other essential vitamins and minerals and is vegan & gluten-free to boot! I have just noticed how fast my hair has been growing too. I badly need a haircut right now and can't seem to stretch the time in between them like I used to. I definitely don't follow any rules, and just get a haircut when I think I need it, oops! Definitely check it out and remember you can use code BREATHEBLOG for $5 off any order!

5. Favorite gift: I'm Fit Possible water bottle

Well if you haven't heard, I'm Fit Possible is the most awesome (and my favorite)  online fitness community that knows the importance of getting your sweat on but also enjoying life.  When I got back from my Boston trip I had this lovely package waiting for me. A super cool sticker and glass water bottle along with a sample of Tisano cacao tea!  The water bottle has me toting my water around in style. I haven't gotten a chance to try the tea yet, but it's chocolate so something tells me I'll like it. 

DISCLAIMER: I was sent  Delta Labs hair,skin & nails + for no charge as a Delta Labs Ambassador but received no other compensation. I Any other products pictured have been specified as a giveaway prize or personal purchase. As always all thoughts and opinions are my own. 

Have you gotten anything awesome in the mail lately? Running any races this weekend?

  6. Mail is the best! Got a postcard from a friend who visited Boston recently - it's awesome to have friends who take mail sending as seriously as I do; I can count on postcards from lots of lovely places.
