Three Things I Didn’t Think I’d Like, But I Love

#1) Rise and Shine Jacket by Lululemon

A rain jacket  is one of those “bonus” items every runner should invest in for the occasional times you have to run in the cold rain. Based off style, initially I wasn’t sure this jacket was a smart addition to my running wardrobe, but now I want to wear it even when there isn’t a cloud in the sky.

What I like about it:  The fit of the jacket is less fitted than other running jackets yet doesn’t feel bulky on the run. The shorter length is perfect for a petite person like myself and doesn’t hit right at the widest part of my  thighs like most other jackets do. Lastly, it truly does keep me dry in the rain.

#2) Roux Maison Sport Detergent

Last spring, I was sent a bottle of this detergent to try out, but never did. Since the majority of my clothes are made of dri-fit fabrics I go through sport detergent quickly. A loyal user of win detergent, I wasn’t sure if Roux Maison could stand up to my high expectations. After using this for the past two weeks, I’m delightfully surprised at how good my clothes smell and how soft they feel.

#3) Purely Elizabeth Granola

I’ve never been a big fan of granola until Dani, sent me package of the Cranberry Pecan Ancient Grain Granola Cereal. This stuff is so good I keep trying to come up with reasons to eat it for desert after every meal. The ingredient list is hard to beat. It’s gluten free, vegan, soy free, free of GMOs and is seriously the best granola I’ve ever tried.

    I just pinned that Lululemon jacket purely because I liked the color! It looks so Spring-y (not a word, I know). Glad to read a good review of it, too.

      Spring-y should be a word, though!

    Yay! I’m so glad you liked the granola! There’s more where that came from ;)
