Ruffles with Love Giveaway!

So the other day I got quite a gem in my inbox. Erica emailed me with a link to check out Ruffles with Love Etsy site and so I crept over and was shocked how cute the stuff was and in love with the great idea! I love the bows on the back of the tanks and love that it’s not specific to only workout gear, you know, something that is cotton that is actually cute and related to working out? What a brilliant idea! I like the fact that I can wear it out on the weekends, or go to the gym in it and it’s not some tech fabric that is hugging in all the wrong places. I also like the fit of the shirt and how long it is.

Also, it must have been my lucky day because Vanessa from Ruffles with Love wanted to send me something! I was stoked.

I picked out a custom gray tank with a pink glitter “Beastmode” on the front and a pink bow. I wore it all around Arkansas! I ended up with a medium size and I love it.

Here are the glitter letters. I’ve washed my shirt and they are perfectly fine. I love how glittery they are!

Here’s the top of the tank. It’s a normal tank and really soft. You can see the bow peeking through the back here as well.

Here’s the back with the bow. The bow is glued onto a safety pin type thing, I don’t know the right name for it, and I took it off for washing and re-attached it to the shirt after it was washed.

Normal clothes that are fun to wear that still talk about working out and being girly? I’m in! So therefore… it’s your lucky day too!

Ruffles with Love wanted to do a giveaway for one lucky reader… You can pick whatever shirt you want from the site and it shall be yours! :)

For all those girls who are gettin’ married soon they also have really cute tanks about working out for the dress and wedding related sayings that are super fun and you should check them out for some extra motivation! I love my Beastmode shirt and love all the stuff on their site so make sure to check it out.

Here’s how to enter the giveaway!

Leave a comment with what saying motivates you. I personally like the whole “Man Up” and “Beastmode”, but what motivates you? Why are you working out? Let me know and the random number picker will pick a winner on Friday! :)


{Ruffles with Love did send my friend and I shirts to wear in Arkansas for this review and offered to do the giveaway on my blog, and I am very thankful for the shirt and the fact that one lucky reader will win one too!}

    SO adorable!

    I get a lot of motivation when I think about my son. He’s only 2 but I just want him to think, “wow, my mom is pretty awesome!”

  2. My favorite is “beastmode,” because that’s, what, like a Weezy phrase?!

    Second would be “Sweat or Go Home.”

    I thought the bridal ones were funny, particularly the “November bride” thing… since that applies to me.

    P.S. Thanks for the seating chart site review! I will definitely look into it when I need to plan this out (a lot of consideration of who not to put together, etc. yikes).

  3. Misty says:

    I motivate myself by thinking of my kiddo. I want to be able to play and beat him as long as I can lol.

    I like the run hard shirts.

  4. Mrs. C. says:

    ahhh I’m so excited about this giveaway… I’ve been eyeing the site since you sent me the link a few weeks ago…

    At the moment, my dad is my motivation for my training to run my first marathon. I actually just wrote a post about him.

    I’m really digging the “I workout” shirt and the “Sweat is Sexy.” and the sweatshirt… “strong is the skinny” Actually, I love them all! What a cool etsy shop!

  5. Faith Plvan says:

    Show me your wheels!

  6. Victoria says:

    I love that tank! What motivates me is proving to myself that I can do it!!!

  7. Alison s says:

    BEASTMODE for sure, that is rad.

    The tanks look soooo soft!

  8. Sonja says:

    Since I think skinny is a *dirty* word, “Strong is the new Skinny” is the clear winner!!

  9. Jackie says:

    Those shirts are awesome! I love BEAST MODE the best, but Sweating for the Dress definitely motivates me since my wedding is in 3 months now.. ahhh!

  10. Amy says:

    The thought of bathing suit season rapidly approaching motivates me!

  11. Megan says:

    Signing up for a race motivates me because I know I’ll be miserable race day if I don’t get off my butt and train!

  15. Leigh says:

    I LOVE your tank! So awesome. If I won, I’d either get the “sweat now, rest later” or beastmode like yours.

  16. Danielle DM says:

    I love the “Shut Up and Run” shirt! It is definitely the mantra that I say to myself as I’m running and thinking about stopping. I stay motivated by telling myself that I need to be in good shape so I can have an easy labor and get back into shape more quickly after baby is born :)

  17. Gay Spencer says:

    I have two favorite motivators. “RUN: It’s cheaper than therapy” and “I Can Therefore I Run” The reason why: I really do think of running and working out as my therapy. I feel soooo much better after a hard day at work. And let’s face it summer always comes around and the bathing suits come out.

  18. Rachel says:

    I love the “Sweat or Go Home” idea. I’m motivated by needing to get it done! Just do it and get it over with, then you can go on enjoying your day/evening!

  19. Stevi says:

    I’m all about challenging myself and doing something I never thought possible.
    I love the shirt that just says ‘Sweat’

  20. Margaret says:

    I LOVE the “No Coffee No Workee” what a cute idea. I’m always looking for a way to girlie up my workout attire!

  21. alice says:

    I’m super competitive so setting ambitious goals motivates me. I like shirt that says”Push Yourself.”

  22. abbi says:

    I motivate myself by setting goals and achieving them and then aiming higher!

  23. Gay Spencer says:


  24. jamie says:

    I love the saying from Zig Ziglar “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”

    And I love working out, I’m currently running, and training with crossfit and playing roller derby on two teams.

    I just discovered this shop on Etsy and would love a shirt!

  25. Stefana says:

    These are adorable!! Living a longer life motivates me to work out!

  26. jenny says:

    “sweat now rest later”

    i cannot say that i love working out, though it’s a huge part of my life. i love looking and feeling healthy. love running….it’s my drug of choice.

  27. Laurie says:

    I live and wear “It’s only pain; it goes away”. I run and workout to be healthy. Unlike most people I exercise to maintain weight. I have struggled with anorexia for 16 years. I workout and eat to be healthy. I currently holding strong to 125 pounds (1 year). “Strong is the new sexy”

  28. I love it! I like man up too! I always say it to my husband when were working out. I’m more hardcore than him In the workout dept. When he starts to complain I always tell him to man up!

  29. Laura says:

    I love the “Shut up and Run” shirt. It’s totally what I tell myself when I’m trying to make excuses to skip a workout/run.

  30. Laurel C says:

    I’ve always been super self-motivated, but I like to constantly challenge myself and see what I’m really made out of!

  31. I am now motivated for the dress and for building strength in general. I love the strength I build from yoga and look forward to getting in shape for the big day.

  32. Jen says:

    I am really competitive so I think about all the people who run, like on biggest loser or celebrities, and try to beat them in my head. It works for me!

  33. Crystal says:

    A year from now, you will wish you had started today motivates me to go workout

  34. Sandee says:

    Turning 45 and being in the best shape in years motivates me! I want to keep going and get even stronger!

  35. I like a quote from Jerry McGuire “I’m all heart ___________ ________” I’ll leave the last part of the quote out!

  36. Monika says:

    You started talking about a Ruffles give away and I thought potato chips… :)

  37. Nina says:

    You know I love ruffles!! What motivates me? Well…my weight loss several years ago is what keeps me going. I know how sluggish I felt and that I wasn’t happy with what I saw in the mirror and I NEVER want to get to that point again. I feel SO GREAT when I am working out and maintaining an all around healthy lifestyle. Another thing that motivates me- good friends to keep me accountable, like you!

  38. Erin says:

    What motivates me is the challenge. I step out that door and I think, “oh can I do this, today?” A few miles in I think, “look at how far my little legs have taken me!” The challenge, mission and result are a part of a truly awesome journey.

  39. Jessica says:

    I LOVE ruffles!! What motivates me is knowing how good I feel when I get regular workouts…and my honeymoon coming in June is pretty good motivation too : )

  40. Jen says:

    I’m motivated by everything and everyone. Crazy, I know.

  41. Natalie says:

    I’m mainly motivated to give myself a healthier, better life than what I have now. Also being a bridesmaid in a wedding at the end on June is great motivation as well!! I’ve also noticed that the days I run I am much more productive and check things off my to-do lists.

  42. Kathy says:

    Oh, I love those shirts! I really like the ones that say “Strong is the new skinny” and “Too Strong to Quit”.

    What motivates me is the feeling of being active – I LOVE the way I feel when I’m fit. I also just love exercising. But it’s the feeling afterwards that gets me going when I’m feeling lazy.

  43. Ashley h says:

    I feel motivated by knowing I’m working towards being better than I ever was. :)


  44. Nicki says:

    Races always seem to motivate me — along with running buddies. Those two things are definitely helpful to getting my butt out the door! :)

  45. So cute. I like the “sweat now, rest later”

  46. Nicholas says:

    No love for your male readers :\

  47. Melanie says:

    What cute tanks! I’ve always liked “shut up and run” myself!

    I am motivated by the idea of living a long and healthy like full of physical accomplishments! :)

  50. Brown Girl says:
