I love seeing my kids express who they are, what they love and what they are proud of in their sports and activities! Gabbi has some super cute t-shirts from So Goodly Apparel that help her do just that! Not familiar with So Goodly? Oh my friend you need to be introduced…

Make A Statement with So Goodly Apparel:

 

Gabbi received two of the cutest tees from So Goodly and has been basically living in them since they arrived…I mean I would be too, they fit her amazing and are some of the softest tees she has ever worn. She LOVES these tee shirts!

GYMNASTIC STONG tee:

BEAM QUEEN tee:

The colors are so vibrant and wash amazingly well! I have washed them more times than I can recall and it has not faded or shows any wear at all!

She has worn both shirts a TON and we get compliments on them all the time and of course a lot of “Where did you get your daughter get her shirt, it’s so cute!?” I think we’ve told about 100 different moms “So Goodly Apparel, you’ll love all their stuff!”

Oh guys the best and cutest part about So Goodly Apparel is the darling boxes they send their gear in! I love the added special touch, it really made Gabbi feel so special when she opened it. She loves her beautiful box and has been storing some of her jewelry and hair bows in it!

We love So Goodly and definitely this you should check them out! Don’t worry if you aren’t a gymnast, So Goodly has other collections just have a look, click on your fave and see what So Goodly has to offer!

We hope you love So Goodly just as much a we do! Oh and they have Mama shirts too! How fun is that!

We were so surprised a few days ago when Gabbi received another package from Lizatards with some awesome goodies inside! I’m so excited to share them with you so let’s get right into it!

Lizatards

Lavender Sparkle

This purple leotard is SO sparkly I just could capture its gorgeousness in photos! We love the sparkly swirl design, it totally gives a competition leotard feel and Gabbi loves that! She loves it and will being wearing to her next practice because she thinks it looks perfect for beam day!

Pink and Purple Triangles

liz6

This pink and purple gorgeous little number is Gabbi’s new favorite! She immediately put it in an announce she was not taking it off…and she wore it to practice the next day!

In addition to the two leos Gabbi also got a super cute carry all bag and fidget spinner!

We love the quality of these leotards and defiantly recommend them!!

Hey! Are you going to the National Gymnastics Congress in Anaheim? If you are be sure to visit the Lizatards at booth, it’s #137! They have awesome leotards and other goodies at their booth! We so badly wish we were going to be there!

BIG News from Flip Flop Leos and a GIVEAWAY!

FlipFlop Leotards

Style, fun & comfort in an affordable leotard!

ff1I have some fun and exciting news! My sweet friend Debbie creator of Flip Flop Leos has a BRAND NEW website! {Congratulations Debbie! Gabbi and I are so excited!!}

To celebrate the new site Debbie and I have cooked up a giveaway! Before we get to the giveaway I wanted to talk a little bit about the new website!

Before the new website, Flip Flop Leos were most easily found on eBay in the Flip Flops Leos shop, which is great for us, we love eBay and I shop on it regularly and have for over a decade. However, not everyone is comfortable with eBay. I know quite a few who just aren’t into it. Debbie noticed this as well and decided it was time to have a stand alone website!!! {*This new site is NOT replacing the Flip Flop Leos eBay shop it’s still there. All who are not comfortable with eBay now have the ability to get these amazing leotards!}

ffg2

If you are a regular or semi regular reader than you know that we ADORE Flip Flop Leos, but if you are new here I wanted to share a bit about why Debbie’s leos are our favorites. It all started in February, I really wanted to get her some new “fun” leotards. I searched a number sites but I honestly wasn’t thrilled with the prices $30-$50 per leotard just wasn’t what we wanted to spend. Then I thought I’d check to see what was on eBay. I typed in “gymnastics leotards” and if I remember right Flip Flop Leos was the 2nd or 3rd listing and I thought “Oooh those are cute!” and the prices were amazing!  Gabbi’s first Flip Flop Leo was the ADORABLE Hot Air Balloon and it was a shocking $14!!! When the leo arrived it was not only GORGEOUS but the fit was amazing, truly as if it was custom-made for Gabbi {Flip Flop Leos eBay listings all have a sizing guide to ensure the right fit!} and my friends the rest is history.

FFg1

IMG_0632Since that first Flip Flop Leos we have accumulated an entire rack {like we could open a store 🙂 } Gabbi adores all the cute styles. I love the fit, they are not cut high on the hip and have a wider crotch, meaning full coverage at all times! These are the only leotards that do not give Gabbi red pressure marks after wearing for a while!

ff7Our Gym now expects Gabbi to wear a different leo to each practice and her coach has defiantly learned they are all Flip Flop Leos! Her coach LOVES Gabbi’s donut leo {sorry its no longer available} We are continuously stopped at practice with a “OMG where is her leotard from?”

Truly I could go on and on…and on! We love them and thats that 🙂

Don’t forget to follow Debbie on Instagram  to see all the newest styles first!

*I’ve had a lot of questions asking why I’m now including “no fake accounts or emails” Unfortunately my last few giveaways had multiple entries from fake emails, meaning one or more persons made up multiple accounts to get more entries, in addition they also didn’t follow the rules making it be completely unfair to those who are following the directions. 

 

Some Lizatard LOVE!

Lizatards

*This post has been updated: Links have been removed for items or products that are no longer available. I apologize for any inconvenience.

It’s no surprise that we love leotards in our house…well specifically my daughter loves the leotards! One of our most favorite companies is Lizatards! Before we get in to what we are loving right now, here is a bit about Lizatards:

Lizatards has always been all about family and friends. A Mom started creating unique leotards for her daughter as a young gymnast. Her teammates and other Moms and Dads started asking where they could purchase these leotards, and a business was born.

That was almost 20 years ago!  And we still love what we do!  We choose the best fabrics available, are constantly conjuring up design inspirations for new styles with comfort and fit in mind.

Give us a chance, and we’ll show you that we listen to our customers, understand that  you have many choices when it comes to spending your hard-earned money, and we really appreciate your business.

The company’s name came from Liz’s son, he thought since Liz was creating and selling LEOTARDS, the company ought to be named LIZATARDS.  Yes, it’s kind of silly but it stuck.

We have a couple of new categories, one for Moms since we think Mom deserves a little something special every once in a while.  And Gifts that Give Back, a category where Lizatards gives a percentage of every sale to a non profit organization.

 

LizatardsWe just can’t get enough of their cute logo and leotards! This week Gabbi received a fun package with two of the cutest Lizatards leotards, and let me tell you she fell in love immediately and so did mama! The package couldn’t have come at a better time because on of the leos will be perfect for the 4th of July…trust me you’ll agree! Without further ado here are the leos!

Americana Leotard

liz2

This is possibly Gabbis favorite leo to date! She LOVES red white and blue so this is right up her alley! She adores the sparkle and strappy shoulder, it’s so much fun {psst it’s too cute with jean shorts!}

liz3

Pink and Purple Ombre Mesh Back Leotard

liz4

Gabbi LOVES the back of this leo so much…I mean c’mon don’t you? Its adorable! The gorgeous hot pink and purple is defiantly a favorite and gets a TON of compliments! {again adorable with jean shorts or a skirt!}

These came a few days ago and guys Gabbi pretty much lives in these! She adores the Americana so much and in fact wore it to the gym today and had SO many compliments! Even the owner of gym asked where we got it because they would like to look into the brand!! How cool is that!

liz1

I really love the quality of these leotards, these have the feel of a very expensive leo but not the price tag, which we love! There have been countless time we have gotten new leos only to discover they are of a lesser quality that we were expecting for the larger price tag, that is just not the case when it comes to Lizatards. There are a ton of other styles so be sure you check them out…NOW!!! They are great and we HIGHLY recommend them to anyone with a gymnast {or anyone who wants to get their daughter a great quality leotard for dance or anything!}

Last week Gabbi’s first ever Gym Fox in a Box arrived! It comes in a white box and is personalized with your daughter’s name! Gabbi was so excited when she saw the “Gabriella” on the package!

GFIB4
This months box had adorable Gym Fox in a Box branded sunglasses, ABOUTTIME Protein Pancake mix in chocolate chip {Gabbi’s all time favorite!} and Gabbi’s had this GORGEOUS Motionwear open back Leotard in all her favorite colors! Each box is unique so one of Gabbi’s friends received a GK leo in her box while another received a Foxy’s Leo on her box, this makes it so much fun {they love to see who got what!} If you have two {or more} little gymnasts with different preferences Gym Fox in a Box would be perfect, no compromising personality with this box!

GFIB1

This is Gabbi’s first ever Motionwear leotard and we are totally in love! Motionwear defiantly specializes in open back leotards and its no wonder just look that this back!

GFIB6

Gabbi says that this leotard is “so soft and so comfy” plus it has the most gorgeous sparkle to it! Honestly I cannot believe we have over looked Motionwear for this long! Thanks to Gym Fox we may have a new favorite brand! 🙂
Abouttime pancakes mixes are SO good! They never disappoint! I love that Gym Fox in a Box included this. With how much time Gabbi and so many other gymnast spend at the gym and conditioning this was a perfect and much appreciated fit!
