RelaxReflect Review and Giveaway!

Pre-warning:  These are the pictures and angles you get when you have your six year old take pictures of you :-)  She didn't do too bad though!!
Ever since I started running early this summer, I have had the luxury of having long days of summer sun.  I had the time to feed my girls dinner, clean up and go for my run.   Now that fall is every so quickly approaching I don't have this same luxury.  My days are getting shorter and shorter and before I even have a chance to clean up from dinner, it's starting to get dark out.  When out running, I feel the same way I do while driving, which is buckle up for safety.  The only difference with running is you need to reflect for safety.  Drivers can't see you if you're wearing dark non-reflective clothing.  It's the small things that matter here!

This is where Relax Reflect comes in.  They have combined two of any runners favorite things.  Safety and Fashion.  Who doesn't want to look good when running?  Who doesn't want to pass a runner up at a race and have that person look at their shirt or pants and think "where did they get those??"  They are different and new and something many people will admire since they are smart yet stylish.

Now my personal review on RelaxReflect.  I received the Giant Stars Leggings to try out from Jean at RelaxReflect.  When I first got them in the mail I was so excited when I pulled them out.  They are adorable!  I knew cooler weather was only a couple of days away so I waited until then to try them out.  The fit is well, pretty true to size.  They don't move around at all once on and fit in a good place on the waist.  They are very flattering as well.  My daughter Katelyn, who is six, was in love with these leggings and couldn't stop touching them and saying how she wanted some for herself (Christmas!!).  I couldn't agree more.  I really have nothing negative to say about the fit and style of these leggings.  They were right on.  The reflective material is really well made 3M material and reflects amazingly (as you can see simply from the pictures).   It's attached extremely well and seems to be durable.

Where the hell is my padded bra?  Obviously not on me!

Now on my run!  Can I say these are magic leggings?  I don't know what it is, but I ran the fastest 5k I have ran while wearing these.  It was a cool night, about 50 degrees, when I went out for my run and they kept me comfortable the entire time.  Nothing moved and nothing managed to ride up the entire 5k+.  I am a happy girl!

Now these do run a bit higher in price than some other leggings that have no cool reflective designs on them, but these are fully made in the USA by a young company out of California.  Of course prices would be cheaper if they were outsourced to other countries but Jean is committed to keeping jobs here in the USA and making a product she can fully stand behind and be proud of.  I think she should be proud.  I really do love her products and will be purchasing from her in the very near future.

The Giveaway!  Jean has graciously offered to give one reader of Sweet and Savory By Sarah the Random Stars and Stripes Tank.  I wish I could rig this contest and win it for myself....but I can't be greedy!!
