Kiava Athletic Apparel & Giveaway

So, I have this not-so-secret secret. I have been struggling so bad with my physical appearance lately. Since this summer I feel like I cannot get back in shape and no matter what I do I can’t seem to get my body to do what I want it to do. I’ve gained a decent amount of weight and it’s just throwing me! I don’t by any means think that I am “fat”, but it’s really hard to stay positive when your body keeps changing and when nothing fits the way it used to. I try so hard to not let it bother me, but taking photos every week doesn’t exactly let you forget your flaws. So I was very very nervous to take these photos. I can’t lie, I don’t love the way I look in them, but I think it was important for two reasons. 1. To remember that I don’t have to be a certain size to like myself, and 2. That this will be my motivation to get in shape and be healthy. So I’m starting my resolutions a little before the new year! Writing it here means I can’t back out right?

Even though I was so nervous, I have been so excited to share this amazing small business with you! Kiava Clothing is quickly becoming one of my favorite athletic brands and they are from right here in Utah. One thing I love about small businesses is that you get to know them on a much more personal level. The owners of this brand are some of the nicest people and so hard working! I wish you could all meet Olivia and Joseph! I can’t wait to wear my Kiava Clothing while I’m getting in shape!

Their athletic apparel is super supportive and obviously freaking cute! I have 5 of their bras now and they are my favorite things to wear, especially for high impact activity! The Braided bra (that I’m wearing in this post) and the Endurance bra are perfect for my running, zumba, and kickboxing. I also love their Dynamic bra, which has a little bit lighter support. I love wearing this to my yoga classes and just for lounging around.

You guys will all have the chance to win one of two gift cards to their site, just in time for the holidays! Look for it on my instagram around 10 am! @kristinrosedavis

I told him it would get stuck. He thought it was hilarious.

Yes, that is a shovel tied to a sleigh. Hey whatever works right? He also thought this was hilarious.
