GIVEAWAY: Title Nine sports bra of your choice

by thedemuremuse on May 11, 2015

As someone who just started to get into road cycling and is still pretty awful about avoiding pot holes or bumpy paths, a good sports bra is a must-have in my wardrobe. I got the chance to learn about how to shop for sports bras, the different levels of impact that each style provides support for, and was introduced to a huge assortment of fashion-forward bras. Who knew?!


This week, Title Nine is hosting a few FitFest events here in Seattle and Bellevue! These events will include:
– Personalized bra fitting advice from a “bravangelist” expert
– An expanded assortment of bras
– Bras for sports, work-to-workout, everyday and date night
– A “Bounce-ath-a-lon” for those who want to put Title Nine’s bras to the test, with stations like hula hoop, jump rope, cup stacking, run around the block, hippity-hop ball & burpees

May 13-14, 10am-8pm
Title Nine Bellevue
10237 Main Street

May 20-21, 10am-8pm
Title Nine Seattle
7000 Woodlawn Ave NE

If you’re not local to Seattle, that’s ok too! FitFest events are going on nationwide all summer across all participating retail stores. Anyone interested in participating should RSVP at the local Title Nine Retail Location.


If you can’t make it to a FitFest event, I’m really excited to be able to offer one lucky reader a bra of their choice! This giveaway is open to US residents only and can either be picked up in-store (if you live near a Title Nine retail store, you’ll also get a personalized fitting session), or redeemed through their call center with a gift card.

Good luck!

GIVEAWAY: Betabrand Dress Pant Yoga Pants

by thedemuremuse on March 16, 2015

Left | Middle | Right

YOU GUYS!! This is probably the most exciting Monday post ever! I know I talk about Betabrand’s Dress Pant Yoga Pants a lot, but it’s hard not to when my collection of these bad boys has grown to 4 pairs since last summer. In all honesty, I don’t wear many other, if any other, pants to work as of late because these are the best pants I have ever owned. Not only are they ultra comfortable, but they don’t look like yoga pants at all. These are, hands down, my best kept secret (err, maybe not so much anymore after this confessional) at work– it’s the comfort of stretchy pants while still feeling like a boss in the office because no one can tell that you’re wearing the most lounge-worthy pants ever!

I’m super excited for one of you lucky ducks to get a chance to win a pair for yourself! There are a handful of styles of these pants (leggings, straight leg, boot cut) in multiple colors (they just added funding for prints too!), aka something for everyone! If I was forced to pick a single pair of pants to wear for the rest of my life, it would be a pair of DPYP.

outfit details:
button down top: Ann Taylor
straight leg DPYP: c/o Betabrand (exact)
cognac wedges: Nine West


a Rafflecopter giveaway

Winner will be notified via email. If I don’t hear a response within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn.
Contest closes at the end of this week! Good luck!

REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: BassBuds in-ear headphones

by thedemuremuse on May 13, 2014

Headphones are pretty much the bane of my existence. I’ve had such a hard time with them in the last three years, where I’ve had to replace 4 pairs in that timeframe. I’m not hard on them by any means, but I wear them often (commuting to and from work, weekend runs, and most recently while commuting between countries and cities on the tube).

This pair of BassBuds couldn’t have come at a better time, as my previous pair of headphones went kaput a week before this package arrived! I received a pair of limited edition, 24k gold plated, high performance ear buds with crystal accents. I have never gotten compliments on headphones before, but this pair is particularly hard to miss! One of my coworker jokes that I must be taking fashion too seriously now that my headphones match my watch haha!


My favourite thing about these headphones, aside from being stylish, is the fact that there’s a mic and play/pause buttons built right into the tangle-free cord. You have no idea how many pairs of headphones I’ve gotten tangled in the past while running and then having to stop to untangle the mess is such a time sink. I can also easily take calls without having to stop to pull my phone out to answer it (buttons on cords… super nifty!).

BassBuds is offering up a pair of these beautiful limited edition ear buds to one lucky winner!

Disclosure: I received these ear buds courtesy of BassBuds for a review. All opinions are my own.
