Win an eGift card in today's Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway

Ah… Good old fashioned bribery works every time! My body and brain have been demanding a little extra exercise motivation lately, so I’ve decided to award them with new workout gear.


I figure, if I’m gonna break a sweat, even at times when I really don’t want to, I might as well do it in cute clothes. πŸ™‚

There were those pieces I liked from Zella, which I’ve heard is like a budget friendlier Lululemon, but I’m a gal who likes options, so I put the question out there on Twitter and asked for recommendations for stylish, sturdy, affordable workout clothes.

A couple of girls mentioned Danskin at Wal Mart, and the Champion line at Target, Old Navy and Gap, so I’ve got a little more to work with now.

Let me know if you have any other ideas for me. The more the merrier.

Now, without further ado…on to the giveaway!

A class action lawsuit was brought against them for failure to live up to the hype and now I’m getting a $50 check in the settlement! I’ve never had a problem with them, as I use them only for walking (not running) – kind of a bonus that I’m getting $ back πŸ™‚
    Happy Saturday & thanks again for the giveaway!

  33. Wildchild22 says:

    I run 3x a week, usually with a friend or local running group, but sometimes solo. If I already have makeup on I keep it on, but I never put makeup on just to exercise. (But I MUST have earrings on! Otherwise I feel like a boy.) And I hate bananas.

  41. Nicolle S says:

    Makeup while exercising is a no-no for me. I’m at the gym to get fit, not impress everyone! Also, bananas are AMAZING! Great pre-workout snack too.

  42. susan hales says:

    I can’t do anything without my makeup on. When I work out I usual just put light makeup on, like BE. I NEVER leave my house without makeup on. I’m one of those that always runs into someone I know when I look my worst.

  47. Tuat says:

    Excited for spring!

  48. crystal Soto says:

    Okay I’ll admit maybe some light cover up and some waterproof mascara only at the gym! Anything more i think is too much. Just my opinion: )

  49. Melissa says:

    I need to do major for workout clothes, work clothes, and pj’s! But now that I’ve got the cash, I don’t have much time.

  50. Sarah r says:

    What a beauty of a day today!

  51. Genevieve says:

    Um, yeah, I wear makeup while working out! lol Well, just waterproof mascara – it keeps my lashes curled and makes me feel less… gross?… when I’m all sweaty. I tend to exercise later in the day or in the evening, so I’ll take off the rest of my makeup but leave the eye stuff bc that usu requires some special remover.

  52. Vnssa906 says:

    Ah workouts… I’m an “active” gym member but haven’t stepped in since early last summer lol. My friend is now forcing me to start going since she wants to lose her baby weight. She’ll be my motivation!

  53. jordan says:

    I don’t wear ANY make up when I work out, but I love wearing make up and playing with it when I get out of the shower after a good work out! Nothing makes me feel more beautiful than a good sweat at the gym, nice shower, and nice make up :)!

  54. Sad S. says:

    No makeup while I exercise – I don’t want stuff sitting on my skin as I sweat. However, I can’t help wearing just a bit of mascara when I go outdoors for a hike. Gotta bring out those peepers!
    And, I love a good banana. It is my pre-lunch snack at work!

  55. RayannaBanana says:

    I’ve been using Cover Girl lash blast 24hour mascara and it does not come off ever! I even have a bit of difficulty getting it off with my make up removing clothes. It does keep my lashes curled which I’ve always had trouble with.

  56. Nat says:

    I usually wear mascara and a bit of mineral powder when i workout.

  57. kaitm7 says:

    I love cute workout clothes, too. I especially love the brand lucy (–a little higher-end, but very high quality, so comfy, so cute, and if you search the sale section, you can find some really good deals.

  58. Zhar says:

    Lululemon is worth the investment but, from experience the Old Navy and Danskin lines are decent options for being budget friendly. They’ve held up through yoga, pilates, spinning and running. The Target Champion line didn’t last as long but its a good option for pilates or yoga but not running. Another line I like is the Adidas by Stella MCcartney Not cheap but So cute!

  59. Claire says:

    If I hit the gym after work, I don’t bother taking off my makeup before I exercise, to me that’s just as silly as putting it on just to go to the gym. I go as I am.

  60. Nika says:

    I won’t even deny it. I’m waaaay too lazy to exercise. 😐

  61. Larie says:

    OMG, bananas. I get made fun of all the time, because there is only a teeny tiny window where I will eat fresh bananas. If they’re still too green and firm, nope. If they have one too many spots, nope. Hahaha.

  63. shusheshe says:

    I don’t wear makeup when I’m exercising; all of it just disappears by the time I’m done!

  64. Ivy says:

    I wear a uniform of comfy skinny jeans, a t-shirt, and a hoodie. I tried to revamp my style and dress more fashionably a year back, but it just took too much effort and $ and I ended up feeling silly. Now I let my makeup be the star of my look. πŸ™‚

  65. Alison says:

    My workout buddy is my husband πŸ™‚

  66. Dawn says:

    Heck yes I wear some makeup when I work out…..and I am not ashamed to admit it! Never know who you’ll run into afterwards.

    On another note, what kind of winter is this? Where’s the snow? I want a winter wonderland!

  67. Ashley Miller says:

    I love wearing yoga leggings with loose tanks. So comfy!

  68. Audrey says:

    I can’t lie, I wear makeup when I work out. Since I wear makeup every day, it’s still on my face by the time I get to the gym. It’s not really a conscious decision like OMG GYM TIME IS MAKEUP TIME, it just happens to still be on my face.

  69. Amy D. says:

    Bananas make my tummy hurt. D: haha

  70. Dasha says:

    My university has two gyms– one near all the dorms and one on campus. My friend that lives in my building will literally come into my room and drag me out to go with her, so working out has been pretty easy lately.

  71. Yukari says:

    I rarely workout and when I do I usually just use the treadmill. I usually just fill in my brows, put some lip/cheek stain on and curl my lashes.

  72. Stargirl says:

    I just did two sets of ten burpees. This is a huge accomplishment.

Do not like target’s champion line pants. They give u came ltoe, lol:). Even my bf noticed. RetuuuuurnedThere are a few things more embarassing than camel toes and visible panty lines. Even the gretest make up won’t help u then.

    Would love to win… please! πŸ™‚

  94. Chelsea says:

    I like either the elliptical (with intervals of going backwards) or intervals on the treadmill. I don’t wear a ton of makeup when I exercise, but I at least put on eyebrow pencil (my brows are sparse) and mascara (my lashes are blonde at the tips!)

    I love bananas, and more importantly, my bunny Quincy loooovvves bananas. They are his favorite thing. I just bought the new CoverGirl LashBlast 24 Hour mascara in black gold, and I LOVE IT. It kept my lashes curled, no flaking, no smearing, and a pretty golden glint to it. No workout buddy, but I’m currently wearing yoga pants (though I do plan to hit up the gym later)

  128. Krista says:

    My favourite mascara has to be blinc. It has the longevity of a waterproof but comes off with hot water- just awesome. I can cry, run, do yoga, bike, nap with this stuff on and it won’t smudge or flake. It just rocks! Thanks for the giveaway!

  135. sweeks1980 says:

    Right now I’m using Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara, which is a tubular, water-resistant mascara. I like the actual product, but I’m not loving the price tag ($24 is just too much for mascara).

  137. Maureen says:

    I like to walk every day.

  138. Summer Gray says:

    My favorite workout right now is Insanity by Beachbody! Have you tried it?? I am almost done with the first round….time for some new workout clothes for me too! Have you gone shopping yet? Which brand did you choose? I love lululemon but I wear mostly Champion, it’s easier on the pocketbook!

    Hey girl, as a fellow D cup gal, I know the importance of a good sports bra. It’s a bit pricey but I’ve heard that the Freya Active line has great picks and good support (, and Coobie bras are really comfy and are good for workouts and a more affordable option ( Best of luck! xoxo

  144. Lucas says:

    I love swimming, I find it that it works out my whole body and I don’t feel sore in the same way the day after. I try to combine both though since it is probably the best way to do it. Thanks for the give away Karen!!

  147. Carolyn says:

    i get all my workout gear on sale – nike and zella- just got a long sleeved nike dri-fit shirt- in pink!- for about $13 at macy’s prez day sale. i haven’t had good luck with less expensive brands- most times, they either fall apart too quickly or just don’t fit right. nordies always has nike and zella in their sales. the only problem i ever had with zella was wearing pink or blue shirts to bikram and the colors ran all over my towel. (and me)

  148. Karen Stauss says:

    I’d love to win this – NARS Gaiety is calling my name!

  149. Lys Draper says:

  150. auroragyps says:

    I love bananas. Love them on a PB sandwich (with or with out honey), on my cereal, and plain. I can only buy them during the cold months though, as hot & muggy weather does horrible things to my basement apt & worse things to my bananas.

  151. Jessica says:

    I love my lulu lemon pants, I wear them to workout and throughout my day! They are amazing but too bad for the price!! πŸ™ thanks for the opportunity to win!

    Thanks for the giveaway! I received my Sephora order with Nars Mexican Rose yesterday. So pretty! Haven’t worn it yet but swatched it on my hand and it left a stain even after washing. Excited to try it out πŸ™‚

  163. Karen says:

    most comfortable outfit… sweat pants and a sweatshirt — VS PINK line is the best!!

  166. Sophie says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! Loooove bananas (love plantains, too!). and I love to eat them both (not simultaneously, tho) in my fav outfit, jens, tees and sneakers. And I especially love to nap with my kitties!

  167. Anna says:

    Oh I love bananas. My parents named me accordingly, as I loved banana baby food. My bf also calls me Bananna :3 Man, I could go for a banana right now. They’re creamy, sweet, healthy, but delicious at the same time!

  168. Cass says:

    I hate working out! I do not wear make up when working out because I hate wearing make up while sweating. πŸ™‚

  169. Renee says:

    Makeup and exercise (which for me consists of dance), do not go well together. Only exception is for shows, but that’s a whole other story.

  170. Kim says:

    I used to love bananas, but I quit eating them when I found worms in the last batch I bought from the grocery store, eww!

  171. Joe says:

    Love to win for wife

  172. Denniesha says:

    I love Bananas! and the only workout I ever do is when I randomly play Just Dance 2 or 3

  173. LauraA says:

    Ah, workout gear! I upgraded some of my winter workout gear this year, and found that the long-sleeved workout tees (scoop neck version) from H&M are really fantastic, and are the best-fitting that I’ve found in years. The fit is close to the body, but not so snug that it restricts movement and are loose enough to wear a tank and sports bra comfortably underneath.

    I’ve had a decent experience with a C9 sports bra purchased at Target last month, even though I normally go for higher-end, sturdy sports bras.

    Thanks for another great giveaway opportunity, Karen!

  176. Nina says:

    sweats are definitely the most comfortable things to wear.

  177. Cindy says:

    I don’t wear much to begin with so I don’t mind wearing makeup to the gym. I only have 3 necessary things I must put on: brows, liner, and concealer for my undereyes.

  178. Emily says:

    I always end up wearing makeup when I workout, which is probably bad for my skin…oops!

    It’s said that getting a great body has the most to do with a good diet.
    For me, I *must* exercise too – not to fuel the burn fire, but because I find exercising really helps me eat better. I happen to know the calories for just about everything & that 1 hershey kiss = 25cal = 1/4 mile…. Math like that helps me realize that 1 really don’t want to have to run a FULL MILE for just 4 hershey kisses….

    the best sports bras i’ve ever found are the champion ones from target with the thin straps. so much support (and i need it!) and i LOVE the old navy yoga pants. the only issue i have is that after you wash them, some stay the way they were and some strech a little. but they’re a great deal for the money!

    I’ve been fighting a cold for the last 3 days, so I’ve been on a short sabbatical from exercise. I usually do elliptical (love my life fitness machine!), yoga, & pilates.

  239. I just stumbled across your website how glad I am its brilliant i have one to this shows my real passion for hair and make up Im currently studying media make up and hair design which is amazing.

    I never wear make up when I excersie, thats a lie I always have to make my eyebrows look good by filling them in and extending them only slightly this gives me the confidence to get my excersise clothes out and head on over to zumba (dance class) which might i add is amazing.

  249. Resa says:

    I always try to take off face makeup when I work out. I don’t want to clog any pores. Sometimes I leave eye makeup on and my non waterproof mascara usually doesn’t run (only a tiny bit on the bottom) :).

  250. Kayla says:

    I’ve been trying to start working out regularly but I haven’t exactly been successful.

    Favorite workout routine: Warm up on elliptical, stair master, then run 1 mile! Do lunges and my blitz ab routine that has been working for years.

    I love Adidas workout clothes. However, there’s an awesome brand called Alo that has caught my eye. LOVE LOVE LOVE their stuff! I’m drooling over some shirts they have.

    Thanks for the giveaway, Karen! Hope you’re having a lovely Saturday so far πŸ˜€ Wish me luck on my tests this next week!

  252. Heather says:

    My favorite workout activity? HIP HOP classes at the gym! I used to take all sorts of dance classes, and hip hop is so much fun to learn!

  253. I’m loving Zumba at the moments it’s so fun I forget it’s exercise πŸ™‚

    I wear tinted moisturiser or bb cream to the gym with a coat of lip balm , I like to look healthy and glowing during a workout rather than made up x

  254. I dnt workout but if I did I sure wouldn’t be wearing any makeup doing so, maybe some flavored lipgloss and that’s about it.

  255. Selina says:

    I avoid exercising like the plague!

  256. Alexis says:

    I like the workout clothes from Target. It helps that they’re affordable. And yes, I wear makeup when I work out. I wear makeup just about all the time so I would have to wash it off before working out and reapply after working out…. which I think is a little overkill :). Besides, workouts are good tests of certain types of makeup :).

  257. Sarah says:

    While working out I don’t usually wear more than under eye concealer and brow powder. I don’t like the feeling and idea of my makeup sweating off so I avoid wearing face makeup.

  258. MysteriousWho says:

    Err… So I broke down and purchased the Guerlain Météorites Cruel Gardenia when I saw it in stock. It’s gorgeous… but I really should be watching my pennies. What to do?!!!?!?!?

  259. KaylaK says:

    I need to start working out! I usually love doing cardio and some weights too. I have the clothes and shoes..I just need to get on a consistant schedule, once I start I know I’ll be okay. It’s been a tough year for my working out resolution since my one workout buddy (best friend/sister) lost her life to ovarian cancer on Valentine’s Day. πŸ™ I do wear some makeup when I work out, just a little bit of foundation to even out some post breakout marks, light eyeliner and my favorite mascara to wear with anything. I love Clinique’s Lash Power mascara because it’s water-resistant but comes off with warm water.

  260. Nicole O. says:

  264. Meredith says:

    I like buying workout clothes but I never seem to work out… hmm, should fix that.

    I haven’t worked out in forever! Going to start going back to my Zumba classes soon. My workout buddy, my nana, hurt her back. πŸ™ When I go to Zumba though, I love to wear tinted moisturizer, lip balm, and maybe a little mascara.

  271. Joanna says:

    I have nothing bad to say about bananas. I should be sick of them by now but I love them. And makeup when you’re working out just sounds uncomfortable and messy.

    I will wear tinted moisturizer and some light concealer when I work out. Nothing more though.

  286. Joya M. says:

    HMMM…I guess I’ll answer ALL of the questions! πŸ™‚
    I do currently exercise and my current favorite workout activity is definitely running around the lake in my complex. It’s so much easier than crunches and push-ups! I don’t wear makeup when I exercise because I really don’t even like the idea of sweat and makeup coexisting. So, unless I’m going to the gym where there are people I know and I don’t want to be bare-faced around them, I skip the makeup. As for bananas, I like the way they taste, but I hate the texture. My favorite waterproof mascara is Diorshow Waterproof Mascara. I don’t have a workout buddy because I’m not comfortable being super sweaty and gross around other peopleÒ€¦.yikes! πŸ™ I think my most comfortable outfit consists of a T-shirt and comfy sweats.

  287. Step says:

    Usually my exercise of choice is outdoor running, but I’ve been spinning through the winter to maintain endurance and it is awesome.

  290. Becca says:

    To be honest, I think it’s a little silly when people wear makeup to the gym-you’re just going to sweat it off! To me, it’s a little bit like putting on makeup before you go to sleep-pointless. Besides, you’d just have to reapply your makeup afterwards anyway since it would be all gross and runny. But, I guess to each his own

  295. t.p. says:

    I love exercise.

  296. Amy says:

    I work out more now than I ever have before, which is saying a lot because I was on active duty for the U.S. Army two years ago. I love weight training and setting new personal records (that’s what keeps me motivated), but my all time favorite thing is running. It can be unenjoyable while actually running, but no other work out I have done can compare to the feeling that running leaves you with. My motivation to keep going is just knowing that after each work out I will be just a tiny bit healthier than I was before. I won’t be just another American suffering from obesity.

  297. When I workout IÒ€ℒm usually not worried about my makeup or what IÒ€ℒm wearing. I just want to be comfortable and presentable. It looks a little ridiculous when I see women all dressed up, with a fresh face of makeup on. Just do you, and wear and do what makes you feel good.

    On another note, I just got out of the military, after being in the Air Force for 8 years, last month, and IÒ€ℒm having a lot of fun with makeup that I was never able to wear before. I started a blog recently and would like to get more members to my page, so your Giveaway idea really gave me some food for thought. I think IÒ€ℒll be doing a giveaway pretty soon too, so Thank you!

    My workout partner is my 4 year old daughter. She’s always on me about making sure I exercise. Now that im 5 months pregnant, she makes me get up and move around so that the new baby “has fun”.

  335. Felis says:

    I dance! Three times a week when I’m lucky!

  336. Sunny says:

    I power walk 3 miles every day.

  337. IsabelG says:

    Have you tried Meleau Port from Ports of New York? It is AMAZING!!!

  338. JVieve says:

    To get my best complexion, I try to start my day with a cardio or hot yoga work out to get sweaty. The more sweat, the more dirt and left over makeup get pushed out of my pores. Washing your face with a gel cleanser after exercising will wash away everything that the sweat brings up–creating the perfect slate for skin care and makeup products. Some of my favorite work outs: Jillian Michaels’ Yoga Work Out DVD–it comes with two 30-min routines that I cannot get sick of! πŸ™‚

  339. Mavel Golden says:

    I like wearing Uggs when it’s cold outside and I hope I win the giftcard.

  340. Z. says:

    I usually work out in the morning, before I shower and get ready for work, so no makeup for me.

  341. Arushi says:

    Hmm… My mom is my workout buddy, and sometimes a good friend of hers, because she likes to run marathon, and I prefer to run vs other ways of exercise. I never work out too much, and I just get lazy. πŸ˜›

  342. Catherine says:

    Bananas? Love ’em.

  343. Stacie says:

    I wish I had the energy to work out more but with 2 kids, it’s almost impossible!

  344. CJ says:

    need to get back on track!

  345. Lauren says:

    I just started to eat healthier and workout as well and I feel great! I think that Old Navy has the best workout clothes and they are always on sale! Thanks for the giveaway πŸ™‚

  346. Christin says:

    When the snow is gone im gonna exercise again πŸ˜›

  347. Jen says:

    I would love to get that new Chloe perfume at Sephora, so here’s to being lucky!

  348. Tiffany says:

    I hate running but I make myself do the couch to 10K program just so that hopefully….I’ll enjoy it more after getting better endurance.

    Here’s to hoping!

  349. Katherine says:

    I do heated vinyasa yoga and I never wear makeup when I work out. I sweat wayyy to much and end up wiping the sweat out of my eyes and off of my face that I can’t imagine any would stay on at all.

  350. MelodyJ says:

    I want to try Zumba. Everyone seems to love it. Right now I do Cardio/Strength Intervals, Weight Training, Yoga and Pilates. I love it.


  351. Marian says:

    Yes, I exercise. My favorite workout activity is Zumba. I love bananas. I eat one almost daily. I don’t wear makeup when I exercise. My favorite waterproof mascara is Maybelline Full n Soft. I don’t have a workout buddy. My favorite comfortable outfit is leggings, a tunic and boots.

  352. Lisa says:

    Lately, I’ve been doing Crossfit. It’s super fun, and really kicks my butt.

  353. Julia says:

    I don’t work out as much as I want to! Jogging and Yoga are my exercise of choice though

  354. Sydney says:

    I love being on the stationary bike!

  355. Kacey says:

    My only workout buddy is my ipod – though I haven’t been to the gym in ages! I bike everywhere on my college campus, so hopefully that makes up for it (yeah, right lol).

  356. Hazel says:

    Relationships are hard work. πŸ™ Have a good weekend, Karen!

  357. Deanna G. says:

    I like the elliptical!

  358. moniquehasana says:

    I am current training myself to run and I add 30 more seconds ever week. Love your blog and God bless

  359. Rose says:

    I haven’t found any other workout pants/shorts more comfortable, stylish, durable, and butt-flattering than Lululemon’s. I hate that they’re so expensive, but at least they last a long time. I do go cheap on my non-fashion swimsuits. Sporti bathing suits and bikinis are cute, functional, AND affordable – perfect for swim days and water aerobics (just make sure to size up as they do run small).

  360. Jenn says:

    Need to work out more as I have fallen off the wagon πŸ™ But when I do work out its all about the running and the weights! I usually have on makeup as I don’t take off my makeup until the end of the day which is after working out before bed!

  361. Lauren says:

    uh…makeup while I exercise? No way!

  362. Inday says:

    Reading The Illustrated Man right now and really enjoying it!

  363. Rozae says:

    I just think its a hazard to wear makeup while working out. Lately my routine has been starting from Monday, pilates, zumba, yoga, zumba and on Saturdays, weightlifting class. I’ve seen my jiggles don’t jiggle as much, which is a plus but i want a tone, firm body!

  364. Jennifer says:

    I love bananas and my workout of choice would be Zumba… It’s so much fun!

  365. Crittle says:

    Ballet all day everyday

  366. Ramblingdoll says:

    Sunday morning, I take a shower, put on my fave 1989 Levis 501 and my old cashmere sweater, a ponytail, a bit of Stereo Rose on my cheeks for that healthy glow, I groom my brows, a bit of mascara and shiny lip balm, my old baby pink Converse and I take my dog out. And I breathe, breathe, breathe. Feel good. Walk for 2 hours and give a call to a beloved one, for nothing. Just to say “Have I ever told you that I was happy to know you and have you around?” and put a smile on someone’s face. I come back, have a green tea, an apple and simply feel….alive and happy. Another day begins, full of possibilities.

  367. Bonnie says:

    Bananas + Nutella = awesomeness.

  368. Adia says:

    My favorite workout activity is to go shopping lol, I can walk for 3hours without stopping xD
    Adia recently posted … Christmas inspired makeup video tutorial (red,gold,green)

  372. Chanelle says:

    Bananas are cool enough. I had a dream last night where I was eating them.

  373. Flora Novak says:

    My favourite waterproof mascara is MUFE Aqua Smoke <3

  374. Erika Beck says:

    Hot yoga is AWESOME, but unfortunately the one in my city is sooo far away from my house… I love exercise DVDs though, and there is this one really old one called Callanetics that has the best moves… it looks really lame (filmed in the 80s), but once you learn the moves you can mute it and listen to music while you follow it! πŸ™‚

  375. tabby says:

    It’s been way too long since I’ve gotten to shop at Sephora.

  376. Prady says:

    I have recently started morning walk, its not been even a month but I feel Super through the day and feels like the usual day is just a bit extended with a couple of extra hours! More time, More work, More fun and more life!

  377. Michelle says:

    Favorite workout is probably DANCE CENTRAL!!!!!!!!!!!! <3

  378. Lesley says:

    Happy Sunday!

    I currently work out kind of infrequently. When I do work out, my routine is to run a mile and half on the treadmill and then stumble around the weights section. I typically go to the gym straight from work, so I wear whatever make up I had on that day.

  379. Kaoyee says:

    The only exercising I do is opening the fridge to see what’s inside.

  380. Lisa says:

    Come on lady luck! I have been obsessing over NARS eyeshadows lately. It would be fantastic to indulge in a little retail therapy. Thanks for the giveaway!

  381. Amie F says:

    I love bananas. I fact, I am making banana bread this morning…

  382. Evelyn says:

    I teach Zumba and it is definitely my favourite, but I also run, do step, kickboxing, dance classes, walking….mostly because I really, really like eating.

  383. Jess says:

    I always crush the top of the banana before eating it πŸ˜›

  384. Marta Sousa says:

    I am trying to keep a make up routine everyday!! πŸ™‚

  386. Vanda says:

    definitely no makeup while exercising! :O

  387. JMay says:

    My favourite waterproof mascara is High Impact Curling Mascara

  388. BettyS says:

    My workouts are extremely limited right now; I’m about two weeks away from having a baby. So I’ve totally lost my abs, but that’s okay, because I’ve been working out buns and thighs. I do wear makeup, because I’m not breaking a sweat with the little I can do. Sephora gift card = very good eye cream for very tired mom.

  389. Vanessa G. says:

    I’ve always disliked bananas (unless I also have a dish of peanut butter and honey!). But I’m studying abroad this year, and suddenly a banana among the mounds of oranges and hard pears is so very exciting!

  390. Andee says:

    I love bananas πŸ™‚

  391. Lisa L says:

    love/hate relationship with my treadmill!

  392. Eli says:

    Exercising: why is it so hard?
    My favorite is the rowing machine, but I’ll be honest: I don,t visitate her (it’s a she!) nearly enough, or at all, in the last weeks. Shame on me!

    thanks Karen!

  393. Y. says:

    I love bananas!! full of potassium!

  394. Grace says:

    Love to exercise, especially Turbo Jam! Makes exercising fun!

  395. Monica says:

    I like bananas and your blog

  396. Missy M says:

    I love zumba, but need to find a way to do it on a regular basis instead of just once a week

  397. LilyN says:


  398. Kathryn says:

    I like banana bread or banana muffins, but otherwise hate anything with banana!

  399. sara says:

    I love riding my bike, but need to do it more!

  400. Macha says:

    I’ve been trying trying to get back into the workout mode. I went to my gym the other day to try a beginners spinning class but it ass cancelled πŸ™

  401. Krista says:

    I never wear makeup at the gym. It’s so bad for your skin plus you are just going to sweat it off.

  402. Amy says:

    I actually like the treadmill, I have one at home so its easy just to hop on and get a good workout.

  403. quimerula says:

    No workout for me, thanks!

  404. Nina says:

    bad day y’day … one of my car windows got smashed by some punk during the night…

  405. Denise says:

    I just started exercising again after a winter hibernation. I don’t want to deal with my spring and summer clothes being too tight, so I’m upping the activity level now.

  406. Weian says:

    I’m allergic to hazelnuts. πŸ™
    Not nutella for me

  407. mrsshukra says:

    Waiting for the Oscars’s!

  408. Hohe says:

    I don’t wear makeup when exercising.

  409. Bing says:

    Wore EvRev last Sunday to my own babyshower. It was sunshine glory!

  410. I don’t believe you should wear makeup while you exercise. It’s just gonna sweat off anyway. I barely work out but when I do I like to do zumba πŸ™‚

  411. MMM says:

    Just got a coupon to go out to the club so I would need some hot makeup!

  412. Christina D. says:

    I just recently rediscovered how much I like bananas.

  413. Pansy says:

    I usually don’t wear makeup while I workout.. when I sweat, it tends to drip in my eyes… which means I get make up in my eye! πŸ™

  414. such an amazing giveaway! i love sephora!!! I work out pretty much everyday now doing kickboxing or running. i love it! i have 20 lbs to lose so i’m motivated!! πŸ™‚

  415. Avery says:

    I like the flavor of bananas, but hate the little strips of icky flesh that peel off, you know?

  416. Jennifer says:

    Love your blog! πŸ™‚

    I just ordered Nails Inc.’s Baker St. and cannot wait till I try it on. I love bright, vibrant blues!

  417. Mimsy says:

    I never wear makeup when I exercise.

  418. gia says:

    i don’t exercise much, but when i do, NO MAKEUP!! i don’t want my sweat mixing with my makeup and clogging my pores yuck

  419. jasmine says:

    I love all of the random questions you ask. I happen to love bananas. Let’s see, it’s cold and it snowed 7 inches where I live. Perfect for skiing! This is me trying to make the best out of winter. Anyway love your blog! Pc

  420. Gala says:

    ZUMBA! yeah baby

  421. Justine says:

    I’ve been lusting over hosiery and tights lately even though it’s too cold here for me not to cover my legs in thick layers!

  422. Cassidey says:

    I try not to wear makeup when exercising.

  423. Jennifer says:

    My kitty Rocco says “Meow” (hello) to you and Tabs! πŸ™‚

  424. Clara says:

    I don’t wear makeup when exercising- it’s just too gross. And my favorite waterproof mascara is Blinc- it’s not the greatest in a lot of ways, but the fact that it is SO easy to remove and yet never comes off during the day makes it my favorite.

  425. kalcedon says:

    I never wear make-up while exercising. I find it kind of pointless… for me, exercising/gym is not a place to flaunt my making-up abilities… and after all, I’m going to end up looking a washed-up zombie with sweat all around, and a little bit of eyeliner wouldn’t help my look, either :D. Also, only a certain amount of make-up products are really that long-lasting not to start pouring down on my face after sweating, and I sweat badly (+ somewhat oily skin)… and most of those stuff are not in my budget. so… yeah. that’s it :).

  426. Sarah C says:

    I love bananas! Great for cramps!

  427. Tess says:

    Just had a banana actually!

  428. Sarah says:

    I’m excited to start exercising again when the snow melts!

  429. Jenna says:

    I hate working out!

  430. Lydia says:

    My favorite workout activity is Zumba!

  431. Amy C. says:

    I like working out to exercise videos in the comfort of my home (no makeup required!)

  432. Melodyy says:

    I am mildly allergic to bananas sadly, but I still eat it (: haha. i do not wear makeup when I work out, afraid it’s gonna sweat off my face and make it look blotchy so I don’t really see a point! (:

  433. Stephanie says:

    I’m enjoying a Storage Wars marathon, happy Sunday!

  434. Helen says:

    I don’t wear makeup when working out! I am drinking iced coffee right now, and it isn’t even warm out!

  435. MizJawnson says:

    My clothes have to be comfortable when I work out. Most especially: NO WEDGIES! I’ll deal with sweat. I’ll deal with hair flopping in my face. I will not deal with wedgies. I’ve actually stopped a work out because it was so uncomfortable.

  436. Anna says:

    I must start working out again…

  437. Rho says:

    Generally, I don’t like exercise. However, I don’t mind it if I’m doing something fun. Currently, I keep in shape by taking Karate.

  438. Tiffany says:

    I change into my gym clothes ahead of time so that when I actually head to the gym it seems like less of a chore

  439. Lili says:

    I try to workout everyday

  440. amanda says:

    Hello Karen! Hope I win! πŸ™‚ Oh yes, and I work out maybe only once a week, but I do walk about 3 miles a day with my doggie!

  441. Lesleyk says:

    Ooh, exercise! I love the Les Mills classes, particularly BodyStep and BodyCombat for cardio and BodyFlow for some stretching and strengthening.

  442. Cynthia Morris says:

    I like to look cute at the gym. You never know when your gonna meet a cutie πŸ˜‰

  443. Amanda says:

    Bananas are good! Always take a banana to a party.

  444. Riley says:

    Swimming is the best workout because it doesn’t strain your muscles. πŸ™‚ Although, the chlorine is a downer

  445. Janet says:

    Dance is my favorite workout activity!

  446. Jess says:

    I know it’s expensive, but I still think Lululemon makes the most awesome workout gear!

  447. Cindy says:

    My go to workout is just running. However, I’ve been thinking about trying spinning just because I’ve search that it’s such an intense workout – but I’m scared to try!

  448. Melissa says:

    I am home sick with strep throat today, so my comfy “outfit” is my pajamas!

  449. Helen Callis says:

    I’m not working out much at the moment (gasp!) but when I do I always take off my makeup beforehand, usually with a MAC wipe. My most comfortable outfit is my DKNY velour tracksuit since it’s soft and flexible.

  450. AAJ83 says:

    i hardly exercise…even though i should πŸ™

  451. Olivia says:

    My current favorite mascara is the Clinique Lash Power mascara!!

    Dance Dance Revolution!!

  467. Joy says:

    I love bananas!

  468. Quinctia says:

    I am so not a fan of waterproof mascara. It just seems to go on thinner and even shinier, which I don’t like. It’s not the actual fact of whether it’s washable or not that I mind–I use some longwear shadow sticks and waterproof liquid liner and don’t have a problem with using some remover to get it off.

  469. Catherine says:

    I don’t like eating bananas straight up, but I do love them dipped in chocolate and frozen. Also in smoothies.

  470. Sue C. says:

    Bananas are my favorite fruit, so portable and easy to eat. I try to walk at least 10,000 steps a day and do some videos for aerobic activity – usually before I’ve put on my makeup.

  471. Kim D. says:

    I just can’t find the time to exercise. Thank you for the chance!

  472. Lina says:

    Ah, favorite comfy outfit would be my fiance’s boxer shorts and an old tshirt! Lol!

  473. Jenn says:

    Favorite workout routine is dashing from my 11:45 class to my 11:50 MWF mornings! Haha.

  474. elle says:

    I danced A LOT yesterday and now my calves are super sore. D;

  475. Rachel says:

    Love this blog! Have you tried blind mascara?? Love it!

  476. Agata says:

    My favorite waterproof mascara is MUFE Aqua Smoky Lash or Maybelline the Falsies Mascara from a drugstore.

  477. Liz says:

    I love, love, love my yoga. I started doing it about a year after I hurt my back, as a progression from the physical therapy I was doing. I like that it can be as easy or hard as you like, depending on how you’re feeling. I also like how non-competitive it is. The fact that it also encourages meditation and a holistic approach to health doesn’t hurt either.

  478. Monica says:

    I love wearing a little bit of makeup to work out – it gives me that extra boost to keep going πŸ™‚

  479. Kathy says:

    I work out in the morning, so I don’t even bother with makeupsince I’ll be showering and it’ll wash all off anyway!

  480. laura says:

    i don’t work out, I’m too lazy! nah, maybe 3x a week I walk on the treadmill
