What motivates me + ElleBelleFit Giveaway

Hi lovelies!
Spring is in the air, summer is coming, everyone is starting to train for their bikini bodies and I’m a motivated as ever to do sports as well. Whether it’s the gym or running outside, workouts couldn’t feel any better than with the sun being out – I myself have a big wide smile plastered over my face all the time!

What else than the sun motivates me to do sports? It used to be a goal that I was training for (a so-called “bikini body”) but nowadays I just enjoy to move, to be active, and I love the feeling it gives me during and after the training. I am just an overall happy person when I get to move. Oh and I can eat more! 😉 And what’s even more fun is when I get to work out with friends. My sister is the best workout partner a girl could wish for, there is nothing better than crazy dance-off zumba lessons with her, or sweating and complaining together at crossfit or bodypump. So much more fun than training on my own – and we will reward us with ice cream afterwards. But I also love the motivation that new sportswear brings. I love putting together fancy gym outfits, mixing and matching and combining crazy colours that I would never wear to university. But the gym gives me a chance to bring out my inner fashion queen. At the moment I’m crazy for pretty sports bras – and tops that show them off.



And to give you guys some motivation, it’s time for a giveaway! My blog’s main idea is to motivate you to move, be active, to live healthy and happy, and what could be more motivating than a sportswear giveaway? I have teamed up with the amazing ElleBelleFit, whose outfits I’ve been wearing in several prior blogposts already, and now it’s your chance to win one of their amazing pieces! ElleBelleFit is a Irish/Australian online shopping hub for fitness fashion – just my kind of thing. They mainly resell Lorna Jane (sigh!), Onzie (their leggins are second-skin material) and pick out just the prettiest designs there are.

I love how their founder Kate put it: “Fashionable activewear really supports me and made me feel great when I move. I truly believe that when you look good, you feel good.”

So, how can you win one of their amazing pieces? Follow me (veryberrylottie) and ElleBelleFit on Instagram, and comment your instagram name and why you should win an outfit here under this post. For EXTRA chances, snap me (veryberrylottie) when you’ve done so (I’ll write down all the names of the snapchatters and you’ll have double chances to win). I’ll draw one winner on the first of April!

On the photos im wearing this bra and this top and below you can see some of my favourite pieces (click them for more details). Good luck everyone!

    Hi Lottie! My Instagram username is ms_al2 and I would love to win the giveaway because I’m just slowly rebuilding a healthy relationship with exercise after years with an eating disorder. Feeling pretty in my gym gear always helps me so much to get motivated! Plus, I haven’t bought myself some really pretty stuff in a long, long time as it’s quite expensive for a student on a budget. 😉
    Thank you for this opportunity and for being such a beautiful, happy inspiration. :)

    Hallo liebe Lottie, ich schreibe dir hier auf deutsch weil es für mich so leichter ist dir zu sagen warum ich so gerne gewinnen würde. Zu aller erst möchte ich aber einfach danke sagen. Danke dass du so ein fröhlicher und aufgeweckter Mensch bist und mich mit deiner positiven Art jeden Tag aufs Neue ansteckst. Danke dass du mich mit deinen snapchat stories jeden Tag motivierst und immer ehrlich zu dir selbst und zu uns deinen Followern bist. Genau wie du Liebe ich es mit einem lachen durch das Leben zu gehen. das wolte ich einfach mal sagen und ich dachte jetzt ist der richtige Zeitpunkt dafür. Nun dazu warum ich gerne gewinnen würde. Für mich ist Sport eine Lebenseinstellung geworden. Ohne Sport fühle ich mich nicht gut und ich liebe das Gefühl nach dem workout. Oft trainiere ich in “normalen” Alltagskleider weil ich es mir ganz genau überlegen muss ob ich mir eine schöne Leggings oder ein Oberteil leisten kann. Dabei spielt Geld natürlich eine wichtige Rolle und ich möchte ehrlich sein, Sportkleidung ist leider oft ziemlich teuer. Deshalb wäre es für mich etwas ganz besonderes wenn ich ein schönes outfitt zum Sport machen tragen dürfte. Ich würde es voller Stolz tragen und ich bin mir sicher ich würde mich dann auch wohler fühlen. Denn leider sieht mein Sportoutfit oft sehr zusammen gewürfelt aus . Im Moment trainiere ich gerade für meinen ersten Halbmarathon. naja lange rede kurzer Sinn ich denke die Kleider wären bei mir gut aufgehoben und würden mich wirklich glücklich machen. Denn auch wenn es nicht wichtig ist wie man beim Sport aussieht, im Gegenteil es ist total egal, aber schöne Kleider helfen einem sich wohl zu fühlen und stärken das Selbstbewusstsein. Also jetzt heißt es Daumen drücken. Ganz liebe grüße Lisa :) Mein instagram Name ist: lima_sarie_

    Hi! My Instagram name is @viki_bbg and I’d really like to win because I wear sport wear literally all the time and it’s so expensive to buy beautiful stuff a lot of the time!! Also, I’m short too, and I absolutely loved your blog post on that 🙆😘

    Hey Lottie! Why I should win? I think I should win because after a long break of doing sports because of a disease I finally can continue doing what makes me happy! I love being active and go running and of course I’d love to wear nice clothes while doing this! I also think that the most beautiful sport clothes are often the most expensive ones and it would be great to get those wunderful clothes for granted!
    I also really really like your blog and especially your attitude! And I would be so happy to win something on your blog! My name on Instagram is ___emily__ . I already wrote something here but I forgot to write why I should win don’t surprised :)

    Hey Lottie! I love your style, especially because I dance and do crossfit too! I wear a lot of black in my daily life but really love coming out with bright colors at the gym. But the reason I would love to win your ElleBelleFit giveaway is because I recently started an instagram to promote healthy living with the condition that I have. I have PCOS which means I always have to be particularly careful with my diet and exercise. I want to promote the condition in a new way and show people that it is possible to find health and happiness through proper diet and excercise and to mostly have fun and love the things that help keep us healthy. Of course part of it is dressing fun and that’s why I would love to win your giveaway. My instagram is @pcosxfit. Hope you check it out :)

    And why I should win? Because that’d be a perfect timing, as I’m finishing my two-week-dose of antibiotics on April 1st and will be lookign for ANY type of motivation to get back into working out! (Just kidding, sneakily done some light yoga today, as I’m missing working out real bad :D) Also, I’m a poor little student with too little gym clothes #thestruggle :p

    Hi Lottie!

    I’d like to win this giveaway because a girl can never have enough (high heels – NOOOO!) gym clothes 😉 and actually, as a student, it’s really hard to spare some money to buy new clothes, so this is the perfect possibility for me to get new ones!

    Hey Lottie!
    I’d love to win that outfit because I’ve just discovered my love and passion for sports again! Last year I was quite active and fit due to running and the BBG but then I sprained my ankle and injured my knee. Those injuries really threw me back because after each of them I thought that everything’s gonna be fine again and that I would finally get back into exercising, but then the next injury happened.
    Now my health and ankle problems are finally better and I’m so looking forward to doing sports regularly again! Winning that outfit would be a great boost of motivation and reminder to push towards my goals because I know that getting back on track is not always easy.. And it would be my new favourite workout outfit I think! 😀😊
