WHAT IS A BETTY BOX?

Ever since Birchbox became a household name, We loved the idea! Now it seems like there is a box for every possible taste.

Even though the Betties aren’t in the monthly subscription box business, we wanted to create something that featured fabulous goodies for women entrepreneurs just like you. But those of you who know us, know that we had to do it in our own Betty way.

Each month we personally curate items we’re sure you’ll love. Once we get our hand on them, we use our photography and design superpowers to show you just how awesome they are, and then we give you our honest opinion about each one. These are items we choose because we think they’re beautiful and clever.

If there’s a product you think we should know about, send us an email. It could end up being featured!

Your business runs well when you’re running well, which is why we put so much emphasis on eating healthy foods and taking care of ourselves. Exercise is an important piece of that equation. We can’t do boring (it’s against our Betty nature). So whether it’s yoga, running, or weights, this month we’re sharing with you a few of our favorite things that add a little fancy and fun to our workout sessions.

Fabletics Featured Outfit of the Month | Available at Fabletics.com

Co-founded by actress Kate Hudson, Fabletics aims to make selecting the perfect athletic wear for your body, style, and activity of choice easy-peasy. You start by answering a few lifestyle questions- that’s when the magic begins. Fabletics curates a collection of outfits just for you, based on your answers.

The clothes are practical, comfortable, and stylish. And if you’ve ever dropped a pretty penny on some Lulu Lemon, the prices here are pretty reasonable by comparison.

You can buy your gear one outfit at a time, but if you’re addicted to getting new clothes for the gym, the Fabletics VIP program may be the way to go. It’s a monthly subscription service combined with a reward card. Get your clothing for 40% off, earn points to get more stuff. If you’re going to be shopping anyway… Just sayin’.

Half Toe Bella Grip Socks |  Available at ToeSox.com

Are you a yoga goddess? Or maybe a Barre bunny? Then you know what it’s like to have your feet slip sliding around on your mat as soon as you break a sweat. Trying to hold warrior one position on a slick surface is a losing battle. A little grip can go a long way in keeping you grounded.

ToeSox offers many styles of grip socks, the Bella being our favorite. With the half toe and open top, your feet remain cool and dry while you remain in perfect form. They’re offered in colors and patterns that range from practical solid black, cute heart patterns, to girly socks with ruffles.

FlipBelt in Carbon | Available at FlipBelt.com

A nice quick jog around the neighborhood. It seems like a simple concept, until you start thinking about all the things you need to take with you. Your phone, your keys, a little cash and an ID, a tiny snack; you’re now convinced that maybe you need to bring your purse with you on your run.

The FlipBelt exists for ladies like us who hate to be unprepared. Instead of lugging around a Mary Poppins style bag while getting your sweat on, throw on this slim, comfortable belt, and slide your necessities into it’s roomie, secure compartments. You’ll have everything you need (and even stuff you don’t, you know, just in case), completely hands free.

 

*Special thanks to our model, Christine Parizo. In addition to being a fantastic copywriter, she’s also a fitness warrior! Look at that smile! I don’t look like that when I run.
