Show you care in the right way!

October is coming, and that means it’s time to put your money where your mouth is in showing you are concerned about those that suffer from breast cancer!

Q: Since you’re one of ever talented artists lets start with the obvious question, what is your favorite color? 

A: I actually don’t have a favorite color, I love the color wheel, I can’t favor.  when I was a little girl, it was yellow, I noticed all the little girls liked the color pink, I remember I said I wanted to be different so I chose yellow as my favorite color at the time.

Q: Quite the contrarian! So then how about another slightly artistic question, what is one of your favorite quotes?

A: Its funny you ask because I am obsessed with quotes, I have a small sketchbook where i write all the quotes I like, I like to collect them and read them, when I need motivation So you can imagine how hard it is to choose one, but one of my favorites is “I’ll make it to the moon, if I have to crawl” its actually a lyric from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, a lot of my favorites come from their music. 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Q: A music lover too huh? Well then, tell us, what is your favorite food?

A: I graduated with my bachelor’s in Visual Communications this year and I started freelancing in videography and working at a photography studio where I was a photographer and a retoucher. With those skills I started incorporating my artistry in makeup a long with clothing and creating images and looks just because I wanted to have some of my visions come to life, I came to Any promo because I wanted to help others bring their visions to life and I’m very excited to see whats in store for the future.

Have you ever had a problem with your work out shirt? Does it hold too much sweat? Does it end up getting a smell you cant get rid of? Maybe its just not the right fit? 

According to a report done by NPR (Found here: www.NPR.org/blog) those synthetic polyester blends you’ve been wearing? Yeah, those aren’t the way to go.

Though they may dry quickly, they are a favorite breeding ground for a few particular types of bacteria that love to make a stink of things. A particular nuisance is the fact that once these polyester breeding grounds take on an order its notoriously hard to get rid of it! 

So what do we recommend? Here are a few tips to choosing the right apparel for your spin class after work tonight!

So when it comes to picking out something to get the morning workout in make sure you pick something that’s right for you in comfort level, fit, and wicking level! Each persons preference may be drastically different but there are enough different products out there that we know you’ll find the right one for you! And if you’re looking for something for an upcoming event or race, why not let us at Anypromo.com assist you!
