Hello from Utah!

Two years ago I won a contest with Oakley Women describing how I "perform beautifully". It was a life-changing contest to be an Oakley ambassador and the opportunities with Oakley Women have been amazing. I have met some amazing women from around the world and because of them I have been incredibly inspired and motivated to continue my quest to live an active and healthful lifestyle. I believe that every opportunity in life has the opportunity to change a person, whether it is good or bad. I don't believe that we should wish for opportunities nor get jealous for the opportunities of others. We all have experiences in life that can change us but we just have to be open, willing and accepting of the change.

Oakley Women has sent "us" ambassadors on some amazing trips - Napa Valley, LA, Laguna Beach and now, Salt Lake City, Utah. 

Although it may look like all fun and games, there is a purpose behind getting a group of passionate, active individuals together. For when we are together, we brainstorm, we discuss and we do what we do best - be active! Oakley Women is working really hard on growing the women brand and the gear and products that are behind the brand and it has been so much fun testing products, giving feedback and just being around like-minded individuals.

For our trip to Utah, the purpose was to try 2013 gear, specifically snow gear. So what better than for us to test out products at Snowbird resort.
