BONUS! Day 8 – Brandson Top and Leggings
Okay, so I think we can all agree that yoga pants are the best thing in the whole universe, right? So, there is no convincing needed there.
What about if I tell you that these are the best yoga pants? Literally, the best I have ever tried (and worn every single day since I got them).
I´m wearing a pair while writing this, and I have another pair in my backpack for using later.
So yes, I might be a little bit obsessed with this brand.
And also, I love that their pants are actually in sizes for normal people (one of a few places, where medium fits me!).
Brandson is an Icelandic company, that designs quality active wear (read: use during yoga and every other second of the day) inspired by norse woman warriors, or valkyrie.
This particular set of clothes is inspired by Brynhildr, which was a shieldmaiden, and had quite a tragic story. She was ordered to decide a fight between two kings, and as the god Odin disagreed with her, he condemned her to live the life of a mortal woman, imprisoned in a castle. The hero, Sigurðr, slayer of the dragon Fafnir, then later rescued her. The two fell in love and Sigurðr proposed to her with a magic ring, which was cursed, and would bring misfortune and destruction to whoever possessed it. Then, a sorceress gave a potion to Sigurðr, making him forget Brynhildr, and marry the sorceress´s daughter. After Sigurðr was murdered, and when his funeral pyre was aflame, Brynhildr threw herself upon it – thus they passed on together to the realm of Hel.
So, with this uplifting story in mind, I sure do hope that whoever wears the clothes named after her will skip the misfortune and destruction!
Enter the giveaway below – and if in luck – enjoy the amazing set of clothing (sports bra and yoga leggings included!), named after Brynhildr! (I already have four pants, so I´ll try to convince myself that I don´t need more…).
