In Which Jenn Doesn’t Need New Running Clothes – But…

My dresser is 80% running clothes. I have a draw each for sports bras, short sleeved tops and tanks, long sleeved tops, and running pants, plus a couple free-floating warm weather tops and vests and a collection of hats and gloves. Probably, most likely, I have enough running clothes.  And yet I can’t help but coveting new things. It’s so motivating to say to myself, hey, on tomorrow’s run you can wear your new running socks – get excited! So even though I know, logically, that I don’t need to spend the money, I have a hard time letting a...

The Fairest Week In Review: 8/08

Hmmm. I know I mentioned this on Twitter, but I can’t remember if I told the blogosphere – have I told you yet that a lot of that Mickey Mouse for Target collection of which I reviewed a bit is at least partially on serious clearance right now? I picked up a bunch of the Mickey face masks at 50% off, as well as a Mickey-themed nail file set for less than a dollar. My Target also had scads and scads of Mickey head-shaped bath sponges if that sounds like something you’d be into.  After all, it’s important to keep yourself clean after a workout,...

In Which Jenn Lets Mickey Do Her Makeup

I’m such a sucker for Target’s Disney collections. I’m there every week to buy my groceries, and they always seem to have something new! Usually I’m pretty strong about not buying extras unless there’s a good sale, but in the case of the cheapity-cheap skin and makeup items they just released, I allowed myself to succumb a bit. Hence last week’s review of the sheet masks – and today’s review of an eyeshadow palette!  Quick note: usually I try spread out similar content so that you have more variety to read, but since I’m not sure how long this collection will...

In Which Jenn Tries Out Those New Mickey Mouse Sheet Masks

Target’s always had a smattering of Disney items available, but the launch that dropped a couple week ago is big – just check out all that loot above!  Mugs! Cosmetic bags! Makeup! Skincare! Hand creams and bubble bath and, yeah, some t-shirts and stuff too, but the latter is pretty average, if you ask me. Standard Mickey Mouse prints. I was immediately drawn to the skincare and makeup, with this romantic notion: how adorably apropos would it be to come back to your WDW resort hotel after a long day in the parks, slap on a Mickey sheet mask,...

In Which Jenn Pantsed A Mannequin For Running Tights

Anyway, let me tell you the story of how I pantsed a mannequin for running tights. Twice. Well, once I was more of an accomplice. But I’m getting ahead of myself. (What is the present-tense of pantsed? Is it “pantses?” That doesn’t seem right. Hmmm…) You may recall a coupled months ago I complained of tripping over a wire in the sidewalk and ripping my second favorite pair of long running tights. (THE HUMANITY.) Since then I’d been on the hunt for more running pants, of course, because if there’s one thing I don’t have enough of it’s running gear.*...

In Which Jenn Finds A Sneaky Running Gear Discount

We interrupt your regularly scheduled post I was gonna put up today in favor of breaking news: Target’s Cartwheel app is lying to you. You have the Cartwheel app, right? That nets you lots of extra discounts at Target? Okay, good. So earlier this week I saw that Cartwheel was offering 20% off C9 by Champion workout gear. Great! I need new running socks anyway. I carted myself off merrily to Target and began browsing. Post sock grab, I rifled through the workout clearance racks and found a couple cute tops. Cute tops are an important part of running...

In Which Jenn Corrals More Discounts

Discounts! I have more running-related discounts! I’m thinking of making this a monthly thing. Thoughts? SLS3 is offering their compression foot sleeve for $19.90 – a $20 discount – in exchange for an Amazon review (on the honor system as far as I can tell.). The sleeve is designed to provide arch support and relieve plantar fasciitis if that’s your deal. It comes in different sizes so you can customize your fit. If you’re in my neck of the woods, Groupon has a pretty good deal for The Great Inflatable Race on June 18 in DC – $29.99 for...

In Which Jenn Reviews A Cheap Sports Bra

Influenster recently sent me a 40% discount code off a C9 by Champion sports bra from Target. I was kinda on the fence about the whole thing – 40% off is good, but I have a fair array of sports bras already – until my Target run on Tuesday. Sports bras were on sale! I can’t resist stacked discounts, so I picked one up for review. The discount code covered two lines of C9 bras: power core and power shape. The main difference seems to be in the cups; namely, are they molded (shape) or no? Some are racer...
