Honestly, I'm not trying for a tan, I'm just attempting to have my legs not look so alabaster-white. One application and I'm good for nearly a week - plus, it barely has any scent, which is a win in my book. I got this at Target but you can find it all over - seems to run between $9 - $10.
These Nike running capris:
I finally decided it was time to replace my five-year-old Nike capris, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the fabric is a lot lighter now. I've been wearing these layered with a running skirt and even on our hot days I'm not any more uncomfortable than if I was wearing my liner shorts under a skirt. Plus they have a nifty zippered back pocket for keys and things. My bonus with these was that they rang up at $29.95, when the price marked was $59.95...thank you, Academy! (and yes, once I saw the price, I went back for a couple more pairs a few days later)
My new iPhone cover:
My old Otterbox was all stretched out, but I didn't want to spend the hefty amount on a new case. Thanks to a couple of friends, I discovered this brand - Koolkase - much cheaper, but still with enough rubber bumpers and padding to save the phone if (or in my case, when) it's dropped. Check online for the style/pricing - I think I paid $14 and change for this one, shipped.
This sports bra:
Anita Air Control. I love it because it's strong enough to contain the girls when I run, but it doesn't feel like a straitjacket. Plus, the mesh fabric helps to keep me from overheating. It comes in several colors, but I am a cheapo and bought this crazy orange one because it was only (ONLY!) $37. I've worn it for a couple of months now and liked it so much I finally bought another one, in black. Maybe someday I'll get a white one, but not while it's only available at the regular price of $67. Check Amazon for deals, plus they have free shipping and returns, which is helpful if you need to try out a couple different sizes.
This machine at the gym:
The leg press. No matter what size/weight I am, I have big thighs. But when I use this machine, I appreciate my how strong and powerful they are, which is a nice change from my usual lamenting the linebacker-size of them.
What are you loving at the moment? Anything I should know about?? Spill it in the comments, por favor!
