Year of the Unicorn

I just got my Run Turn Around LS in the mail! It's a highly sought after item, so I was thrilled to find it on eBay for an amazing price. The color is Plum check, and I'm pretty sure I will wear this a ton. 
I passed on the Scuba sale this weekend, as I have one and I don't wear it very often. It's black and has faded quite a bit. So even tho they were a decent price, I just don't love love them. But I did pick up an Alessi Q tip holder. Talk about unnecessary purchase!! But it was half off. And orange. My 2 weaknesses. It's the cutest thing ever.

Happy Christmas Eve

I'm just about asleep from shopping, wrapping, cleaning, and I'm still not fully over this cold, but I wanted to say Merry Christmas to all of our lovely readers! Have a wonderful holiday with your loved ones. I'm hoping my kids sleep past 5 am. 
Today. I wore my Every Yogi LS in Indigo , Hyperstripe CRB, COH jeans , and Frye. boots. 
Merry Christmas!

On Second Thought...

So since I can't find a size 10 in the parallel stripe WUC, I decided to pick up the Runday crops. Just to see, mind you. I'm not PLANNING on keeping both. But if the tags should happen to get snipped off by mistake...
I am wearing the Runday on Sunday! I'm hoping to get a long walk in with the fam. The luxtreme on these is wonderful. I tried these on in solid black and they were sheer, but the stripes have awesome coverage. I do a ton of squats, so sheer is not an option! I love the fit, and the waist doesn't cut in like the Inspires do. So, merry Christmas to me!

I stopped in my local store last night and they had the new WUC, but only up to a size 8. I tried them on and I did buy them, but I'm holdings out for a 10. I just need a smidgen more room in the waist. But I'm holding on to these till I find them! They must be super stretchy cause I've never gotten an 8 in lulu bottoms before. They are more flattering on my shape than the Runday crops, as the seaming on those cuts my leg in half, and I don't love the black section at the ankle. But both crops are very well made, and neither showed anything while squatting. These are a home run!

Getting to know Jels

Since we have been doing  this blog for over a year (gasp!) we wanted to share a little bit about ourselves. Mer went first with questions that I asked her. And these are the ones she emailed me.

1. Favorite new style from 2013:
I love the Fluff Off Vest! And I owe Mer big time for finding that one for me. But I also wear my Full Tilt Long Sleeve a ton. Can I say it's a tie?

2. Favorite Christmas tradition? 
Last year we had a fancy cheese plate on Christmas, and our kids loved it! I love excuses to buy all the cheeses I've been avoiding all year at Trader Joe's.  

3. Funny fact: 

I never went to one day of elementary, jr. high, or high school. My first day of school was college! I was home schooled. 

4. Unicorn: 

Quiet Stripe Wunder Unders. I know. They are one of the most sought after items on ebay. And I am dying to try the new Black and White Stripey ones!!!

5. Favorite activity with your sons: 

Tide pooling. I love finding creatures and wading in the water with them. 

6. Other stores you frequent:

EBAY!. ebay. Did I mention ebay? I love a good deal, very nice things, and also reselling what I no longer want. It's like a giant garage sale. 

7. My family says I am... 

Hilarious. And a surprisingly good cook, considering I only started 7 years ago. 

8. Favorite way to sweat: 

Krav Maga. Love the bootcamp, combat classes, everything. 

9. Least favorite exercise: 
Box jumps. I have a very real fear of smashing my teeth, and I'm convinced I will eat it doing these. And you can't second guess a jump! I hate them. 

10. Favorite Lulu color:

 My first CRB was heathered Dewberry. It is so soft and goes with everything! But I also love Flash, Black Swan, Split Pea, Bordeaux, Inkwell, ....

Monday, sniff sniff.

After having the stomach flu over thanksgiving, we were hit again by sickness! I am finally feeling well enough to take my son to choir practice, hence my non-pajama attire. I'm wearing my Fluff Off vest on Deep Zin, Wren CRB under my new Fjord Flannel from Patagonia. I love this shirt! They altered the fit from previous seasons, so it really flatters my shape and doesn't pull in the chest. I kinda want another one for Christmas...

Yes, I have Gratitude.

So I had every intention of disliking this version of the GW, as my sis had one a couple of years ago and it did nothing for me. BUT. But. I got mine Wednesday, and I tore those tags off fast! It's so so comfy and it looks great with WUs and jeans. I have worn it everyday since I got it. And I fell asleep in it last night! I love the lining, the collar, the discrete logo placement, and the price is reasonable. The charcoal is very easy to wear, and I think it will wash nicely. I haven't heard a lot love for this GW, but I would try one on before you decide against it. The hemline flaring out flatters my body type, and it's a very versatile piece. And you can't complain about resale value! These are pretty much gold.

 I will admit, I succumbed to the hype. I ordered a Gratitude wrap. 2 actually.  But sadly, my Deep Zin order was cancelled last night. I also ordered black. But the Deep Zin is the color I was really excited about. I never liked this style before, as it gathered so much around the bottom and looked very sack-like. But the new pics look promising, and I'm hoping if my local store gets them in I can snag a DZ. 
I loved Paris Pink the first time it was released, but got very tired of the having to launder it separately. I sold or returned all of it. I'm holding off on the new CRB because it's solid, not heathered. I'm getting more and more selective about my purchases, as my collection isn't lacking and I'd have to sell something to justify a purchase.
