Cotswold Outdoors

If you’re looking for a new waterproof jacket to help celebrate the arrival of October, you should check out Cotswold Outdoors, a site that features a wide range of weatherly jackets at great prices.

Friday Finds Under Fifty: The In the Swim Edition

I know, I know, it’s still freezing outside. But there are heated pools all over this great land of ours, and even those who don’t have easy access to one know that the weather will surely grow warmer over time. If you swim, if you use a hotel hot tub, if you want to sunbathe after a long, cold winter (just be sure to use plenty of sunblock and limit your time under those rays because skin cancer is definitely not superfantastic!), you will eventually need a suit to do it in.

One of the best places to look for a good deal in that regard is SwimsuitsForAll. Whether you’re plus-sized (up to size 34), have a long torso, or are just looking for a good swimsuit at a price that doesn’t make you wince, this is the place to go. They also have some superfantastic options for another underserved sector of the populace: women who have had mastectomies.

Penbrooke® Mastectomy Kenya Tankini Swimsuit
The choices for a really great swimsuit take a distinct nosedive post-op, but this is a option that doesn’t assume a lady doesn’t wish to continue to look her best after the battle. (courting cancer is far from superfantastic, but surviving it is absolutely superfantastic) Heck, I might want this one just because it’s so cute!

The original retail price on this beauty was $78.00, but right now it’s on sale at Swimsuits For All for the mere pittance of $24.00! At that price, you might want to get two.

Gym Dandy!

I know a lot of us have made New Years’ resolutions to get more exercise…and I know a lot of us are more than capable of coming up with dozens of reasons not to follow through. If you want to take one more excuse out of your arsenal, drop on by 6pm and take a look at the incredible deal they’re offering on this stylish DKNY gym bag.

DKNY Gym Bag It’s a practical nylon bag with suede trim and plenty of pockets, including one for your cell phone. What’s more, it comes in three handsome colors: Glaze (shown), Grey, and Navy.

The original price on this practical pretty was $229.00, but you won’t pay anything near that much to look this serious at the gym! If you go to 6PM right now, you can get it for just $103.50.

Now that’s a pricetag to do my heart good!

Start Your Resolution Early

The new year starts next week, but if increased fitness is one of your intended resolutions, you can get a jump on it by heading over to the Addidas site today and ordering these

Response Astro track pants today.

Addidas track pants
The ClimaLite fabric wicks persperation away from your skin, allowing you to jog in comfort longer. Reflective details will allow others to see you while you’re running in low light, for added safety. There’s a zippered pocket, so you can carry any small necessities along with you (keys, ID, etc.). The combination elastic/drawstring waistband means you’ll be able to wear these when the first few pounds slide off, too.

Best of all, they’re marked down from the original price of $60.00 all the way down to $36.00. Now if I can just figure out how to jog effectively with a jumbo latte in my hand….

Jogging Along

It takes extra willpower to go jogging on a cold, winter’s morning with frost in the air. So it stands to reason that finding something to make it easier to face is a good idea. When you can be stylish and thrifty as well, that’s a combination that can’t be beat.

Supernova Polartec Half-Zip

Take, for example, this handsome women’s longsleeve, windproof Supernova by Addidas. It will provide you with protection against wind and rain, while the design both supports your muscles for improved comfort and the flatlock seams reduce the chance of chafing and skin irritation.

On top of all that, it’s on sale for only $56.00 (regular price $75.00). Even I might consider jogging at that point!
