Daily Covet: Lululemon Run Skirts, I can’t get enough

Lululemon.  It’s true what they say about you.

My sons bought me a run skirt from Lululemon for mother’s day.  While I’ve worn it to golf and to walk (and maybe just to hang out in), I hadn’t yet used it to run, which is precisely why I wanted it in the first place.  I wanted something cooler than pants, but didn’t want the underneath shorts to ride up – shocker! there’s not space between my inner thighs.

Tonight I ran over three miles in the little skirt that could, and I’m hooked.  I want more and sadly, my lululemon store here stocks like 4 pieces and they are sold out online in every size but like 0 and 2!

I guess I’ll just have to visit Lululemon.com EVERY day until I find another skirt that is as utterly fantastic as the Pace Setter Skirt… and one that makes my butt look as good (so my husband has said!)

Daily Covet: Ask and ye shall receive… Bluetooth

Before I got sidetracked with my latest personal shopping assignment, I was surfing the Internet for Bluetooth (read wireless) earphones for syncing with my iPhone.  For years, I have been running with annoying “wired” earphones that hurt my ears from the get-go, fall out when I start getting sweaty or  both.  I once asked my husband if he had any at work, and he didn’t think that he did.

So today, I did a quick search for the top-rated wireless earphones and these Plantronics ones showed up on several lists.  My husband’s company does mostly B to B selling, but they do have a website with retail prices, as well.  So I emailed him and asked him if he had these earphones in stock.  Turns out, his logistics manager actually had a pair given to her as a sample… and she sent them home with him!

I can’t tell you how much less emcumbered my 3 mile run (read trot) was tonight.  Ask and ye shall receive.
