ActiveWear for being Outdoors/Winter Elements #ActiveWear #GetActive

If you are an active family who likes to get outdoors no matter what the weather, we have some great options for you to check out this season.

Brooks Running, a favorite of ours, has recently put out the “Dash Hoodie”, which I am completely in love with. It has become a go to for me, one of those tops you reach for every time it is out of the washing machine. So soft (much softer then I’m used to in running gear and feather light) it is also warm and wicks moisture quickly. The material is breathable, and machine washable and dryer safe. It has a loose but flattering fit. I personally prefer to hand it to dry, I think it will last longer that way, but personal preference. It has thumb holes on the cuffs, and there is a storage pocket over the left hand that can hold your key, cash, or whatever your prefer. The hood is perfect for cooler weather, so you can use it until you get too warm on your run, then toss it off. Prices vary depending on what color you order (some of them are on sale), get yours at https://www.brooksrunning.com

running gear

Trek specializes in biking, bikes, and bike gear, and also has apparel for all sorts of active lifestyles. I’m currently loving the “Bontrager Vella Women’s Long Sleeve Thermal Cycling Jersey”, which is quite a mouthful. It’s a half zip, long sleeve collared top that is soft, lightweight, (are you seeing a theme here? Yes, really love soft workout gear) wicking, ventilated and offers the warmth you need with the comfort you want. It is very form fitting, really hugging your body. If you like streamlined gear, this is the top you will wear again and again. It also has reflective elements so that you can wear it day or night with added safety. Washing machine safe, and again, I’d hang to dry, but it dries very quickly.  $89.99

Icebug – Winter Sneakers at Their Best

Disclosure- I received the below in order to facilitate this review.  All opinions are my own and honest.

With winter here in full force, and it being a brutal winter so far, getting around can be challenging for many of us.  Icy roads and sidewalks (not to mention steps and trails) and the ever-fun “black ice” make winter walking, running, and in general on-the-going less then ideal.

running sneakers

The new Enlight RB9X by Icebug is a really cool shoe for this time of year- or really any time of year, since it grips asphalt and wet surfaces like a champ as well. Not to mention it has a great look to it, a fun and funky style that sets it apart from other, more boring shoes and sneakers.  (I don’t like plain shoes, it’s a “thing” over here.)  I really dig the colors and the options available.

I really liked these- you can actually hear them gripping, which is a little weird at first, but then it’s oddly reassuring.  Like- huzzah, I am not going to fall (as often) today! Ha.  These are great for runners, walkers, or anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors.

Jump Into Spring with the New Reebok Skyscape

Disclosure- I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Reebok. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Spring has sprung, and many of us are taking the time to refresh our wardrobes (and having fun doing so).  It’s always fun to get new shoes as well- nothing to make me feel pretty like a cute pair of shoes.  That includes sneakers.  I have a pair that I wear to the gym, and a pair I use for daily use.  I love the new Reebok Skyscape for daily wear, they are very comfortable, lightweight, and even machine washable.  (Right?  How great is that.)

Like many of you, I do a lot of running around in my daily life.  I also do a lot of walking in my traveling, and these shoes are both cute to wear and comfortable for the whole day.  I don’t usually wear them with socks, and so far, no issues with blisters or rubbing on the heels or toes or anything like that.  I got them in the bright pink color, because I have a “thing” with pink sneakers.  It started out with a pair my son bought me for a present, now pretty much all my sneakers are pink.  Strange how things happen, ay? But I love the color, and that the laces are the same color.  I also love the black and pink ones- if my store had carried those, I might have gotten them.
