Getting My Shopping On

Today is a dedicated rest day, so I don't have anything much to report. Except for the results of a weekend shopping spree made possible by a few giveaways.

On Friday, I was contacted by Cafe Press to see if I was interested in my own Runner Sigg Bottle. Heck yeah! I could really use that to help keep myself hydrated at home. I knew exactly which one I wanted, because I often browse through their stuff. CafePress offers millions of personalized gifts where you can make your own custom Christmas ornaments and even personalized holiday photo cards!

Next, using a $100 Visa that I won from The Happy Runner, I settled on the Skirt Sports Lotta Breeze Capris. I don't want to retire my skirts for the season just because the weather is turning cooler. Plus I really could use a second pair of capris. I can't wait until they arrive so that I can test them out. Just hope I chose the correct size. I ordered through Zappos, just in case I didn't. Return shipping will be free if needed.

Had some extra leftover after that purchase and dedicated it to a pair of Dirty Girl Gaiters. Even though I'm just getting my feet wet (so to speak) with trail running at the moment, I'm beginning to understand how these could be useful. Somehow ever rock, stick, burr seems to find it's way into my shoes at the moment. Again, still awaiting the package arrival.

That's it for my shopping spree. Now I wait for the goods to arrive. Happy Monday! Have a wonderful week everyone!


  1. Be sure to post how you like the gaiters - they are next on my must-buy list!

  2. Ha! I'm afraid to look at the gaiters online at work.

    Congrats on all the wins!

  3. Why is CafePress contacting you people and I haven't been contacted? Hmmmm? I want a free bottle too!
    Cute capris, btw. ;)

  4. Hi Lisa,
    This post makes me want to get my shopping on:) Have fun with the new running loot!

  5. OOOH! sounds such fun - make sure we get photos!

  6. Yay for free shopping! Can't wait to see your loot!

  7. I've been looking at those gaiters as I too am embarking on some trail running this fall.

    Love Cafe Press. Been thinking of opening a 'shop' on there and designing some tri/runner designs..(one of many things on my to do list).

  8. Man what a haul! Things on my running list: new capris and a new ear warmer.

  9. I'm jealous of your great buys! I've been thinking of buying a running skirt as well. Can't wait to read the reviews!
