That Tall Girl


Free Chapstick!

Yes, you heard it right, free chapstick. Like name brand stuff, folks. On sunday I was looking through that Kansas City Star and flipping through the coupon books, I totally found a rebate for shimmer or naturals chapstick. Heck yes.

I need some chapstick (feel free to send me lotion too, mom… and some more brownies if you feel like it) because it’s starting to get cold here. We’re talking in the 40’s. Oh, no. Cold means snow, and snow means loss of toes frumpy winter coats. Last winter I tried to count how many events of snow we had (more like days it snowed) and I lost count after 25.

I guess now would be the time to break out into more product placement joyfulness. Nike makes some fantabulous thermal gear. It actually keeps you warm- w/o going overboard like a winter coat might do when put into the mix with your morning run.

I suggest some tights and a long sleeve shirt in the same material. When it starts getting even colder you might want to think about adding a thermal headband and mittens (not gloves!!). As for your shoes, Yaktrax work wonders when it’s icy outside. It’s kinda like chains… but for your shoes. They might be a bit funny to run in at first, but you’ll totally get the hang of it (if you like to run when it’s that cold outside).

Now, you might say to yourself, “Man, I look crazy!” but you don’t. Especially if you start adding more layers on top of you spandex suit. Try wearing a T-shirt and shorts over your thermal gear.

If you followed the links I gave, you might see $$$ surrounding your head. In that case, make a run over to the nearest Marshalls, T.J. Maxx, Ross, etc. to get the good stuff before anyone else can get their grimy little hands on it. Seriously though, just check it out and be warm this winter
