Nordstrom is running a fantastic promotion on Clinique products right now: Buy any participating item $32 or more, snag a FREE Clinique bonus gift bag. Nordstrom always offers free shipping and free returns, although this promo is available in-store as well.

Your gift will include:

  • Turnaround Overnight Radiance Moisturizer (0.5 oz.)
  • Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ (1 oz.)
  • Take the Day Off Makeup Remover (1.7 oz.)
  • Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm in Mega Melon (0.04 oz.)

  • High Impact Mascara in Black (0.14 oz.)

_9945703

There are several items right around $32 that would work for this promotion.  Clinique makes such high quality products that last and actually work.  Their Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion is the only thing I will use on my face.  I have tried several other products (super cheap and not cheap at all) and it is the all-around best bet for me.  Very moisturizing, but not in the least bit greasy.  I always try and wait for one of their free gift promos to purchase the lotion, just to stretch my dollars a little further.

I received the Moisture Surge CC Cream for Christmas and I’ve been LOVING it.  I’m all about reducing the amount of time I have to spend making myself look like a human in the morning (read: lazy and fairly uninspired).  CC Cream color corrects, brightens dullness, diminishes redness, hydrates AND provides sun protection.  This cream is priced at $37 and would automatically qualify for the gift!

_6628429

This Clinique ‘Acne Solutions’ Clear Skin System is just $37 + FREE shipping and contains a 4-week supply of all three steps.  Perfect way to try out these products AND get yourself an awesome bonus.

Click here to order and see all the participating items.  Your free gift will be automatically added to your cart with a qualifying purchase. Limit one person and while supplies last.  These do sell out, don’t wait!

What is your favorite Clinique product?

We all know that tracking stuff helps keep us accountable, whether it is our daily activity or our food intake or our calories burned.  It’s like before and after pictures, you will never remember how far you have come if you don’t have documented proof.  This is especially true in CrossFit as there are so many lifts and workouts and times and bench marks and progressions to keep track of, but all modes of fitness beg to be tracked.  Whether you do P90X or Zumba or HIIT training, tracking your progress keeps you accountable.

There are probably 8,547 different types of journals out there, but I really want to feature the one I have been using.  JournalMENU sent me a fantastic customized CrossFit journal earlier this year and I’ve been LOVING it.  They have several different options for beginners, intermediate, kids, teens and more and you can customize just about anything you want with the design.  I chose the intermediate journal and it is already pre-printed for tracking of top lifts and benchmarks (mile run, 5k, different rowing distances), the traditional Girl workouts (Diane, Fran, Annie, etc), tons of Hero WODs (Murph, Small, Abbate, etc) and lots of space to enter in your daily WODs.

Untitled

While these journals are traditionally geared towards CrossFit, they also cover obstacle course racing, military special ops, running, nutrition challenge and student planner journals.  Customizing is easy, the price is right and the company is great to work with!

CrossFit Gift Guide

I recently featured my custom fitness journal from JournalMENU in The Ultimate CrossFit Gift Guide!  Don’t miss out on all my favorite apparel and accessory items for being a beast at the gym.

What do I win?

BONUS ENTRIES

This will give you a total of 6 possible entries.  Please make sure your email address is correct in your comment as this is the only method I have to contact you.

Tropical Traditions is offering FREE ground shipping on all orders through Monday January 26th at 9 PM PST!  They carry some really amazing products, including high quality organic coconut oil, organic flours, baking products, palm shortening, vinegars and oils and much, much more.

My favorite product is their Organic Raw Honey.  We use it in place of most sweeteners and it has an amazing flavor.  Raw organic honey has not been heated above the temperature of the hive and has not been processed in any way.  It contains beneficial live yeasts and enzymes, which are usually removed in conventional honey due to high heat and processing.  We use it to sweeten homemade coffee creamer, homemade barbecue sauce, baked goods, homemade salad dressing and more.

You can pick up a 17.6-ounce glass jar for just $10.49 right now, discounted from $20.99.  This is the lowest I EVER see this go!  FREE shipping is applied with orders of $19 or more, so if you buy two jars of honey (or other products), shipping won’t cost a thing.

1515805_443496409116213_2132068055_n

In the picture above, you can see what a typical order looks like for our family.  On occasion, we add in organic coconut chips or unsweetened coconut or some of their great organic spices.

If you have been going back and forth on trying out Amazon Prime, now is the time to do it!  Today only, January 24th, Amazon is offering a one-year membership to Prime for just $72 (regularly $99).  I have never seen Prime go on sale, this is exciting!

We have had a Prime membership for 4 years now and have been really pleased.  A few of the benefits:

  • FREE 2-day shipping on tons of items sitewide
  • No minimum order size
  • Borrow a Kindle book for free each month from the Lending Library
  • Unlimited instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows with Amazon Instant Video
  • Unlimited, ad-free access to over a million songs
  • Free unlimited photo storage in Amazon Cloud Drive

If you are any kind of online shopper, I guarantee you will use this to pieces.  Not only does Amazon have historically lower prices than most retail stores, but having Prime gives you the chance to take care of last minute gifts that are guaranteed to arrive in time.  I can’t even count the number of times having a gift show up on my doorstep in two days has saved me from dragging my kids around town looking for something that may or may not be cheaper.

You also have the option (on most orders) to choose economy shipping over 2-day Prime shipping and receive a $1 credit in your Amazon Instant Video account.  If I am ordering an item I don’t need right away, I use this option and bank my credits so we can rent movies that aren’t free through Prime.

One of our very favorite features of the Prime membership is the unlimited movie/TV streaming!  We have watched countless documentaries, older movie favorites and even newer movies like The Hunger Games for FREE.  We stream through our Roku box and Amazon Fire TV Stick, but you can also use your PS3, Xbox 360 and more.  If getting your budget in shape is one of your goals for 2015, this would be a great way to try an alternative to cable TV.

Click here to sign up.  This offer is only valid through today, January 24th.

Alright, here’s the scoop.  This promo is just for members new to Amazon Prime, but I’ve figured out a trick.  If you gift YOURSELF a membership, you can snag this low price and extend your membership for another year!  You will pay for your membership today, but if you have the money in the bank, it’s worth it for the extra savings.

Add an Amazon Prime gift membership to your cart, enter your email address under ‘Recipient’s Email’ and choose the date you would like it to go live.  My current membership expires on November 22nd of this year, so that’s the date I added.  I will just pop a reminder onto my calendar to go in on that day and update my membership.

The only other step you will need to take is to make sure your current membership is canceled on or before the day your gift membership will be active, so you don’t get charged twice.  You can easily do this through your account or by calling customer service.

Click here to “gift” yourself a membership.

Why we want our children to be sports fans #GoHawks{image credit}

I was going to write an entirely different post this week.  About those that come out of the woodwork to be negative, about why the more successful you are as a team or an individual, the more passionate haters you will have, about how we all need to be friends and get along and stop being bullies.  Damn it.

But I’ve been immersing myself in the joy and elation and firstheartbreakthanLOVE videos and stories to come out of the NFC Championship and my heart is bursting to share something else with you.

I have always been involved with sports.  My family watched sporting events as an afterthought when I was little, not as an obsession.  They were always there, just more of an amusing sideshow than the main event.  But I PLAYED sports.  My parents came to watch me play sports.  My days were filled with practices and uniforms and “Did I forget my kneepads” and traveling and rivalries and tears and exhaustion and elation.

DSCN0767

Then I met my husband.  Anything that can remotely be called a sport is his passion.  Even if it’s not his favorite sport, he absorbs every ounce of information he can about it. He loves competition.  He loves the nuances and details and history of sports.  Being married to this, it’s hard not to be affected.  There is rarely a moment when some sporting event or highlight or draft show or pre-game or post-game is not on in our house.  We spent our honeymoon at two different outrageously historical ball parks.  We spent our first anniversary at the Mariners spring training in Arizona.  It’s not enough for me to know what team someone plays for, so I might as well know where they started, what farm team brought them up and how many times they’ve been traded.

We’ve always known that we wanted our kids to love sports, whether they played them or not.  There’s just something magical about being a fan, win or lose, good or bad, heartbreak or elation.  I’m not sure I could ever articulate WHY we felt this was so important, besides the fact that WE love them and think everyone else should to.

marshawn-lynch-doug-baldwin-ricardo-lockette-nfl-nfc-championship-green-bay-packers-seattle-seahawks-850x560{image credit}

Fast forward to today. The NFC Championship between the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers.  This game embodied everything that ever was and ever will be again in a sporting match-up.  This was a game that we will be talking about 30 years from now, rehashing where we were and who we were with and how we felt.
