Today is National Women’s Health and Fitness Day!


I know that when the weather gets chillier and the days get shorter, I sometimes struggle to keep my health and exercise routine. But what better day to decide to get out there than National Women’s Health & Fitness Day? Check out the tips below to get started. Plus, our merchants have all the gear and gadgets you need to actually be excited for exercise time!

1)      Walk! Grab some comfortable sneakers, like these durable, ultra-lightweight Nike sneakers, on sale for $109.99 and get moving! If the weather’s nice, walk instead of taking public transit. If you find your energy draining after lunch, walk around the office.

2)      Develop a routine. Get into a schedule, and stick to it!  I’ve always found that going to the gym right after work works for me, as there is less of a chance of losing motivation by making a pit stop at home. Try getting a gym bag like this Nike duffle bag from Macy’s, so you’ll have your gear with you during the day. It’s water repellent, sturdy, and can also be used for weekend trips.

3)      Inhale the fresh air. No matter how busy you are, spending even five minutes outside breathing in the fresh air can have amazingly beneficial effects on mind and body. With the air getting chillier, be sure you have a warm jacket, like this North Face women‘s thermoball jacket, which is available in an array of vibrant colors and has the warmth of 600 fill-down.

The weather may be chillier, but it’s great for exercising! So get out there, and be sure to shop through K12Rewards to get everything you need, and earn cash for your school, to boot!

If small accents here and there are more your style, Cost Plus World Market offers a dizzying collection of trinkets to provide style and warmth to your home and put a smile on your face, like the pumpkin casserole baker, with a festive autumnal design and sturdy handles for easy serving.

Staying Cool Out There! More Tips and Deals to Beat the Heat


The schools are out, the sun is hot, Fourth of July is just around the corner–summer is in full force! There are few things more relaxing in life than a warm sunny day with nothing to do, but in order to get the most out of your relaxation, be sure to stay healthy, hydrated, and protected. Below are more tips to help you relax comfortably this summer!

1)      It’s important to keep your skin moisturized and protected. In addition to sunscreen, check out Bath & Body Works for great deals on moisturizers, lotions, and creams in such delectable summer scents as Juniper Breeze and Caribbean Escape.  This rich, tropical Aruba coconut body lotion is only $5.50!

2)      Protect your eyes! If you have light eyes, like I do, then you know all too well the importance of a good pair of shades. Besides looking cool, sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful UV rays and make reading in the sun a lot more comfortable! Liven up your summer style with these bold Steve Madden print cat eye sunglasses from Nordstrom.

3)      Lastly, when outside, be sure to spend ample time in the shade. Make sure your garden has a shady area, and that you set up kid’s play areas in an area out of direct sunlight. This two-tier gazebo on sale from Sears is the perfect relief from a hot summer’s day! And with a privacy and insect screen, you can enjoy all the pleasures of sitting outside on a warm summer’s afternoon, with none of the discomfort.

Happy summer my friends! To end, I will leave you with these words from poet Emily Dickinson, celebrating the beauty of those warm summer nights that are gone before we have processed their arrival.

“To see the Summer Sky

Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie—

True Poems flee—“
