Sometimes I absolutely *nail it* when it comes to punny titles for blog post, but earlier this morning, I had to rate myself 2/5 stars. It was something about Happy Trails(hoes). “Happy trails” makes it sound like I’m going away, but if anything, I am officially in the off season for work, so I’ve got time to reclaim all the happy and fun parts of life, like training regularly (holy crap the Queens 10K is 25 days away), consistently creating content, and champagne brunches next to the pool.

I walked away and returned to my laptop after about 10 minutes. It then looked like I’m wishing you all a happy Trail Hoe Day. I was about to leave it, but once I saw the return of Pistachio (OGs will know how much I freaked out over that CRB in 2015), I tried to turn it into a trail mix joke. Failed at that too. I give up.

5 Faves & a Dud: lululemon’s 5/23/23 Upload

Favorite #1: Water-Repellent Stretch Tennis Jacket in Hot Heat

I’ve been fairly well-behaved on the jacket front lately. This one would look beyond cute with… I don’t know… everything? For $168 I think I’m going to try to hold out and see if it makes WMTM. Maldives Green and Blue Chill are already marked down to $119. Reviews are promising, and I’ve historically had good luck with lululemon’s water-repellent gear.

Favorite #2: Swiftly Tech Long-Sleeve Shirt 2.0 in Kelly Green

I haven’t been into a lululemon in over a month, so I have no idea how different Kelly Green is from Emerald Ice and Maldives Green, but I do know that I don’t have any of those colors in a Swifty LS soooo… *add to cart anyway*

Favorite #3: Hotty Hot High-Rise Lined Short 4″ in Kelly Green

Let’s go, monochrome moment! Given the previous pick, is it too much? You’d tell me if it were too much. Right?

TBH I don’t know why I’ve been gravitating toward Hotty Hots lately. Perhaps they’ve got a little more room than Speed Ups do? What would really be the dream? The Track That Short 5″ in Kelly Green, but I’m not sure I’ve got the patience to hold out for them.

Favorite #4: Align High-Neck Tank Top in Lip Gloss

I’ve admittedly been GLOSSING over this color since picking up a couple pieces in April, just because new releases have been so saturated in this color. Whatever core piece you want in lip gloss, you pretty much have got it. Pickin’s are anything but slim. Respect is due for this cute piece.

Favorite #5: Ribbed Softstreme Slim-Fit Tank Dress in True Navy

Bet you thought I was going to choose the black one, didn’t you? HA! I can be fun and exciting. Sometimes. This has Cape Cod summer BBQ written all over it.

Grandma’s pajamas?

Blissfeel Trail: Meet the full lineup

Now that the Early Access period has concluded, we now have the full lineup of Blissfeel Trail Women’s Running Shoe. I hesitated to buy without seeing the other options, and I’m glad I waited.

The vast majority of my running is on the road, but I feel like it’s my duty as a runner and an internet rambler to give a pair a try. Vapor will get dirty. Black is too boring. Something about the purple I don’t love. I guess that means it’s baked clay or Faded Zap? I’m leaning toward the neon Oscar the Grouch vibes.

Everything Else That’s Caught My Eye…

No questions, no explanations, just pictures. Ok maybe some words. Lip gloss squad rolling deep per usual. The tennis skirt is funky and I like it.

Let me tell you about something dumb I did yesterday, to break up the rows of (clickable! shoppable!) photos.

I accidentally ingested a small amount of dishwasher soap.

How did this happen? I wanted a piece of chocolate.

In the cupboard, we had some previously unwrapped Hershey kisses in a Stasher bag from… baking Christmas cookies.

Psssh this is what preservatives were made for, I’m fine… right?

As soon as I ate one, my mouth immediately tasted like residue from soap spots in an airtight container for 5 months.

My GI system did not appreciate the chemical assault. For about 2h, a fart could not be trusted.

10/10 do not recommend.
