Denver Deal: Soybu, Starbucks, Sweet Tomatoes and More

For those of you who follow my blog posts with any kind of regularity – you would know that I like to work out (and I also kind of just like to dress like I work out – in my comfy yoga pants). I am super excited to go the Mamas Night Out at Soybu in Greenwood Village this coming Wednesday. I have been pouring over their website for a couple weeks now – trying to figure out exactly what I am going to get when I go. I just got an email that says there will be a discount for you too! Get 25% off on their Grand Opening on Wednesday. Plus, you don’t even have to feel bad if you can’t get to their new flagship store on Wednesday – because you can take advantage of the discount all week long online.
Free Days

Frontier Airlines Olympic Promotion
Since I’m thinking all about traveling and I’m a deals girl plus I love the Olympics, I LOVE the Frontier Airlines promotion. Frontier Airlines is offering a way for you to win, even if you’re not in Sochi! How many gold medals will USA win? We’re hoping for a lot and here’s why… when THEY win, YOU win. For each gold medal USA wins at the Winter Games, Frontier will match with a one percent promo code towards a future flight with Frontier. With up to 90 medal opportunities, you could win big! Sign up at Frontier’s Facebook page (Winter Games tab).
Sweet Tomatoes
One of my most favorite places to eat is Sweet Tomatoes. I love that my kids can help themselves to the giant salad bar as many times as they wish – and it will be fine with me. Kids eat free tomorrow (Tuesday) when you play their facebook page quiz – on what our President’s favorite foods were. Happy Presidents Day!
If you are a Starbucks drinker like I am (and my kids are) you might like their new promotion. Bring your receipt from your morning coffee to a Starbucks after 2 p.m and get a bakery item for just $1 as a special promotion for the addition of LaBoulange bakery treats, saving you almost $3 in some cases). Why, Hello Chocolate Croissant – I believe you’re calling my name.

When you purchase an entree and beverage at Smashburger you can also pick up your two for one coupon for lift tickets at Winter Park!

Product Review: BornFit Women’s Activewear – The Elyse Jacket

I recently had a chance** to try out the BornFit Fitness Elyse Jacket.

Details from their product page: This brand new BornFit women’s fitness jacket is cute enough to wear out shopping, but functional for your workout with moisture wicking, super soft, brushed polyester/spandex! This wrinkle resistant workout jacket is great for the woman on the go – it is a perfect jacket to wear while traveling. Comfy and versatile, this jacket welcomes cooler weather. Collar can be worn up or down, two hand pockets on each side and asymmetrical zipper – this women’s fitness jacket is one of a kind!  Price: $88

BornFit is “Apparel to Fit Your Active Mom Life,” and they carry maternity AND non-maternity items. I fall into that latter category. Almost all of the fitness activities I do are indoor and do not require winter active wear, but I’ve been looking for a nice coat to use when I’m running around. (Not literally running, mind you…the “running” I do is to the store, school, ballet, and playgroup outings.)

Regardless of where I run and how fast, I love this jacket! It’s light, but warm. It’s not bulky, and it’s so soft! It was so comfortable that I actually forgot I had it on, on more than one occasion. I love the detailing on the sleeve. The embroidery gives the jacket a fun, stylish flare. I love that there are two sets of pockets. There is one set of zippered pockets, perfect for keys, wallet, or a cell phone, BlackBerry, or iPhone, and there is a non-zippered pocket on top of those, so that there is space to keep your hands warm without losing any contents of the zippered pockets.

The jacket has an off-center zipper on the front, which gives the coat a unique look. I must admit, though, it took me a while to get the hang of fastening it. I loved the look of it, but getting my brain re-trained to zip an off-center zipper was pretty comical. It only took a couple of tries, and I was back on par with the other preschoolers learning to zip their jackets, with no one being the wiser.

So many people commented on this coat and wanted to know where I’d gotten it.  It’s sure to be a popular piece in your wardrobe, too.  So, if you’re looking for a stylish, fun, comfy coat for running. . .around town or otherwise. . .you should check out The Elyse Jacket by BornFit.

**I was not monetarily compensated for this review. I was given the jacket in exchange for an honest review.
