Runner’s Guide: Kiss-a-Belle Boutique

run kiss

Disney races are all about tutus these days!  And that’s why I’m thrilled to bring you a great tutu seller on Etsy, Kiss-a-Belle Boutique.  She has some super cute ones that are available in her shop right now, but she’s also willing to create any Disney tutu that you want!  So if there’s a character you want to see represented in a tutu, send her a message and she will make something for you.

For this review I was sent a Snow White inspired tutu.  And when I opened the box and saw it, I immediately fell in love with.  So much so that I’m now strongly considering a Snow White costume for a future Disney race – she was not on the initial list of the many Disney characters I want to run as (I’m doing Alice in Wonderland this October, and for February I was deciding between Anna, Esmeralda, Elsa, and Vanellope).  I’m planning to do the Princess Half Marathon and the 5k in February, so now I’m thinking Snow White will definitely be my costume for one of those!

Runner’s Guide: Foxy Baby

IMG_0773

T-shirts are very important to runners – not just to find good ones to run in, but also to show off your accomplishments!  Sure, you can get the free t-shirts they usually give you during a race, but if you really want to wear your pride with style then consider an Etsy shop like Foxy Baby.  She has some absolutely gorgeous rhinestone running shirt iron-on transfers.

For this review I received a shirt with two of the transfers (front and back).  The iron-on that was on the front of the shirt is really gorgeous.  It’s very detailed, with a ton of rhinestones to make it super sparkly 🙂  It has a tiara with 19.3 on it (to represent the Glass Slipper Challenge), and the words “Run like a Princess.”  I really like the balance of colors.  While most of the iron-on is white (which usually shows up the best for pictures), it also has blue and pink, which really livens it up a bit.

Giveaway! Runner’s Guide: Lucky Number Tutu

lucky giveaway

Have you signed up for the Marvel Avengers Half Marathon in Disneyland, or do you hope to someday?  Lucky Number Tutu has a number of awesome superhero costumes that would be perfect for this race.  Or, if you’re doing another Disney race, she has plenty of other Disney inspired costumes.  (Please excuse my sweaty, post-run picture):

One of the highlights of her shop that makes it a little different than some of the others is that she doesn’t offer just tutus.  A lot of her outfits are tutu/tank top sets, so you’ve got a one stop shop where you can basically get a complete matching outfit for a race.  And the tank tops are just as cute as the tutus!

100th post! And an exciting announcement

images

Today marks a milestone for the Disney in your Day blog – this is the 100th post!  It’s pretty exciting, and the blog has come a long way in less than a year.  I’m always looking for ways to make it better and very open to suggestions, so if there’s anything you want to see please let me know!

In honor of 100 posts, I wanted to do something exciting for my readers.  So I figured it was the perfect time to announce the new project I’ve been working on!  During October and November the Disney Etsy Holiday gift guide was a big hit.  And now, I have another guide I’ve been working on:

The Disney Running Gear Guide.

This guide will feature tons of stuff for Run Disney fans: running skirts, tutus, shirts, jewelry, medal holders, and lots more!  There will be plenty of reviews, but I know the exciting part for you all is that we will be featuring a number of giveaways too!  Even if you’re not a runner there may still be things you’re interested in.  Or perhaps the chance to win some of these amazing items will be the encouragement you need to start running – Disney in the place to do it!  We currently have over 10 giveaways in the works!

I’m hoping to get the guide up by mid-April, and then I will be featuring reviews and giveaways throughout April, May, and June.  I’m so excited for this and I hope you are too!

Run Disney outfit: Princess Belle

For me, one of the most exciting parts of running the Enchanted 10k was getting to plan out my costume!   I love costumes of any sort but especially Disney ones.  I didn’t want to do anything super elaborate since I did have to run in it.  And since it was my first Disney race, and a Princess one at that, I knew I had to pick my absolute favorite Princess: Belle.  So if you’re looking for ideas for an easy Belle costume, here’s what I did!

belle running sleevesI have to admit that with the awful weather we’ve had lately, I haven’t been running nearly as much as I should – especially with the Enchanted 10k creeping up on me in February!  But if there’s anything to get me motivated, it’s thinking about my costume that I’m going to wear!  I’m going as my favorite princess, Belle, from Beauty and the Beast.  And one of the components of my running outfit is some arm sleeves from Etsy shop Groovy Baby Action Gear.
