Affordable Swimwear | Sets Under $20

Hello, babes! Happy 2019! I don't know about you, but I am super excited for 2019. I'm finally living in DC full-time, but still just a drive away from my family (which I love), I've made some amazing friends up here, I have a great job, Vince and I finally get to see each other every day, and I have some really exciting trips planned for 2019!

While I'm excited for 2019, I'm not going to lie, it's been a slow start. I love the fresh start to a new year, but getting back into a routine can be challenging (especially after having almost 2 weeks off of work). One way I'm powering through January is knowing that I'm going on VACATION in February!! If you have been around for a little bit, you know that we went to Disney last year for the Disney Princess Half Marathon (you can find my posts here & here). This year my mom and sister are running the 5K on Friday, the 10K on Saturday, and the Half Marathon on Sunday. I will be joining them for the 10K and Half Marathon (aka the Glass Slipper Challenge).

It's been chilly in DC so I am definitely looking forward to the hopefully warm Florida weather. We will be in Florida for a few extra days, so I am hoping to take advantage of our hotel's pools and catch some Vitamin D.

I am obsessed with these affordable suits! And the best part is that they are under $20 each! I will definitely be ordering a few of these for our trip next month.

PRO71 Yoga Mat: Really any fitness girl in your life would love a new yoga mat, even if you don't practice yoga you know that stretching is extremely important. This yoga mat is SO cute!!

Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve Crew: I have this top in black and I am obsessed. It is so great for running when it is colder outside. They also have this top available in a short sleeve and tank. They are my favorite workout tops. (I wore the tank when I ran the Malibu Half Marathon & plan on wearing it again for the Disney Princess Half Marathon)

InvisiBobble Hair Ties: These are my go-to hair elastics when it comes to working out! These would also make a great stocking stuffer.

Baller Hat: Cute hats like this one from Lululemon are a great gift option for the fitness guru girl in your life!

Garmin Forerunner 35: I just got this Garmin and I am OBSESSED!! I wear it for all of my runs as well as when I take a spin class on our Peloton. It tracks so much and even tracks your sleep. It can be connected to your phone so it alerts you when you get a text or a call, etc. This is really a great option for any active person in your life!

Powerbeats3: My headphones that I wear when running. They're the best!

Outdoor Voices Women's Tech Set: Who doesn't love a good workout set? This OV set is a great gift idea and is less than $100!

Stay Hot Keep Cold Bottle: This bottle from Lululemon is a great gift since it keeps your cold drinks cold, and your hot drinks hot.

Zella Live In Leggings: These are a no-brainer. I literally live in these leggings all fall and winter. Any girl on your holiday list would love a pair of these.
