Thanks everyone for supporting my personal blog but this will be my last post. I've recently started a public blog called MaltaMama. Visit me there where I will blog about events, activities, style, parenting, and lots more. Thanks for the love- Colleen


Is it time to suit up yet?


I know you may cringe at the thought of purchasing a swimsuit in the dead of winter, but now is actually a great time! Once the spring/summer hits, you will almost always pay full price and most of the good suits are picked over. It's not like they take up a lot of room in your drawer, so go ahead and get yourself a swimsuit now so you'll save money and be ready to rock out in the summer, if it ever comes.

I checked out the Gap-owned Athleta and found that they have a super selection of sale swimsuits. Regularly priced at about $35-$65 per piece, there are some great styles on sale in the $15-$30 per piece range.

At $19 per piece, I will likely sport the Rio Riptide suit this summer shown here.

See you on the beach... after four freezing cold months!
