Pavepara Wings Arm-Warmers

A big thank you to Chance Poe, Pavepara Lead Designer at Pavepara, for letting me test the Wings Arm-Warmers.  Chance Poe has a love for wilderness, fitness, and fashion and a bigger story of integrity.  I first heard about Pavepara when they were featured on Runner's World facebook page a few weeks ago.  So glad I saw it!
The Wings Arm-warmers are made of 100% super-fine jersey merino....LOVE LOVE LOVE the quality  fabric and the thumb holes!!  They come in five colors, and are USA made.    I chose Deep Lake and the color looked even prettier in person.  It was hard to capture the actual color with my cell phone. 

I've had the chance to wear these 'Wings' Arm-warmers  for some light runs, with my tanks on a few warm days we've had in the last couple of weeks, and recently in my half marathon.   The Pavepara Wings are the best looking and best fitting arm-warmers I have ever worn!  My favorite feature about them are the thumb holes which adds extra style to them.  Wings feel  soft and smooth against my skin.  I love the length, and  they don't slide down my arms!  Why?  Because they were designed with a no-pinch cuff that will not pinch.  (See collage of the Wings turned inside out to view the inside of cuffs.). They can be worn over a fitted top, under a loose top or with a tank.  I wore them under a hooded sweatshirt  that had sleeves that were not as long as I liked them, so I wore my arm-warmers underneath and felt nice and warm and without having to keep pulling my sleeves down over my hands.  You can probably come up with other ways to wear yours.  If you do, send us a picture!

Other items from their line at include a shorter version of the Wings Arm-Warmers (fits just over the elbows),Talons Leg Warmers, Rings of Distinction (stackable sterling silver rings), Soar Poncho, Plume Scarf, and The Bill.  I just love the bird related names for these items!  
CARE INSTRUCTIONS: wash in cool water, eco-friendly soap, and air-dry.   Someone in my family accidentally dried my load of clothes that had my arm-warmers in them, but they still looked great.  The cuffs still had great shape and did not bunch up.  They looked just as good on as they did when I first wore them. 

Pavepara products are made in the USA.  2% of profits go to Bird Conservation. Pavepara is for the Birds!  

Thank you for taking the time to read my review and thank you, Pavepara!

RejuvahHealth Compression Socks Review by Brightlife Go

Special thanks to Brightlife Go for the opportunity to test and review their RejuvahHealth Compression Socks for healthy legs and feet!  They arrived quickly, well packed and in a very nice product box displaying the actual socks through a window of product box with a size chart and product info on the back of box. Whether you're running, working out, sitting or standing long, traveling, at the office, lounging, etc., they are sure to give you style and comfort. 


These awesome socks are healthy, helping to prevent pain, swelling, and fatigue.  They come in sizes S-XL. The style is Chevron/Everyday Opaque and come in slate or ivory They are perfect for women or men.  

They have a 15-20 mmHg, which means minor ankle and leg swelling, and tired aching legs.  These socks have a graduated compression meaning they are strongest at the ankle and gradually less above and you feel it when you slide them on.  They have cushioning which feels awesome!  The color I'm wearing in the picture is Slate.  They look great with shorts, casual or running skirts, dresses, slacks, etc.  I love that the compression socks have a wide toe box, allowing wiggle room for your toes.  I do own a couple pair of other socks that squeeze my toes together.  Your toes should not feel cramped!  I also love the fact that the socks are knee high.  I have a couple of others that aren't quite tall and I would find myself pulling just to try and stretch them to my knees, which was causing less room at the toe area and by end the of my race they've crawled down.

So, a great socks with lots of great qualities about them AND affordable...$29.99,  and I can wear them with a variety of clothing styles--Wootwoot!
  Brightlife Go also carry ankle, calf, knee high, leggings, panty hose and thigh high socks/hosiery and some of the other brands they carry include CEP, Zensah, 2XU, to name a few.
