Keep Calm and Olympic On

Hellooo interwebs! As you may or may not have read, I've been offline for some time. Don't worry I haven't joined a comune or anything, still surfing the net as much as anyone. Actually probably more than most. But as my own contributions have been focused elsewhere, I felt the need to reboot the good ol' CRC. So here we go!

My Olympic ring nails!
As most of you know, the 2012 Summer Olympics just wrapped up in London. I like to consider myself quite the Olymp-fanatic. Olympifan? Either way I'm OLYMPSESSED and the Games have always been a big deal for me. I still remember copycatting the the Magnificent Seven U.S. women's gymnastics team in the summer of '96. And the Winter Games are just as awesome if not awesome-r.

Needless to say I was all about London 2012. Not only for my love of Olympiads but having been to London and generally fascinated in all things Brit. I loved seeing one of my favorite places on display for the world. Not only was Great Britain on display, but their athletes had their best games history. Winning 29 gold medals, Team GB frequented the top of the stand showing off, in my opinion, the coolest, most stylish Olympic uniforms ever.

Worry not, I still root for Team USA!

Upon further investigation of these awesome athletic frocks I found out they were designed by none other than Stella McCartney. I won't go into Miss McCartney too much, but let me just say her designs are to die for. It's fitting that she's the mastermind behind Team GB's killer gear. And the solidifying excuse I needed to get me some!

After a long night of scouring the Internet, and after I realized none of the GB garb was sold in the U.S., I came across a killer deal at JD Sports' web site. Cheap shipping, on sale items and a free bag with your purchase! Since my budget is tight I went with the Team GB headband instead of a shirt or jacket which were both pricey. I did however find a great London 2012 official logo shirt, complete with union jack design! Best part about it? It all came from across the pond to my front door in a week, just in time for the last gold medal finals of the games.
