No, I didn't accidentally paste this picture in upside down, this is a normal day on the slopes for freestyle skier, Jenn Heil. Jenn has won the world cup four times, won a gold medal for freestyle skiing at the 2006 Torino Olympics and we are looking to her to bring home another gold at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, impressive, yes?! Not being a sporty girl myself I am always in awe of people who can do the kinds of things she can, so I was thrilled to find out that one of my fave beauty lines, Marcelle has launched a "Cheer for Jenn" website. What's in it for you, you ask? Well other then the obvious joy and satisfaction you will get from supporting a female Olympic athlete, there are prizes, lots of prizes. The coolest being a ski day in Banff with Jenn (I would end up falling, knocking her down and ruining her ski career, so fingers crossed I don't win that one) and 12 other secondary prizes from some of her sponsors including Birks and Oakley. And if that's not enough, every week until March 29th, 2010 with prizes including the Birks necklace (shown below, I want to win that!) and a $100 Marcelle gift basket! Feeling supportive now, aren't you?!! All you have to do is go here and send Jenn a cheer via your website(like I'm doing here), twitter, video or text, easy peasy!
And not only is this sporty girl cute as a button, (look at those teeth, she should be doing toothpaste ads!) she has a namesake line of jewelry at Birks too! Sterling silver and costing between $295 - $395. I like it, it's very sleek and modern looking. You can see and/or order it here.
You don't have to be an athlete to be an athletic supporter (sorry, couldn't resist) so do your bit and Cheer For Jenn!
