Look! A bike helmet with an ever-so-subtle flower pattern.
Sometimes a girl just has to take things into her own hands--especially when she's been wearing a hand-me-down helmet (it was better than nothing) previously owned by one of her kids. A helmet which developed severe strap failure due to old age. And if her hands just happen to hold a gift certificate, all the better.
REI Gift Certificate: Free (to me, anyway)
Giro Skyla "Ice Blue": $40
Peace of mind: Priceless
