#searsStyle #NYFW Blogger Brunch

It is that time of year again- Fashion Week! It is so much fun seeing all the new styles and watching what the designers will come up with next. I had the pleasure of attending the SearsStyle Blogger Brunch, and got up close and personal with the latest styles from Sears.

Some people don’t think about Sears when it comes to shopping for clothes, but they are missing out. You can find tons of great brands and sizes, from infant, to kids, Jr.s, Womens, Mens, and Plus Size all in one place. Easy peasy one stop shopping. Then you can head on over to the other departments, and get what you need for your home. Love the convenience factor.

My Little Man and I hopped on over to the brunch just after his Kindergarten orientation. He was one of 3 dudes in the room, LOL.

Tatyana Vs The SwimSuit

My friend Tatyana spent the summer seeking out the perfect bathing suit- and I think she has finally found it. Read on to see why she loves this suit so much- and why it may be perfect for you, too! We have very different body types, and I think it is good to see how different shapes and cuts can benefit different women. Take it away, Tatyana!
Can I just tell you how much I love my A.N.A. bathing suit? I was happy to know that the A.N.A. line comes in various styles from tankini, bandini and a two piece. The A.N.A. line also has some great colors to suit every woman’s taste. I was happy to know that this line also has accessories like shorts and cover-ups to go with their bathing suit.

It has pieces to mix and match as well to allow flexibility in swim wear. My one piece, chocolate colored swimsuit fits like it was made for me. The silhouette it creates would never let you know that I was a bit overweight. From a slight distance, I look like a very curvy woman, and close up I still look like curvy without the “extras”. The ruching in the front hides the little bulge with ease. The straps are wide and do not hurt the shoulders or leave any ugly red marks. The little skirt in the front and the back allows me to hide my little bathing suit lines on the bottom.

Win a GK Hair Prize Pack!

One of little girls’ issues related to her disability is her fragile skin which makes daily bathing and hair washing problematic. Unfortunately, for her she also carries the family curse of a tendency toward oily hair…..Blah!

Although dry shampoo seems a viable alternative to the conventional method of washing hair, they typically leave behind a a nasty white powdery residue……..not cute at all …….since we only do cute cute…….well…you know, just scratch them off the list. The big “to do” in these spraypoo products was when they began to come in a variety of colors that matched your hair. This innovation seemed groundbreaking at the time…. yeah except for the flaky colored powder all over your clothes…again the uncute factor….ewwwww.

We’ve also tried caps and foams….we won’t even get into the ugly details on these diva deterrents……..We’ve just been left to struggle through, not so gracefully I might add.

So when another spraypoo came along I wasn’t bursting with excitement and truth be told I almost took a pass, but I felt a glimmer of hope while perusing through their website…….. Invisible Dry Spray Shampoo ….. hummm? Invisible sounds good and so does dry…it held a bit of promise.

The results? GK Dry Shampooactually works!

We purposely skipped Lil girls’ scheduled fluff me up and sprayed her up instead.

We lifted her hair and sprayed at the roots…..it was clear! Yay for clear! As directed we sprayed and then waited a minute to brush. Then…Ta da… shiny and new!

Hanging Out with @ZylieTheBear in Central Park at #OasisDayCamps (AND #Win a Bear!)

Me and my Little spent the morning in Central Park with the makers of Zylie the Bear and Oasis Day Camp (where my son attended camp for a month this summer). The kids had a great time playing together, with lots of activities planned and of course- meeting and learning about the guest of honor- Zylie!

Zylie is a bear after my own heart- she likes to travel 🙂 Zylie the Bear, an innovative new teddy bear line that is all about fashion and adventure, has a silly little brother, likes to learn, visits a museum, and has a Panda friend from China named Shen. In her first book, which was read in parts to the kids, we learn about Zylie and what makes her so much fun. The kids, both boys and girls alike, had a great time hearing her story and playing with the bears. Then, all the “little campers” had a morning of recreational and creative activities that Oasis has to offers – including athletics, exploration and a special “travel & adventure” scrapbooking activity focusing on summer adventures including fun-time at Central Park, at home and even around the world, like Zylie!
