Run To Shoe Carnival for Athletic Shoe Savings

Disclosure- I received a gift card to facilitate this review.

Have you been to Shoe Carnival lately?  If not, now is the perfect time to go because in addition to their athletic shoe sale, they’re also running a Buy One Get One 1/2 Off.  It’s time to stock up.

If  you don’t know about Shoe Carnival, they are your one stop shoe store for Men, Women and Children, offering shoes for everyone at great prices, every day.  And, to make their deals even better, they have a Shoe Perks loyalty program.  With Shoe Perks, you get points just for singing up, points for purchases, and even some extra points on your birthday.  Those points turn into Rewards Cards good toward any purchase in the store or online.


I had a great time shopping for sneakers at Shoe Carnival.  There was so many brands from which to choose and I liked them all; so I tried them all on.  What better way to decide, right?

Holiday Outfits Made Easy with Kohl’s

I have very little in the way of fashion sense.  For this reason,  I try to keep it simple, all the time.  This time of year, I take more photos then usual, which is quite a lot.  I like to do our holiday cards with less posed, cornball “look what a perfect and happy family we are” photos and more real ones (because we are far from perfect- and I readily admit to that!)  I also like to take one nice family photo every year, where we are all looking at the camera at the same time, hopefully with our eyes open.  For this photo, I like us to look decent- and we loved our new shirts ordered just for the occasion from Kohl’s Holiday Collection.

This year, it was easy to look decent in our photos.  I shopped at Kohl’s, where the prices are affordable and the clothing will last as well- even on my husband.  My son wanted us all to wear blue for the photo (which worked out- I loved this Apt 9 crepe shirt), and he wanted us to all sit with Santa.  Why not, right?  We dressed in our new holiday clothes and headed over to Macy’s on Herald Square to check out the holiday window displays and visit Santa Claus.

Turns out, it would be a little harder then you would think to take photos with Santa.  He took the day off, which was sort of uncool since the employee we spoke to gave us his hours for the day, LOL.  But, we had a great time looking at the windows, visiting Santaland, and then took a walk over to FAO Schwarz as well.  Why not?  It’s Christmas time in the city, after all  🙂

#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.

We not only got the chance to see some of the latest from collections like Bongo and the new Kardashian likes, but we were also able to choose a pair of jeans we like, so we can be in the most [Read more…]

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.

It does not ride up when I went diving or swimming and it does not balloon like some other skirted bathing suits once you get in the water. After putting in on, I felt like stepped out of a 1930’s movie [Read more…]
