  On a recent trip to Florida, we were lucky enough to ride in style with a Cadillac SRX at our disposal for the week.  The boys proclaimed they wanted to trade in our minivan and get one of these cars and I have to say, I was tempted after using all of the perks that come along with the SRX! I've been wanting to downsize for awhile and I … [Read more...]

Having seen several people post on Facebook about the TOMS sale on Zulily today, I couldn't resist taking a peek.  TOMS are up to 40% off retail and you get free shipping when you spend $65 or more on TOMS, a great deal! Some of my favs include this Ash Canvas Wedge (sale price: $44.99) Those Red University Wedge Sandals (sale price: … [Read more...]

Seeing as I'm currently out of town, I knew I'd have to get creative with this week's Pinspiration post.  I was thinking that I'd try another fitness pin but then I remembered this pin - How to Create a Custom & Transparent Watermark in PicMonkey. I'm not gonna retype all of her instructions because I think she does a pretty fab job of doing … [Read more...]

Normally I'm pretty organized about what post I want to do on which day here on Mommies with Style.  But as I type this, it's Sunday afternoon and I'm looking out from our oceanfront hotel room at the Marriott on Marco Island in Florida and my mind is a big 'ol blank. It's been a brutal winter back home in Philly and I didn't realize just how … [Read more...]

If all goes as planned, by the time you reading this, I will be sitting on a beach in Florida.  I know, feel free to hate me!  Because if the weathermen are also right, there will be over a foot of snow on my driveway back in Philly when this posts as well. I'm writing this from home earlier in the week and I'm looking out at my snow filled back … [Read more...]

Their tagline is, These shoes will make you UNNATURALLY QUICK!  How is that possible that one running shoe … [Read more...]

I'm the Homeroom Mom for my son's 4th grade class.  Last week, we went and did some Valentine's Day bag decorations.  I had a ton of leftover stickers and ribbons. Then I saw this Pin on Pinterest.  It links to a Babble article that has 10 Crafts "for Toddlers," but I was particularly interested in this Accordion Folded Spring Flower Collage on … [Read more...]

A couple of samples came in the mail last month from UrbanHalo, a company that makes fun patterned headbands and accessories.  I immediately put them to use at the gym. I wear a headband every time I run or workout. I have lots of random stray hairs (no bangs) that I can't stand getting in my face so you'll never see me exercising without one. … [Read more...]

Our house is currently without power and last I checked, the temp was somewhere in the mid-50s and dropping quickly. We've been in the same house for 12 years and we've been lucky on the power outage front. Our neighborhood has only lost power once for a few days and that was during the summer when we were out of town. Every other time we've … [Read more...]
