So I'm doing a post on 5-minute makeup and the makeup I wear every day. Of course while I was shooting the video, I completely forgot I was trying to keep it to 5 minutes and it ended up being 7 minutes long.

With eight fun character cases to choose from the VRUM ($49.99)  is a 3-in-1 children's product.  You can … [Read more...]

We all use our cell phones to tell the time, but over the years I've seen and eyed up a lot of watches - watches not just for the function of telling time but the fashion accessory that they've become with recent trends. So I was asked to do a post with Pulsar … [Read more...]

Right around the time that soccer season started this fall, a friend posted about the Sport Brella ($19.99, Amazon).

We've really gotten into Halloween the last  couple of years around our house.   The kids just love it and I swear I go just as crazy with the decorations this time of year as I do for Christmas, even more so maybe ever since I did a campaign with Kmart for Halloween and we really stocked up on goodies.  Last year we had bloody chains and zombie … [Read more...]

My favorite pair of Frye boots that I wear all the time are 50% off on Shoes.com!  They are these, the Women's Frye Jane Strappy and they are normally $400 but are on sale for $199.95!  I may have to order them in Suede.... very tempted.  Would it be crazy to own two pairs of these? ;-) Other Frye boots are on sale too up to 50% off! … [Read more...]
