Our family hit up our local Spirit Halloween shop last weekend.  In search of costumes for my boys, it wasn't long before I found myself in the adult section looking at goodies for me. I frozen at the end cap that held a huge amount of Doctor Who costume ideas!  I've recently gotten into the show thanks to my Netflix streaming addition and am … [Read more...]

$20 jeans, yes please! Almost all of the women's jeans are marked down to close to $20 (some less!) with this 40% off today-only sale. Kids and Dads too! My fav are these Rockstar Zip Ankle Jeans, $20! … [Read more...]

It's been awhile since my last Stitch Fix box.  In fact, it was July that I posted about Stitch Fix Box #3.  So far all of my boxes have been pretty decent; I have yet to keep an entire's box worth but always get a couple of pieces out of each shipment.  In fact, that Maxi Dress in box #3 ended up being a staple dress I wore a ton the rest of … [Read more...]

Is anyone out there playing the new Skylanders Trap Team yet?  It came out last week and I feel like I haven't been hearing as much buzz as I have in the past. We have yet to dive in.  My youngest (and the Skylanders guru in the house) turns 8 in early November so we always hold out  for his birthday to open up the latest version of the game. … [Read more...]

It was sometime over the summer that I noticed this new line of snack food at CVS.  I was actually up in Manhattan and had popped into the corner CVS for something-or-other that I forgot and I had been doing a campaign over the summer with CVS for Gold Emblem, their snack food line.  I noticed Gold Emblem Abound, and my attention was … [Read more...]

Last month, I posted about Cricket Magazine.  They had sent me some samples and receiving them really took me back!  I definitely have memories of flipping through Cricket when I was a kid in doctor's waiting rooms. This month, I'm excited to announce that I'll be working with Cricket for the next 3-months as a blogger ambassador for them. I'm … [Read more...]

For the can't-go-wrong purchase this holiday season, check out the Pin Up Girl Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Palette on Sephora.com.  It's a great price point of $42 (value of $110) and this is a nice little gift for pretty much anyone who appreciates or wears makeup.   It has some great neutral colors that are great through the fall … [Read more...]

This 50 Non-Candy Easter Basket Items post did well back in April so I thought I'd re-visit the concept for Halloween.  These days everyone seems to have some sort of restriction - gluten-free, allergies or whatever reason they may have for not eating candy.  And honestly, we don't have any restrictions but my boys get so much candy in their … [Read more...]

For the second week in a row, I'm featuring J. Jill clothes in Fashion Friday.  It just so happened that I'm doing two separate campaigns with them and they fell within a week!  Which was all sorts of fun because I got to style myself not once, but twice in some of their new fall looks.  So you get to hear about it again but I have some new … [Read more...]

Adorable, is all I can say about this latest line and the Baby Combo from Mabel's Labels.  We use Mabel's Labels on a daily basis in our house - everything my boys carry to school is labeled with something from Mabel's Labels, be it sweatshirts or school supplies.  I actually have been meaning to order some for myself because I find myself … [Read more...]
