Ornaments With Love: The BEST Personalized Christmas Ornaments

Product provided from Ornaments With Love.  All opinions are my own.
Do you have a Christmas ornament tradition?  Each year we get a new ornament that symbolizes something special in our kids' lives.  My son is on the track team and my daughter started playing the clarinet this year.  These are two important activities that they love to do.  
I instantly knew that Ornaments With Love would have ornaments that were music and sports related. They never fail to impress me with their vast selection from occupations to hobbies.


Take a look at these darling personalized ornaments we received.  What detail in the Personalized Clarinet Christmas Ornament.  It looks just like the real thing!  The Personalized Track Christmas Ornament is nicely detailed as well with great color.  I am always pleased with their careful personalization every year.  This company does a phenomenal job with hand lettering.
Ornaments With Love has become an important part of our family tradition during the holidays.  If you're looking to start a new tradition with your family, why not check them out today to find your perfect ornament!

HalloweenCostumes.com: Teen Queen of Hearts Costume

Product provided from HalloweenCostumes.com.  All opinions are my own.


Halloween is just around the corner and you know what that means....costumes, candy and fun!

Last year my daughter wore this super cute Child Tigress Hoodie Costume that has received a lot of popularity from HalloweenCostumes.com.  This year, they sent us the Teen Queen of Hearts Costume and it's even better than the photo.

Talk about cute.  This Alice in Wonderland costume includes a black, velour dress made from polyester. The dress features an attached stand-up collar that is lined in red and made from foam to keep its shape.  A white satin-like insert with red trim lines the torso with pretty little red sequin hearts.  The sleeves are lined with elastic to maintain their puffy look.  The shimmery red skirt has a sheer black overlay with red hearts.

Included are white leggings with red hearts down the side.  They are made from a spandex and nylon blend.  The matching white glovelettes with red hearts and crown headband provide the finishing touches to this darling look.  The plastic gold crown is stuffed with red netting and has two small elastic loops for easy bobby pinning to hold the crown in place should you need them.


If you really want to take this look to the next level, check out this magnificent piece.  The Mini Queen of Hearts Crown made from shiny gold metal features fine, embossed trim around the edges, small gold bearings on each point of the crown and hearts with red jewels.  Inside you will find small rings if you need to add an elastic band.  The crown circumference is 15 1/2" and the points measure 4 1/2" tall.  This crown looks fabulous with the Teen Queen of Hearts Costume and add the perfect punch of shine and sass.

If your child loves Alice in Wonderland, this costume is a must-have this year.  Not only is it attractive, the dress is also nicely constructed.  We are always happy with the customer service we receive from HalloweenCostumes.com.  Shipping was quick and we highly recommend this company for all of your Halloween costume needs.  They offer an enormous variety for everyone in the family!

Hey Dude Riva Shoes

Product provided from Hey Dude.  All opinions are my own.



Hey Dude Riva in Beige/Seagreen – The LIGHTEST and MOST comfortable shoes you’ll ever wear! I got these shoes specifically for my trip to Destin, Florida where I stayed at a resort for work (and yes, there was actual work involved). Immediately after working hours, I threw the Hey Dude Rivas on. We visited the nearby pier and the beach and the beige and seagreen color felt right at home. At times, I had to remind myself I even had shoes on. They’re that light!


The Riva is the lightest shoe in Hey Dude’s collection at 4.5 ounces. These would be the lightest pair of footwear in anyone’s collection; they’re even lighter than my flip flops! The upper is constructed of stone-washed canvas accented with lighter thread stitching on the toe box. Wrap-around laces are cloth with reinforced eyelets giving it that “boat shoe” styling. The outsole is made of Dupont flex-fold technology and is complemented by a cushioned insole for the ultimate in comfort.  Besides the Beige/Seagreen color the Riva comes in, other exciting combinations including Sage
Camo/Orange, Chocolate/Turquoise, Blue/Coral, Black, and Fluo Black.


Bottom Line: Want the most comfortable and lightest boat-style shoes in awesome color combinations? Visit Hey Dude and check out the Riva that fits your personality.

Wilsons Leather: Black leather jackets for the Fall

Product received from Wilsons Leather.  All opinions are my own.


Every woman should have a leather jacket in their fall wardrobe.  It's a chic statement piece that will never go out of style and looks great with a variety of looks.  Pair it with jeans and a tee or dress it up with a skirt and heels.  You really can't go wrong with such a classic fashion staple.

The Andrew Marc Center Exposed Zip Leather Scuba w/ Multi Stitching Jacket from Wilsons Leather is just perfect.  Buttery-soft genuine leather, stitched pattern accents, and stylish shoulder epaulets make this jacket stand out from the rest.  


The fit is ultra flattering and it feels like a million bucks.  Inside you will find 100% cotton lining on the body and 100% polyester lining in the sleeves.  There are two open front pockets and two horizontal zippered chest pockets.  The shoulder epaulets feature snaps and the stitched accents on the zippered placket and back waistband adds character.  If you're looking for a leather jacket that is high in quality with the perfect amount of edginess, this is the style for you.  Available in four colors - saddle, cognac, black and cherry.


Go behind the scenes of their 2014 Fall Fashion Shoot.


Here I've styled another awesome jacket from Wilsons for the fall.  The one pictured below is a wonderfully affordable option.  The Black Rivet Quilted Faux-Leather Faux-Leather Collarless Jacket is on sale for $89.99.  Also available in the color bone.  

Notice how great this jacket looks with a casual jeans and sweater look, to a dressed up feminine sweetheart look. 


I love the mixture of hard and soft.  Leather jackets look amazing with soft, flowy fabrics.  The pretty pink tulle skirt is the perfect pairing.


Head on over to Wilsons Leather to find the leather jacket that speaks to you.  As always, they have a fabulous assortment for men and women this fall.
