Columbia: Explore the Outdoors

If you've tried Columbia before, then you know what high quality products they offer. This was my first time experiencing this company and I'm sold. I love their quality, fit, feel and style.

We Believe
Achieving a 70-year history of industry leading outdoor apparel and product takes passion, and an understanding of people who love the Greater Outdoors as much as we do. That’s why, from cutting edge Titanium pieces, to our innovative heritage in Bugaboo, our jackets, pants, fleece, boots & shoes are all tested tough so you can enjoy the outdoors longer.



This company sent me the most amazing boys snow jacket. If you're looking for snow gear for the colder months, check out what Columbia has to offer. We took a trip to the snow once we received this and it performed wonderfully. My son was kept warm and dry.

This was by far the best snow jacket we've experienced to date. It looks great, has a ton of style and my son loved the way it felt. It was thick enough to keep him warm, yet he was able to move and play with ease.

Check out all of their boys jackets.



Whooo Weeee it's been raining cats and dogs around here! We have another week of wet weather ahead of us. Thank goodness for the Rainy Day Poncho. This has really been helpful this rainy season.

My daughter loves how easy it is to put on over her jacket. It's roomy enough to wear over a shirt or a coat. This features an attached hood, two snaps at the neck and a snap on either side of the arm openings.

Get this parka in pale mint (shown), purple frost and nico - sizes toddler, little girls and girls. All in with a fun seashell print.

FEATURES:
  • Fabric: 100% nylon Hydroplus 3000™
  • Omni-Shield® advanced repellency
  • Waterproof and critically seam sealed
  • Attached storm hood
  • Imported
Head on over to Columbia to see their fabulous selection for men, women and kids. They offer a wonderful footwear collection as well as accessories. Click here to shop by activity. Be sure to check out their outlet for unbelievable prices!

Affordable Scarves: $25 Gift Certificate Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Erica G #26!

I love scarves and I think they can really complete an outfit during the chilly months. I'm really enjoying the Stephanie Mohair Shawl from Affordable Scarves. I received this in black and I find I wear it a lot. I love the solid color and pretty scallop edge detail. This works as a scarf or shawl as it's light enough in weight to wear in a variety of ways.

It comes in black, blue, brown and mustard yellow. Here is a photo of the blue so you can really see how versatile it can be compared to the black photo shown above. Fold it in half or wear it wide!

Check out the latest trend, their circle/infinity scarves and the timeline of the history of scarves. Very interesting...

Saige Nicole's Baby and Toddler Boutique: Personalized Bling Shirt Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Leonard Family #62!

We all love a little bling around here! When I saw this Girl's Personalized Bling Shirt from Saige Nicole's Baby and Toddler Boutique, I about died. I LOVED IT in the photo and I love it in person. It's so posh!

I chose this style in a black shirt for my daughter with the same pink crystal color you see pictured. It's dynamite. The initial is nice and big and the crystals really sparkle. The pink against the black is just adorable. Get this in 6 different colors!

Details:
  • Available in cotton lap tee onesie with snap crotch or classic tee
  • Customize the color of the shirt and crystals

Now this isn't all....I loved so many of their awesome tee styles. Their Peace, Love, (insert name here) tee is darling as is so many! You have to go see for yourself.

And to top it off from head to toe, their Baby Girl Sheer Organza Bling Hair Bow is so sweet. My daughter is in Kindergarten and she looks adorable with this bow on. This bow isn't just for babies. It also works great when pulling bangs or stray hairs out of the way. I prefer smaller, daintier bows on my little girl so this is perfect. The big, poofy bows just don't do it for me.

We received one in black and it's beautiful.

One lucky reader will receive a gorgeous personalized bling shirt!

MANDATORY ENTRY: To enter this giveaway you must visit their website and tell me how you would personalize your tee - shirt color, crystal color.

If not completed, your additional entries will be disqualified from winning.

Fresh Organics: Pomegranate Fig Hydrating Lotion and Mountain Sage Cleanser Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ sohamolina #30!

Fresh Organics is dedicated to producing high quality skin care products for the whole family. We use certified organic and natural ingredients, minimally processed to retain their therapeutic effect. We stringently avoid using any chemicals that could be potentially harmful to you or the environment.We also distribute products that are essential for living green and living well. In all our choices, we make sure that you are getting the best possible deal and our eco system is not compromised by the manufacturing process. We hope you and your family will try our products and spread the good word about Fresh Organics.


Hydrating Lotion - Pomegranate Fig

Our luxurious, pomegranate fig, hydrating lotion is light, nourishing and quickly absorbed. It combines the anti-oxidant benefits of organic white tea and pomegranate with rich emollient jojoba and evening primrose oils. Topically applied white tea helps to protect the skin from free radical damage which causes symptoms of aging. Jojoba is very similar to the natural oil our skin produces and is easily absorbed to replenish moisture and regenerate tired skin. Ideal for dry or sun damaged skin to restore youthful hydration and resilience. Use daily to see outstanding results.

14.2 oz Pump Bottle

Ingredients: aqueous infusion of certified organic white tea, certified organic aloe vera, certified organic green tea oil, certified organic evening primrose oil, certified organic jojoba oil, vegetable glycerin, glyceryl stearate (plant derived), stearic acid (vegetable fat), certified organic bees wax, Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol), Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), lecithin, Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), grapefruit seed extract, pomegranate extract, fig extract, botanical fragrance, glucose oxidase (natural preservative), lactoperoxidase (natural preservative).

What Makes This Different:
Most commercial lotions are made primarily from synthetic petroleum oils which clog pores, decrease the skin's ability to eliminate toxins and can cause dry skin by disrupting the body's natural moisturizing system. We use only organic and natural vegetable oils that provide powerful moisturizing protection and are safe to use every day. Our Super Hydrating Lotion is also free of artificial fragrances and color, that often contain hormone disrupting pthalates, and we use a very safe preservative system that contains no Parabens, formaldehyde or other suspected carcinogens.

Cleanse All - Mountain Sage

Cleanse-all does what it says - effectively and naturally. Now you can shampoo your hair and cleanse your face and body with the same enzyme active cleanser. This refreshing all-in-one formula cleans without drying or stripping away natural oils like most detergent based formulas. It won't leave a soapy residue or irritate even the most sensitive skin. Cleanse-All is also designed to balance oil production and revitalize your skin and scalp. Our unique blend of lemon, eucalyptus and sage essential oils eliminates body odor and leaves you feeling fresh and tingly clean all day.

14.2 oz Pump Bottle

Ingredients: certified organic white tea hydrosol, certified organic jojoba oil, certified organic sunflower seed oil, glycerin, glyceryl stearate, isopropyl palmitate, stearic acid, stearyl alcohol, certified organic bees wax, d-alpha tocopherol (vitamin E), ceteareth 20, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), dimethicone, lecithin, carbomer, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), certified organic grapefruit seed extract, sodium hydroxymeythlglycinate, sage oil, eucalyptus oil, certified organic lemon oil, lemon grass oil.

How this is different:
Almost all commercial washes and shampoos contain some variation of Sodium Lauryl or Laureth Sulfate, which can cause permanent eye damage (even without getting in eyes) and can also penetrate the skin to affect systemic tissues and cause damage to the immune system. Our Cleanse All Shampoo/Wash contains no variation of SLS but utilizes more expensive and gentler cleansing agents. It is also free of artificial fragrances, color and petroleum bi-products and uses a very safe preservative system that contains no Parabens, formaldehyde or other suspected carcinogens.

One lucky winner will win these two products!

Hush Puppies: An American Classic

Hush Puppies truly is an American Classic! When I think of casual comfort, I think of this company and the cute dog of course. We adore the shoes they sent my way for this review. They're truly top-notch and feel really great on the feet.

I received the Guise in black. These clogs are really something else. I love the lightweight sole, beautiful full leather upper and wool fleece lining. These are like having your slippers on! Just slide your feet in to the warm comfort and you're off. These are terrific shoes.

Right now these are sold out on the Hush Puppies website, but you can get them at zappos.com. They're currently on sale, too!

The Endurance boot from Hush Puppies are great. This all-weather boot is comfortable and waterproof. Wear these out in wet conditions and your feet will stay protected. They feature a gel-heel pad for extra comfort. These aren't stiff and clunky. I love that about these boots. These are also on sale right now!

Sperry Top-Sider: A passion for the sea

In 1935 Paul Sperry invented the world's first and most enduring boat shoe. Where all other footwear brands have laid claim to every inch of terra firma, from the highest snowcapped peaks to the lowest desert valley, from baseball diamonds to basketball courts, Sperry Top-Sider has flourished by helping all who love the water master the world's final frontier... the oceans, lakes and streams of Planet Earth.

Surprisingly, the Sperry Top-Sider story begins with a cocker spaniel named Prince. On a raw winter day in New England when avid sailor and hobbyist inventor Paul Sperry let out his dog for its daily exercise he noticed that Prince was remarkably stable, even at a full run on the snow covered, icy crust.


Sperry Top-Sider has always lived up to its classic good looks and high quality craftsmanship. This brand is right up there with the best of them. Their boat shoes are fantastic. I was fortunate enough to receive two styles to review from this classy company.

The first was their Men's Billfish 3-Eye Boat Shoe in off-white. Four other colors are available. These are gorgeous. We love the creamy ivory color and overall styling. The durable leather is fully stain and water resistant. They feature air mesh panels on the side to keep the feet cool and comfortable. With the shock absorbing EVA heel cup and molden EVA cushion, these are ready for all-day wear with full wet/dry traction.



The Men's Gold Cup Billfish 3-Eye Boat Shoe from their Gold Cup Collection sure is the creme de la creme of boat shoes! They feature genuine handsewn construction for the ultimate in comfort. These come in four different colors. The one you see picutred above is tan beige.

Features Include:

  • Stain and Water Resistant Leather for Durable and Lasting Wear
  • 360° Lacing System™ with 18K Gold Plated Eyelets provides a Secure Fit and Will Not
  • Corrode Under Extreme Conditions
  • Air-Mesh Upper Panels Offer Cool, Breathable Comfort Around the Foot
  • Lined with Genuine Deerskin for Plush, Ultra Soft Comfort Around the Foot
  • Full Length, Triple Density Footbed Featuring Memory Foam to Conform to Foot for All Day Comfort
  • Polyurethane Cushion Midsole Construction for Classic Styling with Unexpected Comfort and Flexibility
  • Exclusive Vibram™ Non-Marking Rubber Outsole with Wave-Siping™ for Ultimate Wet/Dry Traction

Head on over to Sperry Top-Sider to see all of their shoes for men, women and kids.
