BrylaneHome: Set of 10 Dust-Free Shoe Storage Boxes

Product provided from BrylaneHome.  All opinions are my own.

Now that the new year is almost here, I've been in a major organizing mood.  I'm proud to say that I've organized every single closet, drawer and cabinet in my entire home.  It feels sooo good, and I'm ready to start the new year off right!

One of our closets that needed to be organized was our entryway shoe closet.  Shoes were everywhere! I purchased a few hanging shoe racks for our everyday shoes, and received these great shoe boxes from BrylaneHome!  Their set of 10 dust-free shoe storage boxes are a great addition to our organized closet.

I placed all of my spring/summer shoes and some of my dressier shoes that don't get worn as much in these boxes.  They stack wonderfully for space-saving storage, and the lid snaps tight sealing out all dust and dirt.  These boxes will keep my shoes fresh and clean.  I love that they are clear so I can easily see which shoes are where.  This is really helpful!  It felt so good recycling their original boxes for these sleek clear boxes.

Use these boxes for your belts, craft supplies, accessories, scarves...the possibilities are endless!

I'm proud of my closet now and want to show it to everyone that comes over!  If you've been hit with the organizing bug too, you need to get your hands on some of these handy shoe storage boxes. 

Check out all of the amazing storage solutions from BrylaneHome!

Maui Jim: Wiki Wiki Sunglasses

Product provided by Maui Jim.  All opinions are my own.

Maui Jim Wiki Wiki Sunglasses- Stylish and Lightweight, this modified aviator frame is perfect for formal events or active casual events.  The design is an "updated" aviator in which the bottom portion of the lens and frame is flat in contrast to the rounded bottom design of aviator sunglasses.  You'll definitely stand out from the "me too" aviator wearing crowd with these sunglasses. 

What I love most about the Wiki Wiki's are its pure titanium frame making these sunglasses lightweight and comfortable.  Titanium also adds to its durability.  It's no secret that customers love the Wiki Wiki. Check out the reviews for yourself on their website.  5 out of 5 stars!

I had the Maui Jim Cliff House and I accidentally smashed the sunglasses with the back of a U-Haul's sliding door!  With a few adjustments to the temple, and unnoticeable scratches on the frame, they were as good as new!

The Wiki Wikis fits best on wearers with small to medium heads and facial features.  They are a superior choice for wind, sun, glare and UV protection as it covers the complete periphery of the eye.  A double bridge design allows for adjustability and non-slip silicone nose pads secure the sunglasses to the wearer's face. 

Eye - 59
Bridge - 17
Temple - 120
6-Base Curve

MauiGradient lenses features a darker coating at the top that gradually gets lighter moving down the lens.  PolarizedPlus2 technology eradicates 99% of glare and blocks 100% of harmful UV rays.  The lenses, frame, and hinge is specially treated to be saltwater safe for ultimate reliability regardless of where you choose to wear them.

The Maui Wiki Wiki comes in Gloss Black frame with Maui HT lenses, Gold frame with HCL Bronze lenses, and Silver frame with Neutral Grey lenses.  Also available in Prescription through an RX Retailer.  A nice quality hard Maui Jim case and cleaning cloth is included.

Bottom Line:  Need stylish, lightweight and durable sunglasses?  Check out Maui Jim to find your perfect pair!  It's no wonder this company is consistently top rated for men's and women's sunglasses. Find a store near you here.

Giveaway: SlideBelt of your choice from SlideBelts - 2 Winners!

Product provided from SlideBelts.  All opinions are my own.

SlideBelts - Simple. Stylish. Sliding. A perfect fit each time!  I wish I could have been introduced to SlideBelts sooner.  I would have saved money and prevented headaches trying to get the right fit!  I'm a bit obsessive when it comes to my belts - they either have to match the color of my shoes, the tips have to barely pass the first best loop... you get the point.

There's also an unwritten law from the style God's that you must ALWAYS use the middle-most hole, which is the third hole of the five, on your belt.  Unfortunately, we are mere humans and life happens. We gain/lose weight, our pants are different from each other, and sometimes we gorge ourselves at Christmas parties necessitating the adjustment of our belts to the outermost hole!  With SlideBelts, this is no longer an issue since there are no holes!

SlideBelts is Eastern European inspired in which an automatic buckle is used to adjust the belt.  Instead of holes, a row of notches or teeth are sewn on the back of the leather.  As you slide the leather through the buckle, a mechanism on the buckle catches onto the notches on the leather.  Once you have the perfect fit, simply stop sliding the leather through.  To undo or loosen the belt, simply pull on the releasing mechanism built into the buckle.  It's that simple!  Watch the video below to see it in action.

Available in premium full grain leather and numerous colors of leather belts and stylish buckles!  I specifically love the onyx, cognac, and chestnut colors of leather which I can pair with all the colors of shoes in my wardrobe.  

For those who want to add spice to their belts, other exciting colors offered are White, Yellow, Crimson Red, and many others.  

When it comes to buckles, I love their Original Black, Original Silver, and Classic Gunmetal.  Their leathers and low-profile buckles can be mixed and matched so you can use their buckles and leathers in any combination you wish!  Go casual or go dressy.  SlideBelts will work for any occasion.

Christmas is coming and SlideBelts make a great gift!  The leathers are capable of fitting a waist up to 50".  Once you receive your belt, there are instructions on how to make it fit perfectly for you.  I wear a size 32" waist pant and the instructions suggests cutting the leather at 34", which is conveniently marked on the back of the leather.  

This will allow you to have a perfect fitting belt even if you ever have to go two sizes up in pant size!  If you should make a mistake and cut the leather shorter than needed, SlideBelts offers free exchanges for all orders shipped within the U.S.  Now that's customer service!

Presentation at its finest.  Each belt came carefully placed in a nice gift box.  Perfect for gift giving.

Bottom Line: Need a stylish belt that fits perfectly each time?  Check out their beautiful website to find the right combination of leather and buckle that's perfect for your style and needs!  Share the experience of Simple. Stylish. Sliding.

Giveaway Time:  SlideBelts is giving 2 lucky readers the belt of their choice!  Create your one-of-a-kind look!
