Horny Toad Activewear: Cuba Libre Short Sleeve Shirt

Product provided from Horny Toad.  All opinions are my own.



Horny Toad Cuba Libre Short Sleeve Shirt – Spring is here! Here in beautiful Southern California the 
weather has already hit low 80 degrees. It is only get warmer from here, and it’s time to think about 
staying cool and hornytoad has great product offerings that will help you be stylish and comfortable. 
I’ve been wearing my hornytoad Cuba Libre shirt in the Bright Navy color and love the Gingham pattern. 


What sets this shirt apart from the rest is the fabric.  Sweat wicks away quickly unlike some shirt materials that hold on to moisture. Worn casually at a barbecue across town or business casual with khakis, this shirt can be worn in various settings.

Made of 98% organic cotton and 2% spandex the Cuba Libre has a hint of pucker that adds a subtle 
dimensional grid to the cool open weave. This results in a lightweight texture that floats over the skin keeping the wearer comfortable and forever eliminates the need to iron. This shirt is quality made with a full front button placket, patched on button-through chest pocket, back yoke and a rounded hem. You can wear the shirt untucked, but a shirttail hem allows the shirt to be tucked in if you choose to do so.


Available in bright navy, clove and silver sage.

Bottom Line - Want a stylish shirt that will keep you comfortable all day? The hornytoad Cuba Libre 
Short Sleeve shirt is highly recommended. Visit Horny Toad to see their vast collection of men and women's clothing. This spring and summer stay COOL, STYLISH, and COMFORTABLE!

Giveaway: BrylaneHome Set of 3 Extra Large Shoe Boxes

Product provided from Brylane Home.  All opinions are my own.



We love featuring BrylaneHome and all of their products that make life easier.  I recently received their Set of 3 Extra Large Shoe Boxes to review.  These have really come in handy now that I'm starting to swap my winter shoes for my fun spring sandals.

We use hanging shoe organizers and clear shoe boxes in our closet, but some of my boots are too tall for these spaces.  Thank goodness I have these great clear shoe boxes that are extra-large in size to accommodate my boots.  This set of boxes works great for men's and women's shoes.


What a wonderful addition to my organized shoe closet.  I love that the boxes are see-through and easy to assemble.  One side of the box features two ventilation holes and the other has a convenient handle.

Each box holds one pair of shoes and measures 24" H x 24" W x 14 1/2" D.

Evy's Tree: Unique Hoodies & Embellished Clothing

Product provided from Evy's Tree.  All opinions are my own.

I love getting dressed up, accessorizing and looking my best.  However, I'm all about wearing a comfortable hoodie when running around town or hanging out at home.  Most of the hoodies I own are plain and lack style. Isn't that what hoodies are all about...boring yet comfortable?!

I'm here to tell you that's not the case.  I now I have two hoodies that have rocked my world.  The hoodies from Evy's Tree are ah-mazing!  I am so pleased with their quality, materials and styles.  The detail...oh the little details...they're beautiful!

Their hoodies go like hot cakes so if you see one you like, snatch it up.  It won't be there for long!  I wear my hoodies everywhere....running errands, to the gym, to work, to school...they're just so chic and unique.  I'm a huge fan.


The Coral Simple is one of their most loved items that has been updated for spring.  Just look at that stunning color!  Its simple style is super flattering, and the added ruffles down the front sides of the zipper is an adorable addition.  Another added bonus is the elongated cuff with thumbholes.  This is one of my favorite features.  Due to the longer cuff, you can easily roll these sleeves up to 3/4 length when summer hits.


This track style jacket with no hood is made from their ultra soft, luxurious summer weight Peruvian cotton.  How I wish you could all feel this right now!  It feels so fantastic on my skin.  This truly is the perfect jacket for the spring.  You won't want to take it off.

Also available in lilac.


Made from imported 47.5% cotton, 47.5% model and 5% spandex.  Please see their size chart for more info.  If you're between sizes, they suggest sizing up.  I have both of the hoodies shown in a size medium.  The Coral Simple does fit snugger than The Eva Racer.


Here's another beauty.  The Eva Racer in cream is so feminine and sweet.  Their website says, the perfect solution for your cool summer night needs.  I couldn't agree more!  This hoodie features buttery soft lightweight fabric in heather grey with a hand cut chantilly lace front overlay.  


There's even matching lace lining in the hood.  Of course, this hoodie also features fun thumbholes and two front pockets.

Made from 97% rayon, 3% spandex.  Also available in black.


These hoodies would make wonderful Mother's Day gifts or a special gift for yourself.  With just one feel, you know they're high in quality and worth every penny.  I have never owned such luxurious and beautiful hoodies.  I can't wait to see what new styles and colors Evy's Tree comes out with next. Visit their website to see more of their styles for women and kids.

Discount Time:  Right now you can take 10% OFF any hoodie with the code FUNKY10.

Giveaway: Swiss Diamond Nonstick 10.25” Fry Pan - $98 Value

Product provided from Swiss Diamond.  All opinions are my own.


One of my kids' favorite things to eat for breakfast is eggs.  I've used nonstick pans in the past that truly weren't so nonstick, but now that I have my new Swiss Diamond 10.25" fry Pan, I look forward to cooking omelets, bacon, meat, sauces and more!

Swiss Diamond's unsurpassed nonstick performance means you don't have to cook with oil for a healthier lifestyle for your family.  Whether we use no oil or a little oil, we're definitely cooking healthier in my household.

Forget scrubbing and soaking.  Those days are gone!  The diamond reinforced patented coating ensures immediate release of food particles with just warm soapy water.  Just what busy moms want to hear!


This pan is a real beauty. It's wonderfully made and such high quality.  This is the pan I reach for day after day, and every household should own cookware from this award-winning company to see and experience the difference.

What's so special about their nonstick coating you ask?  It incorporates real diamonds. This helps the coating last longer, conduct heat better and release food more easily than coatings made with other materials.  Watch this video to see what makes Swiss Diamond different from the rest.


A helping handle located on the top of the lid pan makes two-handed tasks a cinch.  The rivet-free interior prevents yucky food build-up that can lead to bacteria growth.  

This pan is dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended.  You can use this pan on gas and electric stovetops and it is oven safe up to 500 degrees.  Also available with a heat-tempered glass lid.  If you need an induction version, check out their Induction Collection.  

Free shipping on all orders over $250.

Giveaway Time:  Swiss Diamond is giving one lucky reader a Nonstick 10.25" Fry Pan!  A $98 value! This is the best nonstick pan out on the market today.

Giveaway open to US only.

Ryders Eyewear: Strider PolarPhoto Sunglasses

Product provided by Ryders.  All opinions are my own.




Ryders Eyewear Strider PolarPhoto Sunglasses – The ULTIMATE sunglasses for the outdoor enthusiast!  The lenses darken and lighten automatically to suit overcast to sunny conditions.  I find these sunglasses to be invaluable especially when mountain biking.  I ride where there are various light conditions, from the sun shining directly on me and shady areas where tall trees block the sun.  I love how the lenses lighten automatically going through darker areas so I can concentrate on the trail and not fall off the side of the mountain.  In addition, the polarized lenses prevent glare from blinding me and keeping my field of vision clear ensuring my safety. 


I’ve had sunglasses with interchangeable lenses, but this task took away precious time from enjoying the activities I love (yes a couple of minutes is “precious”).  Also, with dirty hands, I worried I would scratch the lenses from replacing one to the other.  With Ryders’ new POLARIZED-PHOTOCHROMIC Technology, replacing lenses is a thing of the past!



You will be amazed at how much technology is packed into these sunglasses which retail for $129.99.  Polycarbonate lenses is the same material used in bulletproof glass making it shatterproof, offers 100% UV protection, optically correct eliminating distortion, and scratch-resistant coating.  Frame materials are durable, flexible, and light-weight resulting in a total weight of 26 grams.  Hydrophilic nose pads and temple tips securely grip your face preventing slippage even when your face is wet with sweat.  Talk about QUALITY and VALUE!  These two attributes rarely go hand in hand!


These Ryders Strider PolarPhoto sunglasses come in two colors: Black and Grey Frame with Grey Lenses and White with Red Frame with Grey Lenses.

Bottom Line – High Quality, Great Value and Performance!  For a retail price of $129.99, Ryders managed to pack lots of features and functions into their Strider PolarPhoto sunglasses and I wouldn’t hesitate to buy these in a heartbeat.  Check out Ryders to see their vast selection of sunglasses that will suit your particular activity.  Protect your eyes, you only have a pair!

Tsubo: Belton for Men

Product provided from Tsubo.  All opinions are my own.



Tsubo Belton Men's SlipOn Shoes  –  Classic looking loafers with a modern edge.  These aren’t your grandfather’s loafers, but they do belong in a hip stylish men’s wardrobe.  Looking from the top, admirers will see traditional styled loafers, but seen in any other angle onlookers will experience a modern flair.  Against the bourbon colored full grain leather upper are rubber outsoles in brick red, which give the shoes their cutting edge.


The Tsubo Beltons are very comfortable.  The slip-on cut uppers are designed with elastic gore vents for a secure fit.  A padded collar and premium leather footbed deliver maximum cushioning and comfort.  Insoles are single density PU foam footbed with leather lining and antimicrobial treatment.  These shoes are meant to be worn without socks, and the antimicrobial properties will keep your shoes smelling fresh.  Outsoles are made of rubber for flexibility and traction specifically for urban wear. 


Bottom Line:  Looking for loafers with a modern edge?  The Tsubo Belton is worth a look!  Not only do they look swell, they are very comfortable. Available in the colors bourbon (shown), black and desert sand. Visit Tsubo to view all of their other great styles to add to your wardrobe!
