Shinesty Stay Weird and Shine On

You’ve heard of Ugly Christmas Sweaters but have you heard of Ugly Christmas Sweater Suits and Dresses? Okay what about matching ones for the whole family? Shinesty offers them in various Holiday patterns in ugly Christmas sweater suits, ugly Christmas blazers, ugly Christmas dresses, ugly Hanukkah sweaters and suits. Shinesty sent my family a set in the Navy Nordic print. Although we requested sizes that we think would fit us the best, it might need some alterations. I thought the price point was reasonable. My husband was like, “Wow, these are ugly.” LOL I got him to at least try them on for this photoshoot. I thought they were weird but … READ MORE

prAna Sustainable Clothing Movement – Why Organic Cotton Matters

This post is written by me for prAna. All opinions are my own. It’s a gorgeous morning in Newport Beach, California. It was a little chilly in the morning so I brought out my new fall gear from prAna. Did you know that they only use Organic Cotton? Before prAna, I didn’t even know what that means. prAna cares about where their cotton comes from, because they not only care about the environment, they care about the farmers and their makers. Organic cotton is not only better for the environment in so many ways, the farmers are not exposed to harmful pesticides and chemicals, but the cotton also drinks less … READ MORE

Flip Flops and Southern California go together. What’s not to love about sandals?

prAna New Spring Active Wear, Everywhere – Workout Then Errands

I am loving my prAna pieces from their new Spring line. It is super comfortable, and stylish enough to wear while running errands. I am sure I am not the only one that love athleisure wear. I wore this the other day, was in it most of the day, and didn’t want to take them off – I grabbed coffee with a friend, dropped off children, and wore it to my doctor’s appointment. Most of the time, I can’t wear my yoga clothes out, because they’re either not stylish or I don’t want to smell all day. The Ostara Top that I’m wearing in Coal is made with organic cotton, … READ MORE

Pair Up Back-to-School Program at JCPenney August 1-15

This month, we’re all gearing up for Back-To-School, and I’m working on a game plan so I don’t get anxieties this year. For example, I will try to avoid crowds by shopping early in the season and in the mornings. I’m already finding some good deals at the mall. This year I am “Pairing Up” with JCPenney! I like collaborating with JCPenney, because not only do I find affordable pieces and they have a great selection of licensed tees that we love, every year they roll out a program to help children in need. This year for two weeks (8/1 through 8/15), for every pack of socks or underwear sold, JCPenney will “Pair Up” and donate a pack to the Y to give to kids in need up to 750,000. What a great cause!
