Back to School with LAMO Footwear

School is almost here and I am ready to update my look for the season! As a very busy mom of three active boys, I am used to being on my toes. So, when I think about updating my wardrobe, I am looking for function, fashion and comfort. Shoes are one of the first things I look for when I shop for a seasonal wardrobe.

This year I found the perfect shoe for back to school. No matter where life takes us, to school, to the beach, the mall, a ball game or on a picnic, the Piper in Peach from Lamo Footwear will carry me there and keep me comfortable. I love that these are completely cute and will pair perfectly with so many of my outfits!

The Piper in Peach is a slip on sneaker. It is easy to get on or off, and these are so comfortable to wear. They offer the ideal amount of support and are great for walking, or even chasing after boys. The shoes are washable as an added bonus to keep them looking great all year long. Knowing my shoes can be washed when needed is important to me because life with  boys can get adventurous!

Retailing at under $33 this is a great shoe to add to your collection for summer.  If peach isn’t your favorite color, you can browse the selection of Piper styles, there are 8 fantastic colors to choose from. I know I will be adding a few more colors before the season gets underway.

If you are looking for an affordable yet stylish pair of sneakers for school or just to wear, I would highly recommend Lamo’s Piper. I have been totally impressed with the fit, the look and the comfort of this pair of shoes and I know you will be too!

The Naipo Neck & Shoulder Massager with Heat

With the holidays comes some stress. From staying on budget to accomplishing everything on your to-do list, it is easy to get overwhelmed and maybe a little tense. When given the opportunity to review a few Napio massagers, I knew this was perfect timing and just what I needed to relax a little and keep the holidays super jolly! 

The Naipo Shiatsu Kneading Massager Neck & Shoulder Massager with Heat is just what Santa’s helper needs to unwind after a long day of Merry Making. This is a super relaxing way to relieve tension in your neck and shoulder area. Retailing at under $60 this is truly a gift that will keep on giving! The Christmas Shoulder Massager wraps around your shoulders to massage away aches, pains, and stiffness. I love that it gives a deep massage while being remarkably quiet and that it is made with leather. It heats up and mimics an amazing, relaxing hug.

The Naipo Massager is one of my favorite gift ideas for the special guys in my life. It wraps them in a warm hug as it heats between 96 and 104 degrees while offering a deep massage to melt his pains, aches, tensions, and stiff shoulders. Made with PU leather, this is a handsome massager that will be well received by any guy on your shopping list. Retailing at under $60 this is a must have relaxation tool in my opinion.

I was very pleased with both of the Napio shoulder massagers and loved how easy they were to use and how great the results of the shiatsu massage were. I would highly recommend this brand for holiday shopping and beyond.

Mini+Me Matching Shirts for Mom and Son

I am a fan of buying clothes that match with my little boy, Clay. I came across Mini + Me and loved their line of clothes. You can find clothes for mom and me, daddy and me, and more. I picked out matching shirts for Clay and I that say, Choose Joy. What I liked is I could get a 3t size for him, and then a size I needed and they looked exactly alike, except one is black and the other is white.

 

I thought the Choose Joy theme would be fun for this spring and summer when we are out enjoying our days. I try to live each day to the fullest and having a shirt that shows that means a lot. I love that we match, and Clay can wear this even when I am not wearing mine and look adorable as can be.

The fit on the women’s shirt is a tighter fit than a classic t-shirt. It seems to be pretty true to size, and I didn’t have any trouble with it. The shirt does offer a little stretch, as does the little toddler size. Clay is between 2t and 3t size, so I went ahead and ordered a 3t. It was a little big but I know he will grow into it. I would rather have a little bit big than too small. I was impressed with the quality and for the price of two shirts, it is very reasonable.

If you like to match or want your whole family to match, you might consider shopping at Mini + Me. They have a great line of clothes to fit your needs. I am happy with what we got, and I would shop with them again in the future. I think it might be fun to get a dad and me outfit for Father’s Day which is coming up soon!

Get Ready for Rain with Sloggers Rain Boots

Stride by Sloggers

As the weather turns cooler, there is a lot more mud to contend with. While I appreciate the change of seasons, I do not enjoy frequent changes of footwear or slacks due to water and mud splashing on me on my way to work, or to run errands, or meet with a friend!

 

This fall, my outfits are protected from even the biggest of puddles thanks to these stylish 14” rain boots from Sloggers. I love the durable yet comfortable fit these rain boots offer. They are comfy to walk in for a minute, a mile, or an entire day!

 

This year, part of my plan to avoid the cold and flu season includes keeping my feet dry. Sure there are a lot of winter boots on the market, but they are not always stylish enough to wear to work or out on the town. I keep this pair of Sloggers rain boots on hand so that when slush and puddles appear I can slip on a boot that always gets compliments.

sloggers

I have Stride by Sloggers black and white polka dots rain boots and I think they are adorable! There are so many great styles and prints that you are going to find a few pairs that you love!

 

Retailing at about $30 Sloggers are a great option for keeping your feet dry in wet weather. They might even inspire you to let the kid in you loose for a while, after all, mud puddles are meant to be jumped in, and when you have a pair of Sloggers on your feet, there is no reason not to indulge!

 

Sloggers make a great gift idea for anyone on your shopping list this holiday season! They are stylish, affordable and durable.
