Dr. Scholl’s For Her High Heel Insoles (review and giveaway!)

CLOSED People who know me in real life, know that I have a love-hate relationship with high heels. I love love love how they look and I think most women look great in high heels, but gosh… they are so uncomfortable! I admire people who are able to wear high heels all day, because I sure can’t. I do wear heels, but usually in the evening. When I go out to dinner, to a party etc. Basically, when I know that I don’t have to be wearing them for all that long. Recently I was sent a pair of Dr....

Express is giving away 50 pairs of jeans!

My birthday has passed and Fall is on its way. Booooo! The only thing I like about Summer ending is the fact that I can go shopping for new clothes for Fall! The weather in the Midwest, where I live, is crazy. Extremely hot summers and very, very cold winters. I wear a lot of dresses in the summer time and then around September/October I switch to jeans. They’re comfy, they’re warm and you can easily combine them with anything! I haven’t bought new jeans in three years though… 🙁 I’ve heard people talking about Express jeans, but I’ve never...

My wish list on Bluefly.com

One of my favorite online stores to shop for designer outfits is Bluefly. This site sells designer clothes with lower price tags: 20% to 75% off retail prices. They offer apparel (women AND men), shoes, handbags and accessories from major labels like, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Marc Jacobs handbags. What I like is that the site always shows the product with the discounted Bluefly price and the regular retail price right above. This way you know that you’re getting a deal! (Or you’ll at least know the regular retail price!) And to be absolutely sure that you’re getting a...

Tips to keep warm in winter

When we first moved from California to Ohio, I was amazed about the weather. It was July when we first got here and the weather was amazing. It almost felt tropical! Temperatures between 30 and 40 degrees Celsius, long hot summer nights and no rain or draft whatsoever. This weather lasted for a couple of months, then Fall kicked in. I actually really enjoyed the Fall season. The humidity was gone, trees were showing off their pretty orange leaves and I enjoyed the Halloween decorations everywhere. Then, when it started snowing, I was actually pretty excited about it! It reminded...

Review: My Itty Bitty Bra

Today’s review is about a bra, an awesome bra. I know this isn’t one of my regular makeup or skincare product reviews, but I did want to write about this. I know that there are a lot of women out there who fit in the A and B cup size categories and who have given up on finding a bra that fits, let alone one that looks good, is comfortable and gives you actual cleavage. I used to be one of them… Itty Bitty Bra is a line of intimate apparel with accurate sizing and fit for petite and average...
