Jessica Women’s Leather Adjustable Cross Strap Sandal by Therafit – Giveaway

I have partnered with Therafit for this feature

Therafit has done it again and they keep getting better each season. For spring they have 10 new styles of comfort shoes to choose from. I am featuring the Jessica Women’s Leather Adjustable Cross Strap Sandal. With all the straps, not one of them bring discomfort or dig into the tops of my feet. The entire shoe is comfortable all the way around.

The shoe comes in blue or black and these are the blue pictured here. I love that is a sandal for spring and summer weather but can be worn when dresses up or down. They are great with a air of jeans or shorts and also just as great with a skirt for an evening out or day at church.

The straps are a stretched elastic band and as with Therafit shoes it also has contoured footbed, superior arch support, and deep heel-cups will stabilize and support your foot. They are available in whole sizes so you would order up for a half size. I wear an 8.5 typically and the 9 is a great fit! Visit Therafit New Arrivals to see all of the latest styles.

1 lucky reader will win a pair of the new Therafit Jessica Women’s Leather Adjustable Cross Strap Sandal. Open to US and ends on May 1, 2018. Enter below. Good luck!

My Cold Weather Skin Reactions Reduced with Seirus Innovations Products

I have partnered with Seirus for this feature

My Cold Weather Skin Reactions Reduced with Seirus Innovations ProductsPicMonkey Image

It began about 2 years ago. I would sit at my son’s soccer practice and shortly after feel welts on the bottom of my feet and then start itching my neck and arms. I would get these hives that were red and very itchy. I remember sitting in a chair on the sidelines one cold morning game just going nuts! My neck was so itchy and my hands were suddenly so red. It was cold and so uncomfortable. It began happening at practices and games all season. I knew at my upcoming physical appointment I would want to mention it.

My doctor appointment came and I told her my itchy welt stories. They always happen when outside and cold. They occur at my son’s sports events, washing the car and out in the yard. I was told it is Cold Urticaria. This condition is a skin reaction to cold that appears within minutes after cold exposure. Affected skin develops reddish, itchy welts (hives).

I still suffer today! I am physically uncomfortable in my own skin on cold days and nights I have to be outdoors. I no longer sit on the field for any of my son’s outdoor practices as I sit in the car with the heat on. My husband washes my car on cooler days for me. If the house is too cold (for my skin) I am in layers to avoid turning the heat too far up. I refuse to sit out his games so I just suffer through it. I suffer through evening walks with my husband and our puppy!

Now I have some relief! I am seriously more grateful than anyone can imagine for Seirus products! Their all-weather, heatwave and heat touch products are a lifesaver if I have to go outside in the cold. Their snow products keep me just warm enough to avoid the itchy redness. Essentially every area of my body where skin is exposed will break out!

I use the DynaMax Fleece-Lined Neck-Up and it literally keeps all the redness and hives away for an entire practice! Another product of theirs I have is the Heatwave Socks. When my skin is reacting to cold, even with shoes and standard socks I get very itchy welts on the bottom of my feet! These socks got me through flag football clinics for him the other day and I had no welts. I bought myself some Seirus gloves online last spring and they worked so well I knew their other lines would work great and I am so relieved now from head to toe.

Maybe you don’t suffer with Cold Urticaria. Maybe you love snow sports or just hate the cold. Seirus will help you out from heatwave to Gore-Tex and extreme weather wear. You’ll want to see all that they offer at Seirus.com.

Pants That Work to Slim Your Body – Slim-Sation

I have partnered with Slim-sation by Multiples for this feature

As a busy Mom taking it all on most of us can honestly say that asking for help is a hard thing. For me its about control and it is faster if I just do it. That’s the mentality I hold for some chores or help with my grocery bags and air flights with bags. Where there are situations I just don’t always accept help that doesn’t mean I never need help. When times get hectic and I fall off the exercise bandwagon I always need help with clothes that will fit right and give me a slim look. Wearing pants like the Slim-sation jeans from Multiples helps my waist appear slim and allows me to actually feel comfortable in my jeans all day long.

FashionFigureComfort

Fashion. Figure. Comfort. Those 3 words describe the pants you can choose from that are made with a tummy control panel that slims your waist. I have the Women’s Boyfriend Crop jeans.

jeans that slim

I love jeans that have style in the back like on or near the pockets. The front has faux pockets so no bulging and there are actual pockets in the back. Although you pull these jeans on they have a faux zip fly so no one can tell you have a waist slimming band on these jeans.

Te Fit technology used in the pants include

  • Flexible Tummy Control Panel
  • Wrinkle Resistant
  • Strong Fabric
  • No Muffin Top
  • Retains Shape

See all of the styles at Slim-sation!

4 Holiday Gifts For Mom

I have partnered with the following brands for this holiday gifts feature

4 Gift Ideas for Mom

Holiday Gifts for Mom

Some of the best gifts I get are those simple everyday products that I need to reach for but can feel guilty spending the budget on. Whether it is a comfy pair of lounge pants to end my day or a wine set to relax with, it is the simple gifts that get the best use. Consider these 4 holiday gifts ideas from American Made, Philosophy, Joico and Thoughtfully.

American Made gifts

Are you wondering why you would wrap Mom a pair of jogger pants? I’ll tell you why. Once Christmas is over and we have begun to put gifts away from the kids and family and have clean up to do, we look at our gifts and see those brand new, comfy pants. We grab those up, rip off the tags and put on those brand new joggers and we always feel great and relaxed in them. I can’t speak for every Mom, but I love looking in my room after a holiday and seeing brand new beauty products and comfy clothes sitting there waiting to be used. These are the French Terry Jogger Pants from American Made.

Joico Gifts

What is the first thing you do with a new shampoo or conditioner bottle in your hand? Do you open it to smell also? That is what I always do. Not that shampoo should be judged by its aroma, but a clean smelling shampoo is so refreshing at those 10 (I mean 2 or 3) minutes of shower time the kids give us. I love Joico and now there are gift sets available that gets Mom the Shampoo, Conditioner and other Joico products all in one gift box. JC Penney and Amazon have some available.

Thoughtfully Gifts

Thoughtfully. What a better name to give to these gift sets that are stories in a box. From gifts for men, women, wine lovers, readers and more these sets are beautifully packaged. Take this Cheers to Art set for wine lovers, it comes with wine glasses, canvas, paints, candies and more. Excellent holiday gifts under $50 packed with love and fine things for Mom. If you have to mail your gift this is a great way to shop. They will send it packaged beautifully for her.

If you love getting bath and body holiday gifts but the aisles and aisles of brands and product overwhelm you, I can help. Philosophy can be found in many retailers and online and is a great brand! You really can’t go wrong with their products. Trust me! Mom will have a moment to herself and look over on her bathroom counter to lotions, bath wash and wipes calling her name for a moment of pampering. She will open them and use them. A shower gel and bubble bath called Pajamas? How can you go wrong?
