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.

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?

Did You Know? Running Facts to Motivate You

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Mizuno. The opinions and text are all mine.

Did You Know? Running Facts to Motivate You

Today we are talking about running. The Holidays are here and many of you may be thinking about New Year Resolutions or after overeating you may be thinking about starting to run or even walk for a healthier start to 2018. I searched many resources along with facts I remember in my own head and I want to share the top ones that stick out to me. Motivation is key to success and hopefully these running facts will make you smile or make you more curious to take an extra step closer to starting a healthier routine.

  • Remember this name, Fauja Singh. He is the oldest marathon runner at 100 years old. He finished a marathon in Toronto in 8 hours, 25 minutes, 16 seconds.
  • I have seen in several readings that running 12-18 miles a week can leaves runners with a stronger immune system and are less prone to colds
  • Over 1 billion pairs of running shoes are sold worldwide every year
  • Like stair climbing? In the Great Wall of China Marathon, runners have to climb 5,164 steps (that’s not for me)
  • South African runner Zola Bud won two IAAF World Cross Country titles while running barefoot
  • The average exercise life of a running shoe is about 400 miles
  • The inside will wear faster then the outside in almost every running shoe (Don’t look at a car tire to judge the heath of a car. It’s the engine inside that can have the most problems) such as in the shoes lining or support system

What running shoe am I wearing now? My latest shoe is the Mizuno Wave Rider 21 running shoe. To me, a shoe that I have to ‘break in’ before I feel comfort is not the best running shoe. Like these Mizuno Wave Rider 21 shoes, they should support from the first time you put them on and that should feel comfortable to you.

Before I even stood up and took my first step in these shoes they were comfortable. I have the High Rise Greystone, but they come in 4 total colors – Patriot Blue-White, Baja Blue-Dazzling Blue and Athena-Siver. The redesigned Wave technology offers softer cushioning. Mizuno’s Dynamotion Fit features a breakthrough in “Triple Zone” engineered mesh for breathability, movement, and hold when it is needed while running.

These shoes are made to run and remain comfortable while offering the support your foot needs. Sounds simple, but it is hard to get style, comfort, support and breathability in one shoe. Some have support but rub and cause discomfort. Some shoes are comfortable until later that day when your feet begin hurting from lack of proper support. Some support and are comfortable but it lacks in style and color choices. Mizuno hit it all in one shoe. Know a runner? Share these with them. They may thank you later!

Move Free in the Liverpool Abby Skinny Jeans

I was sent product for feature

Move Free in the Liverpool Abby Skinny Jeans

Of all the pants in my closet to choose from for our 2 Thanksgiving dinners this year, it was my Liverpool Abby Skinny jeans that I chose. I love the Liverpool brand and just spent a few days on vacation in Las Vegas with my Liverpool Charlie capri jean because we do a lot of walking and they are the most comfortable capris I own.

The Abby Skinny Jeans come in 2 shades: Linx (medium) and Corvus Dark. I am 5’3″ and weigh 134 pounds and chose size 6. They are a perfect fit. The length is even great. I typically have to roll or hem my jeans but these are cut almost perfect to size for me.

Liverpool Abby Skinny Jeans features

  • 30” Inseam
  • Super soft
  • Amazing stretch
  • Set-in waistband with belt loops
  • 5-Pocket styling details
  • Zip-fly and single logo button closure

There is nothing much better than jeans that fit AND feel great and that is what keeps me a Liverpool jeans fan. I move so free and well all day long in them. You can shop online at the Liverpool website and also find them at Nordstroms (I found great deals this past weekend on some of the jeans) and also on Amazon.
