Fundraising in the digital age....

My daughter started PreK 4 this past year and I tried to be an active participate in the CPA Parent/ Teacher group.  I do my best to collect the BoxTops for the school,  I came across a post from Cool Mom Picks  about the fundraising smart phone apps,  I really loved Shoparoo because Buy the products you want, wherever and however you want. Then, just snap a pic of your receipt to make an instant donation to your child's school.  It is extremely easy and fun to use.  

As per the Shoparoo website the applicaton is available for both Android and iOS devices made within the past two years. The device that you use must have a functioning camera with good resolution (2MP+) to ensure that your receipt photos come our clear and legible. This means that two-thirds of Americans can use Shoparoo on their mobile devices to donate receipts to their chosen school or charity - and that percentage is rapidly growing.  Please visit website for additional information here.


Sometime we need to be Lazy...

I have discovered Lazypants via  Z100 radio station Carla Maria's cool picks,  I love super comfortable pants and the sweatpants looked very comfortable.  The sweatpants are little pricey but I decided why yet not at least one pair.  I fell in love because of the color, the fit and the fabric,  I wear them when ever I can because the fit and feel are that great.  Plus, they have a cool Mantra



Thanks to Shefinds.com, I discovered emPOWERED clutch and I was excited because it is a stylish and functional handbag because being a mom my kids drain my phone battery all the time.  I don't need to worry anymore about not having my phone anymore....thanks to emPOWERED...The cost was reasonable when you factor the style and function.  I am impressed with the handbag because I ordered hot pink for a pop of color..I am so content with my weekend handbag plus you have built in slots for your credit cards and licenses.  I feel light and free with this clutch plus it is very powerful charger

 emPOWERED is :
  • Our patent-pending bags have enough power to bring you from 0 - 100% with battery to spare
  • They're universally compatible: charge just about anything (iphone, android, kindle, digital camera etc) with the included charging cable (mini USB) and apple adapters (30 pin + lightning)
  • Re-charge the bag simply by turning the charging cable around + plugging the USB end into your computer or wall adapter

The best jeans ever!!!!

Hello all...Life is pretty good and it is finally Spring!!!!  I need to tell you that I recently found my ultimate favorite pair of jeans...Henry & Belle is beyond awesome and the most comfortable pair of jeans that I own...I bought a pair on sale via the Katie show deals a few months back and I fell in love...I ordered another pair and got a pair of shorts too...I must say I am a customer for life now!  The jeans are in the same price range as 7 for all Mankind and Diesel but I am not kidding you by saying Henry & Belle is worth it!!! Plus the sale section contains a great selection of jeans...

The story of Henry & Belle begins with
the eponymous couple, whose love of style, philanthropy and each other
laid the foundation for the company we are today. check out the back story here


Athletic wear greatness...

Happy 2014!!!  I have returned to my regular fitness schedule and with the return comes a few new fitness wear pieces especially hoodies.  I recently ordered hoodies because of the weather LL Bean Polartec Power Stretch Hoodie is wonderful because it is not heavy and the fit is great.  In my opinion the biggest plus is that the hoodie fabric wicks moisture and resists wind, plus feels soft and cozy inside.  I use the hoodie as layer piece under my heavy coat.  This hoodie is very versatile and key piece during and after my boot camp sessions.
Performance features and nonstop comfort for every activity  
  • Polartec Power Stretch fabric wicks moisture and resists wind, plus feels soft and cozy inside
  • Stretches with you as you hike, run, ski or navigate the day's tasks
  • Snug scuba-style hood fits neatly under a helmet
  • On-seam thumbholes keep sleeves in place
Another Hoodie, I recently received for 50% off was the lululemon Scuba Hoodie and it is thicker than the LLbean hoodie, which is a plus the way the weather was earlier this week.  I found the hoodie to be comfortable and stylish.  I love both equally and I will be using them both to death.
