Teen Fashion: Encourage your child’s individuality with JCPenney! #ThatsMyKid

This post about teen fashion has been sponsored by JCPenney but all opinions expressed here are my own. Some days I look at my 12 year old daughter and wonder how in the world I was lucky enough to be blessed with such an amazing child.  From the time she was young she somehow managed to strike a balance between "down to earth" and "creatively dreamy".  She is the girl who would go camping with her brother's Boy Scout pack and catch frogs...then come home and paint her nails.  She was always the first one to the top of the mountain trail....even if she was carrying her baby doll in a tiny sling over her shoulder.  She can master the frilly skirt look but is just as comfortable in jeans and hiking boots.  That's my kid!  She has confidence, style and a take charge attitude and I really … [Read more...]

Finding the Right Sneakers to Alleviate Foot Pain

Finding the Right Sneakers to Alleviate Foot Pain

This post about finding the right sneakers to alleviate foot pain has not been sponsored in any way. I just wanted to share my recent shopping experience with my readers. In the last few years I have suffered from an assortment of aches and pains, none of which the doctors can find any actual cause for.  My most recent trip to the doctor was a visit with the Podiatrist for foot pain that would not go away.  After Xrays and assorted stretching exercises, the podiatrist could still not give me a reason for my foot pain.  Just add it to the list of stuff on my body that doesn't work right.  He gave me some stretches to do but other than that had no suggestions other than to come back and we can run more tests that will probably STILL not diagnose the cause of my foot pain.  Ok, he really … [Read more...]

Affordable Fashion for Everyone at Modnique

This post about affordable fashion has been sponsored by Modnique and Splash Creative Media but all opinions expressed are my own. Christmas is coming soon and a week after that is my daughter's 12th birthday.  I have discovered that my daughter is a mini fashionista and the only things on her list of 'wants' this year are clothes, shoes, makeup and bling.  I was more into frogs and climbing trees at her age but she has a style all her own and is eager to express herself in a unique way. While I am all for her expressing her uniqueness, I need her to do it on a decent budget!  I have my eye out everywhere I can for affordable fashion ideas that will be a hit with her this year.  When I was asked to check out the Modnique website,  I saw tons of affordable fashion ideas that would make … [Read more...]
