A Holiday Tradition – pajamas @SomaIntimates #pajamasallday #gifted

Every year growing up my mom would let me open one present on Christmas Eve and I knew it was a pair of pajamas. I have since started that tradition with my girls as well (even matching ones too).  I love a nice pj set and now that I am older I cannot wear any fleece or flannel – just too hot at night! So glad that Soma Intimates sent me their cool nights pjs to test out. Not all pajamas are created equal! These ones are the best.

Moms – you will love them and dads – they are the must have gift this holiday season. They are super soft, comfy and keep you cool at night. If you buy a solid color no one will know they are pajamas! You will want to lounge in them all weekend. The jingle plaid is a festive but no too over the top for the holidays and I love the short sleeved black shirt. I am a more traditional pj lover – no funky prints for me. Soma also sent me a grey pair which is cute, comfy and makes for perfect lounge wear as well.  The soma brand began in 2004 and sells on trend lingerie and loungewear as well as beauty products.#pajamasallday is what I love during the holiday season!

Check them out! There is still time to shop online!

A Boot for all seasons, especially winter @MuckBootCo #MuckBoots #sponsored

Winter weather is coming to New England. You better be prepared with a great boot!  I am so glad that @MuckBootCo sent me a pair of boots to test out. I do love a good pair of boots but what can be tricky during the winter is matching your winter boots to a work or casual outfit. Not everyone likes to wear bulky snow boots.

The Original Muck® Boot Company has a boot for everyone in your family. If you are like me and like a sturdy leather boot but don’t want to worry about snow, salt and damage to your boot try the woman’s combo leather boot.  The Original Muck Boot Company sent me this tall, sleek leather Combo boot to test out. What I like about it is that it not only looks great with a skirt, dress or leggings but it is made with water resistant leather, warm neoprene, and it is comfortable. It is a pull on boot with adjustable calf straps too.

All their boots come nicely packaged in a sleek black box and with a nylon shoe bag as well so it makes a perfect gift.They have a great line of cold weather boots  including the Arctic Après Lace, which is functional yet fashionable near the slopes or in your driveway. These are waterproof too and have a warm fleece lining and a slip-resistant sole. The company’s mission was to create the most comfortable, high performance footwear on the market and to solve the need for a more comfortable boot for use in messy and tough conditions. Indeed they did create a great line of boots!  Every boot in the line is expected to deliver the same 100% waterproof quality and comfort that inspired the original footwear. I do like how there is a breathable lining inside the boot as well. There are over 60 styles of rubber and leather footwear, all designed to tackle tough conditions – or just to look fashionable. So if you are looking for a warm, waterproof boot this season this is the line for you.

Holidays, make-up, movie, Teens

What to get the teens this holiday?

I really have no idea what to get the teens this holiday season! lol!  Well, they are a hard bunch to buy a gift for.  It is nice to be able to open a present on Christmas but since this age group is very picky I tend to go with a gift card — which of course they do love. Here are my suggestions:

Yes a gift card – some may say they are not personal but teens do love them. What I do is wrap up a gift with it. My go to gift is a gift card to the movies and then wrap up some chocolate and treats with it! Simple and you are done!

QVC – they really are my go to site (or you can catch them on TV) – nice gifts, nicely wrapped and affordable. From hats to scarfs and more they really have a good selection for teens.  I love the jewelry they have too – like these Honora 8.0mm Cultured Pearl Sterling Stud Earrings (Item #J294066) For approximately $22.00 you have a really nice pair of earrings and a cute matching jewelry bag to go with it.

Tech and Teens – For girls I think it is much easier as you can purchase accessories, jewelry, handbags and I am sure they will appreciate any type of technology! Same for teen boys – it can be tricky but a gift card, any electronics or brand name sweatshirt – think North Face or UnderArmour and your shopping for teens can be complete in a flash.

Happy Shopping!
