Frugal Fashion Find: Affordable & Stylish Sunglasses

Frugal Fashion Find: Affordable & Stylish Sunglasses | #SunglassWarehouse #frugalfind #fashion #sunglasses
~Thank you to Sunglass Warehouse for providing product for review. As always, opinions are still 100% my own.~

Just in time for our end of summer vacation last week, I discovered an awesome frugal fashion find – Sunglass Warehouse. You may already know that I love sunglasses and always have a pair (or two) in my purse, plus a handful lying around the house. Well, the obsession has just gotten stronger.

Thanks to Sunglass Warehouse, I now have a pair for just about every mood. And since sunglasses never go out of style and are always in season (because the sun isn’t going anywhere), they’re good to have around.

When I’ve been in the car for 5 hours, all I want are some oversized sunglasses to hide how tired my eyes are.

The options at Sunglass Warehouse are affordable too. For $10+ you can get a stylish pair of sunglasses, and so long as you care for them properly, they’ll last for as long as you need them.

You would think that for just $10-$15, you get what you pay for, but this frugal find will surprise you. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting much when I ordered my sunglasses. I ordered about six pairs by the way, two of which were for my boyfriend.

Our vacation driver (my boyfriend) was enjoying the music and keeping his eyes on the road with his new shades.

When they arrived, we found that some of them have spring hinges on the sides so that they fit well. I find this is a great feature when you have kids too, because if they get a hold of the sunglasses, chances are they’ll bend the sides outward. With the spring hinges that actually allow the sunglasses to do this, it provides a less likely chance your child will break them.

And not just that, but I also found that I could see objects and colors more clearly and vividly with some of the sunglasses on. Without wearing them, the sunlight just dulled the colors of cars and trees, but wearing the sunglasses with polarized lenses put things into better perspective.

I don’t wear prescription glasses, so it’s not a matter of needing clarity, but for those sunglasses that featured the polarized lenses, it was a nice bonus for my frugal find. Now I feel like I’ve been deprived of vivid vision my whole life. Polarized lenses really do offer a completely different view.

With literally hundreds of sunglasses to choose from, and various shapes and color combos offered, there’s no doubt in my mind you’ll find more than one pair you love and at a price you’ll love even more!  I already told you I got six pairs and there are still more I want! Shipping is also free with U.S. orders of $25+.

Which pair of sunglasses do you like the best?

Photo a Day: Week 13 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear

Okay, so I’m a day late this week, but I have good reason. Yesterday we were traveling home from a week vacation and I was driving. So yeah, I couldn’t really get my Photo a Day for this week up while doing that. We visited family in NY, and had a great time lounging around and just enjoying ourselves, as you’ll see in this week’s photos.

Easy Cold Brew Coffee with Melitta

Easy Cold Brew Coffee with Melitta | #Melitta #coldbrew #coffee #pourover
~Thank you to Melitta for providing product for review. As always, opinions are still 100% my own.~




If you’re like me, you can’t wait for fall weather to arrive. And not just because that means pumpkin spice everything, but because we will be able to warm up with hot coffee. Until then, we have to deal with the hot summer weather and if we want our coffee fix, an ice cold coffee will do the trick.

I’ve tried cold brew coffees for Keurig and when it comes down to it, it’s just piping hot coffee brewed over ice cubes, that melts said ice cubes, makes my coffee watery, and I end up with a luke warm cup of joe. It just doesn’t work for me.

I’ve also tried brewing extra coffee in a regular coffee pot and putting it in the fridge to cool for the next day. But by the next day the coffee has completely lost its oomph. Yea, that doesn’t work for me either.

Easy Cold Brew Coffee with Melitta | #Melitta #coldbrew #coffee #pourover

So how do I get the perfect cup of cold brew coffee? One word – Melitta. Did you know that Melitta has a Pour-Over Cone that fits a single coffee mug, so you can get real fresh brewed coffee day in and day out? And guess what, it doesn’t just work for fresh hot coffee (although I can’t wait to try that when the weather cools down), but it works wonders for cold brewed coffee too.

Artisan Cold Brew with Melitta

  1. In a pitcher, add 2/3 cup of ground Melitta Coffee to 16 oz. of cold water. Mix well.
  2. Cover pitcher and chill for 4+ hours. Remove from refrigerator and stir vigorously.
  3. Place a Melitta Cone Filter in a Melitta Pour-Over Cone. Set cone atop a carafe or jar. Pour the stirred coffee/water mix into the filter. Wait for all liquid coffee to filter through and drip in carafe below. Repeat pour-over process until all mix is filtered. You now have Melitta Cold Brew Concentrate.
  4. Keep Cold Brew Concentrate covered and chilled for up to a week. Enjoy!

This is THE best way to enjoy a cup of cold brew coffee at home. I have had a cup almost every day since getting my new Melitta Pour-Over Coffee Brew Cone & Travel Mug, and used this process as inspiration. I did make a simple tweak though, and now I get the perfect iced coffee to-go anytime I want.

The simple change I made was rather than brewing 16 oz. at a time, which would logically yield 2 cups of coffee, I put 12 oz. of cold water into 2-3 mason jars at a time. The 12 oz. jars are perfect for filling up my travel mug.

Then I added 1/3 cup of Melitta ground coffee to each jar and let the jars sit in the fridge until I’m ready for a cup. Whether the water/coffee mixture sits overnight or maybe for a day or two, each cup is fresh and full of rich flavor.

Easy Cold Brew Coffee with Melitta | #Melitta #coldbrew #coffee #pourover

When I’m ready for a cup, I place a cone filter in the Pour-Over Cone, and filter my cold brewed coffee right into my mug. I add a little sugar before filtering the coffee and add my favorite creamer afterwards. Place a few ice cubes in and I’m ready to take on the day!

I have my coffee in hand, kids in tow, and the summer heat is not putting a damper on my day. This Melitta pour-over brewing process is absolutely the best and strongest cold brew coffee I’ve ever made at home!

Want to join me for a cup?

This week has been full of fun and there’s no stopping us. We’re preparing for a road trip tomorrow, as next week is our last summer hoorah trip because as you’ll see, school is starting soon. Have your kids started school yet? We’re less than a month away!

Saturday

We finally have our first tomatoes that haven’t been devoured by fruit worms. It’s a small, but tasty bounty.

Today she wanted to help pick the ripe tomatoes off the plants. And of course she gobbled them all up afterwards.

We don’t just have tomatoes coming to life, but these huge sunflowers are blooming up too.

Pretty in Polka Dots

Pretty in Polka Dots | #SocietyPlus #polkadots #skirt #plussizefashion #fashion #womensfashion

~Thank you to Society+ for providing a skirt for review. This post contains affiliate links, in which I will receive a small commission for your purchase. As always, opinions are still 100% my own.~

As a young adult, I wasn’t much into wearing skirts and dresses. And to be honest, even now I’m still a jeans and tank top kind of girl, but I do have an array of dresses and skirts in my wardrobe that I like to pull out from time to time.

My skirt and dress collection is growing much more rapidly now than anything else in my closet. I feel feminine and pretty when wearing a skirt or dress, and what woman doesn’t want to feel those things?

Pretty in Polka Dots | #SocietyPlus #polkadots #skirt #plussizefashion #fashion #womensfashion

Yesterday was no different as I pranced around in my new Makena Polka Dot Chiffon Skirt from Society+. I have to admit after I put my outfit together, I felt a bit like a 1950’s housewife, with the flowy skirt placed higher on my waist and the bulky yellow necklace, but I had a “pretty in polka dots” vibe going on and nothing was going to ruin it.

My son had soccer practice yesterday and typically I wear my usual yoga pants and tank top of some sort, or in other words, my mom-wear. I needed a change, even if just for the day, and as we walked from the car to the pier where his practice takes place, I noticed I was getting many more stares than I ever noticed before. I realized I wasn’t blending in anymore, but rather, I was standing out and in a good way.

Pretty in Polka Dots | #SocietyPlus #polkadots #skirt #plussizefashion #fashion #womensfashion

To all of my plus size ladies who are reading this – you do not have to hide. Get out of those dark, black clothes and let yourself shine. Whether you stand out with polka dots or want to flaunt your curves in a bright pink skirt, or even a tutu (all of which Society+ has), don’t be afraid to be you. This just so happens to be one of the things I love about Society+.

Society+ offers the young, fun, and vibrant clothing women want, but that plus size women can never find in a regular store. And not only that, but the company is devoted to diversity, in size and everything else.

Pretty in Polka Dots | #SocietyPlus #polkadots #skirt #plussizefashion #fashion #womensfashion

When you shop Society+ you will only find real plus size women, modeling real plus size clothes. Not an average woman modeling the same piece that’s supposed to work on a plus size woman. Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m not average. I am above average and have always strived to be in everything I do. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that!

As for this Makena Polka Dot Chiffon Skirt, I love that I can wrangle my kids and look good doing it. The little one made a run for it across the grass at the pier, but there are no steps at the end. In fear that she’d run clear off the edge onto the walkway, I had to chase her and snatch her up before she had that chance. As you can see both kids thought it was pretty funny. There’s something fun about wearing a flowy, non-restricting, and twirl-worthy skirt to play with your kids.

Pretty in Polka Dots | #SocietyPlus #polkadots #skirt #plussizefashion #fashion #womensfashion

The only thing I dislike about the skirt is that it’s a little large, but that’s no fault of Society+. I am a size 18/20 in literally every other brand and I measured myself before ordering. But after getting my new skirt I think it’s safe to say I can comfortably size down to a 14/16 and that’s what I should have done with this skirt. It has an elastic waistband, which is comfortable in itself, but as I walked around it inched its way down a little bit and I found myself adjusting it quite often.

Other than that, my new Makena Polka Dot Chiffon Dress is a great addition to my wardrobe and I can’t wait to style it a different way!

How will you style this flowy, twirl-worthy, polka dot skirt?

KIDNAP Movie Screening + Halle Berry

KIDNAP Movie Screening + Halle Berry #KidnapMovie #DontMessWithMom #HalleBerry #moviescreening #LoewsAMC34th
~I received a complimentary invite to attend this KIDNAP movie screening. As always, opinions are still 100% my own.~

So, you’ve probably seen the trailer for Halle Berry’s new movie, KIDNAP. But just in case you haven’t, check it out!

 

Is your heart pumping yet? If you’re a parent, I’m sure it is. After watching the trailer, I just knew this movie would keep me on my toes and, as a mother, was something I could relate to.

KIDNAP Movie Screening + Halle Berry #KidnapMovie #DontMessWithMom #HalleBerry #moviescreening #LoewsAMC34th

Last night, I got the amazing opportunity to attend a screening of KIDNAP at Loews AMC on 34th, in New York City. Of course, I accepted the invite and couldn’t wait to check out the movie. But it wasn’t just a night off for mom to enjoy herself, albeit that’s exactly what I did.

KIDNAP Movie Screening + Halle Berry #KidnapMovie #DontMessWithMom #HalleBerry #moviescreening #LoewsAMC34th

Halle Berry made an appearance just before the movie and to top it off, actually sat with everyone to watch it! I knew she was expected to make an appearance, but actually watching the movie with us made my night. And it wasn’t just Halle who was there. Chris McGuinn, who stars opposite of Halle, was in attendance too, watching the movie herself.

KIDNAP Movie Screening + Halle Berry #KidnapMovie #DontMessWithMom #HalleBerry #moviescreening #LoewsAMC34th

It was definitely a fun and well-deserved night, if I do say so myself. And if you’re a parent who loves their kids and would go to the ends of the earth for them, KIDNAP is a movie for you. It pulls at your heart strings, brings about one of your absolute worst fears, and shows the true love and determination of a mother who WILL NOT stop until her son is back in her arms.

What would you do if your child were kidnapped, right in front of your eyes, nonetheless?

KIDNAP hits theaters tomorrow, August 4th, just in time for some weekend entertainment!

Are you a free spirit? One who lives a life of love, passion, and adventure? A true hippie soul? Or maybe you aspire to be? Let me introduce you to the tribe you need to know about – One Tribe Apparel.

One Tribe Apparel is a fashion brand that began when two travelers fell in love with Thailand’s Bohemian styles and decided to bring those styles to the west in a socially conscious way (I’ll get to that in a minute).

One Tribe Apparel was created to bring bohemian apparel from around the world back to the west and to capture the serendipitous magic that happens when travelers meet as friends and part ways as family.

One Tribe Apparel goes beyond harem pants too, with Aladdin pants, shorts, leggings, crochet and kimono tops, boho handbags, and yoga bags and straps. To show it all off, One Tribe Apparel has created a first of its kind, International Crowdsourced Lookbook, featuring photos of real One Tribe community members modeling their apparel. The Lookbook uses visual storytelling to showcase One Tribe Apparel’s unique styles across six continents and 16 countries. It’s a definite must-see!

On top of that, for every product purchased, One Tribe Apparel donates to the Elephant Nature Park in Chang Mai, Thailand. The Elephant Nature Park rescues and cares for endangered animals, allowing them to roam freely in a safe environment.

If you follow me on IG, you’ve probably already seen and heard this. But I wore my house shoes to drop my son off at camp. As we walked out he said, “No mom. You’re socks and shoes.” I didn’t think anything of it because I wasn’t getting out of the car. He likes to walk to the tennis courts by himself (I sit in the car and watch to make sure he gets where he needs to be). He had different plans today and asked me to walk with him. Haha! Guess the joke’s on me. But that’s okay. #noshame

How to Travel in Comfort #Airplus

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus
~Thank you to Airplus for providing product for review. As always, opinions are still 100% my own. This post also contains affiliate links, in which I will receive a small commission for your purchase.~

Have you started crossing destinations off your travel bucket list? If so, I’m sure you’ve realized that traveling can put you outside of your comfort zone, both mentally and physically. While it’s nice to see and visit places near and far, the physical strains can be quite tiring.

I’m the type of person who wants to see and do everything imaginably possible wherever I go. So whether it’s a personal vacation or traveling for business, my body is always hurting when I return home. With that being said, I’ve learned a trick or two about how to travel in comfort so that when I get back, I’m not glued to the pillow recovering before getting back into my usual routine.

Take Only the Essentials

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus

I will be the first to admit that on a three day trip, I pack like I’ll be away for a week. You never know what you might do or need while traveling, right? But I’ve slowly learned that really trying to narrow down my luggage to just the necessities will not only save me a little sanity when packing, but it’s less weight I have to lug around. Toting lighter luggage is much easier on my body.

Don’t Skip Out on Sleeping Accommodations

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus

If you’re trying to travel on a budget, skipping out on comfortable sleeping accommodations may be a go-to for you. And it makes sense if you’re not going to be in your room other than to sleep. But this can take a major toll on how you feel day after day. Just like at home, if you’re bed isn’t comfortable and you don’t get the rest you need, your travel experience will suffer and so will your body.




Care for Your Feet

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus

I don’t know about you, but when I travel I do a LOT of walking and boy, do my feet feel the wrath. Don’t get me wrong, I occasionally take a cab or call an Uber, but when you’re exploring a new place, it’s the little hole in the wall restaurants and stores that make it all worthwhile.

To keep my feet comfortable during the trip and ready to go when I get home, I turn to Airplus. Airplus, a pioneer in unique, comfortable and affordable foot care accessories has everything you need to care for your feet while traveling.

I have had plantar fasciitis problems for a few years now and with the help of Airplus Plantar Fascia Orthotics, I’m able to walk for long periods of time in some otherwise uncomfortable shoes, and my feet feel so much better afterwards.

While traveling, I also like to take along my Airplus Aloe Infused Socks. I may or may not be wearing them right now (I totally am). At the end of the day, these babies are great for a little R&R. They’re comfy, ultra-moisturizing, and have a soothing texture. Ahhhh, bliss for my feet.

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus

If I’m being honest, I don’t only use Airplus when traveling because they’re also great for everyday use. And I’m not the only one. My boyfriend uses them daily for his commute to and from work. We live in New Jersey, just across the river from New York City. He works in NYC and commutes daily.

His commute consists of walking to the bus stop, taking the bus to the train, taking the train as close as he can to work, and then walking the rest of the way. On top of that he walks anywhere he needs to go during the day, but he never leaves home without Airplus Memory Plus Insoles in his shoes.

Stay Hydrated

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus

While traveling, when you’re out and about you don’t want to forget about hydration. Right now, in the middle of summer, the weather is insanely hot. I can’t even walk a block down the street without a few drops of sweat rolling down my face. This doesn’t change just because you’re visiting some place new. Keep a bottle of water handy, or travel with a reusable bottle so you can fill up when you need to. And this goes for cooler weather, too. Don’t be left in the cold without the ability to quench your traveling thirst.

So no matter where your travels take you, make sure you’re set for a comfortable trip and comfortable return back to your usual routine.

Do you have any travel plans in the near future?
