Say Goodbye Shoes & Hello Viking Sandals – Review+Giveaway

Spring is on it’s way and my favorite moment is when I toss the shoes and socks for the season! However tossing the socks means that my toes are exposed to the world and after ignoring them for months, believe me they needed some help.

After a much needed pedicure I felt like a million bucks, my toes are now seriously pretty!

viking-buttonMy primary choice of footwear through the Spring/Summer season used to be flip flops but since being in the car accident I need proper support for my feet. When I wear shoes or sandals with poor support I cannot stand or walk for extended periods of time without experiencing significant pain.

Just because I have back issues doesn’t mean I want to wear super-supportive yet Grandma looking sandals! Thankfully Viking Sandals has come to my rescue with their Toe Thong sandal.

Baker Shoe has been manufacturing Viking sandals for about 30 years and selling them across Canada in independent shoe stores.  The shoes are made with a  lightweight shock absorbing cork-based sole that is covered with double density latex to provide full comfort  for the wearer.  

There is latex up near the toes for added support while the heel sits in a deep cup that has a latex pad to provide extra comfort for the wearer.  The foot bed offers full arch support and is finished with a smooth suede leather lining on the insole for comfort and to allow people the opportunity to wear the sandals with no socks without having to worry about perspiration. 

VikingI have NO idea how I hadn’t heard of Viking sandals before now, they are almost exactly like my favorite sandals from last year at a fraction of the price! These retail for about $54.99 to $69.99, depending on the style and finish. You can find your local retailer by heading over to Baker Shoe’s website.

Now that I have my comfy Viking sandals and my extremely pretty toes all I need is a bit of a tan and I’m ready for Summer!

How would you like to WIN a pair of Viking sandals valued at $64.99?

Entry is simple, just fill in the Rafflecopter form below, contest is open to residents of Canada, excluding Quebec. Contest closes on April 23rd at 12:01am.

A Personalized Locket from Pictures on Gold-Review

I have always had a soft-spot for lockets. As a child my Mum had a beautiful jewellery container upon her dresser which was strictly off-limits to us. It was a gorgeous little crystal bowl, it had a metal filigree ribbon around the center and an oh-so delicate crystal lid. Inside it held precious treasures, specifically two lockets that I adored looking at. Inside the lockets were actual photos, they were of my Mum and her brothers as children and could keep me occupied with visions of her childhood in England for hours.

Recently I came across a company, PicturesOnGold.com who specialize in creating beautiful personalized jewellery to fit your tastes. As I toured their website, I came across their photo jewelery and became excited. I cannot remember seeing my Mum wearing her lockets recently but I knew she’d be touched if I were able to get her a locket with my sister and I in it.

The kind people at PicturesOnGold worked with me, they had me identify the text for the front of the locket, my Mum’s birthstone and provide the photos. This almost felt too good to be true, my Mum is a sappy woman…much like myself and I knew that this piece of jewelery could touch her deeply. I was frightened that the locket would arrive and be of poor quality, or the laser etching of our photos would be unclear.

Picture-On-GoldThankfully my concerns were unnecessary, when it arrived the locket was simply beautiful!

The sterling silver locket was weighty in my hand, you know as well as I do you’re often taking a chance when ordering online but this little locket is quality and the 18″ chain which was included is subtle yet lovely.

The text “Mum” which I’d chosen was clear on the locket, perfectly centered and easy to read. The Opal sits directly at the top of the bale, linking the chain and the locket nicely.

Picture-on-Gold-locket

 

Inside the locket are the photos of my sister (blocked for her privacy) and myself, one on each side. The photos are so much clearer than I’d expected and centered perfectly within the heart.

The clasps which opens/closes the locket are sturdy and won’t break easily.

The box it arrived in is also beautiful, it’s black velvet with a small bow on the front and was perfect for delivering without wrapping.

Off we went to my parent’s place, I think my children were more excited to give it to her than I was! We made it all the way into their living room before Chelsea blurted out “Grandma we have a prezzie for you.”

LocketMy Mum was shocked, it wasn’t a celebration so this really caught her off guard, in a good way. As she saw the beautiful black velvet box she began gasping and when she slowly opened it her voice became quite and she sighed “Oh its precious.” Her surprise when the girls told her to open it was classic, “There’s more?”

I don’t know if I can explain to you how it felt watching my sentimental Mum carefully open the locket, seeing her eyes fill with tears…well it was a moment to remember. To say she loves her new locket is an understatement, if I know my Mum it will be kept safely in that little crystal container which still sits upon her dresser.

You can find them on Facebook or Twitter, head on over to their website to see the lockets and other jewelery offered. Be sure to you the discount code: Patty 33 to get a 5% discount at checkout.

PicturesOnGold.com really came through and made my Mum’s day and just in time for Mother’s Day I will be holding a giveaway on April 16th, come back and watch for it!!

 

Fresh Produce Clothing Review

fresh-produce-clothingI am a sucker for quality, fashionable clothing and was jazzed recently when I found Fresh Produce clothing. For over three decades Fresh Produce has been providing people with refreshing and captivating casual, resort and sportswear lines. Known and loved by women ages 6 months to 60-plus for lush colors, year-round sensibility, simply inspired design and coastal comfort, Fresh Produce continues to delight customers around the globe.

Given the chance to review an item of my choice, I selected a casual top, the Everyday Hoodie in Peri ($84). There are 21 colors to choose from so it wasn’t easy. I loved the flowy look of this hoodie, I could easily picture myself wearing it on summer evenings from the photos posted online.

Details

Our popular Everyday Hoodie is laid-back with flattering seams and stylish details. Effortless cool never looked so good.– 95% French Terry cotton, 5% lycra
– dropped shoulder seams
– side seam pockets
– gently curved front hem, longer in back
– cuff detail
– raw edge detail
– made in USA

When it arrived I was pleased with the color and the quality was superb! This is now my favorite hoodie, I’ve been wearing it often. It’s so soft and comfy it’s like it calls to me from my closet. Fresh Produce has a sizing chart but I prefer my summer hoodies to be loose and ordered it one size larger….I think I’m still getting used to my smaller frame and next time I’ll be mindful to order exactly the sizing they recommend.

Fresh-Produce

Their clothing line is beautiful, it’s not your everyday cookie-cutter clothing…..each piece is unique and different from what I’ve found locally. They carry lovely longsleeved t-shirts, a variety of summer capris and even a plus sized line with fashionable plus sized sweatshirt I love.

Company owned store and factory outlets are also scattered around the US, including exclusive seashore resorts in North America and the Caribbean.

Mark's Work Warehouse Spring/Summer 2012 Preview Event

I recently sent out our roving reporter, Serena to cover the Mark’s Work Warehouse Spring/Summer Preview Event. Serena shares her valuable perspective of Mark’s new line below, first here’s some info about Serena and her blog, Bewildered Bug.

Hi, I’m Serena (a.k.a. Bewildered Bug), I’m a 30-something, “smug-married”, self-proclaimed people-watcher, just trying to navigate through this obstacle course called life.  I’m presently living a gluten-free, dairy-free and at-the-moment-hubby-free in Toronto, Ontario, and looking forward to moving across the pond at the end of 2012 to join my Luv Luv.  My blog is my measly attempt to relay my everyday experiences, discuss pertinent issues and promote products and event that are absolutely spectacular.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When I first learned about Mark’s Work Wearhouse, I was not particularly interested in it at all.

This was when I began dating my (now) husband, and he worked in construction as a steamfitter. He got most construction gear at Mark’s – his Carhartt overalls, his warm, plaid jackets to wear in winter, his work gloves, thick socks and sometimes, he even got his work boots there. I had never gone to Mark’s Work Wearhouse before I met him, and because construction gear was the only thing we bought from the store, I never had an interest in going back for myself. I considered it a store of utility, one where you went to get necessities, not a place to pick up fashionable or elegant clothing.

Some of the mannequin displays

This is why, when I entered the Mark’s Work Wearhouse Spring/Summer 2012 Preview Event, I was pleasantly surprised by what was presented to me by the brand. Mark’s is definitely no longer utilitarian, let me tell you! Instead, the words I will use to describe it are modern, elegant, sophisticated, fun and extremely fashionable.

Racks & racks of awesome clothing

As I walked into the urban loft space that was chosen for the event, I was impressed. It had warm wooden floors, large historical ceiling beams and spectacular ancient brick walls, punctuated by spectacular loft style windows. The old, loft space had been transformed into an edgy yet modern space which displayed the new line in a spectacularly unique and desirable manner with edgy spot lights highlighting the most exquisite features on the clothing, handbags, shoes and millinery that Mark’s was promoting.

This was no ordinary fashion show. The models were encased in tall glass cabinets, living monuments in a static world while “floating” outfits were framed on artists’ easels around the room to contrast the mannequins that were in open space for people to interact with if they wished. It was just an extremely modern concept, and as someone in Interior Design, this was spectacular to me….anyways, back to the event…

Printed Scoop Neck, Curve-Tech Bra Tank Dress

The fluent presentation by two of Mark’s Fashion Marketing Specialists from Montreal was supported by a large, flat screen television that displayed Mark’s willingness to move forward with technology, a feature that many of us social media mavens (can I call myself that?) appreciate greatly in a brand.

during the presentation

The clothes though, the clothes were the highlight of the show (as I’m sure it was meant to be!). Not only were they stylish and (to me) completely surprising, but they had some fantastic features, such as the Curve-Tech technology, the Hyper-Dri Technology and the 100 Wash Guarantee Technology (which I will explain a little later). It was obvious that Mark’s was out to impress with their line capturing the freshness & wholesome spirit of summer fun. Floral prints and saturated colours imbibed our senses alongside utilitarian elements such as spring trenches and neutral necessities. Even the menswear impressed me, and I kept getting more and more excited about the new wardrobe that I could provide my husband with (he does not go shopping on his own). The only problem now was to convince him to wear these clothes!

The first items that impressed me beyond belief were the dresses with Curve-Tech technology. Curve-Tech technology was created to enhance the feminine shape. All these dresses include a built-in bra – and I don’t mean those pathetic shelf bras that can’t support anything – I’m talking about fully padded, under-wired cups to provide spectacular support and to help shape you spectacularly. Your girls will never recover. Okay they might – but I held these in my hands, I promise you that these are definitely something to go check out at your nearest Mark’s. In fact, I am thinking of picking some up before my upcoming trip – these dresses are perfect for traveling – very little fuss, very little mass, yet gorgeous and appropriate for so many different applications!

The next were the trench coats & cardigan sweaters. The trenches are a bit of an addiction for me – one I’ve never allowed to be fulfilled – but this year I think I will. There were a pink and blue little numbers that had me drooling (okay not literally – but close!). The trenches were made to incorporate the Mark’s Hyper-Dri technology that allows your body to respire comfortably, but which is waterproof. If you happen to get caught in the rain, decide to go a little crazy and run through a sprinkler fully dressed or any other silly wet event that may or may not happen to you (becasue you are a Mommy…or not), the Hyper-Dri technology will make the liquid bead and run right off of your trench, without getting you significantly wet. The even better thing is that they come in a variety of colours, sizes and styles. The cardigan sweaters were absolutely adorable and appropriate. A perfect choice to wear with one of Mark’s perfectly pressed work shirts, these sweaters cater to a wide variety of tastes, whether you be a floral lover, bright colour lover or prefer to stick to black and white. They also have beautiful crochet-styled cardigans, one of the newest resurrected fashions in the past few years.

Speaking of fashionable and stylish, I happened to be flipping through this month’s In-Style magazine yesterday and found two items in the magazine that were extremely similar to somew of the clothing I saw at the event. One was the exact cloth in a different style (*cough printed scoop neck curve-tech dress cough*), and one was the exact dress – okay, maybe not from Mark’s, but it looked very similar. I can guarantee you that it’s cheaper at Mark’s than at any other store (advertised in a magazine or not), with the dresses costing around $60 Canadian each.

Okay I’ll wait for you to get back from Mark’s….*whistles*

Are we back? Cool. You didn’t even wait for me to say that only SOME of the items are available in the stores already – the rest will be released soon.

You also didn’t wait for me to discuss a few of the men’s clothes.

The most interesting thing, to me, about the men’s clothes was their new shirts that absorb sweat. Yes, it sounded bad when I first heard it too. What it means is that Mark’s is now making professional-looking shirts for the office that will absorb sweat on the inside, but that will not show the sweat on the outside. No, you do not end up wet and sweaty – once the sweat is absorbed, the fabric allows the sweat to evaporate into the air surrounding the gentleman, leaving him clean, professional and ready to go. Yes, we made them test this out on site. Yes, that’s exactly what happened. I’m personally very excited because I believe my husband would make excellent use of these shirts. That means he won’t technically have to wear an undershirt, which means that I will have less laundry to do weekly. Ah ha, you didn’t think of that now did you?!

Also, my husband has recently decided to take up jogging and he needs jogging gear. This crazy man goes jogging in the middle of night and when it’s cold, and I worry that he’ll get sick constantly. The men’s athletic wear, therefore, was definitely what I was looking for – again with hyper-dri technology (which would help when my beloved crazy one goes jogging in the rain) and the anti-microbial, anti-moisture dri-wear technology (to keep him comfortable while he jogs), Mark’s has gone above and beyond in designing and perfecting their athletic wear.

The men’s casual wear was also spectacular. Functional, yet fashionable, Mark’s proves that it’s a contender in the Canadian fashion market. In particular, I loved the Denver Hayes Horted Belted Cargo and the oh-so-elegantly-nautical DH3 Short Sleeved Thin Striped Pocket Tee. This event also reminded me of the huge selection of styles and colours of jeans that Mark’s carries. This one though, I sort of knew already because at the end of last summer, we happened to drop into Mark’s to pick up some cheaper jeans for the hubby. We left with three pairs of jeans and two khakis – all extremely stylish, fitting perfectly and a very appealing price.

In the end, I admit that Mark’s has definitely moved beyond selling only “work clothes”. They are a modern, sophisticated, elegant and fashionable brand with a spectacular Spring/Summer line about to hit the stores. I would advise you to keep your eyes out – I know I will be!

For years I looked forward to going to the department store and leisurely spending time brushing all the new colors onto my skin.

Of course after opening the package I occupied my children with a craft and headed into the bathroom to try them out.

First I applied the SkinTrue Pressed Powder – Medium first which went on beautifully. It provided me with a light full coverage but was light on my skin and didn’t wear off quickly.

For my eyes I went with the Trio Eyeshadow– Crème Caramel which gave me a soft velvety day-time look. The colors were perfect for me, I’m not a skilled artist when it comes to my eye makeup but I loved the how-to videos available on the Annabelle website.

Marcelle’s 2 in 1 Retractable Eyeliner went on beautifully, even with my poor eyesight I was able to achieve the look I wanted and was complimented well by Le BIG Show Mascara – Black.

The Duo-Blush – Glow Show matched my skin tone well, I loved that it was light upon my skin and accentuated my cheekbones softly.

Finally I fell in love with Rouge Velours Lipstick – Adrenaline – 210, it’s become my staple makeup item and never lets me down!

Realizing it was only 4pm and I wasn’t going anywhere I decided to try out the Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Pads, frankly I was surprised! They were so effective, removing all of the eye makeup I’d applied in just a few strokes. These little pads have saved me so much time when I’ve wanted to reapply my eye makeup throughout the day!
