I always have difficulty finding great children’s clothes. It’s difficult to find clothes that are cute and reasonably priced. I have a hard time spending a lot of money on clothes that tend to get ruined at daycare, eating messy foods and drinking colored beverages, or playing outside. Let’s not forget just how quickly kids grow and how one day something can fit them perfectly find and the next day it will be way to small (or so it seems).
I found some great sales at Gymboree. They have super cute kids’ clothing, so I don’t have to worry about breaking the bank on clothes that you never know how long will last due to messes and growth spurts! Right now, everything for baby is up to 50% off the original price. There are so many more great deals that you have to hop over and check them out!
This weekend, I am going to a birthday party for my 8 year old cousin. She is super excited to have everybody over to the house and asked her mom (my aunt) to e-mail the family and tell us all what she wants for presents. Second only to presents, I think she is almost just as excited to dig into her hot pink and zebra themed cake. She’s in the stage where everything that is hot pink and zebra striped is her favorite. Her entire room is decorated like this!
Since spring is just around the corner, I thought that I would get something that she can use when the weather heats up. I found this super cute swimsuit for her at Target. I found a mint-colored beach towel and a pair of mint-colored flip flops to match. I wish I would’ve been able to find something hot pink or zebra striped, but I think that she’ll love this just as much!
Mother’s Day is coming up in a couple of months. I love this holiday dedicated to celebrating how great moms are. My mom does so much for me and I love having the opportunity to officially thank her and show her appreciation (although this is something that should definitely be done all year round).
I really like the idea of getting family jewelry for Mother’s Day. Zales has a great selection of both unique and traditional rings, necklaces, and bracelets that have kids’ names, initials, birthstones or a combination. These are reasonably priced (it helps that they’re having a sale right now so you can save big!). You can shop online or find a store near you. Your mom will love this! It would also make a great birthday gift.
Famous Footwear is one of my favorite places to go to get shoes. They have so many cute styles and carry a huge selection of women’s athletic shoes, boots, casual shoes, dress shoes, health and wellness shoes, outdoors shoes, and sandals. They also carry men’s boots, athletic shoes, casual shoes, dress shoes, outdoor shoes, and sandals. Don’t forget about the selection of shoes for boys and girls and juniors as well.
They have a ton of new shoes in for spring and the styles are great. If you’re still looking for winter styles (since it is technically still winter), they have a bunch of winter shoes on sale (so you can save big!)
Also, I suggest signing up for the rewards program! You can save even more and be a part of great sales. You get points for the purchases you make which can add up in the long run.
Does anybody else watch the Bachelor or Bachelorette? I absolutely love this show. I am kind of a “sap” when it comes to romantic things like that and I’ll be the first to admit it. I love believeing in true love and I always hope for the best for the contestants on the show. On the last season of the Bachelor, Sean proposed to Catherine in the season finale. He gave her an absolutely GORGEOUS Neil Lane ring that was custom designed. I fell in love with the ring and had to find something similar.
I ended up finding that Kay Jewelers carries the Neil Lane line. I found my dream ring after doing some searching on their website! Isn’t this beautiful? I like that it is a bridal set and I think that it would look absolutely darling on my left ring finger.
