Designer Shoe Sale 2015 @ShoeBlowoutSale



It’s my favorite time of the year again!  The Designer Shoe Warehouse Sale will be held at the International Centre Hall 1 this year!  Don’t miss the chance to get shoes, sandals, boots, slippers, wedges, ballet shoes and come hither heels at 50-80% off.  They have over 30,000 pairs of shoes, many of them are samples and one of a kind too.  So bring a friend or two and come celebrate the love of shoes at this #Shoeblowoutsale extravaganza.

Here are some shopping tips:

1. Bring a friend! She/He will always give you an honest opinion

2. Divide and conquer! If you and your friend are not the same shoe size, you can always look out for styles in other sizes

3. Wear flats, ballet flats or Toms so you can easily slip them on and off while trying on shoes

4. Be nice and offer advice to other shoppers, after all you are all shoe lovers!

5. Don’t wear too many accessories like scarves, sunglasses or clutches. Fussy items have no place in a sample sale of this caliber.

If you post on IG, ask your followers their opinion if you cannot decide yay or nay. Use the hashtag #shoeblowoutsale and tag @designershoesale.

See you at the sale!

New York: it’s the place where I live, but it also happens to be one of the best cities in the world! Always at the forefront of trends in fashion, food, arts, culture and much more it’s not difficult to see why it’s so popular. With a population of around 8.4 million and visited by around 55 million tourists each year, as you can imagine, it is pretty busy most of the time. Traveling around the city, for both residents and visitors can be a real struggle. However, with some experience under my belt, I think I have now mastered the art. Whether you have lived here for years, are new to the city or here on vacation, here are my top tips on how to get around New York in style.

Stay hydrated To avoid arriving at your destination looking red and sweaty, always bring a bottle of water. If you are a visitor to the city, or even if you are commuting to work, you will be required to walk a little (and often a lot!). It’s always a good idea to pack a bottle of water in your bag to keep you hydrated during these journeys on foot. If you are taking the subway or bus, or if you are traveling in the height of summer, the water will also cool you down during these stuffy journeys.

Pack your heels If you are uncertain about how much you will have to walk to get to your destination always pack your heels and wear comfortable shoes. Your sneakers may not be as cute or chic as your Manolo Blahnik’s, but they will save you and your feet an enormous amount of stress and strain.


Take advantage of the more stylish travel options For a special occasion, or just because you feel like it, it’s a great idea to choose one of the many luxury travel options for getting around New York. If you have a big celebration on the horizon, you may wish to book a limo from to drive you to your party venue or venues. Or, for a romantic occasion, why enjoy the clip-clop of a lovely horse and carriage journey around Central Park?

Don’t be afraid to cycle A lot of people wouldn’t dream of contending with the typical NYC traffic on a bicycle. While I completely understand this fear, especially during rush hour, cycling around this city at the right time and in the right places can be a real joy. Commuting to work by bike each day may only be for the experienced and brave. However, tourists or locals who want to experience a different side to the city on a weekend excursion, should give it a go. To be on the safe side, stick to the quieter parts of the city and make sure you wear all your safety gear.

Getting around a busy city like New York can be stressful, and it’s not always easy to stay calm and cool. However, with these tips, I hope you get to enjoy all the marvelous elements this city has to offer, in style!


Spring Clean the Kids with Kandoo’s Bubble Bath

Show little one’s the importance of bath time with new long-lasting bubbles


Getting dirty is a childhood right; for parents it is their job to clean up the aftermath. From cute hooded towels, to rubber duckies parents spend a lot of time trying to encourage their kids to bathe. There seems to be two sides to the spectrum, little ones who love bath time and are part fish or, a child that has to be pleaded with to bathe. Either way Kandoo has created Simply Suds, bubbles that make bath time more fun for either end of the spectrum.

Kandoo’s Simply Suds not only provides kids with a fun bath time experience but also contains natural moisturizers. Often time’s bubble bath can irritate the skin, making it dry and itchy. However, Simply Suds contains Natural Shea and Cocoa Butter to prevent drying and help children’s skin maintain its natural moisture.

Along with moisturizing the skin, Simply Suds is a sulfate-free bubble bath solution. It is specially formulated for kids with sensitive skin, so parents don’t have to worry about it causing any irritation to their child’s skin. It does not contain sulfates, parabens, phthalates or other harsh chemicals. The sensitive formula is also hypoallergenic and has been tested by a dermatologist.

Simply Suds formula not only keeps kids safe from having itchy skin but also provides some bath time fun. Simply Suds bath time bubbles last longer than normal bath bubbles. To use simply squirt Simply Suds into a stream of running water and a cloud of foamy white bubbles will appear.
