Mama’s social media shoes

Some people have resisted against joining social media. Why? Who knows…it’s one of those things where you better embrace because it will just continue to surpass all your knowledge of the world — just like technology. Our poor grandparents! Mama for one, just goes with it because…it’s in the job description. Here’s a nod to everything we love about social media — they’re in the mail and Mama can’t wait to wear them. #Hashtagthat #SMlove #shoes

Halloween style

Halloween is one of Mama’s favorite holidays. There’s something fabulous about seeing all the little kids dressed up in their costumes and ready to hit the streets in search of candy treats. However, Mama does draw the line on some of the adult costumes we’ve seen lately. Halloween style doesn’t have to mean getting all dressed up from head-to-toe. Save that for the littles and use your imagination and your sense of style to wear one of these hip accessories that will get you into the spirit without donning the big pumpkin shirt (we get it, you’re pregnant but seriously…)! Which one is your favorite? Mama loves the cat ear headband!

Happy Halloween! xoxo

Mama’s Back-to-School #Giveaway: Westfield’s ‘Unlock the Fun’

unlockthefunSay what?! Back-to-school time?! Doesn’t it seem like yesterday Mama was just exclaiming how summer was finally here…it’s true, everyone is gearing up for the next big school year. Lily-girl will be started second grade, Baby Boy is headed to Pre-K and CeCe…well, we’re just hoping she’s going to start talking before her 2nd birthday. Mama LOVES back-to-school shopping…the thrill of a new backpack and lunch box, new shoes, new socks and the first day outfit. Unfortunately for Lily-girl and all her little friends…it’s back to the uniform but at least the styles have been updated this year (goodbye 80′s skort and hello skirt with built-in bike shorts)!

To celebrate the shopping back-to-school frenzy, Westfield North County is hosting a FREE family-friendly ‘Unlock the Fun” style and fashion event on Saturday, August 24 and Sunday, August 25 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., that will include free fashion advice from San Diego-based Stylist Jennifer Rosson of Style Your Life, a braid and nail art bar, mini makeovers from UK-based Boots Cosmetics and a locker installation event where you can text to win prizes like an iPad Mini, concert tickets and gift cards.

Speaking of gift cards…Mama has one to give you…because…why not?! Here’s how you enter to win your own $50 gift card to Westfield North County that you can spend at any of the stores in the mall (woot, woot!). It’s going to be an AWESOME event so Mama hopes to see you there so we can shop together and enjoy some calm before the back-to-school craziness starts again.

Winner will receive:
-  $50 Westfield North County gift card; you and one guest will be invited to attend the VIP Unlock the Fun Event on Sunday, August 25 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. complete with beverage (bubbly!) and dessert reception, and can have a chance to try the different style stations prior to the public.

Happy Shopping Mamas! XOXO

A Nordstrom sale…who can resist?!

Anyone else out there love a good sale?! Mama does and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the best for stocking up on fall essentials and latest trends. This coming fall season it’s all about leather details, fit and flare dresses, ankle booties and animal prints. So many animal prints!! It’s also a good time to clean out your old jeans and replace them with new ones for an excellent price. As you know Mama has a love affair with Nordstrom because the service is always great and you can return anything, even if it’s from 10 seasons ago and the tags are still on it.

Here’s Mama’s top 10 picks for shopping the sale…if you haven’t already gotten to shop…it’s on through August 4th.

Happy Shopping! XOXO

Summer Shopping List

We only have four days left of school but who’s counting?! Mama thinks it’s high time to get ready for summer and start shopping. While as much as Mama would love to wear Tory Burch and Versace everyday, the truth is…it’s not happening. This summer is all about budget-friendly shopping for items that look great but also won’t drive Mama to tears as they get ruined by sidewalk chalk, paint and sand while the kids are off for the summer. Think fun prints like tropical flowers, bright stripes and casual shoes that will get you from A to B without missing a beat. Clothes should be breathable and loose so that you can enjoy the summer sun without wearing about sweat stains and suffocating during the really hot months. We’ll talk about bathing suits later this week…because Mama will be here because school is almost out…squee (yes, Mama is more excited than the kids). No alarm clock and no lunches for eight weeks!

Happy Shopping! XOXO
