I’m quite impressed with myself – to be honest, that I was able to release most of my Holiday Gift Guides by the first week of December.  Let’s all stand and give me a round of applause, shall we?  lol – All kidding aside, I’m pretty happy with myself this year because I laid out a schedule and I kept with it.  Today, I’m sharing with you a gift guide that I’m absolutely excited about, because it’s one of my favorites to do each year.  When it comes to Stocking Stuffers, I find that they can be the easiest gift to buy for anyone on your holiday gift giving list.  Why?  Well, because anything that you can fit in a Christmas stocking goes… and for me – that means I get to pick up all the little nifty products that I would love to get or receive as a gift and it can always be something fun, practical or unpractical and definitely interesting.  I have a wide list of products that fit into this list so this is going to be a long post – so without further adieu, let’s get started.

Hickies Lacing System is by far one of my favorite gifts to give for the holiday.  Each pack is small enough to fit into a stocking (of most sizes) and anyone who wears shoes with traditional laces will love these.  I own about 8 pairs myself, using them to change up my shoes from time to time and to fit my personality for the day.  Sneaker designs change but one thing that remains the same, are laces.  You’ll never have to tie a shoelace again and once you go Hickies, you’ll never go back to traditional laces.

Hickies come in a huge array of colors and sizes for adults and children and are so easy to put on and take off.  Hickies is running a Winter Holiday Sale right now – purchase Hickies 1.0 for $13.99 (reg $14.99), Hickies 2.0 for $14.99 (reg $17.99) and Hickies Kids for $9.99 (reg $11.99)

I couldn’t mention a cool pair of laces without mentioning something along the lines of fitness and the MilestonePod is definitely a great stocking stuffer.  This little device is perfect for any runner or walker and whether you’re training for your first 5K or just getting into shape or staying active, this is the perfect gear for you.  This wearable pod not only tracks your running metrics, but it also tells you when it’s time to replace your shoes and it helps to prevent many common injuries a new running should definitely have in their toolkit.

The Pod is easy to use.  Simply clip the Pod onto your shoe once and leave it there.  The Pod collects data as soon as it senses movement.  The Pod is always ready to go and it knows when you start and stop.  There is no need to run with your phone to keep track of the data and you can sync your Pod to the MilestonePod App to view detailed performance data and gait metrics.  The Pod works everywhere, even indoors and no charging is needed.

The MilestonePod retails for $24.95 and can be purchased at: http://www.milestonepod.com/the-product/the-milestone-pod/

Handcrafted jewelry pieces make GREAT stocking stuffers.  Pura Vida Jewelry offers gorgeous handmade pieces and each bracelet is carefully handcrafted by artisans in Costa Rica.  The commitment to their craft is conveyed through the quality of their gorgeous work.  Pura Vida Charity Collection was created to give back to different causes all over the world.  Pura Vida is partnered with over 190 charities and have donated  more than $935,358 to date.  Pura Vida also donates 1% of their annual net revenue to environmental organizations worldwide.  The goal of Pura Vida is to continue to expand the charity line and support as many causes as possible.  These gorgeous bracelets (pictured above) have been favorites of mine to use on a daily basis because they are dressy, yet casual and work well with anything that I’m wearing.

Pura Vida Bracelets retail for $5.00 each or you can select a Style Pack that retails for $65+.  You can purchase your bracelet(s) from Pura Vida at: http://www.puravidabracelets.com/

When it comes to gift giving – I do my best to offer functional gifts to friends and family.  A gift that you can expect from me or a stocking stuffer for all to see would be a reusable tote.  Here in Hawaii, plastic bags are banned and unable to be given out at grocery markets so a great tote makes a perfect gift for anyone.  Urban Market Bags to the rescue.  With Urban Market bags you get 3 or 6 bags per drawstring pack which means you basically have your needs covered with bags should you need them.

Urban Market Bags come in contemporary colors that look great (I don’t know about you but I’m not a fan of that bright blue bag you get at one of those big box stores) and they are made of high quality, durable and machine washable fabric.  What I love about them is that they fold up small to fit in a handbag or cupholder of your car as well as a Christmas Stocking and they are just perfect for everyday.Urban Market bags are great to take to the soccer or in my case football field, gym or grocery store and I love that you have three or more bags to take with you and have bags that are stylish.

3 Pack Set retails for $28.00 and 6 Pack Set retails for $40.00 – Urban Market Bags can be purchased at: http://www.urbanmarketbags.com/shop

Probably one of my favorite stocking stuffers to give out this year comes from Topperfino.  If you follow me on Instagram (if not, hello -what are you waiting for? lol) you would have seen me post about Topperfino a few weeks back.  Coffee is such a huge part of our everyday lifestyles – well, in my case, it’s now cocoa and tea since I can’t drink coffee as much as I would like.  Topperfino is a great coffee innovation, a chocolate topper that not only gorgeous but delectable.

Topperfino is the perfect mix for coffee to create an unparalleled coffee art, but it’s a chocolate topper that can be enjoyed with any frothy hot chocolate or foamy drink.  These toppers make fabulous presents.

Get the Limited Edition Holidays Mix – 10 count box for $19.99 or select the design that you think would make a great gift for just $13.99 a 10 count box.  Purchase your Topperfino for yourself or a gift at: http://topperfino.com/

I have mentioned LATHER in a previous Gift Guide for Skin Care and Body Care and couldn’t possibly resist sharing them again.  LATHER has made great stocking stuffers and ornaments packaged appropriately for the holiday season.  The Soap & Candle sets ($18.00 each) make great stocking stuffers as well as the Sugar Plum Kisses Set ($15.00 each) and Vanilla Bath Fizz Combos ($18.00 each).   Each set would make a great addition to anyone’s gift collection and are packaged and ready to go for holiday gift giving.  Simply add a little bow or hang on a tree and you’re ready to go.

FAB Nails by Beauty Junkees is the perfect little size for travel and on the go, but most definitely makes a great gift for anyone’s holiday stocking.  It’s small and fits perfectly inside and it makes a wonderful gift.  FAB (File and Buff) Nail File is a 2-in-1 Set that includes the best glass nail file and a case.  The file is perfect for natural fingernails and a great nail care alternative to nail polish

This nail file is a great solution for men and women and if you can’t wear nail polish – you’ll enjoy this one.  You can keep your nails looking FAB with a high gloss finish that lasts up to four weeks.  FAB Nails crystal glass file lasts up to a year, depending on how you care for it and your use.  It’s gentle on the nails like a chamois and can be used as a buffer in a back and forth direction, sealing the keratin layers together and preventing peeling and chipping.  Unlike harsh Emery boardst hat can cause the keratin layers to shed, leaving your nails thin and sometimes peeling – FAB Nails is a great solution for a smooth, ridge free glossy finish.

This awesome nail file retails for $14.97 and can be purchased here.

I’ve been a long time fan of The Body Shop and I’m absolutely loving their new releases for the year.  Any makeup lover would absolutely adore these Down to Earth Eye Palettes that have been recently released.  These Limited Edition Eyeshadow Quads are a winter must have and are a part of The Body Shop’s Cruelty-free makeup collection.  With 100% vegetarian formulation, which contains no carmine, petrolatum, gluten or mineral oil – these gifts will make a great find for anyone that wants to do good, feel good and look good this holiday season and always.

Available in 5 different shade selections (quads) and retailing for $24.00, these shadows are buttery, feel luxe and are winners this holiday for any makeup lover.  You can purchase these at your local The Body Shop store or at: http://www.thebodyshop-usa.com

Speaking of beauty lovers, lippies make great holiday stocking stuffers.  Having to narrow down my favorites is nearly impossible, so I figured what better product to choose than a lippy that will protect the lips during the colder months.  FarmHouse Fresh Hydrating Lip Balms have been a staple for my lips this Fall and Winter and I thought these would make great stocking stuffers.  Available in Coconut Beach and Whoopie! Cream, these lip balms are so sleek and ready to rock out any pout.

Made with jojoba oil and shea butters, these lip balms promote healing and hydration with a long-wear formula that lasts and lasts with one application.  They have a light fragrance and taste, but overall I love that they leave my lips hydrated all day long.  These lip balms are perfect for travel and on the go and will be a great gift for anyone that needs a little lip therapy.

The perfect little nail kit for the nail lover’s Christmas Stocking would be great nail wraps or decals.  I was recently introduced to Glossique Nail Deco which makes it easy for anyone to have a gorgeous manicure at anytime.  Say goodbye to dry-time, chipping and harsh chemicals and have a wonderful manicure for those holiday parties.  I picked up a few of these to put in each of my nieces stockings this year because they are so fun and easy to use.  Glossique offers a variety of different designs and they literally can be put on in minutes at anytime.

Personalized gifts make great stocking stuffers too.  Whether they are handcrafted using your own creativity or you utilize a service and put your own spin on things, I love a great personalized gift in my stocking.  This cute square compact mirror you see here is a great gift.  Retailing for $15.95 you can create your own by adding your own text and image.  I used a photo of a sunflower that I took in my garden and added fun text that I love.  The options are endless and you can personalize it with a family photo or anything you see fit.

I certainly didn’t forget about the kiddos in our lives.  Stocking Stuffers are so fun to shop for when it comes to kids because they are so happy to get fun little things that they can play with.  My sons are no exception and I love that we can easily put small and fun gifts into their stocking and they will cherish it all.  Lego Mixels are one of my favorite things to stash into a stocking each year.  Mixels are created by Lego and are similar to basic lego in that you can build different characters utilizing a set of legos to create from.  My sons love them and have quite a collection of these little guys so it’s always fun to add to their sets.

Lego Mixels can be purchased at different locations like Walmart, Target and other stores and I love that they range in price from $4.99 and up so there is a Mixels set for anyone.

The National Geographic Bug Dig Kits are something my sons love and that I love giving out as gifts.  Each set allows you to dig up 3 real bugs and kids love to uncover these perfectly preserved insect specimens (spiny spider, fortune beetle and scorpion).  Of course – there are a bunch of different bug kits online and National Geographic and Dr. Cool’s kits are our favorites.  These make great stocking stuffers or gifts and offer an educational adventure for each child that gets one.  Children will learn all about their speciments as well as many other fascinating anthropods and it becomes a cool interactive lesson with a hands-on science kit.  The bugs can be kept and inspected in all angles as the bugs are preserved in transparent acrylic for easy examination.

These fun sets retail for about $10 – $20 and can be purchased here.

Like most of my gift guides this 2016 – this one is particularly lengthy, but I wanted to ensure to provide all of you, my readers with a variety of different things to help inspire your holiday gift shopping.  Christmas is 13 days away and if you’re still out shopping, I definitely suggest checking out some of these finds.  A few things I didn’t include in my gift guide but definitely suggest are:

  • Pens or Pencils (I love getting new fun gel pens for the holiday – they are great gifts for a planner lover or student)
  • Candy Canes (I absolutely love seeing all of the different candy canes now available in stores, grab a box of canes and put a few in a stocking.  Because, everyone loves a great sweet treat)
  • Body lotion (I didn’t include this one in the list, but I love getting some new body lotion for holidays – anything sweet smelling is right for me)
  • homemade goods (I make a pie or chex mix, homemade fudge or something delectable to give to my postman, delivery guys and friends and family.  Sometimes making things from the heart are the best goods anyone will receive)

** Holiday Gift Giving Tip: Keep in mind shipping times and delivery schedule when ordering online and find out from the company prior to purchasing if it will be shipped and delivered in time for holiday gift giving.

Shopping for men, for me… is well, easy.  I’m the only woman or girl in our house, so it’s second nature to know the likes and dislikes of my men.  But, shopping for any guy can be a challenge.  I’ve been lucky over the years because I have a Daddy that is happy with anything you get him, so long as it isn’t underwear – that’s a long story… and a brother that is always happy with chocolate or any type of food.  I think overall I don’t seem to have a difficult time shopping for these guys, but I know that shopping for anyone can be a challenge and sometimes men are so simplistic, it makes it easier for others to over think their gift.  Today I’m going to be sharing with you a few gift items that I think would make any of the men in your life happy.  Now, these are items that I have tried or have gifted to the men in my life and they’ve been a hit.  Keep in mind that these items are just some ideas, be creative and have some fun with whatever you decide to choose.

Coffee or Tea?  My husband and I are both Tea and Coffee Drinkers (well, the hubs drinks coffee now, I can’t any longer).  Since we are always on the go, a good coffee mug that we can take with us is always a steal and for my husband – it’s an important feature.  The Contigo AUTOSEAL Transit Stainless Steel Travel Mug (retail $24.99) is a great option for men on the go who love coffee or tea.  (I wrote about this mug on the blog a few weeks ago which you can read about here.) The AUTOSEAL Transit Stainless Steel Travel Mug is literally a Holy Grail in our household.  It’s leak-proof & Spill-Proof, easy to clean, stays hot for hours and thoughtfully engineered with a CleanGuard lid to keep out dirt and germs.  It’s the perfect one-handed drinking companion that’s easy with a push of a button.

You can purchase the Contigo AUTOSEAL Transit Stainless Steel Travel Mug here.

The Presse by Bobble (retail $29.99) is another fun option.  While it can be taken on the go because of the type of lid it has, my favorite thing about this mug is that it is a brew, press and go mug.  While the Snow Man design may not be something your husband or man in your life would enjoy, I definitely suggest checking out the designs and features (available also in black, white, red, copper, gold, rose gold and stainless steel – the snowman is a limited edition design).  The Press by Bobble is a high-grade, stainless steel drinking vessel that literally allows you to simple brew, press and take your drink with you.  It’s a BPA-free, dishwasher-safe Presse that features a micro-filter for taste and 3-wall insulation to keep your coffee hot.  This is the perfect option for men like my dad who love to drink coffee but are not interested in investing in brewing a whole pot because he is the only one in the  house that drinks coffee.  All he has to do is simply add his coffee grounds to the cup, add hot water, presse and fresh brewed coffee at your finger tips.

You can purchase the Presse by Bobble here.

myCharge RazorUltra Portable Charger retails for $59.99 and is a great investment for the man in your life that is always on the go.  Like I mentioned previously, my husband and I use our phones for EVERYTHING.  Many of the apps and things we do on our phone drain the battery quickly so having a Power Bank is important and definitely essential.  My family and I are huge supporters of myCharge because we know that their products work and are made of quality.  Let’s just say, we don’t leave the house without it.

The myCharge RazorUltra Portable Charger is crafted from anodized aluminum making it tough enough to stand up to the wear and tear that we dish out.  It is a 12000 mAh which makes it one of the most powerful chargers in the myCharge lineup.  The RazorUltra has a 3.4A shared output and can power two tablets/smartphones simultaneously and offers you 90 extra hours of power boots which is more than enough to keep your devices powered during a weekend road trip.  The RazorUltra comes complete with a cable for convenient recharging and it’s sleek and enough to fit into any carry on or work bag.  It’s a quick charger which is a plus to allow for fast charge while on the go so you do not miss any opportunities for camera use, etc. and it’s pre-charged and ready to go for you when you get it – so whom ever receives this as a gift can use it right out of the box.  Recharges via a micro-USB cable.

You can purchase the myCharge RazorUltra here.

There are a lot of fun presents and ideas to give as gifts for the men in your life and this collection of them are some of the things that I have purchased for my men or that we have already used.  Many of the things in this list are products we enjoy already and that my husband swears by, so I love that I can share them with all of you.

As the season starts to change and the weather gets a tad bit chillier, the kiddos make their way back to school for the 2016-2017 year.  I remember as a kid, going back to school was my favorite time of year because it meant that I would have the opportunity to impress a new set of teachers and meet new friends.  My boys returned back to school at the beginning of August and while it has been a busy month so far, we are so excited and they have been absolutely loving school.  Today I share with you a few of their favorite finds for Back to School from affordable selections that we love and a few Celebrity faves.  Since back to school can be a fun time for kids or some may feel a bit uneasy, it’s the perfect time to pick up some new goods that will surely put a smile on your littles’ faces.

Going back to school after a fun summer break isn’t always easy for littles.  But, finding cool Back to School gear and supplies always make for a great start.  This year I wanted the boys to be able to develop their own sense of style (see the twins with their mohawks and sunglasses in the photo above? lol), but I also wanted them to select basics that would make their year fun and functional.

A quality made backpack is always an important part of back to school.  My eldest Kevin has a full schedule of classes and a heavy workload and homework sometimes.  It’s important that he has a backpack that can take him to and from school while still offering him the option to use for extra curricular activities and sports.  His choice of gear for this year was the Mountainsmith Approach 25 backpack (retail: $89.95).

This multi-pocket backpack is perfect for on the go for work and office, school or sports, or for a hike to climb the highest summit.  It features a dual-anel loader system which is idea for travel and trail), a front panel stretch-mesh pocket with daisy chain attachment loops, Anvil Airway ridged EVA back panel padding which make it comfortable on the back no matter what you carry in it, tool / trekking pole carry, side compression straps, dual side-panel mesh pockets, an internal hydration sleeve to hold 3 liters and an eleastic sternum strap and bit valve catch with a safety whistle.

This backpack is sturdy and unisex.  He has it in burgundy with brick red trim and it looks stunning and manly.  It’s comfortable on and Kevin can stuff this backpack with his school supplies and homework without worrying about it falling apart.  It’s a great backpack to have for anyone of any age and is not only for school but anything.  I plan to pick one up for myself as well since it will be great for my forest treks.

Luke opted for a fun and stylish backpack from Chooze.  Chooze is a brand selected and loved by celebrities alike.  Matthew McConaughey’s little girl is a huge fan of the versatile and affordable clothing and accessories Chooze offers.  Luke wanted the reversible ChoozePack in Quest (retail $43.95).

These ingenious packs feature a reversible design that has two functional sides to give your kiddos the power to choose which print to display.  It offers padded convertible straps (which Luke says are BOMB because they are so comfortable) and you can flip each strap from side-to-side to provide a different look.

Of course, no back to school list and gear would be complete without a way to carry your lunch and snack to and from school.  Kevin opted for something he could use for school and sports and went with the Mountainsmith Takeout insulated lunch pack (retailing $17.95).  It is the perfect sized carry-all for school, office and tailgating and has a look that any teen would enjoy.

To help carry his favorite mom’s delicious soups to school for lunch, he also selected the Hydro Flask Food Flasks.  He has them in the 12 oz. (retails for $29.99) and the 18 oz. (retails for $34.99).  These flasks are perfect to carry his favorite soups or a hot cocoa on those chilly mornings.  They fit perfectly into any lunchbox and are the perfect way to give kids a balanced healthy meal.  They offer improved temperature control technology and can keep hot food items made in the morning steamy until lunchtime.  He also enjoys holding his milk in these and pours a small box of cereal inside for breakfast on the go.

Luke & Isaiah decided that getting a traditional lunchbox was the way they wanted to go this year.  Each of them selected a Personalized Lunchbox from I See Me! (retailing for $29.99 each, currently on sale for $17.99.  Isaiah chose the Kick, Score, Run Lunchbox and Luke chose the Outerspace Lunchbox.  I See Me! is a brand and leader in personalized storyboks and gifts for kids, offering over 30 customizable book titles.  They also offer lunch boxes, stickers, growth charts, puzzles and so much more.  This fun company is a favorite of celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba and Brooke Shields.

Did I ever mention how much I enjoy Quinoa?  Well, I couldn’t resist putting some of these yummy snacks in the boys lunch boxes.  I Heart Keenwah snacks are perfect for any kiddo on the go or to pack with their lunch.  These Grab n Go (1.5 oz) snacks are great afterschool or lunch treats that taste great and are fun and nutritious.  I Heart Keenwah quinoa Clusters and Puffs are a healthy alternative to chips, crackers or sweets.  They are made of organic, Non-GMO ingredients.  They are a protein-rich superfood snack and gluten-free with the perfect crunch to fill and fuel your little ones bodies.  I love them myself and the boys think they taste great.  We find them at our local Safeway and Wholefoods at a reasonable cost.

Setton Farms International Premium Quality Snacks are also a great buy.  Our favorite are the Creme Brulee Blend that has cashews and toffee peanuts.  The Creme Brulee Blend incorporates all the creamy sweetness and crunch of the traditional Creme Brulee without the spoon.  It combines freshly roasted cashews and toffee peanuts with creamy butterscotch and white chips for an irresistible treat.  They are available in 5 oz resealable bags and available in major grocery store chains across the country – Price Chopper, Market Basket, King Kullen and more.  Setton Farms sent us a variety of treats to try but the Creme Brulee Blend is our favorite.  I hope we can find more of these in our local stores, so far I’ve only found them at http://www.puritan.com/ and I’ll need to be purchasing more soon.

When it comes to back to school, the boys are simple shoppers which makes my job easiest.  I remember as a child wanting to have all the pretty notebooks and pens for back to school supplies.  This year, when I did the boys school supply shopping, I also took advantage of some discounts for myself too.  Whether it’s Crayons or Pens, Notebooks and Planners or a tablet, the options are endless and come in a variety of price points.  Some of our favorites included:

  • Crayola Crayons 24 Pack – these are perfect on the go or to keep in the desk or at home.  When shopping during the sales you can get these for about $0.25 each.
  • Calendar or Planners – some of my favorites are the Blue Sky Planners from Target.  Of course, you can’t go wrong with an Erin Condren Life Planner, Happy Planner or your traditional binder planners like Kikki K, Filofax or Dokibook.
  • Pens – anyone who knows me, knows that I’m a huge pen collector.  Some of my current favorites include the Paper Mate Ink Joy Gel 0.7mm Pens, Pilot Frixon Pens and Pilot G2.
  • Pencils – Oh, how I love me some pencils.  Currently my favorites at the moment are any type of Mechanical Pencil with 0.5mm lead, BIC Pencil 0.7mm (the metallic ones have won me over), Dixon Ticonderoga #2 Pencils (have you seen the beautiful metallic ones?)  The Ticonderoga pencils are perfect for sketching as well as writing and erase cleanly.
  • Notebooks – Spiral, composition tablet… you name them and they are available in all kinds of paper style and cover design.
  • Folder / Filler Paper – ah, hand me a ream of college ruled please!  The twins use Wide Ruled, Kevin uses College Ruled.  I love that they are available from a variety of brands and price points.
  • Amazon Fire Tablet – for less than $50, you can get your hands on a Tablet that acts as a Reader or Internet hub.  The Amazon Fire Tablet is affordable but gives your student (or you) the option to get online, use amazing apps or just play games.  It’s definitely a great tool to have for the student or the mentor.

Now – you don’t need to pick up these particular items.  Honestly, I just wanted to include some of my favorite school supplies (or mommy supplies) because I was feeling a bit left out. lol

Last but certainly not least in our Back to School finds are some great threads.  Each child is an individual and I really love seeing them shop and select their own clothing, accessories and shoes – even their own hair cuts.  All three of my boys are simple guys but they do enjoy fun pops of color to their outfits and clothing selections.  Whether it be plaid shorts with a solid color shirt or fun hats and accessories, the boys take pride in finding something to wear that is not only comfortable and functional – but reveals their style.  Isaiah is absolutely enjoying his Rocket in Listen modern sneaker boot style shoes from Chooze ($54.95) and he wanted to show them to our readers today.

This modern sneaker boot style shoe comes with a side elastic gore added for comfort.  It has a signature dual design with easy access side zipper entry making the shoe easy to take off and put on.  It has padded throat for extra comfort and soft canvas uppers.  The flexible support offers comfort while the removable, padded, anti-stink insoles make these the perfect footwear for an active little guy.  They wipe clean easily with a damp cloth or can be washed in cold water and air dried.  Chooze offers a variety of footwear designs for both girls and boys and they are stylish and fun to allow your child to make a statement all their own.

Luke likes a shoe that can allow him to run and play with a little swagger and Kevin, well – if he’s not in his Nike Basketball shoes most of the time, you can find him in a pair of flip flops (rubbah slippahs as we call them here in Hawaii) and a cool pair of shades to finish off his look.  The boys were quite ecstatic to return back to school because the new school year meant that they were all beginning their football season for Pop Warner but most importantly, they got to go back to school and learn… I mean, hang out with their friends, just kidding lol.  The boys love school and love learning new things so shopping for new gear for back to school is always a huge highlight.

No matter what you decide to get for your child (or yourself) this Back to School season, make it fun and colorful and let it represent your own individual style.  Have your kiddos gone back to school yet?  If so, do they sport a relaxed and casual style or do they really like to dress up and have some fun?  Wishing all the students a wonderful 2016-2017 school year filled with lots of fun, friendships and learning.  From our house to yours… Aloha!

NOTHING TO DISCLOSE

 

If you’ve been on my blog for a while, then it’s pretty obvious that you have read or seen that I have a love for shoes and handbags… actually, it could most be categorized as an addition – ssshhh… don’t tell the husband (lol – he already knows).  As much as I love product to keep me in touch with fashion, I’m also a mom who’s realistic and knows that having a lot of shoes takes up much needed space.  Last year I introduced you to ALTERRE 21-in-1 Shoes, a brand that literally takes a bunch of shoes and wraps them into one pair to keep on you.  If you’re one of those ladies that need comfy footwear that is versatile, then these are for you.  Today, I want to share with you a few details of ALTERRE and their Kickstarter campaign.  Starting May 16th and running thrugh June 15th, ALTERRE is running on Kickstarter to help raise $15,000 or more to help fund new styles for next season.  As someone who absolutely loves their footwear – I have a pair of my own, I just had to share.

alterre shoes 1

ALTERRE shoes are designed in New York City but produced with fair labor in Brazil.  In collaboration with shoe experts with more than 30 years experience both here in the US and there in Brazil, ALTERRE brings to you a shoe that is expertly crafted and made beautifully.  ALTERRE also believes in producing shoes with fair labor so they visit the factory themselves to ensure that everyone there was happy and healthy while working.

ALTERRE is inspired by women and each shoe is named after women that the founders and designers admire.  With the $15,000 or more that ALTERRE hopes to raise, they want to use this money to create two brand new looks and a high platform heel for next season.  They plan to include sparkly sequined and metallic options as well – for those divas that are ready to shine.  They have prototypes underway and I am excited to see some of the sneak peak photos they have coming soon.

alterre shoes 2

Like I mentioned previously, I have my own pair of ALTERRE shoes that I absolutely love.  I literally take my one pair and completely change it up so I can go from a day to evenly look in a matter of seconds.  It’s convenient and expertly crafted footwear to provide comfort and quality.  I can’t wait to pick up my next pair and I’m looking forward to checking out their new styles once they are released.

Head on over to Alterre Shoes Kickstarter Campaign and check out what they have going for them, the information behind the brand and designers and how you can  help them make their goal.  If you’re a woman that loves shoes as much as I do – I think you’ll be fascinated to see how much this company has grown in the little time since they have been open – but also, how great of a product they have to offer.

I am all about having a great pair of footwear for working out and today I wanted to share with all of you this pair of comfortable shoes that I’ve been loving lately.  Let me introduce you to FITKICKS, an active lifestyle footwear that is lightweight and versatile for anyone on the go or looking for something to be comfortable with.  They are the “Anywhere” shoe!

footwear, active wear, workout gear, shoes, fitkicks, Fitkicks anywhere, lifestyle, lifestyle footwear, active footwear, comfort, exercise, workout clothes,

Let me start by saying that these are not traditional “workout” or “anywhere” type of shoes and when I first seen them I was both intrigued but also wondered how well they work.  Since I have issues with my ankles, I’m always looking for something lightweight that I can use on the elliptical when working out or something at the gym that will not add any extra bulk or weight to my feet.  At first glance, they remind me of reef shoes, which is something you see a lot here in Hawaii.  But, once I got the pair in my hands and tried them on – I was instantly appeased and excited to give them a go.

The Fitkicks range in cost from about $19.99 – $24.00 and come in a variety of different colors and designs.  I received the light grey with lavender trim which suits me since you know I love my purples.  The pair I have retails for $19.99 and comes in four colors in this specific design.  You can find them in a range of sizes from Small – Extra Large, I have the Large and normally use a size 8 1/2 shoe.  They fit comfortably and easily slip on without any problems.

Fitkicks claim is that you can slip into these comfort kicks and use them for a variety of things… traveling, yoga, cruising, exercise, walking, at the beach, dancing, as high heel relief, running every day errands, water sports and just overall hanging out.  These awesome little shoes take up very little room and are easy to fold and take with you – making them ideal for keeping in a gym bag, traveling with or in my case, keeping in my bag in the car for those days I want to go for a walk or run.  They are made of durable flex form soles and are extra breathable which make them comfortable on hot days – I didn’t get sweaty at all, even after a long workout.  They have great ergonomic comfort and are so easy to slip on and off.

footwear, active wear, workout gear, shoes, fitkicks, Fitkicks anywhere, lifestyle, lifestyle footwear, active footwear, comfort, exercise, workout clothes,

Since FITKICKS offers such a unique design and ergonomic fit, you get full movement potential with your shoes.  The Durable FlexForm sole naturally contours your feet for free range of motion making it the perfect active wear shoe.  Since our lives keep us on the go I love that these make it so convenient to keep your “workout gear” with you – no bulky shoes to lug around.  They are the perfect fold-and-go portable shoe.  And, with technology that is specifically engineered to provide a natural contour, the FITKICKS are comfortable.

The FITKICKS also has a protective toe guard that prevents dragging and excessive wear points which make it perfect for anyone to use.  And, these awesome things are washable and dry-able, hello genius!

Women Shoe Size:  Small (5 – 6 1/2), Medium (7-8), Large (8 1/2 – 9 1/2), X Large (10-11)

footwear, active wear, workout gear, shoes, fitkicks, Fitkicks anywhere, lifestyle, lifestyle footwear, active footwear, comfort, exercise, workout clothes,

After having these for a few weeks, I’m absolutely loving them.  As I mentioned before, they are very comfortable and lightweight which makes it ideal for me when working out and are my go-to shoes for when I am on the elliptical.  FITKICKS offers so many other designs and footwear that I have a list of a few that my eyes are set on like the Energy Sidekicks Foldable Flats, FITKICKS in Black/Grey, and a pair for each of my sons (since they have FITKICKS Kids and a pair for my husband (yay for Men’s sizes too).  I’m not only impressed with how well these fit, how comfy they are, but also the fact that they are reasonably priced and offer you so much versatility for use.  As a mother of three very active boys, these shoes allow me to keep on my toes while chasing after them and I can use them at a variety of locations.  I love that they offer light support and are really cool.

If you are someone who works out and is looking for some new footwear, I highly suggest checking these babies out.  You can find them at: http://www.fitkicks.us/.  Check them out and see if you can find a pair (or two) for you or someone you love.  I have my eyes on a few more and one specifically to wear around the house, so I’ll be heading over to the site soon too.

Have you tried anything like this before or have you heard of FITKICKS?  If so – what are your thoughts?  If not, comment below and tell me, would you rock them out?

It’s no secret that I enjoy the finer things in life… who doesn’t?  When it comes to being comfortable… that is also one thing I stress importance – whether it be the way my hair is styled, my clothing or my foot wear.  It’s also no secret this I love shoes and while I have a hefty collection (my husband can attest to that) and a good chunk of them I buy for looks – not comfort, I really do love a pair of comfy shoes that will take me from day to play without worrying about comfort, functionality and spending time with my kids.  Hotter Shoes offers comfortable shoes for every day people or those who love an active life.  Hotter Shoes Neon

Hotter Neon Shoes

I had the opportunity to try out a pair from the Neon Collection in Khaki.  Currently there are two other colors available – black and aqua (in this collection).  One pair of shoes retails for $119 but are on sale right now for $59 (major steal).  Now when I ordered my pair, I ordered a size 9, which is what I wear normally to ensure I’m not buying a new pair of shoes in a month.  When the shoes arrived, they were pretty loose, but they are still comfortable and easy to wear.  If you have been following me for a while, you’ll know that I have a wide range of different types of kicks… from Under Armour to Sketches and Converse and I’m really happy to add these to my collection.  I love that they are super comfortable.  The fact that Hotter stresses their comfortable aspect made me wonder how comfortable they really are… and I was amazed.  Having worked in the medical field for a while, I have tried on some nurses shoes and thought they were comfy (though not necessarily meeting my cute and hot factor), and these would be perfect shoes for someone who is on their feet for long hours.

Neon gives you stand out statement style, thanks to an eye-catching snake print and suede finish. A structured arch and cupped heel provides support, whilst a deep grooved sole offers added flexibility.

Neon HotterI apologize for wearing the shoes before taking the picture underneath… I was so excited to test them out, we went for a walk and I forgot I needed to take photos first. lol Regardless, as you can see – the shoes are well made, sturdy and like I mentioned above, they are really comfortable.  I love that they offer extra cushioning because that is a big deal for me.  In 2008 I had a class 3 sprain, which if those of you know – is the worst you could get… it would have been easier on me to have a clean break, but of course, my body thought it was better to have the more difficult route.  I was in a cast for 6 weeks, couldn’t drive and still deal with the issues and cracks and pains in my ankle today… but these shoes really helped to support me on my walking and running ventures and I experienced little to no pain.

These shoes offer:

  • Arch support & cupped heel for greater fit
  • Groove sole for added flex
  • Extra padding for extra cushioning
  • Removable Insoles: Yes
  • Fastening Style: Lace Up
  • Heel Height: 30mm, 1 1/4 inches

Hotter Shoes

The style is very similar but unique in those that you see on the market today.  I love the snake print detailing (they offer a feminine look) and I love that they include suede and real leather.  Overall, I must say that even at the retail price of these shoes, I would definitely continue to wear and buy them, because I spend about that much on my regular shoes that while comfortable, these offer great support and comfort as well.

Have you heard of Hotter Shoes?  Would these be something you may try out?
