Chewbeads

How cute are these necklaces? We all know kids grab and chew at anything. So why not wear jewelry that is for mom but is soft on babies gums and emerging teeth.

They are 100% silicone beads (similar to pacifiers and nipples), No BPA, phthalates, cadmium, lead, metals Necklaces have a breakaway clasp for added safety
Necklaces are a great sensory tool to help babies focus while nursing

Nude Trends

Nude is the hottest color this season. Its always been around but there has been an explosion in 2012.
I love my nude Louboutin’s. They are like the new black. They go with everything. Add a pop of color to your nude dress. Throw a hot pink or purple clutch with a nude dress. Nude nail polish is on the hotlist. Very versatile and very flattering.

Buying + Under the Influence

(not really wine)

Call it what you’d like, sipping and clicking, BUI-buying under the influence. It may seam like harmless fun but turns out that drunk shopping happens more often than not and chances are many of your girlfriends have done it too! The great thing about shopping online is you can do it at any time.

I like to grab a glass of wine and lounge on the couch with some of my favorite trashy tv shows, Real Housewives New Jersey being one, and browse during commercials. I have always liked shopping online but have found it more gratifying to receive packages a few days later with my purchase.I don’t have to deal with parking or rude sales people. Shopping online has a higher inventory so they are more likely to have your size, color and preference. I get it, sometimes you need something the day of, but if you can click, purchase, and wait it so much more fun. One tip I like to offer is shop online at stores that offer both free shipping and returning. Another great thing about shopping online is a lot of sites don’t charge sales tax, which if you live in Chicago, IL or Aventura, FL that can be a hefty price. If you are anything like me I love to save on everything!!

Here’s a list of stores that offer FREE shipping and returns…

Beauty products:

Sephora.com (over $50 shipping)

Women’s apparel :

PIPERLIME.COM

ZAPPOS.COM

Do you sometime buy under the influence?

Use the HALT method: Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired

Over the knee

I am obsessed with knee high boots. They are going to be so hot this fall. I just got mine yesterday at Nordstrom. They are Lavender by Vera Wang collection. They were orginally $750 and were on sale for $449!! what a steal.

How to wear them: I like to wear either stockings or leggings with my knee high boots. A really simple, chic look is a layering of different tops one of which is a long tunic.
