Custom Notes and Novelty Socks from BoldSOCKS

My son is in the fifth grade and even in winter he is into the sports shorts and high socks style. My kids is that kid in shorts on a 30 degree day and he will wear nothing else but shorts even to bed. Apparently it is ‘cool’ to wear fun socks and as much as they are sports-related the idea of customizing socks is a lot of fun. BoldSOCKS allows you to customize socks for men women and kids.

I customized 2 pairs of BoldSOCKS for Anthony with quotes. He liked the quote ‘Do the right thing even when nobody is looking’ and he also loves the Michael Jordan brand. So that is my inspiration behind the socks I ordered for him.

Not only do they so many great printed socks, customizing is very easy. I just chose a color, size and noted what I wanted them to say. I could upload fun things to print like artwork from the kids that would be fun for my husband or Grandma. I can do any wording like with Anthony’s novelty socks or even have fun with theme images like Fortnite or hobbies for the kids.

Whether you are doing an Easter basket for the kids, grandkids, husband or friends BoldSOCKS are a fun item to include. With Mother’s Day coming soon they are great gifts for Mom and the kids can help customize for her.

My Cold Weather Skin Reactions Reduced with Seirus Innovations Products

I have partnered with Seirus for this feature

My Cold Weather Skin Reactions Reduced with Seirus Innovations ProductsPicMonkey Image

It began about 2 years ago. I would sit at my son’s soccer practice and shortly after feel welts on the bottom of my feet and then start itching my neck and arms. I would get these hives that were red and very itchy. I remember sitting in a chair on the sidelines one cold morning game just going nuts! My neck was so itchy and my hands were suddenly so red. It was cold and so uncomfortable. It began happening at practices and games all season. I knew at my upcoming physical appointment I would want to mention it.

My doctor appointment came and I told her my itchy welt stories. They always happen when outside and cold. They occur at my son’s sports events, washing the car and out in the yard. I was told it is Cold Urticaria. This condition is a skin reaction to cold that appears within minutes after cold exposure. Affected skin develops reddish, itchy welts (hives).

I still suffer today! I am physically uncomfortable in my own skin on cold days and nights I have to be outdoors. I no longer sit on the field for any of my son’s outdoor practices as I sit in the car with the heat on. My husband washes my car on cooler days for me. If the house is too cold (for my skin) I am in layers to avoid turning the heat too far up. I refuse to sit out his games so I just suffer through it. I suffer through evening walks with my husband and our puppy!

Now I have some relief! I am seriously more grateful than anyone can imagine for Seirus products! Their all-weather, heatwave and heat touch products are a lifesaver if I have to go outside in the cold. Their snow products keep me just warm enough to avoid the itchy redness. Essentially every area of my body where skin is exposed will break out!

I use the DynaMax Fleece-Lined Neck-Up and it literally keeps all the redness and hives away for an entire practice! Another product of theirs I have is the Heatwave Socks. When my skin is reacting to cold, even with shoes and standard socks I get very itchy welts on the bottom of my feet! These socks got me through flag football clinics for him the other day and I had no welts. I bought myself some Seirus gloves online last spring and they worked so well I knew their other lines would work great and I am so relieved now from head to toe.

Maybe you don’t suffer with Cold Urticaria. Maybe you love snow sports or just hate the cold. Seirus will help you out from heatwave to Gore-Tex and extreme weather wear. You’ll want to see all that they offer at Seirus.com.

Fashion For The Busy Mom – Liverpool Jeans

Just because we are wiping handprints off white walls and using shower heads to wash a filthy dog doesn’t mean we don’t want that women fashion all day. There are those days we feel like ‘yoga pants’, but on most days I want to feel like ‘designer jeans’. I am a Mom of boys and it is easy to lose my identity of being a woman in my everyday life.

As a teenager and young woman I loved girl nights, a night at a club to chat with a cocktail about life and work. Our biggest concern was the hours we can get in at work and what our plans will be for the next weekend. My concerns and plans have changed but my heart is bigger…and my hips and legs a bit. But, I am still a woman and an even stronger woman and I can do the day in style. Liverpool Jeans has that designer look BUT not the designer prices and all the comfort I need to do that jog upstairs when I hear a crash and then silence with a house of boys.

Whether you need a pant like the Riley Cropped pants or shorts on a warm day like the Corine Walking Shorts you will wonder how you might possibly be comfortable in such jeans until you put them on and that Liverpool comfort hits you. I do not feel like I am wearing jeans but I sure have that designer jean look. I say designer because you won’t find these at your big box discount store. These are quality and my local mall outlet carries these but if you take the tag to comparable jeans on the floor by other brands you will love the price points of Liverpool clothing.

We have enough worries in our day. We need comfort at all levels from the random hug by your teenager to clothing that we love to stay in. I am a huge fan of the Liverpool brand and have been sharing about these with all of my Mom friends and you will too. You have to walk, sit and get through a day in these jeans and you will agree that they hit the mark on comfort, look and price. I have been ordering my regular size and they are a true fit but will stretch a tad so if you are in doubt I would try a size down.

Liverpool Jeans are at local boutiques and clothing stores near you. Head to the Liverpool Jeans website and see their store locator for more on where to find the styles in your area. We aren’t JUST Moms, we are FINALLY Moms and we deserve to feel good about ourselves and all levels of comfort around us everyday.

Spring Summer kids clothing

With Easter coming I wanted to feature a clothing brand for baby and kids that not only offers quality clothing and accessories but also gives back. Spring Summer kids clothing from Rockin’ Baby will help mothers around the world with your purchase.

My son will spend this Easter in the Blue Brushed Check Shirt and Camel Cord Trousers. He is 8 and because they carry up to size 10 years he is able to wear the line of outfits they offer.

Ordering this outfit was a risk because my son is so picky with pants. I can never get him in jeans. He only wears shorts or athletic clothing. I had him look at how the waist is designed as that is the part that bothers his bony hops most. We tried it on and took some photos and as I was editing photos and became busy I noticed he was not quick to take the outfit off. Until I told him to get in the shower he was lounging in this outfit without complaining. That says a lot with him about the comfort he felt in these pants and the top.
