$100 Lands End Giveaway! #LandsEndBTS @NavyPlaid

Win a $100 Lands' End Gift Card
Hosted by Uniform Mom
Sponsored by Lands' End

2014 Back-to-School Trends

From the playground to math class, phys-ed to afterschool activities, here’s a look at some of the style trends for the 2014 back-to-school season:
  • Among the key trends for 2014 is jeanswear. Jeans are everywhere – from tops to bottoms and dresses. All jeanswear looks sharp when paired with bold colors such as saturated hues of orange, pink and yellow. It’s a great backdrop for all the layering pieces this fall.
  • Playing right into a child’s need for comfort, back-to-school shoppers will see “dressed-up comfort” with items such as sweatshirts, hoodies, sweatpants and track pants paired with dressier items such as poplin shirts.
  • Flora- and Fauna-Inspired Prints, Designs - Much of kids’ fall fashion is taking its cue from nature. Woodland creatures including owls and foxes debut on intarsia sweaters for girls. More exotic animal prints can be seen on hoodies, cardigans and graphic tees.
  • Tops Designed for Intentional Layering - Layering is a great way to build upon a back-to-school wardrobe. The good news is that the layered look is big this back-to-school season. So start with the basics like a tee and jeans, then add a button-up shirt and hoodie as the temps dip. Roll sleeves under
    cardigans and sweatshirts.

Prize : One lucky reader will win a $100 Lands' End Gift Card from Lands' End.

The event dates are July 16 - August 1 at 12:00 AM ET. Open to US residents only. The winner will be chosen at random and will be notified via the email they used to enter the contest. If after 48 hours, there is no response, another winner will be chosen.

Brooks Running Swag I Won!

I recently entered a giveaway that was posted on the Sweeping America website (check out Sweeping America HERE).  They post a lot of snail mail sweeps, text sweeps, and quick entry period sweeps.  The Brooks giveaway was one of those that was only open on one day for a certain amount of hours and I got in!  I knew I had a great shot to win due to the small entering period window and I won!

I had no idea what I exactly won because it wasn't listed on the website anymore so it was sort of a surprise.  The people at Brooks emailed me saying I won and asked what my sizes were.  They were super nice.  So yesterday, I got my swag.  I added it all up and it is worth approximately $735!!!!  Biggest win this year.  Not to mention THE best win in a long time since I'm a runner and my current running clothes are pretty pathetic. haha 

So my haul is two shorts, a top, capris, jacket, hat, compression socks, pair of running shoes, pair of track shoes, backpack, hat, and bag.  Everything pretty much fit - the shorts were both a bit loose.  I guess I'm a bit smaller than I realize.  But nothing a safety pin couldn't help.  The shorts also had the panty in them so they'll stay on pretty good which I love!!!  The stuff is really good quality.  You can just tell.  I'm so excited!  Can't wait to try it all out!  Being a runner, this is a dream win.  I have been entering for years on several runner blogs and can never win anything so to get it all at once like this is satisfying.  I am so grateful! 

Here is the close up of the shoes I won.  The running shoes are Brooks PureFlow 3 ($100).  According to the site, these shoes are meant to embrace lightweight without losing cushion.  I prefer lightweight shoes for sure and these look very comfy so I can't wait to see how I feel running in these.  The track shoes are The Wire 3 ($120).  They also came with spikes.  These are ideal for distances 1500 meters and beyond.  I can't wait to try these out someday.

Here I am wearing the compression socks ($50) with my new kicks.  I've never had compression socks before (even though I've been running since 2007) so I kind of feel like I'm now an official part of the blogger running community.  haha It seems like they all have compression socks and now I do, too! 
A lot of the clothes I won are PureProject Apparel.  I just found this video about the clothing and learned stuff I had no idea about.  Like all the pockets everywhere (that I didn't see right away) and that the shirt had side cinching which makes it so cute! 

Here are some more pictures from the Brooks website of the clothes I won.

These shorts ($75) were super super cute.  It had back buttoned pockets (super cute) and then around the waistband, it had open pockets in the back and the front.
These shorts ($42) are very lightweight and reflective.  At first glance, I thought they had no pockets.  Wrong!  In the built in panty, there were front and back open pockets!  Awesome!  I'm a girl that needs pockets. 
These capris ($68) fit me like a glove.  They're for temperatures of 40 to 65 degrees.  So they'll keep you warm.  They also have a zippered back pocket. 
This shirt ($60) is SO soft.  Like I want to wear it constantly.  It is definitely a tech kind of shirt (moisture-wicking).  It has side, vertical drawcords that cinch the top up (SUPER CUTE). 
I am absolutely in love with this jacket ($135)!!!  The website says it is wind and water resistant with breathability.  There are two front vertical zip pockets and one back zip pocket which are somewhat concealed under the white fabric.  Super cute!!! 

This is the hat ($20).  This is really nice and has silver along the brim which I love.  This will be great if I ever have to run in the rain. 
This bag ($15) you could use to throw your shoes in and go.  It also has water-resistant fabric. 

This was the backpack ($50).  Tons of pockets including two side mesh water bottle pockets and a ventilated shoe pocket.  Also has a waist belt.  So this would be great for hikes along with normal day to day stuff. 
So that is all the stuff I won!  Can't wait to start wearing/trying some of this stuff out.  I'm so happy.  Thanks, Brooks!!!!

1 Lucky Winner will win a Mike's Vertical Grill!
Whether you are a master griller or just starting out, Mike's Vertical Grill is for you! The secret to this amazing cooking device is it's vertical heating element. Food is placed in a custom grilling basket, which hangs between two charcoal heating columns. This enables your food to be cooked on both sides simultaneously and in half the time of conventional grilling!
As your food cooks, any grease drippings fall into a water basin as the bottom of the grill - virtually eliminating "flare-ups" and excess smoke altogether! Mike's Vertical Grill also has a standard grilling surface at the top, which is ideal for cooking mixed vegetables, corn on the cob, and even toasting buns!
Not only is this a great grill for cooking hamburgers and hot dogs, but it's great for cooking some foods that most people have difficulty cooking on a conventional grill such as fish, steak and chicken!
Best of all, Mike's Vertical Grill is extremely compact making it the ideal choice for tailgating events, beach picnics, camping trips or backyard gathering's.
  • Hot Dogs - 1 minute, 15 seconds
  • Hamburgers - 4 to 6 minutes (depending on size)
  • Chicken Breast - 7 minutes
  • London Broil Steak (1 Inch Thick) - 6 minutes
  • Sears the meats on both sides, while holding in the juices and draining off the fats.
"Ignite your passion for grilling again with my new grill, the Vertical Grill!" Mike's Vertical Grill Inventor Mike Esposito
"Inventor Mike Esposito has turned the charcoal grill on its side, literally. Mike's Vertical Grill is a box shaped unit that is filled with burning charcoal and grilled inside of. Yes, I ended that sentence with a preposition. Food is placed into a folding grill basket and inserted into the middle of the box. Charcoal, burning in two columns, heats the food on both sides vertically, much like a toaster on its end. Since this unit grills on both sides simultaneously, the Vertical Grill cuts cooking times in half , without doing any of that annoying flipping." Derrick Rich

CANCER July 2014 Astrology & Color Astrocolorscope Forecast

I just found Elizabeth Harper on Youtube and I love her already!  Great messages and I felt so connected with her.  The reading seemed pretty relevant for me.  Check her out.

June 2014 Instagram Pics

Thought I'd share with you guys some of my June Instagram pics.  You can follow me on Instagram HERE

Ah....Marcus from The Bachelorette.  Gorgeous!
Nail polish win - I'm not a big fan of the nail polish though.  Does not stay on my nails but then again, most don't.

One of my last times at the Five Salon.  That right there is about 4 inches chopped off with an additional 2 or so inches more chopped off during the styling session.  Let's just say, don't go into the salon annoyed by overly long hair because you'll just want it all chopped and will regret it later!  Totally regretting it.  It doesn't look horrible - it just looks weird especially when it is curly.

Hope so!  Life overall has been pretty rough but I'm super optimistic for the future.  No where to go but up! 

Love this Freepeople top but super expensive!

Got my Jacksonville visitor's magazine in the mail.  Because I am moving to Jacksonville! 

Couple of oracle cards I pulled one day.  Seems my future is bright. 

I definitely need to remember this.

A win.

I like this - Pay Attention which to me also means Be Present.  I tried a lot in June to be present.  Super hard to do and I think I've completely failed at that in July so far but it is a good reminder for sure.

A couple things I bought at Kohls.  <3

Bought this at Target to put water in at work.  Love it!

Someone brought in free Panera coffee to work twice last month.  Super awesome. 

Scarf I won.

Me showing off my muscles for which I don't even work out to get. lol

Audi A6 at my apartment complex clubhouse.  #InLove

Yep - one of those Audi A6s LOADED....$63k...or $1k a month for 5 years PLUS a $12k downpayment.  RIIIIGHT.  Well not in my future right now. lol

Always coffee time!

Put in my 30 day notice!  So not much time to find a place in FL...I might be homeless come the end of July. lol  Currently waiting on my new job to get the paperwork together so I can go find a place.  #Impatient #NotMuchTime

Love this!

I'm in my closet. Right before I went for a run/walk.  The lone run/walk I do a month just to get the heck outta the house and get some sun.

Got some freckles from that sun. yay!

Feeling the breeze after the run.  The one good thing about my shorter hair - my pigtails look way cuter!

The lake I run around.

Not my 4Runner but I love them wheels.  Those would look super fab on my 4Runner.

Showing off my beachy waves.  For a How-to, check it out HERE.
The end!  Hope you liked.  Have a great weekend everyone.
