Superga Sneakers A Stylish Option for Moms

Superga Sneakers A Stylish Option

When my husband is back home after two weeks away on a business trip (which is usually on a Friday afternoon), the weekend tends to be full on papi time! I log off (almost) everything and even if we are not doing anything exciting we do it all together — especially family walks!

It was the perfect time to debut my new stylish red Superga sneakers. I’ve been waiting for The Shoe Hive to have them in stock and as soon as I saw they were in, I was over there in a flash.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: athletic/running shoes should NOT be worn for style. NO! They should be used for working out or running or whatever type of exercise you prefer to partake in.

If you want to rock the comfortable mama look, PLEASE go for the stylish sneakers option which will look great with shorts or jeans and even skirts!

In my opinion Superga sneakers are better than Chuck Taylors, much more classy (think of them as the European cousin of Converse), comfy and they come in a variety of colors. I have a pair in mushroom/tan which I’ve styled in a variety of ways and now these. Wearing shorts and striped shorts, these were certainly the WOW factor my outfit needed.

Remember: every outfit you wear should have one WOW piece. Shoes, bags, necklace, etc.

Red Superga Sneakers

Really, how can you go back to your frumpy shoes after wearing these stylish sneakers?

Talk about real mom style — these are perfect for the playground, around the house, a play-date, shopping and going for walks with the kids. Come on, you know I’m right!

Oh and in case you are wondering, my daughter is wearing Mini Melissa shoes which are basically the new version of jelly shoes without the stink and much, much more stylish.

Sponsored by Oral-B. Cute kids and video ideas are my own. “brusha brusha brusha…” Okay, I admit, I had no idea you are supposed to brush for 2 minutes. Did you? Either way, the Disney Magic Timer App by Oral B (which is free) makes brushing fun by letting you — I mean your kids — create a profile, scan the chosen tooth brush, keep track of how many times a day they have brushed (something I need to work on) and gives them cool {Read More}

Up and Away: Safe Medicine Storage in your Home

Share Button

This is a sponsored post in partnership with KnowYourOTCs. Summer means fun in the sun, cannonballing into the pool, jumping waves at the beach and… kids spending more time at home which can lead to trouble. Their natural curiosity leads them to open cabinets, drawers and more often than not finding medicine bottles, eye drops, sun creams and lotions that are dangerous when swallowed. Therefore safe medicine storage is crucial to ensure safety in your home. I cannot tell you how many {Read More}

LOVING not Loathing #MySwimsuitStyle this Summer

Share Button

For years I didn’t wear a swimsuit. I refused to because I despised the way I looked. We are intelligent, beautiful women who have started our own business ventures, have endured hardships, many of us have given birth, we have gone above and beyond what was expected of us —  yet we cannot bring ourselves to wear a swimsuit. I want ALL of you to enjoy the summer and to accept and love yourselves. Trust me, it’s not easy for {Read More}
