Naturalizer has a LARA shoe!!! (See what else they have)

Naturalizer Lara Shoe

It’s true! So while in St. Louis, the lovely people at Alive Magazine took us to the Naturalizer shoe store in the Galleria mall, where we met with the brand representatives and learned about the three lines carried in the store, BZEES, NAYA and of course Naturalizer. And we got to pick a pair! Go figure the ones I end up with are named LARA ($99, on sale for $69.99)… I like to think it was named after me or at the very least we were meant to be!

A Holiday Peak from the Jonathan Adler Showroom

To use the term ‘eye candy’ when visiting the Jonathan Adler showroom/corporate office doesn’t even begin to describe the aesthetic haven you experience. Rich tones, bold patters and incredibly accents. I was there a few months ago for their fall/holiday preview and just received their latest catalog which showcased many of the interiors I saw in the office.

Rockport Total Motion Collection Wants to Take You to Miami

Rockport Total Motion shoes

Rockport’s on a mission — one that I had to try to believe! Having recently launched their #PoweredbyHeels campaign they are out to prove that you don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort — especially when it comes to our heels!

It’s no secret women feel more confident and empowered in a pair of pumps (not to mention how much skinnier they make our legs look and elongate us to a more statuesque status). But anyone that’s seen my feet post-fashion week know, they are not a full time reality for this girl (and many of you can relate). And they are completely impractical for most of our everyday actions from grocery shopping to walking the dog — and for you with kids, I don’t know how you do it! So for me, heels are for a 2-4 hour window, mainly events or big meetings and then back to flats. I’m far from petite at 5’9″ so anything longer is just asking for it! Until now.

Rockport’s new Total Motion collection is designed in Italy and offers women a stylish shoes with comfort technology and the dependability you would expect from your favorite, most technologically advanced pair of running shoes. Sound’s crazy, right? I thought so too until I put my feet in their Desert Boot — and it was like heaven. The cushioning and warmth is insane! There is no other high heel that compares, I could live in these. I wish all heels would develop this technology since it’s beyond!

Rockport challenged me to do my everyday tasks I don’t generally do, and last night I took them for a test drive grocery shopping and today I took my neighbor’s doggie, Ellie for a walk. We toured LIC like champs, stopping for coffee and spending the AM outside.

Whats New at HomeGoods + Mindy Weiss Tips for Entertaining


Now that the sun is ready to shine and spring really has spring it may be time to spruce up your apartment (and update that patio furniture). Recently, I joined HomeGoods for a tour of some of their latest spring/summer offerings all styled by Mindy Weiss. Lots of color in the mix and HomeGoods is definitely going in a more modern direction. I’m especially in love with how beautifully set the dining room table is. It’s so festive and joyous just looking at it.
