Splurge or Save on Girls Glitter Shoes

GIRLS' CLASSIC GLITTER BALLET FLATS

Sure it’s fun for them, but what about for your wallet? Do you cringe as much as I do when you hear those little voices say, “Mommy, my shoes are ripped”?

Or when you desperately wanted to be just like your mom because she was the coolest person you knew? (Don’t be too flattered mom, I did only know like 20 people then.

Yeah, see, sometimes you take one for the team and you wear the matching outfits so that your daughter can feel cool.Continue Reading

Fall is lurking in the shadows of summer, just waiting for the right time to pounce into full view. Like your mother that you friended on Facebook, you can feel the presence, even if nothing is officially liked or posted yet. Pumpkin Spice lattes are back in your regular coffee break rotation, New York Fashion Week updates have hijacked your Instagram feed, and there is a regular argument in your house every Saturday centered around how much football Mommy and Daddy have watched compared to how much Doc McStuffins your toddler has been able to enjoy. As soon as the temperatures dip in the slightest, fall will jump into full view.Continue Reading
