Hip to be #Shopping: Long sleeves with character


With cooler weather (fall or spring, depending on which hemisphere you’re at) just around the corner, you’re probably thinking you should be adding some sleeves to your tops. And you’d be right. But instead of those same old long sleeves, how about long sleeves with character? Like these?

Choker Neck Bell Sleeve Heather Knit Top
Choker Neck Bell Sleeve Heather Knit Top

This elegant grey knit-top features beautiful bell sleeves that fall all the way down to your fingers. The stretchy fabric of this casual top lends itself so well to these overly-lengthy sleeves. Great for work or a day out with the hubs or your girl friends.

Trumpet Sleeve Pearl Embellished Keyhole Top
Trumpet Sleeve Pearl Embellished Keyhole Top

Striped and beaded, this red and white blouse is both cute and practical. Gotta love those three-quarter length trumpet sleeves – long enough to shield from the chill and short enough that they don’t get in the way of handling kids, groceries or work.

Keyhole Back Tiered Ruffle Sleeve Top
Keyhole Back Tiered Ruffle Sleeve Top

Here’s my favorite – an otherwise simple burgundy top made instantly chic by tiers of ruffles running down the three-quarter sleeves. This all-occasion top is best worn tucked into your pants or jeans to accentuate those gorgeous tiered ruffle sleeves.

Go online shopping this long weekend. For a limited time only, save on Long Sleeves at Romwe. Dig around, there’s lots to choose from.

New eyeglasses from Firmoo

New eyeglasses from Firmoo

Okay, so I’ve been long overdue for a new pair of eyeglasses but between the hectic days and the usual dose of procrastination, this whole idea never quite got off the ground. Along comes Firmoo.com offering to send me a pair of glasses for review, and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect.

So I set off on my mission. Yup, I could literally spend hours browsing through Firmoo’s amazing collection of fashionable eyeglasses and sunglasses for men and women, and I did! I do this every time! If you’re guessing that this isn’t my first time ordering from them, you’re right. The fun part is you can upload your photo to try on your frames, and actually see how each one looks on you.

And each frame comes with detailed measurements of the lens width, length height, bridge distance and even the temple size so you can easily compare frame sizes. I usually shortlist like a ton of frames and then spend the next few days “trying them on”. It’s hard to decide when you like almost everything, you know!! I think it’s a girrrl thing? *wink*

Well, my package finally arrived in the mail over the weekend – ta-daa! – and inside was a hard case and a drawstring pouch. Love the storage options especially when I travel. But if I were to be completely honest, I would’ve preferred the hard case to be a more funky color like magenta or neon green maybe? Brown is so not my color but…


I’m really loving my hipster frame though! It’s the perfect size for my face and it makes me look every bit the hip mom that I am too (lol)!


Inside the black pouch, I found a little surprise – a mini screwdriver on a key ring. Just what I need! The one I used to have in my bag went missing on one of my travels and I’ve been wanting a replacement ever since. The best part is this came free with my order.


So am I happy with my new glasses? You betcha. They are so lightweight sometimes I forget I’m even wearing them. The frame is super cute, and the lenses come with anti-reflection and anti-UV coatings. Love!!

Okay, so enough about my glasses. Let’s talk about getting you a new pair. Firmoo.com is offering new customers 15% off all frames on their entire site. You can grab the coupon code from their 15% off page and remember, new arrivals are updated every day.

I received a pair of free eyeglasses from Firmoo.com to facilitate my review. I was not compensated in any other way. All opinions are my own.

Hip to be Shopping – The Flash t-shirts for the whole family


Are you and your family fans of The Flash? Now wouldn’t it be cool stepping out as a family in these The Flash shirts? I like the idea already! Here comes The Flash family, woohoo!

The Flash Distressed Symbol Women's T-Shirt
The Flash Distressed Symbol Women’s T-Shirt

Here we have a Flash T-Shirt for the Ladies. That’s right…..for the ladies! This Flash Women’s T-Shirt features a purposely distressed Flash Symbol on a brilliant red T-Shirt cut shaped just for women. YAY! A cool Flash t-shirt with a purposely distressed symbol just for the female Flash fan!

Flash Rough Distressed Kids T-Shirt
Flash Rough Distressed Kids T-Shirt

Made from 100% cotton, this red kids’ t-shirt is available in toddler juvenile and youth sizes featuring a very purposely distressed image of the Flash skidding to a stop light years in front of an echo-burst resulting from an earlier acceleration explosion!

Oh and he managed to stop right before the placement of a significantly weathered Flash logo! WHEW! Anyway the logo looks really worn here like….like it raced Flash from some starting point located 573000000000 years in the past where atmospheric conditions resulted in a constant down pouring of acid rain and…..and tied Flash for first place right after Flash and “it” looped “after-present phasings” of themselves 463000000 times while circling the proto-moon belt of Galadrenorica. Uh…yep. Anyway……this one is for the wee Flash fan.

Flash Distressed Red Running Circle T-Shirt
Flash Distressed Red Running Circle T-Shirt

To tap into the energy source known as the Speed Force grants the wielder the uncanny ability to move at insane speeds! The Flash in all of his versions has gotten progressively faster and faster and the most current Flash is capable of running at the speed of light. We would imagine that traveling at 186000 miles per hour has got to be a bit surreal and we highly doubt that anybody could catch the Flash.

Maybe he should start some confidence games? The Flash would be scary as hell at some 3 cup! This bright red shirt can barely contain the Scarlet Speedster as he vaults forward. This is a red 100% cotton t-shirt featuring a purposely distressed image of the Flash…running!

For a limited time only, you can save 50% off over 450 items at the Super Hero Stuff winter clearance! Go check ’em out now. Offer ends January 14, 2015.
