Product Review: Dr. Scholl’s Fast Flats – Cute and Comfy

Dr. Scholl's conjures up images of thick, white orthopedic shoes...not light, comfortable flats. So about a year ago when they first came out with their Fast Flats, I was initially skeptical.

Product Review: Purple Ribbon Jewelry – A Daughter’s Hope

I am a competitive person by nature. It isn’t limited to fundraising or professional performance…I’m even competitive with myself. “It took me 15 minutes to blow dry my hair yesterday? I bet I could do it in 10 today!” It’s just the way I’m hardwired. So when I started setting up the a

Summer Product Review: Reef Flip Flops

I discovered Reef flip-flops about 10 years ago and I absolutely love them. As soon as we have the first warm day of spring I’m wearing mine outside and they are my number one footwear for the whole summer. I wear them everywhere – I have shopped, partied, gardened, even hiked in them. I also
