Top 5 Gifts for Mom


Mother's Day is Sunday, May 8, 2016 and is right around the corner! While I'm sure mom would love some flowers to make the house smell nice and look pretty, but after only a couple of days, the flowers wilt and no longer have as much glamour as they did before. This year, why not get mom something a little more.....long lasting, just like your love for her.

We've compiled a list of our top 5 gifts for mom for this Mother's Day.

1. After a hard day at work, the last thing mom wants to do is squeeze her feet into an uncomfortable pair of running shoes as she begins her workout for the day. She already dreads the run because she's had a long day and thinking about the pain her feet will be in is almost convincing her not to workout in the first place. STOP! With the Adidas Solar Boost running shoes, her feet will be surrounded by the comfort a STRETCHWEB rubber sole which will provide comfort as well as stability with every step. These cute shoes are just what she needs to have the motivational boost to keep being the MOM-superhero that she is!

Don't feel limited to the cute running shoes listed above (even though you could wear them while out), but why not spruce up your outfit with a some cute Sperrys? These Firefish Boat Shoes in grey are stylish and comfortable. If mom doesn't like the neutral or earthy tones, there are many other choices on our website. Dress these up with crop jeans and a long sleeve crew neck sweatshirt and you are ready for a walk in the park!

Your mom will look like a supermodel when she wears these with added comfort and the traction she will need.

Winter Gear Storage


Well, we don't want to jinx it, but the Spring weather will be here to stay relatively soon, if it's not already. Do you know what that means? You have to find somewhere to store all those puffy coats, scarves, mittens, hats and winter boots until the next time the snow graces us with its presence. That's quite a lot of gear to take care of, isn't it? The lack of snow may also mean you're starting to think about stowing away some of your dress boots as well if you don't typically pair them with dresses when the weather is nice. This blog is filled with some tips and ideas for you to store your winter wears until next time.

First of all, before you store your winter boots, you will want to be sure to give them a good cleaning.
Winter boots are designed to withstand all the snow, sleet and ice that we trudge through. In order to protect ourselves from a not-so-graceful fall, we put down salt, sand and other materials for added traction. But sometimes these materials can wreak havoc on our boots! The perks of winter boots is that they're waterproof, or water resistant at the very least. Get a little warm water going in the sink or bath tub, and give your winter boots a little bath. Scrub all the salt stains off the upper and shaft, and be sure to get the granules of salt, pebbles and twigs out of the grooves in the outsole. When you're done cleaning, be sure to let your boots dry completely.




Now on to all the winter accessories: a great way to store these is to get a small plastic tote with a lid. If you have quite a large stash of gloves, scarves and hats, you might want to get a separate box for each category of accessory. You'll want to be sure you're only keeping what's useful, so be sure to check for holes in the items, correct sizes and that every mitten has a mate. Once you've sorted and divided everything, be sure to label the boxes on the outside with some decorative labels, a permanent marker or even with some tape labels before you store them away. Because these boxes are small, they won't take up too much room in a closet or other storage area, and the lids allow you to stack them on top of each other, too! If you don't want to keep your jackets hanging in the closet, some bigger storage boxes with lids can help contain that clutter as well!

Since your winter boots are clean, you can move onto the storage phase for those as well! Plop them into the bottom of your winter jacket tote, get them their own tote, or even shove them in the way back of your closet to be out of sight and out of mind.

Warmer weather means it's getting close to pool season. Yay! We're going to bring a little bit of the poolside to your closet. Your dress boots are some of your most prized possessions, and they definitely deserve to be treated as such! If you're ready to store your dress boots in the closet until the leaves begin to change and the air turns crisp, here's some tips for you. Before you store them away, you'll want to make sure they're clean, just like you did with your winter boots, but the method will be a bit different this time around. Because dress boots are made from different materials than winter boots, you have to clean and treat them differently as well. The first thing you'll want to do is wipe away any dirt and pebbles that are on the surface. If you skip this step, there's a very good chance that you will scratch the leather surface. We always recommend using a leather shoe cleaner to do any actual cleaning. Leather cleaner won't do much for salt stains, but you can use a 2:1 mixture of water and vinegar to try and work those off. You can apply this with a sponge and rub until the stains are gone.

One of the common problems with any tall dress boot storage is that when they're not on your feet, they tend to flop over and that can cause unwanted and unsightly creases in the leather. One way to combat this is to purchase a set of boot forms for each pair of boots, but this can get rather costly. A DIY method would be to insert a pool noodle into the boots when you're storing them in your closet. This acts as a pretend leg, if you will, and provides support so they do not flop over. To do this, purchase pool noodles from any retailer. Once you've brought them home, stuff the noodle into the shaft of the boot until it hits the insole. Once it's all the way in, you can use a scissors or any other bladed tool to cut the noodle to size. Repeat this process with all of your tall boots. You might see a lot of blogs that suggest hanging your boots by the top of the shaft with pant hangers (the kind that have two little clips on them) inside of a closet, but we do not recommend this method, as the clips may cause scratches, gouges or other flaws to appear on a leather surface.
