lugz-drifter-mid-boot-giveaway-hgg2017

Lugz is a great shoe company, that offers good quality shoes..

About Lugz

Always an innovator and leader in footwear, Lugz first made a name for itself in October of 1993, bringing its first line of boots to market, with the initial product consisting of two styles of boots, a quilted vest and a pair of jeans.

Soon Lugz was endorsed by key players from the world of hip hop and has continued to do so through out the years. One such collaboration led Lugz to breathe life to a whole new category of footwear with the introduction of the first ever celebrity-endorsed “Funk Master Flex” urban driving shoe. This was only the beginning as support then lead to a collaborative line with hip-hop superstar Bryan “Baby” Williams, aka “Birdman” with his own series of sneakers and boots.

From its inception, Lugz footwear has been an innovator in the footwear market from its signature styles, to creating trendsetting styles beyond boots and has added casual shoes and athletics to the mix for the Lugz men, Lugz women and Lugz kids lines.

Drifter Mid Boot

The Men’s Drifter Mid ST is a stylish classic work boot designed to keep your feet feeling great all day. This boot features a water resistant upper, steel toe for maximum protection, classic Lugz hardware on speed hooks and logo, a flexastride molded memory foam insole for maximum comfort and durable rubber outsole.

DETAILS:

  • Thermabuck water resistent upper
  • Steel toe for maximum protection
  • Flexastride molded memory foam insole
  • Classic Lugz hardware on logo and speed hooks
  • Durable rubber outsole

My Thoughts

We are always in need of a good shoe that will hold up. My son is very rough on shoes and boots, not to mention the selection is usually very slim due to his size 15 pontoons. Lugz had the perfect boot for him, and he is in love! We ordered the size 15, and as with any online purchase, they may or may not fit correctly. It’s a chance you take. I’m happy to say that these fit perfect! He absolutely loves them and he really loves the insole. It’s a nice memory foam one, and this is great because he usually has us buy the insoles to put into his shoes. He says that these are super comfortable, and he doesn’t need us to buy any insoles.

They are very well made and easy for him to get on and off. They have a steel toe, which is perfect for when he is helping with yard work and such. Due to an accident that my husband had a couple of years ago, my son is terrified to be outside helping with mowing. With these boots, I do believe his fears will be eased. They are very sturdy, and he has been wearing them for a couple of weeks now, without any issue. like I said previously, he is very hard on shoes and boots, and has killed new shoes within a few weeks before. That isn’t the case with these. They are built to withstand whatever he throws at them.

Lugz has offered a giveaway of a pair of these awesome boots! Just follow the widget below to enter! The giveaway will be open until 12/13/17.

My Thoughts

This is a great family movie for the holidays. It has a great story line, and kept our attention throughout the whole movie. It shows a great example of how to work for what you want. Little Mariah had to prove herself, so that she could get what she wanted for Christmas. It is very well written, and easy to follow along. Even though my kiddos are teens, it was still interesting to them, and I have a feeling we will be watching this several more times!

portrait-innovations-experience-hgg2017-giveaway

Thanks to Portrait Innovations, my family had the pleasure of getting our family pictures taken. I am completely in love with them!

About Portrait Innovations

At Portrait Innovations, we’ve reinvented the professional portrait studio experience at our over 100 studios throughout the U.S.

While our process is high tech, our beliefs remain simple.  We feel every customer should be treated as an honored guest and given the highest level of respect and courtesy.  We understand that our customers value the importance of capturing and sharing online, cherished family and personal memories, events and milestones and we feel honored to be the one selected to capture those memories.

Our Experience

Our experience was a great one! We arrived to the location in Carmel, Indiana on November 11. When we walked in, we were immediately greeted. Even though the photographers were with other families, they took turns greeting those who walked in. The whole time we were there, I never once saw anyone not be acknowledged. Our photographer let us know that it would be just a few minutes, while she finished up with the family she was with.

We had a seat while we waited, which gave me some time to observe. I noticed that the photographers never once made anyone feel rushed. They didn’t hurry them along, just to get to the next appointment. They made it personal for them, and kept their focus where it needed to be. While they did attempt to upsell to the families, they didn’t make them feel bad if they chose not to purchase something additional. They were very polite in this manner. I like that!

While we waited, there was an incident. A family came in extremely late for their appointment, and were told that due to this, they would have to reschedule, or they could have a seat and wait to see if they could work them in. The family was not happy with this, and kept insisting that they were being skipped over on purpose. This could have went very badly, but the photographer kept a level head, and a polite tone in her voice. She handled it with grace, and ease. She smoothed any tensions, and in the end, the family understood why they had to reschedule/wait. I was very impressed with how it was handled. It was very professional, and no raised voices were heard.

After waiting a short time, it was our turn to get our pictures taken. YAY!! I was excited because it had been about 3 or so years. Yeah, we were behind..haha. The photographer asked us what we had in mind. I really liked that, because in the past other photographers just took over and said we will do this, this and that. We did some holiday backgrounds, and the photographer didn’t make a fuss when I asked to do an American Flag background for my son. She happily accommodated! She took all of our requests and made them happen. She was super polite, and an awesome photographer!

After getting the shots, we went to a computer to make the tough decision of what to keep. I never knew it would be so hard! The photos were all so great!  We finally made our decisions, and chose some greeting cards. We were told it would take around 30-45 minutes for the pictures to print, so we went and shopped until time.

When we got there to pick the photos up, she had us check them all out to make sure they were up to our standards. She took great care in packaging the greeting cards, placing envelopes in front of them and in back of them, to protect the cards. Everything was perfect! We were even able to download the app for our phone to be able to view our photos and share them online!

We had an absolutely wonderful experience, and this is definitely going to be our go-to place for photos!!

GIVEAWAY!!!

Portrait Innovations has been generous enough to offer a package for a giveaway! The winner will receive:

6 Pose Portrait Package (6 poses,2 sheets of each pose)
2 10X13 Decortive Photo Sheets
20 Greeting Cards
CD of portraits

jord-watches-100-credit-giveaway

Jord has the most amazing wooden timepieces! They are sleek, elegant, and just beautiful!

About Jord Watches

JORD is run by artists, designers, marketers, and minders. We spend our days creating, considering, arguing, and hopefully agreeing. Then we’ll scrap it all for the joy of starting new. We have fun. This is our journey.


Ladies Wood Watch

We are focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle. We value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. We make our watches for people who don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go.

The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.

About Fieldcrest Series Dark Sandalwaood

We grew up on tree lined streets with slow driving cars, and plenty of friends to play on the pavement with. No matter the season, the weather was always perfect and the sun always went down too soon. Life is good. Life is simple. No need for the bells and whistles. Just like our Fieldcrest Series. Magnify your personal style with the depth of color in the dark sandalwood; a true compliment to all skin tones.

  • scratch-resistant mineral glass
  • deployment buckle with push buttons
  • case width: 39mm
  • case thickness: 11mm
  • lug ends: 49mm
  • band thickness: 20mm
  • band length: 195mm

 The natural dark sandalwood is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils. The Fieldcrest is splash-proof but should not be submerged in water (3 ATM). Lemon or orange oil extract is best for cleaning the natural wood. When storing this timepiece, avoid extremely hot, cold, and excessively dry/humid environments.

Wood Watches by JORD

My Thoughts

My son is absolutely in love with this watch! The first thing that we loved is that they use measurements to send you the best fit.They don’t just send you a watch and make you adjust it. No, instead it is tailored to you. It’s a very simple process, and includes printing out a paper, cutting out the measuring strip, and measuring your wrist. It takes less than 5 minutes. To me, that is no time at all for a great fitting watch!

When the watch arrived, my son was in awe. It arrived in a beautiful wooden box. It has a sliding lid on it, and the watch is nestled on a pillow inside. The watch was definitely packaged with care. Inside the box was also a cleaning cloth and wood preserver.

The watch itself is crafted with great care. The wood is gorgeous, dark sandalwood. The face is quite elegant and looks amazing when wearing it.  My son said that it fits very well, and it’s not heavy on his wrist at all. He is very impressed with this watch!

rudolphs-favorite-wreath-from-christmas-forest-hgg2017-giveaway

Christmas Forest has the most amazing wreaths!

About Christmas Forest

Rick and Ramona Holt sold their first Christmas wreath at Pike Place Farmer’s Market in Seattle in 1976. Rick was working in construction and Ramona was a piano teacher at the time. Looking for extra Christmas money to buy Christmas gifts, they harvested cedar boughs to sell to a local nursery. When the owner of the nursery said that he didn’t need the branches after all, the Holts decided to try their hand at making and selling wreaths so the boughs would not be wasted. They worked all night making wreaths and the next morning they sold their first Christmas wreath in Seattle, Washington. That was 40 years ago and now the wreaths of Christmas Forest have decorated thousands of doors around the world.

 

About Rudolph’s Favorite Wreath

When he’s not guiding Santa’s sleigh, Rudolph is delighting in one of our most whimsical Christmas wreaths. The fresh scent of the Cascade forest”s Noble Fir combines with the ruby red trinkets, dazzling gold pine cones and designer bow to create a wreath that will be one of your favorites, too!

 

  • 20″ in diameter
  • Silky bow with Christmas patterns and lots of ornaments too
  • Forest Fresh
  • Free shipping to Continental US via UPS Ground

My Thoughts

This is my second year getting a wreath from Christmas Forest. I absolutely adore them! I love the smell of fresh pine, and it looks beautiful on my door.  It arrived via UPS, and was super fresh. When I opened the box, I could smell the freshness! They send the bow with it, but you put it on yourself, which I like because I can place it where I want it. It hangs very easily with an inexpensive wreath hanger.

I should warn you. If you are looking for a wreath to only last a month or so, this is not the wreath for you! These last a long while! Last year, I hung it on November 3rd or 4th, and didn’t take it down until the middle of January!

The quality of these wreaths is amazing! They are very well made, and nothing falls off. It all stays put just like it should. We obviously open and close our front door about a million times a day, it seems. never once has any piece fallen off of the wreath. I am super impressed!

They have a huge selection, so you are sure to find something that you love. It was very hard to choose just one, because they are all so beautiful! Christmas Forest has graciously offered one of Rudolph’s Favorite wreaths for a giveaway!! Yay!!! Just click below to eneter:

DETAILS:

  • Water Resistant Crinkle Permahide Upper
  • Padded tongue and collar
  • Flexastride molded memory foam insole
  • ASTM-F1677, Mark II tested slip resistant rubber sole
  • $84.99

My Thoughts

This is my first pair of boots. Yes, I’ve had snow boots before, but they were always the pull on/velcro type. This is my first pair of grown up, adult boots. I am in love!

I didn’t expect them to be comfortable, but they are. They have a memory foam insole, making them extremely easy to wear all day. The laces are just the right length, and not too long. I love the color of these boots, too! They are so iridescent, and beautiful. They are kind of like Mermaid boots..haha. With the coloring of these boots, I can wear them with almost anything. They have a great fit, and aren’t too tight.

The bottoms of these boots are non-slip. This is the best thing ever, because anyone who knows me, knows that I am a klutz. If there is ice, or water, I am going to slip. These non-slip soles are a beautiful white color, and match perfectly with the coloring of the boots. But better than matching.. the non-slip feature WORKS!  Yes, I wore them in water to test the theory..haha. I had to know what to expect.

Overall, I adore these boots! They are going to get so much wear this fall and winter. They are unlike any other shoes I’ve owned, and I’m excited to wear them!

balm-shot-lip-balm-giveaway

Do you want long lasting lip balm, that not only works great, but looks awesome? Check out Balm Shot!

lip balm

About Balm Shot

Wayne S. Forrey, the company’s founder and product inventor, contracted lip cancer in 1983 due to his outdoor lifestyle and frequent sunburned lips. After successful lip reconstruction surgery, he began using lip balm everyday to protect and moisturize his lips. Wayne became dissatisfied with industry standard lip balm dispensers because the knurled disk base would twist and rotate in his pants pockets…thereby mashing the balm into the cap…making a gooey mess. Many people told Wayne they experienced the exact same gooey mess. To solve this problem, Wayne went to his garage and invented a much better lip balm dispenser system including a firmer twist base and tighter fitting cap. BALMSHOT was the result of this innovative effort, and a new Idaho company was born in 2010.

Giving

Our charitable giving focus is fighting breast cancer. We are an annual sponsor of the Shoot for a Cure event to fight breast cancer. Proceeds from the sale of every Pure Pink and Pink Camo BALMSHOT product are donated quarterly to the Mountain States Tumor Institute to help uninsured women pay for mammograms and breast cancer screenings.

lip balm

My Thoughts

These are the neatest looking lip balms ever! I love the shotgun shell look, and so does my son. They are each different, so you can easily tell them apart. They twist up easily, and if one gets a bit lose, you can use an allen wrench to tighten it back up! The flavors are awesome, and I use them all, except the plain on. My son snagged that one..haha. My favorite flavor is the vanilla mint. It also happens to be the one that benefits breast cancer. The price point is great, with the price of the six pack, that include 5 balms and a breath spray, costing just $23.99. it also comes with a cute little bag that can be used to keep your balms, and is big enough to add a few other things you might need.

My Thoughts

Honestly, I didn’t know  what to expect. Most of the time when ordering shoes on the internet, you don’t get what you are expecting. When these shoes came from Lugz, I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were exactly as they should be! The fit is great, and the comfort level is off the charts! I love the black/gum style, as it reminds me of shoes from when I grew up. These shoes are very stylish and go well with pretty much any clothing worn. They can be worn with or without socks, without any discomfort. These are very budget friendly, only costing around $40. There are other colors you can choose from, not just the black/gum. Lugz has really made a lasting impression on me and my family, and have exceeded our expectations!

Giveaway!

Who’s ready for a giveaway? Lugz has generously offered up a pair of the Seabrook shoes for 1 lucky winner! Just follow the widget instructions below, and good luck! Giveaway starts now, and ends at NOON EST on Sunday June 18!
