For review, I was sent the Ohuhu® Heavy Duty Gullwing Drying Rack,*. This drying rack is made with rust proof stainless steel and light blue plastic. It features two adjustable side wings and a number of drying options and arrangements.

Here is the review I posted to Amazon;

“While I hadn’t previously been interested in drying racks, with my recent move to Seattle, I knew I would be needing a drying rack of my own. And I’m quite please to have been chosen to review this one! I prefer it to the drying rack I’d been using at ‘home’.

I find that this drying rack as a number of places to hang various items and a number of options for me to choose from. It has places to dry shoes on the bottle, hang shirts on the top, enough room to lay items flat. I haven’t actually had to use it yet to dry clothes, but I’m looking forward to it. I tried it out with some dry clothes to see what I could fit and was glad to find it quite spacious.

Overall, I light this drying rack. I like the materials it’s made from and its color. I quite like that it folds up conveniently enough to stow away behind my bedroom door where it’s out of sight and out of the way until I need it again. I would recommend this drying rack to anything looking for one.”

Dry your own clothes!

Review: Syono Gel Insoles for Shoes

Syono Gel Insoles for Shoes Detail | maegal.blogspot.com

For review, I was went a pair of Syono Gel Insoles for Shoes. These insoles comes larger than needed so they can be cut down to size for any favorite shoes you may have. The shoes have a soft fabric over a nice, gel base that’s extra comfortable on the pressure points of your feet. Continue on to read my review…

Syono Gel Insoles for Shoes | maegal.blogspot.com

While most of my day is spent sitting at the desk at my office or my desk at home, I do have do some walking still. I thought about putting these insoles in a pair of heeled boots I have, but it seemed a bit too hard for me to get the insoles in place (given the long legs of the boots).

Instead, I decided to put the insoles in a pair of flats I’ve had for a while. They never had much of an insole to begin with, but over time they have become very thin. In fact, I once stepped on a sharp rock and it poked right through the sole of my flat and stabbed me! Hence, it must be time to have a thicker, more comfortable sole.

Above is an image of the back of the insoles packaging, for your reading pleasure. These insoles, as you can read, are designed not only for the comfort of your fees, but also to help align your body for reduced stress in your knees and lower body. 

Overall, I’m pleased with this insoles. I don’t have much to compare them too as I’ve never used insoles, but I had a pleasant first experience with them. I was able to easily cut them down to size to place them in my flats. I’ve only worn those shoes once since adding the insoles (so many rainy, boot days!). However, my feet were comfortable and happy the day I did wear them.

3 Holiday Clothing Gift Ideas for Kids from TeaCollection {Sponsored Post}

Kids aren’t always easy to shop for, but these three clothing ideas always make for a great gift for boys or girls. I know I always loved getting clothes as a kid, even though people often joke about how kids could care less about new clothes. I always like mine! Continue on to see my three ideas…

1. Pajamas

Who doesn’t love pajamas?! I know in many families, part of the holidays season tradition is receiving a new pair of pajamas. That wasn’t the case in my family, but many years my sister and I did receive matching pajamas from our grandmother.
Wegfliegen Pajamas*
Eisbar Pajamas*

2. Outerwear

Outerwear is always a good buy, at least around where I live here in Washington. The weather is constantly changing and layers are a necessity. Vest are a great option for a bit warmer winter weather for kids. Vests keep you warm while stilling giving your arms plently of room to move an play.

3. Shoes

Shoes are again one of those things that you can never really have too many of. Kids are always growing so fast, you never know when you’re going to see another pair of bigger shoes! Plus, how cute are these two?

How to Layer with Tanks and Singlets {Guest Post}

I know I have plenty of readers who enjoy fashion, and a mens fashion post seems appropriate given this gift buying season we’re in right now. I hope you all enjoy this post. 
– – – – –
layer with tank tops and singlets

What’s the one thing you notice about men in every magazine ad? No, not their perfect haircuts or groomed facial hair of the gods, though that’s pretty abundant as well.

All the male models are dressed the same way- in layers. Jackets over scarves over tees, flannel over tanks, sweaters over button-ups. They’re trying to tell you something, guys. It’s the key to dressing well and impressing all the ladies: layering.

But there’s a catch. You’ve got to do it right; otherwise, you’ll look like a well-dressed hobo.

How can you guarantee your layered style will be just as cool as it looks on TV and in magazines? Not to worry– it’s not difficult to layer properly as long as you keep these three tips in mind.

Singlets and tank tops are your friends.

Mens tank tops are the key to any good layered look, providing the simple foundation needed for the style. These are the easiest tops to wear when your intent is to pile other clothes on top. 

Ever get your sleeves all bunched up uncomfortably when you try to pull on a cardigan or a tight jacket over a long-sleeved tee or a flannel shirt? You can easily stop this frustrating spectacle by replacing those long-sleeved tops with singlets and tanks.

In order to rock this look, get creative. Find your favorite outerwear and match it to the cool designs of some casualwear tank tops.

Try paring a tank under some stylish fall sweaters or wear a flannel shirt unbuttoned over a singlet. You’ll look like you just walked out of the pages of a magazine.

Keep the excess to a minimum.

You know that watch you love to wear, the one you feel naked without? Keep it at home! Your clothes are going to be doing so much for you that anything else will take away from the look. 

That means shoes too! We know you love your stylish shoes and that you secretly have a wider collection than your girlfriend, but you’ve got to go with some simple kicks when you’re trying to get the layered look just right.

Pairing your layered clothes with nice shoes and a watch and a scarf- it all ends up being too much at once. The enthusiasm is great, but start with baby steps. Be careful of the weather.

Here’s a huge layering no-no: putting on too many layers of clothes in when it’s not weather appropriate. That doesn’t mean you can’t rock layers in the summer, it just means that you’re going to be sweating atrociously if you choose a thick jacket to be a part of your style at that time of the year.

Stick to lightweight layering in the warmer months, maybe just a simple tank under a light jacket or a singlet under a thin button-up shirt. Otherwise, you’ll be sweaty and uncomfortable no matter how cool you look.

To improve your layering efforts by buying singlets online, hop on over to Two Square Clothing.
