Our Back To School #CartersOshKosh Fashion Picks + Enter To Win a $500 Gift Card!

When my son was a baby the majority of his wardrobe was from Carter’s. OshKosh B’ gosh; he was a stylin’ little dude. He obviously didn’t care if his socks matched his overalls or if his onesies had cute sayings on them, but I did. He was my pride and joy and dressing him up in cuddly outfits made me swoon. Thirteen years later his socks no longer match his pants. In fact, they rarely match each other. This man-child doesn’t give a care about fashion and heaven forbid I should lay out a super cute outfit like one of these for him to wear… So thank goodness for my fashion-loving daughter. She loves dressing up. Hair accessories, purses and bracelets, dresses, cute t-shirts and pretty sparkly shoes…she adores all of it. A few weeks ago, before I even knew I’d be writing this post, we popped into the Carter’s | OshKosh store near our house. We needed tall socks for “Crazy Sock Day” at Avery’s bicycle camp and I knew I’d be able find what I needed. Neon star and polka dot socks in hand, we browsed for a bit. My son was with us and I felt a sudden[…]

Make A Wish From The Heart…

As a kid, I went berserk for Barbie. I had the clothes, the camper, multiple Kens…mmmmm, multiple Kens… And now *a few* years later my daughter Avery is playing “Barbies.” Sadly, I didn’t hang on to any of my Barbies (I gave them to a younger neighbour). It’s probably for the best—most of my dolls were bald-ish after I attempted and failed to master the “Dorothy Hamill” haircut. Not only do Avery and I love to play with Barbies, Avery has her own “Barbie My Dreams” account. This post isn’t about that, but I’m sharing because hello… 1. Barbie! 2. It’s free fun. 3. You can play with Barbie clothes and watch the latest “Life in the Dreamhouse” episodes (Hilarious. Seriously Ken?  Him on his proximity to cuteness~> “I suffer from ‘Hyper Cuteness Sensitivity Disorder‘. Whenever I’m in close proximity to something adorable I, well….faint. It’s quite common.” Hahaha! Also, “Schlond poofda!”). You can also play games, download ebooks & printables, etc. http://www.barbie.com/en-ca/promo/barbie-my-dreams 4. It’s like Pinterest, but Barbie. If you love Barbie or know a kid who does, you’re still reading. If you’re my husband, you’ve already bailed and clicked over to TSN to watch football. I’m so confident[…]

Giving Old Skin The Boot — Tana Loves Shoes

  My poor neglected boots… You thought I was talking about my 40-something skin? That’s okay. My skin is starting to resemble a potato, but it has to do with hormones and over-tanning in the 80s. My leather boots have also seen better days—but due to harsh Canadian winters and dehydration. Like our skin, leather boots (and shoes, purses and belts for that matter) need cleaning and moisturizing. My husband shakes his head at how much money I’m willing to spend on a pair of boots. Take the classic Frye boots I’m saving for—my family might have to eat baked beans for awhile, but these boots will be an integral part of my wardrobe for many years to come. So I need to protect them or my family will give me the boot. So to speak. My current foot faves are these browny-grey Fossil boots. I’ve had them for three years and they’re starting to show their age. Why yes, I AM aware these descriptors also describe the boot wearer. Ha, ha, sob. A little TLC up front would have helped to preserve them, but thankfully there are ways to bring them back to life. Following in his father’s footsteps[…]
