Warm + Cozy Feet with DAWGS

Brrrr! It is getting cold outside. If there is one part of my body that I like to keep warm and cozy, it is my feet! If I have warm feet, I find the rest of my body adjusts and feels cozy too. So when I was asked to try DAWGS, I thought they would fit the bill perfectly.

The DAWGS 13" microfiber boot is built for comfort. The padded memory foam insole and faux shearling lining, feel cozy and warm. They also feature a durable a slip resistant rubber sole - so important when it gets wet and icy. 

I know you have seen this look on teens - but don't be afraid to rock a microfiber boot yourself! I love wearing them with leggings or skinny jeans. The 13" style even has the option of being folded over to expose the lining and give you a new look.

I wore these on my errands yesterday and my feet were nice and warm. The soft lining is the perfect barrier between your feet and the cold surroundings. It is like wrapping them up in a cozy blanket! The 13" microfiber boots come in a variety of colors too.

The memory foam insole is a nice touch as well. Although it is thin, it still gives you some support. I do wish this boot had more arch support though. The insole is very flat in these boots. I might wear them with some kind of insert for some extra arch support.

Personalized Rose Gold Necklaces

If this season were a color, it would be rose gold. The rose gold trend is everywhere - especially when it comes to jewelry. Rose gold necklaces from Onecklace make the perfect personalized gift! I had the chance to review two of them and I am so pleased with how they turned out!

The first necklace I chose is the Name Bar Necklace in rose gold. I love how intricate the lettering looks. I also have this thing for bar necklaces. So I decided this was perfect. I gave myself some blog love and decided to put alittleumbrella as the name. It turned out so cute!

I ordered it with the 20” rose gold box chain so I could layer. It is the perfect shape to be the longest necklace in a layer. The Rose Gold Name Bar Necklace is delicate, feminine, and perfect for anyone on your gift list. You can personalize it with anything, not just the person's name!

The other necklace I chose is the Slanted Initial Letter Necklace in rose gold. Monograms are everything and this necklace is just perfect for layering. I ordered this one in an 18" rose gold rolo chain. I love how the L is slanted. The quality of both necklaces is fabulous. I would recommend Onecklace to anyone!

Find personalized jewelry of all kinds for anyone on your gift list. From necklaces to rings to bracelets and so much more! Personalized gifts make your gift recipient feel special. Surprise them with rose gold (or sterling silver or gold) jewelry from Onecklace this holiday season!

How about giving a healthy skin kit to everyone on your nice list?! The Power Rescue Masque Trio features a set of Dermalogica's best-selling face masks! When the holidays (or life) take a toll on your skin, reach for a problem-solving Dermalogica face mask. This kit has a face mask for every skin care concern. They will address everything from fine lines to dehydration to dull skin. 

The lucky gift recipient could even multi-mask by applying each mask to the specific zone of your face that needs it most! This allows you to hydrate, brighten and smooth your skin, all at once! The Dermalogica Power Rescue Masque Trio includes: a Charcoal Rescue Masque, an AGE Smart MultiVitamin Power Recovery Masque, and a Skin Hydrating Masque!

The charcoal rescue masque is an all-in-one detoxifying treatment. The fast-acting, easy-to-remove masque rescues tired, lackluster, or dull skin. Activated Binchotan Charcoal powerfully adsorb impurities while Sulfur promotes cell turnover for dramatically brighter skin. This is a mask that you can feel working. You can definitely tell that you are getting a skin detox. Your skin will feel so refreshed after using!

To use: After cleansing, apply generously to face and throat, avoiding the eye area. After 7-10 minutes, lightly massage with very wet hands to enhance exfoliation properties during removal. Rinse thoroughly. 

The skin hydrating masque is a refreshing, cooling gel. Use this moisturizing masque to remedy dry, stressed skin and to help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Unique cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid traps moisture to deliver time-released hydration for lasting suppleness. Help stimulate skin's Natural Moisturizing Factor while lycopene-rich Tomato Seed lipids help restore skin's protective barrier, enhancing moisture levels for healthier, smoother skin. This will turn that dry winter skin into hydrated skin.

The multivitamin power recovery masque is a nutrient-rich rescue. This ultra-replenishing masque helps rescue stressed, aging skin. Powerful, concentrated vitamins A, C, E and F help skin recover from damage that leads to skin aging while enhancing barrier properties. Vitamin A helps increase elasticity and moisture content while antioxidant vitamins C and E help shield skin from free radicals. This will make your skin so soft and I love knowing all of those anti-aging benefits are working hard to make my skin look awesome.

To use: Apply generously to cleansed face and throat, avoiding the eye area. After 10-15 minutes, gently yet thoroughly rinse with warm water.

The Gift of a Good Night’s Sleep

There is nothing better than that perfect night of sleep. It rejuvenates the mind, body, and soul. So what could make a better gift? I was contacted by Relax Home Life to try their line of bamboo pillows. 

Made with breathable bamboo fabric, you won’t wake up in a sweat. Each Relax Home Life pillow molds and aligns to any sleep style including sleeping on your stomach, back, or side. Finding the right pillow can even help with issues like snoring, insomnia, migraines, neck and back pain and allergies.

The Shredded Memory Foam Bamboo Pillow is my favorite. Luxurious shredded memory foam technology promotes adequate air circulation, cooling comfort, and temperature regulation. As soon as your head touches it, the memory foam gets to work.

The shredded memory foam in this pillow cushions and supports the contours of your head and neck. It keeps you in a comfortable position all night long. I like this pillow because it adapts to my natural sleeping position. I tend to wake up with headaches and neck pain when I use pillows with no memory foam. This one keeps its shape and does not give me any neck pain in the morning.

My husband loves the Adjustable Shredded Down Alternative Poly Fill Pillow. He likes it because you can add or remove the fill and adjust it to your comfort. It arrived a bit too firm for his liking. So he just took some of the fill out and found the just right amount for him. 

Both of these bamboo pillows are soft to the touch and super comfortable to sleep on. The soft bamboo cover keeps your head nice and cool. It is so soft you almost hate to cover it with a pillow case! Luckily it is machine washable in case you decide to keep it on.

Gourmet caramel apples from Mrs. Prindables are a tradition in my home. There is nothing like them.

They are so delicious!
