Insulated Lunch Tote at Tales by the Sea

Are you ready for Back to School time?

Do you remember what your favorite subject was in school?  When I was asked that question, the reply was swift.  I would proudly announce: "LUNCH!"

Giggles aside, I loved lunch because I could socialize with my peeps. {not much has changed} I attended a Catholic elementary school just outside of New Orleans, Louisiana and I'm 100% sure that the nuns and teacher would agree with my announcement. 

I loved to chit chat and visit.  After all, in the strict environment, lunch was the only time we could speak it seemed.  I also enjoyed seeing what everyone else had packed in their lunch box.  Lunch would surely have been more enjoyable if my mom had packed my tasty treats in one of Tales by the Sea's adorable insulated lunch totes shown here. {my lunch was packed in a plain brown sandwich bag. ewwww. ha!} I would have picked the lime green one and had my name in all lower case letters monogrammed across it in hot pink!  Yes, that is what I would have picked. 

Now that I am a working girl, I would likely pick the same bag, only I would monogram it in chocolate brown. 

The super-cool thing about these lunch totes is that they are insulated for hot or cold items.  Love it! 

With my elementary school days behind me, I'm left to wonder today...whatever happened to the girls I sat with?  I wonder who they sit and eat lunch with these days?  Children, office mates or hubbies?  Those WERE the days.

Hop into SPRING with this Sassy Shoe!

Although the blossoms on the trees are still tightly closed as buds, I am ready to burst into Spring. If you need a "spring" in your step to fight off the winter blues...then this shoe is for you! {{giggles}} The options that this one pair of shoes offers, is astounding. The shoe itself is a base, whose "top" can be popped right off to add another fun, festive "topper!" Hence the name, Convertible! (you you pop the top off your car to make it a convertible} Can't you just picture yourself in a darling little sundress with this pair of flower adorned shoes?
In addition to the floral topper options, this travel topper set is a must for jet setters. It adds sophistication and simplicity to your travel wardrobe. Regardless of what color outfit you wear, you KNOW your shoes will match by just popping on a dazzling colored topper. The leopard skin topper, shown at far right, is consistently a best seller.
If bling is your thing...then this topper, that we affectionately call the "uptown girl" is what you need. It has chunky chocolate brown stones adorned with clear rhinestones. Stunningly perfect for a night out on the town.
Stylishly affordable and practical are the two terms that clients most often utter when they slip on these sassy shoes. True comfort that will take you from the jet way to the runway. The starter set shown above is how the shoes arrive. You will also receive a plain set of toppers free in addition to the bling topper shown for only $79.99. If that doesn't put a spring in your step---then perhaps you need to thaw out a little more before you shop. Waiting to order is highly discouraged as this best selling item will sell doubt.

Sweet Gifts for Valentine's Day!

I'm totally in LOVE!
It was really love at first sight...the second I saw this fabulous set my client ordered ...I knew we had to be together.
I immediately ordered a set of these plush terry cloth towels for my powder room. This customer ordered white and black as pictured. I ordered white towels with a rich mocha brown monogram! The towel set looks fabulous hanging on my towel rack.
The soap set I ordered was the fresh linen and had a single large initial engraved on each bar. I placed the 3 engraved soaps on a silver tray just like this photo.
If you are looking for an inexpensive way to "fancy" up your powder room---copy this idea. It really adds a touch of glamour to a rather ordinary room.
Towels can be done in fun colors for kids bathrooms, too. Select from Lime Green, Hot Pink, Teal Blue, Chocolate Brown or White towels. Add a whimsical design and your child's name.
For kids' bathrooms we suggest ordering the pink or lime green soap to coordinate.
Ain't love grand? It is when you find some fabulous and affordable.
