Look Official, Be Official - IT's HERE!

It’s HERE!! It’s finally here!
April: my birthday AND the opening of baseball season
A moment of silence please in honor of the best sporting season on Earth…
If you’re thinking you’ve missed an opportunity to send a birthday gift, do not fret! In our house we celebrate the birth MONTH. That means you have the entire month to send me something along the lines of a customized baseball jersey. Ordering from Majestic Apparel is quick, easy and straight forward with hundreds of options for all the baseball fans in your life. Just add an extra team jersey for me!
Maybe Major League Baseball doesn’t quite tickle your feathers like it does mine. Majestic Apparel is not only known for producing official game jerseys and workout gear for major league teams, you can also find quality apparel for other professional sports teams including your favorite college! If you’re not decking yourself or your mate out for the spring season, stock up for the Fall when you’ll be kicking your offspring out the door to their college homes.
I do realize there is an off chance that no sport of any kind is really on your radar (although baseball really should. It’s THE American thing after all). If such is the case, you can find a full line of workout apparel for men and the boys in your life! And even NFL gear and general sports gear is an option here.
Majestic Apparel is the perfect go-to for outfitting your little spring soccer player or T-ball hero. Majestic Apparel can even take you from the cubicle life straight to the golfing greens with the perfect customizable polo. Sport your own logo or that of your favorite city knowing that it has all proudly been made in the US of A!
However you decide to dress, or not, be sure to get outdoors, enjoy the sunshine, and keep moving! And remember you have the remainder of the month to send birthday gifts!

THE Place For Jeans!

How are your New Year’s Resolutions coming along?
Do you even remember them? Are you among the few us of whom at 82 days into 2015 are still sticking with them? I am, and part of that reason is rewards. I don’t food reward because that would really be counterproductive (most of the time *wink wink*). I prefer to reward with massages, pedicures and clothing!
With the seasons changing, or on the horizon for changing, it will quickly be time to switch from your winter wardrobe to your spring and summer. Along with wardrobe changes, those of us with our fitness goals still in sight are likely seeing body changes that naturally translate into the need to shop.
NYDJ is a great place to start. I love the ease of shopping online and not needing to drive all over town to find what I am looking for. If you choose NYDJ, register with your email and receive 10% off the top, which is a great way to begin! Everyone loves saving money!
Specializing in jeans for women, NYDJ covers a very wide range of denim styles such as wide leg jeans, tall jeans, trouser jeans, plus size skinny jeans and stretch skinny jeans to name only a few! And should you happen to have long ago discarded your Resolutions list worry not! NYDJ features an amazing slimming technology called Lift Tuck Technology. They even suggest you order a size smaller than what you normally wear.
Do I hear wine glasses clinking? A size smaller!
I am absolutely looking forward to trying a pair of their super skinny jeans. For the most part I abhor shopping for denim. I can never find all the aspects of a good fit in just one pair. If the legs fit, the waist band gaps horribly (such the conundrum of those possessing some junk in the trunk) and if the waist fits then likely my legs will bust the seams. Tossing a She Squats tshirt over the ripped seams just doesn’t work, especially now that I’m in my mid-thirties (let’s all pretend I didn’t actually admit that out loud).
Goals or no goals, resolutions or not, it’s time to shop!

The Swell: Essential Summer Gear


With an active lifestyle comes the need for a wardrobe that transitions with you. Who really has the time, trunk space, and ease of changing shes every time your scenery changes during the day. For those of us that don't work a desk job and are on the go, this is an awesome find!

I am all for products that can be used across all areas of my life. Versatility makes my heart happy. Combine versatility with shoes, style and toss in comfort? I'm over the moon!

On your next lunch break, be sure to check out Reef shoes and apparel with their new Swellular Technology. This should be at the top of your "Its SPRING!" to-do list.  Fortunately they have options for everyone in the family as well. A one stop shop from the convenience of your smartphone, tablet, Ipad or laptop! You don't even have to leave the beach. Are you excited? I am!

The Rover Shoes and sandals have caught my eye. With awesome color choices, its easy to take a little bit of the beach into the office with you! These Reef Shaded Summer are my favorite pair....

I'm also having great difficulty with picking out a reasonable number of sandals to add to my summer wardrobe. Sandals aren't always known for both comfort and style, but Reef merges those elements seamlessly! Picking a favorite from the Girls line was nearly impossible. I'm not entirely sure that I didn't somehow agree to one of each pair appearing in my daughter's closet this summer.

Producing high quality sandals and surf apparel perfect for your life, you can feel good knowing your purchase is from a company who holds customer service standards high as well as making creating Eco-friendly products a priority. Both are important considerations in my book.

While you are existing in the realm of the people with the coolest gear and your feet are loving you for it, join the hundreds on social media sharing their Reef experiences. Add your photo to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #JUSTPASSINGTHROUGH. I'm looking forward to seeing your contributions!
