Testing Out Teespring

As a blogger, we get asked to check out new websites all the time. Most of the time, the site looks promising but is a slightly altered version of a much more successful site. Teespring is genuinely an amazing one-of-a-kind website that offers a crowdfunding platform for groups, causes and communities to design and sell custom apparel. What does all that mean? Basically, you can design and sell your own shirts online with no upfront cost to you.  

How it works:

Step 1:
Design your shirt!  Choose from different styles of shirts, fabrics, fonts, and graphics to customize a shirt that is perfect for your fundraising project.
Step 2:
Set your moneymaking goals.  There is a really easy feature that lets you decide on how much money you want to make and how many shirts you need to sell to get there.  
Step 3:
You can choose a name for your campaign and write a description, sharing any info you think is important to someone buying a shirt.  You can always customize a URL and pick how long to sell your shirts.
Step 4:
Launch and share your campaign!

With other shirt ordering sites, you must guess how many of each size you will need and pay for all the shirts in advance.  Not with Teespring!  Since everyone buys their shirt online, they can get what they exactly want and are paying them directly for the shirt.  The shirts only print when you have met your sales goal(minimum of ten shirts) and you never have to deal with collecting the money on your own!

Other satisfied customers include a couple sold this "Love makes a family shirt" to raise money to adopt and another raised over 85k for Boston relief.  Overall, this is one of the best fundraising sites I have ever come across and I highly recommend it!

There are quite a few things girls love -
 Diamonds, perfume, jewelry, and shoes. 

Founded in the year 2008 in Athens, Ohio, JazzyWear is an online shoe boutique that features stylish flats, pumps and boots for women. All shoes are offered in audacious colors and styles! 

If any of you are living in the Cali area, please pay attention:  JazzyWear does SHOE PARTIES!  Yes, you heard me correctly- no more candle/food/31/etc parties.  This is amazing ... now if we only lived on the West Coast.  E-mail Jazzy at for more info on how to do this!

We picked this super cute pair of sandals to review.  They are called the  Mini Turquoise Hawaiian Sandal and were a hit.  For those of you who have been following the blog my wedding colors have changed just like the weather in this town - from one extreme to another. Finally it has been decided that it is going to be navy, shades of pinks and gold/silver- sometimes you have to Pinterest hours to figure it out.  Anyway, the blues fit perfectly with what  I wanted.

To begin with they were delivered fast!  I loved the little paper they were wrapped in when delivered - kind of like a surprise present inside that little box!

Another thing I loved is there are matching adult/children shoes!  I can just imagine the cute pictures that can be done with bridesmaids and flower girls during the reception.  Everyone kicks their heels off for flips (besides me because I am short) during the reception, so they should look cute while dancing the night away!  Plus, they are a steal - $12/$15. 

If you are looking for a unique pair of sandals or heels, check out her site.  But more importantly ... they make great presents!

One of my big things to buy ever since I was small (haha) were shoes!  Trying to find a pair of shoes in my little size 5 feet is difficult.  Combine that with trying to find a pair that is unforgettable as a wedding shoe is tremendously difficult.    I think I found a few that are amazing....  to me anyway! 

The first is from a company online called Privileged.  I love how unique they are - they are the bottom right pair!  They have glitter, high heels, spikes, and are extremely neat looking! The only problem is I have never worn a heel quite like this one ....

The third are from Ebay. They are all glitter and crystal.  The only problem is they have a pointy toe tip...

Shiekh is another brand I recently discovered.  I can honestly say I never really know where I find new brands, but they are pretty cool.  They are the two pairs at the top of the page.

Which pair do you like?

    I am always the girl that changes out of her heels at any event.  One of the first things I did after walking down the aisle was change into flats.  My feet are very flat and wearing heels is very painful for me.  I have spent years trying to find a comfortable heel but have never found one that I could wear for a long period of time.  When I first heard of Footminders Orthotics, I knew I wanted to try them!

    About Footminders Orthotics:
    "Footminders specializes in the design, manufacturing and distribution of orthotic shoe inserts designed to correct a common biomechanical imbalance known as over-pronation. Footminders USA is part of the Footlogics International Group - which was founded by Australian and Dutch podiatrists in the early 1990's, and has its head office in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 
    Our team of podiatrists and orthotists have many years of experience desigining economical orthotic devices that serve the needs of the majority of the population, providing a cost-efficient solution to the extremely common over-pronation problem that, to various degrees, affects nearly 70% of the world's population. Our thousands of satisfied customers give testimony to the quality and efficacy of our orthotics products for relieving some of the most common and uncomfortable conditions causing foot pain."
    I am going to Las Vegas next week for my brother's wedding.  I am a bridesmaid so there was no way I could get around wearing heels.  I wanted to test these out in the heels I plan to wear to the wedding.  I tried the Catwalk insoles in my heels for a full day.  They made a world of difference!  I could stand to wear the heels for hours on end with no pain.  They fully supported my arched and even improved my posture.  I am absolutely bringing these to Vegas with me!  

    The insoles come in three different styles:

    ~Comfort: Designed for lace-up shoes,athletic footwear, work boots and hiking boots
    ~Casual: Designed for men’s and women’s low-heeled slip-on shoes, including moccasins
    ~Catwalk: For ladies’ fashion footwear with medium to high heels such as pumps, sandals and boots

    I am going to buy a pair of Casual insoles when I get home from vacation.  They would be great for all the flat shoes that I have!  I recommend Footminders for anyone who wants to walk comfortably!

    Just Eyewear~Review and Giveaway!

    I have been a lifelong glasses wearer.  For the last few years, I have pretty much have the same style glasses.  I always want to try a new style but glasses are so expensive that I don't want to waste my money on a pair I may not end up liking.  I have had the same pair of glasses for the last three years and knew it was time to get some new ones.  However, I no longer have health insurance.  Paying for an eye appointment plus glasses is just out of the question right now.  The founder of Just Eyewear had the same problem as me and decided to do something about it!  

    I was really impressed with their website!  There are hundreds of frames to choose from starting at under $8!    Just Eyewear is a great option for buying glasses online. Why?  Their site points out...
    ~"Guaranteed Quality—These are high-quality, durable glasses that often come with a satisfaction guarantee; in fact, they’re the same quality of glasses you find at brick-and-mortar stores, but they are . . .
    ~Economic—Buying eyeglasses online saves you literally hundreds of dollars; same quality of product, less money—do we even need another reason to buy online? 
    ~Efficient—You have our official permission to shop for eyeglasses online in your underwear. We won’t tell (or know, thank goodness). Online you can shop anytime, anywhere—just find your frame and enter your information. It’s that easy."
    I had a hard time choosing which pair to pick.  Luckily, they have a lot of guides to help you from face shape to frame styles and more.  I ended up choosing the Derek Cardigan 7014 Black glasses.  Ordering was super easy and they have so many informative pages that it makes it really easy to find the answer to any problem you may have.  

    They fit my face great!  They are really different from my other glasses and I really like the change.  I like that I can match my glasses to what I am wearing that day.  Since the glasses are all so cheap, you can afford to play around with styles and colors.  They also have prescription sunglasses which is great! Overall, I am a fan of Just Eyewear and plan on using them the next time I buy glasses!
