Lugz Empire HI SP Boots Review

We received a sample in exchange for a honest an unbiased review.

We had the recent opportunity to facilitate a review for the Empire HI SP boots from Lugz.



My son spends most of his work day on his feet, so a good pair of boots is essential. After complaining about not getting enough support and having aching feet everyday, I decided he needed to give the Lugz a go. We have always been Lugz lovers and he was quite happy to be trying them out.

After a week I asked my son if he was breaking into the Lugz nicely. He said he was, that even the couple days of breaking into his new boots were more comfortable than the previous pair he had owned.


My son really liked that the boots have a memory foam insole that provides comfort and stability for hours. The boots have a nice deep tread that is slip resistant and keep his feet dry. The boots are sturdy and provide the ankle support he wasn't getting from his old boots.

These Empire HI SP boots from Lugz features a patented Flexastride memory foam technology. They have been tested to be slip resistant as well as scuff resistant. Their made from high quality material that will withstand any outdoor conditions year round.


After wearing the Lugz Empires my son is sure he's found his permanent work boot, and is certain that these will last a long time. Not only are they comfortable, he works 8 and 10 hour days, they are stylish as well. He can leave work and meet up with his wife with only a change of shirt. It's always nice when you don't have to give up style for comfort. It's also nice that you can get these high quality sturdy boots at prices that are affordable.

Lugz was created in October of 1993. They were eventually endorsed by key players from the world of hip hop. Products from Lugz are styled using the highest and most durable construction.

Today Lugz has expanded beyond the boots, they have added casual shoes, sandals and athletics to their mix.

If your having the snow and the slush we are having in our part of the world, you will definitely want to check into a great pair of boots. Head over to Lugz they have great footwear for the whole family!

Have A New Look At Uniik Stuff

Can you believe it's 2016, and we are already almost through the first month! I hope everyone has had a wonderful start of the new year. Speaking of a wonderful start of the new year, how about a little shopping for delightfully different products at affordable prices? That's my kind of wonderful beginning to a brand new year!


Uniik Stuff is a great affordable store online that offers unique, distinct, desirable and high value items from all over the world at affordable prices. The unique and creative items they offer can not be obtained in usual shopping outlets. They just redid their Web store and it looks great!


If you have a love for unique and vintage products you should head over and take a look-see you will not be disappointed. They have terrific products for Birthday parties, and other events. If you are a crafter, they have the cutest paper straws in striking colors and different patterns. I really like the aqua polka dot paper straws and would love to do project with them at some point. They would make a wonderful addition to any and all parties.

Uniik Stuff offers children's items such as backpacks, lunch bags and jewelry. They also have jewelry for adults floating necklaces, charmed bracelets. One of my favorite products from Uniik Stuff is their pillow covers. I would like to update my couch pillows with some soon.

I could probably go on and on about their wonderful products, they have a great selection of vintage jewelry among other great useful and unique items.


Uniik Stuff was created by a mother and daughter team. Yolindi and Teresa moved here from South Africa over 20 years ago. They fell in love with their newly adopted land and the entrepreneurial and "can do" spirit across this great nation.

They're not a huge corporation they are a fun loving team doing what they love to do their customers are special to them and treated as part of their venture. They endeavor to maintain excellent relationships. They're attentive to the needs of their customers. If you need ideas for gifts or parties or need more details about their products give them a call they love to chat.

Check out their blog they have great ideas about using their products. Recently they shared a wonderful post about supporting spread a smile. Spread a smile is dedicated to improving the time spent by seriously ill children and teenagers in the hospitals. Unique stuff was pleased to support this worthy cause and donated over 300 straws.

Head up over there and think Valentine's Day gifts their products are different, cute and affordable.

Breastfeeding in Public

Providing My Son with the Healthiest Start I Can




I still advocate about breastfeeding wherever I see a need, although, I haven't breastfed in over two years, until last month. Mason was born in December so I haven't been out in public that much. Having had a c-section, the cold, wind etc (we live in NYS) it is easier to stay in. It has been seven weeks with little interaction with the outside world and I have already came across the reason I started breast feeding in public with such boldness. I was a little timid about it the first month or so then it became second nature. Shortly after that I found my place in the breastfeeding world. It was to help normalize what is natural and help other women feel comfortable breastfeeding, in general and in public.

I have no problem breastfeeding any where now. No mom should. When I hear or read the rude and derogatory things people tell other breastfeeding mom's I get angry, so darn angry! I had forgotten how rude and or ignorant some people can be. The word 'ignorant' has not, by definition, been changed. It still means: Destitute of knowledge; uninstructed or uninformed; untaught; unenlightened. Therefore, why must people continue to get upset when someone tells them they are ignorant of the subject of breastfeeding and should not be arguing against it? Only meaning they do not know enough about the subject to debate it. The definition of breast feed is: To feed a baby from a mother's breast. At least everyone can agree to that. 

I have great admiration for Actress Alyssa Milano. She took a stand for her pro breast feeding and pro breastfeeding in public beliefs. Yes, many other great woman have also and they are all truly remarkable. I am writing of Alyssa Milano because as an actress she has a large audience. Her speaking can be spread among many.  Below is a link to a page with a video she did on the air with Wendy Williams (whom was not a fan of Alyssa's beliefs) on "The Wendy Williams Show."

Alyssa Milano defends public breastfeeding to Wendy Williams .

Actress Alyssa Milano: "They were not made for sexual things" In a magazine she stated "Normalizing breastfeeding will be a lot more effective in advancing women’s issues and desexualizing breasts," Milano said. "Yes, they’re pretty. And yes, they have a purpose in women’s sexuality. But their main purpose is to feed another human." YAY Alyssa!

This was taken at the Chinese Restaurant




My own brother said "Breastfeeding in public is disgusting and should be considered sexual harassment." I wasn't personally offended, although, I do think he should take the time to learn about the subject and understand what he said was wrong. Breastfeeding your child is the natural way, the healthiest way.


What are your thoughts about breastfeeding? Breastfeeding in public?

The Crocodile Dentist from Winning Moves Games Review

We received a sample in exchange for a honest an unbiased review.

We had the opportunity to facilitate a review for Crocodile Dentist from Winning Moves.

Our four year old grandson often gets discouraged because most of our games are too old for him to play. So, I have been looking into getting more games for his age group. His new favorite is from Winning Moves, it's called Crocodile Dentist.



When we first played, I explained to my grandson that the crocodile had a bad tooth, so he had to push on each tooth to find out which one of the crocodile's teeth were in pain. Simple enough for him, he decides and proceeds to push down on each tooth. He went into a fit of giggles when suddenly the crocodile's mouth snaps shut. He loves to get new people to play and let them be surprised when suddenly the crocodile's mouth snaps shut. He thinks it's the funniest thing.

You can find Crocodile Dentist at Winning Moves for only $13.95. Inexpensive to add to the little ones collection of games. The crocodile does not need any batteries, he comes all put together. The fun can start as soon as you take him out of the box. While you are on the site giving Crocodile Dentist look, check out their great games.

The Life Game from Winning Moves

We received a sample in exchange for a honest an unbiased review.

We had the opportunity to review the Life Game from Winning Moves.



Life was a game I played growing up. I remember when we were teens we loved playing that game. It's all about getting married, having kids and paying bills. Of course when your a teen you think there is nothing cooler than the adult world.

I knew our teens would get a kick out of this game as well. The object of the game is to spin the spinner and get your car around the board first all while getting married having kids and dealing with buying houses and paying bills. Even now it is still a lot of fun to play.

Life is one of those classic games that will always be fun to play. Winning Moves is a great place to find classic and retro games. If you are looking to build your collection of games, or need a new game for game night Winning Moves is a great place to check out.
