Show off your family (or company) pride with custom shirts from Custom Ink


Family Reunion

Does your extended family regularly get together for family reunions?

I adore my family very, very, very much. I love them with all my heart. When I was younger all my aunts, uncles and cousins would try to get together on a regular basis. We spent nearly every summer together. Sadly, some of our relatives from out of state couldn’t always be there. There was one or two times to my recollection that we were able to get almost every one of our relatives together in the same place at the same time.

As the years went on and people moved away, passed away or just got too busy with their work and family commitments, getting together became next to impossible.

A few years ago we some how managed to get many of our relatives together at the same time. It started out as a meet up with just a few of us cousins, but it ended up becoming a family reunion. We loved it! We all had such a great time. It was amazing.

Reunion 1

I fuzzed out everyone’s faces for their protection and to conceal their identity (not everyone wants to be seen on a blog or online).

There was a lake so the kids went swimming, we had a great game of baseball, a lot of food and so much more. It was a blast! It was a fantastic day and we are anxious to do it again in the very near future.

The next time we get together I would very much love to have matching tee shirts that read “X Family Reunion” (the “X” representing the family name), as well as the date. Not only would it identify us as a family, it would also make a great souvenir of that special day.

I have seen commercials on television for Custom Ink. Custom Ink allows you to create custom tee shirts (and more!). You have complete control over the design using the company’s images or your own images, you favorite text, colors and so much more. They also offer FREE two day shipping.

You can order one product or a 1,000 products – it’s totally up to you.

They also carry tote bags and can koozies which I think would also be fun to have at a family reunion.

Custom Ink gave me the opportunity to create a custom tee shirt for my immediate family. We didn’t plan a family reunion but instead we had a family dinner and a movie marathon night.

I thought creating a custom tee shirt would have been hard to do. That was not the case at all. Custom Ink makes is unbelievably easy to create your own designs. Not only that, the wonderful people at Custom Ink go over your creation to make sure everything is just perfect. They want to make sure you are 100% satisfied with your design.

To be honest with you it took me forever to create something for my family. I kept changing my mind. Custom Ink has so many great options to choose from. I finally came up with a design. I used silhouette graphics for a family (two male, two female since my kids are teens), as well as silhouettes of five cats (all different), a dog and even a goldfish to represent all our pets. After all, they are part of our family too.

The graphics are on the front along with our family name and a heart (because I love them so much). On the back we have each of our names and a number. My husband is #1, I’m #2, our oldest is #3 and our youngest is #4.

For the sake of this post I had to cover up our family name as well as the name of my husband and kids for their protection. I wish I could show you the entire shirt, but I feel it necessary to cover up personal information. Sorry.

I wanted to do something fun and memorable with my family. I wanted to do something outdoors, but my teenagers felt a little funny wearing family tee shirts and NOT be at a family reunion. If it was a family reunion they would be honored to wear matching shirts, but with it being just the four of us they felt a little funny. That’s fine. I totally get it. So I came up with an indoor idea – a family dinner and marathon movie night.

We ordered dinner from our favorite pizzeria (dinners, not pizza). After we let it digest a bit we enjoyed chips, dips and popcorn.

We had a lot of laughs, with the exception of my daughter who was dealing with a sinus infection at that time and didn’t want to get photographed. In her defense she didn’t look well either.

We ended up watching both Despicable Me films because we were planning on seeing the new Minion movie that weekend (due to my daughter’s illness we had to put that off). I thought it would be fun to lead up to the new Minion movie with the Despicable Me films which helped make the Minions as popular as they are today.

I even found Minion Twinkies! They are regular Twinkies that came with edible sticker which allowed you to make the Twinkies look like your favorite characters from the new film. I thought that was a lot of fun and my kids enjoyed decorating them.

You may have noticed the huge container of popcorn kernels on the counter in the one photo. That is because we made our own microwave popcorn using brown paper bags. It’s actually a healthier option compared to pre-made microwave popcorn. Using the paper bag method cuts out the oil, salt and other ingredients found in pre-made microwave popcorn.

Making your own microwave popcorn is super easy to do. Simply pour 1/4th of a cup of corn kernels in a paper bag. Fold the end over (tightly if you can – you can even add a small piece of tape) then microwave it for a few minutes until you hear the popping slow down (you don’t want burnt popcorn).

Ink 6

You can add seasoning if you like. We enjoy our’s plain.

I looked for Minion stickers to put on the bags to tie everything in but I couldn’t find any.

We love the shirts from Custom Ink. My family still finds it funny that they had a fish silhouette so that we could include our goldfish Fishy. Custom Ink has hundreds of graphics to choose from to make up your own perfect design. You can also upload your own photo or logo to truly personalize it for you, your family and/or your business.

My extended family has been talking about getting together again for another reunion. Once we can finalize the date I plan on heading over to Custom Ink to make up special shirts for everyone to wear so that it shows the world that we are a family and proud of who we are.

I like that Custom Ink doesn’t require you to make dozens of shirts (or other products). You can make and purchase the amount you need. Ordering is super easy and they have customer service people available (including an online chat) to help you out if needed.

They also shipped pretty quickly which I was impressed with. You would think customization would take a while. Custom Ink gets your products out to you promptly.

Custom Ink Products

Custom Ink shirts would be great for families, groups, clubs, organization, special events, birthdays, sports teams and so much more. You can have your design printed on tee shirts, hoodies, button down shirts, uniforms, polos, hats, bags, drink wear and even pens. Sizes include babies, kids, juniors and adults. I’m a plus size lady and I was able to get a shirt in my size too. They have plenty of color options too.

You can even create a design and have people order and pay for it on their own. This option is great for family reunions, sports teams and other organizations where everyone can purchase their own.

Don’t worry if you don’t think you can come up with the perfect design. Custom Ink has plenty of pre-made templates that you can “tweak” to suit your needs.

Have you tried Custom Ink before? Do you have a special event or occasion coming up that you think a personalized product (shirt, hat, bag…) would be ideal for it? Feel free to share your thoughts. I always love to hear from readers.

June 19th is National Flip Flop Day!


National Flip Flop Day Viconic

I find it amusing that there are so many days dedicated to unusual things such as National Fruit Cake Toss Day, National Cream Puff Day and International Fairy Day. These are legitimate “days” too… I looked them up.

Later on this week (June 19th) is National Flip Flop Day. With this being the summer season it makes sense.

My teen daughter lives in flip flops all summer long. The moment the weather gets warmer she kicks off her Ugg boots and slips into flip flips.

Personally I am not a fan of flip flops. I like how they look and I’m all for being comfortable. If it was possible I would be barefoot all the time. Growing up I rarely wore shoes – even when playing in the woods. I like the feel of grass and dirt on my feet.

The only reason I am not necessarily a fan of flip flops is because I don’t like that piece that slides in between your toes and almost every flip flop I have seen are just flat pieces of foam, and I don’t think they really support your feet, nor do they look comfortable.

This all recently changed when I received a pair of Tide Flip Flops from a company called Vionic. Vionic with Orthaheel Technology offers the ONLY sandals recommended by both the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) and renowned integrative medicine doctor,Andrew Weil, MD. Vionic.

According to the brand;

Traditional flip-flops are notoriously bad for people and are flat as a board, which causes feet to flatten against their natural form. On the other hand, Vionic flip flops hug the arch of the foot for full support. With Vionic’s podiatrist-designed, supportive Orthaheel Technology, the gravitational forces that cause the arch of the feet to collapse can be reversed, raising them back into their neutral position helping to re-align the entire leg and preventing plantar fasciitis, so wearers can move to move dynamically in complete comfort as intended.

I looked them up online and you can clearly see that they are different than more traditional flip flops. They way they are curved you can tell that they provide better support for your feet.

You can clearly see the arch support in the photos below.

Viconic Flip Flop Side View

Viconic Arch Support

Even though I am not really into flip flops I wanted to give these a try. They look comfortable.

I received a pair of Vionic Tide flip flops with rhinestones – after all a girl wants a little “bling bling.”

Wow! These are not your average flip flop. These feel extremely comfortable to wear. You can see and feel the arch support. They are as comfy as my favorite pair of sneakers.

These flip flops are also very well made and can certainly handle many summer adventures.

They look heavy but they are actually incredibly light weight. I was surprised at how light they feet on your feet.

Viconic shoes are also endorsed by celebrity fitness trainer Juliet Kaska’s (clientele includes Kerry Washington, Ali Larter, Stacy Keibler, Pink, Kate Walsh and more).

I will admit that I am still not a fan of the piece that goes in between your toes and I am trying to get used to that. I haven’t worn these shoes for more than an hour or so each time, only because I’m still getting used to that in between the toe thing.

Viconic Rhinestone Flip Flops

My daughter wears the same size shoe as I do. Needless to say she keeps taking the Vionic flip flops from me. She LOVES them and I know she would wear them all the time if I gave them to her. I am considering that because she lives in flip flops and I know these shoes would get a lot of wear AND I know they would be healthier for her feet with their great arch support.

Viconic has more than just flip flops. They carry sandals, wedges, flats and more for women, men and children.

If you would like to learn more visit ViconicShoes.com. You can find the brand on social media too (all the links are found at the bottom right of their website).

Don’t forget about National Flip Flop day on June 19th. Upload photos of you wearing your favorite flip flops and use the hashtag #NationalFlipFlopDay and #ViconicShoes. You can also tag @ViconicShoes and use the hashtag #FlipFlops too.

Do you wear flip flops? Why or why not?

Show off your American pride with fun fashions from Tipsy Elves


Tipsy Elves Memorial Day

Photo Source: Tipsy Elves Facebook Page

I like the series Shark Tank. My husband and I watch it every Friday night. I even watch the episodes that are in syndication a few nights a week (off hand I can’t remember which channel that is).

I think it’s really cool when I see the products pitched on Shark Tank available for purchase in stores and/or online. With the syndicated episodes I sometimes see products that have been available for a long time. Its fun to find out that they started off on Shark Tank. I love success stories.

One Shark Tank success is Tipsy Elves. This is one of those success stories where I knew about the brand BEFORE I saw the episode on Shark Tank.

Tipsy Elves makes Ugly Christmas Sweaters. Ugly Christmas Sweaters are all the rage during the holiday season. People even have Ugly Christmas Sweater parties. I haven’t been invited to one but if/when I am I know I’m going to head over to Tipsy Elves and find the perfect Ugly Sweater.

I did a post about Ugly Christmas Sweaters years ago. Here are my kids fooling around in their sweaters (notice my husband’s head photo bombing the photo to the right – LOL).


Tipsy Elves have some really funny sweaters (the ones my kids wore above are NOT from Tipsy Elves). Some of their sweaters are really funny (and ugly!).

Ugly Sweaters

I actually think the Elf sweater dress is cute.I’d wear that if I had the figure for it.

The cat sweater with the pom poms cracks me up. My cats would go crazy for that one.

When you think “Tipsy Elves” you most likely think of drunk Christmas Elves, but did you know Tipsy Elves carries products for other holidays, not just Christmas? Tipsy Elves has products for St. Patrick’s Day, Valentine’s Day, collegiate products and even ones for this Memorial Day weekend and the upcoming Forth of July holiday?

Tipsy Elves was kind enough to send my family an assortment of Patriotic products to show off our American pride.

Sadly, Tipsy Elves didn’t have any clothing in my size, but I am able to enjoy these really cool socks.



They sent my daughter a cool pair of Patriotic pants. I had hoped they would fit her but they don’t. It’s OK though. I have a relative who I can give them to and I know she can fit them (my daughter is too short for these and they were a little snug in the hips).

American Flag Pants

These pants would go PERFECT with a solid colored tee shirt (red, white or blue) or a solid colored tank top. I think anything with a pattern or design would be overkill.

You might think these are “disposible” type pants, meaning you wear them for the holiday or an event and then never wear them again. That is not the case at all. These are very well made. You can wear these many times. They appear to be very comfy (based on how the material feels). My daughter said they were comfortable for the most part (they just didn’t fit her too well – she’s short but a bit “hippy”).


My son received a fun pair of American Flag USA shorts. He LOVES these. He says these are really comfy and roomy. They are also lightweight which is great for a hot summer day.

These are not swim trunks. They are actually shorts you can wear to a backyard barbecue or simply enjoying the lazy days of summer by the pool or at the beach. These are “every day wear” shorts. Not just special occasion shorts.

My son actually puts these on when he gets home from school. He likes lounging around in them.


For my hubby, Tipsy Elves sent him USA Tee Shirt. It’s a simple, no frills design, but that is fine because my hubby is not one to wear something that would stand out too much. This is a great shirt to wear year round to show off your American pride.

The tee shirt is soft, comfortable and wears well.

My son was in a “mood” when I was taking photos (you’ve got to love teenagers) so my husband stepped in to model both the shorts and the tee shirt.

Sorry about the photo and for the shirt/shorts being a bit wrinkled.

Sorry about the photo and for the shirt/shorts being a bit wrinkled.

As of this moment in time we don’t have plans for Memorial Day (we were hoping to go to one party but they had to cancel due to family reasons). Darn. We were looking forward to barbecued burgers and hot dogs. It’s not Memorial Day without a barbecue. We were also planning on wearing our fun clothing from Tipsy Elves. Hopefully we get another invite over the weekend. If not, it’s OK. The Fourth of July is fast approaching. We can wear this clothing on that day too (as well as all summer long).

If you would like to see what other fun things Tipsy Elves has to offer (fanny packs, socks, hats, “onesies,” scarves and even wine sweaters), visit www.TipsyElves.com. You can also find them on all the social media channels (all the links are found on the bottom right of their website).

What do you think about the fun clothing from Tipsy Elves? Would you like to show off your American pride in unique and colorful clothing? Feel free to share your thoughts.

Find your perfect swimsuit with Land’s End Swim Tool


Beach Ball

This weekend is Memorial Day Weekend – the unofficial start to summer. That means vacation, plenty of backyard barbecues and something that many people dread – spending time at the beach or pool side. It’s not that we don’t enjoy those activities, it’s just that to fully enjoy them you need a bathing suit.

For years I have tried to avoid going to the pool in our condo complex. We only go to beach every other year, so that hasn’t been much of an issue. It’s not that I don’t like these activities its just that being an obese woman makes me VERY self conscious about being seen in a bathing suit. Whether you are extra skinny, overweight or even the perfect weight I think most people dread being in a bathing suit.

Shopping for a swimsuit is not as easy as it sounds. You either have to go from store to store to find one that suits your body, or you have to take a chance and order one online in hopes that it fits and that it looks good on you.

What if there was a way to help take the guesswork out of swimsuit shopping?

Land's End

Land’s End sells bathing suits for people of all shapes and sizes – Regular, Petite, Long, Plus, up to DDD-cup and even Mastectomy styles. Lands’ End has the perfect suit for everyone.

To help make shopping for a new swim suit easier, Land’s End created the Lands’ End Swim Tool to find your match. This online tool provides a series of questions, using imagery to help in the selection of style, body type and level of coverage.

I gave the online app (there is nothing you need to download) to see what suits it came up with for me. I was actually impressed by the choices it came up with.

Land’s End was kind enough to send me a bathing suit to review. Using the app I was able to narrow down my choices to this suit.

Women’s Slender Knot Front Swimdress in black.

Land's End Bathing Suit

Mine is the one on the left.


I would love to show you a photo of me in the bathing suit, but I am very self conscious about how I look, most especially in a bathing suit. I also tend to wear a cover up over my suit. Not because I am self-conscious (in a way I am) but more so because I’m very fair and would get sunburned just THINKING about sunshine. Ha Ha.

I like suits that have skirts because they help to cover up the thighs a bit.

I was pleasantly surprised by how well the suit fit me – sight unseen. I only used the Land’s End Swim Finder Tool to help me narrow down my choices based upon my answers to their questions.

If I went to the store this would be the type of suit I would go for.

Instead of going from store to store, trying on numerous swim suits and agonizing over which one to buy I was able to pick out a suit using the “app” in a matter of minutes.

I haven’t had a chance to wear the suit yet (I’ve only tried it on). Our pool doesn’t open until this weekend and it hasn’t been warm enough to head to the beach. However we are making plans to do both in the very near future.

Are you in need of a new suit? If so you should click the image below to use the Lands’ End Swim Tool and find your perfect suit.

Swimsuit Finder

After you tried it out feel free to come back here and share your comments about what you think about the Swim Finder. Were you able to find the perfect suit? Were you happy with the choices the app gave you? Did you end up purchasing one of the suggested suits?

Vote for your favorite from Vans Custom Culture competition


Vans Custom Culture

Growing up I loved being barefoot. The moment I got home from school I would kick off my shoes. I was always playing outside in bare feet too. Maybe that is why I am not much of a shoe person as an adult.

I have a few pairs of shoes but I usually only wear sneakers. I am more comfortable in sneakers than I am in dress shoes. I keep a couple of pairs of dress shoes for special occasions.

My teenage daughter loves shoes. She’s crazy about shoes, bags, jewelry, clothing and makeup. She’s a typical teen girl.

My daughter likes to wear sneakers just like me, but she’s more picky about the ones she’ll wear. One of her favorite brands is Vans. She has a three pairs of Vans sneakers.

Have you ever heard of Vans Custom Culture? I was not aware of this competition until recently.

Vans Custom Culture was created to inspire and empower high school students to embrace their creativity through art and design, and to bring attention to diminishing arts education budgets. Custom Culture is a national high school customization competition using four pairs of blank Vans shoes to be customized around four themes: Art, Music, Action Sports and Local Flavor.

This brief video gives you a little more information about the competition too.


Both of my kids are in high school. I am always amazed by just how talented the students are. Even in middle school and elementary school there have been some students who excelled at art.

I was good at art when I was in high school (it was my best subject). Sadly I think I lost a lot of my creativeness as I got older. These days I find that I doodle more than draw. I guess it’s because I don’t have the time like I did when I was in high school. As an adult I always feel rushed all the time too. When I was younger I took my time to do things.

Vans Custom Culture is a high school competition. Over 2,500 schools are competing for the opportunity to win $50,000 for their school’s art programs. I think this is wonderful. I fully support the arts.

My daughter was in an advanced art class at school and did very well. Sadly the program was cut due to lack of funding. I think that is one of the worse things the school district could have done. I’m sure there were other ways to cut corners. They didn’t have to cut out such an important program.

Vans Shoes

Art inspires people. It’s also a way for students to showcase their talents. Seeing their artwork in local studios and featured around the school is a great way to boost someone’s self esteem and confidence. Art is also a way for people to express themselves and let their inner self shine. Not having these programs is a travesty.

Vans sent the participating school blank (plain white) Vans shoes. For this competition the school’s need to decorate the Vans shoes any way they see fit. When they finished they submitted their designs to Vans for judging. The top 50 entries will be voted on by the public, starting TODAY. Winners from the public round of voting will then be judged internally by Vans. Students representing the top 5 designs will be flown to New York City for the final round of judging. The winning design will win $50,000 for their school’s art programs.

Vans sent me a pair of shoes and some art supplies (markers, paints…) to decorate my own pair of Vans. Needless to say I’m not talented, but I tried.

Shoe 1

Shoe 2

Shoe 3

FYI… Don’t ask kids to help you decorate shoes with markers because they will think it’s OK to decorate their own sneakers that way. LOL!

I had some help decorating the sneakers (from 7 years old to teens).

Even though I won’t be winning any prizes for my shoes, it was still fun to do.

If you would like to learn more about the Vans Custom Culture competition, or to vote for your favorite entry, visit – Vans.com/CustomCulture. In addition, check out the hashtags #VansCustomCulture #ArtEducations on social media.

What do you think about this competition? Do you feel that not enough is being done to encourage children to participate in the arts (art, music, theater…)? Feel free to share your thoughts.

OGIO for women on the go



Being a stay at home/work from home mom for a big chunk of my life, I never had to worry much about taking all my daily essentials with me where ever I went. When my kids were little I would tote around half our home in my diaper bag, but that was many years ago. My kids are teenagers now.

Prior to getting a job outside of the home all I needed to carry with me when I went shopping and did errands was my wristlet – a tiny purse big enough to hold my wallet, car keys and cellphone. That’s it. That is all I needed.

Once I got a part time job outside of the home I suddenly realized that there was a lot I needed to bring with me. Most things I don’t necessarily need on a daily basis, but they are still good things to have on hand. Suddenly I needed room to tote around Advil, a comb, mirror, mints, TUMS, lip balm, hand cream, eye drops, handy wipes, tissue, cellphone plug, portable charger for my cellphone, iPad Mini (to read ebooks), snacks, something to drink, a pen, paper and occasionally my laptop, power cord and mouse.

Needless to say my itty bitty wristlet was no longer big enough.

Granted I don’t need all that stuff every day, but it’s nice to have these things handy in case I need them.

I found myself looking for a new bag that would give me plenty of room for all the goodies I need to take to work with me. I also wanted something that was fashionable, but not too fashionable. After all, I’m more about what is comfortable and practical than I am about what is the “it” look.

These days I find myself looking at bags more often then I did in the past. Even when I am out and about I check out other ladies tote bags and handbags and try and picture myself using it.

I was sent to review a super cute tote bag from a company called OGIO.

OGIO has several different styles of handbags to choose from. In addition they also sell backpacks, sports bags, bags for work and travel and more. OGIO has bags for both men and women in a variety of colors and styles.

I was asked which bag I wanted to review. To be hones with you there were so many options that it was hard to narrow it down.

Here were some of my choices. All of the bags are available in a variety of colors, fabrics and designs.

I received a Hamptons bag (pictured/described above).

The Hamptons bag is super cute. I LOVE the button details on the side. I think it was the darling buttons that drew me to that bag style.

The Hamptons bag features a “belt” (for lack of a better description) which is for decoration. It doesn’t serve a purpose.

There are plenty of pockets on the outside of the bag, ideal for a cellphone, charging cable, portable charger, pens/pencils, lip balm and other smaller items.

The bag also features a large outer pocket. This pocket can hold an iPad Mini or e-reader, pens, pencils, lip balm, make up and other daily essentials.


Inside features an even larger pocket. It is large enough for a small laptop. You could fill the inner pocket with other things like snacks, a reusable water bottle or anything else you might need.

I have a small HP Envy 360 laptop. I usually need to carry the power cord with me as well as a mouse (I prefer to use a mouse instead of the pad on the computer).

This is a pretty little tote bag which is ideal for every day use. The bags are very pretty and colorful, but they are not too fancy or ornate to take with you grocery shopping, dropping off books at the library or spending the afternoon shopping with a best friend.

If you would like to check out all the darling and practical bags that OGIO has to offer please visit www.OGIO.com. You can also find the brand on Facebook and Twitter.

What do you think about these OGIO bags? Do they look like the type of bag you would like to own?
