How to Avoid the Retail Walk of Shame

Wee Blessing Review

I ask myself that question often. I wondered if there is clothes subscription service for teens? That was the question I had after sitting outside of a dressing room with my teenage son. Has anyone else been there? They do not want to be there. They do not want to try on anything. They want to grab things off the rounders and have you pay, but they have no idea if it fits. They do not care about your budget or the price. They do not care if it matches anything. They want what they want. Then they go home try it on and insist it fits when it doesn’t. That is the best scenario the worst is that it just sits in their drawer. You ask them after a week where is that ridiculously expensive pair of jeans I bought you last week? Why haven’t you worn them?

They reply. I didn’t like them. You ask where they are? I do not know? Then after 15 minutes, they appear without the tags. You debate should you bring them back? What do you do when you get there? You decide for what they cost you will, in fact, do the walk of shame. You know the one where you have crumbled clothes without tags, and you have to ask for a refund. They offer you exchange and all you can think is nope. I am so not shopping for this teen again.

I have a solution for the retail walk of shame. It is Wee Blessing. You can use my exclusive code MADAMEDEALS to receive 20% on your first blessing. This is how it works.

You fill out your teen’s profile. You look in their laundry and determine what they wear. Yes, looking in their closet isn’t a clear indication. You find their size, figure out their style, and you note anything you know they do not like. Then you press the button, and someone else does your shopping. There are no trips to the store. The best part is they find the deal. I saved 20 %- 50% off retail and my son emerged in clothes that he liked. The best part is he would try everything on because we were home and I may have held the controller to the Ps4 until we were done. I knew right then and there if he liked what we got and if it fits. I love Wee Blessings they helped me dress my hard to please teen, they saved me money, and I didn’t have to spend my time in the store twice!

Wee Blessing is the FIRST and ONLY subscription styling service offered for the entire family, including moms, dads, kids and teens. And don’t forget to use my exclusive code MADAMEDEALS to receive 20% on your first blessing. Check them out!

Ways To Use Avocado

Easy and tasty ways to use avocados

Ways To Use Avocado

I was thinking about ways to use avocado in your cooking. We use avocado in our meals because of the nutritional benefits and the taste. It is one of my favorite fruits. I love how creamy they are and they really do fill you up.  I should say I love this tool to pit an avocado.

Avocados are a great base for smoothies, soups, dips, and even beauty products. It is the fruit of a thousand uses. It tastes great and it is the perfect treat. We love them so much we have a ton of recipes to share with you we know ways to use avocado.

Sing to Salute Military Families

Disclosure: I received compensation to help spread the word about the Walmart  Holiday Sing to Salute Military Families campaign through The Motherhood Network. All thought ,opinions, and musical renditions are my own. I am happy to #Sing2Salute military families and I sincerely thank them for their sacrifice and wish them all a Merry Christmas. 

Service to our country is one of the greatest gifts a person can give. Our service men and women often miss special days with their families so this holiday season let’s all take a few moments to give them a simple gift to thank them for their service. When I think of the holidays I think about the beauty of the season. All of the tinsel and glitter. All of the bright lights. I also think of all the wonderful songs that really do help to make the season bright. So this year let’s all join together to give the gift of cheer to those who sacrifice so much to ensure we have the gift of freedom.

Let’s all Sing to Salute Military Families!

Sing to Salute Military Families this Holiday Season

 

On Giving Tuesday, Dec. 1, Walmart kicked off their Holiday Sing to Salute Military Families campaign with a $500,000 donation to Fisher House Foundation.

What is the Fisher House Foundation?

For the past 25 years, Fisher Houses have provided a home-away-from-home for military and veterans’ families whose loved ones are in a nearby military or veterans hospital. The $500,000 donation will be distributed among more than 60 U.S.-based Fisher Houses and will be used for home improvements and holiday festivities, including gifts for families and visits from Santa.

 

We need your help!

From now until to Dec. 22, Walmart is asking everyone to help share holiday songs with military families.

You can help by competing the following steps:

  1. Create a holiday greeting or video of one or more individuals singing a portion of a classic holiday song.
  1. Post the greeting or video on a public Instagram, Twitter or YouTube account with the hashtag #Sing2Salute. If you’re posting on YouTube, make sure the hashtag is in your video’s title and post description.
  1. In the post, tag a friend and call on them to participate.

Here is the best part: For each post published on a public Instagram, Twitter or YouTube account with the hashtag #Sing2Salute during the campaign, Walmart will donate $100, up to $1 million, to Fisher House Foundation. The goal is to help Fisher House Foundation fund a full year of lodging for military families staying at Fisher Houses on U.S. military bases. You can learn more about Walmart’s Holiday Sing to Salute Military Families campaign, review rules for participation and see featured videos, by visiting walmart.com/sing2salute.
