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!

What To Do When Your Hair Turns 40

What are good hair products for women over 40 that really works? I can’t believe when you age your hair gets old. I am not sure why I didn’t realize it but I didn’t, and it wasn’t until my hair resembled a brillo pad instead of the chic mane I was used to that I had to do something. I did what anyone with a problem does. I looked for a solution. I ordered BirchBox. I did so knowing it would be a hit or miss experience, but I couldn’t afford to buy each full- size product to try, so I invested $10 a month into finding what works best for me. Then I can share it with you!

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.

We use avocado for lunch and we love it! This is  How to Make an Avocado Sandwich

Strawberry Daiquiri and Pina Colada Kids Party Drinks

Summer is here! To me, nothing says summer like enjoying the weather outside, cook outs, and a cold drink. 

While Mommy and Daddy like their drinks, sometimes, it is fun to have a drink the whole family can enjoy.  Especially during all of your summer cookouts. A couple of our favorite kid friendly drinks are Strawberry Daiquiris and Pina Coladas.  

Why Kid Friendly Drinks?

I’ve caught my kids a few times eyeing up those “special drinks” and you can tell they are wondering what they taste like. Kid friendly versions can let them in on the fun too!

Having kid friendly special drinks, especially during summer parties makes the kids feel like they are apart of the action and not sitting and watching from the sidelines.

What do I need?

Frozen Daiquiri mix

Frozen Pina Colada Mix

Frozen strawberries

Ice cubes

Water

Blender

Fancy Glasses

Where do I find mixes?

We found our mixes at walmart in the frozen juice section.

 How do you make it?

These are so simple to make!

Just pour the thawed mixture into the blender and add your ice.

Blend until smooth.

If the mixture seems too thin add more ice. If it seems too thick, add small amounts of water and blend until the mixture is at your desired consistency.

We chose to add real strawberries to our Strawberry Daiquiri while blending to enhance the flavor but, that is optional.

Pour in a fancy glass, garnish with strawberry slices and enjoy!

Here are some other fancy kid friendly drinks to try too!
