Super Bowl XLVIII: Be the Broncos Biggest Fan with this Gear

 Super Bowl XLVIII: Be the Broncos Biggest Fan with this Gear

It only seemed fair that if I was going to write about how to be the Seattle Seahawks 12th Man that I should also post about how to be the Denver Broncos Biggest Fan on the same day, lest you think I’m a bit partial to the Seahawks. Let me assure you that I am not.

True Story that hasn’t happened yet: This year on my fantasy football team I had the opportunity to pick up Peyton Manning, but I decided to heed my husband’s advice and instead picked up the best available running back, C.J. Spiller. I’m pretty sure this decision – my first of the draft – lead me to last place in our league. Next year I’m going back to my tried and true formula of picking a quarter back first and have my sights set on either Peyton Manning or Russell Wilson. Not like this is particularly brilliant on my behalf considering they’re both going to the Super Bowl. Still – it’s the thought that counts.

I graduated high school in 1999, which just so happens to be the last time Denver won the Super Bowl. If you plan on cheering them on to their first championship in 15 years, here’s some gear that may help you do so in style:


1. Women’s Old-Style Denver Broncos Tee - $38

2. Yeti Knit Ski Hat - $29.95

3. Denver Broncos Decorative Eye Strips - $4.99

4. Denver Broncos Camouflage Scarf - $17.95

5. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Orange Nail Polish - $10

6. Essie Aruba Blue Nail Polish - $7.79

7. Nike Denver Broncos Mile High Thunder Tee – $27.95

8. Denver Broncos Knit Knee Slipper Socks - $29.95

9. Denver Broncos Track Jacket - $68.80

10. Orange, White & Navy Hair Tie Set – $5.50

Super Bowl XLVIII: Here’s What You’ll Need to be the Seahawks’ 12th Man

by Lisa on January 24th, 2014

Super Bowl XLVIII: Here's what you'll need to be the Seahawks 12th Man

This little thing called the Super Bowl will dominate the country on February 2, 2014. The Seattle Seahawks will tee off against the Denver Broncos in a battle to see who can become the world’s national champion. Or something like that. Truth be told, I’m still a little miffed that my boyfriend Tom Brady won’t be playing, but what can ya do? There’s always next year for me and all the other forlorn Tom fans out there. (I don’t root for the Patriots. Just Tom.)

I haven’t decided if I’ll be rooting for the Seahawks or Broncos once the game actually begins. I don’t feel much of a connection since I didn’t have players from either team on my fantasy team. The Seahawks are always exciting to watch and their games look like a heck of a lot of fun with those incredibly loud fans, but the Peyton Manning storyline is compelling and I had an awesome time in Denver last year. I may just declare myself Switzerland and be happy with whichever team takes home the title.

I know most people aren’t neutral though, so if you’re going to add yourself to the Seattle Seahawks’ 12th Man roster, here’s what you might need:

1. Fleece-Lined Knit Hat* - $22.95

2. Nike Danger Russ Tee – $29.95

3. Women’s Seattle Seahawks Tee - $28

4. Seattle Seahawks Fitted Hat - $29.95

5. Woodmark Scarf - $17.95

6. Seattle Seahawks Decorative Eye Strips - $7.09

7. Nike Seattle Seahawks We Are 12 Hoodie – $64.95

8. Nails Inc. Neon Green Crackle Top Coat - $5

9. Essie Aruba Blue Nail Polish - $7.79

10. Blue Mini Pom Ponytail Holder – $6.95


*Side Note: I have a Patriots fleece-lined hat and I have to tell you that it is AMAZING. Super duper warm and kinda cute, too. You can see it in action here.

Today’s Cheap eBook: All Around the Town by Mary Higgins Clark is $1.99

by Lisa on January 24th, 2014

Cheap and Free eBooks


All Around the Town by Mary Higgins Clark


When I was younger I was obsessed with Mary Higgins Clark books. I loved the mystery and the intrigue, though at some point I moved on to something new. I was reminded of this old love of mine when I saw that All Around the Town (one of my all-time favorite Mary Higgins Clark stories) is on sale for $1.99 for both Kindle and Nook!

Synopsis: When Laurie Kenyon, a twenty-one-year-old student, is accused of murdering her English professor, she has no memory of the crime. Her fingerprints, however, are everywhere. When she asks her sister, attorney Sarah, to mount her defense, Sarah in turn brings in psychiatrist Justin Donnelly. Kidnapped at the age of four and victimized for two years, Laurie has developed astounding coping skills. Only when the unbearable memories of those lost years are released can the truth of the crime come out — and only then can the final sadistic plan of her abductor, whose obsession is stronger than ever, be revealed.

Get a Bouquet from The Bouqs Co. for $28 (including shipping)

by Lisa on January 24th, 2014

The Bouqs Co Discount via Gilt City


I just learned about The Bouqs Co. earlier this week (and will be reviewing them next week!) but I really like the concept of this site. They only offer 40 different flower arrangements, with the idea being that they’d like to do those 40 really well instead of trying to constantly diversify and offer subpar service.  Approximately half of the bouqs offered use flowers that ship from a volcano in South America for $40, while the other half of them are shipped from farms in California for $50. ALL of them are beautiful. (Why the weird difference in price? The South American flowers are frozen and shipped within a week, while the California flowers are shipped fresh overnight.)

If you’re interested in trying The Bouqs Co. out – or informing your significant other about the company with a little “wink, wink, nudge, nudge, Valentine’s Day, ahem” – head on over to Gilt City because you can grab your first bouquet for $28. You are limited to one of the South American volcano bouquets, which are absolutely gorgeous!

Lush Us Bouquet from The Bouqs


I’ll be reviewing this Lush Us Bouq, which features sweet Pink Ranunculus with Green Ruscus flowers. Normally $40, with the Gilt City deal it’s $28, which includes shipping!

Easily Swap Unwanted Subscription Box Samples with

by Lisa on January 24th, 2014

eDivv: Easily trade unwanted subscription box samples


Whether you subscribe to one subscription box or ten, you likely receive a product or two you don’t really want each month. I’ve heard of underground trading groups popping up, and saw a couple of Facebook groups dedicated to trading samples, but a new website has just launched to make the trading process even easier. Fellow subscription box junkies, let me introduce you to

At eDivv you can set up your own “store,” complete with photos that you take of the samples you don’t want. Once your store is up and running others can browse your selection and offer a trade with items they don’t want from their own stores. You can also initiate a trade with someone if they have something in their store that you want.

Uploading your items to eDivv and having a storefront is 100% free and the only fees you’ll incur are for shipping your products to the intended recipients.

This fun site launched January 21 and I just spent some time browsing around and there are already tons of items listed!

Casual Friday on a Dime: Warm and Comfortable

by Lisa on January 24th, 2014
casual winter
Simply Vera Vera Wang Spring Training French Terry Hooded Tunic, $37.80
Brushed Fleece Leggings, $21.51
NIGHT RIDER 23 Mod Style Waterproof Boot, $114.95

There’s snow on the ground here in Maryland. And it’s freezing. I want to be warm and comfortable, at the same time. Hence today’s casual Friday outfit!

I am wearing ballet flats today. Not the smartest move, I get it. They were just too cute to pass up! But now my feet are freezing. Le sigh. I can’t tell what my favorite part of this outfit it- the boots, the leggings or the striped tunic! Too many choices!

The boots are waterproof, which is super important when it’s snowy and slushy outside, so that’s a huge win in my book! And the leggings are fleece lined, so you know you’ll be warm and comfortable all day long! And, you guys, I can’t get enough of this tunic! How cute!

And of course you could make this look for less by incorporating your own boots, leggings or tunic!

What are your requirements for casual Friday? Do you want to be warm and comfortable?
