Prana Spring Style 2016

March 12, 2016

Through my partnership with SweatPink, I received a free pair of yoga capris in exchange for my opinions in this blog post. All opinions are my own.

With Easter just around the corner, it’s definitively starting to feel like spring cleaning time, or should I say spring shopping? 🙂 Let me introduce you to Prana. Prana is an American company out of California who takes pride in sustainable clothing for women and men. Whether you are out for a hike, doing yoga or more likely sporting nice yoga pants while you go “run” errands, they have you covered.  So, here’s my wish list of items from their 2016 Spring catalog. Let me know what you think!

Bathing Suits

Ok, seriously. It’s almost that time and living in Florida means that we’ll be swimming probably before Easter. I really liked their “create a suit” tool which allows you to choose the style of bathing suit first. Then, you are able to select your prints.

So many choices and beautiful print selections!

Cute Outfits

So, this outfit would work for casual Friday at the office, meeting with your friends or just being around town. I love the yellow print and white jeans are a must for spring/summer in my book.

With Strawberry Festival going on right now, this cute jumpsuit would be perfect! It also comes in black/white or purple, but I think the Sunwashed Red looks best.

Yoga

Whether you go to a studio for yoga classes or you practice at home, and even if you just love the comfort of yoga pants, these yoga capris are the softest cotton ever. Ever. While the ones I received for the review were the Maison Knicker ones, I’m confident that these would be just as amazing. Fit is something that I struggle with. Sometimes, I’m between sizes and sometimes one size fits too tight and the next size up fits too big. Argh. But with the Maison Knicker ones fit great. They were form fitting without compressing my lower half.

So, prana has shared with me a 15% off promo code! Use PSSS16XM by 3.30.2016 to get your discount. Let me know how it goes. I’m curious to see what you would choose. 🙂 Happy Spring and Happy Shopping to you!

Customer Service: The Kate Spade Story

February 22, 2016

I must admit. I wasn’t a Kate Spade fan from the beginning. When everyone around me seemed to be carrying her microfiber black purses I didn’t get it. If I had to label my fashion sense, it would have to be something like bohemian preppy. And those little black purses just didn’t do it for me.

Fast forward a few years and a few Kate Spade bags later, and she’s become one of my favorite brands. Not only because of her style and color choices, but because of the company’s customer service. A couple of years ago, I received one of her watches for Christmas.

I looked through my pictures and couldn’t find one of the front of the watch.

 

It was a beautiful gold rose shade and my favorite part was the belt. But shortly after receiving the watch, the clasp would unlatch by itself. I still loved the watch so much, that I would wear it knowing I would have to continuously close the clasp.

A few weeks ago I finally remembered to bring the watch to the Kate Spade store at the International Mall in Tampa. My wish was to be able to purchase a replacement belt. After a short wait for the manager, she explained to me that there was a defect on the belt. She asked me to go pick out a new watch from their display counter.

Customer service

Same watch face, silver belt.

I couldn’t believe it. I asked her again just to make sure I understood her correctly. Mind you, I did not have the receipt with me as the watch had been purchased two years ago! I opted for this silver one. Notice it has the same type of belt as my original Kate Spade watch. The new clasp has been upgraded to prevent it from opening on its own.

So, thank you Kate Spade! You’ve got a lifetime customer.

Favorite Lunch Spot in Bartow

February 14, 2016

Working in Bartow has its benefits. Over the past few months, a bunch of new lunch spots have opened up in downtown Bartow making lunch time more fun for this foodie. While these new spots mostly offer the same type of lunch, i.e., salads, sandwiches and soups, their flavors and decor are completely different.
