Fashion Mission: Shopping for a Tall or Short Fram

If you love wearing fashionable clothing but happen to be really tall or short, looking for ensembles may be challenging. It’s frustrating if you have an upcoming event to attend and you’re struggling to come up with something to wear. Instead of feeling like you don’t have a lot of options when it comes to finding silhouettes that fit you and that you adore, here are some tips on what to look for. It may take some altering of clothing and thinking outside the box, but when you’re done shopping you’ll feel like you have many more options to select from your wardrobe. 

If You’re Really Tall, Find Appropriate Sites Online

Did you know that there are sites online that make clothing available to really tall people? G&L Clothing is one company online that you can shop for big and tall clothing. When you find a company that specializes in 
big and tall clothing and footwear that fits you well, you can feel confident that you’ll be able to find clothing that not only fits you, but clothing that you like. If you have questions regarding sizing, fit, or anything else a quality company will have no problem answering your questions. 

If You’re Really Short, Alter Clothing

It may seem like a hassle, but if you happen to find clothing that you love but it’s too long in length, it’s a lot easier to have the clothing altered as opposed to trying to find clothing that isn’t long enough. If you’re concerned about the extra cost of the item of clothing plus the alteration charge, go to a second hand store and find a pair of quality jeans, for example, instead. It will cost you a lot less to find a pair of great jeans at a second hand store and take it to the tailor as opposed to buying a brand new pair and getting them altered in addition.  

Sew Your Own Clothing

If you happen to be an artsy person or you are good with your hands why not give sewing a shot? Often times you can find free classes at a nearby school or you can teach yourself with a book or online guidance. Making your own clothing will help you ensure that you wear what you love and further more you’ll have a new skill that potentially will help you in other areas of life down the road. 

Ask Tall or Short Friends Where They Find Their Clothing

Word of mouth is always great, especially if your friends are as tall or short as you are. Ask your friends where they found their most recent tee-shirt you love and hopefully you can find the same one at the store where they found it! Better yet, if you have a friend who loves to shop, ask them if they want to be your shopping buddy. Together you can encounter shops that have clothing that works for your body types. You can spread the word to your other friends and feel happy that you have a few reliable companies you can count on for quality and stylish clothing.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
