The driver showed us inside and said it's used for kid's parties, I would have been thrilled to ride in this as a little girl!

Lovemode Review and $25 GC Giveaway * Closed*

Sponsored by Tomoson.com

Lovemode is a new company that sells affordable juniors clothing online-I'm amazed at how often they get new styles in and there's a huge selection of tops and dresses. On top of their already great prices they often have sales and free shipping. I found their website to be very easy to use and quick to load, and I love how each item is modeled by a real person so you can get a better idea of what it will look like on. The size chart for each individual item is also very helpful.  In the future I would love to see item descriptions as well! The dress I chose for my review is the Navy Blue Lace Dress shown here. I got a medium as the size chart indicated it may be curve hugging, and I'm glad I sized up. The size chart is a reliable indicator of how each item should fit-some items are tighter and some are more blousy and it lets you know in the chart so you don't have to do any guesswork!

I highly recommend this brand for their cute and affordable clubwear and juniors clothing! Lovemode is generously offering to give one of my readers a $25 gift certificate to their website.

Merrell Barefoot Pace Glove Running Shoe

The concept of "barefoot" shoes is pretty new to me, but I love the idea of lightweight running shoes that are flexible enough to do trails with lots of rocks. These seem to fit like a glove and let your leg muscles absorb shock when you run instead of your joints. The human foot has evolved the perfect form to run and I think many sneakers today just don't let your feet function as they should, which leads to everything from blisters to knee pain. These are definitely on my list for this summer, but my favorite color, Dark Shadow, seems to be sold out in my size everywhere right now. They are pretty cute for something so functional!

Jesse Danger Dragonfly Wing Ring 18kt Gold

I love etsy! You never know what you're going to run across. Like this delicate, guilded dragonfly wing pattern ring. The price is a bit steep for me but I think it's such a beautiful piece! If you see a similar style I'd love to know about it!

Black Orchid Women's Raw Edge Shorts

My latest find-Black Orchid Raw Edge Shorts in white. I love that these can go with absolutely anything and are a nice change from typical denim shorts. Very cute and summery!

Saky Sacks Giveaway @ Sweeps4Bloggers

I'm in love with these stylish yet functional reusable shopping bags from Saky Sacks-not only are they super durable, they're also stain resistant and machine washable making them a great choice for groceries (if some chicken juice leaks, you can just toss them in the machine-love that!). Plus they can hold up to 25 pounds! Sweeps4Bloggers is giving away a City Sack to one lucky reader so stop by and check it out-I know I will!
