Eddie Borgo Partners with Target on Customizable Collection

May 21, 2015

I have always been a huge fan of the Target Collaborations for bringing the biggest brand names at affordable prices to us regular shoppers. I am pleased to share that their latest partnership does not disappoint. The retail giant just recently unveiled their next designer, Eddie Borgo which has designed a limited edition collection for Target shoppers that will include a customizable line of jewelry, bags and wall art.

The way it works is that you would choose the main piece such as a necklace or bag and then you can purchase additional charms to give it your personal touch. The jewelry will be completely personal making it fun and unique with his signature motifs such as studs, spikes and pyramids.

His pieces are architecturally modern, but at the same time delicate and flirty. I already have my eye on a fun bucket bag and I know I am going to want an art piece. Items hit stores on July 12th and prices range from $7.99 to $49.99. So mark your calendar ladies.

Video: DIY-How to Make and Outdoor Bench Under $30

This post is brought to you by The Home Depot 

With summer right around the corner, I’m always looking for fun DIY projects for my backyard. So I started doing some research online and found the cutest outdoor bench made by only using cinderblocks and wood. I decided to give it a try and I can’t tell you how easy it is to make.

I took a trip to The Home Depot and bought 6 cinderblocks and 2 4x4 pieces of lumber (which I had cut to 67 inches). The workers at The Home Depot are always so helpful and they helped put the cinderblocks and wood in my cart and carry everything to my car!

Here’s a fun little video I did showing you step-by-step how to make it. 

This bench is perfect for summer barbecues with friends. And speaking of outdoor barbecues, I also spotted some amazing grills at affordable prices at The Home Depot, like this Thrill of the Grill Brinkmann Grill NLP for just $99 or this Nexgrill SB for $199. You can’t go wrong with either. You can also compliment your DIY bench with other patio furniture, which is at up to 15% off at The Home Depot. Hope you have fun creating your own DIY Bench!

May 18, 2015   

I’m always trying to find ways for my toddler to interact with other kids his age and have plenty of play dates, especially since he stays at home with me. But for many new moms like myself, breaking the ice with other moms can be a real challenge. I remember the first time I took my son to the playground; I was a bit shy about approaching other moms. How do you break the ice? What do you say? It can be nerve-wracking. Fortunately, I picked up a few conversation starters that worked every time.

Our contributing writer, Liz de La Nuez recently had the opportunity to go on a press trip to Cleveland and boy was she in love with this charming city.  Today, she's sharing with us some of the many attractions, shopping and dining options that Cleveland has to offer, along with things to do while visiting this hidden gem.

Cleveland Rocks!  When I was invited to visit the city of Cleveland through Jet Blue’s inaugural flight, I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I went on my merry way to Cleveland, Ohio and I will be forever grateful, we discovered a hip and modern community that felt fresh and new. The people we met were all humble, friendly and kind. Everyone that we came in contact with only raved about their city and took such pride in their hometown. People told us heartfelt stories about their connections to Cleveland.
