Wash Away Labels

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

wash-away-labels

Back-to-school time seems to be all about labels these days. Labels labels everywhere! I am sure I am not the only mom who has been putting labels on her kids’ clothes, shoes, backpack, lunchbox, water bottle, PE uniform and soccer cleats. You want these labels to stick and stay put and not come off in the washing machine. But there are other times when you don’t want the label glued to your item. Like when you head over to the school potluck and you just want to make sure you get your casserole dish back.  Or when you drop off a tray full of snacks to your child’s classroom and you hope to one day see your favorite tray again. Mabel’s Labels has created a line of dissolvable labels are perfect for potluck dishes, bottles for daycare, containers of leftovers, canning jars and much more. They are even freezer and microwave safe. When you no longer want or need the darn label, you simply pop your item into the dishwasher or put it under running water to rinse it right off. Wash Aways™ disappear completely, leaving no sticky residue. If only the same thing could be said for all of the super sticky monster truck stickers my son has put all over the windows in my car…

Trina Turk Sale

TRINA TURK PILLOW EMBROIDERED LINEN GEOMETRIC TILE BLACK TAN

I fell in love with Trina Turk the moment I stepped foot into her Palm Springs shop a decade or so ago. I was obsessed and just wanted everything in the store. The bold colors, the modern prints, the chic patterns, the whole mid-century California vibe just sucked me right in. In fact I literally wanted to move right in to the store and live there forever. I just loved how the floor was covered with these spectacular white pebbles and I still dream of the day I can redo the foyer of my home to look just like the shop. Until that day comes I can obsess about Trina Turk pillows and rugs and fabrics….

I just found out that one of Sweet Peas & Stilettos favorite partners, Layla Grayce, is offering a 15% off Trina Turk now through 9/30/13 so of course I had to spread the word. Here is the promo code to use: TRINA15. In addition, you can also save an additional 15% off already reduced sale items at Layla Grace with the promo code EXTRA15. Don’t miss your chance to shop furniture, home decor, fashion (super cute handbags & iPhone covers!), baby and more with prices as low as $5! I hope you find a few items you love at prices you adore. Happy Shopping!

Photo Book Sale

blurb-book-idea-promo-code

I will be the first to admit that planning beyond tomorrow just seems impossible these days. I have friends who are making plans for the Christmas holidays while I am still trying to enjoy the end of summer. And even though I don’t have a clue where my family is headed for Thanksgiving – I do know that Blurb has a ‘Thank You’ Sale going on right now. It is time to download your favorite summer pictures from your cell phone and create some fun photo books to give to your favorite family and friends as a little special thank you gift this holiday. Add a few special words including a special memory or a simple note of thanks to complete your custom photo book. Another fun idea would be to collect a bunch of your family’s favorite Thanksgiving recipes and include a few crazy pictures of your cousins and grandparents and create a keepsake everyone will treasure for generations to come. Make your books (hard copy or electronic) this weekend so you can take advantage of this special Thank You promotion and you can cross one more thing off of your to-do list. Enjoy 15% OFF your order now through Monday, September 9th, 2013.

Oh wait – I almost forgot – the promo code you will want to enter is TAKE15. Let me know what kind of book you end up making!

With fall right around the corner it is time to shop for a new pair of boots. I’ve been on the hunt for some super comfortable everyday boots and I think I found exactly what I am looking for at TOMS. These wonderful Black Wool Stripe Women’s Nepal Boots will keep your toes warm all winter long with a super soft fleece lining. And how cool is the combination of suede, wool and moccasin-inspired whip stitching? This just might be the season to let your Uggs take a little rest on your closet floor…
