CitySlips Flats Review & Exclusive 20% Discount

July 13, 2012 by  
Filed under Accessories

I love my heels…I really do…but after a countless long days with the kids and marathon nights of merengue, it’s really taking a toll! But sometimes miracles really do come in small comfy packages. CitySlips recently sent me a pair of adorable ballerina flats to review and ever since they come with me wherever I go.

Now when I wear my heels for a night on the town and need to switch to a pair of flats (but still want to look chic) I slip out the super stylish clutch that holds these ingenious little beauties.

So what are CitySlips?  CitySlips® is the “total package” solution to a crippling (literally) problem. Their innovative split-sole structure and comfy elastic backing allow them to fold neatly and securely into a compact carrying case. Once the flats have been removed, the small pouch unzips and expands, becoming a full-size tote bag. Throw those heels inside and enjoy a more comfortable commute home, or another few hours on the dance floor.

I’m going to go ahead and call these my go-to flats from now on because they really are the whole package.  And you can enjoy a pair at 20% off using code fashiongrail at checkout.  Check out the rest of CitySlips selection here –

Inspirational Student Spotlight

July 5, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

As a parent it’s a given that we want to be a role model to our kids. But sometimes life gives us these little gifts and it’s the child that provides the inspiration.   My stepson, Douglas, has always been actively involved in community projects like food drives throughout high school, but little did I know that it was only the start of a passion to give back in every imaginable way.  Today, only a year away from graduating college, he has already worked in every office there (President’s Office, Admissions, Advancement, Financial Aid, Business Office, and Academics Office) and tutors and mentors other students on a weekly basis.

From a charitable perspective, Douglas has racked up an impressive checklist that only gets longer every year: Through his college, Douglas went to the Appalachia region (one of the poorest regions in the U.S.) to help repair homes.  This August he leaves for India as part of an internship with his school to perform humanitarian work (going to a leper colony, school for handicapped, feeding the poor). To round 2012, Douglas is slated to go to Liberia to assist in the development of a school to meet the educational needs of the children after a civil war there.  Of course, all of this is in addition to his several trips to Nicaragua with his church.  And when I told him I was going to do a post about his penchant for giving back he said, “don’t forget to mention that I like to take long walks on the beach!”  Yeah, he’s gonna be a fun one to watch!
