“The One Stop Shop For Women”
Life is too short to blend in! Mix it up!
I purchased these boots off Amazon because I had a $30 coupon I could use towards them. I hadn’t seen them in the store yet, so I wasn’t sure if they were going to be as awesome in person as they were on the site, and it turns out they weren’t. They were even more awesome! When you open the box you get that new leather smell that lets you know you bought the real thing. Not that I don’t love some of my cheaper boots because they are all fantastic in their own way, but it’s nice to treat yourself to a nice pair every now and again.
I didn’t buy the brown boot with red zipper or the lighter brown boot with lavender zipper, as shown. I purchased the black ones with the blue zipper and gold studs. We are in the middle of moving, and I can’t find my camera, so I posted pictures I found of the other two colors. Anyways, my calves are a little muscular, and I usually have a little trouble with boots that zip up. I was a little nervous when I put these on because they felt a little tight around there, but after wearing them a few hours they loosened up and now they are the perfect fit. The small heel is really sturdy, and the craftsmanship of the studs and zipper is really quite phenomenal.
One word of advice, the bottom of the back zipper kind of digs in your heel if you go barefoot, so make sure you have on a thick jegging/jean if you want to do that. Otherwise, I would suggest wearing a sock with them.
I recommend these Steve Madden Lynet boots to each and every one of you. They really are fantastic.
Remember if you follow the link and purchase them off Amazon, check and see if they have any coupons listed. That’s how I got such a good deal on them!
Happy shopping!Read More

Power Lead Systems is a new business coming to market. There is already lots of hype surrounding it and we have noticed. In this Power Lead System review, we will break down the hype, focus on the facts and provide you with a transparent overview of this new program.
Power Lead System is being touted as an extremely powerful business with a great product to back it up. Its still very new and the amount of buzz surrounding it continues to grow by the day. When something so new starts getting so much attention from the marketplace so fast, you have to question why:
The Power Lead System product is exactly what it sounds like – A lead generation and marketing system. It contains several tools all in one place. They include:
As you can tell, the Power Lead System team is attempting to set themselves up as the go-to tool suite for home and online business owners. It is worth mentioning that the tool suite product has been around for a long time already. It is actually in use by some of the more well-known marketers in the industry.
The difference here is that Power Lead System takes these tools and makes them available publicly with a 100% commission-based compensation plan.
Overall the tools and product look to be proven and tested. They have obviously already been developed and tweaked in the marketplace so that is a good sign.
But what about the Power Lead System business opportunity and compensation plan side of things?
The compensation plan is one similar to that of Empower Network. Basically the company pays out 100% commissions on every sale made by their affiliates.
Now obviously the company has to make money somewhere in order to sustain and grow the business. And they do this by charged a monthly reseller feed of $23.97 to their affiliates, which is also very similar to what Empower does.
Empower Network certainly has their fans and their critics, but there is one thing you cannot deny about the 100% commission business model they popularized – it works very well for growing a company quickly and is very lucrative for their members.
With Power Lead System following a similar pattern, they are hoping to prime themselves for explosive growth. And given all the hype that has built up so fast around this company – it appears to be working at least up to this point.
In our opinion, the product offering is a good one and has already been proven in the real marketplace. And the business model, while still being tested for Power Lead System, is definitely one that has seen lots of recent success with other companies.
So everything is good so far, but where is the business lacking?
Well there is no such thing as the perfect business, and Power Lead System is one them. There are 2 primary concerns we have that will be explored:
The first concern is one that is common in this industry. The team an affiliate joins is probably the biggest factor when it comes to their success. This industry is built on working within a team framework.
If that team framework is weak or non-existant, then affiliates will often find themselves without the support they need to really grow a new business.
However, when an affiliate finds the right team, they get access to systems, education, coaching and other resources that can really help them scale their business very fast. There is no replacement for joining a good team that provides you with everything you need – its like a “business in a box” that allows you to grow fast when properly utilized. More on this later…
The second concern comes down to a common issue with companies that launch in this niche – standard websites, standard marketing tools, and standard business opportunities.
This makes it very hard for affiliates, especially those new to the idea of owning a business, to compete.
Ironically, the solution to both of these issues can be solved with one single unified solution: Find a good team that provides you with tools and resources to help you grow your business and make you more competitive.
And our Power Lead System team has done exactly that. We have built up a complete marketing and support system that you can get for free when you join our team.
The system we have in place provides you with all of the following:
We make all of this available to you for free. All you have to do is join our Power Lead System team – click the link below, type in your email and you’ll be taken to a video that shows you all the details.

I’m always drawn to things involving shopping. I don’t care that I’m a woman and it’s a cliché, it’s accurate. When my fiancé presented me with an option to spend money and make money, I was immediately intrigued and decided I would see what it was all about.
While looking around the internet, I saw that there were both positive and negative reviews. Some thought the program was questionable, and others thought it was the most amazing thing they had ever used. Any company that has successfully amassed millions of members within a short time will generate lot of confusion and discussion. Before you go signing up for Lyoness or any other type of venture you need to practice diligence and get the 411 on it. Hopefully, I can help you out with that.
Let me present you with Lyoness! It’s a shopping network that offers its members a cash back program that allows them to earn money on their purchases and the purchases of people they’ve referred. The best part about it is that the membership with the company is free. I don’t know about you, but I like free.
How does it work as a buyer?
As with any program I review or suggest, I went ahead and signed up for the Lyoness program last week.
Let’s start with the money because that is what you are really interested in! The Lyoness cash back program is pretty straightforward. Once you successfully reach a set amount in the cash back account, it will be automatically transferred to your bank account.
You can earn money when you shop at any partner establishment. From what I have seen so far, there are a large variety of online retailers, such as Lucky Brand, Gap, and Banana Republic. There are also offline retailers available by region. Aside from direct buys, you can earn money off of gift cards. I tried this with my gas purchases. You can buy gift cards for various retailers, including some gas companies. I purchased a $50 gift card to BP and earned money off of the gift card purchase. Then I went to BP and filled up my car just like I would have done with my debit card. Super easy!
As I said before it is completely free to join, but if you want to use it as a side business you will be required to make a purchase from their program. For me it was a pair of shoes from Lucky Brand. I was going to make the purchase anyway, so I did it through the system so that I could go ahead and get activated. You do not have to make a purchase to use the system for yourself. You can sign up and take your time looking through everything and use it when you want to make cash back on something. It’s not complicated in that regard.
How does it work as a seller?
Essentially Lyoness works the same way whether you are shopping for yourself or referring people into the system. As a sponsor, you will earn money off the purchases of people they’ve sponsored. All these earnings are sent back to your business member’s account.
As mentioned before, Lyoness is designed to help you save money on purchases you are already going to make, but if they want to make a little money on the side you can. How would you do that? Share it! Just remember, it’s not a selling program. It’s something for you to share with your relatives, friends, work colleagues, networking communities, neighbors, and so on. You can share it with people you personally know or come into contact with. It doesn’t require you to go door to door to do business, unless of course that is what you want to do.
Now many sites on the internet are already discussing the viability of the program and the earning potential of the system. Simply put, if you sponsor more people to join your shopping network, you can earn more through their purchases. The larger the team you have, the more you are going to earn. That said, if you just want to use this system for yourself and to save money on your purchases, it is just as beneficial. It doesn’t require you to sponsor within it like other online programs. It just benefits you if you do.
* Lyoness uses a cash back program to boost the shopping activity and savings for its members.
* The number of shops in their network and the ones that accept the gift cards may vary depending upon your location. Therefore, once you sign up for your free membership check this before you recommend it to someone else. You want to make sure it has retailers you can use in your area. Otherwise it doesn’t benefit you or people you sponsor.
* If you are looking to make money off of this program, the more referrers you have in the Lyoness network will create a higher profit for you.
*It’s free to join Lyoness.
*This is not the traditional mlm or network marketing business that you are used to. It’s recommending a free service to people.
*Lyoness members ONLY spend their money for things they are already going to buy. There are no Lyoness specific products that they sell you. No Lyoness face cream or Lyoness vitamins. It’s composed of retailers and products you already use.
As of today, Lyoness has more than 2.8 million members around the world. The company has proven to be quite valuable to many members and is definitely worth looking into. I’m always looking for a good deal and the coupon of the day, so this is a perfect program for me. If you are interested in it, contact me with any additional questions.

Last summer Kate Spade had this amazing Cobble Hill Satchel in turquoise. Unfortunately, I did not have the funds to buy the little gem at the time. Thanks to my growing internet marketing business, I do now! I’m so excited!
However, the Cobble Hill Little Minka Satchel is no longer available in turquoise, but it is available in firoza which is really close to last year’s shade. It’s just got a little more blue than green to it.
When Kate Spade crafted this bag she was inspired by the residential Brooklyn enclave known for its historic distric and 19th century homes. The Cobble Hill Satchel’s have a little old world class to them. I would more than likely carry this bag by hand, but if you want to throw it over your shoulder it comes with a crossbody strap.
As all the fashion magazines tell me, mint green is huge this season! This bag comes in that hue as well. It’s a little light for me, but it may be a better fit for you.

As many of you know, I’m getting married to a wonderful man!
As many of you may not know, planning a wedding sucks.
Hey hey hey…don’t freak out. I love my fiancé, I’m truly blessed to have such a fantastic Christian man. However, planning a wedding still sucks.
Pinterest shows pictures of smiles, laughs, and gorgeous color schemes. Pinterest makes this gig look easy, and I don’t want to hurt any of your feelings but Pinterest lied.
It’s hard, it’s expensive, and everyone has an opinion on what will look best for your special day. As a result, I felt compelled to give you guys a little advice to make the process go more magically.
Set some sort of budget…make it reasonable. I’m a budgeter by nature so this wasn’t difficult. What was difficult was sticking to it. The grass is always greener on the other side, so I made sure not to go see the other side. I set a maximum amount of what I was willing to spend on the venue, and I did not entertain anything that did not fall within that number. I wouldn’t even go look at them. Why do you ask? Because seeing something you want and knowing that you can’t afford it is torture, and it drives you to do stupid things. Like break the budget.
I followed this philosophy with invitations, catering, and yes…even the dress. I told everyone that went dress shopping with me that they would have to pay the difference if they brought me a dress outside of my budget, had me try it on, and made me fall in love with it. Turns out, no one really wants to pony up for that so they tend to be a little less pushy with their tastes when you put that on the table.
Look over the things on the “to do” list that you can do yourself. It’s time consuming, but it’s less expensive. When I went to look at florists, they were charging around $150/per bouquet. I started doing the math and realized a florist would end up costing me around $3,000. For flowers…that get this guys… die. I’m pretty crafty so I decided to look around for other options, and the internet is full of how to videos. Use them. They are your friend. I found a How to Guide for Making a Bridal Bouquet. It’s super easy, and you can get everything done for under $500. Not to mention, when you look around the room on your special day you will see you in every part of it. Not the vision someone else had for you, but your vision.Read More
