Express Jeans For Her: Born to Rock the Sidewalk, Bred to be Epic.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Express for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Many western films were made in Hollywood in the 1930's and many stars wore denim jeans. In the 1950's, denim became popular again and people called them jeans from that point on. Since the 1950's, jeans have been incorporated into what people wear on a daily basis.

Express jeans came on the scene in 1980. The store was originally called Limited Express. I remember going into the Limited Express stores in junior high and thinking they had the most amazing clothing. I started high school in 1986 (wow, I'm dating myself) and also remember all the popular girls in high school always had clothing from the Limited. I was only lucky enough to get 1-2 items from The Limited.

For as long as I can remember, has had great jeans. They offer a variety of women's jeans styles including boot cut, barely boot cut, flare, skinny, straight, skyscraper, wide leg to the ever so popular jean leggings:


I personally love the crop Zelda jean legging:

The Zelda cropped jeans resemble cropped pants from the 1950's. The denim is dark, which gives a slimming appearance and they are made of a cotton/spandex blend. They look like the fit in all the right places. They're so cute!

No matter what type of jeans you like or wear, you can find what you are looking for at

Missoni for Target. Was it worth all the hype?

Yesterday was the first day the Missoni line for Target was released.
There were many discussions on Facebook as well as Instagram about the line and how all stores were sold out and the Target website was even down. Come to find out, Target had created a virtual line for their website and the front page would refresh every thirty seconds and open up when it was your turn.
I kept my browser open and finally got my turn to get into the website. While I thought the items were cute, I don't think this line was certainly worth the hype. What do you think?

"I love my mom"

A few days ago, I was laying in bed acting as if I was still sleeping. My cute little four and a half year old son was next to me. He cuddled up behind me and whispered, "I love my mom". So sweet!

Upromise Celebrates its 10th Anniversary! What's your dream?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of UPromise for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Upromise is celebrating its 10th Anniversary by giving away $20,000 to users who share a story that tells how a parent has supported a child's dream! Upromise members have received more than $600 million in college savings through their rewards program, and it wants to celebrate all of the ways it has helped to fuel those sparks that made children into the people they are today and the adults they will become tomorrow.

Users can participate in the sweepstakes by submitting a story, and can vote on their favorite stories by “liking” them. Upromise will give away $1,000 to 10 winners and a grand prize winner for $10,000 will be selected from the participants as well.

Here's my dream I submitted:

I grew up in the 1970's to parents who were children themselves. Neither my mother nor father went to college. My parents divorced when I was nine years old.  I grew up in Texas with my father. I never did exceptionally well in school. My father used to tell me I was not college material. When I was twenty-seven years old, I decided I was ready for college. I moved to Chicago and earned my degree in fashion design. Several years later, I earned my MA. Ed. I had to work full time while earning both degrees, which was very challenging.

I dream my son will someday have the luxury to earn as many degrees as he wants and not have to work while attending school.

Upromise invites you to join the movement, share your experiences and give a spark to help fuel the flame of their future dreams. This is an amazing opportunity to win a significant amount of money. I encourage my readers to visit and submit your dream. I would also like to see this contest promoted via Facebook, Twitter and your own blogs. You can also visit dream wall official rules to learn more about the rules of the contest.
