Late on the Reebok Recall

I was looking up this shoe on line because I have a pair.  I got them about 2 years ago fro T J Maxx.  I thought they were great except for one thing...they seemed a little off balance due to the high cushion on the bottom.  I thought it was just me not having ever worn a shoe like this before.  It is the Reebok Simplytone.  It is the one that was part of the recall and class action suit back in 2009. After finding this out I was shocked.  All claims were paid out by 2011 and Reebok had to pay millions.  I totally missed out on this.  The thing I wonder most is why was this shoe still being sold AFTER the class action?  I know that the discount outlet stores like Marshalls and TJ Maxx sell things that are past season.  I guess these were sitting around in their wharehouse AFTER the lawsuit was over. 
The shoes have been okay.  I have adjusted to the feeling the high cushion on the sole gives.  I have found my balance.  I was having some sore leg and foot issues about 5 months ago and they were the most comfortable shoe I have that is soft an cushy.  They felt the best when I wore shoes.  Now I am not sure what to do with them.
The class action says the shoes are not made properly and actually cause knee and hip issues. I wear them so infrequently that I had not noticed any issues with mine.  I guess I will keep them BUT  I will be looking for  a new pair of athletic shoes in the next two weeks. You just never know! I paid $40 for these shoes.  If I had know I could have gotten a voucher for  new pair of Reeboks.

Baby Shoes!

It is official!  Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have had a baby!  My man!  The babies name is Silas Randall Timberlake!  That is a great name!  I am glad that all is well with that family.  I do love his music.  Ever since he came out with Bringing Sexy Back, he has been my MCE.  You crush everyday!

Ready for the Beach!

Last year I only made it to the beach once the entire year.  I live on the coast so that is just ridiculous.  We have beautiful beaches all around.  My intent this year is to do better.  I only took a staycation last year and I really did not do anything.  I plan to go to the water as many weekends as I can.  I love the beach and our beaches here are beautiful. My favorites are Sullivan's Island, Folly Beach and Kiawah. 

I always feel renewed when I can go to the ocean.  The roar of the waves just take me to another place.  Timeless.  The ebb and flow are mesmerizing. This picture is of Folly Beach, taken a few weeks ago in February. This year I may not have the funds for a big trip, but I will still put on my traveling shoes and head to the beach.

Irish Drinking Toast

When we drink, we get drunk.
When we get drunk, we fall asleep.
When we fall asleep, we commit no sin.
When we commit no sin, we go to heaven.
So, let's all get drunk, and go to heaven!

Irish Blessing

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer
Irish Curse

May those who love us love us.
And those that don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping.

Madonna and Tupac? Who Knew?

 Why is it the world is just finding out that Madonna and Tupac dated? What kind of hell shoes are those?  Why are we all just finding this out now?  And now there are news briefs from Rosie Perez that she was the one who set them up! 

In the world of music where all eyes have been on Madonna and Tupac, it seems impossible that their relationship was a secret for all of this time!  I see that since Madonna was on the Howard Stern show that all sorts of pictures of the two of them from way back then are now finding their way to the web.  Gosh. This one is with my main man Sting! Love him. 

I have always loved Madonna's music but I never listened to any of Tupacs' music when he was alive.  Or even after he died.  Now, here in 2015 I am about to jump on the Tupac train and go back and listen to his music.  I need to see what the world saw in him  because clearly I missed out on  his era.

Careful What You Wish For

 I bought the lovely bag back in December.  Actually I saw it in TJ Maxx and debated for three weeks before putting it on layaway.  I was in love.  It had all things I liked.  It was black, roomy and I loved the fur.  Real!  I had researched the brand, Aqua Madonna and liked what I saw so, I decided to get it. 

Weeks later I was thrilled to get out of  layaway.  It was $129.00.  I got it home and wrapped it and put it under the tree for  Christmas. A gift from me to me.  Well, early January I swapped out my purses and voila!  I was using my new purse.  I just know I looked just like all those skinny girls on pinterest carrying the big tote with the leggings, boots and slouchy sweaters on .  you couldn't tell me nothing.  I took it to work and it looked beautiful on my purse hook at my desk.

What is it about that purse? That thing is damned heavy.  It is all leather trim. suede inside and covered with fur.  It is extremely heavy just like lugging around a side of a cow on your arm.  OMG!  It is so frigging heavy.  It is the heaviest purse I have ever had.  My daughter was even telling me I needed to take it back, it was so heavy.  I wish I had listened to her.  The time to make a Christmas return is long past and I have a purse that is as heavy as the side of a cow to carry around.

At least it is still pretty!

Kim goes Platinum

 '#FBF to last week in Paris'
Kim Kardashian has a new look. Check out the new hair.  I think she has had that color before.  She  is a trend setter, regardless of what people say about her.  It all started with a sex tape but she has risen far above that.  She just needs to keep it classy.   Love the fur!

The Purple Shoes

I saw these shoes at my local Steinmart and they screamed at me to buy them.  Why?  Purple!  I thought they were beautiful and they are a great brand. Bandolino.  I have been buying Bandolino shoes my whole life!  I tried them on in the store and they fit well.  This was about mid November.  I totally forgot about them until today.  I have a fashion event I am attending this week and I am trying to put together my outfit down to the shoes.  I just remembered I bought them. 

That also means that I have 2 days to wear them around the house and break them in.  They are suede with just a little faux crocodile trim.  In my wardrobe, purple goes with any color.  Any!  I can wear these shoes with any dress I have.  They will be the contrast. Most def!  I just hope that the weather will be good this week. I won't wear suede in the rain! 

Most likely people wear suede in the winter only.  Not me!  I wear suede shoes all year.  Plus: “I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.”  Alice Walker, The Color Purple.

Back with a Bang: Madonna!!!

Wow!  Hey!  It has been a minute but sometimes life gets in the way.  Back with a bang!  Me and Madonna! Madonna has always been a favorite of mine!  The original bad girl!  I have loved her music since the 80's. She has a new CD out.  Check it out!  It's great!  She is great.  She is well up there in age now and still looks great.  She has maintained.  You can tell she has had some work done but who in Hollywood hasn't? I heard a recent interview with her and she was talking about the stressors of motherhood..having a teen daughter in college.  Glad to know she is a real mom dealing with SOME of the normal things the rest of us do. Go Madonna!  You still have it.  Her new Cd is Rebel Heart.
