Thank you to Famous Footwear for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own
I have always LOVED the holiday season, but honestly who doesn’t? I love the idea of holiday traditions, being with family and spending time with our loved ones. Doing lots of shopping and giving/receiving the best gifts. But, as Mamas we’re always the ones running around gathering all the things and prepping for the holidays. I know I’m constantly going back and forth to the grocery store every other day. Then I spend hours and hours shopping all day on Black Friday getting all the deals and steals.
So during this time, I need something that’s not just cute, but practical and comfortable. I recently got these Roxy Bayshore sneakers from Famous Footwear and they’re perfect. I love how soft the fabric is and Mamas …there’s an extra bit of memory foam padding inside that really forms to your foot. It’s kinda like walking cloud…Maybe that’s a little excessive, but really these are so comfortable. I mean I’m already planning to take to them Disney with us in a few weeks. But, my favorite part is they’re so easy to slip on quickly when you’re in a hurry.
Besides being comfortable, I’ve put together a list of easy tips for rocking Black Friday.
5 Easy Tips For Rocking Black Friday
Have a plan – leading up to Friday start looking at your favorite stores online. They are already starting to post what their doorbusters and deals will be. This way you can look for everything on your list before you head out and create your plan for which stores you want to hit first.
Set your budget – this is important and where having a plan kicks in. There are always some extra little things next to the checkout line that scream ‘BUY ME’. So either have a built in cushion or even just an ‘extras’ budget.
Go shopping with someone – there’s nothing worse than shopping by yourself. Well at least in my opinion. I’m constantly wanting another opinion, and it’s nice to have someone to chat with while you’re waiting for an hour in line.
Comfortable Shoes – This is a must. Being on our feet all day taking care of everything and everybody we can’t have our feet hurting. So having the perfect shoes is something I don’t mess around with. Famous Footwear has some great slip-on sneakers that are both comfortable and easy to slip on when you’re hands are full. Plus, I even found they have cute matching sneakers for your mini’s. So your kids will be able to run around all day with you!
Take a deep breath and have FUN – just remind yourself it’s the holidays. Sure the sales are good and lines are horrible, but remind yourself to take a deep breath and enjoy it.
The holidays are such a wonderful and cheerful time. Full of laughter and being with those you love. Just remember to take a minute and take it all in.
