Okay so December was a balmy 70 in New York City but how quickly things change. Now that we’ve gone from tropics to tundra, I’m pulling out the puffer coats, earmuffs, and winter boots so I can make it through those surprise knee-deep puddles that disguise themselves as a little harmless slush . With that, here are three of my favorite, tried-and-tested winter boot styles that I love because they’re all waterproof, toasty warm, relatively affordable, and guaranteed to last for many frigid moons.

Web coolness: Action figures for girls, a must-hear rap for kids, and a most interesting nail trend.
Here are some of the things we’re liking around the web this week. Hope you like them too. One of our favorite small toy brands, I Am Elemental, is now out with a complete set of their action figures for girls that champion powers like honesty, bravery and courage. Super cool.

And have you checked out the Cool Mom Eats holiday gift guide? Amazing stuff. Yum. 14 cool custom photo gifts, the...Read More
Each year, we love putting together some of our favorite gifts that give back in substantial and specific ways — not just some undetermined percentage of your purchase going to “charities.” While we try to share these kinds of gifts year round, it has special meaning to us today on #GivingTuesday, in which we take a moment to count our proverbial blessings, while finding ways that we can do good for others. Now we know that with Giving Tuesday coming right on the heels of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday (phew) you may be experiencing a little bit of shopping...Read More
Winter is coming. Which just means Sorel boot season for some of us, and not a new season of Game of Thrones. (Sorry.)
You Game of Thrones fans are all “Winter is coming!” and when this non-fan (yes, I know) hears it, all it means to me is “Time to buy boots!” And yes, we’ve featured a slew of cool ankle boots already, but if you’re in the market for a new winter boot, then you’ll want to take a peek at the ones I’ve noticed some of our staff sharing with each other through email and Facebook.

A ton of empowering Halloween costume ideas for women and girls. In other words, no sexy cop, sexy nurse, or sexy serial killer.
I knew the whole sexy Halloween costumes for women thing had jumped the shark (the sexy shark?) when I saw a sexy Freddy Krueger costume in our local costume shop. Not even kidding; we talked about it on a recent episode of Spawned. So if you — or your girls — are still trying to figure out a costume to wear on Halloween that doesn’t require a bustier, you may be as thrilled as I was to discover Take Back Halloween, a site to inspire women with costumes that honors their heroines or heritage. a very clever site with the subhead, for...Read More
The ultimate source for hip, hand-knit hats and accessories. Whether you are the one hand-knitting them or no freaking way.
First, you have to laugh at a shop called Wool and the Gang. (Take a sec…okay, there you go.) But when you look at their amazing selection of hand-knit accessories, and the knitting patterns you can buy, it turns out it’s a massive resource for hip, cheeky accessories that can update your wardrobe for winter. While they have all kinds of scarves, sweaters, and other goodies for men, women, and kids, I’ve mainly got my eye on the funky hand-knit hats to help me beat the winter chill with a smile. The thing that’s exceptionally cool about this company is that...Read More
I was so in love with Kristen’s photo of her super stylish daughter on Instagram sporting some cool knee socks, and she admitted to me that her daughter stole them from her own sock drawer! That’s when I realized, this is one of those few times that a fashion trend started with kids then jumped to the adults. It’s a fact — fun socks for women are everywhere you look, peeking out of pumps, booties, knee-boots, layered over fishnets…you name it. And I’m loving it. Especially because it’s such an affordable way to punch up your wardrobe ,and even show off your...Read More

Fall is my favorite time of the year, because boots! Also coffee and pumpkin spice and back to school, but cool boots are way up there. Right now I’m thinking about ankle boots, because it’s really still too warm to be wearing anything taller than that. Plus, they’ll go with anything all season long — from jeans to a little black dress. You can even get three seasons out of lots of styles. I’ve been doing a lot of shopping around to see what’s new and cool in the classic boot styles I think you’ll want to consider for your closet this fall. From stilettos to moto...Read More

If you’ve been using our sponsor Plenti, or if you’re considering joining their rewards program (hey, it’s free to join after all), we thought we’d take you on a little virtual shopping trip through Macy’s.
