My Review of J-41 Dune Sandals - Women's


These J-41 Dune sandals are part sandal, part shoe, but all the way rugged and cute!

Nice, but fall apart

I loved these shoes the moment that I saw them in the store. They are very cute and pretty comfy. However after about 2 weeks of wear, the insole started coming up. Problem is, when the insole comes up, the foam lining tears, and chunks fall if you put the insole back in, it feels really strange and not comfy. I'll be taking these back today, but I'm VERY upset that these didn't work out.

Maclaren Giveaway!!!

We just moved from central Illinois to Texas suburbia. Although I really miss Illinois, Texas has it's pluses. Our neighborhood in Illinois had no sidewalks...and wasn't much of a neighborhood (maybe like 15 houses). Here in Texas there are all of these massive planned communities. I'm not much on "cookie cutter" houses and lack of land, but I do like the larger number of parks, walking trails and family activities. The perks of living near a big city. 

That being said....the title of this post is "Giveaway" so...I wanted to post you toward a fabulous giveaway! Fabulous Fun Finds will be giving away a Maclaren Techno Stroller XLR in black and champagne with matching rocker and carrier!!! Coming from the middle of nowhere in Illinois, I hadn't seen this brand (we don't even have a Babies R Us or anything). But here in Texas, I see these strollers EVERYWHERE. These strollers are supersleek, light, fast, and solid. They turn on a dime and fold down (like an umbrella stroller) in second. You can even fold them with a heavy toddler kicking and screaming in your arms! I have a standard, cheap, frumpy umbrella stroller and had no desire to upgrade (let's face it, I rebel against the "poshness"). The Combis, etc didn't seem much different from my $20 stroller. But the Maclaren was totally different and I definitely am beginning to have stroller envy;-) I think the main reason for me wanting this stroller over the one that I already have is that it is SOLID, has a great sunshade and it has STORAGE (mine only has a small bag on the back)...and let's face it, it looks really great! So, head on over to Fabulous Fun Finds for your chance to win!
