Happy Father’s Day From Lugz #Review #Giveaway

lugz_hireslogo_new

With Father’s Day just around the corner, I can’t think of a better gift to give Dad than a fresh pair of kicks.  Dad’s always seem to put themselves last and their shoe game is ‘lacking’ to put it politely.  Lugz has lots of new arrivals with tons of styles for every man, so no matter what dad’s style is, you can find the pair that are just right for him.  I’m sure you all know by now how much I love Lugz, so it should come as no surprise I’ve chosen a fashionable pair of their sneakers for my husband to sport around town.

LugzCollage.jpg

The Strife sneaker is all new from Lugz and it has quickly become one of my favorite men’s styles they offer.  These sneakers may be casual, but they sure do take an outfit from good to great in a matter of a few seconds.  You’ll be noticed in these Lugz and everyone will want to know where you got them.

True to Lugz fashion, my husband says these sneakers in incredibly comfortable.  He’s on his feet all day in steel-toe work boots so when it’s time to go out, he doesn’t want to wear uncomfortable shoes.  Lugz always have a comfortable fit which is great to be able to rely on.  The padded tongue and collar allow for extra comfort while the cotton lining offers extra softness for tired feet.

PRODUCT DETAILS:

  • Ripstop canvas upper
  • Cotton drill lining
  • Padded tongue and collar
  • Pull loop for easy on

If you’re not a huge fan of red, these Strife sneakers are also available in a couple different colors so you can compliment your style individually.

Take Your Sneaker Game To A Whole New Level With Lugz

lugz_hireslogo_new

It should come as no surprise to you guys by now that I just LOVE Lugz!  I got to try out the new Lugz Seabrook sneakers and just like every other Lugz shoe I’ve worn, they are fabulous!

LugzSeabrook.jpg

These have got to be some of the cutest sneakers I’ve ever owned.  I love how the black/white/fuchsia combine together for a classic look while offering a pop of color that say “look at me, notice me, adore me”.  I was curious how these shoes would work out for me, I have high arches in my feet and these looked a little flat (although incredibly adorable).  I don’t know if I’m a genius or just plain crazy, but I figured what better day to try them out than a day I’ll be on my feet, A LOT!  If you’re a frequent reader of mine, you’ll know that I live SUPER far from the closest town (including grocery store, doctors, post office, anything really…it’s 25 miles from my house one way) so when I go into town, I make a day of it.

LugzSeabrook2.jpg

Tuesday of this week was sink or swim for me and my new Lugz.  After going to 4 different grocery stores and coming home, I realized I had forgotten some much needed things and my stop at the bank.  BACK into town I went to finish my forgotten errands, all while scrambling to make it to my daughter’s kindergarten registration on time that evening.  I left my house at 8:30 am and wasn’t home until almost 6 that evening.  I have to tell you guys, I am SO incredibly thankful I decided to try out my Seabrook sneakers that day.  My feet felt better than ever, even after all they had been through!  The shoes were supportive enough that my arches didn’t ache, my toes didn’t hurt, and best of all, my back didn’t even hurt…what a world of difference a great supportive shoe can make!  I promise you guys, once you try these Seabrook sneakers, you’ll want a pair in every color.

PRODUCT DETAILS:

  • Canvas upper
  • Cotton drill lining
  • Waxy finish laces
  • Metal eyelets & classic Lugz hardware
  • Durable rubber outsole

These sneakers are available in 7 different colors, and would make the perfect gift for any mom this Mother’s Day!

***GIVEAWAY***

Lugz has been generous enough to sponsor a giveaway!  One lucky winner will receive a pair of Lugz Seabrook sneakers in your choice of color and size!  Giveaway will begin 05/04/17 at 10:30 am EST and will end 05/11/17 10:30 am EST.  Winner will have 48 hours to claim their prize or another winner will be chosen.  All giveaway entries will be validated.  Winners are randomly selected.  Click the link below to enter:

Our 30 Day Nutro Ultra Dog Food Adventure…Halfway Through And Loving The Results

NutroUltraLogo

As you all know by now, I am trying out Nutro Ultra dog food, courtesty of Chew.com,  with my senior dog Hermes and I thought I’d check in with all of you and let you know how we’ve been doing.

Nutro3.jpg

You’ll all remember this handsome face…I mean…how could you not?  Hermes is my old dude that needed a little TLC in his life.  We embarked on a 30 day adventure trying out Nutro Ultra Senior Dry Dog Food and Nutro Ultra Senior Wet Dog Food a couple weeks ago and so far I am loving the results I’ve seen.  I did mention in the first post that the switch initially made him gassy, but after a few days that subsided and we started to see some major improvements in Hermes.

Nutro4.jpg

Nutro seems to have reversed the signs of aging a bit which can be a difficult task for any product on a 13 year old dog.  The dander that Hermes was afflicted by has nearly vanished, and he seems to be much more comfortable with flake and itch free skin.  My family and I have also noticed a new-found level of energy that we hadn’t seen from Hermes and we’ve been thoroughly enjoying playing with this old man like he were a puppy…it’s one of the most adorable things you’ll ever see!  It also appears that when Hermes is settling in for a nap he is much more comfortable and gets to sleep much easier.  In the past, Hermes has had some trouble getting comfy for a nap and would roll around in the bed and make noises that I call his “old man groans” until he finally found a comfy position to lay in.  These days Hermes is having a blast playing around and getting right to sleep when he climbs into one of his dog beds.  It appears that my old man is living a better quality of life and it’s all thanks to Nutro!

***GIVEAWAY***

Thanks to the generosity of Chewy.com and Nutro, you have a chance to try out the Nutro formula of your choice!

One lucky winner will be able to chose the formula they’d like to try and have it shipped to them courtesy of Chewy.com!  Giveaway will begin 04/02/17 at 4 PM EST and will end 04/30/17 at 11:59:59 PM EST.  Winner will have 48 hours to claim their prize or another winner will be chosen.  All giveaway entries will be validated.  Winners are randomly selected.  Click the link below to enter:

Our 30 Day Nutro Ultra Dog Food Adventure…First Thoughts and Hopeful Expectations #Review #Giveaway

NutroUltraLogo.jpg

NutroUltraSenior.jpg

I’m sure all of you know by now that I am an animal lover, and have a house full of furkids.  When Chewy.com offered me the chance to try out Nutro dog food for 30 days I was absolutely ecstatic!  I have a recently adopted senior pet that could really benefit from Nutro Ultra Senior dog food and I’m super excited to share this little experiment with you all.

Nutro11.jpg

If you’re a frequent reader of my blog, I’m sure you’ll remember back in January when we added a new furbaby to our family.  When a local “rescue” was closed down by the county, there were 200 dogs needing immediate homes which is a big task to accomplish especially in our little tiny town.  I just knew that we had to help out, and although we could only adopt one, at least it was something.  I sought out the senior dogs as they are the most overlooked in adoption situations, sadly.  After my husband, myself, and my three children spent a couple hours meeting all of the dogs, we knew that “kennel #52” was our dog.  No dog should live without a name so before we even signed the adoption paperwork we named him Hermes…the perfect compliment to our other dog, Venus.  This sweet 13 year old has quickly become a great family dog, but I just haven’t been able to find a good food for him.

Nutro104.jpg

I’m sure you can imagine that at 13 years old, there are a few issues with our handsome guy.  He’s got dander, he can’t see too great anymore, and he has a hard time going to the bathroom sometimes.  I can’t wait to see how the next 30 days go using Nutro Ultra Senior Dry Dog Food and Nutro Ultra Senior Wet Dog Food.

NutroUltraDryFood2.jpg

I am pretty impressed with the quality of ingredients in Nutro Ultra Senior Dry Dog Food.  REAL CHICKEN is the first ingredient…what dog or pet-parent wouldn’t appreciate that?  This Nutro Ultra Holistic Superfood Blend contains the perfect mix of premium lean proteins, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, whole grains and healthy oils to help your dog be at his/her best.  Combined protein sources from high-quality natural and holistic ingredients ensure optimal Amino Acid levels and great taste for your dog.

NutroUltraWetFood2.jpg

It should be no surprise that the Nutro Ultra Senior Wet Food is full of greatness as well.  Nutro’s natural wet dog food tastes great and helps provide the nutrients every senior dog needs.  You can clearly see the whole vegetables in the wet food which means you know exactly what your dog is getting.

Nutro12.jpg

Hermes loves his wet and dry food served up to him mixed together and doesn’t like change much, so I decided that I will keep with his routine and mix the wet and dry together.  You can see that the new food went over really well with Hermes…he even licked the bowl clean which he never does, he lets my other dog do for him.

Today is day 2 on the Nutro Ultra Senior food and so far, so good.  Hermes is a little gassy today, but that’s something any pet parent should anticipate with a diet change.  I’m pretty confident that his gut will adjust in the next couple days and hopefully we’ll start seeing some benefits from the new food.
