I ♥ The Marika Slimming Capri!

My Dear Friends,

I recently had the opportunity to review the Marika Slimming Capri.  I was kind of nervous about them when I pulled them out of the box.  They looked like leggings to me.  I was worried about them looking like leggings, or being too tight, or worse...highlight 'every bump in the road', if you know what I mean.

My concerns were unfounded.  I really like these capri pants!  They feature a power mesh waistband and side leg panels for compression & comfort.  What I found really awesome is that they have a hidden media pocket in the back waistband.  They also feature a gusset lining to wick away moisture.  They're 92% Nylon & 8% Spandex so the material is very comfortable.  The style is the #MMK578001 and they retail for $60....but if you use code "MIRACLES", you can get 20% off your order!

I've worn mine almost every time I go walking & when I work out.  They're SO comfortable and I don't feel self conscious at all!  Do yourself a favor and get the Marika Slimming Capri today!

New Kushyfoot Spring/Summer Products!

My Dear Friends,

I love Kushyfoot products.  I really do.  I've got the Kushyfoot Ballet Flats To Go and I love them.  Actually, I keep them in my purse at all times just in case I need them, they're that great.  Over the past few years the Kushyfoot Company has expanded by leaps and bounds.  They now carry trousers, knee highs, foot covers, toe covers, athletic socks, tights, foot & toe cushions and cute little flats! 


Their line of flats massage the wearers' feet with every step; relieving weary aching feet while alleviating stress and tension.  Recently, Kushyfoot debuted a collection of new products for Spring/Summer 2012.  The new line consists of sole massaging packable flats in open toe and sandal silhouettes plus foot covers galore! 

The new Kushyfoot Spring/Summer 2012 additions are the Peep Toe (#3631, in Cream or Slate) and Sandals (#3632, in Black).  These new styles from the Flats To GO Collection still have the same super comfortable three-dimensional massaging stole for relief from high heels.  They're lightweight and portable, meaning they're perfect to store in a drawer, purse or car.

The big change from the traditional styles is that these are now in an open toe Peep Toe or open toe, side and back Sandals.  Sizes run 5/6, 7/8 and 9/10 and are a steal at $9.99 per pair, packed in a cute mini-purse style package. 

Order online through Kushyfoot and get 20% off and FREE standard ground shipping on all orders over $35.

FRAAS Animal Print Scarves

My Dear Friends,

You've got to see the new FRAAS Spring/Summer Animal Print Scarf.  Unless you live under a rock, you'll know that animal print is a huge trend, and has been for a while.  It creates a bold statement and can be worn as an outfit with minimal accessories or as complimentary accessories to an outfit.

FRAAS recognized the trend and created their own spin on the animal print craze.  Pairing the escalating interest in scarves and wraps with the long standing animal print trend, FRAAS is right on point.  The scarves are very versatile.  They can be worn to accessorize most any type of outfit.

If you're a girl into fashion, it won't be hard for you to find a way to incorporate this scarf into your wardrobe.  It's made of a lightweight material so it can be worn during the Spring/Summer season as well as Fall/Winter.  The scarf clocks in at 28 x 80 inches so it could also be worn as a wrap or sarong swimsuit cover-up!  It's perfect for traveling as it takes up very little space and is completely wrinkle free!

The Spring/Summer 2012 Collection of scarves features flattering mid tone and neutral shades.  The leopard print scarf (style #393085) comes in three color palettes - pink, green and brown.  They retail for $40.

Hush Puppies Spring Break Collection + Discount Code!

My Dear Friends,

I'd like to show off my new slippers, if that's okay?  They're the new Hush Puppies slippers by Grandoe, which is part of the Hush Puppies Spring Break Collection for Spring/Summer 2012.

The Spring Break Collection is all about plush, plaids & prints.  The link consists of casual and unique slipper styles and is very appealing to both men and women.  These are perfect for lounging around the house, at the pool or beach, or even walking your dog.

The featherweight outsole is lightweight, which I like because I don't like to hear my flip flops clomp on the ground - but they're durable as well.  I've worn them like crazy and there are no scuffs to be seen.

The 'Willow' and 'Ginger' styles are the most popular styles from this collection as they're both made of extremely comfortable micro terry cloth that feels so good on your feet.  The 'Willow' is a flip flop which comes in either lavender or red/taupe with a solid foot bed and plaid straps.  The 'Ginger' is a clog which comes in white or black with plaid trim.  They retail at department and specialty stores for between $40-$42.  The Spring Break Collection runs in women's size 6-10 and men's 9-13.

These would make a great Mother's Day gift!  As a special promotion to the FITF readers, Grandoe has offered a 15% off coupon that is good until May 31st, 2012.  Just use promo code "15HUSH" to get this great discount.

You can't go wrong with Grandoe.  I posted about their fantastic gloves last year. They've been in business for over 100 years; first, making leather gloves and then expanding into footwear.  They are a leader in producing innovative and high quality products designed with comfort in mind.  Grandoe operates under many brands, such as:  Hush Puppies, Cire by Grandoe, Stick It Gloves & Accessories and Smartdogs.
