I am inspired by Ann Taylor and recently purchased my first EVER animal print item of clothing! I still can't believe that I did it. But I did! I bought this Michael Kors Pencil Skirt. Since the colors are a mix of black, white, and gray (colors I would wear anyway) - I thought that I would just GO FOR IT!
Details: The Ann Taylor black and white leopard print pencil skirt $88. My Michael Kors Pencil Skirt $130 - on sale for $33! SCORE! Not a very expensive fashion risk at all!
What are your thoughts on animal prints? Personally, I think that you either LOVE animal prints or that you HATE them. I am still not sure - but at least I will TRY them! Thank you Ann Taylor for almost daring me to try!
Speaking of FASHION... Fashion Week San Diego is coming up soon! I am very excited to attend and have been granted the privilege of a press pass to the event! Better brush up on fashion! Stay tuned for more on that!

This post brought to you by Famous Footwear. All opinions are 100% mine.
If you are visiting my blog and have read my prior posts then you know that I am all about getting the biggest bang for my buck! I reluctantly admit that I have neglected my poor blog... But I am sure that you understand and know the drill: 1) I'm a Mommy, 2) I'm a Wife, 3) I work 40 hours a week away from home, 4) Life just gets BUSY. Soon, if not already, many parents will be swimming in BUSY with all kinds of back to school shopping! Our son is a toddler yet so I don't have the stress of the hustle & bustle of BTS shopping. Not yet at least. But I KNOW what an expense that it can be! Kids clothes & shoes can get really expensive if you are not careful! Shoes alone for kids (which are QUICKLY outgrown) can put a dent into any budget.
Couponing is an awesome way to save. You can use coupons for groceries, restaurants, the car wash, even for entertainment events! But for SHOES?! YES! Even for SHOES! This may just be the FIRST time I've printed a coupon for shoes! I recommend that you HURRY and print this one out too! You can get 15% - 20% OFF plus BOGO (Buy one, get one 1/2 off).

I've been eating salads daily to get more produce into my diet. I skip the fatty favorites that I LOVE: Ranch Dressing, crumbled bacon, croutons...! For me, taste is a BIG deal. I have discovered a tasty way to enjoy my greens with products that I already have at home. With this super easy recipe. A little bit of this tasty mix goes a long way!
It's super simple: Ponzu Sauce + EVOO! Visit the Kikkoman website for more recipe ideas and for nutritional information. Don't forget to grab your $1 off coupon while you are there!
