It's Random Tidbit Tuesday...there's lots to cover...and there's a GIVEAWAY!

 FYI:  My Dancing With The Stars Recap will go live on Thurday!  So will Shay's.

LOFT decided to extend part of their sale. 
It is now 50% off of selected merchandise today with code SPRING50! 
  Click HERE to shop.

GAP is 25% off of your purchase online only with the code GAP25 (denim  not included, boo!).


 Random Tidbit #1:
I pinned this picture of Cindy Crawford* awhile back  and I knew that I immediately needed to add a neutral colored  blazer to my closet. 
(*Okay....so this isn't Cindy Crawford.  Just a gorgeous blogger that totally looks like Cindy Crawford.  You can find her blog HERE.)
 I love how it's casual and chic at the same time, and I absolutely adore how it is styled with the dark tank, the dark denim jeans, and the gold jewelry.
I've been on the lookout for a blazer like this for awhile, and I just haven't found one that I love...

UNTIL NOW!
 I found THIS blazer at Nordstrom (the picture on the right), and I think it's PERFECT!
(I highlighted this same blazer last week in a different color but didn't see there was a neutral color option until today.)
Click HERE to see the OATMEAL blazer for yourself.  Not a bad price either!
And I thought it was interesting how they had it styled very similarly to the inspiration picture!
 I love the feminine lines of the blazer and how it is rounded off at the bottom.
I think both of those 2 features make the blazer super flattering!
And ladies, we all know that "super flattering" is SUPER important!
THIS will be mine!  WooHoo!

Random Tidbit #2:
I got another reader e-mail this weekend, and I thought I would highlight it!

Hi Sheaffer!
I've been looking around for a new pair of wedges, and I haven't found any that I love.  I know that you've put a lot of wedges on the blog, but they are all kind of "plain".  I don't mean that in a bad way, but I'm kind of wanting a wedge with an edge, with some wow factor. I already have a brown pair and a black pair and I'm just looking for something different. Can you help?
Love the blog! 
Kallie

Hi Kallie!  Thanks for the question!  I'm not sure if you are wanting more colorful (I know all of the wedges I've featured have been like brown or black), or just more hip.  So, I've pulled several choices together for you!  Some are a cool shape, some have cool embellishments (like studs), some have cool designs on the wedge, and some are just bright colors.
I hope one of these is edgy enough for you!

 THIS pair is just a regular color, but the snake skin makes it edgy!  They are 50% off!
(Sadly, there are only a handful of sizes left.)

THIS pair isn't edgy (they actually look a bit demure), but they are unique.

Check out THESE for a choice in neon pink or neon yellow (with a gold strap).
Neon colors are HUGE this spring
And I know THIS pair isn't a wedge.  But they are a flat version of the above, and they are great!
They come in 10 different color combinations!

If it's bright colors that you are looking for, one of these would do the trick!  I am really loving the coral option, and I love the stripes on the heel.  Click on the pic!
 And THESE are neutral, but they are SUPER edgy!  LOVE the grommets (I think that's what they are called), the pattern on the wedge, and the ankle strap!  Click on the pic!
And one last option!  Colorful, but not too crazy!  
How great would THESE look with just about any color skinny jean or short?
Click on the pic!

Random Tidbit #3:
 I would like to announce my newest sponsor!
Betsey with Rodan + Fields.
What is Rodan + Fields?
It's a company run by dermatologists (the same dermatologists that came up with Proctiv!)
I could share research with you; but instead, I'm just going to show you some AMAZING Before and After pictures!  Who doesn't LOVE a good before and after pic?  Check out this short video!


If you would like to check out the full range of products,
check out Betsey's Rodan + Fields page HERE.

And Betsey is giving away a sunless tanner to one of my readers!  Awesome!

Check out these results:
My white and pasty legs NEED this pronto!!!!!  I am kind of embarrassed to even be wearing my cropped jeans...so there is not way I'd slip on a pair of shorts right now!

How do you enter?  Simple!
Just  like Betsey's facebook page HERE and leave me a comment saying you liked it.
That's it! 
1 person will win a sunless tanner...and 5 people will win a little sample pack of a "mini facial".
Betsey already sent me one of these, and it is AMAZING.
My face has NEVER felt so soft.

And remember, you can now find a Rodan+Fields button on my sidebar anytime you want to check out their products.

Random Tidbit #4:
I thought I would include a couple of my Pinterest inspired outfits today that I didn't feel were worthy of their own post.   They are definitely "eh" outfits.

 Hey, you can't win them all. 

Remember to like the Rodan+Fields facebook page HERE and then leave a comment on this post saying you did so. The contest will end next Tuesday and the winner will be announced on Wednesday!

 And don't forget to enter the contest for the $50 credit to Charles Emerson jewelry HERE!
It ends this Wednesday night at 8:00, and I will announce the winner on Thursday morning.

p.s.  I wanted to say "Hi Elizabeth!"
Elizabeth is a sweet reader I met in the parking lot at Stonebriar mall yesterday.  She was super cute and it was so nice of her to stop and say"hi!"


Pin It!

  3. Hey Sheaffer! I have that exact outfit pinned myself- in fact I pinned it more than once (I seem to have a tendency to do that- then I know it's REALLY speaking to me!) I too decided that I needed a neutral blazer but I ended up going with winter-white seeing as it's autumn here. Anyhoo, I also assumed it was Cindy Crawford but when I clicked on the picture and went to the source it turns out it is a Cindy Crawford lookalike! Can you imagine being that lucky!!!

  32. Love the oatmeal blazer! I think I'm going to order it right now before I talk myself out of it. I'm a petite, 5'2, 105 lbs, so the chances are the xs will still be too big, but can't hurt to try, right?

    I know you love a good deal, so here's one I thought you'd want to know about: www.ebates.com

    You sign up (for free) and get cash back at your favorite stores (plus a $10 target gift card just for signing up!) The cash back is 6% for JCrew, 2% for LOFT, 2.5% for GAP, 5% for Nordstrom, etc. It is seriously like free money. I'm not at all affiliated with ebates, just something I found out about that has been awesome. They can put the money right into your pay pal account. Good stuff!

    Looking forward to your DWTS post this week :)
