Tide is reinventing the way you do laundry! If you are looking for a way to simplify your laundry (and let's face it, who isn't?) Tide may have just the answer for you. They've got a detergent plus stain remover plus brightener all in one little pac. And, one pac equals one load... what could be easier than that?
We provided bloggers with Tide Pods and asked them to let us know how laundry day went at their homes. Click on the post links below to read what they thought. Tide Pods work in all machine types and dissolve quickly in hot & cold water. Like any household detergent, keep away from children.
The Pop In. Stand Out. Sweepstakes runs from 10/03/13 through 11/03/13 and is only open to individuals who, at the time of entry deadline, are legal residents of the United States and are 18 years or older. Read the official rules here. Winners will be randomly selected from all eligible entries. Good luck!
I've always viewed product demos with a mixture of skepticism and awe. There's no doubt that they're compelling, but I've been let down too many times by "miracle" products to fully trust in anything these days. So when I got an opportunity to review Tide Pods, I decided to put it to the test and see what it could really do. And since I'm a former lab geek, let's approach this old-school experiment style :)...more
A lot of you probably don't know this, but I'm a fashion school graduate. Yeppp, I've got me a shiny ol' bachelors degree in fine arts for fashion design and merchandising. See look? I even had to draw and stuff. Ask me how many years I've used said degree.Answer: Zero. Goose egg. Nada....more
So I had way too much fun with back-to-school shopping for Coco.Girl clothing? So. Fun.Like, I'm not even looking forward to shopping for Chaucer one day. Sorry, but the stuff that I like he won't even touch with a ten foot pole. I try to bring out the hipster in him. Unfortunately, he's only interested in wearing something with a super-hero emblem on it.And that's kind of hipster of him, right?...more
You all know I am the queen of wash and wear fashion. I have an entire category on this blog devoted to Real Life Style because I have no desire to be an aspirational arbiter of fashion. I love pretty clothes! But I also know myself really well, and the truth is if I buy something with a Dry Clean Only tag on it, chances are I'm skipping it in favor of something I can wash and wear...more
You know what I love? Clothes. (And shoes ... and accessories ...) You know what I do not love? DOING LAUNDRY! Actually, full confession: I loathe most household tasks, and am always beyond thrilled when I come across something makes a task easier in some way....more
Keeping my clothes clean and in like new condition is very important to me. As women, we spend alot of money on clothes and nothing drives us more crazy than when we can’t get a spot out of our favorite pieces. When I shop, I try to shop for clothes that are machine washable. I definitely don’t want to spend a lot of money on dry cleaning, which is why I am always on the hunt for detergents that can offer a bevy of cleaning abilities....more
You may have noticed that lots of my summer wardrobe consisted of brights and whites. It's been one of my absolute favorite looks as of late and I'm thinking of all sorts of ways to incorporate my fave neon pieces with darker pieces that can transition me to winter. Problem with bright clothing is the concern about fading. The looks I love won't look nearly as nice if my brights slowly turn into pastels. ...more
After reaching a plateau in my weight-loss maintenance, I decided it was time to shake things up a bit--literally. I've joined a yoga studio and now go twice a week, do sprint and rest intervals on the treadmill at least twice a week, and then continue with my barre method routines every other day. I'm trying to break to 131-pound mark and see if I can get back to my high school weight of 128. It's not far off, but my body is refusing to budge....more
The September issue of Vogue has arrived and it’s just getting me even more excited for Spring ‘14 Fashion Week that’s right around the corner. This is always one of the most fun times of the year because it means seeing new trends and getting more designer inspiration for upcoming copycat posts! Woo! I begin a pinning frenzy on Pinterest of things that I can’t wait to recreate after they come down the runway....more
Laundry. Chances are if you're anything like me then you're probably doing it wrong. At least that's what I discovered after reading this handy primer called, oh yes, Laundry: you're doing it wrong. The author washes laundry for a living and so is an expert in all thing whites, brights and too-tights (from too hot drying - #7 on the list of things you're doing wrong)....more
