Apr 21, 2014 | Fashion, Score!
Just like everyone these days, my life is jam-packed
. From morning to night, I’m going to the gym, taking my son to school, running errands, scouting locations, meeting my business partner, chatting with the girls over tea, picking up my son, and going to after-school activities (and then maybe out to dinner if I’m lucky!). Basically, my feet are two busy dogs
and I usually hit my 10,000 steps daily with little effort needed. With the new feather-light Reebok Skyscapes
, I can go from errands to car to walking to running around – all while supported, comfy, and stylish.
The lace-to-toe molded silhouette and unique design provide amazing comfort
(seriously, you have to try these to believe it!!). This shoe is crafted borrowing the materials and soft molding process used to create lingerie, which provides all-around comfort and creates a shoe so lightweight that it weighs only 5.0 ounces. (The soft foam material in the upper feels just like my favorite molded bra – which feels almost like I’m wearing nothing on my feet at all.) I love that the shoe isn’t covered with all sorts of stitching and rubber bits and things that catch and weigh me down: the design is sleek and streamlined and looks like a hybrid between an athletic shoe and a casual sneaker
. Inside the footbed the Skyscape features Skyspring technology
, which is a unique design architecture designed to help support the foot and provide all day comfort for my on-the-go lifestyle. It’s just like walking on clouds.
(“So lightweight and comfortable, you’ll forget you have them on”
is their tagline.)
Perfect for keeping up with the dog: Pudding may have super-short legs, but she can run!
Plus whilst wearing them I love to coordinate them to my outfit
– and they don’t look as if I just walked out of a spinning class or something. (They’re now my choice of footwear when picking up my son at school for the long walk from the car to his classroom, standing around the playground, and then back to the car.) They come in some fun and fashion-forward colors
(mine are Pink Fusion!) and cost under $70 for a pair. Reebok Skyscapes are available for online purchase
, or at select Kohl’s, Reebok FitHub, or Outlet locations for in-store purchase
You can win a YourReebok Custom Card and create your own pair of Reebok Skyscape shoes!

DIY kit company Darby Smart recently sprung onto the scene and is making waves with their fashion-forward packages of fun DIY projects you can make at home. Instead of a monthly subscription to their kits (which many other companies are using as a business model as of late), you can buy a Darby Smart kit any time, and for anyone! Inspired by Pinterest projects and catering to the community, the kits provide the materials and supplies to make chic and polished crafts for accessories, jewelry, and home decor. And at Darby Smart, anyone can become a kit designer! Designed by amazingly creative designers, bloggers, and crafters, the submitted projects are voted on by the Darby Smart community and then the most popular are turned into kits for sale.
I was recently sent the You-Nique Monogram Tote Kit to play with and create my own DIY stenciled tote. I decided to create a tote with a badge, with my personal mantra “DREAM IT / MAKE IT / DO IT” emblazoned on the front. Using the stencils and the glitter pen provided, I added some paints and glitter from my collection to create something with a throwback 80’s feel. And that’s the piece I created!
I had a lot of fun with the kit, which was easy to use, and I was impressed with how long the glitter pen held up and how much ink was in it. Plus – and here’s the BIG PLUS, folks – the tote is not the cheap kind of canvas tote you’d find for $5.99 at the craft store…it’s actually a heavy-duty canvas piece from Baggu, with inner snap, pocket, and adjustable shoulder strap. An extremely good value for the price of the entire kit.
And Darby Smart is also graciously offering 2 You-Nique Monogram Tote kits to give away to my readers!
Edit 9/1/13: Giveaway is now closed and winners are announced. Thanks!
