Shopping for a (Good) Winter Coat

I've been in Philly for years and I still can't get over how cold it gets in the winter. N.E. winters are no joke. I'm trying to find a coat that will keep me really warm this winter. So here's what I've found so far:

The Belted Wool Coat from Express $108.00. I like the style, but I also like the high collar, that would really keep me warm on windy days. The downside is that it comes in Ivory. I could see my 3-year-old getting sticky candy cane hands on this while we're out.


This is the Long Velvet Tie Polyfill from XOXO for $98.00. I love everything about this coat, I just wish there were more color choices, it only comes in black.


This Plaid Drop Waist from Baby Phat is cute, but I don't think it would keep me warm. I would buy this if I lived some where down south, like Georgia. Winters weren't too bad when I was there. The Price for this coat: $179.00.

This coat I simply loved. This is the Logo Belted Jacket from The House of Dereon. It costs $238.00. The color is Chocolate, it has a good length, and it has a hood. The only thing I'm worried about is if the material is thick enough or warm enough. I would need to see it in a store.

  1. These coats are hot. I understand about the sticky candy cane hands. Trying to keep up with my boys I'm better off with a tripple fat and some sneakers.

  3. Anna, thanks for the comment about the layout.

    I see you both like the Ivory coat from Express. I have to admit that's my fav.

    Promomama, when my kids get older I think I might go crazy shopping for myself. I'll buy everything I dared not get when they were little :)

Blurred Lines

Do you know what it's like to lay in someone's arms and feel completely empty? To have their body wrapped around yours, naked, skin touching, breathe on your neck, arms holding you so tight it feels as if they were meant to never let you go. I lose myself in the forehead kisses and the brushing of my hair behind my ears. In the soft whispers and the morning smiles. I lose myself most of the time. But sometimes, I just lay there wrapped in his naked body wondering if he holds everyone like this. Wondering why I keep coming back. Knowing, that I'll come back again.  *Photo by cottonbro from Pexels

Nine Easy to use Apps for Small Cash Advances

Photo by Yan Krukov   Cash Advance apps offer people the ability to borrow small amounts of money in the form of cash advances. Some may have additional features, such as credit-building, saving and budgeting tools, and bank accounts. Most require a monthly membership fee and/or service fees that will be deducted from your account at the same time as your advance repayment. You will need to have a bank account with direct deposit from your employer in order to use these apps. Here is a list of nine, no hassle, Cash Advance apps you can use to get from pay check to pay check. Before I list them, I want to advise against using these apps unless it is an emergency. These should only be used every once in a while. If you are having problems getting from paycheck to paycheck, there is likely a bigger issue at hand. I recommend going over your income and expenses and watching your spending, or getting a second job. Click here for the budgeting app that I use and how it

Trust

Years ago, before I was ever married, I remember asking a friend about trust. She was already married and had been with her husband for a few years. I asked her, "How do you know you can trust him? How do you have faith in him to do the right thing? Don't you ever worry he'll cheat on you?" She told me that you don't put your faith in your husband. You have faith in God. If your husband is doing something wrong, you trust in God to make it right. That conversation has always stuck with me. The bible says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths." (NKV Proverbs 3:5-6). I took her words, my Bible, and six weeks of marital counseling with our pastor into my marriage. Still, after only three months, my husband was having an affair. I felt sick. I felt stupid. I felt betrayed. I was angry, and everything they told me went null and void. When y
