Get Pants That Fit + Help Grace Centers of Hope at Clothing Cove Pant Clinic March 27-28 {Milford}

The Clothing Cove - Milford, MichiganI was compensated for this post with a Clothing Cove gift card. All opinions expressed are my own — especially when I say this store rocks. Because it does!

Ladies…I can’t be alone. I have been every size from 6 up to 14 in the past 10 years and have worn every style of pants possible, and I still don’t have a single pair of pants that fit correctly. Being 8 months postpartum hasn’t helped at all. Suffice to say, this event sounds like something I need to attend!

Pant Clinic at Clothing Cove for Grace Centers of Hope

The Clothing Cove, in charming downtown Milford, Michigan, is hosting a pant clinic this weekend, March 27-28 to put a positive spin on the elusive search for a great fitting pair of pants. For every customer who tries on a perfect fit pant, $2 will be donated to Pontiac-based Grace Centers of Hope to fight against homelessness and human trafficking.

“We have helped thousands of women across the nation in their search for great fitting pants,” said Clothing Cove owner Genise Horsley. “This is just a fun way to find the perfect complement to the body God gave you.”

Grace Centers Of Hope LogoIf you aren’t familiar, Grace Centers of Hope is an amazing rehabilitation center that has been helping men and women in Pontiac since 1942. They shelter anywhere from 150-200 people a night and serve about 100,000 meals a year. Grace Centers also partners with the non-profit All Worthy of Love to fight against human trafficking in Detroit. Fantastic cause, amiright?

For the Clothing Cove pant clinic, sales associates will be ready to help fit the skinny, straight, curvy and every customer in between with a wide selection of missy pants. The collection includes sizes 0 to 24W and features brands selected for their slimming nature, comfort, and durability. Such notable names as Renuar, Krazy Larry, Tribal, Raffinalla, and SlimSation will be shown. [Continue reading…]

Wall Decal Fun with Katie’s Vinyl Decor {+ Giveaway for $30 Credit! Ends 4/3}

I received my own wall decals exchange for my post. All opinions expressed are my own.

One of my favorite parts of blogging is learning about the amazing businesses out there…and meeting new people! I don’t want to brag, but I think I have the greatest readers ever ;) I was thrilled when a local gal named Katie reached out to me, and I’m excited to share about her great business today — Katie’s Vinyl Decor, which is based in Roseville, Michigan.

What started out as a hobby last spring has become a real business for Katie and her husband, Carl.  A piece of my heart smiles because Carl is a financial analyst and she is an accountant. {My husband is a CPA and I am truly impressed that both Katie and Carl have the creative side of their brain since I often tease my husband about missing that gene!}

How cute are they?

As Katie told me, “We work with numbers all day and then during the evenings and weekends we get to do the fun creative work.” Love it! Somehow they also raise 3 boys, too. I’m impressed!

Katie’s Vinyl Decor offers wall decals, car decals, etched bakeware and custom clothing. I had a hard time choosing what I wanted to order — there were so many fun things. I love how decals can replace traditional artwork, which can get very expensive. These are a great alternative for filling up some wall space in a beautiful, personalized way. Here are a few of my favorite designs they have, but they have more than 100+ items available:

The decals are SO simple to install, too. Believe me, if I can do it while taking photos and caring for 3 needy little kids, you can too!

The process was super simple. Let me just say this is one more reason why a library card is the best card in your wallet! I used mine to get the decal to adhere to the wall. I should also note that while the backing is sticky, it’s super easy to move around until you get it in the perfect spot. I loved that I could see what it would look like before I made it stick for good.

Ta-Da! The final product. I love the look of it!
