Celebrate the Holiday Season with OshKosh and $50 Giveaway!

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of OshKosh B’gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

It’s official…it’s the most wonderful time of the y-e-a-r! As much as the holidays bring me a little more stress than usual, our family loves the holiday season. There is kindness in the air and beautiful lights and usually lots of baking in our house. Here in Boston the winter gets pretty cold pretty fast and local meteorologists are predicting a rough winter! Which inevitably means my daughter’s fashion will have to adjust to the colder more blustery days ahead. We feel fully prepared for anything this New England weather has in store thanks to the various styles at OshKosh!

Winter takes on different meaning based on where you live. I’ve lived in Massachusetts my whole life so am unfortunately used to cold and snowy winters where we pile on layers to keep warm. I love the layered comfy look but my 11 year old daughter doesn’t love it as much – unless she is playing in the snow or tubing. She often finds the layered look uncomfortable, hot and feels unable to show her changing fashion and style during the cold and holiday season. Her winter fashion style is colorful and able to move with her whether in Girl Scouts, doing splits on the living room floor or cartwheels at the bus stop! Our favorite tops and bottoms from this year’s OshKosh Kids line are below:

It can be hard to keep up with my daughter’s fashion style – this week her favorite colors are teal and purple however that could change. At any minute! OshKosh provides stylish, age-appropriate and FUN holiday outfits, separates and accessories perfect for any stylish kid at a price parents will love!

From now until December 16th, jump on social media and share your kids’ personal holiday style and flair as part of the #BgoshBelieve campaign! Strike a pose and share your children’s favorite winter OshKosh kids and Baby B’gosh styles based on how your family prepares for winter wherever you are. To help put together the perfect winter outfit use the coupon below to save 25% until December 31, 2016:


Since it’s the season of giving, I’m hosting a giveaway for one $50 OshKosh Kids giftcard! Hooray to the holidays! Entering is simple, follow me on Instagram @MsAlexandracomment on one of my photos and come back here and comment 🙂 It’s official, giving is more fun than receiving!

Happy Shopping!!


Macy’s Presents: Blast from the Past Shopping Party

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Macy’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

It’s been a glorious summer and it is sad to think that the sunniest season of the year will soon come to a close for 2016. Luckily, with Macy’s you can be sure to close out summer in a truly rad way and ensure every member of your family is prepared with all their favorite back to school must-haves!


I appreciate stores and events that are family focused, and year after year Macy’s hosts themed events all over the country engaging that will be sure to engage even the smallest members of your family! This summer they are back with a fun way to celebrate the summer season and autumn upon us – “Get Back, Throw Back” is the theme of a series of events at select Macy’s stores that incorporate makeovers, music, treats, photo opps and prizes! Back to school shopping for many of us (me very much included) can be a drag. Now that my daughter likes to try on at least 5,129 outfits when we shop, it often makes for a looong and exhausting shopping trip. Macy’s wants to change your in-store shopping experience with a shopping party where parents and kids all leave happy! You can literally shop and party…not sure anything beats that! And if you spend more than $35 in the Macy’s mstylelab you’ll receive a 90s-inspired gift!

Boston Girls Night Out at the Sheraton Copley Hotel!

Living so close to Boston means I get to take advantage of all the fun local events happening in and around this historical city! This year I’m feeling unusually prepared and organized about my holiday shopping and have already purchased 3 presents for my daughter and have created lists for close friends and family. And, of course, I’ve put together my wish list which includes the Samsung Galaxy SIII, UGG Airondock Boots, and another Longchamg tote 🙂

As a single working mom my needs often get pushed aside to ensure my little leading lady has all that she could ever need and want. But on November 4th mommy’s going out!!

I’m excited for the upcoming Shop & Talk Pop-Up Warehouse Shopping Party from 11am – 5pm at the Sheraton Copley Hotel. This event is a great opportunity to get together with some girlfriends to shop and have a good time! Indulge in the latest fashions, beauty products, and yummy bites. Spend the day or a couple of hours in the trendy Sheraton sipping cocktails while getting introduced to local Boston businesses in the Back Bay.

Anyone else love swag? Be sure to get your gift bags to keep all your goodies from the day as well as door prizes! LUX (Luxury) Bags are filled with items from sponsors and vendors – $100+ value.

A portion of the gift bag ticket will be donated to The Ellie Fund.
