My second Converse shoes

My very first Converse shoes is orange. It is too tight on me. It hurts my feet when I wear them. I guess I bought it too small at first.

I got my pay check few days ago. I treat myself a new Converse. I also bought new Reebok socks that does not show with it. It gets really warm while working if I wear crew socks. The no-show socks really cool off my feet a bit.

This time I bought a gray color Converse. It is also a size eight which perfectly fit and so comfortable to wear on my feet. For some odd reason, my shoe size is bigger than my feet. My feet are size 7 and size 71/2 is a little tight. The size eight is perfect and has room for my feet to breath. It is also in clearance for $20. I cannot wait to wear this Converse in the summer time with short and tank tops.

How about you? When was the last time you treat yourself with something that you want or need?

Beautiful Collector’s Gifts for Mother’s Day

One of the most popular categories of Mother’s Day gifts is collectibles. Collectibles are often quite costly, especially on a tight budget. Mothers love to receive a special piece to add to their collections, especially when they are no longer able to spend the extra money. With the wide range of collectible sets that are available today, there are some popular classics that are sure to bring a smile to mother’s face on her special day.

Precious Moments

Precious moments are perhaps one of the most popular mainstream collectibles. Their popularity means that it is actually easier to obtain these beautiful works of art for lower prices. New pieces tend to sell for quite a bit of money, but used pieces tend to sell for much less at flea markets, yard sales, and auction sites. Since these collectibles are most commonly kept in curio cabinets, they can be found in mint condition; even with the original packaging!

Willow Tree

Willow tree collectibles are perfect for life’s little moments. They are a newer collectible, and are not as old as collections like Precious Moments. However, they are quickly becoming one of the more prevalent choices among new mothers. They are affordable, intimate, and whimsical; a Willow Tree collection can match nearly any decor. These simplistic and modern works of art might depict an affectionate embrace, the joys of a new child, self discovery, and much more. They are absolutely perfect for a new family.

Fine China

Fine china is another collection that mothers are very proud and protective of. China can be incredibly expensive and it is generally only used for special occasions. A small collection would do perfectly for Mother’s Day, such as a tea set for two. One could even purchase some delectable tea to share with his or her mother shortly after she opens her tea set! It is advisable to find pieces of china that compliment the items she already has in her cabinet.

Shopping for a beloved mother might seem hard, but it does not have to be. All one must do is take note of all the items that his or her mother collects. Once that’s done, discover which items she does not currently own, and you have an entire shopping list to choose from for her next Mother’s Day gift!
