3 things you need

After not being here a week, I wish I could tell you I was on vacation.
Just the end of the semester scramble, stress {more on this later} and lack of motivation coupled with general exhaustion - so yeah, sleep won whenever I had the choice between sleeping or blogging. And there may have been a couple hangovers in there too...

Anyway, I'm keeping it simple today.
You never want to overdo it your first day back, yanno?!
Here are three things you need right now...

1. $50 to buy new shoes {who doesn't?!}

There is a new, women's, online shoe boutique coming May 1:

The Scarpetta Shoe Boutique

And they are giving you the chance to earn up to $50 to spend when they launch.
All you have to do is "like" their Facebook page and leave your name and email {click on "share the deal" to see the entry form}!

When the boutique launches in May, they will automatically email you a gift card to spend!
 The more people that sign up, the higher the gift card amount {up to $50}. For example, if 100 people sign up, everyone will get a $10 gift card. And you're not obligated to refer people to sign up.!
While you're on their page, check out the photos of  the adorable, designer shoes they will be carrying. 

2. Keysocks

Have you heard of these?
Well, if not, they are aaaaahmazing and you need a pair - or seven.
Shelby, the owner of the Cincinnati-based company, is a genius {which means I can forgive her for being a Bengals fan ;)}!
Keysocks are knee-high socks you can wear with flats {obviously under a pair of pants unless you're a private school girl} and no one knows you're wearing socks.
Take a gander:

My feet are always cold and I usually avoid flats in the winter and early spring.
Now, I don't have to!
And you know how if you haven't worn flats for a while, you have to recondition your feet to wearing them again, which usually involves blisters?
 Wearing Keysocks prevents blisters! Whoop, whoop!
Happy feet, happy Holly - or however that saying goes...
Now, go get yourself a pair of Keysocks {only $9.95!}!

3. Honest Tea

{1. Just Green Tea, 2. Pomegranate Blue Ade, 3. Assam Black Tea, 4. (not too) Sweet Tea, 5. Peach White Tea, and 6. Honey Green Tea}

Recently, I had the opportunity to try Honest Tea and Honest Ade.
And to be honest, I enjoy some sweet sweet tea.
So I was a little skeptical when I saw the "just a tad sweet" line on the label.
But it was actually good, and yeah, just a tad sweet {but I didn't doubt it considering the company name, it doesn't seem like the false advertising type}.
And for all you clean eaters - this stuff is organic!   

My favorites were: Pomegranate Blue Ade, (not too) Sweet Tea and the Peach White Tea.
Sometimes I get tired of drinking water and need something with some flavor, but don't want to guzzle a butt load of sugar, so Honest Tea and Honest Ade are a perfect go-to beverage.
The other day at work I tried the Orange Mango Ade and it was delish!
Check out all the flavors {there is even some for kiddos!} and the next time you're grocery shopping or pass a vending machine, give Honest Tea or Honest Ade a try.
You won't be sorry {and I really can't lie about this!} :)    

I'm giving away ad space over on Lauren's blog, Sincerely, Lo!

Good luck!

I love the honest tea... I like that it's not too sweet. I hate my teeth feeling like they're coated in sugar after a super sweet drink!
