Spills and stains are bound to happen when having fun, but with the stain-fighting power and versatility of Shout®, stains can be treated wherever and whenever they happen, making it easy for families to get the most out of life while still looking their best.

Today, Americans are overscheduled, overly uptight and under their fun quota with nearly 75 percent citing their responsibilities get in the way of being able to have fun. I am so glad I am in that 25%, I found a good balance of work and life in my world. I really hope that you reading this, will assist you to let go and remember life is no fun if you are coupe up working all of the time – having a solid work/life balance makes people happier, healthier and the world a fun place!

Participants will run through the orange color zone, courtesy of Shout®.

Post-race, runners can stop by the Shout® tent where there will be a misting station to lock in their color.

The 360 Color Cam will blast runners with even more color and capture the fun with a camera that will produce a 360 video so they can share their messy moments with their friends.

These special activities will take place in:

My daughter and I participated in a color run type 5K walk/run, I do not believe it was called The Color Run though. It was such a blast to experience, it was to raise funds for our local Library Arts Center events. We walked it, and along the way you could stop to color various things. It was such a blast.

Cosy AND chic: My pick of this season’s snuggly styles

It’s easy to simply throw on a print dress and a pair of sandals in the summer – not forgetting the huge slouchy bag you need if you’re a parent, containing everything from plasters to sunscreen, crayons to baby wipes.

But, in the winter, coordination becomes key as you layer up against the plummeting mercury levels. My children don’t seem to feel the cold at all, they’re still desperate to get out and about – building snowmen in the garden, playing in the park, collecting leaves to make collages. So, determined this winter to enjoy the Great Outdoors no matter what the weather throws at me, I’m going to be investing in my wardrobe of warm woollies with some pieces that are bang on trend.

Here are my favourites so far:


Cuddly coats

It’s not very often that style and practicality meet. But with the re-entrance of faux fur coats on the fashion scene, I’ll be super warm and super stylish. Everyone from Kim Kardashian, whose style has moved from bodycon dresses to more fashion forward pieces of late, to Agyness Deyn, who never sets a fashion foot wrong, have been donning beautiful fur pieces. For a more relaxed version, I absolutely love this style from Browns. At £3,720 it’s way over my price range though – and I’d rather have faux – so I’m going to be searching for a high street copycat.

Hearts and minds

Heart prints have been all over the catwalks for autumn and winter, with Burberry’s heart motif shirt becoming an A-list favourite – worn by the likes of One Direction’s Harry Styles and Spice Girl turned designer Victoria Beckham. And the heart motif knitted dress from La Redoute is a cute take on the trend. I’ll be wearing with opaques and biker boots.

Essential knitwear

You simply can’t have too many pieces of knitwear in the winter. A sweater is perfect for throwing over jeans or layering over a crisp white shirt and wearing with a pencil skirt and heels for work. This sweater from The Kooples would work with just about everything. And, not only is it ideal for this season, it takes in two trends from next season as yellow is a key hue for spring, and it also has a sports luxe feel.

Boots made for playing

While ballet pumps are my summer staple – smart enough for work but comfortable enough for running around with the kids, for winter, flat boots are absolutely essential. They look great and you can wear thermal socks underneath them to stave off frostbite. With equestrian styling featuring heavily on this season’s catwalks, I’m going to be opting for a riding boot, like this Lucky Brand pair, with two-toned brown suede and leather styling and buckle details.

The sleeveless jacket

While it may not be warm enough in the depths of winter, sleeveless jackets have been showcased on the runways of Antonio Berardi, Chloé and Rochas. I love this blue version from N_8 for Emeza. You could easily layer over a white blouse and black trousers for an extra layer of warmth in the office, or make it work with your casual wardrobe by wearing over a rollneck and leather skinnies or jeans.

This season’s pieces just go to show that you can stay warm while channelling some of winter’s biggest trends. That’s not to say though that I won’t simply be donning my onesie and fluffy slippers once I get home from work and the school run.
