Ski Wear Through the Ages

Fashion and Snow. Not the most conventional of partnerships to say the least. In fact if you tried trekking through the alpine tundra in any of the catwalk outfits nowadays you would be in for a rough time.

But I’m being silly. The fact is that modern ski apparel is actually quite fashionable! From what started as an essential piece of uniform to simply keep you warm and dry, skiers and snowboarders heading up the peak this year will have a seemingly unending choice of jackets, boots, coats, hats etc.

In fact it’s a lucrative business! The Ski Industry rose by 1% last winter despite the financial climate and is set for another rise this year.

Below you can see the transformation skiwear has gone through over the past decades including some of the main advancements in the industry that coincided with them. So whether you’re planning a trip abroad or just to your local dry ski slope, take a few tips from history and look the part!

New Mattel WWE Brawlin’ Buddies and Rumblers Rampage Transforming Tour Bus #holidaygift

gift guide sponsorsDo you have a WWE fan in your house? I do. The biggest fan here is actually my daughter, at age 11 she is in love with WWE and it’s great that the Brawlin’ Buddies are something she enjoys smashing around with her brothers. It’s something that allows my boys to use their rough and tumble side with while sharing a common interest with sissy.

WWE Action Rumblers Rampage

Now not only can my kids play around with their Brawlin’ Buddies but Mattel has released the WWE Rumblers Rampage Transforming Tour Bus which allows more pretend play for the children. My sons like the WWE Rumblers Rampage Transforming tour bus because it seems this year is their year to enjoy pretend play. It’s so much fun, as a parent, to watch your children engage in using their imaginations and team work to play together with such products as this one.

WWE Tour Bus

Why do I love these two new products from Mattel for young WWE fans?

  • Engages children to play together, rather than on electronics.
  • Encourages rough and tumble play with safe toys.
  • Allows a child to use their imagination by pretending to their favorite WWE character.
  • Encourages a love for something entertaining.

Everyone grows up some day, right? These type of toys allow our children to stay young just a bit longer, even the adult WWE fan in the household will enjoy playing along with either product and I bet they will have a blast interacting with their children. These two products are a great way to encourage playing together, taking turns, playing safely and engaging in interactive family time!

You can purchase each product on Amazon.com, ShopMattel.com and other nationwide retailers that sell similar products.

Picture a Day – Wearing Earrings

The first hole I had pierced in my ears was around age six. That hole become two more added later in life, one got ripped out and hurt badly so that one is no longer “active” and there is a third hole on one ear that was done wrong so I don’t use that one either. I basically have two spots on both ears I can wear earrings — as shown below. The issue is that no matter the type of earring I try to wear, my ears turn bright red and get all infected in the earring piercing hole…. I don’t know why. BUT I do know I wish I could wear earrings more often…

The Weather is not so Frightful

I was thinking about the weather when the Winter time song came into mind, “the weather is oh so frightful but the fire inside is delightful. Since we no place to go … let it snow, let it snow, let it snow” then I realized ummm it’s like close to Summer weather outside.

The weather has been so amazing and awesome, it’s like 80 degrees and I have had the sprinkler on for the kids multiple times now. It’s a beautiful day today as well, slight breeze with warm sunshine shining down upon us.

I think I will enjoy the great outdoors and hope for no tick sightings. Had a huge tick sighting the other day, ticks freak me out!

Tis the season for sunshine, bugs and the pond. The pond has come to life .. I am signing off to go catch some frogs, salamanders and maybe even a tadpole or turtle for the kids to check out today before returning them back to the pond.

Happy Sunday everyone!
