I’ve been posting a lot this week. I’ve been busy. Admittedly I’ve taken things slowly with this blog the first quarter of 2013. In January I was consumed with being a finalist/winner with the Marilyn Denis show’s Search for Real Canadian Women. February was about taking it easy. March was about #WMCFW and working with Victoria Revay at QMI agency and since that job things have been busy and I’m not complaining. I’ve been contacted by many companies and been invited to several PR events which have been both flattering and exciting.
When Salsa Jeans initially approached me I was hesitant. I had never heard of their company. After some on-line research I learned it’s based in Portugal and ships to Canada and it’s very popular in Europe. As fun (and small) as my blog is I take it seriously. If I recommend something it’s because I like it not because I got a freebie. I didn’t want to enter into any contest just because I received a free pair of jeans and a possible grand prize (even if the top prize is to Dubai – I’ll be bugging you on Friday) if I didn’t believe in the product. I asked my UK blogger friends and Beth from Style Guile recommends them to her clients because of the rise selections, and Helen from The Flaky Fashionista says her neighbour just raves about her Salsa Jeans and Helen has added them to her wish list because she has fallen for them as well.
These women helped to convince me that I should enter the challenge. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you know I prefer a mid to high rise because I’ve had four children, lucky for us all because Salsa offers everything from low to high. Lots of people automatically think that they are going to be ugly “MOM” jeans. Well get a load of these Morpho Push-In Jeans in Atlantic Blue. Their in-seams range from 30 to 34 inches (tall girl love) and pocket placement is lowered to accommodate the high rise for a nice bum. Plus it literally Pushes everything In and no puckering. The Morpho line offers six different fits and includes maternity jeans. The problem now? I want more!
Yup I even gave you a behind shot. I don’t know how long this is staying up (I wish I could blame it on the alcohol).
I’m also linking up with The Pleated Poppy for more blogger inspiration.
