Qupid Bootie and Boot Review

Disclosure: I received a sample (as described below) to conduct my review for this blog post.  All opinions stated in this post are truthful and mine alone.  Receiving a sample(s) of this product in no way influenced my opinion of these products. 

Anyone who knows me personally can tell you I have a shoe addiction.  I must own over 100 pairs of shoes, sandals, and boots combined.  That being said I don’t like to spend a lot of money on my shoes because styles come and go.  That is why I love fresh and cutting edge designs by Qupid.  Their designs are well within any budge range and their shoes and boots are well made to last you year after year.

Being a Qupid brand lover previously and owning several of their styles I cannot tell you how excited I was to work with them on this review.

The kind folks at Qupid sent me two amazing styles from their recent fall collection. The “Nero-11X Black Embroidered Bootie” which sells for $46.00 and the “Zinc-01 Taupe Knee High Back Lace“ over the knee boot that sells for $49.00.

Each of these amazing styles is the hottest thing in boots today. Similar styles to the “Nero-11X “ bootie with it’s embroidered floral design and “Zinc-01“ over the knee boot were seen walking the runways at New York fashion week time after time this year.

Each style can be worn with jeans, dress pants, skirts, or dresses they are so versatile.  I have paired each boot with a pair of black leggings and a top for you to see how easy they go with any fashion combination you may want to wear.

The Nero-11X is of faux man-made suede material with a 2.25 inch stacked heel. I am in love with this bootie. It has a very comfortable fit and I manage to stay in it all day long without having any discomfort.  The Nero-11X comes in black and taupe in sizes 5 to 10.


The Zinc-01 is an over the knee style boot. It is constructed of faux man-made suede material with a 3.50 inch heel.  I like the heal height of this boot as it’s not difficult to walk in even for someone my age.  The fabric is so comfortable; it feels like you have cozy slippers on your entire leg.  Easy to get on and off this boot has a 9” zipper on the side of the boot.  The Zinc-01 comes in a variety of color choices in sizes 5 to 10. It even comes in a beautiful embroidered version of this same boot.

So be sure to checkout all the wonderful shoes and boots from Qupid at www.qupid.com and use the code SHOELOVER at the checkout for a 15% discount.

LL Bean – the gift that keeps giving!



I had no clue about this so I want to thank Michelle for allowing me to use her photo and for providing this info for me to share.

Apparently LL Bean has a 100% no-time-limit guarantee on any of their products.  So Michelle purchased her first pair of LL Bean slippers a few years ago and exchanges them for a “free” new pair each year.

Talk about the gift that keeps giving.  Make sure you tell the recipient about this just by exchanging their item at a LL Bean store or on line.

I’m sure if there is no physical store in the area you can ship them back to LL Bean (at your cost) and get a new pair.

This 100% satisfaction no-time-limit guarantee is listed on their website.




My 10 Favorite Tried and True Nail Products – you will love them too!

Rosey’s top 10 favorite nail products!

You don’t have to be a licensed professional to purchase and or use these products.  Over the years I have tried hundreds of products and in my professional opinion these are the best for me and my clients.  Today many companies give access to the public to purchase their products through their web stores even if you are not a licensed professional.

You may have your favorites but don’t get caught up in the hype of many that mass promote their products.  Some lesser known companies like Cuccio make some of the best nail products on the market today.


  1. Cuccio Forte Nail Strengthener – My absolute all time favorite product – Cuccio Forte Nail Strengthener!  I love love love this product and cannot say enough great things about it.  You can read what some of my customers and clients say about this “miracle in a bottle” product here.  This product will improve the health of your nails in as little as 2 weeks time.  However I tell my customers and clients it can take up to 6 months for a full nail growth (from the cuticle to the free edge) so if you don’t see an immediate improvement you will just give it some time. You will be amazed at how your nails will get healthier and stronger using this product.  You can buy this product direct from me here.

Aureus Men’s Shoe Review and Giveaway!

This contest has ended!

I had the pleasure of receiving for review a pair of Aureus Men’s Shoes which I gifted to my son.  Aureus is a men’s shoe company with a unique sole construction called AM-TECH Sole Technology which gives the consumer the greatest possible comfort with the least amount of sole separation. They only use 100% genuine top grade leather for their shoe uppers and inner linings. All of their designs are created in-house and they aim to always bring new and original fashion to their customers.  They only use eco-friendly materials on all their shoes which I thought was amazing.  This company cares about the environment.  See below all the details about their eco-friendly materials.

My son loved the sharp style and comfort of this shoe.  He’s one of these people that hates (and I mean hates) restrictive shoes that hurt your feet. Not the Aureus Patron (which is the style we receive.) I was very impressed with the construction of this shoe as well.  It is meticulously made and I am certain my son will have them for many years of enjoyment.

As you can see by the photo below they are stylish with comfort.  The Patron comes in four colors: Silver (below), Dark Brown, Navy Blue and Wheat (tan) in men’s sizes ranging from 6.5 to size 13. The Patron features – 100% Genuine Nubuck Leather Upper, Polyurethane (PU) Insole Cushion, AM-TECH® Sole Technology, Direct Injected Sole Construction, Elastic Shoelaces, Metal Eyelets, Eco-Friendly Materials and Anti-Slip Sole Properties.


The Patron is only one of many styles of men’s comfort shoes being featured on the Aureus website at https://www.aureus-usa.com/

Free ground shipping is included with each order. They come beautifully packaged in a carry bag and a brush is included with each shoe to keep your genuine suede leather in tip top shape.

About the company:

The Aureus brand was founded in the United States in 1977 as a provider of quality golf apparel. Throughout the 1980’s Aureus grew in name among industry professionals and was worn both on and off the golf course by several all-time great professional golfers of the era, including PGA-major winners Larry Mize, Scott Timpson, John Mahaffey, and the legendary Raymond Floyd. Outside of making quality apparel, Aureus worked closely with PGA professionals in promoting and teaching the game of golf. In 1990, the company was named the top-selling golf apparel maker in the United States by Golf Pro Merchandiser. Throughout the 1990’s and 2000’s Aureus continued to sell quality golf clothing to retailers all across the United States and Canada. In 2014, Aureus expanded to include casual and lifestyle footwear, staying true to the quality that is a part of Aureus’ DNA. Their technology, quality, and comfort are what separate Aureus footwear from the rest of the pack. The backbone of what they do is in our technology. 

Aureus footwear only uses environmentally friendly materials in its construction. Most of the raw materials used in the making of our products are 100% sustainable and biodegradable. Polyurethane (PU) and Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) are organically composed compounds, and as outsole materials, they are safer than all other commercially-used materials such as rubber and PVC. The water-based adhesive used in our footwear contains zero VOC’s, meaning they do not evaporate under certain climate conditions, thus having no health risks or unpleasant scents.

LOCAL SPOTLIGHT: Women Owned Businesses – Cindy Goldberg, LuLaRoe!

Contest has ended!

Have you heard everyone talking about those buttery soft leggings yet?  Or by chance had an opportunity to touch them and immediately need a pair for yourself?  

If not, let me introduce you to LuLaRoe – a unique clothing line designed to fit women of all ages, sizes, and shapes (also kids!)  All of our prints, fabrics, and designs are exclusive to Lularoe and cannot be found elsewhere.  

The patterns range from bold, bright colors to soft muted prints to solids (hello, basic black!), meaning there is a style to fit everyone’s differing personalities and moods.  The collection not only includes leggings, but also a range of tops, skirts, dresses, kimonos, and cardigans.  All-inclusive sizes run from an XXS-3XL, kids sizes 2-14 and everything in between.  Before I became a consultant, I fell in love with the coziness and flattering style that LuLaRoe clothing brought to my day.  Running around with two young boys, it was easy for me to slip into a fashion rut.  With LuLaRoe in my closet, I always feel stylish and put together, while still in complete comfort!

LuLaRoe clothing is sold by Independent Fashion Consultants like myself via at home parties, pop-up boutiques or on social media (ie: facebook parties)

We have a HUGE selection of textiles, which is amazing because it means that you’re not going to find everyone wearing the same item you bought. There is no catalog, meaning no two consultants have the exact same selection.  You can shop directly from my  inventory and find that awesome print you have been searching for or with new things constantly coming in, you can guarantee you will find something you love just as much, if not more.  If you want to check out my current inventory, please click https://www.facebook.com/groups/lularoecindygoldberg/ and request to join my private VIP group.  I hold online sales and fun, interactive live sales weekly and we have a blast!  I also post frequent specials, discounts and fun giveaways.  Come and check it out..

Contact Cindy Goldberg  lularoecindygoldberg@gmail.com

Note from Rosey – Cindy was kind enough to send me a pair of LuLaRoe leggings as a gift and I have to tell you they are amazing.  I’ve own hundreds of leggings over the years and these are by far the most comfortable ones I’ve ever owned.  Be sure to check out the entire line of clothing!
