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.
