Lugz Women’s Empire Hi Boot Review

A Note From Rosey:  I asked my niece Elise to do this review as I wanted to get a younger person’s perspective on this boot.  This is her review.

I tend to be a very picky person with my footwear. I don’t like designs or a lot of extras because I want shoes to be versatile. I live in New York City, and our weather can be quite random. Sometimes I need boots in April, but I don’t want them to look like I just came out of the Winter trenches!

So when I was asked to do a review of Lugz footwear, I was a little hesitant. But when I looked online at their diverse collection, I was stunned. There was an abundant variety of styles and types of shoes, as well as a range of vibrant colors. And when I landed on the Lugz Empire Hi in Black Cherry/Gum, I was sold. Can you say gorgeous? I couldn’t wait to try them on.

I love so much about these boots. They’re thick, making them perfect for wintery and rainy weather. The red tones on these are gorgeous, and the design only adds. I’ve found sometimes that designs on boots really takes away from them, but I think this is design makes them even more unique than other boots. The slight silver in the Lugz logo looks classy. Basically, they’re beautiful.


I wore them with cut off ankle jeans and thick boot socks, and it added a pop of flare to my outfit. They were comfortable on my walk to a local coffee shop, and I had room to layer up on socks if I needed (which, due to the weird sizing of my feet, I have to do). The laces tied easily as well, and I thought it looked stylish with the knot showing and tucked in. They breathe very well. Sometimes you have to worry about boots getting ruined by squatting, but these held.


I think these would still be a big hit even if you wore your jeans or pants over the tongue; I just happened to really love the look. I truly think the product is made well. I really love them and I can’t wait to try them out for a longer day. I would highly recommend Lugz in the future! The boot I have is a 9, and I’m typically a 9.5 but can go as small as an 8 in boots. I have some room (hence why I need extra sock layers), so maybe consider a size down. They’re very quick with shipping so you’ll have them on your feet in no time!

The Lugz Empire Hi Women’s boot comes in 10 fashion colors and is available in size 5 to 11 and half sizes too.  You can find the Lugz Empire Hi in Black Cherry/Gum or the other color choices at www.lugz.com

I received the Power AirFryer Oven from makers of the Power AirFryer and Copper Chef products for review.

Now if you follow me you know I have deep appreciation for Chef Eric Theiss the inventor – he is my hero!  I love each and every product that I have received for review so far since I started working with his company.  At least one of his products is used daily (some days several times a day) in our house.

Melitta Signature Series Pour-Over Coffee Brewer 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 in this review.

We love fresh brewed coffee here at our house.  My husband is a stickler for the old fashion peculator type brew so that’s usually what we make on the days that he is home.

On the other days when it’s just me at home I’m not thrilled at the prospect of having to make an entire pot of coffee for just one cup so this is why I love Melitta’s Signature Series Pour-Over Coffeemaker. This little wonder will brew a fresh cup of coffee in seconds.  The unique cone design enables you to see into the cup without lifting to avoid overfill and making a mess. The brew cone is designed to fit several mug sizes. The cone is top-rack dishwasher safe plastic and is BPA free.  Uses either the #2 or #4 size cone filters that are available at any market today.

Best Choice Products Review – Set of 2 Parsons Dining Chairs in Beige (SKY3534)

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 in this review. This post may contain affiliate links.

I received for review the Best Choice Products Set of 2 Parsons Dining Chairs in Beige (Model SKY3534) which sell for $79.99. Breaking that down each individual chair is $39.99.  I don’t know about you but it’s almost impossible to find chairs of this quality for a reasonable price.

Shipping is always free at Best Choice on any order regardless of the total spent. My chairs were delivered via FedEx shipping in 3 days after they were ordered.  The company states that the items will arrive in 3-5 days so mine arrived in record time which is nice if you are in need of something for an upcoming event at your home.

These chairs were easy to assemble and only took my husband and I approximately 30 minutes to complete.

I have a dinning room set with 6 chairs so when we have more than 6 guests we have to use uncomfortable folding chairs for some of our guests.  That is why I was so thrilled to receive these beautiful padded chairs from Best Choice.  They will really come in handy when we have more than 6 people for dinner.

The chairs are solid wood construction. The linen fabric upholstery is beautiful and the chairs are extremely comfortable to sit on.

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.

As many of you know I am a licensed manicurist and hold a current active license in the state of New Jersey. I try to keep current with new products through my trade publications but this one slipped right by me.

I must admit this is my first time trying a Chill Zone product.  I was not familiar with this line so when the kind folks at Chill Zone agreed to send me some samples of their products I was more than happy to give them a try.

They came beautifully packaged (see photo below) and it was a nice surprise to open the box and find that they were packaged with such care.

I must admit I’m no beauty expert but I do love to try new products as they reach the market.  I have tried everything from drug store products to high end designer products and for me the high end designer products are just not worth the extra money.  Now you may not agree and I respect that but here is my take on make up and how I decide what to buy.

First and foremost I do my research before I buy any product.  I read reviews and ask around for suggestions.  I also visit stores like Sephora where the staff is extremely knowledgeable about all things beauty and I ask for advice.
