If you're looking for cute, comfy, super lightweight sneakers that won't cost you an arm and a leg, then check out Aleader, who has a pair of sneakers in my $400 value jackpot giveaway ending tonight! They just sent me this adorable pair of Energy Cloud kicks and I'm in love!!!
They're super duper lightweight, featuring a breathable knit upper (available in light pink, light blue, grey/white, and grey/black), quick-dry hygroscopic technology, and a flexible, durable, anti-slip shock-absorbing EVA sole.
I love that there's no loose tongue to drive me nuts, and the heel comes up high with a very thick and comfy lining (see photo above)! The sole is quite padded with a nice supportive instep but not too high, just right.
Regarding size, I'm usually somewhere between a 9 - 10, it's so hard to know with shoes right? I ordered a 9.5 and they're a tad big, fine with thicker socks but I'd recommend getting your regular size or even sizing down if you're in between sizes, especially if you plan to wear barefoot or with thin socks in the warmer months.
Whether you're going out for a run or running errands, these shoes will keep your feet happy! Because they're so lightweight, they're great for traveling, as well!
Aleader has TONS of other shoes as well, from kids snow and rain boots to mens' water shoes! Check them out at aleadergear.com or on Amazon (affiliate link).

If you're like me, you're always looking for a fun way to update your walls, and get those favorite vacation and family photos up on display! If this sounds like you, then you're in the right place because today I've got a review and GIVEAWAY sponsored by the amazing Canvas Discount!!

I do love a good canvas print, but wanted to try some of their more unique items, so I went with a custom rug and wall hanging!
The photo rugs come in size 20x28" (the size I got, great as a door mat) and 35x55". It came rolled up which left it a bit wrinkled. The wrinkles are only noticable on the white space, which looking back on it is probably not a great color for a rug anyway LOL, so my advice is to go for a photo that is darker or more colors than a light/solid background. Overall I'm really impressed with the rug - it's super soft low pile, almost a velvet type feel. It's vibrant and the image and text came out great! The quality of stitching around the sides looks perfect, and the back is a non-slip rubber. It's not a thick memory foam type of pad, but it's not a simple thin material either. Kinda in between. They use UV-resistant ink so it should last quite a while!
I also ordered their new canvas wall hanging and absolutely love it, especially in comparison to the wall hangings we have from Japan that are so difficult to put together. Canvas Discount's has lovely premium pine wooden bars that have magnets inside of them, so they just snap together on top of the canvas!! So easy to put together and adjust so it's all laying perfectly! The canvas print came out beautiful, and it comes with a leather-effect cord hanger, already installed into the top wooden bar. Couldn't be easier! Also, the canvas is simple and could be mounted or framed on its own later if you decide to switch it up. You can order portrait/vertical or horizontal/landscape orientation in size 8x12", 12x16" or 16x24" (what I got), or 12" or 24" square.
After you narrow down what kind of product you want, and what image to use (the two hardest parts, of course), ordering is really easy since they have sizes and templates for every product. Personally, I used Canva.com to create my images exactly how I wanted them (with font overlay for the rug and converted the wall hanging image to black and white), then uploaded those to Canvas Discount. They provide a helpful mockup after you upload, which showed me I had to resize and try again since my text was getting cut off. Thank goodness for the mockup, after fixing the image it came out perfect! Products are ready to ship in under 24 hours! SO FAST!!
