Shoes For America's Last Frontier

Alaska is the largest state in the Union in landmass.  That’s a whole lot of miles to cover.  Outsiders first discovered Alaska in 1741 when Danish explorer Vitus Jonassen Bering sighted it on a voyage from Siberia.  Since then, Alaska has profited from gold rushes and oil booms.  Here are our shoe suggestions to tread the 6,000 miles of Alaskan coastline. As a nod to Alaska’s designation as “America’s Last Frontier”, you’ll need some sturdy boots, ladies, to trek this landmass.  We’ve got the perfect choice:  Boston Proper’s Boho Natural Cowboy Boot.

The first usage appears in three accounts of the Hernando de Soto expedition of 1540.  Boston Proper’s Tassel Flat Sandal is a node to the state’s name, with its earthy styling.  Get 10% off when you sign up from emails with Boston Proper.

People Shy?

Graduation day has come and gone.  The necessity of securing long-term employment looms over you like a dark cloud ready to burst with drenching rain. You see, the problem is you don’t like people.  It’s not that you hate them, it’s just that you work better on your own. It is a daily challenge for some. Yes, it is true.  Shocking as it may seem, there are a myriad of intelligent individuals who prefer solitude in their work and cringe when confronted by the social interaction of an office.  In fact, these folks that may appear to be withdrawn in the workplace actually thrive in their fields of interest.

Olfaction Dissatisfaction

Unfortunately, there’s no such thing as Axe Body Spray or Secret Ultra Dry for cars. Car smells can be intensely annoying, as we are trapped in our cars for sometimes hours at a time.  Even if after a wh we go “nose blind” to the smell, others entrapped in your car will smell it.  If you have a pesky odor torturing your olfaction, here’s what you can do about it.  First off, if you ever smell gasoline in your car, that’s a very bad thing and you need to get your car checked immediately.  There are five culprits:  injector leak, fuel tank leak, fuel line leak, faulty canister, or a missing gas cap.

Exploring Arizona

You need some impressive, rugged shoes to explore the Grand Canyon State, Arizona.  We’ll show you what shoes to don while prancing among the Saguaro cacti or ambling about Sedona.  Also known as the copper state, the amount of copper on the roof of the Capitol building is equivalent to 4,800,000 pennies.  We promise, though, that you won’t be spending so many pennies on our shoes.  The state colors of Arizona are federal blue and old gold and it seems that Boston Proper has the perfect shoe for the proud ladies of Arizona.  The Jeweled Ivanka Trump wedge glitters in the state’s proud colors.

Taken For Granted

The other day, strolling through the aisles of the local grocery store, I encountered a young couple engaged in a serious discussion over what type of mustard to purchase.  There were over nine varieties of this yellow condiment available on the shelves and they could not seem to agree on what would be the best option. It got my mind working about the numerous items we take for granted in our daily lives, such as: 1. Radio Shows
No, we don’t take radio for granted, but the plethora of radio shows available to us as we begin our commute every day is astounding.
