It is that time of the year again when mum is planning to get me a new pair of shoes since the Christmas season is just around the corner. If you must know, I do not normally wear shoes. I am mostly clad in my sandals as I prefer to wear them whenever we are out and I guess mum agreed that they are the most comfortable for my feet. So, I seldom wear my pair of rubber shoes and always opt for my comfy sandals before heading out the door. For this year, though, mum is considering to get me a pair of shoes from Reef, or similar shops, for a change. Brands like this have the style and sensibility of shoes while giving your feet the comfort of sandals, just perfect for rowdy little boys like me!

Shopping for toddlers’ shoes can be quite tricky but here are a few tips from mum you might want to keep in mind the next time you go shopping for your little one’s footwear:

Go For Comfort

Little boys and girls loves to move around a lot, and it is rather difficult to be our fun and boisterous way when we are moving about in tired and aching feet, that is why comfort is the first thing you need to consider whenever you plan to buy us shoes! Opt for those brands and styles that are made of soft fabrics and similar material that will protect our little digits without hurting them. Mum’s top pick is this cool and groovy pair of Grom Trollop slip-on shoes. It sure resembles her own pair of slip-ons, so we can go out in our matching shoes!

Consider Style

Of course, mums want their kiddos to be this little fashionistas, so they would always opt for those kid-friendly, yet stylish brands that will make their little ones look awesome! Going for shoes in different colorful shades would be ideal, but it is also important to stick to some of the basic and general colors that will go well with your little ones’ clothes. This Grom Soulwolf‘s neutral shade is a perfect example, as they will go so well with any little boy’s wardrobe.

Let the Little One Choose

Nothing excites us more than to have a say in any decision our parents make, so make sure you get the little ones’ opinion and consider it before making a purchase. The trick is to give us a couple of different shoes to choose from to make your job easier. Narrow your choices and let us pick which of the pairs we’d like to bring home, it will make us look forward to wearing the item knowing that we chose it ourselves. Plus, it also allows for everyone to enjoy the shopping experience to the fullest!

Tips on Spotting Replica Omega Seamaster Watches

grown up stuff, guest post, tips + tricks

Omega is a glorious fashion house that is founded in 1848. This brand is well-known for its top quality watches. Designer watches including coveted Omega watches are very popular with counterfeiters all around the world. However, replicas can be easily differentiated from the authentic things. Below are some tips on spotting replica Omega Seamaster watches.

1. First, you should examine the face of the replica Omega Speedmaster watch at issue with a magnifying glass (a jeweler’s loupe). You should check the font on the date wheel and on the face. If the font is offset or blurry, this watch is probably a replica. Don’t forget to examine the luminous dots. If the dots aren’t perfectly round, then the possibility of its being a replica increases.

2. The serial number is underneath one of the lugs. Don’t forget check it. If there is not a serial number on this replica Omega Speedmaster watch, then it is surely a replica. If you find the serial number but still doubt it may be a replica, please source the serial number on the Omega’s official website. In fact, many manufacturers that produce replicas print the same serial number on all of the timepieces they produce.

3. Please check the bezel of your watch. The printing of a replica Omega Speedmaster watch usually is blurry or out of place. What’s more, the bright dot at the top that should be in the center may be off-center. Sometimes, the bezel doesn’t properly click into place while it is turning.

4. Find a photo of the caseback that your watch is supposed to come with. Then compare it with that of your watch. The case back of an Omega Seamaster replica watch is usually close. However, it is not as perfectly close as that of the real thing. Sometimes, replica Omega Seamaster watches have misspellings and design elements which are not in the right place.

5. If you want to confirm the authenticity of your Omega Seamaster watch, the best way is to remove the caseback of your watch to view the movement. The movement of a replica Omega Seamaster watch doesn’t have a serial number which matches the number on the case. What’s more, the movement of a replica usually looks cheap. Find a picture of the movement of your model. Then compare the movement in your hand with the picture. Nowadays, this is the most accurate, although the most difficult and involve, way to spot a replica Omega Seamaster watch.
