Kate Spade Activity Tracker

Whether you know me in real life or just follow me on social media you should have picked up on the fact that I love the Kate Spade brand. So last fall when Kate Spade announced a line of activity trackers I was in. In fact, I love my tracker so much that when I lost it I bought the exact same one.


 
I got one of the early generation fit bits and overall liked it but I had two main challenges with it- it's not attractive and I hated having to charge it / loose it for periods of time due to having to take it apart to charge - right now I think it's in the pocket of a purse I haven't used in a while - emphasis on I think that's where it is. This is really silly but I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to me for products I use to be functional but attractive - I like my kitchen gadgets to all coordinate, I only drink from "cute" tumblers and I'm a sucker for any functional but cute product so the Kate Spade design is a big winner for me.

Sometimes I wear it like a watch, and sometimes since the buckle is so darn cute I flip it around (especially if I'm wearing an actual watch or other bracelets) and it looks like a thin bracelet.
 



From a functionality standpoint the Kate Spade tracker is similar to the basic fit bit model. The biggest difference is that the tracker is powered by a replaceable watch battery and does not require regular charging.
 
The tracker syncs with the Kate Spade tracker app which tracks steps and sleep showing daily totals, daily patterns and patterns overtime. It also allows the user to log a fitness goal - such as water consumption, and count down to milestones.
 
Step Tracking




 To see how you're tracking throughout the day just tap the face twice and the light will blink one to five times to indicate which percentage of the goal has been accomplished.

The tracker can also be set-up to function as a phone command but sadly only one command can be active at a time - I have mine linked to the camera.


 
What the tracker does not do is allows the tracking of multiple goals, track weigh-loss, track heartbeat, sync with apps like my fitness pal, have a food log, or the biggest miss to me - have an alarm function. For me personally I liked these features in the fit bit (minus heart rate, that's not available in the base version) but the charging situation just made it too inconvenient for me - if the Kate Spade tracker app was enhanced to allow me to log more fitness related items and the alarm feature was added to a future model it would be the most perfect activity tracker in the world. But for the price point it's the one that fits my lifestyle the best.
 
Apparently my opinion is not in the majority because they hit the sale rack only a few months after being released and so when I scooped up my replacement tracker I bought an extra for a friend but turns out it doesn't fit her needs. So, I've decided to gift it to another friend. Just follow me on instagram  - instagram.com/memphismandysue because at some point this week I will be giving away a new in box tracker identical to mine.
 
PS: If you are impatient or just want to be guaranteed to have one I did see them in other styles at Marshalls for $34.99 (the one on Winchester for you Memphis fashionistas)

Sephora Play April 2017

This month's Sephora Play box featured some of the top selling Sephora products, here's what's inside:


Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
I currently use this primer and it helps my foundation go on smooth and keeps my face from getting too oily during the day. It's light weight and has no scent and one tube lasts a really long time - I bought mine before my wedding and that was six months ago.

Make Up For Ever Aqua XL eyeliner
The Make Up For Ever brand is very popular at Sephora and very nice quality products. This eyeliner doesn't smudge and goes on smooth.

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cloud Cream
This is a primer / moisturizer combo and I really like the way it feels - very light weight and makes my skin feel silky

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate
This says it's an "intense exfoliator" but I found it to be very fine. The paste is ather think and a yucky green color with a heavy plant scent, but hey if it works who cares what it looks like.

Sephora Waterproof …

Memphis Fashion Week 2017 Emerging Designers

The last night of Memphis Fashion Week is the favorite night for many local fashionistas because it shows off what is up and coming in our city. Once again I was able to grab a great seat and see the pieces up close.

First up for the evening was two time previous winner Tiena. I think it's easy to see why she's won twice before - just wow on these beautiful designs!





I love the model's expression here - it's like she just loves wearing this so much she can't contain it.








I love all of it but the yellow ruffle dress has to be my favorite, it's not a color I would typically be drawn to but there's something so nice about it!
Next up was the teen collection, these pieces were designed by beautiful young ladies all under 20. Once again, I am a complete and total life slacker. Seriously - I was blown away by how talented these girls are:






Mommy Lhey Little Bits Box April 2017

Yesterday my 2nd Little Bits Box arrived and I am so in love! One thing I think is really great about this subscription is that there's the option to pre-order a month at a time (it's $5 more than subscribing) and there's any option to cancel without having to give two month's notice - this is great if a particular month's theme just isn't for you or life happens and you need to take a break. The April theme is "Believe in Magic" and features whimsical creatures such as fairies and unicorns. Let's take a look inside: I know that's a lot to look at so I'll break down the items for you. First up is the sticker sheets - each box comes with eight sheets and they are very high quality stickers and able to be used in a variety of planners:
I can't imagine this will be any every month item but in March we received pocket size travelers notebooks and this month we received personal size. These notebooks are so cute and I love the matching …

Memphis Fashion Week 2017 Kickoff Event

Last night Memphis Fashion Week started with a kickoff event at The Lab. MFW is run by Memphis Fashion Design Network and The Lab is the office / creative space for Memphis designers. Read more about it here . The Kickoff Party featured products from designers participating in this week's event and offered fashionistas the opportunity to meet the designers and shop their wares. Although there were many beautiful pieces on hand I decided to wait on purchases but did go home and follow some of the favorites I saw on social media so I can keep up with them for the future. I've been setting aside most of my fashion money for the past two months to shop the Victoria Beckham collection at Target that's being released on Sunday - it's a big week for fashion! Some of my favorite fashions from the event: Tiena Gwin  Sheila J Designs This dress is reversible - how fun!  Beg and Borrow
Accessories I loved but didn't get a chance to photograph were Brave Design, a local jewelry d…
