The Plus Life Blog Shares Where To Find Extra Wide Calf Boots That Actually Fit Wide Calves

The Best Extra Wide Calf Boots In The World

 

Shoes are by far my biggest fashion struggle, and after months of chatting with many of you I’ve realized we’re all in the same boat.   I’ve written about wide width sneakers and wide width mules but the NUMBER one question I get now is about where to find the best wide calf boots that are ACTUALLY wide calf.

For YEARS, I would get excited after hearing about a new, awesome wide calf boot only to go try it on and realize that even most popular wide calf boots aren’t wide enough for me.

I love hearing from you and some of the best content I’ve created has stemmed from the questions you ask me on a daily basis.  Please chime in with a comment below… what would be your top three topics you’d like to see covered on The Plus Life in 2019?  I’m working on my 2019 content calendar now, so your best ideas will be included! 

Simplifying The Holidays

The holidays can be such a stressful time for all of us, when they really should be joyous.  We’re spending quality time with loved ones, celebrating generosity and experiencing the magic of the season.  I’m guilty of letting the holidays stress me out sometimes, but this year I was determined to change that.  Here’s a rundown of what I’ve learned and how I simplified my holiday season this year.

Quick, Easy and Inexpensive Holiday Cards

There are a few things that I need my holiday cards to be…

Easy.  Quick turnaround. Inexpensive. Festive. Personal.

In general, I don’t like wasting money on paper products like birthday cards, gift wrap, etc. because for the most part they get thrown away. I would rather save the $5 I’d spend on fancy gift wrap and get a better gift with cute but inexpensive card and paper.

Photo holiday cards are a little different because many people (including me) do save them. I still don’t need them to be the fanciest pieces of paper ever, so they’re not something I like investing a lot of money into.

The Coziest Gift Guide You’ve Ever Seen

Y’all, the holiday season is the best!  There are parties, family time, and pretty much all of my favorite things.  After December 25th, though, I’m usually done with winter and just want to cozy up at home with Kevin and my dog as much as possible.

I know I’m not alone in this sentiment, so I think the perfect holiday gift is one that brings comfort for the remaining winter months.  If you’re like me and enjoy a cozy night in, you might want to consider these gift ideas as “treat yourself” ideas instead.

If you’re shopping for your favorite homebody, he or she will thank you for any of these gifts under the tree this year!

Cheers to cozy comfort and relaxation!

The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide For Women in 2018!

Did you catch the announcement that The Plus Life will be participating in BLOGMAS by providing a TON of awesome holiday-inspired content throughout the month of December? Well, it’s true… and here we are again for part two in the series!

Check out the first post here to read about 15 awesome holiday traditions you could start this year!

Today’s post is the next in the Blogmas series, and it’s been extra fun to prepare for you!  I have a few special gift guides coming your way as part of the series, but I thought it would be fun to start with a roundup of the exact items I PERSONALLY would love to receive this year for Christmas.  I don’t currently own any of the items on this list but they’re all things I’ve been considering purchasing or hinting about to my family.

Real talk, this is a LONG list.  I have absolutely zero expectation of receiving all or even most of these items.  I’ll narrow this down to a few of the things I want the  most and share it with the people who’ll be shopping for me.  Hi, Mom! Hi, Kevin!

Roundup: All The Best Cozy Sweaters Available Right Now

Winter isn’t really my thing.  I LOVE the holidays but aside from that the cold weather really just makes me want to curl up in a ball next to the fireplace and never leave my house.

Cozy sweaters are pretty much the only thing that pull me through the cold winter days when the fireplace and my pajamas aren’t in the cards for me.
