Blue Sky Scrubs

Remember the days when scrubs were either blue or covered in silly patterns? That is definitely no longer the case.

If you work in the medical field and are looking for nursing uniform scrubs, then you should certainly check out Blue Sky Scrubs. They have fashionable uniforms for medical personnel. I especially enjoy the tops that come in Carnegie green and turquoise. Very cute!

The company was started by a medical student, who didn't love the idea of wearing ugly scrub hats and who also had a hard time fitting her hair into the caps. She started making her own Pony Scrub hats and the rest is fashionable (medically speaking) history.

Blue Sky also offers scrubs for men and children, as well as other items such as lab coats and more.

check out Halloween Mart for your costume needs

So, I love dressing up for Halloween and I also love seeing what else everyone is wearing. Last year, I was Lucille Ball, but I'm not sure what to do this year. If you're in the same predicament, might I suggest looking for Halloween costumes at Halloween Mart? They have great stuff for adult Halloween costumes 

And if you have little ones, they also have kids Halloween costumes:

Halloween Mart also has daily deals and an awesome clearance section. You can definitely find an awesome costume for a great price.

work it! Express business suits

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Express for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I don't wear a lot of suits, but when I do I have a few go to stores to check out. One is definitely Express. They have suits that flatter the body and have the look of an expensive suit at a fraction of the cost. Every person should have a suit in their wardrobe, regardless of profession, because they are just one of those staples that can come in handy on any given day.

Also, they have suits for both men and women, so your dude can buy one as well. Is there anything sexier than a guy in a well tailored suit? I think not.

Check out a couple of women's suits:



And some men's suits:




Also, did you know that there is an Express sweepstakes going on right now? You can win a $500 suiting makeover from Express.
