Not that we ever need an excuse to celebrate dads (or shop!) but we can always use some ‘censible’ advice when it comes to gift giving. And, as if you didn’t know it, shopping through the marketamerica.com portal is a great way to save money on those gas prices that are on the rise (As I am entering this blog the news is reporting that prices may hit $4.50 a gallon by July 4th!)
For the music enthusiast there is nothing like a good pair of headphones. Dad can tune in to his rock-n-roll jams and tune out the world with Sony’s Over-The-Ear Noise -Canceling Headphones. They are available in black, have incredible sound and are a cool $99.99. Available at bestbuy.com.
So naturally I looked for some sort of amazing gadgets but there were so many! Then at barnesandnoble.com I found something even better – ‘Gadget Nation” by Steve Greenberg. It’s an incredible book that not only has some of the most dynamic products I have ever seen but also shares some truly behind-the-scenes inspirational stories of how an inventors dreams become reality. It also costs less than most gadgets: $11.97.
BURN BABY BURN!
Get Dad up and going! It’s not so easy to get the gym these days but it’s very important for a longer healthier life and daily physical, mental and emotional well-being. The best product, hands down, to get him going: TORCH Pre-Burn (an MA featured brand) Get a15-day supply for only $59.95.
A STEP AHEAD!
Here is another way to put some pep into Dad’s step with the Orca shoe from Skechers. It’s super comfortable, hip and a great compliment getter. Absolutely get them in the camouflage color! Just $30 at Skechers.com.
ROCK IT OUT!

As you know, Michael Cohen has been providing us with tips on getting that star-studded look with the help of the One-Star High-Top shoe by Converse.If you don’t fancy high-top shoes, you should check out Famous Footwear, a recent addition to our Ma Partner Stores. They carry an extensive line of men’s, women’s and children’s shoes from dressy to athletic shoes for any occasion.Currently, they are running a ½ price sale on every shoe with no exclusions!What a deal!
What makes this an even sweeter deal though is the fact that instead of driving over to the store, I can simply order from my web portal and get the same deal, minus the hassle!After looking through what seemed like thousands of types of shoes, I settled upon a pair of Ann Marino Qywnne shoes (on sale for $49.99) in lime green, a great color for the springtime I might add!While I was at it, I picked up a pair of black Steve Madden Nevell’s (on sale for $64.99) for JR.Normally, these shoes would cost about $150.00, but with this great sale (and their already low prices), I managed to spend under $100.00!
With the added savings, I managed to get two great pairs of shoes at a great price!I can also wear these shoes while I’m in Spain, or even when we go out for the evening.In addition, JR can wear his shoes with his One-Star Boot-cut jeans that Michael mentioned for that dressy but laid back look!
Well, I’m off to Spain.Keep checking back daily for new tips and suggestions!

It was a crazy weekend in Miami and star studded! The big event in town was Russell Simmon’s Art For Life event which celebrates and supports youth arts organizations. Dwayne Wade, Wyclef Jean, and John Legend hung out with all the guests and yes my buddy Loren was an Honorary Chair. The photographers couldn’t stop snatching pictures of her, Amber and J.R!
As a celebrity reporter I had to run around Miami that night and instead of day to night outfit issues – I found myself needing an outfit that was perfect for the crowd at Art For Life and for a the opening of a bar in Miami’s funky Wynwood District.
So what I did was hit the marketamerica.com portal and got some key items to make myself look, sophisticated and hip.
THEORY is one of my favorites. I wear it all the time. The silhouettes are modern and the fabrics are amazing. It’s also expensive but through the apparel & fashion section I found bluefly.com. I immediately purchased the ‘Ivory Cotton Right. Sheets” 2-button blazer. It was $345 but I got it for $207.
Then I really started surfing bluefly.com and found the ultimate fashion male ‘must have’ – a Gucci black poplin slim fit dress shirt. Although the price was $229.00 I can ASSURE you it will last for years and be worth every penny. It’s the best underneath a blazer or alone with jeans.
I paired the blazer with the shirt and a black tie. Now – remember last week? My Men’s One-Star High-Tops with Laces ($29.99) and the Converse One Star Boot-Cut Jeans ($34.99)? Well guess what? I paired my new purchases with last weeks and gave myself the look I was going with. Then I got even hipper on my way downtown. I took off my expensive Gucci shirt and paired it with a Mossimo Rock-N-Roll tee I got at Target for only $9.99. It is very hip to wear that under a blazer!
Celebrities such as Brad Pitt and David Beckham love these looks!Rock It Out!
