Seasonal Splurge: Tires with Tread Advan Sport All-Season

Paying is painstaking buy the payoff is all glory. This winter I said forget it to a two-carat diamond tennis bracelet and hello to a new set of all-season sport tires. I shopped around all fall and my mechanic told me where to head. He sent me to Discount Tire, (in Perrysburg, Ohio) where “all they do is tires.” I wanted something ultra-sporty because there isn’t any sense in driving a turbo-charged import with tires that don’t offer premium performance. Yokohama has a new model, the Advan Sport A/S that sells for about one-hundred dollars less (purchase of four) than Michelin. Made for supreme handling the structure showcases a performance shoulder to enhance cornering. The asymmetrical tread design aggrandizes “spirited driving across (insert adective) weather conditions”. After seeing car after car in the ditch on my way down Scenic 105 this morning (after I shoveled the driveway) I was happy to have them. They can be bought on credit with 0% financing for six months.

Second Home for Summer Marblehead Estates & Yacht Club

I’m out at Marblehead Estates & Yacht Club showcasing the boat slips, luxury condos and lots for sale. The lots are situated in four different places around the development.

  1. Traditional Lots $49,900
  2. Pond Lots $59,900
  3. Canal $99,900 – $119,900
  4. Bayfront $249,900


As you can see from the feature photo the kitchen countertops are made with a striking quartz. Here’s a look at the living space in the second floor condo, two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo overlooking the marina. The third bedroom has been left out to make for an open floor plan and open up extra space for dining.

The condos are designed for a weekend escape, or summer place in Ohio’s Vacationland! For the fashion I’m wearing today during this March snowstorm go here. A look at the prices again and information for connecting with me. Call my Ohio number, or if you have the 305 saved in your phone, feel free to use that.

Fall in Love with the Fashion when the temps are freezing wear the warmth

When I realized via an email from the Perrysburg office we were about to be hit with a March Snowstorm I could have quivered and called in. But, instead I took advantage that all winter gear and fashion is on clearance and relished in the fact the wintry mix is a fashion show to celebrate.

As always, I tossed on Victoria Secrets high waist ultimate yoga pants in the must-have black.  The pants are sixty dollars and can be worn with anything (as you’ve seen multiple times). I almost wore them to Thanksgiving dinner. The top is from the 2000 collection and I venture outside every winter in this item wondering when this fashion piece will appear worn. The material  turns the heat back into my body.

My cousin gifted me a Mossimo Marbled Infinity Scarf. I just can’t get enough of this adorable accessory. Sometimes I toss the textured fabric around my neck when I’m working at home or in my pajamas for a stylish effect. A pink, white and grey fair isle ski cap is the only color for this wardrobe scheme. I picked up the head warmer at one of the local sporting goods store.

The showpieces of this March Snowstorm fashion spectacular: Payless’ knock-off option of the Sorel Joan of Arctic Boots. The Women’s Torrent Weather Boot showcases a faux fur cuff which coordinates perfectly with the American Rag Coat. The duck boot design is achieved with leather and rubber and special features to keep the toes warm when the mercury falls as low as thirty degrees below celsius. Right now the mercury reads twenty degrees Fahrenheit. Joan of Arctic Boots, given four out of five stars for warmth and comfort are about two-hundred dollars. Deemed best for heavy snow the brand touts a vulcanized rubber shell.

The parka is the American Rag Faux-Fur-Trim Puffer Coat. Wear this when the real deal is maybe just a bit much for the office, and… for showing real estate in arctic-like elements. I’m out at Marblehead Estates and Yacht Club with plenty of boat slips, two and three bedroom condos, plus pond, canal and bayfront lots to sell. This is a premium, lux living resort community. For a quick low down on the real estate go here.
