Yummy…..Love Mint!

You hear the word ‘mint’ – you may think of a flavor, freshening your breath, or a piece of gum. But, the ‘Mint’ I’M talking about is an adorable new boutique that opened in Jenks, OK. Yes, in Jenks, OK – the antique capitol. There amidst treasures of the past sits a hip, urban, and trendy boutique. 

Mint Boutique Business Card

Mint Boutique

Two sisters have started this business. They were driving down main street, Jenks, over the Christmas holiday, saw the space, and thought, “why not?” And, so it began, with a lot of blood, sweat, and tears – they opened their first store, with hopes of already opening more in the future. 

Full of Color

The boutique is following, in line, with this season’s trend – COLOR! Lots of options to put together the perfect summer wardrobe. It is definitely an edgier, trendy vibe that targets a younger customer and/or the very hip fashionista. But, with that, comes a very reasonable price tag, which is favored, when trying to stay with the latest and greatest trend of the moment. 

Studded Cuffs


It’s an adorable store that will soon be on your ‘must stop’ shop list. New merchandise arrives weekly and they follow the ‘when it’s gone, it’s gone’ motto, as there are no reorders on existing merchandise. 

A perfect opportunity to check out Mint Boutique will be during the Jenks Freedom Fest on July 4th. Mint will be having their own party amidst the other festivities with yummy treats, special sales, and a drawing for a gift card too. 

Go check it out…this boutique is sure to unleash a flavor for fashion…..

Thunder Thursday – Giveaway!

Thunder Cuff - Harley and Maudes

Ok, I’m admitting something…here it is: 

I’ve become a Thunder fan fanatic more for all of the fabulous fashions than the amazingly talented team that we have playing hard for our state. I know, it’s terrible, but, true. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE watching the games, our team rocks, and I want them to go ALL THE WAY! But, I’ve fallen in love with all the ‘fan fashions’. And, I want to share some of that with you! 

Today, being game day, I’m giving away a fun and fabulous ‘Thunder Cuff’ from Harley and Maudes. Here is what you have to do – just comment on this blog post and tell me something about you and the Thunder – watching the games, favorite play, favorite fashions, etc. I will draw a name this evening and post the winner! 

Good luck – and Thunder Up! 

Corporate, Casual or Craft Dad? Father’s Day Gift Ideas – GDGC Products

Corporate Dad

Saks Fifth Avenue

Does Dad spend quite a bit of time at the office? Is he a ‘Corporate Dad’? Help him look his best with fun dress shirts, neckwear, and funky socks! The latest craze in menswear – mixing and matching of patterns. ‘Liven up’ the basic blue or white button down shirt with a fun plaid. And, take it one step further by complimenting it with a patterned tie. 

And, who says, ‘corporate wear’ is boring when you add a twist with the fun and funky dress sock!

Donna's Fashions

If there are Dad’s out there like my hubby, I would consider them a “Casual Dad’. There is not much need for suits and ties in their wardrobe. This Father’s Day Gift idea is recommended, directly, from my hubby – he LOVES Tommy Bahama Tshirts. And, I emphasize the word ‘LOVE’! I think he has every Tommy Bahama Tshirt in his closet! I recommend them, because they wash up so well and who doesn’t love their playful summer designs that ‘play on’ familiar words and phrases.

Tommy Bahama also provides some fabulous polo shirts for men in a rainbow of colors, as well as lightweight shorts to keep your Dad looking good in the summer heat.

And what Dad doesn’t love homemade crafts from their kids? The ‘Craft Dad’, of course?  Homemade crafts from the kids are always a fun, easy, and heartfelt way to ‘share the love’ with Dad. They take a little bit of time, but, are packed full of love from the kids. 

*”Dad, you may be a little nuts, but, so sweet too!” – Jar filled with peanut M&M’s. 

*”Dad, you are T-rrific!” – Jar filled with golf tees.

*”My Pop Rocks!” – Popcorn tub filled with various items with the word “pop” in it – pop rocks, tootsie pops, popcorn, etc.
