Why choose Sandgrens for your Swedish clogs and clog boots?  I will tell you. Pure. Perfection. From the luxurious, soft, Nubuck leather uppers, to the handcrafted wooden bases; these Sandgrens clog boots are fashionable, fun and feel wonderful to my feet!  Sandgrens handcrafts the beautiful handmade clogs and clog boots using the finest materials around the world. This Swedish clog business has been perfecting clogs since 1846. Wow!

Sandgrens About Us collage pic for KNK review

Sandgrens makes you feel special from the time you order your clog boots ’til you slip them on. I have purchased many times from shops whose presentation of their product is just lovely.  I have to say that Sandgrens is at the top of the list for presentation and for making me feel ultra special.  From box to clog boot I was wow-ed.  They are all about the details and didn’t miss one, in my opinion.

These clog boots from Sandgrens are a new twist on the boot for me. I had no idea if I would care for them or not. And I wondered if they would be practical.  I’ve never owned or even tried on a pair of Swedish clogs so this was a new and exciting experience for me.  

I have to tell you it was like these clog boots were made just for me, which they weren’t.  They are the size I requested and they literally feel and fit like a glove. Seriously, how did they know my foot?  I don’t know how they did it, but they are perfect for my feet.

So how do they feel? Yes, that is a wood base and I was very interested to learn how my flat feet would react to a clog boot and a base made of wood.  What I thought they might feel like was incorrect.  Do they feel different than other shoes, yes. The comfort, though, oh the comfort is there for your little or even large feet. And I am very much all about being comfortable.  

I did heed their advice on their FAQ page. Clogs and clog boots are designed to allow your heel to “slip” when you walk, even if you have a closed back clog or boot. So keep that in mind when purchasing the Swedish clog boot.  It generally takes a couple of weeks to get used to your new shoes and the leather will stretch.  They suggest wearing them for no more than a couple of hours a day for the first week, and half a day for the next week, so that your feet and shoes will adjust to each other. Give your shoes some time.

They also say that sizing can, and most likely will, vary between different styles, e.g. a high vs. low heel, or a boot vs. a sandal clog.  So, they recommend that you carefully read through the size chart before you purchase.

The Sandgrens Boston clog boot comes in several beautiful colors: Navy (as shown), Wild Mushroom, and Berry.  The Nubuck leather is sooo rich in color and very soft. You can find out how to care for your clogs and clog boots by going to the FAQ page on Sandgrens website.

The handcrafted wooden heel, made of stylish chestnut-stained European lime wood, is one of the finest heels I have stood on. I love how sturdy & solid they feel!  The heel even gives me a little bit of height, which I love as well.

The inside zipper is awesome, as is the buckle around the clog boot. The buckle is removable and easy to position or take off, depending on how you want your clog boot to look.

I have fallen in love with these Sandgrens Boston boot clogs, as have many people around me.  I look forward to wearing them all around town and being able to wear them for many, many years to come.

I received a copy of Moms’ Night Out for review and one for giveaway. All opinions are my own.

This past week, Moms’ Night Out was released on BluRay and DVD!  If you haven’t seen the movie yet, you are in for a real treat.  It’s a good, wholesome, laugh-out-loud movie the whole family will enjoy!

All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation…a long-needed momsnight out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation and food not served in a paper bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for three hours—what could go wrong?

MNO BluRay

Plenty can go wrong!  Starring Sarah Drew, Patricia Heaton, Sean Astin and country music star Trace Adkins, Moms’ Night Out is a light-hearted film that follows the busy lives of three mothers as they attempt to have one celebratory night on the town, only to have it turn into complete chaos. 


Allyson, played by Drew, is a mom and mommy blogger.  The movie opened in a hilarious scene where chaos rules while Allyson chases after her kids, cleaning up their messes and her obsession with a clean home isn’t helping.  After a rough morning, that had me in stitches, Allyson meets up with mommy friends Izzy and the preacher’s wife, Sondra and a plan to have a moms’ night out is hatched.  Of course, this means the dad’s are in charge of the kids and well, they aren’t the most reliable in this department.

As the girls head out for an evening of recharging and relaxation, they soon realize that even without the kids, things don’t always go as planned.  Enter dinner plans that don’t pan out, a sister-in-law with a missing baby and husbands on the way to the ER with the kids and you have one hilarious adventure including car chases, tattoo parlors, biker gangs, even jail.

I have seen Moms Night Out several times and I laugh each time.  I love that I can watch it with the kids and each time I do, I am left thankful for my own busy mommyhood.  It is a feel-good movie that shows you are not alone in this parenting gig but it can certainly be worse.

The Blu-ray and DVD are loaded with family-friendly bonus materials, including a blooper reel, deleted scenes and commentary with the Erwin Brothers and producer Kevin Downes.  Fans can also enjoy special featurettes, including a discussion with filmmakers in The Heart of MOMSNIGHT OUT, giving the back story that inspired the film as something their wives and mothers could relate to. The Art of Improv is an exploration into the film’s experimental improvisation, and The Art of Action gives fans a deconstructed look at the film’s car chase sequence.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is hitting theaters next month!  I am so excited to see one of our favorite children’s books come to life. 

Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he’s not alone when his mom (Jennifer Garner), dad (Steve Carell), brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn’t had one. “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” directed by Independent Spirit Award-winner Miguel Arteta (“The Good Girl,” “Cedar Rapids,” “Youth in Revolt”) from a screenplay by Rob Lieber, is a 21 Laps Entertainment/Jim Henson Company production. The film hits theaters nationwide Oct. 10, 2014.


In celebration of the film release, I wanted to tell you about the sweepstakes they are conducting with a chance to win a family vacation!

To enter all you need to do is share your Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad throwback family photo using #VeryBadDaySweeps on Twitter or Instagram for a chance to win an Adventures by Disney trip for four to Disney Aulani, resort & spa!

Whether you have a store front with an additional website, or work solely as an online proprietor, utilizing all information available to you to increase sales is imperative.

This innovative ecommerce app works not only to benefit the website owner and seller, but as a means of help to a buyer as well. Not only will you as a business owner be able to increase your sales conversions, your customers will be naturally drawn back to your site to meet their needs in the future thus creating a long term repeat customer.

What Is TrackIf?

This great back end tool is a method to track your customers habits on your site. A simple code added to your site allows you to see what potential customers are interested in, as well as the price points they find appropriate. TrackIf gives you not only information about your customers habits, it gives them the opportunity to easily let you know what they would like to see happen. In the process, it allows your customer to take control of their shopping experience and give you feedback in a simple and non intrusive to them way.


Why Choose TrackIf For My Site?

  • Additional Buttons To Remind or Notify of Updates, Sales & Price Changes. These are easily placed next to the “buy now” button on all products. This gives your potential customers the ability to specify the price point they would be willing to pay, so if the product goes on sale at that price they would receive an email notice encouraging them to come back and make the purchase.
  • Out Of Stock Notices. Addition of a “notify me” button to all pages so if an item is out of stock, you won’t lose future sales. As soon as it is back in stock your customer will be alerted and return to make their purchase. This also gives you an insight on how many additional products to have on hand to supply your customer base in the future.
  • Integrated Social Commerce Capture. This utilizes your existing social media following to increase sales without paying the high fees social media often charges to promote your business. When a customer shares a product from your website to social media, they will be given the opportunity to receive notices regarding that product in the future. Sale prices, special events and promos will be sent to them as requested. No more paying extra on your social media pages to promote your sales to the existing followers! TrackIf does it for you.
  • Wishlist Price Change Updates & Promotions. When someone adds an item to their wishlist, they are now opted into an email update when that price changes or a sale includes the item. Additionally, you can look at the items most often added to wishlists and then create a special promotional event to increase sales on that one item.
  • Search Tracking. This unique addition to the TrackIf Ecommerce app is great for those sites wanting to know what their customers are looking for. A “Save This Search” button added to the site allows your visitors to be alerted of new or return items matching their search.
