Boots That Make Snow Seem Sweet…

11 Jan

Being that all of us here at In{b}tween Boutique are Chicagoans, we’re no stranger to snow…but that doesn’t mean we always like it. This winter has been unusually warm…so warm, there was NO snow on Christmas Day…and there still isn’t.

If you’re anywhere near here, you’ve probably already heard someone mention that the weather is supposed to change tonight…drastically – temps are dropping to 20 degrees and we’re expecting 4 to 8 inches of snow!

Initially, we were pretty bummed about it…but we took to the net and found several pair of hot (and mostly affordable) winter boots – now we’re looking forward to it!



Demi Lovato Joins ‘Teens for Jeans’ Campaign

10 Jan

One in three homeless people are under the age of 18 and that’s why Demi Lovato has joined forces with Aéropostale and Do Something for their annual “Teens for Jeans” Campaign. From January 16 – Febuary 14th you can drop off any of your gently worn jeans at any Aéropostale or P.S. by Aéropostale.

As an added bonus, you can have your school sign up and get in on it! The school with the most jeans donated will receive $5,000, one pair of Aéropostale jeans for every student and a party for the ENTIRE school!!!!

Just think, if every student in your school donated just one pair of jeans…

First Lady Michelle Obama on iCarly

9 Jan

 First Lady Michelle Obama will make a guest appearance on iCarly!  The episode entitled, “iMeet the First Lady” will air on Monday, January 16th (which is also Dr. Martin Luther King’s Day) and will pay tribute and show support for military families!

When asked how meeting the first lady felt, Miranda Cosgrove (Carly) responded, “I’ve been doing the show for a long time and I usually don’t get nervous, but having the first lady on the set, I was really nervous!” She also said the First Lady was a “nice, approachable woman!”

Don’t know about you, but In{b}tween Boutique  will definitely be tuning in – we hear Mrs. Obama even danced during the popular “Random Dancing” segment!

Alex (Selena Gomez) Wins the Wizard Competition…

6 Jan

Hopefully you were watching tonight’s Wizards of Waverly Place – the Family Wizard Competition! Twitter was definitely buzzing hours leading up to the premier and over here…well, the tension was high! The episode had lots of twists & turns, drama & even more drama. From Zeke turning purple and being eaten (and thrown up) by a griffin…to the Russo siblings going to rescue Harper and Zeke and getting disqualified from the wizard competition….and then finding out they were back in the competition!

In the end, Alex won! Well, initially Justin won. But seconds before Professor Crumbs dubbed him the family wizard, Justin admitted the only reason he won was because Alex came back to help him!

I totally applaud the honesty, btw!

And it paid off…after Professor Crumbs announced Alex as the family wizard, he announced he was retiring and wanted Justin to take his place. In the end, Justin became a wizard too! So Alex gets to keep her werewolf beau and Justin gets to keep his vampire boo!

You can still catch Max at the Waverly Sub Station!!!
