Summer Fashion with Here Today

By Guest Blogger Carylee from More Pieces of Me.

I wanted to see if I could pull together an entire summer look within the constraints of Here Today’s “Embellish” department. The first piece I was drawn to was this blush tassel necklace because a) tassels and b) blush. What a perfect pairing. Everything else fell into place pretty naturally after that!

Here Today 2

Nothing says “summer” better than a white top! The color pop embroidery on this one makes it that much more special. It has adjustable straps which ensure a perfect fit up top, while the flowy bodice keeps it light and airy. The coordinating soft shorts were a no brainer. I almost picked up an aztec print instead, but decided to keep the overall look monochromatic.

Here Today 3

Everyone needs a giant floppy hat in their life! I fell in love with this one immediately. It falls perfectly and the stripes are so much fun! There was a basic straw fedora that I also had my eye on, but this one made me crave the beach so I knew it was the epitome of summer!

The husband was pretty amazed that this bag rang up as $2.99. Yep! You can’t beat that. …

Decorated Patio With Here Today

Today I am sharing my latest visit to Here Today (in Arnold) and what I found at their store for my backyard patio. My husband and I recently updated the patio with new stamped concrete, furniture and even a pergola! I’ve been wanting to find some accents to decorate the space with, but at an affordable price. Here Today had everything I needed at their store to complete our outdoor space.


Here Today has several other locations in the St. Louis area, such as Fenton (Gravois Bluffs), Lake St. Louis, Florissant and even Fairview Heights, IL. They just opened a store in Shrewsberry.

On the outside of the store, I saw a lot of annuals, vegetable plants and even hanging baskets!

Once I walked inside the store, I started browsing their Celebrate section. This section is where they keep seasonal items. Right now they have a lot of outdoor decor, tools, etc. in this section of the store. The name of the store is ‘Here Today‘, because a lot of their items may be in the store today, but could be gone tomorrow! This is why you want to stop in often, as they are always updating and …

Shopping at Here Today

If you remember a few weeks ago, I mentioned that Here Today reached out to me for a potential collaboration. They provide me with a $50 gift card to shop in exchange for my post about the shopping experience! I was pretty excited for the opportunity considering all of the goodies I discovered during my first visit! I should note that while I was provided with a gift card to shop and post about my experience, all views expressed are my own!

image.jpg10_zpsenk7mmyb

I would say that Here Today reminds me a lot of Marshall’s and TJ Maxx, but with a few bonuses. The first bonus is that it is extremely organized. The one thing that turns me off about shopping at most other discount stores is all of the digging. Shopping should not be stressful and the chaos and clutter can make me a little crazy! But I think it’s great that each section of the store has its own theme that is clearly signed.

Chocolate Strawberry Fizz: Valentine’s Day Drink

By Guest Blogger Denise from STL Motherhood
 
There’s nothing that says Valentine’s Day more than chocolate, sweet strawberries…and bourbon. Chocolate bourbon. I’ve partnered once again with Here Today to bring you the latest holiday bargains from my favorite St. Louis discount store. They challenged me to create a special Valentine cocktail using awesome deals from their Cheers department! They always have a good selection of wine and spirits, and right now they’re featuring deals on favored bourbons and vodkas! The hardest part? Deciding what to bring home!

I scooped up a cart full of ingredients, without any sort of recipe in mind. I’ve never invented a drink before, so grabbed a few core ingredients: bourbon, rum and champagne. I also picked up a half dozen flavors of Vess soda, bottled lemonade and frozen fruit–strawberries and pineapple! The fruit was 99 cents a bag, so I got extra for a round of smoothies. The flavored vodkas, from Oddka were just $4.98 had had delightfully strange flavors like Apple Pie, Carmel Popcorn and Wasabi! I might have to try some of those later. The Woodstock bourbons and Black Cove Spiced rum were just $7.98.

If you just want to buy one kind of a particular beer, you can buy it by the six pack, too. You’ll also spot a bottle of wine that I got for us lady folks that prefer wine over beer.

Awesome Stocking Stuffers, Easy Gifts and Holiday Cookies

So, before we begin, I need to let you know about today’s sponsor, Here Today! They’re a St. Louis store chock full of bargains. There’s five locations currently, and more on the way! Here Today sent me on a shopping trip to my Fenton store, but all my opinions are my own. Here’s what I found!

Stocking Stuffers!

I grabbed plenty of goodies to put in the kid’s stockings. I found a matching hat & glove set for the boys, cute socks for myself and tons of holiday candy. Ryan’s a big fan of Pop Rocks and all things peppermint, so these were a no brainer. The candy was from 50 cents for the giant candy cane to $1.99 for a huge bag of Andes Peppermints! The hat & glove set was just $3.99 and the cute socks were $5.99–both more than half off the regular price!

Here Today is a St. Louis area store, so you’ll only want to enter if one of their stores are near you. You can click HERE to see where their stores are located.

Thank a Teacher this November!

By Guest Blogger Denise from STL Motherhood
 
November is the month for giving thanks, so it’s a terrific time to remember all the awesome teachers who are making this world a better place, one classroom at a time!

Teacher gifts are a touchy subject. Gift shops are stuffed to overflowing with cheesy teacher gifts, but really…how many mugs does any one person need? I searched Amazon for “teacher mug” and got 7,642 results! And some of them aren’t even safe for work. Who comes up with this stuff?

Best Teacher’s Gift Guide

  • Hand drawn card from your child
  • Personalized gifts (think totes & note pads)
  • School supplies (so she doesn’t have to use her own money on your kids)
  • Book for the classroom
  • Gift Cards!!!

Gift cards are easily the number one way to say THANK YOU! to your child’s favorite teacher. No need to worry if that candle is the right scent or if that scarf is the right color…let the teacher pick out their very own gift and they’re sure to be pleased with the results.

My favorite place for gift cards these days is Here Today, the sponsor of this fabulous thank you post! Here …

Cast a Spell on Halloween Spending

By Guest Blogger Denise from STL Motherhood

Costumes! Pumpkins! Buckets of candy! Halloween can be a downright spooky holiday for families on a budget, but not if you have a few “tricks and treats” up your sleeve! According to the National Retail Federation, Americans are going to spend over $6.9 billion on Halloween this year!

But let me show you a little trick for saving money this Halloween, brought to you by my friends at Here Today, the St. Louis retailer who’s all about scaring up a good deal! They sent me on a Halloween shopping trip* to see what kind of ghoulishly good prices I could spot at their Fenton store. They have five stores around the metro area, so hop on your broomstick and fly on over.
(*This is a sponsored post…but you knew that, right?)

The first thing in noticed at my local Here Today was a giant bin of pumpkins, ranging from $1.99 to $5.99. Now, I’m not going to suggest that you totally skip the pumpkin patch–after all, there’s no better place for fall photos! But, you can certainly supplement your pumpkin excursion with these cuties! Maybe a couple small ones for the kitchen counter? …

Decorating Your Home with Fall Decor from Here Today Stores

By Guest Blogger Melissa from Sippy Cup Mom

A few months ago, my mom introduced me to a new store that opened up in Fenton, Missouri. It was called Here Today and it was full of amazing merchandise at affordable prices. The reason it’s called Here Today? Because you never know if it will be there tomorrow when you come back! You can tell that the Here Today Stores have an incredible buying team because I wanted to come home with EVERYTHING – especially the fall decor you see as you walk in! Fall is my favorite season and we actually don’t have too many decorations for our house. My son has actually been begging to decorate the house for Halloween and I’ve been wanting to do it for Fall, so we headed to Here Today to see what we could find with only a $50 gift card to help us!

Celebrate And Save On Halloween And Fall Decor At Here Today!

By Guest Blogger Carrie from Curly Crafty Mom

Recently a new discount store opened up just miles from my house in Arnold, Missouri! I was so excited when they contacted me to do a little shopping in their store, especially when it is October and there are so many adorable fall and Halloween items in their store. The name of the store is ‘Here Today‘, because a lot of their items may be in the store today, but could be gone tomorrow! That is why you want to stop in often, they are always updating and changing their merchandise. They also have several other locations in the St. Louis area, such as Fenton (Gravois Bluffs), Lake St. Louis, Florissant and even Fairview Heights, IL. They are planning to open another store in Shrewsberry soon.

Today I’ll be sharing my first shopping experience in the store, what I found, purchased and how those items look in my very own home. I will also be sharing a couple more shopping trips in the next two months and will even be having a giveaway for a gift card in December’s post… so, be sure to follow along!

FALL in Love with New Fashions!

By Guest Blogger Danielle Berry – Here Today Buyer
I love fall. It’s such a wonderful season. The weather begins to cool down; the look in the sky changes ever so slightly; the leaves begin to slowly lose their green – all indications that a superb time of year is upon us.

Fall is here people! Time to go to the kids soccer games without sweating your make up off! Time to turn the air conditioner off and open up the windows! Time to enjoy crisp, cool breezes as you check out the various local fall festivals! Time to cozy up with your favorite pumpkin flavored item – mine happens to be pumpkin beer, YUM! But more importantly-time for Fall Fashion! Pardon me for a moment…WHOOOO-HOOOO! Ok, I feel better.

I LOVE fall and everything about it, but fall fashions hold a special place in my fashionista heart! The fabrics used this time of year are so comforting and just begged to be cuddled. The fall color palette reflects the change of colors in nature and warms me up. I love that I can add a few layers, like a great jacket and scarf, and completely change a look. There …

Every Kid Needs a Mobile Homework Command Station

By Guest Blogger Denise from STL Motherhood

You’d think that after so many years of battling homework I’d have learned my lesson. You know that 24 pack of pencils I bought–the one that was going to last an academic life time? We can’t find it. I’m thinking the Borrowers took them to build bunk beds or something. Do you remember the Borrowers? You must have read their books in fourth grade…you know, those tiny little people who live in your attic and pilfer your belongings?

Anyway, it seems like any time my kid gets ready to do his homework he can’t find a pencil. Or extra paper. Or a ruler. Our leftover school supplies got mixed up with the craft goodies and went on a world tour around the house. Oh, I’ve got 5000 stubby crayons and 14 rolls of tape…but a stapler? Er…I think I saw one under the computer desk last week??

Enough is enough! It’s time to set up a Homework Mobile Command Station

Experts say you should set up a quiet corner of your child’s room for studying, then stock it with fresh pencils, paper and whatever age appropriate supplies your child needs. However, the

Celebrating July 4th with Beer and Bubbles

By Guest Blogger Dana from ChocolateandSunshine.com
 
I love the Fourth of July!   The day marked my grandmother’s birthday and I have many fond memories of celebrating it with aunts, uncles and cousins at my Uncle Mike and Aunt Marilynn’s pool.  We enjoy an incredible barbecue.  The kids either dive into the pool or hang out in the front yard lighting firecrackers.  I remember having fun as a child lighting up the little “snake” fireworks on a brick.  I was just so very daring.  Later, we scatter for firework displays closer to our own homes and attempt to stay cool.  My favorite July 4th week-end was many years ago when I went into the hospital early on the Monday morning after enjoying these celebrations.  I didn’t mind this particular hospital stay as I delivered my son, Max.  It seems like yesterday.  Happy Birthday, Max!  So, today, I’m, of course, sharing a fun take on celebrating July 4th.

My friends at Here Today, which have 3 local St. Louis-area locations, including Fenton, Florissant and Fairview Heights, Illinois, asked if I’d share some ideas on using their deeply discounted items for your own patriotic party planning. I always have so much fun …

Last Minute Father’s Day Gifts

By Guest Blogger Denise from STLMotherhood
 
Father’s Day is one of those tough holiday’s to shop for. The dads in my life just get what the need when they need it, and they’re not much for pampering. It’s not like we can just get a bottle of cologne and call it a day for the men in my life. (sigh) So Mitch and I dropped by Here Today to see if we could find anything interesting (but within budget). Maybe the perfect gift was just waiting for us…

Alright, I’m going to be honest…when I dropped by Here Today I expected to walk out with some tools, or maybe a gift basket of craft beer and snacks for my husband. What I was NOT expecting was a bargain bonanza in electronics. But that’s the awesome thing about Here Today. They are constantly–and I mean constantly–switching up the inventory and finding new deals and sweet merchandise for us. When they say that shopping at Here Today is like treasure hunt, they aren’t kidding. We were impressed. First up was this 40 inch big screen TV for just $199.99. In camo! This would be an awesome addition to any dad’s man …

Summer Celebrations with Red, White & Blue!

By Guest Blogger Dana from chocolateandsunshine.com
Hi. I know that Mother’s Day is barely past and I am already planning another holiday, but don’t we all enjoy the thought of an excuse for a day off of work and a reason to have a celebration? Today, I’m sharing my thoughts on bringing in the red, white and blue into your summer party, whether for Memorial Day, Independence Day or Labor Day. I don’t have a specific event planned but I have a mood and feel I’d like to create for upcoming summer parties. I’d like an old-fashioned, country-style, rustic barbecue set up on my deck. Let’s go shopping!

Here are my finds from Here Today for my summer party:

• Paper Goods! I bought red paper plates and napkins for next to nothing.

• A few really cool paper lanterns for décor. I picked up 5 white and 4 red units to hang from my deck’s pergola. Clearance items!

• I love the Game On department as it is filled with Cardinals and Rams gear. I bought paper cups with the Cardinals logo on them.

• I came across my perfect cooler, a festive metal container. I prefer setting up …

Spa Updates for Your Bathroom for Under $50

By Guest Blogger Dana  from chocolateandsunshine.com
First, let me tell you what I discovered about Here Today as this was my first visit and definitely not my last! They are very contemporary, fun, boutique-style shops with a very quirky mix of merchandise.

While at Here Today, I decided upon a spa-like retreat with a springtime refresh for my bathroom.  I prefer classic pieces that are timeless and would, of course, be comfortable and pretty. I’m focusing on the small updates that any of us can complete to breathe some new life into a tired-looking space. Someday soon, it will be updated with new vanities, tile, and shower doors, but until then, a $50.00 fix will have to do.

Here are my finds from Here Today:

  • A sweet wall clock ended up in my cart for the very low cost of $9.99. I’m a huge fan of vintage or vintage-like items and this clock is perfect.
  • I came upon a stack of incredibly soft, white foam bath mats, which is now in front of the shower doors in my bathroom.
  • A $2.99 bamboo mat also made it into my cart.  Spa-like?  Yes. I added the bamboo bath mat in front of

We get to go places that we never seem to have time for during the school year, like the Zoo and the Magic House. And I’m sure there will be laser tag, go carts and piles of crafts to make.
