Did I miss a sale? Let me know in the comments!
This post is sponsored by Pro Plan SAVOR Shredded Blendand the BlogPaws Professional Pet Blogger Network. I am being compensated for helping enrich the lives of dogs, but Reviews by Cole only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. ProPlan SAVOR Shredded Blendis not responsible for the content of this article.
I know, I know, I’m owned by cats. So what’s up with this post about dog food? Are my cats glaring at me for even typing that three-letter word? Actually, Phantom is chasing the chair and Goliath is sleeping next to the heater. They certainly don’t care!
But I do, which is exactly why I’m writing to let my readers know about some new dog food options from Purina. This post coincidentally follows on the heels of me having the opportunity to try a sample of the cat version of this food, so it couldn’t be more timely!
Purina Pro Plan® SAVOR® Shredded Blend for dogs is a dry food, but it has both tender pieces of meat and dry kibble to provide nutrition for your pup. Right now, it’s available in flavors such as chicken, beef, lamb or salmon. And those meats are always the #1 ingredient in these blends. The unique texture almost looks more like treats than it does dry kibble (which actually makes it perfect to drop a few kibbles into foraging toys!). But your animals will love the difference!
I can tell you that my two kitties, Phantom and Goliath, give the chicken and rice blend for cats two paws up. I received a sample a couple weeks ago, and Phantom was so eager to get to it (it must have smelled good!) that he tore through the shipping box and bag. He’s a particularly crafty kitty, so hopefully you won’t have an issue with it!
But I think it goes to show that our pets want and need the nutrition that comes with real meal as the main ingredient in Purina Pro Plan SAVOR Shredded Blend. They certainly know it on some level. And Purina Pro Plan SAVOR Shredded Blend offers this for consumers who are conscientious about what they feed their dogs and cats, as I am.
I spend enough time with my boys and talk about the enough to be the butt end of a few crazy cat lady jokes. But at the end of the day, I want them to be healthy and live as long as possible, especially because I’ve seen negative side effects of low-quality food on pets who have been close to my heart.Pet foods with a lot of fillers have unwanted side effects such as weight gain, larger and smellier poos. And their coats may be dull and skin more flakey. I’ve switched between brands of cat food in the past and almost immediately seen the difference in my cat’s fur and skin. It’s worth giving Purina Pro Plan SAVOR Shredded blend a try to see if it can help your cat or dog, even if you think your current food is “good enough.”
Aside from the dry food, Purina Pro Plan SAVOR Shredded blend comes in treats and wet foods to offer the same benefits to your pet. I bet even the pickiest of pets wouldn’t turn up their noses at Purina Pro Plan SAVOR Shredded blend.
Alterre does things in a pretty unique way, however. You get to choose the base of your heel — either open or closed toe in blush, grey or black. Then, you can choose your strap. Not only are there different colors available, but Alterre offers different styles and textures.
You get to mix and match, too, so one pair of shoes can be three different looks. A stud locks your strap into place when you want it, but it’s easy to switch them out. You can watch the video below to see how it all works.
I think the whole system is pretty ingenious. I really like the closed-toe black base. And there are a variety of straps I would try out, including the black suede options and the Tilda strap, which reminds me a bit of an Oxford shoe.
If you’re interested in trying out this system, you can get your own starter set directly from Alterre for $180. Additional straps cost either $45 or $49.50. However, you can also win your very own Alterre starter kit worth $180, just like the one to the right.
This includes the black suede heels two with straps: mist grey Jackies and evening sky Marilyns. These’s even a handy carry bag to keep your straps in.
All you need to do is sign in to the Promo Simple widget below. Follow the prompts to get in your entries.
Giveaway ends December 16th.
I received no compensation in exchange for this post. Alterre is responsible for winner notification and delivery.

Can you believe there’s only a hair over 30 days until the new year?! Which means we’ve got weeks, nay days, to get holiday shopping in. Whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah, you’re running out of time to shop for the people who might be on your list — or just to pick yourself of something special.
It always seems like there’s two types of people when it comes to shopping: for those who have a list and are probably done with shopping already and those who don’t know what they’re buying for whom.. and may not have started at all. I fall into the latter camp.
When you’re shopping for someone who is difficult to find the perfect gift, it might be even harder when you start late. You know those cheap shaving sets just won’t cut it. Speaking off cutting..
1. Spartan Blades
Spartan knives are a must-have for those hard-to-shop-for men! These American-made knives come in a variety of styles, but they’re designed to be as tough as, well, Spartans! Whether he’s an avid hunter or likes to trek through the wild, there’s a Spartan blade for him.
For someone who has no need of a bleed or maybe needs more than just a blade, I would definitely recommend a multi-tool. Modern multitools look a lot more sleek than your typical Swiss Army Knife, too. You can get them credit card sized, attached to a keyring or shaped like animals. They open your bottles, fix your glasses, cut strings off your jacket and pretty much everything else you could need done.
3. Wooden Watches
The next gift for him you might add to your shopping list is a wood watch. Jord Watches is one company that comes to mind because I’ve worked with them in the past and they seem fantastic. But they’re just one of several creating unique watches. And if you know a man who still wears his watch rather than simply checking his phone, he’s probably an individual.
4. Ratcheting Belts
Another way to look stylish is with a self-tightening belt. I had no idea this was a thing, but it’s awesome! Most of them use ratchet technology rather than holes, so they’ll always fit and can be adjusted if he gains or loses weight. There are a few different brands to choose from, and each offers different styles and functions.
- Grip6 has a really sleek aluminum belt buckle and will soon come in women’s sizes.
- Arcade Belts are a bit more rugged, but they’re weather proof and stretchy. I also love how many colors they come in!
- SlideBelts function similarly, but they’re available in various leather options.
Although this next idea for a man’s Christmas gift isn’t necessarily pretty, it sure is functional! The Automatic vehicle app and adapter connects to a car via the standard diagnostics port to provide any car owner with information about their car’s alerts. It can help you save money, preserve the life of a vehicle and even find recommended mechanics in the area.
5. Keysmart Key Holders
Next up is Keysmart, a clever way to store the majority of your keys without tangling, noise or using much space. If I didn’t like my Rocket Raccoon keychain so much, it’s something I’d consider for myself!
6. Light Stax
Finally, we’ve got something a little fun.. for the child in all of us! It’s Light Stax, the building blocks that light up. Sure, they might be toys but they cast light, so that’s functional, too. Right? Right? They’ll work with all your Legos so your man can play with the little ones, and they seem like a great way to relax!
Of course, now’s not the time to relax! There’s only a month or so until Christmas! Time to get shopping.

Oh Torrid, how I love these. Cute tops. Pretty dresses. Badass jackets. All that Her Universe stuff. It’s pulling at my heartstrings.
Alas, your prices are so high. Now, some would argue never to pay full price. Believe me, I don’t! Even with a coupon, so many of your prices just aren’t going to cut it for a budget shopper.
I’m not just any shopper, though. I’m pretty Internet savvy. I’ll take what you have and find something just as awesome elsewhere, when I can, and for cheaper by far!
I don’t know if others are quite so savvy, however, so I’ve come up with some places where shoppers can find Torrid “copycat” styles for a fraction of Torrid’s prices!
Now, this store doesn’t have quite as many plus options available in store, but there’s an entire section online. Most items are available up to 3x for 50% or less than the price of similar items at Torrid!
- If you like Torrid’s Plaid Camp Shirt ($48.50) try Rue 21’s Buffalo Check Flannel Top ($23.99)
- The Tulle Mesh Midi Skirt from Torrid costs $64.50, get the Tulle Ballerina Skirt ($23.99) from Rue 21 instead.
- Spend $98.50 on the Faux Leather Bomber Jacket from Torrid or save some cash when you spend $39.99 on Rue 21’s Fleece Lined Bomber.
- A simple grey peacoat costs $88.50 from Torrid, and you can get your hands on the similar style for just $32.99.
- Speckled hi-lo tee is $38.50 from Torrid, but Rue21 has more color options and lace in their hi-lo top for $14.99.
- Torrid’s Plaid Ruana Wrap is essentially a scarf for $48.50! Get actual armholes with the Check Fringed Wrap from Rue 21, just $21.99.
I was definitely sad to hear Debs was going bankrupt and closing all stores. It happened in just a few weeks, too. I stocked up during the great sale, but the lack was definitely something I noticed. Since September, however, Deb is back online. At least, there’s a website. It still has a great plus size section, too. It looks like they’re adding more stock, but you can still save a lot of money when you buy from Debs rather than Torrid.
- The Lace Babydoll Bustier Top looks great with black lace overlay against red but why spend $42.50 when you can get the RED FLORAL CROCHET HIGH NECK TOP for $27.95.
- One of Torrid’s new items is the Rebel Wilson for Torrid Faux Leather Midi Skirt for $58.50. But Deb Shops has the LEATHERETTE POCKET MIDI SKIRT for just $29.95.
- The Drape Front Jacket with Leather Sleeves ($68.50) from Torrid is almost identical to the Leather Sleeve Blazer for $34.95.
This is the shortest comparison on the list. I like Vanity, but they don’t have extended plus sizes. They do have tops up to 2x, though, so there’s a little overlap with Torrid. Vanity also tends to have a younger style overall.
However, Vanity is also a great place to get basics, especially tanks and tees for layering.
- The Knit Raglan Swing Tee is pretty basic, so why does Torrid charge $38.50? Get the Crochet Space-Dye Basic for $19.95. Plus, it has lace details!
- Torrid only has the Lace Trim Cami Tank in black and white for $38.50 each, but you can get Vanity’s Eyelash Trim Basic in five colors!
Plus, both stores carry a line of plus-sized active wear. Maurice’s is also one of the stores that carries shoes and boots. You’ll find most of their wide widths online, though.
- Torrid wants $58.50 for the Spacedye Zip Hoodie, and you can guy a similar active jacket from Maurice’s for $44.
- Torrid’s Colorblock Legging Pants will turn heads with their bright pink for $54.50, but you only have to spend $34 at Maurice’s for legging with ruched bottoms.
- Unless you get the Multi Strap Gore Tall Boots on sale, you’re paying $69.50. The Winnie wide calf riding boot in brown from Maurices is only $59, and there’s an extra wide calf version!
- You’re out $19.50 for the Studded Gemstone Jean Belt at Torrid. Maurice’s option, the rhinestone embellished faux leather belt, is $16.
- Love the Lace Trim Textured Pencil Skirt but don’t wanna spend $48.50 on it? Can’t blame ya! Spend only $39 on the Textured Pencil Skirt with Crochet.
- While not exactly dupes for Torrid’s Striped Marled Open Front Cardigan, both the striped cardigan with metallic shimmer ($44) and marled cardigan with patterned stripes ($39) are super cute!
With designs that are always on trend and budget-friendly prices, Forever 21 is a store I knew I had to add to this list. Forever 21, unfortunately, has a tiny plus size selection in their physical stores, but you’ll find thousands of items online! This includes active wear, sleepwear and wide width shoes!
- Torrid’s Mini Solid Wedges are $46.50 and low rated to boot! Forever 21 has slashed the price to $24.90 for faux suede wedges in black and red.
- Get fit and look great in mesh legging ($54.50 at Torrid) or get smart when you spend $27.90 on identical leggings at Forever 21.
- Can you tell the difference between the Metallic Crinkle Midi Skirt ($44.50, Torrid) and the Metallic-Flecked Pencil Skirt, which only costs $19.90? Me neither!
- Torrid’s Faux Leather Colorblock Skirt is black and grey, but Forever 21 has a black and white Contrast Asymmetrical Skirt for only $19.90!
- Finally, Torrid has a striped midi skirt for almost $40, and Forever 21 offers a similar striped pencil skirt style for a mere $14.90.
- All of Torrid’s moto jackets are $98.50, and they’re not even real leather! Forever 21 gives them a run for their money with this moto jacket. I also love their Peplum Moto Jacket, also $34.90.
You’ll notice I didn’t mention jeans in this post. Both Maurice’s and Vanity has their own line of jeans. I am partial to Vanity jeans myself and love shorts from Rue 21 (but am just a tad short for their jeans). I also didn’t want to list department stores, which means there’s even more options.
Plus, you can sometimes find overlap in items between Torrid and Hot Topic. Hot Topic will almost always be cheaper! Weird!
I don’t post this because I dislike Torrid, quite the contrary. I own a few Torrid tops, a couple leggings, a bra and a dress. There’s some great exclusive collections, too. But more often than not, the things they offer are pretty basic and can easily be found if you look hard enough.
None of these prices reflect current promotions or coupons from Torrid or any of the other stores. You can frequently find coupons in the range of 20% to 40% off from Torrid, and there’s always a coupon from Vanity.
