“You only get in life what you have the courage to ask for.”
– Oprah Winfrey
Sure. And a little good ol’ fashioned stalking never hurt anyone, either. I’m not too proud to admit that I put up a great big spotlight on myself when it came to working with Cougar.
Look at me! I’m LENA! Okay perhaps I should rewind.
Last year, Cougar Boots began popping up on some of my favourite lifestyle and fashion blogs. Tibets, Ravishings (?), Ringo Starrs and Regals – the bloggesses were prancing around, taking photos and showing off complete fashion ferocity. I was left an unsightly shade of green… called envy.
Waaa. Lena wants hot boots too!
So this year, I put one of my fave Word of Mouth’ers (Matchstick) on notice that I.wanted.in. And the funny thing? At first, I wasn’t viewed as a “natural fit.” Mommies aren’t stylish! They don’t care about being on trend! They can’t rock a pair of Cougar Boots!
Thankfully, it took very little arm bending (those who get it, get it – thanks Matchstick!) and I chose a sweet style for all my Winter ’12 adventures – the Mirage boot.

Now I wanted to show y’all that moms can party once a year like a rock star, so what better place to break in my new Cougar Boots than the CBC LIVE party at Blissdom Canada ’11! Here I am tearing up the red carpet…
True story: by the time these photos were taken, I had been wearing the boots for 12 hours. And quite honestly, it felt as though I was walking on a cloud. They are thatcomfortable.Now pay attention market research folks: TWENTY (20) bloggers asked me about my boots that night – either to compliment me on their visible hotness, ask where I got them, or inquire if they are as comfy as they appeared Apparently, if you want to create buzz about your brand, put a hot mommy in even hotter boots and let the chips (sales?) fall where they may.
But to show y’all that the boots can go from fancy soirées to farm life, today I sported my fave style while hauling hay, riding tractors and traversing pumpkin patches at Springridge Farm in Milton, ON. Seriously, I wore Cougar Mirage Boots to a farm? Yup, like I said – they are that comfortable.
Not to be vain, but I did turn a few heads – females – as they sized up my bangin’ boots. Yeah, they’re ridiculously awesome. #justsayin’
(Only one gal had the courage to ask about my boots – when I told her they were cougar, she was pleasantly surprised. I know!)
So let’s all mass exodus to our nearest retailer and get in Cougar Boots this winter. They’re super toasty, funky, and obviously, if you’ve got a red carpet moment and hay ride in your calendar, they’re a no-brainer :)
