Everyone loves a Boston girl. This is the story of one Boston girl's adventures in the city, in blogging, and in getting through those crazy 20-something years.

I'm a writer by trade. And by passion. I'm a lover of food, friends, and all things Boston. I listen to music pretty much 24/7 and idolize Martha Stewart. I love my job(s), my life, and this city. Follow me on Twitter! @Susie

whooga. because ugg boots go by more than one name.

Whooga wha? That’s what I said at first. Until I saw this photo:

Oh, Uggs? Well, no Whoogas. Just trust me on this.

Hi, my name is Susie and I have a shoe obsession (Hi, Susie). Thank you. I especially have a thing for boots. Why? Well, winter is boring and cute boots are the perfect way to jazz it up the blah weather. Also? Boots are generally comfy and have the power to keep me warm. Especially ugg boots. You might think they’re not the cutest things in the world, but comfy triumphs cute in my book. And I personally think ugg boots can look cute with the right outfit (read: skinny jeans or leggings and a winter jacket or fleece). But did you know ugg boots are the name of a type of boots and not just an actual brand? And if you told me there was a more comfortable ugg boot that would keep me warmer and be more comfy on my feet? I’d be ALL over that one.

Enter Whooga. I had never heard of UK’s Whooga until the company e-mailed me and told me about their boots (don’t worry, they ship to the U.S.)! And I swooned for lots of reasons. I’ve been wanting a pair of knit ugg-type boots for a while now:

But these are even better. Unlike those other boots, Whoogas are lined with Thermofleece, which will keep your little toes warm in temperatures as low as -30 degrees (they also keep your feet cool in hot temps. if you’re into that). It also circulates more air than “other” ugg boots, self-shapes to your feet, and never smells! Even better? The Thermofleece contains lanlolin, which increases blood circulation and moisturizes. Bonus! And my toes are happy toes.

Also? I don’t know about you, but my other ugg-type boots have ALWAYS ended up like the photo on the right. Yours?


Whooga doesn’t do that. Woot to the Whooga.

So, basically they’re the warmest, most comfortable, and highest quality of all ugg boots. And the fur inside does not wear down. They’re also a bit cheaper, too.

And you could win a pair! If you head to the Whooga website and sign up for their newsletter, you will be entered to win a pair of Whooga boots! But if you already know you want to keep your toes warm this winter, you can use this special discount count made especially for my readers: 1363BOSTON

Now, I’m just hoping and praying that Whooga starts designing the warmest slippers of my dreams! Though I’d even wear these ones as slippers:


I’m pretty excited to learn there’s an alternative to what is thought of as the traditional Ugg boots. And I have a feeling I’ll soon by wearing Whooga boots to keep my toes warm all winter long 🙂 Thank you, boots, for making me love winter a little bit more!

Don’t forget to enter the Whooga giveaway!

(Full disclosure: I was compensated to write about Whooga boots, but all opinions and excitement are my own. I rarely review products for $$ on ELBG and turn down lots of offers, so if I do, it’s because I truly want to!)

    Kudos for posting such a useful weblog. Your blog isn’t only informative and also extremely artistic too. There usually are extremely few people who can write not so easy articles that creatively. Keep up the good work !!
