Help Accessorize their lives and Fill those Stockings with Twisty Petz !

Yes, this is definitely a holiday post. I know what you're thinking and I too love the holidays that come before Christmas.

Halloween DIY: Thrift Store Slappy The Dummy Costume! #GooseBumpsMovie2

We created this post in collaboration with Sony Animations. All opinions are our own!

Thrift Store shopping is my new found excitement. There's something about finding a gorgeous piece to match your daily life in sometimes NEW condition. For many people, the idea of shopping for someone else "trash" gives them the ultimate Goosebumps and that gave me an idea... Why not create a costume using some Thrift Store finds? In Honor of the film that is coming out THIS FRIDAY, Oct. 12th, why not recreate a more feminine version of Slappy The Dummy?

Jakks Pacific wanted us to really get into the different actions of the film so it was VERY exciting to open up a 26lb box of superhero awesomeness!

INVITATION: It's about time for Business Card Upgrades with Basic Invite

So first and foremost, I'm inviting you to join me in upgrading our dreaded, old business cards that we all know we are still using just because we have about 500 left.

Same goes for logo changes and even contact information edit. Though I've always stuck to traditional card purchases, I decided to try a new site to see how I would like their material, colors, packaging, etc. and Basic Invite did NOT disappoint!

I Couldn't Find His Grave...

The Title of this post is a little bit frightening, but it's my truth. My father passed away 16 years ago (This October) and it still hurts as if it happened yesterday. I was 11 years old and though I knew what was going on, my childish mind refused to fully understand it. I was a very furious 11-year-old girl and for these reasons:

Reasons Why NY529 Allows Me to Give my Child the Greatest Experiences... Stress-Free

Back in 2016, I attended a little seminar about NY's 529 College Savings Program and I heard these words from a speaker that has since stuck with me... She said, "$1 Saved is way less expensive than a $1 borrowed from a loan because it'll cost you that $1 plus interest to pay it back!" This was it. The truth. I watched my mother and sister struggle a bit with student loans before I had reached college, so I vowed to NEVER take out a Loan. The NY529 account that my mother had set up for me truly helped a lot and though my education has not been completed, I can relax with knowing I don't owe anyone a dime. Let me get a little more in-depth as to why NY's 529 College Savings Program allows me to give my child the most amazing experiences without worrying about her educational future.

Fashion Kids Spotlight: You See, It's Kid City Out There!

We were provided with a Voucher to purchase clothing in order to Facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% our own.

It's now the season for travel. It's also the time in which fashion changes from Long sleeves and pants to short sleeves and light skirts. We will be traveling to the Dominican Republic soon and I like to get us things that we will have exclusively to wear out there while brand new. Did I just confuse you a bit? What I mean is that I buy a few items for the travel and immediately pack it, then it doesn't get used until we travel. Kid City Stores had everything I needed for our trip and I was even able to grab some Bonus School Items for our New Kindergarten adventure coming August 20th... Enough of that, Here's our latest Fashion Haul.

This post was created in partnership with NSI International. All opinions are our own.

Yes, You read my title correctly. It may give some of you a queasy feeling, but others may genuinely want to know what the heck I'm talking about. In today's society, people love popping pimples and zits. There's a calming and addictive effect of this trend and it's growing as we speak! (The Trend, not the pimples .... or both?) Did you know that popping pimples actually relieves stress? I guess this is why companies have started to create similarly disgusting, yet satisfying toys like this one... Zits (EWWW!)

Our latest trip to Orlando was really a sport all on its own. I made sure to really plan our days accordingly so that we would have time to do almost EVERYTHING we wanted to do out there. We got in pretty late on a Monday so planning anything aside from a bite to eat was a waste of time. The next day was activity day and the first thing on our list was a visit to Crayola Experience in Orlando. Here are my top 3 reasons why visiting the Crayola Experience in Orlando is a MUST...

Happy New Year, Everyone! I've been MIA mostly because I've been too busy working, super tired, and planning a mini long needed vacation. My daughter is a January baby and just turned 5! She LOVES parties so I had to celebrate some way. I asked her what her theme should be and she immediately said "Creative Galaxy"...
