We’re Expanding by FOUR FEET GIVEAWAY!

By on September 30, 2013
Now that we have announced our BIG News! We are excited to have a fun giveaway for all my amazing readers. Erin from Hoping for Our Own Peanut, Kelly from Modern Camelot, Emily from Live a Charmed Life and Jen from Liv, Laugh, Love are helping me out with this giveaway so make sure you check out their blogs as well. They are awesome!
Since we will be expecting two little ones I wanted the theme of this giveaway to be baby related. I asked some of my favorite shops to help us with this giveaway and they were more than generous.

First we are giving away a $25 Gift Card to Target because who doesn’t love Target? It is one of the places we registered so of course it was fitting to give one away.

Next up is League of Letters. League of Letters is probably the best Etsy shops when it comes to wooden monogram letters. I was looking around trying to find some for the babies’ room and all other places were just too expensive and the quality was the same. I read about League of Letters on a fellow bloggers page and couldn’t believe the excellent price and different options.

They are so generously giving away a 18 inch Monogram that you can use for your home. We will be getting two for the girls’ room since we are going with a vintage/shabby chic theme. I can not wait.

Another amazing contributor to the giveaway is Stella Bella Designs. I saw these great nursing covers that also can be worn as infinity scarfs. I thought what a genius idea! First of all you can wear them out and look cute and they cover you comfortably when nursing your little one. If you don’t want to wear it it still fits easily in a diaper bag. It’s a win, win for any new Mom!

Of course a giveaway would not be complete without a little something from The Anchor & Bows Boutique. One winner will get their choice of an item from the boutique!

Dermagist Original Wrinkle Smoothing Cream Review

By on September 29, 2013

As a typical Florida girl I grew up going to the Keys and spending hours and days on our boat. My Mom was religious with the sunscreen but honestly as I got older I was less concerned for it. I did it here and there and if I went to the beach would remember but not till I was older did I use it daily.

 photo Wrinkle_Smoothing_Cream1-300x285_zpsaed9f5c0.jpg

This caused me to have lines on my forehead and those lovely laugh lines by my eyes. My forehead really bugs me. I am just not a fan of how deep the lines are.

I never found a face cream that seemed to really work well until I tried Dermagist Original Wrinkle Smoothing Cream.

This cream is nice and thick without being greasy which is perfect for my skin. I never felt like any other cream compared in thickness. This cream went on and rubbed in nicely and I never felt like I had this huge layer of lotion on my face so it was a perfect combination of thickness yet light on the skin.

Their site says it perfectly…
This is NOT some cover-up or “hide my wrinkle” type of treatment.  It is a deep moisturizing, heavy-nutrition based cream that stimulates your skin cells to act like they did when you were younger.”

You can’t beat that! If you aren’t convinced, try it for yourself, they have a 30 day guarantee so there is no risk! Your face is what everyone sees and its important to keep your skin look great. Here is to a cream that actually works!!

Stick around for a giveaway of this miracle cream.

Throw Back Thursday!

By on September 19, 2013

It’s Throw Back Thursday! I am doing something a little different and going to name my favorite movies from when I was a kid. I mean who doesn’t love a good old movie, amiright?

5. Josie and the Pussycats…My best friend and I saw this in the theater and thought it was complete crap then it kept replaying on Encore years later and I seriously fell in love with the stupidity of this movie. Parker Posey is hilarious and Tara Reid was actually cute in this one. If you hated it the first time definitely try to re-watch it, it’s worth it for the laughs.

4. Fools Rush In… Back in the day when Friends was my life I had a HUGE crush on Matthew Perry and an obsession with Vegas so this movie was made for me. I am sure this movie wasn’t a big hit but I liked it and its a romantic comedy so if you are ever feel like laying on the couch with a big comfy blanket all by your lonesome this movie is a good one to watch.

3. Clueless…Not number 1, what?! I know, I know but trust me this was a tough one. Clueless was my all time favorite movie when I was younger. My sister even dressed like Cher so I basically had my own Cher doll at home. I love how this is a movie you watch years later and actually understand over half the things they are talking about because when it came out I was 11. That was 18 years ago, scary! I can still watch this movie over and over again and never get bored with it.

2. Mean Girls…Another girl movie I can watch over and over and sadly quote. I think this movie would be #1 if my #1 didn’t include Ryan Reynolds. Anyway who doesn’t love Mean Girls? I mean come on, Lindsay Lohan (pre…everything), Tina Fey (hilarious!), Amanda Seyfried (so adorable) and of course who can forget the ever popular Regina George, I mean Rachel McAdams. I can’t even handle how awesome the cast was in this one. The girls were funny and beautiful, how can you go wrong? And am I the only one who feels like it was not almost 10 years ago that this came out? Seriously, it came out 2004, so weird!

GIFSoup
1. Just Friends!!! DING DING DING, we have a winner. Ok so who can blame me for putting a movie Ryan Reynolds is in at number 1? This movie has by far been my all time favorite. When I saw it in the theater, I think it was Thanksgiving, I remember the whole theater laughing non-stop. I mean the relationship between him and his brother in the movie killed it. Anna Farris? A comedy genius! I love her in this movie. My friend Jimmy and I used to sit on the couch at my parents house and quote this movie word for word and drive me Mom nuts (and by nuts I mean make her laugh and say “do you guys seriously know all the words and have to quote them every time you watch this movie?” because we were so weird but whatevs). And apparently when Anna Farris says “my sidekick broke” this reminds quite a few people of me since I had like every sidekick and was scary attached to them.

Monsters Have Mommies Book Giveaway!

By on September 9, 2013

 photo monstershavemommies_zps300237ef.jpg

My son has a new obsession and it is Monsters! We had gotten him two books from the dollar section at Target last year and they have become his absolutely favorites before bedtime. He thinks monsters are so cool.

 photo DSCN2220_zpsd01a285c.jpg

We recently upgraded our monster book collection with the cutest monster book yet! It is Monsters Have Mommies by Angela Muse. First when I saw the cover I got really excited because I knew Ace was going to love it. As I read the book to him he got really into it. It is longer than his other monster books which is an added bonus. It has a really cute pictures of monsters and mommies and it moves on to monsters with their daddies and talks about family as well.

 photo DSCN2222_zps4f55952c.jpg

It also is a great book for early readers. It has a fun rhythm to it, large print and easy words to read.

This is a definitely must for any little one in your life. I love that we got this before Halloween too because it has a bit of a Halloween feel with it being a monster book, which is always fun when you are looking for books to go with the holiday.

* All opinions and thoughts are my own. I was not paid for this review but was offered a free copy of the book in order to review it.

Guest Post: Four Tips For Remodeling On a Budget

By on September 5, 2013

 photo ScreenShot2013-09-05at35350PM_zps370f73f3.pngHome remodeling is a wonderful way to increase the value of your home, but it’s important not to go overboard and spend more than you end up gaining in value. Kitchens and bathrooms are the areas that tend to look dated the fastest, so these are the areas that homeowners are most likely to remodel. Be sure to plan your remodeling project carefully and have a realistic budget before you begin. 
Start Small 
The things that people notice the most in other people’s homes are often the smallest details. Just putting new pulls on your drawers and handles on your cabinets can bring a fresh look to your kitchen or bathroom. The hardware is inexpensive, and most people can change it themselves with little effort. You can install new covers on all your switch plates at the same time to update your rooms in just a few hours. 
Rearrange Your Furniture or Appliances 
Simply rearranging a room can give it a completely different look and feel. It’s difficult to rearrange your kitchen because of the fixtures, but you can give your bedroom, living room or office an entirely different feel by changing the way the furniture is arranged. You may need to store a few things in your garage or outside while you are reorganizing, so pay closer attention to your home security to keep your belongings safe. 
Add Mirrors and Lighting 
One of the biggest complaints that many homeowners have about their homes is the lack of natural light. Adding more windows to your home may be an option, but it is expensive and time consuming. Another option is to add a mirror on the wall opposite every window in your home to reflect the natural light. You can also add more lighting to dark corners and hallways to increase the amount of light in your home. 
Redecorate 
Replacing the decor items in your room with a new theme is another inexpensive way to change the look and feel of your home. Be sure to clear all of your old decor items out before adding new ones so that your spaces don’t end up looking cluttered and disorganized. Recovering your furniture or adding new accent pillows also changes the look of the room. A fresh coat of paint and new window blinds or curtains finish the updated look of any room. Repainting a room has a huge impact on how it looks and paint offers a big bang for your remodeling buck.

I know, I know, I am apologizing again for being super MIA lately. There is a lot going on but I promise I will be more active on here in a month or so but I realized I haven’t shared Ace’s Citrus Lane boxes in awhile.
I have been loving them lately. The past 2 or 3 months they have been really good. I feel like there was a month or two where I was really unhappy with them but they have definitely stepped up their game.

July and August’s were great because they had items that had to do with back to school
In the July one Ace got a bento container that came with stickers so he could decorate it and make it his own. We also loved the Lace and Trace Pets by Melissa and Doug. Those two items alone were enough to make me happy with the box.

The August box it was so full of stuff! First it came with this really awesome coloring book with markers. I love this because it actually has a holder for the markers so we take this along with us when we go out to eat. Each page is a letter and a picture. Very cute.
 photo IMAG0843_zpsa9e32219.jpg
It also came with bunny crackers, Ace’s favorites. A puzzle box, which had 4 different puzzles, Eric Carle bandaids and some sanitizer wipes. All really awesome products. I also came with a coupon for a free outfit from FabKids which is a $35 value. This has got to be one of the best boxes we have gotten so far.

I can not wait to see what September has in store for us!
You can get your first box FREE if you order today before 11:59 PM!
