Our family hit up our local Spirit Halloween shop last weekend.  In search of costumes for my boys, it wasn't long before I found myself in the adult section looking at goodies for me. I frozen at the end cap that held a huge amount of Doctor Who costume ideas!  I've recently gotten into the show thanks to my Netflix streaming addition and am … [Read more...]

It's been awhile since my last Stitch Fix box.  In fact, it was July that I posted about Stitch Fix Box #3.  So far all of my boxes have been pretty decent; I have yet to keep an entire's box worth but always get a couple of pieces out of each shipment.  In fact, that Maxi Dress in box #3 ended up being a staple dress I wore a ton the rest of the … [Read more...]

Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 7.16.05 PM

Is anyone out there playing the new Skylanders Trap Team yet?  It came out last week and I feel like I haven't been hearing as much buzz as I have in the past. We have yet to dive in.  My youngest (and the Skylanders guru in the house) turns 8 in early November so we always hold out  for his birthday to open up the latest version of the game. … [Read more...]

Last month, I posted about Cricket Magazine.  They had sent me some samples and receiving them really took me back!  I definitely have memories of flipping through Cricket when I was a kid in doctor's waiting rooms.

20 Ideas for Non-Candy Halloween Goodies

noncandy

This 50 Non-Candy Easter Basket Items post did well back in April so I thought I'd re-visit the concept for Halloween.  These days everyone seems to have some sort of restriction - gluten-free, allergies or whatever reason they may have for not eating candy.  And honestly, we don't have any restrictions but my boys get so much candy in their … [Read more...]

For the second week in a row, I'm featuring J. Jill clothes in Fashion Friday.  It just so happened that I'm doing two separate campaigns with them and they fell within a week!  Which was all sorts of fun because I got to style myself not once, but twice in some of their new fall looks.  So you get to hear about it again but I have some new pieces … [Read more...]
