Been eyeballing so many watercolor art, calligraphy and all so I stopped by the store and picked up a few things. Had to share with you because I know there are many paper lovers out there like me. I have yet to use any of them so I cannot review them yet. But if you have any comments on any of these , please let me know!
I am on Etsy all the time..sometimes too much time is spent there… all good tho! ANYWAYS I saw some really cool and unique idea’s for a fathers day gifts instead of the usual card and neck tie so I thought I would put it together and possibly give you idea’s this year.
CelebriT Tee shirts are full of funny prints, but I thought my husband would actually wear this one! I mean..even if it’s not a “going out tee shirt” it’s a funny pj tee!
Sophia Victora Joy cups can be personalized. Even though you see a name here on this awesome camping mug cup, you can add something else in it’s place like quotes your dad or husband say for a little chuckle every time he reaches out for a cup.
If your man, dad or friend travels a lot then these little personalized toiletry bag would be the perfect gift! And they look really cool. Trust me on this one, if you want a cool little travel bag (especially for a guy) it’s REALLY hard to find one that doesn;t have a weird logo or feel cheap with the material they use. This one is from Sivani Designs.
For the BBQ’r ! He would love that it has his name AND it comes in a box to carry around (beach, camp BBQ’s) There was a variety of fonts to choose from too! Find it at Perfectly Me Vancouver.
And lastly, for the tech savvy father. From Palmetto Wood, this is a shelf for the iPhone, keys, accessories, pens..anything he carries in his pockets etc can go somewhere on here! My friend got one for her husband and he loves it! Simple little shelf helps a lot. I like that.
Good luck finding something for that amazing man in your life! I know this little “holiday” comes ever year but tell him how much he means to you this year.(even if you don’t get hims a gift…words are powerful) My life motto, live everyday like it’s your last. Tell your loved one how much they mean to you. No regrets!!

Summer is right around the corner, and with all the formal events like prom, weddings, graduations, date nights with the husband (that is what I look forward to the most) or even just wanting to put your hair up for a ladies’ brunch, I have come up with three hairstyles that are very easy to do! I added a few makeup favorites that work with the looks, and you can find all the products at your local Target. Or, better yet, buy it online; Target offers free shipping on orders of more than $25 and free returns on every order. Best online store for all Target goodies (I wasn’t even told to say that; it really is a personal favorite! LOL!)
The first look I am going to show you is probably my favorite out of all of them. When I’ve done this hairstyle in the past, I have been asked a handful of times what salon or hairstylist I used. It’s fairly easy and, now that my hair is shoulder-length, it’s fun to do. It mainly combines twists and knots.
Start off by parting your hair right down the middle. I always say second-day hair is the best to style, but freshly washed hair is perfect too.
1. Part your bangs from the top to your ears, and pin your bangs to the side for now.
2. Now part your hair in the back into two parts: top and bottom.
3. I love using the Nexxus Frizz Defy Finishing Mist because it protects from heat and it has a nice hold. Spray onto the bottom half.
4. Using the Nu.Me Curling Wand, take pieces and lightly curl your hair, creating texture.
5. Part the bottom into two parts with a slight twist.
6. Tie your hair like you would any knot!
7. If your hair is long enough, tie it again.
8. Now tuck the ends in and pin away.
9. Do the same with the top half. Spray, heat, twist and tie into a knot, then pin away.
Now for some tips and tricks and the makeup items I used to finish this look. Don’t forget, I have two more hairstyles I want to show you. So keep reading…

Printable Mothers Day Cards
AND if you forget to grab your mom a card, no worries! There are plenty of sites or Etsy stores where you can just print it out yourself.
These are just a couple idea’s. Are you going to give it a try? If you do lemme know!
Being a new mom, even though days are long and tough and sometimes it feels like it never ends…Time does fly. My little one is already 3 months and right now has been the most fun (as of yet!) Month one and two is a lot of the same thing, nurse and sleep. Now we have “wake time” which we actually do things like tummy time, rolling around, stretching, talking and smiling.He started smiling around the later half of month two. Now its every morning! We sing the “Good Morning, Hello How Are You?” song and he smiles so BIG! Makes me forget I barely slept lol
He loves to try to fit his whole wrist in his mouth. Two thumbs at the same time. Yesterday we finally got him some TOYS to put in there and his favorite has been the Elephant KiKi. The tummy time we have has been great. He picked it up pretty quick. Every now and then he will actually try to roll over and do tummy time on his own! (Feel like he will crawl soon) Another new thing are his feet. He loves to raise them up and flex his toes. If you kiss those mini E toes he smiles and sometimes giggles. You can find my husband and I kissing and nibbling on his toes all day long! LOL
He is also a talker. He is most vocal on his back , right before he is about to fall asleep. Or its when he is on his back in his favorite spot, the dressing table. He will start a conversation and have so much to say. Its the cutest thing!!! End of the day too, you start talking to him and he will talk with you. You can tell he wants to talk.
Sitting….he also wants to sit on his own all the time now. Soon…soon he will sit on his own and we can face each other and talk!
