Halloween Stripes and Minnie Ears

I love these Ears To You Bowtique Halloween Striped Minnie Ears!  They match perfectly with my new raglan tee from Target's kid section!



These ears would also be perfect for a Beetlejuice inspired outfit to wear on Halloween or to a Universal Studios theme park!

Halloween Disney Outfits

To celebrate Halloween this year, I am planning to take my husband and his friend to Disney for a Not So Scary roller-coaster and eating extravaganza.

To save money, you can purchase adorable and affordable printable decals from the Etsy shop, Ideas With Love.  After purchasing, just print the images on iron-on printer paper like this one from Amazon.  All you need is a plain t-shirt, iron, and a flat surface to create unique shirts for upcoming family or friends trips!

Here is my outfit idea for our trip:

Spring Favorites

Spring is my favorite season and I am very happy to share some of my favorites with you!  This season I have enjoyed bright colors and comforting smells.  I do not have a lot of favorite products because I have been swamped with school and I have not been able to try a lot of new things.  However, here is what I have been loving this spring.

Makeup: 


During Black Friday, I purchased a collection of Tarte deluxe samples and I have been loving them.  This spring I have been using my Amazonian Clay blush in the color Magic.  It is perfect for a light peach glow that reminds me of sun-kissed cheeks.  This blush is easily build-able so it took me a few tries to perfect its application!

Skincare: 



I am always happy when something from my Birchbox makes it into my season favorites because I feel like I am getting my money's worth!  This spring I have been obsessed with my Whish coconut shaving cream.  It is super creamy and makes my skin feel amazing.  Plus, every time I use it, I feel like I am on a tropical vacation.

Clothing: 



I had been ecstatic about the Lilly Pulitzer and Target collaboration since its announcement.  Days before the release, I planned everything I wanted to purchase and prepared my game plan.  However, when the morning arrived, I was unable to purchase anything I wanted.  Distraught, I logged onto eBay to see what the prices looked like.  Not even two hours after the line's release, eBay was packed with Lilly for Target at twice or triple the price.  I searched eBay for regular Lilly items to compare the price and managed to score this shift for only $30!  I love the shape, fit, pattern, and colors.  These pictures do not do this dress justice!

Movie:



Cinderella is a magical experience of love, color, and fashion.  I have seen the movie twice in theaters, once in IMAX on opening weekend.  To see more about my experience at Cinderella, check out this post.  


Book:


Something A Little Different by Sandy Hall is an adorable love story told through the eyes of various characters.  I loved her writing style and character development.  Also, can we just talk about how gorgeous this cover is?!  There is no better time to read about a blooming young love than in the spring.

Lush:

During my last Lush trip, I picked up the limited edition Bunch of Carrots Reusable Bubble Bar from their 2015 Easter line.  I was not expecting to fall in love with this product as much as I have!  The carrots turn the water a light orange and the bubbles are slightly yellow.  The smell is amazing and I wish I could describe it for you.  Each carrot produces about 2-3 baths and there are 3 carrots per bunch

End of the Year Teacher Gift Ideas

Its that time of year again.  When school is almost out and summer is so close that you can taste it.  What what do you give to the person that has helped you or your child all year?  Here are a few ideas for the perfect end of the year teacher gifts!  These gift are more female centered because I am a female.


Teacher Gifts

1. Nail Polish 

Nail polish is a thoughtful gift for a feminine teacher.  Jazz it up by adding a nail file, nail stickers, or even a spa gift card to the present. 

2. Tumbler 

Teachers can never drink enough water and most have plenty of coffee mugs.  This year, surprise her with a large tumbler like this one from Lilly Pulitzer.  Add to the summer/beach theme by including a towel and sunscreen. 

3. Small Purse

Most teachers have more than enough tote bags so help them keep their items organized with a small wristlet or crossbody.  Vera Bradley has tons of options and you can usually find great items on sale.  If you want something more, think about sneaking a tube of lipgloss or a Visa gift card inside. 

4. Spa Collection

Bath and Body Works makes amazing products and they usually have several premade gift baskets in store.  This is great for teachers who are difficult to shop for or if you are running behind.  I am completely in love with their new peach scent which is perfect for summer! 

5. Monogram Bracelet 

Looking for something more personal?  Consider a bracelet or necklace with your teacher's initial.  Alex and Ani's have been extremely popular lately and are simple enough to wear at work. 

6. Picture Frame 

Even though a picture frame might seem dull, it can be a wonderful gift for a teacher.  If you have a photo of them with you or your child, add it to the frame before presenting it to her or him.  If this seems too simple, place it in a basket with other classroom decor items like a succulent plant, a pen holder, and some Post-It notes. 

What will you be giving your teacher this year?
