12 Months of Goals - March

12MonthsofGoals
Last year I set 3 goals every month for myself and I accomplished a lot! This year, I wanted to down play it even more and just set ONE goal for myself. However, with just one goal each month I hope to devote more time to it. You can find an update on February's Goal below.

Princess Smart Mirror {My Knight and Me}

PrincessSmartMirror_650I’m so excited to tell you about the adventure-packed new medieval animated series for kids from TeamTO, My Knight and Me! I'm also sharing a craft that you can work on with your little Princess- a Princess Smart Mirror! This mirror isn't really 'smart', but it is sparkly, wrapped in ribbons and even monogrammed with your favorite princesses initial! In the cartoon My Knight and Me they do have a smart mirror and this mirror will prompt your child with plenty of imaginative play! This show is currently airing on the Cartoon Network weekdays at 12 p.m.

St. Patrick's Day Themed Breakfast & Scavenger Hunt

Hero_650
Every year I surprise my kids with a St. Patrick's Day Breakfast AND Scavenger Hunt! How did this start you may ask? Well, I have a little troll doll that has a St. Patrick's Day outfit and we've come to call him Leprechaun Nickel. Every year, he is the one that brings the sugary breakfast goodies and clues for the hunt! 

One year my daughter even lost him at the City Museum in St. Louis and I had to quickly order another one on Amazon Prime! ;) I want to thank Oriental Trading for supplying the party favors AND scavenger hunt prizes! Yay!

Simple Coffee Filter Wreath DIY {12 Months of Wreaths}

CoffeeFilterWreath_650
Welcome back to 12 Months of Wreaths!

Hi everyone! Welcome back to our second month of 12 Months of Wreaths! This month, I wanted to work on a wreath that I could hang on our new cathedral mirror that is above our console table. I wanted something neutral and clean... I decided a coffee filter wreath would be perfect! These wreaths have been done many times, but this is the first one I've made and I'll be sharing the instructions below.

My First Ulta Experience & Haul!

UltaMain1
couple of weeks ago, I went to Ulta for the FIRST time. I know, CRAZY... I had never been in one of their stores, even though I'm always hearing friends/blogging friends, etc. rave about Ulta. I had a few items in mind that I wanted, so I thought I'd check the store out. The only item I didn't find that I thought Ulta carried was Bumble and Bumble hair products, but maybe that particular store just didn't carry them. Today I am sharing the items I found and my thoughts on them. And, as a BONUS... I am sharing two beauty products I am addicted to right now that I didn't find at Ulta. So, read all the way to the bottom to find out about those goodies.

Happy Thursday! Today I'm styling a plaid dress with pops of red and my new Classic Gold LORD Timepiece! Since this plaid dress has a hint of red in it, I wanted to pull more of the vibrant color out by adding some red accessories (and a red lippy!). This dress is really a midi length, but I wore a blazer buttoned at the bottom and you can't even tell that I raised up the dress a bit in the middle to give the skirt a shorter length for a different look. 

The Classic Gold LORD Timepiece goes great with this outfit with it's clean and classic look. I also love the thin face and gold adjustable ban. The ban fits me perfectly and I have thin wrists! LORD Timepieces is based out of London and offers women's watches in clean and affordable styles. You can also find watches for the special man in your life (and what a perfect gift for Valentine's Day!).

What I'm Wearing:

Blazer - Banana Republic (Old) (Similar, Similar)*
Plaid Dress - Make Me Chic (SheIn online store)
Red Flats - Rhea Footwear
Red Cross Body Bag - Kate Spade


And, just to share with you another way I styled the dress as a 'midi length' (or at least below the knee) and without the blazer:

So, as you can see this dress is quite versatile!

12 Months of Goals - February & A Fruity Valentine's Surprise!

Last year I set 3 goals every month for myself and I accomplished a lot! This year, I wanted to down play it even more and just set ONE goal for myself. However, with just one goal each month I hope to devote more time to it.

I did a little recap on January's Goal below, BUT if you visited the blog yesterday you saw that I did indeed get the IKEA Shelves decorated! It was a lot of work, so I thought instead of doing a home decor or improvement project this month (because I need a little break!) I'd do something I've been wanting to do awhile and that won't take as much time. 

Drumroll.

In February I want to learn more about my Apple Watch!

iWatch1_650 Brian purchased an Apple Watch for me for my birthday last August and I just LOVE it! There are so many neat features on it, but yet there is SO much more that I haven't even figured out. I would love to take some time out this month to get to know my watch better. I would also love to share a post in February about what I've learned. And, if you are on the fence about getting an Apple Watch... OH my gosh! Just get it! You can thank me later. ;)


I also wanted to share a little Valentine's Day Surprise today!

Untitled
Welch's sent me such a fun box in the mail. I seriously was so excited when I opened it and saw Welch's Fruit Snacks, heart doilies, ribbon, stickers, glitter glue, etc.


Welch2
I wanted to share what my daughter and I came up with when we did a little crafting! Welch's Fruit Snacks make perfect Valentine's for classrooms, get-togethers, etc. I figured we could give these out to some of the kids on our block and add in a few other goodies with the Welch's Fruit Snacks. :)


Welch1The Welch's Fruit Snacks even have  a little area for you to write To: and From: to personalize them! The pieces are heart shaped and imprinted with emojis. The snacks feature fruit as a first ingredient and are perfect for Valentine's Day parties and celebrations.

Ok, and here is my January Goals Recap:

Here is a photo of how it looks now:

And, here are the shelves after I decorated them:
