A Disney Vacation Countdown

October 3, 2016

*This post does contain affiliate links, thank you for your support.

disney-crafts-using-expressions-vinyl-and-enter-to-win-a-disney-vacation-1I’m making a Disney vacation countdown for our trip to Disneyland this coming Summer and my kids can’t wait! This was really easy and even easier for you because you can grab the cut file here and it was so easy using my Cricut Explore.Create your own Disney vacation countdown using a shadow box frame and vinyl.Supplies – 

What you’ll want to do is cut out each shape. Each shape is color coded and ready to go so just load your vinyl into your Cricut Explore and set your smart dial to vinyl. Peel away any extra vinyl and then lay your transfer tape over the top of your image. Create your own Disney vacation countdown using a shadow box frame and vinyl. You will then lay the vinyl on top of the glass and apply in order. Next, remove the backing from your frame – attach and size the scrapbook paper to fit the background of your frame. Attach it using the included pins for a softer background shadow box or just attach with Glue Dots.Create your own Disney vacation countdown using a shadow box frame and vinyl.You’ll want to use your vinyl applicator and get all the bumps out. For any bubbles in your vinyl that won’t go away, use a small needle and poke a hole then press the air out. I didn’t smooth as I went along so I had a bit of an issue. I’m planning on using the buttons and a chalkboard marker or dry erase marker to put my number of days we have left for the trip. We can’t wait for Summer!

Baby Malakai - Giveaway

Bringing Home Baby Giveaway

January 11, 2016

If your new to reading the blogsy, I had a baby 3 months ago and he’s been in the NICU ever since. I’ve had other kids but the style game has changed A LOT in the last five years. I’ve teamed up with some killer shops to giveaway some essentials for the babe when bringing them home. I do own these products and I chose shops that I love and that I know are crutial to looking good together.

To enter, head to my Instagram account and tag some friends, be sure to follow all the accounts, too. Take a screenshot and repost with the hashtag #WelcomeHomeMalakai for another entry. Good luck!

Here are the prizes:

Copper Pearl – Bandana Bibs and a Multi Use Cover

Copper Pearl cover Copper Pearl bibs

Their bibs are seriously the best. So soft and high quality. The best feature is the double button so you can adjust the sizing. The cover, WHOA! Just as soft as the bibs and it fits me. I have a hard time with covers like this because they don’t fit a heavy honey like me, not this one.

Rags to Raches – $50 credit to their shop

RagsYou can’t go wrong here. Rachel also had a preemie so I feel like we’re bonded just in that sense but she also has killer style. You can get hooded ones, short sleeve ones, pink, blue, black, acid wash – whatever your heart desires.

Nena and Co. – Clutch

NenaAndCoAli always makes sure her items are up to her standards. They make such high quality bags, camera straps, clothing, etc. that it’s hard to not to want everything. They’re giving away a clutch to carry all your money, cards and keys so they don’t get lost in the good ole diaper bag.

Freshly Picked – soft sole moccs

FP MoccsI’ve talked about my love of Freshly Picked a lot. There are a lot of knock-offs out there and there is really only one difference, your Freshly Picked moccs will outlast those others 10 to 1. They come in sizes up to 10 and every pair we’ve owned has seen its fair share of brutality and there has never been an incident of holes or loose threads. I really love these shoes.

Tubby Todd – $25 credit to their shop

TubbyToddWho doesn’t want the best possible thing on their baby’s skin? All natural and award winning soaps FTW. I know lots of moms who use this for themselves, too.

Solly Baby – a wrap of your choice

SollyBabyMine came in the mail before I even delivered him. I knew I needed one of these so I could actually get some housework done while catering to his needs. These are super soft and versatile, any good reason to own anything.

Freshly Picked Review

Freshly Picked, Frenchie and a Giveaway

Babes, have you ever in your life been so impressed with someone and what they’ve done with their lives that it’s made you question your path and what you want to be and do? I got the chance to meet Susan at The Pinners Conference in November of 2013 when I started on my Frenchie journey. She changed the way I was thinking about a lot of things. She has such an inspiring story and has a killer vibe for style and for styling children.

Freshly Picked and Frenchie for a Giveaway

I contacted Freshly Picked in April and everyone there was so sweet. They take the time to answer whichever question you may have. Whether that be on Instagram, Facebook or through their website. They have people in their office working but they also have everyday moms helping with their social networks. Susan has perfected the social network game for sure!

Freshly Picked and Frenchie for a Giveaway

FP’s Moccs come in so many fun colors and go up to size Toddler 10. I really thing that they need to have adult sizes but I can only imagine how ridiculous we’d all look with these on our feet. Kids look so cute with them – us, not so much!

Freshly Picked and Frenchie for a Giveaway

The colors are really the hardest part. I want them all! The colors that I chose for Leila girl were Platinum and the Neon Pink. Platinum is perfect cause it goes with anything and everything. You have to have one of those pairs and you have to have a fun pair. These Neon Pink ones are insane. Neon is so in this summer and it’s absolutely unisex.

The other part of these you can tell is the wear. She wears these all day, everyday. In fact, when we first got these, she was so in love with them that she slept in them. She can just do the silliest things and it can be so practical, because the leather on these are some of the softest leather I’ve ever felt. Along with sleeping in them, she destroys them and they take it. She colors on them, rubs her feet in the asphalt, hops around, you name it and she done it. These have still stood the test of time. I love how Kaylynn from Among the Young, showed her daughters foot prints in her FP Moccs so undoubtedly I had to show you Leila’s.
