Five on Friday

I’m linking up with a.liz adventuresDarciChristina, and Natasha for their 5 on Friday. :

 

This week I’m all about the Jamberry nails, so I decided to show my five favorite combinations.  I’m not a huge fan of all of my nails having a design, so  I like to alternate between solid and a pattern.

1. Daydream and Out of Focus:

2. Haute Pink and Spring Break:

3. Punch Puff and Blue Jeans

4. Almond and Zen Garden

5. Shake Your Tail Feather and Jaded

Thanks for checking out my favorites this week!  If you use Jamberry nail wraps, I’d love to see your favorites.

Thursday Thoughts

 

TTGood-copyI’m again linking up with Jennifer at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for her Thursday Thoughts link-up.

~ Ella made me breakfast in bed yesterday and it was the cutest thing EVER!  She brought me Apple Jacks and orange juice and carried it upstairs on a baking sheet :)

~ Ava has been accepted for full day preschool next year and I’m so excited!  I think her speech will really thrive in that environment.

~ Spring soccer is supposed to be starting in a couple weeks, but there’s still snow on the ground.  I think it’s going to be a muddy mess.

~ We are getting the girls’ Easter pictures taken this weekend with the Easter bunny at the mall and with real bunnies.  They always love posing with the real bunnies, should be a lot of fun.

What’s on your mind this week?

Weekend Wrap Up

~ We’ve had such a busy couple weeks.  Last weekend was a birthday party and St. Patrick’s Day party, then Great Wolf Lodge on Wednesday/Thursday, then Ella had dance and a birthday party for a friend from school on Saturday.  I’m exhausted.

~ Since I gave up teaching Zumba classes, I’ve been looking for something else to do to bring in a little extra money.  But, I don’t want to be out of the house as much as I was before.  This afternoon I took the leap and joined Jamberry as a consultant.

I’ve had some trouble with Jamberry before, but after getting some more tips on how to apply and remove them, I am in love with them again.  I’ve done direct sales before and am really excited to get back into it again.

~ The conversion of Ava’s baby room into a “Big Girl” room is underway.  I think I’m much more excited than she is.

~ There was no cleaning the house or laundry last week, so I had a TON to do today.  It’s amazing how much clutter and dust accumulates over two weeks.

How was your weekend?

Erin Condren Take Note Notebooks Return and Coupon Code

I am so excited for the return of the Take Note! Notebooks.  My husband previously used one of these to keep himself organized, but last year they were replaced by the On the Go Notebooks which just weren’t the same for his needs.

I can’t wait for the return of these notebooks and I’m sure I’ll be replacing our On the Go Notebook with a new Take Note one when they are available.

Stitch Fix March 2015

I received my sixth Stitch Fix earlier this month and was so excited!  If you aren’t familiar with Stitch Fix , you pay a $20 styling fee.  For that $20, you will receive five items chosen specifically for you based on your (pretty extensive) style profile.  You pay for the items you keep (and the $20 fee is deducted from your total).  It includes a postage paid envelope to return what you don’t want and if you keep everything, you save 25%.

You need to check out on the Stitch Fix website within five days.

March 2015 Stitch Fix First Look

I was a little worried by the first look because the box wasn’t very full.  I shouldn’t have been worried though because I loved what I received.

IMG_6346

March 2015 Stitch Fix Invoice

Each Stitch Fix contains an invoice listing the items received, the total, and then the total if you keep all 5 items.

March 2015 Stitch Fix Styling Cards.

Additionally, you also receive styling cards for each item.  I like that they show a dressy and more casual look for each item.

March 2015 Stitch Fix Stylist Note

With the styling cards is a note from the stylist explaining what they chose and why they chose it.  I loved that she tried to include items from my last Stitch Fix and was able to include one.

Gilli Kamile Jersey Ruched Dress

 

Gilli Kamile Jersey Ruched Dress: $64.00

I LOVE this dress.  We have a couple of weddings in the fall and this is great.  It’s banded at the waist and is a jersey material so it’s very flattering and comfortable.  I really like that it’s navy so it can be worn any season.  KEPT

IMG_6356

Market & Spruce Aleah Heathered V-Neck Dolman Top

 

Market & Spruce Aleah Heathered V-Neck Dolman Top: $48.00

This top is actually a heathered blue-gray.  I really need to get a new camera and take a photography class because my current one is just not cutting it lately and I was clearly having lighting issues.  But back to the top: sometimes dolman tops are cut wrong for me because I’m short, but this one falls great and is very flattering.

Papermoon Kualo Bow Back Knit Top

IMG_6354

Papermoon Kualo Bow Back Knit Top

Papermoon Kualo Bow Back Knit Top: $44.00

I’m not usually a fan of horizontal stripes (or any stripes really), but this one is very flattering.  The bow detail on the back is not so low that it even comes close to showing my bra so this is still work appropriate.  This is a lightweight knit so it’s great for Spring and Fall.  KEPT

IMG_6353

Brixon Ivy Atticus Pointelle Knit Sweater

 

Brixon Ivy Atticus Pointelle Knit Sweater: $58.00

This is absolutely not my style.  I have a couple of boxy sweaters so I don’t really need another one.  And I don’t look good in orange.  But, it was cheaper to keep this and get the discount for keeping everything than it was to return it, so I kept it and plan on giving it to my mother in law for Christmas – it’s much more her style than mine.  KEPT (but only because of the discount)

IMG_6352

Pixley Colibri Bird Print Tab-Sleeve Blouse

 

Pixley Colibri Bird Print Tab-Sleeve Blouse: $48.00

I am not a bird person.  I never buy clothes or accessories with birds on them.  But, the birds on this really look more like triangles than birds.  This shirt is longer and does cut up high on the side (so I have to wear a tank top under it).  I love the mint/pink color combination and since it’s like nothing I own I decided to keep it.  I have worn it a few times and gotten a lot of compliments on the colors when I wear it.  KEPT

 

Final Thoughts:

This month was well worth the $20 styling fee.  I love that I received a dress again and that there was more color included. The $20 I spend on the styling fee is worth not having to shop with little ones :)

Five on Friday

I’m linking up with a.liz adventuresDarciChristina, and Natasha for their 5 on Friday. :

We just got back from a quick stay at Great Wolf Lodge New England, so here are my five favorite pictures from our stay:

IMG_6517

Ave who is not a daredevil at all found some water slides that she LOVED.  She went up to the top and did the whole thing herself – we just needed to be at the bottom to catch her.  She probably went down the blue slide 100 times while we were there.

IMG_6532

Ella is totally our daredevil and she just made the height restriction for the bigger tube rides.  She absolutely had a blast going down them and loved that they went outside the building.  IMG_6608

 

We had a few credits left on a game card and the girls wanted to do one of the claw machines.  With some help from Dad, they each got a small plastic bear which they are obsessed with.  They are also obsessed with their “ears”.IMG_6631

Ella and I stumbled upon BINGO in the lobby and it ended up being one of my favorite memories.  She was lucky enough to win one game and was so happy with her prize of two Tootsie Rolls :)

I have no idea where or when this picture was taken at Great Wolf, but I love it because it’s just a great picture of them.  :)

Thanks for checking out my favorites this week!
