Stitch Fix #4

So I must say I was super excited about this Stitch Fix Box. The stylist nailed my style and the pieces all fix really well, I was just not 100% sold on buying them all this time. (Trying to cut back on my clothes purchases!)

Here are 2 of the pieces I did not keep:

This Faux Wrap dress was super cute and I loved the color, but I was planning on buying a Lilly dress and just did not "need" another dress in my closet.

Then this shirt I went back and forth on but since I was only keeping 2 pieces for sure I sent this back to. The fit just did not do a lot for me.

So what did I keep? These amazing Adorra Skinny Jeans in Black and the Rilo Button-Up Blouse. I love this combo and it is great for the Fall into the winter.

Disney Count Down #3 Count downs!

We all love count downs and who does not love a paper chain countdown! I was looking all over Pinterest for count down ideas when I came across paper chains that look like Disney Characters. Perfect I was ready to get started!

I was going to be making a Minnie Mouse and A Cinderella so I got my supplies ready

Next step is to just start your paper chains. Minnie has a black loop, blue loop, pink loop, then white loop and repeat. Cinderella had a cream for her face, then blue and white loops.

Minnie's first step of loops:

Here are the complete chains before decorating.

Minnie got ears on the black loops and a pink bow.

Cinderella got blond hair and a crown:

Seriously these are so easy and I made them at work during my lunch hour. (I mean who does not craft at work during their lunch hour???)

The girls are going to love these and its just another fun way to get them ready for the trip.

Disney Count Down #1 Magic Bands

So you can call me crazy (I do), but we are taking the girls to Disney World this Fall. We took my oldest when she was just 2 years old, because I told the hubby we would take her before she had a sibling. That being said my last 2 trips at Disney World I have been 5 months pregnant each time!

This time I want to make the trip as special as it was 2.5 years ago. So of course I have been all over Pinterest looking for ideas. We picked out our Magic Band colors already. The girls are getting pink and yellow (will match the Princess Dresses they favor for the Princess Dinner), but I wanted to make them a little more special, when I found these! Personalized monograms for the bands! And in Princess and Minnie I had to get them:)

They came packaged so nicely and with a great instruction card.

When are Magic Bands showed up I was ready to get started right away. I was a little nervous because the instructions seemed so simple. But I got started with my supplies

Decal, band, and credit card to rub it on

All rubbed on with the top still in place....ready to remove...

And its off! They look amazing and truly are super easy to do. 

I did the second one and put them both back in the box

Then I went back online and ordered ones for EVERYONE else in our group! These make the bands so much more personal. Please check out Emily's site to order all types of fun items at great prices.

***No compensation was received for this post, I truly just loved her products and the price is amazing!

Vinyl Disorder Review

We have had a little bit of an issue in the new house...lots more walls that need something on them. I am not sure how, but I feel like we have TONS of extra wall space now. The dining room was already painted in colors that mostly worked with our furnishing from the old house so we just started decorating in there.

The pictures worked, but we had one wall that our current picture would not look right on and just needed something. I searched EVERYWHERE but could not find something that would fit the theme or work on such a dark color. Hubby came up with the idea of going with a fun quote on the wall.

We looked around and finally found this:

I loved the quote and it was perfect for the dining room, but I wanted it a different way on the way. I emailed the super responsive company and they told me I could cut the quote into as many pieces as I needed. I was sold I ordered right away. We got the quote at 60'' and in a dark grey.

When it arrived I was so eager to put it up. Here it is after being cut into 3 sections:

Then here is hubby putting it up on the way.

This went up super easy. We did use a play dough rolling pin to help get all the letters securely on the wall. Other than that it went on super easy. I loved that this is just the letters on the wall no other materials. Here is the final product (picture is not great, but we love it):
