Christmas Pinterest Party!

It's that time of year we go with a Christmas theme Pinterest Party! 

Black Friday Deals with MojiLife!

 I think all of us who enjoy Black Friday shopping or Cyber Monday shopping for that matter, make a list. Either a mental list of items you want to get or a physical list. Digital or paper, it doesn't matter. I just got word that MojiLife is doing some Black Friday deals and I am super stoked to share these deals with you!

But first, if you have never heard of MojiLife or know what it is, it is a little air diffuser that is cordless, waxless, flameless and totally safe to have around kids and pets. You pop a scent inside and a little fan blows the scent which is on a wood ring, up and out into the air. My home smells wonderful and I don't have to worry about leaving it on when I leave the house. I dont have to worry about knocking in to it. It has a charging cord and you can let the diffuser run 24 hours a day, on an hour or off and hour OR, sync it to an app on your phone and schedule it to run when you want. I love that part the most!

There are a couple bundle deals:


A deal on the Black AirMoji (so tempting! I have a white one already...) 

 Then, new scents! I had no idea they'd release more new scents so soon after the winter ones were put out there.


The Autumn Elegance and Harvest Moon are 2 of my favorites!

Deal on cleaning supplies and 2 scents:

I have these samples and they are perfect to test out and see how well you like how they perform:

So there you have it! Get ready to shop on the 21st and be sure to let me know if you have any questions on any of the items I posted about.

Have a great day!

Pinners Conference - SLC

If you live in Utah or have a Pinterest account, you may have heard of Pinners Conference. It's in 4 states this year which I think is amazing because the conference has been growing. I have had a blast attending this conference for the past couple years in Utah and the time to attend is coming up quick...

Easy Halloween Owl Keychain

This cute little guy was simple to put together and arrived just in time for the upcoming holiday! Whoo hoo!

Halloween Party Props!

Halloween is one of my more favorite holidays and I lean towards cute decor instead of creepy/bloody/super spooky. For the past few years I host a Halloween theme Pinterest party with food and crafts but whatever kind of party you decide to host this upcoming Halloween, photo props are a fun way to document and celebrate the holiday.

AirMoji with MojiLife Deal!

I was at the Utah State Fair a couple weeks ago and saw a booth talking about MojiLife. After asking probably 100 questions, I decided to sign up as a distributor but mainly because I just love love the AirMoji

Summer Pinterest Party!

This Pinterest party was a summer theme - leaving the options for craft and food pretty open for people tho get creative and dig deep through their Pinterest boards to find the perfect craft and or recipe to share with everyone. 

Always must have the Pinterest banner, new this time I finally remembered to use my Heidi Swapp lightbox even though it didnt show up that well in the picture.

Craft Warehouse Favorites!

We all know that Craft Warehouse is one of my favorite craft stores. It's also important to note that it is only in WA, OR and ID that I know of. So any time I travel to one of those states, I make it a point to go!

Tony & I went to Idaho in July to see his grandma before she passed away and I was able to go to Craft Warehouse in Meridian. Squee! I found tons of good stuff and can't wait to share it all with you guys.

My Favorite Target Finds for June


I was a little sad I did not find a whole lot of new things at my Target on this trip but I found a few things that I did want to share.

What I'm Loving at....World Market!

I have not been to this store in months! But a girl posted about a pineapple silicone icecube tray on a blog post and it was so darn cute. She told me she got it at this store and since I was headed to Target anyways, this was right on my way to stop in. I found so much cute stuff in the store I wished I could have gotten but instead I took some pictures to share with you all. 


How fun are these sticky notes!

Dessert For A Year Giveaway!

Welcome to the 'Dessert For A Year' Giveaway! If you live in Utah, know someone in Utah, or plan on coming to Utah in the future, you need to know about CrEATe. It is located in Sandy, UT at 9305 South Village Shop Drive, across from WalMart and Hobby Lobby and neighbors with Cafe Rio.  Open for less than 6 months, they already have an average 5-star rating on Yelp! Starting in June, they are introducing their Organic Shaved Ice, different from ordinary shaved ice because all the syrups are organic with no chemical additives! They are simply better than what you're used to in shaved ice. You can taste the difference! My husband and I like getting shaved ice in the summer since our place does not have ac and I am looking forward to trying this Organic Shaved Ice!

CrEATe is a Design It Yourself donut and dessert shop. After all, who knows your tastes more than you? They carry donuts, croissant donuts, crepes, brownies, cookies, cheesecake, gourmet drinking chocolate, pie, gelato and Sorbet. You pick out your fresh base dessert, and they will fill it, frost it, glaze it, mix it, or top it just the way you want it. If you can dream it, crEATe can build it.

Gelato and sorbet are made fresh in-house with organic sugar and imported Italian ingredients. We use real cream and fresh milk in our cream fillings, real organic maple in our maple glaze, and real raspberry in our raspberry glaze, and our drinking chocolate is made with real Belgium chocolate!

Beef - It's What's For Dinner [Review]

It's no secret - I love eating meat! Hamburgers and steaks are my favorite as well as chicken. Recently I had the opportunity to try Jones Creek Beef here in Utah. They raise all their cows from birth to harvest so they can control what is being consumed, to ensure they only have access to open grazing, exercise, direct sunlight and fresh air. I eat a lot of processed food so it's really nice to take a break from that once in awhile and eat something healthier.

Target Favorites for May!

 I've been to Target a couple times this month - and these are some of the cutest things I found that I just loved!

First off - baby stuff

This line of baby clothes had some fun prints, especially the blue triangles. Lucky for me I have a brand new niece and nephew I can buy for!

It's a 5K Vacation!

I've participated in The Color Run here in Utah the past few years and this year is no exception! Even if you don't love to run, that's okay! I walk and half run this 5K. There is not just 1 way to participate. Everyone is having fun and encouraging people around them. 

A Little DIY Project - Part 1

It was a beautiful day to start my project. I went to Tony's cousins house in Magna since she has a yard and I do not. 

I posted a sneakpeak on my Instagram account a few days previous.

Let's Create Expo Ticket Giveaway!

If you live in Utah and have never heard of the Let's Create Expo, it's one of the most fun events if you like crafts, shopping and learning some cool new skills. It used to be known as the Scrapbook Expo so that may ring a bell for you. With the Let's Create Expo it encompasses so much more than just scrapbooking. There are lots of fun giveaways,contests and dance parties throughout the day and night!

$100 Giveaway to LuLaRoe

Chances are that by now you have heard of LuLaRoe or know someone who sells it. My friend Corrina here in Utah, approached me about exchanging some product for my honest review and a giveaway on my blog! I owned not one single piece of LuLaRoe clothing at the time but have a couple good friends in Arizona and California that sell it and I think a lot of it is pretty cute so I said yes! you go!

Introducing....the Randy shirt! I fell in love with this design the moment I saw it. Probably because I love the color teal but I'm also a huge fan right now of these style of shirts. It fits me perfect and is soft and comfortable to wear. I pair it with the hat there, on occasion, which I found at Hobby Lobby.

Spring Themed Pinterest Party!

 It was time to do another Pinterest party and spring is a fun theme to do so that's what we did! My sister had to cancel coming at the last minute which was really sad. We had 4 girls show up and we had a blast!

St Patrick's Day Candy Can

 My coworker and her daughter had this really cute idea to use the small clear craft paint style cans and layer them with Rolos on the bottom for gold and Sixlets in the color of the rainbow on the top. I had a couple small containers and thought it'd be fun to give the ladies I visit teach. 

100th Post & A Finished Craft!

 These wood blocks were made at the Valentine Pinterest party and I'm just now finishing them! The first step was to sand and cut the paper to fit on all 4 sides for 4 different season. We did Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter and the 4th of July. I had mine and my sister's blocks at my house for awhile but finally sat down at my Cricut Explore just a couple nights ago to get them finished - just in time for St. Patrick's Day!

What I'm Loving At Target

 It's been a little bit since I have been to Target and I needed to get a couple things so I headed over and took a moment to scope out some of my new favorite things! Here's what I found.

How cute is this basket? I love the turquoise roses

Valentine's Day Outfit Ideas!

In the past, I haven't cared too much about what I have worn for Valentine's Day. I do try to wear something pink or red but I don't scout out new clothes to wear. I'm not sure why this year I feel like I want to switch it up and buy a new shirt at least and who knows if I really will but here are some cute ideas if you are looking or interested like I am! Less than 2 weeks away so look fast! We all know I'm the last person who should be giving fashion advice but these tees were some of my favorites. Here I go, creating crafting outfit ideas!

I got to review a couple samples from Crowdtap recently, of Aveeno products.

The daily moisturizing location was great because it did feel oily or greasy on my hands. The same for the sunscreen. I thought both had a great scent, not too strong, and the sunscreen did a good job of protecting my skin when I spent a few hours outside without any shade. I'd recommend both of these products - in a larger size!
