Crafty Happies

I have a few posts I'm working on right now but they're a little more serious in their nature so I want to focus on some fun little happiness to start off the four day week! 

Over the weekend I was in major on the prowl for craft supplies mode. Do y'all watch Elizabeth Modero on YouTube? If not you really should, I have a total girl crush on her; the channel is Modero Green Moments. But anyway, she's been talking a lot latley about her Erin Condren planner and it got me thinking that I have a few goals I'd like to focus on and a planner might be a great way to keep me on track. After spending waaaay too much time debating my options I decided a similar but more customizable planner was more for me and I ordered a Plum Paper Designs planner. But of course, I need nice pens, washi tape, stickers, labels and fun stuff to go with it. In case I've never said this before it's important you know I have a MAJOR love for stationary products and craft supplies. 

So after placing some Etsy orders I left the house to satisfy my I need pretty things right now urges. 

It started with felt tipped pens at Sam's Club. I LOVE felt tipped pens! Regular pens, especially fine tip ones make me feel like I'm scratching paper instead of writing. 


I then moved onto Michaels where I got an assortment of goodies


Including some Betsy Johnson stuff


Apparently I have been living under a rock because there have been cute Betsy Johnson supplies at Michaels all of 2015, and it's all $5 or less!!! I love novelty pens so these two really made my heart flutter. 

I also grabbed this cute macaroon coin purse


Which it turns out is perfect for carrying a few essential oils bottle in my purse: 


I have two15ml and one 5ml but it could easily hold four of the 5ml bottles. 

Based on my Facebook you'd probably think latley I've been obsessing over the Lilly for Target collection and / or essential oils. And for the most part you would be right. I mean, I obviously work but I try to keep that off social media. Plus you know, being an adult can be expensive and blogging about car repairs just isn't fun. 

In the next week or so I'll have some fun goodies coming in to share and I'll talk more about some of the homemade beauty products I've gotten into. 

Ps: 2015 is just flying by! It's now officially wear white season and summer, wow! Happy Start of Summer y'all!

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Zyto Scan Review

Recently I received my first Zyto scan. And I know most of you reading this are thinking, what the heck is a Zyto scan??? 
There's a graphic below but basically a Zyto scan is a device to read the bio-markers of the body (there are 76) and provides feedback on "out of range" markers and recommends products as a result. The Zyto scan does not diagnose or treat medical conditions, that's what doctors are for y'all. Because I received my scan at a Young Living class, my results were for Young Living products. 
The scan is painless and easy, one simply rests their hand on the cradle like so and watches a quick video on the process: 
This is me getting my scan 
A diagram of how it works 
After a few minutes received my results! Of 76 bio-markers 19 were out of balance, which isn't bad. I've really been making a push to focus on my health so I was pretty pleased with the results. 
Here's my report: 

I really love how in addition to recommendations the report discu…

Ipsy Glam Bag April 2017

OMG, Ipsy finally has a cute bag for the month!
Seriously, this month's coral ticket design bag is super cute and would make a fun little clutch for a night out at a festival or fair.
The items I received this month weren't terrible either. Here's what's inside my bag and my thoughts on each product:
OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush $12 Everything I've received from this company in my Ipsy bad is a full-sized product (nice)! However they need to be in a refillable palette so that may not be your thing but I just found mine recently so this offends me less. This is overall a nice shade so I'll add it to my palette.
Hanalei Aloe Soothing Gel $30 This is a little more lightweight than the aloe gel you can get in a giant bottle at CVS but I'm skeptical yet if that makes it worth $30 for a jar. We're going to the beach in May so the timing is good and I'm sure I'll use the whole sample.
No Poreblem Primer $18 This is a nice, lightweight primer and has a …

Thank you, Thank you very much

Every time I hear that sending thank you notes today will set one apart I'm a little shocked, I know plenty of people who send thank you notes. But I also probably know a few who do not and just don't want to admit it. If you're ever in doubt about when to send a thank you note or need some ideas to get you in the habit than fear not, I am here to offer you some advise. Most of this I feel is common (apparently semi common) knowledge I've gathered over the years but I'll also offer you some special practices I have developed. I've also got some pictures of the type of card that might be appropriate. All examples are available at Tiny Prints. Job Interviews Seriously, it really shocks me that people don't do this. If you want the job, send a thank you note. I usually keep some in my car and will write it and take to the post office as soon as the interview is over. In fact, if you know the decision is going to be made the next day write it in the parking l…

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…
