Mommy Lhey Little Bits Box April 2017

Yesterday my 2nd Little Bits Box arrived and I am so in love!
 
One thing I think is really great about this subscription is that there's the option to pre-order a month at a time (it's $5 more than subscribing) and there's any option to cancel without having to give two month's notice - this is great if a particular month's theme just isn't for you or life happens and you need to take a break.
 
The April theme is "Believe in Magic" and features whimsical creatures such as fairies and unicorns. Let's take a look inside:
 
 
I know that's a lot to look at so I'll break down the items for you. First up is the sticker sheets - each box comes with eight sheets and they are very high quality stickers and able to be used in a variety of planners:

 
I can't imagine this will be any every month item but in March we received pocket size travelers notebooks and this month we received personal size. These notebooks are so cute and I love the matching ruler, as a bonus they come pre filled with the inserts so they're ready to use. Plus it's my favorite color!

 
Some of the "little bits" in the box: die cuts. cupcake clip, stamps. hot air balloon charm, washi and journaling cards.

 
Here's a look at the various die cuts, I will be laminating some and using as planner clips or planner charms. I'm so in love with the fairy.

 
Also in the box is a stencil set and puffy stickers. Next month I'll do a better job capturing the stencils.

 
AND there's also a unicorn pen pouch, sequins for making shakers and a jewel pen.

 
Not photographed but in the box were three double sided printed paper. Additionally there is a link for digital downloads - I LOVE and appreciate that Mommy Lhey does this so much so I think when planner subscriptions come with so many beautiful items people hate to use them and just hoard the stuff - knowing that I can reprint some prints as needed makes it easier to actually use what's in the box. Plus let's be real - this stuff is too cute to just be tucked away.

Pre-orders for June will start May 1st and go through the 18th. Next month's theme has already been announced to be 'Wild and Free" and although Boho isn't usually my thing I really like Mommy Lhey's take on it from the sneak peaks she has shared. I highly recommend this kit and giving it a try.

Sensible Portions

I'm Sometimes you have to recognize your strengths and when it's time to outsource . For me a healthy lifestyle is not a strength. I love the idea of eating small healthy meals and working out everyday but then I get hangry and eat anything in sight. Or I have a busy weekend and don't have time to meal prep, and then I'm screwed for the week and one bad week turns into a bad month, and a bad year and a decade of gaining weight. So, when a sorority sister posted a meal plan she had found success with I was very interested. Shaun and I tried a similar program last year but it was very expensive ($170 for one person for 5 days) That's a great investment if you need to lose 10 or 20 lbs but when you have a lot to lose you need a long term plan that is viable from a time, nutrition and financial aspect. 
Long term it's still pricey but I was very impressed with the value and results of sensible portions and decided to give it a try. Like most meal plans the plan is …

Customize your clothing with Eshakti

Have you ever seen an article of clothing and loved it but thought oh, if only it had sleeves, or was longer - as someone who is 5’10 this happens to me ALL THE TIME! Allow me to introduce you to eShakti - the fashion site that allows you to customize your clothes. 



eShakti has hundreds of styles to choose from so picking a piece is honestly the hardest part. I selected this blue and white ruffle stripe dress thinking it would be perfect for spring and summer - I love wearing it now but I can’t wear it to the beach in May! Once you select your item you either enter your size or measurements and enter your height. You can then buy the item as it or pay a $9.95 styling fee to select the neckline, sleeves and length to your liking. My dress was above the knee in the default style but I thought a below the knee length would be perfect and I was not disappointed! 
Most pieces are under $100 making this an affordable and approachable way to have a unique and custom piece in your closet. Th…

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…

Memphis Fashion Week Emerging Designers Preview

April doesn't just mean spring in Memphis is also means fashion! Tickets are completely sold out for this year's Memphis Fashion Week but what I love about MFW is the inclusiveness - the Trunk Show is open to the public Friday and Saturday and Saturday at 11am there will be a free designer talk also open to the public.   MFW always closes with the Emerging Designer Project Runway Show and it has become quite the popular event - you don't typically think of Memphis as being a fashion hub but there is a great amount of talent and creativity here! This year Memphis Fashion Design Network (the parent organization of MFW) hosted a preview of the emerging designer works. While it's always fun to see these works of art come to life on the runway it was really cool to see these pieces up close too - and of course to be able to share with y'all! A crowded party isn't the ideal spot for my best photography but I hope y'all enjoy seeing these designs and if you'…

Memphis Fashion Week 2019 Featured Designers

This year's Memphis Fashion Week (MFW) really emphasized Memphis Fashion and I couldn't love it more if I tried. The Friday Featured Designer Runway show featured four local Memphis designers and one regional designer. I tried to get a photo of each look but sometimes the models move before the shutter snaps or the pic just doesn't come out good but I hope this (pic heavy) post gives you an idea of all the talent in Memphis and the south! Tanganika by Tangie Tangie uses cotton African prints to make beautiful, colorful clothing. I think these items are just so beautifully made and I love the details. I'll admit that in our politically sensitive world I worry that if I wore such a print it could come off as cultural appropriation instead of appreciation but seeing these looks on the runway has really reminded me that my goal this year it to step outside my fashion comfort zone.
