Mommy Lhey Little Bits May 2017

I debated posting a review of this month because they were a few issues with the May Little Bits box but I think part of the reason blogger reviews are more trusted than a product advertisement is because they are authentic - at least they are supposed to be. To me it's completely unrealistic that every subscriber is going to love every single item in a subscription so when a review is just constant swooning it seems well,. super fake to me, - and I never want to be like that.
 
The May box arrived in June due to a delay in shipping the notebook - Mommy Lhey was incredibly transparent about the process and provided multiple updates. Hey , stuff happens and at the end of the day it's just stationary items and I think Mommy Lhey handled the process completely professionally and I have no complaints. I was very excited on Monday when I received the box to dig in and see all the goodies:  
 
The contents of the May box with two items missing - I will address that at the end of this post.
 
This traveler's notebook is certainly worth the wait! I'll need to take a picture of all three together but I think this one might be my favorite I love the color and that it came with a matching pen.
 
 
Here's some of the "little bits" this month:

Bookmarks. stamp set. washi, die cuts, planner clip, sequins, stencils and a cute pouch.
 
This month's stickers:
There were also some puffy stickers but I couldn't get a good photo of them. I received a duplicate of one of my sticker sheets so I'm not sure if it was an extra or there's another sheet design, not a big deal worth making a fuss over. I love the color scheme this month and think these are really cute!
 
As always, the box included a card with information on digital downloads - I'm obsessed with the tassel print paper and have a feeling I'll be making multiple prints with it.
 
If you're looking at this and comparing the product mix to previous months you might feel like there are less items. This month's box also came with sticky notes and a planner charm but I have chosen to discard these items. Ordinarily if it's just something not to my taste I would show the item but this month's items gave me some pause. The theme of the May box is Wild and Free and some of the items are symbolism from Native American culture and although the design is very pretty I don't feel like this is the appropriate use for such a symbol / sacred item. Although I'm disappointed these items were included I fee like even without them the box is a good value.  I understand that these items are "trendy" right now and I don't think any ill will was meant with their inclusion - but again I want to be completely honest with my experience as a subscriber and my true thoughts on the included items.     
Sign ups are closed for June, which has a beach theme, but occasionally there are extras at the end of the month if you keep up with Mommy Lhey on social media. Sign ups are currently available for July through June 18th  which has a very girly and floral look - the theme will be Me, Myself and I. Boxes can be purchased as a subscription or as a one time advance purchase. I'm looking forward to my next two boxes!

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…

Spring Styles to Wear Now

Is it just me or is 2019 passing along quickly? Welcome to March which is said to come in like a lion and out like a lamb. Sometimes fashion seasons and the weather don't match up but the fashion show must go on! While I'm waiting for the weather to catch up I'm wearing some new spring items with some added warmth now and I'll wear them without the layers later. Here's just a few examples of how you can take spring items and start wearing them now. One of my favorite items to wear is a loose tunic - they are comfortable, cute and flattering. While I love a tunic with skinny jeans right now it needs a little extra layer for warmth so I'm topping this tunic I picked up at the Southern Women's Show with my utility jacket. When the weather warms up I'll either wear with the jeans alone, white pants or even a khaki skirt. Wear It Now Wear It Later

I came across this pink dress I just had to have it - it's so fun and super flattering. To wear …

Body Confidence

I have people tell me a lot that "I'm so confident" with such a tone of surprise and while really I think it's just that I'm a plus size women who happens to be loud and doesn't try to hide from the world but sometimes if I'm in a sensitive mood I'll take that as umm, don't you own a mirror, you should maybe be quiet and go to the gym. I'd say about 90% of the time I can say although I don't have my ideal body I don't hate myself and I don't let it keep me from living my life but then there's that 10% of the time . . .

Last week I had such a moment, You may have noticed that my pics I post on social media are either of me standing or are chest up if I'm sitting - now this is partially because I typically only take pics seated if I'm showing off a product so I was a more close up anyway but also here's something this people never have to think about - when you're plus size and you sit down if consolidates all t…

Lauren James Warehouse Sale Haul

Hello Friends! I know many of y'all kept up with my Lauren James warehouse sale journey over the weekend and if you're anything like me you like following along even if you couldn't make it yourself. When Lauren James announced the warehouse sale I was super excited but not sure I could make it work - it was short notice, a five hour drive and I'd already spent my June spending money. Luckily I have a good hubby who recognizes that sometimes you just need something fun in your life and was ok not only making the trip but with me borrowing from ourselves against my July spending money. Since this is the last warehouse sale Lauren James plans on holding I really didn't want the opportunity to slip by.
Warehouse sales can serve many purposes for a business - as a way to move excess inventory, create buzz and excitement for the brand, reward the most loyal brand fans by giving them access to great deal (which also puts more product into the hands of those most excite…

Lane Bryant Best Fitting Denim

Ask 100 women what is the most versatile items in their closet and I bet 98% will say a pair of jeans. As I mentioned in my 2019 wardrobe goals getting another pair of jeans is on my closet to do this year since right now I only have one pair. And wouldn't you know it but the folks at Lane Bryant must have read my mind since they're offering the Best Fitting Denim event this upcoming weekend and they have asked me to be their special guest so not only I could find my own perfect fitting jeans but help y'all do the same. Lane Bryant offers a good variety of jeans not only in shape but in color, wash and fun details. Before showing the perfect pair for me here's a look at just a few of the options. It was really nice to be able to play around with the wash, length and fit so see what I liked about each.


Although I LOVE the fun ruffle and ribbon embellishments I felt like a traditional pair of jeans matches my lifestyle. I tried on the straight leg and boot cut three ti…
