Mommy Lhey Little Bits June 2017

Since the move and realizing how many craft supplies I already have I've been trying to cut back on my crafting / planning supplies spending but I still really enjoy receiving my Mommy Lhey Little Bits box as a monthly treat.

The June box had a wonderfully bright and cheery tropical theme, look at all the goodness included inside:


Yes, I know it's a lot for one photo - here's a breakdown of all the items:

 
The patterned papers
 
 
This is the 4th month in a rom Mommy Lhey has included a traveler's notebook cover in the kit - this month's is yellow which is perfect for summer. There's a cactus clip, sequins, puffy stickers, journaling cards, a pen pouch and a pineapple notepad.
 
 
That's not all! We also received a pineapple pen, washi tape, a flamingo planner charm, stamps, die cuts and eight sticker sheets.
 
 
 
I used the stickers and washi for my planner layout this week:
 
This kit is about $30 shipped and ships the last week of the month. Sign ups are currently open for August boxes , you have until July 18th if you'd like to join.
 
Mommy Lhey also recently had a summer sale and offered some grab bags and past kits, which of course I had to take advantage of. This Parisian themed set was the November 2016 box, this grab bag is missing the clip, charm and notepad that came with the full kit. I'm in LOVE!
 
 
I also purchased the January 2017 kit which has a fun photo theme
 
 
The quality and cute style is consistent among all the kits but it's interesting to see how the kit has evolved as the subscription base has increased. Purchasing products is all about volume discounts so has there have been more subscribers Mommy Lhey has been able to increase the amount of stuff in the kits - like offering a pouch and TN cover in each kit. I've never met her but this tells me a lot about Lhey as a person - the kit has always been a great value so she could have just let her margin increase as she received volume discounts - but of course I love that she increased the value of each box to her subscribers.
 
I'm so glad to subscribe to this kit and receiving it each months brings a big smile and warm fuzzies as I know the love that goes into each kit. I cannot recommend this kit enough!

Sweater Weather

Although I could do without the snow and single digit temps I do love winter because a lot of my favorite clothes are winter clothes. There's something about a cozy sweater that makes me feel good so of course I'm loving the current trend of statement sleeve sweaters.

With trends I really have to be careful to control myself, especially with these because it's a style I REALLY like. Without the little voice in my head reminding me that I do not need a closet of practically identical pieces I would own several of the tiered sleeve sweaters, thank goodness for that voice! For the tiered sleeve look I went with black because it's versatile and since this is such a trendy piece and there's no guarantee this will be in style come next winter I wanted something I would get a lot of wear out of this season. Likewise when buying a bell sleeve cardigan I wanted something I could wear throughout winter and possibly into spring - this sweater with jeans and a comfy tee unde…

2018 Wardrobe Goals

New Year, New Wardrobe . . .just kidding! If you offered to buy me a new wardrobe this time last year I would have been all over it but this year I would politely decline because there's too many items I wouldn't want to part with. I know I've made several posts here about my "closet project" and I'm sorry if I sound dramatic about it but y'all I am just so proud of myself.
Sketch of my favorite outfit of 2017 Full confession here: I am a shopaholic - I literally get an endorphin rush when I buy something I like and can spin into a depression episode if I really want something and can't buy it. Over the years I have realized how not only unhealthy this behavior is but how my frequent shopping was holding me back from other areas in my life and last year I decided to stop the cycle. It was hard, there were times when I was moody for days over not buying something or I obsessively looked at something I wanted online every single day counting down unti…

Gratitude Challenge

So this month I was all set to do the whole gratitude challenge thing  but as I started to think of what things I might post about I started to think maybe this isn't the best idea. Is it possible to do a gratitude challenge and come up with 30 unique expressions of gratitude without humble bragging? My day to day life is pretty boring and we don't have cute kids that provide a constant supply of little daily antidotes to be grateful about and I know that this isn't about picking up 30 material possessions  in my life and posting about them. But even when I look past the "stuff" in my life and more behind emotional and non tangible things it still just doesn't feel right - does the friend with the sick kid really need my post about how #blessed I am with good health popping up in her feed? I think not. 
Maybe I'm being Debbie downer on what's supposed to be a lighthearted and fun social media engagement but I just can't get my heart into it becau…

Thanksgiving Essentials

 Next week is Thanksgiving and I am soooo excited! Thanksgiving is basically all of my favorite things in one day - chilling in pjs watching the parade, delicious food, family time, and shopping! For the past few years we have gone our for Thanksgiving because the condo was not wheelchair friendly for my grandmother and my dad moved out of town but this year we're going back to having Thanksgiving at home and while I'm sad we won't have my grandma this year I am excited to be cooking the Thanksgiving meal again. In my humble opinion Thanksgiving is no time for healthy eating and since everyone has their own favorites I say bring on the carbs - this is what my menu this year will be: 1. Champagne Turkey 2. Stuffing 3. Green Bean Casserole 4. Sweet Potato Casserole 5. Mashed Potatoes 6. Peas 7. Corn Soufflé 8. Broccoli 9. Pillsbury Crescent Rolls 10. Cranberry sauce (from the can of course, I hate it but my family tells me this is the only way to have it) 11. Pie 12. Ma…

Shelby Jewel

I really wanted to have this post up yesterday but if you've been following my instagram stories at all you will have seen that I remembered this weekend that I still needed to refinish my dining room table if I had any hopes of using it for Thanksgiving (and yes, I am on track to finish it tonight, Woohoo!) So here I am a day late but not a dollar short with a post on some fun fashion finds. Last week I attended the preview party for a new online boutique started by Memphis Blogger Shelby Jewel. Shelby has beautiful taste so I knew I was interested in checking out her boutique. Nothing says welcome like a glass of Champagne! Racks of beautiful tops Swoon worthy Jackets Pretty Tassel Earrings So, I'll admit I was very nervous about this event, Shelby is very small and most boutique sizes are small as well - I am not. But, I really wanted to see the pretty things and thought hey, you never know. As I predicted clothing is available in S - L but I have found that with some bou…
