Gift Guide for the Little Guys


* Affiliate links used.

Are you still shopping? *raises hand* Yeah, me too. There's quite a few sales right now with toys to take advantage of so I'm hoping this Gift Guide for the Little Guys helps you out! I think it's my favorite post around the holidays because I'm largely just going off of what's on my boy's Christmas lists and it's so fun to see what they're into! I tried to hit a bunch of different price points in this guide, as well!

Target Trees, Stockings + Decor, oh my!


*Affiliate links used.

The boys got their own little mini tree this year. I never thought to have one for them since we have our main one in the livingroom but I went tree crazy last year and there's definitely a few to spare. They had such a blast decorating it and it's hands down, my favorite tree out of the whole house. They did everything and every time I look at it, it brings a huge smile to my face. Also, all the decorations are from Target and were $3 and less.


I was so inspired by their tree that I scoped out Target and put together a big huge round up of alllllllll things holiday-decor related. Looking for stockings? Boom, it's got it's own little category. Trees? I gotchu. Pillows, random decor - I got it all!

PS. Target is currently having a 30/40% off sale on a lot of their Opalhouse, Threshold and other holiday decor items! Ends 12/3.

Gifts + Stocking Stuffers For Just About Everyone On Your List


This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com

The holidays are right around the corner and one of my favorite parts of them is the gift giving. I love shopping for them. I love wrapping them. I love the whole sha-bang! But let's be honest - what happens when you have someone on your list that is tough to shop for. Or maybe need a White Elephant gift where the gift could be for anyone. Or heck, maybe you might need a gift for someone you've never met before (raise your hand if you've ever had to buy a gift for your husband's boss's third cousin 🙋)?


No worries, I got you covered because today, I've compiled a few stocking stuffers/gifts that are total winners, no matter who they're going to!

Easy Peasy Holiday Makeup Tutorial


*This post contains affiliate links.

With Thanksgiving just a few short weeks away, I had to get up this super quick and easy holiday makeup tutorial! Quick and easy is the name of the game here. Truthfully, I don't have much time for myself on the holidays. I'm normally getting the boys ready, making sure Ant is getting ready (everyone meet my third child - ha!) and then waiting until the last minute to get myself ready. 

I'm also really excited I got to use the ColourPop Truly, Madly, Deeply Palette ($23)! Not only is the price point awesome but I can't say enough amazing things about how gorgeous it is!

Say Good-Bye To Germ-Covered Phone Cases w/ Tech21


This post is sponsored by Babbleboxx on behalf of Tech21.

I'll admit it. I'm on my phone a lot. I think, as a blogger, that kind of comes with the territory. We kind of have to be active on social media and check our e-mails often. I try not to be on it with my boys around and take the weekends off, but truth be told, whenever I get a second when they're busy, I pop on to social media. It's not my proudest moment, guys.

On top of that, my children LOVE using my phone to watch videos, especially if we're out and about. It's something I roll with because they love being outdoors over video games so I don't mind handing over my phone to them while I get some grocery shopping done, y'know?

Needless to say, my phone is used a lot - which means germ central. I once read an article that your phone is covered in more germs than a toilet seat. GAG.

The boys and I decided to do a little experiment and swab my phone to see just how gross it really is. I mean, there's how bad can it really be?

The Haunted Graveyard at Lake Compounce


A big thank you to Lake Compounce for hosting our trip to their amusement park!

A few weeks ago, we had a blast at The Haunted Graveyard at Lake Compounce in Bristol, CT. You guys know how much I love Lake Compounce - you can check out our past visits in the summertime here and here - but did you know Lake Compounce is open for the fall season as well?

Lake Compounce and The Haunted Graveyard is open, starting September 27th, every weekend until November 2nd! You can even buy your tickets online here! PS. I do not recommend bringing your little guys to this. While most rides are open, the Kiddie Land and Crocodile Cove are closed for the season.
