Spooky Skulls

October 20, 2014
I love the fun spookiness of Halloween! Ryan grew up in Hispanic culture and is (still) afraid the coocooey is gonna come out and snatch him at night haha. Which means I have to stick to cutesy Halloween decor and leave the really spooky stuff to our front porch! Poor Ryan ;)

I'll take any opportunity to get into the Halloween spirit, so I snagged this skull skirt and was super excited when Made by Jewls gave me these adorable bat earrings! is giving you the chance to win $100 in daily prize giveaways or a grand $3,000 prize until October 31st with their Halloween Creepstakes! Who doesn't need some extra cash to stash away for the upcoming holidays? also has an adorable online magazine that features Halloween Ideas on The Good Stuff; such as Halloween kid treats, costumes inspired by TV shows, and simple spooky crafts. It's such a fun online place to search for cute holiday inspired crafts and treats! I'll definitely be referring back to The Good Stuff for last minute costumes and fun treat ideas for my upcoming Halloween parties!

Being a Basic Fall Girl

October 16, 2014
Can I just be completely basic and express how much I love fall? Sweaters, boots, tweed, tights...the whole shebang is pretty awesome. On a completely unrelated note, I just finished helping to throw a bloggers night out with The Mouse Trap Truck tonight and it was a hit! Besides the business aspect of throwing blogger parties, I thoroughly enjoy seeing bloggers enjoy each others company. Isn't that what this weirdo blogger world is about? Connecting? 

Just wanted to toot my horn a bit and say that I'm glad everyone had such a great time. Other people being happy makes me extremely happy! Plus I love making blogger business connections with awesome store owners in Provo, yet another thing that makes my heart sing! On to a full weekend of blogger events, can't wait to have more excuses to hang out with some of my favorite people :)

How To Do Your Laundry In the Dorms Feat. Amazon WishList

October 14, 2014
I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias. #AmazonWishList #AmazonHasIt #CollectiveBias

My younger brother Jesse is now a college freshmen at my alma mater BYU, and I love having him close by! He tends to ask questions that normal freshmen do, such as: What kind of oil do I put in my car? How long do I cook the chicken for? What temperature do I wash my brights on? He has come over numerous times to get help with laundry and to make sure he doesn't forget what I've taught him, I made this infographic for reference! 

My parents like to make sure he is stocked on cleaning/washing supplies, so the new #AmazonWishlist feature on would be a great tool for Jesse to let them know when he is low on dorm necessities. Also, if they sign up for a subscription of this Proctor & Gamble laundry necessities box they can save 5% so Jesse is never detergent-less again! 

This Proctor & Gamble Laundry Bundle with Tide Pods, Downy, and Unstoppable is the perfect dorm care package that is both thoughtful and useful! The Tide Pods come in Spring Meadow, the Bounce dryer sheets in Outdoor Fresh, and Downy Unstoppables give laundry that extra fresh boost. Boys smell (it's especially bad in the dorms), so all of these amazing smell-good products will go to great use! 

The #AmazonWishList feature allows the user to simply add the #AmazonWishList hashtag on the end of a tweet which includes a product they are interested in (with an link); and it will automatically add it to the wish list on their Amazon account! Some of the other features that come with the Amazon Wish List is: Save-A-Photo, Universal Wish List Add-On, and Virtual Notes. Then my personal favorite is the Don't Spoil my Surprise, which allows friends/family of the user to view the wish list and surprise them with something off the list without notifying the user of it's purchase! 

To help you get the hang of #AmazonWishList, Amazon is hosting a Twitter party! They will be offering special promotions on all featured items which also includes $1 off any of the featured products purchased during the party when using the hashtags #AmazonWishList and #AmazonHasIt. They'll also be giving away 10 Kindles during the Twitter soiree! Um, who doesn't want discounted stuff and the possibility of winning a Kindle?! The shindig is TOMORROWOctober 15th from 11-12pm EST. Be there or be square!! Or go square dancing...whichever ;)
