Last year I got my long hair on track to become really healthy. It's no longer brittle or dry so I've recently been experimenting more with giving my flat, straight hair more volume. I can't rave enough over the Volaire... Continue reading

Over 1,000 suggestions came in based on kids' real-life and imaginary pets. The pet rock (harking back to my own childhood) and the sloth bat were inspired by drawings and... Continue reading

This post has been a long time coming! I did a big Japanese Marker order via Amazon earlier this spring. So far, I have been really loving these markers. I have really been trying to work on having more time to be creative and I'm starting to get into lettering. All of these markers are great for writing fun notes or shopping lists. I love writing in color! Most of my order came from Japan and I want to say that the pens and makers came relatively quickly. I think it took about a week for these to arrive.\ Here's...

While shopping on Amazon the other day, I happened to find that there were quite a few Erin Condren products for sale that included prime shipping. One thing that really caught my eye was the Erin Condren 2017-2018 Hardbound LifePlanner 8 X10 Midcentury Circles Colorful ($16.99 on Amazon). I was a huge fan of the LifePlanner for two years but I just didn't like how bulky the coil made everything and how hard it was to write on Wednesdays because of that coil. I purchased a Small Hardbound LifePlanner in the Cherry Blossom color with Rose Gold edges. The horizontal... Continue reading
