Happy Halloween!

I cannot believe how fast time flies! Has it really been a few weeks since I last posted?!  Well, I DO have but a fabulous excuse {for a week, at least!}: DISNEYLAND!!

We just got back from our entire family going {parents, siblings, nieces & nephews included} and had a blast! I'd never been there for their "Halloweentime," and it was so much fun to see the park decorated for the season!  If you've never been, I'd highly recommend going this time of year. Not only is the park festive, but the lines are much shorter and the weather is much more delightful.

As they say, pictures are worth a thousand words, so rather than ramble on, just enjoy the photos that ensue!

{Swankadot} GIVEAWAY & Review *CLOSED*

I am a coupon clipper.  Not an avid one, but I do clip coupons that I think I will use.  I have great admiration for those of you out there who clip "religiously," if you will.  I can't bring myself to do that...mainly because I don't think I have the patience for it.  But either way, if you use coupons at all, you know how hard it is to keep them organized.  Then throw into that mix, that we budget for some of our expenses and use "cash envelopes" to separate the money into categories.  And now you see how much I have a need for something to organize all that chaos!

The solution?  Meet the Klutch from Swankadot.  These are fabulous ways to organize everything from receipts and coupons to cash, gift cards and more.  And what I particularly love about these is the fabulous fabric selection you can get yours in!  Here is the one I just received, called "Swank":

I love the concept of these, as well as their effectiveness & practicality.  I am also particularly fond of their uniqueness - that is, that they come in customizable, gorgeous fabrics that you won't find elsewhere.

The Klutches are handcrafted in one designer fabric on the outside, and another coordinating designer fabric on the inside.  Some rickrack {or other trim} dresses up the inside, and each one closes with a coordinating elastic band.

Each Klutch has 13 file pockets inside to fill with your goods (receipts, business cards, etcetera).  And included with every order are preprinted alphabet letters to fit inside the tabs. {You can also specify blank tabs, so that you can write whatever you want on the tabs, if you prefer}.  And at approximately 13" long by 5" high, this is the perfect size to toss into your purse.

BUY IT! Visit Swankadot today to get yourself organized!  Also a fabulous idea for a Christmas gift for your mom, sister or girlfriends!

{Crib} Mattresses.

 When you're a new parent, there are so many things to buy for baby.  But with so many choices on the market in the World of Baby, it's really hard to know what you need, what you don't need {my husband's favorite!}, and what brand/s to go with.

One of the important decisions you need to make is what kind of mattress to get for your baby.  Sounds simple enough.  But actual, this is one decision that could save your baby's life.  Sooo...it's an important one.

All Crib Mattresses is a site that can help you make the right choice.  That is, the choice that's right for you.  From reviews and the differences between foam and innerspring mattresses to firmness and the benefits of organic mattresses, this site has got all the information you need to find.  So no searching and researching all over the internet - it's a one-stop shop.

So be sure to check them out before purchasing a mattress for your baby.  You can click here to check out their Buyer's Guide {there's one for both the standard crib mattress size and one for the mini crib mattress size.

Happy October!

Although, I have to say, it certainly doesn't feel like Autumn here in the desert, as we've been breaking records...107 degrees here yesterday. (Sigh).  How is it in your neck of the woods? Are you getting the nice Fall weather, or still scorching like me?

Anyways. I can't allow this heat wave to spoil my day...so...you know what always makes me feel better? Haute Hair Couture!

Red Rosette with Polka Dot Feather on Black Headband...divine...$10
