Disney Fantasy Gown Nightgown Pajamas



These pajamas are SO flippin’ cute guys! I found them at Costco for $12.99 but there are tons of them on Amazon for less than $20. We just purchased an Elsa and Belle gown earlier today.

Melanie is OBSESSED with her Disney Elsa Nightgown.
Costco Find! Only $12.99 FTW

Update 5/8/19: The glitter on this dress irritates my daughters skin. She had severe Eczema as a baby so she has sensitive skin. Washed 4 times and still glitter coming off… I’m in a tough situation because Melanie is asking to wear this dress 10000x a day. We’ll try again in a few more washes.

Purple For Brown Hair By Overtone

So.. if you haven’t noticed already, my hair is red. Not ginger red but red, red. I had my hair bleached about a year ago and didn’t like the look of my roots growing out. I absolutely don’t have the time (or money tbh) to sit in a salon for 4 hours getting my roots bleached again. My solution? Add color.


I found Overtone in my FB feed and decided to give it a try… Fell. In. LOVE.

Overtone is a colored hair conditioner/treatment so it colors your hair on top of making my frizzy damaged hair smooth. I opted for the Extreme Red set that cost me about $50. I’ve been using this product once every 1-2 weeks since October 2018 (6-7 months ago) and I still have some left. I have long shoulder/mid back length hair. SO worth the money.

This time I decided to try the Purple For Brown Hair color. Overtone offers a custom color kit with the Extreme Red and Extreme Purple color together and it looks amaze-ballz.

Ok, so I’m using the Purple For Brown color which could turn out a little different than what’s pictured.. I’ll update as soon as I can 🙂

Following are not affiliate links: I just really like this brand

https://overtone.co/ – they offer a ton of color options! Super quick and easy to use. I leave on my treatment for 5 minutes or less. Make sure to use gloves. Also, wipe down your shower afterwards.

Overtone Review:

You guys. I did it.. and I can’t. I love Overtone. I washed my hair last night and left on the treatment for less than 5 minutes. Check out my hair this morning:

Enjoyee Hair Dryer Brush""“>Enjoyee Hair Dryer Brush


This one was a little treat for myself on Mother’s Day! I recently cut my hair into long layers and I left the salon with silky smooth straight hair. Once I washed it, my hair went back to its frizzy damaged old self. I have a lot of hair, it’s just really thin. With years of at-home bleaching and years of perms and stuff, the ends are just always frizzy. I’m able to tame it down a bit with a straightener but it’s just not the same as getting a blow out from a salon. My hair looks a lot more polished when it’s curled but realistically, what mom of three has time for that? I’m tired of having my hair in a messy bun 24/7 so I’m trying this dryer brush. *Crossing Fingers*

Review: This brush saves me SO much time guys. It’s a dupe of the Revlon dryer brush which is currently priced at $47 on Amazon. I spent $35.00 on this and it was worth every penny. The ends of my hair are always pretty frizzy and this brush plus a small amount of defrizzing product solves all my hair issues every morning.

Bear Essentials Microfiber Camping and Travel Towel

I just received this lightweight travel towel from Bear Essentials in Teal. Saving it for this Memorial Day! Hoping to get some good use out of this at the pool. #ad

Furbo Pet Camera

Furbo was released in 2016 and honestly I don’t know what took me so long to get one. I just received mine yesterday and absolutely love it! Video quality is good. Audio is clear. App is easy to use and the Furbo is really easy to set up. Connect the Furbo to your wifi at home and you can watch your pet from anywhere. What I really like about the Furbo is that it has a “bark alert” and you can set your setting to high (sensitive to sounds) or low (not so sensitive to sounds. We needed this because our fur baby starts howling within 10 minutes of us leaving the house. There’s a 2-way speak and mic function and you can throw your pup some treats at any time. The only downside is the price. $200-250 is a little much for the average person – my suggestion: search on eBay, Craigslist, LetGo or somewhere similar for a gently used one.

7Senses Hanging Toiletry Bag

We travel quite a bit – nothing major overseas, just weekend getaways with the family to San Diego, Palm Springs, Vegas, and San Francisco. Ever since I discovered the hanging toiletry bag I can’t be without one on my trips. These types of bags can hang easily in the bathroom and can hold so much! (Kids, husbands, and my things). The exact one I have is pictured above!
