Annie Musical Tour,
I received tickets to see Annie. All opinions are my own. This blog contains affiliate links.

When I was ten-years-old for my birthday I received a record player and an Annie record. I would spend days lying in my room belting out Annie tunes. Annie holds a special place in my childhood and I'm excited to take my family to see the Annie Musical Tour at the Fox Theatre in Detroit, Michigan!

Stitch Fix December

I haven't received a Stitch Fix in quite some time. I think I forgot about the great quality that Stitch Fix brings to the table. My stylist for Stitch Fix December was Sarah. How did she do? Read and find out!

How Does Stitch Fix Work

How does Stitch Fix work? Stitch Fix is a styling service. When you request a box, the stylist will look at your Pinterest board, that you will set up, to find out your personal style. The stylist picks out five pieces to send you. The five pieces are to update your wardrobe and get you to step out of your "regular" style box. The cool part is you can try on the clothing in the comfort of your home and keep them for up to three days. If you end up purchasing nothing, you only pay a $20 styling credit. If you buy any of the items, the $20 styling credit is applied to your purchase. If you purchase the entire box, you receive a 25% discount. The best deal is when you keep the whole box.

Stitch Fix Styles

Are you ready to see my Stitch Fix Styles? Well, here goes!


Style Cards


This lovely sweater is 41Hawthorne. I wasn't that fond of the texture, but I loved it on, and it looked great with a black pair of jeans. My hair is currently red, so I loved this color with my skin tones.

Status: Kept




In the above picture, I'm wearing Olive & Oak. I fell head over heels with this shirt because it has the lace back. I had never seen a flannel with lace back, so I loved the touch of girly that shirt brought.

Status: Kept


The red vest is Market and Spruce. I had asked my stylist to send me a plaid top and a vest. I loved that look. I adored the vest!

Status: Kept


The jeans are Just Black. They seem to run small, or I have put on a few pounds. Or, it could be a combination of both. I already have a pair of Just Black pull on skinnies. My husband thought if I went a size bigger that they would be too big.

Status: Kept 



The final top was Market and Spruce. As you can see the jeans did not work well with this shirt, because I had a pooch going on.  This shirt is a comfy top that I can see myself reaching for to wear with jeans.

Status: Kept

My favorite two items were the plaid top and vest. Just for the two items, it was probably close to $150. I decided to just purchase the whole box so I could keep the discount. I decided to be kind and save my husband the hassle of Christmas shopping for me. So, I gave him my box to wrap and put under the tree.

2017 Daily Planner     

2017 Daily Planner to Organize Your Life

I'm busy! Yes, I know I only work part-time blogging but with two kids that are involved in after school activities my life is hectic. During the day, I schedule my appointments, manage the household and my small business. After school, I become a taxi cab in the midst of packing lunches and killer math homework. I have a pile of appointment cards already stacked for 2017 and no place to put them. So, I recently purchased a 2017 daily planner to organize my life!

 The Busy Mom

 
This cutie to the left is the 2017 weekly planneracquired for the new year. I selected it because the price was reasonable. It's currently just over $10. Mainly because my 2017 daily planner needs lots of space to write. Since, most days I need to be in multiple places. I liked that each week is broken down and there is lots of room to write notes to myself, so I stay on top of things.
  • The cover features artist Van Gogh.
  • Planner includes 17 months.
  • Storage space to place receipts and appointment cards.
  • Pick your's up today!

Do It All

 

 If you're anything like me, some days you wonder how you even can keep your head on straight. I recently had bronchitis, so mom was forced to take a break. Okay, not a full break because I still caught myself doing silly things like vacuuming up dog hair because I can't stand leaving a mess alone. This 2017 calendar and daily planner are just what you need to keep the family updated when mom doesn't feel well!
  • 300 stickers to mark appointments
  • weekly layout

2017 Daily Planner

Organized in 2017


With my new 2017 daily planner, I can keep on top of what's going on and be prepared for life. I like to know well in advance what's going on so I can mentally prepare for it. Which daily planner would you like to purchase?
