StitchFix: My 2nd Fix
Two months ago I signed up for StitchFix and wrote about the pieces I received, the items I kept, the items I sent back and the overall experience. You can read that review here. I received my second fix this month and I have to say, I loved this Fix even more than my first!
I don't know about anyone else out there, but I felt more prepared for Christmas on November 1st than I feel right now, on December 22nd. So much thought has gone into making C's first Christmas special (yes, I know she won't remember a thing, but that's what cameras are for) that now that the day is almost here I don't feel prepared at all.
The holiday season is in full swing. In my previous post I talked about traditions you can start with your family. I left off an important meeting with the "big guy". Meeting Santa for the first time and then visiting him in subsequent years is a fun tradition for kids and parents alike. I have no problem admitting that I would happily visit Santa (without kids) and drag anyone I could get to agree to go with me.
MY FIRST "FIX" FROM STICHFIX
I've seen the StichFix commercials and ads on Pinterest for sometime now and I decided to go ahead and sign up for a "fix". It costs $20 and you can cancel at any time. Worse thing that happens? You hate everything and you're out $20. Best/worst thing that happens? You love it all and are out hundreds of bucks. I like these odds.
LULAROE: PART TWO
Since my first review of LulaRoe I have purchased new items. Their collaboration did indeed bring us Disney prints for Halloween however they did not do Christmas prints, unless you count the Nightmare Before Christmas they released with their Halloween villains collection.
Prior to my pregnancy I liked leggings, during my pregnancy they allowed me to not have to wear maternity jeans and post pregnancy they allow me to not have to buy pants. Ever. Again. I wear LulaRoe leggings and if you are thinking about buying some (or something else) from them, check out my review. Save your "leggings aren't pants" comments because they are not welcome here.
"Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere."
The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown is a tradition I am passing down to my children. This time-honored classic needs to be seen by every generation until the end of time. I am so happy this still airs on prime time TV. This and all of the other Charlie Brown holiday specials.
This weekend we are taking Princess C to our local downtown for some "trick or treating" from shop to shop. Though she may be too small to understand what the heck is going on this is more for mommy anyway!
This holiday season we are going to get to celebrate a TON of first; first Halloween, first Thanksgiving, first Christmas, first New Years and with all of these holidays comes multiple outfits.
What does a 4 month old dress up like for Halloween anyway? Well a pumpkin of course! This costume was actually suggested by my hubby and I think it was a great choice (I just so happened to be a pumpkin for my first halloween).
The best thing I ever did was buy a package from a local photographer to capture the first year of our baby. The package included my maternity session, a newborn session, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year sessions.
Over the weekend we cashed in our 3 month session at an apple orchard. I planned all of our outfits that would create the best fall look, I just never expected it to be 70 degrees when we took the photos. We needed to look the part in the photos but in real time, we were suffering from heat exhaustion!
Nothing screams fall more than chambray shirts and boots! This is exactly what this Gen-Y mama was wearing and Princess C had her chambray shirt to match. The hubby wore a dark blue flannel (poor guy, he was the hottest out of all of us).
Let me first state that I am not, nor am I planning on becoming a seller of LulaRoe. This is an honest review from someone who has bought a few pieces after not being able to escape all of the hype (and Facebook group invites). LulaRoe is the latest craze in semi-affordable fashion. The marketing behind their products is genius. They only print each print about 1,000 times, so when you see one you like, buy it, because you may not see it again.
