While it is true that being a stay-at-home mama gives me the flexibility to shop any day of the week and avoid the crowds. Sometimes, I wait until the weekend to do my shopping, like most normal people. Why? Because most deals are available on these days! Especially when it’s a holiday weekend.
In preparation for the Valentines Day school party, my oldest and I decided to do a DIY t-shirt. Our Valentine’s Day included quite a few DIYs! Did you check out the Backyard photo shoot I did with the girls?
Back to the t-shirt! I had seen a fairly easy tutorial on Pinterest. So, after looking over the instructions, we headed to Hobby Lobby for some supplies! And bought a Gildan brand Youth Small Short Sleeve T-Shirt and a Pink Fabric Creations Soft Fabric Ink.
I love making and eating pasta dishes. They are delicious and usually quick to make. This Shrimp Scampi is not the exception. It was ready, from start to finish in under 30 minutes.
I started by cooking the pasta according to the instructions on the package.
Last year we bought a Sony Alpha 6000 and it is the best camera I have ever had. I have used it for parties, vacations, daily adventures, and my personal favorite, at home photo shoots. I have also done mini sessions with my iPhone (I might share these at a later time) but I love my camera.
With Valentine’s day approaching, I decided to do an impromptu photoshoot of my littles. It was super easy to set up and it took under an hour to photograph both girls, together and separate. You can do the same with these simple steps.
Honestly, I don’t wear make up 90% of the time but I do carry a few beauty essentials in my make up bag; especially on special events. As Valentine’s Day draws closer, I wanted to share some of the products I am crushing on and some that I have on my wish-list.
I have always been a little hesitant to use bold color but when I found NYX Cosmetics’ Soft Matte Lip Cremes, I snagged two colors; Ibiza and Prague. I am slowly adding more to my collection because I am seriously crushing on these.
