New Toys with Walmart // Part 2



HAPPY FRIDAY, FRIENDS! So happy to see the weekend is here! The boys have their last fall ball games this weekend, which is bittersweet. I love watching them play but I'm ready to have a weekend of no plans, you mama's feel me on this one! Lol. We have been lucky to have beautiful weather on game days. Fall hasn't reached Iowa yet, booooo (lol), is it fall weather where you live?

Even though I am so ready for fall weather, I am happy that it's still warm enough for the boys to play outside for as long as they like. Lennox LOVES playing outside and would seriously sleep outside if I let him. Ha! When I saw the Nick Jr. PAW Patrol Chase 6V Plush Electric Ride-On Toy  at Walmart I knew Lennox would love riding it outside. If you're new around here, I just got back from New York last week and Lennox took it very hard. I had extreme mom guilt so I had to get him something special when I got back.



You should have seen his face when he opened the box. It was the cutest ever! I wish I would have recorded it. He loves Paw Patrol and loves ride on toys so it was a definite win-win for this mama. He has been riding it all over outside and inside the house. I know Christmas is just a few months away but I just had to get this for my baby boy to enjoy before it gets too cold outside for him to ride.

If you read my last "New Toys with Walmart" post, you know Walmart has so many amazing new toys for all age groups. Since Christmas is just a few months away, now would be a great time to start shopping. I always say I am going to start my shopping early and never do, but I think this year with all the new toys at Walmart, I'm going to! The Nick Jr. PAW Patrol Chase 6V Plush Electric Ride-On Toy that I got Lennox would be a great gift for your toddler. They have different characters and sizes. The one Lennox has is the smaller version but they do offer a larger one.

So mama's/dad's if you're looking to start your Christmas shopping early, need a birthday gift, or just want to surprise your little one with a new toy, Walmart is the way to go! I have linked a few of Walmart's new toys down below. :)

XOXO,

Fall Decor Ideas



Happy Friday the 13th, friends! Can you believe it's already September?! That means fall is finally here even if it doesn't really feel like fall outside! Lol. Yesterday I asked ya'll a few questions in my Instagram stories and I was blown away by all the responses I received. Ya'll are seriously the best! One of my questions was, "Would you be interested in Fall/Halloween decor?" 80% of you said yes, so I am here to deliver.

I have found SO many cute fall and Halloween decorations that are currently 25% off with code OPENHOUSE. Now, if you're reading this a few days later, the coupon code will more than likely be expired, but all the items I have linked below are well below $50 without a coupon code. Fall is my favorite season by far so of course I love decorating for it! Most of these decorations can be left out until you decorate for Christmas so if you are like me and decorate early, you can have these up for a couple of months! More time to enjoy them! :)

As always, just click on any of the pictures below to shop. It will take you directly to the item for you to shop! :) Happy Shopping!




XOXO,

New Toys with Walmart


Hi friends! Happy Friday and Labor Day weekend! Can I get an amen to a three day weekend! AMEN! We have a fun and busy weekend planned that I am excited to enjoy with family and friends. To kick off the weekend, yesterday was Lennox's last day at his "baby school" and on Tuesday, he will start at his "big boy school," 3 year old preschool. Que the mommy tears! Since Lennox did such a great job at his "baby school" for the past 1.5 years, I got him a surprise!

Walmart has always been my go-to place when shopping toys for my three boys. They have the best selection and are always getting new toys. I was so excited to see that Walmart is now carrying Ryan's World toys. Lennox is obsessed with watching him on Youtube so he was SO excited when he saw the surprises I got him.

The Ryan World Toys are so fun for kids because it's a surprise in itself! Lennox loved getting to see what were in the "Smashin' Surprise Safes" and had so much fun doing it as you can see! It includes 5 safes for your little one to smash open with the toy sledgehammer that is also included, to find toys inside the toy safes. So fun, right?!


The other surprise I got Lennox from the new toys department at Walmart was another Ryan's Toys, toy! This one is the "Ryan's World Mystery Figs." If your little one watches Ryan on Youtube you know exactly what I am talking about. Lol. They are little figurines for your child to recreate their own surprise toys review. It is so cute to watch Lennox play pretend with them!


As you can see in the pictures, Lennox LOVED his surprises from the new toys department at Walmart.  If you're looking for a present or just a fun surprise for your little one, Walmart has a great selection! I have linked a few of their new toys down below that are now available to purchase.

Favorite Dry Shampoo with Walmart



Hey friends, hey! If there is one beauty product I cannot live without, it would be dry shampoo! Anyone else?! I swear it is such a life saver especially for us busy moms. Today I am partnering with Walmart, again, to share my top three dry shampoos. From high end to drug store price! All three are great and that I use weekly.

I started using dry shampoo about 8 years ago after having my second child. I use to wash my every.single.day! I am not kidding, it was every day! Well, when I became a mom of two, there was no time to take a 25 minute shower so I knew I had to do something to cut the time in half. I started using dry shampoo and my shower time was cut in half! Whoo hoo! Since then I only wash my hair twice a week and I swear the dry shampoo is the MVP for that!

Since I have used dry shampoo for 8 years, I have been trial and errors when it comes finding the right shampoo that works best for my hair type. There are so many dry shampoos out there because they truly are all different. Some leave too much residue, smell awful, and/or just don't get the job done! So with all the trial and errors that I have had over the years, I think I have found my top three that I love and so excited to share with you!

1.) My hands down favorite dry shampoo of all time is Living Proof's, Perfect Hair Day. The name says it all because you really will have a perfect hair day with this dry shampoo. It smells amazing and just leaves my hair feeling clean and very fresh. I try not to use this everyday because it is on the pricier side for a dry shampoo. Walmart's price is actually cheaper than any other retailer!


2.) The second dry shampoo that I have loved for many years is the Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Dry Shampoo.  I love this dry shampoo because it works amazing and is under $5! The bottle is big so it will last you a long time. What I love most about it is how is a texturizing spray as well as dry shampoo. Since I do have fine hair, I love the way this makes my hair fuller and after curling, it really makes the curls look great! It also smells like toasted coconut and who doesn't want their hair smelling like that?! Lol. 


3.) The last dry shampoo that I am sharing is the Hask Thickening Dry Shampoo.  I have been using this one for about 6 months so it is fairly new to me compared to the other two. I LOVE this one because it definitely does it's job, absorbs oil and freshens your hair. It also puts a lot of volume in your hair, which I need because of my fine hair! I will be honest, it doesn't have a "clean" smell like the other two. It smells like hairspray at first but then it goes away.



There ya have it! My top three dry shampoos. I highly recommend all three but please keep in mind, what works for me, may not work for everyone. I have also linked a few of my other favorite beauty products from Walmart down below. :)

Fall Look with Walmart





Happy Friday, friends! :) I am partnering with Walmart again to bring you an adorable and affordable fall look! Fall is right around the corner and I could not be happier about it! Fall is my absolute favorite season! What's not to love about fall?! Fall candles, PSL, fall decor, oh and my favorite...fall clothing! Nothing makes me happier than walking outside to 50-60 weather while wearing booties and a PSL in my hand! :)

Ya'll know I have been loving everything that Walmart has been releasing for fall. If you watch my Instagram stories you know I have already been sharing my favorite fall items that Walmart has released. They are SO good this season and affordable, which you know I am all about! ;)



When I first saw this dress, it screamed fall, boho perfection. The red, orange, and purple tones are what fall colors are made of, am I right?! I love the boho feel of this and reminds me of one of my favorite higher end brands but at a a very reasonable price! I paired it with these very comfortable booties that are under $15! Yes, only $15!! They run tts and I cannot stress how comfy they really are! To top off this fall perfection look, I added this adorable wide brimmed hat and black handbag. I thought the hat brought out the wine color prints in the dress and this bag was a the perfect contrast to break up the colors in this dress.

I will say this dress runs tts but the small was still a little loose and long on me. I am 5'3" and normally wearing xs/small in tops and 0/2 in bottoms. It does have a camisole slip, which ya'll know I love when my dresses are lined! This dress could be styled multiple ways with a denim jacket, moto jacket, cardigan, or just as a dress alone. You could also dress it up with a pair of heels or a pair of OTK boots if you are taller.

Now if we could just get the weather to start changing to cooler temps, I would be set! :) I have everything linked above and I also linked a few other fall options below. Have a great weekend, friends!

Target Fall Haul // Episode 1



Hey girl hey! Guess what today is?! My 32nd birthday and holy smokes I cannot believe I am 32! Time sure flies when you're having fun! I thought I would upload my Target Try On from last Sunday since today is a fun day! :)

I did a little work wear mixed with my usual casual looks. A few items are not online yet but I will update ya'll in my stories when those items become available. I believe everything is under $30 and all amazing quality!

Before I share, to shop all you have to do is click on the picture of the item. THANK YOU for using my links and supporting my brand. It means the WORLD to me! :) So let's get this try on started.


This is my first work wear look and it does not disappoint! These pants were long on me, I'm 5'3" for reference, so I had to cuff them. They are the PERFECT work wear legging because they are work pant material but made like a legging. Wearing the XS for reference. 
Love the print of this top. The sleeves are 3/4 and ruffled and the top ties into a cute bow at the top. Wearing the XS for reference. 



Same top but different bottoms. This pencil skirt is such a closet staple! It is pull on so very comfortable and doesn't restrict. Wearing the XS for reference. 



Same pants but different top! ;) This top is a little out of my comfort zone but I was very drawn to it or some reason. I love the balloon sleeves and the contrast of it the top. Wearing the XS for reference. 



Same top as above paired with the pencil skirt. Wearing XS in both! 



Last work wear look with the leggings and pencil skirt. I paired them both with this adorable bell sleeve top! Very flattering and comfortable. Wearing XS for reference. 






So this ADORABLE dress could be considered work wear! I am OBSESSED with this dress and so are ya'll because so many of ya'll have purchased it after I posted it earlier in the week. It is so flattering and so comfortable. It has a little tie string in the middle to give shape. Wearing XS for reference. 



Here is another dress option but it isn't available online yet. It does run big but is so cute. Wearing XS for reference. 


Now onto my speed...casual looks! First is this adorable look! Loved this cardigan because of the waffle knit look to it and it was so cozy. Wearing XS for reference. I paired it with a simple white tee (wearing size small) and these dark wash jeans. I have talked about Target's jeans before and I LOVE them. Great fit and so comfy! These are their jeggings. Wearing size 0/short. 



Same jeans, white tee, and cardigan but in a different color. I LOVE this color! It's so much prettier in person. Wearing XS in cardigan for reference. 



Another cardigan that screams fall! This rust color is the fall color! The weight of this cardigan is great to wear now with a pair of denim shorts and transition into fall with leggings or jeans. Wearing XS for reference. Same jeans and white tee as above. 



Same look as above but the cardigan is in a different color. Love this oatmeal color because it's the perfect color to wear year round depending on what you pair it with. Wearing XS for reference. 



The color yellow just isn't for spring and summer! It is a great color for fall, too! This cardigan is a great basic one. Perfect length (covers the booty) and perfect weight. Comes in more color options if yellow isn't your color. Wearing XS for reference. Same jeans and white tee as above. 



Switching gears from cardigans and sharing this adorable camo sweatshirt! It is so cozy and not too heavy so you could wear now with a pair of denim shorts. I did size up to a medium for a more oversized look so I do suggest sizing up 1 or 2. Same jeans as above. 



I forgot about this work wear top after I had already put away the leggings and skirt. This leopard tunic is so cute and would be adorable with leggings. You could transition into fall and winter with a cardigan, blazer, jacket,etc. Wearing XS for reference and same jeans as above. :)




Well girls that's it for this round. I have an Old Navy try on coming next week and that one is even better! I will go to Target in a few weeks, once everything slows down, to do another try on at Target. 
I hope ya'll enjoyed this one! :) 

XOXO,

Back To School with Walmart

 

Hey friends! Happy Tuesday! Can ya'll believe it is already the end of July! Where did the summer go?! We have less than a month left until the boys go back to school. I am sad and happy at the same time. Lol. Since school is starting back very soon, we are slowly getting everything prepared so we aren't rushing at the last minute. I always do that and this year I can say I am ahead of the game because we have already began back to school shopping! Yay!

 

Walmart has not only been killing it in the women's department, but also the kids department. I was able to find so many cute and VERY affordable items for all three of my boys. They all are great quality and the boys love them so it's a definite win in this mama's book! I usually buy more "sporty" clothes, like basketball shorts, t shirts, etc., for my boys because they love to be comfortable but I found some really cute dressier options at Walmart that I just couldn't pass up! Best part, everything I am sharing from the kids department is on sale! The only item that I will be sharing that isn't in the kids department is my oldest son's shoes that are actually men's since he doesn't wear kids shoes any longer ::insert sad face::!

Lennox, 3 years old-size 4t

So first up is my baby :) Lennox's look is actually a set  from the Wonder Nation line, so the shorts and top come as one. It also comes with a another short and top set. You get two outfits for only $18 and you can actually mix and match and get 4 outfits for only $18! Can't beat it! Both outfits are so adorable and fit true to size. His shoes also come from Walmart and are the cutest ever! They are on sale for only $6! His adorable Lion King backpack is SO cute! I love it and it's under $10!

Grant, 8 years old-size 8


How cute is Grant's look?! Very Zac Efron, huh?! ;) Very relaxed but so cute! The Wonder Nation camo shorts he is wearing are pull on which makes them very comfortable for your little guy. They come in 5 others colors and prints, but I was drawn to the camo since he doesn't have pair. They are only $8 and run true to size. I paired the camo shorts with a just a basic black tee that comes in a set of two, so you get a black tee and a white tee. There are other color options as well. Both tees are only $4.75 for both and amazing quality. Super soft and a relaxed fit so they aren't stiff like some t shirts.  His shoes are the same as Lennox's only in the kid section and only and on sale $4! His back is a Marvel backpack and under $10!

Landon, 11 years old-size 10-12


Lastly is my little man ::again insert crying face::! He looks so dang handsome! Landon loved this outfit, which surprised me because it usually a basketball shorts, t shirt type of boy. These cargo shorts are so cute and I love how they are different from the normal khaki color. If you are not into colored shorts, they also come khaki. They run true to size and are a great fit! We paired it with just a basic white polo that comes in a pack of two (white and blue) and run true to size. These polos come in a pack of two for only $7.50 and are perfect if your kid needs them for school uniforms. His shoes are from the men section and are under $16. They run to true to size and a great casual shoe for boys and men! His backpack is the Outdoor brand, which is great for middle school kids and under $10! 

Well, friends I hope you enjoyed today's post. I know it's a little out of the norm ;) but I loved it! I have linked a few girl Back to School Walmart finds down below as well as a few more boy options. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
