Easter Gift Guide 2017

If you are a busy mom like me there is a chance that Easter has totally snuck right up on you and you are scrambling to get some ideas together for your kiddos Easter baskets! {Please tell me I'm not the only one.} So as I'm shopping around online for some ideas and to make a shopping list I thought I'd put together this mini post to share with you some of my ideas!

Easter Bunny Dress Basket 2017

Daphnie is almost 7 years old {her birthday is next month! ahhhhhhhh I am so far behind on party planning!}. She is all over the place as far as what toys she likes.  American Girl™ is always a favorite. Every time she gets her allowance saved up she wants to go straight to the American Girl™ store. Since I have no time to get to the AG store, I will end up ordering on Amazon. {gotta love that 2-day shipping!}

 Daphnie got one of the Wellie Wishers™ Dolls from Santa this year and she loves it. If you haven't seen them yet, they are smaller than the original 18-inch AG dolls. She loves their books and the stories they have, so I will definitely be adding to her collection for Easter. We will also be going on a spring break road-trip East next week, so a new book will be great for the ride! is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to

  Here are my top picks for American Girl™ items!

If your kids are anything like mine, they are all about blind bags! Daphnie went through the whole Shopkins™ craze, since then she has moved onto NumNoms™ which are so cute! If I were to play with toys, these would definitely be the ones I'd choose, they are so cute and smell delicious! These will make great filler items in her Easter Basket!

There is one final thing I want to include in her Easter Basket and that is one of these 'adult coloring books' I'm not sure what makes them more adult than child, but Daphnie loves them. She has one that I take with us everywhere in my purse and she loves it! I figure I'll grab another one that we can keep in the car for road trips!

Hopefully this helps some of the last-minute moms out there like myself!

 Happy Easter!

Back to School in Style!

It's that time of year! Summer is slowly winding down and the school supplies are out. If you are like me and don't want to be picking through all of the 'supply leftovers' after they are picked over then the time to shop for school supplies is NOW! Like literally right now...
I must admit that this year I did most of Daphnie's school shopping online. We have been so busy trying to fit in as many summer activities as we can before school is back in session...that I knew it would be hard to get out to actually shop. 
Here are our a few of Daphnie's must-haves for her back to school style! {this blog contians affiliate links even though all opinions are our own. please read our policies for more information}
Backpacks If you follow along you probably know by now that we are pretty big fans of Joyfolie! This year they have the cutest backpacks, I mean who doesn't need velvet, gold sequins and leather tassles all on one bag!?

Daphnie's Magical Unicorn Birthday Pool Party

One of my many hobbies is party planning! I get to do it once a year for Daphnie's birthday and we have so much fun doing it! This year the theme was Unicorns, which are all the rage at the moment. I love how everything turned out! 

Daphnie's Outfit: As soon as I saw this dress launch on Joyfolie's site (here) I knew it was going to be perfect for her party, and for every day for the rest of the summer pretty much! The fabric is amazing, so soft and comfortable. Perfect for warm summer days! Buy it here: Joyfolie

The Cake: I learned a LOT making this cake. This is round 2; I made a practice cake for her actual birthday. The decorations on the first one were better, but cake/smoothing was better on this if I could just put everything I learned when making each together, I might actually have a pretty decent cake!  Since I am absolutely horrible at fondant, I tried my hand at buttercream smoothing, this one turned out really well and I really like it! I will definit…
