Hair Tie Wonderfulness

I love my hair ties. I have at least one or two on my wrist at all times.... all times. You never know when it's going to get too hot, or too windy, too flay, too frizzy, you name it.. it can and probably will happen.

I've been making my own hair ties for a while and I love them. They don't get stuck in my hair, and they don't pull my hair out when I take my hair down. I can wear a tie that blends into my hair coloring or find a cute brihgtly colored one when I feel like being a little more bold.

I have sold my hair ties at craft fairs, I have given them as gifts and everyone seems to love them, so I thought I'd post a link to my Etsy shop so you can check them out too! They are A LOT cheaper than buying them in store. :)

Spring Organizing Desk Drawer Edition

Sometimes when you are in a rush, or just being lazy, you just toss things in the drawer they belong into instead of putting away in the drawer. We've all been there, it's ok to admit it... I do it all the time. But no more. A few weekends ago I went to the Container Store and bought some these little beauties when they were on sale (and guess what they are still on sale here.

These great little containers are called Linus™ Shallow Drawer Organizers and they are a staple at The Container Store so even if you miss the sale you can always go and buy them full price.... or wait for them to go on sale again.

Here is my desk drawer before:

It's not terribly messing, but not wonderfully organized either.

So I cleared everything out of the drawer.

I played around with how I wanted my containers to fit in that drawer and started to place everything back in. Sorry no picture here, I didn't think ahead.

And TA-DA.... here is the after! What do you think. Every single thing I pulled out of that drawer I put back in.

It took minutes to clean this drawer out... really. It was so easy and really fun!

I may need to stock up on more of these containers for other drawers in the house. I think I hear the the bathroom drawers asking me to rescue them next.

No excuse to miss breakfast anymore!

I've always been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day....and it is. It give you the energy to go,go,go! Being a teacher, I need all of the energy I can get.

I am one of those people who get up, get dressed and I'm out the door in the morning, skipping breakfast and having a snack at 10. Well not anymore.

The hubby got me an Oster My Blend for Easter and I have been using it during the school week every single day. It's pretty amazing. It's a mini blender however it blends into the tumbler you drink out of. So you blend, put the top on and go.

I thought I'd show you what I do to get everything ready for my morning breakfast smoothies.

They have a few colors to choose from. The hubs got me pink as you can see.

First I chop up all of my fruits and veggies

Then I scoop some into snack sized zipper baggies.

Here are all of my baggies.

Before I zip them closed a push all the fruit and veggie goodness towards the bottom of the bag. This is an important step. I do this, so after the baggies are frozen, I can open them up and slide out the frozen fruit and slides it easily into the tumbler without having to brake it apart to make it fit.

Then I pop them into the freezer.

Come morning, all I do is put a little OJ in the tumbler with one of the baggies of fruit/vegs, blend and a few seconds later I screw on the tap and I'm out the door.

If you live in Texas HEB has these little Oster My Blend Blenders and right now there is a coupon for $10 off. If not, I linked you to their website at the beginning of this post!

New Design

I've been playing around with a new layout for the blog as well as a new design. I'm not completely happy with it, but this is what it's going to look like for now. There are few little glitches I need to work out with the header. Stay tuned.

Ipsy Bag came

So I love trying out new beauty products and joining $10 monthly subscriptions are great. I get delux samples and sometimes full size products I can test out before deciding if it's something I REALLY want to spend my hard earned money on.

I only subscribe to two different ones at the moment. Birchbox and I just started .

I love exploring all of these new products and it saves me a lot of money on buying things that end up not working out!

Here's what I got in this month's ipsy bag.

Be A Bombshell Blush- full size (has a hit of shimmer perfect for spring and summer)-tried it and I love the light pink with a hint of shimmer it leaves.
MicaBeauty Mineral Eyeshadow- delux sample size (which will last for months and months) -haven't tried this yet
Sexy Hair Powder Play- delux sample (great for travel) -I'm saving this for my trip to CA in October.
Sation Nail Lacquer- full size - haven't tried yet, but will be my next polish of choice. I'll post a photo when I repaint my nails.
Cute white bag

Not too shabby for $10 right?

What subscription services do you belong to?

My first Run/Race

I am running my first race, the 5K9 race. I am running with one of my 2 dogs. The race is to help raise money for the Petco Foundation to help out our furry friends. It's such a great cause and it feels great to do something good to help out animals in need.

If you'd like to help out to, click the link below and donate. Every little bit helps and all donations of $25 will get their Tax receipt.

Thank you so much for your support and donation.
