All opinions are 100% my own and honest.

With Christmas break these past two weeks I was so excited to have this new game to try out with my son.
This is Dice Alias by Tactic Games
This dice game is actually just one of the many variations of the Alias games, they also have Original Alias, Family Alias, and a junior version.
 If you've seen some of my other reviews of games here on the blog, you know that I love games that I can play with my son that are fun but also educational.
This game definitely fits that category!
Let's take a closer look, shall we?

Halo Birthday Cake

Pin It
Everyone is posting about Christmas crafts, projects, decor, and recipes and I'm over here trying to catch up from almost a month ago...
Oh time, you never fail to amaze me.
Anyways, my oldest turned 7 last month and for his birthday this year he requested a Halo theme.
I have come to rely on this method of cake decorating now that I know how awesome the end results will be.
 What we have here is just tracing frosting on a coloring page.
I have posted this type of tutorial on my blog before for our Avengers CakeStar Wars cupcakes, and Lego Star Wars cake.
 When my son decides on his theme we then turn to Google and find a coloring page we can use.
Click here to see and print out the coloring page we used for this cake.

I have to admit, I'm pretty excited about this post.
Essential oils have been moving up in popularity over the last few years and it's no surprise why.
I have always wanted to try them, but I never knew where to start, and I never knew which brand to go with.
I saw the opportunity to review this Peppermint oil from Simply Earth and I jumped at the chance.
I did a lot of research before I received this product because I wanted to make sure I knew what I was getting myself into.
First, let's talk about the company.
On the website under 'Our Story' they state that their goal is "...to create high quality products at affordable prices and give back."
That's right, when you purchase a product from Simply Earth 13% of the proceeds go towards their 'Cause of the Month'. This month the proceeds are benefiting The Hope Project this organization helps victims of sex-trafficking with counseling, therapy, and education.

Well Christmas is just over 3 weeks away!
This really is my favorite time of the year. I LOVE planning and finding gifts, especially for my kids.
One of my favorite things is finding something educational, fun, and can be used in different ways.
So today, I am happy to share this review with you, this game fits in all of those categories, and I'll explain why.


The game contains 4 playing boards, 36 animal cards, and an electronic button.
The boards and animal cards are all made of a pretty thick, sturdy cardboard making me think they will stand up to some play :)

No-sew Fold Over Box Clutch Tutorial

Pin It
Last week, before the Thanksgiving break, I was feeling the need to be crafty.
I have had a few things in mind that I have wanted to tackle for a while, but didn't know what I really felt like doing.
Then it hit me.
In a few weeks I will be attending a work Christmas party with my husband, and I get to dress up.
Like dress, heels, hair, make-up.
This happens like once a year folks.
I was getting excited thinking about it, and then I realized that I didn't really want to take my big mom purse that doubles as a 'diaper bag' with me, but I wanted something small and chic to carry my phone, lip gloss, gum, etc.
I realized that I don't have anything that fits that category, at all.
I had thought about making something like this a while ago, and I already had all of the supplies on hand, so I figured if it didn't work out I had at least tried.
Well, I am happy to report that I LOVE the way this turned out, and I will definitely be using this clutch on our night out :)
So here is what we started out with.
Glue gun, Mod Podge, fabric, and cardboard.
