Five on Friday...Recent Finds and Favs
I came across the divine Jami Ray a few days ago and I've been pouring through her blog ever since. From the moment I saw the Flamingo Birthday Party invitation, I was hooked and couldn't get enough. It doesn't help she lives in my favorite area of Florida (30A Gulf coast) and she has amazing style, all kinds of great articles, and her daughter is simply adorable. A fun new read (for me at least) worthy of some browsing I assure you.
BFF Meg told me about this eyeliner last week and said she knew I would love it, so I stopped by the store and grabbed some when I ran out of my go-to version. Hands down, AMAZING and I've been converted to this version. It stays ALL DAY with no smears and smudges, and it's under $10 (you can find it here). Yes, I love it when I find a good beauty remedy that's easy on my wallet.
I'm all about asking for help and using other's successes when it comes to beating the baffling world of toddlers. They are crazy and they can change their mood within 2 seconds flat...from face down on the floor because you won't let them carry around a razor (yes this happened the other day) to happy-go-lucky once the sobbing stops, there is NEVER a dull moment with a two year old by your side. I found this article via Cloudy with a Chance of Wine regarding effective ways to get your toddler to brush their teeth and it's helped us with Caroline's not so fondness with this daily activity.
Has anyone else noticed how many ladies have AMAZING songs out right now?? I've downloaded all of these goodies to my iPod for workout time and they are awesome musicals to keep you moving and grooving...and if you see me singing loudly at the gym, pay no attention :).
I love everything and anything personalized and I recently stumbled upon the easiest site to customize gift tags, address labels, water bottle labels/cupcake toppers, and anything of the sort known as iCustom Label. The process is so simple...you upload any image you'd like to incorporate, type in your specific info, and they send you a proof prior to printing. I chose these to use for my business activities and such and they have been a tremendous help already! Even better, my friends at iCustom Label have offered to give away $25 worth of products to one lucky reader, so you can enter to win below.

As for me, this long-awaited weekend will be spent savoring the last bit of summer with my family, making the most of this precious pool time, sitting back and watching some college football (GO VOLS!), cooking out, and venturing to the zoo. Have a fabulous Labor Day weekend friends!! OXOX
