Hosting A #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate Party

This post was sponsored by Disney Moms and Disney Parks. I was provided supplies to host my party, but have not been compensated in any other way.

We are a huge Disney family and while I think my kids and husband just love Disney by default because I'm Disney obsessed, we are definitely all about that mouse! While we've never officially been to any Disney parks, yet, that doesn't make us any less of a fan. As a matter of fact, when you ask anyone about our family, they will tell you how Disney obsessed we are. Just because you've never been to a Disney park, doesn't mean you aren't a true fan! My husband and I had a Disney themed vow renewal last fall for our 10 year wedding anniversary, and recently, my daughter was given an assignment in school to choose a public figure and do a presentation in front of the class on that figure. Of course she chose Walt Disney. 

So when we were given the opportunity to host a Disney Kids Preschool Playdate Party, we were beyond excited! We've been heavily planning a Disney World trip for October 2018 and we are already hyped up for that so planning this party just hyped us up even more.

The Innovative New Way To Apply Your Makeup

I have cosmetic brushes galore, and when it comes to applying my foundation especially, I've tried it all. Silicone applicators, brushes, sponges, my fingers... Yeah, I've tried them all. The verdict has been that brushes tend to cover better than the rest simply because sponges absorb your foundations, fingers have too much oil in them to blend properly, and those silicone applicators make my face feel like I've shellacked 10 layers of paint on my face and my pores can't breathe, although, I will say, you definitely use less product with the silicone applicators. So generally, my go-to applicator for my liquid foundation is a brush. So when I discovered that Michael Todd Beauty came out with a cosmetic brush, I was intrigued. Have I told you that I'm a Michael Todd Beauty fan? Well I am. Their Soniclear cleansing brush is used daily along with their charcoal gel cleanser. Their products are just extremely well made, high quality, and effective.

I got my advanced reader copy of the most adorable book ever recently. Ellie The Wiener Dog is a cute little pup that teaches children life lessons, in her fun, fully illustrated books written by K.J Hales with vibrant illustrations by Serene Wyatt. 

In her second book, It's Hard To Swim, Ellie is faced with a new environment when she chases her ball onto a dock and her humans urge her to jump in and splash around.

This month's BookCase.Club bos certainly did not disappoint. It was like a bonus this month, because the first book in the box actually has three books in one, meaning that the Young Adult BookCase.Club box technicaly had 4 books in it! I mean, no complaints here! The more reading material, the better!

April 2017 Degustabox

It's Degustabox time again! Huzzah! I'm a little late getting to the box this month because we have been super busy. Of course, we were prepping for Easter, but we also have a Disney Kids Preschool Playdate coming up, a few family trips, conventions, photoshoots, cookouts, birthdays, and a beach vacation in Hilton Head. So needless to say, I've been up to a lot and now I'm a little behind on things. It happens. This is a busy time of year for us.

Disney Princess PleyBox

Not only am I a huge Disney nerd, but my favorite Disney movie of all time is Beauty and the Beast. So what happens when I get contacted by a company wanting me to give their Disney Princess Beauty and the Beast themed box a try? I jump right on that!
