We Heart Uggs

My beautiful sister gave Peyton her first Ugg boots for her birthday!  And let me tell you, she loves them just as much as her mama love Uggs! 

Since Peyton has her Uggs, I think its time for Mama to get some 2011 Uggs!

Here are the ones I am thinking about.

Short Classic Sparkles How jazzy! I already have classic black short ones but these are so fun. They are $170

Lattice Cardy  I love both the up and down looks!  They are $140
Classic Short in Turkish Tile  Or should I just go for the classics in a fun color that you can still wear with everything.  $160

If you don't have a pair of Ugg boots you need to get you some asap!  I don't know what I did in the fall/winter before Ugg boots!  I started wearing them in 2003 and haven't looked back!

Baby Products for Less

I can not say how much I am in love with these diapers!  I first tried them when Peyton was 3 months, after I ran out of my shower and box of Luvs I purchased before she was born.  They cost $6.50 vs $10 and $12 for the name brands.  That is almost half price!  I have never had a problem with blow outs or pants getting wet with these.  If you have not tried them, GET THEM NOW!  Thank me later : )

I know what your saying... I want the best for my baby and how can this be it.  I said the same thing until I took Peyton to her 9 month visit and I was complaining to the Dr. how much formula was.  She told the medical assistant to hook me up with some samples.  The Walmart brand was one of them.  I compared the ingredients to Good Start and Similac we had at the house... SAME STUFF!!!  Again and HALF THE PRICE!  A 24oz can will run you about $11 or $12.  Peyton didn't miss a beat with this.  Now if you baby has special nutrition needs this may not work for you but if you don't try it!

3. Disposable Baby Spoons. 

You can get these at Dollar Tree... My Fav Spot! Throw a pack in the diaper bag and you don't have to trip when you loose a few.

4. Store Brand Wipes
Target Up and Up wipes.  Now I do like the thick Huggie wipes but at the same time, your wiping poo!  So long as its unscented and hypo and won't rip, I am down! 

5. Baby Detergent
I am sure like me, yall all went out and bought Dreft to wash baby clothes.  Well Dreft is super expensive!  I finally found the All Baby!  You get twice as many loads out of one bottle and still has the baby fresh scent.  Or you can just skip the baby detergent and get the Free and Clear products and use it for all your clothes.

I was using the Aveeno Night Time wash which I LOVE but its expensive, like $7!  I like to make Peyton a lot of bubble so I used it up to fast.  So I decided to try this.  Smells good and Peyton still goes to bed on time : )

I hope these are helpful!  Please share if your go to items that save money!

***These are my opinions on products that I purchased.  I was not compensated for this post. ***

Love the tropical look!  Peyton is wearing a shirt from Old Navy that was a gift.  Khaki shorts are from a consignment shop, I paid $2.  She is wearing her Carters shoes.

On Sunday Peyton went to church looking like a Little Lady.

This dress was a gift from my Niece.  How pretty!  Peyton was spinning in her dress showing it off.  Handbag and shoes from Payless.

DVF Dresses, Gucci Bags and Tattoos

I love Diane von Furstenberg dresses

I love Gucci!

and Tattoos!

Weird right!  I know all this doesn't go together but oh well!

When I shared 7 things about me I told you I loved Tattoos!  Check out my new Mom Tatt!
Mister doesn't care for tattoos, I think he was a little jello I didn't get his name : )  It's pretty small so I can cover it with a bracelet or watch if I need too.

Do you have a Mom Tatt?  Would you get one? Or do you think it's crazy!!!

Lipgloss & Binky: I Heart....

Sharing with us today is the Fab Super Mom Mimi from Lipgloss and Binky!

I am Mimi from Lipgloss and Binky and at any given time I am likely to love so many things that I can't make sense of them all so I am sharing with you the top 5 things that I am smitten with at THIS moment!!

1.) NAIL POLISH: Not sure when or why I became a nail polish addict, but I think I need help. EVERY time I go in the store I must come out with at least one bottle. I'm not even snobbish about it the $1 bottle is just as good as the $8. My current collection is at 74 bottles and growing. As if the polish wasn't enough I am thinking about investing in a nail stamp.

2.) H&M's Dressing Room: No, not the actual dressing room but this uber fab app on their website that lets you choose your own model and virtually style your outfits ahead of time. If you've ever been in an H&M you understand why this is a helpful tool to help you stay focused and not go bananas. Here is an outfit I put together. Go to their website and play with it.

3.) Flashmobs: Don't shake your head! After the dude on the AT&T commercial. I have become obsessed with doing a flashmob. Fret not, I found one and its going down on July 30. Now I just gotta figure out how to Dougie..everybody love, every, everybody love me!

4.) Running: I have recently been plagued with high blood pressure and cholesterol. In an effort to keep theses nuances at bay I have taken up running. Something special about pushing your body to limits and it not deserting you and leaving you flat on your face. Recently ran a 10K.. a mere 6.2 miles Nonetheless, I am currently training for a half marathon 13.1 miles in November. I've even upped my running gear..check out my latest purchase
that left me wishing I was a Barbie doll and could detach my legs at their joints

5.) Nexxus Pro Mend Treatment: I have yet to try this product because every time I go to the store its sold out. Seeing that it claims to fix 92% of your split ends, what's not to love. Hopefully I can get my hands on some of it soon. I'll definitely rant and/or rave about it on my blog.

Thanks for having me Trina!!

Mimi is Fab!  Thank you so much for sharing!  Let me hold down some of that nail polish!  H&M past the kids dept make me stressed!  I need this app!  I know how to Dougie, let me know when and where!
