More Storage Solutions From INNX #seatbackorganizer

I know that I just posted a few days ago about a set of really nice storage pouches for the car or home from INNX... But here is another one of their products: This one is a bit different. It doesn't have velcro. It has adjustable straps with buckles that wrap around the head rests and seats in your vehicle. Not only that, it is all one piece, and pretty long. It can reach across the back of my mom's van seats in the middle or back row. Her van only has two head rests, but it can attach to as many as three.  There are FOUR big storage areas, and TWO smaller pouches within the middle. This one, in my opinion, is ideal for larger vehicles such as suburbans, bigger vans, trucks.  You can store heavier and larger items in these nets. I think it's great for when you are on the road and travelling. You can store food, drinks, books, movies, toys, diapers, towels. It would be great for camping trips, going to the beach, going to the park, going to a g

Softest Leggings Ever

Fall is finally here in my hometown. Yes, I'm aware that it is practically the end of October, but that's when it usually arrives in this part of Texas. All I know is that I'm just happy to be done with the 108 degree heat! That also means that I need to stock up on warmer clothes! I love leggings. I do. Check my newest pair out below They are so, so, so soft and warm. And I know you guys are probably thinking, leggings are thin and won't keep your legs warm! Well, let me tell you something, these are not your average leggings.  They are not thin and they have a synthetic thermal lining! Wow, right? So yeah. They are perfect for this cooler weather.  They are high waisted, ankle length, super comfortable, stretchy, and seamless. I'm short so I can scrunch them up a little when I don't feel like wearing them high at the waist. Unlike some leggings they are thick enough to be worn as pants, and not see-through. Yay for t

Storage Solutions with This Velcro #StorageNet from INNX

I own a lot of stuff. I do. Always have. Now that I have two kids and I husband, we own a lot more stuff. This is why I'm happy to find products that can provide some extra storage, whether it be in our home or even our vehicle.  These storage nets can be used both ways! These nets will adhere to most carpet-like material in your car, van, or SUV. You can stick it on the back of the seats or wherever that material is.  They attach with the velcro along the sides. No carpet-like material in your vehicle? No problem. You can always purchase really cheap velcro strips at a craft store and attach those to your car first.  Or you can do what I did. They didn't stick too well in my mother's van so I decided to use them in my own home. They hold just fine on the side of one of my couch covers in my living room!  If they are in your car, well, you can store so many different things in them. You can fit glasses, toys, snacks, books, a tablet,

Magnetic Lashes, Oh How I Love You So

I have really long lashes. I mean really, and they're naturally curved upwards already. The problem that I have is that they could use a volume boost.  My mom thinks I'm crazy to even consider using false lashes, but sometimes I just like to add some extra flair to them without having to use a billion coats of mascara. I have used many different brands of false lashes that you glue on, and honestly, more than half the time, I just can't get them on correctly. I end up getting so frustrated and taking them back off. I HATE the way the glue feels afterward too. Yuck. I don't know if you guys have heard all the hype about magnetic lashes. I have been seeing them everywhere on my social media. I saw some really mixed reviews on them, but I just had to try them myself. I was super curious. My opinion on them?? In LOVE.  I mean it. They are soooooo much easier to apply. I can get them on in such a short amount of time. Also, if I don't get

Emoji Earrings Are In

Are your kids into emojis?? Mine are. I'm not exactly sure why. I've seen them everywhere the past few months. I've seen pillows, shirts, blankets, stickers, purses, backpacks, party favors, shoes, jewelry, and even the Emoji movie. What is it about these silly little images? Alright, I'll admit it. I think they are cute. I actually use them quite a bit when I'm chatting with people on Facebook and in text messages... I was sent some really adorable emoji earrings and I wanted to share them with you guys.  These are going to be a Christmas gift for my niece since she LOVES anything with emojis on it. The pack that I received contains 6 pairs, including smiley faces, hearts, cool emoji with sunglasses, laughing face with tears, in love faces, and the very popular poop emoji. Guess which one is her favorite? If you said poop, you're right!!!! Haha.  Don't ask. I just know that it's her fave and my son's fave too. 

No More Buying Batteries For Our Wii Game Controllers

We're video game addicts in this family. Every single one of us in this house. You better believe me when I say that it gets kind of annoying to have to keep buying a ton of batteries for our Wii game controllers. That money adds up, you know? This is why this particular product from  #S miniker  is so great. This is a 4-in-1 Wii remote charger charging station! Yes, it can charge up to FOUR Wii controllers. It works for the Wii and the new Wii U controllers as well. We have two of each. It also comes with the 4 rechargeable battery packs that fit right onto the back of each controller, as you can see demonstrated in the top picture. The charging cable is included as well, and can be plugged into a USB wall adapter or to your computer.  It has this really cool LED lighting  to let you know that the controllers are sitting in the dock properly to charge. It glows red and blue. Also, when you place the controllers in, they sit rather firmly in place and

ClassPass is Not Your Typical Gym Membership #ClassPassSATX

You know, I used to work out a lot before I had my daughter... I used to go to one of the those expensive gyms that sucked you right in and got you stuck in a two year contract.  First off, the fees were pretty ridiculous and there were only so many locations available that were near where I lived. It was a bit of a pain. Not only that. There were times that it would get so crowded at a few of the locations that I visited. That was not very comfortable to me.  I did take classes that were fun, but again, those would get super full and so I had to get there extremely early to make sure that I would be able to have a spot.  Worst part about this whole thing? I ended up being billed after the gym supposedly lost my contract that had ended months prior. It was a whole nightmare. Long story short--I don't plan on going back to that particular big name gym again. In fact, it made me not want to go to a gym for a good while. Now that my daughter is a bit older and a ea

My Daughter's Cool BPA Free Cup #genevieveAvani

So my daughter is rounding two and a half years old. She is growing up so fast. OMG. She wants all her own things these days. Miss Independent. I recently got her this new cup and both her and I love it for many reasons.  Isn't it pretty? First off, I love the pastel green color. On their store page, when you read the description, it says that they picked this color because it makes it easier to see where the cup is dirty. I think it is a very pretty shade of green.  It's also see through so that you can see everything inside of the cup. It comes apart in several different places to make it easier to clean as well. It also comes with a little stainless steel brush for an even more thorough cleaning of the straw. Yes, the straw is detachable too.  It is hygienic. anti-mold and BPA free! Better yet--it's also unbreakable thanks to the fact that it is made from Tritan material. The mouthpiece flips open to drink from and then flips back down

Palazzo Pants are Back! #ZoozieLA

Have you ever or do you currently own a pair of palazzo pants? I never did until a few days ago! I have always seen them on other people and thought,  Omg! Those are awesome! I need some! Well, now I own a pair. These pants have a boho/hippie, funky vibe that I just love so much.  They are oh-so-soft and comfortable. The material is stitched well and it's breathable. I think I can wear these just about anytime of the year in San Antonio. What else is pretty nice is that you don't have to iron them!! Just put them on and go. They can be worn as part of a dressy outfit or something more casual. They look great either way. I picked the navy blue with white paisley but they actually have several different styles and colors that you can pick from. As you can see in the pics, and the video down below, they can be worn a few different ways too. I'm slightly below 5 feet so I can even pull them up further than most people and wear them like a
