Holiday, Kids

Best Gift for 10 Year Old Girls!(Or anyone really)


Ok! First of all I hope everyone out there had a great holiday!! I could not have imagined my Daughter’s reaction to the Fuji Instax Mini 9 camera. She actually cried with joy! I have never seen her have that reaction to a gift before and it was so sincere. I knew I had to let you all know about it!

Isabella literally proceeded to capture the entire day in photos. This camera prints mini instant picture just like the old Polaroid cameras from when I was a child. You can find all different “packages” available. The one Santa 😉 choose was the package pictured above with the camera, camera case, photo book, picture frames, different colored lenses, batteries, film and stickers. you can also just get the camera too, here. So cute! It also comes in many colors to choose from and all the accessories are available separately as well.

I would highly recommend this gift for any little girl (or boy) on your life!!

Making memories!!

Holiday, Kids

Winter Concert #OOTD

It’s that time of year when all the kids have Holiday/Winter Concerts!  Not sure if this has happened to anyone else, but I hate when I “missed” the flyer detailing what the dress code is for the concert and then find it 3 days before the concert…….  Yep, that’s what happened here!  To make things worse she does not have any of it in her wardrobe that fits……. This concert is calling for 2 outfits, a festive outfit for during the day concert for the other students and a black & white outfit for the evening concert for the parents.  Really!!  Why two different outfits??

Anyway, Target to the rescue!!  When can’t you count on Target?! Their Cat & Jack line for girls is everything!  I love that they are so fashion forward and also have an amazing basics area for leggings & tees. They also offer a great selection of socks and underwear.

So, as I said above, they really came through for us to be concert ready this week.  See Bella’s outfit choices below.
