Travel Time

It’s that time of year where it’s starting to warm up and people are thinking about their Summer travel plans. I’ve come across some great apps and sites in my recent searches for travel info so thought I would share them with you guys. is for last minute hotel deals at seriously reduced prices. If your travel plans are somewhat flexible or you like spontaneous trips away then this site woud definitely be worth checking out.

The AirportParking app on iTunes can save you a decent amount of money on parking. It may not be as close but usually offers shuttle service if it’s not within walking distance to the airport.

If you’re driving anywhere this Summer then the GasBuddy app on iTunes is going to be well worth it to you. It shows you the nearest gas station as well as the location with the cheapest gas in your vicinity.

The Oanda Currency Converter app will be very useful if travelling abroad. I use this when I take trips back home so that I don’t pay more for something there than I would here. This keeps up to date on the exchange rate so will give you a very accurate results. will show you the nearest chain restaurants that have great deals or free meals for kids.

At you can search by your budget. If you have $350 to spend on a trip then you can input your budget and it will show you ALL destinations within that price range. Perfect if you’re just not quite sure where you want to go.

Do you know of any other travel apps or sites that might be helpful to other readers?

Makeup Monday

Makeup look of the day:-

Create the look with these products –

I came across this site and saw this beautiful idea for a bridal shower. Having 2 daughters and being a girly girl myself I immediately thought of ways it could be tweaked so to be used for other events also. You can see the full post here. The site also has tons of ideas for other themed parties such as kids parties, baby showers and holiday parties.

For those of you looking to live with less chemicals in your life there’s an excellent article on The Honest Company’s site. You can read it here. In it they answer the question What is Behentrimonium Chloride?

ThredUp and OOTD

As the season is about to change I have started clearing out some of my kids winter clothes that I know they are about to outgrow and won’t fit them next year. I usually take the pieces that are still in good condition to the consignment shop but a few months ago I came across a company called ThredUp. They are an online children’s clothing consignment shop. I was thrilled that I would not have to drag heavy bags to my local consignment shop anymore, but instead pop them in to the large bag that you order from ThredUp which includes a pre-paid shipping label! Genius! I go online to USPS, schedule a pick up and leave it on my front porch. I have found that a bag will hold roughly 35 items of clothing. If you order something from ThredUp’s web site you will get your clean out bag for free, if not you pay a $4.95 fee that is REFUNDED to you once you send the bag back full of clothes. Usually when I check in with my local consignment shop my average payoff is around $10… last payoff at ThredUp for 1 bag was $30! I suggest you guys check it out. You can find them here. Happy shopping!

Here are a few items currently for sale on

They recently started accepting junior sized clothing and will soon be accepting women’s clothing – YAY!

This is my personal opinion and I am not being paid for this post – in fact ThredUp has no idea I am even writing about them 🙂

Now on to my ootd:


This is not today’s ootd but it is the ootd that I have chosen to post as today I am sitting in a sweatshirt with my children’s elementary school logo on it and a pair of velour Juicy Couture sweatpants in a completely contrasting color…, I didn’t think you’d want to see that either ; }

So anyway……
