Have You Heard of



This is the homepage right now to my favorite site, Solutions. I love this website because it has just about everything I could want. They have great things for the house including outdoor gear, decoration, storage, furniture, kitchen stuff, gadgets, clothing, seasonal items, and SO much more. Honestly, the list goes on and on.

You can also check out their outlet page for some serious savings. I’ve gotten a number of items for myself as well as countless gifts for others. They have some really creative and unique items that you can’t find just anywhere!

Can you see that Volkswagen vintage van on the homepage? I love it! Check out this website for endless great products.

Best Buy Mobile is Where It’s At!



As you know from my last post, I am getting a new phone soon! I am really excited. After doing a little more research, I am NOT going to stop into my local Verizon Wireless store and get my phone. Instead I am going to order a phone from Best Buy Mobile.

They carry phones and plans from all of the big carriers: Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint, and T Mobile. One of the phones I was looking at in the Verizon Store and the Samsung Note II is $299.99. The SAME phone at Best Buy Mobile is only $199.99! Can you believe that? I would’ve spent an extra $100 for the same phone! I’m SO glad I found out about Best Buy Mobile.

I’m Getting a New Phone…and Searching for Phone Cases!

My 2-year phone contract is up in just a few short weeks with Verizon Wireless. I really like this company and am going to renew my contract. However, I think it’s time for a new phone. I currently have an iPhone 4S and am trying to decide what to get next. I really like a lot of things about my current phone, but there are just a few things that I don’t like. I wish that iPhones had batteries that weren’t built-in. I wish I would be able to just replace the battery on it instead of getting a whole new phone when it needs a new battery.

I think that I’m going to get the Samsung Note II and see how I like it. I’ve been debating between that and the Samsung Galaxy S4. 

Since I will be getting my phone in the next  couple of weeks, I decided to order a case for it online. I can find WAY better deals on Amazon then getting the case in the store. What do you think of this case?


Shopping for Wedding Invitations Online



I was asked to be the maid of honor next summer as my best friend marries the love of her life. I could not be more honored OR excited. I’m really stepping into this wedding planning role with her, because she has so much going on right now and I love to help out!

She already has the venue picked out and reserved, her dress picked out, and the meal chosen. Now it’s time to secure in some of the other details. We decided to start looking at wedding invitations!

There are HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of wedding invitations all over the place. I prefer to look online to I can narrow down my search criteria. I came across this site called Zazzle and really like the products they have to offer, not only for wedding invitations but for all things wedding. This one pictured above is one of my favorites because it’s simple and cute.

Can you find some cute invites on here?

Time for Facials in Orange County

Online shopping sucks me in all the time. I jump from one site to another finding great deals and comparing prices. Before I know it a few hours have gone by and  I am late making dinner or for an appointment. I recently bought some new cosmetics online and I love the line, it is from Europe, Boots is the brand. I have super sensitive skin so finding products that I can use is a challenge sometimes. The boots line has not cause any problems yet though so I think I am on to something.


I have tried some anti-aging and wrinkle creams that really make my skin react. An eye cream is what I really need because my crows feet are starting to show and that is a hard one because eyes are very sensitive anyway. I am currently using the Boots 7 serum and I love it! After awhile I will get another boots product to try, I like to introduce creams very slowly to my face so I know what is giving me the reactions. When I get a bad reaction I rely on a special treat for my face. The best way to remedy a reaction is with Facials Orange County style. They just seem to get it right and my face calms down in a day. After that I know to stay far away from that particular cream.
