The Gift Guide

What YOU could ask for when someone asks:

These huggie hoop earrings are probably the #1 thing I’d ask for this year, they’re just so dainty and perfect. I have the necklace that matches this “mama” ring and it has held up SO incredibly well. I shower with it on, sleep with it on, swim with it on in the summer, etc. and it hasn’t shown any signs of wear at all. Such great quality for an awesome price.

This. Blanket. Holy cow! Such a cute ‘snuggle on the couch’ throw. Available in several colors, too! It’s on sale right now, but don’t come after me later if the sale ends. Lol.

Any FP bag would make a great gift, even for non-moms. Pro-tip though, their shipping can be painfully slow sometimes, so if you want to be absolutely sure you get your order before Christmas – you can order most of their bags through Amazon and use the free 2-day shipping. There are tons of color options for every style of bag. Here are some Amazon links to their bags –

This hair dryer brush has been a super hot item this year. I have been wanting to try it out for months so I asked for it for Christmas from my Mama this year. Certain colors are cheaper, some are sold out, etc. But definitely check it out if you blow dry your hair a lot.


These beanies are so amazing! Their the closest thing I can find to my favorite beanies from last year that people always ask about. I’ve seen them style by tons of other bloggers and they look really, really similar to mine! Available in 4 colors!

I’m actually wearing this cozy sweatshirt (and the leggings linked below) as I’m writing this blog post. I would buy them  both in every color if I could. I think the sweatshirt speaks for itself as far as coziness/comfort. It’s amazing and has fur in just the right places. And these leggings – They are the most buttery soft, amazing leggings I’ve ever found. Squat-proof, not too hot, they don’t pill at all and they are soon soft. SOOOOO soft. Both the sweatshirt and leggings are available in several colors. I’ll share a few of the colors, but there are tons more!

The leggings –

Can we please talk about how these slippers are this cheap? Plus free shipping? Okay. I’ll take one of every color, I guess (there are tons of colors, I chose shared a few here)!

Black Friday Round-Up!

I’ve rounded up a few black friday sales from retailers/brands that I love and already own. I could have done a round-up of every black friday sale I know of, but that’s not really my style (& that would be really overwhelming).

So, here we go – my top fav Black Friday (week) sales to check out!

As always – you can shop anything and everything I love/own by going to my liketoknowit profile and shopping through the images.


First up – Everything here is 40% off, no code needed! I haven’t seen any exclusions at all. So this is a really good sale! I have way too many items from this retailer to link them all here, but you can scroll my liketoknow.it and see them all, styled in outfits & I share my size info often in the captions over there.

IMG_4984 IMG_4985 IMG_4986 img_4987.png IMG_4988 img_4989.png img_4990.png IMG_4991 IMG_4992 IMG_4193 IMG_4996-2 img_4998-2.png IMG_4995 IMG_4993 IMG_4997-2 img_4994.png


BOGO on my absolute favorite bracelets, how could I not share? These are great for you, your friends, your sisters, teachers, cousins, mom, etc. The quality is amazing and every single one of their styles is really, really versatile! You can also find several IRL pictures of these on my liketoknow.it page & over on Instagram!


One of my absolute favorite cosmetics brands is having 30% off site wide this week, but their products do tend to sell out pretty quick when they have big sales, so you may find that a lot of items are gone at the end of the week. Their free shipping threshold is only $35 so it’s really easy to get a ton of stuff + free shipping for under $40 total. This post has 99% of my favorite products linked. I swear by the “flexitarian” highlighter, LOVE their setting spray & only use their brow gel on my brows. It’s my holy grail, #1, must-have makeup product. Shop here!

 


The. Best. Baby. Shoes. And bags and kiddo shoes, of course. Both my girls wore FP as babies and they still wear FP sandals. I have loved FP forever and ever. I even have some of their mama stuff with the FP logo on it. I’ve hosted giveaways with them on my IG before also. My love for this brand is YEARS old. Their sale is incredible. Everything is 30% off, plus an additional 20% off with the fringe. You should* be able to get a free membership as well.

If you want to learn more about the brand, go here! If you just want to shop, go here! I know this sounds cliche, but I *do* get messages from people who are bummed that something I shared is sold out, but the things I share do generally sell out quick because the bargains are so good. So please don’t wait if you’re hoping to score some great deals this week! The bags and popular shoe styles will FLY off the site.

I’ll also link a few of my current favs below with individual links to shop them directly!

My absolute favorite baby/kiddo clothing brand is having amazing deals all week. You have to be on top of it to take advantage of the best deals for you, though. So I’ll share a graphic below to help you keep-up!

I’ll drop a few pictures of my girls in J&J below but most of the pieces we own are sold out by now. So sorry! There are TONS of really great pieces going out for this sale though!

You can also use my code BGROWW20 any time when there isn’t already a sale going!

Middleton’s Fall Festival, worth the hype?

This past weekend, we took a little trip out to the Middleton’s Fall Festival. We’ve been to just about every pumpkin patch within an hour of our house and this one was so much different than all the others.  I’m 100% that mom who is super pumped for a family fun day and then wants to leave 45 minutes after we get there. Every. Single. Time. I don’t love big crowds, I’m not super into carnival-type stuff and I hate feeling claustrophobic. I expected this event to make me feel the same way as all the others. But that wan’t the case. We were there for FIVE hours and I was actually bummed when we had to leave because they were shutting down for the night. I wanted to stay and do more, which is so unlike me. I’ll share most of our day here and a few quick tips at the end!

 IMG_3387

First thing we did when we got inside the gate was head for the corn maze. As we approached, a bunch of people tried to steer us away because they had gotten lost and were frustrated. (lol) But we went ahead anyway. There’s a picture of the maze at the front so you can take a photo and use it as a map. We did that and had no problem getting back out within 5 minutes of starting. No problem. So definitely take the picture if you decide to try out the corn maze!

We decided to just go ahead and eat right away because none of us are fun to be around when we’re hungry. There were so many options to choose from, most of them local food vendors. Tamales, Pizza, Corn dogs, Tuscan food, a taco truck & more. The girls had cheese pizza ( big surprise, I know), I had fresh pork tamales & Marty got his favorite, taco truck tacos. We were all pleasantly surprised by the large portions and delicious food. I might even have to hunt down Molly’s Tamales so I can get more. No shame.

The girls were more excited about the horse rides than anything else, so that’s where we went next. $5 a ride or you can choose to pay with Midd Bucks. Paisley rode a horse all by herself and Hallie & I rode doubles on a horse. It was so worth it and my girls loved it more than anything they’ve gotten to do at any other fall fest. The horses took us out into a freshly-mowed field, down a hill & looped around. Such an awesome memory to have with my horse-loving, city-living babes.

IMG_1409

Right next to the horse rides, there are two kiddie trains that the girls wanted to check out. One made of old barrels turned sideways, the other with wooden carts to ride in, both pulled by tractor. They chose the barrel train so they could pick which “color” they got to ride in. Kids. Lol. They rode it twice, once together and once separately. Both trains are free with admission and you can come back as many times as you’d like.

There were all kinds of other kid-friendly fun activities that were also free, that our girls loved. A giant slide down the hillside with silk pillows to ride down on, a hamster-wheel type game, a ball toss, a haystack to climb, pillow trampolines, a kid’s maze and a corn pit for digging. We rotated back and forth between them all for several hours and our kids didn’t fuss ONCE. No one got hurt, we didn’t have to fuss with tickets or tokens or long lines. Just good, easy fun that we all enjoyed.

 Toward the end of the evening, we checked out our private fire pit where we roasted some marshmallows and had a chance to rest and regroup before we headed back out to jump on the jump pillows one more time.

The Middleton’s have truly made a fun place to hangout with family this season. All the good fun, none of the stress or craziness. A couple tips I can share – 1. Don’t wear shoes that are difficult to get on/off or require tying. You have to remove your shoes for a lot of the activities and by the end of the evening I was pretty sick of putting P’s converse back on. 2. Dress cool. No matter how chilly it is outside, you will get warm running around with your kids. 3. GO EARLY. You will want to be there for several hours. 5 hours wasn’t even enough for us. 4. Eat the tamales. Always.

Thanks for the memories, Middleton family! We’ll be back . ❤

Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day weekend is your last chance to get some good deals before the black friday / cyber monday madness comes around. Haven’t bought any fall clothes yet? Now’s a good time, even if it’s still 90 degrees outside. *cough* I’m going to list a few things I already own that are on major sale first, followed by other goodies and great sales worth checking out.

If you want to shop my recent outfits (most of which are entirely on sale this weekend) you can click here, and “heart” the items you want to shop for later or shop them now while they’re on sale.

———–

One of my favorite, super affordable makeup brands is having a major sale this weekend on their already bargain prices. I use their brow products and love some of their lip products as well. I’ll link all the things I use on a daily basis below. All of them are under $10 w/ free shipping over $30. In addition to these favs, I have several lipsticks that are already sold out & TONS of brushes from this brand. I’ve never been dissapointed.

Next up – my all time favorite bracelets, ALL 40% off this weekend, but selling out quickly. The very first one is my all-time favorite, must-have, go-to accessory. I love it SO much and wear it ALL the time. I have several others but they’re currently sold out so I linked a few other beauties.

I have posted about these several times lately and quite a few of you have bought them for yourselves! They are AMAZING for the price, especially when they’re on sale. They have different sales every once in a while, usually just for 20% off. This weekend my favorite bra is BOGO 50% off. And I *believe* you can stack the 20% new-email coupon on top of the sale. Just sign up for their emails and you’ll get the code within a few minutes. I seriously love these wireless bras, I haven’t worn a wire-bra since. These come in TONS of colors, which I looooove because #inclusionmatters
