Invitations are one of the biggest steps in party and wedding planning. The invite itself, the thank you cards, and little inserts too! Custom Invitations are so limited on so many sites, but finally, there’s a site that has everything you could want!

We are coming up on a few Birthdays in our family, as well as wedding season! And the invitation sets the tone for the whole event, so it’s kind of a big deal! I always want my invitation to create a little introduction to how the event might feel, whether it’s classy and chic, or fun and exciting, I want the person I am sending to, to get the right feeling about the event.

Basic Invite is the one stop shop for literally ANYTHING you might want for your invite or custom card, from the colors to the detailed designs. This is my dream come true! I often get a vision for exactly what I want in a card or invite, and this site gives me the freedom to do that! With picture invitations, Thank you cards, or anything else!

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company and is a big draw for me!

It is also one of the only sites that allows you to print a sample of your invite or card BEFORE you place your final order so that you can make sure the design is perfect as well as the paper quality. I don’t know about you, but this is something that would be sooo helpful!

Basic Invite is just as colorful with the envelopes options too! You can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that you can make the invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of the envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed. Life saver!

And what might be my FAVORITE thing about Basic Invite, is that it offers an address capturing service that allows people to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders. They seriously thought of EVERYTHING!!

I know where I am going to create my personalized birthday party invitations!

P.S.Foil holiday cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. You can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.

And they have over 250 Christmas card and holiday card designs!

Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51

Maskcara Makeup

 

I love this makeup!!! It’s amazing! First of all, I am used to adding layer upon layer of things even if it’s minuscule like, BB Cream, Foundation, Illuminator, bronzer, highlighter, etc….. But whats so amazing about Maskcara is that the highlighter and bronzer ARE the foundation! And it’s all cream! So I literally put it all on, add some blush (from the same palette) and the finish with the finishing spray. It’s soooooo easy! Also, there are amazing shades of eyeshadow I love to use too! And it’s all in one palette so it’s simple! Each color or shade of any different thing is removable too so you can buy the one color you are running out of instead of replacing a whole palette for one color! And I used the Maskcara beauty blender to apply it, and the two-sided brush for mixing it all in smooth. If you are on the fence about it, just trust me and you will be so thankful you did. I am hooked!

Aliah’s Dress//Jacket//

Londyn’s Skirt and Sweater//Moccasins-Freshly Picked//

We took photos this year on the Beach in Malibu and they turned out so beautiful! I love the girl’s picture together, it makes me sooo happy! I was struggling to find a dress for me when we started thinking about family photos and then one day I remembered one of my favorite fancy dress sites, Teri Jon! I found this purple ruffle sleeved dress and fell in love! It’s beautiful and classy and the color was something I had never done before so I was excited to throw together this color palette for pictures. They turned out so beautiful and I love the whole scheme!

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Dockatot Grand//

You guys, I cannot say enough about the Dockatot!! Whenever new moms ask me what things they should for sure have for new baby, I always say GET A DOCKATOT! They are so nice for so many reasons but here are 5 reasons I think every mom should have one!

  1. It is so easy to pack up and take places! It comes with a zip-up cover for it to stay clean while you travel!
  2. Babies are used to this being their bed so when you take it to Grandma’s or anywhere else, there’s no adjusting to a new bed to sleep in. You just bring this along and they are already familiar and comfortable.
  3. It is so easy to clean! There are cushions covered by a zip cover so all I do when it needs to be cleaned is unzip the cover and throw it in the wash!
  4.  It’s safer with the sides so baby can roll a little and stays in!
  5. They offer the infant Dockatot and then the 9-36 month one so they can grow into the big one when they are ready! And both sizes fit in a normal crib!

If you’re thinking about getting one, just do it! It’s so worth it!
