Circus Circus

We had a ton of fun with our circus shoot!  Thanks Heather Telford for the awesome pictures!




For the dumb bells I bought a wooden craft rod and 2 Styrofoam balls at my local craft store.  My husband cut the rod to where I wanted it, then I made a little hole in each ball, and filled it with hot glue.  I then stuck each end of the rod into each balls and held it until the glue dried.  Then, I spray painted away!

For the circus stand, I simply took a big flower pot we had on hand, and spray painted it.  Easy peasy.

Here’s a few more sneak peaks of our shoot.  Skirts are available now on Taylor Joelle .  Striped leo and dress are coming July!




Pink for my Home!

If you know me, you know I love pink!  I’ve painted chairs pink, my piano pink, and many other random odds and ends pink (my poor husband).  So, when I saw this amazing “spot on the wall” posted by The Jungalow, I had to give it a try in pink!


I had an Ikea shelf sitting around waiting to be used, and some Ikea fake plants.   The shelf was only $6.99 and the plants $5.99 each.



The shelf and pots had a pretty smooth surface.  I was worried the paint wouldn’t stick, so i first sprayed them with bullseye primer.


I then painted the shelf and pots in Valspar “posh pink” – you can buy a little sample jar for $5.  I also used this to paint the spot on the wall, and a chair I had sitting around.  It was plenty of paint (still have half a the sample jar left).

And here’s my new “spot on the wall”.



Soniclear Petite


Taylor has been doing a lot of tennis, which means a lot of sweating, which has caused her some acne.  She been complaining this past month of having tiny bumps on her cheeks (really wish I had of taken a before picture).  Not horrible, but these clusters of bumps (probably acne) were really bothering her.

They are now, almost gone and here are 2 things that have really helped.

  1. Her Soniclear Petite, by Michael Todd Beauty.

It’s an electric cleansing brush that is gentle, has different speeds depending on your skin, and can be used daily.  It also has a automatic timer that beeps, so she knows then to switch to another section of her face.  It’s antimicrobial protection for life.  So I never have to worry about it collecting germs and bacterial.   Taylor loves the feeling of the brush against her skin, so it makes face washing kind of enjoyable.

It can be purchased HERE  #soniclear


2.  Witch Hazel

Witch hazel is the second thing that has really helped Taylor’s skin clear up.  I had read a few forums online where witch hazel was recommended, so we thought we would give it a try.  It’s super cheap, and really seemed to do the trick.  There’s an article on the uses and benefits of witch hazel, that can be found HERE

I hope this info was helpful.  Taylor feels much more comfortable with her skin.

Moana Hei Hei Craft

We had a blast making Hei Hei from Moana.  He’s such a cute little guy!




  • toilet paper roll
  • construction paper (or paint)
  • googly eyes
  • feathers
  • glue gun


You can either glue several colors of construction paper to the toilet paper roll, or paint the roll. We used glue sticks to stock the feathers to the top and back of the roll.  The googly eyes were pretty heavy so we needed to use a glue gun to secure them.

DIY Moana Necklace (a preschool craft)

The craft is the best, because it’s so easy and every Moana fan needs a Moana necklace right?




  • card stock
  • paint
  • dark pen or marker
  • string or cord
  • large beads
  • hole punch


Cut the card stock into a oval and punch a hole.  Have your child paint a moana design . I used string because I didn’t have cord on hand.  The cord will be much easier for threading the beads.

Moana Preschool Crafts! Pua the Pig.

Moana releases to DVD next week!  I’ve put together some crafts to celebrate launch day!    Cohen loves these.  It’s such a fun activity for his age group.

Moana Craft 1: Pua the Pig





  • small paper plate
  • pink pipe cleaner
  • stapler
  • pink paper
  • black marker or pencil crayon
  • googly eyes
  • glue


Pre-cut the nose and ears.  Then you can have your child draw the dark circle for the eye, the nostrils of the nose, and the mouth.  They can glue it on.   After curling the pipe cleaner, staple it to the plate.
