Mail Call: Erin Condren, Walmart Beauty Box and The Greeting Farm

Hey, everyone!

Let's face it when you become an adult, getting the mail is just not always fun. Usually there is a handful of bills to pay, maybe a few magazines or junk mail, but rarely is there anything exciting sitting in the mailbox waiting for you.

Recently though I have had a lot of FUN mail! Let me show you what all I got!

Mail Call #1
I received $10 from Erin Condren's website. I could hardly wait to get some customized stickers for my planner. The colors are vibrant and I love how I can create stickers that say exactly what I want for the events that my family enjoy the most.
You can personalize your stickers here. To get your $10 coupon click here.

Mail Call #2
Sample Box Prom POV
Here is a look inside the beauty box I received from Walmart:
For $5 I was able to get all of these products to sample. There will be four beauty boxes per year mailed out and the $5 includes shipping and handling. If you enjoy getting samples of beauty products to try before you buy, you may want to sign up for this offer.

Mail Call #3
The third and final package I am sharing with you all is from The Greeting Farm. My sweet friend Christina Wernstrum from Christina's Creative Expressions sent me a gift card for my birthday to TGF. I absolutely love their stamps and these are the ones I purchased. Thank you, Christina!
You can watch the video I created that shows you all the items I received in the mail. Be sure to watch all the way to the end to find out about an upcoming giveaway I will be doing! More details to come very soon!
Thanks for hanging out with me today. Check back soon for more ideas and inspiration!

Mother Daughter Tag

Hey everyone!

My daughter and I did a YouTube video recently and I thought I would share it with you all here. Kadesia wanted to create a video with me for my channel and I always enjoy that! We weren't sure what questions to ask each other and we didn't want the video to be very long. I did a Google search and came across a blog by Aimee Lane called It's Overflowing. She did a post on a Mother Daughter Tea Party activity she came up with. It is a really neat way to get to know your mom or daughter better and we enjoyed ourselves. The blog post is Mother-Daughter: How Well Do You Know Me Questions. Definitely go over to her blog and check it out if you haven't already. The post is from 2012 I believe but it is timeless and a lot of fun!

I will include the YouTube video here with our Mother Daughter Tag. I hope you will enjoy watching us as we learn how much we really know/don't know about one another! I was a little surprised!
Thank you all for watching. As always, if you have not subscribed to my YouTube channel, I encourage you to do so. You will be notified each time I upload a new video. I have a lot of fun creating these videos and definitely enjoy hearing from each one of you. Please leave me a comment below if you enjoyed it. You can also give the video a thumbs up on my YouTube channel and leave a comment there as well. Hope you'll join me for another blog post soon!

School Pictures

Hey everyone!

I wanted to share some pictures with you today of my children. They are getting so big! I can hardly believe my daughter is in SEVENTH grade! She is in the middle of her middle school years!
I know some of you have been with me since I started blogging and Kadesia was so small then! Time absolutely flies on by and doesn't let you slow down no matter how much you want to!

Javan has grown up so much, too! They are both in new schools this year and they love it! They are both doing great. Javan is in first grade. We even went on a field trip together! I will share those photos soon! Here is his school picture this year:
It's just so crazy to think how much they have grown and changed through the years! I absolutely love them to the moon and back!

Thanks for hanging out with me today!

Bridgett's Favorites

Hey everyone!

I have never done a video on some of my favorite things before so I thought I would do that today! There are so many videos on favorite items on YouTube but I am not a make-up guru or fashion and beauty trend setter so I wasn't sure if I should even do one of those videos. However, I think it will be fun to share with you all some of my favorite items to use and briefly explain what I like about those items. They will be totally random, but definitely include some chocolate! So without further delay, here are a few of my favorite things:
Thanks for watching my video! I hope you enjoyed it. If you have used any of these items and want to share your thoughts on them, be sure to leave me a comment below. You can always leave me a comment on my channel and be sure to subscribe!

What's In My Purse?

Hey, everyone!

I have watched a lot of YouTube videos where women show all the contents of their purse or handbag and how it is all organized. I enjoy watching them because sometimes other people have different things they carry with them that I just do not ever think to bring along. Often I have found creative ways to organize items in my purse that seem to fall to the bottom of the bag and get lost, or spill out and make a mess... So I thought I would share what is in my purse and how I have found a solution that works well for me in keeping things neat and organized.

The biggest tip I can give for finding a purse/handbag to stay organized is to find one that has a lot of pockets/compartments and enough room for everything you want to carry. Another idea is to use small cosmetic bags or zippered pouches to keep similar items together and keep things organized. If you just love a purse/handbag and it doesn't have a lot of pockets, you can get a purse organizer online or in some stores. They offer additional organization and just fits down inside your purse. I happened to find a really great purse at a local store that supports persons with disabilities. Here is my purse:
This is the front with 2 pockets and 2 more pockets on each side.
This is the back with a large pocket secured with velcro. 
Closer look inside my purse! 
And a final look inside.

I purchased my purse from the First Chance Center in Paoli, Indiana. You definitely must check them out! FCC's mission is to promote abilities and provide opportunities for persons with disabilities or other barriers to fully participate in their community.
