5 toys under $20 that have taken over christmas
Have you noticed a high demand for certain toys this year? well we have been surveiling the scene and this is what we have found. most stores and online store can not keep these things in-stock. so if they are in stock now GRAB THEM!
They come in different sizes but I’ve noticed the medium and jumbo are the hardest to find. If they are sold out at Target > try amazon.
If you dont live under a rock you probably know about these little guys and how hard it is to get your hands on an actual fingerling. Cyber monday was HUGE on amazon for restocks.. I suspect we will get another big restock before Christmas. Keep your eyes on our facebook page, we will be posting when they are in stock. here are a few links you can check in the mean time.. Amazon . Kohl’s . Target . ( they go for $14.99 so if people are asking for more just know you are being priced gouged. )
You can get all different brands of these but to my knowledge Soft ‘n Slo is the most popular brand. there is not much purpose other than being super squishies and smell good. they could double for your kid as a stress ball. find them at Target. Amazon. and in-store at Walmart.
I honestly dont know much about these toys other than what my 5 year old daughter has told me about them. I know they are little plastic dolls you can dress, and that they are completely sold out almost everywhere. get them at these places Target, Amazon. (big surpise that is $69 at Target ).
These are this years new spin on Hatchimals and They have made a big impressions on little ones. Mrs Clause knows all of the coolest new toys 😉 get them > here <

Organize Your Recipes with This Adorable DIY Recipe Binder
*We’re partnering with Avery to let you know about the adorable My Recipe Binders you can make to preserve your family’s favorite recipes.
Organize Your Recipes with This Adorable DIY Recipe Binder
I come from a long line of great home cooks. I grew up on Sunday dinners at my Grandma Richard’s house with homemade chicken noodle soup and handmade noodles. Her homestyle mashed potatoes fueled most of my childhood growth and development. And every single birthday, Grandma made sure to make my favorite huckleberry cheesecake. She passed her recipes and her love for cooking to both my mom and myself.
My childhood was laced with homemade chocolate chip cookies and delicious hearty meals.
Similarly, my Grandma Forbush was known as one of the greatest cooks in our town. Her recipes were always scrawled on notecards (when she used a recipe at all) and she was known for her fabulous homemade bread. She’d make 12 loaves at a time for her seven children and the gaggle of neighbor kids who were always hanging around.
Not only was my Grandma Forbush a great home cook, but she was the head cook at my elementary school lunchroom. My grandma and her sister mixed rolls from scratch for 300 kids, made their own apple crisp, and mixed a lot of love into each day’s school lunch. When I’d come through the line, she’d always gave me an extra breadstick or cupcake and a wink. I was her special girl.
Everyone loved my grandma for her kindness and her cooking.
Family Recipes Tell a Story
Family recipes are woven into our unique DNA. They tell a story of where we come from and who we are. My Grandma Forbush passed away a few years ago and as I was flipping through my recipes the other day, a tiny faded card fell out. It was my grandma’s bread recipe. Tears trickled down my face as I read these uncharacteristic directions:
This recipe makes around 12 loaves of bread or 200 rolls. Some people have tried to break down the recipe, but it never turns out quite right. That’s because a lot of years and a lot of love have gone into making this recipe perfect.”
Family recipes are too important to forget or worse, lose. They are like treasures to me, so I decided to put my favorite and most beloved recipes all in one special recipe binder.
The Avery My Recipe Binder
Avery has a My Recipe Binder that is perfect for organizing your recipes. It would also make an excellent DIY gift for moms, grandmas, sisters, daughters, or granddaughters. I remember going off to college for the first time and whenever I got a little homesick, I’d pull out my family’s recipe book and make a batch of my mom’s cinnamon rolls. It always made home feel a lot closer.
Check out this cute video to see how the Avery My Recipe Binder works.

Gals, these recipe binders are stain-resistant and super durable.

Each binder can hold up to 220 sheets of paper and there are three beautiful designs to choose from.
Preserve your family’s priceless memories because someday, they’ll be a legacy that lives on through generations. I miss my grandma so much, but I can channel her every time I make her recipes. And just in case you’re wondering, I always follow her bread recipe to the tee. I’m afraid of what might happen if I didn’t!

6 Awesome Gifts Grandparents Can Give that Aren’t Toys
Today as I wedged myself into our cataclysmic playroom and got down on my hands and knees to sort through the rubble, I decided I was over toys. Most of them have come from generous grandparents who like to spoil their grandchildren. And I love that they do that, but this year, I’ve been brainstorming gift ideas that aren’t toys.
Here are six good ones that would be perfect for grandma and grandpa!
6 Awesome Gifts Grandparents Can Give that Aren’t Toys
1. Pay for a sport or an activity.
Is there something your grandchild has always wanted to try but mom and dad don’t necessarily have the extra money to do it? Talk to their parents about it first to see if it’s feasible for everyone, and then give the gift of fun!
Enroll them in a season of flag football or sign them up for a community cake decorating class. Parents will love that you thought outside the box and kids will be thrilled to try something they’ve always wanted.
2. When giving money, make it memorable.
Every single year, from my first birthday to my 18th birthday, my Grandma and Grandpa Forbush gave me the same gift, but it was one I absolutely could not wait to get. I knew when they handed me that long rectangular wrapped gift exactly what would be inside—a cereal fun pack with a $10 bill taped to the top.
It was the funniest thing, but I think I anticipated and loved the cereal fun pack more than the money. Those eight mini breakfast cereals were sugary (the kinds my mom would never buy) and they were all mine! I’d savor one of them each day and notice how my siblings ogled them, wishing it was their birthday.
If you’re going to give money, make it memorable.
3. Take them shopping for a special outfit.
Gifts come and go, and I honestly don’t remember most of the ones I got as a child, but I do remember the one birthday my grandma picked me up to take me shopping for a special dress. I felt so big, riding in the passenger seat next to her in her big car. When she pulled into the JCPenny parking lot, I couldn’t believe she was taking me somewhere so fancy.
That birthday, grandma didn’t just buy me a dress…she let me pick out the dress. It probably wasn’t something she’d pick out herself, but is was a dress I absolutely loved. Every time I wore it, I’d think of my grandma and that special birthday.
4. Movie tickets
How cool would it be to get movie tickets from grandma and grandpa every year. Movie theatre gift cards make the perfect gift for every age. Young kids will think it’s the coolest thing in the world to go to a movie for their birthday and even get popcorn! Teens will play it cool, but will think it’s a pretty awesome gift, and adult grandkids (speaking from experience) will love the rare chance to go to a movie.
5. A season pass
If you really want to get creative, consider giving your grandkids the gift of a season pass somewhere nearby. This would be a great family gift too! Season passes to the zoo, children’s museum, water park, or local theme park would be epic.
6. Take them on a special date.
Most of all, kids crave time with grandma and grandpa and flourish when they get it. If you want to give a memorable gift, give the gift of time. Take your grandson or granddaughter on a special day trip or “date.” You could go fishing, go out to lunch, or to them mall. Make it a tradition and they’ll have memories of grandma and grandpa that last a lifetime.

Holiday Hair: How to Achieve the Perfect Curls PLUS Holiday Bundle Sales You Don’t Want to Miss
It seems like almost every female I know is seeking to achieve the “perfect” curl. I’ve been trying for years to get them, and my thick and unruly hair just never would cooperate.
They are literal miracle workers and the ONLY tools that would effectively give me the most beautiful curls ever.
Plus, the’re SO pretty. I mean, the blush and rose gold option?? dying!
Want amazing beachy waves/curls too?
Watch a tutorial HERE or HERE.
These videos have gone viral time and time again, and L’Ange is quickly becoming a household name because they have created tools that WORK, and products to support healthy, voluminous hair. Ask around. Read the comments in our LIVES. Women are genuinely impressed and falling in love with these tools and products.
That’s why, we are SO thrilled too announce that this holiday season, we have worked hand in hand with L’Ange to put together the BEST holiday hair bundles ever.
These make the BEST gifts!
We’re talking, our handpicked FAVORITE tools and products, at prices that will knock your socks off. These bundles are 60-70% off the normal prices, and you will ONLY find them HERE for a LIMTED time.
If you’ve been waiting for to buy yourself something, or want to gift a wand/straightener to your teen daughter, this is the time! Today is the day!
SHOP IT ALL HERE
Or check out all the individual package details here:
BASIC CURLS = any size/type Ondule wand + heat shield
This is a great option for someone just starting out. It’s basic, but complete. The heat shield protects the hair before you use the hot tools and is a necessity. Plus, it smells fantastic! We recommend the ceramic wand for those with thin or really damaged hair and the titanium for those with thicker/coarser hair.
BLOW IT OUT = dryer + blowout shampoo & conditioner + root booster
This combo of products is a lifesaver for those of you who don’t get the salon for a blow out weekly. I swear by this hair dryer. It’s the best I’ve ever had as it has cut my drying time down to half. without damaging my hair. The Blowout shampoo and conditioner help eliminate frizz without being weighty. Use a little root booster for some added volume and BAM, you look like you just stepped out of the salon at a quarter of the cost!
DOUBLE DUTY = both titanium Ondule wands + heat shield + nourishing gloss
Not sure which size wand to get? Get them both! The 32mm gives you a beachier wave whereas the 25mm gives you a more distinct curl. Totally different looks, but both amazingly beautiful. I love to switch between the two to really diversify my look! Be sure to use the heat shield to protect your hair and the nourishing gloss leave your hair smooth and shiny. A little goes a long ways!
SAVANAH’S PICKS = heat shield + dry shampoo + sea salt spray + marula mist + root booster + whip
Savannah, our resident hair goddess, put this package together of her favorite products. Sometimes hair care can be overwhelming and you may not be sure where to start. These products are the best of the best and will protect, PLUS provide volume and shine. They make a great gift bundle too. (The marula oil is my personal favorite….although the dry shampoo is a game changer too!)
Are you drooling yet?
You should be.
If you’ve been wanting super-model worthy hair, but haven’t been able to achieve it, TRY L’Ange tools and products. They’re the only thing that’s REALLY worked in my hair and honestly, I couldn’t love them more. These holiday packages are at prices you just can’t say no to! So grab a package for yourself, grab one for your daughter and grab one for your sister while they still last!
