Frugal Party Supplies, Party Favors & Decorations: Choose Oriental Trading!

As a frugal shopper and party planner, I'm always looking for great deals on party supplies, party favors, and party decorations.  One of my favorite places to cash in on great deals is through Oriental Trading.  Even if I am not planning a party, I look forward to browsing through their catalog every single time it arrives in the mail.  I also frequent their website!

One of my favorite sections is their clearance "less than perfect" items. I don't see their minor flaws or defects, instead I embrace the fact that they are going to help me stretch my party budget even further.  Many times their flaws are as minor as being a little "off color" that the others.  

The Oriental Trading Company has an amazing selection of affordable party supplies for all of your party needs.  Whether you're hosting a birthday party, graduation party, wedding, reception, school carnival, or maybe a retirement party... they have the perfect assortment of supplies and accessories.  Plus, they are so much more than just for parties!
Oriental Trading is the nation's largest direct merchant of value-priced party supplies, arts and crafts, toys and novelties, and a leading provider of school supplies and affordable home décor and giftware.

Think PEEPS for Spring & Easter!


With warmer weather on the horizon and longer days filled with sunshine ahead, it's time to officially THINK SPRING! What better way to celebrate that spring has sprung than with PEEPS?  I honestly can't imagine an Easter without PEEPS!  We all have our own personal #peepsonality, and I was thrilled to receive a box of PEEPS to enjoy and share with my family.

I've been browsing Pinterest, other blogs, and the web in general - and can't believe how many PEEPS recipes and craft ideas there are out there.  So many of them I would never have thought of trying or making on my own.

There are Marshmallow PEEPS cakes, PEEPS cupcakes, PEEPS wreaths, chocolate dipped and chocolate covered PEEPS, PEEPS S'mores, and so much more.  The PEEPS-ibilities and virtually endless.

Join Dove Deodorant & Change the Way the World Sees the Armpit


Shaving your legs and armpits is a necessary evil, especially during the spring and summer.  As the weather begins to warm up, shaving becomes more of a regular beauty routine due to short sleeves, tank tops, swim suits and halter tops!

It's important to remember that shaving can damage our sensitive skin, especially our armpits, and we need to remember to take special care to nourish our sensitive parts.  Even our armpits!  After all, they aren't as "stinky" as most people tend to think!

This year join Dove® Deodorant in changing the way we care for our armpits. Shaving is a harsh but necessary part of beauty routines. To fix the damage done by a razor and restore beauty, simply use Dove Deodorant NutriumMositureTM after shaving to heal and protect sensitive skin.

Gorton's Seafood Real Solutions (Review & Giveaway)


My kids and I absolutely love seafood, but due to our geographical location, we rarely get to enjoy fresh seafood.  We make sure to make the most out of our meals while on the Oregon Coast every summer for family vacation.  However, during the rest of the year we trust the Gorton's fisherman with our seafood needs.

Being a part of the Gorton's blogger program allows me to try all the newest Gorton's seafood creations with my family.  As an added bonus, I get to share the opportunity with my readers, so that they can try them as well - for free!

Gorton's Seafood tastes delicious and comes in so many delicious varieties and we love them all!  The same goes for their NEW artisan fillets.  Gorton's Artisan Fillets are available in four mouth-watering varieties:
