Cheeky Monkey

Disclosure:  This post is written in behalf of Cheeky Monkey, all opinions are 100% my own.

It's school time!  That means that it's time to for back to school shopping.  Some of you might have already done it and some of you might be in the process.  Either way, are we ever done shopping for our kids?  I bought clothes for mine for school, but in a couple of months I'm going to have to get more things because of the changes of the seasons.  They are going to need long sleeve shirts, jackets, more pants and things like that.  It's a never ending process.

I'm always for the lookout for companies that have nice clothes for kids of all ages. Since I have kids, toddlers and a baby, it's nice to find ones that have all of those sizes.  Cheeky Monkey has all of those.

They have a variety of clothes, jackets, shoes and more.  Look at how fun all of these are:

 Hatley Boys Space Ships Raincoat  Hatley Boys Alligator Hat Mayoral Boys Checked Shirt (3103)
 Joules Girls Party Skirt (Jnr Lizzy, Ruby)Mayoral Girls Beige Pumps (43205)Mayoral Girls Yellow Belted Dress (3925)
This is just a small sample of what they have to offer!  Aren't they so much fun!  My oldest would love that outer space coat and the fun alligator hat is perfect for winter.  I just love the dress and those shoes.... I wished they were in my size, I would totally get them. 

And for those baby and toddlers, here are some super cute things!  There are some super cute outfits, even inch blue shoes for babies.   

Kite Kids Girls Toddler Pink Spot Dress (BG076) Mayoral Boys Beige Twill Trousers (512) Mayoral Girls Baby Dress (1859)
Mayoral T-Bar Shoes White (41137)Inch Blue Baby Boys Leather Shoes (Rocket Navy/Red)Inch Blue Baby Girls Leather Shoes (Button Flower)

Cute stuff huh?  And I have only just tapped the surface, they have much more to offer.  Including furniture, gifts and toys.  If you're looking for clothes for you kids, go check them out.

Polka Dot Wooden Beads Necklace

Polka dots are one of my favorite trends.  I hope that they don’t go anywhere and that they are cool and stylish for a long time.  I just love them!  I love them so much that I wanted to make a fun necklace that was polka dot.  And so I did.  It was so easy to make, I should make more in different colors.

This is how I made it:
I took wood beads in two different sizes.

I spray painted them green.

Using my Cricut, I cut out all the little polka dots out of vinyl and put them on the beads.

To make sure the vinyl stays on, I sprayed them with an acrylic glaze.

I put the beads onto some white knit fabric.

And that’s it!  So much fun, I love it!

I love that I made the fabric longer, so I can make it a long or short necklace. 
I would love it if you followed along.

Rose Trim Necklace

Green is my favorite color.  I love it!  I especially love bright greens.  One day I realized that I didn’t have a green necklace.  Since I had a baby recently, my clothes aren’t fitting great still.  So fun and bright necklaces are what help me to dress up and feel a little bit better about my unflattering outfits.  This necklace was so easy to make, it only took about 5 minutes.

Rose Trim Necklace
This is how I made it:
I took an old necklace, felt and some rose trim that I got at a craft store.

I cut the rose trim and cut the mesh around the edges.  Then I glued it onto the necklace.

I then put the felt on top of it.  I put a couple little pleats into the felt so the necklace would have more of an U shape.

And that’s it!  I told you it was easy and quick.

Here is a picture of it on, so you can get an idea of how it looks.  This picture was taken on a roller coaster, we were in the front seat on a coaster with a 500 foot drop!

My Evening Dress

Fall is coming and the cooler weather is starting to come.  It's time to start thinking about packing away our shorts and skirts (sniff sniff) and start bringing out our pants and long dresses.  I actually love dresses.  I especially loved them when I was pregnant, so nice to not have anything tight around my belly.  It was my go to outfit when I wanted to look cute and still feel comfy.  

I love how I feel in a special dress.  It's amazing how a nice dress can change the confidence of a woman.  I just love being able to dress up and go out on the town.
