1. Shine Itazura Stealing Panda Coin Bank: I think this is a cute little “gag” gift or just a fun one, really. If you look this up online, you’ll see that if you place a coin on that tray, the panda will pop out and grab it. I got this for my 12yo and even though we have a ton of piggy banks, I figured she’d get a kick out… Read more »

Blog Tours, Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★★

One Line: Completely unputdownable! Such a fantastic and amazing book. In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW! Nicola Yoon surprised me with her first book, Everything, Everything. I really enjoyed that one.

Happy Planner Monthly and Weekly Spread Measurements

Happy Planner Monthly and Weekly Spread Measurements

Plan With Vi 0

A question that I see a lot in some of the planner FB groups are about the sizes of the boxes and pages of the Happy Planner. A lot of people like to make their own stickers, use printables, or cut up scrapbook paper and it’s handy to have a reference on hand of sizing. With that in mind, I thought it was a good idea to have these pictures… Read more »

Looks like it’s that time again, the time that all parents both dread and wait impatiently for… Potty-training! BG3 is creeping up on turning two and like with her sisters, I wanted to keep up the trend of getting my daughter potty-trained by the time they turn two.

One Line: A true page-turner. This isn’t just a Colleen Hoover book, it’s THE Colleen Hoover book. In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW! Wow! Just, wow!

I still enjoyed all her books and her writing… Read more »
