easy DIY costume you can use all year round

What is better than a cute halloween costume? A costume made from cute pieces you can use all year round. We teamed up with Mini Boden and created a super girly witch costume with some of our favorite items. My girls love tutus so that was a must and those leopard shoes are so perfect for fall. We have these tights in quite a few colors and prints, they're perfect for layering under dresses during our So Cal winters. Once we picked the cute outfit we headed to our local halloween shop and got the with essentials.

Kourtney Jay's third birthday



Better late than never right? Finally sharing Kourtney's third birthday party pictures, a day before her fourth birthday! She wanted a balloon party. That part was easy, balloons everywhere. This was her first birthday party that she was actually exited about planning and I really wanted her to have the absolute best time ever! She is a girly girl though and through. Loves makeup, dress up, painting her nails, tea parties! When I came across Sugar Plum Parties I knew this was the place for her! It's a little girls dream come true. They have different themes from spa days for the older girls, mommy and me painting parties, art and craft parties and princess makeover parties! They take care of every single detail, provide lunch, cake, all the tea party decorations, table decor and making throwing parties easy! I did take a few of my own decorations like the paper goods, disco ball favors, and centerpieces. We picked the princess makeover, tea party theme. As each girl arrived they were able to pick a princess dress they provided, then it was time to get your hair done toped with sparkles and a crown, nails painted and every little girl got to make a custom bracelet that they were able to take home. After the makeovers it was party time! They had a host that introduced each little girl for crowning. they dances, played with balloons and played games. Once that fun was over everyone sat down for the tea party where they ate pizza, and small appetizers. Then we celebrated the birthday girl and took all the pictures.
