Transitioning My Toddler to His Big Boy Bed.

Hello beautifuls! I hope y’all are doing amazing this week. I’m doing amazing and super excited for my birthday coming up in a couple days, but I’m also bugging out that I’m turning 25, in 5 more years I’ll be 30! WOW! But, let’s move on to another little person who keeps growing and breaking my heart, my squishy, my toddler Jason. We recently transitioned him from his crib, since he would escape from every morning. This was a sign that he was ready for a big boy bed. A huge thanks to grandma and grandpa for buying him his toddler bed, y’all are the best.

I had so much fun making his room a big boy room. He really didn’t have a lot of decor for his nursery since we moved to Japan. So, I went into diy mode and made some of his room decor. Thanks to the yen store here in Japan I was able to make his decor for cheap. It was easy to pick what his room was going to be since he is obsessed with cars and loves the movies from Disney Cars. I first started with these box displays, I painted them to look like roads, I have been collecting mini cars and I thought it would be a perfect way to display them in his room. I think they are the cutest things ever!

The next thing I made was a sign with his name on it. Now, this took a while to make, but it turned out sooo awesome! This took three 8×11 canvas boards, a printer to print out the letters, mod podge, and a lot of patience. I was able to find free fonts to create the font of the movie Cars. I then started to trace out every square to make a race car flag. I painted the square black and white, once it was dry I mod podged the letters onto the canvas. This helps it lay the letters flat and seem like they are painted on. To make the 95’s that are on each side of his name sign, I used smaller canvas and painted them red, printed the number 95 and mod podged it on the canvases. I felt like this really brought the name sign together.

I was able to find these hooks at the yen store and painted it red, I thought it would be great to hang his backpack and jackets. This was the one thing that wasn’t as time consuming. But, it looks great.

I found the carpet at a store called nafco, it’s so soft and fluffy, I have the exact same one in my beauty room in pink. They are high quality carpets and were super affordable, can y’all believe they were only $40! I had to snatch them up. His little table I bought on amazon for $35 and the little bar stools I bought at daiso for $4 each. The bed set I bought from target on sale. And lastly the wall art I got on Etsy, it was $3 for the digital copy of the cars. I then printed them out on photo paper.

Jason loves his new bed and room. I think it turned out amazing! What do y’all think?

Shopping Is My Favorite Sport.

Hello Beautifuls! I’m back from my much needed vacation. Missing the sunshine state and my family like crazy, but it was time to come back to reality. This mama needs to recover from all the shopping that was done. It’s been a while since I’ve done a monthly favorites due to my constant shopping and well, looking for new things to try. To say I went a little crazy when I was back in the states would be an understatement. But, I don’t get to shop like this here in Japan, so I took full advantage. Also, let’s not leave Jason behind, he sure did some damage too. Haha. That little boy can shop! He learned from the best. So without further ado here are some of my new goodies!

Let’s start with some of the goodies Jason got. Like I said before, the boy knows how to shop and he sure is spoiled. Half of my suitcase was packed with his stuff and his clothes are tiny! This is a small portion of everything he got. I love the store Janie and Jack, they sell the cutest clothes and it’s totally the style I go for when I dress him. Since, he has everyone wrapped around his little cute fingers, he managed to get some Sperry’s out of one of his uncles. He even wore them out of the store like he’s all that.

Look at him strut his stuff!

Now, on to my new purchases. I really enjoyed going to the outlets, that’s where I bought this cute pink coach purse with a matching wallet for a whopping $100 for both things, talk about a good sale.

I don’t know about anyone else but, I love planners and phone cases. So, while visiting Disney Springs, formally known as downtown Disney, I picked up this cute planner for the new year and my new favorite phone case ever! It has Minnie Mouse, it can’t get any better. As, for the Alex and Ani bracelet, my sweet baby brother got me this. Ain’t he the sweetest? The little mermaid and the donut Mickey head are from uniqlo USA, we have a uniqlo here in Japan so, it was pretty cool to see a store I knew back home. And lastly, I was finally able to get my hands on the Walt Disney World rose gold jersey, I have been wanting to buy this from the first day it came out. Y’all I was like a little kid on Christmas Day!

I will be doing a post soon about the new makeup I bought back home, I sure got some good stuff. I hope you all enjoyed. See y’all soon!
