Locks by Ashley from Flourish Hair Studio

Hey Friends... this is a totally non crafty post but I thought I would share because I am so happy with my locks! About a year ago I had a hair emergency! I mean like a bad bad dye job. I have always done my own hair with kits from Target because you know I DIY everything! Well this one day I decided I was going to let JCP salon dye my hair. Wrongo!
This is my hair now and I am finally at HAIR PEACE!

If you are in my area the babe who worked on my hair is Ashley from Flourish Hair Studio in San Ramon
snapped this as soon as I left the salon.


Ashley is awesome! She is so good at what she does. I swear we talk nonstop and have so much fun when I am there!

The before I will let the pictures speak fro themselves...
Photos on the Left are the bad dye job and the photo on the Right is what Ashley fixed. These pictures are from a year ago and I have continued to go lighter each time to achieve the look I have now.   

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my nightmare with you! ha!

Vintage Disneyland Themed Birthday Party!

Hey! Hi Friends! Today I am sharing some pictures from my sweet grandbabies first birthday! The theme was "Vintage Disneyland". I apologize now for the picture overload!  
My daughter made this cake and made that topper with my Cameo! I was amazed she figured it after being in the studio for less than a half an hour! 

This here banner came from @craftedbyjen I won it on her instagram! It was perfect for our party! 

How cute are these flamingo's with Mickey hats!?

I still can't believe my baby is ONE!

So one banner couldn't be enough so I made this banner to go on her highchair.

I used an old Disney book and cut the letters with my cameo. The faces were also cut from a book that I found at my local thrift store. 

Here is my daughter's sweet little family. 

Our party got rained out and we had to put plan B into action... Plan B was a Pizza Restaurant that had a party room... 

I did my best to transform this pizza place into a vintage Disneyland setting.

I made fruity pebbles Mickey Mouse shaped  Tinker Treats. I am so happy to report we did not have any Prince Charming Churros left otherwise I would of ate them at home! 

I purchased this book from the thrift store and my daughter painted the middle pages a midnight blue. 
I then cut out letters with my cameo. I also tried printable vinyl for the first time. I must say I give it a huge thumbs up!

too many goodies... 

Our party guests also dressed up as their favorite Disneyland characters.

We did not let the rain stop us ... It turned out to be a great birthday even if we had to move the party at the last minute.

Thanks for stopping by... here is a quick video of my sweet babies :)

#NSD I'm a guest artist over at

Hey Friends! Did you have a wonderful National Scrapbook day!? Did you pull your girlfriends together and get out the paper & glue!? 
I would love for you to pop on over and see my guest artist layout. The technique is stamping. I stamped some cute bunny ears and cut them out and just had fun placing them everywhere! :)

Come and play! There is still time to create a page using a stamping technique and link up! I'd love to see what you create! Don't forget to link up

With that said ... here we are scrappin, wait is that a word? You know, I wish I could come up with a better name than scrapbooking.  I once thought of scrapboogers but it's really not cute. Hmmm... I will have to brainstorm some more.
 Our yearly traditional #NSD picture!

#Plan: Get your fitness on with MAMBI

Hey Hi! So I have been MIA trying to get my fitness on!
With that I am here to show you yes- my NEW planner! lol
I know you are probably thinking another damn planner :)

hahaha yessss! #buyalltheplanners

This one is different! My sweet friend Teresa gifted me this planner. I was searching high and low but the original fitness planner was only being sold on ebay for $100! Yeah pretty crazy right! lets take a look at her ...   

So here are the covers and what I la la love about this planner is you can change them! I see some DIY covers coming along soon!
In this second picture you will see the heart of this planner.  

Look at these rings... I was really unsure about the whole MAMBI planner because I had no clue how   it worked.

The planner kit also comes with lots of date / month stickers to fill up your planner.

Those cute rings... here they go! So so easy to just connect everything. It's like a puzzle! So easy and fast!

Look at this beauty!

Here is the inside, it is blank and just waiting for you to fill everything in.  

Loving the food/ exercise log. I really need to be held accountable and I am just 
hoping to stay more on track using this planner.  

Oh ok... check this out. Who doesn't like a quick selfie!!?

Each divider has an awesome quote.

Lastly this awesome pen holder is bomb. I love that I won't have to search for a pen.  

Ok peeps, that's it for today. I can't wait to get started. Once I move in and get my dates down I will be sure to follow up with a blogpost.  Maybe I can combine my love for pretty paper and excersize somehow.    

Oh don't go yet!>>> get your extension pack here: MAMBI Fitness Extension Pack

Valentine Shopkins DIY tags!

Hi My loves...... Happy almost Valentines!!!

So my sweet granddaughter asked me to help her come up with some tags for her Valentine treat bags... The Mission: FIND SHOPKINS VALENTINE CARDS WAS UNDER WAY!

My first search was to go to all Targets in my area well because Target has everything.
My results: No Shopkins!

My second search... the good ol world wide web!
My results: Free Printables from @sippycupmom

Yay! My search was over!!
Mission completed....

Once I printed my free printable I started off cutting out by hand the circles.

I then went to my cameo and found these perfect heart tags. 

Once all my valentine printable's 
 were cut I glued them onto my tags. I also added tiny labels that read xoxo Malia. Easy Peasy!

I had several people ask on Instagram how I made these so here is my go to post. Don't forget you can do this with any theme your child needs! There is always a way! 

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy creating!
