Big Life Journal

Packed with stories, poems, quotes, illustrations and writing prompts, this guided journal is the world’s first growth mindset book created specifically for children. Growth mindset activities help children to recognize their ability to learn and motivates them to harness the power of their own mind. It helps children learn to embrace challenges, to persevere, and how to grow from feedback. Through stories children will get inspired by failures and successes of people like Elon Musk, J.K. Rowling, Walt Disney, and others. Our guided children’s journal is broken down into 26 weeks with each week covering a new theme or topic.

These little surprise balls are one of the “it” toys this year! Some are bath bombs that dissolve in the tub. Some are just little balls full of joy. But really, they have different dolls and accessories in them. My 4 year old has been asking for them almost non-stop! But my nieces have been talking about them too! That’s why I included them in the older kids category.

Juvalips Lip Plumper

Juvalips was designed and manufactured in the US by top engineers to provide great results and prevent the damage of other lip plumping options. Our vacuum is specifically calibrated to pull hard enough for results, but gentle enough to prevent lip damage. The device is also on a 60 second timer to prevent over use. The soft contoured mouthpiece is ergonomically designed to distribute pressure evenly across the lips for a natural plump look and to prevent bruising. It can safely be used multiple times in a row. There are a few benefits to that. First, you can work your way up from 1 to multiple treatments incrementally. Second, when you find how many times it takes to get the desired plumping, and you can do that each time. Third, it gives your lips a break every minute. The break helps prevent bruising and improve results. Vacuum suction has been shown to cause collagen biosynthesis and has been used in spas as a recovery and anti-aging treatment for hundreds of years. Short term results last for several hours(4-10). Long term results from continued use last much longer.

Where Do You Look For Deals Now That Black Friday is Over?

Posted by on Nov 27, 2017

Black Friday is over. Cyber Monday is just about finished. But you still have shopping to do! Where do you go for deals now?

It’s easier than you think. If I’m honest, I bought one thing on Black Friday. One. Want to know what it was? Socks. I got half price socks for my whole family at Smith’s Marketplace for half price. That just isn’t where I shop anymore. So here are the places I plan on looking to save some moolah now.

Amazon: This is BY FAR where I do the majority of my shopping. They consistently have the best prices and I can shop in my pj’s. Win!

Smith’s: This one might seem odd to you, but you’d be surprised how many deals you can get here. Save on groceries and you’ll have more for gifts. They are doing 25 Days of Merry Deals right now and you will save on all sorts of things. Even games and toys!

Movie Theaters: The Cinemark refillable buckets are my favorite gift to give. They are fairly inexpensive, but then can be used all year round for the person who gets them. It’s the gift that keeps on giving! These often sell out so you won’t want to wait to buy yours.

Facebook: I know it sounds weird, but FB ads knows what they are doing. I’ve found some awesome things while just scrolling through my feed. And there is usually a coupon code. I discovered Big Life Journals on FB and it is freaking awesome! Not only is there a HUGE sale right now, I’m also giving one away!

Shop Local! I guarantee you have many family and friends who have items to sell that help them afford their own Christmas. Most of those will be having some kind of sale right now.

I found Rise & Shine Cosmetics through a friend and absolutely LOVE my permanent eyeliner and eyebrows. PLUS, get 50% off when you mention Mamas on a Dime!
