My Little Jumping Beans

Jumping Beans Tee Kohls Jumping Beans Jumping Beans Baby Boy Jumping Beans Toddler Jumping Beans Collection Jumping Beans Baby New Jumping Beans

These little guys sure brighten our lives! I love having adventures around LA & it’s the best when we document days like this because looking back on how much they’ve grown is the most bittersweet thing. Kids grow up far too quickly!

On another note though, how cute are their little outfits from Kohl’s!? I always love a good graphic tee & when I find them for my boys, I immediately want to purchase them (& secretly wish they made them in my size). Both boys outfits are from the newly re-designed Jumping Beans collection that just launched in-store & online at Kohl’s this month. The new Jumping Beans collection has such adorable pieces & I love how the clothing is such great quality. With two adventurous little boys, we need clothes that are going to last & these will definitely do just that! With Spring & Summer right around the corner, I’m definitely going to make a few more purchases from this collection. (I especially love this tee & these shorts!) Plus, they’re having a site wide sale for 20% off! Use code: YES2YOU for 20% off + 3x points!

If you have little ones, have you checked out the new Jumping Beans collection at Kohl’s?

 

Thanks to Kohl’s and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post. Per usual, all opinions are my own 🙂

TILI Box

The TILI Box from QVC

1024 683 Sheridan Gregory

I have been compensated by QVC for my participation. All opinions are my own.

QVC TILI Box QVC Nudestix QVC Beauty QVC Julep QVC Wen QVC bareMineralsDiscovering new brands & trying out new products is hands down one of my favorite things to do. The excitement I feel when I’ve found a new product that I absolutely love, is almost embarrassing.. Almost! 😉

When I heard about this TILI box from QVC, I knew I had to get my hands on one. After discovering one of my new favorite skincare brands through QVC, I wanted to try out the other beauty brands that they vary as well. This TILI box was the perfect opportunity!

TILI stands for ‘Try It Love It’ & it’s not a subscription box. QVC puts out a new box every quarter with different products from the brands they carry. The box features 8 products with 3 of those products being full size & retails for $20. Which is a total steal! & if you’re new to QVC, you can receive $5 off of your first purchase with the code “FIVE4U”.

Now for a little bit about the products in this TILI box!

NudeStix Lip/Cheek Pencil in Mystic

This is one of my absolute favorite lip products!! You can’t go wrong with this lip color & it also looks gorgeous on your cheeks.

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream

This is one of my favorite beauty brands & this product is a holy grail for me.

Julep When Pencil Met Gel Eyeliner

I hadn’t tried this brand before & I was so excited to swatch this eyeliner. It goes on smooth & has great pigmentation. I can’t wait to wear this for a night out!

Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser

This is another product that I’m trying out for the first time but I absolutely love the brand, Philosophy!

bareMinerals Bare Haven Cream

I absolutely love bareMinerals makeup & their skincare is just as amazing. If you haven’t tried this cream yet, you should definitely check it out!

WEN Pomegranate Conditioner

I was SO excited to see this product when I opened up my TILI box. I have heard the most rave reviews over WEN products but haven’t ever tried them.

Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream

I have QVC to thank for introducing me to Elemis. I absolutely love this brand & think they have some of the best skincare products. This cream is so hydrating; I can’t get enough of it!

Laura Geller Protective Under Make-Up Primer

Laura Geller is another brand that I have heard so much about but had never tried out. I am primer obsessed & love that this one has SPF in it!

Have you guys tried any of these products?

 

Seedling Kids Crafts Sale

Our Favorite Kids Crafts

Seedling Kids Crafts Kids Crafts Kids Christmas Gift Ideas Cotton On Kids

Kannon is obsessed with doing crafts. He has such a creative little mind already & I absolutely love it. Our all-time favorite crafts are from Seedling & when I found out that they were having a major sale for Black Friday/Cyber Monday, I knew I had to put a quick post up! You can get up to 65% off of their sets at the moment so if you’re in the need for gifts, head on over & snag them before the sale ends!

We took these photos a while back when Kannon put together his Pete’s Dragon kit 🙂

DIY Hair Elastics

356 1024 Sheridan Gregory
These little hair ties are the best! The only down side to them was how much they cost. A pack of 3 or 4 of these can cost anywhere from $6-$12. I didn’t want to spend that much on them though so I decided to make my own! They are the easiest things to make & sooo much cheaper. Here is a little step by step how to:

1.) Buy 5’8″ elastic (1 yard makes 4 hair ties). I got mine from Etsy
2.) Measure & cut a 9″ strip of elastic.
3.) Fold elastic in half.
4.) Tie the end in a knot.
Then you can repeat until all of your elastic is used & voila! You have your own DIY hair ties!

 We spent the day at Universal Studios the other day for my niece Andy’s birthday. We have season passes so we have been going quite a bit lately. You’ll have to excuse my workout clothes because it was blazing hot & we ended up playing in the water park! I’ve been using this bright bag for about a week now as my diaper bag & am loving the functionality of it. It can be worn as a tote, shoulder bag & a backpack, which makes it so easy to carry while chasing Kannon around. (If you’re in need of a new bag, you can get $40 off this one by using the code blueeyedfinch20 along with the code LINAJAKE20 & it comes in other fun colors as well :)) Hope you guys are having a great week! Stay tuned for a new video tomorrow!! Subscribe & be the first to see it! 🙂

 We drove up the coast of California to the Redwoods & it was beyond incredible! It took us foooorever but it was such a beautiful drive that it was worth it. We ended the day by driving through the Chandelier Tree & it was insane! I couldn’t get over the fact that the tree was large enough to fit a car through it. Nature is pretty dang amazing! We are all blessed to live in such a beautiful world.
