Halloween craft ideas....Family fun!

In the spirit of Halloween season, I searched online for some easy handmade Halloween craft ideas just for you!

The first idea was found at Martha Spiderwebs made from cheesecloths. What a cheap, cute way to get into the holiday spirit! For more info and what supplies you need to make these spiderwebs, visit here.

The next item is a cute halloween evil googly eye pom-pom wreath found at Dollar Store Total cost for this cute lil' wreath is $6 and you get to make it yourself! For info and supplies click here.

If you have kids, you know how much they like to make stuff and help out when you're making stuff. This last craft would be a fun, perfect way to spend family craft time together. I found this idea at Family This looks like a super easy craft. They are called spirit jugs. You could use them inside or outside your house. Please click here for supplies and more info.

Work It in Business Suits from Express!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Express for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

From the Executive to the Professional and even the Creative Professional, Express has the suits that every man/woman needs! I visited Express earlier today and took a look at their women's suits. My son started pre-k full time last month and I've been contemplating going back to work. I used to be a recruiter and was required to wear a suit and/or jacket daily. Express has some really great stylish suits! 


I absolutely love the Studio Stretch Jacket and Editor Pant. It's available in fours colors including earth, charcoal, taupe and black. It's sophisticated style and shape is a wear-to-work must-have. It has stretch fabric that hugs your curves for a flattering fit. You can pair with the Editor Pant for a chic office look. This suit is perfect for work as well as going out after work. Some of the features of this suit are:

  • 64% Polyester/31% Viscose/5% Spandex
  • One-button front closure
  • Long sleeves with 4-button detail at cuffs
  • Two flap pockets
  • Lined
  • Dry clean only
  • Imported

Since I'm considering going back to work, I think I'm going to go to Express and try on some of their suits. They are perfect for interviewing and will make you look as polished as can be! For a limited time, enter Express sweepstakes everyday for a chance to win a $500 suiting makeover! Be sure to visit today! You never know, you may win! 


Please feel free to leave a comment and tell me which suit/suits you love and why! What are you going to use your suit for? Work, networking events, job interviews? I want to know!

Discovery Green park has putt putt golf!

(photo credit: taken from Discovery Green's website)

We've had amazing weather in Houston for the past few days. We decided to go to Discovery Green park this past Sunday. For those of you who don't live in Houston, Discovery Green park is an amazing park that was built a few years ago. It's smack dab in the middle of downtown Houston near the convention center.

Discovery Green park is a great family park with tons of stuff to do. They offer yoga, zumba, live music, have a few restaurants and cart vendors. They even have a Houston public library branch. Click here for their calendar.

Dominic and Justin decided to play some putt putt golf. I just watched and took photo's.
 It was a great day for all of us!
