How to make a ponytail hair tie in 3 steps.

Hi friends
Whatcha doing? I’ll tell you what my kids are doing they’re whipping their back and forth like Willow Smith and it’s all thanks to me.

About a month or so ago we were at the mall shopping in Ivy’s favorite store Justice. While shopping Ivy could not leave the store without this hair tye. It was a hair tie with ombré hair attached to it and a bow. So when you put it in your hair not only does it look as if you have a cool strip of ombré hair but also looks like you have a super cute bow on too. I purchased one for both Ivy and Aria and they literally wore them every day. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll even see them in their hair in a few photos. While wearing them every single day they became worn out. So while I thought about buying a few more $6.00 isn’t something I wanna spend again, so I had a thought. “Why not make them self?”. So I did for this easy project you’ll need a few items.

Bows (dollar tree) $1.00
Hair ties (Walmart) $3.00
2 packs of colored hair (any local beauty supply) $4.00

This entire project will cost you less than $9 after tax, plus with all the supplies you can make multiples of them. More bang for your buck. 

Step. 1 Take a piece of each color hair and loop it through the hair tie.

Step. 2 Braid the pieces of hair.

Step. 3 Take your bow and insert it into the braid at the top. As close as you can get it to the actual hair tie. 

Then ta-da! You’re all done. 

Now your little girl can rock that hair tie like the rock star that she is. You save a ton of money and she gets to whip her hair back and forth. These make for awesome gifts too. Hope your little girls love them as much as Ivy and Aria. So cute I may have to consider making one for myself. :)

What’s in my Lily Jade Diaper Bag?

Hey moms!
 what do you guys keep in your diaper bags? I’ve noticed lately either when I’m out with my other mom friends or when I am out with my kids at the park each mom has something different in her diaper bag. I think it’s pretty cool to see all the different things each mom carries for her little ones. Don’t you?

They say that there’s no guide to parenting. That’s true in a sense. Obviously, every baby is different. We all grow up to be individual and unique people, so it makes sense that this would start when we’re children. That being said, there are certain “universal truths” when it comes to motherhood. There are certain cheat codes and hacks to mastering the art of bringing up your baby well. This rough guide might help you to prepare for motherhood, whether you’ve just found out you’re pregnant or you’re in the eighth month of your pregnancy.

Keeping my toddlers safe with The Toddler Monitor.

Hi friends!
Want to hear a scary-funny story? Well, when I was around probably seven years old I was really mad at my mom one day. I can’t remember exactly why, but I think it was something along the lines of she wouldn’t let me have candy... kids, right? Anywho, like I said I was really mad, I grabbed a tiny backpack packed some random pajamas, shirt, one shoe, toothpaste no toothbrush, a few Barbie dolls and I was determined to run away. I put my backpack on and walked right out the front door. I got about halfway through the yard when I realized “yeah this probably isn’t going to happen”. So I went back inside to play with my little brother. My mom is going to kill me reading this even 13 years later. But the point is if I never went back to the house and actually ran away things could have been really bad, scary. But then, on the other hand, it was also funny I actually thought I could run away with my Barbie’s. Being a mom is hard and keeping an eye on your little ones 24/7 can be even harder. So having extra help is a necessity can you imagine if my mom had the Toddler Monitor back when I was seven? Ah, yes the Toddler Monitor.
