Pioneer Woman Christmas Haul

Did you get everything you wanted for Christmas?! I sure did! Hehe. I feel absolutely blessed to have a wonderful family that just totally gets me. For the past few years, my family both on both sides use Elfster. An online secret Santa Generator, that’s easy to use. This gift-giving tool helps organize office parties, family or friends events all online, there’s a mobile app too!

The main feature that I personally love about Elfster is the website’s feature to include a universal wishlist. Copy and paste the link of that special item you’ve been eying all year round! I like to start after Thanksgiving, just to start notifying the early bird holiday shoppers. This year, I was obsessing about the Pioneer Woman line at WalMart! A few months ago I wrote a post on a few items I purchased from the Pioneer Woman line at WalMart. If you’re interest on that, be sure to click the link below on my related posts!

Using Elfster has made it easier for friends and family to go gift shopping for you. This also gives them a chance to see your personality through the lists.  Obviously, they can’t if you just put gift cards. But that’s boring!! I truly posts items I’d love to purchase on my own, but just can’t get around to getting because I can’t just justify it enough. I also posts items I’m currently loving, and will see using for the long haul….Like kitchenware.

Which brings me full circle to the Pioneer Woman line at WalMart. Ree Drummond (Pioneer Woman) has an amazing rustic cowgirl kitchenware line any inner rustic chic gal would love! I call myself a cowgirl at heart, as I honestly believe I was meant to be living on a farm in Texas, with a beautiful ranch style home decorated by Joanna Gains…..Ah. I’ve been watching way too much Fixer Upper.

Needless to say, I just love me some rustic style kitchenware in my home!! So….I put a few on my Elfster, and that’s what I was showered with!! Check out what my family got me! I love each and every piece oh so very very much!

The Pioneer Woman Adeline 10oz Sunday Cup (Set Of 4)

The Pioneer Woman Flea Market Stoneware Salt & Pepper Shaker

The Pioneer Woman Flea Market Oil/Vinegar with Tray Set

The Pioneer Woman Cowgirl Lace 16-Piece Stainless Steel Flatware Set (Green)

…I also have the Linen (Pearl White) set

I’m so grateful to have friends and family that totally get me!! If it wasn’t for Elfster over the years, I’d probably be getting Forever21 or HomeGoods Giftcards every year. But to be honest, I really love the fact that my loved ones listen to my Elster list! These are just a few items that cost no more than $20! Many of them range from $5-$15, so these are absolutely affordable! And never ever ever ever, in my right mind, take advantage and post something ridiculous like a West Elm furniture piece. So WalMart….You have my heart. And so do you Ree Drummond.

I hope you got what you wanted this year! Comment below! I’d love to hear what you received this Christmas!

Happy Holidays & a Happy New Year everyone!

Oh Joy To The Rescue!!

You guys, I seriously squealed like a little girl when I saw the OhJoy striped first aid bag for the first time.  After viewing through my news feed in Insta, it was literally fell in love at first sight, and took my butt straight to my local Target!

OhJoyYou can find these ridiculously cute first aid bags at the end caps of the healthcare isle of your Target. When I went today, they had a sale for it being $5.99 (Original price at $6.99). Also, if you purchase 3 select health care items, you get a First Aid Kit FREE!! I’m thinking of heading back and buying 3 more bags, just for each car, and also for in the house!

Oh Joy! also has a line of Band-Aids for Target. The Target I went it didn’t have them, but did have some very cute Target Up&Up brand-aids (See in above). Oh Joy To The Rescue is the new collaboration, of the newst products with BAND-AID, and also Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies. These lovable, sweet, pretty, attractive band-aids, just add a cute adorable touch to help heal and cover up those cuts and scrapes.

OhJoyToTheRescue

Now, with a family filled with boys they would have no appreciation for OhJoy products or design of such. I mean, look at them. Pastel colors, fun festive design patterns. No gratitude or thanks from my boys. BUT! That doesn’t mean I cannot store and provide simple standard bandaids, or Avengers band-aids in my little first aid kit. With well active boys, being in baseball, basketball, other sports, and just being boys, boo boos happen. So being a well equipped mommy ready for those future ouchies – I’m ready to help heal.

Have you purchased your OhJoy to the rescue products yet?! If not, you better hop on it!!!! I sure will again later this week!!

100 Yen Japanese Buys

Earlier this week I visited San Francisco’s Japantown with my family who came to visit from Fresno. Japantown is a neighborhood in the Western Addition district of San Francisco, and is about six square city blocks. It’s a great place to shop, enjoy small boutique shops, small eateries, and just indulge in Japanese culture. Since we came on a weekday, there wasn’t as many tourists as there would be on a weekend. And trust me, this place could be like Disneyland, with all the foot traffic they can get.

We first visited our favorite Japanese store Daiso. Being the from Bay Area, this is a very popular Japanese Dollar Store, also called 100-yen store. I was laughing at my mom and Aunt because, my parents have a huge Daiso just a few minutes away from their house. But their justification was that the SF location was better. Of course, I couldn’t protest against that.

Like always, in every  department store I find myself in the stationary/office accessories aisle. I’m a huge collector of note pads, journals, pencils, colored pens, and anything you could contain and organized those tools in. I’m such a huge impulse buyer on containers, or zip up pencil bags – its pretty ridiculous. If you’re familiar with Daiso, you might already know that they have an extensive selection on stationary articles; and not only that, in Daiso everything is $1.50!!! So I’m definitely in stationary heaven.

Daiso Haul

Daiso has every kind of supplies. I love it. I could find almost everything I use, I can buy at Daiso. If you are a huge fan of the DollarTree or 99Cents Store, you’re going to love Daiso. Not only that, they carry many items from home kitchen tools, car supplies, garden tools, to gift wrap boxes, to false lashes!! So if that sounds amazing it is!!! I never ever walk into a CVS or Wallgreens ever, because of the crazy variety that Daiso offers. It’s definitely you’re convenient dollar store!

Pens

I said, I’m a huge fan of stationary office supplies. I seriously geek off on this type of stuff. Especially if its dirt cheap!

Wet QTips

Wet Cotton Bud Q-Tips

One of my favorite items I always get from Daiso, are these wet cotton bed q-tips. They are individual packed cotton q-tips, that are wet. I find these wet cotton buds really useful when I travel and also at the gym as I’m doing my make up. They help me clean up my cat-eye eye liner look as I do my make-up every morning. Seriously, so helpful.  It beats taking my dry regular qtip and walking from the make-up vanity to the restroom sink.Musubi Maker

Musubi Maker

My last and final awesome buy I purchased from Daiso, is the fabulous Musubi Maker. If you’re accustomed to Hawaiian BBQ, this popular snack and lunch food in Hawaii composed of a slice of grilled Spam on top of a block of rice, wrapped together with nori dried seaweed in the tradition of Japanese omusubi.

I’ve purchased a musubi maker before from Japantown,but only preps one serving. This musubi maker can create two!!! This musubi maker helps achieve maximum productivity with minimum wasted effort!! Seriously folks, finding this musubi maker is gold in my eyes. I’ve been struggling with finding the perfect heavy snack to provide for the boys during the baseball practice hour. This mold will help me solve that problem. Stay tuned for me spam musubi tutorial within the next week or two!

So that’s it! My Daiso haul. I typically go to Daiso a few times a month, but always for the same things. Re-stocking in false lashes, getting a few Asian snacks for the boys, or when I have the itch for some new office supplies. What are your favorite items to buy at Daiso? Let me know!!
