Face Paint Kit for Kids




This is a professional style cosmetic face painting kit from by Blisstime. All the kids I know and I even loved face painting as a kid. Face painting at the holiday gatherings and parties in general were always even more fun when face paint was involved. My kids loved having their faces painted and my Grand Kids do too. This kit is great for Parties, carnivals, Halloween make up, stage performances and more. 

The kit comes with everything you need to bring some fun to any party. Comes with 15 colors of face or body paint, a total of 12 brushes, 4 sheets of stencils, 4 sheets or temporary tattoos, and 2 pots of glitter.

The face paint itself is like powdered eye shadow out of the compact but when used with a few drops of water on the compact or even a wet paint brush it makes the paint. The paints are well pigmented and should last the better part of the day. The face paint is Hypoallergenic, non toxic, natural and FDA-compliant. It is made with cosmetic grade makeup ingredients. The face paint dries pretty quickly and is easy to wash off with soapy water or wet wipes even.

The Sweetheart Wedding Game Gift from Elenato




The Sweetheart Wedding Game Gift from Elenato is a super cool idea for any wedding. In the box is a super huge linen backdrop measuring 79 inches by 71 inches. It is about the size of a queen size bed top sheet. You get a pink and a blue pair of small scissors, 90 stuffed silk hearts in white, pink, dark pink, purple, and red, and you get an instruction booklet. The instruction booklet gives you a couple variations on how to play or use the game.

The main theme of the game is to give the bride and the groom both a pair of scissors and they start cutting the center heart out from the bottom up and the first to get to the top center wins. All the while the Maid of Honor and the best man is tossing the little silk hearts towards them, like confetti.

Other variations of the game can be instead of using it as a game you could use it as a photo prop to take pictures in front of, you could have all of the wedding guests sign the backdrop with wishes or whatever. Which would make a great keepsake.

This is such a cute idea for any wedding. The game is new and unique. I have been to many weddings and have never seen a game like this.

48 Bulk Happy Birthday Cards by SUPHOUSE



I have a huge family which includes our 4 grown kids and 11 grand kids. It seems like there is always a birthday. So buying cards in bulk is a great idea for me but usually when you buy boxed cards you usually either get all adult or all kids or just random cards with random sayings, and you can tell they came out of a box by the thin cheap look and feel to them.

This set of bulk birthday cards by Suphouse fixes all of that. There are 48 cards in 6 different designs. These are great for kids and adults and gender neutral. The inside is blank so I can add whatever saying, picture, or just a private note. The cards are not the thin cheap boxed card kind either. You can really feel the quality of each of these cards, Included is also envelopes for each card and a sticker to seal the envelope with. They all come in a nice cardboard box that will not fall apart quickly.

The designs are very cute. The cards designs are very colorful in bright happy colors. The designs are:
1. A large black balloon that says Happy in white and birthday in multiple colored letters.
2. Happy birthday in large colorful letters
3. Happy Birthday with colorful candles
4. Happy on a colorful hanging banner and birthday below in a fancy font
5. Wishing you a Happy Birthday with a birthday hat hanging on the W
6. Wishing you the best birthday ever

Styles 2, 4, and 5 from above are in landscape and 1, 3, and 6 are in portrait. Each card is 4 x 6 inches. These cards are great for loved ones, for work, for school for everyone. And for the price you can't go wrong.

7 Halloween Costumes You Can Easily Put Together

7 Halloween Costumes You Can Easily Put
Together




Halloween is the time when adults can dress up and roam the city without looking like complete lunatics. Buying Halloween costumes might be an expensive option. You will not be wearing the vampire costume that you bought from Amazon more than once or twice. Expensive costumes are not what you need to enjoy the spirit of Halloween. You can create your own Halloween costumes at home with what you have in your closet. Here are some easy DIY costumes ideas.
Emoji
You do not have to paint yourself yellow to become an emoji. There are many human emojis that you can mimic. Buy lace front wigs with bangs online and pair them with glasses and a pink T-shirt to match the teacher Emoji. Buy lace front wigs with bangs online and put on a blue T-shirt to become the girl emoji. Going with a friend? Buy matching lace front wigs with bangs, make a pair of bunny ears, put on a black T-shirt and a pair of black shorts and wear a pair of black socks; strike the dancing girl emoji pose. Look at your phone to find the perfect  emoji costume.
Nerd
A pair of chunky glasses is pretty much all that you need to invest in. Wrap white tape around the bridge of the glasses. Wear a white shirt and pull your pants high above your waist. Put some gel in your hair and comb it flat. You can add suspenders and carry a calculator to complete the look.
Corporate Zombie
Pull out the oldest suit your own or borrow one that is bigger than you. A tattered suit from your nearest thrift store can be even better. With the corporate zombie look your make up is what completes the look. Zombie make up tutorials can help you complete your undead look.
Bee
Have you been dying to wear your yellow and black sweater but too scared you will look like a bee? Halloween is the time to pull it out from the back of your closet. Find a pair of black leggings. Take a hair band and two ping pong balls to put together your antennae. If you want to take your look further, then you can create a stinger and attach it to your leggings.
Sia
A black dress is pretty much all you need to create the base of your Sia costume. You do need to buy the two-tone lace front wigs with bangs online to complete the signature look. The giant bow can be made at home or bought from Etsy.
Instagram Photo
You literally can wear anything if you are going for this look. Just get a large cut out of the Instagram picture frame. Hold the cut out in front of you and strike poses.
Error 404
This might be the easiest costume to create for Halloween. Take a plain white T-shirt and some black paint. Write “ERROR 404- HALLOWEEN COSTUME NOT FOUND” and you are set. You can do this with any colored old plain T-shirt. You do not need makeup, you do not need accessories, and you do not need to buy lace front wigs with bangs online.

These are a few easy Halloween costumes that you can explore. For more ideas, use your imagination or search engines.

Giant Spider Decor Scary Furry 43 inch Creepy Spider




With Halloween just around the corner this awesome 43 inch Creepy Spider is just the ticket to kicking off an amazing Halloween display. The spider is sound activated. With a loud noise the spider is set into motion. He wiggles as he makes creepy noise and his eyes glow read when activated.

Great wall decor piece for Halloween. You can bend all 8 of his legs to fit into your display any way you want them. The has a ribbon hanger around his neck but your could tie strings on his legs to better hang it where and how you need it. The spiders legs are like thick pipe cleaners only a lot stiffer but they are still easily bendable. His body is made with three layers of safe, non-toxic fibers, soft fleece, industrial grade luggage material, and plastic coating. The fleece on the body makes him look more realistic.

The spider is powered by 3 AA batteries which are not included. The length of time the batteries will work depends on the quality of batteries you are using. I used the cheap Dollar Store batteries and have had him hanging and working for over a week now. He is not activated as much where I have him hanging as if he were a centerpiece to a high traffic area, but so far the batteries are still going strong.

The spider is shipped in a box 4.1 inches by  9.3 inches by 7.9 inches, and weighs about a pound. When the packaged arrived in this small of a box I was wondering how a 42 inch spider fit in there, but was greatly surprised at just how large the spider was once I started unfolding the legs. This will make storing him so much easier after Halloween.

LED Light Gloves by VIVREAL





This set of LED Light Gloves from Vivreal is just the ticket for a Halloween Costume so you can be seen very well while out Trick Ir Treating. They are also great for riding a bike a night, or just walking. They are good for stage shows or wearing to the club.

The glove material is very soft and kind of thin fabric. They do not over heat your hands and the lights shine brightly through the material. The gloves do say one size fit most. I do not have really small hands nor are my hands large. I was able to get the gloves on the fingers were a bit tight and bit long  but I was able to comfortably wear them. My husband on the other hand could not of gotten his hands in these gloves. I would say these would be great for teens and people with small hands.

The gloves are powered by 3 CR2016 button cell batteries, which are included. Pull the plastic strip out to use the gloves. The batteries are replaceable. The battery pack and function button are in the wrist area of each glove.

These gloves have 6 modes of lighting and 5 colors. Each finger is a different color. The  function button s on the battery pack. Just gently push to go through the different modes and to power on and off the gloves.

YSJ Halloween White Ghost String Lights





I personally love decorating for Halloween and am always looking for more to add to my display. I decorate inside and out of the house. This year I ran across this set of ghost lights from YJS.  There are 20 bright white LED lights on this strand. Each light has a plastic ghost attached to it. The ghosts are about 2 inches long and a little over 1 1/2 inches wide. The light strand itself is 7.22 feet long. The strand is made of copper wire with a clear plastic coating. The strand runs on 3 AA batteries which are not included. There are 2 modes of lighting, steady on and flashing. These can be used indoors or out but the battery pack is not waterproof.

These lights are great for hanging anywhere you want to add some light in your Halloween display. Since they are battery operated you don't have to worry about finding a spot near a power source or running extension cords. They are low powered so you can get several hours before having to change the batteries. The amount of time really depends on the quality of batteries you use.

They will look great anywhere you hang them. I will be hanging them over my Halloween Village. You can also incorporate them into DIY crafts by adding them to a floral display or wreath.

The Ultimate Bachelorette Party Decorations Set




I have not 1 but 2 daughters getting married soon. So I have been a busy mommy looking for items for before, during and after the wedding. Finding this set for the Bridal Shower I thought was going to be and actually it was. I was looking for a set that included pretty much everything I needed for decorating. This set comes with a very nice Veil, Bride Sash, temp tattoos, mylar balloon, regular balloons, party games, banner, and lots of photo booth props.So far this is was most complete set I have run across for the Bridal Shower.  This set will come in real handy.

The veil is actually nice enough to wear for the wedding itself. It has a ribbon around the edge and a plastic hair comb to hold it on the head.  The sash is wide and says Bride to be on it. It is white with gold lettering. The Mylar Balloon is a giant engagement ring around 3 feet tall. Where I live I can take it to most places that have balloons and get it filled for less then $1.00. There are 6 latex balloons, a couple are even filled with confetti. The large Mr and Mrs banner is card stock on a cold string, the lettering and rings at both ends are done in gold glitter. There are 20 photo booth props that say all kinds of things are are lips, mustaches, champagne glasses, and more. There are 2 sheets of games. And last but not least 1 temporary tattoos that are done in gold glitter and say Bride Tribe.

This is a great set whether you are staying in for the party or touring the town with your Bridal Party and friends.
