Staying Organized with jimmyCASE

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great holiday season thus far. There are only a few more days left until Christmas and I’m trying to get all of my last minute gift-wrapping done! I recently was at the store buying some gifts and had an experience I think all of us ladies can relate to…. I couldn’t find my wallet! It took me a second to realize that my wallet wasn’t lost… my cards were just located in the new iPhone wallet I recently got from jimmyCASE! You may not have heard of them but it’s my new favorite cell phone accessory and here’s why!




When I got my driver’s license, I bought my first wallet to stick it in and I remember being so excited! While I brought that wallet with me everywhere during high school and college, I was CONSTANTLY losing it. Among having my wallet, phone, car keys, and more all stuffed in my purse, I could never keep track of where everything was and I was always freaking out about losing something important.

I recently became a new mom and before I had my son, I knew I needed to get better organized since my days would soon be revolving around changing diapers, nap times and diaper bags! I tried looking for a better compact wallet but couldn’t find anything I liked. I was approached by jimmyCASE to do a product review for their iPhone card holder and I instantly knew their products were something that would work for me.

As I looked at the jimmyCASE’s iphone wallet cases and I instantly loved the variety of colors they had to choose from.  They have solid colors and stripes options along with the protective bumper and mahogany back.  I went with the orange/blue iphone wallet and here are some thoughts about the case I received:

-         - I was pretty skeptical about the case’s ability to keep all of the cards intact (With how the case is layed out it just looks like those cards are going to fall out!) but when I received the jimmyCASE I was instantly surprised at how tight the elastic pocket it. It has the perfect amount of elasticity, making it easy to put your cards/ID in, yet nothing can fall out! I put my 2 credit cards & my ID in the case they fit great!
-          - I really loved the bumper on this case. My son loves to grab my phone and literally right after I put this case on my son dropped my phone and the jimmyCASE protected it really well!

Overall I think the jimmyCASE is a great product, especially if you’re looking to simplify your life and have all of your essential cards & ID in one place. It’s taken me a little bit to get use to where my cards are but now that they’re located with my phone, it’s so much easier to stay organized. We are upgrading our phones in the New Year so I’m definitely going to be looking at the iPhone 7 card holder as my new iPhone case from jimmyCASE.

Planning Our New Year's Eve With Groupon Coupons


This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own. 

... I know, try to say it three times fast. Groupon Coupons, Groupon Coupons, Groupon Coupons! While it may be hard to say, saving on your favorite brands has never been easier.

I'd say that most of us are familiar with the Groupon site, (visit my previous post here if you're not!) but did you know they have a Groupon Coupons section that features just about everything? They have coupons from Fandango to Dominos, from Urban Outfitters to Walmart! I love using the coupon section of Groupon, especially when I want to save on brands not normally featured on their deal section.

I know that Christmas is just a few days away but I'm always planning and thinking ahead (yes Mom, I have you to blame for that!) and I can't wait for New Year’s Eve! Even though we have a little baby, I still want to be able to enjoy a fun date night with my hubby. Here's how I'm using Groupon Coupons for this upcoming holiday! 

On Groupon Coupons, I can find exclusive discounts for Care.com, which will help us find a reliable babysitter that can watch our son while we go out. They're offering 20% off a one (1) month membership or 20% off a yearly membership—both such great offers! They also offer pet care services, housekeeping, and senior care, making it a site with something for everyone.

On Groupon Coupons, I can also find deals on some shimmery NYE dresses from Bebe to dress in style for one of my favorite nights of the year! Right now there's a code for Free Shipping on all Bebe orders and their NYE Dresses are starting at $69! 

I love celebrating the holidays with the ones I love, and being able to save money while doing it is always an added plus! Thanks Groupon Coupons! :)

Treat Yourself with Health, Beauty, and Wellness Groupons

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.
With a new baby in the house, we have a lot more expenses now and have had to start figuring out some different ways to save here and there on our budget. If there's one thing I believe more than anything as a new mom, it's that you need to treat yourself every once in a while in order for you to be your best self for your baby! 
While I've never been one to spend a lot on pampering myself, so I love looking at the Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons in my area! I'm sure you've all heard of Groupon, the amazing deal site with everything from electronics, vacation deals, to discounts on food and concerts. 
Since becoming a new mom I've utilized Groupon more than ever and I've loved the Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons I've found! I love to get my eyebrows tinted, and I try to treat myself to a facials and massage every now and then so I'm constantly checking Groupon for all of their best offers. 
When signing up for Groupon you can choose to receive their daily emails that include all of their current offers in whatever categories you prefer. I really love getting emails about the Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons because I'm able to see the offers right as they go live  and can purchase them before they sell out! I recently purchased a couples massage for me and my husband on Groupon and it only cost $79, which is an insane deal! 


Groupon is one of the best budget-friendly deal sites for new moms and anyone that wants to treat themselves to some pampering without having to spend full price!

November Blog Recap


It’s been a COLD couple of days here in Utah and I’ve been cuddling up inside with some hot chocolate, a good book, and some knit socks from my favorite online retailer Zaful. It’s hard to believe that Christmas is less than a month away and I’ve still got so much to do! I’ve been trying to get back into blogging more even with working full-time and being a new mom. Here’s a recap of some posts I did in November in case you missed any!

The Last of Fall & Black Friday Sales Preview







Lately we have loved taking walks around our downtown neighborhood and the leaves are not disappointing this year! I love living in Utah this time of year and I especially love wearing comfy sweaters. It’s been unusually warm here this year so I have been wearing lightweight sweaters non-stop, including this striped drop-shoulder sweater from Zaful.


I’ve talked about Zaful here on the blog before, see my posts HERE, HERE, AND HERE. I love their products and they are having a HUGE discount sale on so many of their products for Black Friday. Their November Mega Sale is going on right now and you can save up to 85% off! They also have a ton of coupons that are first-come first-serve so head over to their site now to find some inexpensive, cute clothing for winter! 

What will you be shopping for on Black Friday? We don't have any big items we are eyeing so we'll just be browsing the $3 movies and relaxing at home without all the crowds. Online shopping is where it's at!

The Perfect Fall Dress featuring Shop Tobi











After having Kade, I’ve had a hard time finding cute dresses for fall that flatter my new mom-bod (seriously…your body changes so much after a baby, it’s unreal!!) This Long Journey Sweater Dress from Tobi is super flattering with its front cowl neckline and shift-style length. The sweater material makes this dress perfect for fall time and I love that I can dress this piece up for a night out with my husband or can pair it with a comfy sweater and booties for the office or church.  I chose to take a risk with this outfit and pair it with my new knee-high boots I recently got. Knee-high boots are super out of my comfort zone but I really like the way they make this outfit stand out versus if I’d just paired this dress with simple flats.
Like I’ve mentioned in my previous posts featuring ShopTobi (see HERE and HERE), if you sign up for the daily email list on their website, you will receive 50% off your first order!! This is a limited time offer though so make sure to go check out their site now!

Park City Weekend ft. Shop Tobi









We’ve been spending the week up in Park City with my family and it’s absolutely beautiful up here right now! I love seeing all of the leaves change and getting to layer and wear warmer clothes makes it really feel like fall.
Like I mentioned in my previous post, rust is becoming one of my favorite colors this season and I’ve been wearing this Spectrum Hooded Anorak Jacket from Tobi nonstop!  This jacket goes perfectly with just about anything in my closet and the fabric is super comfortable. Tobi has so many great jackets for fall and if you sign up for the daily email list on their website, you will receive 50% off your first order!! This is a limited time offer though so make sure to go check out their site now!

I’ve got one more item from Tobi that I can’t wait to share with you so come back tomorrow to see my next Shop Tobi look!
