IPSY August 2014



School is in session! This month's theme is Beauty Schooled. 
So it is only appropriate that this month's bag is shaped as a pencil case. 
I enjoyed majority of the items in this bag. Some of these items/brands I've never heard of. This is one of the great things about the monthly subscription (which is $10/month!!) is that you can test out new products without forking over a larger amount of money.

DIY Birthday Banner With PicMonkey (Despicable Me Theme)



Today I am bring you another DIY using PicMonkey! Like I said in my previous video/post I am not sponsored by PicMonkey. I just like using their site for editing videos, creating collages and much more. 
The purpose of DIY-ing (don't really think that's a word lol) is to customize my party gear. The Despicable Me Party supplies that I found at the party store were very boyish to me so I decided to create my own.

DIY Despicable Me Invitations Using Pic Monkey



Like any parent, I plan maybe a year to a few months in advance my daughter's birthday. I always try to make it special. After all she was a huge surprise for us three years ago! (Time sure flies!)
I look through Pinterest and Etsy for inspiration. If you need inspiration I have a board dedicated to Birthday Ideas: Despicable Me
Follow Maritza's board Birthday Ideas - Despicable Me on Pinterest.
I absolutely love Etsy but sometimes those customized invites can become pricey. Don't get me wrong I truly support small businesses but sometimes your budget can become play a factor in your purchases.
