Hey! So everyone probably already knows Converse, the brand that makes all those cute shoes? Well, they have a clothing line now, and Target has it all! I got this adorableee cheetah print dress (haha, shirt) that’s really cute and ruffly! I have a few other pieces from this brand, and I think you guys would really love the designs they have to offer! Perfect for girls who love sparkles, ruffles, animal prints, cute belts, etc. A must-have for any hijabi hottie!

IT HAPPENED!!! IT REALLY HAPPENED!!! Yesterday, at Macy’s Department Store, on 34th and Broadway in New York City, Ashley’s dream of meeting THE BIEBS actually came true!!! She hasn’t stopped smiling and now she has come down with an even MORE severe case of “BIEBER FEVER”…what’s a girl to do…but dream of the Biebs!!! So I guess I should tell you how this all happened…..Let me start from the beginning…
Okay, the Bieber Fever has been circulating through Ashley’s blood for about a year and a half now. Ever since Christi Robinson, one of the three sisters that made the “Message to Justin Bieber” video, came to babysit Ashley, Olivia and their friend Anna Scott one night. Christi and her friend showed the three girls a video on the TV of this “new guy” named Justin who they thought was totally cute! Well, that night, Anna Scott fell in complete “love” and couldn’t stop talking about Justin and how she HAD to marry him, which completely tickled Ashley. For months, every time the topic of Justin Bieber came up, Ashley would get this HUGE smile on her face and talk about how funny Anna Scott was. After a while, I was noticing that Ashley was talking about Justin quite a bit and I asked her, “Are you sure YOU’RE not in love with him too???” She denied it for quite a while, but she was totally see-through and I knew that her crush was building all along. Once she FINALLY admitted it, Justin became a continuous presence in Ashley’s world…..she was always singing his songs in the car, in her room, reading articles about him, watching his videos on YouTube, hanging poster after poster in her room, etc. (I have to admit, when I was a few years older than her, I had the same type of obsession with the group Duran Duran…..my bedroom was WALLPAPERED with their posters, their records (haha) were ALWAYS playing on my record player, and here’s the EXTRA funny part…..I even had FILE FOLDERS labeled with each band member’s name on them and inside I listed their birthdays, their favorite things, cutouts of each from TeenBeat magazines….can you say Type A???….I consider myself “Type A/B” now, but honestly, my parents should’ve locked me up then!!!)
Wellllllll, I’m officially borrrrrrrrrrred……… might go to the beach, tho!

Simple Handcrafted Body Care.
If you like this recipe, you’re going to love the booklet!
About three weeks ago our daughter (still so strange to say ‘daughter’ after 6 years of having only boys!) started developing eczema, just like our boys did as babies. Our oldest didn’t have it all that bad, just around his ankles and elbows, our second son had it much worse. He had it all over his face, arms and legs. I tried everything for him and what worked best was my homemade lotion. Strangely enough what cured his eczema for good was going to Kauai and taking him off cows milk during the trip. I had read that cows milk sometimes either causes eczema or worsens it and I’m sure the humidity of the Hawaiian islands helped a lot. Even though our Sonoma air is quite arid, his skin has remained clear. Now, though, the thought of taking a five hour flight with three kids just to cure my daughters poor skin condition seems a little excessive, so I turned back to lotions.
My homemade lotion hasn’t been helping her quite as much as it helped my son. The doctor suggested either Vaseline and hydrocortisone lotion for the worst parts. I don’t know, I wasn’t happy with either of those suggestions, so I searched for something more natural to slather her with. I have a jar of shea butter in the cupboard for my homemade deodorant, so I scraped some out, warmed it in my hands and put that on her poor little face. That seemed to really help, however it was a pain to warm up and spread on her. I searched for an easy to make and easy to spread Shea Butter lotion recipe and did some research on some eczema fighting ingredients and came up with the recipe below. While I can’t claim that it has cured her eczema, it certainly has helped her poor face, chest and arms. It also makes a great hand salve for me too during these cold, dry days.
Today I was sick so I left school early during 2nd period. Now it is 9:14 p.m. and we are watching TV, and I played for like an hour on my favorite app, “Draw Something”. Memorial Day weekend is here! Yay!!!!!
Well, gotta go broski’s,
