Hullabalu:: Gruffalo

When I was contacted by Hullabalu to test out one of their stuffed animals for Zane I was extremely excited because Zane has an obsession with 'babies' as he calls them so I thought this would be perfect for him! 
We got to choose any one of the babies from their site and have him sent to live with us. 
Well we chose Gruffalo who is an adorable monster... 
I chose him because I thought he was just hilarious & Zane LOVES him! 






We are loving the newest addition to our family!
Thanks Hullabalu. 

They gave me a personal reference link to share with you so that you can check them out too! https://hullabalu.com/invite/K7XJAPLN2J/

No nonsense tights & leggings

I really love fashion but I am not the most fashionable person in the world but I love getting ideas from other people and now Pinterest of course and then make them my own. So when I got the opportunity to review a pair of tights and a pair of leggings from No nonsense I was so excited because I know a great pair of colored tights or leggings can really jazz up any outfit.
I thought that along with taking some pictures of my actual outfits I'd make one for a pair of the leggings in a fun color on Polyvore because the No nonsense tights & leggings are just so much fun!

no nonsense tights by libbyuglesich featuring vintage hair accessories

This outfit that I came up with for the tights uses the ever popular Chambray shirt dress from GAP, a cute pair of dark gray biker boots from GAP also, a cuddly striped scarf from Old Navy, a Michael Kors watch & a couple cute bracelets, and a cute headband from Lillypie Accessories Etsy shop.

I got some of their black leggings & they are the most comfortable leggings ever.
I actually wore them while in the hospital after having Lilah because they were so comfy.
They were so soft & fit me perfectly even though I had just had a baby.
I think this outfit of black leggings, black tank top, big dark purple sweater, & some comfy boots is just so simple for winter...
plus it's easy to wear & after just having a baby that's what I am looking for in all my clothes!



I also received the multi floral openworks tights and they are so adorable.
I decided to pair them with my little black dress, a colorful pair of ballet flats, & a cute sweater for a night out with my husband.
They are sexy so they are perfect for a date night out with James.
Because with two kids now they are few & far between.




All the No nonsense tights & leggings can be found easily at food and drugstores.
Also they are so affordable which is awesome because tights & leggings are essential to all women's wardrobes.
You can check them out on Facebook here and on Twitter here.

Find your pair of affordable No nonsense tights and leggings here. I was sponsored by No nonsense for this opportunity. All opinions are my own.

Books or reading.
I love a good book.
Reading is a favorite pastime.
I'd read all the time if I had the time.
But with having a 2 year old & now a newborn here...
there is no time to read!
I sure miss it though.
Maybe someday I'll have time again.

The beautiful state that I live in.
I love it.
I have never lived in any other state but I would never want to.
It is so gorgeous here...
you can't get much greener than when you live in Oregon
and that makes for some beautiful scenery.

But the cute cuddly ones.

I know it's November but I am so thankful for Octobers.
My birthday is in October so that is a big part of it.
But it is also the most beautiful month in the year in my opinion,
so being thankful for it is just a given.
