Coobie Seamless Bra Review and Giveaway

Recently I shared about a great post on how to get 25% off the Coobie Seamless Bra.  They claim to be the most comfortable bra, and you know what, they are!  I was sent a new bra for this review, and have some exciting new for my readers at the end of this post. All opinions in this post are 100% mine.  

There are several different styles of the Coobie Seamless Bra, the scoop neck (pictured), the v neck, the comfort bra, the nursing bra, and the lace bralette, and more.  My own personal favorite is the scoop neck.  I had no idea what color I was going to receive to review, so I was very excited to see it was one of my favorite colors.  They are 70+ color and patterns available, so there many, many choices to choose from. 

The different styles are available in different sizes to fit most..

Scoopneck  (One size: 32A-36D) or (Full size: 38A-42DD)

 V-Neck with Lace (One size: 32A-36D) or (Full size: 38A-42DD)

 Nursing Bra (One size: 32A-36D) or (Full size: 38A-42DD)

 Comfort Bra (S: 30-34) (M: 34-36) (L: 38-42) (XL: 42-48) 

 Classic Lace Bralette (S: 28A-32D) (M: 32A-34D) (L: 36A-38D)

The straps are adjustable for different body types, and the pads are removable when washing. You can see in the picture above a small slit on the side where the pads can easily be taken out and put back in.  This is a great feature to have because it keeps the pads in great shape.  

I definitely recommend the Coobie Seamless Bra, it really is a super comfortable bra!

Dare to Share #240

It is Friday night, and you know what that means.. 
It is time to Dare to Share!!  

A little update from last week. I am now toasty warm.  The thermostat was fixed. It ended up just being a blown fuse. We got it fixed just in time. It was in the mid 70s today, and it will be in the 30s with a chance of snow over the weekend.   Tonight my life group and I went out to see Hacksaw Ridge. It was a really good movie, but I had to close my eyes for part of it. It is a war movie, so there is a lot of blood. I am not so good with blood and gore. 😵 

This week I shared how we put together the  Cinderella Tower Photo Booth

The Dare to Share Feature would make an amazing dessert for your Thanksgiving table.  How to make White Chocolate Pumpkin Cheesecake by Simple Stacie.

Cinderella Tower Photo Booth

Recently I shared about my really big birthday.  Since it was the weekend of Halloween, my party was costume themed, and I was Cinderella.  It is not often that I get to dress up like a princess, so this was the perfect time. I knew I wanted to have a photo booth at my party, and decided to decorate it to match my costume.  This is how I made my Cinderella Tower Photo Booth. 

I had access to several moving boxes, which I knew were the perfect size for the towers.  I used 4 large, and 2 medium.  A friend helped me to stack them into tall towers and tape them together with shipping tape  We did it in such a way that it could be removed, and the boxes could be used again 

Using the rock wall backdrop that I talked about in my birthday post, a friend and I wrapped the box towers.  Sorry for the blurry pic. We were decorating late the night before the party, and did not have a lot of light.  

This picture has a better view of the rock backdrop.  I also hung a clock fan that had the hands just before midnight.  I believe this was originally a New Years Eve decoration.

Beside the booth was all kind of props, and frames that could be used when taking pictures. 

We had a lot of fun posing in the tower photo booth.

Dare to Share #239

It is Saturday morning, and you know what that means... 
It is time to Dare to Share! 

You may wonder why the party did not go live last night at least on my blog. It's because it was very cold (Brrrrrrrr)  outside. My thermostat is really old and it recently stopped working. Last night the temperature  got below freezing.  I went to my Friday small group and afterwards talked with a friend for a few hours. I ended up staying at her house where there was heat, but my computer was at home.  So now with a few hour delay here is the party. 

You may have noticed on the blog this week, my post about Coobie Seamless Bras. I have posted about them before, because I LOVE them and they really are my most favorite bra ever. They are currently have a good sale, which you can read more about on my post. 

The feature this week, is Lambie's No Churn Pink Party Ice Cream by Views from the Ville.  Ice cream is one of my most favorite foods ever, and the fact that it is pink with marshmallows in it all the better. 

It is almost time for Elf on the Shelf to return to houses everywhere.  If you have on returning to your house, you might want to print this Elf Kisses Printable by my co-host Kim from Kandy Kreations.  

Now it is time for this week's party.  You are welcome to share anything that you would like to share. If you are chosen as a feature your post will be featured on the blog and social media. This party is seen on Kandy Kreations for double exposure.  Kim also chooses posts to feature on her blog and social media.

The Big Birthday Post

As I have mentioned recently, this past weekend was a pretty big day. It still does not feel real, and I am having some trouble wrapping my head around the new number.  I had a really big birthday.  Being a party planner, I had been thinking about what I wanted to do for the last several months. I knew it was not going to be a big fancy party.  It is not my style or in my budget. One thing I knew for sure is I wanted it to be with  my friends, and I wanted to dress up as my favorite princess since it was Halloween weekend   At the end of September, Oriental Trading asked if I would like to review some of their party supplies. The timing was perfect! The sent me the items for my honest review. I will be sharing what they sent me in this post as well as how we celebrated.  

The party was held at the house of one of my friends.  We knew we wanted to bring some Halloween elements in, but not have it be too scary or gory.   We decided to do some Cinderella themed decor, considering I was a princess and all.  We set up a few tables for people to sit at while eating,  The one her family room was in the middle of the action.   On this table I used black table covering cut to size, and candelabra centerpieces from Oriental Trading. The white table runners I found on clearance at Target a few years ago.  I made the Cinderella pumpkins and glitter 50.  The crown was from the dollar section of Michaels. The Cinderella dresses I found at the Target dollar spot last year.  I loved how it turned out. 

Here is a close up of the Candelabra Centerpiece made from foam with glow in the dark wicks.  It was not dark enough at our party to see if they glowed, but they held up very well and can be used more than once.  They come apart and can be stored flat.  

I painted a few dollar store pumpkins Cinderella blue and added a ton of glitter.   

I knew we would be taking a lot of pictures, so I wanted to set up a photo booth.  I used painted picture frames that we used at my daughter's art themed birthday party.  I had a few hats, and photo props that  people used for pictures. 

Continuing with the Cinderella theme, the photo booth was two castle towers made with boxes and the stone wall backdrop. I will be showing how I made them in another post.  The countdown clock fan is currently on clearance, and made the perfect touch since Cinderella only had until midnight before she had to leave the ball. 

Above the tower, we hung a Cinderella add an age birthday banner, which had enough space for a double digit birthday.  

The girls are posing with the stick costume photo props which had mostly lips and glasses. There are many, many different themes and styles to choose from though if you are having a specific theme. 

In this picture I was getting ready to blow the candles out on my cake.  In the background you can see some of the balloons from Oriental trading.  Since I was the birthday girl at this party, I was not able to take a ton of pictures like I normally do.  You may notice that I do not have pictures of the food. My friends told me they were taking over a lot of the planning, and surprised me with a lot of things, including the food.  We ate macaroni and cheese, bbq meatballs, shrimp, cheese and crackers and salad. It was all very good, but I did not get a picture. 

I was also surprised with this big, yummy birthday cake.  I believe it was from Costco. It fed a lot of people and there was plenty of cake leftover.  

We were able to do a multi frame group shoot with several of my closest friends. They really helped make my big day extra special.
