Mapiful Art: The Perfect Gift (for Yourself or Someone Else!)

I'm a sucker for personalization.  Any time I can personalize something, I do...especially when it's a gift!  Mapiful allows you to create custom map posters of anywhere in the world.  You can choose from established themes or design your own based on the color and layout you like.  The city you first met your significant other, your honeymoon getaway, the town your kiddos were born in, a favorite vacation destination...the possibilities for creating a meaningful, stylish gift are endless!  I custom designed my Mapiful to showcase our family farm.  It was so easy to create my own and now I have beautiful art that honors this very special place.

End-of-Summer Deals on Kids' Swimwear

Summer might be over, but it's never too early to start thinking about next summer, right?  I always scope out end-of-season sales with the next year in mind.  Lands End swim shirts/rash guards are a must in our house.  They make it so much easier to keep kids protected while they're having fun in the sun.  And now's the time to stock up because a lot of styles/colors are on sale for as low as 9 bucks!  Click here for boys' rash guards.  Click here for girls' rash guards.

Lunch Box Essential

Is everyone getting back into the swing of packing lunches?  Every time I do, I feel like I waste so many plastic baggies.  Sliced apples, crackers, sandwich, cookie...I used to zip them all up in plastic bags.  But this year, I bought bento boxes for my kids' lunch boxes and I love them!  Pottery Barn Kids makes several options, including the plastic Spencer Bento Box and the Stainless Steel Bento Box, both of which are on sale for under $20.  They have individual compartments in varying sizes that make it easy to pack everything you need for lunch without using tons of plastic bags.  Yay for efficiency and less waste!

New Fall Decor from Magnolia

The new Magnolia fall collection is nothing short of lovely and includes a lot of great decor and entertaining pieces.  I love these simple gold Napkin Rings (also available in Copper!)...they'd be the perfect addition to a crisp fall place setting.  And the wood tones of this Amari Bottle Vase are perfect for adding a touch of nature-inspired autumn warmth to a shelf or console table.
