Lovey-dovey hearts

HI GUYS!!!

Happy ( almost ) Valentine’s Day!

Do you guys notice all the pinks, reds, and hearts in every store? LOL, it’s hard to miss.

Since it’s almost Valentine’s Day I figured it’s the perfect time to share some lovey-dovey heart items with you.

Side note… Once, when I was living at home ( I think it was about 2 or 3 years ago ) my mom looked around at all the stuff I had around ( my laptop, my laptop case, all of Minty‘s things ) and said with such disgust ( & in Farsi ), “I think I’m going to puke if you bring one more pink thing into the house.”

LOL. Whoops! ; )

So, when it comes to furniture and home design I lean towards neutrals ( usually white )… But when it comes to things, I love pink & I love hearts. LOL. Am I 5? ; )

Alright, enough about me… Let’s get into these cuties!

Okay, so obviously I had to find us some PJs with hearts on them—so perfect for Valentine’s Day! 😍 If I’m splurging on PJs, it’s definitely for these.

These are basically the grown up, “I’m into fashion but I make own rules” version of those bright red, heart-shaped sunglasses we all wore when we were little. Remember those? Definitely another splurge, but I’m always down to window shop ; )

These mugs are adorable ( !!! ) & even better, I love their message—the inside says, “love is love is love” all around. So perfect for Valentine’s Day & really every day. Makes for a great gift idea too!

I’m OBSESSED with my bkr bottles—& you most likely already know this. This one is especially great for Valentine’s Day. I also love this black / copper one & this baby pink / silver one. Super cute!

Okay, so I’m a big fan of writing things down on paper so I’m always kind of on the hunt for cute notebooks. This one is fun & personal because they print your name & initials on it, which I love. Also, Minted has great products. I love their quality.

ban.do is SO MUCH fun—this is the perfect dish to have on your nightstand. Doesn’t it just make you smile? : )

These pens are great! They’re cute but practical & also look great on Instagram ( let’s be real, that’s part of their appeal ; ) LOL ) But really, they’re great pens—I love writing with them.

Okay, how are you guys getting ready for Valentine’s Day?

If you’re looking for a quick and easy VDAY recipe ( something sweet ), definitely try these chocolate covered strawberries. They’re delicious & VERY easy to make.

Bita

My ONE Goal for 2017

[ Mug | Pretty embroidery on this maxi dress ]

[ Monogram mug | metal strawsweater ]

Can you believe it’s almost 2017? GAH!

I can’t believe it!

I stumbled across this video by Tony Robbins the other day and I feel like it’s spot on with how to create happiness and reach your New Year’s Resolutions / goals ( so obviously I have to share it with you. It’s too good not to! )

Basically, Tony says it comes down to creating PROGRESS by creating new HABITS.

And for me, specifically, it also comes down to FOCUS.

I’m really ( REALLY! ) terrible at following the principle of “The ONE Thing“. But I believe in it… & it’s something I’m working on.

So this year, I’m focusing on ONE goal and ONE habit ⇢ fitness, working out every morning.

If you want to have an awesome year ( & why wouldn’t you? ), DEFINITELY check out this video—think about one area in your life you’d like to make better & what habit will help you get there… Help you make progress. I think you’ll love the video!

Tony shares his 4 steps for making progress towards the end of the video so I made a little cheat-sheet for us ( below ) to refer back to / pin.

If you guys go through Tony’s process ( or even if you don’t ) I’d LOVE to hear what your 2017 goals are. LOL I’m totally serious… I’ve asked / talked about 2017 goals with my boyfriend & his sister so many times now, it’s kind of become a joke.

But, I REALLY want to know. I love this stuff! So shoot me an email ( bita@joyfetti.com ), comment below or on Instagram, or tweet me… However you’d like. I’d love to hear from you! : )

Switching gears for a moment, I want to give a shout out to tobi.com for sending me this super comfy, huge ( just the way I wanted, LOL ) navy sweater & this maxi dress ( both pictured above ).

I’ve been snuggled up in this sweater all day & probably will be for a good chunk of winter. I’m definitely packing it for our next Tahoe trip!

I feel like baggy sweaters are a staple during winter. Don’t you think? Especially solids. I love solids!

Okay… I’m going to bed so I can wake up early-ish ( LOL ) and go to the gym in the morning & run. Wish me luck ; )

HAPPY NEW YEARS!

I hope you have a safe & amazing NYE!

Bita

Snuggle up in These Cute, Cozy Socks!

fun-cozy-socks_joyfetti-com

[ All from Target & $6 or less! LOVE IT! ]

Hi guys!

If you know me, you know I’m always cold.

My idea of perfect weather is when everyone else is dripping with sweat. 

So, as you can imagine, I’ve been pretty cold the past few weeks. Which is why I started looking for some cute, comfy socks to wear around the house.

Picture yourself snuggled up on the couch in some cute loungewear and a pair of these socks sipping on a hot toddy ( full disclosure… I’ve never tried a hot toddy but I really want to try one! Maybe I’ll make one this week. )

So I went straight to Target ( .com, LOL! ) because I feel like they always have cute, seasonal socks that don’t cost a fortune.

These are all $2-$6 ( !!!! ) LOVE IT!

#HANGRY 3-PACK SOCKS

Okay, I love these because they couldn’t be more perfect for me. Yes, I get hangry. Don’t you? ; )

SANTA WITH GIFT SOCKS

These are just so cute. I love Santa’s little nose.

RED STRIPE SOCKS

Don’t these remind you of candy cane? I love ’em! This shorter version is cute too!

SANTA PULL-ON SOCKS

This is perfect when you want to keep your feet warm, but you don’t want to cover your legs. If you like pull-on socks, check these out too!

Okay, if you’ve seen other cute, comfy socks leave a link to them below so we can all check ’em out!

HAPPY ( almost ) THANKSGIVING! : )

Did You Know? Teal Is the New Orange.

[ Teal pumpkin + JOY Consulting Co. business cards + cute bunny thumbtacks! ]

HI GUYS!!

I didn’t get very festive for Halloween ( I did put out 3 white pumpkins next to the TV. LOL! Does that count? You saw them on Snap. ) BUT—if we lived in an area that got trick-or-treaters, I’d FOR SURE put out A TEAL PUMPKIN.

Here’s why:

FARE, which stands for Food Allergy Research & Education, is making Halloween more exciting & FUN for kids with food allergies through their “Teal Pumpkin Project“.

They explain:

“Every child should be able to experience the joy and tradition of trick-or-treating on Halloween. But kids with food allergies are often left out of the fun, since most candy is off limits.

FARE’s Teal Pumpkin Project helps make sure all children will come home on Halloween night with something they can enjoy. It just takes one simple act: offering non-food treats, such as glow sticks or small toys, as an alternative to candy.

Last year, households from all 50 states and 14 countries participated. This is a worldwide movement to create a safer, happier Halloween for all trick-or-treaters.”

To participate:

[ The Mint Ball! ]

the-teal-pumpkin-project_minty-looking_joyfetti-com

[ Staring into the yonder. ]

the-teal-pumpkin-project_minty-stare_joyfetti-com

Some of my favorite items to have on hand are bubbles ( YES, PLEASE! ), mini slinkies ( such a throwback, I love it! ), bouncy balls, temporary tattoos & fun stickers! Basically all the things we wanted in our goody bags when we were little, minus the candy.

Okay, SO! If you participate ( I hope you do! ) share a photo of your teal pumpkin on social & tag @JOYFETTI & @foodallergy so we can see!!

This year ( like I do most years, HA! ) we’re taking my niece & nephew trick-or-treating and then checking out the neighborhood where I grew up—the houses go ALL OUT there! I love it! We’ll do a little walky walky & a little sippy sippy ; ) I’ll share it on Snapchat so be sure to come along! ( username ⇢ JOYFETTI )

Happy ( almost ) Halloween!!!

A Fun Surprise With POPSUGAR Must Have Box

[ Minty modeling ; ) ]

[ POPSUGAR September Must Have Box full of goodies!! LOVE LOVE LOVE! ]

You guys, a few weeks ago I did a little—no, BIG ( LOL, let’s be honest )—happy dance when I got the POPSUGAR September Must Have Box in the mail.

POPSUGAR was hosting this little promo with bloggers so I entered thinking who knows, maybeeee I’ll get selected LOL. I didn’t know if I’d make the cut.

And no, I’m not having a little boo-hoo me moment, trust me, I’m not…

It’s just the idea of getting the POPSUGAR Box sounded SO amazing I KNEW there’d be a bunch of bloggers trying to get in on the promo.

So when the box actually came in the mail… I was… Surprised.

And SOOOO happy. LOL. Can you blame me?

I feel like the fun thing about subscription boxes is it breaks up your routine… You know? Sometimes work / life / school it can feel too routine, like you’re on a hamster wheel, just going through the motions… So a fun package in the mail is a very welcomed surprise.

That’s part of the fun with online shopping too, right? You get a rush when you buy something, and another rush when it arrives in the mail. Pretty awesome.

[ Awesome Briogeo deep conditioning mask from the box. It smells sooooo good AND it works! ]

[ These GFB Bites, also from the box, were delicious! ]

BUT! The best part about the POPSUGAR Must Have Box? They send you items you actually WANT.

So simple, right? LOL. They nail it with the products.

For example… I’d been eyeing this Briogeo deep conditioning mask for monthssss. Why didn’t I buy it yet? No idea.

It’s all over Instagram and I kept thinking “OMG I have to try this” but I didn’t get it yet.

It was in the box. POPSUGAR to the rescue. LOL.

It smells aaaamazing AND it works. I was SO, SO excited!!

[ Minty wanted in on the fun, too. HA! ]

Another standout? I’ve been slacking on my at-home manis so this adorable NCLA Mani E.R. kit came right in time. I think it was a sign I have to get back on it…?

But really, take a look…?

Isn’t it the perfect kit to take with you on the go? In your purse… On a vacation… To have in your car? It’s perfect. Right?

I’m super excited about it! And I’m definitely taking it with me on my next trip.

popsugar-must-have-box_september_ncla-mani-er

So hopefully this has been fun ( LOL )… Hearing about how excited / obsessed / happy I am that POPSUGAR sent me this Must Have Box to try, but I’m REALLY exited I get to share the fun with you too!

POPSUGAR gave me a special coupon code ( SHOP5 ) so you can get $5 off your FIRST POPSUGAR Must Have Box. SO COOL, right? P.S. I’m not getting a commission off the code, just sharing the fun! Plus, I feel like it’s an awesome gift to give someone during the holidays!

You can see what was in previous boxes in “Past Boxes” here if you want to take a peek! It’s fun!

I LOVE this item from the July box. So cute!

Okay, dish… What are you hoping will be in the October Box? Let’s guess… : ) Leave a comment on Instagram with #MustHaveBox.

Bita
