Surviving the Holidays with Jetblack

^^ Charlee and I riding the bus home from school 🙂

Ok, so I know this is taboo but I am going to out my secret. Well, for those of you who have been following me for a while this isn’t really a secret! Either way, I am here to talk about my ride or die service,  Jetblack. I have been using this service since April of this year and since I began I honestly can’t imagine my life without it. You can read about how I use the app and service in this blog post on a normal basis. Having said that, we are now deep into the holiday season, and I have a new appreciation for Jetblack.

Jetblack has come to my rescue for almost every Holiday need. If you aren’t familiar with Jetblack, I’ll give you the rundown. Jetblack is a membership-only shopping service powered by expert research and personal recommendations. Simply text what you need and Jetblack will deliver it FREE with lightning speed; gift wrapping, assembly, and product expertise included always. This is the most valuable service, especially during the crazy Holiday Season. Matt and I are heading to California for Christmas which means I needed to send all of the gifts for the family to California. Instead of ordering on Amazon, Nordstrom or wherever else I wanted to order from, and having everything shipped unwrapped, I just texted Jetblack with the items I wanted to purchase as gifts. They took on the hassle of ordering the items and gift wrapping and labeling them. All I have to do is show up for Christmas and all the gifts will be there ready to be unwrapped. It’s also saved me when it comes to Xmas gifts for teachers and friends. I texted Jetblack on Monday when I realized I hadn’t gotten a gift for Charlee’s teachers. They sent over a ton of gift ideas for me to peruse, I chose what I wanted and then two days later the gifts showed up at my apartment gift-wrapped and labeled!

The best part about Jetblack is the fact that I get to spend more time with my sweet girl, rather than worrying about all the little things that tend to add up as a Mom. If you are interested in joining the Jetblack tribe, you can use the link and code below to get early access off the waitlist! We can all be super Moms together!

I hope you all have a great rest of your week! Christmas is a week away!

Hi Friends! Can you believe it’s less than two weeks until Xmas?! I can’t get over how close we are to the Holidays. We got back a few weekends ago from NC where we spent almost a week with my side of the family for Thanksgiving. It was so much fun! My sister and I hosted Thanksgiving at her house and cooked for 24 hours. It was intense but everything came out so delicious! I must say I am really proud of us.

Last year I put together a bunch of extensive Holiday Shopping lists for each member of the family. This year, I am just going to write out a few items I purchased and am looking forward to gifting the people in my life since I feel like everyone and their Mom is putting together these lists! I also am so busy with work and life in general so I hope you forgive me for the lack of shopping lists this year! Take a look at the list below on some of the items I have been coveting recently. I’m also sharing some random links and resources that I think you guys would find interesting!

  1. I just purchased this makeup remover towel and I am obsessed. I have been looking for a more eco-friendly way to remove makeup and this is amazing!
  2. I went to TJ maxx for a ton of xmas presents for Charlee. They have an incredible gift department filled with Melissa and Doug toys! What I didn’t realize was that you could buy the toys online. Look!
  3. I just bought Charlee these new snow boots and they are so cozy and cute. Under $35
  4. These pajamas are amazing. Make sure to size up though as they run super small. I bought a large and I’m usually a small on top and a medium on bottom
  5. I am trying Cranial Therapy tomorrow to help with my neck pain. I am actually feeling a bit better but I want to try something new and this came highly recommended. I’ll keep you guys posted on how it goes
  6. I love a Woodwick candle. They smell so good
  7.  Matt got me this amazing pillow for Xmas and gave it to me early. I can’t say enough about this pillow. It’s so comfortable and supposed to be great for your skin
  8.  Have you listened to the new Celine Dion album Courage? I can’s top listening! I am heading down to NC in late January to see Celine perform in Charlotte with my sister. I can’t WAIT!
  9. This month in book club we are reading Demi Moore’s new memoir, Inside Out. It’s so good and an easy read. I’m looking forward to discussing it next month!
  10. Have you listened to Celine Dion’s new CD Courage? It may be my new favorite!!!
