our little mermaid.

Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's List

A couple of weeks ago, our little Lou turned seven.  She wanted a mermaid party inspired by her last Halloween costume.  It was so much fun designing the details.

However, I had the brilliant idea of surprising the girls with goldfish thinking that they could double as centerpieces.  (I know, I am a maniac.)  I figured it was a great lesson in responsibility.  Much to my chagrin, my girls are far more responsible than I thought… I also learned that these goldfish can live up to 40 years.  Yowsa.Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListBut they love them.  Lou named hers Sparkles, and E named hers Lucky.Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListJust two more animals on this crazy farm… but back to the decorations…

Whether it’s being 38, lack of sleep or genetics (or a combination of the three) the dark circles under my eyes have really been bothering me as of late.  So, I did extensive research, tried out more than I can even imagine and have my round up of the best on the market.  Bye-Bye bags!

Summa Summa Summatime!  (Love me some DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince.)  There’s no better way to turn up a party than a great signature cocktail.  Impress your guests with one of these easy to make libations.
