Why Girls Love Justice

"Look at the mermaid glitter!"




It's actually called Secretly A Mermaid Body Glitter. And it's just one of the reasons why my daughter loves Justice.

She's been shopping at the store for years now, and is even a Justice Ambassador in the Girls With Heart group.

If you have a tween or teen girl in your life and have no idea what to get them, head to Justice. There seems to be something for everyone there. From bath bombs, to clothes, to stuffed animals...


Here are reason why girls love Justice!






1. The clothes are stylish and age appropriate.






I don't like clothes that reveal too much. Granted, she has been wanting to wear bikinis, but we're working on a balance.




2. There is make up. 



(Granted, Natalie can't cake it on, but we do allow light makeup.)




3. There are tons of different bags and purses. 




We have so many from Justice and they do come in handy! She uses this one as her pool bag.



4. Yup, there's even slime kits.




My daughter is part of the slime craze. She loves to make it or buy it already made.



5. Justice spreads positivity!



Sometimes girls can get mean, and Justice reminds them to be kind.



6. There's glitter sunscreen.




My daughter was excited about this. Naturally.



7. There are plenty of sales!




Look, I won't pay full price for anything. I'm cheap. Justice usually always has a sale going on, and that's when I shop. (One of my favorite sales happens on Black Friday. Everything is usually 50% off.) (You can currently get this graphic tee for only $6!)



8. You can get rewarded for shopping!




This is great for me, because I shop at Justice often with my daughter. You can sign up here and instantly get a $5 reward!



9. Yup, there are squishies. 




My daughter is obsessed with them.





So do you shop at Justice? If you like glitter, it's the place for you! I've seen grown adults shopping there--for themselves!

Hey, It's Okay

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. You can link up any day of the week. All you have to do is make a list of what you're okay about. Simple! Please do not link up a post that has nothing to do with Hey, It's Okay. It's rude and I'll delete the link.





Hey, It's Okay....



....to have not been impressed with the Scandal finale. It seemed rushed and bizarre. Rowan should be in jail for all he did. I'm just baffled.



....to have enjoyed A Quiet Place. I shared my review here.



....to have tried to get us tickets for the new Avengers movie but the theaters were sold out. Boo!



....to hope my husband and I survive with him being off work for a week. He had a bunch of leave saved up that he had to take. I'm used to doing things my way, and on my own schedule, and suddenly he's there. I think we'll be okay. We are going on some lunch dates!



....to not be going to any of the Fiesta festivities downtown. Fiesta is basically a party San Antonio throws, but there are just too many people. This is as close to Fiesta as I'll get, thanks to HEB products. (That's a homemade tart in the middle!)

6 Reasons Why You Should See A Quiet Place (No Spoilers)

"Can we go see A Quiet Place?" my daughter asked.

"Let me read some reviews first," I answered. I'm pretty lax about what movies she's able to see but if there are too many suggestive scenes, I'll veto it. However, this movie had no suggestive scenes, just horror ones. It's PG-13. Natalie has seen rated R movies. As I said, I'm pretty lax.

Plus, she's always liked terrifying things. Remember when she was a clown for Halloween?







*Shudders*


I told Natalie we could go. My son even agreed to leave his room and see it, so long as he was fed.


So we went and saw A Quiet Place, and here are my thoughts.





1. It's intriguing.




The movie is called A Quiet Place, and it really is that: quiet. The actors don't utter a word until about 30 minutes in, and it's brief. It's simply action. You'll watch, transfixed. Why is everything so quiet? Well, apparently it's some apocalypse where monsters have descended onto Earth and have started killing everyone. Unless they stay quiet.



2. John Krasinski is in it.


I've been a fan of John since it's Office days. Plus, did you catch his rendition of Bye, Bye, Bye on Lip Sync Battle? He also directed the film, and he did a wonderful job.



3. Emily Blunt is in it, too.


She's pretty spectacular. (And is John Krasinski's real life wife.) I mean, she's going to be Mary Poppins at the end of the year. Plus, she was hilarious in The Devil Wears Prada.




4. It'll remind you of the power of the love of a parent.

Of course parents will do anything for their children. And this movie shows that. (And yes, that IS the boy who played Jack Will in Wonder.)


5. The ending is fabulous.


I won't say much more about it. You must go see the movie.


6. It's not TOO scary.



Look, I'm a total wimp when it comes to horror movies. I cover my eyes. I jump. I sometimes flat out refuse to even watch it. But this movie isn't terribly frightening. I mean, yes, there are some parts where you'll jump, but I wasn't completely petrified. My daughter is 11 and she sat through it without any issues. (Though she did have her hands to her cheeks towards the end.) It is a breathtaking film that'll have you feeling like you ran 3 miles. Uphill.


Have you seen A Quiet Place yet? Would you survive being silent? My family would not. We're loud.
