Spiffing Up Your Car for the Holidays

While some people like to spread holiday cheer by hanging lights and decorations at home and others head out in costume to celebrate, some car loving revelers show holiday spirit by dressing up their rides! From making your car part of an Easter egg hunt to donning lucky clovers, our do it yourself, car decorating tips will surely get you noticed for the holidays.

Fun Holidays to Make Your Car Festive

1. Valentine’s Day. Dress up your car with love and head to the streets to deliver Cupid’s messages.

What you’ll need:

  • Red heart and Cupid vinyl vehicle decals
  • Fluffy angel wings
  • An arrow and red glitter
  • Boxes of candy hearts

Tie your fluffy angel wings, glue on a red glittery arrow and voila- cupid’s signature. Have fun decorating the car with heart and cupid decals. Now, get ready to drive around town to spread the message of love.

2. Saint Patrick’s Day. Nothing says “Happy Saint Patrick’s Day” better than a leprechaun riding shotgun. Make it fun by attaching your leprechaun to the face of the car (just be sure your view is completely unobstructed) Everybody is looking for treasure at the end of the rainbow on this lucky day – get ready to greet friends around town with fun gifts from your pot of gold!

What you’ll need:

  • Fill a pot with goodies to hand out while driving around town or through a parade.
    • Novelty jewelry with shamrocks like necklaces, rings and silicone bracelets.
    • Shiny green shamrock and “gold coin” candies
    • Shamrock magnets
  • For your car
    • shamrock garland
    • green glitter leprechaun hat
    • Irish flags
    • car safe tape (check with your vehicle manufacturer)

Pick a prominent, yet visible spot, perhaps even the roof of the car to feature the leprechaun hat. People will see you coming for a mile if you display your Irish flags and shamrock garland along the front grill.

3. Easter. Ready for an adventure? How about an Easter egg hunt theme right on your car!

What you’ll need:

  • Big fluffy bunny ears
  • plastic spring flowers
  • plastic Easter eggs that open
  • goodies to fill Easter eggs such as chocolate bunnies and duckies, jelly beans, marshmallow chicks and bunnies
  • Clear fishing line

Affix bunny ears to either side of your front windows and you’ll be hopping around town in no time! After you’ve filled your eggs with treats, tie eggs to fishing line and tie on door handles, mirrors and from the windows. Let friends “hunt” for eggs when you pass through town.

Remember, go crazy when decorating your car, but be sure to stay safe.

  • Keep windows clear and free from stickers
  • Be sure all mirrors are adjusted to account for any decorations that could change your view.
  • Avoid placing anything too high to the front or back end of your car so that you always maintain visibility around other drivers and pedestrians.

Vtech Goes Green for St Patty’s Day Review & Giveaway

Are you ready for St Patrick’s Day? I know I am. Sunday, March 17th is Saint Patrick’s Day and I will be hoping to go green, and if not for my clothing then at least my office line will be green. As you can see below, I have already set up my VTech CS6519-14 Vtech Cordless Phone in my office atop my desk.

Vtech Goes Green St Patty Day

I know that this VTech cordless phone would make the perfect gift to a person who loves green or the perfect addition to any room that has a green theme. This green and black VTech cordless phone works great for me because it’s part of the VTech cordless phone lines where you can add a handset to this without having to have the second phone plugged into the phone jack. This setup is perfect for me because I run Magic Jack, that means this main phone is hooked directly to the USB in my computer, so to add extra lines in my home would require a computer for hook up whereas with this line of cordless phones, there is no extra outlet required. Simply get one of the handsets meant for this series of VTech cordless phones, plug into an electrical outlet and voila – you have more than one home phone in the house.

One of the things I really like is that I can play with the ring tone just like on my cell phone! Small things amuse me, seriously! It’s so much fun, it’s a decent sized phone and I just love how easy it is to adjust various settings with this house phone.

VTech CS6519-14 Cordless Phone – in Green Features

  • Caller ID/Call Waiting – stores up to 50 calls
  • ECO Mode power-conserving technology
  • Quiet Mode
  • Expandable up to 5 handsets
  • DECT 6.0 Digital Technology
  • 50 Name and Number Telephone Directory
  • and much more…

Enter to win your own Green VTech cordless phone (MSRP: $19.95)

Just Jen Custom Shirts For Valentine’s Day

Just Jen Valentine Custom ShirtI recently received a custom shirt from Just Jen and the design I chose was for Valentine’s Day. I was so excited to receive this shirt because it’s just too cute. As I work towards losing more weight I know I will need clothes that fit me and Just Jen has a huge selection of Valentine’s t-shirts to choose from.

Although the size I chose was not the correct size for me at this time, I have already lost 10lbs and 10″ so that means I will have a new hot t-shirt to go out in after I lost a bit more weight!

Just Jen offers a variety of custom t-shirts, some of my favorites were for St Patrick’s Day that is coming up in March. I love dressing up in all green on that day to celebrate the Irish in me. I am in love with Just Jen’s custom hoodies, it’s nice in the winter to simply slip on a nice pair of comfy pants with a hoodie to snuggle up on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa. I personally haven’t ever had a custom designed hoodie and would love one.

Overall I am very satisfied with the quality, design choices and shirt styles available at Just Jen’s. My daughter saw my shirt and wanted one of her own, so I peeked at the website to find that Just Jen’s offers custom girls t-shirts as well, how neat is that? I think that Baby K would look just adorable in a shirt that says “I’m My Mommy’s Little Man” or something, just plain cute! So while you are out looking for custom t-shirts remember Just Jen has a huge selection to choose from!

Disclosure: I received this product for free as  way to help me provide my own personal, 100% honest opinion about Just Jen’s products. For more information on sponsored posts please visit my Disclosure Policy.
