Sneak Peek: Miss Em’s Holiday Open House Nov. 5

Man, oh man! My favorite online accessory/gift item site, missems.com, is having their annual Holiday Open House Sunday Nov. 5 11am-5pm at the Anderson Senior Center in Anderson Township!

Not only is this an awesome opportunity to see all the HUNDREDS of pieces you can typically only find online — including bracelets, necklaces, earrings, purses, scarves, baby clothes, children’s gifts, holiday decor, and more — but there will also be other fabulous vendors there, too! She has LuLaRoe, Mary Kay, Usborne Books, Scentsy, Lipsense, and Thirty One currently scheduled to be there, and there could be more!


All of the jewelry is $25 or less, so it’s all VERY affordable. But get there early for the best selection. Most of the pieces she carries, she only has one of, so if you get there early, you’ll get the pick of the litter! 🙂

It’s for a good cause too! Bring a new, unused children’s toy worth $10 or more to donate to Children’s Hospital and receive 10% off your entire order from Miss Em’s. This is new! They haven’t done this in years past when I’ve come before, so that’s exciting! Even though the maximum discount you can get is 10% off (so you don’t get multiple discounts for bringing multiple toys) although I’m sure they’d LOVE It if you brought in more than one toy! Hey, it’s a great opportunity to offload the stuff your kiddos aren’t using to make room for all the goodies Santa will be bringing!

Here’s an event recap blog I did after going to one of Miss Em’s Holiday Open House events so you can see some examples of things I found. I included a few pics below of happy Miss Em’s customers wearing their fab finds, and also a sneak peek of some items on her site I’m excited to see in person at this year’s event!

Boy Scout Fundraiser Dec. 3!

Every year, Miss Em’s hosts a fun shopping event that benefits the Boy Scouts of America (BSA)! This year’s event is coming up Saturday Dec. 3, 11am-3pm at 5767 Wolfpen-Pleasant Hill Rd. This is the Milford Trinity United Methodist Church and chartered home of Troop 468. Proceeds from this annual fundraiser will help offset cost of monthly campouts, events, and other misc. expenses such as equipment, propane, troop trailer and cooking supplies. The Scouts and their families appreciate this support and hope to see you on Dec. 3! Click here for more event details!

I chatted with the Troop Leader of Troop 468 (based at Trinity United Methodist Church in Milford OH) to learn more about BSA and how much each troop helps their local communities. Here’s what the Troop Leader had to say about his group: The Boy led Troop is over 50 years old and current has 52 boys on charter with the Boy Scouts of America. The scouts range in ages 10 through 18, as they progress through the ranks in hope of reaching Eagle Scout, the highest scouting rank. We are a service driven troop that participates in many events to help local organizations and its people. Some of which include the following:

  • Milford Miami Ministries – Food Collection and 5K fundraiser support
  • Tender Mercies
  • Senior Saturday (Miami Township) breakfast event
  • Built 22 tables for kids affected by Downs Syndrome
  • Honor Flight
  • Provided 75 summer lunches for Milford Students
  • New Life Furniture drive participation
  • Giving Tree for Holidays
  • Flag Retirements
  • Miami Township Fire Tower
  • Finley Ray Park clean up
  • Trinity United Methodist Clean up Fall and Spring

Check out the event flyer below for more details (or click here), along with pics of fun we’ve had in the past supporting the Boy Scouts! Miss Em’s will have amazing pieces for everyone to choose from — ALL jewelry will be $20 or less! And don’t forget about all the awesome baby and kids items Miss Em’s now carries!

Miss Em’s Baby Items You’ll Go Ga-Ga For!

I went to Miss Em’s Holiday Open House last weekend, and saw SO many cute things! With me being 9 months preggo, I especially loved that she added baby items to her site this year! I got a few things, like a really cute little handprint and footprint set that I can create with our new little one and hang in her new room once she arrives! Yay! Baby’s first craft project is already planned! haha!

I also bought a really cute “Tickle Monster” book (comes with a furry “monster” glove with holes for fingers to do some good tickling!) for my older daughter, which she’s going to just LOVE.

I saw a bunch of other cute things I now wish I had just bought, because I now either want them for one of my girls or I’ve thought of who they’d make the perfect gift for! So, I’m about to go check out her new  “Baby” page on her site to order more!

To check out the pics below I snapped at her last event to see some of my favorite items I found!  If you’re looking for holiday gifts, need a gift for a baby shower coming up, or just want some fun new items for your little one, make sure you check out her website for more items, or stop by the Lawrenceburg Holiday Market November 20th – 22nd to get some wonderful gifts!img_7622img_7623img_7624img_7625img_7626img_7627

Cate Alston with Cupcakes 4 Cancer

For the past few weeks, I’ve been telling you about the Miss Em’s Holiday Bazaar. It was this past Saturday and Sunday…  WOW! What a great weekend! Both days of the event were packed with lots of shoppers getting ready for the holidays (despite it being 70-75 degrees out! haha!) Below are some pics of some of my favorite things I found — and maaaaaaybe might have bought for myself or as gifts!

Not only was the event a huge success for Miss Em’s and all the vendors involved, but the event raised $408 for Cupcakes 4 Cancer – a business created by Cate Alston who bakes cupcakes with her mom. They sell cupcakes to raise money to make backpacks filled with fun items for kids who are in the hospital with cancer. A few local news stations came to the event to cover this partnership with them this year, which was exciting! Click here to read one of the station’s stories about it!

What a successful event!

Seven Savvy Look for Less Pieces from Miss Em’s

I told you last week about how I hosted a Virtual Party with Miss Em’s and now that all of my items have arrived, I’m soooo happy! Not only because I love all the pieces I bought (and it helped donate funds to my friend’s cause) but I also saved a TON off of the designer look-alikes.

I wanted to be prepared with an example of how much I was saving when my Miss Em’s package arrived, so the hubs wouldn’t give me a hard time and I was SHOCKED to see how much I actually was saving! Just to give you an idea of how affordable (yet on-trend) her items are,  below are seven side-by-side comparisons of my favorite pieces and then the designer pieces that look super similar but are MUCH more expensive. Hey, even the husband was impressed, so I know I did well! haha!

You can buy online, host a Virtual Party like I did, or shop in person this weekend at her Holiday Bazaar Nov. 5 & 6. Click here for more info!

Preview of Miss Em’s Holiday Bazaar Nov. 5-6!

I know the big Miss Em’s Holiday Bazaar is coming up on Nov. 5-6 but I had to do some pre-shopping to show you the kinds of things she’d have at the event (hey, it counts as “work” because I’m writing about it now right?) 🙂

Miss Em’s is seriously my favorite place to go for all my inexpensive accessories/costume jewelry, plus she just started selling cute baby items which have been SO perfect for gift giving!

There will be a TON more than just jewelry… there will also be Ohio State decor, jewelry, scarves, purses, children’s gifts, holiday decor and more.  They always have an awesome raffle for all the attendees to enter, too!

The pics in the first collage below are of some of the items I recently got at Miss Em’s (click here to see bigger pics) and how I’ve styled them. The second collage is of items Emily with Miss Em’s assured me she’ll definitely have at the event (she only carries a few of each, so some of the styles I got are already gone!) to give you an idea of what she’ll have there…. not to mention all the other awesome vendors she’ll have! Additional vendors include:

  • Pampered Chef
  • LuLaRoe
  • Scenty
  • Thirty One Gifts
  • Rodan + Fields
  • WildTree

Five (Well, Technically 15) Fab Look for Less Ideas!

Last night, I hosted a virtual party with Miss Em’s  and it was AWESOME! I decided to make it a fundraiser for my friend Lindsay who’s trying to generate enough funds to do IVF and start a family (Miss Em’s will donate 15% of your sales to a charity!). So, a ton of my friends and Lindsay’s friends joined in to shop for a cause! It was really fun AND easy! 🙂

In a few days, I’ll do a follow up blog with a video that I took last night, to show you how the party worked and also recap how much we raised for Lindsay! But seeing so many of my friends buy different items at the party last night, and knowing their personal style/how they would style them, inspired me to put together this post!

My friend Lindsay is very sporty… a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal. My friend Candy is very classic and corporate… a suit or LBD everyday kind of gal. And then my friend Jessica is in between as a teacher… a business casual kind of gal. So I picked out five Miss Em’s pieces and styled them how each of my three friends would wear them to give you an idea of the versatility!

  1. The Gold Bar Cluster Necklace and Earring Set ($20) — I added the Natural Fabric & Leatherette Bracelet ($14) for the “teacher” look

2. Neon Multi-Color Necklace & Earring Set ($20)

3. Coral Seed Bead Necklace & Earring Set ($22) — I added the Natural Fabric & Leatherette Bracelet ($14) for the “teacher” look

4. Long Matte Necklace & Earring Set ($18) — I added the “Be Brave” Cuff Bracelet ($13) to the “teacher” look

5. Silver Flower Necklace & Earring Set ($22)
