NinjaInTheCity Life in Photos

Yup! I may not celebrate it, but damn I bake like a boss! Cully is way to excited about T-Rex Pajamas!!!! #PeachesandPetals if you ask me white is not a fall color. Most of the items in the November box can be purchased at your local dollar store or Dollar Tree. One would think the box would have a fall theme, instead it looks like someone went nuts in the dollar store and grabbed whatever was in their sight line because it was a dollar! #peachesandpetals November 2015 box first look. Haha jokes on them, they can't stop me Ha! I still got a box! #peachesandpetals you can't stop this girl!!! The Incredible Potato Hulk is coming to a cubical in US Bank Plaza near you!'
