$10 Target Haul: August Edition

Hello Foxy Friends! Normally I would show you all the things that I bought at Target for $10, but this time the ladies and I decided that it would be fun to, instead of spending $10, combine our money and do a Target Give A Way! How fun is that?

Truth be told, the last time I went into Target, I was buying all the school supplies for Baby Fox. I did pass by the dollar section to try and peruse, but Mr. was with me and starts to get impatient if we stray too far from why we are there. The kids usually don't care, I told him he was worse then the kids. He just laughed at me and agreed.



I did find some things I would have maybe considered had I been doing the $10 challenge. These finger crayons, how fun are these? Stick on fingers and now you can draw...I think the kids would love this.




A taco gel for the windows, yes please! Although at $3 this was sort of expensive for this, I probably wouldn't have gotten it, but it's super cute.



I love buying the kids matching plates, we have some for every holiday, and quite frankly the kids like having matching things as well. These plates were so dang cute, perfect for Summer.



I found these honeycombs with tassels, which was super cool, just wished it came in colors for Mini Fox's birthday party.



I did, however, find these honeycombs that are somewhat close to the Frozen theme color, so I had to buy them for the party. I have no idea how I am going to decorate for the party, but I'll eventually get there. I hope!



Okay now what you've all really been waiting for, that giveaway. Enter below for your chance to win!

Friday Favorites #130 + Year of Color, Neon

Happy Friday Foxy Friends. I have a dentist appointment today wish me luck. Although usually I got unscathed, I have to get my invisalign retainers replaced, which means I have to take molds, which means I'll be gagging at some point today, ugh! I wonder if I have my old molds. I think they gave them to me last time. Those should work right?  Anyway, off topic, let's get to my Friday Favorites.

Thursday: Sephora Repurchases

Here is my Sephora repurchase haul. Hope you enjoy watching the things I buy on repeat! What is something you keep buying over and over?




Last weekend we headed up to San Luis Obispo to meet up with some friends that live in the Bay area. We had such a blast with them and their family. We both got there on Thursday evening and had pizza and then let the kids play around a bit. Then at 10pm, I decided we should make the breakfast casserole ahead of time so we wouldn't have to make it in the morning, good decision because the oven was wonky and it took forever to cook! This is uncooked ready to go in the morning.


Saturday we didn't really have any plans and the lady we rented the house from gave us a bunch of free wine tasting coupons, who are we to not do that?! So off we went, with kids wine tasting. The lady said they were all family friendly, and they really were, had games and toys for the kids.




Then after a few places we went to lunch and decided, hey the Elephant seals are relatively close by, lets do that! So off we went, hoping the kids would take a short nap, which 2 of the 4 did...





On our way back we saw a sign that said honey tasting, what?! Honey tasting have to try that out. The kids had to go with us to 3 wineries, so we took them honey tasting. Turns out this place called Jack Creek Farms, has a farm...with so much stuff for the kids to do, they had a blast! Lots of roaming kitties.


Some chickens


A maze for the kids to run through.


Baby Goats


And of course honey tasting, they also had olive oil and vinegar, and really they said anything in the store, they could give you a sample of. The owners were SO nice.


After we got back the kids rode their bikes around.


The next morning the kids played some games. Have you heard of Left Center Right? Super easy and fun game that the kids can play.



Then we headed to the BEACH! The kids had an absolute blast!


Water was freezing in case you wanted to know.



They dug giant holes.


Then I taught them the art of tunnel digging, they were all touching hands down there and giggling up a storm.


When we got back we did RC cars, which the kids loved as well.



And we touched the frogs.


It was a fantastic weekend with friends and we hope that this turns into a yearly thing!


Last night Mini Fox went to her first sleep over at my parents. I think she had a blast? As of 9:30pm Thursday night (when I am typing this up), they haven't called yet to come pick her up. Meanwhile, we thought we would spoil Baby Fox a little, as usually it is him sleeping over leaving Mini behind. So we gave him his choice for dinner, he picked Mexican food.


Can we first talk about how old Baby Fox looks? Like when did I get a 9 year old? Wahhh...okay back on topic, and then we went and got some Thrifty ice cream in the nicest Rite Aid EVER!


Yep that's right, it was buy one get one free...so of course we bought some to take home.


I finally remembered, I'm joining DesireeStefanieJustine and Whitney for their link up called A Year Of Color. Each month they want us to showcase the color of the month, however you want to represent that. This month is neon. 


 I just got these shoes from Amazon Prime Day, my new favorite workout shoeThese use to be my favorite, and the last three running shoes I picked them, but the reviews from them said that they ran narrow and I have a wider foot, so I didn't want to risk the chance...so I tried a new one and they are so light and airy.


For whatever reason, all of my workout shoes are always bright colors, my last ones were neon pink, the ones before that were neon green and before that neon blue. I usually go for comfort and not color.

Full disclosure: those pink weights are WAY too heavy for me, the ones I use are black...that wasn't neon..these pink ones were...and matched my shoes, hehe.





As always a list of my blog favorites from around blogland for the Friday Loves with The Blended Blog

I clicked on Cheryl's blog from Sarah from Tucker Up fashion link up, and boy am I glad that I did. Her new found love of graphic tees has me all smiling. Especially since she found it at a drug store AND she is talking my love language. Naps all day everyday! She's just the cutest, go check her out and say hi!

Sephora Repurchase Haul

Hello Foxy Friends! Today I'm sharing a Sephora Haul I did a while back, where did the time go? Anyway, I'm ran out of a bunch of my make up staples, and thought I would share what some of my go to purchases are.



I love getting freebies, but does anyone else have the issue of remembering to use them? I need to get a better system, so I can actually remember to use this stuff! This is one of the reasons why I don't do a monthly subscription box for make up, I just don't have the room to store it any more! Although Boxycharm is the one that I'm eyeing on getting next. My friend just sent a picture of what she got in her box this month, holy cow, I wanted everything and for $20 it's a pretty dang good deal!

Here is a list of things I got.

Free Samples I received:

Things I bought:

That eyeliner pencil awesome? I have an issue with oily eyes, so I have to use waterproof, I've used the Marc Jacobs one as well (freebie I remembered to use, actually I couldn't find my Urban Decay one, and I saw that one in the drawer), and like it, I need to give it another try.

I've used the Duo Finish Powder a couple of times, but isn't my go to, I just really like the Pro Finish, gives me a little more coverage. I do however use this when I do a full foundation look.



What is one of your make up staples that you keep buying over and over again?

4 Must Have Summer to Fall Transition Pieces

Happy Wednesday Foxy Friends! I thought I would share some Summer to Fall Transition outfits.

I think adding a light kimono is such a great way to add a light layer when it's not quite cool enough to wear a sweater, but gives you something else on your arms.


1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5
 

Another great way to add another layer are light weight blazer (similar to one below).



These are also great choices. I mean how cute are those bell sleeves in 1 and 2?



1 / 2 / 3/ 4


I think a great way to transition to fall is colorful pants. I mean who doesn't love a good red jean? Or aqua or plum?




1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

Last one is a great light weight sweater. I have this one in two different colors (mine is currently sold out, but there are three other colors, but in general I think longer light weight sweaters is going to be a great Summer to Fall Transition piece.
 


1 / 2 / 3 / 4/ 5
