Favorite Sweater/Leopard Fashion - I Might Have An Obsession

 Hi Foxy Friends. It's been a hot minute since I did a fashion post. But since quarantine started I've been on this leopard kick that has not stopped. I'm not kidding, I've bought 4 pairs of leopard print shoes...I know where am I wearing shoes to? Anyway, the leopard doesn't stop there, I've bought so many leopard sweaters...I live in Southern California, in case you didn't know, sweater weather here is about 2.5 seconds. Okay so let's get started, so you can also get these fun and cozy, soft goodies!

First up is the latest thing to join my collection of ever growing sweaters. Mr. keeps asking me where I am going to wear these things...I keep saying, around the house? It is one of the softest things EVER. My friend happened to be over when I got it in the mail, and she immediately went online and got one for herself. Of everything on the list get this!

How gorgeous is this sweater? It's the perfect length and the softest thing I've ever felt.

The pockets are so comfy, fits my phone perfectly.

The jeans I'm wearing are so stretchy and comfy. I've linked the same brand but different pair, as I can't find the same exact pair that I have on.

The second sweater is one that I bought sometime last year and it's great too. A friend also bought this and we try not to wear it at the same time. Not as soft as the one above, but it immediately ups a pair of jeans and shoes. I usually wear, these slip ons, but I was losing light and needed to take quick pictures. I love those shoes so much I wore out my first pair and am on my second pair! Go get yourself a pair too!

The third sweater, I'm not really sure where I saw it, but I saw it and knew I had to have it. It's great color blocking. So many times I see sweaters and the color that is closest to the face is some sort of orange color, yellow or some color that looks awful next to my face. So when I saw this I had to have it. Unfortunately I can't find the same colors, but this is the sweater I bought from this vendor. This sweater is soft and something that I don't currently have in my closet, color block sweater that is. Surprising I know.

The last sweater is actually a dress. I bought this originally to wear for our family photos, but decided to go in another direction, but kept the dress because it was under $20 and how could I not keep it? It comes in 9 colors, I might have bought 4 colors for the family pictures, but ultimately decided to keep just this Mauve color one.

I got a medium, but probably could have gone to a small, although I would have lost a little length, and I feel this is already at my shortest I would want to go.

This next sweater is one that I constantly grab as my "I'm cold and need to get warm" sweater. I know two other friends that have this same sweater and we're all always wearing it. It also comes in different patterns, like this plaid on the top instead (sort of want to get this one too), and the black and leopard one.

Told you I was obsessed with leopard!

Honorable mention. I actually bought this sweater, but I have claustrophobic issues and I had to return it, but not before wearing it around the house for about 5 minutes, before I had to tear it off. I'm so sad, because it's the cutest and so soft! Another friend, the same friend who bought the above sweater, bought it and hers shrunk in length when she accidentally dried it, so don't dry it if you don't want to loose length.

Oh yeah, forgot about this one too, it's super lightweight and perfect for lounging around the house.

And it had pockets...need I say more? Hey there are those slip ons I was talking about.

This leopard shirt was a dud...don't get it, it's super boxy and wasn't very flattering. I just got it and still need to return it, luckily Amazon has a great return policy and it's super easy.

When I tell you I'm on a leopard kick, I'm not kidding, I also bought these heels, where I'm going to wear them, I have no idea! I just love that they are a subtle hint of leopard and for $30, yes please! How could I turn that down?

I bought these slip on shoes too, full confession I bought them freakin' twice! Once online and then a few months later I was in the store and bought them again.I had a feeling that I already had them, but because I hadn't worn them, I didn't really remember, and it was such a good deal, that I had to buy them. Don't worry, my mom ended up buying them off of me, so I only have one pair. They are so comfy that I wear them with no socks and no blisters while out doing errands. Run don't walk to go get yourself a pair. In case you wanted to know, this is the other pair I bought, it has a cute zipper detail that is good cute to pass up. It's the pair that I kept.

Also got these cute wedges on the recommendation of Kellyann ...this is just getting embarrassing now...

Okay one more pair, then I promise these are all of the shoes I bought during quarantine...wait that's a lie. Darn. I can't find the link to the other pair...but know I bought a pair of leopard sandals. I did also buy these running/workout shoes. They're comfy and I might have bought two pairs. One to wear while working out outside, and one for the house. Everyone does that right?

We'll not get into all of the workout/lounge wear that I've bought. But some of it is in this post

If you're still with me...I know it was a long one with lots of words, here is a close up of my make up.

All make up is from my girl Becky, you can find her on FB or IG

Colors I used: 

Eyes: Plum Berry, Smoke Shimmer, Ballet Slipper, Shell Glitter

Blush: Plum Berry

Eye brows: Rustic Brown 

Lips: Dusty Rose 

Not sure why my outfit posts and turning out blurry, they don't look like that when I load them, but are coming out blurry in the post...need to figure that out.

Small Business Friday Favorites

Hi Foxy Friends! I thought that Holiday shopping is just around the corner and I thought I would share some of my favorite small, Mama run, shops that I support, and that I hope you will find something you like and will support too! In no particular order, because I love them all equally.

Shop #1

Re-Wine Bottle Works is a two sister, who are good friends of mine, that takes those bottle of wines you use, cuts off the top and makes them into candles. I had a 100 year anniversary wine bottle from my college from 10 years ago. I knew that one day I would find something to do with it. She's currently making it into a candle now, and she has so many scents to choose from! Here is her Etsy and here is her FB page.


My friend, Jackie and her husband, run a jewelry company called BEXO. She has the cutest stuff and is constantly making new stuff. I know for a fact that her and her husband make every piece of jewelry that they sell. She's been featured in OC fashion week and so much more. I have several of her pieces and they never tarnish, even just sitting in a drawer, like mine do. I am obsessed with these earrings, wear them a couple of times a week. She does a great job keeping up with IG, so go check her out and give her a follow!

This is the necklace I want next. They were sold out of the one I wanted, she has this necklace with a little charm hanging from it, I'm waiting for it to come back in stock so I can snag it up!


My friend from Junior High recently started selling Color Street, and I'm obsessed. I had another friend that sold it a couple of years ago, but she stopped doing it, so I didn't have a "dealer", but then my friend, Joanne, started selling it and Color Street has really stepped up their game! They now have overlays and so many more fun designs. Constantly coming out with new stuff. Go join Joanne's Facebook group  she is constantly doing fun giveaways and games for you to participate in. She has a montly drawing for just doing a nailfie in her group and for it being your birthday month. 

Look how cute these holiday nails are?

Clearly I need to step up my nailfie game.


Last but certainly not least are my bloggy besties. They've delved into the world of fashion and are taking it by storm! They have a shop in both Canada, Belong Lifestyle and Belong Lifestyle USA. They have some very unique pieces that I love! Like this t-shirt. I own this one and constantly get compliments when I wear it.

Belong Lifestyle USA is just opening up this past week or so, so give her some time to get the products on the website.

Go follow their FB for great ideas on how to style your clothing.

Belong Lifestyle Canada

Belong Lifestyle USA

I just love the message these ladies are trying to get out here. Love the skin that you're in and be you. Here is a little snippet from their website:

Be seen: We continually curate a size inclusive collection of apparel pieces to compliment your body and style today.

Be heard: Participate in our community book club, consignment collection, events and email insiders list. Your voice matters.

Be you: At Belong Lifestyle, we believe that every woman should feel comfortable, confident, current and creative in her own skin.

They also have some consignment, which is also so fun! 


My friend, Becky, sells Senegence. Which some of you may know as Lipsense. Join her facebook group and she gives you a bunch of tips and tricks and also has some good sales and deals. So much so, you just want to snag up all of it, which in my case I do! I haven't delved into their skin care line yet, but all in due time. Trying to use up what I have, then I might make the switch. I pretty much just wear their eyeshadow and lipsense only. It has the staying power and I just love it. If you know what you want, you can just order from her site.

My looks is:

Eyes: Bella Cream, Americano, French Roast, Bella Shimmer

Lips: Dusty Rose (my new favorite everyday color)

Cheeks: Plum Berry 

Also, incase you wanted to know the other stuff I'm wearing:

Concealer for blemishes (color is Caramel)
Concealer for Brightening (color is Biscuit)
Eyelashes (magnetic!)
Eyeliner (color: Perversion)

Notice the small bit of earring you can see? It's from BEXO!


See the sweater in the above picture? It is from a small boutique local to me called Sweetly Striped. She does a live on her FB page every Tuesday and Thursday with all of her new products. She gives first dibs to her FB group before putting it on her website for everyone else. I'm obsessed with the grey jacket...but I need another jacket like a hole in my head. Who are we kidding, I'll probably break down and buy it is a link to the exact sweater I am wearing.

I love all of these Mama's and their shops, so go take a look at their products and support a Mama and her growing business. 

Happy Friday! Taking next week off which I'm so excited about!

Top 5 Favorite Gifts I've Bought For My Kids

Hi Foxy Friends! Today I'm sharing some fun things I've bought for the kids recently. Some will be Christmas Gifts and others

Favorite #1

Did you know that Target has sock Advent Calendars? Yep, your kids or yourself can open a different pair of socks each day. Not sure about your kids, but my kids LOVE socks, so this is going to blow their mind when they open them! 

I bought this one for Baby Fox

And this one for Mini Fox

Favorite #2

We're getting this for my son for his birthday (which is on Christmas Day). This is on the cheaper side and has pretty good reviews, of course you can always go more expensive, but I figure since they are using it for a go-cart, it doesn't need to be top of the line? At least that is my reasoning. Oh and it comes in 31 different styles and colors!

But wait, it gets better, if you're a little worried about them balancing and hurting themselves. You can convert the Hoverboard into a go-cart! What little kid doesn't want a go-cart?! It comes in 5 colors too!

Favorite #3

My daughter is OBSESSED with making her dolls both her 18" and barbie type dolls clothes. She typically uses tape to make her dresses and shirts. I figured that it's time for her to get her first easy to use sewing machine. At under $40 and pretty good reviews she is going to LOVE this!

Favorite #4

OH my gosh, did anyone else knew these LOL Mini Brands existed?!  Mini Fox is OBSESSED with finding things that we have that are miniature for her dolls/Barbie dolls. When I found out these were a thing, I went and bought 6 of them for stocking stuffers. Although I'm fairly certain not all 6 will fit in her stocking. She is going to FLIP when she sees that her Barbie can use the same ketchup that she uses. I guess there are 70 different mini brands that you can find within them. So I got her 30, hopefully we don't get too many repeats!
So of course I then had to go buy her this to go with her mini brands stuff. 

Favorite #5

Baby Fox is super into coding and science and this combines the two things...hey that's a win! It has great reviews and seems like everyone really likes it.
