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:

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.

Kids Behind The Blog: Thanksgiving Edition

 Hi Foxy Friends! I saw my friend Danielle and Dara were hosting the Kids Behind the Blog series and had to join in on the fun! So let get started.

Baby Fox

Do you celebrate Thanksgiving? Or a different fall holiday? Thanksgiving

What is your favorite Thanksgiving (or fall holiday) tradition? When we go to see our cousins (but not this year due to COVID)

Best food to eat? Cranberry sauce and the turkey and the yams with marshmallows on top and corn on the cob.

Do you watch football? No, it would be cool, but no.

Apple pie or pumpkin pie? Or something else? Pumpkin pie definitely!

Mini Fox

Do you celebrate Thanksgiving? Or a different fall holiday?
We celebrate Thanksgiving.

What is your favorite Thanksgiving (or fall holiday) tradition? Going to our cousins house (but not this year *insert sad face*) 

Best food to eat? I think, the Turkey and the mashed potatoes and the corn...on the cob, with butter (funny we're never had that before for Thanksgiving).

Do you watch football? No, not really.

Apple pie or pumpkin pie? Or something else? Tough decision, oh wait, not a tough decision, totally pumpkin pie!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Although this year will be a bit different, we're still going to have a great day and be Thankful for everything that we have and each other.

How To Decorate Your Thanksgiving Table

Hi Foxy Friends! I was talking to my mom today and she said hey, remember when we did that video on how to decorate your Thanksgiving table? I can't find it on our Youtube Channel (yep I have a YouTube channel with my mom, separate from my Youtube Channel). I thought, well I remember editing it, and low and behold, I had a completely edited and ready to upload video all set to go. I figure, well good thing she noticed now, we can upload this now, and it's still relevant.  So here is how you use what you have in your house to decorate your thanksgiving table!

We used things that she had around from previous Thanksgivings/ Fall decorations. Decorating your table does not mean you have to go out and spend a ton of money. I find that I like to add one piece here and there, and then over the years you get a different looking table, and only spending a minimal amount of money. Here is the video that we put together on the steps to create your own Thanksgiving table. Make it interesting, and put little things around the table for people to look at, like those turkey salt and pepper shakers or the scarecrow. Doesn't have to be uniform, the more unique the better!


Here is a close up of the table setting

And the table put together

Added a pumpkin for decorations, not that we're going to eat it :)

Gobble Gobble!
