Gift Guide | Build a Spa Basket

November 29, 2018

It's the HOLIDAY SEASON, y'all! As you set up your tree and kick off all things Christmas, I'm getting the blog ready for you with PLENTY of gift guides and ideas. If you're feeling stumped and need ideas for the special ladies on your list, The Fashionable Fox has got your back.

The first gift guide I put together this year is a fun one that I have personally created once before for my sister-in-law and it was A. HIT. This guide is all about building a spa basket! The phrase "treat yo self" is more important than ever, so why not treat someone on your list to the gift of an at-home spa day?

The Monday Motivator | Take Care of Yourself

Real question: why aren't we taking care of ourselves?  I'm not talking about getting a pedicure, scheduling a dentist appointment, joining a gym kind of taking care of ourselves. But WHY do we make it feel so taboo to take care of our mental health?

Sometimes we can't always tell when our mental health is suffering. We get too busy to recognize it, and on the brink of burnout, reality kicks in with the realization that mentally, we are hurting. 

Fall Stylebook | Keeping Comfortable on Thanksgiving

November 20, 2018

It's almost THANKSGIVING and I'm over here all giddy doing my fat pants happy dance!

Thanksgiving is the BEST in my house. We kick off the day in our pajamas, watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and preparing things for dinner. We eventually trade in our pajamas for sweatpants and cozy sweaters and spend time together on the couch as a family before we dig in to all the goods my mom made for our meal. I love everything about this day because I'm never obligated to be anywhere. I don't have to put on any makeup and my outfit is allowed to be as casual as I want.

The Monday Motivator | Start Small with Thanksgiving

Start small with thanksgiving.

I know what you're thinking.

So does she mean I should start with the stuffing or the mashed potatoes first?

But I'm not talking about the Thanksgiving dinner. I'm talking about the act of giving thanks.

I obviously wanted to write this week's Monday Motivator about being thankful. Last year, I wrote a post about how to be thankful and grateful and mean it. So this year, I wanted my advice to be a little different.

Bath & Beauty Report | November

November 15, 2018

After a wacky and wild few days last week, I am so happy to be sitting down with you back on the blog today. I promised a recent Target haul post, but due to some technical difficulties, that post is still in the draft phases- but it will be posted ASAP!

For this week's post, I put together another Bath and Beauty Report with some products I've picked up recently. You already know how much I love the color pink, and the products I'm featuring are all shades of pink that are appropriate for fall. The blush and hot pinks of spring/summer turn into nude and mauve pinks come fall/winter and I'm absolutely LOVING it.

Last week, I had an unpleasant experience at the post office. Not because the line was too long, which you would typically expect at the post office, but because of a rude interaction that hurt my heart.

I won't get into all of the details, but I will elaborate a bit to help support today's Monday Motivator advice. I was behind an older man in line who became offended when the sales clerk asked to see his ID because he was paying with a check. He was rude to the sales clerk, telling her he'd been coming there for over 40 years, and said he was a "doctor" and "would never come back here again."

My New Favorite Pajamas

November 2, 2018

Oops, I blinked and October is over.

As much as I loooove  October, I loooove  November equally as much because 1. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and 2. the fall weather begins to get chillier and cozier. 

As you start to curl up in soft blankets next to the fire, you're going to need the perfect pajamas to complement that oh-so-cozy feeling. I was recently in the market for new pajama pants because mine are super old, but mostly because they are packed away in the attic and I was too lazy to get them down; the perfect reason to find a new pair!
