Spring is Here...It's Time For Some Spring Fashion!

Spring time is officially here...almost, and that means it's time for some Spring fashion!  Spring fashion can be anything between capri jeans, thinner t-shirts and tops to cold shoulder tops.  When I think of Spring fashion, I think of more t-shirts (I especially love the slogan ones), open toe sandals and lighter feeling clothing.  Of course, you still will need those long sleeve blouses some days, but warmer weather will soon be on it's way.

And, as always, I have three more wonderful pieces from Femme Luxe Finery.  If you are new to my site, Femme Luxe Finery is a site that has very affordable fashion that is in style, fun, sexy and casual.  They have just about anything you are looking for and I just can't get enough of this company!  They also have on-going sales on their site, from free shipping to 75% go visit them at  They have a US site as well as a UK site.  If you visit the link I just gave, keep in mind, the sizes are UK and they usually run smaller.  They do have a sizing chart for you to go by and it's pretty accurate.

Alright, now let's get down to business.  This first top is, once again, is a slogan t-shirt, Champagne Is Always The Answer. I'll mention it again... these t-shirts are so stretchy, so soft and comfortable.  Femme Luxe Finery has tons of slogan t-shirts you can choose from and how appropriate is this t-shirt!  They are fun, they come in both black and white and I absolutely love wearing statement tees!  You can wear it down as a regular t-shirt or...tie the front up in a knot and sport it with some sexy shorts or joggers.

Available Sizes: S/M (4/6) & M/L (8/10)
Available Colors: Black, White
Price: $7.35

The next item is a slinky bandeau.  I mainly chose this as I have several cold shoulder tops from Femme Luxe Finery that I either have to wear a strapless bra or go bra-less(that aint happening!)  I figured that the bandeau was a perfect addition to my cold shoulder tops, as it would be more comfortable than a strapless bra and could serve the purpose for any shoulder-less tops.  I will say, though, that I chose the Large, as I wanted it to fit and fit not too tight, but after receiving it, I should have went smaller, as these bandeaus DO stretch quite a bit and did not give me the support I needed.  Mind you though, if you have natural breasts and are somewhat large chested, gravity will play a roll in this bandeau.  My advice...go with a smaller size to support those babies.  Either way, the bandeau DID work underneath my tops and covered where it was supposed to.  A better representation of the bandeau is bandeau can be seen on the model.

Available Sizes: 2,4,6,8,10
Available Colors: Black, Brown
Price: $6.12

Lastly...we have the Blue Satin High Neck One Shoulder Top.  Unfortunately, this does not look quite the same on me, as it did on the gorgeous model, but it will one day.  This top is a brilliant blue satin top that is perfect for going out on that nice spring or summer day.  It can be casual, with jeans or denim or dress it up with a black leather skirt for a night out on the town.  This would be an awesome top if you have a work party or just a gathering with friends and you want to dress up a bit, but not too much.  Below, you can see how it looks on the model.  I believe the highest size for US is a size 10.  Look at the colors below.  How hot would the Red Satin top be!

Available Sizes: 2,4,6,8,10
Available Colors: Red, Pink, Blue, Black
Price: $18.39

Well folks, that's it for this section of Femme Luxe Finery, but check out those prices!  How affordable much affordable can you get?  Don't let the low prices fool you...each piece that I've received from Femme Luxe Finery has ALWAYS been top quality pieces and I've loved every single one of them I could wear.  If you are looking for trendy, fashionable, hot, sexy, cute and casual clothing, you must give Femme Luxe Finery a try.  I bet you'll be a loyal customer!

Educational Puzzles For Toddlers

You've probably seen me post about these type of puzzles before.  This puzzle is by the same brand/company, Petit Toys.  Petit Toys is a company that specializes in bringing fun and educational puzzles to kids, which will have them playing with these for hours.

brody and his alphabet puzzle

My 3 year old grand son, Brody, absolutely loves these puzzles.  They are somewhat easy for him, with the snail puzzle (shown below) a little more challenging.  They help your child learn their alphabet, as well as develop eye-hand coordination, motor skills and recognition of shapes, letters and colors.

Every time I receive one of these puzzles, he instantly wants to unbox it, unwrap it and begin playing with them immediately.  When it's time to go home, he wants to take these puzzles with him...can you blame him?  He is the type that loves to try and figure things out and these puzzles are perfect for that.

These puzzles come with a yellow storage bag to keep all your pieces together.  The alphabet puzzle contains key words on the wooden board.  Each alphabet piece has a corresponding animal on the puzzle board, to help your child not only learn what the letter is, but the animal that begins with that letter.

wooden puzzle

The alphabet pieces are wooden and are perfect size for small hands, but large enough to prevent your child from choking on them.  This puzzle is great for home, school or even for birthdays and children parties.

The snail puzzle has softer puzzle pieces.  They are smaller, so parent supervision is required.  The snail pieces are also alphabet related, but a little more challenging.  Your child has to fit the pieces of the puzzle together, going with the order of the alphabet.  Once completed, your child has a vibrant 
colored snail!

Both these puzzles comes as a set and can be found at:

Perfect Work & Weekend Attire - Femme Luxe Finery

It seems like it's been a while since I've posted a new blog post, but today...It's a brand new day!  Lately, I've been reading up, watching and trying to grasp a new thing...but I will leave that for another post.

It's almost a new month and March will be here before you know it.  February's not been too bad (I know it's winter and we HAVE to have cold weather) but I'm ready for some steady warm weather!  Here, in Southeast Missouri, you never know what the temps will be.  One day it may be in the 30's and the're looking at near 60!  I kid you not!

Whatever the weather, I'm pretty sure these four outfits are perfect for all season!  I'm super excited about this month's picks from Femme Luxe Finery, because as you know...I normally steer away from pants unless I can try them on. Not all pants fits the same and I've been so self conscious about the way pants fit in the waist.  BUT...I've decided to forgo all that and give these a try!  Oh...why am I super excited about this pick?  Because, it's the first time I've seen these pants (I've been eyeing these for quite some time) in a size I believe would fit!

So, enough rambling...Let's get to it!

These Baby Pink Cargo Pants have always been a favorite style of mine.  They just seem to look sporty, but feminine and can be worn in a way that makes them casual or dressed up.  They have the cargo style pockets on each leg as well as a cuffed ankle and elastic waist band.  These would look awesome paired up with a black or white tank top.  Dress them up with some heels or pair them down with some white sneakers.  I love the versatility of these pants...not to mention the color!  I am wearing a size 16 (UK size) which converts to a size 12 US. (psst...this black t-shirt is also from Femme Luxe Finery!)

Available Sizes: 6-16 UK (2-12 US)
Available Colors: Baby Pink, Hot Pink, Khaki Green, Black, Stone, Neon Lime, Gray & Neon Orange.
Price: $19

The next pair of pants are the Black High Waisted Side Split Trousers.  These, I chose, well...because momma needs a new pair of pants for work...a pair that LOOKS like they were made for work...not a pair of leggings that I normally wear!  These high waisted side split trousers are available in sizes 6-16 UK sizes (2-12 US) and have a side split in each leg.  I can see myself pairing this up with a cami, layered with a cardigan.  These would look extra hot paired with a lace bodysuit, in the same color, for an evening out.  Throw on some heels and you have a date-night outfit!

Available Sizes: 6-16 UK (2-12 US)
Available Colors: Black
Price: $22

The third pair of pants I chose were the Teal Belted Tapered Trousers.  These, again, were chosen because I need more work attire in my closet.  Eventually, I want to veer away from leggings as work attire.  I recently was promoted to loan officer and now, I want to look the part.  These pants will definitely have me looking the part.  These pants are not only super cute, but very stylish and I love the big belted look! (I may forgo the belt just a bit...still working on this tummy of mine!)  These pants have that elegant tapered look and would perfect with a bodysuit, layered with a work jacket.  If you're not too keen on bodysuits, you can wear a nice solid colored sleeveless top!  These WILL become a regular wear for me, once I get to where I can wear them, but in the meantime, I'm loving the look of these pants on the model!

Available Sizes: XS(6-8)-XL(14-16)UK  (XS 2/4 to XL 10/12) US
Available Colors: Teal, Black, Hot Pink, Lime, Stone & White
Price: $18

And Last...not pants, but one of my favorite tops that I recently ordered in two different colors, is the Cold Shoulder Cut Out Jersey Dress in Khaki Green!  The two previous cold shoulder cut out jersey dresses (I wear this as a long top with leggings) fit so well, that I had to have this in the Khaki Green.  I love how the whole look comes together, from the neckline and shoulder cut out to the length.  You can wear this with the matching belt it comes with or, just let it hang with a pair of leggings.  This is a very cute dress/top to wear if you are on the smaller side and you want to cinch that waist line in to create a casual look.  This top is super soft and super comfy and I wish they had this available in other colors (I would definitely dig a pretty pink!) Worn as a dress and paired up with some booties would look so cute!

There you have it folks, my four outfits for the month of February.  What will March bring?  Well, you guys will just have to stay tuned and check out my next Femme Luxe Finery's blog post next month!  I really hope you guys enjoy the many looks I post of Femme Luxe Finery's clothes.  As always, go check out
Femme Luxe Finery's website to see what dressy, casual, hot fashions you can find and come back and let me know which is your favorite by Femme Luxe Finery!

Fun Activities For Your Toddler - Wooden Animal Jigsaw Mini Puzzles

Sometimes toys just doesn't cut it for your toddler.  Kids, after a while of playing with the same toys, start to get bored and look toward something more challenging...something that gets their little minds to thinking.

jigsaw puzzle for kids

I have a three year old grandson who has a very active imagination.  He will go through a whole conversation, actions and a very detailed play with his toys.  There are also those times where he loves to sit down and figure out how things work...and will do so, until he thinks he has it.

puzzles for kids

That is why these wooden animal jigsaw puzzles are perfect for him.  They keep his little mind busy by slightly challenging him on where each piece fits inside this mini puzzle frame.  Once he saw what this package was, when I received it in the mail, he couldn't wait for me to open it up and begin helping him.  Before he could even complete one puzzle, he was already grabbing another.

My Best Femme Luxe Finery Fashion Haul Yet!

Hey there, friends!  Finally, the temps here in Southeast Missouri have hit the freezing winter temps.  No, I'm not a winter person, let alone, a person who likes cold weather...but I have to admit, the weather here has been quite unusual with temps in the 50's and even low 60's at times.  This morning as I type, we have a chilling 22 degree temperature that just makes me want to stay inside and keep warm!

And...this haul from Femme Luxe Finery couldn't have come at a better time.  Every piece you see here is perfect for that cold weather (well, the cold shoulder may leave you cold, a bit) and they, once again, are super comfy!  I know I say this over and over again, but Femme Luxe Finery's clothes are so very comfortable, considering if you order the right size for you.  All their long sleeves, cotton clothing could not be any more comfortable and they are always so soft and very well made.

I was super excited when I received, and tried on, these two cold shoulder long sleeve dresses (I wear them as a long shirt with leggings.)  To me, they remind me of a combination of a modern day sweatshirt and a long top that you can wear either to work or on your casual day off.  Shoot, these are perfect for even going out on the weekend, especially when you pair them with your favorite leggings or even as as dress with some knee boots or cute little booties.

These Cold Shoulder Cut Out Shoulder Dresses are so cute and I love them!  They are available in colors; Gray, Black, Mustard & Khaki Green.  As you can see here, I love the style so much that I ended up with the Gray and Black, but I will definitely be going back for the Khaki Green color!  They come with a matching fabric belt that you can cinch at the waist, giving you all the curves you want or need.  For me, personally, I will probably forego the belt, but as I slim down, the belt will definitely be added.  The size I am wearing is a M\L (8/10) and fits just the way I like if wearing with a pair of leggings.

Available Colors: Black, Mustard, Khaki Green
Available Sizes: S/M (4/6) & M/L (8/10)
Price: $14

The next item is also going to be one of my favorites on these cold winter days.  It is the Belted Long Line Hoodie Dress.  This, to me, is what I call a modern day, updated hoodie.  The length is longer and has more of a streamed lined style.  It has your hoodie with a drawstring and unlike most hoodies, this comes with a matching fabric belt as well.  You can cinch it up at the waist to add dimension or accentuate your curves.  This can be worn as a hoodie dress or, like I plan on doing, wear it with jeans or leggings. (can you tell I'm a legging kind of gal?)

Available Colors: Black, Pink, Gray
Available Sizes: S/M (4/6) & M/L (8/10)

Price: $22

The last item, shown here, is the Gray Knitted Turtleneck Mini Jumper Dress.  Just by looking at this, you would think it was a gray turtleneck sweater...and you may be right, but this sweater can also be worn as a mini dress, which is so cute when you pair it with some white sneakers.  But...since it is winter, you guessed it, I will be wearing this with some leggings or some frayed jeans.

It is super comfy with plenty of stretch that allows you to snuggle up on that cold winter day, either lounging around the house or keeping warm while you are on your way to work.  I'm thinking, since tomorrow is going to be another cool day, I may just throw this comfy sweater jumper dress on for work.  Of course it will be paired with black leggings.  I haven't decided on which boots to wear, quite yet...tall boots or booties?  What do you think?

Available Colors: Gray, Black, Duck Egg, Stone
Available Sizes: S/M (4/6) & M/L (8/10)
Price: $22

Can you see the pattern here in the prices?  Every piece that I have posted, here and in the past, have been the most reasonable priced fashion pieces I've come across.  I mean, $14 for that Cold Shoulder Cut Out Jersey Jumper Dress...Come on! And finding an oversized, comfy sweater at just $22 is a steal.  It's hard to beat Femme Luxe Finery's prices.  If you don't believe me, go take a look at their site right now.  They have some of the most cutest, hottest trends today and a fraction of the price.  Come back and let me know what your favorite items are from Femme Luxe Finery.
