Sweater Weather Hual

If you haven’t noticed yet my favorite article of clothing is sweaters! I literally can’t get enough of them. Living in Arizona isn’t ideal since the chilly weather doesn’t last very long. I still manage to layer with a sweater pretty much all year long. 

In the cooler months I live in chunky knits. Cable knit one of my favorites and I am really loving this color and style of this sweater here:

I prefer the oversized fit for most of my sweaters, it can look really stylish and be comfy all at the same time. I love pairing this oversized turtleneck sweater with my favorite skinny jeans and loafers.

Here I layered it with a thin trench and my favorite slingback heels and frayed black denim.

This pretty pale rose knit sweater is another great staple that can be worn in so many different ways! I really love the length and color of this sweater. You can easily order a size bigger and wear it as a dress layered with your favorite boots.

This knitted dress is everything! I love how comfortable this is and how easy it is to layer to create many different looks. I would recommend sizing down in this piece, I am wearing a large and its a bit loose on me. I really think a little tighter look would be really flattering!

I really like the small turtleneck, not overbearing and it really looks chic. I am a big fan of the 3/4 sleeve! This has quickly become a staple in my wardrobe and I can’t wait to dress this up!

This sweater is super soft and the color is an adorable pink. It’s really meant to be worn off the shoulder, I am wearing a size S/M. I would definitely go up a size or two to get that more oversized off the shoulder, dress look.

Femme Lux Refinery offers a variety of styles and they are super curvy girl friendly styles which I love! Their price points are great too, you can pick up a handful of styles for under $50. They also ship world wide!

Hope you enjoyed my sweater haul from Femme Lux Refinery! For more ways to style these be sure to follow along on my Instagram! #LuxGal

Unexpected Ways Of Keeping My Home Smelling Fresh

Keeping my house clean is often a daily chore for me with a house full of boys. I love walking into my home and feeling that sense of coziness and relaxation. I only get this sense when I walk into a clean house that smells fresh!

I am constantly keeping up with my kitchen and our bathrooms to keep my home as clean as possible. I am a firm believer that if you keep these high traffic areas tidy it will save you so much more time from dealing with bigger messes later on.

Clean often, to avoid bigger messes!

I grew up with my Mom cleaning with Clorox®  so I tend to use these products in my home to help me keep my house feeling clean. When I clean my home with Clorox® Scentiva™, my home can be clean smell amazing all at the same time!

Clorox® Scentiva™ Multi-Surface Cleaner kills 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria, cold and flu viruses, Staph, E. coli and Salmonella on hard, non-porous surfaces. I prefer the Clorox® Scentiva™ Pacific Breeze & Coconut™, it elevates our home with amazing scents that will transform any space into a tropical oasis. A blend of coconut, pineapple, peach, and apple surrounds my kitchen as I clean and leaves me feeling happy! It has a finishing blend of Tonka, sandalwood, and vanilla paired with the with fresh tropical fruit to provide long lasting freshness and a serene space.

My favorite most used cleaner by far is Clorox® Scentiva™ Disinfecting Wipes. With all the germs my little ones track in, I like to stay on top of disinfecting my non-porous surfaces. Clorox® Scentiva™ Disinfecting Wipes kill 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria including cold and flu viruses, Staph, E. coli, MRSA, Salmonella, Strep, and Kleb.

With the same power and trust of Clorox®, you can use a product with an amazing scent to clean and disinfect your home!

You don’t have to choose between a product that is effective and products that smell great. I love how the Pacific Breeze & Coconut™ scent last, keeping my home feeling like an oasis long after I’ve cleaned. Clorox® Scentiva™ is an affordable way to elevate our spaces in our everyday lives or during those busy seasons where you have company.

No need to continuously buy fresh florals or candles, Clorox® Scentiva™ steps up and gives my living spaces that extra TLC with amazing scents.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Clorox® and how effectively clean it left my bathrooms. I was really excited to start using Clorox® Scentiva™ Toilet Cleaning Gel and Clorox® Scentiva™ Bathroom Foam Cleaner. It’s really convenient how the room just fills up with this amazing scent effortlessly as I do a quick clean.

A quick clean, with long lasting tropical scent!

I must say using these products has made my cleaning habits more frequent. I just love the feeling of how welcoming and clean my home feels each time.

I always get compliments when I have guests over after wiping down the bathroom. They always ask what scent that is and where it’s coming from. It’s amazing how well Clorox® Scentiva™ works, I can transform a clean bathroom into a Pacific paradise in just minutes! #BreatheInYoureHome

Fun Gift Ideas

My holiday shopping mode has been in full effect since last month. If you’ve kept up with my recent gift guide filled with great gift ideas for the family you will want to keep reading and find some great ideas that will keep the smiles coming Christmas morning.

With so many great deals happening right now I can always count on to have amazing prices and on-trend items my family will love!

I went ahead and picked up this amazing deal on a highly rated air fryer that doubles as a toaster oven!

Farberware Air Fryer Toaster Oven

This was on my must-have list this year because it makes a great alternative to frying your food in oil, which we as a family often do. This is definitely a great gift idea for those that love to cook! Not only will this make a great alternative for healthier fry cooking, but it also offers a variety of other ways to cook. This sleek looking air fryer toaster oven, bakes, roasts, toasts, warms and air frys! I have to admit the best part will be saving me on cleaning, frying with tradition oil can be so messy!

Shopping for my little ones seems like such a big task, I want them happy but also want to gift them items that will keep them happy. If you saw my last gift guide I went ahead and purchased an Xbox one console for my boys, so I figured gaming cards for their new gaming system would be the perfect go-to gift!

FIFA 19, EA XBOX Digital Game Card

Walmart carries a wide selection of digital game cards for every type of gamer out there. These cards make the perfect gift and are easy to claim with the code, no need to worry about storing a physical game. Since Jude plays soccer and loves to watch games I figured I would gift him his first sports-related game with FIFA 19. This will be great for all of us to play as a family or friends and for him to be more familiar with the sport from another perspective.  I also got him an Xbox gift card for him to use on other games or extras to give him the best Xbox experience!

We all know how trendy and sought after certain toys are including Hatchimals. Eli loves anything to do with animals and I was so excited when I found a Hatchimals Mystery egg at my local Walmart! I was able to order online and pick up the same day**.

Hatchimals Mystery

I cannot wait to see the smile on my little mans face when he sees his new Hatchimals Mystery with 4 possible choices, Bunwee, Pandor, Hedgyhen or Elefly! This will be his first ever interactive toy that will learn his name, play games with and watch grow from baby to kid!

You can’t beat all of that for this price, Walmart brings exceptional value to this year’s hottest toys!

My next gift idea is for both boys to enjoy. I really loved the idea of a cozy fun gift for our boys that can be used for multiple things.

Ozark Trail Flash The Rocket Kids’ Sleeping Bag

This will put a fun twist on our family movie nights or the kid’s sleepovers. Not only are they super soft these come in many different creative designs. This gift is also great for any kid who likes to play, it offers a great way for them to use their imaginations and play together!

This next gift idea is great for anyone who is into DIYer or the person who constantly loses thier tools, We are totally guilty of this!

Hyper Tough 86-Piece All-Purpose Tool Set

Yes, that’s right, a 86 piece tool set under $40! This really stood out to me because the case it comes in is really practical for organizing and storing tools which will help us not lose them as often. I thought this would be a great gift for my husband this year since we will be moving into our new home next year and with all our ideas for once we are in the new house we could definitely use all the tools.


Checking off my families Christmas list was so easy with all the variety of great products Walmart offers. You can also expect amazing prices and super convenient same day pick up** or free two-day shipping* on your orders.
