Stitch Fix #13

This post contains affiliate links to help continue my love for Stitch Fix.

It has been two months since my last Stitch Fix box. I decided to make this one my Mother's Day gift. I asked my stylist for clothing to make me feel beautiful. I had been feeling rough lately since we just moved and I haven't had time for too much. Somehow, my stylist had read my old note asking for clothing for Florida. I had gone on vacation and come back, but it worked out because I need summer clothing more than anything else. This month I had a different stylist, her name is Erica.

What is Stitch Fix? Stitch Fix is a styling service. When you request a box, the stylist will look at your Pinterest board, that you will set up, to find out your personal style. The stylist picks out five pieces to send you. The five pieces are to update your wardrobe and get you to step out of your "regular" style box. The cool part is you can try on the clothing in the comfort of your home and keep them for up to three days. If you end up purchasing nothing, you only pay a $20 styling credit. If you buy any of the items, the $20 styling credit is applied to your purchase. If you buy the entire box, you receive a 25% discount. The best deal is when you keep the whole box.

Pixley Peeves Halter Top & Dear John Lillie Cuffed Denim Short
Let me first say don't mind the carpet and walls. We just moved in, and I need to pull up the hall carpet and paint. With that being said, let's move on to the goodies. I'm always in need of everyday clothing. I have a dress addiction and would buy nothing but dresses during the summer. In reality, I don't wear them that often. I fell in love with the Pixley top. I loved the neckline on it. It was slightly big around my arms, but it didn't show anything, so I kept it. The Dear John shorts weren't too tight nor too short. Now that I'm older I like body parts a little more covered. I wasn't a huge fan of showing this much of my legs, but I loved the look. I kept both the shorts and top. Good job, Erica!

Dolce Vita Jasmyn Lace-Up Gladiate Sandal
I wasn't sure about these because my feet swell so bad, but I soon discovered that they match everything. You could even wear these with a dress, and they look great. I decided they were essential to update my spring/summer look. Plus, they were padded and comfy.


Adrianna Papell Devorah Dress
As soon as I saw this dress I was in love. I love anything red, white, and blue. This dress looked great but felt a little stiff. Also, I have a few others just like it. I loved the red zipper in the back. It totally made this dress fun. I ended up selling it to another Stitch Fix member on a group. One hot dress!

Collective Concepts Ali V-neck Dress
I had wanted a floral dress because I see floral everywhere. I thought this dress was a little too bold for me. I wasn't a fan of the flowers and the colors. Also, not a big fan of the style. I ended up keeping this one because it paid for itself but it's up for sale. If anyone is interested, it's $75 shipped. It's size small. It should fit a size 4 and 6. The US only!

I was euphoric with this box. I didn't receive anything that I hated. It was all fun to try on for a mini fashion show. I scheduled my next box for the end of May.

The Original Harlem Globetrotters will make their 90th anniversary the biggest in their history!
The Harlem Globetrotters began in 1926 as the Savoy Big Five. Now 90 years and 20,000 games later, the team has become one of the most recognizable franchises in sports.
The Harlem Globetrotters continue a world famous tradition of ball handling wizardry, basketball artistry, and one-of-a-kind family entertainment that continues to thrill fans of all ages.
My family has been attending the show for several years now. It's a fun family event that we always look forward to. My youngest daughter is so excited for this entertaining basketball game. She loves the mascot, Globie. Don't expect it to be a regular game, it's more of a comedy show. The players will run through the stands trying to throw a bucket of water on each other. They also pick people in the audience to make jokes about or to pull out on to the court.

#Zootopia Review 
A few weeks ago I took my daughters to an early screening of Zootopia. They both loved it. My younger daughter is 9 and a half. She is already wishing for some Zootopia toys and asking me to buy the movie. My older daughter is 13. She wrote the following review.
What I think of the Disney Film Zootopia.
It was adorable! With all of the animals in their human clothes and how they had human jobs. I also liked how they proved that not just big, strong, tough guys could be police officers, but a tiny little rabbit could be one, too.
I felt bad when she got her dreams crushed in the beginning by being on parking ticket duty. But she made the best of it and made it fun. And when the Rhino told her to stop, she just couldn't do that.
Then she took on what she thought was an easy case and found out it was much bigger than she thought. It was nice to see different animals work together, even if they're the opposite types.
Overall I thought it was very inspirational for little girls. It's also cute, funny, scary, and suspenseful. I LOVED it! 
~ Katelyn (Go check out her blog here.)

I enjoyed the movie myself. I don't think it's really necessary to see it in 3D. However, there are some cool 3D parts, like when Judy first arrives in the city from her small farm town, it reminded me of many movies with big city arrivals. I'm sure I will buy Zootopia so we can watch it again and again. I especially liked the music and the theme of not giving up, even when you could fail.

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, the award-winning worldwide smash hit Broadway musical, is coming to Detroit as part of the Fifth Third Bank Fox Theatre Series.  Produced by NETworks Presentations, this elaborate theatrical production will come to life on stage at the Fox Theatre from Friday, May 20 to Sunday, May 22.

Golden Tote #1

Golden Tote, Stitch Fix, Collective Concepts, designer, clothing, fashion, fashion blogger, style
This blog post contains affiliate links so I can earn credits towards new clothes! 
A few weeks ago, I decided to give Golden Tote a whirl. I think after a year my love for Stitch Fix was growing a tad stale. Golden Tote offers three different bags, one for $49 (two pieces, one you pick), $99 (four mystery items), and $149. I decided to go with the most expensive which is $149 for 5 or 6 pieces. The best part, is you pick two of the items that you will receive. Here's where Golden Tote differs from Stitch Fix, you either keep the whole bag or return it all. If you think about it, you're receiving a great price on designer clothing at a little over $20 bucks a piece. I had no idea the clothing was some of the same brands that Stitch Fix uses. I was very pleasantly surprised.
As soon as I saw this sweater I was in love. I loved the light airy feel and the colors. The shirt was made a little longer in the back. The first day I wore this I knew I would wear this shirt a ton. I received lots of compliments. I also loved that it was from Collective Concepts.
The top above was one of my selections. I like red, white, and blue. This shirt looks great with a pair of jeans.
This dress was one of my surprise items. I liked it, but felt a little chunky in it. I'm on my clean eating kick so I'm planning on rocking this dress while in Florida for Spring Break.
This dress was my favorite out of all of them. Of course, it was my second selection item. I think this will be perfect for hitting the parks in Florida. It fits a short girl perfectly, and I love that it is red and blue.
I love sailboats, so I was excited about this shirt even though button downs are totally not my style. I'm thinking it would look cute open and tied with a pair of cut-off shorts. I've worn it once, and I'm not a fan. It's a tad preppy for me.
For the final item I received this cardigan. I liked it, but I didn't like the feel of it. I ended up giving it to my mom.

I was overall very happy with this month! The price per item is so much cheaper than Stitch Fix. For the most part, I liked what I received. I can't wait for my second Golden Tote!

Raita Yogurt Review & Giveaway

food, foodie, healthy, Indian, local, Michigan, Raita, yogurt
Mom Among Chaos received these items to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own.  
The Mom Among Chaos girls love to try new food. We celebrated my co-blogger Stephanie's birthday with some homemade cocktails, Fuller House, and Raita Yogurt.

Raita Yogurt is a health focused yogurt dip with a spicy Indian flare. Raita is gluten-free and under 200 calories per serving. It comes in three different unique, exotic flavors. 

We decided to do our taste testing with ingredients we already had on hand. We dipped with various gourmet crackers to try some variations.


Zesty Cucumber with Cilantro & Mint
The cucumber was the first container I opened. I love cucumber, mint, and cilantro. However, I could not get past the consistency of this yogurt. It smelled and tasted great but was way too watery and did not have a creamy texture.

Spicy Carrot with Cumin & Coriander
I'm not a huge carrot fan, but I loved this yogurt dip. The Indian spices are a great mix. I think this dip would taste great spread on a veggie pizza. It would make a nice healthy, spicy base instead of tomato sauce. 

Tasty Tomato with Cumin & Coriander
I loved the flavor of this yogurt as well. It's not too spicy but not plain. It has an excellent flavor. I can see myself buying this yogurt as a dip for guests or using it on a sandwich roll-up.

I LOVE that Raita Yogurt is a local Michigan company. Raita can be found in Ann Arbor, Royal Oak, and Metro Detroit grocery stores including Vince and Joe's. 

So, when you're planning your next get together or just want a healthy dipping option, look for Raita Yogurt at your local grocery store.

We are giving away a Raita Yogurt sampler pack to one local Metro Detroit resident. Enter to win! 

Which flavor would you like to try?

Salvation Army March 5th Sale


The Salvation Army Thrift Stores announce March Mayhem Sale
Exclusive clothing and housewares discounts, March 5

DETROIT (Feb. 25, 2016) – The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) family thrift stores will host its March Mayhem Sale on Saturday, March 5. The sale will feature 50 percent off clothing and 25 percent off housewares at all metro Detroit thrift stores. Doors will be open at most stores from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at its two dollar stores in Pontiac and Detroit.

“Even with this mild winter weather, it’s challenging to predict clothing needs as temperatures fluctuate,” said Merle Miller, administrator of The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center. “At our March sale, we’ll cover everyone’s clothing needs from winter to Spring Break to summer clothes, all at affordable prices and to benefit a worthy cause.”

In addition to 50 percent savings on clothing, shoppers will have opportunities to pick up great deals on shoes, accessories, electronics, linens, furniture and more during bonus sales announced throughout the day.

All proceeds from the 35 metro Detroit thrift stores benefit The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Centers, independently funded, 180-day residential rehabilitation program for adults.
My daughter and a friend dressed up as hobos for an Annie Jr. party.
I love how I can find great deals at the Salvation Army thrift stores. Last month my co-blogger & I went searching for old fashioned looking clothing for our daughters to wear in their upcoming play, Annie Jr. Not only did we find the perfect costumes for the play, but I also found some "like new" Aeropostale & Old Navy blue jeans for my daughter. It's even better when you can get items 50% off. Good luck to all those deal shopping this weekend.

Founded by William Booth in London, England, in 1865, The Salvation Army is a faith-based, non-profit organization dedicated to serving people in need without discrimination. The ARC is an integral part of TSA’s mission, and offers substance-abusing adults the opportunity to rebuild their lives through a voluntary, short-term residential self-help program designed to establish a sense of dignity, self-esteem and personal strength that will allow them to resist the desire to abuse a substance and regain their rightful place as contributing members of society. Completely self-funded, the ARC draws its entire operating budget from the revenue of the 35 Salvation Army Thrift Stores located in Southeast Michigan.

PINKALICIOUS THE MUSICAL 
RETURNS TO THE CITY THEATRE IN DETROIT
ON APRIL 15-17

This one hour musical is based on the popular children’s book by Elizabeth Kann and Victoria Kann. Vital Theatre Company's Pinkalicious The Musical returns, after a sold-out six-show engagement in 2014, to the City Theatre on Friday, April 15 through Sunday, April 17.

In Pinkalicious The Musical, Pinkalicious can't stop eating pink cupcakes despite warnings from her parents. Her pink indulgence lands her at the doctor's office with Pinkititis, an affliction that turns her pink from head to toe - a dream come true for this pink loving enthusiast. But when her hue goes too far, only Pinkalicious can figure out a way to get out of this predicament.

Does your child or children love silly stories? If you have school-aged kids I bet they have already heard of Pinkalicious. I noticed that when I volunteer at the elementary school media center this series of books is always very popular. My youngest daughter and I are excited to attend this show for the first time. She is 9 years old. We always enjoyed seeing the play If you give a Mouse a Cookie at the City Theatre. It's nice that it's a smaller venue so you are closer to the action on stage. My daughters are in a youth theatre  with the Warren Civic Theatre, so we know how much work goes into these productions.

bundled. Review & Giveaway

bundled, review, giveaway, michigan, help others, enter to win, local
Mom Among Chaos received the Great Lakes Bundle to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own. #bundledmi

I recently had the chance to check out bundled. I made up my mind that bundled. is an incredibly cool company for a few different reasons. The first is that it was created by a fellow mom. Mom Among Chaos loves seeing women succeed. Second, bundled. spotlights local Michigan businesses. All the items that you will discover are made locally. Finally, bundled. employs Metro-Detroit area adults that have disabilities. A portion of each bundle goes to providing paid job opportunities. 
I received the Great Lakes Bundle.  It includes a leather Michigan key chain (which will be included in the giveaway), Rocks Glass, Motor City Print & Michigan stickers (also in the giveaway), and a Michigan Map Tile Coaster. 

I loved the Michigan map tile coaster so much that I had to check out the company's website. Each bundled. package comes with a little card that tells you how to purchase items from the Michigan store that they're located in. I LOVE shopping locally, so this is a cool way to introduce myself to more local shopping.


Would I recommend bundled.? Yes, what a great company! I love what they're doing for Michigan small businesses and how they help adults with disabilities. I think their products make great gifts and you should check them out.
Mom Among Chaos is giving one lucky winner a chance to win two Detroit stickers and a Michigan key chain. USA only! Ends 3/11/16. Enter to win in the form below.

Stitch Fix #12

#stitchfix, Stitch Fix, Daniel Rainn, beauty blogger, fashion, fashion blogger, Pixley, urban expressions, Kut from the Kloth,
This blog post contains referral links, so I can continue my love for Stitch Fix! #StitchFix 


For my 12th Stitch Fix box, I asked my stylist, Rachel for some comfy jeans to update my current wardrobe. I didn't ask for any Valentine's Day clothes since I own enough dresses.
What is Stitch Fix? Stitch Fix is a styling service. When you request a box, the stylist will look at your Pinterest board, that you will set up, to find out your personal style. The stylist picks out five pieces to send you. The five pieces are to update your wardrobe and get you to step out of your "regular" style box. The cool part is you can try on the clothing in the comfort of your home and keep them for up to three days. If you end up purchasing nothing, you only pay a $20 styling credit. If you buy any of the items, the $20 styling credit is applied to your purchase. If you purchase the entire box, you receive a 25% discount. The best deal is when you keep the whole box.

I was just thinking the other day that I need to buy a new purse. My coach purse has to be 3-4 years old. This purse is HUGE. The picture doesn't do it justice. Heck, you could carry a dog in this bag. I was not fond of this color. I was annoyed because I know that this color was in last spring/summer. Also, this color doesn't go with that much. I didn't like the gold zippers with the black around it. It was just not my style. I sent it back.

My husband liked this jacket. He thought it looked a little 50's. I didn't like the collar or how the bottom of the jacket purposely doesn't line up. It was also a tad snug. I sent it back.

Pixley Dardie Lace Inset Blouse
This top was a basic blue shell top. I was a little discouraged, so I didn't take a picture of it. I tried it on, confirmed that it was a basic shell, and took it right back off. Bummer! 

Daniel Rainn Koda Split Neck Blouse
As soon as I laid my eyes on this top I couldn't wait to try it on. I thought it would look great with a pair of black leggings. The only problem was the front of the shirt wasn't long enough to wear with leggings because all girly parts need to be covered when wearing leggings. Can you tell I was tired of pictures? LOL!

Kut From The Kloth Kate Distressed Boyfriend Jean
Finally, the item I asked for in my Fix. I wanted a pair of comfortable jeans. These were them, so I did end up keeping them. After wearing them a few times, I noticed that you might want to go down a size. They stretch out around the waist super fast. I'm normally a size 6 and wish I had gotten these in a size 4.

I was not super impressed with this box. I felt that it was off target. I hope that my next box, which is for my Florida vacation, will be on point. The last seven months have been rough on our family. We moved from our home that we loved to care for an elderly relative. We have dealt with lots of verbal abuse. So, we're picking up and starting again. We're moving again in March. I need a little pick me up instead of feeling and looking worn down.
