Bird is the word: Flying off the shelves for Mother’s Day + Win with Foxy Originals!

Foxy Originals gifted me the pieces in this post in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. 

“[My kids are] 7, so to me, I’d just rather have a hug and a ‘Happy Mother’s Day!’ But when they’re that age ― and moms know ― you have to be a good actress. That’s when you gotta turn into Meryl Streep. Seriously, because they give you gifts that are just … [sighs] … So I just had to go ‘Oh that’s amazing! Oh that’s so beautiful!’ And they were so proud. But now I understand why athletes buy their moms a house when they make it ― because they really should to make up for this crap!” — Wanda Sykes 😂😂

As much as we love the kids’ homemade gifts and cards, sometimes it’s nice for us mama birds to get something we would pick for ourselves. This selection of Foxy Originals favourites fits the bill. 🐦 😂 But hurry, they’re flying off the shelves!


Foxy Originals Havana Collection earrings SS 2019

I’m loving these beauties from their new Havana collection. Like all Foxy pieces, the Bali earrings here in silver and Catalina earrings in gold are all lead-free, made in Canada, and reasonably priced (these ones are $30/pair). And they’re surprisingly light. Some statement earrings can be heavy, but these you’ll forget you’re wearing. (Until someone tells you how much they love them. Which I promise won’t take long.)

The Festival earrings are so sweet too. I would wear the wee cacti every day. Or the lightning bolts. Or the little gems.

But if the budget allows for just one piece, the Mama necklace is what I’d suggest. “It takes love, patience, kindness and whole lot more to run a nest,” Foxy says, “Wear this necklace, featuring a mama bird and two baby birds, close to your heart with pride.” You can also get the necklace with with one or three baby birds, in gold or silver. (All are currently on sale for $24, originally $30.)
