Hidden Fox Gets a Face Lift!

Hello All!!

Its been over a year since the last time I wrote. A LOT has changed!

I recently finished Esthetics school and have decided to turn my clothing business into a esthetics business. I want to be able to make an impact on peoples lives. Our skin is the largest organ of the body and it is our first line of defense agains harm and disease. It is vital that we take care of it and the right way! If you have read any of my past posts, self image is wildly important to me.

The way you see yourself effects your life and those around you. I decided that helping people with the thing they SEE can have an amazing impact on someones life. Im not saying Im trying to make the world beautiful and make up is the answer...In fact, I am not really into make up application on clients. I've been known to make a few exceptions here and there for friends and family. Im saying that if I can help someone reduce wrinkles to make them feel younger, reduce redness to make them feel brighter, to reduce age spots or brown spots to make them feel more confident, why wouldn't I? Esthetics isn't just about make up and facials at a spa...its MUCH more in depth and far more scientific then that. I can impact many areas on the body for many different types of outcomes and treat a vast array of skin conditions. I can help reduce the appearance of cellulite, smooth your skin, reduce and even possibly eliminate unwanted hair growth, those little white heads on your skin you cant seem to get rid of and so much more. Heck, I can even whiten your teeth!! Together we can help each other become more confident on the outside so we can speed the process of healing on the inside. Each new client I talk to has a story. Each one has life struggles. Everyone has something about their skin they would like to be different. Through Hidden Fox Aesthetics, I can help you become a better, brighter, more vibrant you! I plan to offer you products and clothing and most importantly services, that are great for your skin and will help protect you from the elements, free radicals, further damage and even preventative care. I promise to only offer you top quality and relevant products. If you have questions about your current products, new products, services, new treatments, etc, ASK!! Im here for you and promise to give you ONLY the most accurate information I can. So my fellow foxes, lets talk skin! Leave me comments below. This is not your typical beauty blog, this is so much more. From Miss Vixen and myself, We say LETS DO THIS!! Hope to hear from you all very soon!!
Much Love, Miss Mimi Fox

Just the Meat and Potatoes

There are lots of updates and tons of foxtastic things going on. First of all HAPPY SEPTEMBER!!! I know its sad that the summer is over but I was born in October and feel like that is my strongest time of year. I feel comfortable in the warm colors of fall and the cozy clothing where you don't have to layer up too much just yet. You can still be outside and the air smells different and wonderful. I especially love apple picking and pumpkins and the golden glow everything seems to have. Not to mention apple cider and apple cider donuts! I could honestly go on about all the amazing things about fall! On to updates though.

Every budding entrepreneur that doesn't come from money and doesn't have grants, needs a way to fund their business. That usually means working a full time job and working on your own business part time. I had a really great job at the beginning of the summer that was supposed to go until November. It ended 3 months early because the company was for sale and then it sold. The entire month of August I have been unemployed which has made things pretty difficult but I have been able to adapt. I finally got a new job yesterday which should prove to get me out of the red and into the black in about 1- 2 months. I have not stopped working on The Hidden Fox though. The website is up and is being worked on. My wonderful boyfriend has been helping me as much as he can in between the millions of things he has going on in his own life. He is in his third year of college, as an adult going back, so things have slowed due to his school. I am not well versed in website creating so youtube and google have been my best friends throughout this website process. I have also been able to purchase some product and have also created some product myself. I always wanted HF to be a combination of really great finds and products created by HF itself. I will always make sure that whatever we offer you, will speak perfectly about what we represent. We have been trying to put product up on the website but we are having some layout issues with how the content is appearing in the shop. Set backs happen so I'm working on things I can do when I hit a wall. 

Every good blog needs pics. I haven't been going out much or even putting makeup on so I haven't really been taking pics or outfits or hair. I hope to fix that for you all very soon. :) Its very hard to balance a facebook page, twitter account, blog, website and linked in account along with your normal life. That stuff plus dishes (no dishwasher,) laundry, 4 pets, car, food, daily hygiene, job...Again, I could go on, is SOOO overwhelming. Its worth it when you have a dream but takes a bit to get under control and in a routine of. 

I only remember a short portion of my life being my vein days. Snapping photos of myself and my friends, going to parties and dancing. I am trying to harness that part of me and keep you all updated on whats going on and not just how fabulous I look that day. Haha! I want HF to be about more then JUST the fashion. I want you to know ME like I want to know all of YOU! I  encourage you to tell me about you and about what you would like to see HF become and what it can offer all of you. I promise I will make the product available as soon as we fix the kinks and then WATCH OUT because the Foxes are taking over! 

<3 Xoxo,

The Final Countdown!

(Not my fav photo but Oh well!)

Ok so now it's time to get down to some details about whats been going on. Long story short we FINALLY have some official Hidden Fox merch on the way! I'm starting out with accessories first and working into clothing. This week I dove into learning Photoshop CS4. Not easy stuff for me as I have close to zero idea what I'm doing. A girls gotta start somewhere! Trying to find free help these days is nearly impossible so what better time to really become self sufficient then NOW?! 

I don't want to spoil the merch thats on the way but I will give you a sneak peak at some Custom HF merch. These were graciously created by Dan Auer out of natural wood. Soon you will see what they become :) (If you haven't been following, Dan has helped me develop the brand from day one and also created our logo. WE LOVE HIM! Behind every great man is an even more amazing woman and HF creative developer Cindy Auer! whom we ADORE! TY both!) 

There has been so much progress that I could go on forever but that would make this blog SUPER boring. Um...the website should be up and running soon as well. You will only be able to use Paypal to make purchases at first. We still have some details we need in place before we can take credit cards online. We will be able to take credit cards in person so ill be sure and let you know where we will be!

Don't forget that the main reason this brand was created was to say "when you wear HF you are showing people you are making positive steps towards LIFE RIGHTS" Not just human rights or animal rights, Life Rights. We support Kindness, Positive Change and Growth within ourselves and the world around us. We support each other and help one another. We will fight judging those and help those who judge us. BE A FOX! Let out the Hidden Fox in you and show the world the amazing person you are! 

Until next time, be good, be safe XOXO, 

Ps you can catch me on twitter @Ms_Mimi_Fox and Facebook. Im always here, should you ever need a friend. :) <3

Crunches, Curls and Oreos, OH MY!!

OH BOY, has it been a while since I have posted! Quite a lot has been going on so I will catch you up as best as I can.

Lets first talk about how things are progressing personally. I am almost through all of my dental appointments. Id say about half way. Endoscopy is in March, wisdom teeth removal consult is in April. Still struggling with the leg pain but taking it one day at a time and well...thats about that!

As you may know I have been feeling kind of beat up lately. Especially with all of the health stuff. I decided I was tired of feeling down, having a major lack of energy and motivation and overall crappy. I kept putting myself into "cookie holes." Kinda like a "K" whole but Oreos where my drug. Man I love a good Oreo! Double Stuffed of course! So 2 weeks and 2 packs of Oreos later I made a move. I picked up "Jackie Warners 30 Day Fast Start DVD." BOY does it kick my butt! Im taking it a little slow as of now and trying to focus more on the things I am putting into my body. The more crap you put in the worse you feel is SOOOOO true! I'm telling you, if you want to FEEL results fast, pick it up for less then $10 at your local Walmart. I wont go into giving a full review but feel free to google the snot out of it. Im a big fan of Jackie and her show "Work Out." this is the first full week of workouts for me so I am still at the beginning of this whole thing. I already feel like I have a bit more energy and more strength. Along side the DVD I am also using "My Fitness Pal" to keep track of my daily intake. I am trying not to obsess over it and just use it as a guide. No super human, Hulk strength yes but I notice a change when I left trays at work and my energy when I am awake. Waking up is still VERY hard. WOOT! Beach Booty Here I Come!!! Is anyone else starting a workout program?

I would also like to announce Pedro Rodriguez! He will help us bring HF designs to life! He has wicked amazing graphic design skills and has offered to help us on our journey!!! Please check out his personal line Devils Blood! It may seem like an interesting match but this man is well versed and extremely talented. He has a passion for graphic design like no one else I have encountered! I am THRILLED and OVERJOYED that he has offered to help out HIDDEN FOX!! This also means, MERCH SOON!!!! (for real this time :))

Have you checked out the HF Facebook page lately? It really is a great way to keep up with the day to day influences and up coming excitement! There have been quite a few Fox Sightings lately and a few more to come! Lets get the hype started so we can make some big moves this spring! Let me know of anything going on in your town in 2012 and I will personally look into making HF part of your year!

I'll stop here because I could keep writing forever. I'll spare you and give you a bonus post later. Hahah! Here is a little something to keep you smiling until then. This is a video shared by fellow skulk member Kathy Gibson! Thank You Kathy!!

Happy Foxintine's Day!!!

Well Happy Valentine's Day! If you are interested in a little history lesson on how this day came to be, Click LOVE.

Stand up for love, romance and all the gushy stuff. Most people rebel against this day due to being burned so many times. More then not, people feel its "cool" to rebel against this day. "flowers are stupid and a waste of money" If you read home decorating magazines, they always say fresh flowers bring great energy into a home and you should have them everyday. Isn't it easier to do when someone else buys them for you? ;) Also, I see women all the time on Facebook saying how they had a hard day and are in serious need of chocolate. Well ladies, today is the day for you! Free Chocolate!!! Then there is the card. Sure depending on the card you can end up in a roaring laugh or sobbing your girly eyes out. Bring it on! Last but not least, the possibilities of fine jewelry. Again, ITS FREE!!! What are you complaining about?! Now lets break this down on the mens side of things. I know for years I always felt it was necessary to give them something as well. Men always feel like the women have all the fun with holidays. Surprise your man with HIS favorite candy, a little risky outfit and a fun little gadget he's been wanting. For years I actually gave my sweetheart flowers as well. You wouldn't believe how much men (secretly) like getting flowers!

For the singles... I stated in a previous post, make it about you. I still believe strongly in this. You should always keep your faith in that "happy ending." Do good, think positive and good will come to you, I PROMISE! My cousin is getting together with a bunch of her friends tonight for dinner. Thats what I did last year. Remember the history. Its about standing up for love and believing in it. Your prince or princess will come. Did you read that, I said WILL come. :) Believe!!! Go out tonight and have some fun. Go get that decadent dessert you always keep yourself from. Take that extra long shower or bath. Dance in your undies like no one is watching! Chances are there is someone out there as lonely as you, waiting for the day to meet you so you can begin your love affair. Either way you are NOT alone. Even though I have a partner in crime, I will still be alone tonight and I also have to work and serve food to the happy couples. Hugs*!!!!

To all of you, have an AMAZING and LOVELY DAY!!!
Your Foxintine Miss Mimi Fox!

Message In A Bottle, Yeah!

I know I haven't written one of these in a bit. By "these" I mean a post written on a personal level. I have felt very drawn over the past couple of days to give you a bit of an update on me. I had felt at times that it would be "unprofessional" to write about such personal matters but HF is all about not being ashamed or worried about being judged. So on that note, here is my update for you...

About 2 months ago I received health insurance for the first time sine 2009ish. I was able to get back on track with treatment for my undiagnosed chronic leg pain. I was also able to get back on track with my dental health. I have hit a few bumps with both of those things but continue to move forward taming pain and improving my sleep as best as I can. Its hard to sleep when you are in pain and its hard to feel great when you are in pain and aren't getting the proper sleep. Throughout this journey I recently hit another snag with my stomach. Working with the different over the counter medications, prescriptions and vitamins, I started to have bleeding or may have been having bleeding (ulcers etc) and just didn't know. Unsure of where the bleeding was coming from or why it was happening, I was sent to the GI doctor. On top of the dentist appointments, dr appointments and oral surgeon, I now have a sweet appointment for a endoscopy.

I tell you all of this because I would like you to know whats going on with the progression of HF. I realize that the 57 people who like the facebook page will be able to say they were with me from the start. I appreciate the crap out of that! However most people wont have any idea about the journey. It has taken me a while to mold this brand and shape it into my version of perfect. It isn't your traditional brand and it follows no normal guidelines. We don't have any clothing yet but I try hard to focus on the message and the community aspects until I can bring you the clothing. Its not about the clothing entirely. Its about the message, what the clothing says and says about YOU! What it says about who we are and what we stand for! I want HF to speak about the reality of life. For example, the struggles a person may face while starting a clothing brand. :) THIS IS REAL! Real life happens and its happening to me. It may also be happening to you.

My message in all of this is really, regardless of the health issues I am facing during this process, I am continuing to work at night in spite of my lack of physical ability, I am moving forward. I schedule a dr or dds appointment, I go to it, I go to work, I come home, I sleep, I work on a new HF design, I take care of my apartment, bills, pets and various responcibilities. I want to throw the towel in some days but instead of burning myself out I hit the "slow motion" button. I just take a little longer doing everything. I really hope to have clothing for you by spring. One day at a time though. I really believe I am going through all of this for a reason. I can handle it. I know I can do this. I AM doing this! :)

Thank you to all of my friends, family, strangers, co workers and beings that have been positive support throughout my journey. Thank you for the love and kindness. Please stay with me and believe in HF. I truly believe with all my heart that this will all help HF become what I know it can. What it WILL be.

Thank YOU!
Miss Mimi Fox
