It is officially time to start holiday shopping! I am going to be posting a series of gift guides to help you through this holiday season. I’m starting off with stocking stuffers. These are smaller items that are fine to gift alone or add to any other gift. Can I put these on my wish list as well?! Also I’ll have a post on Black Friday with all the great deals going on so don’t miss out on that! Happy Shopping!
The other day I went to the pumpkin patch with my friends and I took some pics to share with you guys! Nothing like a rustic pumpkin patch, am I right? I was really hoping for a legit corn maze but there was only a hay maze. Meaning we could see everything over hip-level. Super fun for little kids, not too scary for this 26-year-old. Have you guys been to a pumpkin patch yet? I always try to go every year to get in the fall spirit. Andrew couldn’t go this year because he has his Board exam this Wednesday so he’s been studying like a maniac. Which is great! But I’m ready to get my husband back soon! Once he is done, he’ll be completely done with school and can start working full time! I’m so proud of him for all he has accomplished. If any of you have gone through physical therapy school, you know what a job it is. Being married to someone going through it felt like I was in school for three more years too. (Okay, I know it was harder for him. But still!)
Pumpkin patches are totally acceptable photoshoot locations right? I’m going with yes! I loved how all these little families are walking by me trying to pose… One day I’ll have cute pictures of my little kids, but for now it’s just me haha.
I used to love salt water taffy. But now I look at it and think instant cavity.
Here is our wheel barrel of pumpkins! We later went home and painted them. Way less clean up and mess. And the pumpkins last way longer.
Our super fast and wild hay ride.
I hope you all have a great week. Thanks for stopping by!
Hi friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was packed with lots and lots of football. But I couldn’t be happier because the Seahawks won, which means I am going to Seattle on Saturday! I feel like Seattle is actually home to me. Is that weird considering Andrew and I only lived there for 4 months? I am so ready for the all the rain and all the food! I’m making a list of all my favorite places and will see how many we can get to. I may gain 20 pounds in one weekend. But so worth it! I’ve been dreaming of Piroshky Piroshky. It’s at Pike Place Market and is this little Russian bakery that serves up both sweet and savory foods. If you look at the website you might hate me, because you’ll want to go eat immediately. Oh man I got the beef and cheese one I think, and it was so decadent. Umm I just checked their site and you can get it shipped to you!! I may have to try that out once. I like how I’m going on and on about food and this is an outfit post. Can you tell I’m hungry right now? It’s lunch time. I hope you enjoy today’s post! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Today I put together an outfit that is super warm, but also fashionable at the same time. I love layering different fabrics and textures to give a lived-in look. I usually stick to neutrals and add in accents of deeper tones like hunter green and navy blue. Starting off with basics like distressed pants and a chunky knit gives you the freedom to accessorize. Then you can throw on a textured coat, scarf and beanie to bundle up! Gold jewelry and a structured bag are always classic and will pull your entire outfit together. It has been pretty cold here lately, but still super sunny so I couldn’t forget a great pair of sunnies!
(fyi- I purchased my pieces in-store, so the selection online varies)
Nothing feels more like the holidays like a warm coat. I found this beautiful burgundy coat at H&M and knew I had to style an outfit around it. I like wearing one piece in a rich color, and pairing everything else around it. I chose these awesome pants that have a block of denim at the calf and a printed shirt that has a quilted feel to it. My trusty brown booties go with every outfit, so this one was no exception! It has finally cooled down in southern California and I couldn’t be happier. We are supposed to get rain tonight, but not nearly as much as other places right now. If you are in a blizzard or rain storm stay safe! I hope you all are having a great week!
There is something so classic and simple about this look that I love. Two things…three things I am loving right now: boyfriend jeans, open toe booties, and white t-shirts. You can do so many things with these pieces, they are absolute staples. I’m sure most of you are freezing wherever you live. I am still waiting for that drop in temperature here in southern California. Let’s be real, it will never happen. So if you can’t work the open toe boot, opt for a closed toe shoe instead. And you will most likely have to add in a few more warm pieces like a beanie or scarf. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I am ready to get back into the grind this week and get stuff done. Have a great day!
It’s almost the weekend guys! So today I have some adorable workout clothes to share with you. Most are by Peach Pop, a super fun company. They recently asked me some questions for their blog and I figured I’d share everything I said with you as well! I need to take a moment to explain how often I’ve been wearing these pieces…I’m talking ALL THE TIME. Basically I want to live in the pink sports bra and purple tank. The sports bra is the most comfortable sports bra I’ve ever worn. You can’t even feel it which is why I love it. Whenever I wear sports bras I get a back ache, but this is not the case with this one. I need this in 100 colors!!! Okay on to the interview questions…
First off, tell us a little about yourself and your blog. My blog and youtube channel are an extension of myself. I post content on beauty, fashion and health. I am always looking for natural alternatives in my beauty routine and finding the absolute best products on the market. My blog is where I share all of that with my viewers. I do not claim to be a professional makeup artist or a personal trainer, but I am like many of you trying to find ways to look and feel our very best. My job is to make that process a little easier for you!
How is fitness a part of your life? Fitness has always been a part of my life. My family is very active so they keep me accountable if I’m ever too lazy. I wish that I woke up every day ready to go on a run, but that is far from the truth. I’m the type of person that would rather eat better, and exercise less. But what keeps me coming back for more is the feeling I get after a great workout. I have more energy, my skin clears up, and my mood improves. I also like to stay in shape just for the personal satisfaction. When I slack off, my body will show it, and that motivates me to tone up. You will never regret a workout, so if I can push myself to change into workout clothes and get my mind right, I’ll be so much happier afterwards. And wearing cute workout gear always helps!
Who is your fitspo? My fitness inspiration is all of my YouTube subscribers. They are the ones who keep me accountable and give me great tips and inspiration. The easiest way to get in shape, is to have someone who will hold you accountable. Have a friend workout with you to keep you motivated. If you are at home and want to stay on the couch for one more episode, it’s easy to skip a workout. But if you have a friend waiting for you at the gym, or a yoga class to attend, you are way more likely to get moving.
What does your day-to-day look like? My day-to-day includes a LOT of sitting in front of a computer screen. I usually wake up, respond to emails while drinking some tea or coffee and make a to-do list for the day. I will work on the day’s blog post and catch up on my social media accounts. Once I change out of my sweats and get ready, I will either start filming or editing future videos. Once I wash my makeup off, I like to throw on some work out clothes and get in a workout mid-afternoon. This is when I start crashing and need to step away from the computer screen and break a sweat. Then it is back to editing! I try to unplug from all media once I start cooking dinner and let myself relax! Before bed you will most likely find me watching HGTV. I’m really a 4- year-old at heart.
What is your beauty and style philosophy? Be yourself and be comfortable. Those go hand in hand to me. If I’m not comfortable in what I’m wearing, or if I have piles of makeup on my face, I don’t feel like myself. I like to take some beauty and fashion risks but I always stay true to who I am. With the social media world blowing up, it’s easy to compare yourself to others. Remember that nobody else is like you. Embrace that.
You and your husband are adorable. What’s one of your favorite activities to do together that get you moving? We love to go on hikes with our dog. It gets us outside and breathing in some fresh air. After you finish a hike, you always feel like a million bucks. Even though some are a struggle, the end result is what I chase. We also like to play tennis and go to the gym together. Being active is a great way to stay connected and feel better from the inside out.
Hey guys! I was so looking forward to this fashion post. I decided to take the pics in San Luis Obispo because I felt the style of this dress fit right in. This entire outfit is from BooHoo, and seriously go to their site right now and check everything out. Everything is really unique and very affordable. The print and style of this dress is unlike anything I own. Honestly, I love each accessory here too. The watch is so unique and the rings are great to layer. I have been using this bag every single day in Seattle so far. It’s super roomy and makes my life much easier! Oh yes and the shoes are perfect. They would be super cute with jean shorts or skinny jeans too. Love!
I was feeling super hippie for this look. I wanted something comfortable and lightweight, but still really fun and full of accessories. I layered a ton of jewelry, but made sure it was all delicate enough to go together. I also paired these amazing gladiator flats and fringe bag. (I’ve been using this bag everyday and it is perfect! I tied a knot at the top to make the strap a little smaller.) I think I am going to become obsessed with bralettes this summer. I just got this black one from ShopLately and love how effortless they are, and the lace looks so cute peaking out of your top. They do run pretty small, so watch out for that. I cannot wait for summer. I mean, it kind of already feels like summer because of how hot it is. But, until June rolls around I will just pretend!
Yesterday I went to brunch at Beso in Hollywood, hosted by Bri Seeley and Maile PR Media. I will have pictures up tomorrow of the event details, so don’t miss that! Here is my outfit of the day. I kept it casual in a summer dress and denim vest. It has been super hot so light layers are key. These nude wedges were perfect with the outfit. It was my first time wearing them, and I already know I will get a lot of use out of them! I hope you all have a great Monday! Start the week out right and it’ll pay off by Friday! Oh also, today is my last day of being 24 years old. So don’t be shocked next time I post some pics and my hair is grey and I have lot of wrinkles! Ha!
