TGIF! AM I RIGHT!? My elementary school bus drive used to say that every single Friday as I got off the bus. He also dressed up as Santa before Christmas break and gave us little gifts. He was a true gem. Anyway, I missed last week’s favorites round-up, so I’ve got a little extra goodness for you today!Read More
It’s FINALLY the weekend!!!
The leaves are changing, Halloween is almost here, and I’m on my second gallon of Apple Cider this Fall. I LOVE this time of year. I’m going to be honest, this week was a little rough and I’m glad it’s over. But I’m excited for this weekend. Mark comes home tomorrow and we have a couple Halloween parties to go to. We’re going to be bank robbers, we decided tonight. So I really need to throw together our last minute costumes! I also have an essay to finish by midnight, so let’s jump into my favorites from this last week!
1.) Talenti Caramel Apple Pie Gelato
I would consider myself an expert of all things ice cream/gelato, I mean, I run an ice cream shop…needless to say, I’ve had a lot of ice cream things in my life. But this week was the week that I tried the greatest, the most delicious, the absolute best gelato or ice cream I have EVER had. Run to the grocery store and try this gelato! The Talenti Caramel Apple Pie flavor, with chunks of pie crust, apples, and lots of caramel mixed in, is perfect for Halloween weekend. I’ve already gone through my first pint, and I’m planning to snag more tomorrow!
2.) The Vanished Podcast
Last week I shared one of my favorite “true crime” Youtubers, Danelle Hallen, and this week I’m excited to share my favorite podcast, The Vanished. Like I mentioned last week, I’ve always loved content regarding true crime. I think it’s fascinating and important to learn about crime in our world today. We can learn so much and potentially make a difference in a case, just by listening. Each week Marissa shares the stories of missing persons across the country, interviewing family and friends in the podcast, and working hard to bring as much attention to the cases as she can. I’m truly impressed by her show and I highly recommend checking it out! Not only is it great content, but she is doing great work aiding in the cases. I highly recommend subscribing!
3.) This Sweater!!!
GUYS!!!! I FOUND IT!!! I snagged this gorgeous turtleneck at Burlington last week, shared it on my stories, and immidately got several DM’s about it. And I couldn’t find it ANYWHERE. But, after lots of searching, I tracked it down! It’s under $40 and linked here! I sized up to a Large for an oversized fit, I’d recommend sizing up at least one size if you like that fit too.
Who remembers when you were cool if you wore a fitted Aeropostale tee, flared Pink yoga pants and a good ole pair of Ugg boots? Well, I’m still cool guys. I STILL love my Uggs and I’m not ashamed to admit it. However, my good old Ugg are looking a little ratty these days. But I just didn’t want to bite the bullet to buy another pair. Then, I came across these super cozy Minnetonka boots at TJ Maxx and I LOVE them! They are super warm, cozy, and frankly, look just like Uggs! I think they make a great Ugg “dupe” if you aren’t wanting to spend too much!
5.) Rebel Heart by Lauren Daigle
I know, I know…Lauren AGAIN. She’s just too good. I can’t get enough, what can I say! This album is GOLD.
“Lord, I offer up this rebel heart
So stubborn and so restless from the start
I don't wanna fight You anymore
So take this rebel heart and make it Yours”
Happy Halloween weekend friends!
Stay safe, eat lots of sugar, spend time with those you love.
Remeber the saying "beauty is pain"? Eh, I don't agree. If it isn't super cozy, comfy, and crazy soft, you won't catch this girl wearing it! I prefer clothes that feel like pajamas, but I can also wear them in public. So no, you also won't catch me wearing old flannel Simpson PJ pants in the grocery store! But these ribbed Aerie leggings, that's another story. Today I've rounded up a bunch of super comfy items on MAJOR clearance, including everything I'm wearing in this go-to outfit I've been wearing non-stop lately!
First, I have gush about my love affair with Aerie. I have been LOVING their stuff so so much lately! They are such an awesome brand in general. Their girl power body-positive mantra is incredible and their products follow suit. Like I already mentioned I am OBSESSED with these ribbed leggings. They come in two colors, are in stock in almost all sizes, and get this, they're on major sale for only $12!!!! I'm already ordering myself another pair. I'd say they run pretty true to size, I went with a small.
Still on the Aerie subject I've also had my eye on another pair of pajama leggings from their line, these "plush" sleep leggings are super soft and also come in several colors/patterns! And also are on sale for $12! Beyond pajama leggings they have a TON of other items on huge sale right now too. I'm linking a sweatshirt, a $5 scarf (similar to the francesca's one that sold out in a flash) and a gorgeous lace bralette that I'm definitely adding to my cart!
Abercrombie and Hollister have also been killing it with the cozy wear lately. I actually wore this gorgeous chenille sweater for two days straight (don't judge me, okay!!!). It's SO soft but also beautiful! It basically makes you look like you tried when you really didn't. My kind of sweater! Comes in 5 colors too! I also wanna give a shout out to this under $20 fuzzy cardigan, it's so soft and warm. It runs a little big so size down if possible, I went with XS! I love pairing the cardi with this adorbs $12 camo pocket tee. I'd recommend sizing up for a looser fit with this one, I got a small. I'm linking a bunch of other comfy items I've been loving below as well, check it out check it out!!
Hope you had a fabulous Thursday!!

I hope your week has been amazing so far! Mine has been spent serving ice cream to cute kids and sleeping in as late as I could. I'm savoring every last moment of summer. But as the nights are getting cooler and the weather's getting crazier, I have been finding myself reaching for my fall pieces more and more. So tonight I want to share a few staples for transitioning your wardrobe from Summer to Fall! First things first, let's talk about this sweater. Light weight knits are one of my favorite pieces to throw over a tank or swim suit in the summer months. I love the look of simple denim shorts paired with a sweater similar to this one! But, they're also just as cute paired with a chunky scarf in the Fall. I've had this specific one in my wardrobe for YEARS now, but I will link some similar options below! My next staple is definitely holy jeans. They've quickly become of the biggest trends this summer and they aren't going anywhere! I think they're the perfect medium between shorts and jeans (you know, the kind without holes). Last but certainly not least, these booties! Peep toes booties are such a great transitional piece to have in your closet. They look cute paired with a flowy dress or cute jeans and a sweater. I love love love this trend and these ones are under $30 (MAJOR SCORE I KNOW!)!!
Alright that's all for now! Let me know your staples for transitioning from summer to fall below!
