style: sweater weather.

I think I’ve mentioned about a trillion times that fall is my favorite (FAVORITE) season. The leaves changing colors, the pumpkin flavored everything, the anticipation for the holidays – I love it all. And then of course there’s the scientific fact that fall attire is the best attire – scarves, boots, beanies, leggings, and of course…sweaters ....more

style: kickin’ it.

Unless you’ve been living under a (Pinterest-less) rock, you’ve probably noticed that sneakers have made quite the comeback recently. For a while it seemed sneakers (or tennis shoes, depending on where you live) were reserved only for athletic wear, but lately they’ve pushed boots and flats out of the way as a go-to for a casual-chic daytime look.

wellness: whole30 – that’s a wrap!

And just like that – my first Whole30 Challenge is d-o-n-e-z-o. I’ve got to say – I’m really proud of myself. I’m not very good at challenges, and as much as I may have made it seem like it was a walk in the park – Whole30 was not easy ....more
