Pink Sweaters & Planner Kits


Well, I can't sleep so I'm up super late (or is it early?) working on this post because my mind won't shut down. So instead, I read three articles telling me to get out of bed and do something relaxing that will eventually tire yourself out. Apparently the worst thing you can do is lay in bed with your brain churning. Who knew.

To fair, this ties in nicely with this post. As many of you know, I've been pretty invested in my Erin Condren planner. There are some people who love their electronic calendars and agendas but I learned pretty early on that:

1) I'm not one of those people
2) I hate getting alerts on my phone
3) If I don't write it down, I'm gonna forget about it. Even with an alert.

If you're anything like me and love paper planners, here's how I accessorize my planner with the Planner Society's Box Sticker Kit every month to keep it fun and colorful...

An Easy Friendsgiving

Easy friendsgiving outfit, dress, booties, silk scarf, gold earrings, cheeseboard and crossbody
Guys! I was kindly invited to my first Friendsgiving this year! I'm so excited to meet new friends and keep the old. The number one thing on my mind is, surprisingly, not my wardrobe. It's my contribution! I've been on a recipe hunt for at least a week now. I'm in charge of a side dish and I can't decide between an easy garlic and green bean recipe or corn bread. I'm leaning more toward the green bean route. I'll let you know what I go with.

This outfit is exactly like the title: easy. That's the beauty of Friendsgiving in the PNW, it's a wonderful time to get together but it's not too fancy (unless it's on the invite). My invite was a group text so I know it's going to be a cozy night. More about eating and drinking wine than clothes. Which is totally fine in my book. Come December, I've already been invited to a few Holiday party and Christmasy events!

Baker Boy Hat & Starbucks Stops


What a great and relaxing weeekend! I hope each of you were able to enjoy and take full advantage of the time off before heading back into work. As many of you know (probably via IG), I was able to take a mental health day (MHD) on Friday and it was perfect. I did so much and I was able to focus on all of the things I truly wanted to do, not just the things I should do... which is how I carried my vibes into the weekend.

DIY Moisturizing Oatmeal & Honey Mask

face mask for acne

What a great mental health day yesterday, guys! I did everything I wanted to and had no guilt associated with it. Isn't that the best feeling?

This post is a fun little DIY for those who tend to have acne prone dry skin. This mask always helps moisturize and soften my face. This mask is great for any area of your skin that needs a little softening or exfoliation. For the recipe, check out below!

Happy November!! Can you believe it? Good grief, I can't.

I hope you had an a very happy and safe All Hallows Eve. I went for a long walk and my neighborhood's costume battle was strong last night! Man-o-man, I saw some great outfits. The amount of creativity kids and parents put into their costumes this year was incredible! To be honest, the holiday really snuck up on me this year and we celebrated Halloween last week at work so I'm already full swing into the next two.
