Fashion to my left, fashion to my right...

September, September. I love this month. A new season upon us offering a freshness, a new excitement, a bit of a breeze, and my People Style Watch is a little more plump and full of inspiring style. I am beyond thrilled that my favorite beach gal Lauren Conrad is appearing on this issue too. I've hit the mothership flipping through and am savoring every second. Remember the line in Sex and the City when Carrie describes how she would sometimes buy Vogue over food when she was younger and broke because she felt it filled her up more? Yes. Absolutely yes.

Fashion is my forever. Every part of the industry thrills me. The hype, the glamour, the styling opportunities. One example to offer my sentiments further, would be the film The Devil Wears Prada; Andy(Anne Hathaway), initially a non fashion enthusiast, snickers to herself when Miranda is styling a look, and referencing a specific shade of blue, known as cerulean. Andy gets called out and explains how she doesn't understand why fashion people act so strange, it's all blue, yada yada.

Miranda with her chic smirk, proceeds to verbally devour Andy and her observation, while providing a detailed account of how runway fashion trickles down the line to the masses, and despite what a non believer Andy may be, she too has bought in with her own sweater she is wearing in that moment, which happens to be in the blue family. That's definitely the shorthand version of this synopsis, so if you are not familiar, please stop being so deprived and get a hold of a copy.

My always favorite fall fashions:
Over sized cardigans
Ankle boots
Scarves
Hi-Low pullover sweaters atop dresses
gold and rose gold jewels, pops of teal(there's something enchanting to me about teal in the fall/winter months paired with deeper shades)
bold statement pieces like big bangles
bright lips-a punchy pink, a Monroe red, and so many more


Tell me, do you fashion too?


Til we meet again,
M

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Change Has Arrived

New adventures lie ahead.  I've left my full time job in college admissions and am now full time into mine and Hunter's business.  I'm working on a few other ventures so when I know more I'll follow up on that.

I spent 6 years working at my last job and while I always knew I would go to my business full time eventually, it hasn't truly hit me that I'm not just taking some vacation time and spending a few days away.  I'm ready for my new normal though.

It's times like this I love having a lifestyle blog.  I'll look back on this post at some point and the thoughts had, the feelings felt will all come back.  This is a big milestone, leaving a corporate type job and going full speed as a small business owner.  Yay!!

I've got big plans for the next.  Excited for what's to come.



Let's meet again,

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:
