Park Walk

Hello, bonjour, hola!  This is my first post in almost a month and I really missed writing and posting, serious withdrawals were happening!  Between battling a nasty cold and work being insanely busy and hectic, life was honestly just exhausting and after getting home every day all I did was sleep.  I am very happy to say that things are somewhat back to normal at work and I am finally healthy again so I'm back to my normal routines: blogging, cooking, and getting out into nature!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Day in Seattle

This weekend I did something I hadn't done in forever, I visited the observation deck of the Space Needle!  I'm pretty sure the last time I was at the top of the Space Needle was when I first moved to the PNW 10 years ago.  I forgot how beautiful everything looked from up there, the views were absolutely spectacular, especially because the weather made it a perfect fall day!  Crisp air, sun shining, and leaves turning - what more could fall be?  Just one of many reasons I love living in the Pacific Northwest.

I obviously need to include some pictures of beautiful Seattle after talking about the views from the Space Needle!

Spend vs. Save: Fall Neccessities

Fall is just around the corner and that means it's time to update the wardrobe and swap out some items in the closet.  One of my favorite things about fashion nowadays is the fact that trends are so easily accessible and you don't need to break the bank to be current with fashion.

Spend: 1 | 3 | 5 | 7 | 9
Save: 2 | 4 | 6 | 8 | 10

Time for Wine

Autumn is just around the corner and it is definitely beginning to feel like it in Washington.  The leaves have started changing colors and are falling off the trees and the air constantly has that crisp after-rain smell.  Without a doubt my favorite season is autumn because it leads into Thanksgiving and Christmas, which we all know is the the most wonderful time of year.  The change in season also gives me a reason to darken my color palette.  I love a bold red lip, but I love a dark burgundy/wine lip even more and this look was definitely inspired by and takes from this Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick.
