Maybe it's because fall clothes are the best clothes or because it's easier to say yes to comfy and cozy pieces, but every year when my Fall Stitch Fix comes, it's always the best of the year. Last year was no exception and if funds had been available to me, I would have purchased every single piece. This year's fall Fix JUST as amazing and my stylist hit the ball out of the park. This was the best fix I've received all year (and I've been receiving them every 2-3 weeks because I'm on an unlimited fix plan.) All of the pieces were flattering, my style, and perfect to wear as the seasons' transition. Before we jump into the unboxing and try-on, here's a brief . . .
Affiliate Links Currently snuggled in my bed with my doodle-toodle, watching Netflix's newest chick-flick "Sierra Burgess is a Loser" because I cannot get enough of Noah Centineo after watching "To All The Boys I've Ever Loved." Jury's still out on if it's as good as "Too All The Boys" but it's definitely a contender so far. Also, speaking of Juries...I got my first Jury Summons last week and I was freaking out because we just finished watching The Staircase (also on Netflix.) Thankfully, they filled the jury before I had to go in, so phew...but still. A little nerve-wracking to say the least. Anyway, a while back, Sadie and I shot a bunch of hair tutorials . . .
I'm getting all my fall decorations out this week and enjoying the *slightly* cooler weather here in Utah (you know, 86 degrees instead of 100 degrees) but before I officially bid Summer adieu, I HAVE to talk about the trip we took to the New England coast two weeks ago. Why? Because when I got back from my trip, everyone at work asked me: "Where did you go for vacation?" and I said: "I spent the week at the beach outside of Boston!" to which every. single. person said "Wait...I didn't know Boston had a beach." UGH! A little piece of my heart broke off every time someone said that to me. Yes, the New England coastline isn't like Florida or California, but it is . . .
affiliate links It's seriously the best time of the year. September is here tomorrow and that means fall will be here at the end of the month. That means cooler weather and sweaters and cozy joggers and ALL the pumpkin scented candles. That means the holidays are also going to be here super soon (already started listening to Christmas music this week and I'm NOT sorry about it.) September also means that the BEST beauty sale is coming around again: Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty!! It feels like it was just yesterday when I was sitting down to write out my guide to the March sale, but here we are, 6 months later and gearing up for the next one! Ulta’s 21 Days of . . .
This post was sponsored by Just Right by Purina. All opinions are my own. It was only 77 degrees today in Utah (and slightly breezy) and I KNOW that means fall is around the corner and will be here soon - albeit, not soon enough. It got pretty stinking hot here in Utah for a few weeks, so we had to hunker down in the one room in our house that has air conditioning to stay cool. Now that the temperature is looking to be in the high 70's/low 80's for the next few weeks, I'm whipping out my list of things to do with your dog this summer and checking the last few things off the list, like going for a hike up in the canyon and taking them to go swimming at Dog . . .
This post was sponsored by adidas. All opinions are my own. I know, I've already complained about the fact that we don't have central air in my house about 10 times in the last week, but hey. It's freaking hot in Utah and not having central air is ROUGH. We thankfully have a window unit installed in our room so we can sleep in the cool air, but the rest of the house stays nice and toasty all day long. In fact, by the time the sun goes down, it's about 15 degrees warmer inside the house then it is outside the house. The heat makes it basically impossible to turn the oven on in my house or want to cook over the stove, so Dustin and I do a lot (and I mean A LOT) . . .
THE COUNTDOWN IS ON! Dustin and I will be on a plane before we know it, flying across the country and back to my beloved New England to spend a week at our grandparent's beach cottage and I. cannot. wait. It's been a really crazy summer for us, in mostly good ways, but also in a few stressful ways. This trip is exactly what we need to remove ourselves from our lives for a little bit and reset for fall. But, of course, before we get there, I have to pack for a beach vacation first. *Sigh* Packing is not my favorite thing. Ever since my junior year of high school, we've spent a full week at my grandparent's beach cottage, a few miles away from the Hampton boardwalk . . .
I've got a lot of helpful content lined up for the next couple weeks, so I decided it'd be fun to do a little personal life-update in the form of a currently post. As much as I love putting together lists and writing thorough reviews about makeup and clothes, I also don't want to lose grasp of the fun posts that made blogging enjoyable to start. After all, it’s important to me to share the little things about life because that’s what makes life the most vibrant!

If you were hanging out with me on Instagram Stories this weekend, you probably saw the ridiculous state my makeup vanity was in on Friday night. The term "hot mess" has never been more accurately used then when referring to what it looked like. I spent the whole night going through every drawer in my vanity, throwing out all the old makeup, organizing all my good makeup, and finding surprising little treasures, like a half-eaten piece of chocolate and some command hook strips. You know, cause clearly my makeup vanity is the best place to store those kinds of things (insert eye-rolling emoji . . .
Welp. August is here. Which basically means Christmas is around the corner. Happy New Year, 2019! (Am I right, or am I right?) I know we're already well past the 1/2 year mark of 2018, but I wanted to sit down and do a check-in on my word of the year, and hopefully encourage you to do the same. Why? Because, for me, it's around this time of year that I've thrown the towel in and given up on whatever goals I've set for myself this year. The bright and shininess of a new year have worn off completely and I'm usually drowning in the motions of every-day life. Get up late. Go to work. Come home. Make dinner. Try to do some work on my blog. Go to bed too late. . . .
