101 Things Update

Happy Halloween everyone!  I love Halloween, but I have been such a Scrooge this year (can you be a Halloween Scrooge?)  I didn't put out any decorations, I didn't make any Halloween goodies… I just haven't had the time.  It makes me a little sad, but that means I have to go ALL OUT next year.  

Tomorrow is my 28th birthday.  So I thought it was a good time to do a 101 Things Before 30 update.  I have exactly 2 years to complete my list.

So here is how I am coming:

#5 & #20:  Clean out closet & Have a Spacious and Organized Closet
I have a spacious, organized closet now, AND I recently did a big clean out.  (See more on my closet here).

#6 Read at least 50 Books:
I read my 5th book out of 50 - Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn (the author of Gone Girl).  SO good.  She really is so talented.

#15 Update Phone
I ordered the iPhone 6 and supposedly it is on its way… it was supposed to ship Oct. 24th, but then I got an email saying that it wouldn't ship until Nov 4th.  So this one is in progress.

#21 Yoga Teacher Training
I have mentioned before that I started my Yoga Teacher training in September.  I have had 2 out of 9 weekends and another one next weekend so I am well on my way!

#36 Create a Jackson Guide
I recently posted my travel Jackson guide.  You can read it here.

#52 Try 50 New Recipes
Here are a few things I have made recently:




I have a lot to do in the next two years!

Favorite Things: Fall Trends + Giveaway!

Happy Thursday friends!  Some of my blogger besties and I are back to share our favorite things, and today we are showcasing our favorite fall trends!

Although there are a lot of fall trends that I love, when it came to picking a FAVORITE I had to go with the blanket scarf.  I love scarves.  And the thing about scarves is that it doesn't have to be really cold to wear them.

It takes a long time for it to get cool in the south.  We are still have 80 degree days.  But I can throw on a scarf and feel more like fall without sweating to death.

Last year, the oversized scarves became popular, and I am really excited they are still on trend this year.  I love the fuller look of the blanket scarves.  Plus, if I get really cold, I can just wrap up in it!  I got this one from Target, but I also have another one on the way that I ordered from Land's End that is monogrammed, so I am sure it will be making its debut here soon! 

Shirt: Gap (similar); Scarf: Target; Skirt: J. Crew (factory version); Shoes: Shoemint (similar)

Angela, Ashley and Shannon all have picked really amazing trends too, so make sure to go check out their favorite trends for fall. 

And now, we have a giveaway for you!  We want you to be able to buy YOUR favorite fall trend, so we are giving away $75 Piperlime gift card!

Good Luck and have a great day!

Skincare with Orogold

One of my 101 things before I Turn 30 is to find a skincare routine.  I have never really had much of a skincare routine.  The only thing I do is wash my face with Philosophy Purity.  That is all.  My main focus is prevention, you know stop signs of aging before they start.  And as I near that big 3-0, I want to make sure to do that. 

So I was really excited when Orogold contacted me about trying some of their skincare products.  Orogold infuses their products with 24K gold, which helps nourish and nurture skin.  

Since I was going for preventative, I chose the Orogold 24K Multi- Vitamin Night Nourishment, 24K Multi-Vitamin Day Moisturizer and the 24K Multi- Vitamin Peel

I have been using the moisturizers and the peel for a few weeks now, and I really like it.  I love that the peel isn't too harsh on my skin (so many times I find that they are way too rough).  My skin feels really smooth and refreshed after I used it (I use it about twice a week).  And the moisturizers are really thick.  I can't stand it when lotions are runny and almost liquid. I use the moisturizers daily.    

Thanks so much to Orogold for letting me try their amazing products!  I highly recommend them! 

Have a great Wednesday!

Tuesday Shoesday Week #116

Happy Tuesday Shoesday friends!  I hope you are having a good start to your week.

Have you heard of Joules?  They are a really cute British brand.  And they have SUPER cute rain boots.  Now, Joules rain boots are available at Target!  And they have the cutest colors and patterns, plus they are less than $70.  I am pretty sure they are online only.

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 

You can also get the boot socks for them.  I love the pink boots with the navy and white stripe socks.  And of course I love the puppy boots!

Have a great day!

Summer Skirt for Fall

Happy Monday all.  I hope you had a great weekend.  I spent the majority of my weekend in bed trying to get over this nasty bronchitis.  It just doesn't seem to want to go away!

Even though we are deep into fall now, I am not a fan of sidelining my favorite summer pieces until next spring.   

This super summery neon floral skirt is one of my very favorite from this past summer.  It is so bright and fun.  You might think it is a summer only skirt, but by keeping everything else dark- dark top, dark booties, dark lips- it transitions well into fall.  

Shirt: Michael Stars (similar); Skirt: J. Crew (similar); Booties: Target (similar); Hat: Target (similar)
In other news - there are SO many exciting things coming up.  I can't wait to share them with you…  so I suggest you stick around.  That is all I can say for now!

Have a great day!

Odds & Ends

Happy Friday all!  Thank you so much for your well wishes.  I think I am on the mend but I will most definitely be taking it easy this weekend.

Two new coffee table books just came out and I am dying to get my hands on them.

I love a pretty coffee table book, and these two by two of my favorite brands are, I am sure, amazing.  The covers alone are gorgeous.  

In other Tory Burch news, I was super excited to get an email yesterday about the Tory Burch private sale!  I've got some of my favorites below.  

Have a great weekend!

Black and White

Happy Thursday all.  Hope you are having a good week.

Today's look is a simple one, but always a good one.  You can't go wrong with black and white, am I right?  Add a burgundy bootie (or any color, really) and you are good to go.  

Tee: ℅ Everlane; Skirt: Banana Republic (similar); Shoes: Shoemint (similar); Scarf: Gap (similar)

Remember, sometimes the simplest looks are the best.  I'm keeping it super short today because I am battling a nasty case of bronchitis and who knows what I might say with all of the crazy meds I've taken!  

Have a good day!
