three things: to live that cozy life (plus some extras!)

three things cozy life

So glad you decided to swing by! Here’s a *virtual* cup of something warm and delicious. Most of my current days are spent working on final papers for the semester (reading and writing and editing some more) while also thinking about what dessert I’m going to make for Thanksgiving. Last year I did the classic move of two (homemade, of course) pumpkin pies, but this year I want to do something a little more Southern. Maybe Pecan? Ooh…even better…Jackson Pie! YUM.

It’s Wednesday, it’s been a long week already (anyone else?), and we’re just barely on the cusp of an *actual* season change…so let’s talk fun fall stuff, okay? My brain can’t handle much else.

Fall fashion (including beauty) is hands down the best sartorial season and no, you can’t argue with me, its a plain fact. Perfectly broken in jeans, soft sweaters over even-softer worn t-shirts, booties, hats (!!!), mussed up hair (or a slept-in braid), and my favorite– the return of lipstick. Yes and amen.

Here’s a few of my current favs, pretty tones that are versatile and do well for workday-to-date-night looks. I’m thinking the goal should be a nice balance of soft pulled-together femininity meets relaxed tomboy at a weekend bonfire. Links below!

I know this is like *really inspired* but I thought you might like to know what I’m in to these days. I enjoy hearing about what others are in to- be it podcasts, books, beauty products, or secret breakfast spots, I like to be in the know.

So I’ll share some of my likes and you can tweet or comment me some of yours. That way, we’ll all be in the know and no one will be left out. Like I tell my 4 year old, it’s more fun to share! Continue reading “Stuff I Like”
