Things That Thrill Me

Baking different types of breads always is a fun and comforting thing
to do as the weather cools off, so I’m looking forward to the house
smelling of apples and cinnamon with this recipe.

I’m starting to gather inspiration for my bridesmaid makeup for my cousin’s wedding next month – I love that this tutorial uses the original Naked palette and is both smoky and classic.

Now that it’s officially September, I’m just chomping at the bit to start decorating for fall – this neutral mantel has me feeling all the feels.

ICYMI – Kate gave one of her friend’s a fabulous hair makeover, and now I have major hair envy.

Ryan and I never have had a house to decorate for Halloween before, so I’m excited to add a few spooky touches to the outside that make me nostalgic for the decorations that my parents put out every year in the house that I grew up in. These signs would be so cute on our front tree and a relatively easy DIY project!

Trail mix plus peanut butter is guaranteed to satisfy my sweet tooth. Yum!

Keeping with the fall/Halloween decor, how cute would these rustic pumpkins look on any doorstep?

I’m still holding strong with my love of zucchini, so why not throw it in with some Parmesan and bake it?!

Bring on the fall and winter fashion, people – I’m ready to bust out my blazers and blanket scarves.

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland

  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
  • Today was a good day to have a great day. ☀️ #happy #thursdaythoughts
