Fall Feels

Guys, the weather this weekend dipped below 90 and it. was. magical. I can’t even begin to explain to you how this feels as a Floridian, we absolutely LIVE for these days. 88 degrees practically equals sweater weather here! ha! Anyway, we soaked it all up.

We spent Saturday in our backyard replanting some of our flowers that got pretty beat up in the Summer heat. And on Sunday after church I spent most of the day in the kitchen making pumpkin bread. It was such a lovely, simple weekend!

5 Things I'm Loving

$14 Pack Of Headbands

I am so into these headbands! My best friend told me about them last week and I ordered them on the spot! Perfect for Fall and Gucci inspired… what’s not to love?!

Less Sugar, More Wine

Fit Vine Wine reached out to me inquiring about a sponsored post, but before I said yes I wanted to try out the product… so they sent me a few bottles! And I’ve got to be honest with you, I’m kind of obsessed with it. Fit Vine Wine has less sugar, fewer sulfites, and no flavor additives, meaning it’s practically guilt free. Also, I’ve noticed lately that I  will get a headache (which never used to happen! I think it’s the sugar!) if I have a glass of wine, but I haven’t gotten a headache once when sipping on Fit Vine, and it’s GOOD! I don’t know if it’s just me or what, but seriously I’m SOLD. This isn’t sponsored, that will come later, but I just wanted to give you a head start on your wine buying. It’s carried at my local Publix and ABC Fine Wine & Spirits ­čśë

P.S. So far the Chardonnay and the Rose are my favorite… can’t wait to try the others!

$20 Painted Luggage Tags

This past month we had to replace our suitcases while in New York City because the zippers finally gave out and we had no option! So we popped into the Away store and picked up new ones. Honestly, my luggage was 10 years old and from T.J.Maxx, so it was time. Now I just need to get a cute luggage tag, because just about everyone and their brother has a black Away bag! I found these on Etsy and thought they were so chic (and affordable!)

Loving Leopard

How pretty is this leopard dress for Fall?! Honestly, it’s a little out of my comfort zone, being a WHOLE lotta’ pattern… but I’m kind of digging it! I think it would be perfect with flats or heels, for a wedding or work! Such a great find.

Be There In 5, Podcast

Okay, I have a new obsession and it’s Kate Kennedy’s Be There in Five podcast. A friend of mine recommended  that I listen to one of her episodes a few weeks.  Now I’m a good 10 episodes in and CAN NOT QUIT. Kate and I are the same age, and she’s obsessed with early 2000’s culture, which I love! So many references to Bath and Body Works, Princess Diaries, and the glory days of 2004’s top 100. Honestly guys, it is so good. In fact, I even wrote her some fan mail via DM. If you are looking for something fun and sassy, I can’t recommend it enough!
