    Fall Favorites | 2018

    It’s time for another favorites post – specifically my fall favorites for this year! Fall is in full swing and I’ve been enjoying as much of it as I can. October started out quite cold and dreary in Minnesota, but once it cleared the colors and shorter days were wonderful. We even got the perfect fall day to take our engagement pictures, with full colors and leaves falling all around us. I’ll share a few pictures of our session at the end of this post if you’re interested! With fall, comes pumpkin and spice everything. Warm colors. Muted and dark lipsticks. Sweaters and scarves. All of these and more, which I’ve…

    My Summer Beauty Essentials

    Happy summer! The summer solstice was this past week on June 21 so what a better time to share some of my summer beauty essentials I’ve been loving. Makeup is one of my favorite hobbies and I would even say I have quite the collection. I’m no beauty guru or blogger, but it’s always fun for me to share new finds and favorites. It’s a little bittersweet to think about the solstice already passing us because from here on out, the days only get shorter. So if you haven’t made summer vacation plans yet or made it out to the cabin, be sure you add it your calendars ASAP. I…

    Spring Favorites 2018

    It’s been a while since I’ve shared my favorites. In a perfect world I’d be sharing these monthly, but I’ve been busy with work and just enjoying time outside. Honestly, I tried writing a March and April Favorites so it’s turned into a Spring Favorites. Spring Favorites 2018 Food Torani Sugar-Free Vanilla Syrup I’ve pretty much cut out coffee creamer and replaced it with almond milk and the Torani Sugar-Free Vanilla Syrup. I’ve been warming up the almond milk on the stove and stirring in the syrup, kind of making my own coffee creamer. What I like even more about this syrup, is that they reformulated it and it’s so…

    2018 February Favorites

    February was the month of new beginnings for me! I’m so excited for what I have coming up. I won’t share it quite yet, but I’ll share an update in the future. With these life changes, I feel like I’ve started trying new beauty products, an updated gym split, and new foods that I’m excited to share with you. During February I rediscovered my love for makeup. I use to live and breathe makeup – all day, every day. Then I went through a period when I decluttered a ton of my makeup, including 75% of my lip stick collection. I also cleaned out the majority of my individual eye shadows, except…

    End of Summer Favorites

    Summer has pretty much flown by! There was not a week this summer that I was not completely swamped with work, the gym, and social activities. Sadly, we weren’t able to swing a vacation this summer, but as we move into autumn, my boyfriend will be finishing up nursing school so we’ll have more time to enjoy the beautiful fall weather that we have in Minnesota. Since I’ve really trying to enjoy these last few weeks of warmth, I thought I’d put together a quick list of end of summer favorites. Fall is easily my favorite season. Say what you want about everyone that jumps on the basic train during…
