obsession of the moment: october

Yes, if you’re a regular reader you know that I’m obsessed with October and the fall season. With it finally being October, I can officially wear my boots now and jackets and stylist scarves. Yes, I refused to wear a jacket or any of the aforementioned because I didn’t think it was really fall. Yes, that means for those of you in Chicago that I stood at my bus stop shivering waiting for the bus as a cold breeze hit me holding my Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte to my arm to keep me warm. Yes, I’m ridiculous.

I had a little fun at Bath & Body Works when I was home last weekend. I bought all fall scents :) I’ve been wanting to so bad since August when I got my first eblast. BUT per what I said above, I haven’t been able to use any of these yet. I now have cracked them out and couldn’t be happier :)

Holy cow. Side note, just saw on their website that they have our their Christmas scents. Holy Jesus, let’s slow down a bit :)

I LOOOOOVE their candles. They burn so well and smell sooooo good! Originally they’re $20 each, but I never buy them at full price. Quite often they’ll have a 2 for $20 sale, which is my fave sale. I also purchased a few anti-bacterial hand soaps, which smell AWESOME. Bath & Body seriously has the cutest ideas for making their products look nicer. See the metal wrap around the center hand soap? They make those for everything, including candles. It makes everything extra stylist :)

Oh, and the concentrated home spray is awesome. The Autumn scent smells amazing. Just a small spirtz here and there and your home smells lovely <3

Happy shopping!

Until next time

fall into me

So it’s official. It is indeed 100% Fall. People already have on their Uggs and Northfaces. C’mon Chicago, it hasn’t gotten that cold yet! Please save those for the really cold days.

Fall makes me smile, though. The cool breeze that brushes through your hair, the pumpkin patches, cuddling on the couch with blankets, the smell in the air that has a refreshing quality, football games, Oktoberfest celebrations, just everything! What I love most, though, are the clothes that I can now wear again. I L.O.V.E. my boots. Love scarves. Love layering. Maybe it’s because I’m not a size 2, but having on more layers makes me feel 10x more confident. Sometimes I feel summer clothes are only made to look good on the skinny betches of the world. Fall… Fall is for us thicker betches :)

Today we do not mourn the end of a great summer. Today we welcome the start of a beautiful season <3

Until next time

thanks a latte

Starbucks. Thank YOU for making my morning warm and festive. Thank YOU for reminding me why I go to Starbucks and not the 7-11 across the street. Thank YOU for brightening my morning and making me feel great. Thank YOU for making chillier days not seem so chilly. More than anything, thank YOU for creating the Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Couldn’t resist this morning. I had to come into work early so I thought I deserved a little treat. PLUS it has put me in a great mood. A Starbucks drink, really? Yes, really! No idea how, but it did. Mmmm let me just tell you how yummy this is! If you haven’t had one yet, go try one! Even if you’re not a huge pumpkin fan, I bet this drink would surprise you.

They also have a sweet app that I just discovered that allows you to find the nearest Starbucks at the touch of your fingertip. For Chicagoans, it’s not hard to find one, BUT if you’re traveling and are in dire need of one… check it out!! You can download it for free here on Starbuck’s site. It also has some other cool functions :)

Enjoy :)

Until next time
