October Rewind

Hello there!  As I sit down to recap another month here on the blog, I can’t believe we are almost to November!  How are there only two months of 2018 left?!  Does that feel crazy to you too?!

Yesterday’s post went out later than normal, so if you missed it, catch up on all the cozy goodness here.  Erin’s new collection with Gibson and Nordstrom did not disappoint and I know you’ll want to grab at least a few pieces before they’re gone!  If you’ve shopped it already, what were your faves??



I’m all about a Healthy Morning Routine and when I don’t do it, my day feels off.  It takes some planning and prioritization, but once you’re in that groove, it comes easier and is a great way to start the day.  I also shared the all-natural multivitamin I take in case you’re looking for one without any additives.  I forgot to mention in the post that I easily break the pill into two pieces to make it easier to swallow.

I also shared the all-natural deodorant I’m using and I’m so glad I made the switch!

We wrapped up the second HWH Fitness challenge at the beginning of this month and it seems so long ago! I am seriously so proud of you guys and continue to be motivated by you!

I know most of you want to keep up with your fitness throughout the rest of the year (me too!), so here are ways to keep you moving and active throughout your day,  even if you can’t get to the gym or don’t have time to exercise at home.

I also have some exciting news to share here soon about our fitness plans for the new year!  Stay tuned for that!

I was so behind on the avocado toast train, but I’m enjoying it now! Especially since y’all told me to get TJ’s Everything But the Bagel seasoning!

I was honored to partner with Memorial Hermann Healthcare System this month to bring awareness and education about breast cancer. ❤️We did a series of 3 Facebook Live interviews with experts in the field and I learned so much. I’m so proud of you beautiful, courageous women who are fighting this battle. You are strong and cancer will be sorry it messed with you!

Today is our last interview and it will be specifically about how to offer support to friends and family going through this.  I’m hopeful that this one will be the most useful of them all.

I don’t usually travel often, but I was recently in California twice, to visit my Grandma and to shoot the Gibson x Glam collection that launches on November 12th!  That trip was a ton of fun with women I truly respect and admire.

Inside the house, we’re almost finished with the update to James’ room and I’ll show you that next month!  This month, we decorated the porch for Fall with #allthepumpkins. I love being greeted with them every day!

My go-to shopping destination for all the other things in my life is quickly becoming my fashion destination as well.  Every month I bring you a new Amazon fashion haul, and it’s truly a labor of love.  It’s downright HARD to sift through the loads of options, searching for the gems!

This month’s FALL Amazon haul was full of good ones, and these were your favorites:

As much as I love getting all dolled up for a night out or date night, “cute and comfy” fits my casual lifestyle better, and is much more practical for everyday.
