Archives for September 2016


Friday’s are pretty care free. 

I’m typically in total mom mode so the effort usually isn’t high when I’m getting ready in the morning. 
This outfit though is relaxed, but I’d still feel like a cool mom making my rounds at the grocery store getting little man his favorite frozen snack. Pun intended, I guess?!
Anywho, we’ll be doing arts and crafts and getting out all our FALL DECOR today, since it’s technically OCTOBER and Nick can’t say a thing about it. 
Have a great weekend, friends.

Quick Favorite

These sandals from J.Crew are quickly becoming a favorite.
They SLIP on, they LOOK cute and they are SUEDE.

Plus, they are still on sale soooo… 

And if I wasn’t a fashion blogger, per se, I would wear these Gap long sleeves and AEO shorts every. single. day.

The Perfect Fall Sangria

I had some wine left over from my girl’s night (shocker)
but no wine shall go wasted – que the sangria!

But with the arrival of Autumn (well, sorta) I wanted to put a little spin on it.
I grabbed the left over red wine and added some fall fruit – apples and peaches and added some cinnamon sticks!

How to make it:

(1) Red Wine – from Wines of Garnacha 
(1.5) Honey Crip apple
(1) White Peach
(2) Cinnamon sticks 

Let sit overnight. 

Before serving add a splash of La Croix (I used lemon) to add some fiz and garnish with a cinnamon stick. 

It’s the perfect amount of spice with sweet. The Garnacha wine is perfect for this too, because their bottles aren’t too expensive. You can have FUN with them and still enjoy them at the same time.

Cheers to FALL and to never wasting a glass of red wine 🙂


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tazo® Tea
All opinions are 100% mine.

When my husband is traveling, I typically don’t have time to make anything fancy in the morning.
Especially with all the craziness that ensues with two dogs and a toddler, life at any given moment can be pretty hectic. 
So when it’s just me up at the break of dawn, or when Hudson goes down for a nap, or if it’s post dinner time and I’m loungin’ on the couch (it happens, but rarely) – it’s Tazo® Tea time.
I’m a green tea fan, my first choice for sure. Just something about it – calming, soothing and just tastes good. Makes me feel good, too. Can’t explain it. So I’ve been loving Tazo Tea’s  Zen™ blend as of late, which is blend of green tea, lemongrass and spearmint. Tazo Tea has always been a favorite – you can clearly taste the quality. Plus, you can’t pass up their pretty packaging 🙂 Well, I can’t. 
Zen Tazo Tea
So when it comes down to me having a quiet moment (anytime throughout the day), I tend to have a cup of Tazo Tea in hand. It actually makes me take a mental break and keeps me present, which ultimately reminds me just how good I have it. 
Do you like Tazo® Tea? Which is your favorite – Passion®, Awake™ English BreakfastZen? When is your favorite time to enjoy tea? 3pm at work? Sunday morning brunch? Monday night football? 🙂
This week, it’s any opportunity I can get. 
So #sipjoyfully with me.
