sweet autumn.

cs9sebkvuaemixa-1

My favorite season is finally here. Who’s excited? I know it started officially on the 22nd, but I’ve been so swamped with college work I haven’t been able to post as much as I’d like!

So, speaking about Autumn… What are some things you would like to do this season? Do you have any traditions? I would love to hear about them.

Some of the things I want to do are:  go to a pumpkin patch this year, go apple picking, drive up to wine country & have a staycation (drink wine + eat hors d’oeuvres), carve pumpkins, and binge watch Hocus Pocus & all other amazing Halloween movies. If you didn’t know this about me already, I’m a HUGE Halloween fan, and once it hits September it’s basically fair game to watch Halloween movies, decorate, etc. Who’s excited?

Also: my birthday is in 3 days & I have a special blog post coming, so stay on the lookout for that.

The end of September is where you can (usually) start wearing fall related clothing. I guess it really just depends where you live. I’ve gathered a list of pretty things I would love to have in my closet. Take a look….

review: irresistible me diamond hair styler.

Hi loves! I have a very exciting post for you all.

Irresistible Me was kind enough to send one of their hair straighteners to test out, and review!

First off, I was so impressed by the packaging! Looking at the box, I knew straight away that this company cares a lot about quality and presentation. It came in perfect condition, the straightener was in bubble wrap for extra protection. As you open the box, it has tons of information about the product. I found this super helpful!

I used this straightener to curl my hair. I like loose waves, and decided to try it out. (You can also straighten if you want a sleek look!)

Just so you have a reference this is my hair before:

Here is my hair after I curled it with the Diamond Hair Styler. I love how my hair turned out! You can find this hair straightener here.

So pretty! I really enjoyed using this straightener, love the bright red color too! It comes with a booklet with helpful tips, like what temperature to set the tool according to the “thickness/thinness” of your hair– Which is so nice! No one wants to burn their hair and damage it!

Thank you so much to Irresistible Me for sending me this professional styling iron! I hope you check out their website! They also have hair extensions, hair accessories, and much more!

memorial day weekend.

I hope everyone enjoyed their three-day weekend! Whether it was having a BBQ with family, relaxing, enjoying a good book, going camping, or doing homework. What did you do for memorial day?

My plans were pretty chill. Saturday, I spent the majority of the time doing calculus homework! It took FOREVER. (not kidding, hours & hours) My sister came over later that day and spent the night. Sunday my boyfriend, sister and I drove to Tomales Bay to eat oysters, drink beer, and enjoy the amazing weather. If you’re ever in the area I highly suggest going to the Marshall Store.

What a GREAT view! How gorgeous is this? Their BBQ oysters are SO good, so is their clam chowder or smoked turkey sandwich (if you don’t like seafood).

 

Monday was another relaxing day! I took Lola Mae to the park for some exercise. I love her so much, she is the cutest. Her 8th birthday is coming up in November, and I can’t believe it. Makes me emotional just thinking about it. She brings so much joy, love, and happiness into my life.
