Hey guys! Ok this post is going to be picture heavy since it's just a general life update/recent purchases/fall stuff post :)
We are getting nice and settled into the new house and I finally got my makeup room/desk situation done!
Here is a little before and after:
Aww yeah ikea.
The weather here is still pretty boiling hot most days but there have been some nice cool mornings that really make me excited that fall is right around the corner! Fall is my favorite time of the year and I really wish it lasted longer. Our wedding anniversary is October 12th so yeah, its def my fav time of year.
Fall food is pretty excited for a few reasons...the biggest being butternut squash soup! Specifically Atlanta bread company's version:
I mean, how delicious does that look!?
This was a wonderful brunch at a local place around town and the veggie quiche was really on point. End of summer/early fall is a great time for veggies!
This was a quinoa and ground turkey casserole that I made recently and it is packed with protein (good since we are lifting again!) and so delicious. We froze half of it to eat next week too!
Fall is also a great season for smells. Bath and Body Works is a dangerous place to be around this time of year...but I can't pass up their candle sales! They are normally $20 each but every once in a while they have a 2 for $22 sale! So of course I had to get some...
This candle...smells....ugh it's so good. Just get it. I also got the farm stand apple candle for something a bit lighter and fresh.
Another one of my favorite things about fall/winter is sporting darker lipstick. I recently ordered one of the Elf matte lip crayons in the color 'wine' and it is super pretty!
It's not really as matte as I expected but it's super creamy and easy to apply. I love that their lip crayons are smaller than jumbo lip pencils because they are way easier to apply. This could be even darker paired with a dark lip liner.
Fall is also the start of boot season! I had a pair of shoes to return to Payless and they had their BOGO sale going on so of course I ended up getting 2 pairs of shoes...
I can't get over how cute these both are. They are comfortable too! I'm especially excited to wear the little cutout booties somewhere with some skinny jeans or a flowy dress.
Thats all I got for now, I will hopefully put together a fall makeup look soon!
