My Apple Harvest Scent Launch with Aera (and all about their newest mini diffuser!)

The kids and I drove through a neighborhood with a lot of Halloween decorations and now they want spiders and webs all over our house. So, looks like I need to scramble to find as many Halloween decorations as I can! I tend to go light on Halloween decor, but the older the kids are getting, the more they are getting into it.

How was your week!? I was so excited to share the Apple Harvest capsule I developed with Aera yesterday on the blog. I hope are able to join the live on Instagram all about the Apple Harvest scent launch with Aera! It’s at 2:00p eastern time!

Such a great promo for Anastasia brow products!

If you love the Madewell Perfect Vintage jeans, but wish they had a bit more stretch, THESE are for you!

We’re heading to South Carolina this weekend for a final hurrah before the busyness of fall and the holidays. It looks like it’ll be warm enough to take the kids to the beach, and they are excited about that. I’m taking some of the wine my sister and I got at Biltmore down to my parents to share with them as well.

And here are a few things I mentioned on Instagram Stories recently that you may have missed: 

The Biltmore Estate – my sister and I had a wonderful time there last weekend!

Biltmore wines – Railcar and The Hunt were my two favorite discoveries from our weekend at Biltmore!

Floral Maxi Dress that I wore to the Biltmore

Travel hairdryer

Navy floral long sleeve dress from Amazon

Flora by Gucci Gorgeous Gardenia – one of my favorite fragrances!

Congratulations on the launch with Aera! I ordered the new scent along with the mini diffuser. I can’t wait to try them out! Do you have to use the app for the mini diffuser?
