Pretty Fall Dresses

How was your week? Mine went by quickly, like usual, and I’m looking forward to the weekend! My sister and I are going to take the kids on a Halloween-themed train ride. It should be fun!

I made Half Baked Harvest Burrata with Lemon Pepper Salami as an appetizer for a night at my sister’s house last weekend. And then proceeded to make it one more time at home. It’s outstanding!

My wheels are turning about Thanksgiving already because we’ll be staying in Raleigh for it this year. My parents usually split time between staying a few nights with me and a few nights with my sister. It’s nice to live close to each other so we can easily gather up *almost* the whole family!

I discovered this cream-to-powder blush stick in “guava” is absolutely beautiful! It has a subtle shimmer to it but doesn’t look too sparkly.

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

ABLE Merly Jacket

Athleta Venice Wide-Leg Pants

lululemon Align waist-length top – I’ve worn this an embarrassingly large amount of times since it arrived on my doorstep.

ABLE Harriet Sweater

Treerunner Adventure Park

Created Colorful – loved having my colors done!

FRESH Sugar Lip Treatment in Bloom – the prettiest pink.

Pureology Hair Mask

R+Co Television Volumizing Shampoo – crazy volume with this but does have a very strong fragrance.

Amish Popcorn

Pizza Steel

Makeup For Ever Full Cover Concealer – my longest-used concealer for covering blemishes

Huda Beauty Concealer

ZSupply Tee in the color Lite Cola

Hank’s Downtown Dive in downtown Cary

Hotel Lobby Candle New York

That blush sounds intriguing! Is there a link to it?

I have been trying your Anna Rifle Paper Co coupon “KATE” for the last 2 months. It is not working, is this an expired coupon?
Thank you!
