My sister Claire is the fashion queen in our family. She has amazing style and her Pinterest is insanely beautiful! She's a curator at heart :) I asked her to put together a fall fashion inspired mood board for us (above). Fall has the best colors. This past weekend I drank apple cider and pumpkin spiced coffee...I also ate pumpkin doughnuts, pear-spiced yogurt, an apple-oat scone AND a caramel apple!!!! Seriously a good weekend :) Fall is HERE!! I'm ready to layer up and wear booties (just hope it doesn't get too cold, too quickly!)!!
I used this gluten free scone mix to make the apple oat scones. I got the mix at World Market along with a blueberry mix. The best ever. Couldn't be easier either--just add oil and water. YUM! I'd definitely recommend it!
Cheers to cozy sweaters, pumpkin pie, apple picking, You've Got Mail, scarves, football games, chai tea, apple cider & flannel! ;)
^^^ Meet this weeks FRIDAY FACE! (Is this the start of a trend?) His name's Bruno! If you follow me on instagram, you've already met Bruno, but seriously, how cute is he?? He was such a bruiser- that face, those teeth!! I met another English bulldog last fall while visiting my sister in NYC. His name was Winston! Isn't that the perfect name for an English bulldog? He even had a union jack harness on. All bulldogs make me happy. ^^^ Yayyyyy for Fridayyyyyy!! ^^ A few other happy things from my week:
^^Not the best picture, but one of my friends surprised me with the Against All Grain cookbook! That was SO sweet, Brittany!! I can't wait to try out more of the recipes. I've already started filling it with post it notes. I think I'll try the pie crust this weekend and use up some of our apples to make apple pie--yumm!
^^Gave this guy a hair cut last Sunday! Love it super short like this. I kind of get nervous cutting his hair, but it really is pretty fool proof :)
^^I bottled my first batch of kombucha this week! If you haven't tried kombucha before, it's a raw, fermented, probiotic, and naturally carbonated tea. I don't even know a ton about its health benefits except that it has natural probiotics. The whole process involves a live organism that grows and causes the fermentation. The organism is called a SCOBY. Kinda gross, kinda awesome! :) I need to read up more! I'll post some info and pictures later. We like to buy it at Whole Foods, but it's $4 a bottle, so I thought I'd experiment making our own. My friend Renee helped me get started! She's become a pro! ^^^
^^I pulled out my light table and started sketching/tracing some images this week for my graphic design project. It's nice to have a reason to play around. I'm fascinated by the fact that zebras have stripes and I love looking at positive/negative space relationships. I took inspiration from this photograph.
Here are a few great things I spotted around the web this week:
You can live in The Great Gatsby for only $800. Not bad.
I've had my eye on this dainty gold knuckle ring.
Seth again, Better than free.
Recreating this might be my weekend DIY project. YOU CAN DO HARD THINGS. Yes, YOU can!! :)
Any weekend plans? We'll just be hanging out and we have a cheap, fun, get dressed up date planned for Saturday night so I'm looking forward to that! :)
HAPPY FRIDAY FRIENDS!
