I own a few pairs of Chanel shoes, including the above ballerina flats and their classic sling backs in two different colors: grey and black and camel and black. They both go with so much and are such iconic classics from the brand.


Your Favorite Podcast Episodes

October 15, 2019

There are tons of articles and blog posts dedicated to the best podcasts, but even still, I occasionally find myself overwhelmed. Often, I end up subscribing to that particular podcast, but I find myself wanting a little more direction on specific episodes I need to be looking for. Especially if that podcast has so many to weave through. This post, thanks to all of you who've sent in your favorite, specific episodes, is just that. A breakdown of episodes that motivated you, inspired, made you laugh or left any sort of impact.

Weekend Notes & Links

October 11, 2019

Happy to report that this past week felt very productive. I met with a closet organizer (more on that soon) to help give me the push I need. On top of that, we're redoing the closets in the kids room and the week after, the organizer will come over to help with our kitchen, junk drawers and my hot mess of a beauty closet. Not sure whether it's the change of seasons or if I'm just in full on nesting mode, but whatever it is, I'm riding with it. 

I also met with my doctor this past week and she does not predict the baby coming early, so hopefully that gives me some time to get it all in before life gets even more hectic.

A Step-by-Step Guide to a Great Skincare Routine

October 9, 2019

Skincare can be intimidating, especially if it's something you're new to. If you're someone who wants to incorporate a good regimen, but not entirely sure where to start, this post is for you! Let's call it a 'Beginner's Guide to a Great Skincare Routine...'

Okay, maybe it's not as straight forward as that, but I'm here to break it down, step-by-step, as far as what I think makes for a really thorough morning and night routine. However, for the sake of not completely overwhelming, I did not include any masks or at-home treatments. I'll save that for another day.


Combat Boots For Every Budget

October 8, 2019

Over the weekend, I shared a birthday present that I got myself: a pair of Chanel combat boots. I've been admiring them (from afar) for several years, but never wanted to take the financial plunge. But as the years went on and now, as a soon-to-be mom of two, I've started wearing more "sensible footwear," if you will. To make a long story short, I ended up trying them on and absolutely loving how they look and feel. Combat boots have been around for decades, so I know they'll always be a classic. I mean, I wore Doc Martens in middle school!

PS: Doc Martens still look incredibly cool on so many people, but I was looking for a pair that was just a tad less grungy.

With that being said, I know the pair I got are a crazy splurge and not in everyones budget. There are so many styles out right now, but I wanted to edit my list down the pairs that really caught my eye or that I've seen styled in person.


Weekend Notes | Hello, October.

October 4, 2019

Another week has come and went and now we're in October. Not sure how that happened, but every year seems to be going quicker than the last. I spent a large chunk of the week working at my laptop on very detailed posts like a 'beginners guide to a great skincare routine,' and a few others, some of which I'll be posting next week. 

On another note, I'm due in about a month and the procrastinator in me is finally in a decent place as far as 'baby prep' goes. Not that we need that much, but little things here and there. We're also currently in the middle of redecorating Nate's room since eventually, it will be shared. We have a few older closets in that room that needed to be updated, so I'm definitely excited for a few necessary changes. 

Anyhoo, below are links from the week: new winter boots I recently got, a favorite recipe that I revisited and a new show that we just started watching:
