I can't believe that yesterday was already Friday! And that we are already in the middle of October? Oh my! But... at least the trees are finally turning and the smell of Fall is in full swing (at least by me).
This week has been super productive blog-wise for me. Even though I have kinda slacked on scheduling blog posts ( I've kinda gotten rather good about writing them on the fly), I have been working on a new about me & advertise page, changing around some font related items, working on new sidebar labels, and making some pretty awesome buttons. No, I won't be changing the whole design in this process -I really love the confetti look- but I'm tired of it all not being put together. Yes, I do know that it looks rather nice as is, but I'm weird like that.
Life wise, let's take a look at my Insta...
one // I made my Grandmother a necklace for her 70th birthday, and I think it turned out rather well. And I plan on offering the necklace in the Etsy shop soon... and yes, I have other colors!
two // Last month some Birchbox subscribers recieved the new dual-ended Chapsticks in their boxes. Sadly I did not. But since there was so much buzz about them, I decided to drag my happy butt to Target and pay almost three bucks a pop. Are they worth it? Yeah.
three // This week the weather took a major turn in the cold direction. Since I have a lack of riding boots, or any other acceptable Fall boots for that matter, I pulled out my Target winter boots circa last year.
four // Apparently Fall being in full swing has given me an obsession (and craving) with anything pumpkin... And Starbucks answered my craving call. Oh yes, my tummy was happy!
five // Tuesday nights for us usually means Family Night (the hubby works midnight Wed-Sat). Tuesday night, I decided to make some hot cocoa and caramel apple "nachos" for use to enjoy while watching Chicago Fire. Loved!
Oh, and you know what blog posts I absolutely loved this week?
