Happy Friday!! 🙋🏼 So hard to believe that we are already at the end of September! This has been a whirlwind of a month for me, complete with birthday celebrations, a shoppe opening, and other fun happenings! I hope this past month has been wonderful for you all! Here's to all things October & fall-related! 🍂🍁
With October on the horizon, I've been looking to pinterest for some fall inspo. I have really been loving fall decor that incorporates white pumpkins with neutral colors. This centerpiece, shelf-styling, and mantel are some of my very favs. I've also been on the hunt for some great fall recipes to try out. I definitely plan on making my chocolate chip pumpkin bread and I've added these salted caramel brownies, this pumpkin pull apart bread, and cinnamon apple crumb cake to my list of recipes to try!😍 What are some of your favorite fall recipes??
I thought this article about things that are really the biggest waste of money was really interesting. I am definitely guilty of wasting money on at least 6+ of the things on this list! 😏 A while back, I mentioned being more present and attempting to live a more minimalist lifestyle. I've tried since then, to really be mindful of want versus need...in all aspects of my life. And let me tell you, it is HARD, but has definitely increased my willpower to not just buy all the things (I'm looking at you Target)! 😂
Have you all done the iOS10 update? 📱I'm usually pretty good with keeping up with all the new updates and features..but I have been so busy lately that I totally didn't read up on it before updating. Biggest Love:🙆🏼 The updated messaging design and features. Biggest Dislike:🙅🏼 The removal of 'swipe to unlock'!! This was by far the biggest shock to me and I still try to swipe every time I pick up my phone. It will definitely take some getting use to. What do y'all think?
Like I mentioned above, this past month, I had the joy of opening my first belle. a signature collection shoppe at Artisans in Greenville, NC. Really this all happened so fast. Between designing the space, creating new pieces, photographing everything, and tagging inventory...I didn't have time to even breathe. 😱 Honestly, this all seems so crazy to me and is still sinking in, but I am so overjoyed to have my designs come to life in this shoppe!! ☺️ If you're local to Eastern NC, I would love for you to stop in and check out our space. If you're not, you can still shop all of the designs on the website or check out our Instagram page!
What are you loving this week?! xo, S
