Summer Time Sadness

Well two more months til we say ‘adios’ to summer and “Hello Fall” ❤️ (personally my favorite season) but wrapping up the summer I am lucky to be able to hike the most I’ve ever done in a season let alone, year! Spending as much time with good ol Mother Nature can really do wonders for your mind and soul. And even though I enjoyed every minute of it and sad it’s coming to an end I’m also ready for cozy sweaters, baked goods and pumpkin spice everything!

I’m going to miss sitting by the firepit, with an open mind and soul to late night conversations and laughter, summer 2019 you’ve been good to me.

Smells Like Christmas Spirit

“It’s beginning to *smell* a lot like Christmas” Seriously this concoction will fill your home with a nice festive aroma just in time for your upcoming holiday gatherings.

What You Need:

1 1/2 cups of fresh Cranberries

1 Orange (sliced)

3 Cinnamon sticks

3-4 Rosemary Sprigs

Water

Directions:

Put ingredients in a medium pot with water. Cover and let it simmer on low on the stove.

*Never leave it unattended for long periods of time

We are spending the holidays with our loved ones so we decided not to decorate this year for Christmas but as the days go by I found our apartment lacking a bit of Christmas cheer so I found a similar aroma recipe online and decided to try it out, and it works! You can be creative and add any festive fruit or spice you can think of! So get creative and let your nose transition you into Christmas cheer.

If you try this out I would love to hear from you 😃

And I will like to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for taking time out of your day and reading,reposting, adding me on social media. It really means a lot to me and encourages me to keep writing and sharing which is something I love to do and to have your support is truly special ❤️

Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing everyone of you who celebrate, a Happy Thanksgiving. For me, its just another day to appreciate what matters the most to me on a daily basis. My family, dog, life, artistic outlet, health and nature. I use this as a day to reflect what I’ve done have yet to accomplish and be thankful where I’ve made it so far. I’m also very thankful for my blog followers I hope you all  have a great and safe holiday with those you love.  🙂

Halloween Haul

Late last month Michael’s craft store started putting out their Halloween decor and one specific item stood out to me the most, a plaster head of Frankenstein’s Monster. At that time I didn’t purchase it but its something I knew I wanted for my home. It wasn’t until Last week I made a quick trip to Michael’s to prowl through there halloween section which a lot of items were 20-25% off, luckily this included the Frankenstein plaster head. I’m so happy with my purchases, Halloween is a holiday that is accepted by society to like things out of the ordinary but for me its just like hitting the jack pot finding new items to display for my home all year round.

What’s your favorite store to shop at for Halloween Decor?

Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice


I’m a sucker for anything relating to Pumpkins! I purchased some home fragrances from Bath & Body Works to add to the ambience transitioning into fall. My home smells like baked goods, without the calories! I’m really pleased to see Bath & Body Works brought back the Sugared Doughnut candles, now if only they made it in to a body set.

What are your favorite fall scents?
