Hey everyone--

The weather has been so unpredictable here! One day it's summer, the next day it's fall! I feel like this is the perfect transitional outfit. & This is a super versatile dress

I don't care how cliche it is, I love fall. I think people usually think of Spring as a time of rebirth but Autumn has always been that time for me. I love it all the falling leaves, the sweater weather, the pumpkin everything but more than that, there's just magic in the air. Hope you're all enjoying it!

Have a sweet day!

Eye-Lash Wishes

Hey everyone--

If you don't have a tulle skirt and you love feeling like a princess... 

I've been eyeing them for awhile now and I finally got one. And, if you're worried about it being too fancy, pair it with a fun tee and you have an effortlessly fashionable outfit! (Or at least I think so ha ha) 

But in all seriousness, I couldn't stop s p i n n i n g around in this skirt! 
& It's a gorgeous color. I love pale pink.. so pretty! 

P.S-  I hope you enjoy little Pistachio in the last photos. He really wants to get his paw in the fashion blogging door. He's been sneaking in all of my shoots recently.

Have a sweet day!

Ice-Cream Truck

Hey everyone--

Let's face it, one of the best parts of childhood is the neighborhood ice-cream truck. Whenever I heard the music, I had to run out after it and get a treat! Now that I can no longer eat ice-cream, it's a little more challenging to get my fix, but I can always enjoy a good ice-cream print! This tee is sooo cute I want to wear it all year round, but I wanted to show it to y'all before summer was over!

Have a sweet day!

I'm soo excited for fall! It's still pretty warm here though, so until I can wear my sweaters this gingham romper is what I'll be wearing. &; This bag (sigh) it's the cutest!

If you're going back to school, have a great first day, or week!

DIY: Retro '90s Inspired Notebook

Hey everyone--

So this is a super super easy DIY! I had so much fun decorating my notebook and I think it's a really great way to make a more "serious content" notebook a lot more cheerful. I needed a new notebook to track my daily health patterns and UC symptoms and I decided to make it as fun as possible. I decorated the notebook with sparkles and stickers of all things that make me happy! It's the happiest notebook that I own and helps keep my spirits up no matter what I write inside. You can use your notebook for whatever you like! It definitely doesn't have to be for something serious. However, I think it's a great idea for a notebook that you use often so you are reminded of all the things that make you smile. 

& Yeah I'm a '90s child and I really miss the crazy sticker obsessed products that were popular back in the day so I decided to bring it back!

.. I mean how cute are these stickers? All of them are ban.do, seriously my most favorite store ever! :D
The notebook is also from there. They're just rockin' my world lately.

Try it and tell me what you think!

Have a sweet day!

Supplies: notebook, some really cool stickers, hot glue gun,  gemstones, whatever else makes you happy!

Steps: 1. Make sure your notebook has a background that you like because there will most likely be open spaces! I chose this notebook with tiny polka dots.

2. Cover your notebook in stickers & have fun!

3. Then use a hot glue gun to glue on gems and any other fun pieces that you want on the notebook!

4. Set your notebook aside and let it dry for at least 20 minutes!
