A Few of My Favorite Things

I haven't done a favorites post in awhile, so I'd like to share with you a few things that are making me smile this fall.


I picked up this mug at Starbucks a few weeks back, do you blame me? I love Starbucks mugs/cups, and was elated to pick up a fall mug. Sticking to my self-imposed Smart-Spending rules, I donated a mug or two to Goodwill in its place.


These fabulous gold driving shoes I brought home from Target last week for $15.99.  Aren't they just the most beautiful things you've ever seen? My first thought was that of excitement, I am now able to adjust the D-List of The One Hundred as I now have driving loafers!

 
 
Adding on the entire collection of Julep Maven's October box wasn't necessarily smart spending, but I had sold a few things on eBay and the collection only cost me $30. I feel that it was well worth it and cannot wait to start using these polishes this weekend!
 
 
Is it me or do you just need a hearty serving of one-pot macaroni and cheese after a rough day at work? I have been making this recipe for months now, and will be posting it on the blog next week!
 
 
 
I stated in this post how I dream about decorating a house if I was single again, but I should share that I am beyond blessed that I have an office all to myself.  A room that is my haven, a room that is completely my own to do what I desire. I decided to redecorate in time for fall, repurposing some old artwork I had stored away from you guessed it, my single days. These paintings just epitomize everything that is beauty and grace, and I just love looking at them everyday.
 
What are some of your favorite things recently?

  5. Whoa that mac-n-cheese looks super delicious! Looking forward to the recipe next week! And I got my Julep polishes in, and I'm also excited to use them! I also got the instant dry dropper thingy, and I've tested that twice now, and it actually does work, which is just amazing!!

  6. I was like, oooo she got the whole collection. Have fun using all that Julep polish. I got the American Beauty collection and love both of the colors! Those loafers are super cute! I'm simply loving that it's Fall and trying to consume as much pumpkin as I can. I'll be sick of it by Thanksgiving, hah! Have a great weekend!
