A few weeks ago I posted Everything’s Coming Up Pumpkin where I basically discussed a bunch of Pumpkin flavored treats I wanted to try. Although I haven’t tried or bought any of those specific products (except my mom did buy me the pumpkin donuts which were delicious!), I did host a little fall inspired Pumpkin Party where I bought a bunch of different pumpkin/apple flavored treats. So I thought I’d do a little Fall Haul-Food Edition.
Fall Haul 2017 (Treats, Drinks, and Misc.)
I had bought these a while back and they were so good that they got eaten up in my household pretty quickly! Lol. So this is *not my image.*
This has been my new Dunkin Donuts order this fall! It is the perfect amount of spice! *not my image.*
Even better warmed up!
This fruit infused water recipe was one I got from Rachel Talbott on YouTube. You can watch for the recipe HERE (recipe starts within the first 30 seconds of the video.)
Fragrance Notes include: Crisp Red Apple, Golden Nectar, Warm Clove Spice (I also bought a hand soap for the bathroom- Wild Black berries and Basil.)
So there you have it my Fall Haul! I have to say I was getting pretty bummed this Fall. It’s my favorite time of year, but between the stress I’ve been feeling in my life lately, not feeling that well physically, and the weather being so on and off, I wasn’t feeling the Fall spirit. But I’m starting to. I’m starting to be able to check off some of the things on that Fall 2017 Bucket List! And I am so happy!
Stay Tuned! My next post will be about my “Pumpkin Party!” It was a blast!

This past weekend I headed out to the outlets to get some new summer outfits for work. I work in a school setting and I find in the summer it’s difficult to be professional, yet still manage to stay cool in the dreaded summer heat. So this summer I decided to get a head start on beefing up the summer pieces.
I know these look white, but they are actually mint green.- $50
I loved how this can add a pop of color to a simple outfit- it’s a cross body bag which is a plus. #handsfree. AND it was on sale for $10, so how can you go wrong!
This was a little cart or stand in the middle of the outdoors within the outlets. It was purple and yellow and reminded me of something that should be in Aladdin or The Hunchback of Notre Dame. And then once I read the name, I knew it was a place for me. I was instantly swept away into the world of incense, homemade soaps, candles and perfumes. It was such a gem.
Two candles: Caribbean Coconut & Black Raspberry Vanilla. I kept one and bought the other for a friend. The small vile is a roll on perfume in the scent Rosehips and Jasmine. I can’t tell you how obsessed I am with these scents. Breathtaking!
This is where I did most of my heavy lifting! I got some great staple pieces for the summer/for work. Some tops, a sweater, and some comfortable Capri pants. All of this actually cost me under $120, which I thought was a steal. Hello Summer Wardrobe!
And last but not least I picked up a few more tops from…
(these three all together cost me about $22)
So there you have it! That’s it for my haul! I caught some good sales and had some coupons, so I kinda just went for it. Granted this is not something I do often but I feel like it’s nice to treat yourself every now and then. And I know with Summer coming up, I want to be prepared to dress both comfortably and professionally. I feel like I went with pastels, and light colors, and a lot of whites and light blues. I think it’s going to be fun pairing these new pieces and mixing them in with some of my other summer wardrobe pieces as well. Happy Summer!

I’ve mentioned how my love for television is a force to be reckoned with. Well there’s another obsession I have. I love collecting graphic t-shirts. Shirts that say silly things, or have fun charcters on them. Now when you put those two interests together, I lend a new level to the term tv fangirl.
Over the past few weeks or so I’ve come across a few t-shirts that I just had to have. I caught some sales and just went for it!
Here’s my haul:
I saw this shirt last summer in a department store and it was like 20 bucks, I was busy shopping for other things, so I couldn’t afford to just buy whatever I wanted. However, I recently saw it in a thrift store for $6 and I knew it was fate. Topanga Lawrence is such a free and wacky spirit. My inner flower child just gets her, and I knew I had to sport the “Find Your Topanga” slogan for everyone out there who feels like they can’t own their weirdness. Find it and own it! ;D
This next shirt was also $6 at that same thrift store and let’s be real Kelly and Zack were one of THE best 90’s power couples. If they don’t scream Relationship Goals, who does?
This shirt was $8 at the thrift store and I just had to! I love me some Brandon/Kelly/ Dylan drama. But let’s be real #DAVIDSILVER Was The Real STUD. 😉
These next three I found at Kohl’s. I always find great t-shirts there. The first two I saw and died. WHERE WERE THESE WHEN I HAD MY VIEWING PARTY for the Netflix revival. You guys know how I love my Gilmores! These two were 2 for $20! (And you can probably still get them!)
This last one was just an ode to my love for one of my favorite Disney movies/ princesses. Now all I need is to find a Pocahontas tee and I’m golden! 😉 It’s on sale for $14.99! (And you can probably still get it!)
I love these T-shirts. I love feeling like I can bring a little nostalgia back into my life. I have such fond memories of growing up while watching these tv shows and movies. It’s nice to be able to wear that and keep that same feeling alive and with me.
