Mustard is EVERYWHERE this fall and I. Am. Here. For. It!! I even saw a furry mustard coat at Marshall's the other day and was sooooo close to getting it. Not only is it a nice warm color, but it pairs so well with almost any other warm color, even blues and greens. It also looks good with all skin tones, hair colors, and brings out the yellow in my eyes :)
I can't believe Thanksgiving is so soon. Everyone said that once you start working full time, time flies by so fast. I never wanted to believe them, but here we are I feel like I barely blinked and 2018 is already wrapping up!! It makes me stop and think to appreciate each and every moment.
I was listening to a podcast the other day and I thought I'd share one of the quotes she shared:
"Worrying doesn't take away tomorrows trouble, it takes away todays peace."
Worrying about something that is coming up tomorrow, later this week, or even this month is not worth the stress and time you put into it. When I notice myself worrying about something out of my control, I have to remind myself to take a deep breath and save the worry for the moment, even thought it will probably end up working out how it is supposed to anyways. I always find myself worrying about something useless that works itself out in the end or ends up better than I would have ever even expected!
Happy almost weekend loves!! xx
One thing I didn't realize I was missing in my beauty routine: custom shampoo and conditioner! Formulate creates a custom shampoo based on all of your hair needs and preferences... even scent! I went with the strong level coconut and it leaves my hair smelling soooo good all day. My other concerns were strength, oil, and length (gotta grow out those bangs). Right after I used the shampoo, even in the shower, I could tell my hair felt so much softer and once it dried it felt SO much thicker! It's currently not open to the public, but if you DM me on Instagram, or email me, I can send you a personal invite code for you to place an order. Trust me, my hair is thanking me and yours will too!
Also, they are doing a giveaway for my readers! Go to my link here and then Enter My Giveaway to join. They will have a questioner for you to fill out so that you can get the best hair care for your needs and lifestyle.
ThanksFormulate for sponsoring this post and making my hair so soft!
Happy Monday you beautiful souls! Let's talk skincare today!
I've recently switched over to the ExfoliKate three part routine and I can already see a difference in the smoothness and glow of my skin. Using one brand is better for your skin in the end because the products can work together to uncover your best skin, rather than lots of different products that may end up working against each other. My favorite part (other than the fruity smell) of the ExfoliKate system is the Intensive Exfoliating Treatment. Going from Summer to Fall is always the hardest on my skin with breakouts and then drying out. This exfoliator instantly makes my skin feel lifted and smooth. I also love that the ExfoliKate Glow instantly calms my skin and helps to reduce uneven skin tones and dullness. Yes, if you are wondering, it's also great for my sensitive skin!
Kate Somerville is an amazing company that I am so happy to support and partner with. They have partnered with Plastic Oceans Foundation and have pledged to be 100% recyclable by 2022, and trust me that's sooner than we think! Keeping our oceans clean is dear to my heart. If I lived by the beach I'd be sure to make an effort to spend days volunteering to keep them clean, sadly I can't so this will have to be my next bet :) When you make a purchase, 25% of the money will be donated to Plastic Oceans Foundation. Together we can make a change, for our skin and the ocean!!

Right behind this cute outdoor mall area in Poipu, there was this beautiful little jungle area that led into a huge green field. Cannot get over Kauai's beauty!
All for mixing colors, even going into fall! It's still too hot here to actually wear full on fall clothes so I'm mixing up my wardrobe with bright fall colors while trying to keep cool. These Dolce Vita sandals are the perfect throw on for a casual day at work and add just the right amount of color to your outfit! Orange is definitely going to be huge this fall and I'm actually really excited about it; such a happy color!
You can't go wrong with this super soft off the shoulder dress from Olive + Pepper either for a fun date night or weekend look! I love everything that has a tie detail on it, especially if it accentuates the waist. :) It also comes in a dusty grey, which I'm kinda thinking I need that one too haha... I wore this dress probably like three times while in Hawaii because it was so easy and cute to put on for dinner or running out for lunch real quick. If the flight wasn't so long, I honestly might have worn it on the plane and been that person in the dress.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Bless the Jewish Holidays because I have another four day weekend!!
Thank you Dolce Vita for my favorite sandals and Olive + Pepper for the softest dress ever!
Happy Monday! I sure am soaking up the last bit of summer weather with every chance I get! My usual war with myself is coming: being excited for fall style, but not the cold weather. Lately, I don't leave the house without my Hari Mari flip flops. Either I have them on, or I know I'll be somewhere that I'll want to change into them. I love their little pop of color under the soft leather. They are seriously the most supportive and comfy flip flops I have ever owned! Perfect for lake days, going to yoga, beach trips, or just running around town!
You guys know I love a good cause too!! They also support juvenile cancer patients with their Flops Fighting Cancer program. Go check it out here,
I have today and tomorrow off and I am finally catching up on some blog posts for you all! Excited to share some big things coming up and some of my new favorite things for fall.
Thanks Hari Mari for sponsoring this post!
Holiday weekend here I come! I have never needed a three day weekend more than I do right now. I don't have big plans either and I'm actually so excited about it. Is this adulthood?!
Anyways, I have to share my favorite piece of jewelry as of late. Only the most precious love note I have ever seen... and I can wear it! Capsul creates personalized jewelry for your one-of-a-kind story, whether it's from your love, mother, or your best friend. My favorite custom piece of theirs is the handwriting! I told Austin I had a quick little project for him and that he could write ANYTHING for this (because he has amazing handwriting and I'd wear it forever). I left him to it and came back to the most precious script of "my love" and then I fell over and died because it was too darn cute. Yep. Never taking it off!
I chose it in the rose gold because it was too beautiful to pass up. They also offer this on bracelets and rings. I think initials would be super cute on the ring... maybe I have another little project for Austin haha :) Capsul is also offering 20% on their website, so go snag it before it ends!
I hope everyone has a wonderful, long weekend!
Thanks to Capsul for the beautiful necklace!!
