Frolicking Amongst the Pumpkins

IMG_4864

Well howdy!!! This Sunday afternoon, I went to the happenin’ Pumpkin Patch where my sister sells her jewelry each year. I hung out for awhile with my mom and sister, enjoyed the crowd and the music, and also took some photos. ‘Twas a great time! 🎃

All pumpkins are beautiful, am I right? 🙂

DRAMATIC PUMPKIN PATCH POSE.

On a side note: Saturday evening, I had the wonderful privilege to set up my art table at an art party downtown. It was SO MUCH FUN. I sold two of my framed art, which was totally unexpected!!! I also had new items I made: two brooches, two headbands and a jewelry box. ❤

My table was in the perfect spot: right up front where the musicians were. The weather was perfect, the set up was perfect…all in all, just a great night. One of the best parts was when I excitedly geeked out when I saw a fellow artist wearing a Ghost shirt. LOL!

Catch ya later! 🎃

I Love You a Latte, Nature

Hello hello! Like my socks? 🙂

Fall is for SOCKS. All kinds! For me personally, I really love over-the-knee socks. They add such a fun look to an outfit.

The temperature is dropping quite fast, and by next week, there is rain expected (yessss!). I’m really looking forward to the upcoming fall weather. ♥♥♥

I tried a dusty ol’ vintage look with my camera today. 😀

Bring out the fun cardigans and socks! Love it. I was so torn as to what kind of shoes to wear with this…I ended up choosing right, though.

What I learned today: socks with sandals are a-okay! 😀

You know what else is a-okay are Maple Pecan Lattes…

With the sprinkles…oh my gosssssssssshhhhhhhhh. They are MORE than just a-okay. I will probably get one of these again sometime. This is from Starbucks and it’s a new drink that just made its debut a few days ago. I had to give it a try! 🙂

So this evening, I took myself on a nature date! I went for the sole purpose of fully appreciating the transition into fall around me, and taking photographs of it all. I highly recommend trying this sometime, to anyone reading! Bring a camera and snap away. It’s refreshing and inspires you to get creative, in my opinion.

I feel such a deep joy when I listen to the silence of nature. There’s nothing quite like it! Also, when you’re out in nature, do you ever feel like it’s all so alive around you? I really felt that way this evening. ♥

Falling for Fall

♥ Happy Autumn Equinox!!! ♥

It was 97 degrees where I live today, but it doesn’t change the fact that autumn is here at last! And I did everything in my power to celebrate it; the changing of seasons tends to intertwine with our lives and you can just “feel” the change in the air.

First off – my autumn leaf headband has made its debut of the year. It was about time to air out this bad boy, and the first day of fall is always the day for that!

I’m wearing fall-inspired eyeshadow that has glitter in it! Yay!

Last night, before walking into the house of a birthday get-together I was going to, I noticed the chill in the night air and that fall scent. ♥ I then looked up and saw the International Space Station drifting across the sky, which I hadn’t seen in a long time. So that was like…magical.

If you ever want to see the International Space Station but you aren’t sure where to start, download the Sky Guide app! You can have it notify you when the ISS is passing over, and the sky map will point out where it’s at.

By now, I recognize it immediately in the sky…it’s like seeing an old friend…

The dress is from Forever 21. ♥ I love it so much…

I had coffee earlier today and I sat out on the Starbucks patio, enjoying the day and read quite a bit. I ended my day with a Pumpkin Smash smoothie from Jamba Juice, and a short walk at Woodward Park. There is a gigantic smoke cloud from a wildfire billowing in the background on the right, somewhere in the far off mountains. Yikes…

How do you celebrate fall? I have many fall scented candles…which I have lit, as I type this. I like to eat more apples (than I already do…geeeez, I eat a lot of apples), spend a little more time outside, and (pretty soon) visit the pumpkin patch. ♥

Happy fall…to you all!!!

See you next time!

November Mood

autumn-leaves

Hello everyone! I hope the start of the new month is going well for you all!

November has always been one of my favorite months for two reasons:

1) It finally begins to look and feel like fall where I live and the trees start turning colors…

2) It’s my birthday month. 🙂

I like November because it also starts to have more rainy and cloudy days. Fog rolls in too, which isn’t good to drive in of course, but it looks cool from a distance.

I went for a walk with a friend of mine on Sunday, and I took some pictures of the trees changing colors. Outfit photos too, of course!!!

Indeed, I spotted a bunny just hanging out. This one actually let me take a picture, unlike most others that take off running the second I reach inside my purse to take my phone out!

‘TWAS A NICE EVENING. As you can see, there were leaves everywhere so it made for great photos. 🙂 That top I’m wearing is actually a sweatshirt and was quite warm.

Is everyone ready for winter ahead? I like the idea of winter, but I’m horrible at dressing for cold weather. I really dislike feeling too bundled up, although I love how the styles look. I think I’ll wear a coat like once out of the entire year when I walk to look at Christmas lights! Other than that, I’ll wear tights with my outfits and maybe a scarf and gloves, but never a coat. No wonder I’m always saying ‘I’m freezing!’ during these upcoming winter months. 😉

See you next time! ❤
