Think Pink

Recently my Great Aunt overcame breast cancer, and until then I was one of the lucky few who could say that no one in my close family had suffered from breast cancer. However, I've seen plenty of my parents' friends or friends' parents mothers, sisters, grandmothers, ect. fight against it. 

It's crazy to think that 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her life. That being said, most of you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so I wanted to share some great products who donate proceeds towards fighting breast cancer and searching for a cure.

Monday Musings

Well it was a pretty blah weekend here in the Bluegrass State. However, the Cats came away with a W so I can't complain. Plus did you see this awesome catch by Javess Blue? We're just getting started, bro. Ok- sorry for the Kentucky Football rant.

In other news, I know I mentioned the pretty awesome Jcrew sale a few days ago, but it just got better with 50% off everything *say what!?*  (plus free shipping if you use the code OURBDAY).

World Market, probably one of my favorite home decor stores, is having 25% off everything currently! I think it might be time to buy this coffee table I've been obsessed with

I saw Gone Girl last night. I cheated and broke my rule of "if the book seems interesting enough to me, always read it first. All I can say is WOAH.

Between that movie and currently watching season 1 of the Blacklist- it's safe to safe I'm terrified that I'm now going to end up with some crazy manipulative significant other. Dylan if you're reading this, you're not a secret spy or planning to frame me for your murder right?

I'm currently obsessed with this BBC music promo:

I'm super basic, and love all things fall and Halloween. Currently decorating my apartment with these cute lights and pumpkins! Plus some goodies from Home Goods and Hobby Lobby! They're the best for holiday decor, especially when Hobby Lobby has 50% off things!

Hope y'all have a great start to your week!

J.Crew Factory Sale

My favorite emails are 9 times out of 10 those referring to a sale, especially if I still have a dollars to spare. I favorite those emails even more when they come from J.Crew. Which is why I was pretty excited when I got an email this morning that said there was up to 50% off at J.Crew Factory! Okay, not as excited as the time they tricked me with a puppy email (see here), but here are my picks from the sale!

Music Moment

Just like how my wardrobe changes in the fall, it seems like my music tastes do too. I listen to country and pop all the time in the summer, but as the weather gets chillier I find myself listening to more acoustic and folk music. Okay, or at least those seem to be the playlist on Spotify I listen to all the time. Speaking of Spotify are you following me on there? I make pretty good playlist from time to time (if I do say so myself).

Since it's been a while since I've done a music post, so I thought I'd share some of the songs I'm loving right now!

Reflections- MisterWaves
Some might still consider this pop, but this song is way too much fun to sing and dance to. 

Take Me to Church- Hozier
So moody, it's great. 

Haunted- Charlie Simpson

Be Okay- Oh Honey
Another one of those fun songs to dance around to

You Know Me- Air Traffic Controller

Okay, the more songs I'm sharing, the more I'm realizing maybe I just like feel good songs in the fall? Hah. Anyways, I love finding new music so pretty please share anything you're loving right now with me!

Coffee Table Books

Coffee Table Books

I have to give some credit to my aunt, she has always had a great selection of coffee table books to flip through at her house. From books based on art, history, and even ones that would leave you woth a side stitch from giggling. So, while these books might not fit the bill for you exactly, I think it's important when picking out coffee table books that you pick based on your personality and your interest. Therefore I've selected a few based on my personal interest! Plus, a good coffee table book can bring a room together!

This might just save your life

I was on Facebook this morning, and I saw that one of my friends liked this article titled, The Secret To Wearing High Heels Without Any Pain. 

image source

Wait? What? Is this real? The article suggest, "Tape your third and fourth toes (counting from the big toe) together—we recommend nude medical tape for a low-profile look, but Scotch tape works in a pinch—to alleviate pain in the ball of your foot."

I'm not sure I believe this, but then again I can barely stand most heels after an hour or two, so this little tip might just do the trick. 

Annnnnd in honor of this article here are some gorgeous shoes that I would normally avoid like the plague due to their height and the anticipated pain they would cause me.

National Coffee Day

As I was perusing social media this morning I discovered it was National Coffee Day. Which I have to say might be my new favorite holiday. I love coffee. Currently on my 3rd cup of joe...okay I also had a large iced coffee this morning too. The addiction is real. I even have a whole Pinterest Board dedicated to coffee. I take my coffee with just milk or cream and no sugar. I used to be all about me some pumpkin spice lattes or white chocolate mochas, but as I've gotten older my taste in coffee has "matured" as well.

Normally I drink coffee out of the always cute agency mug , but in honor of this great holiday here are some fun ones I've found across the internet!

Apparently I would ask my Dad to read me Where the Wild Things Are at least once a week before bedtime when I was a tot- found here

Anyone else hear this song when they see this? No just me? Found here.

For when you need your coffee fix on the go, and who doesn't love Kate Spade? Found here.

I don't have a usual coffee shop, but if I did- I like to think it would be Central Perk. Found here.

Because bold patterns are fun. Found here
Who doesn't love good calligraphy? Found here.
p.s. have really cute handwriting? This is a really easy DIY!
Now excuse me while I get back to enjoying my coffee :)
