As soon as September hits, I'm ready for pumpkin everything. I want my food, drinks, and decor to be fall-y. After weeks of fluctuating temps, I hope fall is here to stay in the South. Here are some pumpkin things I'm loving:

Pumpkin Candle 
I found this at Marshall's three weeks ago for $6! It smells so yummy!

Pumpkin Crescents
I made these again last week--they're delish. Click here for the recipe.

Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte + Glitter Pumpkin
This pumpkin was $1 in the Target dollar section! It's in my room and makes me so happy. I just started drinking the PSL iced, and it's so great! I seriously love it.

Old Navy Boyfriend Sweater
This pumpkin-colored sweater is so perfect for fall, and it's only $27!

What pumpkin items have you bought to get in the mod for fall? Have a fabulous day!

Blue + White Everything

I have been on a serious blue+white kick lately. Mom and I have been all over town looking for blue+white china, but I've collected so much, I'm running out of places to put all of it haha! 

{A little picture of my ever-growing blue+white shelf}

I thought I'd share some of my favorite finds:

Delft Bowl
My grandparents had a huge blue and white bowl in the entry of their home where they'd put mail, keys, etc. It got passed on to another family member, but for some reason, I've always wanted a bowl like that! My aunt's boyfriend gave me this one, and I love it! The scene is so pretty, and it looks great in my room.

Bowl and Ball
I found the blue and white ball for $5 at Marshall's a couple of weeks ago. I'd love to collect several and put them in a clear vase. The bowl was also a gift from my aunt's boyfriend.

Liberty Plate
I found this at a consignment store for $4--I love the colonial scene on it!

Framed Notecard
I received these thank you notes from Barefoot Creations about two years ago! I loved them so much, I decided to frame one!

Blue and White Jar (c/o Chloe and Claudia)
I love this jar so much! Chloe and Claudia is selling a similar one here.

This was a gift from my grandparents! In the future, I'll probably store something else in it, but right now, it's just holding some of my favorite nail polishes.
 I wanted to share a little bit about Chloe and Claudia, the company who sent me the jar! Based in Texas, Chloe and Claudia carries gorgeous vintage home accessories. I feel like they are my personal shoppers for blue and white pieces! They have lots of blue+white, but also carry other types of accessories, like bamboo! Here are some of my current favorites:

Ginger Jar

Fox Hunt Print

Umbrella Holder
I really want to find a large blue and white vase to use as an umbrella holder like this!

Faux Bamboo Letter Holder
LOVE this!

Lacquered Boxes


Chloe and Claudia is offering my readers 15% off with the code Claudia15 at checkout! What are some of your recent blue+white finds? Have a wonderful day!

Fall Target Finds

I popped into Target yesterday and saw some great stuff, so I had to share! I love all things fall, so most of these are fall-related! 

Only $7.99! They also have pear and larger pumpkin figurines that come in white and gold.  

This was only $7.99, as well. I'd love this as a decoration or to hold things besides cookies. 

Gold Vase 
These come in large ($24.99) and small ($6.99) sizes. 

This dispenser ($19.99) was in the Halloween section, but honestly, I'd use it year-round. I love the chalkboard front. 

These lanterns ($29.99) are about half the price of some of the Pottery Barn ones. 

This candle ($7.99) isn't scented, so I'm not sure if I would actually burn it, I like the look better. 

Have you found anything wonderful at Target lately? Have a great day!

Lilly Girl Crafts

Alexis, owner of Lilly Girl Crafts, contacted me a few weeks ago about reviewing an item from her shop. If y'all haven't heard of Lilly Girl Crafts, you must check it out! It's full of Lilly-inspired items (obviously), and is a perfect place to buy crafts for your Littles or best friends! Alexis was sweet enough to send me a pillow in First Impressions, one of my favorite Lilly prints: 

It looks so cute on my bed! Since it's small, I also think it would be cute in an office or a chair in your room. It would also be precious in a little girl's room! There are a few prints to choose from, as well! She also sent me some Lilly magnets

How cute are these?! They'd look so great on a magnetic board in your dorm room or office! 

Lilly Girl Crafts has so many fabulous items, it was hard for me to decide what to order! Here are some of my other favorites: 

What's your favorite item from Lilly Girl Crafts? Have a terrific day!

Blanket Scarf

I'm not usually one for knockoff items, but sometimes, I just can't justify the price of trendy items. I love the look of the Zara blanket scarf, but I didn't want to spend a crazy amount on eBay, since the scarves are sold out! One of my best friends recently found a great knockoff on eBay for only $12.99 with free shipping, so I had to share! I can't wait to pair it with riding boots, an oversized sweater, leggings, and pumpkin spice latte.

Blanket Scarf

 I ordered the tan color, but it also comes in red and green: 

Which color is your favorite? Let me know if you order one--I'd love to know how you plan on styling it! Have a great day!

Fall TV

I miss the days when fall TV started in early September. Now it doesn't start until late September or early October, which makes the season seem even shorter. However, I'm so excited for some of my TV shows to start! I usually record most of these, then watch them during my free time. Here are some of the shows I'll be watching this fall: 

The Good Wife 
Mom and I have watched this since it first started, but I stopped watching it last year and had to catch-up over the summer.

Grey's Anatomy 
I can't wait for this to start back up! I love April and Jackson together, so I'm excited to see what happens with them this season. 

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills 
I love Kyle and can't wait to see the BH ladies back in action. I hated how petty it got last season, so I'm hoping this season is more fun! 

Manzo'd with Children 
I really liked Caroline and her family when RHNJ first started, but then I felt like she got too mean/grouchy during the last couple of seasons. I'm sure I'll tune it for at least the first episode, then decide if I'll watch the rest of the season. 

What shows will you be watching this fall? Have a fabulous Monday!

Cute Booze

If you knew me in real life, you'd definitely know how much I love wine. I love fun cocktail napkins,  tailgating, monogrammed wine glasses, and any excuse to have a mimosa. So naturally, I love Cute Booze, a company devoted to the combination of all things lovely and booze. The company carries tailgating items, Lilly, personalized products, and items for all weddings festivities (bachelor/bachelorette, wedding showers, and weddings). Cute Booze was generous enough to send me some items from their store, all of which I love! 

This cooler is SO perfect for tailgating! I'm always looking for something to keep wine and food cold on the way to the tailgate, and I love that this is collapsible. 

Close-up of the front 

It's also huge on the inside and offers plenty of room for booze: 

Cute Booze also has a fabulous selection of Lilly. They sent me this glass, and it's so perfect. 

I have a few acrylic Lilly wine glasses, but the glass one seems so much more grown-up haha. As you can tell, I enjoyed a glass or three while I watched some Netflix in my room the other night. Wild Saturday night, I tell you! 

In my package was also this adorable wine towel: 

How cute?! And totally true haha! 

Here are some of my other favorites from Cute Booze: 

I love the chalkboard paint on the front, so you can really do a wedding countdown. SO cute! 

What's your favorite item from Cute Booze? Have a fabulous day!
