all the things

{a weekly(ish) roundup of some current favorite things}

 

[Disclaimer : this has clearly not been a weekly-ish roundup lately, more like an every few months-ish roundup. Since my last post we got married! We got 4 chickens! I quit my full time job! I'm working on a few exciting projects of my own! We honeymooned on an island off of Florida! We went to Europe for a couple weeks! And so much more...I hope to recap it all here very soon!]

 

style : Having just gotten home from a couple weeks in Europe, it felt like summer when we left but when we got home it felt like fall had arrived. It's got me quickly pulling out my favorite fall boots + sweaters and on the hunt for a few new cozy pieces (a few favorites can be found here).

 

home : We've been hunting for new patio furniture for months now - I want a set big enough to seat lots of friends (we love a good grill out + bonfire night at home), chairs that are comfy enough to sit in for awhile, and something that does well with very little maintenance. I've been eyeing this Article table but can't decide which chairs would go with it best. 

 

beauty : As posted about previously, I try to stick with natural products for everything I use on my face / body / in my home. The lip crayons from Modern Fusions have been my favorite lip product lately - they give the perfect amount of color to my lips and I love that I can buy them at Whole Foods. 

 

food : If you've never tried the Trader Joes 'Everything Bagel' seasoning - run out and stock up. We are flying through our first jar by putting it on everything from morning eggs to fish dinners. Even Real Simple agrees. 

 

travel : We just returned home from almost 2 glorious weeks in Croatia, Italy, and France. I want to recap them here soon but in the meantime I'm heading to NYC for a fun weeklong work project and we're gearing up for an annual fall trip to Utah and attending my cousins wedding in Savannah, Georgia. (any + all recs as always please!)

 

local : I recently checked out Dogpatch Urban Gardens in Urbandale - love having a nearby spot to pick up fresh locally grown produce and other locally made goodies!
